The number of career casualties from being thrown under the Obumbler bus continues to mount...
If so, then he should open his mouth. What can Obama do - demote him?
coherent explanation = plausible lie???

The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.
General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.
The story continues that now General Rodiguez would take General Ham's place as the head of Africom.
Panetta was an army intel guy and his son is a navy intel reservist. Now this son is a lawyer in Oakland, Calif. Now that his dad covered up the rasons for the deaths of SEALs I wonder what this man thinks of his dad...?
Here is some more interesting “stuff”....
This was a reply on another site that raised a Very Plausible scenario ———
“It is now known that Congress knew Obama has been trying to figure out how to release the blind sheik in US prison to the MB in Egypt. To make his release acceptable to the American public and to clinch the election, Obama had to create an October Surprise hostage exchange - Stevens for the sheik. To help the MB capture Stevens, Obama had to remove all security from Stevens, lest a fight break out and Stevens gets himself killed. But the two ex-seals that came to Stevens’ aid did put up a fight. After hours of trying to capture Stevens alive, the terrorists finally decided to end it and kill them all.
From sources such as a 20 year CIA veteran interviewed by Glenn Beck, we know that it is entirely unreasonable to believe Obama didn’t know minutes from the events beginning to unfold - that everyone knew from the start - Hillary, Obama, Petreaus, Panetta, etc. We now know that the ex-seals were told to stand down (allow capture?), that the CIA was told to stand down, and that any rescue mission being considered came (intentionally?) too late.
Do you see where this is going? Obama wanted no resistance. He wanted Stevens captured alive.
To hide the WH-MB link, Obama began to push the video as the reason for Stevens’ death. But when the lie wouldn’t hold any longer, Biden said that Obama and Biden never knew that Stevens’ was lacking security, only to find now that this is too incredible to believe.
The press continues to ask, “What did Obama know and when did he know it?”, and are refusing to ask the real question, “Why was Stevens’ request for security repeatedly intentionally denied, and why did the Obama administration refuse to launch any rescue operation?”
Panetta said “(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place”.
I understand the fear of a standing military as a threat to individual sovereignty of a free We the People and the need for civilian control but that doesn’t mean the Commander in Chief has to be grossly ignorant of military strategy and tactics. A president should at least be intelligent enough to accept advice from officers that spent their lives becoming experts.
Obama and Panetta are as qualified to understand advice from the JCS and other top level commanders as they are to advise a brain surgeon how to operate.
How can our nation survive when voters elect such utterly incompetent leaders and approve their appointments to positions like Secretary of Defense or State?
Seems to me General Ham was playing for the wrong team (ours) in 0’s estimation.
General Ham is a good man.
Wouldn’t be surprised if this is true.
This piece of dogsh!+, this African communist Ubama, must GO.
If General Ham had the stones to defy a “stand down” order and spin up a rescue mission, then he probably has enough nerve to name names and tell the truth.
Come on, General. Your fellow citizens need to hear some honesty for a change. Let’s hear your story.
The question you need to ask yourself is, “They are covering up something worse than the deaths of four Americans. What could be more damaging to the President?”
Jennifer Griffen, Nat’l Security correspondent for Fox News tweeted :
“Rumors Gen Carter Ham relieved of command over Benghazi NOT true, according to multiple well placed sources. Long planned change of command.”
Sounds like a Hitler/Stalin-type promotion - to the Eastern Front.
