President Obama Abandons the American People
President Obama continues to campaign for re-election, avoiding answers to the troubling questions about the murders in Benghazi of Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods on September 11th, 2012.
The legacy press and media are aiding and abetting this disgraceful cover up by avoiding this scandal completely.
If it were not for Fox News, Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze.com and Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com, the U.S. voter would only be hearing about Bain, Birth Control, Binders, Big Bird, Bayonets, Bullshit and not Benghazi.
Obama hopes to keep it buried until after his diminishing chances for re election, but the facts keep coming out as we slowly learn the truth. Ironically, this administration has leaked too much secure information when it came to touting the killing of Bin Laden, now suddenly they can keep a “secret”.
We already know that Reuters reportedly obtained three emails dispatched by the State Department’s Operations Center to multiple government offices, including addresses at the White House, Pentagon, intelligence community and FBI, on the afternoon of September 11.
The first email came 20-30 minutes after the attack. It carried the subject “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack.” That email said “approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well.”
The White House and Department of State clung to a story that this attack was the result of a “anti-Muslim video” and even arrested a U.S. citizen living in California to back up their claim.
The most disgraceful moment was on September 14, during the ceremony at Joint Base Andrews honoring the four fallen heroes, when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton attempted to hide the terrorist assault this way, “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that because it is senseless, and it is totally unacceptable.”
This is a desperate White House who have thrown the CIA, the Defense Department, the Department of State and the brave souls of four Americans under the bus.
Retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said Saturday he has sources saying President Barack Obama was in the situation room at the White House watching the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya unfold.
Two unarmed U.S. drones were dispatched to the consulate and recorded the final hours of the attack, which killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
A former Department of Defense official said Friday that if President Barack Obama really gave an order to secure U.S. personnel when the consulate in Libya came under assault, there will a paper trail to prove it.
Francis “Bing” West, who served as an assistant secretary of defense under President Ronald Reagan, told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren that the president’s explanation about his actions when the U.S. mission in Benghazi was attacked should be easily verifiable.
On Friday, Fox News Channel’s Jennifer Griffin reported that sources on the ground in Benghazi told her “that three urgent requests from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack nearly seven hours later were denied by officials in the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators to ‘stand down’ rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.”
The day before, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said there was not enough clear information coming from Benghazi ”and as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground — or in that area, General Ham, General Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.” He added, “this happened within a few hours and it was really over before, you know, we had the opportunity to really know what was happening.”
This is all in dispute according to Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz who sits on two Homeland Security subcommittees relaying the responses from General Carter Ham heading up the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM) who had direct responsibility for the situation.
General Ham told Chaffetz that the forces were available, but that no order to use them was given. Defense Secretary Panetta had claimed that the refusal to use force had come from him, General Dempsey and General Ham.
On 18 October 2012, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta participated in a “DOD News Briefing on Efforts to Enhance the Financial Health of the Force.” In his introductory remarks, Mr. Panetta said: “Today I am very pleased to announce that President Obama will nominate General David Rodriguez to succeed General Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command . . .”
So rumors are flying that General Ham has been relieved of duty for not staying under the big wheels of the White House Bus.
This disgraceful action by President Obama fits the narrative he clings to; Osama is dead and Al Qaeda is on the run. That’s why the “War on Terror” was replaced by weaker terms such as “Overseas Contingency Operations”, “Man Caused Disasters” and “Workplace Violence”.
Obama wants to continue to appease the radical Muslims still believing the premise of his Cairo speech of 2009 and his support of the Muslim Brotherhood in the “Arab Spring”. In his speech before the U.N. General Assembly of September 25th, Obama said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
To me the future must not belong to those who kill U.S. citizens in cold blood!
It is easy to point all the blame at President Obama who has shown a huge weakness in protecting our interests and defending these United States at home and abroad, made even worse on the anniversary of September 11th.
Whenever we learn the awful truth behind this catastrophic foreign intelligence failure and the reasons that four brave citizens serving our country died, we might be able to charge the guilty and punish the murderers.
In the meantime, our President has refused to take any responsibility for this tragedy and deserves to be booted out of office on November 6th.
I have great hope that a majority in this nation believe as I do; Barack Obama — You’re Fired!
