Skip to comments.U.S. military commandos fought in Benghazi

Masked from public view, two of the U.S. militarys elite special operations commandos have been awarded medals for bravery for a mission that further undercuts the Obama administrations original story about the Benghazi tragedy.
For months, administration officials have claimed no special operations forces were dispatched from outside Libya to Benghazi during the Sept. 11, 2012, al Qaeda terrorist attacks on the U.S. diplomatic mission and CIA annex because none was within range.
The Pentagon, under intense public criticism for not coming to the aid of besieged Americans, published an official timeline in November that carefully danced around the issue.
It said time and distance prevented any commandos outside Libya from reaching a CIA compound under attack. The timeline disclosed that a reinforcement flight 400 miles away in Tripoli contained two DoD personnel but did not describe who they were. Later, the official State Department report on Benghazi said they were two U.S. military personnel but provided no other details. It made no mention of special operations forces.
But sources directly familiar with the attack tell The Washington Times that a unit of eight special operators mostly Delta Force and Green Beret members were in Tripoli the night of the attack, on a counterterrorism mission that involved capturing weapons and wanted terrorists from the streets and helping train Libyan forces.
When word of the Benghazi attack surfaced, two members of that military unit volunteered to be dispatched along with five private security contractors on a hastily arranged flight from Tripoli to rescue Americans in danger, the sources said, speaking only on the condition of anonymity because the special operations forces existence inside Libya was secret.

WTF was really going on...and why!
Four men died as a result of Obama’s incompetence and unwillingness to make a decision. Four American men, representing the United States in a foreign land, are dead as a result of the administration’s recalcitrance.
Why our military has not gone into full coup d’etat mode at this point is completely beyond me. Good men are doing nothing and evil is flourishing.
It’s a real page turner (3pgs) at the source.
It seems the Pentagon is more interested in protecting Obama than in protecting our ambassadors in dangerous places. Boot lickers for the President, just like in a banana republic.

That is what I don’t understand-why good men do nothing...we are sliding to the depths of evil at such an accelerated rate my head is spinning! Are people really so cowardly or is everyone being bribed? Just stunning..
Obama ordered the hit, I’ve said that from the beginning. Yeah...those special ops were in Tripoli? I some great swamp land to sell ya’.
Keep in mind there has been a top leader military purge going on...
PING; Very interesting stuff, when will the congress get to talk to these operators.

Why..I want to know the real reason, what is he hiding, what was the threat to HIM?! Was it a weapons transfer, a CIA op, secret prison he wanted burned.
WTH was it...he needs to be removed from office and interrogated as a enemy to the state!
I have just had it with all these evil vile people..
"Janissaries, created by Sultan Murad I, were young Christian boys from conquered countries (commonly Greek), who were converted to Islam and levied into the Devshirme system (or the "Collection of Children"). They were also nicknamed "slave soldiers", because of their method of capture."
That’s because all the Generals in there now are too worried about their pensions and cushy defense jobs.
All the Generals who voiced any concerns were forced out.
Let Republicanprofessor know if you want on or off this ping list.
And call the rat b*st*rds on your committee back to the hearings and prevent them from continuing to spit on the graves of the victims without consequence.
