PANETTA: Outs Obama On Benghazi, ‘We KNEW It Was A Terrorist Attack’

Check out Leon’s take on the Obama snake. I hope Mr. Panetta has good security.  Check it out.

On the night of the Benghazi attacks, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said he told President Barack Obama that it was the work of terrorists.

Panetta said that he told the president “there was an attack by terrorists” in part two of an interview tonight with Bill O’Reilly.

During his Super Bowl interview with O’Reilly, Obama said Panetta told him that there was an attack on the compound and that officials didn’t know yet who had done it.

O’Reilly Presses Panetta: ‘Do Our Enemies Fear Us?’

O’Reilly pressed Panetta on Susan Rice’s statements to the media that Benghazi was a spontaneous attack, not terrorism.

“I thought those talking points, frankly, were not on point […] there was no question in my mind that it was a terrorist attack,” Panetta said.

Bill O’Reilly pressed former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta tonight on President Barack Obama’s foreign policy and the world’s perception of the U.S.

The two discussed the Iraq troop withdrawal, and Panetta told O’Reilly that there’s “no question” that failing to maintain a troop presence was a mistake. Panetta said that he made a strong case that the U.S. needed to keep at least 10,000 troops in Iraq. While Obama supported that, Panetta said “the real issue was how hard did he fight to make it happen.”

O’Reilly slammed the administration for being caught by surprise on everything,

“The big picture is the Obama administration doesn’t know what the deuce is going on,” O’Reilly charged.

“I think the big picture is that this is a president who I think wants to do the right thing for the country,” Panetta responded. “The real question is whether or not he’s willing to fight to get that done.”
