Leading from behind: Obama went to sleep Tuesday night without knowing what happened to Ambassador Stevens

In the IDF, the motto for all officers, and the ethos that they are taught is 'acharay' (follow me). Commanders lead their troops into battle. That is clearly not the case in Washington.

If you read this account of how and when President Obama knew what happened to US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens (pictured above being dragged through the streets of Benghazi), it is clear that Obama went to sleep Tuesday night without even bothering to confirm Stevens' fate.
A White House official said national security advisor Tom Donilon first briefed the president on the violence in Benghazi on Tuesday afternoon, at the top of a weekly meeting with the Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey.

The president was updated throughout the evening, and notified late Tuesday that Stevens was unaccounted for. Obama learned Wednesday that Stevens was confirmed dead Wednesday morning, the official said.
Maybe Obama was busy sorting out quarters for his trip to Las Vegas? By comparison, the night that the Navy Seals killed Osama Bin Laden, Mr. 'Gutsiest Call Ever' went on national television at 11:30 pm (6:30 am here in Israel) to announce it. But then, Chris Stevens isn't going to play any role in reelecting him anyway.

Chris Stevens was a career diplomat and not an Obama bundler like many other US ambassadors. Maybe that's why Obama couldn't give a damn about him.
