If this were happening during a Republican administration, you would hear nothing else but Benghazi, 24/7, in the mainstream media. Obama simply went on with his evening after his (already scheduled) meeting with his Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, and no one else heard anything from him til the next morning. He (Obama) simply left these people to die, then massively covered it up, from the top down, and the Democrats’ media let him get away with it.
Under direct questioning by Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Panetta admitted that he had no communication with President Obama after their “pre-scheduled” meeting at 5:00 p.m. EDT. The attack on the consulate had already been under way for 90 minutes at that time. Neither the president nor anyone else from the White House called afterwards to check what was happening; the Commander-in-Chief had left it “up to us,” said Panetta.
Panetta’s testimony directly contradicts President Obama’s own claim to have issued “three direectives” as soon as he learned “what was going on” in Benghazi. As he told a Denver reporter in October:
I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure we are securing our personnel and that we are doing whatever we need to. Number two, we are going to investigate exactly what happened and make sure it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice.
NOTE: As Mark Levin pointed out in last nights radio broadcast, the first ”clear directive” was a blatant lie, he did nothing. Two, any talk of investigation happens after the fact, not during a firefight, and three, same as number two, and no one has been brought to justice. The only person currently sitting in jail, is the hapless film producer of the anti-Islam film and he had nothing to do with the attack, regardless of the Obama administration continuously dumping it all on his shoulders for days on end after the fact.
