Dereliction of Duty..........

Sen. Lindsey Graham vowed Friday to hold President Obama "accountable" for his leadership on Benghazi, after the top two Defense Department leaders testified that they had just one conversation with Obama during the course of the Sept. 11 terror attack.

During testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said they spoke with Obama at 5 p.m. ET on Sept. 11 last year. They were both on the same call, and said it lasted about 30 minutes.

Dempsey said they did not speak again until the attack was over.

Graham, who had demanded that Panetta testify on Libya as a condition for allowing the nomination of Chuck Hagel to proceed, aggressively questioned both witnesses on the president's actions.

Graham wrote on his Twitter account Friday: "President Obama has to account for his leadership on #Benghazi and I intend it hold him accountable."

He said Thursday on Fox News that "thus far the White House has delayed, denied, deceived and stonewalled and this has to come to an end. He has to account for his leadership."

During the hearing, Graham questioned why there weren't subsequent follow-up conversations with the president.

"It lasted almost eight hours ... did the president show any curiosity?" Graham asked.

Panetta said there was "no question" Obama "was concerned about American lives."

"With all due respect," Graham responded, "I don't believe that's a credible statement if he never called and asked you,'are we helping these people?'"

Dancing on it, oh no, is that how Hillary fell down and could come before congress for 5 months.

This is in the congressional record, and proves Obama cared nothing about Stevens or the three others. He went to bed and woke up with everyone dead, but didn't care enough to even ask the department heads what went on or if anyone did anything.

No wooddick, we do NOT know what happened and by all appearances it was extremely inept at the least. And this is the second day in a row of your constant posting on non-gay threads that nobody agrees with, nor cares about. It is NOT our fault you moved to one of the most God forsaken parts of the entire U.S. and are bored off your ass. Go scrape some ice off the roof or something, you're wasting time on here as usual.

According to Penetta he, and General Dempsey spoke with Obama for 15 minutes, and did not confer with Him again during the 7 1/2 hours Our Ambassador was being sodomized, tortured and murdered on 9-11 in Benghazi. Nor did he bother to speak to Secy. Clinton. We have a government where no one is in charge. Now all those Americans are dead. Who the hell is in charge of this insane asylum?

Actually, smoke inhalation was the cause of death, sodomdy is forbidden under both Islamic and Sharia law, and you can't really torture a dead man, but hey, whatever gets you 'there' late at night is really none of my business....

If you really want to get all bunched up, Google what Stevens' parents said about their son's death being used for partisan political fodder.
