OBAMA Knew About the Benghazi Attack and Refused to Send HELP!

October 27, 2012

Clare Lopez was a guest on the Glenn Beck TV on Monday evening and told Beck, “They let our ambassador and others die. In real time, watching it happen, and they didn’t do anything about it.”

Obama and Jarret BOTH knew Ambassador Stevens was in serious peril and needed HELP. Multiple requests for HELP by Ambassador Stevens while under attack were denied by Jarret and Obama. CIA personnel were ordered to STAND DOWN NOT ONCE but SEVERAL TIMES by Obama and Jarret.

EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request to help during Benghazi attack, sources say

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command meaning, the President– who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11..

Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex 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. Soon after, they were again told to “stand down.”

Woods and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The rescue team from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.

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 Spectre 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.

CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood claims that requests for support were turned down by the White House.
“We can say with confidence that the Agency reacted quickly to aid our colleagues during that terrible evening in Benghazi,” she said. “Moreover, no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. In fact, it is important to remember how many lives were saved by courageous Americans who put their own safety at risk that night-and that some of those selfless Americans gave their lives in the effort to rescue their comrades.”

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.

Watch “Special Report Investigates: Benghazi — New Revelations” on Fox News at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, 3 p.m. on Sunday and 10 p.m. on Sunday.

A Special Operations team, or CIF which stands for Commanders in Extremis Force, operating in Central Europe had been moved to Sigonella, Italy, but they were never told to deploy. In fact, a Pentagon official says there were never any requests to deploy assets from outside the country. A second force that specializes in counterterrorism rescues was on hand at Sigonella, according to senior military and intelligence sources. According to those sources, they could have flown to Benghazi in less than two hours. They were the same distance to Benghazi as those that were sent from Tripoli. Spectre gunships are commonly used by the Special Operations community to provide close air support.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday that there was not a clear enough picture of what was occurring on the ground in Benghazi to send help.
“There’s a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here,” Panetta said Thursday. “But the basic principle here … is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on.”

U.S. officials argue that there was a period of several hours when the fighting stopped before the mortars were fired at the annex, leading officials to believe the attack was over.

Fox News has learned that there were two military surveillance drones redirected to Benghazi shortly after the attack on the consulate began. They were already in the vicinity. The second surveillance craft was sent to relieve the first drone, perhaps due to fuel issues. Both were capable of sending real time visuals back to U.S. officials in Washington, D.C. Any U.S. official or agency with the proper clearance, including the White House Situation Room, State Department, CIA, Pentagon and others, could call up that video in real time on their computers.

Tyrone Woods was later joined at the scene by fellow former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty, who was sent in from Tripoli as part of a Global Response Staff or GRS that provides security to CIA case officers and provides countersurveillance and surveillance protection. They were killed by a mortar shell at 4 a.m. Libyan time, nearly seven hours after the attack on the consulate began — a window that represented more than enough time for the U.S. military to send back-up from nearby bases in Europe, according to sources familiar with Special Operations. Four mortars were fired at the annex. The first one struck outside the annex. Three more hit the annex.

A motorcade of dozens of Libyan vehicles, some mounted with 50 caliber machine guns, belonging to the February 17th Brigades, a Libyan militia which is friendly to the U.S., finally showed up at the CIA annex at approximately 3 a.m. An American Quick Reaction Force sent from Tripoli had arrived at the Benghazi airport at 2 a.m. (four hours after the initial attack on the consulate) and was delayed for 45 minutes at the airport because they could not at first get transportation, allegedly due to confusion among Libyan militias who were supposed to escort them to the annex, according to Benghazi sources.

The American special operators, Woods, Doherty and at least two others were part of the Global Response Staff, a CIA element, based at the CIA annex and were protecting CIA operators who were part of a mission to track and repurchase arms in Benghazi that had proliferated in the wake of Muammar Qaddafi’s fall. Part of their mission was to find the more than 20,000 missing MANPADS, or shoulder-held missiles capable of bringing down a commercial aircraft. According to a source on the ground at the time of the attack, the team inside the CIA annex had captured three Libyan attackers and was forced to hand them over to the Libyans. U.S. officials do not know what happened to those three attackers and whether they were released by the Libyan forces.  FOX NEWS

“Secretary Clinton asked for more security in Benghazi, Obama said NO” Video


Last night, it was revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had ordered more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi before it was attacked where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered by Al-Qaeda but President Obama denied the request.

The news broke on TheBlazeTV’s “Wilkow!” hosted by Andrew Wilkow, by best-selling author, Ed Klein who said the legal counsel to Clinton had informed him of this information.

Klein also said that those same sources said that former President Bill Clinton has been “urging” his wife [Hillary] to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya, which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.

Klein explained that everyone knew what was happening in Benghazi from the CIA to the National Security Agency and that there’s intelligence cables that have not been released.

Wilkow asked, “If everybody knew this including the White House, who would have given the order to go in and save the ambassador?”

Klein, “The President…he should have given the order to use the rapid reaction force…”

Wilkow, “Not Petraeus?”

Klein, “Well it has to come from the president.”

Wilkow also asked Klein about Valerie Jarrett who’s the Senior Advisor to Obama and Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, and her role in this cover-up.

Klein said, “We don’t know but we can only assume that every action that the president takes, and he said so, he is on the record saying “I don’t take any actions without passing it by Valerie Jarrett”… so we have to assume that Valerie Jarrett whose also by the way, hooked into the Chicago campaign line…she has a direct line to David Axlerod, was a part of this whole cover-up in the White House.”

This latest news comes on the heels when the Paulding County Republican Examiner reported that former CIA officer, Clare Lopez was a guest on the Glenn Beck TV on Monday evening and told Beck, “They let our ambassador and others die. In real time, watching it happen, and they didn’t do anything about it.” The Examiner

    Oh Boy! This storm has already claimed the title “Storm of the Century”… What I don’t understand is we have weathered much worse storms/hurricanes over the years. Category 3 storms.. Of course they were destructive as expected.

    Hurricane Sandy is classified as a Category 1 hurricane packing 30 to 50 mph winds. I don’t understand.

    Benghazi

    Posted by Ann Barnhardt – October 26, 2012 7:23 PM
    Let’s quit the chickenshit dancing around here.

    The Obama regime has been running guns and BIGTIME armaments and munitions, including MANPADS, which are shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles designed to shoot down commercial jetliners, to the Muslim Brotherhood. This is just Fast-and-Furious except that the people being armed are musloids tasked with reforming the Islamic Caliphate instead of the drug cartels. But it is exactly the same thing. Ghadaffi was overthrown because the Obama regime wanted to use a chaotic, destabilized “wild west” Libya as the doorway to the Caliphate to get the arms in for distribution to Syria, Yemen, Jordan, Egypt and eventually Saudi Arabia. Egypt would have been too risky.

    Ambassador Chris Stevens and the CIA were somehow, some way running or heavily involved this armament pipeline.

    The Obama regime wanted and “needed” Chris Stevens dead, probably to cover the gun and armament running, so they killed him. Word was sent to the Muslim Brotherhood to attack the Benghazi facility. The Obama regime promised that there would be no retaliation and that a cover story about “slandering the prophet” would be provided. The Muslim Brotherhood wins all around. They get to keep all of the arms and MANPADS supplied by Obama with no whistleblowers AND they get their bullshit sharia law agenda advanced and explicitly ratified by the government of the United States.

    Get used to this business of the Oligarch class using the Muslim Brotherhood to do their dirty work for them. This has been the plan all along, and it will only escalate from here.

    As I have been saying since 2008, Barack Obama is the explicit enemy of what used to be the First American Republic, and of Western Civilization in general. EXPLICIT ENEMY. As in traitor. As in treason. As in murderer. As in should be arrested as a non-state, non-uniformed enemy belligerent, tried in a military tribunal, and upon conviction be put against a wall and shot by a firing squad, and then have his dead body publicly displayed so that there will be no future doubt or bullshit conspiracy theory crap that the son of a bitch wasn’t executed. No shit.

    And the same goes for dozens of people in his “administration” right along with him, except that the U.S. citizens, should be tried for treason. But like Obama, upon conviction (which should take all of five minutes to deliberate) these people should be executed by firing squad without delay. They are traitors and they are murderers.

    After almost four years of this shit, you people are still trying to parse these events as if these people are just misguided or inept. These people are the declared enemy of what used to be the United States (they put the last nail in the coffin – the Republic is already dead) and of Western civilization. They are attempting to bring about a global tyrannical oligarchy and are in a close, explicit alliance with islam in order to consolidate control of the oil producing areas of the muslim world and eliminate Israel, and eventually to use the Caliphate as the army which will totally overrun and overthrow Europe.

    Obama, Panetta, Axelrod and THEIR HANDLERS, all of these people are coming straight out of Communism, which is really nothing more than a push for a global tyrannical oligarchy. It has little to do with any sort of economic theory per se, its only goal is to put a cadre of oligarchs in power, and to enrich them by any means necessary. We should probably stop calling it Communism and just call it neo-Stalinism.

    Chris Stevens was tortured, gang ass raped, killed, and his dead body was gang ass raped again because the initial order came from Washington D.C. to kill him. The details really didn’t concern the murderers sitting in Washington watching it happen via drone-cam, nor did the collateral damage in the form of the other three men killed. Stevens thought he was “in the club”, but the poor fool was just another “stupid faggot” in the eyes of the Obama regime who was used and then killed because he was worth less than nothing to them. But then, all human life is worth less than nothing to these people.

    One of the SEALs was on the roof of the building painting a target with a laser expecting a drone or a gunship to engage. What the SEAL failed to understand is that the drone he knew was flying above him was in fact the asset of the very people who ordered the strike, and that they were back in Washington watching via that drone-cam, cooly waiting for him, the ambassador and the other assets there present to die.

    You people need to wake the hell up. Prepare for war. These people are killers and will stop at nothing until someone stops them.

    Here – Come – the – Denials!!!
    ………………………………..

    Obama did not deny requests for help in Benghazi: Aide

    The White House on Saturday flatly denied that President Barack Obama withheld requests for help from the besieged American compound in Benghazi, Libya, as it came under on attack by suspected terrorists on September 11th.

    “Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi,” National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told Yahoo News by email.

    Fox News Channel reported Friday that American officials in the compound repeatedly asked for military help during the assault but were rebuffed by CIA higher-ups. At a press briefing one day earlier, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, asked why there had not been a quicker, more forceful response to the assault, complained of “Monday-morning quarterbacking.” Panetta said he and top military commanders had judged it too dangerous to send troops to the eastern Libyan city without a clearer picture of events on the ground.

    The “basic principle is that 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,” he said during a joint question-and-answer session with Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff General Martin Dempsey.

    “As a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, General Ham, General Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation,” Panetta said. General Carter Ham commands the U.S. Africa Command.

    And the CIA has denied that anyone in its chain of command rejected requests for help from the besieged Americans.

    But Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol, in a post published Friday, doubted Panetta’s explanation and said the fault must lie with Obama himself. “Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No,” Kristol wrote. “It would have been a presidential decision.”

    “He’s wrong,” said Vietor.

    On Friday, Obama himself forcefully denied deliberately misleading Americans about the attack in Benghazi, which claimed the lives of four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

    CORRECTION 3:26 p.m.: An earlier version of this post confused the timing of the Fox News Channel report and Defense Secretary Panetta’s remarks. Panetta’s remarks came before the Fox report, not afterwards.

    The Real ‘War on Women,’ Courtesy of ObamaCare

    BO

    Gasping for straws, desperate Obama supporters continue to try to draw on the “war on women” canard, even with a tawdry video that uses sex to excite young women into voting for Barack Obama, if only for the free birth control promised in ObamaCare’s HHS mandate.
    What we are discovering, however, is that there is a real “war on women” going on, and it comes to us courtesy of the president’s signature health care law.

    We have already observed that ObamaCare presents an obstacle to American women economically because many business owners, fearful of how the law will affect them, have stopped hiring due to the employer mandate. This section of the law coerces employers to provide a minimum of health insurance benefits to employees as defined by the federal government.

    In addition, we saw that ObamaCare negatively impacts senior women, first because of the $716 billion that is taken from Medicare to pay for the new health law. As a result of this transfer of funds, doctors will continue to stop accepting Medicare patients since reimbursement rates will decline, resulting in longer lines to get in to see fewer Medicare providers. Second, senior women are likely to be denied care in the form of surgeries or treatments due to the law’s establishment of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), the unelected group of government bureaucrats that will be in charge of rationing care to cut costs.

    But it turns out the IPAB is not the only “board” that ObamaCare empowers. ObamaCare, it seems, is obsessed with the phrase that the left has usurped, from the field of medicine, and politicized to mean “abortion and contraception,” i.e., “women’s preventive health services.” New boards, like the US Preventive Services Task Force, will serve to assess contraception and other “preventive” services to determine which should be covered in full, without copays. To offset the costs of these freebies, insurance companies will need to drop coverage for some services and treatments that don’t make the new board’s cut, and American women may not like what the board members decide. In 2009, the Preventive Services Task Force made the unpopular decision to advocate that women between the ages of 40-49 should not get routine mammograms.

    Which women’s health benefits can we expect will be deep-sixed as a result of the Preventive Services Task Force? According to Dr. Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute, a few items that are likely to be rebuffed by the task force, depending on the political winds that blow, are:

    Chlamydia screening in most women over 25
    Cervical cancer screening in those over 65
    Routine tests to detect viruses that cause cervical cancer
    Breast cancer screening using digital mammography or MRI instead of the traditional plain film
    Screening for ovarian cancer and genetic tests that raise women’s risk of breast cancer
    Clinical breast exams in women older than 40
    Education on breast self-examination

    Per the prescription of Nancy Pelosi, we have found out more about ObamaCare since Congress passed it. How timely that we now discover that ObamaCare is the real culprit in the war on women.

    Lame Cherry has it diabolically correct-
    …………………………

    “My children, Analgate is one flatulent fiasco away from blowing the anus of the Obama regime to hemorrhoid hell, because the CIA is openly bringing down 1600 Penn Avenue after their people were left to be murdered there.

    Bill Kristol has it right in his short blurb in the CIA has thrown Obama under the bus, but the revelations in this are manifold as B. Hussein Obama now has not just been caught lying, but has now been caught allowing people to be murdered to cover up his crimes in instigating this “hostage crisis” involving Chris Stevens and other Americans to assist his 2012 election theft as was exclusively broken here first.

    It is the key in this that an Executive Decision took place, literally meaning as Kristol has been informed, that Sec. of Defence Leon Panetta would not have alone decided not to send in military help to rescue these Americans in Benghazi, but was warned off from doing so, and it is what is behind his “Monday morning quarterbacking by critics comment” as Panetta is sweating bullets literally at this moment as the evidence is there in the communications that he asked the White House what should be done, and 1600 Penn waved him off.”
    ………………..

    The only thing I would add is this- If at the outset, Obama’s original plan was the kidnapping of Stevens until a Trade for the blind Sheik was negotiated… then, Stevens would have been killed anyway.. He was sent there per Obama for collecting guns made in the USA that had traveled into the hands of Jihadists. per Obama. Stevens was doomed either way no matter the timing or the circumstance. The minute Stevens accepted Obama orders of going to Libya that May evening at the Correspondent’s Dinner, he was a ‘Dead Man Walking’.

  14. October 28, 2012 5:03 pm

    Yup, LC called it first. LC was missing one important element, the Blind Sheik’s part in all this…

    Obama wouldn’t have gone through all the trouble working for 6mos trying to release the Sheik. FREE HIM through a PARDON or Clemency if he wasn’t part of the plan. As it is, he was unable to do either of those two things BUT was allowed to transfer the Sheik to an Egyptian or Libyan prison. So, you might as well say, the Blind Sheik would have been FREED! But, Stevens would have been dead no doubt about it… He knew too much. That was also part of the plan… blaming the Jihadists for the mass murders would have been the perfect crime- killing 3 birds with one stone..

    At any rate… Stevens was the target, imo..everything else Obama had planned was interwoven around freeing the Sheik and retrieving American made guns from Libya and Syrian rebels.

    Report: Obama Watched Benghazi Attack From ‘Situation Room’

    Lt. Col. Tony Schafer told Fox News that sources were telling him that the President was watching the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya in real-time. Schafer told Fox that “only the President” could have ordered backup for the Americans who were under siege by terrorists so the President was most certainly informed of the situation as it was unfolding. “I hate to say this,” Schafer said, “according to my sources, yes, [the President] was one of those in the White House situation room in real-time watching this. And the question becomes, ‘What did the President do or not do in the moments he saw this unveiling?’ He — only he — could issue a directive to Secretary of Defense Panetta to do something.”

    Obama offered to reestablish full ties with Iran, Israeli paper reports

    Israel was told about and opposed president’s diplomatic incentives package, initiated soon after he took office, and Iran rebuffed it, according to Maariv

    Soon after he took office, President Barack Obama began a process ultimately designed to reestablish full US diplomatic relations with Iran, including a reopening of embassies, an Israeli daily reported Sunday. The initiative, part of a wider shift in America’s diplomatic orientation, aimed at reaching understandings with Tehran over suspending its nuclear program, Maariv claimed, citing “two Western diplomats very close to the administration.”

    The initiative led to at least two US-Iran meetings, the report said. Israel was made aware of the contacts, and opposed them.

    But Iran rebuffed the “diplomatic hand” offered by the White House, Maariv reported. The Islamist regime “opposed any sign of normalization with the US, and refused to grant a ‘prize’ to the Americans,” according to an anonymous Israeli source quoted by the paper.

    The information — the lead item on Maariv’s front page, headlined “Obama offered to renew relations with Iran” — comes on the heels of reports earlier this month that the US and Iran held back channel contacts toward establishing direct talks over Tehran’s nuclear program. Both the White House and Iran denied those reports.

    According to Maariv, Deputy Secretary of State William Burns met with chief Iranian nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili for an hour in 2009, and one other meeting between officials from both sides took place as well.

    Included in the diplomatic incentives package offered by Washington would be, in the first stage, the opening of interest sections in Washington and Tehran, with the possibility subsequently of expanding to full diplomatic ties, including US and Iranian embassies and ambassadors in each other’s capitals, Maariv claimed.

    As part of restored diplomatic relations with Iran, Maariv reported, Washington was ready to hold senior level diplomatic contacts, to agree to reciprocal visits, to approve security cooperation between the countries, direct flights between the US and Iran, and the granting of visas to Iranians wishing to visit the US.

    The report, if true, would indicate a readiness by Obama to oversee a sea change in American policy toward Iran. The two countries have not had direct diplomatic relations since the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979-1981, when the Shah was overthrown during the Iranian Revolution and workers in the American Embassy held hostage for over a year. The US currently maintains a trade embargo with Iran and any diplomatic contacts are officially handled through third parties

    According to Maariv, Iran also rejected the attempt to reestablish ties out of fear that the regime in Tehran would become weakened by normalization with Washington.

    The meeting between Burns and Jalili was reportedly held in Geneva in October 2009, on the sidelines of talks between Tehran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany, also known as the P5+1.

    Those talks, which Jerusalem has characterized as a stalling tactic by Tehran to buy time to develop its nuclear program to weapon capability, have mostly failed, despite several attempts to hash over curbs on Iran’s uranium enrichment activities.

    Last week, the New York Times and NBC reported that Washington has held secret contacts with Iran with the goal of holding one-on-one negotiations over their nuclear program. According to the report in the New York Times, Iran was open to the possibility, but asked to wait until after the American elections on November 6 so they would know who they were negotiating with.

    The White House denied the report, but said it has always had an offer on the table for Iran to engage in direct negotiations.

    In Jerusalem, Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon said last week that he knew about the contacts and welcomed them, while Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said he hoped the Obama administration’s denial was true.

    Iran’s nuclear program is widely believed to be for military purposes, a claim Iran denies.

    Israel considers an Iranian bomb to be an existential threat and has reportedly lobbied for military action against the program, while the US and much of the West maintain that there is still time for sanctions and diplomacy to convince the Iranian government to abandon their attempt to develop a nuclear weapon.

    From what I gather, the storm is due to make landfall in New Jersey and New York sometime early this morning. Storm warnings for RI begin at 10am throughout the day until 8pm tonight. Coastal communities in RI and MA are being evacuated expecting a storm surge of 10′ to 15′along low lying areas. Wind speed between 40 to 45 mph with gusts 50 to 55 mph. Fingers crossed we do not lose power. All summer our power company has been trimming trees with branches hanging over power lines which were responsible last year for prolonged power outages throughout our region. Thanks goodness outside temperatures are bearable even if we do lose power. A sweater or jacket is enough to keep us comfortably warm until power is restored.. Will keep posting with updates until we can’t anymore..

    Thanks foxy…
