Obama's 2004 Speech | Main | Lawyer: My Client Has Been Unjustly Accused of "Butt-Chugging," and Further Is No Homo
October 03, 2012

On One Hand, Obama Rejected All Requests For Additional Security In Benghazi.
But, On The Other Hand, He Also Rejected Any Military Rescue When The Attack Was In Progress.

It all evens out, except for a few bumps in the road funeral plot.

According to the Wall Street Journal, as the attack on the U.S. consulate was raging, Obama took a "wait and see" approach.

Ninety minutes after news of the attack reached Washington, Obama, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, JCS Chair General Martin Dempsey, and a national security adviser convened for an oval office meeting in which they ultimately rejected the course of U.S. military intervention. Instead, they decided to reach out to the Libyan government to ask if they would send reinforcements.

When the U.S. personnel at the consulate left the main building for what was supposed to be a safe house, questions regarding the deployment of forces seemed moot.

But the battle was still raging, and Ambassador Stevens' life was close to its end.

But you know Romney sent out a press release criticizing the Cairo Embassy, so.

Thanks to @johnekdahl.
