(Video) Obama dodges question
on denial of help for Americans
in Benghazi

Washington Times, by Kerry Picket

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/26/2012 9:20:13 PM

President Barack Obama appeared on Colorado's KUSA's 9 News on Friday and was asked by reporter Kyle Clark if the Americans who were killed at the U.S. consulate in Beghazi were denied help during the terrorist attack and if it was fair to "tell Americans that it is still under investigation and that we'll all find out after the election." President Obama never answered that question and managed to repeat his "three directives" several times. Transcript below (bolding is mine) PRESIDENT OBAMA: The election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us

Comments:
Finally a reporter asks 0bama the pertinent question about Benghazi. We here could have written what his response would be. Spin, spin and more lies and spin. By the look on 0bama's face he did not appear to be happy about that leading question.

How can this NOT be about the election?

Don't we have the right to know if we have a COWARD and accomplice to MURDER running for president?

If you didn't hear Rush today read the transcript from his website entitled:

Are Some in the Chain of Command Still Haunted by Carter's Failed Rescue in 1979?

I have never been so angry at anything in my life...or as frightened that this madness could possibly continue for nother four years. (I have confidence in the "Chik-fil-A Underground"...we are legion.)

Hussein said: These are our folks... They were since they were killed.

He is not one of US. Obama was a Fullbright Fellow at Occidental College and this grant can only be held by foreigners. This is why The Donald offered 5 million for this College records.

They were and were denied help in order to keep a narrative that Obama killed Osama and al-Qaida is finished.

Good job from this kid and especially from Jennifer Griffin. Fox News will have an updated Bret Baier program of the killings of Americans in Behghazi tomorrow and repeated twice on Sunday. The "Innocence of Muslims" Video was timed perfectly, even though its author is rotting in Federal Prison in Los Angeles.

Barack Obama gave the old "barn door" defense, that is he ordered whoever to close the "barn door" after the horse ran out of the barn.

Obama admitted that he send those murdered Americans and a lot of others to a very dangerous place, Benghazi, Libya, with what most people now recognize as no adequate force protection in the form of trained American security personnel, the result of that bad decision being four murdered Americans.

Did any help arrive ?
That's the answer.
Obama as Commander in Chief vetoed a rescue plan .
Period. End.
The father of Tyrone Woods says that the White House murdered his son.
Cannot disagree.
Cindy Sheehan was the star of every media outlet.
Judge Woods should get the same courtesy.
Amazingly, only FOX will give him the time of day...
And other than FOX, no one else
is touching the story of the drunken and extremely loud Vice President of the United States trying to engage the grieving father
in a discussion
of his dead son's private parts.
Just feet from his flag draped coffin.
This administration is the most repugnant and loathsome group of evildoers in US history.

Patience being a virtue, ten days after his humiliating election defeat would be soon enough to see Obama, Leon Panetta, Valerie Jarrett, and Hillary escorted onto a US Marshall's bus in handcuffs headed for some refreshing (and memory jogging) water activity.

Obama pulled a Putin.

Twenty-three sailors out of 118 survived the initial explosions on the Kursk. Offers of help from the US and Britain were refused. Several days later the sailors died of asphyxiation.

0bama's evasiveness is tantamount to an admission of guilt.

I agree with others comments that he looked stoned or something. Has anyone else noticed that when he's trying to sound "American" he borrows "Bushisms" like calling people "folks"? When George called people folks, it sounded natural, that's the way he talks. Not so with Hussein.

The local guy asked the question that ABC-CBS-NBC-CNN needs to be asking "Were these Americans under attack denied help?" and when the president wasn't forth coming the reporter asked again. And the president dissembled both times. He said he immediately gave the order to secure our personnel and I believe I heard he did do that....however, it was for other American embassies in the area.

#15 I am struck by Obama's use of the word Folks too. Rush was talking about that yesterday. Terrorists referred to as folks? Like The Baile Folklorico perhaps? Folks in bright costumes and dancing about with AK 47s and Mortars to Mariachi music? Or maybe River Dancers? How inappropriate is that??? Obviously Obama will resort to any verbal contortions to avoid referring to his "folks" as terrorists. He is disgusting.

"Mr. President, we know for a fact that help was requested by those in the embassy.
Was that help sent?"

A blogger pointed this out in the last debate. Notice how many times Obama is blinking when he talks! It's a sign of lying and certainly being discomforted. Re-watch the video in this article (even if your stomach makes you turn the volume off) and note how many times this man blinks. It's WAY out of the ordinary. Could he be annoyed by "the Light"? "For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed." (John 3:20)

He bulls****d his way through the interview.

Kyle asked great questions but the answers could have used follow-up.

For instance, "The Dept of Energy is a cabinet level dept under the control and supervision of the Secretary of Energy (Steven Chu) who is a political appointee of yours. How does your answer absolve you of involvement in the matter of who gets stimulus money?"

That's one thing I've noticed about Dims. When asked a question that they have no answer to or don't want to answer truthfully (if they ever could), they immediately change the subject or the tone on the conversation. "The question that really needs to be asked...." or "as I've said many time before....". You get the picture. A full and trug
truthful answer will NEVER be coming forth. They simply aren't capable of telling the truth.

A fascinating article by Francis Wilkinson appeared in Bloomberg View last week (h/t Instapundit). Wilkinson detailed the fact that income inequality between whites and blacks is worse in leftist cities: Minneapolis-St. Paul. San Francisco. Chicago. Even Madison, Wisconsin. If you are politically liberal and value relatively high levels of income equality, you might live in one of these quintessentially liberal U.S. cities. Yet all four lurk in the bottom half of the 2014 National Urban League’s State of Black America report on income inequality between blacks and whites. Among the many places where black-white income is less skewed are Phoenix, Arizona,

The government says it has stopped one of its illegal activities, according to the Washington Post. The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to the Social Security agency. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far

Here are a few things missing from President Obama´s statement Tuesday marking the anniversary of the 2013 terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon: • The word "terrorism." • The word "bombing." • The fact that the bombers were motivated by Islamist extremist beliefs. No, in his mind this was a "tragedy" that just somehow happened and from which we need to recover, not a criminal act that may have been preventable. Here´s the statement, in full: A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon. Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded. Today, we remember Krystle Campbell

A new Citizens United Political Victory Fund poll shows that Republican Arizona voters have had it with Sen. John McCain, even though the senator has signaled his intentions to run for a sixth term in 2016. According to the poll, 64.2 percent of likely GOP primary voters said that they are ready for someone new to take the job and only 29.3 percent signaled a willingness to re-elect McCain. The poll also shows that McCain loses to other potential Arizona Repubican candidates in a primary. McCain loses to Gov. Jan Brewer 47.7 percent to 29 percent and to Rep. Matt Salmon 48.2 percent

Last week, a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee held a hearing provocatively titled “Is Al-Qaeda Winning?” The answers that the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade received were profoundly unsettling. Former Senator Joseph Lieberman (I–Conn.) testified that Syria had become a key focal point of al-Qaeda’s efforts. He noted that there are more foreign militants fighting in Syria today than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the past 10 years: “Put very bluntly, Syria has become the most dangerous terrorist sanctuary in the world today—and the United States has not coherent or credible policy for dealing with it.”

As horrible as Kathleen Sebelius has been as this nation´s health and human services secretary, she has been exactly who President Barack Obama wanted her to be. This was no rogue incompetent tinkering with America´s health care. This was one of Obama´s chief lieutenants, one who was doing his bidding every step of that treacherous road they traveled together. Don´t get me wrong; Sebelius was inexcusably bad — arrogant, defiant, uncompassionate, dogmatic and unrepentant. Obama cashiered her only because it was time to deflect blame from himself and change the channel. There is nothing incompatible between assigning major blame to Sebelius for all

Marco Rubio is beefing up his political action committee, making significant high-level changes to it and his senatorial staff. The changes are intensifying speculation that Rubio – who many thought that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would pick to be his vice president in 2102 – is preparing the terrain for the 2016 presidential race. Publicly, Rubio, a Florida Republican, has said he has not yet decided whether to aim for the White House in two years, or whether he’ll seek re-election to the Senate. His announcement, on his website, suggested he might be looking at running in 2016, but stopped short of

Survey shows ObamaCare sending

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades. "For the last, about, five years they´ve been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they´ve been doing (it)," says Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute. "But at 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all the states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we´ve seen for decades." That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring. "There are specific states with exorbitant increases," says Gottlieb.

Hume said the reaction to his comments about Holder and President Barack Obama “benefitting enormously” because of their race was equal parts positive and negative, with about half of people on Twitter calling him “racist” because there were no African-Americans present for the debate on Fox News Sunday. “In other words, in order to discuss this, you have to have an African-American present,” Hume added. “But if you’re just white,

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar.

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

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

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
