Why Obama Sent No Rescue:
Benghazi Lasted ‘8 Hours’ But
Was ‘Over in ... 30 Minutes’

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/20/2012 11:41:09 PM

The chairman and the vice chairman of the State Department Accountability Review Board (ARB) that investigated the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, made dramatically different statements on Wednesday about the duration of those attacks that resulted in the deaths of four Americans. The relevant duration of the event shrunk from "almost eight hours" to "only about 20 or 30 minutes" when a reporter asked this "accountability" team why the U.S. military had not been sent to Benghazi to help that night. During his opening statement at a State Department

Comments:
As this onion continues to get its layers peeled, its more than enough to make one cry. No matter how the 0bamaNation tries to obfuscate over his and all other agency knowledge of events in real time, there should have been adequate force to protect Steven's on the ground before, during and when the firefight began. A rescue should have been attempted at the very least. Our subsequent action shows US as weak to the Muslim terrorist.

Did anybody really believe this internal investigation would tell the truth? Don´t think for a minute that Hillary didn´t scrub this thing while "recovering".

They forgot to mention this was an early April Fool´s joke.

Since their constituency is the "low information" voter, they lie with impunity. They don´t care about the voters who are engaged enough factually to understand their lies. We don´t matter since we can´t vote them out. They won.

Does anyone else get the idea that there was someone in DC on the line to the attackers telling them to go back and finish the job? Before the Seals were permitted to leave the annex, the Libyan were called to see if they could help. The security force from within Libya arrived at the airport and began to negotiate with Libyans to go to the embassy. And finally, after the initial assault on the annex, there was an attack 5 hours later. Is this a coincidence?

What wasn´t mentioned was Stevens and how he was missing for at least 4 hrs. The WH and State didn´t know where he was, whether he had been taken hostage. There was time to get help there in that amount of time.

Of the many many self-proclaimed skillsets of the President the most impressive (to himself) was his great empathy and understanding of the Muslim religion. He had a fantasy that he could build some sort of relationship with radical Islam. This attack didn´t fit the narrative so the lies started. Now is there is no path back to the truth that doesn´t land him and many of his minions in some very hot water. Lower level people at the State Dept will be offered up as a sacrifice but those with real accountability will pay no price. It is the way of Washington. Do not doubt it.

Everything about this - from the Arab Spring, to removing Qaddafi, to removal of the bodies after 9/11-#2 ... was effed up.

Four people dead in a hell hole. For no effin reason.

Everything about North Africa and the Middle East policy has been irreparably effed up.

Sorry for language implications but I can´t stand this. All of us are worthless to this administration, except for our money for their personal toys.

What about the prisoners being held in the compound for questioning? Paula Broadwell told the story in Colorado. Notice there has been no mention of those boys. This was a rescue mission to release the prisoners. O can´t have a narrative out there that says he went against his word.

My question: Whatt was so important that Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi on September 11th when we know he was begging for more security prior to that date? Makes no sense. He put himself in the most dangerous city in Lybia on the anniversary of 9/11 just for kicks?

She will no longer be Secretary of State, but maybe they could send her to jail for perjury! Wouldn´t that be special? Then impeach obama, because he, above all, is responsible.

extreme disgust and hatred : loathing

That´s a simple definition of "abomination"
as well as "Obamanation," Traitor-in-Chief´s view of America and Americans, and the reason he is free to exercise dictatorial control. Benghazi was swept under the rug because it was in PINO´s interest to do so.

This is on the back burner because they have their gun crisis which cannot be allowed to go to waste, as Rahmbo points out. But, guns were part of the Behgahzi issue. Something about guns from Libya to Syria and Ambass. Stevens, went back into a hot spot to finish up something after he had dinner with the Syrian diplomat. It remains fuzzy and will remain fuzzy as in Whitewater and all the other scandals that Clintons and Obama and the Chicago Connection running the White House control

I caught a few minutes lst night of the Dems on this committee yesterday whining abut how this event has been politicized and that we should focus on the four dead Americans. And then Juan Williams on Fox News said the same thing. But oh wasn´t the Valerie Plame politicized to the nth degree? And how died there?

This government today does not deserve the sacrifice of all of our dead warriors and diplomats buried in our national cememteries at home and overseas.

FTA: The administration apparently determined that reaching out to a Libyan militia and government that had already failed in their duty to protect American diplomats, and then spending "hours" to charter a private plane, was a more efficient way to get reinforcements to Benghazi then to deploy some of what Mullen at Wednesday´s briefing described as the "lot of forces in Europe both at sea and on land."

This is beyond incompetence. It was a deliberate order to stand down and this is the spin to cover this travesty/murder of our personal due to the inability of the "Libyan security forces to protect our embassy(?).

And don´t try pass this off as no implications directly from the White House. That order to stand down came directly from the top/VJ and the Squatter in OUR HOUSE.

According to one congressman, there are at least 30 survivors being held in ´isolation´ somewhere so they can´t be questioned. That the government can hold you like this, with no outside contract, because they have to ´cover their fannies´ is very scary.

So basically #37 you are saying that they are now political prisoners? I think you are right. That poor guy that was blamed for the video is also still in jail.

Judging from Hillary´s face back in Sept when all of the bodies came back, she knows what happened and she also knows that if anyone finds out she will be toast, too. She was greif stricken, but it was for herself. obama looked bad, too, but he seemed to have recovered more quickly.

The military people that know have been threatened with their retirement. It´s going to be hard to crack them, because that is their survial. That is not right, but there it is. It isn´t right to keep those survivors captive until it blows over. We must go after Obama and and the rest of these reprobates in government. We have to keep up the pressure until we get answers that are correct and true. If it is gunrunning then all the more reason to keep on all of Obama´s gun problems. He has more than just Benghazi.

#37, #39- sounds like the nearly 30 government kidnap victims need to be found and freed. Bound to be lots of citizens here in the states that have seen them, wherever they are - assuming they are back home here. Think of the implications - their families have to have been pressured as well to not be kicking up a fuss - unless they didn´t know where they were posted and are still receiving communications from them.

Congress should demand:

That Hillary testify before Congress under oath, so that if she lies they can charge her with perjury.

The right for a small group of (Republican) House Committee Chairmen to conduct closed-door, one-on-one interviews, under oath, of each of the survivors who were rescued from Benghazi. Force the administration to identify them and make them available – no strings attached. Grant each of them full immunity from prosecution for any crime EXCEPT perjury, which eliminates their right to plead the fifth or to have an attorney (or a representative of the administration or State Department) present during the interview.

The President claims that “the minute [he] found out what was happening”, he gave an order to “make sure that we are securing our personnel [in Benghazi] and doing whatever we need to”. Have him identify the person to whom he gave that order and the date and time at which he gave the order. Then subpoena that person to testify to Congress about what actions he took to fulfill that order.

From what I was reading online, totally by accident, something that I came upon was almost a blow by blow real time conversation between people who seemed to be watching everything unfold. I watched and read and though my memory may be of later on in the events, they kept wondering why help did not arrive. Why Stephens was not found by the others who were with him was a puzzle to me. Why it went on so long without help...I don´t know who those two men were who were back and forth, but they said more than once that there were videos from at least one drone, and at least one unknown American was talking by internet connection to someone. Oh, it was probably to those, 400 or so in various levels of command and military offices, who were also watching from the situation room or Pentagon or CIA...but they don´t really know what exactly who knew what or when or where. Sack of rocks wouldn´t believe those lies. But I am just sayin´.

Reading the transcript of the Benghazi investigation sounds like deja vu . A time frame of 30 minutes was available to send help stated the two unkown water carriers for Obama. Benghazi attack was being viewed via robots were being viewed in real time for at least anywhere beteen 5 to 8 hours. Panetta a few days later than 9/11 stated publically that they had no force available and time frame inadequate to help the belegeured defenders at Benghazi. The reason let´s point out again that Obama and his minions insisted ( Hillary Rice Panetta Adm Mullen et al)that the attackers were a mob stirred up by an anti islam movie.Al Quada was not quoted since Obama a few weeks earlier had told the world that El Quada was on the run since ´HE´ had killed OBL.Panetta and the Military elite knew that assistance was at hand at Sicily half hour by jet troop transport at most one hour.Shock troops lowered down into the Consulate Compound to aid the heroes defending the Consulate. What outright incompetance. Hillary wants to be the next prez she is not all there !

I was just thinking - why don´t we as a nation, fast the news! Too often we have considered fasting food to lose weight and become healthy. How about fasting the news, mainly the liberal news, to become healthy-minded! They have not cared for US! They have not reported "exactly" what has happened, even though I am sure they knew!

Political correctness has ruled and ruined this country.

Class warfare has brought more division, knowing we "all" want success and prosperity.

This government is "stealing" from the so-called rich to "give" to the so-called poor, who are "often" unwilling to work for their own personal needs.

We need to boycott or just stop watching/listening/caring about those who have "proved" they don´t care about US, only their liberal agenda, their own jobs.

We don´t have much power left, but we do control our TVs and buying/subscribing to our newspapers,by not turnng them on/not buying into the news they are saying/printing - selling!

We need to hit them in their pocketbook! Wages are where they are at too! I am sure Obama plans to protect them, but we could counter his play.

America is dying and we cannot sit by and allow it to happen!

Also, we need to get down on our knees, knowing God alone is able to "deliver US from evil - here and abroad!

Merry Christmas to everyone. Jesus came to set the captives free - that´s US!

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez says the 8 and a-half inch long blade was found Monday at the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport. The passenger, who has not been identified, said she made the enchilada over the weekend, and didn´t know how the knife got into the bag. She was questioned by Sonoma County Sheriff´s deputies, but then cleared to board her flight. Melendez says the TSA

A French lab has lost more than 2,000 vials containing fragments of the deadly SARS virus, which killed nearly 800 people in a 2003 epidemic across four continents. The Pasteur Institute in Paris, France announced this week that it realized it was missing the vials and contacted the country’s National Security Agency of Medicines and Health Products to conduct an investigation on April 8, according to a news release. Although the fragments are not dangerous, they do raise concerns by revealing the lab’s vulnerability, said Dr. William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville,

Cities and counties won’t be allowed to raise the minimum wage under a law signed Monday by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R). Under the new law, which passed the state legislature on party-line votes earlier this year, cities would be prohibited from raising the minimum wage above the $7.25 federal mark, and they would be prevented from requiring employers to provide sick days to their employees. Backers of the new law said differing wages in different cities would be a hardship for businesses. In a statement, Fallin said different wage laws would hurt job creation. In recent years, cities and localities across the country have unilaterally

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

An orange-black ribbon holds
a clue to eastern Ukraine´s chaos

As pro-Russia protests spread in eastern Ukraine, a strip of striped orange-and-black fabric has become as ubiquitous as the armed men in unmarked military fatigues. Its name is the Ribbon of Saint George. Imbued with history, it’s a powerful symbol in the ongoing information battle over Ukraine. For Russians it´s a mark of allegiance to the state – both the fearsome, expansionist Russian state of old and its modern successor under President Vladimir Putin. When pro-Russia rallies took place last December, seeking to rival the Maidan demonstrations in Kiev, very few ribbons were seen.

UNICEF’s new campaign, “Poo2Loo,” targets India’s public defecation problem with a series of music videos, pranks and advertisements featuring a giant feces mascot. According to the campaign, 620 million Indians are defecating in public every day. “That’s half the population dumping over 65 million kilos of poo out there every day. If this poo continues to be let loose on us, there will be no escaping the stench of life threatening infections, diseases and epidemics,” the Poo2Loo website says, while asking visitors to sign a pledge to ending public defecation. YouTube videos for the campaign feature giant, walking, talking, dancing,

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
