Bolton: There’s no excuse for the White House to say that Obama and Biden didn’t know about Benghazi

John Bolton says that it doesn’t fly for the White House to say they didn’t know about the security needs of Benghazi. He says of course they won’t be involved in the nitty gritty of hundreds of security decisions around the world, but Benghazi he says is very different:

But in a high threat mission where you’ve had evidence of Al Qaeda attacks against other missions, where for goodness sakes the Red Cross has withdrawn from Benghazi – the Red Cross that lives in the environment of war thought it was too dangerous – that’s something that the President, Vice President, and certainly the Secretary of State should be aware of ALL THE TIME.

    Oh the web Biden weaves! Now they have two choices – either look disengaged OR look incompetent – and by the look of things, they are managing to look BOTH!!

    • Don

      Biden is a dunce. The only reason that Obama and his sycophants didn’t know was because they didn’t want to know. We are looking at the most incompetent administration in our history, including the moronic Carter. When Obama picked a Delaware redneck as obviously stupid as Biden definitely is to be his runnung mate, it is embarrassing on the world stage. The Czech Prime Minister said,”the United States may be able to survive 4 years of Obama, but can they survive the fools that elected him”.

    • Hmm, I seem to remember Obama and his minions going on about his accomplishments in Libya. The one that they were most proud of is that they acted in Libya WITHOUT putting “boots on the ground”
      I suspect Obama was hoping to use this in his campaign for re-election. to show how he acted successfully without being like Bush and Iraq
      This is why Obama didnt want US Marines protecting in Libya and refused to send them to protect the Embassy, if he did his politcal talking points would have been rendered null and void.
      Obama’s decision to not give security forces was purely political.

  • Dang straight. I love Bolton for his telling things as they are. No excuses, what dear leader and his administration have done over the past 3 plus years, and this latest stunt is nothing short of treasonous. Yeah, I keep saying that. I only hope that some day, someone who can actually do something about it will hear it.

    • anyonebutbarry2012

      boehner needs to go and many like him, they have let this admin get away with everything, never calling them out on anything.

      • Amen on that abb!!!

      • gunclinger

        Can someone tell me WHY the house has not pursued articles of impeachment?

        Is it because of Dingy Harry in the senate?

        This administration has done SO MANY impeachable things, I cannpt understand why nothing has been moved “forward”.

        • Because they’re cowards. The only ones who have guts to speak out get eviscerated, even by those in their same “party”.

        • The RINOs in the House & Senate, Boehner and McConnell. In fact the RNCC is not providing money support for Michelle Bachmann’s re-election campaign.

    • FreeManWalking

      Yes, with some Sweet Justice not social justice; Perhaps on his next ME tour a group of islamist brothers will treat him to the same street tour they gave ambassador Stevens.

      Seeing he is the one that ordered the Drone attack, maybe they will treat him to a longer rougher ride.

      • Orangeone

        Agreed. Especially since he has “evolved”

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    this corrupt admin is a embarrassment among other things, we look foolish because of these clowns. how people can possibly support a admin that lies, that covers up, that let 4 of our americans get killed, that let 200 plus get killed with F&F, there is a serious problem.

  • aPLWBinAK

    “Doubling down on denial”…..I would agree with that, but then there is also Obutthead’s absentee presidency….he’s always had better things to do than attend his morning briefings, like golfing for instance…

    • sjmom

      If the opportunity arises I hope Romney mentions Obama’s absence at the briefings. The American people would finally hear what we know.

      • Orangeone

        Romney needs to make it surface! He has plenty of opportunity if the debates are done properly.

  • PVG

    FOUR MORE WEEKS!! Please God!

  • DCGere

    No excuse except for an empty suit with no clue. November coming soon!

  • sjmom

    If the WH thinks the blame game is going to distract from their incompetence they are sorely mistaken. The buck DOES stop at the Oval Office.

  • 911Infidel

    Biden is a liar just like his boss. The rumor is that State, Pentagon and the intel community is fed up with the lies of this rotten regime and they are comming close to a revolt of sorts. I’m not talking about Department heads, I’m talking about the rank and file.

    • kong1967

      Well, Bolton did say they will get revenge.

      • 911Infidel

        By voting them out and testifying against them in Congress, I hope. Heads should be rolling.

        • kong1967

          Agreed, and the right ones. Obama’s and Biden’s…along with all their czars and appointees….especially Holder.

          • 911Infidel

            Imagine if this president was named Nixon and he were a Reublican. He would be impeached and his cronies would be in jail. Oh wait, almost forgot, the Dhimis are always right even when they’re wrong. Its that double-standard of theirs that keeps them from feeling the pangs of justice aided and abetted by their media propagandists and activist judges.

            • kong1967

              If this President’s name was Nixon he would have been impeached a very long time ago.

              • 911Infidel

                Not if he were a Dhimirat.

                • kong1967

                  Of course.

          • Orangeone

            And Hitlary, Rice, Carney, DWS, Cutter and the list goes on.

    • Orangeone

      From your lips please…..I cannot believe the Intelligence Community is going to fall on their sword for O’Bambi.

      • 911Infidel

        Donilon sure is. And Leon Pinheadha sure is. The intel community has bought into the COIN and Multiculturalist BS, unfortunately. So intel is not intel anymore, its pure politics that is filtered with idiotic assumptions like COIN and being buddy buddy with the jihadis. Not surprising since their CnC still wears a band on his finger that says “There is no God but Allah and Muhammed is his prophet”.

        There are still patriots left, but their voices are being quashed. Go ask Col Tunnell about that.

        Anyways, the whole question boils down to the Benghazi mess. Where were they? And if they were on the ball where was the CnC? Out playing golf maybe? And if that is so, where are the people speaking up? I hear crickets. Its all about careers and CYA thanks to traitors like Donilon. And Pinheadah? He sure as hell isn’t going to speak up and diss his boss.

        Intel is all politics anymore…its useless. The best intel is being gathered by the Gaffney’s, the Shoebats and the Khalili’s. Not by (CIA Or should I call it CYA?) or NSA or NRO; while patriots like Col Tunnell and Gen Boykin are being ignored.

        • Orangeone

          Lt. Col Wood spoke up at the Congressional hearing.  I hope he has plenty of security protection!
          Just read on Breitbart that the Marines were at the embassy in Barbados on 9/11/12 but not Benghazi.  Were the O’BambiBrats vacationing in Barbados???  SS for the O’BambiBrats but not for the Ambassador in the country deemed to be the most dangerous.  Crickets from his family….

          • 911Infidel

            And $$ for Eqypt, Global Warming, Pakistan, UN (or should I say OIC), the faux Palestinians, Afghanistan (no friend of anyone but the Talibs)…but nothing for Benghazi. So who is taking that hit? Yeah, no one…except 4 American diplomats and their families.

            The Mahdi-ist genocidal regime in Tehran has not been hurt by the sanctions. Sanctions are working out as well as they did in Iraq and in Imperial Japan before WWII. How’d that work out for us?

            What… does anyone think that Achmedinajihad is BSng when he says that Israel will be wiped off the map? Or when he threatens Sunni Saudi or Europe or the US? Where’s that intel? Joe Biden says to trust him. Yeah sure…

            So what’s worse Martha Radditz: a nuclear war in the ME or a non-nuclear war that destroys the Mahdi-ists wet dreams of genocide? Where’s that intel at? Defense wants a smaller more robust force? WTF? Yeah because that’s what Obama/Biden want. Defense is going with the flow. They’re fools to do so.

            A resurgent Putin’s Russia? So lets just cut our airforce. There’s another WTF?

            Or a where’s the intel and the ships needed to counter China’s quest to conquer and/or dominate the Pacific Rim? Another WTF? Where’s that intel at? The intel community is dropping the ball all over the place.

            The entire defense and intel upper chain needs to be fired. Time to put in the smart people and lose the multiculturalists. Leave Afghanistan, regroup, rearm and start fighting this war with traditional military counter-insurgency doctrine. Then take all the copies of COIN, and hand them to Gen Petraeous as he walks into retirement.
            Thank you sir for your service to your country…Bye….have a good life.

            And Hillary…she can forget 2016. Her so-called “smart diplomacy/smart power” meme is an epic failure. Having an Ikwan advisor on the staff at State and the WH is not only really stupid, but downright dangerous to our country’s security. Himmler is in the WH and State telling us how to deal with Herr Hitler.

            Long reply, and I’m just warming up.

            • Orangeone

              Keep going 911Infidel, you are on a roll with great intel!  We need Allen West for Sec of Defense and we need him today!

              • 911Infidel

                OK. Or how about that Cairo speech? WTF was that crap all about? More of that smart power crap I suppose. Gee, Mubarak was just a bad player. What is Morsi? Just a member of the Ikwan, the same people that assasinated Sadat and that brought about Zawahiri and OBL.

                So how’d that speech work out on 9/11/2012?

                Or did the intel community not pay attention to Morsi’s own words when he was running for the Presidency of Eqypt. You know the ones about abrogating the hudna with Israel and taking back Jerusalem?

                Where were all the Arabic speakers in the intel community at while 2 million Eqyptians were chanting” Khaybar, Khaybar, ya yahud, Jaish Muhammed, sa yahud.” Or the ever popular “Al-Quada rayheen, shuhada bil-Malayeen?”

                Who are these idiots in the regime kidding anyways? A vid that no one saw caused all this crap? What a bunch of idiotic garbage. So what do our intel geniouses attribute the other 1400 years of Muslim terror to? A misunderstanding of Islam by a few nutcases?

                At what point did our military and intel community lose the idea that in order to defeat an enemy, you first have to study their mindset? We did that in the Cold War. RR sure did. Thomas Jefferson did that in the 19th century. So what’s the problem now? Ah its that PC bugaboo thing run amok.

                Kowtowing to the leaders in China, or any other leader is NOT nor ever has been part of US diplomatic protocol. The US decided early on in its history to greet all leaders, kings, etc as equals not as worms.

                Kissing the hand of the Saudi king was an acknowlegement that BHO is not an equal to the king….that he’s a subservient Dhimi. So’s all this cultural claptrap that the military is practicing towards the Koran and Islam. These people understand fire and steel. Their hearts and minds belong to Allah and his genocidal false prophet, not to us. They follow the strong hand, not the weak one.

                The war in Iraq didn’t turn because of COIN, it turned after the second battle of Falujah.

                This entire government and Defense Department needs to get their heads out of their collective posteriors post-haste, or we will be subsumed by the totalitarians of Islam.

                And the Pacific Rim will be China’s swimming pool while Putin plays cat and mouse in our territorial waters or in the skies above our missile defense installations. Hell, why bother using satelights when you can just do a flyover and take all the pictures that you want of our Defense installations da Komrade Putin?

                Bolton is a much better choice for State than Hillary will ever be. But he doesn’t quite get the Islamic thing. McCarthy, and Gaffney get it. Boykin, Tunnel and Allen West get it…as do a few others in Congress and the Senate.

                But anyone who says that the majoprity view at Defense is that they wants less M-1 tanks, aircraft, ships and submarines, and other weapon systems is lying through their teeth.

                The first job of a National government is to protect its people and its sovereign borders, not re-elect Obama.

                • Orangeone

                  Way to go, I love getting a better education from your 911Infidel!

                  So I watched the Benghazi hearing and learned that the embassy’s blueprint was available on Google. WTF?  No wonder the Ambassador is dead.   And they kept spewing confidential information risking our national security during the hearing.  I swear that b!tch Lamb and Under Secretary of Statement for Management (WTF kind of position is that anyway >?) were releasing the information on purpose to cover for the security leaks directly from O’Bambi.

                • 911Infidel

                  Thanks. That hearing was a parade of incompitent regime idiots. Totally disgusting. They should all be sentenced to write an apology letter to the every one of the families of the fallen. Then hang them.

                • Orangeone

                  I nominate you to Issa’s Committee in charge of sentencing!

                • 911Infidel

                  I got visions of the movie Hang ’em High. LOL

  • kong1967

    Obama, if you don’t know anything then why are you the President? Maybe you should go to those meetings every morning, huh?

    • kong1967

      This is just a test reply on the site of Disqus itself. Trying to learn more about how to use their functions and capabilities. Trying to see if this will actually post on “The Right Scoop”. Here goes nothing…

      • kong1967

        It worked, and I wasn’t even here. Cool!!

  • colliemum

    Good to see John Bolton again – I hope this is an indicator that he’ll be Sec of State, or National security advisor.

    As for the EU and the Nobel Prize: kiss of death! Think al Gore and Global warming,think Obama and Hope ‘ Change: all discredited and down the drain.

  • dontdrinkthecoolaid

    Maybe if Obama attended some of his own intelligence briefings, he and the demented circus monkey would have know about Benghazi. Then again, if you think like a LIB, Obama didn’t go to his intelligence meetings so he could deny knowing about it. Which is another open net for more conspiracy theories. Was the entire ‘crisis’ planned by the White House.

    • conservative58

      Obama didn’t attend his own intelligence briefings because he thinks ‘he’ is the most intelligent being on earth. Plus, it would cut into his golf and campaigning time.

      Isn’t it strange how he distances himself when things go wrong, yet is the first to jump in and take credit for himself when things go well?

    • Orangeone

      Exactly on point! Lawyers are well-trained to be able to deny knowledge and spin it so their statement is “true”. Disgusting profession. There really should be a lawyers’ tax of 25% added to their federal income tax.

  • iaintlyin

    if the Lamb broadwas on the phone with the embassy in real time, while it was under assault, and the pOTUS did’nt know about it (apparently for at least a week) why haven’t 243 (pick a number) people been fired yet?

    • conservative58

      ‘…why haven’t 243 (pick a number) people been fired yet?’

      Because there is NO real leadership in this administration!
      Hopefully, we will correct that on November 6!


    • Nukeman60

      …why haven’t 243 (pick a number) people been fired yet?‘ – i

      Because none of them were Republicans.

      • Orangeone

        Boom! And why hasn’t Boehner filed articles of impeachment? That’s right, he’s a RINO with no man parts. Boehner needs to step aside and let Allen West or Trey Gowdy take over.

        • Or Michele Bachmann. Ooops, that’s right, I’m sorry, she’s in the fight of her life to keep her seat and the freaking RNC hasn’t given her a dime to help. Payback I guess for her little stunts of questioning the establishment.
          Lord, I hope she wins.

          • Orangeone

            Well ABinC missed 90% of the votes while she was campaigning. She made a choice and it was the wrong one.  She needed to keep her district solid, MN is a blue state after all, and get behind a Tea Party candidate that could be elected.

            • I might be dense today Orangefriend, I don’t understand what you said?

              • Orangeone

                Sorry, forgot to insert Bachmann. She missed 90% of the votes while she was campaigning for Pres.  I think I’m dense today 🙂

                • LOL we can be dense together. But she is running for her Congressional seat, and has a fierce opponent with tons of money, I just think it’s pathetic that she’s been singled out by the RNC and not given any support by them whatsoever. That was my point. I thought she was a tea party favorite. If she’s not, she ought to be.

                • Orangeone

                  MN is a blue state so the RNC tosses all conservative candidates aside for them to fend on their own.  Chip Cravek beat a long-standing Demorat in the 2010 election and he too has Zero RNC support.  Chip was one of the best solutions for MN.  Bachmann has plenty of money too and her TV ads pound on her opponent supporting ObamaCare. For a blue state, ObamaCare is not supported here either and our biggest employers (3M, etc.) cancelled retiree insurance benefits immediately because they are no longer tax deductible.  That was a loud shot across the bow.  I’m confident Bachmann will retain her seat, her district is very conservative.

                • I hope so. Thanks for clearing it up for me though Orangefriend! 🙂

    • Orangeone

      And video. They were watching the slaughter in real time. Wonder if Barry enjoyed watching what happened to Stevens.

  • When were the briefings and who set the policies for security in Libya and Why? If the White House wanted the facts they could discover everything in one joint meeting. But instead just like Fast and Furious there will be more misinform,blame, delay, misdirect, redact, and stonewall all in the name of an ongoing investigation. And then in the end, executive privilege without explanation.

  • conservative58

    Do you guys think that maybe Obama has not thrown Hillary under the bus just yet in order to not tick off the liberal base of ‘Hillary fans’ before the election?

    • Betsey_Ross

      No. He doesn’t care about the Lefty base at this point. He only cares about himself. He’s only trying to get through the election. If he throws her under the bus, all he!! will break loose. Bill and Hill know many things about the O. If she goes under the bus so will the Once and it will be ugly. Right now they can call Republicans liars and they seem to be happy with that. It’s the rank and file State Dept. workers and intel folks that are unhappy. Remember that all of the above blamed this on bad intel. The intel community is not going to be happy with that. As Bolton said revenge is on the way.

      • conservative58

        BetseyR, I think you brought up a good point regarding the fact that Bill and Hill know things about the O.

        And I think 911Infidel (in a separate post) nailed it about the revenge from the intel community when he said they would vote them out of office and testify against them later.

      • Orangeone

        See my post above. Billy Boy Clinton is already lawyering up for Hillary!

  • Landscaper

  • JohnBarry2012

    Joe the jocker on national security, president and VP did not not know about Benghazi. Jay Carney went as far as to say that the vice president was speaking about himself and the president, and the White House, not the Administration. So, the president and vice president were not fully in charge of the State Dept and the whole Administration?

    Not only they are leading from behind, but also the leadership in obscurity. Joe the jocker, enormous amount of passion and joy, constant laughing and sneering on serious issue such as national security, a breath way from the presidency. Wow!

    • Orangeone

      So Carney said O’Bambi and Hitlary are still blaming the video as is Biden….Hummmm, cannot wait for Romney to bring that up at the next debate.

      Where is the RNC ad on this one? Use clips of the Issa committee testimony from all of them under oath saying it was terrorism. Rub it raw RNC, man up!

  • 3EYE

    Hillary,State Dept,Intel community are going to be blamed. Obama will not take blame or responsibility for it. There is the lesson from Obama. Clinton just learned, what Obama is all about, Himself not them. A lot of people will be put under the bus. Bill and Hillary Clinton just learned, they got screwed, by none other than Obama. This will be interesting to watch.

  • deeme

    Thank you Mr. Bolton, If they don’t know then they sure have no business, being in charge..Clueless is a cute movie for teens..not someone in charge of the security of the U.S. of America…

  • GuessWhoFan

    Here’s the deal:
    * If they knew and did nothing – corrupt.
    * If they didn’t know – incompetent.

    Either way, they’ve got to go.

  • FreeManWalking

    If a GOP administration had BLOOD on its hands like 0b0’s for the keeping an embassy open in a WAS ZONE without proper protection, it would still be the lead story on the MSM and on the front page of the leading News Print.

    Instead the headlines are Romney, GOP escalate charges on Libya attack. or Romney accuses Biden of doubling down on denial on Libya. … and these are not the lead story.

    I know 0b0’s MSM PACs will defend him to the end, but I thought they would still have a tinge of Patriotism, or concern for Americans being murdered on American Soil, or at least some respect for the families of the fallen seeking justice.

    Now the only hope that the MSM PACs will bring this story to the front is if Bill and Hillery try to distance her from the 0b0 admin for a 2016 run.

    It looks like the admin is trying to say the Buck stops with Hillery…. Is that Racist?

  • slightly off topic. But John Bolton has the coolest moustache ever!

  • Nukeman60

    It sure is getting crowded under that ole bus. When Obama has put everyone there, the drive may just get a little bumpy for him. Oh, yeah, he did say there would be ‘bumps in the road’, didn’t he.

    As to the Nobel Putz Prize. Everyone knows it’s just a political joke anyway. Whoever gets one (the EU, Obama, Al Gore and the IPCC, Mohamed ElBaradei and IAEA, Carter, Kofi Annan and the UN, Yasser Arafat, Mikhail Gorbachev – the list goes on) is guaranteed to be forever known as a world class putz. It has no meaning whatsoever.

  • iaintlyin

    There is very little difference between the way 0 (and his cadre of creeps) are playing this and the old Laurel and hardy routine of “Who’s on Third”.

    • FreeManWalking

      the Laurel and Hardy routine was humor.

      There is nothing humorous about the way 0b0 handles the presidency or his administration.

      • iaintlyin

        If you think I made the comparison based on both being viewed as comedic, Ummmm, lets just say, you’re mistaken.

    • KenInMontana

      It was “Who’s on First” and it was Abbott and Costello.

      • iaintlyin

        hahahhahhaahaa, you got me there kenny me boy. Hope you had the same reaction to my post as I did to yours. Too funny man, I get those four dudes mixed up all the time. And the third or first thing, i get dyslexia of some sort when I think hard.

        • KenInMontana

          I have pretty good memories of both the Abbot and Costello, as well as Laurel and Hardy. My parents used to take us to a local pizza parlor, they ran those old comedy films on Thursdays. It’s indeed tragic that we have an administration that can be compared to those old routines.

  • badbadlibs

    This snake…er… administration (the heads of this snake are bo and biden) will never take responsibility for any failures. Never. Both those snakes would throw their own wives and children under the bus to protect their hairy backsides and keep the WH. And with bo’s over exaggerated view of himself he doesn’t worry about some little peons like the Clintons…after all, he beat their machine.
    These people are evil to the core.

  • Mr. John Bolton, future Sec’y of State?

        Let him clean out Foggy Bottom, with an iron broom.
        One job I can see him in is Director of National Intelligence. He’d not have to go through a congressional hearing and could start immediately with getting rid of the muslim-brotherhood-infection in State, Defence, and probably Intelligence.

Even if you could make a case that Obama and Biden didn’t know what was going on in Libya BEFORE the attack (which would be a stretch in and of itself), but the certainly knew what was going on right AFTER the attack. Are you telling me that we had four Americans killed in Benghazi, one of them being the American ambassador, and the White House, the State Department, the CIA, the NSA, and the National Security Council didn’t put their full efforts and resources into finding out what happened and who was responsible for the attack? The entire Administration probably knew the next day exactly what happened, yet FIVE DAYS after the attack Susan Rice went on FIVE Sunday talk shows and spread the myth about the video being the cause of the attack. This is a lie and a coverup, made worse by the fact that we have dead Americans involved here. Nobody died in Watergate. We have four dead people here and no good answers why they were left defenseless in a very dangerous part of the Muslim world on the anniversary of 9/11. Someone has to pay for this, and I’m getting this feeling Hillary Clinton is about to get tossed under the bus for this. We’ll probably know in about a week, but certainly before the last debate which is on, ironically, foreign policy.

    Obama is a proponent of infanticide, you really think he gives a damn what happened to Ambassador Stevens?

    Tossed under the bus. Hilarious. How about hit by the bus. The bus (AKA the truth) route, if it is reported and examined properly, in a chronological time line of ALL comments, media releases DoJ statements, Carney statements etc etc, that bus (the Truth), won’t have enough room on it for all the soulless people it will run over. That bus (the truth) if driven properly by the Right should have an ending destination of the White House the day after the elections. It would be making its final stop to pick up the guy MOST responsible for the successful act of war against our Country on 9/11/12, 0. And by the way, I mentioned this before, we had better start labeling the Benghazi incident properly, 9/11-2, otherwise these progressives will have everyone forgetting the actual 9-11, which doesn’t even get a full 40 min acknowledgement/study in many h.s. classes today.

    Bolton is so right, it is truly inexcusable for someone running this country to claim ignorance.

    Throughout my professional career my motto has been, “I don’t know is not an option.” I always made it my business to find out.

    In the case of this administration I would say, “Ignorance is NOT an option.” You were hired to do a job, for crying out loud! It’s not symbolic.

    • is it FORE TASTE of obamacare – when a bureaucrat far way makes life/death decisions for you.

    • Erc Seitz

      When Obama can’t blame someone else he claims ignorance.

      What a leader. sarcasm.

    Do our boys and girls in the military know about the huge coverup re Benghazi and are “They” maybe a tad concerned that we have a complete incompetent in the White House “that doesn’t bother to look at “terrorist briefings”.

  • WordsFailMe

    There never was a “Protest” or a “Demonstration” in Behghazi.

    All of the videos we saw on 9-11 and 0-12 were from other cities, not Benghazi.

    And the demonstrations in all the other cities was to bring pressure on the US to release the blind sheik.

    Not only was President Pinocchio lying about the cause of the “demonstration,” they were lying about the very existence of a protest or demonstration in Benghaizi.

    This president and the people around him are so stupid that it defies imagination.

  • For our embassies there should be military help/guard WITHOUT asking –
    ……………………………………………………………..but one has to be a COMMANDER.

    Excuses are no substitute for performance. Excuses are no substitute for performance. Will some one please transmitt to 0bama. Comrade 0bama are you listening…..Comrade 0bama….over and out….Comrade?

    Obama went into Libya without Congressional approval. It’s his MO.

    In my opinion, that gives him even more personal responsibility for keeping Americans safe in the aftermath of his “kinetic military action”.

    Obama’s incompetence has lost enough American lives. He needs to be replaced.

  • dk_in_tn

    Obama is INEPT.

    It is very important for Presidents to go to Daily Security Briefings.

    • Suzyqpie

      Calling 0bama inept is very charitable. Leading from behind is the single most absurd concept ever. All of American should remember that our CIC went to the UN not our Congress as a kick off to this disgraceful Benghazi disaster.

  • dk_in_tn

    I look for the intel community to turn on Obama.

  • Erc Seitz

    Everything and everywhere Obama/Biden go they leave a trail of wreckage in their wake. The economy, their foreign policy, their war on affordable energy, their war on affordable healthcare.

    To make matters worse, they have have a Federal Reserve Chairman who is willing to print money (devalue everyone else’s dollars) to make up for a rotten economy devoid of tax revenue.

    We need a change in leadership and we need it now!

    John Bolton is a brilliant man and he is so right. Benghazi is an embarassment to this administration, make sure you vote for Romney/Paul and get rid of the miserable Obama regime with is clown Biden and their cronies.
