What happened to the '3 o'clock phone call'?

My memory may be fading a little, but my first president was FDR. And over the years, I can’t think of any one of the Presidents not answering that call. But I think we may have had a disconnect with our long run of the U.S. working around the clock in emergency situations with the Benghazi attack killing 4 American patriots who felt they were in a situation of being taken care of. I know for a fact that many of our previous leaders did everything possible to assist in any situation threatening American citizens no matter where they were in the world.

I stand with Sen. Lindsey Graham in not giving up until there are some sound explanations instead of excuses to this operation. If I were in the Diplomatic service, I would have trouble volunteering to work in any country. One of the worst statements I have heard was “What difference does it make now?”
