Fox News ^ | 10/26/2012

Posted on 10/26/2012 2:48:54 PM PDT by antidemoncrat

President Obama said Friday he was "not personally aware" of any request for more security by U.S. diplomats in Libya before the Sept. 11 strike on the consulate.

The question is not what are you personally aware Bamster; the question is are you personally aware of anything or is Valarie Jarrett truly your brain? If so why is anyone even asking you about anything. Seems to me we should be going directly to the Iranian President of the USA. Valerie Jarrett

He knew the minute that the flash network popped out the text... they knew 300 milliseconds after the CIA field operations sent the intel to them. Someone has to sign off as having received it and notations are made as soon as the potus is notified. Sparky will pay for all of these lies when a real American runs the Justice Department.

“Asked whether the administration’s shifting explanation for the September 11 strike reflected the intelligence he was receiving, Obama replied: “What’s true is that the intelligence was coming in and evolving as more information came up.”

Yeeeeeeeeeah !

“Evolving Intel “......

Dats de ticket !!

This traitorous maggot TOTUS deserves to be exposed in front of the entire world!!

Don’t know about any of you, but this is becoming clearer by the day.

Obama’s education was funded by someone high up in the brotherhood. He owes them bigtime and they are now collecting.

Obama made his speech in Egypt. Obama came out and called for Mubarak to resign where he didn’t in other places. The Brotherhood were from Egypt.

Levin (who was chief of staff to the AG in the Reagan administration and knows how things work at that level of government), says angrily:

"Obama knew for seven hours and did nothing. And when it was over, he went to Las Vegas to campaign and for a fund raiser."

Obama had a fund raiser in Vegas to attend and obligations to David Letterman to fulfill. The man has priorities. What is a few dead Americans compared to his wanting four more years?

I want Fox to go into detail how these American’s died. The shear panic they must have felt when they realized that help was not coming. What a horrible way to die. Folks should know that Chris Stevens was raped and God only knows what our Navy Seals went through in their final moments. It's an ugly story that needs to be told and the pictures of Ambassador Stevens need to be shown being dragged around the streets of Benghazi - I don't buy that story that some good Samaritan took him to the hospital. What a giant American Tragedy for the sake of re-electing someone that has no respect for American life. I am just so upset about this whole situation. Prayers up for all the families affected by the ineptness of a narcissistic pack of politicians.

Standing orders are to go and help who has requested it, someone had to stand that order . Who made that decision? CIA and DOD are on record as saying they sent the request up the chain. Connect the dots.

This group including sending the Muslum Brotherhood Controler FBI in to cleanup , check my posts people in Justice helped the leader of this group get out of GITMO. This is big and deep.

Folks should know that Chris Stevens was raped

Reports of that showed up the first day or two.

However, the timeline does not support it.

Stevens was alive when he was pulled out of the safe room. He was weak from excessive smoke inhalation. Those who pulled him out included the former SEALS, and they took him to the hospital. Stevens either died on the way or shortly after he was left at the hospital.

The bodies of Stevens and the other four were put on a plane and arrived in Washington on Friday. [Who put them on the plane? Where did the plane come from? I have not seen any info on that.] Note that from the time Stevens was extricated from the safe room (still alive, barely) until he died, he was with 'friendlies.'

Obama/Soetoro redefines words. He knows what they mean in his head but won`t tell you and if you assume the natural meaning according to the dictionary well, that`s your problem.

“Personally” means him as a person and human. That person wasn`t informed.
Was the President of the United States informed? Yes he was.

Your fault you assumed wrong, not his.

I agree 100%. What we are seeing and few realize it... this is the beginning of the end of the progressive movement in the US. The dim party will have to reform... they will have to fight and purge before they win another national election. This is the biggest scandal in my lifetime... and it may be the biggest in our History... before this is all over.

It doesn’t matter if Obama wasn’t “personally aware’ of security requests before the Libya attack. What matters is that he failed to respond to the attack because he didn’t want his political boat rocked this close to election, and then lied through his communist teeth to cover it up. Four men are dead as a direct result of the president’s action, or lack thereof. I am madder about this today than in previous days. It’s really sinking in now. God works in mysterious ways, and always it seems to be in a way that no one could foresee or guess. Four men have died, and it may be that the sacrifice those men paid for in blood is what tips the scales to save this country.

You hear the order to stand down, you have given years of your life to the country.

You go and help out, you set up a defensive position and you wait for hours while getting shot and hit by mortors, you are bleeding and still waiting for help.

Your last breath you ask yourself why , where is the help , my President turned it;s back on us.

That is what happened and the media are covering this up.

The former Seals didn’t get him out - it was looters or maybe AQ guys searching for documents who found him. They were pumping their fists and shrieking that ugly islamic cry, and then they all pressed forward with their cell phones to take pictures of him. After that, the next photos we see are him being dragged and then carried like a piece of dead game through the streets while the jihadis grab their crotches (a sign of contempt) and run up to stick their cell phones in his face and take pictures.

I think his body was probably retrieved by the Seals after they interrupted the victory march and dispersed the crowd. He was definitely dead by then, and they took him by car to the hospital and left him. The doctor said they didn’t know who he was and called numbers on his cell phone, although this is clearly false because as another Freeper pointed out, he would have been required to have his cellphone password protected.

Looking at him when he is dragged out, you can see that his upper lip has the dark ring of smoke poisoning, but it looks as if he is still somewhat alive, although only barely. When you see his body later, there seem to be scratches and scrapes and blood (people don’t bleed after death), although the doctor stated that he had no injuries. Obviously, the doctor was told what to say, and what else was he going to do?
