Skip to comments.Petraeus Throws Obama Under the Bus
Posted on 10/26/2012 3:20:35 PM PDT by Snuph
Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.
So who in the government did tell anybody not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.
It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and whyand based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversationsdid President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?

Answers these questions if accurate.
This is escalating to the Oval Office by the minute.
Circular firing squad forming. Screw all of them.
Thanks for the link, good combo. I heard the show today but was unable to post the time.
It’s gets a lot more ugly from here.

Atta boy Obie! Go out and play now. Ya hea? Okay pa.
I was listening to this story unfold today on Rush - with some special ops guy who called in to the show.
My blood was boiling to think they left these guys for dead.
Obama needs to be impeached for treason.
Tonight the leading story on the network news will be Frankenstorm, except for Fox.
There isn’t time for impeachment. We need to get him and his ilk as far away from the WH as possible on Nov. 6th - then hold hearings and indict them for treason.
Every now and then when I listen to talk radio, there are really some emotional, amazing moments. That call took my breath away and made me weep for the father and others who have yet to get the answers they need.
Patraeus is as GUILTY as OBAMA, HILLARY, PANETTA and CHARLENE LAMB!!! They WATCHED AND DID NOTHING!!! NOTHING!!!! COWARDS!!!!<P.PLUS Patraeus came out and said it was the VIDEO!!!!!!! He was willing to throw someone to the wolves other than himself and his bosses!! i hate these people!!
The go/no go comes from Obama
I am sure other idiots all assented
ANYONE and EVERYONE WORKING FOR OBAMA IS SCUM!!!!!!!<P.WHY did Betrayus take the job working for OBAMA???? Because he’s a DEMOCRAT SKANK!!!!
Petraeus is a coward. He knows exactly what happened and won’t tell us. His kibuki dance is another form of dishonesty. Again, he abandons the men fighting for their lives.
Yep, it's crumbling all around the liars.
It has all the hallmarks of a really, really big scandal.
And I'm not seeing a damn thing about it on the network news.
Or maybe he was waiting for an opportunity which has suddenly presented itself.
Not quite what O6ret called for in the below thread but it’s a step in the right direction.
We need Buckhead or a Buckhead post!
Ann, if Petreas didn’t get the call, then he didn’t get the call.
Check out this thread concerning a call in to the Rush Limbaugh show. Perhaps you’ve seen it. If it’s true Petreas is merely explaining who made the command decision.
That doesn’t seem to be out of line to me.
Go/no go maybe. But he said it was the video. And he knew men were in a desperate fight for their lives and “assented” to simply let them die.
Petraeus could have walked out the next day and told the world what happened. He is more loyal to secrecy and the administration, than he is to the constitution and the people of this republic.
ONLY NOW they put out a limp statement like this?
WHY wait till WH telling us BOGUS STORY version #452?
It would have been completely pointless to engage in a debate with Barack Obama over this issue when all of this additional damning information is now coming out about it.
Art imitating life, or history repeating itself?
If you’ve seen “Argo”, this sounds remarkably like the White House reaction to the final escape plan for the 6 Americans holed up at the Canadian Embassy.
If you HAVEN’T seen “Argo”, please do so before voting, as a reminder of what happened to us the last time we had such an ineffective man inhabiting the Oval Office! Admittedly somewhat overdramatized, and we all know where Ben Affleck’s politics lie, but he didn’t muck with the basics of the story, thank goodness!
The Marxist needed his sleep for the fund raiser the next day.
Throw him out!
OBAMABOTS.... GET OUT AND VOTE TODAY LIKE OBAMA did yesterday as we need to get as many votes as we can. When the crap hits the fan nobody will vote for me....Cries Obama.
In other words, a polical hack, like Colin Powell.
If the “video” lie cover story would have worked, Petraeus would have never said a word.
So, Betrayus sat there and let his own people get murdered? I don’t think so. He’s guilty and everyone up the line is guilty. The GOP is guilty because they handed the presidency to a lying islamic four years ago. The SCOTUS is guilty because, as Thomas admits, they are “evading” the issue. All of D.C. is quilty of murder.
Because the CIA is being blamed for not giving the okay to send in support. The CIA is merely directing people to the guy who was making the decisions.
People who are and have stepped forward are at risk of their lives.
The whole dem leadership is currupt and some are flatout souless. Probably most of them deserve nothing less than a public hanging?
“Or maybe he was waiting for an opportunity which has suddenly presented itself.”
Bullcrap. He was party to those men being abandoned. He had an opportunity right then and the next day. That pussy would have never said a word if the “video riot” cover story would have flown.
It looks like even once-conservative leaders like Petraeus are going to be required collateral damage in this unnecessary, treasonous disaster.
So be it if the life of our Country requires it.
NO WONDER the early vote was so important this year. Evidently there won’t be an election day vote for Obie!
ALL of these scumbags will have the same fate as Eric Holder; They’ll ALL keep their jobs and 0bama will skate, compliments of the 0bamamedia.
Amen. But the "republicans" will just play "nice," as usual.
And the press will continue to ignore it. Unless conservative channels bring the pressure, no one will hear this. I want to know why REPUBLICANS are not talking out loud about this???? WHY???
I can’t wait to see the movie that’s made about Benghazi. A conservative patriot in Hollywood needs to make it so the American people can see how Zero left those guys to die. Once they see faces behind the names and get to know them via the actors, they would be even more angry over their needless deaths and Zero’s abandonment. Whenever I think about their last moments on earth, waiting for the cavalry that never came, my blood boils even more!
Obama crashing and burning.
“People who are and have stepped forward are at risk of their lives.”
They worry about their careers, not their lives. But even if their life were at risk and they remain silent, that means two obvious things;
a) our government is murderous and despotic, and will murder a citizen for telling the truth to the people.
b) the silent ones rate THEIR lives as more precious than those SEALs who ran towards the sound of battle no matter the cost.
Is the toilet starting to back up?
Why would someone who Hillary publicly called BeTrayus be in this administration in any capacity. WINDOW DRESSING AND POSSIBLY FUTURE FALL GUT!
