The following facts are among the many new revelations in Part I:
Despite President Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s clear orders to deploy military assets, nothing was sent to Benghazi, and nothing was en route to Libya at the time the last two Americans were killed almost 8 hours after the attacks began. [pg. 141]
With Ambassador Stevens missing, the White House convened a roughly two-hour meeting at 7:30 PM, which resulted in action items focused on a YouTube video, and others containing the phrases “if any deployment is made,” and “Libya must agree to any deployment,” and “[w]ill not deploy until order comes to go to either Tripoli or Benghazi.” [pg. 115]
The Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff typically would have participated in the White House meeting, but did not attend because he went home to host a dinner party for foreign dignitaries. [pg. 107]
Here is the timeline:
Sept 11, 2012 was the attack at Benghazi US Consulate.
9 days later….
Sept 20, 2012: Obama in Univision TV interview says it was the video
14 days later…
Sept 25: Obama on ABC’s The View and says it was the video.
No one in his right mind thought it was the video – even on September 11, 2012 when the attack happened.
