Obama Cracks Joke When Asked About Four Dead Americans In Benghazi

by Larry O'Connor

When Steve Kroft of CBS News finally got around to asking President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton about the terrorist attacks in Benghazi resulting in the death of four brave Americans, President Obama decided it would be a good time to go for laughs.

You know, I remember Bob Gates, you know, first thing he said to me, I think maybe first week or two that I was there and we were meeting in the Oval Office and he, obviously, been through seven presidents or something. And he says, "Mr. President, one thing I can guarantee you is that at this moment, somewhere, somehow, somebody in the federal government is screwing up." (Laughter)

It's disgusting to write-off the complete and total failure in Benghazi as nothing more than "someone in the federal government screwing up," it's even more enraging to do so in such a casual and flip way that is meant to engender laughter.

Four Americans are dead. They died while they fought off al-Qaeda terrorists whom President Obama assured us were "on the run" thanks to his leadership. They died waiting for help that never came.

It isn't funny, Mr. President.
You're right, somebody in the federal government screwed up.
You just don't realize who it was.

The sh^tstain has to change the subject away from his being double crossed. His fellow jihadis were supposed to just kidnap the ambassador and obama would bargain and Stevens and the blind sheik would be released. Instead, the jihadis buttraped Stevens while they murdered him. Now if obama didn't laugh he'd sport a massive woodie and that would 'out' him. So, laugh it up, up, and away.

In my mind, Morsi was in on it with him and, most likely, Hillary. The 'hostage' release would be just before the election.
He was doing badly in the campaign. Romney looked more and more like he was going to defeat him.
And why, since this video trailer had been out there since June or before, did it all fall in the Muslim's laps on 9-11-11? Too many coincidences.

Same think when he said 'turns out those shovel ready jobs weren't so 'shovel ready'...and laughed. I felt like slapping him.

But as Hillary would say, "What difference does it make?"

“Paper Or Plastic?”

His remark certainly, wasn't funny, but sadly it was true.
