Live video from a drone flying over the U.S. Consulate during the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, was monitored at a Defense Department facility, but was not fed to the White House, senior officials say.

Hundreds of Americans in Government and The Services were watching our men being slaughtered while 0bama refused their desperate pleas for help.
Somebody is going to talk.
They’ve written this in a way as to make the average citizen think, “Oh, so the W.H. didn’t see it happen.”
When in reality, this is just one stream. There would have been dozens of other ways for the W.H. to see the same video feed.
They are getting kinda desperate.
How long would it take for an F16 at max sustainable speed to get from Aviano Italy (or closer) to drop a few 500 lb. bombs on laser targeted bad guys?
Our guys on the roof had lased the bad guys. Where were the bombs?
0bama never allowed the planes to take off.
Maybe all those employees at the state dept should be fired immediately. Obama is CIC. Ultimately he should be held accountably for EVERYTHING that happens , screw ups like this, in the State Dept.
So, what were they watching at the White House? They said they didn’t have the tape from the security cameras. They said they had to wait two weeks to buy, I mean, acquire that footage to see it for the first time. Lies lies and more lies.
I call BullSh*t!
Of course it was or everyone would be fired or posted in Antarctica!
Obama is as guilty of murder as if he had dragged our guys through the streets himself.
While Obama, his democrats and the MSM remain in power, I will not believe a single word coming from those traitors.
**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?**
Apparently the ambassador had become a liability to Emperor 0bama, so he conveniently let his muzzie bros take care of the problem.
Next thing we will hear from the White House, “The attack never happened.”
ping...”senior officials say”
no reason why given. hmmm...
“The official said a support team was scrambled from the Libyan capital of Tripoli and, despite having to put together a team from scratch and charter a plane to fly them to Benghazi, were able to make the trip in less than four hours.
Officials have declined to comment on whether anyone in Benghazi or Tripoli had access to the drone footage in real time, or whether it was used to help the rescue team find its way into the city from the Benghazi airport.”
??? but the Tripoli rescue team waited three hours for Libyan escort to the site.
And what about the 2nd drone???
As usual, more discrepancies-— and many, many more questions.
Why so many people feel the need to continue to protect BO at all costs is beyond me. Isn’t there anyone that will tell us what really went on and how deep BO was in it and Hillary too? Why hasn’t Hillary (miss, I can’t recall) testified?
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
So, how many WH flunkies does it take to turn on the A/V?
If a feed is playing in the Situation Room, but no one is there, is it available?
Horse manure. The WH sit-room could access that at any time. It wouldn't even require a request from the Pres. Does anyone really think the WH would be denied access? If they didn't watch it then they chose not to. We all know by now that 0bummer didn't even bother to go to the sit-room.
1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.
Plus Fact Two:
2) No rescue mission was attempted.
Equals Fact Three:
3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
IMO the support team from Tripoli never asked for permission from the WH or anyone in DC. When the alarm went out the embassy in Tripoli was automatically alerted just like the dozens of other com centers around the world. All indications up to this point are that they put together a team and went to help on their own.
