WTF? Panetta wants to talk sequester. Umm, this hearing is about Benghazi, stop changing the subject.

Update: Panetta - "The US military is not, and should not, be a 911 service, capable of arriving on the scene in minutes around the world"

Update: Back to talking about sequester thanks to Sen Manchin (D).

Update: Sen Graham asked: Was any aircraft or any personnel sent to Benghazi during the attack? Any DOD asset sent at all? Gen. Dempsey: No.

Panetta and Dempsey said they spoke to Obama one time the night of Benghazi attack and that Obama never requested an update. Hence, no images of Obama in the 'war room'? Wow.

Via Sen Ayotte. (Who asked some excellent questions): "POTUS never asked what assets we had available to help on night of #Benghazi attack". "Shocking that POTUS never spoke with SECDEF or CJS again after learning our consulate was attacked to ask 'how's it going?'". "POTUS outsourced #Benghazi response". Amen to that, Sen Ayotte.[Uodate: video added of exchange]

The democrats on the committee only want to talk about the budget, sequestration. Pathetic.

Update: Sen Cruz focusing on "window when attack began". "What could have been done, what military options". Panetta: "Tough to respond to a hypothetical" "Can't bomb the hell out of the place without knowing what was going on". Cruz: "What is the absolute fastest for boots on the ground" Dempsey: "13 hours". "No AC-130's in Africa that night". Regarding meeting with Obama, Cruz: "How much of that meeting was about Benghzi" Panetta: 15 to 20 minutes".

2 Shorter Panetta/Dempsey testify transcript:"I (LIE), then I (LIE), and, of course, We collectively (LIE). What difference does it make?!?"

3 The more these clowns avoid the issue and attempt to hide or change the subject the more suspicious this gets, impeachment serious, criminal charges type of serious.
People died and Obama inc. lied.

Hypothetical my fucking ass. He's the Sec of Defense. He's supposed to know all military options and how fast they can get from point A to point B. He's nothing but a piece of shit tool with his head up Obama's ass.

5 OK Leon. Can I have all the sleep back that I lost in the Rapid Deployment Force as a member of the 82nd Airborne Division and all the hours I lost in alerts for the 56 Field Artillery Command chasing the Pershing II missile all over Western Germany? When have we not been a 911 force. Oh, and tell the Navy they can kill that TV add.

6 And that's that for the truth coming out. How long away was all that prepared force in Italy?
How long did this attack go on?
The whole thing Stinks!

7 The whole regime will vote itself a pass on this travesty. The Republicans have maybe three testicles in all of Congress, the Democrats are whoring for all the freebies Big Brother can dole out, the media will smoke screen the events, DOJ is a political tool - what could go wrong?

8 It's as if Watergate occurred and the media ignored it.
JFK gets shot and no one talks about it.
The WTC gets knocked down killing 3000 people and it's business as usual.
The democrats really do expect to be permanently in power from now on and they intend to rule like Chi-Town mobsters.
