Where Was Obama on the Night of the Benghazi Killings?

Posted on the 07 February 2013 by Brutallyhonest @Ricksteroni

This is stunning to me:

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified this morning on Capitol Hill that President Barack Obama was Panettaabsent 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 siege, "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 what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.

There's video of Panetta's testimony at the link.

I'm hoping this will get wide coverage.  I think it damning.
