"What the president is worried about, Major, is what happened and why in Benghazi. He is not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or I went out and talked about the fact that we believed extremists might have been responsible. And whether we named them as al Qaeda or not does not--no, it certainly doesn't have any bearing on what happened and who was responsible as that investigation was continuing on Benghazi."
Blog author's comments - Barack Obama also doesn't appear to be "particularly concerned" that four Americans were murdered by terrorists in Libya on sovereign U.S. soil. Anyone who has followed what happened is aware that the U.S. ambassador, Christopher Stevens, had asked for more security but did not receive it. We also know the attack was not caused by a 'You Tube' video that ridicules Islam's Prophet Muhammad, made by an American citizen. Al Qaeda planned this attack to occur on the anniversary of 9/11.
Obama and others had the chance to help the Americans during the Benghazi attack but did nothing. We have a dead ambassador, we have three other dead Americans, and in the midst of this attack does anyone know where the president was? Why wasn't there orders for help given?
Did Obama expect us to believe that after Osama bin Laden was killed by the Navy SEAL Team 6, that al Qaeda was now much weaker as a terrorist threat? I do not think that bin Laden had been a factor in any actions taken by al Qaeda for years.
Many members of the mainstream media do not care about what happened, the Obama administration does not seem to care enough to take responsibility for their lack of support, but worst of all the people who elected Obama to a second term apparently do not care either.
I believe Obama will nominate Susan Rice as the next Secretary of State and she will be appointed. She did the job which was asked of her and appeared on all the Sunday talk shows using the talking points provided for her, to attempt to cover for Obama's lack of leadership as president.
