Benghazi Whistle Blower: “… Americans Were Deliberately Left There To Die”
The Western Center for Journalism ^ | May 2, 2013 | Billy Allman

Posted on 05/02/2013 9:44:41 PM PDT by Perseverando

Two of my SEAL brothers (Doherty and Woods) were in Benghazi, working with the CIA on an intelligence mission to locate shoulder fired surface-to-air missiles that were stolen by Al Qaeda when Libya fell. They heard several shots being fired near the consulate. It was recorded that Ty radioed to inform his superiors and tell them what he was hearing and requested permission to assist at the consulate. However, they were told to “stand down!” An hour later, they called again to report the gunfire and requested to assist and were again told to “stand down!” WHY? And by whom? Only the President can give the order to military units to cross a country’s borders.

On or about midnight, while shooting in various areas was still going on, it was reported that Woods and Doherty called for any U.S. military support they could get because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house/annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound (which was verified by the radio recordings and by the drone that was flying overhead.) The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, it was reported that Doherty was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun killing several terrorists when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. Because they knew that there was a drone overhead, Woods had a laser on the mortar position for targeting. However, the drone was reported to be unarmed.

It was reported that both Woods and Doherty were killing every terrorist that appeared. Ty repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship that was in a neutral area. This is a C-130 aircraft that fires 20mm bullets (about the size of a man’s thumb) and

Travis, you called it months ago right after it happened.

Only the President can give the order to military units to cross a country’s borders.

Only the POTUS had the authority to act!

0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer (U.S. Army ret.), former CIA Station Chief Gary Berntsen and former CIA operative Mike Baker

They confirm everything Col. Hunt said about automatic notifications to the WH and add more details.

There are three scandals here...

---------------------------------------------------------

Denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.

The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.

ONE man had the authority to act that night.

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

0bama deserted 41 people!

Wasn't Obama too busy pimping himself on "The Pimp With the Limp" radio show or something like that? Campaigning was way too important over saving lives of Americans.

Everything about Libya stinks.
Obama never got authorization from congress to take military action in Libya.

Then it took a charter ship from Malta 3 days to rescue western citizens, when there is a US naval presence just hours away.

Nothing sticks to this ***hole.

When it first happened, we learned of obama giving the orders to ‘stand down’ and he was never called to explain. So he, basically, left those Americans to die. Not sure why this is news now but it is good that it’s being brought up again.

Thank you!! And that article is from October. They were told to "stand down," according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to "stand down."

That was the guys who were only a few blocks away. Then Glen Doherty put together a team in Tripoli and with no permission went to help. Teams who were ready to go outside Libya were only told to stand down when it became clear that they were not going to get the “go” order.

If this isn't a clear case of 'dereliction of duty' and a president placing his own political aspirations over Americans in distress, I don't know what is. Secondly of course, is the cover-up afterwards which in some ways is more egregious because the news media was enlisted by 0bama to also cover it up for him to win the election.

Election over. Game ON and gloves OFF this time Congress!!!!

Eventually the truth of Benghazi will come out. There are still enough honorable men who know what happened. I do not understand why more do not come forward. It it said that they are concerned about their careers. Their careers would be ruined. Doherty and Woods’ careers are ruined. They will never be promoted.

He also didn’t count on the neanderthal idiot terrorists thinking it was a good idea to smoke someone out of a building by using diesel fuel to start and feed the fire. Doesn’t anyone remember the initial reaction of the cell phone video of them dragging his body out to discover he was dead? Then they rushed him to the hospital in a desperate attempt to revive him.

The reason Obama didn’t pay any attention is that they all thought he was captured and they would get the call in the morning with the already agreed to demands they expected.

I also remember reports, not in the MSM, that were coming from leaks inside State that the administration was trying to get the Sheik released to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Ironically enough, it was the group that stormed the compound that the Sheik created,

And only a handful of Republicans with enough spine to vote for them. For King Barry (peace be upon him) impeachment is richly deserved, but it won't happen. If he is dethroned, it won't be Congress that does it.

Give this up. The Senate will not vote to Convict and Remove - House votes to Impeach will only further destroy us as it did with Clinton's trial. Moreover, Zero will only do more of the same destructive crap while the House Trial is in progress.

“… Americans Were Deliberately Left There To Die”

This is the result, but what was the reason? Find that and find the truth. Remember, the Principles were all watching this live as it went down. All had signed off on the Flash traffic that the incident was in progress.

The only plausible explanation for me in allowing or planning for this event and then so heavily covering up has to lie somewhere in an area which ordinary people would see as unspeakable, as an abomination, as a crime of such proportions that the entire US government would fall overnight.

O could be signaling via this Gift that he is willing to trade as many American lives, as many US troops, as many Israeli lives needed to mollify the muslim world. Everyone who is paying attention knows that when Iran has enough working nukes, they intend to use them. They may have one now, and that may not be enough or the right moment has not yet come round.

O, by this act, has said in effect, “kill as many as you want, I'll just watch and make strong speeches.” ... The darkness drops again but now I know That twenty centuries of stony sleep Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle, And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? -- William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

We may not win, but by god we will not go down without a fight and they will know that we will fight for freedom, truth and justice!

has to lie somewhere in an area which ordinary people would see as unspeakable, as an abomination, as a crime of such proportions that the entire US government would fall overnight.

That area is the gun running operation that moved thousands of tons of formerly Libyan weapons to Al Qaeda mercenaries in Syria. Weapons used to slaughter Christians and overthrow the secular Syrian government that never attacked the USA.
