Recent claims that an attempt to rescue the American Ambassador in Libya was vetoed by someone high up in the administration raises a disturbing question. Did someone higher up want the Ambassador and/or others at the consulate to die?
Investigators need to examine this possibility. One potential problem might be that the action resulted from the same type of "failure to communicate" that caused the death of Canterbury Archbishop Thomas Becket in 1170. King Henry II was locked in a long running dispute with Beckett and at some point said something that caused his knights to mistakenly believe the king wanted Becket dead.
Someone in the White House may have believed that President Barack Obama wished something bad would happen to Ambassador Chris Stevens or someone else at the Libyan Consulate. When the report of the attack came in such an individual might have decided the attack would help the President get what he wanted and vetoed a rescue. I hope this is not what happened, but it is a possibility that deserves investigation.
I believe we can reject the possibility that Obama was worried about civilian casualties because Obama didn't worry about that possibility when he was trying to overthrow the Libyan government and hasn't worried about that possibility when authorizing drone strikes in Pakistan.
I initially thought the Obama administration simply didn't have resources available to rescue people at the consulate because it didn't recognize the potential threat due to the continued instability in Libya. However, the stories about the veto of a rescue attempt indicate rescue resources were available.
We know from the killing of Osama bin Laden that the Obama White House has the capability to monitor events like the attack on the Libyan consulate. Thus it is unlikely that the failure to respond was due to a lack of information. Either someone in the administration didn't want to respond or Obama's approval was needed and he was sleeping or brewing beer or something and didn't want to be disturbed.
The most plausible theory I have come across, the one I created, is that this was an attempt to create a Gay Martyr for use in the collapsed Obama campaign. But something went wrong and the ex-Seals refused orders and got killed too.
Yeah, I can just see it. Obama really said to get the Ambassador a BUD LIGHT!
Apply Occam’s Razor.
There was no surprise about the attack. There was no 'failure of intel.' The attack was predicted in precise detail a month before it occurred. The draw down of security had to be intentional.
The failure to approve a rescue had to be intentional.
Keeping the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) in the dark about the attack had to be intentional.
Tweeting apologies for the 'anti-Muhammed video' beginning early that morning, repeatedly blaming all the violence at all of our embassies on the 'video' and making an apology video to air in Pakistan had to be intentional.
Stevens presence in Benghazi on 9-11 had to be intentional.
Unless I see some pretty solid evidence for other reasons, I go with the logically obvious.
Obama is an indecisive coward. and a liar. He flat didn't have the balls to take a decision that risked civilian casualties. In this case the "civilians" were terrorists.
Not that it mattered. It didn't matter if they were Avon ladies on acid. The lives of *our* personnel were in danger and they should have been defended with all available resources. They weren't because sissy Obama doesn't have the stones.
Because the administration has not provided information on what transpired in Libya (in fact that came out with implausible lies) all kinds of speculations are being made. They have not provided the truth because there is something they want to conceal. There are hundreds of people who have information on this coverup. Some of these hundreds are patriots and will somehow provide their information to the media (non MSM). Eventually the truth will emerge.
Small point: Henry’s knights were not “mistaken.” Henry’s penance was earned and public.
...raises a disturbing question. Did someone higher up want the Ambassador and/or others at the consulate to die?Like, oh, I don't know, Huma Abedin? Valerie Jarrett? Hillary Clinton? Or pretty much anyone *other than* Obama/Biden?
what ever happened to those ads?
