Obama on Benghazi Capture: When Americans Are Attacked, ‘This Country Has Their Back’(VIDEO)
Mediaite ^ | June 17 2014 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 06/17/2014 12:18:39 PM PDT by PoloSec

President Obama delivered brief comments today on the capture of a man suspected to be involved in the 2012 attack on the Benghazi consulate. The president said the capture sends a clear message to the world that whenever an American is attacked, “no matter how long it takes, we will find those responsible and we will bring them to justice.”

Yesterday U.S. special forces captured Ahmed Abu Khattala in a surprise raid. Khattala had previously denied in a number of interviews he gave that he had any direct involvement in the Benghazi attack.

In his comments today, Obama praised the work of brave men and women who serve the United States all over the world and said, “They need to know this country has their back and we’ll always go after anybody who goes after us.”

"We were praying, as usual, the merciful Allah be praised, with our AK's stacked in the corner. It seemed a Benghazi day like any other, inshallah. And then from the YouTube flicker devil screen the most slanderous, apostate video played forth, and we were sad and angered as never before. And my worshippers looked about the room, searching one another's eyes. And we KNEW with the consulate 5 blocks away WHAT WE HAD TO DO…!!" Impossible? WATCH.

He's going to say this, and get Hillary off the hook, and he'll be PAID.

Later after the kidnapping of who know whom from our side he'll be swapped back.

In your heart you were already thinking this.

From CNN on July 31, 2013: Lawmaker: If CNN can interview suspect in Benghazi attack, why can't FBI?

Chaffetz was referring to CNN's recent interview with Ahmed Abu Khattala, who Libyan and U.S. officials have described as the Benghazi leader of the al Qaeda-affiliated militia group Ansar al-Sharia -- one of many groups that filled the vacuum of authority following the overthrow of Moammar Gadhafi.

“They need to know this country has their back and we’ll always go after anybody who goes after us.”

The problem with this obscene comment is that 4 people died and BO didn’t have their backs.

I agree.

With Obama’s re-election in doubt, The Establishment demonstrated the amazing length and insane hi-jinks they’ll go through in order to get the win; prisoner swaps gone bad, Candy Crowley coverup, critical clincher Cleveland coming in all precincts as 100% FOR Obama...

Throw the Hail Mary, Long Bomb..? They’ll do more than that —they’ll do ANYTHING.

Now that we have Hillary’s election looking to play out as a real squeaker, well, this latest orchestration is just PAR FOR THE COURSE.

The next 2 years as Hillary forges on as the economy craters and more people are forced onto Obamacare we’re going to see some REALLY AMAZING STUFF.

It is amazing how anytime Obama’s poll numbers go down he has some great announcement regarding terrorists.

Good job to the special forces who did the capture-I just can’t believe the gall of “the One” saying he “has their back”. Ughhhhhh......

I don’t think this does him any real good. All the other scandals are spinning out of control, and as you said a couple of days ago, too many people think Ben Gazzi was on Dancing with the Stars last year.

Can you imagine Hollywood doing a movie of this? Two hours of watching the guy sip strawberry frappes, then special forces guys show up in the last five minutes of the movie. Everybody leaves the theater and immediately votes five times for anyone with a D after their name . . . .

Only the POTUS had the authority to act!

0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

They confirm everything Col. Hunt said about automatic notifications to the WH and add more details.

There are three scandals here...

---------------------------------------------------------

Denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.

The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.

ONE man had the authority to act that night.

ONE man deserted his post!

EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say

0bama abandoned his post. 0bama Is A Deserter!

0bama did nothing!!!

Capturing a guy over a year later who should have been killed while attacking Americans who the guy slaughtered over a year ago is “not having their back”.

This Obamahole needs to shaddup. He is a lying buffoon.
