CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: It's clear the ambassador himself who was slain is the one who was really begging for more security. Everybody understands it was rated as a facility that was extremely insecure. That's one element.
The other element is at the time of the attack, what happened? And I would ask another question, where was the commander in chief in all of this? The one man who can authorize and order troops to move above everybody and instantly is commander in chief. Where was he for these hours when the fight was raging? Has anybody asked it? Has anybody answered that?

Commander in Chief was in bed sleeping. Probably after a tough day of golfing and throwing White House parties.
A little over a month after the September 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi, that left four Americans dead, then CIA Director David Petraeus denied that the CIA issued any type of stand down orders to those requesting to assist in Benghazi, leaving only one person that could have given such an order. This came as it was revealed that there were people on the ground with targets painted and air support overhead and the strike was called off. Even former House Speaker Newt Gingrich claimed that that it was rumored that emails from the National Security Adviser’s office told a counterterrorism group to sand down (by the way, this would be part of the reason for the piece yesterday on Ben Rhodes). Now Breitbart is reporting that a source with intimate information about what took place on the ground in Benghazi on the night the U.S. Consulate and the CIA annex was attacked by terrorists is confirming that only the President of the United States, or someone acting on his authority, could have prevented Special Forces from helping the Americans who were under assault.

so the obama administration outright lied, maked up a story, hid the facts, americains died and the obama administration got caught, red handed, hand in the cookie jar, pants down
didnt obama even give a tv speach about the 'protest' in lybia and how it was due to some fabled movie?!?
And that is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, where a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. Now, I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. It is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well.
There are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. There is no video that justifies an attack on an embassy.

So the State Dept. outsourced consulate security to al-Qaeda-backed agency, and sent our wounded/dead ambassador to an al-Qaeda -backed hospital.
How is this possible? I thought Hillary was supposed to be the smartest woman whom ever lived.
