Skip to comments.Just Who DID answer the 3:00AM Call?
Posted on 10/13/2012 6:49:46 PM PDT by Eric
"Fox military analyst Col. David Hunt checked in with us again after the revelation that there were multiple listening posts which heard the cries for help from the US Embassy in Libya and none of them did anything. The State Department says they still do not know what really happened in Libya."

The 09/11/12 terrorist attack [on U.S. sovereign ground], assassination and murders began at 9:30 PM Libyan time = 3:30 AM Eastern U.S. time. Apparently, when that "3 AM Phone Call" came-in ... President 0bama turned-over and went back to sleep as did Sec. of State Clinton.
And The Col. was pissed! He said how he has been in a DOD or WH map room when one of those calls came in and that EVERYBODY knew what was going on and who was being informed and he said the President is located and told immediately!
He also said that there’s no way they can hide any of this because there were too many people (100s) involved and “logged”. A FOI request will prove who knew and when (it’s all been logged).
Obama was sure Big Bird would take the call....
Probably catching up on espn recordings.
He was likely in a sound sleep from too much partying.
I honestly think he’s been looking a little ragged for awhile now. I suspect he turns to drink, or worse, when he’s stressed. It’s not like he doesn’t have a record of doing that.
They will do everything they can to drag this out past the election.
I think this part is probably the most appalling....they sat there for hours and watched and listened, did NOTHING to help these poor souls, than told stone cold faced lies without flinching.
We also know that the requests for more security would have been included in daily security briefs that Obama ignored while campaigning and playing golf and Biden ignored out of incompetence.
Does any of the media beside FOX have any SHAME?
No need to answer that question.
What the hell Barack, the one night you say you will answer
the phone instead of me, and you just hung up on them?
Has actions from the beginning revealed that he serves the father-of-lies.
I really appreciate these updates from the Col.
This would make a good web ad.
Are they conversing in Farsi?
It was reported the next day that Obama was informed and went to bed.
An effort to play it down, either to obama himself, or to us, one or the other.
You know the drill, “nothing to see here, folks, move along”, except I want to know WHO the phantom intellegence community was, according to Hillary that was passed on to Obama and Rice, that called this up as a video protest?
About the timeframe:
“Libya is 6 hours ahead of EST. The attack began about 9:30 PM Libyan time which would have only been 3:30 PM EST. Obama would have been golfing about that time - not in bed.”
post 26...Randita pointed out the same thing. I tried to draw attention to her post in post 63, same thread.
I havent confirmed the time, but this fact, if true, has gotten lost in the web of lies.
AND, its not a minor point because Obama should have been sitting in the situation room. If not, one of his surrogates was-and the WH situation room, and other agencies, was obligated to give him frequent updates.
That would be hours before Obama was reported to have gone to bed at 11pm.
I would like to see a replay of the 3AM commercial from the last election, with the clock at 3AM, and Obama in bed wth his back to the clock & phone with him snoring.
Eric, according to the cell phone world clock I’m looking at (it’s 10:06 pm 10/13/2012 in Pennsylvania) the time in Jerusalem (close enough to Libya) is 4:06 am 10/14/2012 making any event that happens in that part of the world at 9:30 pm happen in Washington D.C at 3:30 pm.
Unless I’m missing something BO’s eyes were wide open.
Either his MB buddies tried to tell him who was really in charge or they just acted like the bloodthirsty dogs they are and could not stop themselves, who knows...plans be damned.
That is a non-working outlet, or the ringer on the phone is dead.
Yet nearly 50% of the electorate in Ohio still believes in these lying fools. It would seem to me that Mr Obama, Mr Biden, Ms Clinton, Ms Rice are in some very hot legal trouble regardless of how this election turns out!
Obama said in a radio interview today that he's "trying to keep his day job." I guess that means he takes no calls after he's off the clock.
1st - I thought the attack began at 8:30pm Banghazi time. 2nd - Your time calculation is going the wrong way. Benghazi is 6 hrs ahead of eastern time. (it is right now, 4:24AM Sun. in Tripoli and 10:24 PM Sat in D.C.)
6 hour time difference between DC and Tripoli
That means it was the middle of the afternoon in D.C. when it started
When the call came at 3AM, Hillary thought it was a wrong number and hung up.
Obama doesn’t get up until 8AM.
Lessay it’s Dec. 7th’ 1942 8 am Honolulu and HD ViDEO existed. Suppose that HUNDREDS in DC had been able to watch a 6 hour attack unfold and that the ENTIRE US Military response fell onto the shoulders of just FOUR guys with rifles and grenades.
Suppose further it could be demonstrated that FDR and the Secty of State had been TOLD and they simply WENT TO SLEEP:
What would the US media have done in 1942...?
Let’s all get on the same page regarding the time frame. Keep in mind that the times reported here are Libyan time, which is 6 hours AHEAD of EST.
New details of Sept. 11 consulate attack in Libya
By Bradley Klapper, The Associated Press
October 9, 2012
Updated: 8:10 p.m.
WASHINGTON (AP) Senior State Department officials provided a more detailed picture Tuesday of the consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. A look at how they say the attack took place:
Sept. 10-11, 2012
Stevens arrives in Benghazi and holds meetings on and off the consulate grounds on Sept. 10. He spends the night, and for the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. holds meetings only inside the compound. It is an enclosed area about 300 yards long by 100 yards wide, with a 9-foot outer wall topped by barbed wire and augmented by barriers, steel drop bars and other security upgrades. There are four buildings in the compound. Five diplomatic security officers are present, along with four members of a local militia deployed by Libyas government to provide added security.
Around 8:30 p.m.
Stevens finishes his final meeting of the day and escorts a Turkish diplomat outside the main entrance of the consulate. The situation is calm. There are no protests.
Around 9:40 p.m.
Agents hear loud noises, gunfire and explosions near the front gate. A barracks at the entrance housing the local militiamen is burnt down. Agents viewing cameras see large group of armed men flowing into the compound. Alarm is sounded. Telephone calls are made to the embassy in Tripoli, officials in Washington, the Libyan authorities and a U.S. quick reaction force located at a second compound a little over a mile away.
It's basically a similar situation. The Rangers asked for armored vehicles for protection, but Les Aspin and his deputies rejected the request. And again, there was a pattern of violence and hostile incidents in both cities prior to the major attacks in Mogadishu and Benghazi.
It was Obama’s 3 AM call in the middle of the afternoon - and he still couldn’t be bothered.
Thanks. Okay, 9:40pm Libyan time. So that means it was 3:40pm in D.C. If it went on for approximately 6 hrs, then would make it about 3:30AM Benghazi time, which is 9:30PM D.C. time.
So where the hell was Obama? and Clinton? Nobody from the press has bothered to ask that question, but they were all so concerned about George Bush sitting in a classroom with grammar school kids on 9/11/01.
official first hand account.
first time I have read. I always assumed Obamination was lying from the beginning. These facts make it more outrageous.
Yes the attack began at 3:30 PM Washington DC time.
“So where the hell was Obama? and Clinton? “
Don’t know. It was a Tuesday - Just as it was a Tues on Sept 11th, 2001.
They still won’t say the date it happened - Sept 11th, 2012.
Can you imagine what the newspaper headlines would have been the next morning if this was a Republican president?
“Suppose further it could be demonstrated that FDR and the Secty of State had been TOLD and they simply WENT TO SLEEP.”
Er, that very scenario has been voiced . . .
from a person who served in the State Department
” What was the facility in Benghazi? What made it so important even in the face of mounting threats? If it was important enough to operate, why wasn’t it important enough to protect? Did the Ambassador ever threaten to close it down if it weren’t protected? The real issue, however, is that the site could not be protected from the sort of attack we saw on 9/11 short of 30 or 40 well armed US troops. Why was it so important to risk so many lives?
another interesting tidbit:
“It seems that the facility in Benghazi was one of those “cheaters.” It is not clear what that facility was, and how it was classified. It is not listed as a consulate. Who had primary responsibility for that facility? Was it, as some press reports have indicated, primarily a CIA listening post? Was it something else? As I have noted before,
The facility in Benghazi was not a regular consulate despite what the press has been saying. It is not clear what exactly that facility was—it does not appear on the Embassy Tripoli website or in the State Department’s list of consulates—but appears to have been operated on the bureaucratic sly to enable it to avoid expensive and time-consuming security requirements. The Near East (NEA) head, the Diplomatic Security (DS) head, the Undersecretary for Management (M), the Deputy Secretary (D), and the Secretary of State (S), and, of course, the CIA Director, and the head of the NSC, knew this, or should have, and should be fired—if they did not, they also should all be fired. Any investigation must focus on what functions the facility performed, and what risk assessment had been made; in other words, what were the pros and cons of running this place? Was it worth the risk of operating it under the conditions it did? “
I heard someone today say it was not actually consulate, and called it a mission.
Good information on what happened.
This is interesting. Someone did make a decision to send reinforcements from the Tripoli Embassy. Wonder who?
From the report:
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 to the annex, I should say. And I should have mentioned that the quick reaction the quick reaction security team that was at the compound has also, in addition to my five agents, has also returned to the annex safely. The reinforcements from Tripoli are at the compound at the annex. They take up their positions. And somewhere around 5:45 in the morning sorry, somewhere around 4 o’clock in the morning I have my timeline wrong somewhere around 4 o’clock in the morning the annex takes mortar fire. It is precise and some of the mortar fire lands on the roof of the annex. It immediately killed two security personnel that are there, severely wounds one of the agents thats come from the compound.
At that point, a decision is made at the annex that they are going to have to evacuate the whole enterprise. And the next hours are spent, one, securing the annex, and then two, moving in a significant and large convoy of vehicles everybody to the airport, where they are evacuated on two flights.”
It is important we do and much thanks for bringing the subject up in the first place.
This is the only guy saying the right things....Congressman Trey Gowdy...
How long does it take for our military, whether it’s Air Force, Navy, etc. to send cover to this facility? It’s in the middle east, for heavens sake, we have military everywhere. Why should it take over 6 hours from start to finish and we have no military intervention? I am shocked by this inadequate military support and by the lack of attention given to this by the State Dept. and the Obama Administration. It would seem this is dereliction of duty by all involved.
It seems odd to me that some 100+ armed men, with
RPGs and weapons could take the “embassy” then only
hold it for an hour until whatever security at the
safe house could retake it.
It was either a hit and run or else there were more
armed security people at the safe house than we have
I know seal folks are bad news but would 3 or 4 really
take on 100+?
Sounds to me more like the intruders were looking for
something special, codeing machines who knows what else?
Something that they KNEW was there and exactly WHERE
Whole thing is hinky and is crying out for and needs
a congressional investigation!!!
Thanks for the time zone confirmation. It makes the lies and the supporting obfuscation by the press that much more refutable.
