Retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said Saturday on Fox News that sources told him President Barack Obama was in the White House Situation Room watching the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya as it unfolded.

Two unarmed U.S. drones were dispatched to the consulate, recording and transmitting the final hours of the attack, which killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

“This was in the middle of the business day in Washington, so everybody at the White House, CIA, Pentagon, everybody was watching this go down,” Shaffer said. “According to my sources, yes, [Obama] was one of those in the White House Situation Room in real-time watching this.”

Shaffer served as a senior operations officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency in Afghanistan in 2003 and wrote a book critical of the policies there, which the U.S. government prevented from being distributed because it allegedly contained information that compromised security.

Shaffer said the question now is what precisely Obama did or didn’t do in the moments he saw the attack unfolding. The CIA reportedly made three urgent requests for military backup that were each denied.

“He, only he, could issue a directive to Secretary of Defense Panetta to do something. That’s the only place it could be done,” Shaffer said.

Col. David Hunt, a Fox News military analyst, said the military could have had jets in the air within 20 minutes and forces on the ground within two hours.

“The issue is always political with the White House, but the secretary of defense gives the order, has to be approved by the White House, they wouldn’t pull the trigger, and it’s disgraceful,” Hunt said. “We’ve got guys dead.”

It's not Obama's job to analyses live video coverage. He doesn't have the skills or experience for that job.

Ron posted a Glenn Beck video on another thread, and is too embarrassed to post it here.

And help was on the way if it had lasted longer. Troops were mobilized to Italy, which is only an hour away.

Questions of what resources are available is good, but saying Obama stopped rescue efforts is dumb.

But Ron, where were the Marines? How quickly could they be mobilized and transported?

These are the questions you should be working on, not watching Glenn Beck videos.

remember, its a known fact intel was given back in AUGUST of upcoming attacks, with 911 being AN OBVIOUS target date. Any person with more than two brain cells to rub together would figure that one out. That was mistake number 1....

Good, you seem to recognize that there were not immediate resources available.

It was 9/11 all over the world, not just Benghazi.

intel was behghazi specific. help was 40 min to an hour away. battle lasted 7. Those TWO remaining guys gave em HELL from a roof top for hours...The ones that sent messages out as they went from the safe house to engage the enemies at the consulate. Their calls got nothing. Ill bet i know what they were thinking..

Where and what was this help 40 minutes away?

Did Obama order them to stand down?

Glenn Beck or 'I have this buddy...' doesn't count as evidence.

You gotta admit - the republicans are like a dog with a bone when it comes to stupid....its unreal..

It's quite pointless trying to argue with someone like Ron. If Obama would have given the decision to send in the Marines in real time--and then another 5 or 10 of them were killed attempting a rescue (a real possibility) he'd just be bitching about Obama sending in the Marines.

The Pentagon said it moved a team of special operators from Central Europe to Sigonella, Italy — about an hour flight from Libya — but gave no other details.
Fighter jets and Specter AC-130 gunships — which could have been used to help disperse the bloodthirsty mob — were also stationed at three nearby bases, sources told the network. Source: Fox Nation
