So he may have been in flight when the call came in.....could have been landing. Or even got the call and said Warp speed to DC. As all we know for sure is that Panetta Validated he had spoke to him by phone.
Moreover.....all we need do is remember what Obama was talking about with the Election. Which Libya and Benghazi had not come up until the Debate with Romney. Which would be afterwards. So we do know that nothing about Libya and Benghazi was on his mind at the time he is giving the speech to those Florida students. As there is not One mention of either in any coverage at that time.
We are criticizing Obama for lying about the cause of the strike... stating it was a video.
We are beyond criticizing Obama and Clinton for covering up, lying to the families of the dead, and delaying this as if it's some bit of junk mail.
And we are criticizing the administration for threatening those who wanted to tell the truth.
The buck stops where in this administration?
I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
Yeah, this has been staring in their face all along and Hillary knows Ansar Al Sharia provides security for that Part of Libya.
Witnesses and the authorities have called Ahmed Abu Khattala one of the ringleaders of the Sept. 11 attack on the American diplomatic mission here. But just days after President Obama reasserted his vow to bring those responsible to justice, Mr. Abu Khattala spent two leisurely hours on Thursday evening at a crowded luxury hotel, sipping a strawberry frappe on a patio and scoffing at the threats coming from the American and Libyan governments.
few, like the militia group Ansar al-Shariah that is linked to Mr. Abu Khattala and that officials in Washington and Tripoli agree was behind the attack, have embraced an extremist ideology hostile to the West and nursed ambitions to extend it over Libya. But also troubling to the United States is the evident tolerance shown by other militias allied with the government, which have so far declined to take any action against suspects in the Benghazi attack.
Although Mr. Abu Khattala said he was not a member of Al Qaeda, he declared he would be proud to be associated with Al Qaeda’s puritanical zeal for Islamic law. And he said that the United States had its own foreign policy to blame for the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. “Why is the United States always trying to impose its ideology on everyone else?” he asked. “Why is it always trying to use force to implement its agendas?”
Although Mr. Abu Khattala’s exact role remains unclear, witnesses have said they saw him directing other fighters that night. Libyan officials have singled him out, and officials in Washington say they are examining his role.
Witnesses, Benghazi residents and Western news reports, including those in The New York Times, have described Mr. Abu Khattala as a leader of Ansar al-Shariah, whose trucks and fighters were seen attacking the mission. Mr. Abu Khattala praised the group’s members as “good people with good goals, which are trying to implement Islamic law,” and he insisted their network of popular support was vastly underestimated by other brigade leaders who said the group had fewer than 200 fighters.
“It is bigger than a brigade,” he said. “It is a movement.”
Mr. Abu Khattala said he was close to the group but was not an official part of it. Instead, he said, he was still the commander of an Islamist brigade, Abu Obaida ibn al-Jarrah. Some of its members joined Ansar al-Shariah, but Mr. Abu Khattala said that even though his brigade had disbanded he could still call it together. “If the individuals are there, the brigade is there,” he said.....snip~
Yeah Zimmer.....I have been sitting on this for quite some time. Had it from some other New Sources. Course I knew the Left would cry about the Source. Until I found the NY Times link. So much for no AQ presence? So much for not knowing where one of the Attackers was all along.....huh?
See Obama and his Team thought they could Muddy the waters so to speak. Hide behind terminology. Move goal-posts and deflect with anything they can. They have been hoping all along the news cycle would push this All under the rug.
That they could just get out of it with charges of Negligence and Incompetency. Managerial Failures.
I think it is funny that Team Obama and the Democrats aren't smiling anymore when the name Benghazi pops up.....Note: Obama did lose that **** eating grin 2 days ago. Do you think they can see the writing on the Wall, yet?

democrat congressman stephen lynch of south, blue collar boston, on fns this morning with chris son-of-60-minutes-mike wallace
Dem Rep. on Benghazi Talking Points: 'It Was Scrubbed ... It Was False Information. There's No Excuse For That.' | The Weekly StandardDemocratic congressman Stephen Lynch said this morning on TV that Susan Rice used "scrubbed" talking points on Benghazi to deliver "false information" to the American people:
"Absolutely, they were false, they were wrong," said Lynch, after being asked about Steve Hayes's report on "The Benghazi Talking Points."
"There were no protests outside the Benghazi compound there. This was a deliberate and strategic attack on the consulate there," said the Democratic congressman.
"It was false information. There's no excuse for that."
and yes, congressman lynch is indeed a member in good standing on evil darrel issa's offensive oversight cmte which is conducting wednesday's hearing
Committee On Oversight & Government Reform
it turns out evil issa has the emails---on saturday, 9-14, the day before un ambassador susan rice famously toured the 5 sunday talks to blame the video, the cia put together talking points with information intended for the american public
that advisory contained language ultimately scrubbed by state dept spokesperson victoria nuland, the chris carney, essentially, of foggy bottom
evil issa's emails show that ms nuland had "serious concerns about the draft," she was "worried that some members of congress would use the talking points to criticize the state dept for not paying attention to agency warnings"
her "superiors," she did not say which ones, "were unhappy"
the language which was removed (congressman lynch says "scrubbed") was "islamic extremists with ties to al qaeda," and "ansar al sharia" and "jihad"
the state dept also changed the word "attack" to "demonstration"
and the list of previous attacks and warnings contained in the original advisory was erased
The Benghazi Talking Points | The Weekly Standard
do you know how evil issa got the icky emails
read the link (bottom of page one)
even at that, the revisionists at foggy bottom weren't done
the final talking points approved by all the correspondents issa itemizes---seniors at state, nsc, odni (offfice director natl intel), cia and the white house---do NOT mention the video ms rice trumpeted all over town the next morning
that is, they were still making up and trying to get straight their story in what must have been some rather hectic morning hours before ms rice even put on her makeup
these people are not only dangerously dishonest and reckless, they're embarrassingly incompetent and amateur
congressman lynch: the info put out by the white house "certainly wasn't accurate"
"i don't know what the process was"
issa does, he read the emails
" Clarify What".....you still haven't figured out that part about being upset that Obama dropped the ball on the Anniversary of 911? That Obama let the Country Down. That Obama let Americans in Libya Down. Can't quite ascertain how his Team Screwed up and then was found to be Negligent, Incompetent and were found Lacking of Not being able to muster up to those that had come before them that worked in the same field they do. That did the same thing they do.
Kinda difficult for your mind to grasp.....that you can't figure out what a persons mindset was the Day before a certain date. That you can't think of behavior, body language, and even the Statements out of Ones mouth to show.....that Their Mind was nowhere on what AQ had stated. That there is nothing to even show that Obama called for tightening up Security leading into 911.
You must have believed all that BS by Obama how he had AQ on the Run. That AQ wasn't a strength like they use to be.....huh?
Why does this matter? If these reports from Libyan sources are true, then the attack was a major al Qaeda operation. Indeed, the largest that the terror network has mounted outside the Afghan-Pakistan region in more than a decade. In short, an act of war — not a peaceful demonstration that went awry, as the Obama Administration initially said. This has led activists, bloggers and other critics of the president to ask: Did the president ignore an act of war in order to win the 2012 election?
If this suspicion is wrong, the survivors are uniquely placed to dispel this poisonous notion.
If, on the other hand, the attack was an act of war, then the President has a real responsibility to hunt down the enemy and bring them to justice. To date, none of the attackers have been killed or captured.
Indeed, the official investigation is moving with remarkable slowness. The FBI was granted a single 3-hour interview with one “person of interest” in Libya, according to Congressman Wolf. That same individual was interviewed by a New York Times correspondent weeks before the FBI got to him. It took the FBI weeks to visit the building complex where U.S. Ambassador Stevens died, when any evidence would have long since been spoiled. By contrast, local reporters were inside the complex walls within 24 hours of the deadly attack.
Nor have any State department or intelligence personnel been fired, demoted or transferred, although three State department officials did resign. “Six months later not a single American official has been held accountable or lost their job over the inadequate consulate security, intelligence failures, or the administration’s abysmal response during the terrorist attack,” Rep. Wolf said. What Wolf is saying is that no official appointed by the president and confirmed by the U.S. Senate has been disciplined for the Benghazi atrocities, despite ample warnings in the spring and summer of 2012.....snip~

One of you will end up here next!
Not at All.....I am suggesting that Obama was derelict in his Duty. I am also suggesting that Obama was to Worried about his Re-election, and was to worried about running out West Coast to go and Party. (fundraise) That he then decided to deflect when most knew he was playing catch up.....hence Both Clinton and Him Blaming the Anti Muslim Video. Then Obama's Major mistake of calling his then UN Ambassador to come home and make the TV rounds on a Sunday. The Un-impressive Susan Rice.
