-Benghazi: Panetta Throws Hillary Under the Bus

No Word from Hillary During Benghazi Attack

Neither the secretary of defense nor the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke to the secretary of state during the 8-hour attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. At a Thursday hearing in the Senate, Republican Ted Cruz asked both Leon Panetta and Martin Dempsey, "In between 9:42 p.m., Benghazi time, when the first attacks started, and 5:15 am, when Mr. Doherty and Mr. Woods lost their lives, what conversations did either of you have with Secretary Clinton?"
"We did not have any conversations with Secretary Clinton," Panetta responded.
"And General Dempsey, the same is true for you?" Cruz asked. Dempsey confirmed this.

...and where was Obama?
Panetta said that Obama left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under seize, "up to us."
In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Panetta said that, save their 5 o'clock prescheduled meeting with the president the day of September 11, Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that day. There were no calls about the what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.

What about military support?
General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the State Department never requested "support" in Benghazi:

While the delusional leftists told us that Hillary's Benghazi testimony was "her finest hour", the damning testimony above erases any credibility to her testimony and the representations of the CiC.

Apparently Panetta testifies that the US was running Arms to Syria (from Libya via Turkey).

If so:


How anyone would consider this person "capable" of leading the nation is beyond me, but points to the reality that our current administration has significantly lowered the bar.

... at least John Kerry will be there to "right the ship"!?!?!
