How much were the Obama’s paid by al Qaeda for the
MANPADs???? Obama’s allegience to al Qaeda
is greater than his to the US Constitution
but there was still probably a quid pro quo.

Since he is the only one who could authorize a cross border attack, this only make sense.

Only the CIC can authorize an international military action. The CIC was AWOL so when the forces already mobilized automatically had to be told to stand down because the CIC WAS WITH REGGIE!

And if I may add, the fellow who had painted the target would have only done so if he knew there was someone ready to fire on it.

Is that when the stand down was issued?

She lost that game in '07. She performed badly at the last hearing. She was sent packing from the Sec of State office. She's already been run over and the bus is backing up to take another run.

Don't be so sure. FACTS and reality mean absolutely nothing to this Marxist, his lapdog media, or even the lib-infested courts, not to mention our sickingly compliant RINO-run House.

I wouldn't be at all surprised of he is allowed to completely skate on this crime, laughing all the way.

Obama could personally shoot babies in the back of their heads while they do the annual Easter egg hunt on the White House lawn and the media would still call him the greatest president ever.

I like the argument and I see it as problematic for Obama, however, it seems to me that he can simply say that he delegated this responsibility to a trusted subordinate.

But still, I am going to stock up on popcorn. ;>)

Obama is quite aware that he can literally get away with anything and he intends to take full advantage of that power. Benghazi was small cakes compared to what he is cooking up next.

There is no information that will make the Left turn on - or even question - Obama. Don’t you see, to them, HE IS THEM - to question him is to question themselves. It’s like water saying ”I’m wet.” Not possible.

True, but she did not have the authority to act that night. Her wilful criminality was before and after the act.

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.

Judge Jeanine Investigates Benghazi Gate Part 4 - 10/20/2012 video 6:53
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 prior 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.

EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say

0bama refused to act!

to this and other comments:

o’stoner could be loading aborted babies into wagons with a pitchfork and the spinate would never impeach him.

Wasn’t there a deal cut with hillary for o’stoner’s campaign fund to pay her campaign debts back in ‘08? If I am remembering right there is a lot of leverage for he to stand in front of him.

I fear this will be a tempest in a tea pot and come to nothing but making the pubbies look foolish. What came of the fast and furious mess? Nothing. For all the posturing and testimony not a thing came of it. Issa better have something this time or he is just trying to stay relevant.

I thought Trey Gowdy was the man-with-the-plan on this bunch of whistleblowers. Is Issa grandstanding him? Gowdy has more on the ball than Issa.

I saw a TV clip of a double amputee at a sporting event in Boston. Now, we’re back to Benghazi. We need to be careful that this isn’t a case of the Democrats working the media. The Democrat voters can’t make the connection between Benghazi and their lives. A double amputee in a wheelchair at a Boston hockey game puts Obama’s incompetence right in their face. The Washington Post and CBS and CNN are just now concerned about Benghazi? Nope. The Democrats realized that their failure at Boston was the real danger. Tie Benghazi and Boston together and the Democrats go shrieking back to hell.

Alternative theory. BO let someone else handle the entire situation. Think Panetta, Axelrod, Val jarrett, etc... Stand down order is given and no one else can take the blame. Obama is hiding more here than he cares to admit. He can never admit that he ignored the entire situation. That would be worse than going to sleep.
