I’m about to ********************** because apparently President Obama needs an investigation into what he said, did not say, did and did not do. This ridiculous. On October 27, 2012 KUSA-TV’s Kyle Clarke asked President Obama concerning requests for support in Benghazi, “Were they denied requests for help during the attack?
This is a straight forward question that needs a simple Yes/No answer with an explanation to the reason why. Obama answers the question with my paraphrase,
“I don’t remember what I said and there needs to be an investigation so that I and the American people will know exactly what command I gave.”
Does this even make sense to any reasonable person? Of course not! Besides, how is it that Obama can’t remember an order he gave but can surely remember the 3 “clear directives” he gave? One of those directives was to secure personnel and “doing whatever we need to [do].” So President Obama essentially said, “do whatever it takes to secure and protect Americans.” Problem is that nothing happened and 4 Americans died without even attempt from President Obama to stop it.
Here’s Obama’s answer and the video below. You can see the video and transcript here.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we are finding out exactly what happened. I can tell you, as I’ve said over the last couple of months since this happened, the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, we’re going to investigate exactly what happened so that it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice. And I guarantee you that everyone in the state department, our military, the CIA, you name it, had number one priority making sure that people were safe. These were our folks and we’re going to find out exactly what happened, but what we’re also going to do it make sure that we are identifying those who carried out these terrible attacks.
