Obama’s Secretary of Defense And His Pathetic “Panetta Doctrine”

-
Not mentioned in the Roanoke Times, who is working diligently not to cover any of the Libya Embassy disaster lest voters have additional insight into the Obama administration malfeasance and cover-up.

During this hours-long Radical Muslim Terrorist attack upon our people at the Libyan Embassy, those under attack desperately requested assistance. On three occasions the answer from their remote chain-of-command was ‘No”. Leon Panetta, Obama’s Sec. of Defense (talk about an oxymoron), explained the decision as the Panetta-Doctrine:

National Review: The Panetta Doctrine
http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/331849/panetta-doctrine-jonah-goldberg#
“(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,” Panetta told Pentagon reporters. “And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”
-
So it was not-OK to reinforce and help our people under attack at the Libyan Embassy, but it was OK to put them there in the first place and keep them there while ignoring repeated requests for adequate security assets; and after multiple attacks earlier this year!
-
The real-time information available to Panetta and associates was the video-stream from outside the Embassy, the reports from the CIA Chief of Station in contact with his chain of command, the calls from those under attack and a Drone circling overhead. All this, and with help standing by an hour flight away. This will be found to be negligent homicide on the part of members of Obama’s closest team-members.
-
The father of a former Navy SEAL killed in the Libya terror attack last month said Friday that U.S. officials who denied a request for help while the diplomatic compound in Benghazi was under attack "are murderers of my son."
