    Re: White House told of militant claim two hours after Libya attack: emails

    As more emails are leaked it appears the president not only knew this was terrorism but was aware of it in real time and made no effort to send help. This attack went on for over seven hours and obama sat there twiddling his thumbs. What ever happened to "leave no man behind"? I don't know how he sleeps at night, what a cowardly little prick this guy is.

    I showed you a video of him calling it an act of terror the day after the attack, and you still believe he didn't do it?

    He said "acts of terror" acts being plural. Also the day after the attack information was still coming in, I personally think he should have put out no specific information that wasn't confirmed and told people that information is still coming in regarding other details that weren't clear yet I agree with you there.

    The timeline is much shorter than that. It took a few hours for help to arrive from Tripoli, which I think its pretty damn fast anyway.
    The emails in question show that at 4; 05 the embassy was attacked by 20 armed men explosions were heard and shots were fired. It was not until around 9:40 p.m. until the fatal attacks started.

    Here is a link to a page where you can read see the email.

    Dude, I'm not going to entertain you while you try to derail this thread. Besides, there have already been a slew of threads on this topic. Go post there.

    It can be an act of terror AND be motivated by the video.

    It doesn't matter what it can or can't be. President Obama should have held a press conference and gotten in front of the American people and at least attempted to set the record straight, once he realized that there was so much confusion over the issue. That would have made sense. That is what other presidents have done in the past after terrorist attacks. Due to his own behavior and that of his administration, people who already lacked trust in him, just lost more trust. It doesn't matter what the man meant to say ...what matters is what the people heard.

    I'm trying to address a false claim you made. I assume by saying "Uh huh ya right" when someone says Obama called it an act of terror the day after, you're saying he didn't actually do that? Or am I wrong?

    Just admit the mistake and move on.

    You are wrong.

    My response was intended to dismiss your "act of terror" remark for the deflection it was. But hey...go ahead and talk about it even though it has nothing to do with anything I've said in this thread.
