Did I understand that right? So Panetta/Dempsey talked to Obama only once and never to Clinton?—

Unreal. During Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony, she claimed that the cables asking for security at the consulate, and warning of danger, “never came to her attention.” Today, both chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta denied telling Secretary of State Clinton or President Obama about the threat warnings. And more.
“Surprised” is one way to put it. Dempsey claims he didn’t bring the cable to her attention, but he’s “surprised” she wouldn’t have known about it.
And there was more utter incompetence. Senator Kelly Ayotte fought like a girl for more answers.
Even members of the media praised her probing questions.
Her questions, as well as some asked by Senator Graham, cut right to the chase. And the answers were beyond disturbing.
Wow. Hey, he didn’t want to break his sleep flow, man. Appalling.
That she did, and the incompetence is dangerous.
No one knew what was going on. It is their job to know. Just a little bump in the road, though, huh?
He was voting present.
