Another Unanswered Question about Benghazi
Weekly Standard ^ | 11:56 AM, Nov 20, 2012 | JEFFREY H. ANDERSON

Posted on 11/20/2012 2:44:44 PM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach

At Forbes.com, Larry Bell offers a nice summary of the unanswered questions surrounding the Benghazi-Patreaus controversy. He asks (and addresses) the following: “Did the White House blackmail General Petraeus to support a cover story?” “When did the President really learn about the Petraeus affair?” “Why weren’t repeated precautionary consulate security requests heeded?” “If the President ordered that personnel be secured, why weren’t they?” “Are even larger cover-ups being hidden from Congress?”

One person and one only runs Obama. Soros has lots of influence but there is no need to look further than Jarrett. That evil bi-ch is a waste of skin.

I would like to know the answers to a few questions regarding: Where are those 20-40 people it is said that our brave SEALS gave their lives for now? Who were they? How did they escape? What was their function at/in these buildings? Were any wounded? Has J. Griffin, K. Herridge or B. Baer looked into this aspect of this?

The 9/11 frightened people because they thought it could happen to them. Too many Americans don’t think beyond their front door. You want to know why this administration is trashing the military? Because American Soldiers are being killed. Now they can tell you that they deserved to die...it’s not Obama’s fault. The Obama god can never be wrong.

Spitting into the wind. I don’t know what’s worse, getting no answers at all or being lied to. Guess in the end, it all adds up to the same thing.

Ping.

I have many questions, and here are some...

First, there seems to be a disconnect between the “consulate” or mission and the annex. If the annex was really a mile up the street, and hidden, why were Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty killed there if they were trying to rescue Ambassador Stevens (and the 30 other people) at the mission? What moved the battle up the street? Were Woods and Doherty protecting the prisoners who were apparently kept there and perhaps freed by the militants? What is the timeline for the movement of the battle? And why the heck was the Turkish representative there talking to Stevens when both our countries have real embassies elsewhere?

I had feared that the media would drop the case. But I am beginning to realize that this will make a heck of a movie, so the media has to find the facts first before they can make the movie. Or is that too far-fetched an idea?

Is she black? I keep hearing that she was born in Iran, not that a black person couldn’t be born in Iran but then what were her parents doing there? Does anyone know anything about her parents background? No doubt she is a second or third generation communist.

There are holes all over this story. Why did Panetta first say it was too risky to send troops and then change his story later to the troops were too far away. What happened to the story of the ship carrying arms to the Syrian rebels Fox reported, but now has mysteriously gone quiet? Why do most Republicans avoid the subject of the timeline when Petraeus started his affair? Why is the media strangely incurious about these women? I haven't heard of them appearing on any of the usual MSM shows. What is their political bent? Republicans are probably in on whatever was really going on, because this stinks from end to end, but no rocks are being flipped to reveal anything new. The live video of the attack should probably been enough to hang this whole administration. They'll give him pass after they've made enough noise. Like 9/11, somebody will end up dying later for this whitewash now.

Jarrett was born in Shiraz, Iran to American parents James E. Bowman and Barbara Taylor Bowman. As a child growing up she spoke Persian and French. She spent the first five years of her life in Iran before her family moved to London. Following a year in London, the family moved to Chicago’s elite neighborhood, Hyde Park.

In 1983 she married Dr. William Robert Jarrett, son of famed Chicago Sun-Times reporter Vernon Jarrett. They were divorced in 1988 and William Jarrett died in 1993.

The Jarretts and the Bowmans were family friends.

Vernon Jarrett was a one time political associate of Communist Party USA activist and Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis.

Valerie Jarrett is the great niece of prominent Democratic Party leftist Vernon Jordan.

Yes; I’m tired of Petraeus and his floozies. Tired of talking about talking points, who changed the verbiage, the video, etc. I want to know why the people in the Situation Room, watching the massacre for 7 hours, said “No” in response to cries for help. It’s murder.

And what you said... where are these people who were rescued by SEALs?

It is murder to you and I and other Americans but to this commie/muslim bunch, (hussein, Clinton, Jarret, Axelrod, Panetta, Rice, Carney et al), it is just ‘necessary asset expenditures’ or simply ‘human collateral damage’. They ‘think’ on/of life on a completely different level. Even FOX’s reporters seem to be staying away from some aspects of this story. I will bet they were told to stay away from some areas by the PTB just like the entire elligibility thing of hussein’s was to be off limits.....if they knew what was good for ‘em.

I want the answers to these questions:

Who gave the order to the military to “stand down” and NOT launch the plans to rescue the Ambassador and our other three brave men?

When did they give the order?

Why?

So many of these “black” hate whitey types look like octaroons.

(I think that is 1/8 Negro). Look at Jeremiah Wright, 0moslem, Jarret, Holder - in previous generations they’d be called high yaller.

Lots of great questions BUMP! Answers NOT forthcoming. Even the questions posed HERE are not being asked.

“—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Alter it.

Did Obama issue a CBA?
If not, why not?
Was Obama watching the attack in the situation room?
If not, why not? If so, did he know that Ambassador was missing when he went to bed?

From The DiploMad 2.0:

“As Ralph Peters speculates at the NYPost, Ansar Al-Sharia sent their B-Team to get Stevens at the consulate that wasn’t a consulate, and they sent their A-Team to the Annex when they figured out where it was.”
