‘Irrelevant Where Obama Was During Benghazi’

From the Weekly Standard:

Obama Aide: ‘Irrelevant Fact’ Where President Was During Benghazi Attacks

By DANIEL HALPER | May 19, 2013

Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer said it’s an "irrelevant fact" where the president physically was during the Benghazi terror attack on September 11, 2012.

Remember how for years the left has tried to perpetuate the myth that Bush ‘disappeared’ after the attack on the World Trade Center?

But, in any case, it is highly important where Obama was, since we are trying to find out who told the military to stand down — twice.

Host Chris Wallace reminds Pfeiffer that Obama didn’t really talk with Secretary Clinton, Secretary Panetta, or Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that night. "He was talking to his national security staff," Pfeiffer insists.

Who? Let’s have their names. As Chris Wallace pointed out, neither Panetta or Dempsey heard from Obama according to their sworn testimony before Congress.

Asked about whether the president entered the Situation Room, Pfeiffer says, "I don’t remember what room the president was in on that night, and that’s a largely irrelevant fact."

At the very least, doesn’t’ the American people have a right to know?

Is Dan Pfeiffer aiming to be the next Susan Rice? And why not? After all, she I going to be promoted to Obama’s National Security Advisor, for her efforts on the talk shows.

Pfeiffer then argues that Wallace’s questions about the president’s handling of the Benghazi terror attack are "offensive." …

Were they racist, too?

Lest we forget, Hillary Clinton had no problems suggesting that Bush might have even known about the 9/11 attack in advance.

From the archives of CNN:

White House accuses Sen. Clinton of fueling political divisions

May 18, 2002

WASHINGTON (CNN) — White House press secretary Ari Fleischer accused Sen. Hillary Clinton Friday of working to divide Americans along party lines.

The former first lady responded by saying she is simply "seeking answers and information" about recent revelations that President Bush was alerted prior to September 11 of possible terrorist attacks.

The row between the White House and the Democrat from New York began Thursday when Clinton appeared on the Senate floor and held up a copy of the New York Post with the headline of "Bush Knew."

"The president knew what?" she asked. "My constituents would like to know the answer to that and many other questions, not to blame the president or any other American, just to know."

Fleischer responded in his daily news briefing.

"I have to say, with disappointment, that Mrs. Clinton, having seen that same headline, did not call the White House, did not ask if it was accurate or not," he said.

"Instead, she immediately went to the floor of the Senate, and I’m sorry to say that she followed that headline and divided."

Hours later, the freshman senator fired back.

"What I said is completely in line with what was said by other senators on both sides of the aisle who are asking respectfully for information to respond to questions that are legitimately being posed by the American public," she told reporters.

"We have a responsibility to ask for information, and I think that is not only appropriate but necessary. You know, nobody is more entitled to answers to these questions than the people of New York, and I take that responsibility very seriously."

She added: "I am seeking answers and information. I am not looking to point fingers or place blame on anybody."

To which the Bush White House should have responded, ‘what difference does it make now?’ But, for some reason, they didn’t.
