“Commander in Chief” shows off on campaign trail sporting military jacket, nametag

I say again, it should be ripped off his body.  He is not worthy to wear it for he is neither military nor commander in chief.

Yesterday in Wisconsin, wearing his Air Force One military jacket with the name tag “Barack Obama, Commander in Chief”
Disgrace!

Well, where was the commander in chief when American citizens needed him?  I think it would go better for him if he were sleeping because the other alternative is, as is reported, he was watching the Benghazi attack from the Situation Room and did nothing.  They called for help and help never came.

The administration keeps stalling, saying there is an on-going investigation into what happened, when it is obvious that is a lie because the scene of the crime is abandoned with documents and other crucial evidence left behind 6 weeks later.

BENGHAZI, Libya — More than six weeks after the shocking assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi — and nearly a month after an FBI team arrived to collect evidence about the attack – the battle-scarred, fire-damaged compound where Ambassador Chris Stevens and another Foreign Service officer lost their lives on Sept. 11 still holds sensitive documents and other relics of that traumatic final day, including drafts of two letters worrying that the compound was under “troubling” surveillance and complaining that the Libyan government failed to fulfill requests for additional security.

When we visited on Oct. 26 to prepare a story for Dubai based Al Aan TV, we found not only Stevens’s personal copy of the Aug. 6 New Yorker, lying on remnants of the bed in the safe room where Stevens spent his final hours, but several ash-strewn documents beneath rubble in the looted Tactical Operations Center, one of the four main buildings of the partially destroyed compound. Some of the documents — such as an email from Stevens to his political officer in Benghazi and a flight itinerary sent to Sean Smith, a U.S. diplomat slain in the attack — are clearly marked as State Department correspondence.Others are unsigned printouts of messages to local and national Libyan authorities. The two unsigned draft letters are both dated Sept. 11 and express strong fears about the security situation at the compound on what would turn out to be a tragic day. They also indicate that Stevens and his team had officially requested additional security at the Benghazi compound for his visit — and that they apparently did not feel it was being provided.

Obama shakes up the military in October

Looks like obama is exacting revenge? Looking for scapegoats? Since it is impossible for the child president to take responsiblity for anything (except something he thinks helps him) he continues his cover-up.  I am counting at least three military reassignments in October.

Let’s see:

General Allen said though willing to fight, they were not willing to be murdered, referencing insider attacks in Afghanistan.  Replaced.

General Ham decided to try to rescue the Americans under attack in Benghazi, regardless of “StandDown” order.  Apprehended.

Rear Admiral Gaouett, Commander of air craft carrier USS John C. Stennis strike group in the Middle East.  Sent back to home port under allegations of “inappropriate judgment”.

Heads are rolling and it looks like a pattern is forming.

Mutiny?

There is one main head that needs to roll and we’ll take care of that on Nov. 6.

****

Gen. Allen removed from his afghan command.

General John Allen, Commander in Afghanistan, in recent days has voiced frustration about the lethal “insider” attacks by Afghan soldiers and police that have killed 51 U.S. and coalition troops this year.

“I’m mad as hell about them, to be honest with you,” he said, in an interview with “60 Minutes” scheduled to be broadcast Sunday. “It reverberates everywhere across the United States. You know, we’re willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign, but we’re not willing to be murdered for it.”General Joseph Dunford has been nominated as NATO’s new commander in Afghanistan.

U.S. President Barack Obama’s nomination will replace General John Allen, who will now assume the Supreme Allied Commander Europe and Commander of U.S. European Command.

****.

http://patdollard.com/2012/10/did-obama-fire-general-ham-of-africom-for-attempting-to-buck-his-order-and-rescue-stevens/

The information I heard today was that General [Carter] Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.

General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.

The story continues that now General [David] Rodiguez would take General Ham’s place as the head of Africon.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command and Marine Lt. Gen. John Paxton to succeed Gen. Joseph Dunford as assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Thursday.

Both appointments must be confirmed by the Senate.

WASHINGTON — The Navy said Saturday it is replacing the admiral in command of an aircraft carrier strike group in the Middle East, pending the outcome of an internal investigation into undisclosed allegations of inappropriate judgment.

Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette is being sent back to the USS John C. Stennis’ home port at Bremerton, Wash., in what the Navy called a temporary reassignment.

Obama’s effect on military families – in their own words:

Obama interviewed on Friday by radio host, Michael Smerconish – Benghazi cover-up continues

Related – EXPOSED: Hillary Asked For More Security In Benghazi, Murderer-By-Negligence Obama Said No

Excerpted from Fox News: President Obama said Friday he was “not personally aware” of any request for more security by U.S. diplomats in Libya before the Sept. 11 strike on the consulate.

The president addressed questions about those requests during an interview on “The Michael Smerconish Show.” Several weeks ago, former security officers testified on Capitol Hill that they had sought additional protection in the months leading up to the attack — further, a recently released cable from Ambassador Chris Stevens himself on the day of the attack noted “growing problems with security” in Benghazi.

“I was not personally aware of any request,” Obama said Friday, adding that there is an “infrastructure” in place to “manage requests.”

“Ultimately, though, any time there is a death of an American overseas, I want to find out what happened because my most important job as president is keeping the American people safe, and we will get to the bottom of what happened,” he said.

The White House had previously indicated that the State Department dealt with requests for security. That hasn’t stopped lawmakers from pressing the administration for more information. House Speaker John Boehner, in a letter Thursday, raised concerns about documented “security problems” in the country before the attack and asked when was the last time Obama was briefed by Stevens.

Stevens was killed along with three other Americans in that strike. In addition to concerns about security requests that were denied in the months leading up to the attack, sources have also told Fox News that a request for back-up from those at the CIA annex on site was also denied on the night of the attack.

Obama said Friday he “absolutely” plans to take action against whoever is responsible for the attack.

“My biggest priority right now is bringing those folks to justice and I think the American people have seen that’s a commitment I always keep,” Obama said. He also said he wants to make sure “they are captured” — without saying whether he would prefer they be captured, as opposed to killed.

Obama went on to defend his administration’s handling of the attack after the fact. As other officials have said, Obama said public statements made at the time about the nature of the attack were based on initial intelligence — and that nobody was playing politics.

Story from:  Pat Dollard – The War Starts Here http://alturl.com/h7j2g

He is making a point not to give a press conference and not to go on the MSM to try keep the public from being informed until after the election.  AND THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS HELPING HIM COVER IT UP.  NEW YORK TIMES IGNORES IN MASSIVE MEDIA CORRUPTION.  As Pat Caddell said last night, “the media is an enemy of the American people.”   I will add that so is our (soon to be ex-) president.

It is annoying beyond words to hear him refer to the savages who killed our people “those folks”.

Shaking hands with Obama – “Like shaking hands with a dead fish” says dead SEALS father

Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, who was killed in the 9/11 terrorist attack at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, reveals details of meeting Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton at the publicly broadcast memorial service for the slain Americans at Andrews Air Force Base only days after the attack. And, in a recent radio appearance, Woods publicly questions who made the call not to send in back-up forces to possibly save his son’s life, as well as the three other Americans killed in Benghazi (which includes the American ambassador to Libya).

“When [Obama] came over to our little area” at Andrew Air Force Base, says Woods, “he kind of just mumbled, you know, ‘I’m sorry.’ His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere, ‘I’m really sorry, you know, that you’re son died,’ but it was totally insincere, more of whining type, ‘I’m sorry.’”

Woods says that shaking President Obama’s hands at his son’s memorial service was “like shaking hands with a dead fish.”

“It just didn’t feel right,” he says of his encounter with the commander in chief. “And now that it’s coming out that apparently the White House situation room was watching our people die in real time, as this was happening,” Woods says, he wants answers on what happened—and why there was no apparent effort to save his son’s life.

Self-professed ringleader of Benghazi attack free and bragging, video producer sits in jail in Obama’s America

BENGHAZI, Libya — Witnesses and the authorities have called Ahmed Abu Khattala one of the ringleaders of the Sept. 11 attack on the American diplomatic mission here. But just days after President Obama reasserted his vow to bring those responsible to justice, Mr. Abu Khattala spent two leisurely hours on Thursday evening at a crowded luxury hotel, sipping a strawberry frappe on a patio and scoffing at the threats coming from the American and Libyan governments.

So we have a man who has admitted to being one of the RINGLEADERS of the attack that killed four Americans in Libya, now sits on a balcony somewhere bragging about it.

Meanwhile, the guy who produced some silly little you tube video that had only a handful of views before somebody decided to use it as a diversion and cover-up, is now still sitting in a jail cell, not to be released until three days after the election.

This is obama’s America.  And nobody is safe.

Congressional oversight committee tries to get some answers from administration on Benghazi

Below is an excerpt of the letter sent to the president by the Oversight Committee.  Also a link to the documents and photos that were attached to the letter.  I like it when I can find the original documents so that nothing has to be filtered through the corrupt left wing media or anyone, for that matter.

Just a note about what I hear about obama being offended at being questioned about this = who cares if he is offended.  And as far as “politicizing” it, the hell with that, too.  What happened here was political, the lies and coverup was political, the phoney rushed up service at the airport where obama watched the “caskets” (empty I’m guessing) come off the plane was political, the set-up at the debate with Candy and obama colluding was political.  And do you think for one minute that if this were a republican president and something even close to this event happened that the democrats and their mouthpiece the corrupt media would not be politicizing it day and night and twilight?

The TRUTH is not political and that’s what we must have to get to the bottom of this, why Americans were left unprotected and sitting ducks in such a hostile country.  Those responsible must be held accountablee, no question about that.

They don’t get to make things up and then say let’s just move along.

So “offend” somebody is the very least of it and I have heard  enough of thin skinned people being offended over nothing or something or whatever. The $75,000 advertisment being spent for an ad to further  apologize for some obscure and stupid film is outrageous, especially now that the president said he called it an act of terror on the 12th of September.  Of course, he did not, but even if he did that makes his actions following even worse.  He first of all went to bed, then got up and went to Las Vegas to campaign, not knowing whether there might be more attacks coming,  whether it may be a larger plot, that the mainland might be in danger?  And I find out now that they were watching the whole thing in realtime! And did nothing!

We have a president who cannot be trusted, who lies when he opens hs mouth, who thinks about himself first and foremost, who is quick to take credit for anything he thinks will help him, and even quicker to blame somebody else for everything else.  He is a childish man devoid of character who speaks down to the people as if we will believe any dumbass thing he puts out.

So, anyway, for those who like to dig out the facts for themselves, this is from the horse’s mouth.

WASHINGTON –Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and National Security Subcommittee Chairman Jason Chaffetz today sent President Obama a letter and 166 pages of documents related to security threats and the process of ‘normalization’ in Libya.  The letter requests that the White House respond to questions about its role in the controversial decision to have the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya pursue a course of ‘normalization’ that was intended to help create the perception of success in Libya and contrast it to U.S. operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Excerpts of the letter from Chairman Issa and Rep. Chaffetz: Information supplied to the committee by senior officials demonstrates that not only did the administration repeatedly reject requests for increased security despite escalating violence, but it also systematically decreased existing security to dangerous and ineffective levels. We have been told repeatedly that the administration did this to effectuate a policy of ‘normalization’ in Libya after the conclusion of its civil war.  These actions not only resulted in extreme vulnerability, but also undermined Ambassador Stevens and the diplomatic mission.” “Multiple warnings about security threats were contained in Ambassador Stevens’ own words in multiple cables sent to Washington, D.C., and were manifested by two prior bombings of the Benghazi compound and an assassination attempt on the British ambassador.  For this administration to assume that terrorists were not involved in the 9/11 anniversary attack would have required a willing suspension of disbelief.”“The American people deserve nothing less than a full explanation from this administration about these events, including why the repeated warnings about a worsening security situation appear to have been ignored by this administration. Americans also deserve a complete explanation about your administration’s decision to accelerate a normalized presence in Libya at what now appears to be at the cost of endangering American lives.  These critical foreign policy decisions are not made by low or mid-level career officials – they are typically made through a structured and well-reasoned process that includes the National Security Council at the White House.”  http://alturl.com/4v5xp

Also, he is the first president to lie so much.  He lies, then it is exposed and everybody knows he’s lying but he continues to repeat the same lie.  People the world over know the attack in Libya was not caused by a film nobody even heard of, yet this week obama repeats this lie that it was before the United Nations.

The administration said the FBI was investigating the attack.  It’s not even a “crime” in the sense the FBI should be investigating it, but just today it is revealed that the FBI has not even reached Libya yet and the “crime scene” is still unsecured.  This is just a waste at this point

The president of the United States is campaigning in Virginia today while world leaders are in the country and he has not met with any of them.  He is campaigning on our time and on our dime – against the law.  The law means nothing to this man, unless he is imposing it on others..  A man with a dictator heart.
