Forget the 3 AM phone call. Obama couldn’t even be trusted with an 11 PM phone call. They say that only a man with a clear conscience, or no conscience at all, can sleep this way. But hey, he had to be rested for the next fundraiser and the next party. Jay-Z and Beyonce, unlike dead ambassadors and Libyan militias, actually matter.
Fox News’ Special Report informed us that Barack Obama knew of the attack on the Libyan consulate within 90 minutes of it beginning. There is no doubt that Obama knew that the attacks involved AK-47s, along with Rocket propelled grenades. He knew that his ambassador was in grave danger and yet knowing all of this, and not knowing the status of Ambassador Stevens, Obama allegedly went quietly to bed.
Imagine if Bush had gone to sleep after hearing that a plane was headed toward the World Trade Center?
But what Obama was likely told was that an attack was happening, but that his friends in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Martyrs of Feb 17 Brigade were tasked with protecting the Consulate and that they were the heaviest armed militia around. What was there to worry about?
