The empty chair on 9/11

Major Gen­eral Gun­ther Blu­men­tritt: This is his­tory. We are liv­ing a his­tor­i­cal moment. We are going to lose the war because our glo­ri­ous Führer has taken a sleep­ing pill and is not to be awak­ened. It’s unbe­liev­able. Think of it Kurt. Don’t ever for­get it. We are wit­ness­ing some­thing that his­to­ri­ans will always say is com­pletely improb­a­ble, and yet it is true. The Führer is not to be awak­ened! I some­times won­der whose side God is on

Do you remem­ber when Clint East­wood did his empty chair bit at the GOP con­ven­tion. The left berated him as an old senile weirdo.

Then came the Den­ver Debate and the New Yorker Cover, con­ser­v­a­tives laughed and lib­er­als panicked.

While some thought it a joke and some thought it a farce the true mean­ing of the empty chair was never clearer than it was at the Beng­hazi hear­ings.

Under ques­tion­ing from South Car­olina Repub­li­can Sen. Lind­sey Gra­ham, Defense Sec­re­tary Leon Panetta could not explain why Pres­i­dent Barack Obama spoke with him only once on Sept. 11, 2012 dur­ing the Beng­hazi ter­ror­ist attack, and never called back for any updates for over seven hours.

The actual tes­ti­mony is astounding:

Sen Lind­sey Gra­ham (R-​SC).…And my ques­tion to you is dur­ing that eight-​hour period, did the pres­i­dent show any curios­ity about how’s this going, what kind of assets do you have help­ing these peo­ple? Did he ever make that phone call?

SEC. PANETTA: Look, there is no ques­tion in my mind that the pres­i­dent of the United States was con­cerned about Amer­i­can lives and, frankly, all of us were con­cerned about Amer­i­can lives.

SEN. GRA­HAM: With all due respect, I don’t believe that’s a cred­i­ble state­ment if he never called and asked you, are we help­ing these peo­ple; what’s hap­pen­ing to them?

And the exchange between Sec Panetta & Sen Kelly Ayotte was sim­ply incred­i­ble:

Ed Mor­ris­sey is incred­u­lous as is Ace over the state­ments of the head of the Joint Chiefs of staff (as well he should be) but for all of that incom­pe­tence of man with the stars and all the snark of the Leon “Global 911″ Panetta there is only one story here:

The story is that on 911 dur­ing an attack on Amer­i­cans in Beng­hazi (includ­ing a per­son he knew per­son­ally) the Pres­i­dent of the United States was unin­ter­ested.

Yes­ter­day Ace wrote a story titled: I always won­dered what hap­pened to that empty chair say­ing it was it Reince Priebus office.

He’s wrong.

The empty chair is in the White House, we as a nation put it there…

…and Amer­i­cans were left to die.

Update: Should have said “unin­ter­ested” instead of “dis­in­ter­ested” cor­rected. Thanks guys.

Major General Gunther Blumentritt: This is history. We are living a historical moment. We are going to lose the war because our glorious Führer has taken a sleeping pill and is not to be awakened. It’s unbelievable. Think of it Kurt. Don’t ever forget it. We are witnessing something that historians will always say is completely improbable, and yet it is true. The Führer is not to be awakened!  I sometimes wonder whose side God is on

Do you remember when Clint Eastwood did his empty chair bit at the GOP convention. The left berated him as an old senile weirdo.

Then came the Denver Debate and the New Yorker Cover, conservatives laughed and liberals panicked.

While some thought it a joke and some thought it a farce the true meaning of the empty chair was never clearer than it was at the Benghazi hearings.

Under questioning from South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta could not explain why President Barack Obama spoke with him only once on Sept. 11, 2012 during the Benghazi terrorist attack, and never called back for any updates for over seven hours.

The actual testimony is astounding:

Sen Lindsey Graham (R-SC)….And my question to you is during that eight-hour period, did the president show any curiosity about how’s this going, what kind of assets do you have helping these people? Did he ever make that phone call?

SEC. PANETTA: Look, there is no question in my mind that the president of the United States was concerned about American lives and, frankly, all of us were concerned about American lives.

SEN. GRAHAM: With all due respect, I don’t believe that’s a credible statement if he never called and asked you, are we helping these people; what’s happening to them?

And the exchange between Sec Panetta & Sen Kelly Ayotte was simply incredible:

Ed Morrissey is incredulous as is Ace over the statements of the head of the Joint Chiefs of staff (as well he should be) but for all of that incompetence of man with the stars and all the snark of the Leon “Global 911″ Panetta there is only one story here:

The story is that on 9/11 during an attack on Americans in Benghazi (including a person he knew personally) the President of the United States was uninterested.

Yesterday Ace wrote a story titled: I always wondered what happened to that empty chair saying it was it Reince Priebus office.

He’s wrong.

The empty chair is in the White House, we as a nation put it there…

…and Americans were left to die.

Update: Should have said “uninterested” instead of “disinterested” corrected. Thanks guys.
