Questions For Obama On Benghazi

The Weekly Standard’s Stephen F. Hayes has 20 question for POTUS

If the president really wants to level with the American people, here are some questions he needs to answer.

1. Were there references to Libyan security threats in the President’s Daily Brief (PDB) during the three weeks before the attacks in Benghazi?

2. If there were, did President Obama participate in an intelligence briefing after the Libya threat was raised in the PDB?

3. Did President Obama ask his CIA briefer about threats in Libya during the three weeks before the attacks?

4. Were Libyan security threats discussed in any daily intelligence briefing that President Obama did not attend?

Make sure to read the rest.

I have one myself: didn’t the president think it was strange that all these “spontaneous protests” featured large numbers of people carrying professionally made Salafist flags and wearing professionally made Salafist headbands? Did anyone in the administration think it was strange? How about all the intelligence folks?

Oh, and here’s an interesting one that the Washington Examiner’s Timothy P. Carney hopes is asked tonight

There are plenty of issues to talk about in tonight’s foreign-policy presidential debate. But here’s a pretty straightforward question I want answered: Why does President Obama think it was okay for him to attack Libya without congressional authorization?

Remember, there was no direct or imminent threat posed by the civil war in Libya to the United States, her people (particularly in Europe and the Middle East/N. Africa, or her military assets in the Mediterranean. As the article points out, and has been mentioned many times, Obama even stated that the President doesn’t have the authority to launch a military operation like occurred with Libya.

Oh, and perhaps someone might ask Obama about the disposition of US Navy and Marine ships in the Med, and whether any could have launched air power (plans and gun ships) as well as rapid troop disbursement during the long hours our people were under assault in Benghazi. Where was the Ike? How about any Marine assault ships? Could a few Ospreys or Seahawks have brought SEALs and/or Marines to the rescue within a short time? How about sending a few Super Cobras?

Teach, don’t be a racist hater. You just can’t ask questions of the first historical second black president.

Heck, he’s not even black so why are we even noticing the historical landmark? So, while we acknowledge the 2nd black non-black president, we don’t acknowledge that he is black so that we can claim we are colorblind to the racial stereotypes that we are pushing.

Sigh, after killing Osama Bin Laden, and then claiming to hate war, and using surgical drone strikes against even americans in the field while claiming there is no longer an al queda threat, we must now put war and death off of the table when speaking to our friends who want to nuke us and Israel. Who isn’t our friend.

OH. Yeah. And, you are a global warmer too! It’s not fair that your use of showers and toilet paper is forcing 3rd world nations to foot the cleanup bill to help make sure that the world’s temperature doesn’t escalate to a runaway destruction of all life on the planet.

That sounded pretty racist.

Well, as long as it sounds like it.. then I’m in the clear. Appearances are worth more than actions.
