The General who needs to be fired is Dempsey. As John McCain said to Dempsey during the Benghazi hearings (in one of his increasingly rare moments of sanity), the General’s testimony was “bizarre” and “simply false”.

anyone who has served in a combat unit and understand show the QRF works knows that they could have had helped but instead this happened

Obama was told of attack
he talks to his security advisor for less than one minute
he then heads to bed and to sleep
At that time someone gave a stand down order
Next day talking points were put out to the lapdog media while oabma flew to Vegas .

That in itself is grounds of impeachment and th eleft knows this damn well.

This is not news, hell this should be commons sense to most and for the GOP to not have gone full frontal assault on this and to have gone to stop oabma about this and attack the media was one of the most disgusting acts by the GOP.

Still the media will not report this

There is no way to know beforehand how long an attack will last so your argument is completely bogus. I am glad you are retired.

If enough stepped forward, the bad guys couldn’t touch them. But it takes one brave man to start.

There is bravery in combat. There is bravery in standing up and losing your pension and your career. It is easier to be brave in combat.

There is no reason to believe that anyone’s screen name is an accurate representation of what that person has done in real life. I have no basis to believe that this person is a retired colonel, or if he is that he was in the US military or if he was that he retired honorably. He did sign up two weeks ago and is telling us not to second guess the Obama administration.

Let’s pray more and more comes out! Watergate was a bungled burglary, for Heaven’s sake! $ people were KILLED 9/11/12, and another has since died, that I know of. This was not BREAK-IN GONE BAD, but a cover-up of malfeasance, dereliction of duty, and continuation of the fast & furious ‘get the weapons in the hands of people who hate us’ operation. These weapons will probably be used against our own military, if not already!

Yep - like the next event & then next & the next.

How many will it take before you draw a line on accountability: this far and no further?

We already knew this. The reason for the first General being relieved of command was for trying to send help, counter to his orders.

This is worthless unless the Special Ops guy is willing to allow his name to be used, and become a whistleblower. Otherwise it’s just an unsubstantiated allegation.

Yeah sure, Noob. You’re a “retired colonel” my ass. From what KFC? I can’t imagine any present or former military person dismissing the deaths of Americans - - including a couple of Seals who themselves responded to try to save people - - by saying, “Get over it.” You ‘re a loser.

There is no doubt whatsoever that the assets were in motion preparing to receive an order to go.

Will there be accountability or CW2?

0dumb0, Panetta, Hitlery, Holder.... these sonofabitches THRIVE on not being held accountable for anything, past, present or future. Like I have said before, 0dumb0 could rape, kill & roast a young girl on national TV in front of 300 million people and he would STILL get no less than 49% of the vote, with a few squishy "independent" who would vote for 0dumb0 in any case.

The only thing that will get the attention of these traitorous bastards is for CW2 to commence. I really do believe that TX, OK and approx 12-14 other Southern & Western states need to secede in order to re-establish a conservative, patriotic, Christian nation. Let the liberal socialist bastards have their own country -- NE states, IL, MN (my state), CA, WA & OR. We get everything else!

Retired Colonel, yah right, just joined FR on April 13, 2013, and immediately leaps to the defense of 4 infamous traitors - 0dumbo, Clinton, Panetta & Holder.... who all looked the other way when decisive action could have & should have been taken. What would the partisan hack media and demoRATs and liberal “military experts” have said if this happened to a Republican administration? They would be screaming their lungs out and demanding impeachment RIGHT NOW! Take your trolling back to DU!

I have it that General Ham was relieved in real time during the event.

Beyond that no specifics. But it would make sense that he was willing to complete a mission he had ordered even in the face of different orders from Washington.

Something was on station that night and in place for immediate action. Targets were illuminated, giving up position.

Not only did they leave them there. The assets were overhead and in place.

Sickening.

Drawn and quartering is starting to sound like a reasonable punishment.

I would like to see your source for that.

General Ham Is Still Commander of U.S. Africa Command November 3, 2012

That article was published on November 3, 2012 and Gen. Ham was still listed as the commander of AFRICOM on the AFRICOM website for months after that.
