Gingrich: Major Networks Are Holding Emails From White House Canceling Plans to Assist Benghazi Heroes on 9-11 (Video)

Newt Gingrich told Greta Van Susteren last night that there are rumors that the major news networks have emails proving the Barack Obama White House canceled plans to assist US personnel on the ground in Benghazi on 9-11.

The Daily Caller reported:

On Tuesday night’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” on the Fox News Channel, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that major news networks might have secret emails proving that the White House canceled plans to assist the besieged U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.

Gingrich said that the bombshell emails could be revealed within the next two days.

There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down,” Gingrich said. “But they were a group in real-time trying to mobilize marines and C-130s and the fighter aircraft, and they were told explicitly by the White House stand down and do nothing. This is not a terrorist action. If that is true, and I’ve been told this by a fairly reliable U.S. senator, if that is true and comes out, I think it raises enormous questions about the president’s role, and Tom Donilon, the National Security Adviser’s role, the Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who has taken it on his own shoulders, that he said don’t go. And that is, I think, very dubious, given that the president said he had instructions they are supposed to do everything they could to secure American personnel.”

    If true, this is treason.

  • open society

    Treason charges can be applied to those who conspire against the American people, not just those who perpetrated the act.

    Until Americans punish this criminal news media for its absolute corruption, holding it accountable in a manner perhaps similar to how it holds financial analysts, CFOs and CEOs for factually reporting (and not withholding) material information merely about a company’s condition, the country will be screwed by these radical progressive party members who masquerade as journalists, editors and publishers.

    This is WORSE….Better to tell people from the beginning you are on your own….than mislead the men on the ground that help is on the way …then cancel it. Tyron Woods was wasting his time pointing lasers on targets that were never going to be bombed, and gave the enemy a light source to target. He might have survived on his own if he had been told the truth.

    This entire regime is a walking RICO statute just waiting for the right prosecutor. After all this, no one can tell us that there isn’t collusion between gov’t, media, and academia. This whole administration stinks to high heaven. Thanks for all your “help” CONgress.

    “Act of Terror”

    October 29, 2012

    The Right Question Is – “Why?”

    [The question is not why did Obama, et al, move to cover
    up and obfuscate the circumstances surrounding the attack.

    The question is why was Stevens allowed to be killed and why were
    Smith, Woods and Doherty allowed to become collateral fatalities?
    That is the question we need answered. That is the question that
    the media isn’t asking.]


    Gingrich: If media is right that Ohio is key, Romney wins

    [Many Missourians seem to think a six second verbal mistake
    is not as damaging as a six year liberal voting record.

    A recent local newspaper poll showed Akin behind 45-43. If you are
    an incumbent senator, and you have thrown the kitchen sink at your
    opponent, and only 45 percent are for you, you have a big problem.
    Romney is likely to carry Missouri by 13 percent or more. That gives
    Akin a real opportunity to win.]

    Even if it’s BS, it’s way past time to take off the gloves and get down and dirty and play the game the way they do. It’s time for all the non-official campaigners to start any and every dirty trick and rumor we can think up. This is war, not playground kickball.

    This is NOT all the fault of “CONgress”. With the House firmly in Republican control and the Senate firmly under the thumb of Harry Reid, who is in cohoots with the White House, there is not all the much Congress can do.

    Witness the budget that Congress is legally required to produce annually. The House of Representatives has been writing budgets every year. Reid flatly refuses to bring any budget up for a vote in the Senate.

    As long as Harry Reid is in control of the Senate, that will be the status quo. Don’t like it? Move heaven and earth to help elect Republicans to the Senate – and while you are at it, make sure that whoever is running against Reid has a never-ending war chest.

    If somebody intended to leak something damaging to Zero’s reelection prospects, they would not give it only to the LameStreamMedia. Anybody with their eyes open enough to know that Zero needs to be ejected also understands that the LSM is thoroughly committed to covering Zero’s ass. Gingrich may well have word of something about to come out, but he is playing a deeper game than rumor-spreading. Perhaps he means to induce the LSM’s guiding lights into getting Zero’s latest rendition of the evolving story out, so that it can be demolished with what Gingrich knows is coming out.

    Just once, I would like to hear one of these pundits mention that the ENTIRE staff of thirty-plus people were left to die. Only because of the bravery of two men (disobeying orders, btw) were all of those other lives saved.

    This was an evil deed by a soul-less administration. And the “media” is complicit.

    I have to disagree with Greta in her efforts to soothe out feelings here. Never has there been a more appropriate time than now to expose this attitude of Islamist favoritism by the White House. We are looking at being overun by Islamists in this coutry, Greta is not Solomon. We actually don’t care what Greta thinks. She has proven herself to be unreliable as a member of the Scientology occult. All we want is to get the truth out. I am actually resenting her appearance here.
    Greta was the final straw in my decision to disconnect my cable in 2006. I was offended by her sensationalizing the disappearance of Natalie Holloway and the making of Natalie’s mother into a celebrity. They both made me sick to my stomach. I think it was 2006. At any rate it was before they arrested Van der Sloot. I am disgusted with her interview here and only wish I could get to her and tell her to her face.
    Let’s talk about the “art” production of Christ in urine. Are there any Christians killing and burning the gallery? It hurts my soul to see this in a gallery. if the owners think they can out smart God Almighty, they deserve the flames of Hell. Romans 1. God will let loose those who purposely rebel against Him.

    Does the jury have a verdict?
    Yes. Guilty as charged.
    I honestly think the framers of our constitution would have given serious thought to shortening the Presidents’ terms to three or maybe even two years, had they ever dreamed that someday the people would elect someone like obama.

    I believe Obama wanted Stevens dead. Why else would he watch him die live feed, and leak that his personal journal and other “sensitive “documents were stolen or destroyed? Obama was gun running between Libya and Syria and Stevens knew. He had to be eliminated. The media is a guilty accomplice.

  • Liz

    Prove us wrong, Obama. Stop stonewalling. Your silence is damning.

  • JR

    We need an Andrew Breitbart to offer a good reward for the release of these e-mails.
