Confirmed: Obama Made No Calls, Took No Action During Benghazi Attack

Feb 16, 2013 | Posted by: Jim R Pickens | Full story: townhall.com

Last week, Lindsey Graham's unrelenting line of questioning compelled Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to confirm under oath that not a single military asset was deployed to help rescue besieged US personnel in the course of a terrorist raid in Benghazi, Libya.

Proactive is different than reactive. With the ample warnings and requests, aid could have been sent to reduce or prevent the loss of life. Instead a hasty rescue mission got there too late and barely got the rest of the personnel out.

There were no requests for extra security in Benghazi. they were for tripoli. Ambassador Stevens knew the area better than any of our other assets in the region and he still decided to make the trip.

Benghazi embassy was attacked previously a few times very recently with activity increasing, a truck sized hole was blown open in the outside fence/wall in one of those attacks. So, no request at all was made for more security or Marines or anything? Wher do you get your vast all encompassing absolute knowledge? Did you get to interview one of the more than 30 survivors that no one else has been allowed to talk to? I have a lot of questions, and no one is giving any real answers or being held accountable. I smell cover up, big time.

In way did i do that. i clearly stated that he knew the instability of the region better than anyone else and he still decided to go to Benghazi. and he was well aware of the date.

obviously he didn't think it was unsafe, so you claims of "they should have known" just don't hold water.

Facts are fun!

For goodness sake someone impeach him. Have we all list our minds?
They did it to Nixon and Bill Clinton. It's obvious that someone is pulling the political reigns. So, who's responsible.

Hey all republican meatheads out there, this is what you need to REMEMBER today. Obama will be OUR president for 3 years and 9 and one half months. Now you can do all of the 67% of the voting population a favor, OVERDOSE,JUMP OFF A HIGH CLIFF, or run your car into a bridge at 70 miles an hour. It makes no difference to me, you are history for almost 4 more years. GET IT almost 4 more years. Let this play in your dumb brains all day today, while many of us will enjoy the day.

one would first need at least a teensy weensy shred of evidence of some impeachable offense.

and no, Nixon was not impeached.

perhaps you shouldn't talk about things you are too stupid to deal with?

Right, although he stepped down after finding out that was exactly what was about to happen to him. Much more honorable.

Impeachment is a prcocess like court-marshall. First a president is impeached then it is decided whether to remove him from office. Impeachment is not immediately putting him out.

perhaps you misunderstood the timeline giving by the military which included the OK from the White House..or more likely, you haven't bothered to learn about he issue you are talking about and just parrot shit you hear from whackjob media sources...
No, I studied that extensively and they did nothing. Stop trying to convince anyone different, we know the truth. Like Hillary says"Who cares" we have to not have faith or trust that Obama will protect anyone again.
