More Ducking, Evading, and Lies

Obama’s duck and run, evade and lie traits are in full swing during these last days before the election.
Obama would not directly address questions from 9NEWS on whether Americans under attack in Libya were denied requests for assistance during the September 11th terror attack.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Friday that the military did not send immediate help to the consulate in Benghazi because commanders lacked enough information about the ongoing attack to put troops in harm’s way.

President Obama discussed the situation in Libya during a satellite interview Friday afternoon with 9NEWS reporter Kyle Clark, who also asked if it’s fair for Americans to be told to wait until after the election to learn what truly happened in Libya.

“The election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened,” President Obama said. “Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do.”
President Obama was directly asked twice whether pleas for help on the ground in Libya were denied during the attack. Both times, he repeated his standard call for a thorough investigation.
KYLE CLARK: Were the Americans under attack at the consulate in Benghazi Libya denied requests for help during that attack? And is it fair to tell Americans that what happened is under investigation and we’ll all find out after the election?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, the election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened. These are folks who served under me who I had sent to some very dangerous places. Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do. But we want to make sure we get it right, particularly because I have made a commitment to the families impacted as well as to the American people, we’re going to bring those folks to justice. So, we’re going to gather all the facts, find out exactly what happened, and make sure that it doesn’t happen again but we’re also going to make sure that we bring to justice those who carried out these attacks.

KYLE CLARK: Were they denied requests for help during the attack?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we are finding out exactly what happened. I can tell you, as I’ve said over the last couple of months since this happened, the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, we’re going to investigate exactly what happened so that it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice. And I guarantee you that everyone in the state department, our military, the CIA, you name it, had number one priority making sure that people were safe. These were our folks and we’re going to find out exactly what happened, but what we’re also going to do it make sure that we are identifying those who carried out these terrible attacks.

    Everyone that believe Obama stand on your head. I have never send or heard of a President that would lie like Obama or disregard the question or give some exuse. From what I have seen and read the last 3-1/2 years Obama is not for the America we know he wants a Communist America where he can be the Big Dog and call every shot with no questions ask. I pray that we will send him back to where he came from

  • He’s not answering the question!! WHY NOT??!!??

  • obama’s a liar and a traitor to America. They knew within 2 hrs that it was a terrorist attack and they just let our fellow Americans die. He should stand trial for treason and be punished to the fullest extent of the law. We all know that won’t happen though.

  • At what point does a cover up become a crime? Watergate was something Nixon didn’t even know about at the time it was discoverd. What caused the impeachment was Nixons attempt to cover up what happened and the fact they destroyed evidence.
    What Obama is doing is even worse. American lives were lost and there is mounting proof he knew what was happening as it was happening. Penetta lie about there was no ” stand down” is disgusting. A drone videoed what was going on in real time. Who ordered the drone and why? Whay wasn’t a quick response team sent in? Even if it wasn’t needed it would give our enemy the knowledge that we protect out sovereign soil. Obama needs to own up to his responsibility. The fact that the White House situation room, the Pentegon, the NSA and and the CIA all watched this in real time and did nothing. It is horrible to watch. We lost citizens because we have an incometent President with an incompetent administration. Then they cover it up with a bald face lie about a video. No one can even figure out where they got the video thing from. Vote Obama out and then charge and prosecute them all.

    In all the years since D-Day 1945, there are only three occasions when the sitting President of the United States of America failed to go to the D-Day Monument that honors the soldiers killed during the Invasion.

    Only Three Times…

    The occasions were:

    1. Barack Obama 2010

    2. Barack Obama 2011

    3. Barack Obama 2012

    For the past 68 years, every single president, except Obama, has paid tribute to the fallen American soldiers killed on D-Day.
    This year, instead of honoring the soldiers, he made a 3,000 mile campaign trip on Air Force 1 to California to raise funds for the upcoming election.
    Priorities? – – It speaks volumes… doesn’t it?
