Someone´s Wrong: CIA and State Dept.
Accounts of Benghazi Contradict Gen.
Dempsey’s Explanation for Why
DOD Sent No Help

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/4/2013 2:04:37 PM

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is telling a different story about Benghazi than the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency. If the story Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, is telling is correct, then the story the State Department Accountability Review Board (ARB) and the Central Intelligence Agency have told is not. If the story the State Department and the CIA have told is correct, than Gen. Dempsey is telling an inaccurate story to explain why the Defense Department sent no help to the State Department and CIA personnel

And you think it´s bad now. What until Kerry gets involved and Hagel is confirmed. When they are dictated by incompetent idiots in the White House who have no idea what they are doing the results are going to be disastrous for this country.

What I want to know, and NO ONE has asked, why was the Commander of AFRICOM relieved of his command minutes after he responded in a positive way to the request for support from Benghazi?

And before our current POTUS, there was always a carrier group and a Marine Amphibious Ready Group, with a special operations capable Battalion in the Mediterranian Sea. Those days are gone, for now.

Guys, there is only one conclusion that fits the data. The Obama administration wanted our Ambassador to be kidnapped - alive - so that his freedom could be exchanged for that of the Blind Sheik, whom Obama wanted to free but needed cover for such an act.

Why else would the attackers have been happy to find him alive, and hauled him away alive rather than killing him on the spot? Why else would security have been moved away and/or been ordered to stand down? Why else would they have denied assistance?

This has the M.O. of the Fast/Furious operation; an incompetently implemented bad idea.

A couple of brave Sons of America refused to ´Stand Down´ and made the Jihadis think they had been tricked about the ease of the mission and so they killed the Ambassador.

Was the ´video´ excuse weak and transparent and panicky ??

Oh yes and so.....down the memory hole it all goes.

The ambassador died from smoke inhalation, not from gunshot wounds.
So one could argue that it was sort of an accidental death, if there really was a scheme to swap the blind sheik for the ambassador.

Three hours to charter a plane and then three hours to get Libyan permission and transportation to gp to the scene? This is nuts.

How convenient that Panetta and Dempsey were already at the white house to meet with Obama while the attack took place. Were they there to monitor a planned operation and to make sure there was no interference with its running by those outside the loop, like AFRICOM? AFRICOM sent a drone to watch. Oops! When Dempsey found that out he sacked the AFRICOM commander. Sounds almost like a DOD operation was being run against CIA.

Let´s connect another dot: Last month CENTCOM commander General Mattis barred Kam Air from military contracts in Afghanistan for smuggling bulk amounts of opium OUT of Afghanistan. Mattis was immediately fired from CENTCOM. On the wires today, Kam Air has been reinstated.

Was something more than "weapons" involved in Benghazi? Weapons get shipped from Libya to Turkey, but what is on the planes on their way IN to libya? Google "libya drug trafficking." Uh oh!

I too want to hear from those who were there and who and how they got out. Why did the "CIA security" components leave without taking the two Seals?

Why were the Seals unarmed while at the Consulate. They had no weapons when they left the Consulate compound and headed for he CIA compound, but picked them up along the road. If they only had a 20 minute fight, the did some massive devastation during that time, killing more than 80 insurgents. Even the enemy was appalled at the amount of damage only two men were able to inflict on their forces before they "lit up" the enemy exposing their position allowing a rocket to take them out.

Panetta infuriated me on Face the Nation(?)when he said, "this wasn´t a 911 call when you get there in minutes." What he didn´t say was "all we had was seven hours." These nitwits all the way up to the WH are despicable.

Please re-read #3, for he get´s to the crux of the issue and pulls the covers off Panetta and Dempsey. Dempsey speaks to the nearest armed assets of AFRICOM being in Djibouti...what he does not detail is what if any carrier group was in or transiting the Med or Red Sea during this terror attack, which by definition involves aircraft up to protect the group, which could have be ordered into an offensive mode. What assets were available at US air installation in Italy and Turkey?

It boils my blood that any security personnel were pulled from Tripoli to help in Benghazi cuz they had reports Tripoli was being targeted...Why weren´t the Marines immediately dispatched to Tripoli AND Benghazi, and why wasn´t Benghazi rockin with multiple supersonic fly overs even as armed aircraft was deployed!?!

There are two things wrong with different statements made by the White House and the CIA, State Department et al. The first why Hillary was NOT asked the reason for changing the Benghazi attack to a spontaneous rabble rousing attack generated by the anti Muslim video.Even the Libyan Head of Government stated publically that it was an affilate of Al Quada. Obama a week or so before Benghazi had boasted about killing OBL.Presidential vote coming up Barry needed extra leverage.Al Quada battled on and off for 5 to 6 hours determined to kill the US ambassador and other consulate personnel.It was reorted that the Benghazi attacks were being watched by the WH and heads of other departments. The Second question to ask Hillary who gave the order or command NOT to assist the consulate defenders.The lap dog Panetta did announce the next day that planes and armed personnel etc were too far away. What absolute rubbish . Help certainly would have MADE A DIFFERENCE Hillary.A few low flying F16´s would have nade a big difference. These jets stationed at Sicily 15 to 25 minutes away.The Ambassaor and personnel could have been saved. Most other countries would have issued a court martial,.

Number 8 hits the nail on the head. Dempsey is the typical kind of general officer today who lacks courage to speak truth to power. He´s nothing more than a yes man suited out to look like a NYC hotel doorman. He will kiss up to the administration and then magically will retire, let´s say sometime around 2015. Thank you for your service to our nation General Dempsey. You are the perfect role model for the next generation of a--kissing officers.

Sorry, but left AFRICOM several months before Benghazi and retired officially in Nov. He was demoted to three star for misuse of funds in previous year.

#31, you have the players mixed up...4-star General Ward was the first commander of AFRICOM until March 2011 when he was prevented from going into retirement and was reverted to a 2-star general while some trumped up charges were being reviewed. I contend he irritated the Obama crowd in two ways, first by successfully ending the hybrid structure of having a state dept career person as depty combantant commander, and second, for objecting to the lead from behind planning guidelines for Libya. Ward was replaced by Gen Ham, he of don´t ask don´t tell committee co-chairing fame. It was Ham who executed the Libya lead from behind strategy but must have had enough by the time Benghazi occurred. Gen. Ham is commander #1 is referring to...

What is sickening is that our congressional inquiry allowed Hillary to get away with murder. The praise slobbered on her for nothing by her fellow rats was disgusting..as was her successful ploy to run out the clock and start screaming when it started to get a little too warm in her hot seat.

Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said. The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits,

Stephen Colbert will soon be the first openly partisan comic with a late night show on network television. It´s just one reason why today´s news that the liberal host of The Colbert Report will take over for David Letterman on The Late Show smacks of culture, not show business pragmatism.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged
