Skip to comments.Petraeus and Panetta SpeakóBut Not the President
Posted on 10/31/2012 10:42:43 AM PDT by Nachum
Seven weeks later, the White House still hasn't explained what President Obama did and didn't do during the seven hours of the attack on Benghazi on September 11. And there's been no response from the White House to questions asked by senators or THE WEEKLY STANDARD or David Ignatius in the Washington Post.
We have, to be sure, heard from some government officials. But the information they've provided raises still more questions.
CIA director David Petraeus authorized a statement pointedly saying that "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate"which strongly suggests that Petraeus believes or knows that officials in other parts of the government may have told subordinates "not to help those in need."

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The Weeklystandard site is down......move along.
The implication is that obviously SOMEBODY told the military and the CIA operatives not to intevene, it just wasn't anyone at the CIA.
The Link states.........”Service Unavailable
The service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.”
Wonder if it is service overload or what....
It’s back up now.
If you’ve done things right and you tell the truth, you can give the information right away. If you’ve screwed things up and then lied about it, you have to run a bunch of “What if?” scenarios to see which lie plays best.
Thanks GregNH for letting me know it’s up again
To All, Something in my opinion is not right with this story:
It states Obama called Netanyahu at 8:18pm ET. Israel is 6 hours AHEAD of us, so that would make it 2:18 am in Israel. If the call was for 1 hour, it ended at 3:18 am. Does anyone here really think Netanyahu would stay up at that hour of the night just to talk to Obama? I don’t! And why would they even be told about that phone call..........What is going on
What the heck are we doing training Seals and PJs for years if not to put them in harms way, without knowing the full picture. Besides, what were they getting from the drones and the Americans on the ground?
Betcha there’s plenty of angry Special Forces at Africom who didn’t get to use their skills to save Americans and kick butt.
#5: I heard on the radio Monday that lots of internet sites have been slowed down, but no one knows how, who, or why.
noticeably disrupted. As are my cell phone’s browser and emails
I’m on a drilling location, routed through satellite to a server in Alberta, and everything has been outrageously slow or unresponsive.
Heres the 3rd debate where Obama says when the initial phone call came, he gave an order to “secure those Americans”;
TRANSCRIPT: Presidential debate on foreign policy at Lynn University
Obama Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harms way;
Initial phone call to Washington(which would have been approx 9:40pm at the consulate);
SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL:...I neglected to mention from the top that that agent from the top of this incident, or the very beginning of this incident, has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the Embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington.
OMG...I’m in Cleveland and my internet service, phone, and TV service has been horribly disrupted.
It took 3 attempts to connect to a friend via phone and even then it hung up on me just after telling her I’d try again over the weekend.
Would the press have been be up in arms if some police chief had listened to Matthew Shepard’s screams for help for 6 hours while he was being murdered - and done nothing? I suspect the MSM and Hollywood would still be talking about it. This? Not so much - well, not at all...
That'll give him a tingle...
On the 29th, one of my contacts said:
Been doing tracert to FR from command prompt.To which he added today:
The problem is NOT FR's servers.
It's the internet backbone itself.
It's as if traffic to FR and other sites that have been
critical of Dear Leader has been... helped.
DemUn was rather fast last I was able to check.Now isn't that a remarkable coinky-dink?
Just as my site (nachumlist) was attacked the day before the first convention. Just a coincidence I'm sure.
Just wait until next Tuesday, we may have no internet service at all. Just sayin’...
Exellent work, my dear Holmes. It warrants posting elsewhere...
traceroutes look fairly normal with consistent ping times
any slow down seems to be on the server and not the network
I sure hope so.
Unless the box cars have WiFi.
Let's all meet at the Washington Monument afterwards, as a gathering of spiritual warriors, if you will...
Would you be so kind as to occasionally check and let us know if that suddenly changes?
Not denial of service, just a slooooooooooooooowing of service...........
the final ip address is: 22.214.171.124
to monitor the connectivity to that server, type:
ping -t 126.96.36.199
a sample from my pings:

the time from my system to FR's server is hovering between 77 and 82 ms, fairly acceptable times from FL to CA
Windows command shell?
Do you happen to know the Macintosh method?
All the hops between PSI and NTT are Afrinic nodes.
I checked for the 154 designation and lo and behold:
It's Mauritius, the huge banking center.
Since we are having a Freepathon, I was wondering if they might be up to no good. Another reason might be that we have been following Benghazi so closely, but the slowdown started before that, didn't it?

Obama as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harms way?
Transcript of Second Presidential Debate
OBAMA: So as soon as we found out that the Benghazi consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team and I gave them three instructions.
Number one, beef up our security and procedures, not just in Libya, but at every embassy and consulate in the region.
Number two, investigate exactly what happened, regardless of where the facts lead us, to make sure folks are held accountable and it doesnt happen again.
And number three, we are going to find out who did this and were going to hunt them down, because one of the things that Ive said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with Americans, we go after them.
Thanks for the ping!
Perhaps that episode with the FBI and the internet last summery was a practice run for shutting down some sites.
But, if he received the call and no help came, that surely makes the lie worse. He could not walk it back. It simply looks like an attempt to simply talk enough so that everything sounds like nonsense.
Ham and the other guy know exactly who told them to stand down. But, hey, it’s just another coinky dink they were suddenly replaced and not a peep out of either.
It was also a coinky dink that in the first part of the admin, a handful of other’s here had sites hacked or their computers going wonky ONLY on eligibility threads.
We’ve heard denials from the military and the WH. There’s no one else who could issue orders. Someone, and I think we know who, is lying. The only other answer is that our enemies have hacked into or been given access to the system and if that’s the case, we’re in seriously deep doo-doo.
Someone's all 'Wee Wee'd up"
That we had at the time because we launched a drone BEFORE the attack!
Why would we have a drone hanging around watching?
How did we know we would need a drone hanging around watching?
Who ordered the drone to hang around and watch?
Has anybody's peripherals (mouse, keyboard) not been working correctly for a few weeks? For some reason, the night of the last election, my mouse and keyboard started to lock up. It got progressively worse the next few days.
