DEVASTATING! CBS Publishes Benghazi Investigation Pummels Administration
thegatewaypundit.com ^ | 5-5-2013 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 05/05/2013 5:24:41 PM PDT by servo1969

CBS released information on the Benghazi 9-11 massacre today that could potentially bring down the Obama Administration.

Buried in their report (down in paragraph eight) CBS reported, “Throughout the night, sources say Americans on the ground in Libya at times felt helpless and abandoned… But they were told immediate help wasn’t available.” But, counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help. CBS reported:

Throughout the night, sources say Americans on the ground in Libya at times felt helpless and abandoned.

“We relied on Washington for dispassionate assessment,” one eyewitness told CBS News. “Instead, they [Washington officials] were asking us what help we needed. We answered: ‘Send reinforcements!’ ”

But they were told immediate help wasn’t available.

Embassy personnel say they repeatedly asked the Defense Attache on site in Tripoli for military assistance.

“Isn’t there anything available?” one Embassy official says he asked. “But the answer was ‘no.’”

“What about Aviano?” the official pressed, referencing the NATO air base with US assets in northeastern Italy. “No,” was the answer.

Two of the four Americans killed that night died hours after the first attack began…

…Counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help in the attack. National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Vietor told CBS News the CSG was not needed.

Should obama be involved in killing a gay ambassador,one he knew quite possibly intimately from his Chicago bathhouse days,it could get nasty for the regime.

* * *

Your post sparked a question in me, one I had never considered before: Did Obama in fact know Ambassador Stevens from his Bathhouse Barry days? Was it then perhaps not premeditated, but AWFULLY convenient when Stevens was about to be offed, and could therefore no longer spill any beans? I went looking, and I found an article (see below). It says that Stevens was “roommates” in the 1970’s with one Austin Tichenor, who at the time of the writing of the article, lived and worked ... yes... in Chicago!! Was it possible Stevens visited his old bud Tichenor at some later time, maybe the 1990’s, and got a firsthand eyeful of Bathhouse Barry’s activities? Okay, that’s a lot of imagination going on, but I wish I had the dough to hire a private investigator to find out!

I tend to believe your take is close to the real choo-choo train of involvement. However, for me Soros is just the trains conductor. I am just as interested in the train and track owners. I’d bet the owners are more like internationally known power brokers. The extent of the cabal that put Obama in position to be elected POTUSA is being hidden.

Well that doofus democrat yapping to Wallace is about 7 months behind the curve. That very subject already came up in the first round of hearings and get corrected immediately.

The funds were there and dang, I can’t recall the rest at 2am. But that line of thinking was already out and beat to death.

I think it has something to do with Sharyl Atkinson and her contract coming up before its due date which is reportedly the end of 2013. She apparently wants out of CBS. rumors are She wants to go to the Blaze with Glen Beck—what a hell of a combo that would make.CBS is probably digging their own grave as we speak.

What I find interesting is the total and complete silence from the gays. One of their own was murdered. I guess they are still trying to figure out who trumps who. Dear friend of all gays leader Obama or their own personal cause?

Trust me, if Bush was president, we'd never hear the end of it from LGBTranny population. The wailing and cries of homophobia, bigotry etc. etc. would be non-stop.

If the House were to pass a bill of impeachment, it will fail spectacularly in the Senate and the flying crap would land on the House Republicans.

Exactly. Failure in the Senate = not guilty = acquitted = wrongfully accused = racism.

I'd rather see him prosecuted for treason when he leaves office, but no Republican administration would have the guts to do it.
