New Ad Calls For Obama To 'Come Clean' On Benghazi

When They Called; President Obama Failed on Benghazi

Women United PAC -- New York, NY, October 30, 2012 — Today, Women United launches “When They Called,” which addresses President Obama’s failure of leadership in his highest duty, that of commander in chief. Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were abandoned by their commander in chief, who took credit for the SEAL operation that killed Bin Laden and made it a centerpiece of his political campaign, but who repeatedly stood before the cameras after the Benghazi attack and blamed the deaths of heroic Navy SEALs on a video that insulted Islam.

--We now know that the White House was monitoring the attack and was aware of events as they unfolded in Benghazi in real time.

--We now know that, in fact, the White House was told within two hours after the attack began that it was pre-planned, and carried out by heavily armed Islamist militia groups who publicly took credit for the attack.

--We now know that, over a period of seven agonizing hours, as the attack continued, our people on the ground pleaded desperately for help and were repeatedly denied. We don’t expect a perfect president, but we demand an honest one. We expect a president who will step up, make the tough decisions, and take responsibility. When it comes to the Benghazi massacre, President Obama has failed by every measure.

It is in times of crisis, usually after lives have been lost, when the paramount importance of national security is brought home to the American people. We know—as the mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of the men and women who volunteer to serve in harm’s way—that their security and the security of our country depends on clear-eyed, unfaltering leadership.

Today, we release “When They Called,” as a demand for President Obama to come clean with the American people, and as a call for Americans to rise up and elect a new commander in chief.

Blog author's comments - The 'transparent' Obama seems to have disappeared. He pledged to have the most transparent administration in U.S. history. He and his administration are covering up what happened in Benghazi. He did the same with 'Fast and Furious' and many other issues during hopefully his only term as president.

When he became president Barack Obama said: "My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government."

How did that work out for America? We have had enough, we cannot withstand four more years of Barack Obama and his administration.

Via the The Blaze -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Tuesday a U.S. senator told him that at least two news networks have emails from the White House ordering a counterterrorism team to stand down on a rescue mission at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

“There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down,” Gingrich told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “They were a group in real-time trying to mobilize Marines and C-130s and the fighter aircraft, and they were told explicitly by the White House ‘stand down and do nothing. This is not a terrorist action."

He continued, “If that’s true, and I’ve been told this by a fairly reliable U.S. senator, if that’s true and that comes out in the next day or two, I think it raises enormous questions about the president’s role, Tom Donilon, the National Security Adviser’s role, the Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who has taken it on his own shoulders, that he said don't go. And I think that’s very dubious, given that the president said he had instructions they are supposed to do everything they could to secure American personnel."

Gingrich said if accurate, it leaves two conclusions: that the the secretary of defense usurped the commander in chief or that Obama never gave the order.

“I think you are going to see this come back tomorrow and the next day,” he said.

Gingrich said he thinks Benghazi will be “enormous in terms of the election,” saying that he’s been to multiple places where voters want to know what happened.
