BENGHAZI PING

The reason given for the investigation was allegations of “inappropriate leadership and judgment.” Officials have stressed that the accusations are not about personal misbehavior, such as drinking or sexual harassment.

Research of the Stennis’ location indicates that the aircraft carrier was oceans away from the scene on Sept. 11.

Deploying four months early, the flattop left its home port of Bremerton, Wash., on Aug. 22 and headed south to pick up the San Diego-based cruiser Mobile Bay and two North Island Naval Air Station helicopter squadrons.

The group sailed out of San Diego Bay on Sept. 1.

On Sept. 11, the ships were still in the Pacific, according to a Facebook video of a Sept. 11, 2001, remembrance ceremony held that day in the Stennis hangar bay and a Navy photo of the event.

On Sept. 15, the ship posted a Facebook video in which Gaouette said that the carrier group was in the Pacific, heading toward the Indian Ocean. In late September, the ship stopped in Malaysia. In early October, it performed exercises off Thailand with the aircraft carrier George Washington.

On Oct. 17, the strike group first entered the U. S. Fifth Fleet region, which is the Arabian Sea and surroundings.

A naval official familiar with the area said that only a warship located in the Mediterranean or Red seas might have helped the Americans attacked in Libya.

A search of the site did not immediately reveal the article.

He might have been removed because he’s not gay. Obama seems to have been stacking the military with gays.

You’re probably not reading it right. It was a 2001 REMBERANCE VIDEO. IOW after fact memorial shown that day Sept 11, 2012 on the aniversary of 9/11/01 I think is the point. A Memorial {Rememberance} was held on the Hanger Bay 9/11/2012 is the way I read it.

What difference does it make.

The Navy and the IG will say anything they are told to say.

Re-read it....That’s what I thought at first. Maybe I’m wrong but it sounds like it’s written to CONFUSE readers.

And I still haven’t seen any report about why Gaouette was removed. Has anyone else seen anything?

That is what I had heard at the time.

If that were true, if he had not stood down, then the outcome in Benghazi would have been different. No help arrived, therefore no one broke the order to stand down.

And the admiral won[t be available to answer questions, may not even be locatable.

And I still haven't seen one word about where the ships of the Sixth Fleet were on 9/11/2012.
