Obama Absent Night of Benghazi

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified this morning on Capitol Hill that President Barack Obama was absent the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.

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.

Hillary Absent During Benghazi Attack Also

Neither the secretary of defense nor the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke to the secretary of state during the 8-hour attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. At a Thursday hearing in the Senate, Republican Ted Cruz asked both Leon Panetta and Martin Dempsey, "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 here I thought Obama was watching the whole thing live in the Situation Room and chose to do nothing.

You guys need to get your Obama-bashing straight.

Thats why we are scratching our heads. We have heard he was there, we have heard he wasn't there, what is the true story? Also if Panetta now telling the truth about it why didn't Obama check in or get to the White House to handle business?

Nobama has been absent for most of his political career.

One of the highest percentages of voting present of any lib.

Nothing new with this instance.

That's great. Panetta, is apparently, covering for for his soon-to-be-ex boss...
