Where Was President Barack Obama During Benghazi?–Already Updated

It’s offensive to ask where Barack spent the Benghazi debacle, nee terrorist attack on September 11, 2012, because, dammit. [Video here.]

The reason the White House won’t answer the question about where Obama was during Benghazi is because it speaks ill of him either way:

1. He was in the situation room the whole time and denied aid to our people dying in Benghazi.


2. He went to bed (or some other recreational activity) which would be interpreted as a dereliction of duty and reflect poorly on him.

If the buck stops at him (it does no matter where he was), he’s in trouble.

The buck stopping anywhere else during this fiasco makes him look like an impotent rube.

As Ed Morrisey says:


You should know that reading to children for seven minutes and then getting to a secured location is totally like going to Vegas, baby!

And the press will nod affirmatively and with full credulity.

    Thanks for hammering this point, Melissa. I think it’s something we need to know to understand why things played out the tragic way they did in Benghazi.

  • Just some guy laughing at this

    You’ve got no proof that he “went back to bed”. Fact is, nobody has any proof he did such a thing.

    Burden of proof always lies on the accuser. Till then it’s all hot air and bullshit.

    Recently I was REALLY low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!!! – 3e68
