Isn’t it just amazing — our president shows us his situation room at a time when he gives the order to take out Osama bin Laden (even though leaks harmful to Americans, disclosed for his benefit) and we again see the situation room when our president acts presidential during Superstorm Sandy. But where is the picture of the situation room showing Obama dealing with the tragedy in Benghazi?
Why didn’t our president know how dangerous it was for our ambassador in Benghazi before and on Sept. 11, or did he? Why wasn’t our consulate in Benghazi secure before Sept. 11? Why was security reduced even after several requests were made to increase it? Why weren’t troops sent in to help save our ambassador and three other Americans who were killed in a seven-hour battle on Sept. 11?
Who made the decision not to help? Why did our president tell his press secretary and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to tell us the lie that the ambassador and the other Americans were attacked and killed by a crowd protesting an obscure anti-Islamic film, when he knew almost within one hour of the attack that it was an Islamic terrorist group? And why did he keep this lie alive for over two weeks after said attack?
This is the biggest scandal of our nation and your paper, as well as the liberal press are not even asking the questions. You journalists ought to be ashamed!
