Benghazi Blackout: How the Big Three Networks Have Censored or Spun Obama's Deadly Foreign Policy Failure

On February 7 former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified that Barack Obama seemed disengaged on the night of the Benghazi attack. CBS’s Nancy Cordes, on the February 8 This Morning, reported: “Panetta revealed that he briefed the President at the start of the attack, but the two men did not speak again that night...Republicans say it’s a sign that the President was disengaged the night of the attack....he said as well that he did not speak to Secretary Clinton the night of the attack either.”

NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell, on the February 8 Today show, reported “Republicans pounced on testimony that after first informing the President about the attack, neither” Panetta or Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey “heard directly from him as the siege unfolded.”

ABC never mentioned Panetta’s disturbing revelation about the Commander-in-Chief.
