Armed Services Committee Examined Actions Of Military Chain Of Command Before, During, and After Attack
WASHINGTON The House Armed Services Committee today released a series of recently declassified transcripts of briefings on the September 11th 2012 attack on Americans in Benghazi, Libya. The briefings were conducted by the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations then chaired by Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL), though they were open to all members of the Committee and attended by Members off the Committee. The briefings, which took place over the course of several months, were part of the Committees examination of the actions of the military chain of command before, during, and after the attack. A report summarizing the conclusion of the HASC Oversight & Investigations majority Members draw from these briefings is expected to be released later this week.

We’ll if the nightly news covers this or buries it with more Christie,Christie,Christie.
At least some of these transcripts were TS.
Does anyone know who is the final authority for downgrading the classification of these documents from Top Secret to Declassified?
‘Twas a smooth move. Someone deserves credit.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise me or Republicanprofessor.
This is a Threat Matrix list documenting threats within and without. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.
There is sure a lot of redaction in what I read so far.
They all know that we know far more than they want us to.
I thought this Christie problem was the wierdest thing I ever heard. Immediately the person who was responsible was found and fired. I don't watch a lot of tv, but I'm guessing Christie is sucking up all the airtime, which helps obama. I heard someone say more conservatives were backing Christie because of the trouble. This is a win win for both liberals and rino.
News alert; Faux is reporting that justin biebers house was egged.
Also remember how they pissed on the 1st Amendment as cover.
I certainly do not know who to credit on the declassification.
Will however be studying this carefully for things that were not previously admitted.
Today the voting began in Egypt on the new Constitution.
The trials of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood were postponed until Feb 1.
I am looking forward to exposure of Morsi’s connection to Benghazi. And Obama’s connection to financing MB and al Qaeda elements there and in Syria.
Then the question of financing the MB’s rise to power in Egypt.
This is an explosive time for the US and the Middle East.
Candy Crowley is all over this story.
Thank you so much!
There’s no way these transcripts are any where near complete. They are presented in a fashion that lets the military claim they just weren’t in position to do anything quickly. AAAnnnnndddd that immediately gets my BS flag. I heard Gen. Hamm just this morning, finally broke his silence, saying he just had nothing available that he thot could help. He painted a picture of an absolute force vacuum in the entire Gulf of Sidra. That’s pure BS and has been since the early 80’s at least. We typically have upwards of 30 +/- US Navy ships in the general Med. area at any time ( it’s called the US Sixth Fleet). The Kearsarge carrying 900 Marines who can get 200 miles in a hurry, had just been there. Where was it? It never occurred to Hammbutt that at least a flyover might have helped, and certainly couldn’t hurt. It’s almost like no one in the US Military wanted to know what was happening in Libya-—sort of giving it the blind eye treatment.
These incompetent bleepholes doing the talking now are making Armchair Generals look like dynamic war birds.
Hamm is providing cover for Obama and Clinton. The question is, what’s in it for him?
Anyone else get that throbbing artery in your Left temple while reading these stories? A slight reddish haze to your vision? Increased heart rate and a desire to chew right through someones throat?
Or is it just me?
Candy is all over everything IMO
A longer rope?
Regarding the redacted material. Remember a couple years back when it was discovered a simple computer manipulation cleared all of the black so the entire material could be read. Who did that? Sure would come in handy now!
Fox just had this on “The Five”, and poor old Bob Beckel was lost as a mosquito in a tornado.
She's all over anything she gets near.
We should just photoshop it and make it say whatever we think it says...making sure it's obvious. Then let them deny it.
Fake but accurate.
It might be fake, it might not be.
They’re always telling us to “connect the dots” or fill in the blanks.
Good thinkin lol
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I had to actually get a password so I could respond to you. I want to scream! I do not understand why America is not outraged. Keep praying for Sean Smith’s mom’s message and safety.
My bet, Cross Border Authority was denied by Obama....
His weaselly little a$$ is trapped in this Lie. It will be his undoing.
This is not the military responsibility. It belongs to Obozo and Derr Hilderbeast. They own it. Along with the rest of those directly serving the Liar-in-chief.
The military to intentionally not told about this activity, because it was CIA running guns into Syria. Plus.
That is why the survivors are silenced.
I haven’t looked at the .pdfs, but I bet they are flat documents and they have all meta data removed.
Welcome. Will certainly keep her and the other parents in prayer. We actually have a daily thread for prayers for our country and military. Faith will add you to he list if you would like to join us
“Futhermore Chairman McKeon directed this subcommittee to address thoroughly, authoritatively, and conclusively, all matters related to the Benghazi attacks.”
Fine: who issued the standdown order and where was president Øbama?
Absolutely! Let me know. Here is the link for today.
who issued the standdown order and where was president Øbama?
That is obviously why there were so many redactions.
who issued the standdown order and where was president Øbama?"
Merits a tagline update! (with a slight title modificaion)
I’m starting backwards from Dempsey and he sure threw State under the bus but cannot explain why the C-17 took forever to get there and no one ever even addressed why those on the ground were painting targets with a laser for support that never left the ground.
AND WHAT WAS THAT BRAVO SIERRA ABOUT THE DEPT OF STATE REQUIRING THAT THE RESPONSE FORCE STOP AND CHANGE OUT OF THEIR UNIFORMS??????????????
Mr. Chaffetz, Dempsey transcript pp 50-51
Contradictions and missing pieces always happen with Liars like Obozo and Derr Hilderbeast.
Added the last two words to mine this week
But am sending/dropping the above meme wherever it will fit!
Got contact addresses for WH press corp?
> A report summarizing the conclusion of the HASC Oversight & Investigations majority Members draw from these briefings is expected to be released later this week.
save for later.
All part of his reelection campaign. Romney would have won if the truth came out.
No, I don't. But if you have a list, I'd be mighty obliged if you could either post it or FRmail it to me. I'd like to send such out to all of the people in my address book, so they can ask the questions about the standdown order and Zero's whereabouts that fateful night also.
Known e-mail documents could be compared.
Thanks for the observation. Those details in the right hands under the right eyes can reveal a lot.
I downloaded the .pdfs
Will look at the internals.
