Skip to comments.Obama takes 'offense' on some Benghazi accusations
Posted on 10/29/2012 6:24:09 AM PDT by maggief
President Obama fired back at critics who have accused his administration of orchestrating a cover up over the September attacks in Libya.
I do take offense with some suggestion that in any way, we havent tried to make sure that the American people knew as the information was coming in what we believed," Obama told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" in an interview that aired Monday.
If we find out we that there was a big breakdown, and somebody didnt do their job, theyll be held accountable, Obama said.
Ultimately, as commander-in-chief, Im responsible, and I dont shy away from that responsibility. My number one responsibility is to go after the folks who did this, and were going to make sure we get them, Obama said.

Obama Gets Nothing But Softballs From Morning Joe’s Scarborough and Brzezinski
Spewing lies right up until the end. At least he’s consistent.
I’m offended by his continued presence in the White House.
“My number one responsibility is to go after the folks who did this”
He’s going to sue them.
Hurricane Benghazi - send to your email list(s)
God Bless Our Troops by giving them a new CIC on Nov. 6!!
Ultimately, as commander-in-chief, Im responsible,...First time he didn’t lie.
My number one responsibility is to.......
to get re-elected and screw any American who gets in your way
Barry is a whiner. A prima donna who can’t take criticism.
NO, that's number three, or four or five. Your number one responsibility was to provide adequate security based on local situation at each embassy, then to respond to specific requests from the ambassador concerning increased threats, and then to provide military assistance after the terrorist attack began.
And who knows what other warning signals should have been heeded before the terrorist attack? But Obama was only interested in pretending that his interference in Libya had been a great success, and that things were now peaceful and stable.
I can’t even begin to list the ways that Obomba offends me.
If we find out we that there was a big breakdown...”
An American ambassador and CIA operatives were ruthlessly murdered by heavily armed terrorists at an American facility on 9/11. And nothing was done.
To suggest that there MIGHT have been a breakdown is offensive to the American people. This was a diplomatic and security debacle of the highest order that exposes the vulnerabilities of the rest of our diplomatic posts.
Obama “takes offence”while brave Americans took “direct fire”.
I “take offense” that Obama was happy to sacrifice 41 lives just so he and Michelle Antoinette could retain their private party jet for four more years. Yeah; that offends me. In the end, only four died, but he was happy with the “41” number.
But here’s one for a start:
Using the word “folks” to describe bloodthirsty Muslim terrorists.
Ultimately, as commander-in-chief, Im responsible,...First time he didnt lie.
But he didn’t mean it either. He’ll never take responsibility for anything that isn’t a positive for him. He’s a pathological narcissist.
I can't stand the PO(TU)S.
Well, people that you were supposed to protect are DEAD so take your offended and shove it up your @$$ you Muzzie motherjammer!
(Sorry, I get upset over wanton killing of SEALS by their commanders.)
If our nation allows this to pass without bringing Obama to justice then we truly are just another worthless nation of sheep.
Ultimately, as commander-in-chief, Im responsible, and I dont shy away from that responsibility.
It sounds like Obama is going to have to "be responsible" and "hold himself accountable."
Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty and Sean Smith were unavailable for comment.
Calling moozlum terrorists “folks” is the equivalent of police referring to a murderer as a “gentleman”. What a complete feckless anti-American idiot this thing is. nobama needs more time on his prayer rug apparently.
Anything that can be done which "offends" you, I support 100%.
If we find out we that there was a big breakdown, and somebody didnt do their job, theyll be held accountable...
That's what we're counting on, come election day.
No, your number one responsibility was to give them military support when the attack was occurring, and you went to Vegas instead.
No. Your responsibility is to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and our nations vital interests. The Benghazi terrorist assault proves your reelection trumps this duty. Treason.
Gotta agree with you there. And at the top of the Worthless List would be the Republicans in the US Congress. We have given them laws that enable them to do something about presidents like Obama, but they are gutless.
Liars should be offended by our responses to their lies.
Otherwise, we are condoning their behavior.
Is anyone else tired of this man referring to bloodthirsty enemies of ours as “folks?”
You jerk obama, you called four Americans a “bump in the road” You partied they died.. Get the heck out of the
Peoples House, remember WE THE PEOPLE OWN THIS COUNTRY.
Obama “takes” defense, GIVES offense.
Benedict Barry’s offended? Poor baby... talk to the families of the four dead Americans about being offended.
Obama is “offended”, how ironic.
We take offense that an American hero was killed by mortar fire, while painting the mortar position with a laser ahead of air support that was denied.
I think there’s a line, “when you strike at a king, you must kill him”. Unless Romney removes him next week we’ll never get the real story on this. All of Obama’s subjects will cover for him till he loses power. Even then, Republicans will probably let him go quietly. So I prepare myself for disappointment.
He should have been on offense in Libya.
HE is OFFENDED? What a POS....he is an OFFENSE to Freedom around the world. Wonder how offended he will be after Nov 6th????
Already wounded, having battled for his life and the lives of others for 7 hours and having been denied reinforcements on several occasions, did Ty Woods feel offended?
Woods and the other waited for help, while Obama waited for them to die.... then it’s off to Vegas.
Obama, you worthless bastard, I am offended, and most of America is offended that you are not on your knees begging for mercy.
We'll accept your resignation immediately, you worthless little slime.
