BUSTED…If Obama Gave Order to Protect Benghazi Heroes There’d Be Paper Trail (There Was No Order)
GatewayPundit ^ | October 26, 2012 | Jim Hoft

Earlier today Barack Obama told Denver’s WUSA TV this in regard to the Benghazi 9-11 terror attack,

“I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, we’re going to investigate exactly what happened to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice.”

It’s more likely he gave the order to stand down and then retired for the night.

Regarding the act itself:

- if he gave no order, why did he fail to protect and defend the US, as per his oath of office?

- if he gave such orders, why did everyone in his administration lie to the American people for 2 weeks?

Regarding the cover-up:

- who told Rice and the Carney kid to go on TV and lie about what really happened?

They are in the process of wiping away the real paper trail and will soon claim there was never any “stand down” orders.

A suggestion/warning for all ambassadors/embassy staff posted in dangerous areas.

Don’t depend on help from POTUS, SOD, SOS or the CIA! They will not respond to any SOS’s. Then they will deny that you asked for help.

Buy or rent an Iridium Sat Phone and put Fox News Desk, Rush, Drudge, Rush and Free Republic on your speed dial, to text or call when you don’t want to be slaughtered and need help.

That way the liars of this administration in charge of denying protection for you, can’t deny that you asked for help.

Don’t waste your remaining time contacting ABCNNBCBS! They are too busy protecting Obozo and his liars while looking for binder and racism lies save the butt of the traitor and his fellow thugs!

If Obama defended Americans against Abu Khattala leader of Ansar al-Shariah, somebody in that group would have become a song-bird. Obama worked with them, they are his partners.

Obama Blackmailed. Americans died. Image is most important.

The US Ambassador was Ron Browned. SEALs took their oaths at heart and rushed to save him. This was the un-doing of the plan (and also the motivation for Biden’s cue ball mouth off to the family).

He needed a dead Bin Laden and a crippled Al Queda for re-election. The truth about Benghazi would make his Al Queda story a lie. So, say there's no planned attack and it was because of a video.

How long before we're told that a very critical e-mail server at the WH unfortunately went on the fritz over the Labor Day vacation and the entire e-mail record for all WH communications - classified and nonclass - have been lost.

And in addition, all backup media have been misplaced... although an "internal investigation" has been ordered by the President, and may yield clues as to their final disposition.

This is why the order Obama says he gave is total BS.

Here is the way it works

Situation happens//Situation is analyzed//Mission statement is developed//Courses of Action are selected and analyzed//Advantages and disadvantages are briefed to decision maker with recommended COA//Decision maker, (Read POTUS when employing US Armed Forces)//POTUS then says Execute COA as briefed, or different COA, or do nothing for awhile, or go to Las Vegas. This decision is then communicated by SECDEF thru the Joint Staff directly to the Combatant Commander AFRICOM. Obama who said "Do everything you can" is not an order that the military can legally carry out. These people are dangerous armatures and should be held accountable. I hope one of these Flag Officers comes forward with the truth.

By the way the mission analysis I described above sounds complicated and lengthy but our well trained Special Operations Forces can do it in minutes while enroute to the objective if they have to.

Now I was only on active duty in NavSpecWar for 5 years, but it was imprinted deeply upon my brain that ONLY the POTUS can give cross-border permission. Probably a million living ex-military officers know this like they know 2+2=4. So this Benghazi fiasco is Obama’s baby 100% and there is no way for him to wiggle out.

The system is designed to ENSURE that when a crisis is happening, (and a missing ambassador with a consulate under attack in Libya is “Crisis Level Infinity”), and military assets are already charging in to the rescue, the president must be in the loop to grant the the cross-border authorization. Nobody else can do this. This one formality must be followed, “just put your intitials here, Mr. President, for history,” so to speak. Boiler plate, but it must be done.

The POTUS has to tell the Sec. State and JCS, “Yes, do it, execute the rescue, cross the borders.” Then it WILL happen, without delay, since the military is already on the way, flying in from all directions toward Benghazi.

(Can you imagine Reagan or either Bush saying “No. Cross border permission not granted. Stop the rescue. Stand down.”)

But if POTUS says at 5pm DC time, “No military action, no cross border,” and then he becomes “unavailable,” then his last standing order stands until he changes it. So if he went to bed, for example, nobody could change his standing orders.

I imagine that a lot of extreme military, CIA and State Dept. craziness was going down while Obama was sleeping. Aircraft must be told proceed, or return to base, or they fall from the sky. I imagine many HEATED arguments around the globe on phone, text and email, subject, “Well wake the damn president up!” Followed by, “I can’t! You MUST stand down the mission!”

Just imagine dozens of inbound planes, jets and helos. Ships moving at full speed into position to be “lilypads” for long-range over-water helo refueling. Airborne refueling tankers all head to the area. It’s a complicated ballet. The Pentagon is wide awake, the military is on full alert. The rescue is in process, from the first minutes after the alarm.

Everybody in all the planes and involved HQs knows how many minutes/miles to the Libyan border, Benghazi, and their “bingo fuel” moment, when they must turn around or run dry and crash. Ships can “loiter,” but planes fall from the sky.

So you can imagine why General Ham of Africom was (if true) relieved for refusing to stand down. He probably KNEW Obama was “unavailable,” and was screaming over the phone, “Well, wake him up, dammit!!”

Planes and jets and helicopters and ships and commando teams are zooming all around the central Med, keying in on Benghazi——

And in that environment, OBAMA WAS ASLEEP AND UNREACHABLE!!!!!

Resting up for Las Vegas! With a MISSING AMBASSADOR, in Al-Queadatown!

No wonder General Ham didn’t want to stop the rescue. He knew the derelict captain was not on the bridge of the ship of state.

BTW, who issued the orders for Wood to “Stand Down”

(There Was No Order)

Kaffee: *Colonel Jessep, did you order the Code Red?*

Judge Randolph: You *don't* have to answer that question!

Col. Jessep: I'll answer the question!

Col. Jessep: You want answers?

Kaffee: I think I'm entitled to.

Col. Jessep: *You want answers?*

Kaffee: *I want the truth!*

Col. Jessep: *You can't handle the truth!*

I know, I know.. This isn't a laughing matter, but I just couldn't control myself.. sorry.. carry on.. :)

You understand Tom, They now HAVE TO BE REELECTED? With Romney as the new President, the House will start the investigations.. It’s only a matter of time before the house of cards start to tumble..

This isn’t a mistake, this was a crime, and the consequences are Dire, and prosecutable.. There will be no holding back, it’s Katy bar the door, THEY MUST WIN AT ALL COST!

We can’t let them win or the lives of these honorable men, and the respect for the USA, was trashed without JUSTICE..

Good GOD Travis, I knew it was possible, but now we know how it happened..

You are right, I was involved in the Bay Of Pigs, although it was so long ago, I remember the officers where furious about JFK loosing his nerve at the last moment, and calling off the air cover.. It was a bloodbath on the beach, no one had a prayer..

After it went down all Hell broke out, so eventually he had to fess up, but it wasn’t in the aftermath, it was later when they had time to soothe the media with a story that was coordinated, which they gladly complied with..

This is the same as it was with the Camelot President as it is for The Messiah.. COWARD BA$TARDS.. Heaven Help us if we don’t EXORCIZE the evil SAND FLEA, from our White House..

Yes, every president makes it very explicit with State and the JCS what his “standing orders” are. A pres. might say, “I’ll give you X amount of discretion in a hot-pursuit case,” or they more likely will say, “Sorry, no cross-border at all, ever, without my explicit order.”

So if Obama said “No cross border rescue” and then disappeared, with Axlerod and Jarrett saying, “Sorry, he’s not available,” to everybody down to General Ham, they can’t do jack about it.

Standing orders, a very critical concept to understanding Benghazi.

What’s amazing is, there are so many reprobate helpers surrounding this piece of trash that something this big can be falsified literally in plain view.

carney, gibbs, jarrett, et alia., but also lower level gnomes trotting the corridors and sub levels of the labyrinth of W DC.

In fact, it was just the opposite.

Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: My sources tell me Obama was in the room watching Benghazi attack.

He also replaced generals and admirals who refused to stand down-

What you have stated.....I agree totally.... Now regarding General Ham, his XO relieved him of his command within a minute... I’ll say it again...”WITHIN A MINUTE”.... This smells of a preplanned action... The WH knew Gen Ham would deploy forces, so the WH had the XO ready to execute the stand down orders.
