Panetta-Obama Was ABSENT During Benghazi Attack

OH MY! People have joked about President Obama a "voting present" as he did so many times when he was a state legislator...but when it came to the evening of September 11, 2012 when the US Mission in Benghazi was attacked and four American Heroes were killed, the president wasn't even present! 

Today, outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta testified that there was no communication between the defense department and the  White House during the Benghazi attack.  Everything was left up to Panetta at the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. NOTHING.  Even after the White House was informed about the death of Ambassador Stevens Obama didn't call--not a "hey I heard something is going on..?" or  "How are you folks handling things?" or even "are you guys ordering out for Pizza?"(Panetta doesn't say who informed the White House but based on the rest of his testimony I assume it was the State Department).



During the 2008 primary season, Hillary Clinton ran an ad asking "Who do you want to answer the phone at 3am during a crisis?"  A more appropriate question might have been "do you want ANYONE to answer the phone at 3am during a crisis?
