BOMBSHELL - Panetta: Obama Absent Night of Benghazi - VIDEO

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified this morning on Capitol Hill that President Barack Obama was absent the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012:

Panetta said that Obama left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under seize, "up to us."

In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Panetta said that, save their 5 o'clock prescheduled meeting with the president the day of September 11, Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that day. There were no calls about the what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.

I thought I remembered very early reports

(when it was a youtube's fault) said that they monitored the event. Said President was there for a while but left. The story changed. Into the memory hole.

probably one of those

"Can you hear me now" moments.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

Don't tell me that it was Bush's fault again.

Obama has been permanently absent for the last four years. He wakes up just long enough to start another undeclared war, then he goes back to sleep.

It's Bush's fault...

too. ;)

I just don't want people to separate Bush from Obama from Clinton from Bush Sr because they are all implicit and all deserve to go to jail.

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

How many of these hearings need to happen

before people start going to prison for treason?

So tired of seeing these people without a care in the world as they tell people how they didn't do their jobs to protect the lives they've sworn to protect. I'm just wondering, what's the breaking point? Do they really need to start executing people in the streets or do people have enough to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH yet? Are people waiting for an "American Spring"? What's the deal?

No word from Hillary during the attack

"Neither the secretary of defense nor the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke to the secretary of state during the 8-hour attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. At a Thursday hearing in the Senate, Republican Ted Cruz asked both Leon Panetta and Martin Dempsey, "In between 9:42 p.m., Benghazi time, when the first attacks started, and 5:15 am, when Mr. Doherty and Mr. Woods lost their lives, what converations did either of you have with Secretary Clinton?"
"We did not have any conversations with Secretary Clinton," Panetta responded.
"And General Dempsey, the same is true for you?" Cruz asked. Dempsey confirmed this.
