Bombshell: The Obama State Department withdrew a 16 member special forces team from Benghazi one month before the deadly attacks on 9-11. Lt. Col. Andy Wood was the leader of the 16 member special forces team whose job it was to protect US personnel in Libya. His teams mission ended in August a month before the deadly Al-Qaeda attack on 9-11. A six member mobile security team was also withdrawn around the same time. This was despite the fact that there were over a dozen attacks in the country this year. Lt. Col. Wood was subpoenaed to appear at a House committee hearing this coming week. Wood told CBS News it was unbelievable to him that the State Department withdrew security when they did because of the 13 security incidents before 9-11.
It is really beginning to look like BO and Hillary set this up. If we, the average people out here can see this, why can’t the people in charge. They can’t get away with this if it’s true. Seems pretty obvious to me though.
dominoes are toppling ... ping
ABOLUTELY. They were in Benghazi, were hustled off to an airport at HIGH speed, flown to Tripoli, then out of the country. WHO did this, what were they doing there and who flew them out and left Stevens to die? What capacity were the 2 exNavy Seals and the 4th man. All dead. Were they CIA?
So he asked for a DC-3?
Nothing like choosing a 1930 vintage transport plane for an escape vehicle!
The military version was the C-47. Paratroop and military carry-all.
Me doubts that was what he asked for.....
That map has a 2003 date on it.
I agree. I've had this one for about 8 years. Don't know where there's a current one. The FBI should know.
More and more it is looking like the 0bama regime set up Stevens for assassination!
How about this? The consulate was attacked and then the attackers, who had an extreme advantage on the consulate personnel and security, allowed the consulate personnel to escape to the annex (safe house) where they were attacked again (and most again escaped) providing cover for other operatives to ransack both facilities and recover sensitive files on CIA/spec ops missions?
That is now being recognized as an intel loss that puts operations and operatives in danger for years to come. Stevens was in the wrong place at the wrong time and died of smoke inhalation or he would have escaped along with the other 30 consulate personnel.
I doubt the attackers could have known from their positions outside where any specific individual was inside. Stevens' body wasn't brought out of the building until 2-3 hours after the attack. I have heard nothing to indicate that Stevens' death was a particularly important coup for Al-Qaeda but that intel grab is huge.
If Stevens was indeed gay, did he have some ‘dirt’ on 0bama that caused him to be silenced? First-hand experience, so to speak?
I saw that “DC-3” and am aware that it’s a dog, older than the hills. It was in print inbedded in an e-mail obtained from State that was being discussed on FOX last night. The e-mail was printed out and being waved at the camera, but a close up clearly said DC-3.
Also,this Quoted from an ABC report:
the State Department denied a request by the security team at the U.S. Embassy in Libya for continued use of a DC-3 plane earlier this year.
The aircraft had been deployed to Iraq before being moved to Libya. When commercial flights were resumed to Tripoli and Benghazi, the aircraft was moved back to other State Department business.
Although quite obsolete (since it is based on a 1930s concept), the turboprop is quite effective because it is extremely efficient, reliable, requires little ground support and can operate also from unpaved runways.”
Disgusting........ totally Disgusting. Think about this. This old DC-3 is a taildragger denied for safety, but Mooch gets her constant separate trips with the pooch, BO on even a private plane, at some times. Hussein’s Priorities, folks, priorities.
Our government is infiltrated with the Muslim Brotherhood’s anti-American ideology and interests. Both parties are, too. When I saw the wrinkly old Rinos gang up like jihadist thugs on Bachmann for asking for an investigation on infiltration, I knew we are gonners. It’s clear as a bell even from what little the public is allowed to see.
They shifted homeland security onto the jihadists’ political and social enemies and they positioned jihadists on bases in Afghanistan to demoralize and murder our soldiers. MB serves as their Islamic “experts” to guide “non-racist” government policy and “defense.” It’s absolutely insane.
But we did the same thing in the cold war. We were infiltrated with communists who worked to demoralize and defeat us. They infiltrated all our Universities and now they own them. Same crowd now using jihad as an arrow tip to bring us down.
The former Seals were working for a three letter agency and just happened to be there when the SHTF.
You are 100% correct.
In fact your comments are among the best on FR.
You are absolutely correct. I was enraged when Bachmann was attacked and Allen West agreed with her. I have sent her a chunk of $$$ for her campaign and a nice young man said they were doing pretty good with raising money.
She is correct about the MB in our government. I cannot stand most of the top GOP including Boo Hoo Boehner and no chin McConnell. Skunks, both of them. Everyone should be forced to see Nakita Krushchev pounding his shoe on the counter at the UN. Here it is: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-er3fkMnFYY
The communists said they would take us over without firing one shot! Well, guess what folks. Between Winston Churchill saying in an 1899 speech that Islam was dangerous, to this. Stand up and fight. Freedom is not free.
Let’s be positive: Ted Kennedy is gone, Lugar was defeated, sheets Byrd is gone and it goes on.
Keep the faith.
Not long after the attack, I read an article, probably here or at a link from an article here, written by a supposedly good friend of Stevens - a woman born in Iran, an Iranian.
It stunk like “made up backstory”. She claimed he visited her often, implied or stated that they were practically gf/bf, that he brought some kind of red wine and beer every time they got together, that he was afraid of attacks and was taking martial arts classes.
The rumor has been that he had converted to Salafist Islam (also from another article on FR), it was stated on a Libyan TV newscast. So the stuff about wine and beer may have been to forestall any rumors of his conversion to Islam, and the “girl friend” to forestall the rumors of his homosexuality.
I’m convinced it was a hit, facilitated by the adminstration, to aid Al Qaida and further weaken the US.
Thanks for the ping.....passing it on.
I love your comments, too.
“Was Obama really that much afraid that our BAD-ASS SPECIAL FORCES might shoot some poor, dumb muslim just because he was dragging the body of our ambassador through the streets?”
