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.
