Benghazi rescue denied three times


If this report is true, then kiss Obama goodbye. He will have not only failed to adequately protect the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on of all days the anniversary of 9/11, he will also have refused to send in CIA backup to rescue or ambassador and three others, despite three separate requests.

We should all reserve final judgment for now -- our commander in chief deserves at least that benefit of the doubt -- but if this report is in any way true, this will be the final legacy of President Barack Obama's Administration.

PS -- Also remember that the attempt by news organizations friendly with the Obama Administration to report that in the fog of war there was a disconnect between Benghazi and the White House is false. We know from drone surveillance and State Department e-mail that the White House was following the Benghazi fight in real time. The White House therefore would have known about the requests to rescue our people in Benghazi.

PPS -- I will say again what I said yesterday. The president should stop stonewalling on this and hold a press conference with real reporters and answer every question the American people have to the best of his ability. Why he has not done this is a clear indication that he has something very damaging to hide.
