“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

The Benghazi story still has legs

Sec. Def. Leon Panetta testified yesterday that President Obama was nowhere to be found on 9/11, 2012 when the embassy in Benghazi was attacked and four Americans lost their lives including our ambassador to Libya. Further, he preposterously claimed that Obama had time for an hour-long phone call to Israeli PM Netanyahu, but was not briefed until the next day about Benghazi.

We are to believe that while a US ambassador is being murdered in Libya, on 9/11 of all days, the President's advisers didn't tell him until the next day?

Something's very fishy here. I know it's fishy because not telling the President that an ambassador is being murdered is a lie. I think Panetta is distancing Obama from Benghazi because there's some information that hasn't come out yet. I don't know what it is, but it must be bad for the Sec. Def., who is otherwise a very serious person, to make claims that are simply inconceivable.

Here's Panetta yesterday on the stand indicating just how far he can be trusted to tell the truth about Benghazi and Obama's role that night.....
