Of the scandals, there’s only one so far that without a doubt touches the president.
If Benghazi becomes the poor relative of all these other scandals sprouting up like meerkats from their desert burrows, it will be a scandal in itself. Because the questions it raises are at the center of what it means to be president.
Hillary Clinton understood this with her 3 am emergency phone call ad that asked Americans whether they wanted her or President Obama to be answering it.
As far as we know, on 3 am the night of September 11, 2013, Obama was fast asleep. Because, after all, he had a big day coming up. He was taking his fundraising road show to Vegas September 12. Meanwhile, as the sandman brought him his dreams, a small piece of America he’d planted in Benghazi, Libya was under attack.
If the president failed to do everything he could the night of the Benghazi attacks to prevent American deaths, it is very profound problem. The White House has released almost no specific information about his actions. It’s fair to conclude that they are hiding something.
Fox News put together a report detailing what we know about the president’s evening.
