Benghazi AWOL List
I guess it took a real Conservative, Texas Senator Ted Cruz to ask some tough questions in an effort to get the Obama cabinet liars and Military honchos to cough up the truth. Not to be left in the dust Senator John McCain (R-AZ) got specific.
First, John McCain questioning General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Watch the video below: (Emphasis LCs)
"Why didn't you put forces in place to be ready to respond?," Senator John McCain asked the general.
Dempsey started, "Because we never received a request to do so, number one. And number two, we --"
McCain interrupted, "You never heard of Ambassador Stevens's repeated warnings?"
"I had, through General Ham," responded Dempsey, referring to the commander of AFRICOM. "But we never received a request for support from the State Department, which would have allowed us to put forces--"
"So it's the State Department's fault?"
"I'm not blaming the State Department," Dempsey responded.
With Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta on the hot seat Senator Cruz asked both Panetta and Dempsey the same question:
"In between 9:42 p.m., Benghazi time, when the first attacks started, and 5:15 am, when Mr. Doherty and Mr. Woods lost their lives, what converations did either of you have with Secretary Clinton?"
"We did not have any conversations with Secretary Clinton," Panetta responded.
"And General Dempsey, the same is true for you?" Cruz asked. Dempsey confirmed this. Watch the video below:
Panetta testifed that Barack Obama was absent the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. Panetta said, though he did meet with Obama at a 5 o'clock prescheduled gathering, the president left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under siege, "up to us."
In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House. Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that night. There were no calls about what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in. Watch the video below:
Where were Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama? Why were they not specifically engaged in the Benghazi attacks? Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) gets tough below. Obama AWOL!
Good men died while the Obama regime lied!
