Benghazi Debacle- Obama MIA Night of Attack, No Help Sent Once Attack Underway
Flopping Aces ^ | 02-07-13 | Curt

Posted on 02/07/2013 11:06:57 AM PST by Starman417

Today's hearing on Benghazi is just sad. We have the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the outgoing Secretary of Defense testifying to the Senate hearing that even though it was 9/11, who everyone and their mother understood is the anniversary of the worst attack on American soil...even though, due in no small part to Obama's actions, Libya had become a hotbed of al-Qaeda activity, AND even though the ambassador to Libya had sent warning of impending threats, they did nothing to ensure the security of the embassy and our citizens.

Their excuse?

“The United States military is not and should not be a global 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world,”

Bull***t.

No one expects our military to have assets in place everywhere but everyone expects them to have assets in place where an attack is most likely to happen.

The President, the Vice President, the CIA, the State Department and our military didn't know that Libya had been over-run with al-Qaeda? They didn't know it was 9/11? They didn't know about the warnings sent by Ambassador Stevens?

Bull***t bull***t bull***t.

And the Chairman was a bit surprised himself to learn that Hillary Clinton testified she didn't know of the cables sent by the Ambassador:

When asked by Lindsey Graham if ANY assets were moved to help those under attack the answer by the chairman was

NO.

Got that?

No one was sent to help them.

Wherever our Ambassadors are, WE SHOULD BE PREPARED TO DEFEND THEM!! I’m thinkin’ Benghazi was a PRISON. No interviews or testimony from the 37 evacuees says ‘PRISON’ loud and clear. A prison run by the CIA, illegal even under 0bama’s weak standards. IMPEACH OBAMA!

Why would Obama want weapons going to the opposition in Syria?

Q: Why did the First Undocumented Moslem-Communist
sleep so well that night?

A: Because he KNEW that MANPADs and WMD were FINALLY
on their way to al Qaeda, the Moslem Brotherhood,
Iran and his other controllers and terrorist-friends.

Because there is a push by the globalists to replace all stable governments with UNSTABLE governments: Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Syria, etc.. This is what’s been happening.. Replacing ‘order’ with ‘chaos’.. Why? I suppose they’re easier to foment linkage with U.N. global government. Staunch Tyrants like Saddam were tougher to force into the global umbrella. This is what has been happening. Difficult for most people to comprehend, nor care about. IT’S EVEN THIS WAY NOW IN THE UNITED STATES.. CHAOTIC AND WITH A WEAKENED, CONFUSED MILITARY. Just the way the globalists want it. Blue helmets ready to solve our problems. Janet Napolitano buying millions more rounds of ammo.

The DNCmedia was more concerned that GW Bush may have been fake but accurately AWOL during the Vietnam War or that he remained seated for 7 minutes after being informed of the 9/11 attacks on the WTC towers.

The enemedia is coverup up a botched “3AM phone call”. Neither Hillary nor Barack fielded it. WHERE WERE THEY? The public deserves to know. TRANSPARENCY, as Barack Hussein Obama put it.

Dempsy taking the fall? Is he isolating his boss? Sounds strange that no further communication between Dempsy, Clinton, Obama. As a Boss I would require my subordinates to keep me updated, yet, nothing between O’ & his staff?

“Posting a qualified watch” is no excuse. In my world that commander would be relieved for cause.

Situation Room.... “We don’t need no stinkin Situation Room”
Even if O’ gave a verbal order, he would still be required to put that order in writing, for that order to be valid!

I read today that the orders for the military that night were to ‘prepare for a rescue’, according to Panetta.

Total BS - parsing.

Those are the standing orders. The story here is that the President (the only one with the authority) did not sign the order to actually rescue the Americans in Benghazi. Obama was the only one with authority to order US troops to cross a recognized border on a mission - to go into Libya and save them.

It probably would have been an F-18 flyover within 45 minutes, followed by a special forces team from Sigonella within 2 hours. (I have heard that the Marines were on the flight deck ready to go.)

The problem was in the oval office. Its occupant didn’t give a $h!t about the Americans and was willing to sacrifice them on the altar of political correctness so as to not annoy his buddies.

afaik... and others here can confirm... the seal wouldnt have tried to ‘paint’ a target if he didn’t have a frequency confirmation on the unit... meaning there was something on station and ready.

question is... why did it green light him only to hold fire once he was exposed?

were they trying to end it by removing the seals from ‘the equation’?

The President cannot be absent. The Gov. may be hiking the Appalachian trail. But, the President must be somewhere.

He skips his briefings. Did he skip this crisis?

Did Rand Paul ask the question again? If not, somebody should, just so we get all of them lying on the record.

There was a picture of a hand-cuffed man in one of the pictures that night in Benghazi....as the Americans were leaving, I think. It looked suspicious to me. Of course no senators have seen the pictures.

who fired the General who was in charge of AFRICON? I believe only the President of the USA can do that. Why would he do that int he middle of the siege?

It was General Ham, I believe. He wasn’t fired and has been mentioned several times in today’s hearing.
