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..


  2. 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.

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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. . .

  6. 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!!!

  7. 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.

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

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

  10. 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?

  11. 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 ” .

  12. 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 ….

  13. 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.

  14. 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.
