Obama dodges tough questions on Libya, refuses to answer if security requests were denied during attack

When asked direct and tough questions on the Benghazi attack and whether they were denied more security during the attack, Obama acts as though he wasn’t there and has no clue what happened. I mean, he is the president right? Well, not for long.


KYLE CLARK: Were the Americans under attack at the consulate in Benghazi Libya denied requests for help during that attack? And is it fair to tell Americans that what happened is under investigation and we’ll all find out after the election?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, the election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened. These are folks who served under me who I had sent to some very dangerous places. Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do. But we want to make sure we get it right, particularly because I have made a commitment to the families impacted as well as to the American people, we’re going to bring those folks to justice. So, we’re going to gather all the facts, find out exactly what happened, and make sure that it doesn’t happen again but we’re also going to make sure that we bring to justice those who carried out these attacks.

KYLE CLARK: Were they denied requests for help during the attack?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we are finding out exactly what happened. I can tell you, as I’ve said over the last couple of months since this happened, the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, we’re going to investigate exactly what happened so that it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice. And I guarantee you that everyone in the state department, our military, the CIA, you name it, had number one priority making sure that people were safe. These were our folks and we’re going to find out exactly what happened, but what we’re also going to do it make sure that we are identifying those who carried out these terrible attacks.

  • the only investigation going is how they can cover their damn asses!

    • Rightstuff1

      He was spinning like an out of control top!!! This thing stinks to high heaven. There is something rotten in the state of Denmark……

      Petraeus has put out a statement saying no one in the CIA denied help to the Seals in Benghazi. So, let’s see. If the CIA didn’t deny the help and Panetta doesn’t have the authority to turn down such a request then that only leave one other person.

      So Barry – did you deny the people in Benghazi the support that was requested 3 times over the course of 6-7 hours??!!!! Answer the question you disgraceful piece of crap !!!

      • Orangeone

        And Hitlary says she asked and Barky Boy told her no.

      • colliemum

        Petraeus is trying to run for the hills.

        Too late.

        He should’ve stood up to Bathhouse Barry in the first place, refusing to follow an unlawful order. Isn’t that what every American soldier has been taught?

        He should’ve come out with the truth far far earlier, not weeks after the event, when he couldn’t prevaricate any longer.

        He is a disgrace to his uniform, and to his office.

    • PovrlaChasse

      This is Obama claiming he is going to investigate himself. If HE is the perp, as I believe he is, how can you trust anything he “uncovers”? Ridiculous

    • BlueGood

      OMFG… I’ve been saying this for years…O’BLAMO IS Will Smith as OSCAR in SHARK TALE!

      i am NOT kidding….A Phucking CARTOON come to real life….LIES, BLAME, Bullschit!

      PLEASE…watch the CARTOON…you will see the “O”…..O’Bama is a TONGUE SCRUBBER!….LMAO!

      don’t take my word for it….please…

      Probably, the most accurate portrayal of REAL LIFE by Holywood…and the cool thing is….THEY HAD NO CLUE they were being so prophetic…

      RNC could WOW the gullible on the left if they bought the rights to use clips from Shark Tale to show O’Blamo….as he is….”OSCAR the LYING IDIOT”!

      • Orangeone

        BlueGood you’ve got it! Barky Boy is spending so much time in Hollywood, and raced off there day after the coffins arrived home (still wonder how we got the bodies out) so he could get some screen writers to write the storyline. You are simply BRILLIANT!

        • BlueGood

          Not kidding…you know the flick?…it’s Barakky to a T…

      You might ask Lara Logan about her experience and how she has been treated afterward.

      Speaking of $100 bills, whatever happened to the $100s that were recently stolen in transit? Has the story been deflected because of Benghazi?

    • jrt1031

      the lib media is so far in it to win it that they would cut their own arm off to spite their body(america is the body)… they are just as much to blame for the lies as Obama who knows he is protected by them and can get away with the lies.

  • He dodges tough questions, what a shock. That’s all this lying toerag does. What a poor excuse for a human being. VOTE HIM OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DCGere

    Nov. 6 can’t come soon enough. I’ve had enough of this turd.

    • Rightstuff1

      Time to flush the turd on Nov 6th !!!

      • Orangeone

        He’d clog the best septic system designed.

  • Wow, what a bold-faced lie. He just didn’t want to answer the question, let alone want to say if HE was the one who turned down the request for help. It’s a crime in and of itself that no hearings are going to be held on this until after the election. And if Obama loses the election, will Congress simply forget about the whole matter? Americans DIED here and the least we can do is see if that can be blamed on sheer incompetence or willful negligence. We need to know. It could save lives in the future.

  • bhaskin

    Same statements were made in the debate..Truly sad this POS is still in the race..Our military personnel must be feeling pretty damn uncomfortable right thinking that this fool has their back.

    • Patriot077

      I don’t think most military personnel feel that he has their back. Not anymore though some probably did believe that in the beginning …

  • Choombaya leadership America?

  • SaraPFan

    Last sentence of Obama’s statement:

    Based on the other RS post, we knew which Libyans carried out the attacks but we turned them over to Libya!! Cowardice.

  • Philo Beddoe

    He’s dodging alright.

    He was involved in running guns to the so called freedom fighters who probably sold them to al Qaeda. Now our Ambassador is murdered, who probably was involved in the scheme and then unknowing and innocent heroic military that went to help, because that’s what they are trained to do. Then he goes to the UN and claims it was because of a movie and blathers about how the world needs restricted speech. And then Joe Biden has the gall to ask father of one of the slain soldiers if he knew his son had the balls the size of cue balls. oBANO and his ilk are truely pathetically disgusting.

    He claims Executive Order for Fast and Furious where 200 Mexican nationals are killed and a US Border Agent is killed. All in the desire to change the 2nd Amendment

    Does anyone in power realize what this clown is doing or is it us nobody underlings that really give a damn?

    The real pathetic thing about this entire administration is that the republicans are letting this dolt ruin America all in the name of politics.

    And we all pay the price.

    May i translate Obama speak : yes were are going to wait until after the election and hopefully sweep it under the rug.

    Do your part Nov 6th…..VOTE him back to Chicago

    • texasgirl46

      Chicago is way to close…….Vote him back to Kenya….

      Obama is like finger nails on a chalk board……annoying as hell…

    • M_J_S

      We’re sorry Chicago but we’ve got no Elba for this boob.

    • Send him to Leavenworth, and all the rest of his disgusting adminstration.

      • Orangeone

        Little too close to me. I think K-Bob suggested a Turkish prison.

  • What a sorry, soul-less piece of crap he is.

    • bongobear

      You’re right. You look in his eyes and they are as dead looking as a shark’s eyes.

      • Orangeone

        I would rather have a shark swimming in my tub than Barky Boy residing in my country.

  • wallwatchman

    He’s LYING!!! We’re hearing new evidence everyday! Just today we hear the former seals in the CIA annex were begging to go help them and were told to stand down! They did it anyway and died being heroes while Obama is covering his butt!!

    We’re not stupid! You reporters, FOLLOW UP!! Ever heard of it?! Somebody call him on this stuff!!! Ugh!

    • Yep! We have to keep saying this and crying out for justice and to not let these four brave heroe’s blood be for nothing-the American people NEED and MUST keep demanding the truth and not back down!

      • conservocop

        We cannot back down another time; this is the last straw. Too much has been ‘ swept under the rug ‘ already. He has to be held accountable and we cannot back down until he has. No more backing down!! We should also boycott the seal’s movie and wait for the movie that will give an honest accounting of what really happened ….. if there is anyone with the moral courage to step forward to accomplish this.

      • wallwatchman

        You’re so right Cheryl. I know I’m only one person, but I’ve been bugging the heck out of my rep and senator offices about this! Calling and emailing. Even meeting with their staff to ask questions and tell them how ticked off I am, and what are they doing about it.

        Don’t know if it’s helping or not, but they’ll keep hearing from me until answers are given to these families and the rest of America! People should lose their jobs over this, including Obama, at the very least. Jail time would be better!

    • Orangeone

      Thanks wallwatchman. Now I have the song LIAR playing in my head over and over.

      • wallwatchman

        Lol! Sorry orangeone. I keep hearing the song Laura Ingraham plays before audio clips of lies from Obama and other liars. “why’d you lie to me, can’t be trusted, good for nothing kinda brotha.” lol!

        • Orangeone

          Love it!

  • Rshill7

    The CIA said it did not tell anyone to “stand down”. Guess what? There’s only one sword left to fall on. It is Barack Obama’s. Who’s gonna fall on that one?

    Or…whose back will sheath it, once it takes it’s thrusting tour?

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Well said!

    • colliemum

      Well, how come that the two heroic SEALs did what they were surely taught: disobey an unlawful order, for which they paid the ultimate price – but this former general did not?
      Why did Petraeus not stand up to Bathhouse Barry, and told him to stuff it?
      Why did Petraeus toe the line about the video, and then vanished into his bunker for weeks?
      Why is Petraeus saying it wasn’t him only now, after other brave people are coming out, telling what happened?
      He is a disgrace to the uniform he once wore.

  • So he never really answered this-I’m not surprised. You are a poor poor president and it’s time you get yourself and family ready to head to that 40 million dollar beach front home in Hawaii ’cause we are voting in a new President this November!

  • deeme

    He is the master of never answering a question …This guy gets kudos for asking the tough questions..

    • Orangeone

  • sDee

    What drugs are they pumping in this guy? He is alert and pensive but clearly stoned.

    • I’ve often wondered about that. This guy is on something, but we’ll probably never know.

      • Orangeone

        If only someone would pull an arm hair when they shake his hand.

    • WordsFailMe

      What kind of a politician, even one as so stump dumb, dense and choom-headed as Mr. Affirmative Action of 1998 is, would say this, 11 days before an election?

      PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, the election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened.

      The President CSR is banging crack again. Larry’s probably outside in the limo keeping his pipe warm. What has happened to his handlers? He’s off the leash a hell of a lot lately.

  • bjohnson55

    I think it is all together possible Obama was not there to make a decision. Why he wasn’t there needs to be investigated and he needs to pay the price for his inaction. Impeachment is too nice at this point, he either lied about not knowing what was happening on the ground since we have learned there was real-time intel being piped straight into the Whitehouse or he flat out was not available to make an executive decision for at least seven hours. Which is worse? Either way Obama should be locked in a room with no body guards for seven hours with the family of the four men who lost their lives because of his stupidity.

    • WordsFailMe

      You know you’re probably right, bj. This decision sounds more like Biden! I see where CIA Honcho Pratreus sent his version of Jay”the Bootlicker ” Carney”to publicly deny any CIA involvement with the “DECISION TO LET THE AMERICANS DIE” scenario. (Weekly Standard)

      Are the Obama cannibals turning on each other? Stay tuned, hide your ketchup…

    • Patriot077

      I’m pretty sure I heard he was in the oval office when the email came in at around 5pm.
      Can anyone else verify that? I don’t recall whether I heard it or read it.

      • MaxineCA

        They confirmed it most likely to make everyone believe he was “on top of the situation”. Why were they in the Oval Office rather than the situation room is beyond me. Guess they had to figure out their story.

        • Orangeone

          Why the Oval Ofice and not the Situation Room? The Situation Room is where the communications were sent.

      • WordsFailMe

        He was on the 5th green when SEAL team 6 landed in Osama front yard.

      • bjohnson55

        Like my dad always told me believe nothing you hear and only half of what you read. There are protocols in place which are verifiable with names and time stamps. There will be an invesitgation and there will be an accounting.

      • Amjean

        I read the Obama, Biden and someone else had a 5 pm meeting about this.
        Does anyone know whom that “someone” was? I don’t think it was Hillary.

    • Orangeone

      Well a couple of them anyway. Stevens’ father is still carrying Barky Boy’s water.

  • puma_for_life

    I can’t watch this. The man is a pathological liar.

  • WordsFailMe

    Used to watch Hitler on those WWII films and wonder what is was like to have someone with that kind of power, stand in front of hundreds of thousands of people an lie.

    Somedoay our children will watch films of Obama with the same amazement. May they remeber us more fondly than current Germans recall their past.

    • Orangeone

      Well said. If you go to Germany you will see that they are still living with what happened.

    Everything Obama said in this interview is BS. He is such a miserable coward. What a waste of oxygen. I despise the man.

    This is the kind of one-minute video I’d like to see the RNC sponsor in the swing states:

    Video: Obama Watched Them Die


    • I’m sending a letter to Boehner first thing Monday morning to demand Treason charges. I might have to include the links to some of these at the end of it. He and the rest of congress need to know we’ve HAD IT!

      • celestiallady

        Wish there was a way for us all to sign that letter.

        • Me too. I’m open to suggestions on how to do that.

          • celestiallady

            I don’t know but maybe one of our great posters would know how.

          • WordsFailMe

            MAYBE RS would sponsor a kind of Open Thread but it would be dedicated to “Right Scoop– Messages to John Boehner .Then you could send the letter and give him a link to a Boehner dedicated thread. Dumb idea huh?

            • Oh crap Words, that is BRILLIANT!!! How about it Scoop? Could we do something like that just once?

              • Linky1

                Pass the thread on to Levin and Rush, Scoop has been mentioned there many times.

            • Galatiansch2vs20

              Not dumb! How about printing out all the comments and sending them to John Boehner and key conservative congressmen, such as Allen West?

              • WordsFailMe

                That’s even BETTER!

          • freenca

            Perhaps appeal to Rand Paul or Mike Huckabee, They send me info to petition for all the time, there would be so many signatories of a petition of that nature. I only suspect that the congressional representatives mostly ignore the petitions that we send them. If there were only another, more effective way we could force them to listen to us.!!! The only thing they seem , at this point, to GET is the election numbers. RATZ!

            • I like Words (never) Fail (him)’s idea above freenca! Have you seen it yet?

              • WordsFailMe

                If RS cannot in good conscience, sponsor a thread , responsible adults could simply commandeer one. We could become the first, cyber Committee of Vigilance.

                • Galatiansch2vs20

                  I don’t see why RS couldn’t if everyone agreed to keep their comments clean of foul language and respectful in sharing strong sentiments of wanting Boehner to not shirk his duty!

                • WordsFailMe

                • colliemum

                  One thing I learned in my long life: while ranting is good for the soul and shouldn’t be suppressed amongst friends, there is nothing as devastating as icy-cold politeness when addressing those who hold public office.

              • freenca

                Word’s may just have something there. If, RS is also brave. We are a large following and would be heard as a force of our tens of thousands, together.

              • Orangeone

                Love the idea. Boehner is campaigning. Any Tea Party events going on near one of his rallies?

        • If Scoop can’t do it, maybe I can try to do it on my own blog, and have everyone who wants to leave a comment. I’d rather do it here though if he lets us because we’re already here.

          • colliemum

            That is a brave proposal – but it would be better coming from scoop, because scoop gets the attention of Levin and Limbaugh, so the potential for it to snowball are far greater if scoop did this.

  • Mensaman62

The buck stops with you Punahoe-boy not with Hillary.

    • WordsFailMe

      Oh that’s right, it took Panetta almost six months to get the Obamerrhoid out of earshot of Valerie so he could finagle the hit on Osama.

      If only the Benghazi attack had lasted six months, Obama could be those men would be alive today and Barry could pimp-walk the end zone and spike his ball!

      • 911Infidel

        Its just another bump in the road to Barry. His feckless, non-response to requests for military assets from the diplomats, the SEALs, cost 4 people their lives. Barry and his entire chain of command should be brought up on charges for willfull negligence, resulting in 4 needless deaths. That includes Petraeous, Clapper and the other dolt Donilon. ALL of them should do time behind bars.

  • sjmom

    Try though they may to cover up Benghazi the truth will be known and the media will also suffer consequences for their refusal to investigate.

    If congress doesn’t do something about this reprehensible so-called president soon then they are as much a disgrace as he is. It’s no wonder the entire world is laughing at us. I know the rest of the world (supposedly) wants him reelected. To them that’s like saying you want the network to pick up your favorite comedy show for another season.

    I agree with Mark Levin when he says we should be up in arms over this debacle. Just what is it going to take for Americans to rise up and demand something be done. I know… I know… the election is just 11 days away. Use your vote to voice your opposition. That’s a great idea in theory, but if he doesn’t get reelected (which he won’t) he and his family will just wander to Hawaii and while away their days in retirement on a gorgeous beach in their new multi-million dollar mansion. Meanwhile the rest of us are left holding the bag for his failed policies, including his foreign policies, like the one that got our people killed.

    I have written my congress-critters demanding an immediate investigation, not after the election. Probably won’t do any good because they’re not in session, but if enough folks write now they might… read: maybe with your fingers crossed… take something on during the lame duck session. Ten million emails waiting for them demanding an immediate investigation (while he still reigns) would make a difference.

    • Write it my bikerhoop friend!! I have one waiting to go. The EMPLOYEES of the people demand this administration be held accountable, NOW.

    • FreeManWalking

      “If congress doesn’t do something about this reprehensible so-called president soon then they are as much a disgrace as he is.”

      Mitch McConnell = WEAK johnee Bawn-yer = WEAKER

      The GOPe has very weak leadership if you can call what they have leadership…

      If the GOP had leadership there would have been someone in front of the 0b0 MSM PACs DAILY asking Demanding 0b0 answer,
      “Who told you it was a Video?
      What time was the ‘minute’ you first found out the attack was happening?
      Did you wait until the Americans were dead, and the Libyans dispersed before giving your 3 very clear directives?
      Who did you give those directives too?
      And do you feel that you deserve any blame for allowing the 4 Americans to be murdered?”

      • BikerHoop

        I definitely agree with you. All we can do at this point is deluge our congress-critters with email and snail mail demands for an immediate investigation. Hell, I’ll go to DC and see them in person if it’ll help.

    Well, alrightee then…I feel a bit more relieved about that tragedy in Libya now that dear leader has reassured us that he’s on the case and will make sure to nab the terrorists (my word, obviously not obama’s) and make them pay for the murders of those four Americans in Libya. And I’ll bet obama is sleeping as soundly as a baby…which is to say as soundly as he did the night the murders were being carried out!!!!!

    I was just watching Hannity, aside from a great interview with Charlie Woods, he had on Issa and Chaffetz, who are really ticked off. Great….. now what are you going to do about it? Issa said if it weren’t for the whistle blowers they wouldn’t have much info.

    I hopped over to OPSEC Team, and asked if they would speak out about Benghazi. They must be as outraged as all of us and can speak with authority and experience. I’m sure Fox would be glad to have them on again.

    • Orangeone

      OPSEC is trying to raise more funds for more ads. They are doing an outstanding job!

        I did my part today by making an another online contribution. Love those folks. They have such a strong voice, I sure hope they take to the airwaves on Benghazi.

          Thank you!

  • xjesterx

    I hate to be this way, but my God…this is what happens when we have a massive section of our population who is uneducated about who they are voting for. Lives are not only ruined but LOST, and the real blame is that we have not held ourselves accountable for letting things get so out of hand.

    It seems to me that unless there is a RED DAWN movie style invasion, or some super depression era like economic collapse, people just won’t feel enough pain to stop voting for far lefty politicians and Republicans in Name Only.

    We have it SO EASY in our country, even with gas prices this high, compared to just about anywhere in the world. On the one hand it is a real testament to the country our Founding Fathers built…but on the other hand, I worry that it is becoming like Rome towards the end.

    Things seem easy and good for so long for most of the population, and only a Zombie Apocalypse could wake them from ordering pizza and watching the latest episode of Survivor. Even then, some people would refuse to believe it was happening!

    We have to be willing to “talk politics” to our neighbors, and then make sure our children are educated about what real freedom is. Otherwise after 8 years of Romney (maybe) we will have another lefty in there and more people will die. We can’t let that happen.

    I apologize for the long rant…. not being an alarmist…just being real. I served my country and it tears me up to see what’s being done to it.

    • sDee

      Not a rant – reality. These are dangerous times. The enemy is within. Romney is a stop gap. We must dramatically shrink the size and power of the Central Government especially the Executive Branch. They will never, ever do it on their own.

      The propaganda media is the lynch pin. The government schools the feeder.

        the work has just begun when we evict him from our house.

        in, the mean time, does anyone remember “iran contra.” in 1986 congress investigated a gun running scheme called “guns for hostages,” and returned 14 indictments. 11 people were convicted of criminal offense.

        what is different about this.

        we know that obama was running guns and jihadis into syria from libya. we know that he has lied about it. and, it is a fair surmise that obama simply let our people die in benghazi because he did not want his gun running discovered.

        he was, by the way, violating united nations joint security resolution 2043 (2012) passed 21 april 2012 prohibiting arms into syria, and aiding violence by any party, in that country.

        he should be impeached, and tried.

    Ulsterman Report has post from Insider:

    “”Got word an all-call went out at the WH A.M. today.

    That means they are doing what’s called “huddling”. Has to be related to the Benghazi news now hitting. Have good source in Chicago saying their office is acting very odd today as well. Can’t say if this will break out all the way now, but we are getting very close to an all out WH red alert scenario. Not there yet but very close.

    Significant activity from Ruemmler’s office over the last 24.

    In this situation there will likely be 1 of 2 responses from WH.

    -Highly controlled briefing response. Attempt explanation, then hope story gets buried over weekend and race to election day.

    -Announced resignation of someone inside administration. President apologizes for mistakes by some in his administration. That deal could be under negotiation at this very moment.

    Second scenario not as likely. Not yet. But the Ruemmler activity makes me believe there’s more damaging information out there to the administration on Benghazi than has already come out today. They are trying to assess what will and will not get out to determine response. To have a potential scandal of this magnitude so close to an election is unprecedented. Priority for them will be to insulate the president. Got to try and cut that off. Get someone inside go public and point the finger at Obama.

    Now I do what I do best.””

      Well, we know we can do our part to keep this story out in the open, but I’m sure looking forward to someone having the guts to come forward and fess up before Zero gets us in another war in the ME as his parting gift.

      Sure hope Romney’s advisors understand the real purpose of the Benghazi weapons smuggling operation.

      • sDee

        If the protocol is as we heard today, that a 4-star commences the response operation unless a stand-down order is issued, it seems that this must be closing on on them.

        We would not know what we do if not for whistle blowers who are clearly forgoing any sort of protection. Perhaps as you say someone does have the guts to stand. America will not survive this tyrant’s re-election – that is a reality no one in DC can hide from any longer.

        • Patriot077

          I hope it’s closing in on them. I want it to be like the Acme anvil coming down on Wile-E!

          Pray God that whistleblowers are kept safe.

          Your last line is stark, honest truth. Oh yes.

    • WordsFailMe

      Two facts about Benghazi remain unexplained. Maybe they are minor:

      1 Contention: The Turkish Official was part of the plot and made sure the Dennis was at the Benghazi Consulate on the night of 9/11, not a day meeting, and he signaled the murderers that Dennis was in the compound and in which building he was located.

      2. Question: Two airplanes picked up the annex CIA Operative survivor team. Were the planes used military aircraft out of Europe? Who called for them? Out of all the calls for help why was only the request that was honored a request to evacuate? Did they only have passenger planes available in the entire Eastern Hemisphere that night? Could they not have sent a gunship or two with extra seats?

      3 OPTIONAL: CIA denies that it told the teams to stand Down. But that is not the question. Patreus who seems to be rapidly acquiring the Obama art of cunning locution issued a statement regarding WHAT THE CIA DID –NOT– DO.

      — What we want to know is: WHAT ACTION, ORDER OR INSTRUCTION DID THE CIA GIVE TO ITS OWN TEAM OF CIA OPERATIVES? Is that so much to ask?
      Don’t tell me what you didn’t do, you yellow bastards! TELL ME WHAT YOU TOLD THEM! They are dead! YOU, Patreus are responsible for their deaths and YOU MUST SPEAK.


      1. Benghazi is not an embassy. Tripoli hoses the embassy. SO why would the ambassador be at the consulate in Benghazi on 9/11? Some say he was spearheading and finagling the round up of leftover arms from the rebels and others say there was a freighter loaded with US weaponry. and bound for Syria through the MusBros contact in Turkey and it was moored in the harbor at Benghazi.

      Stevens was in Benghazi for a late night meeting with a Turkish official. Within 1 hour of the Turks departure, the ambush began. Was the Turkish official the mean to get Stevens to Benghazi to ensure that Dennis would be in the consulate where US security was least Did the Turkish official signal the murder squad that Dennis was still in the main house at the US compound? Seem like the hit squad knew exactly where to go.

      2. The survivors at the annex decided to abandon the post and get to the airport where the strike team had landed. I heard the two planes were required to carry out the team members and the dead. Who called for these planes? Were they US military? Doesn’t seem like they could have been commercial flights. If they were US military, how did they “violate Libyan Air space without permission” when warplanes were unable to?

      • colliemum

        These are all very good questions indeed, wfm, but with all due respect, isn’t the first and main point right now to direct all our fire, if I may say so, at the people who were responsible and did nothing, from the President down?

        Like – neither Petraeus nor Panetta standing up to that POS and telling him to go away and let them save the lives of those people? WTF?

        Or was the POS actually present?
        Was it perhaps his handler, Valerie Jarrett, who told them to do nothing, speaking ‘for the President’? If so – why did they accept that?

        Let them all stand accused.
        There must be no more vote for that POS from today onwards.

        • WordsFailMe

          Great insights, colliemum. The great news is that Obama is not smart and as you already now he is one the “strings pull”— he is the mouth-piece, the front man and he will crack out of turn again, as he did with this cover-story, unless they find a “under-eyelid teleprompter.”

  • i just want to take a moment to thank this reporter… he tried to get answers out of obama. obama dodged of course but it was refreshing to see a reporter directly question him. notice that he had to repeat the question! ugh.

  • Obama’s quote : “the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives”. Tells me that this was present tense and in real time. So why do we need an investigation to tell Americans what Obama (1st person) knew and when?

  • NYGino

    Says a lot of words, doesn’t say anything and never comes close to answering the questions.

  • NCHokie02

    Everyone didn’t have those directives in mind Mr President. You had a CIF in Sigonella that is used for exactly these types of things. You had Specter Gunships in Italy or Turkey. All of these elements were able to respond within 2-hr’s from the approval to launch. The gunfight lasted 7 hrs!!! You DID NOT do what you could to protect our people!! How the left doesn’t care about this is unreal. Whomever denied action on the DOD’s part should be fired at the least. Panetta talks about not sending people into harms way w/o knowing whats going on….Mr Secretary your an idiot! You had CIA on the ground with communications painting a picture of what was going on. You had Predator drones overhead showing a live feed. HOW MUCH MORE INFORMATION DO YOU WANT BEFORE YOU ACT?!?!?! YOU DON’T GET BETTER INFORMATION THAN THAT!!! You should be fired!! This administration has these four Americans blood on their hands. I have never been more disgusted at the office of the President and his administration in my life. Michelle Obama wants to be talking about not being proud of her country for most of her life, well this is the first time that I am not proud of mine. Mr President you are a disgrace to the Office of the President of the United States and a weak and pathetic Commander in Chief who couldn’t lead if his life depended on it. Disgusting!

    “”the cold hard truth of the president’s decision not to try and rescue ambassador stevens from death at the hands of terrorists stealing weapons destined for syria, stored at the u.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi, and to be shipped to the syrian opposition to the dictator assad, was that it would have revealed a scheme on his part to violate international law.

    does anyone on this earth have sufficient memory to recall colonel oliver north, usmc. in 1986, during the regime administration, it came to the attention the u.s. congress that colonel north was diverting weapons to certain (unsavory, no doubt) elements in the nation of iran, to attempt the rescue of american hostages held there. “arms for hostages,” as it was called.

    this was in violation of an arms embargo to iran.

    congress convened a major investigation, resulting in the issuance of 14 indictments and trials, resulting in 11 convictions. defense secretary caspar weinberger was indicted.””

  • jrt1031

    Why doesnt the media ask him about his youtube video that he blamed for attaches. I think all those media tapes that they might have where he mentioned lightly terror attacks were either taped after the fact unfolded and made to seem as if he covered his terror alert. He is a smooth talker and we can see how well he can tell a lie.

  • jrt1031

    He contridicts himself by saying we are going to get all the facts before releasing information to the ” folks”- his favorite word… and yet he was the first to pitch his youtube video that was shot down and exposed for the lie that it was!

    How about the 400,000 military ballots that went up in flames in a aircract carrier. Obama can get what ever he wants and he will and has in place actions to win the election illegally. Look at countrys where their leaders are never taken out of office and yet the people allow this injustice to happen. Obama truly believes and so do his followers that he should remain in power indefinately. We are done as a people.

  • codenametimna

    Acting CIA Director David Petraeus said (through a spokesperson) the CIA didn’t tell anyone to stand down. But Fox News sources said the CIA actually did tell personnel to stand down and NOT to provide any help to those in harms way. So which is it? The sourced information was rock solid (as good as it gets) according to Fox News Jennifer Griffin. If the sources were correct and the CIA did tell personnel to “stand down”, then who told the CIA to give that directive? Who is Commander in Chief? Why none other than Barack Hussein Obama!

    Barack Obama was the one who ordered everyone to “stand down” and the CIA was given that order by Obama himself. And David Petraeus, as a dutiful former soldier, apparently obeyed Obama’s horrendous decision NOT to provide any help during the attack on the consulate in Libya. Yet the CIA is claiming they DIDN’T tell anyone to stand down. Someone is lying!

    Obama won’t answer the question because obviously he is the one who ordered everyone to stand down. Obama watched the attack in real-time and as Commander in Chief he ultimately gave the order for everyone to ‘stand down’ and repeatedly “denied” Ambassador Chris Stevens and others any help whatsoever during the attack on the consulate in Libya. That is the logical conclusion to this whole mess. The CIA was given the order from Obama himself and acting Director of the CIA – David Patraeus – followed that order. And now the CIA is apparently “lying” in an attempt to provide cover for the Obama administration.

    If the sources that told Fox News that it was indeed the CIA who told everyone to stand down, and if those sources are indeed accurate, then it is abundantly obvious the CIA is lying in an attempt to provide cover for the worst president in America’s history. And David Petraeus should be FIRED!

    Now if the sourced information is wrong then the CIA is apparently telling the truth and the first ‘link’ in the chain of command who has ultimate authority to tell everyone to stand down and who also repeatedly “denied” Ambassador Chris Stevens and those other brave Americans any help whatsoever during the attack – is none other than Barack Hussein Obama himself! Who else? And if Obama did give the order for everyone to stand down then he should be IMPEACHED!!!

    Either way, Congress should do everything in its power to get to the bottom of this atrocious scandal so that the American people finally know the truth about what happened. The American people deserve to know the truth. But so far they have been given what seems to be a “pack of lies” from the Obama administration, and consequently, Congress needs to do its job and hold the culprits accountable who are lying to the American people.

  • westernhunter

    Okay something is fishy here, help me out………….

    Where is Gen Ham, read blog someone said he was relieved command for not wanting to stand down.

    There was a news report 09/19/12 that Gen David Rodriguez was chosen to take charge of Military’s Africa Command Center from Gen Carter Ham. (notice the date)

    The recent statement Panetta made said he, General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, and General Carter Ham, head of the U.S. military’s Africa Command, felt they couldn’t “put forces at risk in that situation”.

    • sDee

      I no nothing about Ham but soldiers must follow orders.

      General Dempsey is a pathetic, far left, politically correct, islamist apologist. He is an embarrassment to the courageous men and women who fight and die for our country.

      Dempsey and Panetta are a disgrace to the nation and would be fragged if left alone on the battlefield for one night.
