Lack of response a presidential shame

info@islandpacket.comNovember 4, 2012 

I have read and heard numerous interviews from prominent people regarding the Benghazi attack on our consulate in Libya. The facts are now in.

When this attack was taking place, President Barack Obama evidently said to stand down because it was only a mob protesting. Then Obama left for Las Vegas. This attack was reported via telephone and emails in real time to Obama's administration. No person in the administration took action. This attack lasted seven hours. The response of our military could of been there in two hours.

What happened? Obama was off in Las Vegas, that's what happened. The drones in the air could easily have responded with total accuracy. What happened? Obama was in Las Vegas and refused to aid our people. Obama said we must get permission from the Libyan government. What government? A government of terrorists?

This is why Obama and his administration are trying to cover this up. What American would vote for a guy who refuses to help his own people?

Generals of the military tell the truth of what happened in the closed-door meetings on the day of the Sept. 11 attack and days after. I served 21 years in the U.S. Marine Corps and I have never seen a president refuse to aid/help Americans in distress. This is a presidential shame and massive cover-up to save his election.
