Bombshell Video: NSA Spokesman Says Obama Never Entered The Situation Room During Benghazi Attack
In a contentious interview with Bret Baier on Fox News, former NSA spokesperson Tommy Vietor admitted that Barack Obama never even entered the situation room even as the attack continued at the Benghazi consulate.
From the interview:
Tommy Vietor: I was in the Situation Room that night. Ok. And we didn’t know where the ambassador was. Definitively.
Bret Baier: Was the president in the Situation Room?
Baier: Where was the president.
Vietor: In the White House.
Baier: He wasn’t in the Situation Room.
Vietor: Uhh. At what point in the evening. He was constantly… It’s well known that when the attack was first briefed to him it was in the Oval Office. And he was updated constantly…
Baier: Sp then when Hillary Clinton talks to him by phone at 10 PM, he’s where?
Vietor: I don’t know. I don’t have a tracking device on him in the residence.
Baier: But you were in the Situation Room and he wasn’t there.
Ironically, he was trying to defend the president when he made these comments, by criticizing Fox News for airing reports that Obama watched the attack unfold from the Situation Room. Is it any better that he never bothered to check in and see what was going on?
This follows the lack of interest and character we’ve come to expect from Obama – long after the attack that killed Osama Bin Laden, it was discovered that the president was mostly playing cards with Reggie Love instead of watching the historic event unfold. That didn’t prevent him from shamelessly campaigning on the military achievement, of course.
