Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey met with President Obama, the secretary explained to lawmakers.<quoted text>That's a fkn lie Carol__why is it necessary for you to lie? Is your political position that weak? Threatened?
Obama ordered that the Defense Department respond to the attack and try to protect U.S. personnel.
Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina asked how many times President Obama talked with Panetta and Dempsey after he knew about the attack.
Once, they answered. That conversation lasted for 30 minutes and Obama did not personally get back in touch with them to ask how the mission to help personnel in Benghazi was going.
So why don't you just zip it?
