Just a day after the violent attacks on our embassy in Egypt and four assassinations at our Consulate in Libya, Barack Hussein Obama chose to attend a fundraiser for him in Las Vegas, rather than some boring intel briefing in the Oval office.
Front Porch Politics (H/T Susan K) How long had it been since President Obama attended his daily intelligence meeting in the lead-up to the Sept. 11 attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Egypt and Libya? After all, our adversaries are known to use the anniversary of 9/11 to target the United States.
According to the public schedule of the president, the last time the Obama attended his daily intelligence meeting was Sept. 5th — a week before Islamic terrorists stormed our embassy in Cairo and terrorists killed our ambassador to Tripoli.
The president was scheduled to hold the intelligence meeting at 10:50 a.m. Wednesday, the day after the attacks, but it was canceled so that he could comfort grieving employees at the State Department. But instead of rescheduling the intelligence briefing for later in the day, Obama apparently chose to skip it altogether and attend a Las Vegas fundraiser for his re-election campaign. One day after a terrorist attack.
