Panetta : Obama Talked to Them Only Once as Benghazi Terror attack unfolded


quote:

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.


Pathetic

Lead from behind beeotches!

Panetta said that Obama left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under siege, "up to us."

In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Panetta said that, save their 5 o'clock prescheduled meeting with the president the day of September 11, Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that day. There were no calls about what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.

A reader writes in:
This guy drops the fricking hammer.

I've been struck over the past few days over the extent to which statements from Defense Department officials, whether on the record or on background, have holes in their logic so wide that one could drive a truck through them. Take, for example, this quote from a 'senior defense official' on Foxnews.com this morning:

"While some may think that armed drones could have made a difference in Benghazi, that's altogether unclear," a senior defense official tells Fox News. "You need good intelligence to drive the use of armed drones. It's not like you can just send hellfire missiles into a relatively crowded area when you don't know precisely where the enemy is."

Gee, if only there had been, say, a former Navy SEAL on the roof of the building under attack, using a laser range finder to communicate to higher headquarters precise map coordinates (which, if he had standard-issue gear, would be accurate to within one meter) of the enemy positions! And even if that had not been the case, there is always the option of using fixed wing jets to perform what is called a 'show of force:' a low-altitude high-speed pass meant to intimidate the enemy and indicate the presence of American airpower over the battlefield. Due to tight rules of engagement, this tactic is employed virtually every single day in Afghanistan (and likely much more frequently than that.)

Another example is Secretary Panetta's infamous attempt at writing military doctrine with his statements to the press:
"The basic principle is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on; without having some real-time information about what's taking place, and as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation."

This remark seemed to clash with something I had read before. And indeed, one can find in Marine Corps Doctrinal Publication 1: Warfighting the following passage on pages 86 and 87:

"We must have the moral courage to make tough decisions in the face of uncertainty--and to accept full responsibility for those decisions--when the natural inclination would be to postpone the decision pending more complete information. To delay action in an emergency because of incomplete information shows a lack of moral courage. We do not want to make rash decisions, but we must not squander opportunities while trying to gain more information. Finally, since all decisions must be made in the face of uncertainty and since every situation is unique, there is no perfect solution to any battlefield problem. Therefore, we should not agonize over one."

Surely this doctrine has been developed and maintained with the approval of the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

Please say something comes out that contradicts Hillary's testimony so that she can be tried for lying under oath

What was the name of the latest highest ranking military that said something on Benghazi. I believe it was,the other day?

Was it Dempsey? Look for that name to join the list of sudden retirees.

did she say anything about talking to Obama that day?
quote:

Testimony: Pres & Secy Clinton didn't speak during Benghazi attacks. Neither did they speak to Def Secy Panetta overnight.

You guys wouldn't be satisfied if Obama had been piloting an AC-130 himself.

Get over this already. It's not the scandal you think it is or want it to be.

I was just typing this very same thing and saw your reply. Is Decatur a paid cyber warrior or just hypnotized stupid?

So you have no problem with the POTUS being informed an hour and a half after an attack on U.S. soil begins, has a 30min meeting with DOD then doesn't check on the situation until the next day? If "W" did that. I bet you'd have a different view. right?

If you'd like to provide specific examples of the President or DoD not following the proper DoD protocol, then please proceed.

So Obama didn't talk to anyone and apparently another idiot named Clinton was absent from the event. WTF?

Neither the secretary of defense nor the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke to the secretary of state during the 8-hour attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. At a Thursday hearing in the Senate, Republican Ted Cruz asked both Leon Panetta and Martin Dempsey, "In between 9:42 p.m., Benghazi time, when the first attacks started, and 5:15 am, when Mr. Doherty and Mr. Woods lost their lives, what converations did either of you have with Secretary Clinton?"

"We did not have any conversations with Secretary Clinton," Panetta responded.

"And General Dempsey, the same is true for you?" Cruz asked. Dempsey confirmed this.
