A dodge that was intended to block all relevant information to get out before the upcoming election.
But some questions can't wait.
And some need no "review board."
What went on in this meeting?
Obama Met With Panetta and Biden at WH As Benghazi Terror Attack UnfoldedActually, that portion of the meeting - if in that meeting there was any discussion relating to the Benghazi debacle - is absolutely appropriate for disclosure. These people work for us.
By Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News
(CNSNews.com) - President Barack Obama met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Vice President Joe Biden at the White House on Sept. 11, 2012 at 5:00 PM—just 55 minutes after the State Department notified the White House and the Pentagon that the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack.
The meeting between Obama, Panetta and Biden had been scheduled before the attack took place, and the Department of Defense is not commenting now on whether the three men were aware when they met that day of the ongoing attack or whether Obama used that meeting to discuss with his defense secretary what should be done to defend the U.S. personnel who at that very moment were fighting for their lives in Benghazi.
“Secretary Panetta met with President Obama, as the White House-provided scheduled indicates,” Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale, a Defense Department spokesman, told CNSNews.com on Tuesday. “However, neither the content nor the subject of discussions between the President and his advisors are [sic] appropriate for disclosure.” [link]
And four Americans were being murdered at the very time that their commander-in-chief, his immediate subordinate, and the Secretary of Defense were meeting to discuss national security issues.
What did Obama do in response to the ongoing attack on American sovereignty?
At this point, the answers he's given - and not given - indicate he did nothing.
Which explains the "review board" and the general obfuscation.
Which are tantamount to an admission of guilt.
Which explains how four Americans were left to die at the hands of Muslim terrorists.
They deserved better than the bunch of cowards and incompetents who led them to their doom.
