Gutsy Panetta Admits There was No Live Video in Situation Room
You know who I might not want to be right now is Leon Panetta. Virtually everything Leon Panetta has said since this whole incident was discovered has been refuted. The latest… (chuckles) The regime puts out this picture of everybody in the Situation Room, and we’re all led to believe that they’re watching the raid in real time. That’s what we, the American people, are led to believe. Then you’ve got Obama sitting there, and it’s been observed that he (I observed it myself as the Big Voice on the Right) seemed very small, the smallest person in the room. He’s got on a golf shirt and a windbreaker. Gates and one other guy are the only other people in there with a tie on.
Hillary has her hand over her mouth like she can’t believe what she’s seeing. Her story today is, “No, no, no, no! I wasn’t upset at what I was seeing. It was an allergy problem.” Well, it turns out they weren’t watching anything. Panetta said it went dark for 25 minutes. The feed went black. There was nothing there. The picture in the Situation Room where they were intently watching every second of the raid, Panetta says they weren’t watching it. Panetta said the picture was going to be released. The picture’s not gonna be released. I can’t think of all the instances here where Panetta has done this.
The story is out that Panetta actually was instrumental in getting the decision made by Obama to do this. Hillary Clinton said, “Those were 38 of the most intense minutes of the raid on Bin Laden’s compound by the SEALs. I have no idea what any of us are looking at that particular millisecond when the picture was taken.” (laughs) Well, Panetta does! He said you were looking at a black screen. Thirty minutes of the feed — 25 or 30 minutes of it — was missing. They still can’t get their story straight about all of this.
