Obama is distracted with his campaign schedule. His only response is to blame Romney. Romney is the cause of all Obama’s problems, as the simple simon media leads the cheerleading.

When you're part of the planning process you don't need a briefing to know what's going to happen...

Was yesterday just a day of many unfortunate coincidences?

Netanyahu gets the cold shoulder.

The embassy in Cairo puts out an apology for a movie most of the rioters know nothing about.

Former deputy national security adviser: US response to embassy attack ‘bizarre and unacceptable’

0bama sends a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel taking that off of the table removing a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.

We don't support Israeli attack, US tells Iran

The "movie" turns out to be a red herring excuse to cover for the rioters.

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Yesterday was a terrible day. Israel was rebuffed and there were signals being sent to the MB and Iran. 0bama is giving the "go ahead" signal to the Muslim world to take out Israel.

Rot Ro Relroy... Obama Bin Lyin...

No wonder he is touchy on the subject and no wonder it took him so long to react. They are trying to cover this up like a cat in a litter box!

Excerpt:
White House officials met this week with envoys from the Muslim Brotherhood, in the latest sign that the Islamist group is returning to prominence in post-Mubarak Egypt after years in political exile.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said representatives from the organization met with “mid-level” officials from the National Security Council in Washington.

The meeting was held Tuesday, though it’s unclear whether they met at the White House or elsewhere in the capital.

The Obama administration cast the decision to meet with Brotherhood representatives as a reflection of political reality in the country, since the group will play a “prominent role” in Cairo going forward.

The Brotherhood was officially banned under Hosni Mubarak before he was overthrown, though it continued to be a force in Egyptian politics. The Brotherhood has past ties to terror group Hamas and espouses the implementation of Shariah law.

Why would this traitor need briefings when he probably gets them from the muslim brotherhood.

Gutfeld must be reading this regularly. He mentioned a 50% attendance-rate on security briefings this afternoon. Glad someone’s payinig attention.

While I've never prepared or presented a PDB, I highly doubt his presence or absence at them would make much difference.

I doubt he listens, or even comprehends the information provided.
Didn't he task one of his Czars with that responsibility?/sarcasm//

RE post 15. Unfortunately, you are probably correct in your assumptions.

The PDB's have nothing to do with his agenda. He has no interest.

Obie has never been up to the job. He has been engaging in escapism from day one. Oversees trips, golf, daughter's soccer, date night, etc, etc...

If he ever sat in on a serious national security briefing he'd be curled up in a corner, peeing on himself.

I think Conservatives might be getting set up to be suckered. If someone just read the report to him while he was at breakfast then Obama was "briefed".

Look-out I smell a rat here...

“I think Conservatives might be getting set up to be suckered. If someone just read the report to him while he was at breakfast then Obama was “briefed”.”

They will lie and say he was briefed. We learned long ago this administration has no reservations about telling lies. Remember,

1) The end justifies the means.
2) The winners get to write the history

And what was Hillary doing? If she was traipzing around the Middle East during the DNC, she should have heard something was in the wind.

Never mind asking if our feckless CIA knew something because they never do.

When I lived in Tonga on the tiny island of Tongatapu, I knew the British High Commissioner there. He got a daily morning world briefing via satellite feed. I would hardly have considered him a very significant political figure in the world, and the (p)resident of the U.S. doesn’t attend a briefing for a week.... He probably already knew before hand what the plans were so he didn’t need a briefing.
