WH: 'Offensive' to Question Obama's Actions During Benghazi



Going on the offensive about President Obama’s mysterious whereabouts during the Benghazi terrorist attacks of September 11, 2012 that resulted in the deaths of four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said it was “offensive” for anyone to question whether the White House could have done more. The assertion “from Republicans” that Obama was not responsive enough during the attack, said Pfeiffer, is “offensive.”

“The premise of [the question on Obama’s whereabouts],” Pfeiffer explained, “is that somehow there was something that could have been done differently and would have changed the outcome here. The accountability review board has looked at this, people have looked at it.”

He called any theories about Obama’s failure to act “conspiracy theories.” He then set up a strawman by accusing Republicans of saying Obama “allowed this to happen.”

Obama’s whereabouts the night of the Benghazi attack remain unclear. Whether he could have done something remains similarly unclear, given lack of information about who ordered a military stand-down for forces ready to defend Americans in Benghazi, and whether Obama could have cut through red tape to make it happen were it feasible.
