“Rogue”U.S. General Arrested for Activating Special Forces Teams; Ignoring Libya Stand-Down Order
The Tea Party Tribune ^ | October 28th, 2012 | The Daily Sheeple

Posted on 10/29/2012 6:00:47 PM PDT by Texas Fossil

The official story surrounding the events of September 11, 2012 in Bengzahi, Libya which left four Americans dead, has now officially fallen apart.

After numerous flips and flops by the Obama administration, which originally attempted to paint the incident as a Muslim outcry over an anti-Islamic video, whistle blowers throughout the U.S. government, including within the White House, the State Department, national intelligence agencies and the U.S.military have made available stunning details that suggest not only did operational commanders have live visual and audio communications from drones overhead and intelligence assets on the ground, but that some commanders within the military were prepared to go-it-alone after being told to “stand down.”

Africom commanding officer U.S. General Carter Ham, after being ordered to essentially surrender control of the situation to alleged Al Queda terrorists and let Americans on the ground die, made the unilateral decision to ignore orders from the Secretary of Defense and activated special operations teams at his disposal for immediate deployment to the area.

According to reports, once the General went rogue he was arrested within minutes by his second in command and relieved of duty.

--

“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place,” Panetta told Pentagon reporters. “And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”

The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.

General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.

--

The question now is whether the American people will hold to account the chain of command responsible for leaving our people behind, fabricating a politically expedient story, and continuing to sell the now defunct lie(s) even after all of their variations of the story were found to be false and misleading.

A General who made the decision to assist diplomatic and intelligence assets on the ground has been arrested and will likely be retired or worse, while those who ordered the removal of embassy security details and ordered U.S. forces to stand-down are left to go on about their business and likely risk more American lives in the future.

In some circles the actions of those at the very top of the command structure during the Bengzahi attacks would be considered traitorous.

If this is true, and I think it may be, what did Obozo and Panetta have planned in Bengazi?

Very Very Bad Crap.

FUBO! and Panetta.

General Ham is one of two high ranking officials to get relieved of command. I forget the admiral's name but he was in charge of the Stennis battle group. He did essentially the same thing as Ham. He refused to stand down and within 30 seconds was relieved by the next highest officer.
If Obama can do this action in 30 seconds, the SOB was watching real time the disaster happening in Benghazi.
It's too late to impeach the SOB, plus who would want Biden as CinC? NOT ME!!

Reporters all voting for Obama?

Here’s the latest on Gen Ham. Congressional investigation says Ham stated he was not ordered to intervene.

There’s a contradiction between the two above Ham.

1. Obama says his first order was to secure the facility and make sure everyone was okay (in the 2nd debate and in the Denver reporter interview).

2. Panetta says that you don’t send troops into harms way without knowing everything etc.

Also contradicts that forces were sent from Tripoli (Marines) immediately.

37 people were saved by Woods and the other SEAL acting fast. (Woods’ father said 30 in the Megyn Kelly interview).

Hopefully we’ll see all the players in open testimony before Congress.

Completely bogus nonsense. GEN Ham remains in command of AFRICOM. This author has no idea what GEN Ham did or did not do.

However, the rest of the ignorant tin foil hat crowd will soon flock in and start spouting their own fantasies. Beats watching the hurricane news, I suppose.

He was “not requested to do so.”

Here’s the info:

http://frontpagemag.com/2012/dgreenfield/benghazigate-general-ham-no-order-to-protect-consulate-video/

This story, even if not accurate, still raises the right question: Were troops ready to go? Who gave the order for them NOT to go if they were ready?

Above the 4 star General Ham is Sec of D and POTUS.

POTUS says he gave the order.

Panetta now says he didn’t carry it out because he didn’t have enough information.

All of it ain’t adding up!

Relief from a command means you take the long walk away from the unit and don’t come back. They wouldn’t just let him stay there. Too much confusion. Which boss do you follow? There may have been a threat, but relief, nope. Leave the old boss there to possibly cause problems? Nope.

“It’s too late to impeach the SOB”

I keep hearing this.... To hell with this.. When we kick this traitor out of office in 8 days. The investigation needs to continue and when the information finds out that Obama let these people die, he needs to stand trial for murder and if found guilty, hung by the neck until DEAD.

Impeachment is to small a punsishment for murder. Hanging if he is found guilty for leaving heros to die, it is a just reward for a coward. And if we need more than one noose, provide it. We need to stop this abuse of power now.

His wife? That’d be a good story. If some incident like this did happen, to cover their a** and for him to retire as four star they may have made a deal.

But check this out:

Question 2: Leon Panetta said this (3) about sending military assistance to the annex:

We quickly responded, as General Dempsey said, in terms of our deploying forces to the region. We had fast platoons in the region. We had ships that we had deployed off of Libya, and we were prepared to respond to any contingency and certainly had forces in place to do that. But as a basic principle here – the basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on, without having some real time information about what’s taking place. And as a result of not having that kind of information the commander who was on the ground in that area, General Ham, General Dempsey, and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.

The fact is, American assistance WAS sent from Tripoli that night, but it was not military assistance. Who were the 8 guys sent from Tripoli working for? It is logical to assume they were CIA agents or on their payroll. Notice, in the State Department briefing of Oct. 9th, they do not describe the Tripoli contingent other than this:

As the night goes on, a team of reinforcements from Embassy Tripoli arrives by chartered aircraft at Benghazi airport and makes its way to the compound.

So what we have here is the first huge contradiction between Panetta and the military and the CIA. SOMEONE sent those guys from Tripoli, but it was not the military. Why was it ok to send 8 lightly armed American guys from Tripoli into harm’s way to rescue 30+ people in Benghazi, but not ok to send a heavily armed special forces contingent who have trained for just such a scenario?

The State Dept. was asked about the Tripoli 8 on Oct. 9th and here was their response:

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL NUMBER TWO: The calls were made to Tripoli at the moment that the – at the same time the agent in the [Tactical Operations Center] sounded the alarm and then proceeded to make calls. I’m not going to go into any details about the number of security personnel who moved.

Notice the State Dept. refers to them as “security personnel.” Whose security personnel? Why only 8 sent (notice State Dept won’t give number sent)?

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/10/benghazi-a-reader-assesses-the-evidence.php

37 people were evacuated. Apparently there was a response (an early NBC story from 9/12 said Marines were sent from Tripoli; a later Big Gov story said no Marines were in Libya at the time!)

Another thing to look into was the regional security guy for Libya apparently mounted a counter offensive but there were too many insurgents. This man on 9/12 said it was a terrorist attack and not a YouTube video riot. He was fired a week later. Deputy Interior Minister Wanis Al-Sharif.

Anyone interview him after he was fired?

The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place

E-mails??? Whoever wrote this has no idea how special forces communicate with their commanders, especially during crisis.

I BELIEVE THIS IS BAD INFO!

General Carter Ham (USA) was and still is the Commander of US Africa Command. His second in command was and is Vice Admiral Leidig (USN) - not another general, as claimed in a similar, earlier report. While it is true that Obama has since nominated LtGen David Rodriguez to succeed General Ham as the new commander of USAFRICOM, that nomination awaits Senate confirmation and LtGen Rodriguez remains in his current billet at the head of US Army Forces Command at Ft. Bragg. General Ham remains in command of USAFRICOM in Stuttgart.

If it is true that VAdm Leidig indeed arrested General Ham, it would have been on the direct order of the President - and I doubt that the general would still remain in command almost 7 weeks later. This situation is bad enough without taking it to the looney level.

I am not sure about that basic principle...you had people under attack. You were watching them and apparently in some sort of communication, Mr. Wood I understand, was painting targets and waiting for missle strikes.

WTF??

You telling me that a humvee under attack in Afghanistan is left to go it alone because you don’t know the situation?

It all stinks.

But I would like to hear from General Ham.

I have not seen anything indicating that.

At this level, I doubt if he were removed it would be discussed openly. Because of the political ramifications for Obozo.

Is the rumor true? Not sure.

I have seen some evidence posted here and on another thread that indicate it may be wrong info, or partially wrong info.

At this point it would not upset me if the Moderator removed this post.

So, who is the arresting officer?

I had the same question;
I think the headline goes too far.
He'd be relieved of command on orders from someone up his chain of command,
not arrested.
(Although I'd expect some muscle in the area when his #2 broke the news.)

The questions now are (1) will he go quietly or will he continue to stand up?
(2) What will not going quietly cost him?
(3)Will Pertreaus take the fall for Panetta/Clinton/Hussein?

He hasn’t been charged, yet. He could resign and go to Cuba. Nobody would come to get him. If this thing goes to hearings and trials, it’s the end of the Democrat party. I know it’s tough, but is he more important than the party?

Whatever happened to that tried and true military axiom of get there “the first with the most.” McCain is right about one aspect of this... if there were no military assets at a state of readiness, in that part of the world, on that particular day, after the events of the preceding months...

Official denials

 
UPDATE: On Sunday October 28 I received the following communique from Pentagon Press Secretary George Little: 
“The insinuations in your story are flat wrong.  General Ham is an outstanding leader of AFRICOM.  Future leadership changes at this important command have absolutely nothing to do with the attack on American personnel in Benghazi.  The leadership changes have been long planned.” 
Of course I never suggested that General Ham was anything other than an outstanding leader of AFRICOM and in fact said as much. But why is an outstanding leader of this important command leaving after less than two years when all other combatant commanders have longer tenures? General Ham’s predecessor stayed in the job much longer and was generally less well regarded. Further discussion of these issues may help begin to restore the administration’s credibility on the Benghazi issue.
 
UPDATE 2: On Monday October 29 General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, released the following statement:
“The speculation that General Carter Ham is departing Africa Command (AFRICOM) due to events in Benghazi, Libya on 11 September 2012 is absolutely false. General Ham’s departure is part of routine succession planning that has been on going since July. He continues to serve in AFRICOM with my complete confidence.”

I agree, BUT what is more credible about reporting things on the DemCommies? The LA Time, NY Times, Washington Post? Or some obscure blogger.

In today’s world, the bloggers generally win.

I am not saying this is a reliable source.

Now, there is enough smoke surrounding Bengazi that some need to be tried & punished.

Totally agree. This Benghazi thing stinks to high heaven and I don’t know HOW in the WORLD they can keep it contained.

Unless there is not a shred of integrity left in the military or intelligence community, someone whistleblower(s) will have to speak out.

What I read somewhere is that General Ham was relieved of duty and still technically listed as “in Charge” because it takes Congress to approve his replacement and that hasn’t been voted on yet. Don’t know if that is right or not though.
