Skip to comments.Rep. Cotton: Where Was President Obama During Benghazi Attack?
Posted on 05/12/2014 1:34:38 PM PDT by Hotlanta Mike
While some lawmakers have questions about what happened before or after the 2012 bombing of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Rep. Tom Cotton said he wants to know what President Barack Obama was doing during the attack.
"As a former soldier myself, I particularly want to know what happened during the attacks. Why didn't the president send reinforcements from Tripoli, or from our fleet in the Mediterranean Sea, or even from Italy?" the Arkansas Republican said Monday on "Fox & Friends."
While conceding that support forces "might not have reached Benghazi in time," Cotton said, "You just don't know how long a firefight is going to last whenever you're sending reinforcements to begin with."

Bump for later
Why? Cuz he hates Americans and loves the bearded jihadis.
It’s a really big question.
We already know (accidentally) that he wasn’t in the situation room (like most of the Bin Laden raid while he was golfing).
So. Where was he? It’s a big deal.
In the Obamanation Year of 2009, noted Democrat Intellectual, Ex-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, (also an award-winning Co-Author of the now transparently failed Affordable [sic] Healthcare Tax Law), set the Pelosi Federal Standard of Excellence with this now famous quote:
We have to pass the Affordable [sic] Healthcare Bill to find out what is in it, - - - away from the fog of the controversy.
Now, in the Obamanation year of 2014, We, the People, are being accused by the same Noted Democrat Intellectual, Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, of willingly approving funding of a Political Stunt [her words], formally known as The Benghazi Murders Select House Committee, as appointed by permissive, Doormat Republican House Speaker Boehner.
This is an obvious, transparent contradiction to the incisive legal logic that Pelosi used during her former Democrat zeal to ram through a single party mandatory tax on We, the People.
If We, the People, choose not to correct Ex-Speaker Pelosis latest accusatory, (and, as always undocumented), speech then few will remember what we here today have failed to do in this hour of peril in loyal Patriotic Opposition, (commonly called POd), to the evil, Oppressive, Marxist Regime of the now failed Community of Obamanation, moving forward.
When a noted Democrat Intellectual of the lofty stature of Democrat Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, establishes such a high Standard of Federal Excellence, as brilliantly, and impeccably displayed in her above quote about the Affordable [sic] Healthcare Law, it becomes incumbent on We, the People, to fervently beseech our sorry Doormat Republicans to fairly apply that same Standard of Pelosi Federal Excellence to other matters of Federal involvement.
Besides, the Democrats own Fairness Doctrine requires that this be so as follows: - - - be very strictly framed in all PC speeches, (as per the dictates of Obama Mentor, published Communist Saul Alinsky), regardless of ethnicity, Country of birth, race, creed, non-Democrat Party affiliation, disgust with politics, low level of voter information, non-subscriber to the New York Times, non- viewer to MSNBC TV, religion, non-religion, gender, or gender of choice.
Then let us, the Oppressed We, the People, do hereby resolve, forthwith, to always enthusiastically be MOVING FORWARD with the Democrat Mandate of the Pelosi Federal Standard of Excellence because:
WE HAVE TO INVESTIGATE THE BENGHAZI MURDERS AND THE 20 MONTH LONG OBAMA-CLINTON-BOEHNER COVERUP OF SAID MURDERS TO FIND OUT WHAT IS IN IT, - - - AWAY FROM THE FOG OF THE PHONY VIDEO.
BTW, since B. Hussein Obama always dictates that he has ordered his crack AG Holder To get to the bottom of this, is that not just another Communist Saul Alinsky Method of deflecting any potentially punitive Investigation away from Where the Buck Stops?
If Obama is ever found to be the one where the buck actually stops, all he has to do is to promise that he, ALONE, will make sure that it never happens again.
Great laugh! Is this one of your creations?
The whole Benghazi attack and the background of it needs to be investigated, that I agree with. I’m just having problems agreeing that where Obama was has any real meaning. What if he just decided to get drunk and left operational control to whatever team does that stuff when the President is otherwise pre-occupied by choice?
Obama’s explanation is BS. He didn’t know what Al Qaeda was going to do in Benghazi. They might have started shooting Americans, one an hour.
The only way Obama could have been so disinterested is if he knew that everything was going to stop. And the only way he could know it would stop is if we had won....or he surrendered.
Obama surrendered at Benghazi and that’s ONE of the big secrets. And when Al Qaeda is kicking your ass, you don’t just get to call a time out while they walk off the field. They attacked in Benghazi for a reason. They wanted something. They got it. No rescue attempt. No military response. All Americans out of Benghazi. They won and Obama surrendered.
No, found it on the www.
Stoned out of his gourd.
In any part of the service that's called "Dereliction of Duty" and it requires a Courts Martial.
This clown if the highest ranking officer in the chain of command. No CM for him , a Impeachment trial is required.
(I know , I Know In another dimension)
Oh, and for the Hildebeast, please elaborate on that $6 Billion the Dept of State says it cannot account for.
We are talking probable multiple felonies among Obama and his political appointees.
After he is impeached he can be brought to Court Martial.
Rumors are that he was so drunk that he was incapacitated. We might never know unless a tell all book gets released.
I keep hearing that same question over and over but I remember right after Benghazi happened it was reported that Obama had gone to bed because he had a fundraiser the next day in Las Vegas. Either people have short memories or they weren’t paying attention to the news or maybe it’s just an attempt to cover up the facts.
I think it will also turn out that he was doing debate rehersals earlier in the evening instead of being on top of events.
“So. Where was he? Its a big deal”
No it isn’t.
It would be a big deal if the answer could lead to his removal from office.
The president should NEVER be drunk. If he was, he should immediately lose the job. His job is too important with millions of lives on the line.
Btw, can you imagine how the press would have hounded Bush from day one to find out exactly where he was?
Anything “reported” by the news media is open to question. Liars lie. That is what they do.
