When Fox News political analyst Charles Krauthammer speaks, it would be wise to listen.
In an appearance Tuesday on the O’Reilly Factor, Krauthammer notes that the media’s coverage of Benghazi has focused on the cover-up, but “the biggest scandal of all, the biggest question is what was the president doing in those eight hours?”
It’s a question rarely asked and when Fox News host Chris Wallace did inquire with Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer, it was explained that President Obama’s actions during this time are an “irrelevant fact.”
“I think there is a bigger story here that will in time come out,” Krauthammer tells host Bill O’Reilly. “The biggest scandal of all, the biggest question is what was the president doing in those eight hours?”
“He had a routine meeting at five o’clock. He never after, during the eight hours when our guys have their lives in danger, he never called the Secretary of Defense, he never calls the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, he never called the CIA Director. Who does he call?
“But five hours in he calls the Secretary of State. And after the phone call she releases a statement essentially about the video and how we denounce any intolerance. It looks as if the only phone call is to construct a cover story at a time when the last two Americans who died were still alive and fighting for their lives.
There’s the scandal and that has to be uncovered.”
