    10 Questions President Obama Can Answer Himself

    by directorblue @ Doug Ross @ Journal: NO INVESTIGATION NECESSARY: 10 Questions President Obama Can Answer Himself

    I'm not much of a fan of the Weekly Standard or its editor Bill Kristol, but his Ten Questions for the White House is getting a lot of play -- and rightfully so: should be possible to answer these simple questions as to what the president did that afternoon and evening, and when he did it, simply by consulting White House meeting and phone records, and asking the president for his recollections.

    1.) To whom did the president give the first of his "three very clear directives"—that is, "make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to?"

    2.) How did he transmit this directive to the military and other agencies?

    3.) During the time when Americans were under attack, did the president convene a formal or informal meeting of his national security council? Did the president go to the situation room?

    4.) During this time, with which members of the national security team did the president speak directly?

    5.) Did Obama speak by phone or teleconference with the combatant commanders who would have sent assistance to the men under attack?

    6.) Did he speak with CIA director David Petraeus?

    7.) Was the president made aware of the repeated requests for assistance from the men under attack? When and by whom?

    8.) Did he issue any directives in response to these requests?

    9.) Did the president refuse to authorize an armed drone strike on the attackers?

    10.) Did the president refuse to authorize a AC-130 or MC-130 to enter Libyan airspace during the attack?

    THE WEEKLY STANDARD has asked the White House these questions, and awaits a response.

    As an aside, wouldn't it be great if we had a functioning antique media?

    Why are you so obsessed with the deaths of four recent Americans in Libya, when thousands of people have died and continue to die as the result of unjust worldwide wars instigated by the US and NATO gang?

    Perhaps things would be different were we to consider the lives of people in their homelands as worthy of preservation. NO?
