Posted on 11/01/2012 5:38:46 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
The Obama administration fiddled while Benghazi burned and four Americans died.
Late last week, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News reported that CIA operators caught in the attack in Benghazi requested military backup but were denied by higher headquarters.
If true, this would exhibit fatal inaction and negligence on the part of the administration or the military's chain of command, or worse, some sort of cover-up.
On Friday, President Obama was asked directly by Denver's KUSA-TV's Kyle Clarke whether our forces were denied backup during the attack. The president dodged the first question. Clark followed up, "Were they denied requests for help during the attack?"
"Well, we are finding out exactly what happened," the president responded. "I can tell you, as I've said over the last couple of months since this happened, the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to."
This is different from what the president said in his Rose Garden speech on September 12, when he mentioned nothing about securing personnel the evening of the attack, or what he said to "The View" or Univision in the weeks after the attack..................
....................Either there was serious malfeasance on the part of this administration or a knowing cover up with shifting stories and blame. Either way, the American people deserve to know the full story of the disaster in Benghazi.

Blood in the water
Everything makes sense through the lens of:
Obama-theUndocumented’s FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS
(and from ObamaCARE to Benghazi, it shows).
From CNN, no less..
Uh oh.....you know you are in deep doodoo when CNN does their job.
IMO .. the white house gun runners were faced with another potential expose’ and the decision was to take out the potential.
Watch their ratings go up as soon as they start doing their job.
Bill Bennett....... how did he get on?
He is their token conservative.
Let’s hope this gains traction.
Bennett will mysteriously disappear from CNN and he will receive a letter from the IRS for his actions.
****CIA operators caught in the attack in Benghazi requested military backup but were denied by higher headquarters.***
Should read: HINDQUARTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is what happened:
Justice with Judge Jeanine Opening Statement 10/27/12 regarding Benghazi coverup.
Well, this IS Bill Bennett, not Wolf Blitzer.
He secured the dead bodies,,,gotta understand the nuance. sarc/
“IMO .. the white house gun runners were faced with another potential expose and the decision was to take out the potential”
Yep and give the looters three weeks to clear the evidence out of the Mission while the FBI waited for “Visas”
What a fricking joke.
The Benghazi gun running for the Syrians was under the radar but not unknown. Our working with the Al Queda was not unknown. What I believe that the administration was doing was an October surprise. The idea, reduce security in Benghazi so that any group could come in and have nonviolent access to the ambassador. After the ambassador was kidnapped the POTUS could step in and negotiate a release, Obama would be a hero and be reelected.
The problem was it was such a secret plan that the ambassador didn't know about it and the CIA operatives only a mile or so away didn't know about it, they did what they were trained to do, they tried to stop it. Al Queda now thinking that they had been double crossed got mad and started killing and breaking things, its what they do. Obama didn't send in help because he was trying to work with his contacts to retrieve his original idea and save his election.
Whomever it was that was in contact with the Al Queda kidnappers was just not getting through and a cool October surprise turned into a deadly miscalculation.
It is hard now for the administration to come up with a good reason for doing what they did that night without revealing the truth. I don't envy those in the White house who were partakers in this evil plot. Most of them should rot in jail.
One thing's certain, if they don't shut down the internet, We just may be able to re-claim America and truly spread the word of individual and liberty under a representative Republic form of government
('Course, thaT'll have to happen HERE first)
Well, for my next door neighbors, I am sure this is a shock to hear about this today for the FIRST time. They watch nothing but CNN, imagine their shock this morning. And to have the CNN piece to be quoting Fox is amazing. (Got a kick out of the “if it’s true”). I wonder if they will keep their life size Obama cardboard statue in their living room? As someone said above...this is blood in the water.
