Barack Obama refuses to say when he knew about the Benghazi attack or who he told to protect the personnel that were there
When Mitt Romney tried to pressure Barack Obama during the second debate on Benghazi–before Candy Crowley interfered and saved the president–Barack Obama made the claim that the minute he learned about the attack he issued a directive to do whatever it took to secure all our personnel in Benghazi.
This is a claim he repeated last Friday during an interview on Denver television:
“I can tell you, as I’ve said over the last couple of months since this happened, the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives.
“Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to,” Obama continued.
“Number two, we’re going to investigate exactly what happened so that it doesn’t happen again.
Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice”
In light of that recent interview CNSNews sent the White House a letter asking some questions including: When did the president learn about the attack? Who did he tell to secure our personnel in Benghazi? Did he watch the event in real time as has been reported, and if he didn’t watch it what was he doing instead?
Of course we know that Barack Obama WAS watching the attack in real time and we know that people on the ground in Benghazi asked for backup three times and were denied, but it would have been nice to hear the president take responsibility for once but needless to say this letter went unanswered.
CNSNews then contacted the White House looking for answers, and oddly enough, they were told to contact Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. So CNSNews contacted the Barack Obama campaign and of course they have not had an answer.
This leads me to conclude that either Barack Obama issued a directive to somebody and it was ignored, and if that is the case that person should already have resigned or been fired, or Barack Obama never issued a directive and is lying to the American people, and if that is the case the American people should fire Barack Obama next Tuesday. The fact that nobody has resigned, and the fact that Barack Obama hasn’t fired the person who ignored his directive, is proof to me that the latter is the case.
Barack Obama has not come clean with the American people about what happened in Benghazi and he can hide behind an investigation all he wants to but the bottom line here is that Barack Obama must be hiding something or he would have already set the record straight and held the proper people accountable. His silence on this issue is quite damning indeed.
