 Dozens of CIA ops on ground during Benghazi attack...
GOP Rep: Obama admin hiding survivors, changing their names...

The Washington Examiner and Floyd Brown report, “It’s even worse than we previously thought. A retired four-star admiral is now claiming that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America’s enemies to stage a bogus attack and the kidnapping of an American ambassador so he could “negotiate” the release of a “hostage” and bolster his mediocre approval ratings just prior to the election?

The Washington Examiner, quoting retired Four-Star Admiral James Lyons, writes: “the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi… was the result of a bungled abduction attempt…. the first stage of an international prisoner exchange… that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’…”

But something went horribly wrong with Obama’s “October Surprise.” Although the Obama Administration intentionally gutted security at the consulate prior to the staged kidnapping, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed direct orders to stand down, saved American lives, single-handedly killed scores of attackers…and…”
     ***********************************************************************************************

At 9:40 pm on the night of September 11, the Consulate was attacked by heavily armed terrorists. A security agent at the Benghazi compound heard “loud noises” coming from the front gate and “gunfire and an explosion.” The camera on the main gate recorded a large group of armed men, pouring into the Consulate compound. An alarm went out and Washington was alerted.

Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who had been on an assignment in Benghazi and was at the CIA annex about a mile from the Consulate, heard the gunfire and requested permission to go to their aid. The request was summarily rejected and Woods was told to “stand down”.

Meanwhile, in Washington, a crisis meeting was rapidly convened in the White House. Video was being transmitted from both the Consulate and the drones overhead as the situation unfolded, so the assembled senior personnel were receiving real-time intelligence as the night progressed. Among those in attendance, according to my source, were Leon Panetta (Secretary of Defense), General Martin Dempsey (Head, Joint Chiefs of Staff0, Valerie Jarrett (Senior Advisor to the President), Eric Holder (Attorney General, DOJ), James Clapper (Director, National Intelligence) and David Petraeus (Director, CIA) and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The President was reported to have attended by telephone.

At 10:30, as the reports were coming in and the situation at the Consulate was clearly deteriorating rapidly, Woods again requested military support and again was rebuffed and told to stand down. By this time the President, the Secretary of Defense, and the Secretary of State had all been advised of the situation. Two drones, flying above the compound, were continuing to send back live videos of the attacks, while Ambassador Chris Stevens, trapped in the so-called safety area of the Consulate, was suffocating from the heavy fumes from diesel fuel-fed flames that were engulfing the building.

Woods ignored the second order to stand down and, taking several other men with him, drove to the Consulate which was now in flames. They first searched for Ambassador Stevens, but could not find him. They then evacuated those remaining at the consulate, and also removed the body of Sean Smith, who had been with the Ambassador and was killed in the initial attack. They could not find Stevens and had to give up the search when it became too dangerous to remain.

They returned to the Annex at about midnight. On the way, their car was attacked, and although their tires were blown out and they ended up driving on the metal rims of their wheels, they made it back to the relative safety of the Annex. But at midnight, the Annex itself came under attack, and a third desperate call was made for air support. He specifically requested back-up support from an AC 130 Specter Gunship, commonly used by US Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground when they are involved in intense firefights. According to our sources, the request was denied by Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Woods then went up to the roof of the Annex, armed with a machine gun. He was killed by a mortar shell, as he fired off his final rounds at the terrorists.

On October 25, as the amount of verified information about what really happened began to become significant, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta attributed the denials as necessary because, he said, the military leaders did not have adequate intelligence information. “We felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation” with so little “real-time information about what’s taking place.”

What would it have taken to end the fire fight before four Americans were murdered that night? Lt. General Thomas McInerny, in a FoxNews interview on October 25th, said that even two F-16s flying low over the city of Benghazi would have been enough to scare the attackers into flight and could have saved American lives that night at little risk to themselves. (FoxNews has been a leader in the media in doggedly going after the truth about what happened in Benghazi. Read more here.

Moreover, Woods had put laser beads on the terrorists and they could have been identified by incoming air support, but none ever came.

What Does the White House Say?

The White House is conspicuously silent on nearly everything connected to Benghazi, but the questions remain.

Prior to September 11, why were so many requests for heightened security turned down, despite the clearly deteriorating security situation? (Two recent attacks on the Consulate itself, and summer attacks on the Red Cross and the British Ambassador were on record. The British and the red Cross had left Benghazi, and the America flag was the only foreign delegation flag left flying in the city.)

Why, upon refusing to continue providing security for the Consulate, did the State Department hire a little known Welsh security company who subcontracted to local Libyans armed with only billy clubs and flashlights? (In fact, the ‘leader’ of this team was a former English teacher who had never handled a gun in his life!)

On the night of September 11, why were three desperate requests for military support refused out of hand, even when the life of the Ambassador was clearly at stake?

Why was not even an overflight ordered?

And following the event, why did the administration refuse to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack?

Why was the story of a spontaneous demonstration and a little known video blamed for the violence when it is now clear that everyone at the top knew what really happened? (According to e-mails acquired by one of our sources, the White House not only knew within 2 hours that this was a terrorist attack, they knew that Ansar al-Shariah had carried on the attacks.)

What Was This Really About?

The theories abound, but the most interesting, and the one that makes the most sense, given the newly uncovered information, came across my desk a week ago. I did not publish it then because I was, at the time, unable to corroborate it, although it came from an impeccable source who attributed his information to senior people in several agencies in Washington and elsewhere. At first the story seemed a bizarre explanation for what was then unexplainable – the obvious coverup of the facts of the Benghazi attacks, the apparent inability of the administration to get its story straight, and the failure of the State Department to protect the US mission in Libya. But as more and more facts continue to emerge, this story begins to be the only one that makes sense.

The story is about a plot allegedly hatched by the administration to kidnap Ambassador Stevens and then use the negotiations that would lead to his release to enhance the administration’s image in the US and make the President a hero right before the elections. Crazy, right? Except that as the pieces of the story continue to come out, the pieces seem to fit together and the explanation begins to make sense.

It explains, for example, why the President was so relaxed during the attacks and seemed so sure of the outcome that it was reported that he went to bed early that night.

It explains why the requests for support were turned down, thinking that any interference could spoil the plot. It explains why the administration had to scramble afterward to find a story that could explain the attacks in such a way as to distance themselves from the story.

It explains why there was such a rush to arrest the hapless maker of a low budget, little seen video which insults Mohammed. (He is still languishing in jail, more a political prisoner than an unwitting inspiration to global jihad.)

It explains why this story was maintained by a host of senior administration officials, who paraded the story around for nearly two weeks, even though it is clear that they knew the truth within two hours of the beginning of the assault of the Consulate.

The only thing surprising about this is how long it has taken to work its way into the MSM. I'm pretty sure I posted regarding this late last year or earlier this year.
Everyone in the top leadership is complicit, from Obama on down, and certainly including Clinton. Her her career is over. Obama will likely not make it to the end of this term. America deserves better than this bunch of hoodlums, running the most crime-ridden government we have ever seen in our country. They belong in prison for betraying the country.

Hopefully the investigation will pick up some heat, Congress has to take back its authority and start steamrolling the exec branch to get these witnesses to testify. Enough of this war on whistleblowers Obama has launched in an effort to cover up his malfeasance. Nothing but a punk and a bully.

OMG!  Predictions again?  Has there ever been a prediction from the Right that came true?  I can't recall even one.  Prison?  First Administration with no convictions anywhere in the Executive branch.  Cleanest ever.

How come the desperate tone tonight?  What did I miss?  What's that, Obama's a punk and a bully?  Riveting analysis for sure.

No convictions?  Of course not with Holder the top cop.  What a joke of a statement.  This is the dirtiest administration I've ever seen.

masare - Thank you very much.  I appreciate the kind words.  As I've said before, whether it be a politician or ideology I support, my kid's softball coach, a friend, or a family member, I have trouble sitting idly by allowing a group of individuals to take one shot after another at them, while going completely unchallenged.  Please know there are good members among us who respect my desire/need to put out an alternative perspective just as there are members who despise the fact I continue to do so.  I suppose this is to be expected.

Now prepare for the next five or six days though as I depart to share a 40th anniversary with the little lady and will likely leave the criticisms alone for the time being.  Hopefully, it won't all come crashing down while I'm gone.

PS:  Happy Birthday Mr. President

Yeah while you are gone I will be hoping and praying you come back with some new talking points.  Your tired old stuff needs some refreshing.  Maybe while you are gone you can find all the latest new slants, spin and talking points that jay carney, chris matthews and valerie jarrett have to offer. 

I can't wait, bon voyage, toodles

A 4 star Admiral states that the Benghazi attack was a planned event by the administration. I wonder if that Admiral will be invited to testify before congress?

Woody, I've been saying there are Americans up to their ears involved in the Benghazi attack....Those dominoes will stay forever hushed....Obama shut Romney up just with a look in the last debate.....That was a scared look on Romney's face....And, no more mention of Benghazi from Romney during the debate, or afterward....People will disappear if they even think about talking....I do want to see the pressure kept up, but, don't expect the murders to be exposed...

John King had a piece on CNN tonight that (finally) began asking questions about what really happened before, during, and after the terrorist attack. I laughed thinking about all the CNN viewers wondering why they didn't know anything about this before. Lol.

Btw, keep an eye on Jake Tapper. He aired a report on CNN on Benghazi last week, and a day later there was a "sudden terrorist threat" that sent our American diplomats running for cover. And coincidentally (I'm sure) diverted media attention from Tapper's report. Hearing that Tapper isn't done though, so there is hope this will continue to garner increased attention, deservedly so, now that the CIA gun-running operation is being exposed.

Here is King, and of course they get digs in at Republicans along the way, that's just CNN

Here is the Tapper story, with focus on efforts to keep CIA agents from testifying before Congress, and the gun-running.

Kings is a puff piece compared to Tappers.

Now we know why Rand Paul asked Hillary under oath if she was aware of any gun running. At the time everyone that that was an off the wall question. Hillary acted like she had no clue what he was talking about. One thing the Clintons are good at...... lying with a straight face. Almost as good at it as Obama.

Charles Krauthammer let loose on President Obama tonight on The O’Reilly Factor:

I think there is a bigger story here that will in time come out. The biggest scandal of all, the biggest question is what was the president doing in those eight hours. He had a routine meeting at five o’clock. He never after during the eight hours when our guys have their lives in danger, he never called the Secretary of Defense, he never calls the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, he never called the CIA Director, Who does he call? But five hours in he calls the Secretary of State. And after the phone call she releases a statement essentially about the video and how we denounce any intolerance. It looks as if the only phone call is to construct a cover story at a time when the last two Americans who died were still alive and fighting for their lives. There’s the scandal and that has to be uncovered.”

Remember the four mid-level State Dept scapegoats that Clinton put on administrative leave for their role in Benghazi?

Under Kerry, all four have been cleared of wrongdoing and can return to their jobs.

Leaving exactly zero persons accountable for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, on the Obama / Clinton watch.

Americans looking for accountability in their government would do well to steer far clear Clinton in 2016.

Dewey - does it matter to you that a year after the murder of four Americans in our Embassy, that not one person who should have been in a position to prevent this tragedy has been held to account?  Does it bother you that Obama has no interest in finding out what happened?  Does it bother you that Hillary doesn't think it matters what happened?  Does it bother you that not one Democrat cares?

Report on Benghazi

Despite all the criticism, the board found no U.S. government employee had engaged in misconduct or ignored responsibilities and did not recommend any individual be disciplined.


Actual report on Benghazi

I can't recall anyone being disciplined for the 9/11 attacks either.  Too bad you find a need to pin this tragedy directly on somebody.  I think it's an Obama thing.  Wolf, wolf, wolf.

FINDINGS AND DISCUSSION
1.
The attacks in Benghazi were security related, resulting in the deaths of four U.S.
personnel after terrorists attacked two separate U.S. government facilities–the Special Mission compound (SMC) and the Annex.
Identification of the perpetrators and their motivations are the subject of an
ongoing FBI criminal investigation. The Board concluded that no protest took place before the Special Mission and Annex attacks, which were unanticipated in their scale and intensity.
ADEQUACY OF SECURITY SYSTEMS AND PROCEDURES PRIOR TO SEPTEMBER11,2012
2.
Systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.



Who was in charge here?  Hillary with the bloody pantsuits failed miserably at her first REAL job
