Now testimony by Gen. Carter Ham, head of AFRICOM at the time of  attack, before the House Committee on Armed Services in June  2013 suggests that Defense officials did not raise the prospect of an  out-of-control demonstration and immediately deemed the incident an attack.

Ham, whose partially  redacted transcript was declassified by the House on Monday, said at the 2013  hearing that he was alerted to the incident 15 minutes after it erupted at 9:42  p.m. Libya Time (3:42 p.m. EST) on Sep. 11, 2012.

“When we saw a rocket-propelled grenade attack, what appeared to be pretty  well aimed small arms fire — again, this is all coming second and third hand  through unclassified, you know, commercial cellphones for the most part  initially. To me, it started to become clear pretty quickly that this was  certainly a terrorist attack and not just not something sporadic,” he  stated.

Barack Makes A Funny – Four Americans Remain Quite Dead

People Say The Silliest Things At Altitude And Distance

A lot of people are angry about a lot of things concerning Barack Obama’s ongoing SCOAMF*-Fiesta in the nation of Libya.  I addressed what it reinforced to me about his administration in a recent diary.  Barack Obama exists at altitude and distance from the results of any decisions that he makes.  He takes responsibility for his leadership decisions as President about as much as I take responsibility for playing the wrong guy on my fantasy football team.

He demonstrated his utter lack of concern about what happened by sending out Susan Rice and Stephanie Cutter to tell 1,001 Arabian Lies about what transpired on that fatal anniversary of 9/11 in Benghazi, Libya.  When lying and blame shifting didn’t work, he ignored the first rule of holes** and continued his descent.  He wants us to believe the whole thing is just a bump in the road – so inconsequential that he can poke a little fun at himself over at Comedy Central.

Here’s how President Obama tries to just laugh the whole deal off and get back to the really gut-level critical stuff like Big Bird.  He responds to Jon Stewart below.

Stewart asked: ‘Is part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions? ‘Not just what happened in Benghazi, but what happened within.  Because I would say, even you would admit, it was not the optimal response, at least to the American people, as far as all of us being on the same page.’ Obama responded: ‘Here’s what I’ll say. If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.’

It’s a bummer.  He’s sorry.  Like the last time he got ticketed for double-parking or pulling a California Stop at some intersection.  Pat Smith, the mother of killed US Diplomat Sean Smith, was predictably and rightfully livid.  She offered up the following commentary.

‘My son is not very optimal – he is also very dead.’  She continued.  ‘It was a disrespectful thing to say and I don’t think it’s right. ‘How can you say somebody being killed is not very optimal? I don’t think the President has the right idea of the English language.’

Ma’am, he certainly does.
