BOMBSHELL: US Security Forces Would Not Have Been Painting Targets on Ground Unless There Was Air Support Overhead – But White House Called It Off

BOMBSHELL: US troops in Benghazi would not have been painting targets on the ground unless there was air support overhead.
But someone called it off – And the decision most likely came from the White House.

FOX News reported earlier today that security officers on the ground in Benghazi had a laser planted on a target that was firing on the annex.

The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Spectre gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights.

So there were two drones in the air recording the attack on the ground. And now we know the CIA team at the annex was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. The White House was able to watch the attack live back in Washington DC. Yet, yesterday Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said this,

“The U.S. military did not get involved during the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month because officials did not have enough information about what was going on before the attack was over.”

How much more information did they need?

Then there’s this bombshell at BlackFive from a former Delta operator:

Having spent a good bit of time nursing a GLD (ground Laser Designator) in several garden spots around the world, something from the report jumped out at me.

One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a briefing pointer laser. You do not “paint” a target until the weapons system/designator is synched; which means that the AC130 was on station.

Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on information directly from the target area.

If the AC130 never left Sigonella (as Penetta says) that means that the Predator that was filming the whole thing was armed.

If that SEAL was actively “painting” a target; something was on station to engage! And the decision to stand down goes directly to POTUS!

This is HUGE.
It should be obvious by now that someone is not telling the truth.
As Blackfive says,

“This is bigger than Watergate!… The worst has to be the team on the ground knowing that the President just left you to die.

A caller today discussed this with Rush Limbaugh.
Via the Right Scoop:

Here is part of that conversation.

CALLER: Well, there’s three networks, Rush. The e-mails that have been released are unclassified e-mails. On the top secret side, a flash traffic message from the embassy Tripoli to the White House Situation Room, it’s like an IM. I mean, it’s immediately responded to. You have to acknowledge receipt of it. Okay? So it’s immediate. It gets to the person, the watch officer sitting there, boom, flashes on his screen, he has to acknowledge receipt. And then there’s a protocol for who he then sends it to. He physically turns to someone, the senior guy on watch, “This is a critical element of information. POTUS needs to hear this,” and that’s what would have happened.

So no one in the White House can deny that — well, they can deny it, but the fact is the protocol says someone marched their happy little ass up to the senior guy standing next to POTUS and said, “Sir, ambassador in Libya is in peril.” And if he was missing, that is even a higher precedence. And then the chain would have also gone out automatically to the geographic combatant commander, AFRICOM, and he would have then turned to his special operations commander and said, “I want the In-Extremis Force, you know, strip ready in five minutes.” And evidently they were strip ready in Sigonella and they would have the assets to penetrate the airspace, you know, an MC-130 papa, which is a C-130 specially equipped with electronic countermeasures. They didn’t need permission to enter Libyan airspace, okay?

I’m giving you a lot of Inside Baseball stuff, and maybe putting myself in a little peril by doing it, but the In-Extremis Force, they would have been chomping at the bit to do this. It was turned down, POTUS, at his five p.m. Eastern time meeting with the principals, that’s when he put the kibosh on everything. It was a conscious act. It has to be because, you know, the In-Extremis Force is required to be prepared to do In-Extremis non-combatant evacuation operations for its geographic responsibility, the entire continent of Africa. So there’s always somebody ready to go, and the aircraft are always prepared to go.

    Obama watched them die and then he lied and lied and lied and lied and lied

  • bigkahuna

    I bet if it was his Fat@ss wife Moochelle or his kids there under fire Obama would have moved heavan and earth to save them…. But since it was just some lowly soldiers and staff they were expendable. He had a campaign event in vegas and a party somewhere to attend to.

    Freaking creep needs to be put in jail.

  • bigkahuna

    Exactly… Obama lied, People died and he lied, Hillary Lied , Jay Carney Fife lied, UN Embastard lied, and it goes on non stop.

    People wake up vote this clown out before he is impeached and imprisoned

  • Militant Conservative

    Holy crap, the sync of the laser and the drone/spectere on site is a hell of a bombshell.

    Hey Obama, Here’s your suprise. Eat it up punk.

  • mg4us

    This is far far worse than Watergate. . no one died there. . .

    And as Commander-in-Chief, He should be held to the standards of the military code of Justice:
    He abandoned his post and was derelict in his duties by abandoning his troops who requested help and support.

    As such he should be tried and court marshaled.

    He is a disgrace to all our men and women in uniform and violated his oath to protect and serve.

  • Spectre’s Hammer

    Those responsible should be given a fair & speedy trial followed by a first class hangin’.

  • usamopatriot

    In a just world, this would cook the POTUS’s goose.

  • Buffalobob

    obama spike the football, ahh, ahhh , ahh I killed Ben Laddle, or something. This nitwit couldn’t make a decisive decision without Valerie Jarrett’s pulling his Tampax string..

  • mg4us

    Oh and two other names should be tried for treason. . .
    Valerie Jarrett and David AxelRod

    They were telling Obama no. .just like they said no three times on Bin-Laden

    We need Trust & Truth in Washington. . .
    Someone who CAN get the job done
    Not Embolden our Enemies
    And allow our Embassies to be Over-run
    And our Ambassador, Servicemen, and citizens slaughtered
    Especially when they ask for help.

    Vote to throw him out. . .and all his Czars!

  • Ghost

    the thought is already out there and totally believable:
    it was a botched kidnapping,
    the plan was for president punkass to swap with Egypt- our Ambassador for the ‘Blind Sheik’.

  • GregInSeattle

    Justice will catch up with the cowardly C-in-C, Hillary, Biden & Holder eventually…. It’s got to, or the rule of law is in serious jeopardy here in the US.

  • myohmy

    Obama’s presidency is toast. The only reason this guy has not resign because the media is more obsessed to protect a president who is a democrat by name only.

  • regularguy

    This sounds pretty logical and accurate. This sociopathic President wrote those SEALs off. They weren’t even there to provide security, as I understand it, but went out there to save that Ambassador, who was left out there to die. This is your president who is capable of cold, calculating murder.

    Again, nothing will happen. This administration has been breaking law after law and skirting the constitution, paying political supporters off with tax dollars and lying about Fast and Furious and our ineffective congress does nothing. They just wring their hands and sigh “woe is me”. The DOJ is as corrupt as the White House so no help there. What a sad state of affairs this country has sunk to.

  • Obamalony

    How can this be? President Obama said today in answer to a local interviewer that his first response when he learned about this was to make sure everyone was safe and committed to an investigation and criminal prosecution of whomever was responsible.

    For two weeks, he and his administration told us the video guy was responsible. Secretary of State Clinton even told the father of a fallen Marine that they were gonna get that video bastard jailed.

    What C-130 gunship? What painting of targets? Was this in the movie about the Prophet?

  • lizzy84

    God help us.
    Please…….haul oBama and hIllary in to testify under oath before Congress.
    There simply is no reason to wait.

    Romney needs to an issue a statement to the press — a pledge if you will — stating in no uncertain terms that ANYONE IN HIS ADMINISTRATION WHO LIES TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OR IS CAUGHT MANIPULATING DATA WILL BE FIRED IMMEDIATELY.
