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.

Just one word....GO! He opted out, why?

My guess: Valerie Jarrett.

The President appears to do what she tells him to do. And she was said to be exceedingly risk averse, refusing to authorize the Osama bin Laden mission.

It would figure that she might imagine a replay of Carter's Desert One SNAFU.

If I was Panetta, Obama, Hillary etc I would be very concerned about “not having enough information” about a possible real threat, that of some US Seals going rogue back in the USA...there are limits to lies and treason from those we allowed to govern us, and methinks we have passed them.

Congress better get off their a$$es and do their jobs and the mainstream media better do likewise or the list of traitors might grow exponentially.

Anyone remember the DC/Beltway snipers?

This is really bad. It is unfortunate that those who haven’t decided on this election won’t hear much about this, at least in time for Nov 6.

I wish all these sources would start going public! That is going to be the only way that Obama’s lap dog media will be forced to cover this.

Yes! Some brave soul, will have to put his honor, his duty, and his country ahead of his promotion and pension, and go public.

That man, (or woman) can also do directly to US Rep. Issa or Senator UGH McCain, or another US Senator more trustworthy with clout, like DeMint, although McCain is furious.

I'm not holding out much hope. So much time has already passed.

One of the pleasant developments I've seen in recent weeks is that I'm getting the sense that more and more people simply don't give a sh!t one way or another when it comes to obeying orders or even acknowledging the legitimacy of their chain of command.

Look what happened to those two CIA personnel who lost their lives in Benghazi. They violated direct orders to "stand down" and went to help their fellow Americans who were under assault at the U.S. consulate.

You know why those American soldiers were all forced to turn in their weapons when Leon Panetta visited that military base in Afghanistan? It's because this administration knows damn well that an open insurrection in the ranks of the U.S. military is not such an outlandish possibility.

Someone said (Rush caller?) these operations are always 50/50. Risk of political fallout.

Others have suggested the Syrian fast and furious Stevens was running blew up. He was set up. Conspiracy. Seems a stretch.

Political call. Don’t send in troops and be seen to fail. Lie and blame the video. Put it in the context of the Cairo Embassy earlier that day and blame the filmmaker.

Horrible.

He saw it
He knew it
...and did nothing !

Wasn’t it about the same time that Zero said that “Romney would shoot and then aim “ ?
The 11 days of lies by the “O” team was to develope a CYA story
When no story could be developed they started the deny , deny , stall game ~ sound familiar ?
like , as in “ Fast and Furious “ ?
At least this time, no request for “EXECUTIVE PRIVILEDGE” because not only was it on his watch , but he saw it, he knew it , and he turned a deaf ear
................................. and went to sleep !!

The “Sleeper-in-Chief “ is NOT A LEADER !

Although Petraus only said “no one at CIA was responsible” for failure to support at Bengahzi, it means either it was the WhiteyHut or hitlery.

Before hiltery takes what has grown into a massive and fatal hit, she could resign “in protest” thus insuring nobama is firmly under the bus just at the worst possible time. She will claim she did it (resign) for the good of the Country.

All their pettiness and incompetence has resulted in it coming down to her or them.

The black vote on the dem plantation maybe be ripped, but she will have no choice.

And never let it be forgotten that these two killed 60 terrorists before they were themselves killed.

Just had dinner with an old NYC friend...she voted for Barry in ‘08, even though I tried pleading with her, so I was hesitant to bring up the election. After some wine I said—I hope you’re voting for Mitt. She went ballistic about Libya and what she just learned on the news and about how we wouldn’t have a country if Barry had four more years. She added that even her parents were disgusted with him and voting for Mitt. I asked where she learned about this—Greek TV. There is hope, my FRiends. :)

I was pondering that very thing this evening. If I would be Mitt Romney, after victory was declared and I was the President-elect, I would have a little huddle with Obunga and tell him something along these lines:

“Let me give you a fair warning, Mr. Obunga. When I have been inaugerated, my new Attorney General, my Republican House and my Republican Senate and I are going to scrutinize your every moment between now and Inaugeration Day.

Any underhanded, suspicious or unconstitutional actions by you will receive every legal penalty available to the enth degree. Pull any funny crap and we’ll nail you to the tree.

You and I both know you’re an illegal alien imposter. So if you piss me off, I’ll make sure you are unmasked before the world, and every legislative item passed and every EO signed by you will be declared null and void. After that will come prosecution and incarceration; for you and your accomplices.

So my advice to you would be to go play golf or spend time in a bath house until January 20th, and then take your pension, go to the home you’ve already bought in Hawaii, and STFU! You, Pelosi and everyone else who vouched for your eligibility to be POTUS in 2008 are on VERY thin ice!

He can’t do jack if he loses and the military would take him out of the White House on Jan. 20, 2013, because he is nothing as soon as his successor takes the oath.

MUST watch the re run of Judge Jennine Pirro tonight if possible. IT WAS ON FIRE. Re-run at 11:00p.m Central, Fox news.

COL. HUNT, and others I can't remember. Ty Woods father and siblings, Ann Coulter & Pat Caddell.

Jennine was as furious as we are, Col Hunt called Obama a Coward. Pat Caddell nearly in tears at how the MSN's are handling this.

Go set your recorders, DON'T MISS THIS.

I don't think Obama supporters can, and that definitely includes the MSM whose minimal coverage proves it. But just imagine the media's zeal if this had been committed by a Republican.

He would of gotten away with it if it wasn’t for the meddling ex-seals.

The compound would of been over-run, ambassador dead. All because of a protest over a video.

But those damn ex-seals had to save the day. Why were they told to stand down multiple times? They were not part of the plan.

I think you are right on the mark, Arrest him. He is just to dangerous to command one more day, our troops are at Great Peril.

This would call for MUTINY aboard a ship., Then gather up all the MSN reporters, etc. and arrest them for treason as well. Failure to inform/false advertising, would be the charge. Many a company has been SUED for just those charges.

As red hot with anger at Bath-House Barry as we all are, think of Woods’ parents and the parents of the other heroes.

Their grief must be unimaginable at the thought that their wonderful boys were at once heroes AND sacrifices.

America salutes those brave men.
America will spit on Barry in November and those too stupid to vet him in 2008.
