Obama’s finally getting a taste of his own medicine.
It seems like since the beginning of his administration, the Blamer in Chief has been throwing people under the proverbial bus whenever things go wrong, from former President Bush to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Now, Fox News has reported that two former Navy SEALs’ requests for assistance during the Benghazi attack that ended up killing four Americans were rejected three times by the CIA annex.
Not willing to take the hit, CIA Director David Petraeus ordered a statement issued to the press that neither he nor anyone at the CIA had anything to do with rejecting the urgent pleas for assistance.
“No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate,” according to the statement.
Earlier this week, The Blaze reported that Clinton had requested more security for the Benghazi mission before the attacks occurred on September 11, but the request was rejected by Obama.
Petraeus’ denial of involvement in rejecting the SEALs pleas for help leaves the president twisting in the wind. If the denial was not ordered by Petraeus or anyone at the CIA, then the order could only have come from the Oval Office, assuming ordinary protocol was followed.
The father of one of the slain SEALs, Charles Woods, has called the White House version of what happened at Benghazi a “pack of lies.” He said in an interview, “To me–I’m an attorney, this may not legal test of murder — but to me, that is not only cowardice. For those people who made the decision and who knew about the decision and lied about it are murderers of my son.”
Obama spent part of Friday dodging direct questions about the refusal of aid during the Benghazi attack. Instead of answering, he talked about “gathering all the facts” and said, “Nobody wants to find out more what happened than I do.”
There’s good reason to believe he knows exactly what happened and will continue lying about it at least until after the election. To the mainstream media, it’s all a nonstory.
The cold truth is, it seems more and more likely that the blood of those slain Americans is on the hands of the president.
