WASHINGTON — Obama administration officials defended their response to the September attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, amid new claims that the White House failed to send help quickly enough as militants overran the mission. The U.S. ambassador and three other Americans died in the hourslong battle

It's called "beat the clock"... lie, delay, obfuscate, deflect until the election.

Typical piss-stream media report!!

From Fox:

"Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back was denied by the CIA -- the CIA operators were twice told to "stand down" rather than help the ambassador's team."

This article is infuriating to read. It is clearly an attempt to make it appear that they’re covering the new claims when in reality they glossed over everything. Like the fact that the position of the enemy firing on the CIA annex was painted by a laser so that air support could hit them. There were 2 drones, and it’s been reported that one of them was armed. If so, then this isn’t about Libyan airspace being at issue or help not being available - it is an issue of the help that was already there being specifically told it COULD NOT provide support. A drone was given the exact place to hit and was specifically told not to do so - instead allowing that target to hit and kill the former SEALs.

This is inexcusable, and for this article to ignore the substance of what was revealed yesterday stinks to high heaven.

Then release the order Obama signed to save the lives of Americans.
Of course, there will be no order release because there was no order to protect our own.

I think they didn’t order attacks on the enemy and let our people die because they were working with the attackers. If they bombed the attackers surely the group would have let the world know what was going on. Blackmail, really.

“Correction: October 17, 2012

The headline with an earlier version of this article misidentified the source of the identification of Ahmed Abu Khattala as a commander in the attack that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. Libya has named Mr. Abu Khattala, not the United States.”
https://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/18/world/africa/libya-singles-out-islamist-as-a-commander-in-benghazi-consulate-attack.html

There is no way to deny this man was the ringleader of the attack and this man was also in control of the hospital that the ‘good Libyans’ took our ambassador to. Our government is covering their dirty arse.

1. The military will do what is ordered. They did not help them as they were not ordered to attack.

2. The CIA denies that they stopped any military help.

3. The State Department denies stopping help.

4. Obama denies stopping any help. Obama refuses to say what and when he ordered help. Obama says he instructed the military to give all assistance they can. Show me the orders and what time they were ordered, and what was Valarie Jarret's advice on this.

The President is a liar and allowed good Americans to be murdered due to his incompetence.

Exactly - they reacted too slowly?
They didn’t send help at all.

Heck....help was ready - help was eager to go.

Help was told to STAND DOWN

Even if O wins this election it is possible we would head right into impeachment and criminal probe.

The rescue actions all start automatically, and proceed automatically. It must be this way, in case the POTUS is in the helicopter etc between secure meeting places. The working assumption is that the military works full-speed-ahead back from an actual projected rescue time. This is what military planners do for a living. The only “hold back” lines are they must get positive authority from POTUS to cross an international border.

This would even be in the case of a “hot pursuit” by one of our fighter jets in some incident chasing an enemy jet. If this was not in a ongoing war with SOPs and ROEs, but part of some unexpected “incident” then the US jet would have to turn back prior to crossing the border. Only an order up and down the COC from pilot to POTUS to pilot will allow him to cross the border.

This can happen in minutes by secure phones, but the order to permit cross border must come from POTUS (via the COM, the pilot does not speak to POTUS.) The pilot just hears, “go ahead you are cleared to cross the border.” This is because some jacked-up jet jockey could start a new war by accident. It has to be this way. Look at the Turkish/Syrian border, and how key borders are. Jets stray, next thing you know artillery is firing off in response, and it can turn into WW3.

So you can see, Beghazi, despite all lies and obfuscations, must rest at Obama’s feet. He is the one and only “go or no go” to cross a border. The rescue op was already inbound, so to speak. On a path to a rescue time. But it still had to cross a border.

If Obama said, “No,” then went to bed, they might try beating on his door, but if Axlerod holds them off, not even that can help. Case closed, until POTUS wakes up.
“No” means “no” when you are POTUS. He goes to bed, that’s it until he wakes up.

Exactly!
Obama in his interview with that local reporter said he told
everyone to secure the lives of our folks. So where is the written order? Who did not carry out the Presidents order?
Did Obama give an order to stand down or rescue? Lets see the order.

That explanation is iffy for me. Iran is on Syria’s side—kind-of. I think in actuality Iran has switched to straddling in Syria.

The Imams and Islamic scholars were spanking Ahmadinejad for working fully for al-Assad and causing the Sunnis to be pushed to the outside. They direct that Iran should seek to reconcile all Muslims.

*turkey @ 48:47-(*53:50) (*58:11)-1:00
*syria @ 1:00 - 1:10:41
(please,find time to listen to all of it, even though it is very long)

Iran, Ahmadinejad and Iran’s Revolutionary Guard/QUDS are Twelvers. They have put out a video about it, too.
h*ttp://u313.ir/index.php
http://atimetobetray.com/blog/iranian-video-says-mahdi-is-near/

Iran expects to lead this “Islamic Awakening” as it is oft referred to in most all the Muslim papers. The Imams as well.

I think Turkey expects they should lead this Caliphate, not Iran. Turkey is not our friend. Turkey will not cede Syria to Iran. Damascus is too important. Saudi will go down once Damascus is decided. Turkey or Iran will ensure such.

Iran is and the QUDS are hardline Islamist/twelvers and are already in position in Saudi, they keep that fire stoked in Muslim news sources.They nearly have as many atrocity stories about the Saudis as they do Israel.
h*ttp://abna.ir/list.asp?lang=3&gId=1831

Iran is doing the back-peddle on Syria, saying that no leadership will be any good until both sides can reach an agreement.

They have suddenly become all about *human rights*. Iran has also claimed they would invade Kuwait.
http://iphone.lovely-world.net/iran-threatens-military-intervention-in-kuwait-to-protect-shiites

Iran has set her engines in reverse.

We do know who is responsible for the Benghazi attack—it was Abu Khattala leader of Ansar al-Shariah. Our government was working with them and that is why they ordered a stand down and that is why we will probably never have the truth.

No, I don’t think it was Turkey or Iran—it was a puritanical Isamic militant group and that is more frightening than a state backed attack. We are fighting and being betrayed by Islam and our own governments denial about it.

Also there is much to prove that this wave has been nurtured by the Universities around the world under the guise of Social Justice. Universities and their students are the striking match to fuel.

OWS, Islam and global communists agree and are allies now—but they will be at war in the end because their end-goals are not the same. They both want capitalism dead and they both want Western strength dead...one wants global communism and one wants Sharia law with Islamic world rule.
