Panetta: President Never Called Me Night Ambassador Was Slain

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told senators on Thursday that President Barack Obama was absent the night U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in Libya on last Sept. 11.

This is called plausibility deniability



Under questioning by Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, at a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Panetta said that he had met with Obama at a pre-scheduled meeting at 5 p.m., The Weekly Standard reports.

The meeting was a pre-scheduled 30-minute session, Panetta testified. He testified that he and Obama spent about 20 minutes discussing the American embassy that was surrounded in Egypt and the situation that was just unfolding in Benghazi.

But, otherwise, Obama left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under attack in Benghazi, “up to us” — meaning Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, The Standard reports.

When Ayotte asked whether Obama had called to check on the status of events in Benghazi, Panetta said, “no, but we got information that the ambassador, his life had been lost, it went to the White House.”

The outgoing Defense Secretary said that he did not communicate with anyone at the White House on the night of Sept. 11.

“There was no follow-up from the White House?” Ayotte asked.

“No,” Panetta responded. Obama had never called to check in, he testified.

When Ayotte asked whether the president had checked on what resources were available and how fast could they have been sent to the consulate, Panetta said, “The biggest problem that night was that nobody knew what was going on there.”

He was too busy playing basketball with his shorter friends to worry about some fools gettin' killed in Ben Gazi waitin' for him to send air cover or boots on the ground to try and save them.  I'm sure the Ambassador knew what a loyal friend he was and that his own personal sacrifice was necessary for the accomplishment of the New World Order planned by der Fuhrer.

"Damn him, he never bothered to call my Aunt either after my Uncle Louie was killed by two female mud wrestlers."


I was not aware that your Aunt was Secretary of State,



Susan Rice, a foreign policy adviser to Senator Barack Obama, discusses the foreign policy credentials of both Democrats against the tableau of Mrs. Clinton’s 3 a.m. phone call advertisement about who would be best prepared for an international crisis. (While your children are safely asleep.)


“Clinton hasn’t had to answer the phone at three o’clock in the morning and yet she attacked Barack Obama for not being ready,” Ms. Rice said. “They’re both not ready to have that 3 a.m. phone call.”


It looks like we have a matching set now !!!!!!!
