Obama punted to Panetta for U.S
response to Benghazi attack

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 2/9/2013 7:06:06 AM

Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta on Thursday revealed he personally broke the news to President Obama that the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, was under attack last year — but he and the president didn’t speak the rest of the night as the assault on the compound unfolded.Mr. Panetta said he and Mr. Obama, along with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, discussed the attack for 15 minutes in the Oval Office the afternoon of Sept. 11,

The worthless piece of crap "commander in chief" couldn´t be bothered with trying to save American lives -- he had to get ready to go to a fundraiser in Las Vegas. I grieve for all our fine men and women in the military who have to serve under this ass clown.

I didn´t think it was possible for me to be more disgusted and angry about the Øbamination we have for a president, but every day it´s another punch in the gut.

This is shameful, capital letters, no question. Barack should be shunned and ridiculed. But why didn´t Leon put on his big boy pants, take it to the president, and make a rescue happen?

None of this makes sense until you realize the essential truth: Obama-supporting Democrats do not want His Majesty to be, and definitely did not elect His Majesty to be, a good commander in chief. Obama-supporting Democrats loathe the American military even more than Clinton did - so why in the world would they want their anti-American Idol to act responsibly and patriotically in this part of his duties? They don´t. It´s obvious, when you see it.

Had they seriously wanted a responsible commander in chief, would they have ever considered voting for Obama? Of course not.

Unless the repub House and dim Senate are willing to do the right thing and remove Obie and the others responsible for the Benghazi crisis (the PIAPS can certainly try on a pair of handcuffs as she is led to prison), nothing will change. His troll Carney will continue to confuse and confound right out of the liberal play book.

Zippy didn´t even touch the ball. All he did was call for some ambiguous play in the huddle and walk off the field. In classic ´´lead-from-behind´´ form, the gutless wonder evinced a dereliction of duty heretofore unmatched by any past president.

Detached Barry sat out Benghazi???
Well, surprise, surprise, surprise!

IMO, President Jarret told him that he needed to be as far away from the Benghazi events as he could get. Making the domestic political assessment, I think she told him to, ´´Let Leon handle it.´´ Political considerations --- especially late in the reelection campaign --- trump everything in this WH, and certainly did on this one. Despicable.

In the case of Bin Laden, Obie insinuated himself into the middle of the action post hoc, because it was a successful mission. In this case he´s in "the buck never got here" mode because the outcome was horrific. So horrific, that he would rather look unpresidential by his lack of leadership, than to be responsible for what will eventually be revealed as an impeachable secret gun running operation to aid al Queda.

Now, what is Hillary´s excuse for being AWOL? These were her people who were operating on her orders. Why was she unavailable?

The all need to come before a select committee.

Perhaps Panetta and Dempsey did nothing because they didn´t have CBA (Cross Border Authority) from Obama...
Where was the Commander in Chief that night as our people fought to their deaths? Where was Obama as our military couldn´t help our people under fire, fighting for their lives in the name of our president, sent there by him for the USA...but got no help.... as they had no permission?

Was he playing basketball? With Reggie Love? Was he drunk? MIA? Dereliction of duty? Just doesn´t care if Americans are slaughtered?

Obama no more belongs leading this nation than Frank Marshall Davis did...

That Obama punts is shameful. On the other hand, if we knew that he was regularly punting to people who were competent, that might be grounds for hope. I suspect that most of the time he punts to ValJar.

Panetta stated he, Hillary and Dempsey wanted to send help into Syria..to arm the rebels...but Obama would not give permission...This is a set-up. Another LIE

They were gun running and Missile running out of the Benghazi Annex. British papers are reporting weapons from Benghazi are showing up in Syria and in Algeria....being used by AlQaeda. Which is why Panetta is erecting a wall saying Obama would not agree to arm the rebels....BECAUSE he was ILLEGALLY SELLING ARMS TO OUR ENEMY ALQAEDA and Benghazi was the point of sale for arms running...
the Lockheed COO resigned when Petraus did for the same BS reason which stinks because he had tripled arms sales, yes 3x the arms sales in 2011....

Guess we know where those 40,000 missing missile and Man-pads came from that Congressman Jason Chaffetz referred to that were missing out of Libya...

Obama armed the Middle East for the Arab Spring that turned it over to the IsalmoCommunists, The Muslim Brotherhood.

Question: What is worse than the pathetic empty chair that somehow still bears the title CIC?

Answer: The people who are protecting him - like Panetta saying there is no doubt in his mind that Obama cared about those who died while hoping our CIC would send help.

One of the things that Panetta said is that they were getting ready to deploy. So what happened? Didn´t someone contact Obama to ask for the authority? Panetta said he only talked to zero once. Someone else must have asked, right? Seems to me there is a lot more to know.

FTA: “We sit around all day long and talk about the resources that we should have and don’t have. … [But] the big problem here is the cover-up, and nobody talks about it, and that’s a tragedy.”

And they still won´t talk about it. 0bama can´t be bothered with things like this. He and his delightful wife are in it for the perks only. He´s a national disgrace and the most destructive man ever to reside in the White House. I pray with all my might that there comes a day where he will pay for what he has done to us and this country. That would include those in his regime also.

Of course they didn´t bother him anymore. The plan was going as scripted, the ambassador was being kidnapped. The meddling Seals missed things up and Stevens got killed. Obama retired to his privacy to get stoned on cocain to celebrate the anniversary of 9-11-01 and when the botched plot was discovered, the phony documentary story went ahead as planned.

The problem was that there was no leadership. Obama didn´t step up, Panetta didn´t step up, Clinton didn´t step up.

Obama proved over and over again that he is no leader during his stint in Harvard and state and federal legislature. He chose Panetta, who is a career bureaucrat, to ´lead´ DoD. Panetta has stepped up with women in combat and benefits to ´gay partners´ as his signature accomplishments.

The administration is a hollow vacuum from the top down.

Huckabee played clips of Senator Lindsey Graham absolutely hammering Panetta in the hearings.
Panetta was desperately trying to give Obama cover
and avoid answering Graham´s
relentless questioning.
It was Graham who got Panetta to finally admit that Obama bugged out during the crisis.
Graham has been terrific the last couple of weeks in the various Senate hearings from Hagel´s confirmation,
gun control and Panetta.
Limbaugh continues to besmirch Senator Graham when he should be getting kudos.
So..was Panetta the acting POTUS or was it Valerie Jarrett or Michelle ?
Where was Obama that night and what was he doing ?
The 25th Amendment must be invoked when the president is unable to perform
the duties of the office.
Biden should have been the one legally acting as POTUS.
Lawless doesn´t even begin to describe this administration.
We do not have an ethical national media ,
the Democrats will always cover for Obama ,
the Republicans are the minority party in the Senate,
down 10 seats ,
and the House Republicans have a shrunken majority .
It´s almost impossible to hold Obama accountable and he knows it.

Obama is a muslim with black power/Black Panther sympathies going back to 20 years with Rev. Wright. Eric Holder is the same kind of racist.
I bet if Panneta told Obama on 9/11/2012 that the four trapped Americans in Benghazi were blacks then Obama would have send gunships to help them right away.

obama and all the corrupt people around him spent more time in the cover up. If he had simple said ´rescue them" then there would be no problem.

I do suspect something else was going on as hinted by others posting here or simply that obama does not care about human life - which is also thru.

Pennetta talked to Obama about the trapped Americans at 50PM for 15 minutes on 9/11/2012. After that, Peneta could not reach Obama. Where was Obama all night were he could not be found? Was he drunk, or high on dope, or was he shooting basketball. Two weeks later, Obama in a speech to the UN still blamed the Benghazi violence on a silly video made by an old Coptic man living in Los Angeles. Obama, Susan Rice and Hillary all lied, lied and LIED and our pinko media bought it hook, line and sinker. I don´t know if MSM reporters are dumb, commies, or just love Obama because he is a black pinko?

Ya know. I don´t want to start rumors, but Zero and PIAPs were really, really cozy together on that 60 Minutes interview. I mean, didn´t she say they could finish each other´s sentences? So, could it be possible they were together on the night of the attack and that´s why neither one of them was available? I mean BOTH were unavailable at the same exact time? What are the odds of that? And that´s why they jumped on the video story. And that´s why the poor man that made the video is still in jail so that Moochelle and the Bent One and all the little Moochelles and Chelsea can be spared the embarrassment of this possible liaison? Huh? Possible? Truth is stranger than fiction as someone said.

Sarcasm now off....If I could be more disgusted with anyone than these Obama administration lowlifesy, it would be the hypocritical, bottom feeding, dishonest press. As someone said, God only knows where we will be in 2016. The poor families of the revered Benghazi dead. We need to pray for them everyday.

Panetta and Dempsey set up the next chapter...it is about o leak out that guns and missiles were being sold out of Benghazi...as they´ve recently turned up in Algeria and Syria ....in the hands of AlQaeda

Obama was gun running out of Benghazi...missile running...and those two fellow travellers made a point of statingObama didn´t want to arm the rebels but Hillary, Panetta and Dempsey did...they tried to put a wall of protection up for Obama...as the other shoe is about to drop.

#48...Clinton is every bit the communist Obama is...
Had Gingrich not stopped him and Hillarycare, and the press been as corrupt as they are the American people would have received their chains then...instead of under Obama

Media and particularly cable news has never been as polarized as it is today. It’s also never been tilted more towards opinion and less toward objective reporting of hard news. As a result, trust in media has fallen to an all-time low. Reporters in particular are looked upon as dishonest brokers in the business, with Gallup showing only 20 percent of those polled finding journalists honest and ethical (that’s 65 percent lower than nurses, 50 percent lower than doctors and engineers). Solid investigative reporters are simply in short supply and demand. Why? Because with opinion programming so much cheaper to produce

WASHINGTON — In her darkest hour last fall, Kathleen Sebelius suffered one of the deepest cuts from an old family friend who accused her of “gross incompetence” over the rollout of the Affordable Care Act and demanded that she resign as secretary of health and human services. Now she is weighing revenge. Ms. Sebelius is considering entreaties from Democrats who want her to run against that old friend, Senator Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas. Several Democrats said this week that Ms. Sebelius had been mentioned with growing frequency as someone who could wage a serious challenge to Mr. Roberts, 77, who is

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

The moon took on an eerie blood-red hue early Tuesday during the first total lunar eclipse of 2014, a celestial sight that wowed potentially millions of stargazers across North and South America. The total lunar eclipse of April 15 lasted about 3.5 hours between late Monday and early Tuesday, with the Earth´s shadow slowing darkening the face of the so-called "Blood Moon" in a jaw-dropping sight for stargazers willing to stay up extra late or rise super-early for the event. "Definitely worth the early wake-up call," skywatcher Brett Bonine of Arkansas told Space.com in an email.

Barbara Walters Grills Don Lemon on MH370:
CNN Wouldn’t Cover If ‘Not for the Ratings’

Don Lemon filled in as a guest co-host on The View Monday, and right off the bat he faced questions about CNN’s near-nonstop MH370 coverage. Barbara Walters told him that CNN’s covered this “more than any other story than I can remember.” Lemon said, “I think you’re probably right, but the audience interest is there.” Walters brought up the ratings issue, to which Lemon responded, “It’s not just the ratings, but we’re giving––part of what our mission is to give the audience what they want.” He argued that it’s important to keep covering the missing plane for the sake of the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
