Providing Cover For A Feckless Barack Obama

Obama Middle East Policy SC Providing Cover for a feckless Barack Obama

Now the finger-pointing begins over who is going to take the blame for the Administration’s inaction after the murder of four Americans in Benghazi. The six-plus hour attack was being monitored by a UAV gathering intelligence and streaming it back home via live video stream. The line that the military couldn’t be dispatched because of the lack of intelligence is no excuse. If not, what was the drone doing? Flying airshow maneuvers?  Leaked State Department emails exposed the fact that they knew when the attack began, how many attackers, and by who. In a sporting analogy, somebody dropped the ball.

State Department

The State Department knew that the consulate was under attack; and two hours into the attack, they briefed State Department Officials and the White House on who attacked the facility.  They knew that it was the Libyan militant group Ansar al-Sharia. When she accepted this job, Hillary Clinton intended to serve 4 years but no more. Instead of taking the fall for this fiasco, she now plans to stay at State for another four years.  Hillary will most likely have the last word with the panel she set up to investigate the Benghazi attack.  She and the President will most likely blame the liberal’s favorite target: the military and intelligence agencies.

DOD

To excuse his inaction, Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta told reporters  he couldn’t deploy forces into harm’s way without real-time information.  Mr. Panetta, there was a UAV overhead during the assault, maybe a few other assets also; and as a former Army Intelligence officer, he should know that. He pointed out that there was a great deal of confusion in the area; and by the time American Special Forces arrived in the area, the assault was over. That begs the question: when were the orders sent to deploy the troops?

Mr. Panetta criticized various Congressional Republicans for armchair quarterbacking. General Martin (Future Wal-Mart greeter) Dempsey urged people to shut-up and wait for the State Department report concerning the incident. Review of the attack is being conducted to develop an understanding of what happened. This is beltway lingo for “Don’t blame us.”

Fail

It’s everyone else’s fault. Unlike Democrats of old, the buck never stops at Barack Obama’s desk. All of this finger-pointing is an attempt to provide cover for an inept President during an election year. Despite the best spin of talking heads, the historians will associate the Benghazi murders with this Administration.

FOUR MORE YEARS OF HIM WILL MAKE US A THIRD WORLD NATION, BE PROUD AMERICANS LEAVE HIS SIDE.

    • Awesome comment and I am African American. I have distanced myself from this dictator Obama but sadly too many other African Americans don't educate themselves to know the truth!

  4. The bottom-line on November 6th is:

    Obama = Tyranny
    Romney = Liberty

  5. I'm waiting on them to blame bush!!LOL!! Everything else has been his fault,why not this?

  6. Edwardkoziol says:

    I can't believe why every news media with the exception of Fox wants to protect Obugmes half black ass.If this was Bush people like Matthews,Madcow,Lauer,Anderson and Sawyer would be yelling crucify him.

    • How can you defend Bush while attacking Obama? Oh right… because you listen to Fox news. Try this unbiased source of information: factcheck.org/

      It might help you to shift your anger toward the media that allows for the mass-distribution of lies.

      • Edwardkoziol says:

        Tiny Tim you really must be kidding but liberal socialist like you could never see how this media is on the Obutthole ticket.I don't need fact check which is most likely a liberal fact checking outfit but I do remember anything that happened it was Bush who did it.When the Iraq war started Bush had congress approve and now you only hear that Bush did it on his own.Take Katrina Bush was blamed for that even though that coon Nagin and that cracker Gov.Landrieu didn't do anything to help the people of New Orleans.Go to your fact check and see if they blamed Bush.Obugme gets 4 american citizens in Benghazi killed without helping them.Timmy the press has Odildo wearing a halo instead of a towel around his head or a table cloth

  7. It's obvious why you have these negative opinions about our President. You get all of your news from a single source, and an onslaught of dishonest campaigns. For a quick dose of hard honesty, check this out: http://www.moveon.org/r?r=283771&id=56295-240
    Don't be such a sheep. Make your own opinions. Use facts, not out-of-context quotes.

  8. Matthew 5.43: "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven"

    BeholdEmmanuel, I'm guessing you believe that YOUR religion belongs in OUR laws, so let's not forget this one:
    Mark 12.19: "Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother."

    Oh yeah, and also divorce and interracial marriage should be illegal, right?

  9. Matthew 5:43 "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven."

    It's really sad that most of the comments on this website are just hateful bitoted remarks based upon false representations of the President. Really closes down the opportunity for discussion.
