I believe General Ham was about to thwart this stand-down order and was relieved of his command by a traitor. He needs to be called to testify.

The undocumented fraud was getting high before

He was too busy.

Look at this from the interview of Hicks:

Q : They didn’t miss the flight. They were told not to board the flight.

A: They were told not to board the flight, so they missed it. So, anyway, and yeah. I still remember Colonel Gibson, he said, “I have never been so embarrassed in my life that a State Department officer has bigger balls than somebody in the military.” A nice compliment.

Q: Now, at this point, are you having communications with Washington?

A: I was in communications with Washington all night long. I was reporting all night long what was happening to Washington by telephone.

Q: When these Special Forces folks were told essentially to stand down, what was your next move? Did you have a recourse? Were you able to call Washington? Were you able to call anyone at this point to get that decision reversed?

A: No, because the flight was — the flight was leaving. And, you know, if they missed — you know, if the vehicles didn’t leave when they leave, they would miss the flight time at the airport. And the airport — you know, we were going all the way to Mitiga. The C-130 is at Mitiga, which is all the way on the other side of Tripoli.

Q: What was the rationale that you were given that they couldn’t go, ultimately?

A: I guess they just didn’t have the right authority from the right people.

>> The account from Gregory Hicks is in stark contrast to assertions from the Obama administration

“Stand down” (let them die...)

Dereliction of duty.

Wow. Looks like See-BS is FINALLY “seeing the BS”.

Maybe thye feel it is more important to inculpate Hillary and save the “One” from a tarnished reputation, even at the potential loss of the Whtie House in 2016.

After all, they will still have 3 years to build her up again and tear down anyone we geet to challenge her.

Think about this — they had to know this order to stand down might get out and how it would look if it did, yet they were willing to take that risk. Why? Was it all politics or was it something more sinister?

Yeah, the person who relived him opf his command has a LOT of blood on his hand and the person who ordered him to relive him of command has a lot of blood as well to...

At the ceremony when the four bodies were returned to the USA, didn't the hilldabeast look them in the eye and tell one of the families of those she had left to be slaughtered that she wouldn't rest until those responsible were brought to justice and then go on to speak of the anti-islam video?

My comment wasn’t clear, I was calling for Gen. Ham to testify. The traitor should be tried.

That’s what I get for Freeping on my iPad in a restaurant.

"Obama administration officials have insisted that no military resources could have made it in time"

ONE F/A-18 COULD'VE STOPPED THE ATTACK ON THE ANNEX.

The other question is, was an AC130 gunship overhead Benghazi or not?

"One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a briefing pointer laser. You do not "paint" a target until the weapons system/designator is synched; which means that the AC130 was on station."
