Benghazi Exclusive: Libyans Couldnít Protect Americans they didnít know were in Libya
Canada Free Press ^

Posted on 05/09/2013 4:16:36 AM PDT by Opinionatedtoday

Urgent. Another layer has been peeled off the giant onion that is Benghazi as we search for the truth that keeps leading us to Syria and the missing Libyan weapons that have shown up in Syrian rebels’ hands—the next phase of the Obama-Clinton regime’s so-called Arab Spring that does not serve America’s interests. Let’s call it what it is.

How many Americans were working in Libya when the terrorist attack killed four Americans, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith, on September 11, 2012? According to a well-placed source that was working with the staff at the Libyan Transitional National Council (TNC) which was established after Col. Muammar Gaddafi was killed, at that time, the talk there was very surprising. Apparently the Libyans thought America had only a handful of people in Eastern Libya and Benghazi. They were surprised to learn the real number. According to my source the number of Americans was far more than the TNC had been apprised of. Are we talking a couple thousand, a couple hundred, what’s the real number and how many witnesses need to be questioned if America is to be told the truth? What I can report with certainty is the number exceeds the number of witnesses who will testify today in the Oversight & Government Reform Committee hearing. As I was told, there weren’t enough seats on one plane to bring them all home. Libya’s TNC was shocked because how could they possibly help to protect the Americans if they didn’t know they were there? Is that why the Obama-Clinton regime did not send help, because no one was supposed to know that they were there?

Obama was/is working with al Qaeda.

Normal Libyans, like normal Americans, are his ENEMY.

The Obama-Clinton regime didn’t respond to anything because all of their actions and decisions are secret and usually made outside of the prescribed channels for such things, by persons not constitutionally approved to do so, and plausible deniability is their only refuge.

Look how they’re blaming it all on “confusion.” “Silly me, I just forgot to give the order...silly me, I was just whacked so I went to bed early...silly me, silly me.” They tried to pin this on the incompetence of lower level flunkies, but now they’re so desperate they’re willing to be thought incompetent (Hillary’s defense is now the “incompetence defense”) rather than reveal their real objectives and actions.

Must have been quite a Spooksburg over there. We can’t know their names, their number, their mission, or their testimony.

Because the media refuses to print anything about Obama that isn’t good- this administration has a blank check for corruption around the world.

They are not only hurting Americans, but other countries as well.

The are building the terrorists- and even inviting them in.

Let’s be honest.

I ping. You decide. But it seems to me that Iran has benefitted at least as much as the saudis.

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

The media cannot print what they don’t get to print. Since this administration set up a virtual news bureau inside the office of his excellency, the media relies upon press releases issued by fax to their cells entirely. There is no digging or interviewing anyone, no credibility sourcing, no anything. They look forward to attending the annual roast so they can look important and butt hips with the powers and the Hollywood stars some of them believe they are. At the occasional live news conference with his excellency, they refuse to ask probing questions or follow ups for fear his excellency will publicly pee on them and they will be shunned in the future...no face time on TV no stardom. The corrolary to the theory to not listen to what he says but watch what he does is this: do your own research paying no attention to what they say.

Truth2012 ~:”Because the media refuses to print anything about Obama that isn’t good- this administration has a blank check for corruption around the world.”

The mainstream media won’t print / video anything that takes away from ‘their candidate’;
they chose him , presented him ,
and didn’t even question his eligibility credentials,
and won’t question his leadership and credentials (?) even now.
That is why I prefer to get my information from international and foreign sources .

Truth2012~:” They are building the terrorists- and even inviting them in.
Let’s be honest.”

The wolves are not only in the hen house , they are now in charge of the hen house.
This administration has invited them in !
The fact that this administration selectively supports only some parts of the Constitution,
and then ignores or over-reaches on other parts of Constitutional law, shows their disdain for the “Law of the Land”.
The fact that they ignore our nations sovereignty and our own southern border gives testimony
to the fact that they place higher value on reelection and ideology than benefit and stability of the country.
Under normal times , this would be construed as subversion.

The fact is, Obama is a little man who lacks the competence to make decisions and to act. He is not pro AQ, he is just unable to act. He lacks the ability and the grit to do any thing but dither.

The fact is, the dominant operational factor in Washington, the State Department and the White House was panic. The concept of being attacked could not be comprehended nor believed. The fact that people could be or were being killed was not possible. There was no viable solution that could b produced by action at the peak of the re election effort. The result was dithering, in effective non action.

The result was to take the default position...... lie, lie, lie.

Sounds like her sources can’t even be called whistleblowers because they are within the Libyan government.

One of the big problems we face is the media’s constant ridicule of anything they can call a “conspiracy theory”. We’ve got evidence that the ARB report was a whitewash that didn’t even interview critical people, and that at least one member of Congress who wanted to speak to critical people in Libya was not allowed to do so without a DOS lawyer present (sounds like DOS knew they should be defendants already). Yet it’s being presented as if there is no explosive news, the hearing was “Republican”, and it’s all conspiracy theory stuff.

Once again, those who dutifully mocked the “crazy conspiracists” without analyzing the evidence have contributed to an epistemology that immunizes the public from ever being able to see a conspiracy when one truly exists. Our alarms have all been disabled - in the society as a whole just as surely as everybody ignored the repeated requests for additional security because the evidence suggested major danger in Libya.

The author of this article needs to be in touch with Jason Chaffetz and/or others, and let them know who they need to be in contact with, in order for the real investigation to proceed.

So far we know that the excuses given by this regime are wrong. There is a reason they are lying, and we need to know those real reasons. Whatever those reasons are, they are big enough that the regime is willing to tamper with witnesses and argue their own incompetence rather than have the real reasons revealed. It is obviously not piddles we’re talking about here. Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and there’s been a LOT of smoke put up regarding Benghazi.

Full Agreement Mesta. The islamic clerics have much to brag about from their pedestals (in the snake pit) in both countries as to how an American President was cowed into Standing Down by the might of islam. The saudi royals will be so proud of their control over obama / hillary / panetta and the American People.

No one knew or could have known if any relieving force would be walking into a trap. Mogadishu.......

In our entire military there is only one force, the Marine
Corps TRAP, Tactical Recovery of Aircraft and Personnel force that trains and is armed for and has helo insertion options for hot LZ’s.

It is also the only force that goes in heavy, with weapons platoons that can terminate all opposing forces and anyone foolish enough to stay around.

The problem is that they are only deployed on MEF’s, Marine Expeditionary Forces of which we have only three deployed worldwide at any time. Two are dedicated to the Persian Gulf - Afghan theater.

One is deployed to the eastern Med and has been committed to the Syrian - Jordan - Israel - Egypt theater. Libya was not considered an active threat as compared to the eastern Med.

We can only do so much. There was a SST (site Security Team) on site that was pulled out even though it was free and available to Dept of State for another 6 months.

All this talk about this unit or that 4 SF personnel could have gone in is just ignorant talk. This is the real world folks, instantly desperate by a clever and constantly probing enemy.

There are a lot of people, Freepers included, who think that SF troops are men of steel. In combat situations, they're just high quality infantry. Their forte has been sneaking in and out before the enemy reacts. Inserting them into a combat zone where they have little idea where the enemy is located and without air or artillery support means they not only lose the surprise factor, they hand it over to the enemy. 4 guys can't survive against hundreds of armed hostiles without round-the-clock air cover, let alone rescue people under siege. Marcus Luttrell is a living, breathing example of this truth.

Good points.

The enemy at Benghazi had three kill zones set up between the CIA Station and the Mission and knew exactly which vehicles to fire on as they drove with traffic.

Good point on the surprise factor. Every SF team requires stealth to do their mission. When they are compromised there is almost always an evac order. Only TRAP units understand and are trained and equipped to shoot their way in and shoot their way out.
