Rush military caller says beyond shadow of doubt Obama knew about Benghazi attack and ordered no response
quote: This is an amazing phone call from a retired Lt. Col. and Special Operations Planner for 15 years who knows the inside baseball of what goes on in the White House. He told Rush that protocol dictates that as soon as the situation room got the email about the Benghazi attack, someone marched up to the president and informed him of the attack. He says its a bald faced lie if they say otherwise.
He also says that it was the president who gave the order at his 5pm meeting that day to not respond to the Libya attack in progress.

Reason was: Iran/Jimmy Carter decision. Go in and fail and it's political suicide. So... let them die and 'fog of war' confusion blame the video your way out of it.
Traitor Obama was focused on the blind Sheik
who he wanted to transfer back
to al Qaeda (his true friends).
That would explain the Las Vegas trip on September 12.
The decision had been made to let them die. So what else could be done? Go to Vegas!
Obama’s a coward and a traitor. He puts politics ahead of lives.
I totally agree with the caller. Obama knew what was going on and he did in fact lie about what he knew and when he knew it. The Lt Col is right on, and this needs to get out.
the assumption that Obama actualy attended these briefs is just that, an assumption.
This man probably created such a cocoon around himself that information like this couldn’t penetrate. He is known as “no drama” and the last thing he needs to hear is some old white gay guy in Libya might be in trouble. I seriously think that none of the information ever made it to him either because his handlers like Valerie and Axlerod would not allow it, or the staff has learned to work around him and no one else could initiate the military action.
Donald Rumsfeld basically said the same thing yesterday.
The Lt. Col. states that these operations are usually a 50/50 proposition. High risk. Not clear how many enemies are on the ground or how well armed.
The two CIA operatives nearby were told THREE TIMES to stand down. They went anyway. Whole ordeal was 7 hours and troops could have been there 4-5 hours tops - but none were ever sent.
White House situation had the info and would have gone straight to POTUS for a decision. Decision was made NOT to intervene and risk failure.
Don’t need any other conspiracies (kidnapping, gun running etc.) to explain it. This is bad enough and seems like a decision a politician would make.
FOUR MEN LEFT BEHIND.
I’m sure it went like this:
Panetta: “Mr. President?”
Valerie Jarrett: “The President feels direct action in Libya wouldn’t be prudent and regrets that he has to deny your request.”
It was chilling, passionate, professional testimony. I was impressed with the wealth of knowledge as I always am with our military. You got the sense it could have all been avoided and our guys were “chomping at the bit” to get it done.
I for one, am more infuriated than I was when the story broke. Obama’s non-response was political. I hope the Frankenstorm dies down so this story can get some attention.
Thanks for posting this.
Thanks for posting this. Incredible. I still believe there is much more to this than Obama just wanting to avoid the Jimmy Carter mistake. There are too many other dots that need connecting.
I heard it and he was correct.
That call was really good.
for the reporter who wants to win the big gold prize you wear on a chain around your neck , the most unreported part of this story is the day right after the attack saw her first rays of sunlight.
Those rooms were full of contact info...emails...sat phone numbers....logistics....routes...both bank and land travel
anotherwords KFC’s secret recipe for 11 herbs and spices
all on the floor...right there -——————> X
and what did we do ?
Obama kept America outta those rooms and got his “folk” to get it cleaned up
and oh..... oops.......CNN got the diary
and for that...Obama got Candy
yippie kye yo kei ye baby.............
Except it wasn’t the emails...it was another separate alert that is made instantly on Top Secret channels when an Ambassador is in peril. Protocol dictates it is immediately relayed to TOTUS.
Egads! The Fly! How did you escape the Situation Room without being swatted? But thanks for the intel.
Incredible call. What I heard, and correct me if I’m wrong, that absent a direct no-go order from POTUS, they would have rescued these guys given their standing orders. Is he concluding that no one but Obama would have cancelled a rescue mission? If Obama did refuse to order any rescue, wouldn’t someone in his administration by now be willing to give up his career to get the truth out? There are a lot of players who would have been witness to this travesty -— no one among them is brave enough?
The guy sounded like he knew what he was talking about.
AND THAT, my FRiends, is the reason for all the lying by Obama and crew.
Our top leaders were supplying weapons to a 'new' enemy who was the enemy of the 'old' enemy who used to be our friend.
It's a game that governments play, all the time, but Obama and crew are used to people letting them win because they are 'democrat' or 'black'.
Doesn't work over in the Middle East. Then, the lead player on the Obama team is working to install Sharia Law in the US and is using Obama, Hillary, and Holder as pawns. Obama is about to be sacrificed.
Valerie will have to 'takeover' (just temporarily, to ensure the safety of the nation,etc) ....probably Dec. 21, which will be the official start of the Socialist Caliphate of the Western Hemisphere.
I knew when I listened to it in real time this was bomb shell material.
I think the people below the high echelons must be furious and are looking for ways to clue in the American people. I doubt this guy called in on the regular caller line.
Good for Rush.
Also interesting what he said about the units that are ready to go at a moment’s notice. That stinking SOB McCain is running around today spreading the lie that the military wasn’t on alert so wasn’t available to respond.
