In all fairness, that's a pretty light weight.

In more ways than one but the phone records they should check are more likely Valerie’s, our pseudo-President.

As another FReeper posted a day or so ago, he was probably sleeping like a baby getting rested up for his campaign trip to Las Vegas the next day.

I believe that because he's always about himself.

So when will he be impeached?

Yeah...I know...CRICKETS!

Actually, he should be in jail. As president and commander in chief, he has a higher standard of responsibility. That he didn’t bother to act, or be sure others acted, caused four Americans to die. He is negligent. He is just as responsible for their deaths as the savages who did the actual killing.

Cut to the chase and ask them what President Jarrett did and whom she was in touch with. We all know Obama’s just a pawn on the big, Marxist chessboard.

I don't know Mesta, but I could bet you money that it involved words like Kike, Heeb, Hymie, lots of F words and Ubama probably told Netenyahu he could munch on his matzah's for now but he will find a way to turn people's opinion against the Jews.

I don't know of course I wasn't there.

But I do know how Ubama thinks.

He's only concerned with how much fun he can have, with no interest in doing the work he's supposed to do. Besides, if he actually does something, he could be blamed for the outcome. Far easier to just sleep in.

And the media covered it all up in the run up to the November election.

Had this been a (R) in office, the media would be asking “What did he know, and when did he know it?” and running polls asking if the (R) Incumbent should be Impeached, etc...

Instead, they were too busy e-fellating Obama and lied by omission about Benghazi and continue to do so.

What do you suppose the press release regarding that conversation would have been if ALL the Americans in Benghazi had died because ‘Israel’ backed an anti-muslim film that led to their deaths?

“During the entire attack, the president of the United States never picked up the phone to put the weight of his office in the mix,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, who had held up Mr. Obama’s defense secretary nominee to force the information to be released.

Its time for Arpiao's final report to be released. Actually WAAAAY past time.

Mr. Netanyahu, speaking at a news conference in Jerusalem, said, “Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.”

In another sign of tensions, the Israeli Embassy in Washington said late Tuesday that the Obama administration had declined a request from Mr. Netanyahu’s office for a meeting with Mr. Obama when the Israeli leader attends the United Nations General Assembly this month. The Obama administration said the decision was due to a scheduling problem and had been conveyed to Israel long ago.

On Tuesday night, Mr. Obama called Mr. Netanyahu to try to calm the situation. The two talked for a full hour, hashing through the Iran confrontation and their misunderstandings.

Brave Obama ran away.
Bravely ran away, away.
When danger reared it's ugly head
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes Brave Obama turned about
He gallantly chickened out.

Bravely taking to his feet
He beat a very brave retreat.
Oh bravest of the brave, Obama.

Mr. Netanyahu, who is highly attuned to American politics, seemed to be using his comments to pressure Mr. Obama to specify at which point the United States would be prepared to take military action against Iran, perhaps at the United Nations General Assembly opening this month.

The Israeli ambassador to the United States, Michael B. Oren, echoed Mr. Netanyahu in an interview in Washington on Monday night and said the Israeli leadership wanted Mr. Obama and the leaders of other nations to agree on clear limits for Iran.

“We know that the Iranians see red,” Mr. Oren said. “We know they can discern the color red. We know that the redder the line, the lesser the chance that they will pass it.”

Mrs. Clinton publicly rejected that approach over the weekend. In an interview with Bloomberg Radio, she avoided discussion of Iran’s stockpile and said, “We’re not setting deadlines” for military action. It was that statement that appeared to have set off Mr. Netanyahu.

He won’t be impeached. One of the reasons is that he has black skin and too many whites suffer from guilt. They also voted for him for this reason. (Just an opinion.)

Only the POTUS had the authority to act!

0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer (U.S. Army ret.), former CIA Station Chief Gary Berntsen and former CIA operative Mike Baker

They confirm everything Col. Hunt said about automatic notifications to the WH and add more details.

Howie Carr interview with Col. Hunt On The Newest Libyan Revelations audio 28:37

There are three scandals here...

---------------------------------------------------------

Denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.

The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.

ONE man had the authority to act that night.

ONE man deserted his post!

Generalissimo Ubama tries to reason with the Rouge Israeli Prime Minister whos foolish propaganda efforts cause Americans to be attacked in Libya and Cairo!

Just look at the rising Anti-Semtic opinions in the world and our own country. Do you think Ubama's People likes us Jews in anyway?

Hell the F*****g Greek Nazi Party is partying in Athens and the Egyptian Nazi Party was put into power with Ubama's blessing.

Do you think he really fears Impeachment?

It wasn’t ordered to stand down per se. 0bamugabe simply did not authorize a CBA. His silence caused some DoD subordinate to tell them to stand down because they lacked authority to move. Nothing more or less than that. 0bamugabe turned his back and that was that.
