“(the other ex-SEAL arrived from Tripoli later)”

Thank you. I had assumed the two ex-SEALS had been together. So the ex-SEAL coming from Tripoli makes it sound like a general alarm went off and was broadcast far and wide very early in the fighting, with only a few brave men heading to the battle.

Too bad the gunship commander also didn’t have the “F&*% it” attitude and help the guys on the ground.

Yep, Hitlery too. She’s a staunch Marxist. Alinsky disciple since Wellsley. I have no use for anyone in his entire regime, and that includes Patreaus.

” Alinsky disciple since Wellsley.”

IIRC, Hillary’s senior thesis.

“sound like a general alarm went off and was broadcast far and wide very early in the fighting, “

That DID happen, instantly, from 9:40pm [Libya time, 3:40ESTpm Washington time]. Instantly, about 12 command centers, including the WH Situation Room, were alerted that Benghazi Consulate was under fire by a coordinated, preplanned Al -Qaeda-affiliated militia.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHARLENE LAMB’s [State Dept] prepared statement at the Issa Hearing:

That brings me to the events of September 11 itself.

At approximately 9:40 pm local time, dozens of attackers launched a full-scale assault. They forced their way through the pedestrian gate, used diesel fuel to set fire to the Libyan 17th February Brigade members’ barracks, and then proceeded towards the main building.

A Diplomatic Security agent working in the Tactical Operations Center immediately activated the Imminent Danger Notification System. He also alerted the quick reaction security team stationed nearby, the Libyan 17th February Brigade, the Embassy in Tripoli, and the Diplomatic Security Command Center in Washington.

I will be watching Brett Brair tonight for sure. Beckle on now acting all indignant that anyone would accuse the president of ‘wanting Americans to die’. (eye roll). Looks like the indignant game is going to be the card they play in response. Remember how Obama tried to bait Romney in debate with the same tactic? Well I got news for them....the president of the United States is not immune from having to answer for this travesty. His haughty game may work with his slavish media, but it won’t work with the American people!

Beckel is too hard to watch. Obama would sacrifice NUMEROUS
Americans, and foreigners if he thought it was in his political interest.
Fast & Furious proves this. Benghazi proves this.

“Asked whether the administration’s shifting explanation for the September 11 strike reflected the intelligence he was receiving, Obama replied: “What’s true is that the intelligence was coming in and evolving as more information came up.”

Yeeeeeeeeeah !

“Evolving Intel “......

Dats de ticket !!

Just got out of the hospital today...am still out of it a bit. (minor surgery with a reaction to anesthetic.) Can someone give me a synopsis of what’s happened the last two or three days? Fell asleep (again) just as Brett’s show started.

Gosh, ((((M)))), I didn’t know! Faithful prayers for you to get well NOW!

I’ll leave the synopsis to a faster and better typist!

In short, the Marxist’s lies about Benghazi are falling apart.

It’s alarming watching the clear-eyed liars in this administration. Really alarming.

I wonder how Beckel stands it...does he ever have a quiet moment when he just wonders what in the world is REALLY the truth about this administration? Denial is powerful and yet I always sense he’s struggling. Not with his liberal beliefs- but with what his party has become...and particularly, what this administration has done to it..

Thanks for posting this: “Hence Jefferson’s action despite the lack of a formal declaration against the Barbary pirates. Rather appropriate citation in this case, don’t you think?”

No president or anyone knew more about our founding documents than President Jefferson.

So, when the Barbary Pirates refused to stop their acts of high sea piracy, he sent our Navy and marines in to kill and kick butt, Also to send a clear warning to other nations not to even consider aiding or sheltering pirates and future enemies of America.

Can actions as a CIA operative and no longer active military be eligible for the Metal of Honor?

The CIA has its Wall of Honor for agents. There is a star for each agent, who died protecting America.

Now, there is a Book of Honor to explain some of the stars.

https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/additional-publications/cia-memorial-wall-publication/the-book-of-honor.html

“The Book of Honor—on display in front of the Memorial Wall at all times—contains the names of employees who died while serving their country. Each is next to a 23-carat gold leaf star. For reasons of security—to protect intelligence sources and methods—the names of some of those on the Wall must remain secret, even in death. Each of these officers is remembered in the book by a gold star alone.”

Too bad as contractors they aren’t eligible for the Medal of Honor.

The full and proper title of said award is "The Congressional Medal of Honor", is it not? This indicates that Congress can award such an honor under unusual circumstances (such as seems to apply here) to whoever it sees fit to, 'contractor' status or not. The real question would be, does Congress have the will to do so...

‘Medal of Honor’ is military. ‘Congressional MoH’ is not an official name for it.

Congressional Gold Medal and Presidential Medal of Freedom are highest civilian honors.

"Obama: ----“Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way;”

IF that was true, SOMEBODY countermanded the President's direct order.....and Obama would have been LIVID and punted the jerk's butt all the way across the Atlantic.....but he didn't do anything at all!

How is this one ?

Jay the whitehouse guy has to adjust what happened in Bengahzi like how inflation is adjusted with the " inflation index " .... the corruption index , since it was " that was a long time ago " .

They needed to clip the ambassador for some reason.<<

That's my thought too...either for knowing too much about the gunrunning or to be kidnapped to be exchanged for the blind sheik......It was planned for sure....Security had been purposely thinned out....and to send the Ambassador to an unsecured “outpost” on 9/11 would be insane.......You have to be more then inept to have a setup that good....It's murder or at the very least accessory to murder
