I hear what you are saying, but have you considered that people’s actual lives and the lives of their families and children are also at stake here?
The traitors are ‘playing’ for keeps. They want our blood and treasure.
They don’t seem to be. I expected it to be one of th top stories on abc or cbs but they covered several other stories before I turned them off. I didn’t even bother with nbc.
Why were the locals who grabbed the AMBASSADOR’s phone able to dial it until they reached somebody?
At my mildly security conscious company, I’m REQUIRED to use a password on my mobile device. Aren’t AMBASSADORs supposed to have some operational security in place?
Jeez. What amateurs.
“People who are and have stepped forward are at risk of their lives.”
Like the first four.
HE took a job under OBAMA......ALL I NEED TO KNOW THAT HE":S A SKANK!!
“The CIA is merely directing people to the guy who was making the decisions.”
Then come out and say it, in plain english EXACTLY what happened. A pissed off nation isn’t slightly interested in his BS political dance that “implies” this, and “hints” at that. He knows the whole story but is giving us half truths. A half truth is a full lie.
Petraeus,, remember your oath and stop being a coward. Your career, or even your freedom for speaking of secrets, is still a FAR lower price than the one those SEALS paid.
That’s throwing the president under the bus???? Pulleeze. It’s not CIA, it’s CYA. Say good night, David.
It’s historical (and almost hysterical) that this “October Surprise” was sprung by the incumbent Democrat’s own incompetence. Of course the mainstream presstitutes will ignore or downplay it.
“our government is murderous and despotic, and will murder a citizen for telling the truth to the people.”
By the way, I think this is exactly what our government believes it can do. With impunity.
The issue now is that the treason involves those at the highest levels of government, too. They can’t hide any longer, either. And their security isn’t ironclad. Witness Reid’s today.
Petraeus’s wife also works in the obama admin. He is totally compromised.
The media are in silent covering for their messiah mode.
We have these dead Americans, we have had a cover up, we have had a father come out and tell us how obama acted and what Clinton said, we have had requests for help and we know some watched the attack .
NOW WHO THE HELL GAVE THE ORDER TO STAND DOWN?
WHERE WAS OBAMA DURING ALL OF THIS?
WHY DID THEY LIE?
WAS OBAMA THERE AND DID HE GIVE THE ORDER TO NOT HELP?
DID OBAMA NOT KNOW?
WHY WAS HE NOT TOLD IF SO?
DID HE SIT THERE AND WATCH THIS?
WHY DID HE GO TO VEGAS KNOWING AN ATTACK AND DEATHS HAVE JUST OCCURED?
HELL i HAVE MANY MORE QUESTIONS AS DOES MANY IN America AND this media is ignoring all of this to help get oabma re=elected
Dripping faster by the hour.
“You are assuming that Patraeus was one of the people called in when this whole cluster f**k unfolded”
Bullcrap. That Hillary testimony was mere theater. Petraeus is an establishment company boy. And yes, the director of the CIA absolutely knew, in real time. And he also knows exactly who denied rescue and why and probably exactly what they said.
He is part of it. Window dressing jobs do not include director of the CIA.
Ann, Patreaus may not be pristine in this. He has served our nation well though, and I’ll be darned if I’m going to attack him rather than the president.
What has Obama done for this nation?
Okay, dislike Patreaus for not blowing Obama’s cover on the video. It’s my take that the director of the CIA needs to maintain the perception that our clandestine agencies stand behind the president. It’s a national security necessity.
Once that connection is broken, as when the CIA is being blamed for things, it needs to keep continuity of our intel services. Then it merely explains who made the final decision here.
I really don’t get why you seem to be furious with Patreaus. I wouldn’t waste my breath on that guy.
We’ve got a president that needs to be impeached. Why divert attention.
just said the same, the media have ignored all of this and yet we have a cover up worse than watergate or even Clinton and his affairs.
This is big news, a parents coming out and saying what he siad is big news, etc and yet MSNBC wil have a group on about homosexual rights and how they will say they are a normal family
CNN will have who is dating who in Holywood.
The other outlets will have about how the economy is getting better and still the media will ignore all of this.
Lots of people KNOW...That’s what I don’t get...so many know, yet, why aren’t they out blowing the whistle??
Barack 0bama: "I will personally go to meet with the Japanese Emperor to apologize for the Mr. Moto movie."
Franklin Roosevelt: "Yesterday, December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy ..."
In all fairness, Jennifer Griffin of FOX appears to have found some on-the-ground witnesses in Benghazi with firsthand knowledge.
A news organization needs to verify info before running with it. There’s probably a scramble right now to do just that, because this is a huge story. Were I a news director (and I DO have experience in the industry), I would insist on verification before airing the story, and verifying sources may take time.
No news organization wants to name a competitor that scooped them as their source.
Kudos to FOX.
Are you SERIOUS???? Patreus wife works for Obama too??? as WHAT??? What is her name?? Proba,ab,y someting other than Patreus.
New sign needed:
Obama Lied - Tyrone Died
Wow. Folks, get a grip.
If Patraeus says he didn’t make the call, then who did?
What more does he need to say?
We do not want a situation where the director of the CIA goes rogue on the president. He’s limiting his input in the interest of maintaining that distance.
Congress is where this belongs. If he’s called, he can answer their questions in a formal setting. That’s how I’d rather see it play out.
This sorry excuse for a "Republican" and a "General" and a "leader" and a "role-model" is finally having his skewed color blindness catch up with him. What's left of his reputation now awaits the Obama-induced mercy bullet to put him out of his misery.
1. Vallerie Jarrett 2. Axelrod 3. BHO
Those guys did it —they thought they were risking a Blackhawk Down incident b4 a Presidential election, and so they forbade anyone to help.
” 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.”
Obama had to know, and had to have rendered a decision.
I don’t know who else was in the loop, but this much is clear. Thanks for the info.
Pateaus COULD have stepped down.....NOT come out and blame a VIDEO like he did!! he is GUTLESS and has lost his soul if he had it. Working for Obama was a HUGE REDLIGHT!!
WHERE THE F@@@ IS THE MEDIA ?
Biggest cover up in recent history, people died, they are lying, the media is ignoring this
I get pissed off with a lot what this admin does like letting homosexuals and cross dressers to serve openly but this is the most I have been outraged and the media covers all of this up,
The GOP needs to call a press conference and emand on live camera right now that this admin tell the truth and oabma needs to get back to DC and start to sort this crap out.
“Why would someone who Hillary publicly called BeTrayus be in this administration in any capacity.”
For the same reason Hillary is. It’s what that insoder DC set does. The acrimony between this is theater for our consumption. Hillary and Obama said far worse things about each other, but there they are, in the same administration. They distrust and hate us far more than they do ANY political opponent of the moment.
Their disputes are about as real as a Hollywood marriage.
LOL...Wilfred Brimley at his best!
I love that movie. :)
I have asked questions on this thread but the biggest one which this media will not even cover on this issue let alone ask is where was obama, did he watch this, or did he not know and if he did not know then who gave the order to not disturb him and if hee did know where was he, did he give the order to stand down and why?
The media have ignored this totally and on purpose and we have to get this message out now on FB and other sites, call our local papers, channels, demand they tell this issue.
Amen. This is pure and simple TREASON.
“but have you considered that peoples actual lives and the lives of their families and children are also at stake here?”
Rumor has it that the SEALS also had lives and families. These actual people you speak of, who are so fearful. They took an oath, and it wasn’t a version of the “personal loyalty to the Fuhrer oath”, it was to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign AND DOMESTIC.
If they are unwilling to stand up if our government is truly an internally murderous enterprise, they should resign and go work at the local convenience store. It’s pure cowardice, no excuses.
Of all these last 4 years this cover up and Lbya have got my blood boiling, the media has ignored the worst incident and cover up and lies in modern history and instead one would think nothing ever happened.
I want to know where was obama during this , did he watch it, if he was not told then who said do not disturb and if he was told then he lied and why did he refuse to send help?
This is coming out drip by drip and the timing is great. The cover provided by the Leftist media has lulled zero into a false sense of security, so much so that 0bama and his henchmen have acted recklessly. Because of a compliant media, 0bama thought he had the option of using a false cover story because it might have afforded him a somewhat better political position.
I would not be surprised at all to discover that Valerie Jarrett was the only one of authority in the Situation Room and made these decisions.
Obama was AWOL, like always.
They play for the other team.
Let Colin lick the zero’s boots. Who cares? Not me. He’s nothing to me.
If they are unwilling to stand up if our government is truly an internally murderous enterprise, they should resign and go work at the local convenience store. Its pure cowardice, no excuses.
If the US President refused to help, it was probably a rerun of the attack on the USS Liberty in 1967. In other words if Americans die we will cover it up if the perps are “friends”.
In 2012 it was an attack against the USA, and in 1967 against the USA and USN too that corrupt bribed politicians used to justify their $$$$, and it was by Israel. In 2012 we don’t know who benefited, except we do know in 2012 it was others and political interests and it was not for the USA Ambassador.
I care only about the USA and don’t give one flying crap about supporters of any country except the USA and USN.
My bro reminded me that Romney got the intel briefs since he became nominee.
He knows a bit, eh?
This is like watching the dark tower topple and all the orcs and goblins and trolls start to scatter.
I like the way God thinks about times like this. If you say nothing, you are an accomplice.
