Obama refuses to answer questions about who gave the order to stand down during Benghazi attack
We already knew the liberal press sold their soul to get Obama elected. How else does a man with no real experience and limited legislative experience go from Community Organizer to President in a decade? He is the least vetted President in history and arguably, the worst. So, with their souls already spent, what currency would the press use to get Obama re-elected? The lives of four Americans. This administration is guilty of a dereliction of duty in Benghazi and the press ignored it this weekend.
My Friends, it is up to YOU to help get the truth out and shame them into covering this scandal.
To recap, there were a string of State Department emails from Chris Stevens himself detailing the rise of Al Qaeda, the risk in Benghazi and requests for added security. These were ignored. The families of the murdered servicemen were promised the guilty party would be brought to justice – you know, the guy that made the video. Obama wants to pretend he called this a terror attack, but he did not. To this day, he talks about bringing the ‘folks’ responsible to justice. Not terrorists, not Al Qaeda – Folks. This is what has been admitted. The true cover up is much worse.
There are reports the CIA, Dept of Defense and White House watched the 7 hour battle in real time via feed from a predator drone. In the articles and video links included, ex-military brass detail the protocol that would have been followed when an American embassy is attacked. In no way is it plausible the President was unaware. Orders to act, or as it turns out to not act – would come from him. This is where he is parsing words and lying to the American people.
The only way assistance could have come to the Navy Seals on the ground requesting fire support would be if it was ordered to. The CIA is on record saying they did not order anyone to stand down. The White House is on record as saying they didn’t order anyone to stand down. That means it was the military that gave the order. Several problems with that.
First, predator drones don’t just materialize over airspace. Someone either suspected ahead of time, or deployed in real time a drone to monitor the situation. This alone blows so many holes in the horse crap story the White House is spewing I don’t know where to start. If a drone with a camera could cover the scene for 6 hours, a drone with weapons certainly could have been deployed. The special forces on standby in Italy would have made it in time as well.
Second, when pressed by a local Denver reporter, the President went on record saying; “The minute I found out what was happening . . . I gave the directive,” he said, “to make sure we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to do. I guarantee you everybody in the CIA and military knew the number-one priority was making sure our people are safe.” This is either a flat out lie, or someone in the military disobeyed a direct order from the President of the United States. Unless you really believe a drone filming the scene is doing everything we can to secure our personnel.
Finally, I fully believe this President refused to take action. By not ordering a strike, by not ordering support, by not authorizing the assistance being requested – he voted “Present” at a time American soil and American lives were under attack. Voting “present” in the Illinois and US Senate allow a community organizer to be elected to office with no record to defend. As Commander-in-Chief, voting ‘present’ is the exact same as ordering “Stand Down”. The best part – it is so easy for the Administration to prove me wrong. Release the drone video, audio tapes and paper trail of orders issued. If I am wrong – I will write my apology to the President on this page. After six weeks of cover up and altering their story, I doubt I am wrong. He can parse words all he wants, but the stark reality is the US had assets within an hour of the scene that could have turned the tide and he did NOTHING. Worse, he watched and did nothing. Then he went to bed so he could be rested for his west coast fundraising swing thru Vegas.
The great irony – had the Navy Seals in the annex obeyed orders to stand down, more American lives would have been lost. They ran towards the gun fire, into harms way. The administration did not display the same courage. This is the man we elected President? This is the man seeking another four years in office. You have a choice. Will you also vote ‘present’? Not me, I am all in for Mitt.

“You don’t just passively allow Americans to remain under attack for eight hours at a time when you have forces within range and do nothing. The Secretary of Defense was in the White House at five o’clock within an hour of when the attacks started. He could have told him, “Yes. We have special operations peope and F18 aircraft that could be deployed right away. To have known what he had available, to have known that Americans were under fire, and to have done nothing, is dereliction of duty that I have never seen in a Commander in Chief from a president of any party. Outrageous.”
