    Default Not a word ...

    ... about Panetta's testimony on Benghazi today?

    The POTUS had said his first order was to "secure our personnel" ... but Panetta says that the order to cross borders was not given, and only the POTUS can do that. Was Panetta supposed to infer the order was given? Should the POTUS have been more specific on crossing the borders?

    Without such authorization to cross borders, the only assets that could be committed to aid Benghazi were the reaction force from Tripoli.

    It appears that the POTUS went to bed after his initial briefing; and that Panetta never specifically informed Hillary.

    Presuming all testimonies were the truth ... if I were a DOS employee almost anywhere I would be heading home.

    Here's a link that includes a video of Panetta's testimony
    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/...zi_700405.html

    Panetta said that Obama left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under seize, "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. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

    Panetta said that, save their 5 o'clock prescheduled meeting with the president the day of September 11, Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that day. There were no calls about the what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.
    So, it looks like the buck stops at Panetta? Not sure I can buy that. However, Panetta will be gone now ... and all this will be forgotten by 2016.

    Nothing thats going on in this Country now is a major concern! To the Liberal mind that is! It is amazing what the left can get by with.But it's equally apalling that the! Republicans voice is absent except for a few.I guess a person could find plenty of reasons to be disgusted
    with both parties.

    I like the emboldened red part!!!


    Paul, who is considering a 2016 run for president, reiterated the same criticisms he used against Clinton when she testified last month about the attacks. During the hearing, he said he would have fired her for not reading the security requests.

    On Thursday, the tea partier doubled-down: “I’m not asking that she read every cable from Bulgaria to Estonia – but Libya was one of the most five dangerous places in the world easily by anybody’s calculation.”

    That was Fox News writing that and not Rand saying that.

    Fox is the voice on the NeoCons and not the Libertarians. In fact, that is why they did away with Judge Napolitano's show on Fox Buisness. Judge N is a Libertarian.

    The NeoCons and Fox were big advocates for invading Iraq and A'stan. Rand and his father were against it. The NeoCons at Fox refuse to cover anything Libertarian and would rather identify Rand as Tea Party. Libertarians are too critical of Fox News and they can't handle it.
