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

    Looks like Panetta is falling on his sword for Obama.....



    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified this morning on Capitol Hill that President Barack Obama was absent the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.....snip~



    Panetta argued Obama relied on the Defense Department to work with the State Department on the issue.

    Senator Kelly Ayotte asked Panetta if President Obama followed up with him about the status of the attack throughout the night, the answer was no.

    Meanwhile, General Dempsey said the State Department never sent a request for military backup before, during or after attack occured.


    "Why didn't you put forces in place to be ready to respond?," Senator John McCain asked the general.

    Dempsey started, "Because we never received a request to do so, number one. And number two, we --"

    McCain iterrupted, "You never heard of Ambassador Stevens's repeated warnings?"

    "I had, through General Ham," responded Dempsey, referring to the commander of AFRICOM. "But we never received a request for support from the State Department, which would have allowed us to put forces--"

    "So it's the State Department's fault?"

    "I'm not blaming the State Department," Dempsey responded.

    Two weeks ago when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified about Benghazi, she said she was in contact with the White House about the attack throughout the night.....snip~

    Looks like we have Team Obama caught in the lies.....seems more and more just comes out on Benghazi. Where Obama dropped the Ball. Wonder if Panetta is falling on his sword to save Clinton so she can run for the Presidency?

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

    Oh it just keeps on getting worse.....doesn't it.



    Two weeks ago, Senator Rand Paul asked then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if Benghazi served as a gateway for the United States to run weapons to Syrian rebels through Turkey. Today during testimony on Capitol Hill, outgoing CIA director Leon Panetta admitted there was a plan, supported by Clinton and former CIA Director David Petreaus, put in place to arm Syrian rebels but was stopped by President Obama.

    Testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Mr. Panetta and Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were asked by Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, if they had supported the recommendation that weapons be provided to the Syrian resistance.

    “We did,” Mr. Panetta said.

    “You did support that” Mr. McCain asked again.

    “We did,” General Dempsey added.

    The White House, however, was worried about the risks of getting more deeply involved in the crisis in Syria. And with President Obama in the midst of a re-election bid, the White House rebuffed the plan, rejecting the advice of most of the key members of Mr. Obama’s national security team.....snip~

    Tipsheet

    Oh yeah.....Btw I had that Up when Stevens met with the Turk an hour before the attack. Now Clinton has been busted out!

    2 weeks ago she said she knew nothing about any arms. She is Toast if she runs for the Presidency.

    The American people have no one to blame but themselves for this disgrace - you had ample opportunity before the election to demand of the media, the President, and the administration a true accounting of the facts in the situation. You preferred to let the President slide, place silly word games, and be defended in the debates by a media personality who quite frankly didn't know what the hell she was talking about.

    When you choose to elect a President without scrutiny and based on the fact he has a nice smile and can carry a tune, you deserve the empty-suited leadership you get.

    I agree. It's a shame what this country has become.

    I hate all the ignorant voters out there. The ignorant voter is destroying this country. I don't care if people call me arrogant, preachy, condescending, etc. You ignorant voters are the ones destroying this country. Insult me all you want, at least I give a **** about the country that our forefathers fought so hard to get.

    It was our choice and the voters decided who they believed represented them.

    The good news is that the MS Media can't ignore the matter anymore. The BBC and Al-jazerra all picking it up. As well as other new sources. Think all will fall on their sword for Obama now?

    If the Benghazi raid had been totally repulsed and the terrorists killed or captured we would be reading about how Obama and Hlllary planned every defensive move. Do not doubt me.

    Agreed. It is very sad for me.

    Agreed. The low-information voters now outnumber the responsible voters, and the inmates are running the asylum.
