Lack of strike force impeded
Benghazi response

Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/28/2012 11:07:53 PM

As U.S. Africa Command waited for any order to rescue Americans on Sept. 11 at the besieged consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, it was missing a key unit that the Pentagon gives every regional four-star commander — an emergency strike force. The new command’s lack of such a unit is another piece in the unfolding Benghazi timeline that shows an overriding theme: As radical Islamic extremism swelled in the chaotic coastal city, U.S. security assets in Libya diminished. From the State Department’s denial

'As it turns out, some special operations troops, likely from U.S. European Command, were moved to a naval air station at Sigonella, Sicily, but were never ordered to go farther.'' - article. The attack went on for 7 hours after having been telegraphed for months. NO excuses for not getting some kind of SO force there in time to have some effect.

Back up the bushere! We have had embassies and consulates in North Africa for decades and have been in the embassy protection business for hundreds of years. We had enough military assets in the area to provide some cover for those Americans, only we didn't have the political will to give the order. This is a total failure of character from the White House to the commanders in the area. Just disgraceful!

Drip,drip,drip.

I think this was not a movie critics uprising. It was an al-Qaida operation triggered by a message from Aiman al-Zawahiri of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hillary removed forces that had asked to remain 60 days more. Hussein and Panetta cowardly let Navy Seals Woods and Doherty die for electoral purposes - not admitting al-Qaida is not on its heels. So they concocted the lie of a spontaneous uprising despite having seen the attack on direct TV for hours. Hussein referred to the Innocence of Islam video six times on September 25 in the United Nations General Assembly, no less, Barry Hussein Obama lied to US and to the entire world to help his re-election. And soon his October Surprise attack to some Camel bystander or aspirin factory is coming.

We need to head Hussein off before he wags the dog.

Why were General Ham and Admiral G. Fired by Panetta? Why did Hillary lie with the bodies of her dead lying in front of her? Do you think our country is safe in the hands of this Acorn Communist Organizer?

General Petraeus has washed his hands. General Dempsey is in it at least as deep as Panetta.

We have top military commanders who were assigned the all important task of setting up th obama homosexual dating service. Everything else was secondary.

And as for the muslims, well, hussein obama said, in The Audacity of Hope, when it comes to the muslims, I will stand with them.

I call BS.

A caller to RUSH said he had previously been stationed in a AfriCom command center and extremis forces were available. They may not have been "assigned" to Gen Ham; but were on the call list.

Someone in AfriCom was manning the ship. They knew what was happening.

Long story; but sound like more cover up.

I read new information elsewhere that there were 2 warehouses here also, and it is assumed they were looted.
.... Whew! This is beginning to smell like a set-up.



And still this man continues to 'rule' from his Marxist perch.

You know, The world has this idea of what Americans do when our people are at risk. We are the first on site of an international catastrophe. At times of turmoil here at home when dangerous situations arise, we move heaven and earth to rescue and help. It happens time and time again because it is who we are. More than that, our military is known for never leaving any man behind. Without thought to their own safety, our Soldiers commit heroic acts to ensure that their fellow men and women are rescued.

Although I do not have all the facts in the Banghazi situation, I can't for the life of me wrap my brain around the fact that this President and his administration did nothing for seven hours when our people were under direct attack by blood thirsty barbarians who want nothing more than to kill us. Then to find out our Ambassador and the small security team stationed there repeatedly requested more security for months prior to this attack and were denied is beyond belief. Obama and his cronies have committed acts that have trampled our Constitution, but that all pales in comparison to this dereliction of duty by the CIC, SECDEF, and Secretary of State. What we are seeing played out on the world stage is total incompetence brought on by political expediency and Obama must be held accountable. He is a disgrace to the office of the Presidency of the United States of America.

Obama wanted that video to be blamed so badly he repeated over and over the video was the cause and the US government had nothing to do with it. The video maker was arrested and will be held until after the election. As far as I know, there has been no communication with the video maker, no questions asked of him. That just seems strange to me.

The Washington Times tries to identify a middle path. They cover parts of the story and float some new excuses that regular assets weren't available. If the full story breaks out they won't look like they were totally in the President's pocket.

One thing to keep in mind is that the only way Qaddafi's forces were dispersed was by our air power. At some point they will regroup. I've always suspected them in this attack.

I wish some posters would stop trying to embellish this sad tale with unneeded exaggerations. It is not necessary, it is plenty bad already without trying to make it worse with.

The most common exaggeration is that 2 Navy Seals were killed. Not true. While both of these brave men died American heroes, neither of them were Seals. They were ex-Seals and no longer even in the military. When they died they were working as mercenaries for a private company. When it hit the fan, their Seal training enabled two of them to hold off hundreds of crazed muslims for hours.

I am not denigrating these brave men in any way, I just don't want to help the libs. The libs will seize on something like this and use it to dismiss the whole thing as nothing but a right-wing rant.

So they had the asset (Drone) to send to watch the Embassy burn and four Americans die but no additional resources to send? Kinda curious what type of Drone was it? Could it be armed? Was it armed? At this point in the game I wouldn't be surprised if it was.

This is no right wing rant. Not even close. These people were left without help and they died because someone in charge decided not to help them. That someone was the POTUS. Simple, sickening story and it's short.

Regardless of his birth certificate, Obama is not an American. He was not raised in America or by Americans (his mother and her parents were American in name only, they were Communists), has no history as an American and cares nothing about American history. He feels no allegience or loyalty to America and has no clue what the American spirit or will is. The result it a man who cares nothing about Americans other then their vote potential.

I don't think it's ranting to call the ex-Seals Seals; everyone understands that they were former Seals, but it's a shorthand way of describing them. But also, seems to me ex-Seals are like ex-Marines, no "ex" about it; you're one for life.

One has to wonder how on earth this incompetant narcissistic person in the WH is Allowed Permitted to control who is to die or not die. This idiot was adamamant that the Benghazi murder of Consulate US Personel were not to be helped, Remember Obama was shooting off his mouth to the world a week or so before Benghazi that it was ME ME that had killed OSAMA and other El Quada top brass. This El Quada Benghazi afilliate were hopping mad at Obama and on the 19 th sept they planned and executed the killing and destruction of our Consulate. They did not pick the week before or the week after it was on the day OSAMA murdered 3000 innocemt people in the USA perished injured or burnt to death. To cover his OSAMA death boasting he had to insure that Libya was tranquil and no El Quada .Obama pertetuated a lie that the spontaneous mob was the result of the anti Muslim video. Obama over a week was still trying to claim that consulate burning and deaths was due to the video.Fighter jets could have been ordered from Sigonella Sicily within 15 mins flight time their presence would have deterrred the attackers to back off the Consulate, Slower transports with shock troops marines or green beret would then be lowered into the Consulate compound. Again how can this individual be allowed to wait and see in real time the certain deaths of these heroes. As a father of one of them said better to die as a heroe than live as a coward.Ex Navy myself OBAMA SHOULD BE COURT MARTIALED.

Once a Seal always a Seal. They like other special Forces operatives are among the most dangerous men on earth. Obama has methodically
set them up for elimination at every turn since he rushed to declare he got Bin Laden.
Why?
We can presume he has made a deal to leave them in no win situations to appease the muslims who vowed to take his head. Mr. Woods is correct about cowards and Obe is one.

#24 nailed it. In life you seldom have enough information. In war it is even less frequent.

Did the enemy, those attacking the consulate wait for enough information? I understand dozens of them died. Had they thought it over they would have gone home without a fight.

The firefighters didn't look up and say those buildings might fall upon us. We can't be sure.

In this presidential election, Americans will show it's OK to NOT vote for a black incumbent because he's proved he's a fraud, an anti-American and a puppet, dancing at the end of strings being jerked by George Soros and other rabid anti-Americans!

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Washington Post, by Wesley Lowery    Original Article

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
