South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham grilled Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, and Joint Chiefs General Dempsey on the President’s involvement, or lack thereof.
Apparently, Senior Military Leaders only spoke with the President one time for a period of about 30 minutes. According to this Senate testimony, the President never made further inquiry about the status of the Consulate, or State Department personnel, until after the fact.
Graham also exposed the fact that there was no military response whatsoever during the 7-8 hour siege of the Consulate in Benghazi.
This is an extremely important piece of the Benghazi puzzle, and the senator should be applauded for bringing this information out.
