GERALDO. That story has been out for months. Even if it’s true it has ZERO to do with how MRS. WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE and THE FOREIGNER handled THE BENGHAZI disaster. No american would take the steps they took and left our people alone to die without making every effort to save them. The only effort these two frauds made was to COVER UP for the good of their own rear ends and democratic politics and to HELL WITH THE COUNTRY.

Given that he's called FR "a hate site,"

LOL! He considers us a hate site because most everyone here refers to him as "Whorealdo" or "Jerry Rivers," he's way too thin skinned. :-)

Neah.
Doesn’t need to that.
Just surround Israel with Moslem Botherhood aligned nations, then pull the plug on support for Israel. Then all the MB dominated countries go to war against Israel.
Look for Jordan and Lebanon to be next on the MB’s dance card.

Even though most of us, including myself, aren’t real big fans of WHOREaldo.. isn’t this what we’ve been saying on FR.. since 1 or 2 days after the attack??

Now that Gerry says so, I'm starting to re-think the theory...

This excuse is GARBAGE!

Because it does NOT explain why all rescuers were told to stand down!

The ONLY reason you send Amb. Stevens to an unsecured location and then refuse to send help, is if this were a faux kidnapping, planned in advance.

He was to be trade bait, to excuse Obama in returning the blind Sheik.

Then BS alert!!!!

Wonder if there was Obama’s concern about angering our allies or soon to be or we were hoping “would be our allies.” He looks at America as being evil.

Or maybe we were trading weapons however I don't see how that would have prevented us from rescuing the Americans.

Who knows. However, as usual someone is fibbing.

a secret mission in Libya to arm the Syrian rebels, which was the reason for the initial secrecy about the attack in Benghazi.

Arming the cartels, then the jihadists. Wonder what the DNC got in return ($$$)....

F/A-18's in afterburner.. I'd be shocked if we couldn't have reached the target in less than 3 hours TOPS. One strategically placed JDAM on an enemy roadblock would've scattered the attackers like rats.

Even a simple fly-by by a single F-16 would've given the attackers pause to continue their assault. Leaven them wondering what's next..

two examples of current fighters. These would be time estimates, combat loading to slow them down a little.

To me one of this roaring by at mach 1 would be enough cause the crowds to
scatter.

F-18 E/F Super Hornet (USA)

Maximum speed: Mach 1.8+ (1,190 mph, 1,900 km/h) at 40,000 ft (12,190 m)

F-16 E Fighting Falcon Block 60 (USA)

Maximum speed:

At sea level: Mach 1.2 (915 mph, 1,470 km/h)
At altitude: Mach 2+ (1,500 mph, 2,414 km/h)

That pretty much blows their excuse out of the water. About that “tanker” excuse, do the fighters have a 10 gallon tank? /s From what I understand, these fighters have a range that would have well been within the Benghazi distance and back. Did the mean old Republicans not give the Air Force enough money to top off the tanks? /s

thanks for posting the info. makes the excuse they used look even more dastardly.

His sources on Free Republic?

I think we'd ALL be amazed if we knew the truth.

I have seen far too many times stories and interviews based on theories that I read here on FR days earlier.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised that WHOREaldo decided that the missiles to Syrian rebels story made the most sense based on the common sense facts presented numerous times here on FR.

My pet theory is that it was the few who did respond without getting shut down from their superiors messed things up by turning an arranged kidnapping into an actual hot firefight.

From what I've have been reading there was also some warehouses (two if I recall)that were used to store the recovered weapons that went missing.
The CIA guys were were guarding/filling them recovered weapons.
After the attack, when some Italian media got there, they photographed empty wharehoused with a bunch of empty man-pad creates

Maybe an initial defensive attack and to scare away the attackers and then a follow up with something more ASAP. Might take a couple of days to get an rescue team to the embassy but at least they would have made an effort to protect them and might have been able to hold off the attackers.

It is certainly not a good thing to abandon fellow Americans when they need help and as an ambassador I would question my loyalties to the US if I thought that I might be left to fend for myself during an attack.

If Ambassador Stevens was buying up arms in Libya, you can take for granted that nobody could compete with the depth of those pockets.

Sounds familiar...like...

If DHS is buying up ammunition in the US to the tune of 1.7 billion rounds, you can take for granted that nobody can compete with the depth of those pockets.

Center for Security Policy senior fellow and former career CIA officer Clare Lopez observed that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with the so-called “consulate” whose purpose has yet to be disclosed. As their contents were raided in the course of the attack, we may never know for sure whether they housed — and were known by the local jihadis to house — arms, perhaps administered by the two former Navy SEALs killed along with Stevens.

The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East. Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat J. Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the “opposition” in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.

What we do know is that the New York Times — one of the most slavishly pro-Obama publications in the country — reported in an Oct. 14 article, “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster.”

In short, it seems President Obama has been engaged in gun-walking on a massive scale. The effect has been to equip America’s enemies to wage jihad not only against regimes it once claimed were our friends, but inevitably against us and our allies as well. That would explain his administration’s desperate and now failing bid to mislead the voters through the serial deflections of Benghazigate.

Horse manure. An operation would have had contingency plans and cover stories in place, Geraldo. This is about betrayal, treason, and a criminal conspiracy to cover it up.

2 camps, Obamatollah vs. Hillary, are playing PIN THE TAIL ON THE COMMIE.

We’re seeing the public face of this “behind the scenes” battle.

Various news outlets are cracking and announcing “what really happened,” but some are spinning TOWARD State Dept (aka Hillary), while others are spinning TOWARD the White House.

When DirtyWhorealdo pipes up, you know he’s been fed a very specific talking point.

Examples of this battle in the past 24 hours....

CBS: “12 different drafts of Benghazi talking points were made, and the final draft was missing the word al-Qaeda which appeared in the original draft.”

WHOREALDO: “Obama (via CIA) was running weapons to Mozz Bros in Syria.”
