Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: My sources tell me Obama was in the room watching Benghazi attack
The Right Scoop ^ | Oct. 27, 2012 | The Right Scoop

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.

The CIA didn’t deny requests. white House didn’t deny. General Hammsaid he wasn’t asked to intervene.

Clintonian lawyer parsing of language. They didn’t deny but they didn’t respond at all. Total bs.

Biden in his debate lied. Obama not only lied but indignantly called down Romney.

“He wanted the ambassador dead in a protest over a video. The CIA’s ex-seals were told to stand down and let em die. They screwed up the whole plan by saving most of the folks at the compound.”

Since these SEAL are clearly heros should there be discussion of the two of them being awarded a CIA medal post humously from the President himself?

WTF is this find them and bring them to justice crap?

The liberal concept of warfare.

Involves investigations, Miranda warnings, grand jury proceedings, a court, a judge, a jury and a trial...before you set them free on a technicality.

Is he still a Demonrat?
______________________________________________________

I think he’s still a blu-dog. I have MANY friends who are. I disagree with them on many issues, but they do love this country. Particularly, I have a neighbor I converse with on politics. He has reads EVERYTHING that comes out and loves to listen to my recommendations of what sites to visit....Ed Klein’s book....and going to see the 2016 movie. We have some GREAT conversations.

My other neighbor is an elderly blue-dog. He told me right after the 2008 election......”I think we have the WRONG guy in office.”

These are people who I know and love and have voted for what their parents have voted.....and are still ‘stuck in a rut’ with the Dem party. They are waking up. Believe me.

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 ... There was too much stuff going on IN ADVANCE. It looks too coordinated.

This was my take also. They were so far ahead of this story that I am convinced the WH was working with the Muslim Brotherhood to coordinate the attack.

Of course they watched it in real time, why else would Joe Biden tell TY Wood's father: did your son always have....the size of cue balls. IF he did not already know his son was heroic that night.

Meaning they/he knew Ty disobeyed orders and went in anyway. THEY SAW IT ALL, they knew everything in REAL TIME and were complacent.

Joe Biden made that tongue slip at the memorial service, while they were still saying it was the stupid VIDEO.

I like Griffin.

Also... wouldn’t it be something to call in to one of the radio shows ? You know, one of the screamers...

(lol) wow.

I would think they’d just have to have be up front with them and ask “if I have something that blows the lid off of everything, does the radio host feel comfortable with that ?”

I hear Levin’s rant the other day... wow, great stuff.

Then BO went to bed. Told the tough people in his administration to deal with it just like he told the tough people to meet with world leaders cause he had to go on the View. How this election is so close is beyond me. He needs to be impeached for violating his oath to abide by the Constitution and many other things (or “stuff” as he likes to say)

Good point re Wood. That also may have created a context for ignoring superiors and doing the right thing, orders be damned. Rumors are Ham later tried to do the same thing by sending troops but was relieved of duty.

Of course that is right.

Still, nobama will never volunteer. After the BullShite video story fell though, he has tried to blame it on intelligence then with the latest revelation that they actually knew, he tried handing the Buck to CIA. CIA said “Oh No”. Next has to be State Dept.. Hitlery can not handle that ownership and ever expect to run for POTUS.

It has to come down to her taking the bullet or jumping ship. I’m picking jumping the ship, slick has already been trying to get her to drop a dime on nobama.

If these dirty dems don’t start getting punished for the treason, tax evasion and many other crimes that they commit, then we are done as a law abiding country. Why does it take “guts” to punish them. Why is it so hard for the Republicans to deal with? If Joe Citizen did what these corrupt congressmen do, they would all be in jail.

I’ve been trying to parse the White House spokesman’s claim tonight that “Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi.”

While I’ve no trouble assuming that it could just be an out and out lie, given the source, it would seem a risky move given that the truth is likely to eventually come out (and I very much suspect that the truth is that Obama refused to help our guys.)

Then I realized there is one way the statement could be construed as true, but Obama still refused help. It was the same way Kennedy treated the message from the Soviets during the Cuban Missile Crisis, i.e., pretend he never saw it.

Or, put another way, if he got the request for help but just ignored it, it would be accurate to say that “Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi.” Denial, in military terms, is a direct response, as in “Your request is denied.” That denial would be logged somewhere as an official response. But ignoring a request is a different story. Not an official denial; not an official approval; not an official anything, not even an “I’ll take it under advisement.”

A reasonable analysis, given that it concerns a person famous for voting “present” more than any other legislator???

I still haven’t read where the idea came from to Obama/Hillary/Carney/Rice that the video was responsible. If this whole thing was a set-up (the Stevens/Blind Sheikh swap), then maybe they planted the video themselves ahead of time as an excuse if things didn’t go to plan. If not, who told them all that this video was responsible?

Nope, first he loses the Election in a Landslide.

The he is Impeached in early January after the new REPUBLICAN House and REPUBLICAN Senate are sworn in.

That would be sweeter than the taste of Liberal Tears on Election night at 10PM Eastern.

I will continue to hold out hope that a majority of American Voters finally wake up to the reality of their responsibility in saving the Republic.

Indeed... Mittens have a “little huddle” with the Won after the election.” AND I agree, this IS much bigger than we think.

There WAS gunrunning going on - that was Steven's job, I think and he was lured to Benghazi for meetings with the Turkey rep and it gets worse from there. XNavy Seal Tyrone Woods did what all Navy Seals do - protect his fellow man. HE was denied help, He disobeyed orders from ?? whom - Patreaus? Sickening.

Everyone needs to watch Judge Jeanine's shows especially tonight 27th. Amazing guests, including Woods family. This is treason, Valerie Jarrett should be tossed out.

BTW.... good old Harry Reid's travel security detail in Vegas during that accident was FAR MORE SECURITY than was allowed for Stevens. What say you?

Whose side is he on? McCain was NOT a hero. He collaborated with the enemy. Ty Woods is a REAL hero. May God bless Ty and his family and the others lost and those that mourn them.

This is a national DISGRACE. Obama is an ABOMINATION! Obama is a TRAITOR. A COWARD. A piece of $HIT!

Let me paraphrase Joe Biden: “Mr. Obama, you must have balls the size of raisins.”

Red Badger, ALL

You wrote..."If this is true, it is treason...."

I AGREE with You 100%, as I came to the same conclusion...Ambassador Stevens was Intentionally HIT!

My Question is....WHY?!

What did he know or stumble upon?

I figure that IT had to be something so Incriminating that IT would Bring Snarky-Barky...DOWN and Fast!

Putting Severe Damage on or a Full Stop to End the DemonRats Bid for Re-Election.

I hope that Snarky-Barky and All of His Accomplices are thoroughly Investigated, Indicted For: Treason, Deriliction of Duty, Obstruction of Justice, MURDER and a Whole Lot of other Federal Offenses...If Not Hung For TREASON...He and his Minions Ought NEVER see the Light of Day...Except from their Federal Prison Jail CELLS!

The Whole Lot of Them Are: REPREHENSIBLE!

My PRAYERS are with all of the Families who are grieving the Great Loss of our Innocent, BRAVE Americans:

Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Navy Seals: Tyrone Woods, Glenn Dougherty and Communications Agent: Sean Smith.

May God Bless Them So They Can Rest In Peace and may The Whole TRUTH Come Out So That Their Families and ALL of US who Really Care about them can Receive JUSTICE and Some Closure.
