Posted on 09/30/2012 11:23:48 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
It is astounding that what really happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 has been so thoroughly buried by the mainstream media.
In an article from Reuters dated September 12, 2012, Alastair MacDonald reported that "U.S. troops dispatched by helicopter across the Libyan desert to rescue Ambassador Chris Stevens and other diplomats in Benghazi ran into a fierce overnight ambush that left a further two Americans dead." MacDonald quotes Capt. Fathi al-Obeidi (Libya special operations) as saying that "after his men and the Marines had found the American survivors who had evacuated the blazing consulate, the ostensibly secret location in an isolated villa came under an intense and highly accurate mortar barrage."
A detailed timeline of the attack is here.
Now, I'm confused. Helicopters? Apparently, as the consulate came under attack, the occupants contacted someone (it isn't specified who), and the Marines were dispatched. The Marines then ran into an ambush when they tried to helicopter to the consulate location from "across the Libyan desert." Meanwhile, Capt. al-Obeidi said that "it began to rain down on us," just as his security force was heading out to evacuate the 37 Americans in the ten pickup trucks and sedans they had brought to take the Americans to the airport. Capt. al-Obeidi said that he was "being bombarded by calls from all over the country by Libyan government officials who wanted me to hurry and get them out."

The Benghazi fiasco is turning out to resemble the fiasco of the Carter attempt to rescue the Iranian hostages.
As more information comes out, more screw ups are revealed.
Obama and Clinton have helped the enemies of the USA
murder the Ambassador, and then covered it up.
The US Congress is mute, moot, and greedy stupid.
BENGHAZIGATE WORSE THAN WATERGATE.
Funny how so many Al-Qaeda thugs in Libya know the score, but no one in the the U.S....except the Minority Occupation Government.
BENGHAZIGATE WORSE THAN WATERGATE.
Agree. We are dealing with Deaths here, and no commented on greatly, the
loss of intellegence from the safe house that could further comprise lives.
Combine this with Fast & Furious and the loss of Brian Terry, and the # of mexican nationals, and its astonishing that the MSM covers for this Bozo
and his team.
No, it's not astounding.
If a tree falls in the forest...............
On Fox and Friends about a week after the attack, it was reported that one of the embassy employees (my husband and I thought one of the 4 who died initially) was wounded and being cared for at Walter Reed Hospital. We both said that was the first we had heard of that. We have not heard any more about this. Has anyone here heard of an embassy employee being wounded and cared for at Walter Reed?
This is the first I have read about helicopters and Marines going to the rescue.
I still haven’t heard it on the news.
How can they be keeping such a hot story quiet without cooperation from the media?
If the media is hiding this what else are they hiding?
If Romney uses this issue effectively, he can destroy Obama before Nov.
Great post. Keep in mind that the marines had no live ammo so there wasn’t any chance to defend themselves. Who were the 37 people that got out? Were they injured? It’s hard to believe this attack went on for over 6 hours and nobody could get to them?? Even worse to think last summer Stevens warned the administration that this would happen. Don’t you think somebody should’ve been able to get there sooner if they had any intentions of saving them? Hmm.
Capt. al-Obeidi said that he was “being bombarded by calls from all over the country by Libyan government officials who wanted me to hurry and get them out.”
I find it hard to believe that Panetta, et al, weren’t real time involved in knowing what was going on.
I am beginning to think that this was Steven's visit to Ft Marcy Park, Obama style. He apparently knew too much about Obama gift of arms to Al Qaida affiliates.
Libyan attacks said to be 2-part militant assault Sep 13, 2012 AP News
ABC carried it but it's not on their website now. At least not at the original URL. MSM website tricks to keep anyone from holding them accountable or discovering any real news they might have once reported accidentally.
"The intelligence source said no protests were happening before the attackers struck at about 9:35 p.m. local time last Tuesday. The account backs up claims by a purported Libyan security guard who told McClatchy Newspapers late last week that the area was quiet before the attack."
Here is the article by Alistair McDonald referred to in the article above.
US diplomats, Marine rescue team were also attacked at safe house, Libyans say Alistair McDonald Sept. 12,2012
Here are excerpts from 2 articles talking about all the people rescued and about David Ubben who is at Walter reed. Where are all these people now? The administration had at least 30 to 60 people who were there to give first hand info. This was not a fog of war. I am convinced this was supposed to be a kidnapping intone bad.
“While squeezing Secretary Clinton’s hand and choking back tears, I told her that what worried me was that my son died possibly thinking that he had failed in the mission he was to carry out, that of protecting Ambassador Stevens and the people in the compound”
“Looking me firmly in the eye, she told me that my son did not fail. She called him a hero and that if not for him, the 30 people inside the consulate would not have made it out. He was doing his job, fighting for his life, putting others ahead of his own safety, but then that was his job, which he did well.”
Mr. Ubben, a Marylander, is married and has a stepdaughter and an infant son. He is conscious and able to communicate, according to his father, Rex Ubben.
“He’s in good spirits,” the senior Mr. Ubben said. “They’re pretty confident that he’ll be able to walk again.”
These Marines had live ammo. You are thinking of the Marines stationed at the embassy in Cairo, Egypt.
Sounds more like a deal gone bad, or some kind of negotiations went totally wrong and Obama is trying to cover his tracks.
Some also think these attacks were intended to shut down the CIA operation underway to track down manpads. If so it worked.
I hate to say it but I don’t think there were any intentions of saving Stevens. I’d give anything to have read Stevens journal. I guess this could be why CNN won’t report the story at all. The further they run from the story the more convinced I am that they know the truth. They know Obama would be impeached.
The marines in Libya did not have live ammo.
"As I was dragging the wounded Marine to safety, some Marines who were located on the roof of the villa as snipers shouted and the rest of the Marines all hit the ground."
You don't station snipers if they have no ammo.
The dems embracing Carter at their convention then then a few weeks later you have Carter II is more than just a coincidence IMO>
Yea, I know for a fact that the marines in Libya didn’t have live ammo. Maybe the marines that they say came in after the attack had ammo but not the marines stationed in Libya.
I can assure you I was never referring to the US Embassy in Egypt. I don’t know enough about that Embassy to even discuss it.
There were no Marines stationed in Benghazi, Libya or anywhere else in Libya.
...also Congress adjourned early
Jimmy Carter had the guts to try
Obama has no guts and is intent on making it fail

When asked for a source for a stated fact it is FReeper etiquette to provide the source or drop it. It has been that way since before I joined. There is no need for any private chat between us.
Then no need to continue this conversation.
I didn’t hear of this either. The Marines running into something they couldn’t handle? BS, total BS.
No kidding! There were no Marines anywhere in Libya so that pretty much finishes that discourse.
Now I see why our government lies to us. Some people obviously believe everything they read.
Muslims torched Buddest temples in Thailand.
If you have a source that say otherwise then post it. Otherwise STFU.
I wouldnt give you the satisfaction! My source isn’t a stupid article I read online! STFU, really? What are you, 5? Grow up.
