Skip to comments.Valerie Jarrett Gave Benghazi Stand-Down Order (Possibly)

Scandal: The omnipresent power behind the throne some have called the president's Rasputin had the power to call off three strikes against Osama bin Laden. She may have used that power again the night four Americans died in Benghazi.
The Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, came while America failed to mount a rescue mission despite sufficient time and assets. Included in that disaster were the unaccounted whereabouts of President Obama during eight critical hours, the lack of Situation Room photos, the failure by the president to follow up with subordinates before his trip to Las Vegas and the fabricated story that the whole thing was prompted by an Internet video.
Columnist Charles Krauthammer said recently on "The O'Reilly Factor" that the "biggest scandal of all" regarding that Benghazi slaughter has yet to emerge.
"I think there is a bigger story here ... that will in time come out," Krauthammer said. "The biggest scandal of all, the biggest question is: What was the president doing in those eight hours?"
The columnist noted: "He had a routine meeting at 5 o'clock. He never after, during the eight hours when our guys have their lives in danger, he never called the secretary of defense, he never calls the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, he never calls the CIA director."
One of the people Obama always talks to is Valerie Jarrett. She emerged from the same Chicago cauldron of radicalism where Obama got his ideological baptism.

Of course she gave the order, Barry was so coked up he couldn’t tie his shoes!

Prison for Valerie - usurping the President’s Constitutional powers
Do we absolutely know that there was a stand-down order? Or was there simply an unmistakable lack of a Go order?
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
But we were told that only the Preezy had the authority to order that stand down ...oh...wait...I see now...
Amen to that.
The gallows for both of them.
THEY couldn’t allow a rescue, whatever the plan was, it was already in action as arranged, which is why the POTUS continued with his evening. His highness was intentionally unavailable, no fingerprints.
She does look like the devil, doesn’t she?
People can say whatever they want, but it’s my take Hillary Clinton was in this up to her eyeballs on 09/11/2012. This woman likes to take charge, and I think she thought this was her area of “expertise” (or mandate), and I think she drove this operation.
Nope. It was Obama. He is the Occupier.
It’s amazing how realistic and how similar she looks to that reptile. She’s a darn good match.
Who would have listened to Jarrett? Had I been that task force commander I would have insisted on getting the order directly form the so-called President. I’ve I didn’t, we’d have gone. “We’ve gotta do what’s right!”
Yep, I believe Obummer and Hillary were in it together, Jarrett may have advised Zero to make it that way for cover and then everything went to heck.
“she has her father’s eyes”
It’s my take that Jarrett is taking heat now so as to clear Hillary for the run. This is so typical of the Clintons over the years. They use up associates like toilet paper...
Excellent graphic my FRiend, the personification of evil.
And who didn’t KNOW this?
This is NOT news.
Jarrett owns the “ba!!s” in the WH. She runs the place.
If this is NEWS to you, you really aren’t up to snuff.
Not even a little bit.
If I look back, I can probably find where I said this when it first happened. But that really doesn’t matter now.
And for the same purpose!!

Maybe the REAL thing they are trying to hide is that Obama did go to bed and it was really Valerie Jarrett calling the shots.
That would make Obama actually look like a puppet who is allowed to take outrageous vacations and play golf all the time, while an unelected person is making all the decisions in Obama's name, without Obama's involvement or participation.
THAT would make people step back and ask why Obama is even there, if others are doing all the work.
This wouldn't be a case of an "executive" President (like Reagan was reported to be) who actively lays out strategic parameters and let's his subordinates work out the actual details. This would be a case of a completely disengaged President who is not participating in the daily rigors of the job.
Same thread, the debate continues...
So you say Obama ordered the stand-down, and I say that Obama was disengaged and Valerie Jarrett ordered the stand-down, even though she is not in the chain-of-command. The end result is the same, the order to stand down.
If Obama left it to Jarrett and then walked away, it would be extreme deriliction of duty. Obama is the President, not Jarrett. Obama convinced 50 million people to vote for him just weeks after this happened, not Jarrett.
If Obama was found to have lied to the American people in order to win the election, and then cover it up after he won, and if the MSM and the people behave as they have in the past (Nixon covering up the break-in), then Obama SHOULD be forced from office. Americans don't like blatent stealing and cheating from their leaders.
And especially if it was the election that the People feel was won on false pretenses, not stolen votes.
The debate goes on...
Still, my point is this: If Obama did not give any order - stand-down or go - because he wasn't there and it was Jarrett giving the order, would Panetta accept that as legal chain-of-command? Would the Generals?
I think that's our disagreement. You are saying that Obama did give the order, because he must have due to the chain-of-command standing down. I am saying that a differnt chain-of-command was accepted, with Jarrett, not an absent Obama, calling the shots.
And everyone accepted it as Constitutional and authorative.
Got it. Default inaction.
I would have hoped to see people try harder to get Obama into the game. I can't beleve that a "Do Not Disturb" sign hanging from Obama's door was enough to stop the most powerful military in the world.
I'm sure that sent a very clear message to our enemies about how America will react to aggessions. Just do it after 9:00PM ET on a weeknight.

More like, Jarrett said don't wake him up because he has a big day tomorrow in Las Vegas.
Still, taking that from Jarrett is a de facto order to stand-down, if that was what was the standing default order. It's the same thing: Panetta took unconstitutional orders from Jarrett, not Obama. He should have walked right past her and knocked on Obama's door himself.
I still wonder if Obama was absent and others (Jarrett?) gave "orders" that were followed in Obama's name?
Spot on. The clown couple would be looking up at the sod from wooden boxes before their creator and controller takes the fall. VJ made em and VJ can unmake em. Poignant and tragic end to a vacation and hello PresBiden.
Why do you think The Won refused to give up his BlackBerry?
He needs it to get orders from his masters.

Sorry Hillary. It appears as though we already have our first female presdent.
Headline doesnt really deliver what it promises does it?
Seems like they mention where the lady was born and then have two guys (Chip and Klein) say something about her.
Want the truth? —well, that’s national security. Just ask Linthee and John, Congress will cover this up as much as O’Bama needs them to.
LOL! Now that’s funny, and true.
That’s exactly why I added possibly.

Well she is the resident, er. sort of.
That’s what I think... Jarrett just refused to allow anyone to contact BHO. In effect, that’s a “stand down”.. cause, it means NO PERMISSION to ‘go’.
OK....say she did. Who fires her?

I’d guess Soros but it ain’t gonna happen.
What does her job description say? Are we paying her?
Fox News showed a clip tonight of Hillary at a podium speaking, with Obama off to her right looking on. With the wind in her now long hair, all I could think of was Medusa.
Not likely. The Chicago thugocracy hates bill and hill. They basically put up with one another but not by choice.
It's more likely that CIA is taking the full hit for all of the goings on at Benghazi. Its just too easy.
All they do is blame everything on an op they won't eve have to disclose/acknowledge although it has leaked all over,(and we thought we were so cunning to discover the arms smuggling by Stevens. It was meant to be discovered all along IMHO!!,) the gunrunning done by Stevens.
Once its CIA nobody has to say anything about any of the event that happens.They can all hide behind secrecy. Right up the regimes alley.
If you check into it Jarrett even has Secret Service protection that’s quite a feat for an “aide”.
