Rumsfeld Slams Obama for Absence During Benghazi Attack
Former Secretary of State Donald Rumsfeld slammed President Barack Obama for his handling of the Benghazi tragedy, criticizing him for not even calling a meeting while Americans were being attacked on September 11, 2012 and then opting to campaign in Las Vegas the day after the attack.
Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot Channel 125, Rumsfeld said it was astounding that Americans in Benghazi "were under attack and the president didn't even call a meeting." He said a leader "gets people in the room, sits them down," and then tries to find the truth about what happened.
"And then he went off to Las Vegas to a campaign event," Rumsfeld said. "That is not what leadership is."
