Broadwell: Petraeus Knew
of Benghazi Plea for Help

Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Gil Ronen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/12/2012 4:42:28 AM

Military expert Paula Broadwell, who was allegedly improperly involved with resigned CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus, confirmed in October that the CIA annex in Benghazi asked for reinforcements when the consulate came under attack on September 11. She also acknowledged that "there was a failure in the system." Broadwell was speaking at her alma mater, the University of Denver, on October 26. Her lecture, which is on YouTube under the title "Alumni Symposium 2012 Paula Broadwell," now has added value, because based on the recent disclosures, it can now be assumed that she indeed knew exactly

Affair aside, this woman is no dummy. She graduated from West Point in 1995. She is a lieutenant colonel, ex-intelligence officer and counter-terrorism expert.

She indicates that the commands to stand down and lack of support for our CIA and consulate offices came from the miserable bunch at the WH.

Why the affair and the bitter emails? Who knows. She worked in a field where secrecy is a core value. Lust corrupts!

The CIA is now in fullscale CYA mode denying her assertions. There is an eternal truth here however. When the pillow talker is the head of the CIA, the pillow talkee is a more reliable source of accurate information than the CIA, NYT, or just about anybody else.

Why claim this is part of a "puzzle" when we all know it is a failure of leadership from the White House? The lamestream media cannot cover this up any more. They can try, but the too much has been brought out in open to allow it. Obama has long proven himself to be the poorest person to occupy the WH ever. It just galls me to hear him say that no one will be left behind after Sandy, but no one in the media (except Fox News) has the cojones to bring up Benghazi.

Broadwell should be called to testify by the House Committee. She seems to know a lot more inside info than most others on Benghazi? It´d be grand to get this tart under oath and then grill the Dickens out of her?

I had a really strong and rather witty comment almost ready but I lost the whole idea after reading that and laughing myself onto the floor.

I think that Obama is so very happy that this is coming out about Petraseus as now, he has someone to blame for the Benghazi mess and he thinks he will not be accused of anything. We will never know the truth as it will never be told..... In the meantime, a man was elected President who was not capable for the first four years and is not capable for another four years, but here we are - stuck with him.

How do you think she is going to flame out. Hanging, OD. that pesky convenient heart attack. Is she aware they are planning her demise?

She is already targeted and is a dead woman walking. What she needs to do is hold a press conference, spill her guts, and hide in plain sight. But she won´t. She wants to be faaaaamous like Monroe, Anna Smith and all the other floozies now pushing dasies.

FTA: "As a former intel officer it´s frustrating to me because it reveals our sources and methods, I don´t think the public necessarily needs to know all of that.´´

What Broadwell is revealing here is exactly who anonymous & unnamed White House sources are that the LSM relies to inform or spread lies with.

I guess the only ´´size´´ that matters to these modern day Mata Hari´s are the length of time served by these government officials and how big the secret is they share together. [I guess there is a ´´g-spot.´´]

I listened to the symposium video as recommended by #2. While listening I had the feeling that we are witnessing the shadow world of intelligence ops playing out ("performing" or "operating" might be more accurate terms) for all the world to see, especially for "We The People."

Who is playing whom in this instance? Where´s our George Smiley (John LeCarre´s genius spy)? Do we have our own master spy who can ferret out the lies, the moles and other deep cover double and triple agents at work? I hope so.

Who, in the liberal media knew? They continually protected Obama. He alone, as President of US, is responsible. He did not respond to the attack! He did not make a stand for US. He let innocent men die! Their blood is upon him.

The families of the fallen need to sue Obama and let the lawyers fight it out in court, if that is what it takes to get the truth!

Broadwell seems to know more than our President. How does this happen? She and Petraeus conversed together more than the President of US did with US!

God is opening our eyes!

What are we going to do with this information?

Are we able to make a stand for righteousness, beginning at the White House?

What did Obama know?

When did he know it, and how much?

Obama has constantly lied to US and the media just pats him on the back,congratulates him for outsmarting the common people.

We are a country in turmoil.

Righteousness has been "driven out" from US!

We accept anything.

Obama ran a campaign of fear and contempt.

Too many Americans swallowed it "hook, line & sinker" and now we all, together, will suffer the consequences.

Pray for America. We are lost without God.

The Democractic convention threw God out.

Let US make a stand that Obama does not represent US. We are a country founded on Christian principles, dedicated to God, wants freedom for all.

This cannot go away without US knowing exactly what happened. Too many in the Obama administration have come forward with lies that need to be challenged.

At 12:20 the youtube video was no longer available. I am disgusted by the MSM primarily and the republicans next because of their unwillingness to investigate this whole matter thoroughly. People should be prosecuted for the dereliction of duty involved.

The Margaret Trudeau comment was great.

As an aside for those who still need proof that truth is stranger than fiction. the two candidates (so far) for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada are Justin Trudeau (son of Pierre and Margaret) and Deborah Coyne (daughter of Pierre Trudeau with his girlfriend, and therefore half sister to Justin).

The question of "How much did Obama/the white house know?" about Benghazi is not the issue. The issue is -- They are paid to know and act appropriately in such an attack and they did not.

I doubt that Petraeus would make the decision to not help protect those who were under attack in Benghazi.

Re the concerns for Ms. Broadwell´s safety, perhaps her identity was revealed to protect her from disappearing as an unknown. Thankfully, Ms. Broadwell has military training, and hopefully, a sharpshooter ribbon/medal so that she can protect herself.

What Broadwell reveals in the video is astonishing! She tells us that the CIA was holding 2 members of the "militia." (Could have been al qaeda or God know who else)and this was the reason for the attack to get their people back. I noticed that she walked back a little on that by saying "its all being vetted" but I believe that was the real reason for the attack.
This puts the blame squarely on the WH/SOS´s plate.
They knew we had prisoners and those prisoners could be squeeze for a myriad of intel purposes and the WH dropped the ball and in the process doomed four goood dedicated operators.
Whata president we have.

22, my daughter is a Lt in the Army and has to deal with that kind of attitude all the time. She is a diligent officer. Having said that, I don´t think women should be in combat.
There are career people inside the CIA who like things the way they are and don´t want change. Porter Gaus found that out as well as Petraeus. It is like a shadow government. I have a feeling there are more bombshells to come.

The building had a Jail Fox showed it and called it (strange i thought at the time) a safe for a time hiding place Bars is not a hiding place.

My take on all this is that Petraeus would not allow himself to be blackmailed to keep quiet when 4 Americans were murdered.
Were did Broadwell get her information i thought Petraeus broke up with her.
To not give the Ambassador protection in the first place was like a death sentence for him. Is that what was wanted and the reason not to send help.
Would Petraeus ever go along covering up something like this i think not.

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk.

U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

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

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
