Obama Did Nothing to Save American Lives in Benghazi--and Lied About It

    Under direct questioning by Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Panetta admitted that he had no communication with President Obama after their “pre-scheduled” meeting at 5:00 p.m. EDT. The attack on the consulate had already been under way for 90 minutes at that time. Neither the president nor anyone else from the White House called afterwards to check what was happening; the Commander-in-Chief had left it “up to us,” said Panetta.

    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.

    That same claim was subsequently repeated by other Democrats, including Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, who came to the president’s defense. But if those directives were indeed given--and proof has never been produced--they were given long after the attack, not while the attack was going on, during which time the president did nothing.

    We are in the midst of a blame game--search for the guilty, punish the innocent.

    Retrospection: Did the rules of engagement include getting permission from the commander in chief? We have a fault in our system: we allow too many to sleep at the helm while the rest play. We had plenty of warning 7Dec41.

    How does one deal with high tech bungling? Vote.

    Even so, come Lord Jesus.

    Anyone with half a brain knew Obama was lying. Hillary predicted it in the 2008 primary. Obama is lazy, all it takes is one look! The sad part is no one cares. The radical left would never condemn their Fuhrer. The young folks who can't get a job apparently because of Obama apparently like him since they can slop a few more years at the parents trough. And the people who don't like Obama well that is just tough. Suck it up for 4 more years!

    The entire Benghazi affair beginning in the spring of 2012 shows a number of things about Obama and possibly Hillary Clinton and others in the Obama administration:

    1. Their utter incompetence.

    2. Their complete lack of concern over the loss of life.

    3. Their total obsession with the re election of Obama and his intent to establish a socialist state.

    It is sad that the questioning of the Sec. of Defense did not occur before the election. It is perhaps more sad that those who questioned Sec. Clinton did not get a single responsible answer.

    Obama is well described by the following:

    Better to look like an idiot than guilty of aiding and abetting the enemy.

    You right-wingers are just upset that the public doesn't buy into this "blame Obama" for murder. It is just another example how out of touch some of you are.

    Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice had all been lying from the get-go. They would like to think that because many Americans are bedazzled by the presence of a "black" man in the White House and sell their votes for smartphones they could get away with impeachable offenses and lie thru their teeth by blaming the murders of Americans on a stupid anti-Islam move created by a Coptic Christian getting back at the "religion of peace" for the slaying of those who profess the Name of Christ.
    Then they wanted the American public, practically every household of whom boasts of a veteran or someone active in military service, that this country's president, the country that gave the world the airplane, the automobile, the telegraph, the telephone, and most of the advanced technologies of this and past generation, DOES NOT HAVE IN PLACE THE TECHNOLOGY AND THE COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS THAT WILL ENABLE ITS PRESIDENT TO KNOW OF EVENTS HAPPENING TO AMERICANS AND THE COUNTRY'S EMBASSIES WITHIN MINUTES OF ITS OCCURENCE INCLUDING THE REASONS.
    LIARS, LIARS, PANTS ARE ON FIRE AT THE WHITE HOUSE EVERYDAY.
    Hell, my son who used to be a watch officer in the US Air Force knew of every suicide committed by every service member within hours of its occurence, including the possible reasons for the suicide. In fact, it depressed him a lot it led to the worsening of his restless leg syndrome eventually.
    Even if Obama is not complicit in the murders of those Americans, WHICH HE IS, he failed to perform his duties as president of this country by allowing the desecration of its sovereign territories WHEN IT WAS WITHIN HIS POWER TO DO SO.
    How is it within his power ?
    Oh, so Hillary Clinton NEVER informed him, the president of this country, of the IMMINENT DANGER to the lives and properties of Americans and the embassy?
    LIARS. LIARS.

    PB, Snow knows the Left is a bunch of lying Marxists. He defends them anyway and calls himself a Christian.

    And, I thank God for that.

    The further out of touch (socially acceptable*) that I can be with this ungodly world's view of what's right and wrong, the more narrow my path becomes.

    The "public" is on the wide path, marching in lockstep, to the wide gate of Hell. There can be no doubt about that according to the scriptures. I'm not a biblical scholar, so if my memory serves, no where in the scriptures does it say that the unwashed masses (public, majority, etc.) will line up at the narrow gate.

    Whether politically conservative or liberal, as Christians, shouldn't each of us be upset (meaning rejecting - standing against) and staying as far out of touch as we can? Our only "touch" should be an outreached hand to bring others to Christ, while remembering the two greatest commandments.

    Perhaps we should coin a new phrase. Toss out "right-wingers" and "left-wingers".

    God-wingers and Satan-wingers - To be one, it is necessary to stay out of touch with the other.

    To wipe the dust, from the touch, of the ungodly from our feet.

    Think about it.

    Blame Obama for murder? Who in this board did that? What Obama did do was nothing. No phone calls, took no briefings, refused to engage in the safety of the men in Bhengazi. He was seriously in dereliction from duty and needs to be impeached. He refused to even be the slightest bit concerned or engage and because of is disinterest and political agenda during an election cycle Americans died.

    Obama needs to be impeached.

    You know, a few years ago Snow had a motorcycle accident that, he claimed, woke him up to the insanity of liberal thought.
    He actually posted quite sensibly for a few weeks, lambasting all this idiotic liberal crab that passes MSM muster for compassion and common sense.
    --------
    I'm just wondering if, since then, he has had another MC accident that caused a relapse????
