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 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.

#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.

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.

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.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

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

Too bad he has yet to figure out what’s really driving the problem of illegal smokes: our high tobacco taxes.Just days after a key report found New York has the highest percentage of illegal cigarettes of any state, the governor announced the creation of a new “strike force” meant to crack down.Teams from 13 state, local and federal agencies, he said, are joining to stop “the influx of counterfeit and untaxed tobacco products into New York” and nab smugglers who “evade the law and rob the state

Obama’s empty boasts

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

´The debate over repealing this law is over´: Obama

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

The Clinton Library took the wraps off another batch of White House documents Friday afternoon, offering new insights into how aides scrambled to address the Monica Lewinsky scandal, how the hot-button issue of race tied the White House staff up in knots and how former President Bill Clinton cast a wide net for advice in advance of his major speeches.The new set of Clinton documents make little mention of then-first lady Hillary Clinton, and so are unlikely to have a major political impact. However, many of the memos were written by or mention aides to Bill Clinton who now hold

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
