the night of Benghazi? I think he was getting some side action at the time of the attack. Maybe that is why they are so worried about Benghazi bc they don't want that to come. What is your guess.
Read conservative news, blogs and opinion about Attack, Barack Obama, Benghazi, Terror and White House from The Weekly Standard, the must read magazine available in online edition.
My son's message to Obama, Clemson, and Georgia
He and Mitch McConnell were robo-tripping and listening to Dr. Dre's the Chronic.
Obama is a disaster, but we have a lazy ass weak soft sissy country so we get this ass clown for a president.
We have some real boners on this board.
Well, why do they not want anyone to know where he was when the attack occurred. That is my real question.
Probably because it is a irrelevant fact.
Why does it matter?
He was showing Hillary a box of cigars?
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
God, please be yes. That would make living worth it all on its own, watching that play out. (knows it didn't happen)
He was playing dominoes in the Rose Garden with Samuel L Jackson, Lionel Ritchie and Snoop Dogg
Maybe they don't want you to know because its none of your damn business!!
Pretty much just summed up the problem with our Government. It is our business, it's OUR Government.
He is the president. Every President for that last 5 or so have had their agenda's very public so you knew where he was at almost all times. Why will they not say where he was bc we have a right to know when the consulate was under attack for as long as it was. He spoke only once to his National security chief but no one else. Why is what I think we are entitled to know.
He works for us, far too many on this board and in this country look at him as a ruler, a king, etc. Our constitution makes it clear he and the congress work for the people and are accountable to the citizens.
The consulate being attacked is on American soil, the building full of American citizens, the same as if the secretary of state's office in D.C. were under attack. That is the way foreign embassy's work---they are on American soil, with Americans working inside.
If they are under attack with rocket propelled grenades, explosions going off everywhere for hours upon hours, our citizens being shot, mamed and killed, you do everything you can as a president to get help to them---he controls the military. When the attack started, we had absolutely no idea how long it would last, yet we say "assistance could not have gotten there on time?" Are you kidding.
Again, it's just like an attack on a diplomat or congressman here in the United States, they were attacking Americans on United States soil. You send help. You sure as hell would send assistance if it were happening in D.C. and and you do the same in another country when it is U.S. land. We all know now that military was less than 2 hours away, and was prepared to take off and go help their fellow citizens at the Embassy, and they were given the order to stand down. Why? A few of our citizens went against orders and headed to Tripoli anyway, trying to help their fellow citizens, yet they had no help and were killed....at least they tried, by they had no backup.
Our adminstration should feel horrible and be completely embarrassed letting Americans die and we did not even attempt to send assistance. Embarrassing.
They are our people, Americans, you don't know how long the attack is going to last. Send help. I don't care where he was, I do care that he did not care enough to order jets full of marines head that way when he heard there was another attack on American soil.
+1 well said. It has been pretty convenient for liberals to brush off the response -- or lack thereof -- and say "help would not have arrived on time anyway." As if anyone had any idea how long the attack would last...
This guy is a real American, +1 my American brother
Why do you guys keep exaggerating the length of time that the attacks took place? The attack lasted like 2 hours. It started at 9:40pm, and the second attack on a separate building ended at around 1:00 am. This has all been confirmed in the Congressional Hearings.
If the embassy was under attack for 12 hours, would the President refuse to send help? Do you guys realize how silly that sounds? Would Obama not realize the political disaster that would cause?
2 people were killed in the attack on the "consulate" after they escaped to a "safe room" and the CIA sent in a team to rescue and secure the perimeter within an hour.
Why does everyone pretend that nobody went in to help the "consulate"? The CIA sent a team in.
2 hours after the initial attack, there was an attack on a CIA annex that was successfully defended by CIA operatives. 2 Americans were killed by a mortar round on a rooftop. Not sure how Delta Force comes in and prevents mortar rounds from being fired 300 yards away within 15 minutes of securing a perimeter. Everyone is just making assumptions based on assumptions and hindsight.
Whats the point of asking where the President was, when people distort the facts on the ground to make it sound like Obama had 12 hours to make a decision?
What about the 13 attacks on US embassies since 2001 that have killed 50 Americans? Why is Benghazi so much worse?
Why send in the military, which takes several hours to prep, when the CIA was able to kill 100 attackers and get the situation under control without throwing more fuel into the fire?
What if the military was sent in and their helicopters were shot down by RPGs. How pissed off would FoxNews be if 40 dead US soldiers were being dragged around the street in addition to Ambassador Stevens?
Why should Obama have to explain anything to people that are so gullible and simple and insist on believing all the stupid shit they read or hear from right-wing media bubble?
Let me know when you boners solve this. I'm grilling salmon.
He was on the golf course. Much like the old dude on caddy shack , he too was having the round of his life and couldn't be bothered by such trivial things.
It was under attack for 7 hours.
Dick turd, that is what you are. BC he is the President. His IRS was caught targeting his political opponents. His DOJ was caught seizing records from the Press. Finally, he, himself... "Captain You Can't Touch Me Because I Am Better Than You" lied about the Benghazi deal because maybe he would have lost that free house and free private jet and $4 MILLION DOLLAR VACATIONS in an election.
He lied. That is why he has to answer for this shit.
He was shooting hoops.
