(New) AC-130U Gunship was On-Scene in Benghazi, Obama Admin Refused to Let It Fire
PJ Tatler ^ | 10-26-2012 | Bob Owen

Posted on 10/26/2012 10:19:39 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot

If you don’t get torches-and-pitchforks irate about this, you are not an American:

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.

If you people keep posting stuff like this, the President will have a nervous breakdown. This is getting real close to home, and he doesn’t like to be confronted.

Its getting worse by the minute. They actually had the targets painted and still no help. So much for Panetta's claim that there was no intell.

No press briefing today.

Someone needs to do a video of Obama saying he did everything in his power and this new info.

Couple thousand rounds of laser aimed 30mm cannonfire. Sounds pretty much like a no-brainer. But no balls in the WH.

Am I misreading the original article?

Where does it say the gunships were on the scene or in the air over Benghazi?

Do we normally put Spectres over “spontaneous protests” involving videos?

Anyone in Right Wing media asking what the hell that plane was there for to begin with?

Maybe Biden was asking questions like that, because he’s never actually seen a pair, only hanging out with Democrats like he has.

Believable.
The commander in chief is someone who vowed to always be on the side of his co-religionists. Someone who always condemns attacks on his co-religionists. Someone who NEVER condemns attacks by his co-religionists, unless they attack one of their own.

The fact that this man hasn’t been impeached, means that half the public has its head up its a$$, that the media is in the tank for him, and that the Republicans are wimps.

At some point they’ve said they couldn’t bring military forces into Libya without permission.

Weren’t they bombing there a while back? I’m sure they didnt do that with permission from Ghadafi.

The article states:

“There were two AC-130Us deployed to Libya in March as part of Operation Unified Protector.”

Anyone recall that Somali hijacking of a merchant ship where the pirates had the Captain in a lifeboat and were threatening to kill him?

Especially all the talk, after the SEALs took out the pirates (killed 3 and captured the 4th), that they and the Captain of the USS Bainbridge had grossly exceeded their authority and violated their ROEs in doing so? But that since public support was so much in their favor that the Obama Administration couldn’t discipline them?

If this bit about the orbiting Spooky is true, it pretty much confirms all the stories (including the repeated delaying of the kill bin Laden mission) of a President paralized by indecisiveness at key decision points.

Ahem....They had painted the mortar team. Outside the Consulate grounds. That was mortaring them.

Obama bombed a 16 year old American citizen in Yemen with a drone. I would say that an active mortar team is fair game.

" Do we normally put Spectres over “spontaneous protests”

If this regime had it's way, it would be the standard if it was a " Tea Party " or a " Right Wing " protest to suppress it.

Maybe thats what Woods & Doherty were doing on the roof of the annex when they were killed - pointing a laser and waiting for support from their commander & chief.

America has never had a more desperate situation in my lifetime.

OBAMA IS OUT CAMPAIGNING, will go on MTV tonight, as if nothing of importance is happening.

Why can't OBAMA be ARRESTED now, for TREASON, DERILICTION OF DUTY, HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMONERS. One or all.

Why is he allowed to continue in this Election?

Nothing until after the election? then we may have JOE BIDEN??? and his VP would be?????? Pelosi???????

Maybe in some of the Swing States, print up some pamphlets about BENGHAZI with PICTURES, go out in the streets, on the campases and hand them out, go wherever Obama is campaigning. People don't even know what is happening.

Actually the AC-130 is pretty precise. AC-130As (or maybe they were “H”s) were tasked to support the failed Iranian Hostage Rescue mission, where they were supposed to provide “crowd pushback” as the Delta operators effected the rescue.

The U-boat (AC-130U) is at least three and maybe four generations more advanced than those earlier gunships were. 105mm and 40mm guns are very precise, especially when pointed downward as direct fire weapons.

I believe they’re referring to using the Gunship to attack the sources of indirect fires that were targeting the compound. Those positions had apparently been lazed at the time, and could have been struck with precision using a number of various assets.

The father of the Navy Seal who died just was on Fox-I listened to him in tears!

He was so strong, forgiving--but did NOT mince words when it came to the truth.

Dear God--if Obama is re-elected, he must be impeached for dereliction of duty!
