Posted on 05/30/2013 5:14:35 AM PDT by bestintxas
When the American mission in Benghazi, Libya was attacked on September 11th, 2012, only one person had the positional authority, legal mandate, and communications apparatus to give the order to defend our personnel on the ground: the President of the United States. The President did not give that order, and four Americans died in Benghazi that day. All the rest of the nonsense to which we have been treatedfrom prepared talking points, congressional hearings, and finally to the outright liesmatter not when compared to the ignominious moments in which the President of the United States refused to do his job.
That same day, two other American embassies in the Middle East were also under attack in Sana, Yemen and Cairo, Egypt. As a result, our intelligence systems were on high alert. When the calls, satellite and drone feeds, faxes, and reports began bombarding every command center from Germany to the United States, our nation, already at war for eleven years, was again under siege. Staffs from Africa Command, European Command, the National Military Command Center, the CIA Operations Center, the State Department Operations Center, and the White House Situation Room were fully operational.
This all means that on September 11, 2012, our national security apparatus was on full alert. It means everyone was briefed. This is how it works; no games, no conjecture, no television and movie looks, just real battle in real time with real lives at risk.
The road to that indecision is littered with policy and leadership failures that culminated in an American mission and clandestine CIA base being attacked and the murder of our Ambassador and three dedicated Americans doing their jobs. However, the one person responsible for it all is the one man who could have, but refused to, even

Failure to act is indeed treasonous.
Once again, Barky voted “present”.
Everybody who understands the Chain of Authority knows that the “Stand Down” order had to come from POTUS. A couple of retired generals have said that publicly, but the press seems reluctant to pick it up.
As I have mentioned in other threads;
Being they purposely leaked both the IRS and AP scandals, as bad as they are as misdirection, everyone must ask themselves, just how bad is Benghazi even with what we already know?
Ollie North is setting back and just smiling, because in their zeal to “necklace” him and anyone else in the Reagan Administration for Iran-Contra, the laws they passed as a result have come back to hoist them on their own petard.
And this is far more egregious than Iran-Contra. Does anyone wonder why Hitlery has gone underground? She is the one who made the deal to send “stinger” style weapons to the rebels in Libya which is in direct violation of those laws they passed trying to “get” Reagan.
and pls add me to list
I believe that Issa and the House GOP already have that locked down and documented. They have traced the STAND DOWN order back up the chain of command, and into the civilian command authority..into the Oval Office. They’ll close-hold it, while they conduct more interviews and depositions..basic interrogation techniques is that you let the suspect lock himself into a statement.time-line..then drop the bomb on him. The longer this plays out..it’s far better for the GOP..
That’s interesting. I will wait and see if you are correct.
Over at the “Politix” website, they are displaying a photograph released by the White House “Flickr” that claims to be Obama consulting with Biden, Jack Lew, and two other men I do not recognize the evening of Sept. 11 ostensibly after the attack began.
This is the first anyone has heard of a meeting in the White House at all, much less a meeting that includes Biden and Lew.
Despite this being a Sunday evening, all of the men are dressed in dark suits.
I don’t for a minute believe this photo shows what they claim.
Krauthammers Potentially Damaging Theory:

Great link ... Thanks
Actions speak louder than words.
Zippo’s actions on the day of the attack are not those of someone that was surprised by the attack.
No concern whatsoever about what was taking place clearly indicates prior knowledge.
It would be no different than if you were notified your home was being attacked and your family was in danger, yet you calmly went about your business as if nothing was out of the ordinary.
It just doesn’t happen.
The police would consider you suspect #1 in your families murder.
Well we can’t.
And because of his skin color, as Rush has pointed out so many times to the point of boredom, he isn’t going to be held accountable for anything at all.
Sure hope he decides to leave office when his term ends, because if he doesn’t, no one is going to hold him accountable.
and then there are the liberals gearing up to demand zer0 say and be more of zer0. I fully expect a barney frank from our liberal fiends.
You’re getting warm . . . .
Look at the terrorist thought process in planning the attack and Zippo’s actions after the attack began.
They are on the same page.
Terrorist planned the attack with a force unable to take the compound if there was resistance and Zippo tried to guarantee there would be no resistance.
Actions speak louder than words, and not just Zippo’s actions but the terrorist actions.
Two fold. He was supposed to be captured alive. You can find news leaks about two weeks earlier mentioning the administration (State) was talking about finding ways to releasing the Blind Sheik to Egypt. Somebody forgot to tell the terrorists that getting the Ambassador was supposed to include alive. This is what everyone of them expected and why no support sent because it was all to plan.
They couldn’t get to him in the safe room, so they tried to smoke him out by using diesel fuel to accelerate the furniture burning. By now they were pissed with the infusion of adrenaline and lost focus of the mission. But in the following link, what came first, the chicken or the egg. This was all to coverup the DOS gunrunning in direct violation of the Iran-Contra laws.
So, to go to your point, we now know that Hitlery did talk by phone to Barry at about 22:00 hours DC time and then at about 20:30 the first inkling of the video story began to surface in regards to Benghazi as the Cairo excuse was already out there.
Nobody outside of the Marines were at the Cairo Embassy that day. The prepared apology for the video went out from State before the Cairo demonstration started. What is also needed is a better investigation of what went on in Yemen.
“And this is far more egregious than Iran-Contra. “
Your analysis must be true. Just think about how guilty Obama looked on this issue during the debates. This is extra ordinary lying.
Do you think the full nature of this atrocity will be exposed?
” All the President had to say within the first two hours while being briefed by the Secretary of Defense was, Send in a response force. This command, followed by his signature on a paper called Cross Border Authority, would have ordered the Department of Defense to do everything and anything to save lives in Benghazi, Libya”
Travis McGee was the first FReeper to PROVE Obama is 100% responsible for the slaughter.
Obama knew nothing about this screw up, neither than Hillary, it was all Susan Rice's is fault which is why he tried to promote her.
Who? Saudi maybe?
It's an attempt to explain WHY the terrorist choose the to plan or carry out an attack when they do.
The 1st time something almost exactly the same as the “spontaneous” lie was concocted to explain why the terrorist choose the time they do to plan/carry out an attack was in January of 2006.
At that time it was the ACLU with the help of Al Jazera and Osama Bin Laden with the tape he made.
First al Jazera said the tape was made in December then it was changed to January.
In the tape OBL said preparations were being made for another attack.
The idea was to try and make it appear as if OBL had picked up on a news story which appeared at the end of December and bingo, he decided to plan an attack. That was why it was so important to try and make it appear as if the tape was made in January AFTER the news story had appeared in December.
The news story was the ACLU passing out video cameras in St Louise to redo the R King video.
Notice the similarities in the 2 stories.
The reason. The 1st WTC bombing was planned in 1991 with the R King video and the attack was planned to take place with the second trial of the LA police.
In early 2011, the Zippo adm. started targeting the TEA Party with the IRS.
The Zippo WH, dems, and their allies in the MSM began making claims as how the TEA Party was a bunch of racist, KKK, Nazi, ultra violent, Tim McVeigh wanna bees.
On May 1, 2011 there was an attempted car bombing in NYC.
Because it was a fertilizer bomb the dems and their allies in the MSM said their talking points about the TEA Party being ultra violent was accurate.
OOOPS! It was a muslim.
The dems now have a problem. How to explain the attempted bombing matched their talking points to a T.
Here's what I believed happened.
They decided to attempt to recreate the lie they tried to create in 2006 and make it appear as if the terrorist are picking up on news stories then planning their attacks around the news story.
I believe this is the purpose of the terrorist attack that was planned for the plane. It was planned during the dust up created by the MSM with the Travon Martin case.
Exact same pattern. Plan an attack in association with civil unrest.
I believe that was the purpose of having the agent on the plan. Create the lie the terrorist are picking up on news and planning their attack around the news.
The AP screwed up Zippo’s lie.
Enter Benghazi and the “spontaneous” lie.
The spontaneous lie is no more complicated than “the terrorist are so in tune with the news they can pick up on a news story plan and carry out a terrorist attack in a matter of a few minutes, it's spontaneous”.
Because the spontaneous lie is so ridiculous I don't believe they intended for anyone to believe it.
Had the attack gone as planned and the terrorist had taken everyone hostage it would have been a perfect setup to make it appear as if Mitt Romney and the repubs had collaborated with the terrorist to make Zippo look like Peanuts Carter.
I believe the main objective of the attack was to make it appear as if it's the repubs collaborating with the terrorist and set Hillary up for 2016.
