Why in the hell won't any members of Congress start making some statements?

What the hell is going on?

re: New documents found in Benghazi consulate; O not participating in investigaton


There really is no excuse why these people weren't contacted and consulted. It's their job.

WHY WEREN'T THEY BROUGHT IN? Why are Leon Panetta and Barack Obama making this call? "Isolated at the highest level of the executive branch" I wonder who that would be referring to?

This gets worse everyday, but it still won't bring back the two lives that were lost because of plain negligence and lack of desire to make a tough (but what they are there for) call to put more military personnel in danger to aide those already in harms way. But it was the decision that needed to be made.

If Obama would have sent people in there to rescue all those at the CIA compound and gotten them out safely, and it was his call, I absolutely would have supported him 100% and that would show what a leader and a president he is. Two Americans would have still been killed, but we would have done the best we could reacting to a terrorist attack.

As it stands now, we've lost two lives which SHOULD have been saved.

Utterly despicable.

Obama not participating in investigation:



Transparency. It's as synonymous to the Obama white house as is civility.

1st Excuse will be: In order for us to trigger the team we must know it was a terrorist attack. The CIA said it was because of the film and therefore we didn't trigger the team. Had we of known sooner it was a terrorist attack I would of triggered said team. I can't even believe you would think I screwed up. How dare you question the President of the United States.


I can't make this shite up...Chris Mathews is now focusing on a elevator that Romney had roped off while he was governor at the governors mansion.

From your link
quote:

Absent coordination from Counterterrorism Security Group, a senior US counterterrorism official says the response to the crisis became more confused. The official says the FBI received a call during the attack representing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and requesting agents be deployed. But he and his colleagues agreed the agents "would not make any difference without security and other enablers to get them in the country and synch their efforts with military and diplomatic efforts to maximize their success."

Another senior counter terrorism official says a hostage rescue team was alternately asked to get ready and then stand down throughout the night, as officials seemed unable to make up their minds.

A third potential responder from a counter-terror force stationed in Europe says components of AFICOM -- the military's Africa Command based in Stuttgart, Germany -- were working on course of action during the assault. But no plan was put to use.

"Forces were positioned after the fact but not much good to those that needed it," the military source told CBS News.

"The response process was isolated at the most senior level," says an official referring to top officials in the executive branch. "My fellow counterterrorism professionals and I (were) not consulted."

The official says a protocol set forth in a classified presidential directive calls for the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) to be convened in the event of a possible terrorist attack. According to a public military document, the directive was designed to "synchronize the efforts of all the government agencies that have a role to play in the Global War on Terrorism."

The Administration also didn't call on the only interagency, on-call, short notice team poised to respond to terrorist incidents worldwide: the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST). FEST's seasoned experts leave within four hours of notification and can provide "the fastest assistance possible."

FEST Teams deployed immediately after al Qaeda bombings of US embassies in East Africa in 1998, and the USS Cole in 2000, but were not used for Benghazi, to the chagrin of some insiders. It's likely that the CSG task force, if contacted, would have recommended FEST aid.


All these assets and more, never deployed or implemented, while the Administration blundered around like rats in a maze. No attempt to follow protocol whatsoever. No attempt to save Americans under attack. And none of this even addresses the denied requests for additional security before the attack.

It's becoming pretty clear why the admin decided to try and spin this as not being terrorism.

The mix of ineptness, audacity, and arrogance of this administration is unprecedented and disgusting.

Fine excuse, right?

I never believed the video excuse. I thought the problem was the sheer incompetence of Obama and his appointees. The more information that comes out, though, it's becoming reasonable to think aid might have been purposely withheld, either to protect the illusion of Obama's success in the Middle East and against Al Quaeda on the eve of the election, or because he (they) decided it was better to lose a few people at the consulate (mission) than to send in a force and lose more in battle.
