Axelrod Refuses to Say Whether Obama Met with Nat’l Security Team Before Heading to Las Vegas
Wallace followed up on Axelrod’s non-answer by asking whether the President managed to squeeze in a meeting with the National Security Council before jetting off to Las Vegas for a campaign rally. Given Axelrod’s inability to produce a straightforward answer to the questions, it’s pretty clear the answer is “no.”Wow. Empty Chair can't even be bothered to go through the motions. He went to bed on September 11, 2012, knowing our ambassador to Libya was missing, and chose a campaign event over his real responsibilities the next day.

Recommended by McCarthy, this from Stephen Hayes:
There are two possibilities. Either the intelligence community had a detailed picture of what happened in Benghazi that night and failed to share it with other administration officials and the White House. Or the intelligence community provided that detailed intelligence picture to others in the administration, and Obama, Biden, Clinton, Susan Rice, and others ignored and manipulated the intelligence to tell a politically convenient—but highly inaccurate—story.Audio from Mark Steyn talking with Hugh Hewitt: Hillary Clinton used Libyan ambassador’s dead body ‘as prop to peddle a false narrative’
If it’s the former, DNI James Clapper should be fired. If it’s the latter, what happened in Benghazi—and what happened afterwards—will go down as one of the worst scandals in recent memory.
“If I were a Democrat — I don’t care what party this is,” Steyn said. “It doesn’t matter if they’re Republicans, if they’re Democrats or the Socialist Workers’ Party or the Raving Green Looney Party, if you support that party, you should be ashamed of a shriveled definition of politics, that it consumes even those who you claim are your friends, like Chris Stevens. He’s a real person. Sean Smith is a real person. Tyrone Woods is a real person. Glen Doherty — these are real people, not just props in Obama’s attempt to swing 1,200 soccer moms in southern Ohio.”Listen to the rest.
