Skip to comments.Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: My sources tell me Obama was in the room watching Benghazi attack
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’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???
Obama voters have no idea what Bengahzi is. Have never heard of it.
I suggest this video go viral. Everyone post it to your facebooks and email it to others to pass on. Unfortunately, many have already voted. No wonder zero is in favor of early voting. What a POS this man is. (I use the word man loosely).
Its time for the GOP o stop being wusses...and Impeach Obama. No more chickening out like on Obama Eligibility and fast and Furious...this Kenyan Muslim needs to be impeached...and I will not forget the GOPers who refuse to do so
Disgusting and treasonous what happened in Libya
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?
I would think that he is making Mitt mad enough to do these things. Mitt needs to go after him for what he has done. It will stop others from doing the same.
Inundate drudge with this video link until he posts it.
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.
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?
But there was a live feed in the situation room.
Political decision all the way. “What if we go in and fail?”
Plus, Obama’s first instinct is to ... do nothing. Remember word that it was 2-3 attempts to get Obama to go after OBL and they had to navigate around Valerie Jarrett?
You are correct. The days of needing to depend on the MSM to do the right thing are over. We are the media now, “We are Breitbart.” Wait until they finally truly realize how over they are.
Totally agree. There are millions of us across the country that feel the same way.
Did you see Pat Cadell tonight on Judge Jeanine show? He was outraged and I swear, nearly in tears of shame and embarrassment for this great nation.
Like Kennedy, he abandoned the very people he promised to protect.
Forget whatever John McShame says. Just the other day I saw him say that they had no contingency plans in place so they could not have performed a rescue.
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.
YES! TGO would go for that!
Col. Hunt is on FNC right now.
This alone will cause a landslide victory for Romney.
