Follow author Subscribe to author feedObama took to the cameras for a quasi press conference to play president in an attempt to deflect the growing cacophony of condemnation and questioning pursuant to his handling (or lack thereof) of Benghazi.
We don’t need the president to tell people to stay indoors, stock up on bottled water, make sure we have plenty of batteries and canned food on hand, and to follow the instructions of emergency workers. That’s the job of the mayors and governors of the states in the path of Superstorm Sandy.
What we need from Obama we will never get. We need him to tell us why he allowed Libyan Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty to die.
In my Sept. 19, 2012, evening update, which is published daily, in my very first public comments referencing the Benghazi attacks I wrote: ” There is more here than meets the eye. I have my suspicions as to the answers to the questions I’m asking, and, if I’m right, Obama and [Hillary] Clinton are worse than anything we could have remotely suspected.”
In fairness, I must applaud the work being done by Fox News reporters Catherine Herridge and Jennifer Griffin who are doing career-defining jobs in their coverage and investigation of the murderous Islamic attack – but even they have yet to ask the two-part question I have been asking from the first moment I learned of the attack.
The question is not why did Obama, et al., move to cover up and obfuscate the circumstances surrounding the attack.
The question is why was Stevens allowed to be killed – and why were Smith, Woods and Doherty allowed to become collateral fatalities? That is the question we need answered. That is the question the media aren’t asking.
Obama and Hillary Clinton can do the “two of a kind” two-step, but the fact remains there isn’t a snowball’s chance in the desert that they didn’t know and sign off on Stevens being kept in mortal danger. I know that is something Obama sycophants and those unfamiliar with how political decisions are made will dispute, so be it – the fact still remains that no one runs the risk of this becoming a presidential embarrassment without the Oval Office and State Department being consulted first.
My suspicions are that Christopher Stevens, who had a long, personal history with Obama, either knew something he wasn’t supposed to and/or he was about to become an embarrassment/threat to Obama.
I didn’t make up the facts. Governments take better care of their ambassadors and consulate staffs than I do my handmade, ostrich-skin dress shoes. The British had removed their consulate people, and Stevens had been requesting help in the face of deteriorating conditions – but still Obama and Clinton chose to keep Stevens there in a worsening situation that was certain to (and in fact did) lead to death.
Woods, Smith and Doherty were told to stand down when they requested help. They were ordered no less than three times to stand down when they indicated their intentions pursuant to getting Stevens and themselves out alive. Why? Woods and Doherty were former SEALs; they weren’t shout-and-shoot weekend warriors.
The wrong questions are being asked by the small handful of reporters like Herridge and Griffin who are willing to dig for the truth. We don’t need politicians who are only interested in face-time on the evening news and sound bites attributed to them. We need action – we need the truth.
I contend that every investigation and search for truth must begin with the question, “Why was Stevens allowed to die, and why were Smith, Woods and Doherty set up to be collateral damage?”
If Stevens wasn’t placed in a situation to die, then why wasn’t he pulled out when the British pulled their people? Why did Obama and Clinton ignore warnings issued by Israel and the Libyan interim president? Why were the personal requests by Stevens, pleading for help, ignored? Since when does the official representative of the president of the United States drive around in a hot zone in what amounts to the same SUV you and I drive? Why wasn’t he in a secure vehicle and accompanied by Marines?
There was no question but that Smith, Woods and Doherty were going to be killed regardless of whether or not they stood down as ordered. There was no way any of the four were getting out alive.
Obama, Biden and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta were huddled in Obama’s office approximately 90 minutes after the attack began. There were two predator drones sending real-time live feeds back to anyone with a computer and a mid-range security clearance. Are we really supposed to believe they weren’t watching those men die?
I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I know government, and I know military. And seeing Obama sprint to the cameras and teleprompters to tell us that which our mayors and governors are in office to do is not presidential.
It is the exaggerated behavior of a man watching his presidency being flushed down the toilet of history.

Why I Do Not Like The Obama’s – by Mychal Massie
Best Summation of Barack & Michelle ever…from…Mychal Massie
The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed their Christmas family pic.”
The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation.
I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.
I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagans made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?
Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry and they display an animus for civility.
I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites, because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.
I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.
And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He has fought for abortion procedures and opposed rulings that protected women and children, that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His wife treats being the First Lady, as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.
I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.
Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin, it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their playing the race card.
It is my intention to do all within my ability to ensure their reign is one term. I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.
As I wrote in a syndicated column titled “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood … Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America’s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”
