Dangerous incompetence: Obama skips intel meeting for Vegas, embassies not secure on 9/11; Where are media?

Nope, sorry. They are far too busy coordinating attacks against Mitt Romney. Because, statement.

Citizens, again doing the job that “real journalists” won’t do, are demanding answers after attacks on our embassies left four people dead.

The rightful demand grows as more and more reports come in exposing Obama’s dangerous incompetence. It’s not just appalling statements from the U.S. embassy in Cairo, the Pentagon calling an American citizen in order to quash his free speech, or Obama declaring that Egypt is no longer an ally. It gets even worse.

President Obama continues to skip intelligence briefings, even skipping one a day after the attacks.

More from The Washington Post:

According to the public schedule of the president, the last time the Obama attended his daily intelligence meeting was Sept. 5 — a week before Islamist radicals stormed our embassy in Cairo and terrorists killed our ambassador to Tripoli. The president was scheduled to hold the intelligence meeting at 10:50 a.m. Wednesday, the day after the attacks, but it was canceled so that he could comfort grieving employees at the State Department — as well he should. But instead of rescheduling the intelligence briefing for later in the day, Obama apparently chose to skip it altogether and attend a Las Vegas fundraiser for his re-election campaign. One day after a terrorist attack.

That is so shake fisty, we are struck speechless. Outrageous, unconscionable and beyond dangerous. This is the President of the United States. Under his watch, four lay dead. And he skips the intelligence briefing. He’s so smart, you see, that he doesn’t even need any briefings. Plus, Vegas, baby! 

There’s more: The embassies were not secure on September 11. And there are reports that marines are not allowed to carry live ammunition.


And the media?

Ace of Spades, Kirsten Powers and other citizens ask the questions that need answered.


Indeed. The president had time to chatter with him on September 11.

Reportedly, they also didn’t have armed marines. Shouldn’t this be questioned?

Yes. But, statement tact. That’s the real concern here, you see.

Not why four lay dead, left unsecured on September 11, under President Obama’s watch.

  • J. Cox

    Leadership at its finest…and I wonder how the hell he is polling anywhere close to Mitt…oh yeah..tactful statements are more important.

    • Orangeone

      Skewed polling of course.

    • strat77

      With the MSM, all the late night talk shows, and all the union thugs shilling for Obama – he should be 20 points ahead. Imagine if they were just doing an impartial job – it would be no contest. (paraphrasing Rush)

    • Black Ball

      Leadership is saying, ‘when the chips are down, follow me guys. I will resolve the issues that are dragging us down.’ With Obama it is all about populist aims that seek to appease people that wish to harm the Western lifestyle. It is about his re-election and to hell with everything else. How else can you explain his decision to slam Romney over the Embassy tweet, then disavow it? How else to explain bowing to the Saudi king? How else to explain trying to be a conduit between the Middle East and the Free World? He has been shown up to be the amateur he is.

      The polls are skewed as Orangeone pointed out. Polling places call me all the time, but I never answer them, and I think many others don’t either. They only take the % of the people who answer and then formulate an inaccurate poll which doesn’t reflect the country as a whole. The polls will NEVER be accurate unless we’re all forced to answer them.

    The media is busy blaming Romney for not giving the terrorists cancer

    The Ambassador to Egypt is one of Hillary Clinton’s sisters from Wellesley and graduated very near the same time. So, I’m not surprised that she wouldn’t permit Marines to be armed. I see the Pentagon, as usual, is kowtowing to the administration and spinning like a break dancer to deny the allegations. I’ve come believe opposite of the what the Pentagon says.

    • http://twitter.com/advancingtruth Claire Adams

      Interesting. I didn’t know that. I heard she was in DC at the time of the attack.

      • weRbroke

        How convenient that she was in DC for unrelated travel.

  • allenbarr

    BHO has protection 24/7/365 and not for 1 single week could he have given support to those embassys. what is a life worth. is POTUS life worth his security. he has the most security of any previous president. his security rivals that of Adolf Hitler for real.

    • Orangeone

      And he has more security than all other Presidents combined. Wonder if that has been upped since his relentless chanting at the DNC that he killed Osama. Herein lies the cause of the embassy attacks.

      • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

        Good point. It does make since that him bragging about taking out Osama (with his deranged followers) is egging on the radicalist Islams, taunting them like holding up raw meat to a hungry dog, then pulling it back over and over. The dog will then attack since it doesn’t know anything else.

        • Orangeone

          I heard they are screaming in the Middle East that they are 1.5 billion Bin Ladens.  Yeah, that tells me this is O’Bambi’s fault.

  • Lftcoaster

    Obama is an interim President, so I guess he doesn’t need security either

    • Orangeone

      Very best comment today!

    • Mom for Mitt

      The day 9/11/01 happened George Bush was put on Air Force One, location undisclosed, for his protection. I have wondered why the same wasn’t done for Mr. Obama since it is America that has been under attack by the same radical group. He’s been frolicking on the South Lawn of the White House with Olympians and lunching with Biden, campaigning in NV & CO, partying with Jay-Z & Beyonce. Is anyone else left scratching their head?

  • vcferlita

    The Social Security Administration and NOAA get to order up ammo, but our Marines in a hostile foreign country don’t. WTH?!?!

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    I’ll say it again, if that blithering bumpkin had shred of honor or decency, he’d have resigned already AT LEAST, and if he had a molecule of shame he’d have done a Berlin Bunker by now.

  • JoeMyGod

    Ridiculous lies. ALL presidents receive a daily in-person security briefing by top intelligence officers no matter where they are in the world. Otherwise they’d never be able to fly, campaign, take vacations, or visit foreign nations.

    • fivegreatkids

      According to WH officials, Mr. Obama has not had a person to person one for quite awhile BUT he does read the minutes…

    • allenbarr

      Joe you are funny.

      Keep telling yourself whatever you need to so you can sleep better at night. Lord knows that’s what Obama does…

        There is no lord. You are hallucinating.

        • http://www.facebook.com/corey.dennison Corey Dennison

          So, given the reports that are out now about ObamAA+ skipping his daily Intel briefings, can you come up with anything better than a stupid athiest rant?

          Didn’t think so; you got nothing, loser.

    • Kevin Krom

      He’s SUPPOSED to receive the briefing, but skips it over half the time, including none since September 5, in favor of just (supposedly) reading a written summary instead.

      You’re absolutely right in that attending these briefings is part of his job. He’s just not doing it — another reason to vote him out in November.

  • ZoriahShepard

    What are the marines using then? Are they just supposed to shake their fingers menacingly?

    • Orangeone

      And their commanders are okay sending the Marines in unarmed. WTH?

      • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

        What can the commanders do when the top boss of the Armed Forces, Soetoro–Obama, says no to them being armed? If the commanding officers said “no” to Barry, then he’d replace them with someone who would say “yes”.

        • Orangeone

          They need to determine if O’Bambi’s order is lawful.  If not, they need to disobey.

    • Ken H.

      no, they also have the option of holding their index finger up to their lips and saying “shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!”…

    I walked into work and heard how “my boy” Romney had really stepped in it. I asked why he thought that.He asked how Romney knew about the embassy 6 hours prior to the attack. I didn’t even have to look. I knew instantly that the Egyptian embassy incident had been buried by our un-biased media. I then asked if he knew there were three embassies attacked. He told me that he only knew of the one that was attacked. How sad that our media is making up lies about both candidates… but especially the numerous lies about Romney. They are truly twisted to think that we will forget their incompetence after the election is over. this is a headline I copied/pasted:
    U.S. embassies attacked in Yemen, Egypt after Libya envoy killed
    Courtesy of Reuters

    Cairo was attacked prior to Libya but the truth in the headline would not benefit their accusations of Romney knowing beforehand.

    • redheadgrl

      Guess your coworker doesn’t realize Egypt is 6 hours ahead of EST. So, these riots (attacks) were scheduled to begin at 5pm on Sept 11 at the Embassies. That is 11 am here. Romney didn’t speak until when? Wed morning?

      • TomJB

        You mean 11 pm here

        • redheadgrl

          no. They are 6 hours AHEAD of us. 5 PM in Egypt is 11AM in say, NYC.

          • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

            Math is too hard for Liberals, you know this. 😛 No I’m not lumping you in with them, TomJB.

  • KateNE

    I have been livid for 2 days now about this and it just keeps getting worse and NO ONE IN THE MSM GIVES A DAMN! Marines without live ammo, American diplomats in dangerous countries without proper security on 9/11 no less and a President who thinks his beauty sleep is more important than finding out if one of his Ambassadors has been murdered by terrorists or not. Oh, and campaigning is more important that intelligence briefings. This is all just shameful.

    • operanerd1986

      I know. This is a major scandal for any politician, and I’m dumbfounded that the US news media isn’t investigating it. Undoubtedly they would be all over it if we had a Republican President. At least the mainstream press in the UK is reporting on it now.

      • TomJB

        But wait!!! President Bush.. sorry, BUSH was 7 minutes delayed in reacting to 9/11!!! He had it coming!


        • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

        • Beth Larsen

          God, I know! The MSM will never let that delay go, despite the fact he was sitting in front of a group of children and didn’t want to cause panic. Days without leadership while President Messiah parties, however, just makes him cool I guess. Terrifies me that there are so many people in America who aren’t livid.

    Vladimir Putin
    Mobile Industry

    Is anyone in the MSM writing about the Obama/Clinton incompetence regarding out foreign policy? … and if you look at the Mitt stories – you’d think he attacked the embassies himself!

  • fivegreatkids

    I can only speak regarding first responders here in America but they are all STRONGLY advised by the feds (since 9/11) to have tight security at all facilities. Extra precautions to be taken on days like 9/11. American facilities in the mid east are left open however?!
    How can one expect Marines to do their job without bullets and ambassadors to do their jobs in the middle east without security? That is intro to terrorism 101 for goodness sakes!

  • Mackie72

    Checking some Lib websites, (I’ll need a shower): they’re all claiming the Marines were not disarmed with no ammo. They have no facts to back-up that claim, but they’re ripping-up any of us “RWNJs” who report any lack of ammunition.

  • http://twitter.com/AmyLSonger Amy Songer

    Obama needs to stop campaigning and go do his job. In the “real world” when someone doesn’t do their job, they get fired. I am beyond outraged right now and so frustrated because I feel very helpless to make a difference in this situation. Doesn’t help that I live on the “left coast” and often feel like my vote will never count.

    Thank you Michelle for being the public voice of outrage for me and so many others in my situation. Keep up the good work – don’t stop speaking truth into this disgusting web of lies crafted by the MSM and Obamaites.

    How poorly has the content of the “Intel Meetings” become that even if
    Obama skipped out, nobody even considered beefing up security on 9/11?
    This is rotten to the core, bunch of people living in an imaginary world
    where everyone loves their Obama and nobody would harm Americans and
    God forbid giving bullets to Marines to protect our interests as that
    might “offend” the Muslims. Time to get some adults back in the WH.

  • Mini14’sBlkStrat

    hussein obama has been in over his head since day one. To be President I believe you first need to love the USA, not want to change it. Now he’s totally confused as what to do. He’s what we call a walking clusterfuk. He never would have been elected had it not been for the msm who thought it woul be so hip, progressive and politically correct to have a black skinned president. It certainly wasn’t about his resume.

    • redheadgrl

      You can see it, too. Look how much older and gray he is just after 3 years. It took 8 years for both Clinton and Bush to age that much from the stress.

  • Black Ball

    Here in Australia I hve been following for some time the US election cycle and it alarms me that some people still vote for Obama. With all the things he has said compared to what he has achieved, he should be out on his posterior. But willing footsoldiers like Chris Matthews ensure that the real story of Obama’s incompetence remains hidden. But his actions have laid his modus operandi bare and it isn’t a pretty sight. People will say what does this have to do with Australia? As America and Britain are our greatest allies, whatever happens with your elections has an effect here. Everytime I see PM Gillard and Obama speak, my blood pressure rises because when inept people become leaders, there are dangerous times ahead. Good luck with your election in November and hoping Romney wins.

    Geez. I was in Bucharest, ROMANIA, this past June. Walked by the US Embassy one day. About 5 marines at the gate, and another 4 Romanian officers. ALL ARMED. And Romania is a friendly country, trying to get into NATO. Looks like there was more security there than in Egypt or Libya.

    Why are people still so shocked that the media doesn’t report these things? Haven’t you been reading the articles on this site, or on other sites like Breitbart? I mean, come on… it’s obvious that they support their thug president all the way. It does not surprise me that they don’t report these things. Fortunately, we have other people to report the truth. God Bless team Twitchy, Breitbart, Glenn Beck, and all the journalists out there that set these liars straight. Normally, it’s good to watch both sides as far as news goes, but MSNBC and all that crap … frankly, they aren’t even news anymore…they’re just a bunch of Obama ass-kissing thugs.

    The Marines were NOT allowed to carry live ammunition on them? Why have Marines guarding the Consulate at all if they are not allowed to do what they have been trained to do and defend? Were they allowed to carry tazers or were those not allowed either? Hell, a bow and arrows would have been better than nothing at all! It seems to me those brave Marines were being used as practically weaponless meat shields. That is just wrong on all fronts. They should at least be able to fight for the lives of their charges and themselves. Did they have grenades? Doubtful. Now four men are dead and countless others injured! It’s not the Marines’ faults at all.

    Kudos again to @AceofSpadesHQ for calling it like it is.

    This “President” IS responsible for the deaths of those four wonderful men directly.

    Barry Obama did an interview with “Pimp with a Limp” on 9/11. He missed a meeting with his Intel staff to be in Vegas (and we didn’t want him here) campaigning and hanging out at some hip-hop club. He didn’t allow any real security at a place buzzing with al Qaeda activity. He hardly ever GOES to the Intel briefings which is why the Embassies were not secured on 9/11 of all days. He gives money to the Muslim Brotherhood. What good is he?
