Posted on 04/30/2014 8:03:34 PM PDT by george76
Retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said Saturday he has sources saying President Barack Obama was in the room at the White House watching the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya unfold.
Two unarmed U.S. drones were dispatched to the consulate and recorded the final hours of the attack, which killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
This was in the middle of the business day in Washington, so everybody at the White House, CIA, Pentagon, everybody was watching this go down, Shaffer said on Fox News Justice with Judge Jeanine. According to my sources, yes, [Obama] was one of those in the White House Situation Room in real-time watching this.
Shaffer said the question now is what precisely Obama did or didnt do in the moments he saw the attack unfolding. The CIA reportedly made three urgent requests for military backup that were each denied.
He, only he, could issue a directive to Secretary of Defense Panetta to do something. Thats the only place it could be done,

As my 4 year old cousin would say..DUH!! Of course he was in the room, and probably high fiving everyone as four brave Americans were being slaughtered
Barry probably had a queer cat spat with the ambassador, wanted him dead, and wanted to see it happen.
During and after Benghazi, Obama was AWOL as Commander in Chief, Period!
A clear Dereliction of Duty!
If true, and I would be more surprised if it was not, does this rise to the level of treason?
Well maybe he thought they were playing Xbox.
He thought it was a movie.
WATCHED THEM FREAKING DIE. Like a snuff film.
Drip, drip, drip. As interesting and possibly criminal as this looks, NOTHING WILL HAPPEN until a Select Committee with subpoena power is appointed.
I suggest Trey Gowdy to head the committee. Let him get warmed up to become AG in 2017.
Obama could have been in radio contact personally with the attackers themselves. There could be actual recorded audio of him telling the attackers where to aim, and which doors to focus their assault. And nothing, NOTHING would be done about it by the lapdog media and spineless investigative commissions.
So what does it matter at this point?
He could have ordered one drone to crash into the attackers and possibly ended it....
Nah. That would take sense.
Remember, it was a total of 41 Americans who could have died that night, and this President did NOTHING to help them.
Three died trying to save the others, and others were wounded, some severely, trying to stay alive that night.
The central question is what was Obama doing that night?
I am not sure he was engaged at all. No one in the Administration did their sworn job that night.
ozone hole could eat a live baby in front of all and the dumbass sheep that follow would say that baby had it coming.
Why were the men lasing targets under fire? Cuz that was THE PLAN —they were FOLLOWING the plan in the faith others would, too.
Bengazi had no heavy weapons for defense cuz they plan was to rely on rapid response from US aircraft armed with the precision weapons that have become so familiar.
Thousands of unseen faces behind the scenes were moving Heaven and earth to save those men. The Prez had the very smallest, easiest and most important job at Bengazi:
A SINGLE WORD “GO” WOULD HAVE SUFFICED BUT WAS TOO MUCH FOR THIS INSECT, who hoped they’d all simply go away and quietly DIE.
They were fighting for EIGHT HOURS and painting targets for aircraft that NEVER CAME.
The Crux of “Lone Survivor” was they couldn’t establish radio communications during the whole long time they were combatting the enemy.
But imagine instead that same movie, but all while that they’re getting little body pices SHOT OFF THEIR BODY and driven over cliffs onto boulders that their Commander in Chief was WATCHING IT ALL HAPPEN IN PERFECT GLORIOUS DETAIL.
Cuz ya know what?
THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE HERE.
Perfect commo and perfect picture BUT THE SAME RESCUE:
But here is the REALLY chilling part:
WHY would he WATCH it?
Because politically it WOULD BE GOOD FOR HIM if they all died..!
It MAKES SENSE that he was watching it.
In the first place .. it wasn’t a Consulate .. it was a “Mission Station”.
Secondly, my military sources tell me the President should have been given a Cross Border Authority (”CBA”) document to sign so our people could go into Libya. Evidently, Obama did not sign it .. so nobody could move.
We need the evidence showing Obama did not sign it .. and it resulted in 4 Americans dying. No one but the President can sign the CBA.
Drip, drip, drip is right.
This just keeps coming back to the forefront. Like an unpaid bill.
Maybe it WILL make a difference after all.
I think the central question is why did he want them all dead?
I wonder if NSA has done any searching for selfie type photos/videos of what was occurring sent from Benghazi guys from devices before they all died? I remember seeing lots of selfies taken by those bastards dragging that poor dead ambassador down the street with his pants down. They sure as hell got their photos circulated on the net. I wonder if anyone has some from those poor dead guys.
In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbellyIn that paragraph Obama shows no outrage of the terrorist attack but a greater desire to protect Muslims. Its not surprising that Obama did nothing on 9/11/12. He didn't want to upset Muslims.
What brand of popcorn was he eating? </MSM>
Call him up. He’ll be a the tanning salon I bet.
... what was Obama doing that night?
Wasn’t he getting ready to go to a fundraiser out west somewhere?
I don’t think he wanted them dead. I think he just froze. It was a test of character: “YOU! Mr. President! YOU must make the decision”!
And the weakling pot brained homosexual affirmative action teleprompter reader empty suit president choked. He jsut sat there unable to be decisive because there was no one to tell him what to say. Like we all should be surprised.
Politicians evaluate things politically --I think that as things were Of High Moment that day after 5 pm Obama was pondering How Public all these events would become:
"Will there simply be a foreign policy failure? Or instead will a very major Arms Smuggling Scandal come to light, with hearings with stern Senators rattling papers in front of cameras, and witnesses telling heart-rending stories in excruciating detail....?"
"Will these 40 folks here in the field die, OR will there be a very major political scandal that lays low my whole Administration...?"
I don't think the President wished ILL upon any of those guys at all, but out of political expedience that night it really would have been best if they had all Gone Away --that is, if they all had died and could therefore not ever testify.
Obama visited the State Department at 10:50 AM on 9/12 after giving a press statement in the Rose Garden about the 9/11 attack (10:35 AM 9/12).
He left for Vegas later that day.
Tony Schaffer... wasn’t he the one who tried to keep Able Danger alive?
yet they had two UNarmed drones overhead watching
This should be enough to finish his credibility, and possibly his presidency, and will establish his legacy (yeah, I laughed too) Thanks george76.
Was the choom wagons seen close by?
You raise an excellent point, and I think the answer is THEY CAN --they can imagine just sitting there. Because he did:
FOR ABOUT **1.5 MINUTES**
The left jumped up and down, red-faced and neck-veins bulging about those 90 seconds:
We all know he was politely listening to a GOAT STORY --the lefty slob Michael Moore won't let us forget those 1.5 minutes.
But WHAT do we have HERE, now..?
We see that in comparison W was LIGHTNING FAST in his reaction.
I think that he was holed up somewhere with Doug Shulman.
I wholeheartedly agree. I also want him, or Louie Gohmert, or Ted Poe, or my Rep. Michael McCaul as the next Speaker of the House, starting in 2015 if possible.
I've a theory that the plan was for Stevens to be kidnapped then, immediately preceding the election, trade the Blind Sheikh for him.
In which case, there would've been no resistance...and a pre-aware Obama definitely would've been among the viewers in the Situation Room.
However, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods left the Annex and mounted a resistance -- disobeying their orders to do so. As the violence mounted, Stevens was killed -- and the plan was aborted.
The cover-up was hatched immediately...and on short notice.
That was my theory from the start too..because remember before all this happened there were rumors about Obama possibly handing over the Blind Sheikh and the State Department was asked about it and they denied it..I always believed that was the motive for what happened in Benghazi, it was going to be a Stevens for Blind Sheikh swap..in some weird way if that went down I guess Obama would have thought himself to be a hero who saved an Ambassador’s life and he would win a 2nd term..but his plans were derailed when the other three brave Americans showed up to help, Obama and his cronies were NOT expecting that so I think at some point Obama said “F it let them all die” that is what I believe happened and I have always believed that
Unfortunately, we now have another "Commanderless in Chief" in our White House, and it sickens me to see a treasoness president ruining our country. May God have mercy on our United States of America!
“Wasnt he getting ready to go to a fundraiser out west somewhere?”
I believe the following days he had a fundraiser in Las Vegas and an appearance on David Letterman.
From memory, so hopefully I remember correctly!
Same reason he wanted SEAL team six dead. He despises (and fears) the US military, especially the Special Ops folks.
He could say he wasn’t certain if what he was seeing was a real occurrence or maybe an elaborate piece of fiction meant to distract with misinformation. Of course no one would really believe that, but the White House would then consider the matter sufficiently answered and now closed to any further comments. Closed, to all the reporters who wanted to remain on Obama’s ‘buddy list’.
The video cover-up story was so tattered and frayed that it had to be composed on the fly. And they stayed with it for so long, even after it had collapsed of its own inanity, that they had to be covering-up something serious that would deeply harm the administration.
Running guns to Syria was certainly a part of what was going on -- but it wasn't enough to warrant such a transparently desperate cover-up. All that was needed to defuse a gunrunning venture was to mutter "Iran-Contra".
As you, I'm convinced the real crime being covered-up was an Ambassador for Blind Sheikh deal -- made behind the scenes by Obama and Egyptian Prez Muhammad Morsi.
the Benghazi attack was a failed kidnapping plot.
US Ambassador Chris Stevens was to be captured and traded for ‘blind sheikh’ Omar Abdel-Rahman, who hatched the 1993 WTC bombing plot..
Yep that is what I think too, the whole video thing, they just got lucky that someone made an Anti Islam video and they decided to go with it..they knew they would get away with it too, because they have a media SO in their pocket Obama could kill a puppy on live TV and the media would cover it up, so yeah Obama knows he is invincible, he can do whatever he wants and get away with it, he owns the media and the media kisses the ground he walks on
No, he is a loser douche, but that was not treason.
Not a lightweight position.
One wonders that, if true, might another peep or two corroborate Mister Shaffer's story?
If so, that would be huger than huge, n'est ce pas?
If that’s the case then where was his right hand man Valerie Jarret while this was all going down?
He probably had his hand in his pants, playing with "His Pet Goat"...
