As House investigators gear up for a new probe of Benghazi, one question they'll likely pursue is what President Obama did or didn't do on the night that the terrorist attack was unfolding 20 months ago.
Former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said this week that changing administration talking points on the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi wasn't anything out of the ordinary and that a newly unearthed email showing a top national security aide coaching others on how to respond to questions on the attack "tells us nothing new."
As the hour grew late on the night of Sept. 14, the White House wanted to make one thing clear to the State Department and the CIA as the three collaborated on what would come to be known as the Benghazi "talking points," designed to be used by Congress and administration officials to explain what had happened three days earlier at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.
A year after President Obama largely defused a diplomatic showdown at the United Nations over Palestinian statehood, his difficulties with the Muslim world are multiplying rapidly as he prepares to address the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday.
President Obama's nominee for deputy secretary of state has earned more than $8 million in salary and bonuses since January 2009 as an executive at a Wall Street bank that received a federal bailout.
On May 1, former National Security Administration spokesman Tommy Vietor admitted to Bret Baier on Fox News that Mr. Obama never even entered the White House situation room all night, as the attack continued.
Mr. Vietor, who was in the Situation Room, said the president was in the White House residence at the time of the call.
