With all of the other things that Obama has actually done wrong, I can't believe people are focusing on this. He let the people who are delegated with the responsibilities handle the situation. I have no doubts that he was receiving reports on how the situation was going, but what would you expect a man with NO military experience to do? Let's try and focus on real issues because they are out there.
Hail to the King baby!
If Obama was "receiving reports" then why didn't he DO SOMETHING? Panetta said specifically he was NOT in contact with Obama during the attack. A US Ambassador was under attack and Obama was AWOL. One of Clinton's ambassadors was under attack and she didn't contact Panetta either or request any assistance for the guy. But "What does it matter" to her anyway right? Oh we get it though. She gets snarky and yells at a Republican during testimony, so she gets a pass on Benghazi.
Hell Obama never once checked in to see how the situation was unfolding. Didn't ask if the ambassador was still alive. Nothing. Panetta has confirmed this under testimony. There is no doubt. This contradicts statements Obama has made about the situation in the past. It also contradicts statements Axlerod made during the campaign.
This is a blatant lie. We know this isn't true. Panetta confirmed it.As soon as we found out the Benghazi consulate was under attack, I was on the phone with national security team

You don't need to have military experience to send in help when an Ambassador is under attack and begging for help.The CSG is the one group that's supposed to know what resources every agency has. They know of multiple options and have the ability to coordinate counterterrorism assets across all the agencies," a high-ranking government official told CBS News. "They were not allowed to do their job. They were not called upon.
The President is the only man who could have green lighted a cross border operation. If you have "no doubt" that he was "receiving reports" then explain to everyone why Obama did nothing. If he delegated responsibilities as you claim, ok Stevens and 3 other Americans are still DEAD. Part of being Commander in Chief and leader of this country is having competent people in place. The inability to appoint competent people is incompetence. So even if your paper thin premise was true, which relies upon some serious Obama worship, it still exposes Obama as an incompetent buffoon who isn't fit to lead our military.
Why is anyone surprised?
Obama's been pretty much absent since January, 2008......
But he has improved his back swing.......
A 10 day lie, a false narrative pushed prior to an election, Sec of State perjering her self in front of a Congressional comitee, the blatant disregard of the Ambassors security prior to the SEPTEMBER 11th ANIVERSERY ATTACK after multiple warnings.
After a hole was blown into the compound wall, after other Countries removed their Ambasadors.
Weve got drones that can take out individual 16 year old Americans but the Consulate was just out of luck.
The blatant ignoring of a mass dereliction of Duty of Obama and his top officials and advisors by a complicit media.
None of that is an issue ? Does a president have to be a Republican before he's held to even the modest standars and expectations ?
My Liberal Uncle still drones on about Nixon. For what ?

See you forget we released the funds to Morsi and Egypt. Plus we know he never saw the video from his own supporters. Any reason why the FBI didn't investigate him or question him? You didn't question why they wouldn't bring one in they knew for certain that had used social media to also call on those who follow that doctrine?
Plus we have what those in Pakistan and Bangladesh had to say concerning the release of the video. Pretty much all the others too. Yet no word from the Sunni Cleric that started it all. Again you don't find that odd or strange like?
Course have any been brought to justice over Benghazi as well? Any reason to withhold the Autopsy on Stevens Body?
Then we have Panetta Admitting he spoke to Obama at 530pm. Then not until after it was over. Despite watching 7hrs of a live feed.
Then we have the Independent investigation that says Clinton and the State Dept ignored or failed to perceive the Warnings that were presented prior on the Consulate as well as what took place with the Brits Ambassador. Pretty much shows that incompetency.
To finalize we now have General Dempsey stating that it was the State Dept that never made any requests to them. That falls squarely on Hillary and crew. Which is also with them knowing exactly what was going on with Libya and the Ouster of Gadhafi.
