Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and many others in the Obama administration were aware from the moment these attacks began (or nearly) that the assaults were terrorist by nature.
Obama, Biden and Panetta were in the Oval Office together when emails dispatched from the State Department to the White House and various members of the intelligence and national security agencies alerting all to the terrorist attacks taking place in Benghazi. See Fox News video followed by copies of the emails below:
– SBU = Sensitive But Unclassified
– COM = Chief of Mission/embassy
– Ansar al-Sharia = Islamic military group affiliated to Al Qaeda according to the State Department
They fought for their lives for seven hours. 9/11/ 2012. Benghazi. The White House watched. No help was sent and they died.
Four Americans died in the jihadi attack on our consulate in Benghazi. Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, two retired SEALS who were working as civilian security specialists in Benghazi, learned that Ambassador Stevens and nine other people at the consulate were under attack and rushed to their defense. The fourth man was Sean Smith, father of three, an Air Force veteran, working for the State Department in Libya.
The White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, and our military monitored the battle in real time starting with the first phone calls directly from Benghazi.
A small military force from Tripoli was dispatched and was able to rescue some personnel hiding in other buildings. Ambassador Stevens remained missing, as did these three men. The fire-fight raged on….
…The battle was sent on streaming video direct to the Situation Room in the White House. Within two hours, emails from Benghazi reported that Al Qaeda in Libya was claiming responsibility….”
Barack Obama had seven hours to act. Instead, Obama immediately making it political put his self-interests first, i.e., getting re-elected and did nothing.
Because Obama refused to send in the cavalry, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were murdered during the final hour of battle. These two brave Americans should be alive today.
As reported by Fox News, that CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say (excerpts below).
Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators twice to ‘stand down…’
…CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood, though, denied the claims that requests for support were turned down.
‘We can say with confidence that the Agency reacted quickly to aid our colleagues during that terrible evening in Benghazi,’ she said. ‘Moreover, no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. In fact, it is important to remember how many lives were saved by courageous Americans who put their own safety at risk that night-and that some of those selfless Americans gave their lives in the effort to rescue their comrades….’
As the truth continues to reveal itself, the findings become more unsettling by the minute and the actions of those who could have saved the lives of four Americans are that much more despicable.
So what are the odds that Obama slept well that night?
