A devastating new report from sources on the ground in Benghazi has confirmed that the Obama administration not only knew that a terrorist attack was underway at the Consulate, but that they explicitly and repeatedly told security forces at the nearby CIA, and other military support, to stand down when Ambassador Chris Stevens’ team begged for help…
Now, we are learning that a “rogue” general, Africom commanding officer U.S. General Carter Ham, was arrested by his second in command (and consequently relieved of duty) for activating special forces teams within minutes of learning the Consulate was under attack.
The Washington Times reported that on October 26, “Ambassador” posted the following RUMINT on TigerDroppings (h/t Jim Hoft):
“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into
harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some
real-time information about what’s taking place,” Panetta told
Pentagon reporters. ” And as a result of not having that kind of
information, the commander who was on the ground in that area,
Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not
put forces at risk in that situation.
The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.
General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.”
Had the Obama administration been at all concerned for saving the lives of these four Americans, including our ambassador, they could have stopped the mortar fire that eventually killed them simply by allowing an AC-130U Gunship — a powerful, nearby weapon that could have halted the destruction — to fire…
Obama and Sec. of Defense Panetta could have given Gen. Ham the green-light to save those four killed.
But they didn’t.
The Obama administration chose instead to tell Americans to stand down and let the terrorists win.
“Somebody the other day said to me, ‘This is as bad as Watergate.’ Well, nobody died in Watergate,” said Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Sunday during an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“This is either a massive cover-up or incompetence that is not acceptable … to the American people,” said McCain. Sen. McCain is absolutely right.
The fact that thirty Americans were attacked for seven hours (and four of them DIED) with no help from a well-informed Oval Office is NOT ACCEPTABLE. The failure to take responsibility is NOT ACCEPTABLE.
No one wants to even admit to failure and then commit to making sure Washington never again doles out a death sentence with orders for Americans to “stand down” against terrorists! Yet, this is not the first time Obama tried to make poor orders, like during the siege of a pirated boat, Obama tried to have the SEAL snipers “stand down” yet the commander asked if they were in imminent harm, and the answer was Affirmative, so he had the right to Order a “Fire” saving all the crew and Captain.
Never again will the highest levels of our government watch Americans die in real time while concocting a cover story to feed to the American people. House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard “Buck” McKeon (R-Calif.) has sent a letter to Obama demanding to know exactly whom he ordered to do what on Sept. 11, 2012, when the attack happened after Obama’s most recent statement in an Oct. 26 interview that he took action and issued “directives” the “minute” he found out about the attack.
Eight more Days till the Election. Will you FAST over these next few days for America and the World? Let us join together in a cry to God for Mercy and His help.
Proverbs 3: 5 – 6
These are words attributed to Solomon. We know from history that scripture revealed what God expected in a king.
“Be sure to appoint over you a king the LORD your God chooses. He must be from among your fellow Israelites. Do not place a foreigner over you, one who is not an Israelite. The king, moreover, must not acquire great numbers of horses for himself or make the people return to Egypt to get more of them, for the LORD has told you, “You are not to go back that way again.” He must not take many wives, or his heart
will be led astray. He must not accumulate large amounts of silver and gold (writing Books about his life, tj).When he takes the throne of his kingdom, he is to write for himself on a scroll a copy of this law, taken from that of the Levitical priests. It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the LORD his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees and not consider himself better than his fellow Israelites and turn from the law to the
right or to the left. Then he and his descendants will reign a long time over his
kingdom in Israel.” Deuteronomy 17:15-20 (NIV)
After reading this you have to wonder what happened to Solomon. The Bible tells us that he forgot his first love. Solomon wrote “In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” Yet he didn’t follow his own advice.
SEE INTERVIEW…What Will Hilary Clinton DO?
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered additional security for the U.S. mission in Benghazi ahead of the terrorist attack but the orders were never carried out, according to “legal counsel” to Clinton who spoke to best-selling author Ed Klein. Those same sources also say former President Bill Clinton has been “urging” his wife to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional
security at the compound in Libya , which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.
Appearing on The BlazeTV’s “Wilkow!” on Wednesday night, Klein told host Andrew Wilkow that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been having “big fights” for “two or three weeks” about the issue, according to his two sources on Clinton ‘s legal counsel. While Bill Clinton wishes his wife would “exonerate” herself by releasing the documents that show she wasn’t at fault for the tragic security failure in Libya ,
the secretary of state refuses to do so because she doesn’t want to be viewed as a traitor to the Democratic party.
SUMMARY – Obama had enough resources to send to Benghazi. He sent Chevy volts and money to our embassy in Finland for an energy station, for crying out loud! Republicans had NOTHING to do with the lack of security in Benghazi as the administration has mentioned. Money was not the issue. They could have shifted resources to that area. Not only that, but Obama could have sent special ops units stationed one hour away in Italy to save our people. He refused. The two seals that died weren’t killed until SEVEN hours after the attack started. Obama is proudly saying that he’s staying awake for 24 hours to campaign this week. Too bad he didn’t do that during the attack, but rather chose to go to bed. He should be impeached.
