The Clothes Have No Emperor
Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away
From Leon Panetta’s testimony yesterday on Benghazi:
Under questioning from Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) Panetta says that President Obama knew “generally” what US military assets were deployed in the region, but did not ask for specifics. He left the strategy, according to Panetta, “up to us,” meaning himself and military leadership. Panetta says that after the initial briefing, which took place at about 5 pm Washington time, he had no further communications at all with President Obama that night. The president never even called to ask how the attack was progressing. No one from the White House ever called later that night, according to Panetta, to inquire about the attack. President Obama went to bed that night not even knowing whether the Americans under assault had survived the attack.
Go here to read the appalling rest by Bryan Preston at PJ Media. Obama abidicates his responsibility as Commander in Chief to his staff when the attack is in progress in Benghazi. Obama is not merely the worst President in our history. He is additionally completely disconnected from the office that he holds. What is worse is that the American people re-elected this man to be our non-leader. Somewhere in the world to come Caligula and his horse Incitatus are relieved that their record for high level incompetence has finally been surpassed.
