What was Obama really doing during Benghazi?
Investor's.com ^ | 5-5-14 | Andrew Malcolm

Posted on 05/05/2014 7:37:37 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Numerous compelling new questions emerged in recent days about the crumbling White House version of the Benghazi tragedy.

They include the faux meme about a "hateful video," who concocted it, why did Obama stick to that fiction so long, why weren't rapid response troops in position on 9/11 of all days, why were U.S. diplomats even in Benghazi after other consuls abandoned the dangerous city, why was Benghazi security reduced in the days leading up to the well-planned terrorist attack and why were Amb. Chris Stevens' security pleas ignored and no rescue attempted?

The upcoming Select House Committee on Benghazi will no doubt pursue these and other lines of obvious inquiry. And the answers will certainly play a large role in 2015-16 politics if, as expected, ex-Secy. of State Hillary Clinton decides to seek her party's nomination.

But for us the most pressing, curious and disturbing question today remains: Where was the Commander-in-Chief and what was he doing during an eight-hour attack that left four government employees unprotected, abandoned and dead?

We know now, thanks to Bret Baier's recent interview with ex-Obama aide Tommy Vietor, that the president was not in the Situation Room, the secure, in-house command post where presidents usually go to... ~snip~

Clinton and then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta have both said they talked with Obama by phone that awful evening. And Obama's said he ordered all necessary security for American facilities and representatives abroad.

~snip~

So, let's turn the question around:

What could President Barack Hussein Obama have possibly been doing that deadly night, what could his physical and mental condition have been that's so terrible and shocking that the know-everything chief executive would rather Americans think he was asleep at the national security switch?

That's something to awaken any American at 3 a.m. -- or earlier.

This could be the entire reason for the cover-up. Imagine a republican president missing during such an attack. His absence would be the headline for the next two years.

The real question is what were Reggie and Ubama doing during Benghazi?

Bush took five minutes to leave the classroom where he was talking to the kids when he was informed of 9/11, and Michael Moore made the movie Fahrenheit 911 just to say that proved Bush was an idiot.

He was one of three things:

1) Incapacitated because of some pharmaceutical/recreational drug reason,

2) Exhausted from debate preparation and campaign lie preparation and dead asleep, or

3) Just plain kicking it in the residence and chilling because he just didn’t give a sh!t.

I vote number three.

Recent info suggests he was doing “debate prep”

Has anyone tried to find out where Reggie was at that time? Was he still Barry’s body-man. Someone must know his whereabouts that evening. What might be his alibi?

When a NYT or WP reporter starts asking this question--then we'll know this story not only has legs, but BOOTS!

Hopefully, big enough to bury--politically--0 and his party deep in their own--stuff!
