    The WH refuses to release photos taken during the attack on Benghazi the way they did during the Bin Laden raid.

    Notice the difference between the two events. One Obama took credit for and the other he refuses to accept blame. Instead he hide behind Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton.


    Where was Obama?

    Panetta defends military response in Libya attack
    7 Jan.`13 - WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Thursday that the speed of the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, kept U.S. armed forces from responding in time to save the four Americans who were killed as the Pentagon chief defended the military's response on a chaotic Sept. 11 day.

    Well else did you expect from Mr. Voting Present? When just being Present is the requirement, he turns into Mr. Not Being There.

    Obama was in the situation room for hours trying to figure out who to blame on the republican side.

    Obama spends all of his time telling us how to live. He forgets his number one job is to protect us. That means he needs to be engaged when we're under attack. We don't need a president that is ether asleep at the switch or disappearss at the slightest sign of trouble.

    Trust me. If the Bin Laden raid had gone bad he would have acted the same way he did with Benghazi.

    I don't know where he was and I am not sure if it matters now, remember; "what difference does it make senator!!!!!!"



    this however is problematic;

    SEN. GRAHAM: Are you surprised that the president of the United States never called you, Secretary Panetta, and say, ‘how’s it going?’

    SEC. PANETTA: I — you know, normally in these situations –

    SEN. GRAHAM: Did he know the level of threat that –

    SEC. PANETTA: Let — well, let me finish the answer. We were deploying the forces. He knew we were deploying the forces. He was being kept updated –

    SEN. GRAHAM: Well, I hate to interrupt you, but I got limited time. We didn’t deploy any forces. Did you call him back — wait a minute –

    SEC. PANETTA: No, but the event — the event was over by the time we got –

    SEN. GRAHAM: Mr. Secretary, you didn’t know how long the attack would last. Did you ever call him and say, Mr. President, it looks like we don’t have anything to get there anytime soon?

    SEC. PANETTA: The event was over before we could move any assets.

    SEN. GRAHAM: It lasted almost eight hours. And my question to you is during that eight-hour period, did the president show any curiosity about how’s this going, what kind of assets do you have helping these people? Did he ever make that phone call?

    SEC. PANETTA: Look, there is no question in my mind that the president of the United States was concerned about American lives and, frankly, all of us were concerned about American lives.

    SEN. GRAHAM: With all due respect, I don’t believe that’s a credible statement if he never called and asked you, are we helping these people; what’s happening to them? We have a second round, and we’ll take it up then.
    __________________________________________________________


    so, were they moving assets or not? 8 hours is not enough time to fly a super sonic jet 500 miles?did he call them? what was the frequency of communications? was he on his way to Las Vegas already for his campaign stop?
