President Obama visited Red Cross offices today and said something that he must only mean in the context of domestic issues which he can turn to his political advantage. Or perhaps it’s only valid when there is a camera nearby to capture his remarks:

This is a tough time for a lot of people; millions of folks all across the Eastern Seaboard, but America’s tougher. And we’re tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an American is in need, all of stand together to make sure we’re providing the help that’s necessary.

“…we leave nobody behind…”

Just last week, the facts of Benghazi refuted that line.

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that three urgent requests from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack nearly seven hours later were denied by officials in the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.

Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to “stand down.”

The fact is, President I Am My Brother’s Keeper has failed to help his brother George, and his administration did leave Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans behind in the face of a terrorist assault.

Obama went to bed not even knowing how that battle would turn out. He began to lie about the attack’s origins the following day, and then went to Las Vegas for a fundraiser.
