Quotes of the day

posted at 8:01 pm on October 28, 2012 by Allahpundit

“This tragedy turned into a debacle and massive coverup or massive incompetence in Libya is having an effect on the voters because of their view of the commander in chief,” McCain said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “And it is now the worst coverup or incompetence that I have ever observed in my life.”…

“I don’t know if it’s either coverup or gross — the worst kind of incompetence, which doesn’t qualify the president as commander in chief,” McCain said…

“Somebody said to me the other day, ‘This is as bad as Watergate.’ Nobody died in Watergate,” McCain said.

***

Ohio senator Rob Portman talked on Fox News Sunday about a “shocking breakdown” with regard to the Obama administration’s response:

This is not about politics. This is about a huge national security issue that affects all of us and there was a shocking breakdown, operationally, not to have the security there in the first place. And then not to respond to these guys, in their pleas for help for 7 hours, during a firefight. It’s unbelievable and now, we are hearing that the president of the United States, based on his own words, issued a directive immediately after he found out about the firefight, saying that he wanted to be sure those people on the ground were safe and they were getting what they needed. It didn’t happen. This means either that the president’s order was not followed, which would be a breakdown in terms of the White House procedure, or, it means the order wasn’t issued. We need to find out about this, it is not about politics, it is a very serious situation. After the fact, of course, there’s also been a lot of confusion about what happened and why it happened.

***

It seems obvious that Panetta is trying protect Obama from responsibility for the Administration’s Benghazi response. I don’t think that works. The decision to outsource the call is still a presidential decision.

But there are two problems bigger problems with the Panetta doctrine. First, Panetta says they didn’t have real-time information. Uh, if having a live video feed and real-time reports from assets on the ground for hours doesn’t count as real time information, what does? And, if as rumors suggest, the drones monitoring the situation were armed, the idea that the administration was trying to avoid some kind of “black hawk down” situation seems incomprehensible.

Which brings us to the second, I think bigger, problem with the Panetta doctrine. If the circumstances in Libya didn’t meet the “enough information” threshold for a rescue attempt or some other form of intervention, then what does?

***

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 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.

So here are a few more questions for the White House: While President Obama was on the phone for an hour, did his national security advisor Tom Donilon or any other aide interrupt the call or slip him a piece of paper to inform him about what was happening in Benghazi? Or was President Obama out of the loop for at least an hour as events unfolded and decisions were made? On the other hand, national security staff were obviously with the president during and immediately after the phone call—otherwise how could they have put out their statement right away? Surely his aides told the president about what was happening in Benghazi. Was there then no discussion of what was or what wasn’t being done to help, pursuant to the president’s first directive that everything possible be done?

***

We know this much: What Barack Obama said is unambiguously false. Members of his administration have not provided information to the American people about Benghazi as they have received it. And in many instances, the opposite has been true. The Obama administration has used every means at its disposal to avoid sharing information about the Benghazi attacks—not only with the American people, but with Congress, too.

Sources tell The Weekly Standard that the administration is ignoring—or denying—routine requests for information from the congressional committees with oversight on national security. “I’ve never seen anything like this,” says one congressional Republican. “Basic questions—unanswered for literally weeks.”

One could argue that this is good news. An administration refusing to provide information about the attacks is an administration that isn’t providing misleading information about those attacks. And that’s what the American public got for the better part of four weeks.

***

“Why didn’t Governor Romney prosecute the case on Benghazi? Pat, and everybody else has been fulminating about it for the last two weeks. He wisely stayed away from that because it’s a pretty made-up story, frankly, and he’s going to leave that to surrogates,” Eleanor Clift said about the controversy surrounding the terror attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya…

“They’re trying to pretend that the White House was lying and covering up, which shows the complete ignorance of how intelligence is gathered and how government operates,” Clift said.

Later on in the show, Wallace put a similar question to Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA): “I can understand how it would be politically embarrassing for the administration if it turns out the drones were armed and weapons not fired when the U.S. americans were under attack for 7 hours, but I can’t understand how it would give up valuable intelligence. Can you tell me directly: were the drones armed or not that were flying over Benghazi?”

Warner offered no comment: “This member of the Senate Intelligence Committee is not going to make any comments on drones on the record, off-the-record or anywhere else.”

ted c on October 28, 2012 at 11:01 PM

Etymology

Biblical: Judas betraying Jesus with a kiss.
Noun

kiss of death

A kiss on the cheek that signifies the death of the receiver, as delivered by a mob boss or one with such influence.

Unfortunately for Geraldo, it actually means the 299th death of his journalistic career.

Having said all of that, I recommend that everyone prepare themselves for some very rosy Obama polls this week. I would expect to see Obama “coming back strong” in polls leading into the weekend and then some last minute adjustments by polling companies in their samples to reflect realistic turnout models.

To illuminate the BS involved in the polls involving my end of VA, I had a gentleman today knock on my door, in shirt sleeves, freezing, and practically beg me to let him take one of my Romney signs to give to his father.

After I made sure he wasn’t shinin’ me on, I of course gave him a couple and bid him well.

This is in the deepest ‘hollers’ of Democrat territory, where you vote Democrat ‘cuz your Daddy voted Democrat and his Daddy voted Democrat… and so forth.

This is unprecedented in this little part of the world, and it gives me hope.

The game will be epic. I actually fear more for Notre Dame. They have some sort of jinx on them when they play USC.

John the Libertarian on October 28, 2012 at 11:42 PM

Not this year me thinks. ND handled OU and USC is no OU this year.

No disrespect to any of our Canadian friends, but someone I know up in Alberta told me that it frightened a bunch of Moose and some geese, but that was about all it did.

SWalker on October 28, 2012 at 11:45 PM

Lot’s of firing folks going on in the next few days…public and private. A Lot Of Firing.

Which brings us to the second, I think bigger, problem with the Panetta doctrine. If the circumstances in Libya didn’t meet the “enough information” threshold for a rescue attempt or some other form of intervention, then what does?

This is the biggest problem, Cmdr in Chief did not act

The biggest mistake was the video. If it happened in a movie, people would say the movie sucked

They don’t pay POTUS to shoot down movies

This makes POTUS at best a sissy, at worse, a betrayer, at most, a fool

If POTie hadn’t pulled the phoney video stunt, he might have had a chance. The video schtick cannot be erased

He missed his chance to sacrifice some General. although he may well try. He stuck his foot in it demanding an investigation, as if he did not know with whom he consulted

wow. Drudge just redlined a Sandy update. Looks like the NWS is NOT taking any shizzat and instructing people to get the eff out if they’re told.

ted c on October 28, 2012 at 11:15 PM

I’m in central, coastal NJ. Earlier today it looked like the eye was going to pass over my house…now they’ve moved it a little further south again. Not sure that’s a good thing though.

So far it’s rainy and windy, just like an ordinary stormy night. This afternoon we had 8-10 foot waves and the water was coming up within 20 feet of the boardwalk, as well as flooded roadways near the inlet. Tomorrow night’s the big event. High tides tomorrow will be around 8am and again at 8pm, with the “eye” of the storm passing over around midnight.

I’ve seen ‘em live twice this year, and the speed is incredible. You are correct too. I do not think there has been one game this year that the starters have finished.

Difficultas_Est_Imperium on October 28, 2012 at 11:52 PM
