Skip to comments.Benghazi Whistle-Blowers: We Sat And Watched Them Die

The Scandal In Libya: On the night Bengazi burned and four Americans died, forces ready to deploy were told to stand down and our secretary of state cut out of the loop her department's counter-terrorism bureau.
Few people know who Gregory Hicks and Mark Thompson are, but then nobody knew who John Dean was when he testified at the Watergate hearings and blew the Nixon administration and its coverup out of the water.
"I thought it was a terrorist attack from the get-go," says Hicks, the U.S. deputy chief of mission in Libya on that fateful night.
"I think everybody in the mission thought it was a terrorist attack from the beginning," he says and reportedly will repeat when he testifies before the House Oversight Committee of Rep. Darrell Issa on Wednesday.
Yet, also from the get-go, Secretary Clinton seemed determined to put that possibility out of her mind and the mind of everyone else.
Thompson, a former Marine and the current deputy coordinator for operations in the agency's counterterrorism bureau, will make the allegation that Clinton "tried to cut the department's own counterterrorism bureau out of the chain of reporting and decision making" as State responded to the Benghazi attacks.
From the testimony of Hicks and Thompson, it is clear that Secretary Clinton didn't want to know or admit it was a terrorist attack, the only possible reason being that it wouldn't fit the administration's narrative of a victory over al-Qaida in a war on terror that was now over. It would hurt the president she served and possibly her own presidential chances in 2016.
Thompson considers himself a whistle-blower whose account was suppressed by the official investigative panel the Accountability Review Board that Clinton convened to review the episode.

We know, and scumbags decided to blame the 1st Amendment.
I hope he has a food taster working for him.
IBD EDITORIAL PING
So, the news media is leaking all this stuff NOW, after months of them covering it up for Obama, to preempt and lessen it’s shock value on Wednesday? F’ing Bastards.
I’d also suggest a body double...
I would think that would have made a difference.
It wasn’t an attack because that didn’t fit BOs political agenda. Its for the greater good.
This morning I made it a point to watch ABC Good morning America, yea the one where on May 1st Robin roberts wished everyone a happy may day, yea that one. Well, the story that trumped the BENGAHZI CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS SCHEDULED FOR THIS WEEK was probably justin beeber getting jumped at a his own concert. Not one mention of the benghazi hearings, surprised? not really. Our enemies are already beyond the gates. Oh and did you know that the gay basketball player that came out this week was touted by all on the broadcast as a HERO! DESPICABLE HUMANS
Have we seen the end of the Cover-up or will someone slap a blindfold on this investigation and use national security as their excuse?
Of course this was covered up so Obama could get elected.
Not that he wouldn’t get elected anyway.
We stood by and let men die because Obama had a fund raiser the next day in Las Vegas.
The we brought the bodies back. NOT TO DOVER. That was too far for the President to drive when he had another fund raiser that evening. They brought the bodies into Andrews AFB in Washington for Obama’s convenience and then loaded them onto hearses for the trip to Dover.
To me that was about as low as Obama has ever gone. Yet the Media didn’t seem to care.
I predict they will try to spin this in a way that will crush Hillary Clinton, so that the Chicago mob can field their own successor to Obama.
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: My sources tell me Obama was in the room watching Benghazi attack video 10-27-2012
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said tonight that his sources tell him that Obama was one of the people in the room watching the Benghazi attack go down and both he and Col. David Hunt agree it would have taken an order by the president to intervene. Further, Col. Hunt said that we were only 20 min away by jet and a couple of hours away by AC-130 gunships and special forces, and the decision not to intervene had to be political.
Issa said this morning that more info would be released today. I believe the committee has been the source - they want it coming out in advance.
Tribute: The Bravery of Hicks
Of course it was political. There was no way Obie was going to risk a Carter like foul up on a rescue attempt this close to an election.
The Clintons are notorious for their power, though. Haven’t you seen ‘the list’? LOL
Of course it was political and then Barry went to bed after the political decision.
Slept though the night with no problems.
IIRC, someone was relieved of command within a minute of refusing to stand down the response team. The Chicago thuggery of little barry bastard boy’s regime must not be defied don’tchaknow.
