‘Dude, this was like two years ago’: Former WH spokesman’s unbelievable response when pressed about Benghazi

After listening to Tommy Vietor respond to Bret Baier’s questions about the newly released Benghazi emails like a petulant child, it is no wonder he is a former White House national security spokesman.

On Thursday’s edition of Fox News’ Special Report, Baier asked Vietor about the role he played in altering the talking points following the September 2012 terrorist attack that killed four Americans. The former spokesman, who apparently had no good answer to the question, flippantly responded: “Dude, this was like two years ago.”

Watch the bizarre exchange below:

“That’s unbelievable, dude,” Glenn quipped. “First of all, we have a guy who works in the White House that says ‘dude’? We’ve come to that point? Dude. Really? Hey, put the surfboard down for just a second, and let’s have a conversation. We’re talking about people who died… Dude, you could go to jail. How about that one?”

The emails released by Judicial Watch on Tuesday reveals what appears to be a coordinated effort to portray the Benghazi terror attacks as the result of a YouTube video in order to minimize the political fallout and protect President Obama ahead of the November 2012 presidential election.

The White House has claimed the information in the emails mean nothing. If that is the case, Baier asked Vietor why it took Judicial Watch 18 months to obtain the documents. While Vietor again had no real answer for the question, he did reiterate the emails don’t reveal any new information.

“Dude, let me give you a wake-up call. The other reason why they’re not going after the IRS and everybody else that is involved in this stuff is because the GOP, dude, likes it as well. And so then you’re going to have the Lindsey Grahams and the John McCains and the Mitch McConnells, dude, coming after you,” Glenn explained. “So you like it, dude, when they’re coming after us, dude. But the other side will come after you, dude. So dude, maybe you should care a little bit. Maybe you should care a little bit. Maybe you should wake up and help dismantle this nightmare that we have constructed over the last 10 years. Dude.”

“You’re talking about something like two years ago,” Pat joked. “I can’t remember what I had for breakfast.”

Glenn sounds off about Vietor’s remarks below:

  • Anonymous

    Me thinks if he was still employed as a spokesperson by the NSC (he left over a year ago), he never would have been permitted to appear on Fox. Instead he now works as an former insider consultant selling indulgences and favor currying opportunities in the waning days of the Obama Administration. “Fenway Associates” indeed–giving Boston Strong a bad name, you spoiled brat.
    When you are a teenager, you really do not appreciate the impact of your words, so perhaps, like that clown on MSNBC, Chis Hayes, Vietor’s sins can be excused– for he looks and acts like he is 15. But he is not. When you are young political hanger on, and lack any real world experience other than that, you are clueless how “real people” outside of the neo-Ivy League world think. Talk about tone deaf. To equilibrate “bureaucratic editing” to an Ambassador’s talking points on the death of American foreign service personnel in a terrorist attack is beyond belief.
    Dude? On national TV? How do you think that Frat boy logic is going to work out for you now?

  • Jayne Nielsen

    Vietor’s response was grossly inappropriate but what is more and MOST appalling is his cavalier attitude about what happened in Benghazi and about the four Americans that were MURDERED on Obama’s watch! But no one should be surprised because ever since this tragedy occurred, the entire Obama Administration’s attitude has been dismissive and cavalier (“What difference does it make?” Hillary Clinton) and now Piglosi has thrown her dimwitted two-cents into the pit.

    As I wrote on another blog site, instead of (back) washing the feet of illegal aliens Piglosi should wash her mouth out with hemlock.

    It has been approximately two years. The White House has admitted to mistakes and misstating what happened. But of course the Republicans will only stop asking about Benghazi when there’s no Democrat in office. In the meantime White House has been shoring up security in our deplomatic offices around the world as they should be. They have been defending the United States against Al Qaeda as they should be. What have the Republicans been doing outside of complaining about losing the election? Even if they believe the White House was lying about who was attacking in Libya for political reasons, they can’t prove it, and it really doesn’t matter now.

    Folks the end result to Fast and Furious was MURDER – Benghazi – it is also a Murder investigation that was or is for fact a cover up of justice. Its okay to say the word…Murder investigation.

    “Someone(s) Adult child is dead! Someones(s) loving Husband and Father is Dead and for one singular vote or millions they Top Down deserve justice”!

    What matters is how you frame a message in a time of national crisis. Team Obama framed it in a way that made them (in their minds only) look better to the electorate; and to set up the distance between that insane video and the real cause. it reeks of political neophytes handiwork at best; or rather a complete lack of leadership at best; disrespectful to the American people and disingenuous. Obama was the CEO of Team America; his Exec. VP was Hilary Clinton–on their watch, four men were killed. Man up and accept responsibility from day 1 and there is no controversy. Try to be cute with junior press people and Under Secretaries doing your spin and expect the wrath of God in return. Be a leader not a politician and these problems do not happen.
    You know there are allegations that Kennedy was ginning up the game for the Cuban Missile Crisis for his political benefit (which if true was deplorable); when his cold feet on the Bay of Pigs resulted in lost lives, at least he took the microphone and admitted responsibility (even if ultimately it was for his political gain). Obama and Hillary never took full responsibility. She blamed Congressional budget cuts, which were an issue for sure. While Fox et al continued to beat the drum on this story, it never should have been a story–if there had been accountability and straight talk from day 1.

    It’s interesting that there are allegations that Kennedy used the Cuban Missile Crisus for his political benefit. I find that absurd.

    You may have suspicions about what all happened concerning Benghazi, but there is no proof of anything. I think it’s ridiculous to keep griping about “full responsibility” since the conservatives have every incentive to keep griping no matter what. Griping about Benghazi is political and doesn’t settle anything.

    Snotty baby face Tommy Vietor “DUDE, THIS WAS LIKE TWO YEARS AGO!!” learned his lessons well by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? WHAT DIFFERENCE AT THIS POINT DOES IT MAKE?” He must have thought what was good for the goose was good for the gander.

    As Kennedy no longer is able to affect our current political climate, his actions are not as vital to discuss as those who can affect us today. It has zero to do with political affiliation. It has everything to do with taking responsibility for our actions.
    Benghazi is valid to keep in the forefront today because those who created the situation are very much alive. For each person who has a job to do on foreign land, the expectation has been that we, back here on the home front, would do all we can to keep them safe. Speaking of it honestly will help us focus on the changes we need to make to keep others, who are still alive and working in foreign lands, safe.
    We have proof. People are dead.

    I THINK THERE’s a lot of responsibility to be taken for the understanding of our diplomatic missions. There were budget considerations as well as miscalculations. Where was House oversight before the attack? I want accountability for continuing the tying up of Congressional action this late in the game. Republicans have already made their point. They are just using Benghazi as political fodder which does nothing to respect the dead. Harassing the administration over the timing and accuracy of their press releases is not doing the security of people abroad any good. The only “honesty” the conservatives want is whatever will help them politically. I don’t care for any truth except what is being done to correct problems, and finger-pointing is not doing that.

  • Rob Wolgemuth

    This is unbelievable. We have a supposed news organization that dedicates whole pages to these stories, or lack thereof. We’ve come to this point? A whole article on his use of the word “dude” and only mentions on the side why it was even messed up at all given the context. This is the same problem, making trivial and humorous the Benghazi scandal, but simply an extra step out from the center.

  • Chris Parker

    The sad part is that this was a rather obvious attempt at sensationalizing Glenn Beck show. Ok so it’s a bit impolitic to say “Dude” on the news, but what he was saying was rather obvious:

    He was asked if he changed a specific word in a specific speech that took place 2 years ago. That’s akin to asking a mechanic if he touched a specific bolt on a specific engine with a specific wrench to years ago. That’s not something someone remembers because it’s the mundane that repeated thousands of times.

    Would it be nice to get our answers straight and fast without the word “Dude” yes, but in this case the man obviously wasnt trying to trivialize anything, but rather the relatively young man was saying “Dude…how the HECK am I supposed to remember something like that from so long ago?”

    …just saying. This was good showmanship on the sites part, exactly as CNN and FOX do.

    I find it personally frightening that the white house would hire someone as young and impetuous as Mr. Vietor to manage ANYTHING. How does such a person rise to the positions he’s held? He has no real background and nothing but petulant defiance to offer as explanations, along with the same “memory loss” that infests the rest of Obama’s advisors. Of course, they can remember perfectly that this talking points memo had absolutely nothing to do with Benghazi. After all, they ALWAYS classify and redact trash that has absolutely nothing incriminating about the event in question, then fight it out in court trying to prevent its release. It’s a matter of “principle” after all.

    It’s nice to finally hear though that Obama did not consider such a thing as the murder of American citizens as worthy of his time in the White House situation room. After all, there was probably a basketball game on and we’re only talking about the deaths of peasants, not elites. So who cares?

    I think we should call the Muslim’s and let them damn him to hell like they did the Seals in Extortion 17. That needs to be cleared up just as much as Benghazi. There are a lot of parents, children, spouses and siblings wanting to know why Joe Biden announced who killed OBL and then shortly after their helicopter was targeted. There are so many horrible things involved in that. I bet Benghazi will be the lesser of 2 evils in the way of treasonous crimes committed by this potus and his gang.

    Why should they? After all, none of those people were important, they were just military. A bunch of ignorant jarheads who deserved to die for their warmongering ways, according to the left. Why anyone would even make a fuss over the loss of such people is incomprehensible to the typical leftist. We always hear, “those who live by the sword deserve to die by the sword” from these patriots. Gee, I wish I could be just like them. Of course, I’d have to abandon any pretense of moral behavior and thought as well as my IQ.

    Its not about party anymore; the narrative has been crafted about ideology. This is about right & wrong… about integrity and a person giving their word to “support & defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign & domestic” and if you dismiss that part of the oath you took, then be a leader and STAND UP MAN and defend your country [men/women]! Right now, if you can stand outside the narrative, and look at it, wrong is right/right is wrong and judgment/justice is based on situational ethics… not moral, right, or even just plain, common actions of Humanity.
    You speak of the Republicansand their constant witch-hunts and complaining…. well, all is true & rightly so. Their are varying degrees of Progressivity is in both party’s blood, except a select few whom have remained true to our bedrock principles nor sold their souls to the system that claims so many.
    The issue is: who will lead, recognize wrong-doings, and attempt to correct them because they know the facts/record speak for themselves?
    If this was the real Republican Party…. they would be the party of NO, be leaders, stand and fight for every inch of morally right ground, and even the lost causes….
    Because what was done, or not done, was criminal, violated their [the men that died] honor that we, the people that elected these so-called leaders to act for US on our behalf, and promised “we got your back”. They violated a sacred trust. The Commander-In-Chief was in bed, in the residence, and didn’t want to be bothered by matters of State or Defense, went back to sleep, and in that moment, told the world by his actions alone, “America will not act out anymore.” This world, by not just this act alone or spoken words off hot mic, have placed US in the field for “open season” where before we were poised atop Little Round Top… the check valve…. now, quickly approaching 1937 again; a dangerous and out of balance world.

    “WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE” Our highest office in The Nation has allowed a; PEACHED FACED LITTLE BOY TO MIND THE STORE!
    Tommy Vietor is in The Situation Room, in The White House monitoring information as it comes in.
    Wait a Minute, A U.S. EMBASSY, in Libya is being attacked and many of our people are being severely injured, and 4 of our U.S. Citizens are being murdered, one being A U.S. STATES AMBASSADOR………….
    OH LOOK! Where’s the POTUS during this Emergency, he’s not in the situation room monitoring this serious Attack, Tommy is minding the store???………….
    Here it is approx. 20 months later and we still don’t know where The POTUS was.
    I know where I was on that day it happened, I was glued to my TV, watching the crisis in my living room, in Florida, because it disturbed me that no one had gone to help those poor individuals.
    I have been involved ever since, waiting for the “TRUTH” of what really happened that Sept. 11, 2012.
    I’m not getting paid to care, I’m not running for Political Office, In fact, I’ve never been to Washington D.C……………….
    I’m just a U.S. CITIZEN who cares, and I want to know exactly what happened and why 4 young men had to die for Our Country and why so many people want to “SWEEP” all of the facts of that terrible night, “UNDER THE RUG”?
    Our POTUS’s Administration, including his private Media has been very busy covering up all Truth’s concerning that night and all I want to know is “WHY”???……
    It couldn’t be to go on with Government business, because no one has really wanted to work on Government business, since The POTUS in question took up residence in The White House, nothing substantial has been done in Our Government.
    But of course, we all know it has to be The Republican’s and FNC’s fault, it couldn’t be because of The Dereliction of Duty, by The Obama Administration…………..

    There was no coverup that there were four dead Americans. The accusation is that the Obama Administration was covering up that it was an Al Qaeda attack. The accusers seemed to think that President Obama would know from the first moment of the attack who the attackers were. There is no proof that the supposition that it was a spontaneous riot over the video was meant to be a coverup. It was a logical first thought since there were riots in Cairo over that video.

Dude, pray I never encounter you because I’m willing to go to jail for kicking the living dog cr(a)p out of that smug arrogant smarmy face of yours and leave you with out any teeth in your head for the rest of your life!

    Hello tipoff77! I would encourage outraged Americans over Beghazai to go to “foroursons.us” website. It was mounted by Billy and Karen Vaughn, parents of Elite Navy Seal Aaron Vaughn who was killed on 8/6/11, with 30 American troops, when their Chinook chopper was shot down in Afghanistan. Mr. Vaughn wrote the book “Betrayed,” and I had the honor to meet them here in NH when they were touring to talk about their effort and research to obtain documentation about what happened. “Betrayed” came out of Billy’s discovery and you will be horrified. Honestly, we must not keep wringing our hands and crying buckets. It is time for action. My son just graduated from Marine Boot Camp. I’m proud of his decision and want him to serve his country, as so many in my family have. BUT… I DON’T WANT him or any of our military sacrificed at the hands of traitors to our nation. Look what has happened twice at Ft. Hood, and look who is being tended to and who are left out in the cold.

    We all must grasp these American Military statistics:
    2001-112/31/08 (7 years) – 630 deaths, 2,638 wounded
    2009-12/31/12 (4 years) – 1,544 deaths, 15,036 wounded

    It is my belief that Obama is taking our young military, putting them in with the enemy, and letting them be slaughtered in order to rid and weaken our nation further. Obama is aiding and abetting our enemies not only with our military but with money and weapons. The Vaughns’ have documented in their book that the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is basically in charge of our military efforts there and sitting in on all discussions. Where are the leaders of our military that will refuse to disobey their oath to our nation, and stand and protect those that are under their charge at all costs??? They should be storming the White House.

    Thanks for your commentary too, and thanks for any effort you give to support the Vaugh’s in sending your friends to their site to listen to their heartbreaking story.

    First, your ignorance of how the military works is apparent. No military deployment was made to ensure the ambassador would have an escape plan in place. They could have stationed a ship with a helicopter offshore, and at the first sign of trouble they could have removed him from the area. He did not have to die, but this administration did nothing to protect it’s people in hostile territory. They neglected to do their duty, and when the Ambassador and the other three men were executed by the enemy, this administration was guilty of murder by not doing anything to prevent it. Then they lied about it when questions began to be asked. They lied, and then lied about the lies. Lies upon lies and contradictions and more lies. They lied to congress, they lied to the media, and now they are lying to you. Then along comes dude boy who lies some more and then tells the truth when he says that the president was not in the situation room during the attack – and he knew that because he was there himself and didn’t see the president all night during the 8 hour battle.

  • Bill Tilghman

    There is no delegating his duties during crises. Being in command during this kind of thing isn’t optional. The consulate was under attack for nearly eight hours, and he and Killary were both absent without leave. There is no justifiable reason for them to both be incommunicado during something like that. It is criminal negligence pure and simple. THAT is how he laughed off their deaths – and with that damned video lie he told the families of the slain when their flag draped caskets arrived at Andrews. Unconscionable and blantant lies – all of it.

    They have both spent most of their time since then covering their misdeeds up. That is why they are engaging in this present misinformation campaign now.

    It was in the media that I read the rumors about Benghazi being used to run guns to the Syrian rebels. It makes no sense that President Obama who was criticized for not delivering on his promise to send weapons to the Syrian rebels, would have sent the weapons secretly. Now maybe somebody in Libya maybe did send weapons on the Libyan ship “Victory” to the port in Turkey were they may have been sent to the Syrian rebels, but none of that is confirmed, and there is no proven connection to the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. And what this had to do with President Obama I can’t imagine. What was President Obama’s crime if he had been fulfilling his promise to the Syrian rebels when the conservatives have been criticizing him for not taking a more definite stand on Syria?

    We had diplomatic relations with Libya. We had the right to defend our consulate. That consulate by international law was U.S.territory. The forces guarding the embassy were not allowed to leave their posts. They had to protect the embassy. It’s not the failure to protect the consulate that the President denies. It’s a cover-up of the knowledge that Al Qaeda attacked it that the President denies. The Administration thought it was a riot similar to the riots in Cairo. The Administration did admit they were mistaken about that.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Absolutely correct, Obama hasn’t got the strength of character to admit even the slightest of mistakes, and this event is of a nature that can never be forgiven. He in effect ordered the deaths of all on the ground at that facility. He may as well have been leading the charge.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Actually it makes perfect sense that he would choose to do that which he does not have the courage to do openly in such a covert manner. He is a completely pathological liar and even when confronted with the evidence he denies, obfuscates, hides and refuses to cooperate with each and every investigation that has stemmed from his administration’s misdeeds.

    His crime is that he did it despite Congress objecting to it, and then lied and covered up his involvement – and the cherry on top was ordering nearby military assistance not to render support during an eight hour engagement at the consulate. America does not allow sieges or assaults of our diplomatic facilities – that is the way to failure. We should have expectations of the Commander in Chief that include his presence and attention to an ongoing armed assault of an ambassador at an official facility of our State Department. He was so disconnected – if we are to believe that – that he was unlocateable for the entire 8 hours. That is dereliction of duty in military language, and it is a criminal offense whether it results in loss of life or not. He will not come out and say definitively where he was and he’s had two years to clarify it. His administration has fought tooth and nail every single inquiry into every questionable situation that has arisen during his term in office to this point in time. Those are not the actions of an innocent person, they are the tactics employed by persons who are guilty of wrongdoing.

    Conservatives did much more than criticize his desire to arm the rebels, they opposed it in the most clear terms. He decided to run a Fast and Furious off the books, and it bit him. It is time for him to own the failure, and to confess to his obvious guilt. He owes the people that much.

  • Bill Tilghman

    He is guilty, and doing his best to make sure he isn’t found at the heart of this issue. The problem is what is done is done and there is a trail that leads to him. You can keep defending him all you want, but your lies and laughable attempts to derail this thread aren’t even slowing the investigations down. He will be found out, despite your opinion.

    He was completely absent from any command function for 8 hours during which four men were killed, others wounded and the people central to the actual event have been shuffled around like cards to make it near impossible to access them for their testimony. These are not the acts of a guiltless administration. The truth is going to come out, and it will be ugly for those involved in the White House and the State Department. Count on that.

  • Bill Tilghman

    He has broken the trust the American people place in the Office of the President. He was missing from his duties during this entire affair, if that can be believed. That is dereliction of duty, and ducking responsibility when you are the man at the top of the command structure isn’t a valid choice. There are responsibilities that go with his office, and if he fails to meet them, there are consequences. He is enroute to the consequences, and no matter how you try to color it, this is his own fault.

    There shouldn’t have been anything going on at such an insecure facility, but there was, and it has to be ultimately the responsibility of this administration for setting the affair in motion. Congress did not want to allow arming of the Syrian rebels, but Lord Obama decided to do it anyway, and the results are evident. This is why when Congress tells the President that something is a bad idea, he should listen to them. Instead, he went with his narcissist desires and it cost four families dearly, not to mention the other US personnel who were wounded in the battle. You may as well accept the inevitable, the truth will be known and this president is guilty.

  • Bill Tilghman

    No commander delegates during an armed siege. That is complete insanity. He is derelict in the performance of his duties as Commander in Chief, or worse, he ordered available military power not to assist the ambassador during a firefight where the ambassador was in the beaten zone – that means where the bullets were landing.

    That is a crime either way. They also knew during the assault that it was a terrorist operation and had no causal relationship to that idiotic video that this administration asserted was the cause of it for weeks after four Americans lay dead – even to the point of telling the families at Edwards where the flag draped caskets were brought into the country, that they were dead because of an insipid video and that they assured them that the maker of said video was going to be arrested and prosecuted. They are all about law and order when it suits them, and when they have a scapegoat to hide their involvement. That involvement eclipses many times over any connection that video had to this murderous affair.

    There is another crime – covering up the first one by falsely accusing a man who had little to nothing to do with the event that cost four lives and even more non lethal casualties.

    The third crime is someone denied those people nearby help of any sort, no armed response whether late or not, no rescue attempt, no plan to evacuate when things turned bad, and no orders to do what ever we could to assume possession of the site as soon as possible. Even the FBI was refused access when they were told it was too dangerous several days after the fact. At what point do we grow a pair and put armed people at the site in sufficient strength to assert a dominant posture? It should have been the following morning that a company with heavy armament would have been put in the area surrounding the site – instead this president went on with his narcissistic pleasures of campaigning instead of doing the job of Commander In Chief.

    The President is not a member of the military. He does not have to answer to anyone of his whereabouts. The executive branch of the government is independent from Congress. They can pass laws, but they cannot tell the President how to lead. Congress can impeach and try the President for crimes, but what you accuse him of are political issues. Some in Congress might want to impeach and try him for that, but most would not want to set that dangerous president.

  • http://www.bourgeoisviews.blogspot.com/ Anonymous

    I think the weapons are a red herring. The President reneged on his promise to the Syrian rebels because he didn’t want them to fall into the hands of the Al Qaeda among the rebels. How did that get turned around to his wanting to anyhow and the Congressmen who criticized him for delaying now having told him not to deliver them? Is it because the conservatives couldn’t prove he ignored for political reasons that it was Al Qaeda attacking the consulate, and now the conservatives needed to change their accusations?

    Yes, I’m sure that Hilary Clinton, prior to the end of the attack, knew that it was simply a demonstration gone wrong in response to a video, at 10:00 PM prior to the end of the attack. I’m even more certain that the administration’s best information was that the video was the problem, not the president’s failure to protect the embassy, even though the ambassador and the security team had been warning them and requesting increased security for weeks. In fact, good ‘ole “Hils” thought they had the situation so under control that they reduced security. I’m certain that the president running guns to terrorist groups was no big deal as well, especially when those same weapons were used against the embassy. Who could possibly have predicted that result? After all, Libya was completely stable.
    This administration has NEVER admitted wrongdoing on any of this. All of these events stemmed from the president’s need to get reelected. Therefore, responsibility was shunted to others, the attack had nothing to do with Ansar al Sharia, and it was all the result of a video that had never been seen by a single Libyan. After all, that’s why the president and Hilary had the man arrested who made the film. That’s why the president went to the UN and apologized to the Muslim world for us being such terrible people in the US, even though he had repeatedly been informed that this was an organized terrorist attack. But, he’d just said that Al Quaeda was “on the run” just a few days prior to the attack. We couldn’t have a terrorist attack, therefore, it WASN’T a terrorist attack.
    And, of course, the administration prepped Susan Rice about everything BUT Benghazi for the Sunday morning news shows. After all, there were FAR more important things to discuss than the death of an American ambassador and three Americans. The e-mails that were released had absolutely nothing to do with Benghazi…that’s why the administration refused to release them, then when an FOIA request was made for all Benghazi related e-mails through legal challenges, they redacted the entire thing, then when it was challenged in court, they attempted to classify the e-mail after the fact in 2014. All because it had absolutely nothing to do with Benghazi. That’s exactly why they took those measures to block the information from being released. And absolutely none of it was ever discussed with the president.
    I have news for you…Tinker Bell’s not real either. Good luck with the reasoning on this one. Fairy tales are more plausible than the lies these people have told. Ah, the leftist bliss…willful ignorance and self delusion.

    There is more than one committee in each house, and they can all function at the same time, regardless of what else is going on.

    These leftist fools seem capable of the same gymnastic contortions exhibited by the Obama administration. I’ve never heard so much pathetic exculpatory, convoluted explanations about something so obvious that only the most deluded could believe that there is a rational explanation other than the president’s reelection. I especially love their claims that the president had nothing to do with the stand down order.
    Having been in the military, it was ALWAYS my experience that we just picked up and deployed or failed to respond to protect our forces once in theater just on a whim of some non-existent general in the sky. Of course, my sarcasm is literally dripping here. All that seems important to these fools is that ANY explanation be given or ANY other person besides the president must be held responsible, no matter how ludicrous the claim. He was “overseeing” the situation from the residence, not in the situation room, and was completely aware of all events and in charge, but when asked why he gave the stand down order, the claim is made that he DIDN’T…it was someone else that they can’t name, but who mysteriously is anyone but the president who was so nobly large and in charge that night. If my 2-yr-old grandson tried to lie this way, he’d be in for punishment. Too bad the president was so poorly potty trained that he simply lies, then expects everyone to simply accept that he always knows exactly what’s going on and closely manages it, but some unknown person manages to violate national security to take the president’s place and they don’t think that’s a problem. Pathetic.

    You have contradicted yourself by accusing President of giving the embassy forces the order to stay put, but you also accuse him of being missing the entire time. Also, President Lincoln entrusted Gen. Grant with prosecution of the Civil War. President Roosevelt entrusted Gen. Eisenhower with prosecution of the European theater of WWII. I’m sure this was true of other Presidents, generals, and wars. You are way out of presidents with your extreme expectations of the current president. Your accusations are completely political.

    Leave it to a leftist fool who has no idea whatsoever how the National Command Authority, by law, has to work. And if this was “delegated,” then WHO gave the order? Apparently, that’s classified information as well…so classified even the president isn’t allowed to see that information.

    The president is the commander-in-chief of ALL branches of the military through the national command authority, a role that he CANNOT delegate while he is still functional and breathing, by law. Keep trying, though. So far, you look more like a leftist version of a pretzel than a sane, thinking human being. You trying to just make up a story that you so obviously know absolutely nothing about is amusing, but ultimately, pathetic. You saying it doesn’t make it true, but please, keep making a fool of yourself.

    The Administration admitted that they had not sufficiently secured the consulate. What the President has not agreed with is that he had known that it was Al Qaeda attacking when the Administration was saying it was a riot caused by the video.

    An executive only delegates the authority necessary to accomplishing the responsibility delegated. The President cannot possibly give every order his officers will make. The . President cannot be everywhere all the time to determine which orders need to be given in the field. The National Command Authority defines how authority is delegated. It doesn’t require the President to micro-manage how delegated authority is useful.

    The Benghazi special committee is an investigational committee which has nothing to do with other duties of the Congress. If you don’t want them spending time on it, go convince the administration to turn over ALL the emails and come clean, and while you’re at it, haul Hillary back and give her some truth serum (he|| knows she wont tell the truth without it). Tell her that “at this point … what difference does it make” is not an answer.

    ” It like the search for the President’s place of birth needs to go on somewhere other than in Congress.” You couldn’t be more wrong! Congress is exactly where this is supposed to be, and must be done!

    Guess what, genius…without the president’s approval, no military officer in the world, no matter how senior, has the right to move military assets past the borders of a sovereign nation, including the air space of that nation. Not even the secretary of defense would make that move without the president’s express approval, except in the case that the president is incapacitated and unable to serve in that function. In that case, the national command authority structure follows the constitutional chain of authority, with the responsibility falling to the vice-president, unless he is incapacitated, in which case the authority passes to the speaker of the house.… But please, continue to wax poetic on a subject it’s painfully obvious you know absolutely nothing about.

    It’s the eighth committee investigating Benghazi. The last set of emails “discovered” didn’t even mention Benghazi directly, but was talking about the Administration’s position about the general region. What the Repulicans want is for the Administration to give anything that can be reinterpreted to throw suspicion on the Administration. That’s too vague and irrelevant for the Administration to comply with. You have confirmed my contention that Congress has spent too much time on these political pranks by admitting your continued gripe over the President’s birth place. He has released both his short and long form birth certificate proving he was born in Hawaii. Your continued disbelief demonstrates the irrelevance of your suspicions..

    You can believe what you want, but I don’t believe the Administration’s reaction to the attack in Benghazi had anything to do with the election. But since you mention it, you have proved to me that all this uproar is about politics. I have seen that this political riot will not stop until the conservatives don’t believe they can benefit from it.

    Maybe you were in some other man’s military. The Constitution grants the President the power to establish the chain of command all the way down to the lowest ranking officer. Some of those are warrant officers, but most are officers commissioned by Congress. The chain of command establishes the duties and authority to do those duties for everyone in the military. The military command charged with the duty of protecting the consulate in Benghazi already has the authority to do that. They would not wait for a special invitation from the President to do their duty.

    Committees are one thing, but to get an act established, a bill has to be passed by both houses of Congress. That means the two houses have to cooperate. Now as long as the House sends bills to the Senate the Democrats won’t pass, the House is not seeking a good compromise in cooperation. I blame the Republicans for the gridlock.

    “…by admitting your continued gripe over the President’s birth place.” . I have no gripe over it. YOU brought that up. My response ” You couldn’t be more wrong! Congress is exactly where this is supposed to be, and must be done!” is directed at your contention that “it” needs to go on somewhere other than in Congress. You injected the BC into it, which was not the topic. I just quoted your entire sentence. If you can’t stay clear on the issues and responses, don’t interject non-topic into it, as I will not address non-topic..

    ” …as the House sends bills to the Senate the Democrats won’t pass, the House is not seeking a good compromise in cooperation. That is BS. No compromise can happen if the Senate refuses to even bring the bill to the floor for discussion or send it to committee or mark it up with their changes. Your ignorance is duly noted. There is no point in continuing this thread.

    The incessant inquiry into the attack on the Benghazi consulate is still like the incessant inquiry into President Obama’s birthplace. They are both politically motivated to no reasonable purpose.

    It’s not as though the House Republicans didn’t know what the Senate Democrats were not going to vote on. The House had plenty of opportunity to talk to Senate Democrats to know how they think.

  • Guest

    That is your opinion and I disagree. Benghazi is about lies and cover ups.

  • Guardian

    So, your view is that the House should only pass bills that they know the Democrats in the Senate like. ROTFLMAO! You need an education about our government. Please, stop embarrassing yourself.

    I know that House Republicans are using poison pills in bills they send to the Senate to discredit Senate Democrats for not acting on those bills. I know that Sen. Reid refuses to act on those poisoned bills to prevent debate over them from being used for further political purposes. I blame this gridlock on the un-cooperative House Republicans. If they don’t like my criticism, they should pass clean bills instead of holding the government hostage to their whims. I have nothing to be embarrassed for.

  • Guardian

    This is some fantasy you have. You claim there are poison bills in their legislation. I’m calling you on it. Tell it – oh, you can’t. You don’t even know what all these bills are that the House has sent to the Senate that Harry is sitting on. Cut the crap.

  • http://www.bourgeoisviews.blogspot.com/ Anonymous

    I called them poisoned bills because they include things that the Senate Democrats won’t vote for.I also called those non-negotiabe things poison pills. I know the House Republicans do this because it was common knowledge during the shutdown over the continuing resolution. House Republicans had put stuff into their continuing resolution that had nothing to do with continuing the then current budget. I was talking about the general problem with House bills that the Senate Democrats don’t like. It matters not to me what the Democrats dislike about each such bill, the same general problem covers them all. The House Republicans are trying to extort compliance from the Senate Democrats, and it’s just a political stunt to discredit the Democrats. You can deny it if you please, but you are not convincing me.

    You can remain as impervious to the truth as you want – the leftist political wheel likes you all that way. The fact of the matter is that you are trying to spin it the way the left propaganda is directing. Talking to you is like a brick wall. You are carrying their talking points without a string of critical thinking. Stay stupid – you are good at it.

    I’m explaining to you why the Democrats are reacting to the Republicans the way they do. The truth for you is what you make it. So you see any disagreement with you as a lack of independent thought. I certainly don’t let you think for me, and I resent the political games the Republicans are playing instead of looking for acceptable solutions without tricks in them.

  • Guardian

    Republicans have come up with acceptable solutions. The left and you don’t deem them acceptable because they don’t fall in line with your viewpoints. Your (and the left) intolerance and inability to compromise is the problem.

  • http://www.bourgeoisviews.blogspot.com/ Anonymous

    The Republican’s idea of compromise is doing it their way. They have continually rejected the concept of compromise. I don’t doubt that you find their “solutions” acceptable. So what?

  • Guardian

    You are wrong. The R’s have offered points in compromise, were given promises by the D’s that they would compromise also, only to find that after passing what the D’s wanted, The D’s turned back on their word. Who would then trust the Dems again after they lied to get what THEY wanted? No, you are either ignorant about what is going on, or you are lying. Don’t swallow all the garbage the left is putting out. You are watching too much MSNBC . Turn on the CSPAN channels and actually watch what is going on in the House and Senate. It is clear that you are lacking knowledge, and don’t know the truth. Also go to Thomas.gov to see the legislation.

    Don’t bother to respond with more specious claims.

    How many times do I have to find Trojan Horses in the Republican “compromises” to know I’m being lied to? You can lie to me if you want to, but I don’t have to believe you?

    Specify what these “Trojan Horses” are and be specific.

    Never mind, you can’t. I have no interest in pursuing this – you just keep talking opinion over fact.
