Obama takes 'offense' on some Benghazi accusations
Politico ^ | October 29, 2012 | BYRON TAU

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 haven’t 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 didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable,” Obama said.

“Ultimately, as commander-in-chief, I’m responsible, and I don’t shy away from that responsibility. My number one responsibility is to go after the folks who did this, and we’re going to make sure we get them,” Obama said.

Spewing lies right up until the end. At least he’s consistent.

His "number one responsibility" was to do whatever he could to prevent the deaths of four brave Americans. That, followed by his responsibility to tell the truth about what he knew and when he knew it, what he did and when he did it.

He’s going to sue them.

My number one responsibility is to go after the folks who did this, and we’re going to make sure we get them,” Obama said.

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.

“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.

I am offended that four Americans are DEAD as a direct result of Obama's decision to let them die.

But here’s one for a start:

Using the word “folks” to describe bloodthirsty Muslim terrorists.

******
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.
