from LA Times: ...."Panetta learned of the attack shortly after it began, about 4:30 p.m Eastern time"...
Now wait a second. Obama spent nearly two weeks trashing a nobody and blaming Christian based islamaphobia for causing a riot. Are you saying Panetta
DIDN"T tell him of the attack? Or are you saying he KNEW, but LIED, while SCAPEGOATING an odd and insensitive, but completely legal, use of free
speech? resulting in the arrest of an innocent man? and bolstering the case for censoring the internet?
Or if BHO did know at that time, how long did he hesitate before issuing orders to respond? And who did he order? The military? The CIA? State dept?
Gen Hamm, commander of AFRICOM, says he never received such orders, and mysteriously decided hes going to retire early. Fighters could have arrived in
an hour. Even if not used, no one thought of having them on station just in case? A reaction force would have arrived from Italy within hours, but yet
never did? This not enough intel doesn't fly. Precision ordnance can be landed within yards of the target. And BHO sure doesn't seem too concerned
with collateral damage anywhere else with his drone wars. Why the sudden concern when American lives are in direct jeopardy? No one said a rescue team
had to repel onto the roof in the middle of the fight. Did they at least secure the facility the next day after the fight was clearly over? Apparently
not if CNN was wandering around finding sensitive documents just strewn about.
And your defense of what happened now hangs on wether someone ORDERED those two SEALS to try and stop an armed force of 100 +/- men by themselves.
Which is it? They ordered them not to go, or they ordered them to commit suicide? What they did has no any bearing on the administrations
RESPONSIBILITY as commander and chief. What, the CIA called up the white house and said "don't sweat it Barry, its under control, we've got TWO
guys on this", and he went to bed?
Did BHO know or not? Did he issue orders to respond, and to who? If he did, why did the military apparently do absolutely nothing? The answers to this
are looking ever more ominous.
My guess. Stevens was there trying to hide Obamas Fast and Furious middle east addition, and maybe help open their new syrian branch. In fact I'll go
one conspiracy further. I say BHOs people knew, or strongly suspected, an attack was coming and did nothing to stop it, expecting a jimmy carter
moment that the great world healer could play out for the election. When it actually blew up in their faces, BHO was more concerned about how it would
play in the media then saving lives. Bush spent fifteen minutes on 911 and he s still being drug through the mud. BHO goes to Vegas fundraising while
the building was still smoldering, before anyone knows if it was part of a larger ongoing plot, then spent two weeks LYING about what happened and
scapegoating other people. No problem, free pass. The whole story of the movie appears to have intelligence fingerprints all over it. It sat for
months on the internet, then days before the attack, it gets translated into arabic and worldwide riots errupt? Even now, BHOs giving vague and
conflicting answers, and everyone involved, or should have been involved, is playing musical chairs and pointing fingers.
This hole you're trying to save BHO from is just getting deeper.
