“I just want to know what the answer is.” – Chris Wallace, May 19, 2013

23 May 2013: Subsequent to a meeting with my primary source inside the intelligence community last week, an individual I refer to as my “intelligence insider,” I wrote a column titled The Benghazi deception. Published on Thursday, May 16, 2013, it concerned Barack Hussein Obama’s location and activities on the night of the Benghazi attack when four Americans were murdered during a preplanned attack against a CIA operations compound. My source was extremely emphatic about this particular issue, stating that the Obama administration will never provide a truthful or detailed answer to this question.
“Why,” I asked, “I mean, what could possibly be so damning about his location and activities during the 18 1/2 hour period in question? He was in the White House, correct?” It was here that there was a long, uncomfortable pause as I waited for my answer.
“The White House is a pretty big place, you know,” stated my source in such a way that made it seem that I thought it to be a small, single family home. “I’m telling you, ‘somebody’ in the press will be asking that question and won’t get an answer,” he stated very emphatically. “Just ask the question,” he said, leaving me to wonder momentarily if I was to ask him. “Write about it, and ask the question. Exactly where was Barack Hussein Obama following his 5:00 meeting in the Oval Office until the next day? Where wasn’t he? It’s almost as if the Wizard of Oz himself waved his magic wand to divert attention away from those lost hours. Nobody is asking the question,” he said to me, almost in a scolding manner.
Congress told White House left terror attack response “up to us”
In his testimony to Congress …, Panetta said that the operational details of the response, the decisions on what resources were available to help, and other decisions were left “up to us.”
Panetta, answering questions from Congress about the attack on the U.S., said except for a scheduled meeting with the president the day of the attack, Obama failed to communicate in any way with him that day.
Panetta said he simply didn’t hear from anyone at the White House.
