Oct. 22 - Obama said “Now, with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way ...”
Oct. 25 - Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told a Pentagon press briefing that while there were forces in place in the region, the “basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what's going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place.”
However we have now confirmed that during the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi the White House Situation Room was receiving real time information from three different sources simultaneously, two overhead drones and emails as well as a possible real time video feed directly from the U.S. Consulate.
So, if the president is telling the truth that he actually instructed his assistants to get aid to Benghazi, then the secretary of defense apparently refused to obey the president's order. Of course it's far more likely the president is not telling the truth again.
