Obama Called YouTube During the Benghazi Attack?
Obama’s incompetence is on display.
Check it out:
Now, this latest news on Benghazi that Darrell Issa has produced here, it’s a still-classified State Department e-mail. They haven’t released it. All they’re doing is talking about it. “A still-classified State Department e-mail says that one of the first responses from the White House to the Benghazi attack was to contact YouTube to warn of the ‘ramifications’ of allowing the posting of an anti-Islamic video, according to Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
“The memo suggests that even as the attack was still underway,” taking place, as the Al-Qaeda terrorists were unleashing hell on the consulate, “and before the CIA began the process of compiling talking points on its analysis of what happened — the White House believed it was in retaliation for a controversial video. The subject line of the e-mail, which was sent at 9:11 p.m. Eastern Time on the night of the attack, is ‘Update on Response to Actions — Libya.’
“The [e-mail] was written hours before the attack was over.” Now, here we were all worried that Obama didn’t do anything the night of the attack. Here we were all worried that Obama was off the grid. We were all worried, curious, “Where was Obama while all this was going on?” And now we find out. There was no record of him being in the Situation Room. There was no on-the-record of him being in contact with anybody in a leadership position.
He was on the phone with YouTube, Google, trying to get the video taken down.
Can you believe this? So in the middle of an attack on Benghazi, the White House calls Google (we’re being asked to believe) to take down the video, because Google owns YouTube. Now, there’s a problem with this. You’re missing the point of all this if you look at it that way. Issa’s point is they have claimed all along — the White House has.
