Richard Milhous Obama is finding out what the wheels on the bus look like from down under, as CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus has tossed him under his own bus (Weekly Standard, via Sister Toldjah).
Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”
So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?
Obama's lapdog media has ignored the story, but one Denver TV station tried to press him on these troubling revelations that came out today, and he did his best to evade the questions (9News.com).
KYLE CLARK: Were the Americans under attack at the consulate in Benghazi Libya denied requests for help during that attack? And is it fair to tell Americans that what happened is under investigation and we'll all find out after the election?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, the election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened. These are folks who served under me who I had sent to some very dangerous places. Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do. But we want to make sure we get it right, particularly because I have made a commitment to the families impacted as well as to the American people, we're going to bring those folks to justice. So, we're going to gather all the facts, find out exactly what happened, and make sure that it doesn't happen again but we're also going to make sure that we bring to justice those who carried out these attacks.
KYLE CLARK: Were they denied requests for help during the attack?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we are finding out exactly what happened. I can tell you, as I've said over the last couple of months since this happened, the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, we're going to investigate exactly what happened so that it doesn't happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice. And I guarantee you that everyone in the state department, our military, the CIA, you name it, had number one priority making sure that people were safe. These were our folks and we're going to find out exactly what happened, but what we're also going to do it make sure that we are identifying those who carried out these terrible attacks.
Oh yes, this election has a lot to do with four Americans who were killed. It is a barometer to decide if the person who is Commander in Chief is willing to act in the best interests of those who serve under them, or are they willing to act only on political motives.
I'm mean, look, we have a "President" who won't face the American people and come clean on some very damning revelations, especially when one American is in a jail cell as a whipping boy of this President for creating a silly YouTube video. All this President does is go on every other celebrity show where they fawn all over him and attend one fundraiser after another.
When he's not doing that, he's attacking his GOP opponent, Mitt Romney, with more fervor than he is the scum who killed our people in Benghazi, as he did today, which Sarah Rumph at Sunshine State Sarah notes.
Think about this...four Americans were killed on the anniversary of the attack on our homeland, the President did nothing, and yet this jerk takes childish pot shots at Romney and questions his foreign policy as "lackluster?" Give me a f--ing break! He's spent the last year spiking the football as "President Gutsy Call" over killing bin Laden, and yet when he had the chance to make a REAL gutsy call to save the lives of those at Benghazi, he voted "Present."
Wow. Mitt Romney, sitting on a chair wearing a dunce cap, with the caption, "Sums it up." I'm surprised they didn't just say he was a "stupidhead" or a "poo-poo-face" or any of the other creative little insults that six year olds are so talented at creating.
If you click on the image on the Tumblr page, it takes you to another page with the image again and the following text:
Romney’s foreign policy record is extraordinarily lack-luster; America needs to work in specifics, not generalities. We cannot trust his heavy hand in dealing with nuances of international diplomacy.Ah, yes, the nuances.
Gutsy-call my ass!
