Posted on 10/27/2012 7:18:05 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said tonight that his sources tell him that Obama was one of the people in the room watching the Benghazi attack go down and both he and Col. David Hunt agree it would have taken an order by the president to intervene.
Further, Col. Hunt said that we were only 20 min away by jet and a couple of hours away by AC-130 gunships and special forces, and the decision not to intervene had to be political.

I guess that means he can't annul the election and declare himself El Presidente for life.
the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, were going to investigate exactly what happened so that it doesnt happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice. ~ Obama
This was the response to the Denver reporter.
We know at 5 pm Obama in the White House met with Pinetta. We know no authorization for intervention was given.
But look closer at what Obama said. Men in harms way and you... Investigate? Just go kill the guys trying to murder Americans.
Stall. Lie. Blame the video. Put it I’m the contxt of the Cairo protest. Lie some more.
I wonder if any of those folks that survived have figured out oBama wrote them ALL off for dead. Once that sinks in we may well get the real inside story. Supposedly there was live video from ground based cameras as well as the overhead stuff. It all may come to light shortly.
Something is being covered up. something worth these mens lives.
Is he still a Demonrat?
That's the story -- Jarrett kept vetoing it and Obama kept vacillating. Finally, as I recall it, Panetta and Hillary gave the go ahead. We don't know for sure, though.
Whatever the truth might be, it's apparent that this man isn't given to making decisions. Particularly good ones...
And don’t forget that Obama APOLOGIZED to the muslim world after he watched the attack live.
Even used the phrase “The Prophet” when trying to castigate blame on America knowing full well he was AGAIN (F&F) complicit in murder.
You too and thank you for the pep talk.
Only thing is, it seems like they were developing their cover story even before the attack happened. And they were making sure there was no security there in Benghazi, for months before this attack - even though a 40-foot hole had been blown in the wall of the embassy and Stevens was requesting more and more security. The story is that Bill and Hillary have been arguing about whether to leak the proof that she had asked for additional security and Obama himself had vetoed it; Hillary doesn’t want to be blamed for Obama losing the election and Bill wants her to expose the truth. There was too much stuff going on IN ADVANCE. It looks too coordinated.
As somebody else pointed out, when Hillary immediately responded by saying that the US government had nothing to do with the making of that film, that was a “tell”. Nobody would have thought the US government had made the film, and for them to immediately deny it tells us they felt a need to deflect on the issue of who created that film and why.
It’s pretty sad when the president of the United States reminds you of the fictional DoD in the horror film Apollo 18. Someone wouldn’t leave you alone to die in some unknown land, unless his concerns about re-election dwarf that for other, fellow Americans, which is what happened in the Obama administration.
Apologized. Mentioned the video six times at the UN.
Then did the righteous indignation bit with Romney in the second debate.
“If this was true would it be categorized as a high crime or misdemeanor?”
Yes! Furthermore by someone who’s considered an enemy both foreign AND domestic.
This dwarfs Watergate. It even dwarfs Fast and Furious.
it’s double bingo nite at the casino with all the shrimp cocktails ya want !
>>Amazing! General Ham replaced 30 seconds after ignoring the Stand Down order?
Just a coincidence.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
I’m going to put on my tin foil hat here and repeat what Glenn Beck posited recently. He said 0zero had made a deal with Egypt to have the Ambassador kidnapped and swap the Blind Sheik for him.
The former Seals screwed up the plan by trying to rescue him.
Sounds crazy but: Normal Embassy protection by Marines was not there.
2 Muslim guards were Stevens security. All rescue attempts were denied from someone on top of the food chain.
If you proposed Fast & Furious it would be impossible to imagin a President doing such a thing....Until 0zero did it.
Number three is the crazy one. He was there in the middle of it. Kill the bustturd now while he is shooting at you... WTF is this find them and bring them to justice crap?
So ? Joe Biden made a bold face lie when he said in front of the American public “ we weren’t told “ or “ we didn’t know “
electric” eyes on” but of course no one was lookin / s
“I don’t think Obama supporters can, and that definitely includes the MSM whose minimal coverage proves it. “
I don’t think your average life-time welfare recipient even knows what Benghazi is or cares that anyone died.
I sent Brett Baier an email today thanking he and Fox for their outstanding reporting of this event. Hope many FReepers do the same.
This is why early voting is such BS. I wonder how many people who went ahead and early voted for 0bama are now having their eyes opened to what this farce of an administration is really all about.
Sorry, the picture you are referring that is posted in #6 was taken in the Situation Room when they were watching the attack on the house where bin Laden was living. It has been posted many times this past year. It is not a recent picture of them watching the attacks in Benghazi.
Think about it.......he could have had a BinLaden rerun. 130s, Seals, Delta! Massive rescue mission, saving the lives of Americans, We would have been watching footage on every station, 24/7 right up to November 6th. Just one word....GO! He opted out, why?
That is some bone shattering logic, my friend.
Of course, there isn't a thing on earth that could have stopped the narcissist in chief from seizing an opportunity to look like Sergeant York on the eve of his re-election bid - EXCEPT - if doing so would rip the covers off his own culpability in a major act of treason.
Benghazigate is blowing up bigger and bigger by the day. This thing is too big for the cabal in the White House and their sycophants in the Ministry of Truth to sweep under the rug. All roads are inexorably leading back to Obama, and there is no way that he will escape the conclusion of The People that HE LET THOSE AMERICANS DIE.
To night a young woman who never voted told me she is voting for Mitt. another young woman who lives with me and who voted for O in 2008 is voting Mitt. keep em coming folks.
Don't you know there is a hurricane going on?
Thanks to the foreign press, we can not trust the American press.
Pat Caddel (sp) was on FNC tonight and he was incensed about our news media. I have never seen him like that.
Great point.......there is no way, if his order was securing the safety of the personnel WHO WERE OBVIOUSLY STILL ALIVE, that he would immediately want an investigation of what happened BECAUSE IT WAS STILL HAPPENING and bring those to justice who DID THIS.....did what it was not concluded. This is a statement made in the past tense.
Obamanoids wonder who this Ben Gazi guy is—did he win “Dancing with the Stars”?
This is why Bath-House Barry lies so often (besides Taqiyya)-he knows his supporters are brain dead.
It sounds preposterous on its face, but it would provide a compelling reason for why Stevens was apparently transported to a hospital. A dead hostage is a worthless hostage.
That is an excellent point.
Thanks Jet Jaguar
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
He forgot to mention number 4: Blame it on some obscure anti-muslim movie that nobody ever hear of
Why would anyone put credence into anything this ahole says?
“This is why early voting is such BS. I wonder how many people who went ahead and early voted for 0bama are now having their eyes opened to what this farce of an administration is really all about.”
I don’t think they would even care. They just want their bennies.
True, but even after he loses the election, Benghazigate will continue to grow as a scandal, which he will not have the power to escape. He's chained to that White House until January next year. Plenty long enough for the entire world to become aware of his historic treason.
By the time Mitt Romney is sworn in, even Democrats are going to be sobbing with relief that it's finally over.
Is this supposed to be Benghazi or the Bin Laden operation?
And there is no doubt in my mind that those 22 Navy Seals were set up to be murdered too.
Sorry no benefit of the doubt to this murderer. Not after F&F and Benghazi.
The theory about the Blind Sheikh does make sense..either that or this was somehow supposed to be a Tehran 1979 hostage situation, but Obama ending up looking like the hero..but something went terribly wrong and we all know how much of a coward Obama is so he’d rather than trying to save these men, let them die so that the truth wouldn’t come back to him. Obama had his internal polling from September, he was doing bad even then, he needed to do something big, and I think its connected to what happened here..he wanted to look like the hero, instead he looks like a giant Zero
link to judge’s show?
Interesting theory, could be. Something more than just ADORATION for their man is going on, I think it goes very deep into a massive Cover UP.
Maybe Obama wanted to do something but he couldn't talk Valerie Jarrett into letting him.
So--to my mind--that is proof Obama HEARD the requests--in real time. And, since we KNOW he did not GRANT or GIVE APPROVAL for the requests to send help, it means he did one thing--which is NOTHING!
Which makes him a real CIC--Coward in Chief!
It is amazing how history repeats itself
If true, the only appropriate sentence isn't 'jail time', it involves a hypodermic needle, sodium barbatol, and potassium chloride...
THE MSN's are complacent in this COVER UP, and should be brought up on CHARGES, their license to operate pulled.
They need to be sued for aiding and abetting, failure to disclose the incompetence of their candidate Obama.
How many major companies have been charged with failure to disclose to the public about their product??? Same here.
I am completely with you there, man
Actually, I think it would be fitting to see him water boarded first.
The idea is to go public, and that person will need to be bullet proof from repercussions, which means s/he will need a US Rep or Senator with clout to see that his pension is not revoked, nor any promotions stalled.
Also, I can't thinkof a serious reporter of good character, other than Bret Baier and Jennifer Griffin, and perhaps Laura Logan, the woman who was sexually assaulted in Cairo and has been speaking out ever since.
