Did Obama Watch While
They Fought for their Lives?

American Thinker, by Karin McQuillan

Original Article

Posted By:trapper, 10/27/2012 12:37:39 AM

They fought for their lives for seven hours. 9/11/ 2012. Benghazi. The White House watched. No help was sent and they died. Four Americans died in the jihadi attack on our consulate in Benghazi. Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, two retired SEALS who were working as civilian security specialists in Benghazi, learned that Ambassador Stevens and nine other people at the consulate were under attack and rushed to their defense. The fourth man was Sean Smith, father of three, an Air Force veteran, working for the State Department in Libya.

The one name that has been consistently absent from any of the coverage is Valerie Jarrett, yet she is reportedly the person who persuaded Obama to postpone the bin Laden operation. What, if any, was her involvement in this?

Who was it that wanted the Ambassador killed? Holding back help makes me think
that maybe he knew something and was going to talk?

Forget about Valerie Jarrett or anyone else other than The President - WHAT DID HE KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT - Who sent Carney and Rice out to LIE -Who gave the Order for the requests for assistance to be denied, etc., etc.

These questions should be asked of The President and his Flunkies all day, every day - the Mainstream Media should be asked all day, every day, why they refuse to ask Obama and his Flunkies these questions all day, every day - Four Americans are dead - Our Pathetic Excuse for a President schedules Campaign Appearances and Fundraisers instead of Press Conferences and National Security Meetings- This Administration and these Media are Disgraceful

I want to throw up just from reading the headline. Dear God in heaven, the sheer horror of this story just keeps growing and growing and growing. I gotta stop thinking about it and trust the wisdom and power of God Almighty to bring about justice. And trust in Him to deliver our country from those who would destroy it.

It is not enough that Speaker Boehner write to the WH demanding to see everything they have. The WH will stall. Go to Boehner's website, send an email telling him we want ACTION on this travesty by Monday morning - on the floor of the House. It's his house and he's responsible to us to do something. The whole d*#n administration should be hung. Boehner needs to be so loud the MSM is forced to listen. Maybe we also need an orchestrated protest.

This is as bad as the betrayal of our troops in Vietnam by Johnson and Nixon. Only the President could make the decision for everybody to sit around on their butts and do nothing but watch the show on TV. Obama is a man without honor. Totally without honor. He and other liberals who never served in the military and don't know the business end of a gun shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the oval office. I watched an interview today where Charles Lane of the WaPo said that the President didn't want to send any support to Benghazi because some of those troops might get hurt. Good grief! He doesn't even begin to understand that warriors are not afraid of getting hurt, they only want to fight for the folks and honor the flag of their country. To abandon an American Ambassador to a mob is criminal conduct. God help us if this coward in reelected.

The thing is, Obama went to bed that night. Knowing our citizens were under attack for 7 hours. The reason people keep bringing up Valerie Jarrett is because there is good reason to believe she is the one who kept refusing to kill Osama bin Laden. A shadowy advisor to POTUS making national security decisions. Why would Benghazi be any different? Obama didn't even attend his National Securi briefing on September 12, he jetted off to Vegas, though.

Who ever is doing the leaking is doing America a favor. I am sure they only trust FOX. What the he.. Does that say about America's own Pravda media? I've been reading on left wing blogs and twitter, libs are discounting this b/ c it's from FOX.

Where in the heck are John Boehner and other elected Republicans? Good grief, is it too much to ask that they stand up for this country?

This is unacceptable!! #15, I wouldn't put a lot of blame on Nixon.,,,he did get us out of Vietnam--but I do blame LBJ because his companies had exclusive contracts in the war zone. He kept the war going for his own personal gain. Just as Zero let these men die for political gain. Sick! Treason!

It was either send help, or contradict Obama's narrative.

Obama can't have people contradicting his narrative.

So, he sat there and did nothing as four Americans were slowly, brutally murdered by Islamic terrorists.

It's becoming clearer since Panetta said what he said which was basically we didn't know if it was safe enough to send rescue troops in.If they did that and some troops got killed then that's a more disastrous headline than simply 4 people being sacrificed at the altar of Obama's re-election. It was strictly a political calculation not to send in troops.

That's what the troops are really for the protect Americans.

Then you had the prospects of Libyans being killed by American troops which would have blown Obama's "AlQueda is dead" banter.

From this article, it seems that Obama knew "in real time" what was going on. Yet he chose to do nothing.

As Rush said, he is cold, and I believe he could stand by and do nothing. Isn't Obama the one who picks out which Islamist the drones are going to kill? And haven't they killed hundreds on Obama's say-so?

O'Reilly and Geraldo are both saying that Obama couldn't have been in the know, that it's wrong to say he didn't act. BOR actually said he knows how the WH works, and Obama couldn't have been the one not to act.

The Peter Principle is a belief that, in an organization where promotion is based on achievement, success, and merit, that organization's members will eventually be promoted beyond their level of ability.

The principle is commonly phrased, "employees tend to rise to their level of incompetence." In more formal parlance, the effect could be stated as: employees tend to be given more authority until they cannot continue to work competently.

Obviously the 'Peter Principle' has been replaced by the 'Obama Principle' ... Start at the top and work your way down.

Don't know if he watched it personally, but he sure did KNOW what was going on. If he were a Republican, the impeachment hearings would have already begun. Shame, shame. BTW, that "great" reporter, Geraldo Riviera also wants to know why Mitt Romney didn't DEMAND obama answer to what happened in Ben Ghazi. That is just one more sign of the ignorance on the left. Mitt Romney will be the next President, NOT the next Walter Cronkite. It is NOT his JOB to get into a spitting war with the liar-in-chief during a debate that is already weighed in obama's favor.

The United States is planning to give up its last remaining authority over the technical management of the Internet. The Commerce Department announced Friday that it will give the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), an international nonprofit group, control over the database of names and addresses that allows computers around the world to connect to each other. Administration officials say U.S. authority over the Internet address system was always intended to be temporary and that ultimate power should rest with the "global Internet community."

One of the least reported angles to the Crimea story is the plight of Russia´s Tatars - an ethnic group that was forcibly removed from their original home in the Crimea following World War II for supposedly collaborating with the Nazis. Only in the last few years have the Tatars been allowed to return. So you will forgive them for not quite trusting the Russians to keep their word.

CPAC presented a panel on immigration today. I wasn’t there, but this report suggests that the panel was an improvement over last year’s, which was basically a cheerleading session for amnesty and a path to citizenship. Unlike last year, today’s panel included one member, Derrick Morgan of the Heritage Foundation, who opposes that agenda. The panel was supposed to discuss this question: “Can there be meaningful immigration reform without citizenship?” The answer is “yes” if one believes that amnesty represents meaningful immigration reform.

At the Olympics opener, there was Vladimir Putin, looking every inch the stolid Michael Corleone in the baptism scene from Godfather II. Putin was waiting impassively for those big snowflakes to turn into Olympic rings while plans were hatching in the Ukraine to commit murder. The Corleone baptism went better than the snowflakes spectacular, though. The snowflakes malfunction was worthy of the Soviet era. One snowflake failed to transform -- except on Russian TV, which, per London´s Telegraph, opens magically as Putin watches coolly. Fakery has always been a Russian specialty; brutality another.

House Republicans "capitulated" in agreeing to the two-year budget deal reached last night and left the country to deal with an unsustainable fiscal situation until the peak of the presidential primaries in 2015, when nothing will get done, former federal budget director David Stockman told CNBC on Wednesday. "First, let´s be clear—it´s a joke and betrayal," Stockman, who served under President Ronald Reagan, said on "Squawk on the Street." "It´s the final surrender of the House Republican leadership to Beltway politics and kicking the can and ignoring the budget monster that´s hurtling down the road."

The Department of Education spends billions of dollars annually, and touts phase three of its "race to the top," but the sad fact is that based on testing results, American education is on a race to the bottom. We spend more than any other nation on earth yet rank in the bottom quartile (26th out of 34) of OECD (developed) nations in the latest international comparison, the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA).

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC talk show is facing cancellation amid poor ratings, sources exclusively tell Confidenti@l.Farrow, 28 — the opinionated, blue-eyed son of actress Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra (even Farrow’s not sure which) — has been a disaster for MSNBC. The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered in late February.The theory was that Farrow, a Rhodes scholar who graduated college when he was 15 and went on to score degrees from Yale and Oxford, would bring his 245,000 Twitter followers with him to television

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

Today sees the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s (IPCC) latest findings on the state of "global warming" and the news isn´t good. Here are some of the highlights: Giant malarial mosquitoes the size of crane flies may descend en masse and drain us of our blood so quickly with their powerful razor sharp probosces that we won´t even have time to be infected - we´ll be dead before we hit the floor; Bangladesh, Tuvalu, The Maldives and Florida will all be submerged; Four horsemen with skulls for faces, glowing red eyes and huge scythes will gallop across

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
