Obama: I’m offended that people would accuse me of not being forthcoming about Benghazi

posted at 8:42 pm on October 29, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Breitbart.com, he’s pulling the same move here that he pulled on Romney at the second debate, deflecting criticism by suggesting that somehow he’s the victim because people found the White House’s “acts of terror”/Mohammed movie protest vacillations suspicious. But okay: If he’s as forthcoming as he says, he has two new chances to prove it. First, how about answering Bing West’s question? If, as he claimed on Friday, he really did issue an order to secure American personnel in Benghazi, show us the order.

The SecDef and the president have issued contradictory explanations. Either Mr. Obama ordered the Secretary of Defense to “do whatever we need to do,” or he didn’t. And either the secretary obeyed that order, or he didn’t. And he didn’t.

It is also not clear whether the SecDef countermanded the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, who is the direct military adviser to the president. Did the president as commander-in-chief issue an unequivocal order that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs received but chose not to execute? Or did the chairman reply that he would do nothing?…

Surely it is in the president’s best interests to release a copy of his order, which the military would have sent to hundreds in the chain of command. And if the president did not direct the NSC “to do whatever we need to do,” then who was in charge? When the American ambassador is attacked and remains out of American hands for over seven hours as a battle rages — and our military sends no aid — either the crisis-response system inside the White House is incompetent, or top officials are covering up.

Either way, someone needs to be fired. Tell us who, then do it. Or if it turns out O lied and didn’t issue any directive, tell us that and we’ll do it eight days from now. Second, since day one of this nightmare (actually, even before day one), there’s been circumstantial evidence that the jihadis who attacked the consulate might have have had help on the inside. I’ve never heard of it being addressed at length by the White House or State, maybe because they’re still in fact-gathering mode or maybe because they’d prefer not to gather certain facts about some of our friends in the new Libya we helped create conspiring in the murder of a U.S. ambassador. But let’s have the White House speak up about it either way, now that we have Newsweek raising the question too:

In the dimly-lit street, he told his men the Americans would sit inside the pick-ups and they would all have to climb up on the flatbeds. It was about 4 a.m. As they did so, a small-caliber single shot rang out. Febrayir froze; so did his men. Within seconds there was a whooshing sound of several rocket-propelled grenades being fired. Then a mortar hit the annex roof with startling accuracy, killing former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. The accuracy of the mortar round points to an experienced hand. “But then we have many fighters nowadays who fought in the rebellion and who are experienced with mortars,” Febrayir says.

“Before we even showed up they were there waiting,” Febrayir says. He remains convinced that the security for the rescue was compromised and that attackers were not only eavesdropping on radio chatter but were fed by someone from inside the operations room. He never found out who was exactly in the Chevys. They sped off—as did the two Libyan Shield cars. He never saw them again.

Go read Joel Pollak to find out which of our five top Sunday morning “news” shows pursued either of these questions yesterday.

You give them too much credit. Under no circumstance is having your ambassador kidnapped good politically. That whole scenario is too risky. Obama is simply a coward.

Why do we have to dance around this man’s guilt? He can put up or shut up. He reminds me of my son at 12- if you are indignant enough at the accusation, you MUST be innocent. It seems all Obama has to do is claim to be offended, and everyone backs off; well not me, if you’re so damn offended Mr. President, show us your proof that you did the right thing. You can’t do that, can you?

Someone needs to press for the release of the Situation Room photos that night, lets see who was there. If, as I suspect, there is an empty chair where the Preezy sits, we will know all we need about the decision making process. This whole thing stinks to high heaven, and the more they don’t talk about it, the more questions are raised.

wytshus on October 29, 2012 at 8:59 PM

They probably shot those photos today and will release as more heat is on them (from Fox News only of course). Today is the most time he has spent at the White House since he took off to Vegas on 9/12.

No shyt, Sherlock. My point is that, when the Bob Woodward of Watergate fame calls for a Special Prosecutor, a scandal has officially reached a significant point and while the MSM may not be running with it, they are talking about it and know that it is serious enough to do serious — maybe fatal — damage to Obama.

Well, I’m offended that he breathes the air, drinks the water, and walks on the same planet as that of the heroes (and others) he left for dead in Benghazi to protect his own ass.

I would trade my soul tonight to know he would not serve another day in office and that he would ultimately join me where that deal would put me as well, ablaze in hell.

He arrived at the White House at 4:45PM from the 9/11 memorial ceremony…

If a rescue mission was underway…
1 hour flight from our nearest base to Benghazi..

Then the rescue team was there…
Then there was nothing but American’s blood flowing in the streets..

Who called off the mission this close? This far into it?
Who would have done this?

“Backdraft” quote.

JPeterman on October 29, 2012 at 9:24 PM

He did not sign the order.

Our assets could only be staged with out the order in writing.

All he did was state the commanders concept of the operation. This is only the first part of the order.

This is how it is done and has been done since paper was invented. This is to minimize confusion and keep everyone working together. This is carried all the way down the chain of command. His staff then was to put the concept into writing, have him sign it and distribute the signed order.

He went to bed but his staff instead of writing up the order for the President to sign,,,They went to bed.
Everyone else in this could do nothing but wait for the written orders that never came.

In the military “STAND DOWN” also means to wait.

Neither he nor his staff have shown that they have the basic understanding of their.
Why after 7 hours he never followed up or questioned why nothing was being down.

No he is at fault he killed those people with his lack of basic job just as if he pulled the trigger.

Why were repeated requests for increased security refused?

Why was the ambassador given orders to move to the less secure Benghazi area on the anniversary of 9/11?

Why were 3 calls for help refused?

Why did Obama go to bed knowing the ambassador’s life was in jeopardy?

Why did the White House and State Department pretend for weeks that this was a spontaneous uprising related to a Youtube video?

Was Stevens personally some type of direct threat to the Obama administration which led to this series of events?

It doesn’t even have to go that far – if he knew of the ‘situation’ in the room, he should have done something to help those people.

But even worse, it could be that he ordered people to not take action.

There must be a pretty hefty paper trail that follows him around – answering questions about the orders he gave or the actions he took or didn’t take should be heavily documented and easily accessed.

But as usual, they are stonewalling facts they should know off the top of their heads – why are they doing that?

After four years of incompetence on so many levels, how do they not even ask?

We must prop up the first black president at any cost. They cannot watch him fail, to do so would reflect failure upon themselves.

Ty Woods’ father on Hannity right now.

I hope he gets the truth…and soon.

People with empathy and a conscious cannot lie like that.

Communists are not burdened by such petty things… we who faced these animals know that for a fact.

Oh, le pauvre petit, il ne suscite rien d’ autre que des larmes :)..

And if people question whether or not Obama is telling the truth, then perhaps that’s because there are now 3+ years of proven lies told by him that were caught on videotape and transcript—not hearsay, but proven lies.

There is just no way around it. Thirty some Americans were left to be murdered. The mightiest military ever on Earth and no one lifted a pinky finger to help them except the two former Navy Seals who died while saving most of the rest of the Americans.

THIS

Being offended isn’t a basis of sound leadership. Your offense,
your personal affront, doesn’t move me. In fact, you can kiss my ass.

Paul-Cincy on October 29, 2012 at 8:49 PM

It is not about you, Barack
It is not about how you feel.
Again, It.Is.Not.About.How.You.Feel
We know how narcisissts react and it is how you reacted.
You do not have an iota of leadership in you if you react like this, in public to a tragedy that you caused and/or made so much worse due to your lack of leadership.
I personally don’t care whose ass you kiss, just as long as you are gone next week.

Wow Ty woods dad just totally made a plea in the camera

Everytime President George W. Bush passed gas…

… Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and a gaggle of Democrats held a press conference that lead the news for a week.

I cannot imagine why every single GOP member of Congress is not forcing this issue on the American public…

“Who ordered the “Stand Down!”, Mr. President…

… Who ordered the “Stand Down!”?

I think I know why the trolls disappeared.

cozmo on October 29, 2012 at 9:21 PM

You know, I wondered why I had gotten to page #8 of the comments on Best of the Web and had yet to hear from any troll berating Taranto for their misreading his column. It’s amazing, usually, somebody mentions that he dropped out of college by page 3 at least!

Too late
