Blow-by-Blow: How Obama & Hillary Left Americans to Die
frontpage ^ | 5/9/13 | A. Ahlert

Posted on 05/09/2013 1:39:26 PM PDT by bestintxas

Wednesday on Capitol Hill, three impeccable witnesses offered the clearest evidence to date that the Obama administration’s response to Benghazi before, during and after the terrorist attack that claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, State Department employee Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen A. Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods, was a deadly combination of ineptitude, political calculations, and outright lying. Mark Thompson, acting deputy assistant Secretary of State for counterterrorism; Greg Hicks, former deputy chief of mission in Libya; and Eric Nordstrom, former regional security officer in Libya, offered unshakeable testimony, despite efforts by several Democratic lawmakers to protect both the current administration and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, their party’s most viable presidential candidate for 2016. What the witnesses averred reveals a grim web of deceit likely orchestrated by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to cover up the order to ground U.S. rescue teams that could have easily saved our besieged countrymen in Benghazi.

Some of the most compelling and emotional testimony was provided by Hicks, who offered the House Oversight and Government Reform committee a damning blow-by-blow account of the September 11, 2012 attack: In Tripoli at the time, Hicks recounted how he had spoken with Stevens early in the evening, and there was no sign of unusual activity. After relaxing for a while, he got an alert that Benghazi was under attack. When he checked his cell phone he saw two numbers, one of which he didn’t recognize. He called that number first and got Stevens on the phone. “Greg! We’re under attack!” said Stevens, according to Mr. Hicks.

Besides the four deaths, the really awful thing about this is why did we have to wait 8 months before this was brought forward to the American people?

Where are the reporters who are honestly reporting the news and putting pressure on politicians by demanding answers?

Let’s think about FUTURE abandonment of American citizens, too. If the President of the United States and his Secretary of State decided that the lives of four Americans associated with the diplomatic service were of no importance, American travelers need to think long and hard about traveling abroad—anywhere. If anything negative happens—robbers, health crisis, kidnapping, confiscated plane, etc., your country may or may not help. It didn’t used to be this way. The Alinsky/One-World crowd is a whole new can of worms.

They didn't just leave them to die...

They cut FEST out.

They told the Tripoli team led by Lt. Colonel Gibson to stand down.

They cut the State Dept.'s counterterrorism bureau out of the loop.

They tried to make sure they died.

One reason for delay is “reset button” Hillary totally pissed off the Libyan government by denying their claim that terrorists were behind this and instead claiming Libyans made insane by a video did it.

Where is the General that was relieved of duty that night but then was reportedly never relieved, but retiring early? General Ham I believe is his name. Did he testify, or anyone here know his whereabouts?
