When the American mission in Benghazi, Libya was attacked on September 11th, 2012, only one person had the positional authority, legal mandate, and communications apparatus to give the order to defend our personnel on the ground: the President of the United States. The President did not give that order, and four Americans died in Benghazi that day. All the rest of the nonsense to which we have been treatedfrom prepared talking points, congressional hearings, and finally to the outright liesmatter not when compared to the ignominious moments in which the President of the United States refused to do his job.
That same day, two other American embassies in the Middle East were also under attack in Sana, Yemen and Cairo, Egypt. As a result, our intelligence systems were on high alert. When the calls, satellite and drone feeds, faxes, and reports began bombarding every command center from Germany to the United States, our nation, already at war for eleven years, was again under siege. Staffs from Africa Command, European Command, the National Military Command Center, the CIA Operations Center, the State Department Operations Center, and the White House Situation Room were fully operational.
This all means that on September 11, 2012, our national security apparatus was on full alert. It means everyone was briefed. This is how it works; no games, no conjecture, no television and movie looks, just real battle in real time with real lives at risk.
The road to that indecision is littered with policy and leadership failures that culminated in an American mission and clandestine CIA base being attacked and the murder of our Ambassador and three dedicated Americans doing their jobs. However, the one person responsible for it all is the one man who could have, but refused to, even

Failure to act is indeed treasonous.
Once again, Barky voted “present”.
Everybody who understands the Chain of Authority knows that the “Stand Down” order had to come from POTUS. A couple of retired generals have said that publicly, but the press seems reluctant to pick it up.
As I have mentioned in other threads;
Being they purposely leaked both the IRS and AP scandals, as bad as they are as misdirection, everyone must ask themselves, just how bad is Benghazi even with what we already know?
Ollie North is setting back and just smiling, because in their zeal to “necklace” him and anyone else in the Reagan Administration for Iran-Contra, the laws they passed as a result have come back to hoist them on their own petard.
And this is far more egregious than Iran-Contra. Does anyone wonder why Hitlery has gone underground? She is the one who made the deal to send “stinger” style weapons to the rebels in Libya which is in direct violation of those laws they passed trying to “get” Reagan.
and pls add me to list
I believe that Issa and the House GOP already have that locked down and documented. They have traced the STAND DOWN order back up the chain of command, and into the civilian command authority..into the Oval Office. They’ll close-hold it, while they conduct more interviews and depositions..basic interrogation techniques is that you let the suspect lock himself into a statement.time-line..then drop the bomb on him. The longer this plays out..it’s far better for the GOP..
That’s interesting. I will wait and see if you are correct.
Over at the “Politix” website, they are displaying a photograph released by the White House “Flickr” that claims to be Obama consulting with Biden, Jack Lew, and two other men I do not recognize the evening of Sept. 11 ostensibly after the attack began.
This is the first anyone has heard of a meeting in the White House at all, much less a meeting that includes Biden and Lew.
Despite this being a Sunday evening, all of the men are dressed in dark suits.
I don’t for a minute believe this photo shows what they claim.

Great link ... Thanks
Actions speak louder than words.
Zippo’s actions on the day of the attack are not those of someone that was surprised by the attack.
No concern whatsoever about what was taking place clearly indicates prior knowledge.
It would be no different than if you were notified your home was being attacked and your family was in danger, yet you calmly went about your business as if nothing was out of the ordinary.
It just doesn’t happen.
The police would consider you suspect #1 in your families murder.
Well we can’t.
And because of his skin color, as Rush has pointed out so many times to the point of boredom, he isn’t going to be held accountable for anything at all.
Sure hope he decides to leave office when his term ends, because if he doesn’t, no one is going to hold him accountable.
and then there are the liberals gearing up to demand zer0 say and be more of zer0. I fully expect a barney frank from our liberal fiends.
