I first brought it up with specificity in my Canada Free Press article titled The Benghazi Deception on May 16, comparing Obama’s missing “18 1/2 hours” during the time four Americans were being murdered to the 18 1/2 minute erasure of the Watergate tapes of the Nixon era. Exactly one week later, I clearly illustrated that Chris Wallace repeatedly asked David Pfeiffer, a top Obama official, “where was Obama” during the night when four Americans were murdered in Benghazi. Mr. Wallace did what a good newsman should do and repeated the question no fewer than eight-(8) times but never received an answer or explanation. Nothing, nada, zilch. Crickets.
Despite the professional tenacity and persistence of Mr. Wallace, Pfeiffer continually dodged the question, called his whereabouts irrelevant, and told the American people where “the one” was and that what he was doing was none of our business.
On May 23, a week after my column appeared, Rich Lowry, writing for Politico, asked Pfeiffer to “humor us” by merely telling us where Obama was and what he was doing on that “mystery night.” Mr. Lowry writes: “Obama’s actions and nonactions on that terrible night are a blank spot in his presidency. We don’t know much about them, and the White House has always been perfectly content to leave it that way.”
Anyone who has ever raised a teenager knows that a parent’s “need to know” is directly proportional to the teenager’s need to keep silent about some event in which they have engaged. The harder the teenager fights to keep their misdeeds under wraps, the more important it is for the responsible parent to learn exactly what took place – with precision. In the case of four murdered Americans and a Commander in Chief who was MIA, the American people not only deserve to know, but as responsible Americans, we need to know the location and activities of Obama during this period of murder and mayhem.
On May 26, we saw the stakes raised in an article by Kevin DuJan in HillBuzz under the title “Barack Obama Was High on Cocaine During ‘The Missing Hours’ of the Benghazi Attack Last September.” Mr. DuJan wrote: “If you’ve ever known anyone who is a drug addict, you’d see it’s obvious that Barack Obama was high on cocaine the night of Benghazi; it is the only logical explanation for his disappearance and the White House’s refusal to comment on what he was doing at the time. Since this was a night of great crisis for our country, the only logical reason that the White House won’t explain where the president was is if this man was high as a kite on illegal narcotics at the time.”
Mr. DuJan also commented about an e-mail he received from his friend Justine, an actress and model who ran in some interesting if not salacious circles back in the 1970s with “closeted gay men” like Rock Hudson. According to the article, Justine’s first instinct is that Obama might have been with (and we’re talking in a Biblical sense here) Reggie Love and didn’t want to be disturbed.
Perhaps the much-maligned author Larry Sinclair has some clairvoyant powers, or more likely, he does speak from experience when he titled his book Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair, Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder. I found it extremely interesting that Mr. Sinclair described, in graphic detail, Barack Hussein Obama’s reported cocaine use, sex, and even murder in his book; none of it, however, related to the night of Benghazi. Such activities were reserved for the back of a car and the anonymity of hotels while serving in the Illinois State Senate.
If we follow the line of thought offered by Messrs Lowry and DuJan, the interesting insight of “Justine,” and the written and spoken claims of Larry Sinclair, are we not seeing a disturbing emergence of a possible pattern of conduct? Given the written claims of Mr. Sinclair alone, are we, as citizens, not supposed to be a bit suspicious in the absence of any substantive information pertaining to Obama’s locations and activities on the night of September 11, 2012?
Those who have raised teenagers, are your senses not a bit troubled… are you not the least bit uncomfortable?
Writing as someone who has raised four teenagers and spent over a quarter century as an investigator in the private sector, I can tell you that my parental and investigative senses are as strong as the tingle that existed in Chris Matthew’s leg, although it’s not from excitement. Furthermore, I interviewed Larry Sinclair several months before his book was published and found him to be extremely credible and forthright. Unlike top Obama official David Pfeiffer, not once did he refuse to answer or dodge a question, regardless of how uncomfortable such questions were. And I did not have to ask one question eight times in eight different ways.
All the White House has to do is produce the authenticated logs of POTUS activities and his location that are maintained for every minute of every day within the walls of the people’s house. If he has nothing to hide, produce the records of who he was with, what he was doing, when he was doing it, where he was during this missing time, and why.
According to my source within the intelligence community, the answer to this question is one of the most critically important and revealing pieces of information that is being deliberately hidden from the American public.
There is no need to further insult the American people with elusiveness and semantics or add insult to the injury and death of Americans on the night of September 11, 2012. We need straight answers, and we need them now. Stop acting like your teenagers who believe that they are smarter than their parents or suspects that can outsmart the questions of professional investigators with convoluted semantics. Answer the question.
