Skip to comments.BOMBSHELL: US Forces Would Not Have Been Painting Targets on Ground Unless Air Support Overhead
Posted on 10/28/2012 4:10:13 PM PDT by Truthhunter1
...Then theres this bombshell at BlackFive from a former Delta operator:
Having spent a good bit of time nursing a GLD (ground Laser Designator) in several garden spots around the world, something from the report jumped out at me.
One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a briefing pointer laser. You do not paint a target until the weapons system/designator is synched; which means that the AC130 was on station.
Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on information directly from the target area.
If the AC130 never left Sigonella (as Penetta says) that means that the Predator that was filming the whole thing was armed.
If that SEAL was actively painting a target; something was on station to engage! And the decision to stand down goes directly to POTUS!
This is HUGE. It should be obvious by now that someone is not telling the truth.
As Blackfive says,
This is bigger than Watergate!
The worst has to be the team on the ground knowing that the President just left you to die.

Bombshell fatigue...why did it HAVE to be an AC-130 —tell me that.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
In case you didn’t make it to the MEAT of the article:
... 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.
obama had to be very cautious, you know
Some of his campaign donors might have been in that attacking force
Says AC-130 had to be on station, THEN says an armed Predator was there....inconsistent and speculative without being honest about it.
They’re taking a totally legit scandal and Alex Jones/Art Bell-ing it to death.
This thread is already here and long and great. Join it
Maybe one of the drones had some birds.
A ten to twenty second burst would have made a large difference.
Stop Jihad Now! (Zer0 is FOR Jihad.)
Tough weekend for the liberal media. Benghazi is way worse than Iran Contra. Benghazi is way worse than DESERT ONE. Benghazi is way worse than Watergate. And it’s all Democrat. Oh, the dream has died. Switching the tv on and off, hoping beyond hope that FOX News doesn’t run a story about who has been giving money to the Democrats to set the Middle East on fire. Would they really throw the Secretary of State and the President, our “higher plane” President, into prison? “What’s going to happen to me when everyone realizes I’ve been covering for criminals? Is that considered ‘accessory’?”
Chris Wallace asked Senator Warner about that and he wouldn’t answer if the drones were armed
This Anti-Colonialist doesn’t want to admit we had power over Libya, and he certainly didn’t want to send troops in!
No, it said that a Spectre was **probably** on station but if, as Panetta says, it never scrambled, then it was an armed Predator. Bottom line: there is no painting of a target without there being SOMETHING real nearby ready to drop ordnance...and somebody VERY high up stopped it. I, too, would like to see firm evidence on this and other aspects up this f’ed up tragedy, but POTUS and his crew are desperately trying to classify everything to prevent it from blowing up pre-election. This means that all ANYONE can do is speculate, unless they’re in the know and wish to risk a court martial or criminal charges.
“I told them to secure our personnel and do what we need to”
What kind of a directive is that based on what was going on at the time? That sounds more like a statement that has gone through 10 or 15 lawyers before it was even said.
Any executive that would give such a “directive” should get an “F” because it doesn’r really say much of anything. It is a statement that can later be twisted this way and that.
It in no way gives anyone any idea what to do. “Do what we need to” what the hell does that mean?
Just put those comments in place of some of our most famous moments in history where the Commander in Chief needed to act decisively. He didn’t say that. If he did how did anyone (subordinate) know “what we need to do” means?
Is “what we need to do” mean NOTHING?
Maybe so. Maybe after a 5 pm conversation with Panetta and the General they decided that what they need to do is NOTHING. Then the Directive was given. “Do what we need to do”. Panetta interpreted it as NOTHING.
Calm down, we’ll get this all sorted out after Nov 6. /s
Obama couldnt be bothered with these details, he had a campaign event to attend.
LOL. Is a reboot the same as a reset?
