And now we understand Romney’s NO LIBYA policy in the debate Monday

If the other side is committing suicide, don’t get involved.
Romney HAD TO HAVE KNOWN this storm was coming. This leak has to have been from the republican investigation staff of Issa’s committee. Reuter’s says point blank the emails came from a source which is NOT in the intelligence or executive community.
Now, CBS News has obtained email alerts that were put out by the State Department as the attack unfolded. Four Americans were killed in the attack, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
These emails contain the earliest description so far of what happened at Benghazi the night of the attack.
The emails went to the White House, as well as NSC, and Hillary’s Office.
They are HERE
Both CBS and Reuters obtained them.
Here is the money timeline:
At 4:05 p.m. Eastern time, on September 11, an alert from the State Department Operations Center was issued to a number government and intelligence agencies. Included were the White House Situation Room, the office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the FBI.
“US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack” — “approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM (Chief of Mission/embassy) personnel are in the compound safe haven.”
At 4:54 p.m., less than an hour later, another alert: “the firing… in Benghazi…has stopped…A response team is on site attempting to locate COM (embassy) personnel.”
Then, at 6:07 p.m., State sent out another alert saying the embassy in Tripoli reported the Islamic military group “Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibilty for Benghazi Attack”… “on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli.”
So within 2 hours everyone in a position to DO SOMETHING knew or should have known everything they needed to know to TAKE ACTION even if that action was to put a squadron of F-18’s in the air, and an AC-130 with instructions to stay tuned for more.
Now I am sure Barack Hamlet Obama will respond by saying someone dropped the ball, and the pres didn’t know, and they will investigate and correct to ensure that way of THEM doing things cannot be repeated. But that’s a crock of haram baloney.
It is the president’s RESPONSIBILITY to BE INFORMED of something like this. It is the president’s RESPONSIBILITY to be prepared to ACT immediately when informed.
It is inconceivably critical to the nation’s well being that this NERO be sent back to getting renters and homeowners in trouble together, to assault by organized community action some bank or landlord.

This should decide the election not in Obama's favor. Will it?

All these details won't matter if Hillary resigns and thereby takes all the blame. Now, will she do so?

Pastorius said...

I get what you're saying. The media would accept Hilary as the Sacrificial Lamb.

But, it does not make sense because Hilary is not in charge of deciding whether or not to use our military in response.

That would fall to Obama.

And, he did nothing.

Therefore, according to reason, he is the one who should resign.

AS awful as this is, this is not the issue of this election.
It may be a tipping point issue IF and only If Romney-Ryan can msg that Obama is just NOT the man for this job.

Are they?
I don't see that. Not Yet. 13 days

Pastorius said...

It is not clear what you mean by the question you pose?

Are you asking if Romney and Ryan are the "man for the job"?

Or are you asking if Obama is the man for the job?
