Panetta, Dempsey did not speak to Clinton.

Neither the secretary of defense nor the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke to the secretary of state during the 8-hour attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. At a Thursday hearing in the Senate, Republican Ted Cruz asked both Leon Panetta and Martin Dempsey, “In between 9:42 p.m., Benghazi time, when the first attacks started, and 5:15 am, when Mr. Doherty and Mr. Woods lost their lives, what converations did either of you have with Secretary Clinton?”

“We did not have any conversations with Secretary Clinton,” Panetta responded.

“And General Dempsey, the same is true for you?” Cruz asked. Dempsey confirmed this. Watch the video

    Implausible deniability, but WDDIM? The fix is in.

    At this point in time, what difference does it make?

    They’re Liberal/Progs and don’t have to answer to anyone.

    That’s fine with me thirdtwin. I like your P-38. Wish we had one at the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks here in Connecticut.

    You probably would not be surprised to learn how many times I have to explain to people what a piece of crap Che was when I’m wearing my Dead Che shirt in public (available at The People’s Cube by the way)

    Dan, thanks for the link. That is the best collection of aircraft I have ever seen. I see a future Summer vacation there.

    They had a lot of planes lost or damaged when a fairly rare, for us, tornado went right though the museum in 1979.

    If you like aviation, they have a good variety of planes and displays. Being mechanically inclined, I like the engine exhibit the best. The Gee Bee was built from original plans supplied by the the family of the Granville brothers who built the originals in Springfield, Mass.

    Panetta, Dempsey, Clinton, Obama. Not exactly the crew I want watching my back when I’m under fire. Nuts!
