This is EXTREMELY significant. Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer – perhaps best known for his work on Able Danger and his subsequent battle with the Defense Intelligence Agency – told Fox News that his sources told him Barack Obama was in the situation room and watched the events in Benghazi unfold in real time.
Pay close attention beginning at the 1:00 mark. Shaffer underscores an important point, saying that not only did the incoming video from Benghazi capture everyone’s attention but that it was taking place at the height of the work day in Washington (between 4-5pm) when a lot of people would have been around.
Also, take note that both Shaffer and the other guest (Col. David Hunt) say that the decision to act would have come (or not) from the President and through the Secretary of Defense (Leon Panetta). If Shaffer is right, Obama is quite culpable.
This is big, folks. The herd of possible culprits is thinning and Barack Obama appears to be front and center.
