Panetta Says We Lacked
Real-Time Benghazi Intel

Investor's Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:HollowLeg, 10/26/2012 10:25:15 PM

Despite real-time video, emails to the White House and desperate cries for help, our defense secretary says we didn't send rescue forces to our Benghazi consulate because we didn't know what was going on. In a statement bordering on the Kafkaesque, Leon Panetta told a news conference Thursday that four Americans, including our Libyan ambassador Chris Stevens, were left to die without a rescue attempt by nearby U.S. military forces because there's "a basic principle here, and the basic principle is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on,

Comments:
If Sandra Fluke Or Lilly Ledbetter had been at our Benghazi consulate, Obama and Panetta would have sent in the 82nd Airborne to rescue them.

Panetta is shoveling Bravo Sierra --just like the rest of the surrender monkeys in the 0b@$tard administration. Not just shoveling. They're using a D9.

One more thing to answer Panetta. Only a coward would say what you said. Ty Woods didn't know what he was getting into but he rushed to help any way and saved lives. Who would I rather have as SOD, you gutless coward or someone like Ty Woods?!

Soooo right #3, and it dovetails with OPs comment...remember this incident of a Cessna 180 innocently breaching Zero's airspace over Seattle in early 2010? TWO F-15s launcched and immediatly went supersonic and covered the 150 miles from the Portland area to Seattle in minutes, thoroughly shaking downtown Seattle early afternoon...F16s Sigonella, Italy would have covered the 400 miles to Benghazi in no time and the WartHogs cuda been there in 2hours...

That's just a bald faced lie. They were getting real time intel from the scene from the CIA annex, the consulate, and a drone circling over head. Our guy on the annex roof was painting the mortar location with a laser so an aircraft could hit it with guided missiles. An aircraft that never came. Panetta, Obama, or both, made the decision to watch and do nothing. The scope of their betrayal is breathtaking.

America will send a million to rescue 4. And 4 brave Americans will volunteer to rescue a million. You cannot order a hero to be a coward. He will refuse the order.

Not one product on one single alphabet station (abccbsnbccnnpbsmsnbc) should be bought by anyone. It is beyond time to send a message to the old media that we are NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS CORRUPTION at worst, bias at the least anymore.

IT IS THE JOB OF THE MEDIA TO HOLD PUBLIC OFFICIALS ACCOUNTABLE...to dig for the truth. WHERE ARE THEY?? Their behavior is shameless.

One good thing: the old media are being exposed as USELESS for democracy.

Really stupid thing to say. You have real time intel, what you don't have is certainty. You're not sure what the enemies strength is, what weaponry they possess or an accurate count of their numbers. You never do in a hot, combat environment. 100% accurate intel should never be the deciding factor. The deciding factor is do you leave your brothers to die or do you attempt to save them. We don't abandon our brothers on the battlefield. Obama turned his back on our brothers and went to bed.

Our Benghazi Consulate was being attacked and that's the key here. It doesn't matter who the attackers are/were or why they were attacking. Help was requested many times by the Benghazi Consulate's defenders and none ever came.

I wonder if Obama, Biden, Hillary and the rest of the real time watchers of the attack had popcorn and sodas brought in while they all oohed and awed as the mortars blew up and killed our Seals????

We're not talking knowing when to stand at a dinner for the Queen of England. We're talking bumbling, foolish, inept policies and responses(or lack thereof)that put American lives in danger!

From what I have read there were PLENTY EYES on the scene, a very comprehensive SITREP from them being communicated to CIA, military, and the WH, drones at the scene giving REAL-TIME vid feeds, CIA guy on the roof LASER PAINTING the mortars for whomever that would show up... what the HELL? Our country couldn't send a few missiles or drones in there within 7 HOURS? Troops were less than 90-120 minutes away.

Even AT THE TIME, someone should have done SOMETHING! Hell, TWO UNARMED ex-SEALs showed up, grabbed guns discarded by the alleged Libyan "guards", and KILLED SIXTY attackers and rescued 30 employees!! It took that mortar fire to take THEM out (the one that the CIA was laser-painting).

Panetta - YOU need to be charged with TREASON as well. You are a disgrace to America.

Maybe the empty chair needs to explain to his defense secretary about how we don't need a large navy or armed forces because they are so much better equipped, powerful, etc.

Did Panetta seriously think the Afghan terrorists had a nuclear bomb or some other such overwhelming threat that he needed to hesitate to send our far superior forces and weapons? Absolutely NONE of the administrations's representatives have said one thing that hasn't made them fall into the category of being either a jackass or a liar, or both.

34, my misfortune runs deeper than yours, it starts with FDR.

The assessment of my list of modern day Presidents includes; LBJ, biggest liar, JEC, most inept, and WJC, most immoral.

JFK and LBJ were contenders for the immoral award but failed to outdo clintoon.

And then, along came BHO who eclipsed all previous categories and established a new one; most treasonous.

He Won the Bozo Statue at the Infamy Awards in all categories his first term.

Harry Truman was the only good Democrat President in almost 100 years - he stood tall and respected the office when leadership was sorely needed.

Since his election, Obama has never made a military decision. He had made political decisions involving the military, which is far different. His boy Petraeus is no different from the panty-waisted flag officer corps whose primary mission is to elevate muslims and gays as exemplars of our fighting forces.

But his imbecillic fans chant, "he really cares about us, talks like us and thinks like us". You have part of that right, thinks like you... maybe but clearly does he care a bit about those people in the battle for their lives and watched as they lost, when he had to power to help? If that =caring, then I don't buy it. But, if another teen like Trayvon pops up, ( but not in Chicago or Detroit- we don't care about you) then we bring out the race hustlers, Sharpton and Jackson and make a federal case of it.

#14 is eloquently spot on. Panetta, with that despicable, lying crapweasel Dempsey sitting next to him, lied outright to the American people. The key decision makers in the WH, Pentagon, CIA, State and AFRICOM knew within minutes what was going on, in real time. To do nothing to help those men in Benghazi is just criminal negligence. And cowardly to boot. People, starting with Obama, need to go to jail over this.

Maybe I didn't learn about it in my History classes as I grew up, but did we have "real time intel" during the attack of Pearl Harbor? Did FDR have to launch an investigation of who did what and why? And promise to bring the perps. to "justice"? And did our military have to make sure that no "innocent bystanders" are harmed.

The shear stupidity of Panetta's remarks are beyond belief. Any one of us who have spent even one term in the military knows how stupid it is. When we are attacked, we fight back as soon and as hard as we can. With every thing we have available. None on that happened here and 4 Americans died needlessly. I, like all others here, am sick to my stomach over it.

# 52,I suggest that months ago,this administration made a committment that regardless of any outcomes resulting in "uprisings in Country", under no circumstances shall anyone on "my team" retaliate. Tripoli must remain as our conduit to reflect my Administration's effort to support Democracy in that part of the world. The Ambassador will be phasing out our assets in Benghazi as part of my cost-cutting promise to the American people.

There are 3 lines of comminication from the Ambassador to the WH. One is a hot line.
The message that would be sent on the hot line was "Ambassador in Peril". THAT message had to be confirmed as received. Then that message MUST be given directly to the President face to face.
Mark Levin checked Obama's schedule on 9/11 and he returned to the WH at 4:50, and at 50 was in a private meeting with the VP and DOD. He knew then. No doubt in my mind.

And even now, information is creeping out that an AC-130 may have on station awaiting an order to release weapons. It never came.
While our SEALS painted the mortar location with a laser, that's not something they would do unless there was an AC-130 or possibly an armed drone ready to put ordnance on target.

All those lies have a bad habit of eventually biting the liars in the butt.

Now here's a definite impeachable offense, lying to Congress and falsifying information in reporting. Phone calls, e-mails and a drone overhead and Panetta is automatically lying. He should be summoned to Congress, have this evidence thrown in his face and told he must resign that day or be impeached the next. Grow some, Republicans. Make the Democrats try to defend the indefensible. Imagine the testimony from the families of those killed and how it would completely demolish the 0bama regime and any Democrat who tries to defend this.

Obama is a KGB plant. Panetta gave a eulogy at the funeral for Frank Marshall Davis, known communist and said by some obummers real father (see side by side pictures for comparison)? We have communist infiltration at the highest level of our government.

Political Correctness: Its force structure decimated by sequestration and budget cuts, the Marine Corps considers exchanging its proud and honored look for hats similar to the gendarmes who direct traffic in Paris. If sequestration´s annual spending cuts continue past this year, the Marine Corps will lose 8,000 in troop strength, Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the Defense Writers Group in June. But those who remain will at least be fashion-conscious if a proposal for changes in their dress headgear goes forward. Men and women in the Marines

Junk Science: Al Gore, patron saint of climate fraud, argues with Australia´s prime minister that its brushfires are not caused by warming and that the record shows the koala bear, like the polar bear, is quite safe. They were the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, consuming half the state of Victoria, claiming 12 lives and destroying an estimated 1 million sheep and thousands of cattle. And they occurred in February 1851 during one of the coldest years on record. Bushfires have been part of Australian life for centuries

Energy: The Golden State´s governor has signed legislation that regulates but does not ban the technology that has sparked an energy boom nationwide — and which may yet restore the state to solvency. If any state were to ban hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, the process that releases oil and natural gas trapped in porous shale formations, one would think it would be California. Gov. Jerry Brown, who leads the government in a state that hosted Solyndra and embraces endangered bird-chopping wind turbines,

Scandal: A deadly battle involving grenades between a drug cartel and Mexican police has added to the toll of lives taken with weapons trafficked by suspects that U.S. officials watched but did not stop. The same Obama administration officials responsible for letting thousands of weapons walk into Mexico and right into the hands of drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious also passed on several opportunities to arrest and prosecute an arms smuggler who was busy supplying the cartels with hand grenades.

Corruption: The crash-prone government health-care site asks applicants if they want to register to vote as they try to sign up for ObamaCare. By sheer coincidence, a plurality of the uninsured are likely Democratic voters. Call it Motor Voter on steroids — the piggybacking of voter registration to an otherwise unrelated government function. Those trying to navigate Healthcare.gov, a website that looks and functions as if designed by the department of motor vehicles, are being asked if they want to register to vote just in time for crucial 2014 midterm elections

Regulation: From lost jobs to fewer hours to premium hikes that would make a loan shark drool, Barack Obama´s home state is a case study in why the first rule in health care reform, as in medicine, should be to do no harm. The president and his cohorts in the media have long accused Republicans of being out of touch with ordinary people. Remember the concocted story about President Bush the elder being so out of touch he was unfamiliar with supermarket bar-code scanners? But it´s President Obama who´s out of touch with ordinary people

Health Care: In a stunning admission, our Health and Human Services secretary admits ObamaCare is part of the fundamental transformation of America away from a free market in anything to a nanny state on steroids. Maybe Kathleen Sebelius was being sarcastic, or maybe she thought it might be a good way to reach the "young invincibles" who feel they had better things to do with their money than enroll in ObamaCare. But her recent appearance on Jon Stewart´s show on Comedy Central went about as well as ObamaCare´s train wreck of a rollout.

The Shutdown: Federal closure threatens to bar priests not on active duty from conducting services on military installations or from ministering on base, and they risk being arrested if they attempt to do so. The latest Obama shutdown shame is the news that, until it´s over, none of the families of those killed in Afghanistan can expect to receive the $100,000 death gratuity promised to reach them within 24 to 36 hours. Grieving families also cannot expect the military to cover all the usual costs of family travel to meet their loved ones at Dover Air Force Base where they return

Global Warming: Temperatures have flat-lined for 15 years, the Arctic and Antarctic are gaining record amounts of ice, most computer models have been wrong, yet the networks are buying into the alarmists´ narrative. Earth might not have a fever but the media do, judging by their hyperventilating about the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s quite fraudulent report (Fifth Assessment Report or 5AR) released Sept. 27. One network — CBS— even turned a blind eye to the truth and claimed that temperatures "could have risen by more than 200 degrees." This fiction came from CBS´ Ben Tracy

A confirmed atheist when he was 15, C.S. Lewis came around to believing in God when he was 31. "I knelt and prayed: perhaps, that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England," he wrote in his autobiography, "Surprised by Joy." Soon he embraced Christianity. A lecturer at English universities, Lewis became a superstar author by explaining his faith and weaving it creatively into novels. Books including "Mere Christianity," "The Screwtape Letters," "That Hideous Strength" and the series "The Chronicles of Narnia" have sold a total of 200 million copies, but he wasn´t always popular.

Energy Revolution: America´s natural gas boom threatens Russia´s economic strategy, an expert says, leaving it with few alternatives to rescue its economy while threatening to shatter its energy stranglehold on Europe. Russia´s abundance of energy resources has long allowed it to use energy both as a foreign policy weapon and as the bedrock of the Russian economy. Whenever energy prices rose, Russia benefited and its neighbors often felt the restraining leash of dependence on Russian energy, particularly natural gas. Government-controlled energy giant Gazprom was in such a strong position it could demand decade-long contracts

Health Reform: Those icons of voter fraud have been tasked and paid to guide an unwilling public through the ObamaCare enrollment process — while getting access to confidential information on thousands of people seeking health insurance. Somehow it does not surprise us that among the conductors on the train wreck known as ObamaCare will be leftist agitators from President Obama´s beloved Acorn, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. They´ll get up to $48 an hour as "navigators" to lead us through the dead-end ObamaCare maze. As Mathew Vadum reports on the American Spectator blog

In a meeting with the heads of the five service branches in 2010, President Obama offered the leaders a choice: Support my efforts to end the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, or resign. In a video obtained by BuzzFeed via a Freedom of Information Act request, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert Papp revealed that Obama was unwilling to compromise with service leaders over DADT during a meeting in 2010. “We were called into the Oval Office and President Obama looked all five service chiefs in the eye and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ I cannot divulge everything

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

WASHINGTON — LeBron James wants you to sign up for health coverage under Obamacare. So do Magic Johnson and Jonah Hill’s mom. Monday is (sort of) the deadline for Americans without employer-provided health coverage to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act — the White House extended it so that anyone who’s begun to sign up by Monday can still complete the process by April 7 — and the final enrollment numbers will be an important test for a law intended to expand access for the uninsured. It’ll also be a test for the White House’s high-octane sales
