Via TWS: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified this morning on Capitol Hill that Barack Obama was absent the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.
Penetta goes on to say that there was no communication between he and the White House at all. Video of Panetta's testimony will be below the post.
On 9/11/12, four Americans died in  Benghazi, including the US Ambassador to Libya, and attacks occurred worldwide against US embassies.
On 9/11/12, Barack Obama, according to his schedule posted on the White House website, was in Bethesda, Maryland, then traveled back to the White House.
His schedule for 9/12/12, the next day, as the attacks continued across the Middle East again American embassies, Barack Obama then traveled to a fundraiser in Las Vegas, Nevada. That too can be found on the White website scheduling page.
Yet Panetta claims that he never communicated with Obama, nor anyone in the White House on the night of the 9/11 attacks.
What, was Obama too busy packing or maybe rehearsing his fundraiser speech to bother to communicate with the Defense Secretary of the United States of America in the midst of worldwide terrorist attacks against the US?
