Shouldn’t surprise anyone that’s been paying attention. But it has now been confirmed that Obama was MIA on the night of Sept. 11, 2012. At 5 p. m., the president had one brief, perfunctory meeting with Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who informed him that our Benghazi consulate was under attack. According to Panetta’s testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Feb. 7, Obama basically kissed him off with this line: “Do whatever you need to do to be able to protect our people there.” It was the last Panetta heard from him that night.
“Do whatever?” When it came to specifics, said Panetta, “He just left that up to us.”
So, in response to the president’s alleged broad order to “protect our people,” what did the Secretary of Defense actually do? Panetta admitted that during the eight-hour terrorist attack, not one U.S. plane was deployed to Benghazi from anywhere in the world; no soldier was en route; and neither the president nor Secretary of State Hillary Clinton followed up with him in a single phone call.
For her testimony, Hillary (who will run for president in 2016) gave a performance for the ages. When questioned why the administration blamed the attack on a You Tube video, Mrs. Clinton went ballistic. She pounded the table, threw up her hands, and bellowed, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
If there was ever a phrase that captured the governing philosophy of the Obama Regime — and of liberalism in general — this howl by Hillary Clinton is it. In just a few words, we get it all: imperious fury at being questioned, hubris, sneering indignation, preening moral superiority, and refusal to take responsibility for the absolute ruin they created.
On Feb. 14, Obama brazenly claimed that, “Congress is sort of running out of things to ask” on Benghazi. You haven’t honestly answered a single question! All your corrupt Regime jackbooted thugs do is lie, obfuscate and cover up. (Oh, and don’t forget, Marco Rubio sips water.)
It finally hit me that Barack Obama will never be held accountable for anything. That will become history’s judgment: President Alibi.
Benghazi clearly shows Obama is unqualified and utterly inept, a non-leader, a danger to our country. Surely there is some corner of hell, dark and hot, reserved for him and his intellectual miscreants. The sooner they get there the safer we will all be.
