AC-130U Gunship was On-Scene in Benghazi,
Obama Admin Refused to Let It Fire (Updated)

PJ Media, by Bob Owens

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 10/27/2012 7:37:42 AM

If you don’t get torches-and-pitchforks irate about this, you are not an American: The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive.

Obama betrayed the heroes on the ground.
So this is why Obama has been lying, blame shifting and frantically covering up for 6 weeks.
The complicit mainstream media will attempt to make this outrage go away, but fail.

Panetta, Hillary, Carney, the 'intelligence' chief and the complicit mainstream media have all tried to divert attention from the hard reality of this Obama betrayal in Benghazi.

We need to get these scum out of the White House.

The Benghazi Bullsitter took three months to grant McChrystal's request for more troops. He delayed the Gulf oil clean up for months. He delayed the Keystone Pipeline until it died. He continues to block agreements with Congress. The guy is a worthless doorstop with hair that only knows how to be an obstruction in the way of something good for the country, so if anyone wants to know what will happen if Israel is attacked, this should give you some idea. Israel would be in cold ashes before this President would even consider sending help.

Unbelievable dereliction of duty and a case of total moral bankruptcy. If this is true, it will only take one news cycle on Fox for the Administration to start firing people as they go into full-blame mode. This October surprise was all of Obama's making.

In order to force the MSM to acknowledge this tragedy there must be a "march" on the White House.

One massive protest demanding to know the truth can not be ignored by the people.

So who might be best at putting such a protest together BEFORE the election?

The Specter Gunship in action. Keep in mind, the weapons on these planes are DEADLY ACCURATE. They could have made Sunday morning hash out of those terrorists in mere seconds. But, the obama mal-Administration thought it was best to let our people die.

The article states that the SEAL would have never used the Laser designator unless there was either an AC-130 or an armed Predator in theater.

FTA: Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on information directly from the target area.

Rep Chafitz (R-Utah) met with AFRICOM and asked him why he didn't provide support.

"Because no one asked me to."

General Patton or Admiral Halsey would have smacked the starch out of that pussyass General. Sadly, everyone over 0-6 in today's military fits that description. PC has ruined our military.

I've been saying for a long time, when obit says we can't do something, do it anyway. He knows nothing and does not rate being listened to and obeyed. I don't mean to make light of the Benghazi situation, but it will need to start happening big time, if he gets re-elected.

I believe the truth about Benghazi is far worse than what we've learned.

I've read and reread the article. (perhaps I need more coffee). But I don't see where it says the gunship was in the air over Benghazi.

Of course it should have been. Readily available, possible and should have been a routine early response.

What did I miss?

#30...If that SEAL was actively “painting” a target; something was on station to engage! And the decision to stand down goes directly to POTUS!

The seal was "painting" a target with a laser. Also from the article but paraphrased, this was not the kind of laser used in a powerpoint presentation. This laser locks into a gunship like the AC-130U. If it wasn't there and engaged he could not have "painted" it.

For Obama election day can not come soon enough. The more time between now and election day the more that will be exposed and his numbers to go down.

He should thank his lucky stars Hurricane Sandy is going to disrupt the east coast. If it weren't...I believe there would be a protest of the masses on the Washington Mall if it weren't for the weather.

All sarcasm aside, I am astounded that Barry hasn't resigned and disappeared to some remote corner of Indonesia. Has ValJar done such a good job of insulating Barry that he still doesn't know how much trouble he's in?

Those focusing on Valerie Jarrett are going for the misdirect...yes she was in the room and is dirty, but the National Security Advisor is Tom Donilon, #2 under Gen Jones until Jones left claiming Donilon has little respect for the military. FannieMae VP lobbying the Hill for years, Pres.

#13 is on to something. I understand and support the concept of the chain of command and civilian control of the military. However, it amazes and disappoints me that NO ONE below the criminal Obama in the chain of command didn't say, "Screw this" and do something to assist those brave men in Benghazi. Order the AC-130 (if it was there) to fire; order a low-level "show of force" flyby by a Navy F/A-18. SOMETHING. Panetta, Dempsey, General Ham- all moral cowards.

Come to think of it, #36 is likely spot on. Donilon is an alumnus of Warren Christopher's old law firm. He probably learned from the Master Appeaser.

But without question Jarrett had a major role in the decision.

A laser designator's beam is coded, and a weapon system is programmed with that code before release. The designators can also provide coordinates for GPS-guided weapons.

In the absence of worthwhile information, speculation abounds. So I will wonder aloud, "does the drone video show Spooky on-station?"

#26 Griffin attributed the quote to Gen Ham who assumed command of AFRICOM in March 2011 just in time to playout Zero's lead from behind strategy in Libya replacing W's/Condi's man Gen Ward who undoubtedly refused to play ball...anyone notice the quiet announcement last week re Gen HAM BEING REPLACED and a successor nominated by Zero for Senate confirmation? And re #39, as I adjust my tinfoil hat, Libya is about 1 thing, money. Ghadaffi amassed $260billion in his sovereign wealth fund just in the 5 year period following sanctions being lifted. 40% of that was undermanagement by a US investment bank...Donilon knows the money game from FannieMae and would not want to upset the new folks taking charge in Libya by shooting up Benghazi...

OK. The fact that the target was laser painted doesn't equate to an C-130U being in the sky at that time.

It does mean the operator thought one might be and certainly had a reasonable expectation that one was.

In the absence of evidence to the contrary, I suggest that we assert an AC-130U could have been in the area and should have been. We need to be precise in our statements or lose credibility.

An AC-130U gunship is a fairly rare bird that is in high demand around the world. Since the USA supposedly does not have a military presence in Libya, why would a AC-130U just happen to be flying over Benghazi on the evening of 9/11/12 as the US consulate was being attacked?

I think I read that there were two C130s in Libya and one was removed when the wise ones in D.C. decided that the place was secure and did not need further security. Then there was one left and that is the C130 that left Tripoli after the assault started, bearing several security types including Glen Doherty. At the time that Woods used the laser to pinpoint the enemy unit, he was with Doherty and they knew that a C-130 was in the area because Doherty had arrived on it.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant.

Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
