Posted on 10/28/2012 5:32:22 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said Saturday he has sources saying President Barack Obama was in the room at the White House watching the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya unfold.
Two unarmed U.S. drones were dispatched to the consulate and recorded the final hours of the attack, which killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
This was in the middle of the business day in Washington, so everybody at the White House, CIA, Pentagon, everybody was watching this go down, Shaffer said on Fox News Justice with Judge Jeanine. According to my sources, yes, [Obama] was one of those in the White House Situation Room in real-time watching this.
Shaffer served as a senior operations officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency in Afghanistan in 2003 and wrote a book critical of the policies there. The U.S. government purchased the entire print run for $47,000 in an attempt at censorship just before its 2010 publication, claiming it contained classified material.
Shaffer said the question now is what precisely Obama did or didnt do in the moments he saw the attack unfolding. The CIA reportedly made three urgent requests for military backup that were each denied...........

Sen. Graham On Obamas Libya Remarks: Sounds Like A Lot Of B.S.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., continues to pummel the White House over a deadly consulate attack in Libya, on Friday labeling comments by President Barack Obama a lot of B.S.
Grahams sharp criticism was followed soon on Friday (Oct. 26) after by him joining fellow GOP Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire in urging the Pentagon, CIA and Justice Department to declassify all surveillance footage of the events at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left the U.S. ambassador and three others dead.
Noticed that too. Double coverage of the storm that isn’t yet a storm.
America has a pRes_ _ent who gets his orgasms by watching
Americans be murdered in cold blood, and by watching
the Twin Towers collapse onto 3000 Americans.
I have NEVER been so ashamed of this country.
My bet is that Obama could not make this decision by himself and sought counsel from his political operatives, Axelrod, Ploufe and especially Valery Jarret who advised him to do nothing. It has been rumored that Jarret quashed two opportunities to kill Bin Laden and is a lot like Obama’s Lady McBeth.
NOAA is doing everthing it can to get Obama’s complicity in Benghazi off the front page.
Looks like not much on the Sundays shows???
Video: Pat Caddell lets loose!
Yes it is odd that he isn’t continuing the pressure. He still has the previous stories in his archives.
Analyze until you paralyze, then apologize.
The job is STILL above his pay grade. Even with an army of “czars” to provide “advice and consent”.
I blame Valerie Jarrett, the Muslim mole in the White Hut, and unofficially the acting president.
AP Report: 150 Gunmen Involved In Benghazi Attack, Arrived In Trucks That Bore The Logo Of Ansar Al-Sharia .
Versus a couple of local security guards who were never taught how to fire their weapons.
TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) It began around nightfall on Sept. 11 with around 150 bearded gunmen, some wearing the Afghan-style tunics favored by Islamic militants, sealing off the streets leading to the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. They set up roadblocks with pick-up trucks mounted with heavy machine guns, according to witnesses.
The trucks bore the logo of Ansar al-Shariah, a powerful local group of Islamist militants who worked with the municipal government to manage security in Benghazi, the main city in eastern Libya and birthplace of the uprising last year that ousted Moammar Gadhafi after a 42-year dictatorship.
The newest AP mop up and leave wiggle room because this scandal isnt dying story:
If true—this is the greatest disgrace our nation has ever held. An act of treason at worst, incompetence at best. What was he thinking? He’s banking on the USA forgetting this like it did Fast and Furious and all the other “little” things that didn’t work out. I was shocked to see Hillary playing along with this—he must have something on her. Even she looked disgusted—like she was sucking on a lemon. The truth must come out! Why were these people left out to dry? Why did they have to die? I believe there was more too this than meets the eye. I believe —when all is said and done—that what was done was some dirty plot to keep power! Obama must go!
Beat me to it!!
.....The American special operators, Woods, Doherty and at least two others were part of the Global Response Staff, a CIA element, based at the CIA annex and were protecting CIA operators who were part of a mission to track and repurchase arms in Benghazi that had proliferated in the wake of Muammar Qaddafis fall. Part of their mission was to find the more than 20,000 missing MANPADS, or shoulder-held missiles capable of bringing down a commercial aircraft. According to a source on the ground at the time of the attack, the team inside the CIA annex had captured three Libyan attackers and was forced to hand them over to the Libyans. U.S. officials do not know what happened to those three attackers and whether they were released by the Libyan forces.......
It is very sad to say, and I really don’t mean to offend anyone, but Obama is Chauncey Gardner. Likes to watch.
btw ... Thank You for this thread.
