Real Clear Politics Video (at source) ^ | May 1, 2013 | NA

FOX NEWS: Special Report aired the final segment in their investigative series on the Benghazi attacks. Fox News correspondent Adam Housley reported on accusations that the Obama administration dropped the ball.

A special operator who watched the events unfold and has debriefed those who were part of the response spoke to Housley on the condition of anonymity. He suggested more could've been done to save lives...

Whether at Benghazi or Boston, the rats are congenitally oblivious to the Islamist threat at the least, if not penetrated. They are back in their old Cold War mode!

It's worse. Benghazi's call for help was ignored. They were expendable when we could have responded.

Or made a willing sacrifice (of American lives). He doesn’t want to outrage the Muslim world by being too aggressive against terrorism.

If you go back to right after Christmas...there was a ex-CIA guy who came out and noted (from talking with his buddies still in the CIA)....that both the CIA and State Department were totally left in the dark on some US special op’s mission going on in Libya. Neither were being told of the implications, the daily turn of events, or ultimate goal. This is kinda odd because typically...the CIA is in on everything.

So you go through the mess and find that whoever was managing this special ops situation...was someone out of the White House, who directed the special ops chief. Not even the Pentagon bosses were in on what the goal or situation was about.

I suspect in the end....we will find that a mini-war was being conducted by special ops, with some strange ultimate goal, and all three of the big-boys (State, CIA, Pentagon) can claim they were never part of the situation. And this ambassador died mostly....because of a bunch of upset Libyans who were being hunted down or threatened by special ops.

What would have happened if ALL the Americans in Benghazi would have been killed? Would obama and clinton and petraeus gotten away clean with it? Would anyone have even asked how or why? Is this finally going to show the stark evil on charge of our country and will we finally see justice done?

Starting sometime this morning, I might not be able to post as often to keep up with everything that is breaking. I will try, but I don't know how this new treatment is going to affect me, so just in case, please remember that the Benghazi Index link is prominent on my profile page and as long as Benghazi is in the keywords, every article will be in the index.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

Oh, now it's blame the military.

The military was the only organization trying to do something the day the embassy was attacked, and the military was thwarted at every turn.

The State Dept has been a coven of Communists since before Alger Hiss.

This issue MUST be pushed to the forefront. The MSM became unhinged over Watergate. No one died in the Watergate cover up! Everyone on FR needs to call their Congressmen and Senators daily and demand hearings. And not the “kid-glove” hearing like the one held with Hillary Clinton. They need to get the facts and not allow the the witnesses to stonewall.

If the guy is right, WHO could have ordered such operation?

Who had the authority to bypass all three dept (State, CIA, and military)?

We are looking at most a handful of people.

We still don't have the name of the person who issued the STAND down ORDER.

Hopefully that info will come out during the upcomming hearings.

They can cover up 400 dead in Fast & Furious, Benghazi is a walk in the park to hide.

the election, somehow...

Thank you for your service to this country, in spite of your own personal well-being.

I don’t think we can ever come close to expressing our gratitude.

All undercover operations are shrouded with the smoke of plausable deniability. The primary method to avoid complete detection is compartmentalized information. No one person (except the head honcho and/or his direct lieutenant(s) need know the whole scheme. Now I'm just guessing, but the head honcho in your cited "big boys" would not be the Dept Secretary (or Director) but more likely someone with Operations or Current Operations in the job title.

It doesn't matter what gov't organization led this mission, or whether many orgs or only one were involved, the public, and almost everyone in government will never be told the truth. Each compartmentalized element of the truth of what was going on in Benghazi will be deemed a national security interest of the highest order, and protected as such.

You’d think the murder of an openly homosexual Ambassador by Al Qaeda operatives furious that he’d meet with Syrian opposition forces who didn’t share the Al Qaeda interpretation of Islam would be a hot story.

I mean the British, French and Red Cross all withdrew their people based on their own intelligence that something was up.

Could it be that they don’t want the bloody trail to lead up to media favorite Hilary Clinton?
