Horror! Ambassador Stevens Called for Help During Benghazi Attack …(But Obama Did Nothing)

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) told Greta Van Susteren on Wednesday that Ambassador Chris Stevens called for help when the consulate came under attack on 9-11. The ambassador made calls to the Deputy Chief of Mission Gregory Hicks in Tripoli. Chaffetz talked about this tonight On the Record,

“He said shortly after 9:40 PM what happened is his phone rang and he didn’t recognize the number so he didn’t answer it. And then it rang again and again he didn’t answer it because he didn’t recognize the number. But then given the persistence he did answer it. It was Ambassador Stevens and Ambassador Stevens was saying we’re under attack. Now I can’t say he told me specifically but that’s kind of what I read into it. he hung up the phone and immediately called into Washington DC to trigger all the mechanisms that need to be put on. And then he wasn’t able to contact him. And there were hours and hours that we didn’t know where our ambassador was.”

Ambassador Stevens called for help – But Obama never called in troops.

    the truth always reveals itself, always..

    President Obama, this is one scenario you cannot draw
    your way out of no matter how many natural disasters
    you star in..

  • Obama wanted to leave them there to die. For reasons that are uncertain. Possibly him not wanting the fiction of a defeated Al Qaeda to die in the attack.

  • TXPatriot

    Makes Obama’s statement about “we leave no one behind” all the more galling. He knows what happened, every detail of it, and he’s lying right to our faces and has for almost two months now.

  • woody313

    What do you mean he did nothing? He voted ‘present’, what did you expect?

  • GotFreedom

    America, can you even imagine what a second BHO term will be like. . . if he would let someone as important as Amb. Stevens die, imagine what he’d do to the likes of you and me!

    With this liar-in-chief more interested in “spiking the football” and posing for photo ops, these poor people in Benghazi never had a chance. . .

  • GotFreedom

    And thank you to Rep. Chaffetz for continuing to hunt down the truth. . .watch your back though. . .this is a ruthless bunch you are exposing and nothing is beneath them!!!

  • Peter Warner

    This raises a bucket full of new questions.

    Stevens had a phone that his assistant wasn’t familiar with, and he couldn’t be called back by his assistant after that one call. His assistant contacted Washington.

    Was Stevens out of contact with Washington?

    Was Stevens unable to initiate the alarm process himself?

    This is so frustrating- some reports say that the two defenders WALKED to the consulate from the annex, and even later WALKED back, that it was a half-mile away, not a full mile. Other sources, supposedly the latest, say they rode a mile to the consulate in armored vehicles.

    There are so many loose ends, some reports days behind others. Only the mil blogs and retired military blogs seem to be aggressive in getting information.

    Are there any journalists in the main stream media? There should be hundreds focused on this story.

    Frustrated, Peter Warner.

    Peter is entirely correct. There is absolutely no investigative journalist, except on Fox.

  • shibumi

    Obama left our people to die. Why isn’t there anyone talking about impeachment?

  • If there is no official higher than the President, then whom do We the People call, when the President commits murder x4 by proxy? What do we need to get an impeachment and trial under way? Is the system that corrupted that we cannot bring this man to justice?

    Obvious that Obungle and the media are stalling on this — too inflammatory this close to election. If American people learned the truth – that the President and Secretary of Defense just ignored pleas for help and did nothing – Romney wins in landslide and Obama faces prosecution for his cowardice and deceit.

    Obungle may live to regret uttering that line ” we leave no one behind ” .

    I just can’t figure out what this President is going to have to do to lose the support of the MSM. It’s really becoming ridiculous ….

    If Ambassador Stevens was using his Turkish alliance to transfer weapons from Libya to Islamic Fascist forces that were in cahoots with al-Qaeda and acting as rebels against the Syrian government, then to what degree were Obama, Clinton, Panetta, and Petraeus involved?

    Were members of the Obama administration arming al-Qaeda, our sworn Islamic Fascist enemy that is dedicated to the destruction of America?

    CIA director David Petraeus has denied that he or anyone else at the CIA refused assistance to the Navy Seals who requested it three times as terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate. Petraeus’ denial implicates Barack Obama.

    Did Obama deny the requests to engage? He is the one with the ultimate power, and it looks like he allowed our fellow Americans to be murdered.

    Did he issue a directive to all the other operators all the way down the chain of command that there were NOT to respond?

    When Obama was asked by a reporter whether or not Americans under fire were denied requests for help, he dodged the question, even when it was repeated.

    18 USC § 2381defines treason:

    “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

    Even if Obama steals this election, he cannot be allowed to hold our highest office. He must be tried for treason.

    I guess the American voter will hopefully learn that voting has consequences.
    The only thing that seems to catch the interest of voters over the last couple of cycles is dancing with the stars and free cell phones.

  • Balto2

    The investigative journalists should be doing a real lot of digging and reporting on this…. times have sure changed since the day of the JFK or Bobby Kennedy assassinations, just an example. Since it is their baby in the White House, they pamper and adore him and will not do anything to expose what is going on. This is in my mind due to to main reasons… 1. Obama is untouchable due to owners of the stations and 2. it is an election and they want Obama back in as they are all liberals if it is the alphabet news except for FOX and even FOX has been limited due to their station owners. It is getting too close to the election not to bring all this out to the public so better knowledge is available before pulling the lever for our next president. All involved need to be charged as traitors and punished. These people in Washington are ruthless and it will only expand in a much grander scale.

  • squeaky

    i read an account given by one of the libyan guards and there were atleast 2 black americans. i guess obama is equal opportunity as he was willing to let them hang out to dry with their melanin deprived counterparts.

  • squeaky

    no doubt about it…some folks will be voting obama for what they think he will do for them. the idea that he may have left people to die to protect his self interest won’t register with them. their moral high ground being something they whip out when it suits their interest.

    Just read this over on American Thinker . . . Obama has completely destabilized and undermined every single thing that American diplomacy has accomplished in the Middle East in nearly a century.

    “No problem as long as the “FREE” cell phones, school lunch, cheese, birth control and unemployment keep coming.” some people just can’t think outside the box. i had to argue with one of my friends [professional] who couldn’t quite grasp the idea that if the country is broke the promise of his guaranteed retirement isn’t guaranteed. promised or not. obviously he never heard of empty promises.

    I find it amazing lately the number of so called “professional” and “intelligent” people who just don’t seem to grasp the fact that we are broke. Yes, all these things are “nice” but you can’t pay for them with thin air.

    No wonder we have so many people in huge credit card debt.

    Remember this article about the weapons factory explosion in the Sudan from a few days ago?

    Well THIS certainly sheds some light on that .. .

    From what I’ve read, Obama went to bed instead of monitoring the Benghazi situation. If this is true, the public has to know about that prior to election day!

    It’s been said that Obama went to bed instead of monitoring the Benghazi situation. If this is true, the public has got to know this!

  • Doug Rodrigues

    Opps, sorry. I thought the first comment didn’t post.

  • squeaky

    a lot of youtubes come through here so this may be old hat. something i was thinking about earlier and voila’…….the longer obama stretches this out the more pain for the families.

  • Criminally negligent manslaughter …
    … occurs where there is an omission to act when there is a duty to do so, or a failure to perform a duty owed, which leads to a death The existence of the duty is essential because the law does not impose criminal liability for a failure to act unless a specific duty is owed to the victim. It is most common in the case of professionals who are grossly negligent in the course of their employment.

    So, who would that apply to?

    It appears that for weeks before the attack in Benghazi, we had plenty of warnings in the form of:
    1) Other attacks
    2) The importance of the anniversary of 9/11.
    3) The Brits closing their consulate and pulling their people out of the area.

    (But, of course, what would the Brits know? They’ve only had centuries of experience at this sort of thing. And of Special Ops – our Delta Force is largely modeled on their SAS. So why should we take any heed of their actions?)

    During the attack, we had real-time intel from two Navy SEALS at the site providing all the info needed for support that never came. One of them was even using a laser to designate a mortar location for a gunship that never showed up.

    We had a Predator drone overhead, providing live television of the event.

    And our boy who would be King was watching all this in the Situation Room.

    We had assets in Italy (and also on the John Stennis Carrier Group) that could have been sent in for support and rescue. Units created for that very purpose — It’s what they DO!

    They just had to be ordered in.

    But, they never were.

    I believe, to the depths of my soul, that Barack Obama (like a deer in the headlights) simply froze and could not make the decision to act. Perhaps he was fearful of another Blackhawk Down incident less than four weeks before election.

    It’s a Hell of a tough job, and one could sympathize.

    BUT …

    George Soros conspiracy theories to the contrary, Barack Obama was not drafted into his job.

    He actively sought it and succeeded in putting himself there.

    A position he was not remotely qualified to occupy.

    And this is the result: Four Americans dead.

    How different is it really from driving while under the influence and killing someone while doing so.

    When it was necessary, when his duty required him to act, he defaulted to doing what he does best: nothing.

    But, the very next day, he took action.

    He flew to Las Vegas for a fundraiser.

  • bigL

    I would like to know if the drone, the US drone ovehaed that was providing THE vid feed,
    was armed. And if armed, were any of those missles fired into the compound What was the target?

    Let me be clear, I lied! You should be used to it by now! I blame Hillary Clinton! It’s all her fault!

    Who cares about American Ambassadors? Who cares about Americans? I don’t! I care about getting the Muslim vote!

    My limo and my job are at stake! I need the Muslim vote in Ohio and Michigan! Without those states I am done – stick a fork in me!

    If you like the way I manipulate everybody from my donors to my to my Hollywood Wood Talking Heads then vote for me. And, this is important. Send me $3,666.00 before midnight. My campaign is going broke!

    I have been to all of the 57 states! And, dog-gone-it, I am happy to say those three words: “Free Absentee Ballots for Everyone In the USA!”

    Vote early and vote often! If not, I am going to lose! You won’t have Barky 0bama to kick around any more! My donor’s suck worse than my campaign! Good riddance.

  • thesouth

    Hes a black muslim. They were white God fearing Americans. End of story.

  • Now I’m not saying anything, but if the guy in charge of the TRIPOLI embassy doesn’t recognize Ambassador Stevens FREAKING PHONE NUMBER, then BEING STUPID must be a gift for those bureaucrats!!

    We program numbers in all the time, and we aren’t diplomatic experts with concerns over security.

    So what number was he calling from? Why would a deputy in charge of a mission not answer a call? Was he worried about getting Obama election Robo calls? He’s a man in a nation full of trouble in a key position. His number isn’t public knowledge. Getting a call on it means it is probably important.

    Jeezz.. I mean, can they dress themselves?

    All of the facts will come to light at some point. Obama’s fear of stepping on the toes of the Libyan people caused him to balk, when American lives were relying on him. He is to blame and some in the State Dept should be held responsible. I can’t personally say whether anything criminal has occurred, but there is definitely unimaginable negligence and deception pouring from the White House. Our President has to be able to lead and must protect American lives FIRST! Obama has failed.

  • CarolT

    This info has to be on the MSM so that everyone knows what a lying POTUS we have. Anyone that votes to reelect him is voting for a man that aided and abetted the murder of four American Citizens. Hillary Clinton must resign today, the entire admin belongs in jail. Donilon is a liar, Panetta, all of them lied and I am furious about this.
    Can you imagine the fury of the families? I’m glad Tyrone Woods father was on various radio and televisions shows last weekend. I believe he said that they looked at him with cold, dead eyes. I can’t remember who he said shook hands like a cold, dead fish!

    America – Fire Obama!

    The MSM is just as culpable in this cover up as the boy pres. When the truth does come out, and it will, Obama will not be in office. What happens then?
    Apparently, the boy pres cares nothing about his legacy because this will be the mark that determines it. Funny, he thought passing Obamacare was such a big f**king deal. That will be one under Pres. Romney, and Behghazi will take its place.

  • Ron

    Here is a good reason for Obama to deny help to the embassy… how about a gun running scheme gone bad. There are several sources including Israel who have postulated that Steven’s was meeting with the Turks… just prior to the raid to seal the final details on transporting guns for AL Qaeda elements fighting in Syria… Al Qaeda? Why is our President interfering in the internal affairs of a sovereign state and more importantly arming Al Qaeda and other radical Islamic groups in the Mid-East?

    I believe when this all shakes out… Obama’s Administration will be shown making deals with radical Islam… in Libya, the Sudan, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and generally wherever Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brother Hood and other elements of radical Islam have operatives.

    There was no spontaneous ARAB SPRING… Arab democrat uprising… just as there was no video that spawn the assault on our Consulate in Libya.

  • kristine2375

    While I agree not helping was horrific, I know first hand that jot everything is black and white. My husband is military Nd not every circumstance can be avoided. I wasn’t there I don’t know Obamas motives but I do know that there are always.propped in his ear looking at every angle….maybe for the safety of other troops or Americans he did what he had to do. We may never know why…but we cannot tear him down for what.must have been a decision that must weigh heavy on his heart.

  • Sparky

    Essentially, Obama, through his dereliction of duty, aided in the murder of an Ambassador and three American soldiers.

    Somehow I do not feel much outrage from the Republican Party and people like Boehner and McConnell.

    Obama gets away with all he does because people do not protest and publicly hold him accountable.

    Without even the few checks and balances on him, Obama would be an outright dictator and Mooch would have 4,000 outfits in her closet!

    They belong in prison doing hard time for life! DON’T call the MILITARY if/when you NEED the military??? WHAT??? This comment, from leading officials of the WH, is … is … there are no words low enough.

    “CIA officers poised to intervene in the attacks were twice told “to ‘stand down’ rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard,” Fox News reported.

    These reports have put the administration on defense, leading senior White House officials to claim that the U.S. military is not a “911 rescue number,” according to the Washington Post’s David Ignatius.”
