EXPLOSIVE REPORT: FORCES WERE AVAILABLE TO HELP AMERICANS UNDER ATTACK IN BENGHAZI
The blaze ^ | 4-29-2013 | Jason Howerton

The U.S. government had the ability to “react and respond” to the Benghazi terrorist attack and could have had forces on the ground before the second wave of the assault began, a special operator with knowledge of the response told Fox News in an exclusive interview. Due to the explosive nature of his allegations, the special ops member asked to remain anonymous.

“I know for a fact that C 110 the UComm CIF was doing a training exercise, not in the region of northern Africa, but in Europe. And they had the ability to react and respond,” he told Fox News.

The C 110 is a 40-man Special Ops force capable of rapid response and deployment, a group trained specifically for an event like the Benghazi attack, Fox News reports. The unit was training in Croatia on Sept. 11, 2012, just 3.5 hours away from Benghazi.

“They would have been there before the second attack,” the anonymous special operator said. “They would have been there at a minimum to provide a quick reaction force that could facilitate their exfil out of the problem situation.”

He continued: “Nobody knew how it was going to develop, and you hear a whole bunch of people and a whole bunch of advisors say, ‘Hey, we wouldn’t have sent them there because the security was unknown situation.’ If it’s an unknown situation, at a minimum you send forces there to facilitate the exfil or medical injuries. We could have sent a C 130 to Benghazi to provide medical evacuation for the injured.”

The special operator said there are members of special ops and other officials who are still active and involved in the situation. “They would be decapitated if they came forward with information that could affect high-level commanders,” he added.

While he says he doesn’t “blame them for not coming forward,” the special operator said members of the community feel betrayed and believe the betrayal goes all the way to the top. Further, the Special Ops community feels like the Americans in Benghazi were left to fend for themselves.

The White House has said from the beginning that there were no forces available to assist Americans in Benghazi on Sept. 11.

I can easily see balless Barry waffling at the height of the attack - ‘what will happen to my campaign if someone gets hurt?’

Clinton and Obama let our Ambassador die. Sounds just like Boston.

Pray for America to Wake Up

That's how I've always felt about it. I've been using the phrase "twisting in the wind."

Obama and the US State Dept planned the entire affair
and is responsible for the gang rape of the Ambassador.

And responsible for the coverup.

And responsible for the transfer of MANPADs and WMD
which was the reason in the 1st place.

Will there be accountability or CW2?

Why wont anyone understand that we knew we had given them MANPADS so how could we allow planes to circle the area much less send troops in at low altitudes.

They were worried about even more casulaties.

Like FAST AND FURIOUS on steriods crossed with rescueing the hostages in Iran.

Can’t imagine that the 6th Fleet didn’t monitor the situation from the beginning and the Commander in area did not rapidly submit to the DoD a credible intervention plan, no doubt planned and ready to be launched within an hour. Would have loved to have seen Panetta asked under oath why the 6th Fleet did not intervene.
