Here is video from President Obama’s Press Conference today, his first in 8 months, where he was confronted by Fox News’ Ed Henry about Benghazi. Henry asked him if he issued any orders to send help to the Americans under attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, pointing out that the father of one of the dead said he feels like his son dialed 911 and got no help. Obama avoided the question, with Henry following up, not letting him off the hook. Obama used his “offended” response, saying “if anyone thinks” he didn’t do everything possible blah, blah, blah. But he never described any specific orders to send help – which was in the region – to help the Americans who where under attack for many hours.
Here is video of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani speaking tonight at the massive (30,000 people) Romney / Ryan Victory Rally in West Chester, Ohio, where he blasted President Barack Obama for not acting to save the brave Americans killed in the Benghazi Terrorist Attack on September 11, 2012.
The Benghazi Terrorist Attack becomes more of a scandal with each passing day.
Here is Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin reporting this morning from the Pentagon that two cables from Ambassador Chris Steven’s team warned Washington three hours BEFORE the September 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that “a Libyan Militia was gathering weapons and gathering steam.”
We know the attack itself went on for more than 7 hours, meaning there was at least 10 hours of possible response time to come to the assistance of the Americans on the ground in Benghazi – yet no help was rendered, even though assets were available to come to their rescue.
President’s motorcade drives past signs: “tell the truth about Benghazi” & “worse than Watergate” “you let them die” twitter.com/edhenryTV/stat…— Ed Henry (@edhenryTV) November 2, 2012
Here is video of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus on CNN’s “State of the Union” today where he said Americans are talking about “the Economy” and “what happened in Benghazi.” Priebus said President Obama claims he gave a directive to help the Americans under attack in Benghazi, but his own Secretary of Defense – Leon Panetta – says he turned down a request for help when it came to him. Priebus said either Obama is not telling truth about giving such a directive, or Panetta chose to “act as Commander-in-Chief” instead of Obama.
