"This apparent abduction by terrorists of our ambassador and then negotiated trade for the Blind Sheikh would have been the October Surprise that would have elevated President Obamas flagging popularity and boosted his approval ratings for a re-election. A dramatic prisoner exchange that saved our ambassadors life However, something went horribly wrong. A cunning and illegal bit of treachery by the Obama White House turned into something entirely different. Obamas October surprise turned into a carnage orchestrated by the White House itself as the President, Leon Panetta, and CIA Director, David Petraeus watched via a UAV real-time feed as a 7 hour attack on the Benghazi Embassy raged. Reportedly, stand down orders were given several times to different units within striking distance."

The other shoe?!
I hear a shoe dropping.
I think I saw this on Free Republic, about 9/20.
Just as FR surmised at the time
Okay, this is scary. Post 1 and 2 at same time. “12:47:47 PM”
I don’t understand why the Won would have derailed his own operation. What’s the point?
Oooops, I mean Post 2 and Post 3.
Admiral Lyons speaks via a youtube video
What "went wrong" was those 2 brave SEALs who were there.
How reliable is this site? How much do we know about this general? If this is the “other shoe”, Obama’s administration is OVER.
Think ‘Bay of Pigs’.............
This was discussed on FR shortly after.
It's entirely possible this was a staged hostage taking of Stevens in exchange for the Blind Sheik, with security draw down and refusals to soften the target.. GONE BAD.
This is the ONLY scenario that makes any sense to me.
Why is the date 1/17/13? Is this current or old news?
nice theory, need some evidence though.....
I’m sure they have covered their tracks well.
uncovered by Lyons and Glenn Beck? ? ? ? I don’t know about this....
Oh, please let this be the smoking gun that brings this socialist tyrant down. I promise to drink my milk and take all of my vitamins...please...please.
what evidence does he have and was he a part of it or is it just hearsay?
That’s the reason Obama went to bed that evening, he was expecting the terrorists to have taken Stevens as a live hostage according to the plan. However the events unfolded differently.
Is this why 0bama is sweating bullets over Benghazi?
Uh..that’s posts # 2 & 3.
...and not to worry...
#3 is just a “ghost” of #2.
Did Adm. James Lyons find this out through other sources or how?
Ditto to that!
In the words of
(I can still say bomb on the internet, I hope)
Here is a video of Rep. Chaffetz saying that Gen. Ham, commander of AFRICOM at that time, told him that assets were near enough to help and ready to go.There is no doubt whatsoever that the assets were in motion preparing to receive an order to go.
ADMIRAL LYONS: All those comforting words that We dont want to put our forces at risk. We had people at riskthey were crying for help! In a situation, you go with the resources you have availableand, in this particular case, we did have that 130-man Marine force recon team sitting there at Sigonella. Even if I only got 50 of them over there, that would have been significant in turning the situation around. We may not have been able to save the ambassador, but we certainly could have saved those other two SEALs that were over on the annex.
ADMIRAL LYONS: In perpetuating this lie, we also had administration officials lying to Congressional committees. Thats a felony. So, What difference does it make? It makes all the difference in the world. You cannot flaunt the truth here, just walk away from it and, basically, tell the American public to stuff it. Thats not acceptable.
The point on the organizing the two Marine anti-terrorist teams in Rota, that was good to go ahead and stand em up. What I find incomprehensible: The first team, it took them 23 hours to go a few hundred miles from Rota to Tripoli. I could go around the world in 23 hours, so that makes absolutely no sense to me.
You have been listening hard and long for that other shoe, too, eh?
After reading the article, I don’t think this is the shoe.
You are right, I read it here, also.
There are two links at this site, to a Wash Times article by Lyons and a video. The video was posted June 22, 2012, so it cannot have any bearing on Benghazi. And the Wash Times article doesn’t mention kidnapping at all. One comment in the Wash Times article mentions kidnapping. Pretty misleading blog post.
.... This originally was a blog post dated on 1/17/2013 and the burden will have to be on the proof. Is retired 4 Star Admiral James Lyons slated to testify to this as fact .... or is it conjecture on his behalf? Many of us surmised this same theory but of course we had no proof to back it up. Hopefully Lyons will testify and has substantial proof to bring this huge piece of the Benghazi puzzle to light.
He didn’t derail it, the Seals did.
Check out the links. They mention nothing of the sort. This article is grossly misleading.
I remember hearing Glenn Beck state this theory many months ago. So, yeah, he did say it.
It seems this story has been around since January... What gives?
Nothing in the links provided supports the claim made.
Not to brag, but: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2950586/posts?page=41#41
And I was only synopsizing what I had read here from others on Freerepublic on this issue.
Knowledgeable commentary on the status of our forces would have no bearing on Benghazi? What planet are you from?
When it comes out of Katherine Herridge’s mouth, I will believe it.
” The Republicans have missed opportunities to discredit the President, to impeach Obama in the wake of waging war against Libya without Congressional approval, and allowed executive privilege to quash subpoenaed demands for evidence on Fast and Furious never released by AG Eric Holder. John Boehner, Speaker of the House, has refused to exercise initiative whenever the GOP could have used much-needed momentum to stem the tide against the incessant assaults against states rights, constitutional rights, and the traditional institutions of America.”
Boehner . Useless.
Will the GOP have the stones to impeach? If not they will be complicit
Click on the links provided at the source - used to present the claim that Lyons is pushing this kidnapping theory. Neither the article or the video mentions anything of the sort.
I was replying only to that stupid comment.
Trading the guy who tried to blow up the World Trade Center for an unknown ambassador would cinch the election for Barry?
Somebody’s smokin’ something.
