Decatur you just get a call that says your son was murdered oversees last night. You ask if the President did he all he could to prevent it You are told.

No. The President or DoD followed the proper DoD protocol and didn't check in until the next day.

You say: Oh, well. He followed protocol. What a wonderful man.


You'd say that, right?

What precisely is the DoD protocol for how to handle a scenario of an ambassador being murdered while 2 former Navy Seals are trying to hold off attacking terrorists for 3-4 hours, with the president being briefed in the middle of the scenario?

Can you provide examples of the President or DoD FOLLOWING the proper protocol to IGNORE an ongoing assault and murder of U. S. citizens on U. S. soil abroad?

I don't think it is a case of providing an example of when protocols were not followed, in the military they are referred to as standard ooperating procedures. This is a case where it is necessary to show that SOP was followed and that SOP was adequate. Sort of a glorified after action report to review performance.

What alerts were put out when the facility was attacked? What are the SOPs for military bases, and other U.S. facilities, in the region when alerts are received? The military takes responding to alerts with extreme seriousness, so everyone up the chain of command knows which units were ready to perform any assigned missions. And the military has plans to respond to just about any contingency the operations officers can imagine, it's what they get paid to do.

A Defense Department timeline says that Panetta and Dempsey had been informed of the terrorist attack in Benghazi at 4:32 p.m--28 minutes before they went into their meeting with Obama. At today's hearing, Panetta said he informed Obama of the attack when they entered their 5:00 p.m. meeting. That was one hour and 18 minutes after the attack started and while it was ongoing.


I'm having a hard time understanding how this in an indictment of Obama.

Decatur you are absolutely right, it is not a scandal. It is totallly and I say treasonously a failure of a President to act in his role of Commander in Chief while the US(note to dumbasses in Decatur US soveriegn soil) was being attacked by now admitted terrorist(that took a couple of months). WTF was your boy doing during this event? Don't have an answer? Niether does anyone else, and some people want to know the what and why, while you are happy to remain ignorant as hell. Why was a General in the region removed from his command during the attack?

Imagine the Obama team in office when Pearl Harbor was attacked? FDR would have been tar and feathered if he spoke one time with his principle advisors on December 7, 1941. And I don't think his address to the American people would have tried to blame some anti-Japanese propaganda for triggering the attack while "trying to determine what actually happened". And there is no way the Secretary of State would have said "What difference does it make?" why the United States was caught completely by surprise.

I realize the scope of events are not the same. However, incompetence and/or negligence should not be tolerated just because the damage is relatively minor. Americans should be demanding accountability, and this is especially true of Democrats in Congress who should be getting tested on putting partisanship ahead of national interests.

I am sure you raised hell or still do when speaking of Bush sitting at that school during the other 9/11 attack.

Do you dispute this?
