US drones were in the skies over Benghazi during last month’s fatal attack on US ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, a new report claims.Defense Department officials weighed sending troops to rescue Stevens and more than 30 other Americans whose compound was surrounded by an angry mob on Sept. 11, says the report by CBS News. But no US counterattack or rescue effort was carried out.The drone and other reconnaissance aircraft observed the final hours of the protracted, seven-hour battle at the US Consulate.

I was unaware aircraft and drones were one and the same. Unfortunately you can't fit too many rescuers inside a drone. But the headline says help was trying to get there.

All this shoddy info coming out two days before the foreign policy debate. It's smoke and mirrors.

The time to help was before the attack, when the ambassador was asking for more security.

This is most interesting..

The WH wants us to believe that they did what they could... or had a reason not to do what they did..

Yet.. those pesky nuggets of truth and timeline keep interferring with their story.

So.. piecing together, or cobbling the story- either Hillary knew about the attack sooner than she let on, Obama knew sooner, but ignored and went to Las Vegas, or all the information was put in an inbox for the Monday morning Security Meeting...

It really is a SNAFU of foreign policy.

They held meetings to cover their rearends while these men were fighting for their lives!!

Mitt Romney needs to bring this up now and at the next debate calling obama a liar stating he knew the attacks were going on yet you did nothing to help those men. obama was helping the MUSLIM terrorists.

Then obama went to Las Vegas to party!

Finally, we're getting to the heart of the matter - which is why there was no attempted rescue / counterstrike.

Question: Were rescue / counterstrike discussed with WH?
Answer: Of course they were.

Question: Who turned thumbs down on these options?
Answer: Who do you think?

Question: Why did WDYT disallow rescue / counterstrike?
Answer: Because WDYT had reason for wanting the attack to succeed.

Question: What was the reason? Answer: Attempted rescue would have likely revealed information embarrassing to WDYT.

FTA: "...Americans whose compound was surrounded by an angry mob on Sept. 11,..."
The NYP, still blatting that false meme that it was an angry mob. Not the same thing as a battalion sized Al-Q assault that succeeded because the Americans weren't resupplied or provided CAS even though they held out for over 6 hours. A murder trial would be too good for those responsible for abandoning those men.

So State had eyes on the ground and Defense had eyes in the sky and they did nothing but watch people get killed.

Did Hillary ask Libya if we could enter their air space when Gaddafi was alive? Does the Libyan government in Tripoli today control anything in Benghazi? What's the worst that could have happened to us if we went in on a rescue mission? I know, four more years of 0bama.

What the 0bama administration needs to be pounded on is their response on 9/11 compared to GWB's response to his 9/11.

@6 Glenn Beck reported on Thursday or Friday that real time video was being sent to the Situation Room in the White House from an overhead drone while the fight was going on. I had heard it was being beamed to the State Dept. or some other place. I had not heard the fight lasted 7 hours. Thought the four were killed pretty early on. Will we ever get a straight story? Feel sorry for the families. Anyone know wher the bodies were sent for burial? Smith's mother didn't know.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

New York - President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev. Al Sharpton‘s National Action Network.The visit comes days after revelations surfaced that Sharpton worked with the FBI. 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. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev.

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.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

And this problem could cost investors far more money than any shenanigans related to high frequency trading. When the average investor, or even

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

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.
