Obama Not Informed of Extent of Egyptian Violence Until August 15
Breitbart Big Peace ^ | 8-17-13 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 08/17/2013 9:23:16 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

The Washington Examiner is reporting that Obama "apparently" did not know about the extent of the violence in Egypt until National Security Adviser Susan Rice informed him of it on August 15.

CNN's Jack Tapper reported that the violence that has filled world news outlets for two days and has resulted in hundreds of deaths is just now reaching the president via the individual who infamously blamed Benghazi on a YouTube video.

So much for having his advisors close by. Thought there was daily contact with them.

Watch CNN??!! Give the guy a break! He’s on vacation, from his hectic pace of campaigning and fund-raising.

And, it is widely understood that he gets his news from one source only - ESPN. Unless rioting has become a sport, he isn’t going to catch any coverage of it on ESPN.

I don’t believe this propaganda one bit. This is just some more disinformation to protect The Won politically. More leading from behind.

Just like he was “informed” on Benghazi— the video causing it and all — and Rice again. What competence.

This one made the needle on my BS meter jump clean off the gauge,

How many time have we been told that Air Force One has the latest in technology to keep the President in tune with what is happening. We all know that crews are sent ahead of Obama to establish communications where he is going. Valerie Jarret is in Martha’s Vineyard too so she certainly has to know what is going on, after all she is Obama.

Obama set this whole Egypt thing in motion Set the whole Middles east afire, and now is eating ice cream somewhere in Massachusetts.

"President" Hollowgram and the flying monkeys who control him give America another big fat middle finger.

Will there ever come a day when even the dimmest among us awake from their slumber, causing the tipping point to be reached?

Once I thought that it was only a matter of time; the thought's dimming daily.

I think you just may have the wrong take on this one.
Since Obama has not been right yet on the Arab Spring, it is probably a good thing he was not told.
My guess is, his advisers waited as long as possible before telling him.

As for his watching the news CNN or otherwise, probably not. That would take too much time away from him looking in the mirror with one of his aids telling him how great he is.

No worries. President Jarrett has known about the full extent of the violence since it began.

Come on, really....

Does ANYONE actually believe this crack-piping, chooming, rodeo-klown is anything BUT a &$#!-up playing a role??

He reads/memorizes a script; A willing press asks him NOTHING! He dekes one or two semi-serious questions, then NO follow ups. EVER.

Hussein ALWAYS HAS played roles: President of Harvard Law Review? Please. Just BS to pad his phantom "credentials." "Straight"? "Christian"?? The Powers-That-Be (let's call them a "Snydicate") have created a myth with phantom creds, a phantom life, and even launch his Presidency with a Greek Temple set.

Now? Still a puppet, the face of evil -- good Lord -- PRESIDENT! But BEHIND him are the real Puppetmeisters, aka "Syndicate". Now...who the hell ARE THEY??

This entire Government is...a Charade, the faces of Congress are cast/coerced Actors. Our President is indeed THE Manchurian Candidate. Lest we forget:

While I don’t believe it for a second, I’d still file this under “who cares?” given that he only makes things worse anyway it’s just as well that he not know.

You mean he "didn't know till he read about it in the paper"?

Such a well-informed "president". Imagine how the "news" media would treat a Repub Prez who was this stupid and un-informed. Oh wait, they treat them that way no matter what......

IMO this is much worse than inaction.
A Zer0 classic move of leading from behind. Waiting to see which side has the upper hand so he’ll know what bandwagon to jump on.
Then claim he was instrumental in the result.

All that technology will work IF the president is interested.

I can imagine Jarrett and her flunkies realizing no one had told Obama. “Whose turn was it to tell the idiot?”

I agree with you 100%. I believe the press conference questions are written by the white house and handed out just before it starts. Watch the left wingers look down at their notes when they ask him a question.

Sssshhh...No need to tell Hussein anything since he makes no actual policy decisions. Those who do are hidden behind Oz's curtain; not that the media doesn't know as well, so they behave and go along with the script.

So we have a clueless President, a clueless media, and a millions of sheeple who still somehow believe a now mythical American Republic still exists. Along with the Easter Bunny.

BIGGEST. CHARADE. EVER.

Well, he was playing cards during the bin Laden raid...

We still don’t know what he was doing during Benghazi...

So his Arab Spring baby is on fire and he doesn’t know what is going on?

Sort of seems feasible for the ignoramus.

Isn’t the resident on another vacation right now? Who likes to be bothered while on vacation?


Apparently he doesn’t like to be bothered even in the White House - viewed the Reggie Love video where he said that while the the Bin Laden thing was going down he and the president were in the president’s quarters playing 15 rounds of spades....!
