Krauthammer: I think there is a bigger story here is the one that will in time come out. The biggest scandal of all, the biggest question of all 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? About 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 was 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, I think, has got to be uncovered.
