President Obama Begs
Off Answering Whether Americans
in Benghazi Were
Denied Requests for Help

ABC News, by Jake Tapper

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/26/2012 6:48:54 PM

In an interview with a Denver TV reporter Friday, President Obama twice refused to answer questions as to whether the Americans under siege in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, were denied requests for help, saying he’s waiting for the results of investigations before making any conclusions about what went wrong. After being asked about possible denials of requests for aid, and whether it’s fair to tell Americans that what happened is under investigation and won’t be released until after the election, the president said, “the election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed

Comments:
Sorry Barry, America isn't going to let you get to Nov. 6th without an answer. Better hope Valerie Jarrett comes up with something quick.

If anybody deserves an answer to what happened that night it's Mr. Woods and the other families of the fallen.

Obama sacrificed 4 American lives for a political calculation that blaming a video would allow him to ride this out to election day. To have sent in help would have ment having to admit that there was a terrorist attack. It would have raised questions about why we were not prepared and would have set up the possibility for him to be compared to Jimmy Carter if things in a rescue went wrong. Too bad for those Americans in Benghazi. Obama's re election was more important.

Interesting, reading the 'comments' section, most are furious about the Non-Reporting of the story.

He hasn't accepted Trump's offer of $5 million for college/passport records either.

He's hiding plenty, and his friends in the LSM have abandoned all pretense of impartiality and professionalism to ensure it all stays hidden.

This election has a LOT to do with the death of 4 Americans. Everyone of us knows someone in the military, CIA, or State Dept, etc. and this concerns us because it concerns them. This also says that these people would let the American people on this soil die to protect one of their lies, their hides, or something to do with their foolish ideology.

Sadly, I believe #4 is correct.

Priority #1 for Obama and crew has been to put a lid on the whole affair, particularly until after Election Day.

Reaches the level of "high crimes" IMO.

Obama and legacy media only have to ignore this scandal until November 6th. If he wins, issue disappears because "I won, again, and the American people want me to focus on something other than 4 bumps." BO will be as callous as Hillary, knowing that NYT, WaPo and NBC could care less.

If he loses (yes!), he will ignore all requests for all info on scandals, from Benghazi and Fast & Furious to "green" energy. He'll spend last 3 months playing golf in Hawaii, Bora Bora, New Zealand and any other place his mother-in-law has seen. Eric Holder will have comprehensive pardon list executed on January 19th.

Obviously they were denied help, because help
never came .
Sheesh- we're not all Obamaphone people , Tapper.
With the bombshell news reported today by FOX , treason
and criminal charges
are the first terms that automatically spring to mind.
Obama's excuse, which the media laps up , is so infuriating.
We couldn't send help until we determined the cause
of the attack.
Like saying firemen cannot enter a building
and extinguish a blaze until they determine the cause of the fire.
The military community is en fuego today ,
as are normal , patriotic Americans.
This is outrageous.

E-mails prove that the Obama administration denied the Benghazi embassy personnel's pleas for help before they were murdered.

Presumably, the White House answered their pleas at the time by declaring that the situation was ''under investigation.''

Now, the same Obama administration is using the same excuse to deny the requests for the truth from the grieving families of the four Benghazi dead.

At least a Denver TV reporter had the decency to try to help the families by pressing Obama for the truth. Maybe the voters of Denver will be so disgusted at Obama's refusal to answer the reporter that they'll put the battleground state of Colorado clearly in Romney's column.

I don't believe Obama did not know what was happening at Benghazi. He knew and was setting up an October Surprise gone terribly wrong! It was supposedly a fake kidnapping where the ambassador was supposed to be taken in a safehouse and be rescued by Special forces sometime before the election. It supposed to be another Bin laden scenario and Obama will looked to be unbeatable for freeing the ambassador. But the two SEALS, Woods and Doherty who weren't in on the plot threw a monkey wrench by intervening without authorization. They had to to be killed by giving the insurgents the target information so they can eliminate both of them with mortars - silenced them forever. If ever they survived, they definitely would have taken down the Obama administration for their treasonous conspiracy. Sounds more plausible to me rather than the stupid, stupid video.

Questions an honest media member would be asking right now:
Who was in the Situatiion Room?
Was Obama in the Situation Room?
What time did Obama go to bed?
What time did Obama leave for Vegas?
Why did Obama skip the Intelligence Briefing on the 12th?
Was this a gun running operation?
If it was a gun running operation,is that why there were no investigators on the scene.

Our disgraceful Pravda media should also be tried for treason. Starting with Nightly News anchors.

This is quickly becoming more and more damaging as it goes on. The lies are getting difficult to keep straight, and 10 days is a long time to hide under your desk when you are running for president.
Even IF he is re-elected, Issa will not drop this. If Romney is elected, there should be no amount of effort spared to get to the bottom of this outrage. This isnt like it was a random firefight on foreign soil.. this was an attack on OUR soil. We have to protect our ambassadors, or bring them home. period.

How come he doesn't know already? This is the kind of gimmicky answer produced by someone who as they say never ever ran anything. Is he not able to command accountability? Not on the death of an ambassador? What kind of manager is this? Does he think it is normal to be out of touch with such facts? Is he getting his ideas of executive behavior from things he saw on television (yes), where, like, Simpson's boss, see? he demands answers! President Obama plays one on TV.

This is getting worse and worse-per Fox News--they didn't just ignore Stevens' request for help prior to the attack. DURING the attack they had excellent communications and fire power galore, including armed drones that must have been overhead (because the SEALS were lasering targets for it!!) they could have sent, but the order was given repeatedly to STAND DOWN. JAKE TAPPER-for God's sake, step up and be what journalists are supposed to be in a free democratic nation-tell the American people this horrific, tragic story....

They are busy 'creating' a narrative. They cannot tell the turth. Sorry, it's not in 0's DNA, if he has any.

What, exactly, was the CIA doing in Benghazi? Fast & Furious 2.0? Was this whole thing a gun deal gone wrong? Were Stevens and the others killed with the arms that 0 sold to al queerda?

When the truth is out, 0 will be completely exposed as the biggest liar in the history of the United States.

First to the press: will you please in heaven's name ask the President -- if he won't answer won't happen because it is too soon -- why EVEN EARLIER than now, when he knew even LESS about what was going on, he went to the U.N. with a story he now implicitly acknowledges wasn't true. Why his Secretary of State parroted the same story in that dumb commercial she did, why his Ambassador to the U.N. went on all 5 Sunday shows (full Ginsberg) and told that story.
Second, to the President, if the election isn't about your foreign policy, what is it supposed to be about? Libya is on YOU 100%. Nothing to do with Bush or the congressional Republicans.

"We want to be sure we get it right."

What utter bull*hit.

It is as plain to see as the lengthening nose on his face that Obama's indecision on the night of September 11th while he sought to "get it right" is the reason four Americans are dead. He had all of the facts necessary to act. He was asked repeatedly to do so but didn't.

Was he waiting for Valerie to give him the green light to act as was the case in the aborted Bin Laden raids when she stopped the President from acting?

The father of Throne Woods last night called the inaction by those in the Administration the equivalent of murder. No mincing of words there. One can empathize with the parent of a lost navy SEAL who defied orders to stand down so as to engage the enemy to save American lives. Obama was at best grossly negligent in failing to order forces to help Americans in peril. As Commander in Chief, he exhibited gross dereliction of duty.

Likewise let us not forget the now-obvious lies that Biden spewed forth during the VP debate. Remember his words? He emphatically stated that the White House did not know what was happening on the ground. He blamed the intelligence community for bad intelligence. Biden is a disgrace.

Americans have less than two weeks until they can exercise their rights to vote these two out of office. It can't come quickly enough.

So, he says NOW that he gave a directive to secure our personnel and doing whatever we need to do? Isn't that saying that he KNEW what was going on? So, why is he holding on to "I personally was not aware"?????

"These are folks who
served under me...


"...served under" him? Is he serious? He'd soil himself if asked to serve in the military or for that matter, to do anything risky.

He has demonstrated his cowardice repeatedly by refusing to make hard decisions and by blaming everyone else for his failures as a man, as a President, and as a Commander-In-Chief.

Who gave the "NO" answer to the cries for help? In this situation, answers have to come from the top. So was it Jarrett, Hillary, Biden, who? We know it wasn't Obama because he'd never have the cojones to make such a decision and have it go south on him.

Obama demands plausible deniability, so who was it that gave the orders to let our men die? And who signed off on those orders?

He missed his calling as a stand-up comic. He does a pretty good Richard Pryor out on the stump. He would have been perfect on Def Comedy Jam.

"We have to wait until we have a full investigation.....". How many times have we heard that in the past 4 years? And we NEVER hear the results of any "investigation". And just how thorough of an investigation can be done in a foreign country? How can you compel witnesses to come forward with an information they might have? Are we going to subpoena them? How stupid do these people think we are?

Anyone with a speck of reasoning and common sense knows that all that is being played out now are stalling tactics to get past Nov. 6. It's a copper riveted cinch that all of this will die down after the election. Especially if (GOD forbid) Oboza should win.

I give a star to Fox News for staying on this. I hope that they continue to beat this drum loud and long until we, the people, get some satisfactory answers from the WH. And we MUST intensify our efforts to get rid of Obozo and elect Mitt Romney.

Young reporter NBC affiliate in Denver. He followed Benghazi question, with Solyndra and green energy (loooooooong Obama "answer") and a question re. calling Romney a BSer. Hopefully FOX has snapped this reporter up while he is still in the I am a real reporter/journalist stage. Anyway, kudos to the reporter. Check out the video which is referenced somewhere below or the full interview. Finally Obama death count-- 4 dead Americans, at least 1 known dead American border agents, and daily dead American soldiers in Afghanistan left with a single force of about 64,000 to be shot in the back of the head or otherwise murdered by Afghanis or Taliban or whoever. Picked off. And counting....

New Intel - this was a seriously botched operation.

Ambassador Stevens was to be taken hostage, not killed

To be traded for the Blind Sheik. Obama's people worked this out in order to mollify the Muslim Brotherhood's demand for the sheik's return. A hostage trade would be cover.

Instead, the jihadists killed Stevens.

This is why everyone was told to "stand down! "stand down!" The station personnel were not be rescued until Obama could step in and make the trade.

Now they have to cover it up. Political suicide if this truth gets out

We will never get the truth. The truth is we have domestic enemies, and what congressman or newspaper is going with that until he can "get it right?" They define the problem and express disappointment and say "We need to get to the bottom of this soon." And they laugh at us. We are crippled by politically correct lawyers, and the people thinking they are supporting Obama and fairness do not have a clue what they are aiding abd abetting. Ask yourself: what calculation did McCain make when he stopped Bachmann from investigating Muslim influence on our policy? It was a Rove-type calculation.

IMO Obama was incapable of making any decision as he was unsure how any repercussions would play out for his reelection campaign. So he basically did NOTHING as Americans died. He watched it all in real time and did NOTHING.

Reelection is ALL he care about at this point in time..

The 4 Americans were nothing other than Collateral Damage in Obama's eyes.

Hilary Clinton kept her word to Tyrone Woods' father: Mr. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the permanent US resident Coptic Christian, is now in Federal Prison in Los Angeles. Hussein Soetoro himself addressed the video six times in his shameful speech to the United Nations General Assembly on September 24. Three days later Nakoula entered a prison where Muslim inmates are a threat to him.

Thank you Fox News for uncovering the lies of Obama. We will watch the new Bret Baier Benghazi program today. It will be repeated twice tomorrow.

Al-Qaida is doing just fine, thank you very much. ObamakilledOsama but al-Zawahiri's brother was directing the takeover of the American Embassy in Cairo on Sept. 11. I remember when the Obama female ambassador to the Muslim Brotherhood apologized for the Innocence of Muslims YouTube video before al-Qaida took down our flag and replaced it their own

This is not going away.

He is going to lose the election, then be impeached during his lame duck term, and then a Republican Senate is going to convict him after the first of the new year and strip him of his lifetime benefits. Then he will be prosecuted and imprisoned.

The "Affordable Care Act" will be repealed by that same Republican Senate about the time he is convicted just for good measure.

#28, Clinton did the same thing i.e. "calling for an investigation" in response to Jim Lehrer's question about "did you have a relationship with the young woman Lewinski."

You don't have to investigate something of which you and only you have personal knowledge.

This is not going away.

I read this on Powerline this morning and it made my blood boil! I hope it is OK to copy and post here. How can we have sunk so low that a candidate (excuse me a president) will jettison all duties in favor of re-election? AND the media will cover?

"If, in addition, there is credible evidence that American soldiers, fighting desperately for their lives against our country’s most bitter enemies, called for help but were cynically left to perish in order to protect Barack Obama’s petty re-election campaign, Obama will not only lose the election but will be turned out of office in disgust by a clear majority of voters. Reporters and editors know this. It will be interesting to see how they respond during the coming days: will they do their jobs, or will they assist their candidate with his cover-up?"

my liberal husband doesn't believe that pres. obama had anything to do with the libya debacle. if he did, "why hasn't the globe (boston) or nyt printed anything? why didn't romney say anything during the debate? it's only the right wing conspirators who are making accusations." hard to argue with that line of reasoning. we can scream and yell all we want but it's all into the wind. i believe that the msm knows that were this info be printed in the papers, pres. obama would lose hugely and they absolutely don't want that. whether it's a voiced and behind the scenes conspiracy
i don't know, but it certainly seems that way.
my question is: what can we do beside scream into the wind?
anyone have an answer?

Expendible consumables in the effort to maintain some imaginary semblance of not doing anything that may offend Mohammed.
He lied after folks died. "Folks" is such a hometown word. Brings back warmth and togetherness like a Norman Rockwell painting of Christmas. Those people died horrible unimaginable deaths. How about they release the autopsy reports and some drone video. Let's have a time line put down on paper as to what unfolded minute by minute, who sent what to who when and what happened. This will make a dynamite movie som day. Napoleon had his Waterloo, and Doh'bama has his Bengazi. It's the final countdown to election day and We The People saying it stops now. Que Donald Trum the morning after Romney sweeps it and let him say to Bamajama, "You're fired, suckah!".

Three Urgent Requests for Military Back-Up Denied: Does Public Deserve to Know Who Told CIA Operators to 'Stand Down' During Benghazi Attack?

I believe each and every one of us should be hitting as many news outlets' websites as possible and make comments - even copy some of the wonderful comments on this page - I think every one of us should do this every day until the election results are announced. I think we should absolutely drown them in our comments - leave no doubt what we think of this travesty.

I believe we should be blistering to every comment that flatters the Administration until we KNOW what was and was not done and said. And I believe politeness has left us forever because no one in DC has earned one teeny bit of politeness.

Media must have SOME value. There will be more people hear us if we bang on THEIR door, and especially if we continually bang without letup.

I AM MAD.

Here’s a situation where a black woman in the White House could make a difference. Earlier this week, the U.S. Army released its new appearance and grooming regulations, AR 670-1, and it was a real burn for African-American female soldiers. The updated rules ban twists, multiple braids bigger than a quarter of an inch in diameter, and dreadlocks of any size. Cornrows also can’t be bigger than a quarter of an inch. As of Wednesday afternoon, nearly 8,000 people had signed a petition calling on President Barack Obama to order the Army to reconsider the regulations because they are “racially biased.” The petition

While unemployment has been a major impediment to African-Americans´ economic progress, underemployment is a bigger obstacle for them than it is for whites or Hispanics, the National Urban League says in its latest State of Black America report. The annual report, called "One Nation Underemployed: Jobs Rebuild America," noted that African-Americans are twice as likely as whites to be unemployed.(snip)The National Urban League is pushing for several economic measures, including an increase in the minimum wage, an issue being debated in Congress. Democrats backed by President Barack Obama want to force election-year votes on gradually increasing today´s minimum to $10.10 by

The latest spurious reports coming out of North Korea see men required to adopt that ahead-of-the-trend high-top fade haircut supreme leader Kim Jong Un has been rocking in recent years.State-sanctioned guidelines were imposed on the capital Pyongyang two weeks ago, the BBC reports, with the shaved sides look now being rolled out across the country. The haircut, incidentally already having been adopted by 85% of east London´s men, is a fierce reduction from the original 10 styles that were previously allowed in North Korea. "Our leader´s haircut is very particular, if you will," a source told Radio Free Asia. "It

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

IN a major behind-the-scenes blowout, President BARACK OBAMA and first lady MICHELLE waged their worst White House fight ever over her lavish vacation trip to China! Sources tell The ENQUIRER that Obama exploded when Mi­chelle refused to cancel her pricey getaway – even after White House advisers warned him that the first couple’s six-year string of extravagant vacations had already drained the U.S. Trea­sury of a whopping $150 million in tax­payers’ money. Instead of postpon­ing her trip, a furious Michelle – still seeth­ing over the embarrassing “selfie” Barack recently snapped with a leggy blonde head of state –

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied. In a Tuesday appearance on HuffPost Live to discuss outreach to African American communities,

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

The story of the first-generation Ghanian-American student accepted by all eight Ivy league schools is wonderful, but it also stirs up the tension between black Americans and recent African immigrants — especially when you describe him as "not a typical African-American kid." That´s been the reaction to USA Today´s profile on Kwasi Enin, a Long Island high schooler who got into the nation´s most competitive schools through hard work and, according to IvyWise CEO Katherine Cohen, being African (and being male). At one point the piece reads: Being a first-generation American from Ghana also helps him stand out, Cohen says. "He´s

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official

Benghazi Might Be Fox’s MH370,

CNN has taken a lot of heat–and rightly so!–for its obsessive reporting on missing flight MH370, which has often come at the detriment of more pressing or substantive stories. But no less ridiculous is Fox News’ #Benghazi fixation, which was in full fever Wednesday morning as the network devoted three hours and thirty-eight minutes of continual coverage of a Benghazi congressional hearing. Benghazi has long been Fox’s fallback, less a news story than a sort of epistemological wound that can never close simply because conservatives refuse to accept conclusions about the events of September 11, 2012 that don’t conform to
