The guy with the courage to vote present found a way to disappear when he got the 3:00 AM call. Shocking.

Actually before disappearing (h/t Breitbart) "Obama said in October that he had given "three directives" as soon as he found out "what was going on"--i.e. as the attacks were ongoing:

...the minute I found out what was going on I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure we are securing our personnel and that we are doing whatever we need to. Number two, we are going to investigate exactly what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice."

Obviously Pannetta forgot about this. Time to remind and Obama the credit he is due.

Or for goodness sake, Eldon. At this point, what difference does it make???


President Barack Obama was nowhere to be found the long and fatal night of September 11, 2012 when Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were assassinated in an attack on the U.S. Mission Outpost in Benghazi, Libya. 

Finally, five months after the terrorist assault, the American people and the families of those brave slain Americans find out that even though live video was being streamed back to Washington, even though requests for backup had been sent, the President left it to others...
