And why does the White House want to keep it a secret?
When Navy Seals killed Osama bin Laden the White House was only too eager to release photos showing Obama in the Situation Room and to discuss the raid in detail. When asked where Obama was during the time our people in Benghazi were being killed by Al Queda terrorists on September 11, 2012 the White House has refused to answer. The question is why?
On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace repeatedly asked White House Communications Director Dan Pfieffer where Obama was during the attack. Pfieffer refused to answer [video] and claimed the information was "irrelevant," a word he used multiple times on Sunday news shows to dismiss the seriousness of White House scandals.
Why not answer a simple question?
What was Obama doing? Obviously if he had been in command of the crisis it would help their case to release the information so we can only conclude that he was occupied elsewhere. But what could be more important than to have the Commander in Chief in the chair during such a crisis. It's been thirty years since a U.S. Ambassador was killed in the line of duty. Didn't this situation warrant Obama's direct personal attention?
Was Obama upstairs in the residence having dinner with Michelle? Certainly the image of Obama dining while Americans were dying is not one the White House would like to promote.
Or, it's possible that the White House goal here is to stir up conspiracy theories the same way they manipulated the "birthers" who thought Obama was born in Kenya. If so, it would be a damnable thing to willfully work to incite distrust and suspicion on the part of the American people.
I'm reminded again of this famous Obama quote: ‘The only people that don’t want to disclose the truth, are people with something to hide.”
