Somehow I doubt we will ever get any answers from the great leader...........

McKeon, whose committee has oversight over the U.S. military, wants to know exactly what the commander in chief did or did not tell the military to do that day.
“There appears to be a discrepancy between your directive and the actions taken by the Department of Defense," said in his letter to Obama. "As we are painfully aware, despite the fact that the military had resources in the area, the military did not deploy any assets to secure U.S. personnel in Benghazi during the hours the consulate and the annex were under attack. I find it implausible that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Commander of U.S. Africa Command, and the Commander of U.S. European Command would have ignored a direct order from the Commander in Chief.”

McKeon than listed four questions he is demanding that Obama answer:

1) “To whom did you issue this first directive and how was this directive communicated to the military and other agencies--verbally or in writing?“

2) "At any time on September 11, 2012, did you specifically direct the military to move available assets into Libya to ensure the safety of U.S. personnel in Benghazi? If so, which assets did you order to Libya?

3) "At any time on September 11, 2012, other than ISR assets, did you provide the authority for the military to take any and all necessary measures to secure U.S. personnel, including specifically the authority to enter Libyan airspace?

4) "Did you have any communication with the Secretary of Defense, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, or any Commanders of regional Combatant Commands regarding military support to U.S. personnel in Benghazi on September 11th? If so could you please describe any recommendations provided to you regarding available military support and any orders you gave them?"

Wouldn't that appear in Stars & Stripes www.stripes.com or Army Times or something if the Armed Services Chair was interested, or in some real news source?

Fat chance of getting any answers, some reporter asked 0bama that exact question twice and got zilch.

And yet, the fact that a month and a half after the 9/1 attack, and we still do not have any of those answers, does not tweak your interest in the least?
