    About 90 percent of this country has never heard of Benghazi and knows nothing about any of this.

    There's the problem, right there.

While taking down 50-60 of them. 2 guys that had no weapons but took what they could from Libyans and the weapons they gathered. 2 former Navy Seals that laid down a perimeter and drove off the first wave while fighting a retreat and all in 7hrs by themselves with no help coming. A Story that should have been told from the start and should be talked about. 2 Heroes that gave all and stayed. They didn't wait for any Orders. They did what had to be done!
    That is so true............ , what matters also, is don't you think some of their thoughts in those 7 hours must have finally gone to ....... the military honor code, No man left behind, and wondered why they received..... NO.....Help. and were left behind by the Govt....... They gave their lives for, If you cain't Trust Who, you are Fighting for to have your Back, then who can you trust ?

    Re: Panetta Testifies Obama Absent Night of Benghazi.....

    You are going to have to point out to me where someone has said the President Obama PURPOSELY avoided doing anything that his SecDef or any other agency asked him to do during the incident. I haven't seen any of that yet. You can keep saying that he was absent, or off playing patty cake with Michelle, but you haven't shown me where he did anything incompetent. He left the situation in the hands of the people who job it is.

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.

    Obama:



    This is a blatant lie. We know this isn't true. Panetta confirmed it.

    Sources: Key task force not convened during Benghazi consulate attack - CBS News



    You don't need to have military experience to send in help when an Ambassador is under attack and begging for help.

    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.

    If people were more focused on how to prevent this from happening again and less focused on pointing fingers, I might be inclined to care about their position more. I do believe mistakes were made, but not anything criminal. Mistakes happen, our government is humans. Let's try and focus on not letting anymore of our ambassadors/soldiers/citizens die at the hands of terrorists.

    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 ?

    Oh BS, if our allies knew it was dangerous after a HOLE WAS BLOWN INTO THE CONSULATES COMPOUND WALL then Obama and Clinton knew as well.

    I guess you forgot about the sworn testimony that clearly shows the State Dept and the CIA knew immediately it wasn't a "protest".

    Are you THAT dense ?

    It must be a pain that in order to be a Democrat you have to trade in a semblance of integrity.

    It didn't use to be this way. Progressives hijacked the democrat party.

    you people fail to realize that video was purposely publicized by our Obama lovin media to perpetuate the lie and further his narrative that it was a "protest".

    The Obama adminsitration Knowingly pushed the video to ramp up exzra protest and the loss of lives to back their lie.

    Your response is silly

    A) I never said Obama "avoided" doing anything. We KNOW beyond all doubt HE DID NOTHING

    B) Nobody claimed he was "playing pattycake with Michelle". This is you attempting to objectify/characterize inconvenient facts which you cannot refute. It only makes your position look petty and weak.

    Obama DID NOTHING. Obama LIED. You cannot refute that. Logically there are only 2 explanations. Incompetence or purposeful refusal to act. It's not my job to wake you from your Obama induced coma of cult worship. When you're able to think on your own, feel to provide a response that actually addresses the irrefutable facts that were brought up in the previous post. Otherwise, good luck with whatever you are trying to accomplish.

    Just how was that to take place since no one has questioned the Cleric in Egypt and addressed the issue of having people rise up and Protest with Riots and in another Country? While using social media to do so.

    Mistakes get made but not missing warnings the Size of a barn that anyone else could read. Must mean there was something going on to keep people around. When others had pulled their people out. Such as the Turks, Brits, French, and the Italians. Do you think they all might have known something we didn't? Did we know something they didn't?

    Most others would have known once the Consulate was attacked twice Previously within the year and that there was no real government to guaranteed US personnel and their Safety. So this cannot be used as an excuse. Protocols would be required to protect US Assets. None were put in place.

    But let try and hold all responsible who failed to understand to take even the most basic of steps.....Accountable!
