There’s not a chance in the world that we’re forgetting about Benghazi amid all the other revelations of abuses of power swirling around this corrupt administration like dirty water going down the toilet.
Not a CHANCE.
Yesterday, an important hearing that didn’t draw much attention drew mine.
While most are centered on the talking points, I have always insisted there are other, VERY important questions which need to be asked and answered.
Among them… WHO ISSUED THE STAND DOWN ORDERS???
Yesterday, we may well have drawn too close for Obama’s comfort to that answer.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, was in the hot seat yesterday and when the topic of the stand down orders reared its head, Dempsey’s response was telling.
First, he said there were NO stand down orders.
What he stated was, “They weren’t told to stand down. A ‘stand down’ means don’t do anything. They were told that the mission they were asked to perform was not in Benghazi, but was at Tripoli airport.”
Dempsey stated that the Special Forces Unit, tasked with a standing order to rescue the Ambassador in the event of trouble and then to rescue all personnel of the Libyan Mission had been instructed, by their command in Stuttgart, Germany, to…
STAY IN TRIPOLI… AT THE AIRPORT… BECAUSE THE PERSONNEL FROM BENGHAZI WERE, “ON THEIR WAY AND THEY WOULD BE BETTER USED AT THE TRIPOLI AIRPORT BECAUSE ONE OF THEM WAS A MEDIC.”
Clearly, the best… THE BEST use of a SPECIAL FORCES UNIT… TRAINED TO RESCUE THOSE UNDER FIRE AND EXTRACT THEM FROM HARM’S WAY… is NOT as AIRPORT MEDICS and only because ONE of them was a medic.
The notion is SO absurd it defies ANY sense of logic whatsoever.
What makes this even MORE astonishing is that the order, their task of rescue and extraction, was a STANDING ORDER.
That means that NO further orders would have been necessary for that Special Forces Unit to swing into action.
However… there WOULD be a need to supersede that STANDING order to keep them at the Tripoli airport as medics.
So… Whether you refer to it as a STAND DOWN order or as a CHANGE of ORDERS…
One thing is CLEAR…
Their standing orders WERE changed.
Now then…WHO gave that change of orders?
WHO COULD give that change of orders???
Only one person.
Only ONE can alter such a standing order and that ONE would have been…
Nobody else has the authority to supersede the standing rescue and extract orders.
Why am I so sure it HAD to be Obama?
Dempsey stated, “THEY WERE TOLD…” not “I told them…” and the ONLY heads to roll after Benghazi were those of General Carter Ham and Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette… BOTH OF WHOM WANTED TO SEND MILITARY ASSETS TO ASSIST IN RESCUING OUR PEOPLE IN BENGHAZI.
HAD SOMEONE ELSE, OTHER THAN OBAMA, CHANGED THOSE ORDERS RESULTING IN THE DEATHS OF 4 AMERICANS, SOMEONE ELSE’S HEAD WOULD HAVE ROLLED OUT OF THE WEST WING AND INTO THE ROSE GARDEN!!!
Let me spell this out as clearly as possible.
Within the first minutes of the attack on the Consulate, while Obama was still in the situation room at the white house, HE had to communicate with the Special Forces Command in Stuttgard and order the Special Forces unit IN Tripoli to STAY in Tripoli and shortly thereafter, Obama walked out of the room, never to return that night and never to check in for updates on the situation.
HE HAD TO KNOW DAMN WELL THAT STEVENS AND OTHERS WOULD NOT, BECAUSE OF HIS ORDERS, HAVE A CHANCE TO SURVIVE!!!!!
HE… OBAMA…DIDN’T JUST LEAVE THEM THERE TO DIE… HE ORDERED THEM TO BE LEFT THERE TO DIE!!!
So now, we have the why?
WHY would Obama issue the change of orders? Why NOT go in and attempt the rescue and extraction of diplomatic personnel?
ESPECIALLY when you have 2 former Navy SEALS painting enemy targets with lasers?
The only obvious answer is startling.
That being… Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith and whoever else might lose their lives that night, September 11th, 2012… were preordained NOT to come back alive.
There was no telling, at the time OF the first attack, the one on the Benghazi Consulate, how long it was going to be in progress. 10 minutes? 30? An hour? 2 or 3 hours?
NOBODY knew. Those Special Forces should have been in the air within MINUTES of the revelation that the Ambassador and the Consulate was under attack.
Remember too, that Tyrone Woods was NOT supposed to have led a small team the mile or so from the CIA annex to the Consulate to offer assistance either.
REMEMBER that because, THAT means, perhaps, NOBODY was supposed to have gotten out of that Consulate alive.
That TOO sheds a new light on why the CIA annex was later attacked.
Could THAT attack, the one on the annex, been meant to have been an attempt to erase any knowledge or witnesses from the attack on the CONSULATE???
Is this why we have yet to hear from ANY of the survivors of either attack?
Where ARE they?
WHO are they and WHY have we not heard a word from them in 9 months???
Perhaps even more importantly…
WHAT, EXACTLY, DID AMBASSADOR STEVENS KNOW THAT MADE HIM EXPENDABLE?????
Now… Add to this the FACT that our FBI was kept OUT of Benghazi, cooling their heels in Tripoli for 3 weeks after the attacks.
Why? When JOURNALISTS had free run of the place and the very terrorists did too?
What was scrubbed from that Consulate before the FBI was allowed in and WHO ordered them NOT to go to Benghazi?
CNN discovered the Ambassador’s personal journal and IMMEDIATELY, the State Department demanded its return.
Why, when the NYT could walk right up and talk to the terrorist, supposedly in charge of the attacks, while he sipped a frappe at a sidewalk café, can WE not find the rat bastard to this very day?
When you take the revelation from Dempsey’s testimony, under oath yesterday, and add it to all that preceded the Benghazi attacks… The drawing down of OUR security teams in Benghazi, ignoring prior attacks on our Consulate, the British Ambassador and the Red Cross, the warnings issued by what was left of our security teams and Ambassador Stevens himself of al Qaeda blanketing Benghazi and THE HIRING OF ANSAR AL-SHARIA TO PROVIDE “SECURITY” AT THE CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI…
More and more, this is looking like a planned execution of our Ambassador from the INSIDE.
A coordinated HIT JOB and COVER UP planned in the oval office and carried out by Ansar al-Sharia in Benghazi.
So… Why didn’t anybody on that congressional committee PRESS Dempsey as to who gave the order to turn a Special Forces team into airport medics?
Because, I suspect, there was nobody there who had the wherewithal to ask such a question.
Oh… There COULD have been such a Congressman there but… coincidentally, he was defeated in November when St. Lucie County had a 141% voter turnout, the recount was stalled by democrats in positions of power past the deadline for counting ballots and, to this day, thousands of MILITARY ballots remain… UNCOUNTED.
That’s right… I suspect that were LT. COL. ALLEN WEST still on that committee… THE most important question NOT asked yesterday… WOULD have been asked.
WHO CHANGED THE STANDING ORDER TO RESCUE THE AMBASSADOR TO… STAY IN TRIPOLI IN CASE SOMEBODY NEEDS A BANDAID?????
Obama, like O.J. Simpson… Just keeps looking in all the wrong places for the killers.
