Dead Men Tell No Tales (now with repaired links)
I’ve watched a lot of movies about the CIA and stuff, and the whole Benghazi thing is certainly starting to resemble them. Before we begin, while I don’t listen to him much (since he’s a little too dramatic), I have to give Glenn Beck credit. He’s covering the murders in Benghazi far better than anyone else; and the national media is barely covering it at all. The whole thing is getting pretty weird. In fact, it’s becoming a little like the movie “JFK,” which, as my wife will admit, I watch a lot, and have decided that it’s 100% true no matter what some lame reenactment by the Discovery Channel tells me.
We wrote about this two days ago. You can find that article here. When asked about the emails that went to the White House just 20-30 minutes after the attack began, the Administration had no comment. Since then, some stuff has happened. First, we learned that Barry gave an interview to 60 Minutes on September 12, the day after the Libya attacks. In the interview, he admits terrorists were behind the murders, which makes sense, being that we knew within two hours of the attack’s completion that terrorists were behind it. Curiously, the interview never aired. Why? It was certainly relevant to what just happened the day before.
This morning, CIA head Leon Panetta decided to throw himself into the frey, by asserting,
‘You don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on, without having some real-time information about what’s taking place,’ Panetta said.
The whole “we didn’t know what was going on” theme has become tired, since various reports indicate that both the White House and Pentagon were receiving emails and had a live video feed from a drone flying over the area. Oh, and how much more information do you need than a mob of people shooting at a building containing our Ambassador?
And then there’s the following information, which has just come out:
Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to ‘stand down,’ according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to ‘stand down.’ (Emphasis added).
Instead of followng orders to do nothing, Woods took it upon himself to organize a few people and go to the consulate to help out anyway. They evacuated the consulate, then returned to headquarters. What happened next is equally incredible.
At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. 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. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.
Both Woods and Doherty were killed by a mortar at 4:00 a.m. Libya time, some seven hours after the attack began. You should read the entire article linked above. It’ll make you very angry.
The response to this attack by the White House was an abomination. And don’t let them tell you the CIA didn’t give the information, or it was the State Dept.’s fault. They all work for Barry. He’s the Commander in Chief of our military. In fact, handling stuff like this is literally the one thing the President has 100% responsibility over. I’ve implied it before, but I’ll say it outright now: the Administration wanted Stevens dead. There is absolutely no other explanation for why it repeatedly refused additional security before the incident, and refused to take action during the incident. And now they’re lying to everyone in an effort to cover it up.
Oh, and what did our leaders say to Woods’ father as his body was rolled onto the tarmac at Andrews Air Force Based?
Hillary: Sorry, and we’ll “make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”
Biden: “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?”
Good Lord. And these are the people who are going to protect this country?
