WH Won't Release Photos of Obama Team During Benghazi Attack
Breitbart ^ | 11/21/2012 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 11/22/2012 9:41:57 PM PST by mojito

Today, the White House officially refused to release photos of US officials during the September 11 terrorist attacks on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that ended with the deaths of four Americans. CBS News requested the photos on October 31; the White House has routinely released photos showing members of the Obama administration in their hero poses during national security crises. That happened most famously with pictures of the Obama administration key players clustered into the White House situation room during the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.

Maybe, because Obama wasn’t present to be in the “pitchers”.

Common theme that they refuse to release photos. I doubt any were even taken.

They can’t release the photos as there are none! Barry did not participate in any situation room activities, as he had already headed off to bed for his beauty rest in preparation of his campaigning trip to Vegas the next day. Caring about the folks in Benghazi was below him and not important enough for him to stay up late. What a LOSER we have at the White House!

Better for them if you think they weren’t there than to SHOW they were there and did nothing.

Ping.

So was caring for the folks in Benghazi above his pay grade or below his pay grade?

Actually, if there was a photo, it would just show a room full of empty chairs.

Clint had it right from the get go.

If a camera takes a picture of an empty suit in an empty chair; is there anything in the picture?

Nothing that shows him or nothing that shows him looking “presidential”. I thought Clinton was bad, but this guy puts Clinton in the running for sainthood.

A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a reality contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the police state dictatorship it’s going to get.

CBS requested the photos? (I’m SHOCKED!) Does this mean they are wandering off the reservation? And and then they were denied?!? They aren’t going to be too happy about that! Wonder if CBS will be on the White Hut’s “do-not-give-press-release-to” list for daring to request those pictures?!

POSH*TUS was watching the Benghazi drone video feed while cheering for the mujahadeen.

He would not push the fire toggle on his Game Boy....4 good Americans died.

Ho hum, off to bed, have an early gorf game.

Treasonous POS!

Heh, I was just about to say, “The White House won’t release pictures of Obama in the Situation Room on the night of the Benghazi attack for the same reason I won’t release any photos of ME in the Situation Room that night.”

And Barack Hussein Obama gave a “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” speech to the United Nations in September 2011.

What a difference a year makes.

Agree. Why do you think he uses “ when I was informed” so freely.

It’s the truth. He wasn’t involved, just informed. Probably by phone.

He can tell the truth, and have people assume he was actually doing his job,
or cared.....

The MSM will not ask him “ where were you, and what were doing , when you
were informed”
