Benghazi – Panetta Says “Obama Absent”, He Went To Bed….

Gee, would have been nice to see the truth come out BEFORE the election.   Alas, that wouldn’t suffice the media narrative.

blood on their hands

WASHINGTON DC – Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified this morning on Capitol Hill that President Barack Obama was absent the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012:

Panetta said, though he did meet with Obama at a 5 o’clock prescheduled gathering, the president left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under siege, “up to us.”

In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that night. There were no calls about what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.

The 5 o’clock meeting was a pre-scheduled 30-minute session, where, according to Panetta’s recollection, they spent about 20 minutes talking a lot about the American embassy that was surrounded in Egypt and the situation that was just unfolding in Benghazi. [...]

White House 9-11-12 Donilon - McDonough

“While Americans were under assault in Benghazi, the president found time for a non-urgent, politically useful, hour-long call to Prime Minister Netanyahu. And his senior national security staff had to find time to arrange the call, brief the president for the call, monitor it, and provide an immediate read-out to the media. I suspect Prime Minister Netanyahu, of all people, would have understood the need to postpone or shorten the phone call if he were told that Americans were under attack as the president chatted. But for President Obama, a politically useful telephone call—and the ability to have his aides rush out and tell the media about that phone call—came first.”

    I know this may be insignificant, but it is DISGRACEFUL to me that Panetta would use the phrase “lost his life” when referring to Ambassador Stevens. He didn’t LOSE ANYTHING…..his life was savagely TAKEN FROM HIM BY EVIL MEN and to phrase this vicious murder as anything less is appalling!!!

      • That’s the same variant of the “passive voice” the MSM worldwide uses every time Holocaust Remembrance Day comes around.

        “…the Holocaust, when X million Jews died in Germany.”

        Like they just UP AND DIED.

        The passive voice is sometimes used without even a named person as a subject, but “lives were lost” in “violence”. “Gun violence has claimed X lives”.

        I want to scream through a 100dB megaphone at these reporters, an inch away from their ears: No, you manipulative P.O.S., “…X million Jews were murdered by citizens of Germany who were following a narcissistic dictator whom they worshiped or feared!!!”

        And: No, you manipulative P.O.S., “…people shot to death X people.”

        They do it on purpose. And only because it works.

          I was yelling at my tv when I heard Leon Panetta say the attack was brief and there was no prior warning. WTF? The attack lasted NINE HOURS! And, the terrorists had previously blown a hole in their stone fence. Several requests for increased security were ignored and eventually denied.

          I came this close to smashing my tv. I wanted a reporter or anyone to challenge Panetta, but nobody did.

    Lets face facts….what is just as sad, just as bad as Obama not caring, is the fact that 50% of Americans don’t care either.

            There is a story here about that picture above, citing Obama on a phone call with Netanyahu during the time the attack was happening. The site mentioned that it was getting spam attacks after posting that photo.

            IMHO, this was a planned kidnap attempt to secure Obama’s re-election. That is why no one was called and if any one was, they were told to stand down. It all went off plan, they killed him instead.

            Of course Obama should have done something but he didn’t. same with Clinton, biden, and all his ‘security advisors’ in the room.

Gun running to al Qaeda and the Muslim Bros out of a CIA weapons depot in Benghazi and Zero knew what was going on. He also knew Stevens knew all about it. Dead men tell no tales. Putin knows what happened. Turkey knows what happened. We, the American public, are the ones in the dark unless we piece together various bits of information and then take a guess.

      From the article above:
      Panetta’s testimony directly contradicts President Obama’s own claim to have issued “three direectives” as soon as he learned “what was going on” in Benghazi. As he told a Denver reporter in October: 
      I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure we are securing our personnel and that we are doing whatever we need to. Number two, we are going to investigate exactly what happened and make sure it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice.
