Why Obama Sent No Rescue:
Benghazi Lasted ‘8 Hours’ But
Was ‘Over in ... 30 Minutes’

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/20/2012 11:41:09 PM

The chairman and the vice chairman of the State Department Accountability Review Board (ARB) that investigated the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, made dramatically different statements on Wednesday about the duration of those attacks that resulted in the deaths of four Americans. The relevant duration of the event shrunk from "almost eight hours" to "only about 20 or 30 minutes" when a reporter asked this "accountability" team why the U.S. military had not been sent to Benghazi to help that night. During his opening statement at a State Department

Comments:
As this onion continues to get its layers peeled, its more than enough to make one cry. No matter how the 0bamaNation tries to obfuscate over his and all other agency knowledge of events in real time, there should have been adequate force to protect Steven's on the ground before, during and when the firefight began. A rescue should have been attempted at the very least. Our subsequent action shows US as weak to the Muslim terrorist.

Did anybody really believe this internal investigation would tell the truth? Don´t think for a minute that Hillary didn´t scrub this thing while "recovering".

They forgot to mention this was an early April Fool´s joke.

Since their constituency is the "low information" voter, they lie with impunity. They don´t care about the voters who are engaged enough factually to understand their lies. We don´t matter since we can´t vote them out. They won.

Does anyone else get the idea that there was someone in DC on the line to the attackers telling them to go back and finish the job? Before the Seals were permitted to leave the annex, the Libyan were called to see if they could help. The security force from within Libya arrived at the airport and began to negotiate with Libyans to go to the embassy. And finally, after the initial assault on the annex, there was an attack 5 hours later. Is this a coincidence?

What wasn´t mentioned was Stevens and how he was missing for at least 4 hrs. The WH and State didn´t know where he was, whether he had been taken hostage. There was time to get help there in that amount of time.

Of the many many self-proclaimed skillsets of the President the most impressive (to himself) was his great empathy and understanding of the Muslim religion. He had a fantasy that he could build some sort of relationship with radical Islam. This attack didn´t fit the narrative so the lies started. Now is there is no path back to the truth that doesn´t land him and many of his minions in some very hot water. Lower level people at the State Dept will be offered up as a sacrifice but those with real accountability will pay no price. It is the way of Washington. Do not doubt it.

Everything about this - from the Arab Spring, to removing Qaddafi, to removal of the bodies after 9/11-#2 ... was effed up.

Four people dead in a hell hole. For no effin reason.

Everything about North Africa and the Middle East policy has been irreparably effed up.

Sorry for language implications but I can´t stand this. All of us are worthless to this administration, except for our money for their personal toys.

Exactly, the video was an obvious cover up attempt. If it was a cover up, what was being covered up. Until the media starts reporting that Benghazi was a CIA gun running operation we will continue to get false information.

What about the prisoners being held in the compound for questioning? Paula Broadwell told the story in Colorado. Notice there has been no mention of those boys. This was a rescue mission to release the prisoners. O can´t have a narrative out there that says he went against his word.

My question: Whatt was so important that Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi on September 11th when we know he was begging for more security prior to that date? Makes no sense. He put himself in the most dangerous city in Lybia on the anniversary of 9/11 just for kicks?

Didn´t Hillary have tons of file boxes removed from the White House? Put her on the hot seat and let her lie her way out of it. She will no longer be Secretary of State, but maybe they could send her to jail for perjury! Wouldn´t that be special? Then impeach obama, because he, above all, is responsible.

extreme disgust and hatred : loathing

That´s a simple definition of "abomination"
as well as "Obamanation," Traitor-in-Chief´s view of America and Americans, and the reason he is free to exercise dictatorial control. Benghazi was swept under the rug because it was in PINO´s interest to do so.

This is on the back burner because they have their gun crisis which cannot be allowed to go to waste, as Rahmbo points out. But, guns were part of the Behgahzi issue. Something about guns from Libya to Syria and Ambass. Stevens, went back into a hot spot to finish up something after he had dinner with the Syrian diplomat. It remains fuzzy and will remain fuzzy as in Whitewater and all the other scandals that Clintons and Obama and the Chicago Connection running the White House control

I caught a few minutes lst night of the Dems on this committee yesterday whining abut how this event has been politicized and that we should focus on the four dead Americans. And then Juan Williams on Fox News said the same thing. But oh wasn´t the Valerie Plame politicized to the nth degree? And how died there?

This government today does not deserve the sacrifice of all of our dead warriors and diplomats buried in our national cememteries at home and overseas.

FTA: The administration apparently determined that reaching out to a Libyan militia and government that had already failed in their duty to protect American diplomats, and then spending "hours" to charter a private plane, was a more efficient way to get reinforcements to Benghazi then to deploy some of what Mullen at Wednesday´s briefing described as the "lot of forces in Europe both at sea and on land."

This is beyond incompetence. It was a deliberate order to stand down and this is the spin to cover this travesty/murder of our personal due to the inability of the "Libyan security forces to protect our embassy(?).

And don´t try pass this off as no implications directly from the White House. That order to stand down came directly from the top/VJ and the Squatter in OUR HOUSE.

According to one congressman, there are at least 30 survivors being held in ´isolation´ somewhere so they can´t be questioned. That the government can hold you like this, with no outside contract, because they have to ´cover their fannies´ is very scary.

So basically #37 you are saying that they are now political prisoners? I think you are right. That poor guy that was blamed for the video is also still in jail.

Judging from Hillary´s face back in Sept when all of the bodies came back, she knows what happened and she also knows that if anyone finds out she will be toast, too. She was greif stricken, but it was for herself. obama looked bad, too, but he seemed to have recovered more quickly.

The military people that know have been threatened with their retirement. It´s going to be hard to crack them, because that is their survial. That is not right, but there it is. It isn´t right to keep those survivors captive until it blows over. We must go after Obama and and the rest of these reprobates in government. We have to keep up the pressure until we get answers that are correct and true. If it is gunrunning then all the more reason to keep on all of Obama´s gun problems. He has more than just Benghazi.

#37, #39- sounds like the nearly 30 government kidnap victims need to be found and freed. Bound to be lots of citizens here in the states that have seen them, wherever they are - assuming they are back home here. Think of the implications - their families have to have been pressured as well to not be kicking up a fuss - unless they didn´t know where they were posted and are still receiving communications from them.

Congress should demand:

That Hillary testify before Congress under oath, so that if she lies they can charge her with perjury.

The right for a small group of (Republican) House Committee Chairmen to conduct closed-door, one-on-one interviews, under oath, of each of the survivors who were rescued from Benghazi. Force the administration to identify them and make them available – no strings attached. Grant each of them full immunity from prosecution for any crime EXCEPT perjury, which eliminates their right to plead the fifth or to have an attorney (or a representative of the administration or State Department) present during the interview.

The President claims that “the minute [he] found out what was happening”, he gave an order to “make sure that we are securing our personnel [in Benghazi] and doing whatever we need to”. Have him identify the person to whom he gave that order and the date and time at which he gave the order. Then subpoena that person to testify to Congress about what actions he took to fulfill that order.

From what I was reading online, totally by accident, something that I came upon was almost a blow by blow real time conversation between people who seemed to be watching everything unfold. I watched and read and though my memory may be of later on in the events, they kept wondering why help did not arrive. Why Stephens was not found by the others who were with him was a puzzle to me. Why it went on so long without help...I don´t know who those two men were who were back and forth, but they said more than once that there were videos from at least one drone, and at least one unknown American was talking by internet connection to someone. Oh, it was probably to those, 400 or so in various levels of command and military offices, who were also watching from the situation room or Pentagon or CIA...but they don´t really know what exactly who knew what or when or where. Sack of rocks wouldn´t believe those lies. But I am just sayin´.

Reading the transcript of the Benghazi investigation sounds like deja vu . A time frame of 30 minutes was available to send help stated the two unkown water carriers for Obama. Benghazi attack was being viewed via robots were being viewed in real time for at least anywhere beteen 5 to 8 hours. Panetta a few days later than 9/11 stated publically that they had no force available and time frame inadequate to help the belegeured defenders at Benghazi. The reason let´s point out again that Obama and his minions insisted ( Hillary Rice Panetta Adm Mullen et al)that the attackers were a mob stirred up by an anti islam movie.Al Quada was not quoted since Obama a few weeks earlier had told the world that El Quada was on the run since ´HE´ had killed OBL.Panetta and the Military elite knew that assistance was at hand at Sicily half hour by jet troop transport at most one hour.Shock troops lowered down into the Consulate Compound to aid the heroes defending the Consulate. What outright incompetance. Hillary wants to be the next prez she is not all there !

I was just thinking - why don´t we as a nation, fast the news! Too often we have considered fasting food to lose weight and become healthy. How about fasting the news, mainly the liberal news, to become healthy-minded! They have not cared for US! They have not reported "exactly" what has happened, even though I am sure they knew!

Political correctness has ruled and ruined this country.

Class warfare has brought more division, knowing we "all" want success and prosperity.

This government is "stealing" from the so-called rich to "give" to the so-called poor, who are "often" unwilling to work for their own personal needs.

We need to boycott or just stop watching/listening/caring about those who have "proved" they don´t care about US, only their liberal agenda, their own jobs.

We don´t have much power left, but we do control our TVs and buying/subscribing to our newspapers,by not turnng them on/not buying into the news they are saying/printing - selling!

We need to hit them in their pocketbook! Wages are where they are at too! I am sure Obama plans to protect them, but we could counter his play.

America is dying and we cannot sit by and allow it to happen!

Also, we need to get down on our knees, knowing God alone is able to "deliver US from evil - here and abroad!

Merry Christmas to everyone. Jesus came to set the captives free - that´s US!

Court Upholds EPA Emission Standards

Washington - A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s emission standards for hazardous air pollutants from coal- and oil-fired power plants. In its ruling, the court rejected state and industry challenges to rules designed to clean up mercury, lead, arsenic and other dangerous air pollutants. The new regulations were designed to remove toxins from the air that contribute to respiratory illnesses, birth defects and developmental problems in children. Some industry groups have criticized the standards, saying the EPA was overstating the benefits. Industry groups argued it would cost billions of

You don´t have to go to the Griffith Observatory or other prime watching spot to view the first total lunar eclipse of 2014. Numerous "blood moon" video streams are available on the Web. The Griffith Observatory will be streaming the event live from the Zeiss dome beginning at 9:45 p.m. The Slooh Observatory in the Canary Islands will also be doing a live stream. NASA is also planning a live stream, with experts taking questions from viewers. For those who want to take in the event in person, Griffith Observatory decided to open its doors Monday (it´s usually closed). "We are expecting large crowds," the observatory said in a statement.

Chelsea Clinton says in a new interview that she´s open to a run for a multitude of offices, from mayor of New York to the U.S. Senate. "I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives," Clinton told Fast Company. "If at some point that weren´t the case, and I didn´t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators -- and I'm lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know -- maybe then I'd have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer."

Even as the cost of prescription drugs has plummeted for many Americans, a small slice of the population is being asked to shoulder more and more of the cost of expensive treatments for diseases like cancer and hepatitis C, according to a report to be released on Tuesday by a major drug research firm. The findings echo the conclusions of two other reports released last week by major pharmacy benefit managers, which predicted that spending on so-called specialty drugs would continue to rise. The report, by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, also found that consumers’ use of health care — visits to the doctor,

Dozens of teenagers are now tweeting

One dumb teenager is easily excused — but the host of Twitter users currently tweeting bomb threats at major airlines is another story entirely. In case you’ve somehow missed this latest round of Internet idiocy, here’s what went down: Sunday night, a Dutch teenager identified only as “Sarah” infamously tweeted a threat at American Airlines. (“hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan. I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye,” she wrote. Hilarious!)

Guantanamo Bay Navy Base, Cuba - A military judge abruptly recessed the first 9/11 trial hearing of the year Monday after defense lawyers accused the FBI in open court of trying to turn a defense team security officer into a secret informant. If true, the lawyers argued, attorney-client confidentiality might be compromised in the case that seeks to put on trial and execute five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 attacks that killed 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. At issue, in part, was the publication in January of prison camp musings by the alleged 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheik Mohammed,

Abuja, Nigeria - Bomb blasts ripped through a bus station in the suburbs of the Nigerian capital today in the largest single attack on Abuja since insurgents began violent operations in 2009. Authorities say 71 people were killed and 124 were injured in a strike on Nyanya Motor Park, a chaotic bus station where commuters board megabuses into the pristine city center for work less than 10 miles away. The blasts in Nigeria´s capital are a direct challenge to the government´s recent assurances that it has managed to contain Boko Haram, Nigeria's militant Islamist group, to the remote northeast of the country. The last attack in Abuja was two years

Sioux Falls, S.D. - A man with a history of mental illness was sentenced to death by a jury on Monday for killing a South Dakota hospice nurse as part of a plot to assassinate President Barack Obama. James McVay had pleaded guilty but mentally ill to a murder charge in 2012 in the stabbing death of 75-year-old Maybelle Schein. The Sioux Falls jury chose the death penalty, though jurors could have sentenced him to life in prison without parole. McVay, 43, said he killed Schein and stole her car as part of his plan to drive to Washington and kill the president. Authorities said McVay walked away from a minimum-security prison

Lawmakers dug in Sunday for a proxy war over the new health care law, now that President Obama has selected a well-known manager to replace Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and lead his signature program into a new era. Mr. Obama says his budget chief, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, is a “proven manager” who will lead HHS with distinction and build on whatever momentum the White House gained by signing up 7.5 million Americans in private health coverage from October to March. But Sen. Tim Scott, South Carolina Republican and member of the Senate Finance Committee that will vet

A woman has been arrested on six counts of murder after authorities found the bodies of seven infants packed into separate cardboard boxes at a home in Utah, police said. Police arrested Megan Huntsman, 39, of Pleasant Grove, on Saturday following a gruesome discovery at a residence formerly occupied by the woman who they say moved out in 2011. Officers responding to a phone call from a family member who is currently living at the Pleasant Grove residence arrived at the home to find the first baby which "appeared to be a full term," according to a police statement.

NASA will launch SpaceX’s Dragon cargo ship to the International Space Station on Monday as planned despite a failure in a backup electronics box for the station’s robotic arm. NASA mission managers said Saturday that the crew on board the ISS is in no danger, but a problem in a backup computer component could have forced a postponement, NBC reports. NASA announced Sunday, however, it would proceed with the launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla. late Monday afternoon. The SpaceX Dragon capsule, which is slated to carry 4,600 pounds of supplies to the International Space Station, is scheduled to launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9

Outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says the administration´s own predictions that the new health care law´s online sign-up system would be ready by Oct. 1 were "just flat out wrong." Sebelius told NBC´s "Meet the Press" in an interview airing Sunday the health care website´s launch was "terribly flawed and terribly difficult." She says that eight-week period was her low point of her tenure. Sebelius last week announced her resignation. She says she wanted to give President Barack Obama enough time to bring in a new health chief. Sebelius´ resignation comes just a week after sign-ups for

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

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
