According to Associated Press reports, President Obama spent part of the day on the golf course, but cut his round short to return to the White House for a meeting where he and top national security aides reviewed final preparations for the raid.

According to the Washington Times, when Mr. Obama finished his golf game, he held a national-security briefing after he returned to the White House at 2:04 p.m. At 3:30 p.m., U.S. forces landed helicopters inside bin Ladenís compound, the terrorist resisted the assault force and a firefight ensued.

So by your timeline, Obama washed his hands of the matter at 5 o'clock in the afternoon.
Where was Obama?
So, you think he never monitored the situation & never received updates through his advisors & staff???

Panetta said he did.

The President was scheduled to golf the day when it was decided to do the raid. If he canceled, the press would wonder what was up so he went ahead but returned immediately prior to the attack.
You right whiners are so pathetic.
That post is a lie.

There is no "press" on your side. They are he Ministry of propaganda. They no longer have any resemblance to the "press".

You left liars are so pathetic, especially the exceedingly dumb ones like you.

Bushís 9/11 coverup?

Family members of victims of the terror attacks say the White House has smothered every attempt to get to the bottom of the outrageous intelligence failures that took place on its watch.

ABC News reports that law enforcement officials have collected "mounting evidence" connecting the Boston bombing suspects to a 2011 triple murder.

As the Atlantic reports, the 2011 killing in question involved Brandon Mess, "a friend and former roommate of Tamerlan Tsarnaev,[who] was murdered along with two other men in Mess's apartment in Waltham, Mass., one town over from Watertown, where Dzhokhar was captured, and two towns over from Cambridge, where the Tsarnaevs most recently lived."

The victims in the unsolved case had their "throats slashed" and "their bodies covered in seven pounds of marijuana," according to The Atlantic.

I didn't say what time he went to bed.

But he had to have gone to bed eventually, right? Since no one knows where he was the rest of the evening and he wasn't in contact with anyone.

Newly released emails are raising additional questions about the Obama administration's story-line on the Benghazi attack, showing top-level efforts to downplay terrorism ahead of public statements by UN Ambassador Susan Rice.

Benghazi: Fox News' distraction

If you havenít yet seen ďWag the Dog,Ē go watch it right now. Iíll wait. And donít worry, this article isnít actually about Benghazi, but something that really matters.

The movie is about how the art of manipulation is used by the media to distract people from events of actual importance. It was cited regularly when the GOP had their Clinton witch hunt. The GOPís latest witch hunt over Benghazi is simply more wagging of the dog. Fox News is trying really, really hard to make it into Obamaís Watergate to keep us all distracted from some incredibly populist moves in the Senate.

Will Fox Correct The Record On The GOP's False Benghazi E-mail Claims?

The New York Times, however, obtained a copy of the e-mail in question and reported that the phrase conservatives are putting in the mouth of the State Department official -- "Islamic terrorists" - is in fact not used to describe the perpetrators of the attack. Rather, the official describes the perpetrators as having ties to "Islamic extremists" -- a distinction with a difference, according to the Times report:

[A] copy of the e-mail reviewed by The New York Times indicates that A. Elizabeth Jones, the senior State Department official who wrote it, referred to "Islamic extremists," not terrorists.

The distinction is important, administration officials said, because while the White House did not initially characterize the attack as terrorism, senior officials, including Ambassador Susan E. Rice, acknowledged the possibility that extremists had been involved in the assault.

Fox News is no stranger to carrying water for the Republican Party, and the network has led the charge to push Benghazi cover-up conspiracies. But now that the latest GOP line on Benghazi has been exposed, will Fox inform its viewers?

Obama lies two weeks before Benghazi:

Al-Qaeda is on the run and Bin Laden is dead!

Mission accomplished!

How wonderful Obama followed the French into Libya!

Reality and happening today:

The U.S. military has alerted two elite military units in Europe to be on standby if needed to respond to a deteriorating security situation in Tripoli, Fox News has learned.

Eman said that Obama was on the golf course "during" the raid and that was a lie. I don't get the need to lie__particularly when most of the posters her know it's a lie.

I guess if that's all one has__one would be better off over on the game threads.

This is what really got me about Carney's tap dance this afternoon.

He tried on several occasions to get the heat off himself and this administration by eluding to Republicans "politicizing" Benghazi.

I was literally willing someone in the media to ask, "Wasn't it this administration who politicized Benghazi?"

Unfortunately, they didn't Sure wish I had been there as part of the press.
