Obama Needs To Be A Man & Take Responsibility About Benghazi
- Obama's Weakness Killed Americans In Benghazi (Image: MGN)
- The House Committee released a report on the attacks in Benghazi, that shows that the Obama administration was at fault for the deaths in the attack.
- A meeting was called three hours into the attacks to discuss what the proper action should be.
- They had troops waiting for up to 18 hours for orders to deploy into Libya.
- The State Department continued to blame an anti-Islam video for the attacks when no evidence proves the theory.
The House Committee, the committee that has been investigating the Benghazi attacks, came out with a report today that has made President Obama and Hillary Clinton start to sweat.
In their report, they faulted the Obama administration for a handful of “missteps” not only during the Benghazi attacks but before and after them as well. Their investigation discovered that while top administration officials were wasting precious hours about their diplomatic and political public responses, soldiers were sitting and waiting for the order to deploy to Libya.
The words the House Committee used in their report were a “rusty bureaucratic process,” stating that the response time the night of the attack was anything but quickly dealt with. They found in their report that although orders to deploy had been given by President Obama as well as the then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, the military force did not move until 13 hours later. That raises some questions, doesn't it?
An anti-terrorism team that was on stand by the night of the attacks, known as the FAST unit, sat waiting for three hours in Rota, Spain. In their report, they said that one witness of the FAST unit said that they even changed “in and out of their uniforms four times.” Their report stated that it took nearly 18 hours for the team to move.
Apparently, a number of stops came from the State Department, which they claimed came from the necessity of Libya's approval for any deployment. However, Panetta came forward later and said that they approval from Libya was not necessary.
U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, foreign service officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALS Ty Wood and Glen Doherty, were dying while political heads in The States were figuring out the right course of action.
Are you ready for the best part of the report?
In the end, the security team that eventually came to help evacuate U.S. personnel and potentially ended up saving a number of other American lives was a team known as the Libyan Military Intelligence.
The Libyan Military Intelligence unit is composed of military officers that were formally under the regime of Qaddafi, just in case you didn't know the United States had thought that they had gotten rid of that regime. You can imagine the surprise that officials got when that team came to the rescue.
The United States had no idea that the group even existed. The report from the House Committee described it as, “In other words, some of the very individuals the United States had helped remove from power during the Libyan revolution were the only Libyans that came to the assistance of the United States on the night of the Benghazi attacks.”
This report, of course, put the Democratic party into a frenzy. The House Committee that investigated the attacks is ruled by the Republican party, so accusations of trying to slander Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign started flowing from the Democratic party very quickly.
Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., at a press conference with other GOP lawmakers, came out and claimed that no troops were ordered to Benghazi. He said that Americans should “read this report for themselves … and reach their own conclusions.”
Apparently, there were discussions that claimed that the attack on Benghazi was triggered by an anti-Islam YouTube video. Yet, no evidence has connected the video to the attack.
The State Department officials were so focused on the video, however, that in a meeting, that was identified for the first time by the House Committee, “five of the ten action items from the rough notes of the 7:30pm meeting mentioned the video.” The report said that the meeting took place three hours into the attacks.
The report also claimed that before orders were sent to deploy troops, calls were made to remove the video.
However, the report also had eyewitness testimonies from officials that were in the embassy in Benghazi, that knew nothing about any video or protest that was going on prior to the attack.
The report said, “None of the information coming directly from the agents on the ground in Benghazi during the attacks mentioned anything about a video or a protest. The firsthand accounts made their way to the office of the Secretary through multiple channels quickly.”
Yet five days later, Susan Rice, the then-United Nations Ambassador, went on talk show after talk show, to explain what happened in Benghazi. When she went on Fox News Sunday she said, “What sparked the recent violence was the airing on the Internet of a very hateful, very offensive video that has offended many people around the world.”
Read the REPORT and let us know what you think.
Benghazi is a which hunt. Unfortunately our embassys have been attacked in the past and will be attacked in the future. Anything Obama has tried to do in regards to funding the GOP says. ” how are you going to pay for it”. If he wouldnof requested more protection the same question would if been asked. This president has been attacked for taking his wife out to dinner on valentines day with remarks of you guessed it “why are we using tax dollars to protect him when he goes out to dinner”. The real current story is senate not being able to fund Zika diseases because GOP trying to add unrelated planned parenting defunding b
The Headline states a sad and valid truth. We elected someone (I voted against, but….)who has no understanding of what it truly is to be a man. We need real men to lead us. I am a woman. I was raised by a feminist to be one. I rebel! I have worked hard as a mom, a CPA, a wife, and under many other hats. No matter what the people want to say, I will never be a MAN. I am in the species of man. I can do many things, I recoil at some of what I must or may need to do. I am grateful for the eons of basic understanding of the differences. We need real men to do certain jobs. Be fathers, soldiers, leaders, etc. Some women may want to join them in these fields. More power to them. You’d better be able to keep up! See Margaret Thatcher for an example. Perhaps the BO that is in our house could read some history of REAL MEN to see how it is to be done. I believe that he prefers to read of destroyers who also did not understand what REAL MEN are ( Mao, Lenin, Hitler, etc.) A real man knows when and whom to fight. A real man honors the pledges and vows he makes. A real man works hard and plays hard. A real man does not import enemies while lying to everyone else. Shoot, a real man doesn’t lie. So, in essence your plea will be unanswered. He doesn’t know how to be a man.
He will never be a man and never has been a man. Not sure what he is and what the other one is, but the confusion over bathrooms might be a huge clue as to their identities.
Because he is commander and chief and will
never admit to his F&#K-Ups
Like mein Trumpf?
A. Any self respecting man takes responsibility for his actions, including ding mistakes.
This is sub human weakness in someone who assumes great power and responsibility:
“Never send a boy in to do a man’s job!
Obama is a liar.Has been and will always be a liar. 2008 and 2012 speeches exactly the same. He needs to removed from White House in chains and tried for Treason. Arrest US citizens for saying the words Islamic Terriorist in child rape case in Idaho, give me a break.This crap has got to stop !
Much gnashing of teeth over a report exonerating Hillary leads to a lot of shrill noise and nothing more.
Sure, a FAST team was ready in Spain. The consulate may as well been on Apollo 13. There is no way they could even drop in on parachutes in time to make a difference.
Complaining about trivial ideas like what triggered the attack while ignoring the mission that had Stevens et al in a hostile city depending on a local warlord for security shows intentions to bring Hillary down rather than a look at the real disgrace, Stevens’ mission to arm ISIS rebels in Syria.
Four Americans died that night, complainers ignore how Duhbya lost far more assets and staff from attacks on embassies during his tenure. Those attacks were even more disgraceful, then it was unpatriotic to condemn his regime. Why is it different now?
Now that oblidiot is (hopefully) going to be out of office soon he can lay the blame on himself and take the heat off of hilda and the clintwins. The outgoing islamic pres believes that we’ll buy this load and hil+bill will be exonerated. Don’t let this proven BSer con you into thinking that his was the gaff. Oh no, Hil has to bite the bullet on this herself.
Ambassador. Dictionary agreed that an E was appropriate for the word. Possibly they’re exceptable both ways.
OBAMA AND HILLARY ARE BOTH EQUALLY TO BLAME FOR BENGAZI EMBASSY AND THE DEATH/S DUE TO THE TERRORIST FIRST ATTACK, HILLARY IS MORE TO BLAME FOR INVADING LYBIA AND GETTING RID OF KADAPHY AND LEAVING THE COUNTRY IN CHAOS, ISIS STEPPED IN AND TOOK IT OVER AND AL OF LYBIA IS AT WAR. OBAMA AND HILLARY SHOULD BE ANSWERING TO A SPECIAL PROSECUTER.
Now that oblidiot should be out of office soon that we’ll believe his BS about Benghazi being his fault and take the blame off of hilda and the clintwins. The outgoing pres believes that the nation will buy his load of bull and hil+bill will be exonerated. Don’t let this proven liar con you into the belief that Benghazi was his mistake. Oh no, hil has to take the blame for her holding back the troops that would have saved our Embassador.
Great Information and agree that Obama needs to man up and so does Hillary.
Four Americans died needlessly because we have a commander in chief in the White House that refuses to call the enemy for what they are ” Islamic Muslim” killers. Some 18 hrs. lapsed before any help was deployed. Hillary Clinton is just as culpable as Obama. While the investigation does not supposely reveal any “smoking gun” tied directly to Hillary Clinton it was her responsibility to see that her employees received all of the help necessary to keep them safe. Our current justice system is rigged against the truth. Hillary lied to the family of the victims blaming the Benghazi attack on a cheap video then later recanted that story to her daughter. Our country is a critical state and now we have a candidate for POTUS that is a chronic liar and deceiver with a long history of suspcious activity
This was a planned premeditated cover up, decided upon scripted and put in motion as soon as the first reports arrived from Benghazi.
It is clear that both the President and Secretary of State are guilty of dereliction of duty for the sole purpose of maintaining political status to be used for their personal political gain (2012 & 2016 elections) and the advancement of their party.
It is also clear that not only was the cover up and maintaining their political currency more important than defending/coming to the aid of our people on the ground in Benghazi, it was politically expedient to let events unfold in Benghazi while the misdirection conceived and executed by high ranking officials gained traction. A conscious decision was made that coming to the aid of US personnel in Benghazi would not be in the best interests of the Administration.
In effect, they were sacrificed for the careers of Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton.
As a Nation, we should be outraged. Even those Americans who drink the Koolaid and refuse to listen to the facts should be ashamed.
he needs to be impeached and arrested for treason all the overreach giving guns to the drug lords he is out of control he does not care about we the people impeach now
He will never man up. I define him as dung…no intelligence, no morals and no benefactors. However, he does leave a stench and needs to be flushed down the toilet.
Obama is responsible for building and arming ISIS. That’s why he can never say the 2 words Islamic terrorist (or jihadist). How many terrorists has he set free from Guantánamo Bay? 10? 15? 20? Or more? Where are they all now? Well, I believe they’re either killing American soldiers or planning some atrocity against Americans.
It is clear this was a coverup but who will do anything about it the republicans on a whole is supporting O & H if they dont do anything about this other then the report findings
