You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.
Obama is a biological-ideological issue of the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats.
As that crisis gets closer and closer our military members are going to have to choose sides.
The Hood and Thugs are running the show at the white house. Fire them all!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How much longer are we expected to put up with this b*llsh*t??
We have a coup brewing?
My thought exactly. What soldier would go into battle now knowing that he might not have his six covered ?
Well, I didn’t look for anything about the Admiral.
When I did, all the reports said was “relieved for inappropriate behavior”.
Two (and maybe more) front line staff officers get relieved in the same week, right after the Bengazi attack.
Hate to use old lines on you, but all I can say is
This doesn’t just look a little shady, this damn flat reeks.
Thanks for the ping.
God bless...and hang tough! (I know you will);-)
What’s the history on these two replacements? Are they gay, muslim, and/or usurper supporters?
A) Panetta said their was a lack of intelligence on the situation on the ground preventing forces from “rushing in”
B) Obama said his first act was to direct that we do everything possible to secure ALL our personnel and embassies.
C) If the POTUS had given such a command, Panetta’s statement would be moot.
D) So “everything” wasn’t done or Obama never made such an order.
E) Either way, Obama as POTUS is a POS as a CIC
Aside from that, this stinks.
Impeach the bastard! The Clear and Pres__ent Danger in the Oval Office!
The CIA guys that were killed were told to stand down. They didn’t. Disregarding orders? Sounds like they did.
No man left behind. First instinct is to save Americans in harm’s way. As well it should be.
Obama made the political decision not to go in. It was a 50/50 chance of success and he didn’t want a Carter failed Iran rescue. So he left Stevens hanging. Then he left the entire situation hanging.
Harms way? That’s what soldiers do. The ex SEALs would have elevated and given a threat assessment. 50 unfriendlies with AKs and mortars. That was relayed up the chain of command.
Several have said 5 pm was when Obama decided not to go and them he retired for the night.
Ham would know that. Panetta would know that. There will be a paper trail as well.
WOW! This is very informative! Obama is taking tactics that Erdogan (Turkey’s PM) did to remove tops generals. This sent a message to the Army to not even think of a coup. We might have more going on here thn meets the eye.
Damn, there is so much we’ve yet to learn. Obama’s “stonewall” is crumbling brick by brick and at this rate it will take months to break through to find the truth.
So it was the ex-SEALs who they wanted dead. They definitely wanted someone in that fight dead.
Q: Does this mean that the four who died were all complicit in Obama’s gun running?
Knowing how the Army works, I have a lot of trouble believing this.
I don't have trouble believing this with Marxists in WH, DOD & State.
Not necessarily, the CIA was allegedly trying to locate heavy duty weapons that had been looted from Quaddafi’s stash. Weapons that incompetence of Obama Administration failed to secure.
State Department and Ambassador may or may not have had a different agenda.
Katherine Herridge will be on Huckabee Sunday at 7 pm and she has lots to report on the subject. It’s worth listening.
What we have going on here isn’t a coup, it’s what dictators do to prevent a coup.
It’s called a PURGE.
The “soft purge” whereby non compliant or suspect officers are simply forced out or have their careers terminated over trivial stuff has been going on for several years now. I think that Lt. Col. Allan West was an early victim of the soft coup, as was Terry Lakin who doubted Hussein’s qualifications to be CiC.
With the Bengazi massacre (a minor massacre but nonetheless...) and the sudden sacking of at least 3 major Commanders, we just saw the soft purge ramp up a little.
Had a General resisted their “apprehension” (arrest) or displacement, I have little doubt that they would have been “neutralized” on the spot. This Chicago bunch plays for keeps, especially when they are working with the Ikwan/Jihad.
When Staff Officers start meeting their demise from “friendly fire” or mysterious accidents like the one that took out an Agriculture Secretary some years back - then you will know that the “Hard purge” has begun.
If Stalin’s model is resorted to, as it well may be, they will simply be taken out and shot.
Whatever remains of the US Military after a successful purge will not mind turning against the American People one little bit. Even if they do mind, they WILL obey.
Good luck with your hunting rifles guys; they are no match for the technical and tactical resources of even a surviving third of the US Military, never mind foreign “helpers”, domestic and imported Hajis and Obama’s Mercenaries.
If our military can’t or won’t save us, then it’s entirely up to God.
If you were God, would YOU save us?
For God’s sake; don’t let it happen, guys!
Don’t have to win them all, just leave a scar every chance you get!
Thanks for the heads up....I’ll have to watch...call me crazy, but I’m not getting it...trying to figure out if the looted weapons were in the hands of pro-Quaddafi? Were we going to get them back and ‘redistribute’ them with the rest of the guns we were running to Al Qaeda?
If this is indeed a major cover-up and coup in progress do you think you are going to have a secondary source!!!
Phhhhhtttt.....you trust the government press too much.
So the rumors have now moved to the next level of news. I find that more interesting. Either Gateway Pundit is stupid to run with rumor or they have someone to back this story up.
I think this calls for a filibuster! Nothing will happen before the election. A filibuster on this would put a monkey wrench on every other agenda on Obama's list in a lame duck session!
You scenario is plausible. I still get cold chills as I remember Charles Woods talking about the President as this cold fish. No doubt in my mind that he is that sort of person. From day one, this is the impression he gave me.
What's missing is the answer to a very simple question :
Who has the authority to replace the Head of Africom?
And who isn't?
My thought precisely. Obama’s new appointees will be sycophants.
Check back on this story about 24-36 hours later. Then the dust should be settled and we’ll see if an internal purge is beginning or not.
The timing is extremely suspicious.
I’m waiting for the two assets on the ground in Benghazi to come out and tell what they saw and heard (assuming that they exist).
Ty Wood’s father is carrying the spear for America right now and needs all the support we can give him.
It is time to end the High Crimes and Misdemeanor treason and incompetence.
I don’t trust the press at all. But individuals (like the SF LTC that called Rush) have been coming forward.
In order for this "relieved-on-the-spot" scenario to play out, the WH, DOD, & State would have had to had the full and immediate cooperation of Ham's deputy commander and subordinates as well as the Joint Chiefs of Staff, all the while a major terrorist attack was under way.
Just don't see it happening.
Afterward, when the search for a scapegoat was underway, sure, but not during the attacks themselves.
They would never send a soldier to Leavenworth, would they?
The Admiral is in the 5th Fleet AO, not anywhere near Libya. I’ll repeat something I read which is this might be related to his behavior on liberty in Thailand or Malaysia. I’m not sure what kind of trouble you can get into in Thailand as a sailor.
General Ham has been in his position about 18 months. I don’t think it would be unusual to announce the name of the person nominated to replace him. When I was in the Navy you could negotiate your orders 6 months out. I would imagine these career guys spend a good bit of time mulling over what posts they want to bid on.
The use of the words relief and relieve have some tricky connotations. I checked the AFRICOM website also and Ham was still at the top of that. There is some PAO Captain whose major job is to make sure that website is accurate.
I also think that it would be impossible to keep news of a relief for cause under wraps from the 18th until today. There are just too many people who would know down to the General’s driver and they all have access to email and Facebook at this point.
