Obama Mourns Death Of Embassy Staff
By partying in Las Vegas baby!
Since our beloved media has chosen to go wall-to-wall with their absurd "gaffy-horserace-optics" meta narrative, might they also get the vapors over what our sitting Commander-in-Chief is up to tonight? Do me a favor and go read (or re-read) these posts. How many urgent, distressing, open questions still remain in this ongoing crisis, as the American death toll climbs to six? With all that in mind, ta-da:
President Barack Obama’s Wednesday afternoon speech in Las Vegas is being delayed by about 45 minutes, according to the White House. Obama had been scheduled to speak at 5:25 p.m. at a campaign rally at the Cashman Center in downtown Las Vegas. He will now deliver his speech at 6:10 p.m., according to an updated schedule released Wednesday morning. The president was forced to alter his schedule to comment on a Tuesday attack on the American Embassy in Libya that killed four people, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, the White House Press Office said. No other event details have changed, and doors will still open to the public at 3 p.m., according to an Obama campaign official. Wednesday’s visit will be Obama’s eighth trip to Nevada this year.
A 45 minute speech delay. That's it. Carry on, Mr. President -- we all know campaigning is really, really important. (Also, this happened). Incidentally, is anyone slightly more interested in this story now? On Monday, the Associated Press reported that Obama was briefed on US preparedness abroad for potential 9/11 fallout:
The White House said Monday the president and his advisers discussed specific measures the administration was taking to prevent 9/11-related attacks. They also discussed steps that were being taken to protect Americans abroad and U.S. forces serving in combat zones.
So, how did that turn out?
