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.

  • Liz

    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.

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

    You got any idea where Boehner is? Got any idea where McConnell is? If the MSM won’t give them the time of day, get on social networks, FOX News, alternative new media. Go around them. You know that the MSM and Reid are nothing more than traitorous palace guards for the regime anyway.

    They were sent there to stop this garbage. Do your best to do that. Sorry, I’m not seeing a whole lot of it. When you are under siege, you do more than pop your head out every now and then and fire a few rounds.

  • Michele

    Unless Fox News is one of the media with the e-mails, this will NOT be public until after the election, if then.

  • Redlite

    Brry denied request for aid THREE times. In doing so so he sealed their fate- they all died. He directedly aided the attacking force by not allowing our military to fight back. Giving aid and comfort to the enemy is treason.

    Pres Ben Gazi said at one time and I forget the exact quote. If Muslims were attacked that he would side with the Muslims. A Muslim can never be the President and defend this country. But we have one now!

    Alot of heads should roll after this is over. We can only hope for alot of leaks by officials as they scramble to cover their a$$.

    Which polls would those be? Not Gallup – they’ve suspended polling. Did you look at the internals? What was the D-I-R spread and how does it compare with 2008 and 2010? (Most polls that are showing Obama with ANY lead or even dead even are giving Dems +5 or more on the 2008 numbers and Republicans less than the 2010 – so the deck is VERY stacked). Got citations?

    Facebook Censors Navy SEALs to Protect Obama on Benghazi-Gate

  • It seems odd to me.

    Why, if the persons that gave the “major networks” emails wanted them to see the light of day, would they not give them to Fox News?

    They were doing something to make Obama look like a great military man. The plan went wrong when a couple guys went to help other Americans. Then Stevens died in the safe room.
    1. Obama loses the election
    2. He resigns shortly afterwards.
    3. Joe Biden becomes president and pardons a bunch of people.
    4. Mitt Romney becomes president.
    5. The press starts showing the debt clock every night on the evening news again.
    ? Can Obama pardon himself? That would change #2 and #3

    Granny commented: This is not the fault of the Congress because Reid has a Senate majority and shoots down anything the House puts forward.

    As far as legislation, etc. you are correct but Boehner and Cantor have failed to protect us by making known what is going on. It’s called communication. Gingrich knows how to communicate so the American people know what’s happening even if the media and an administration tries to cover up. He did this successfully as speaker by constant communication directly to Americans if he couldn’t get the media to co-operate. He used C-Span or any other form of communication he could. Boehner and Cantor have made no such effort to inform us of the blatant disregard for rule of law by this president and his Justice Department. Letters, speeches, email the internet all could have been used. I consider the leadership in the House complicit in the criminality of the Obama regime. I don’t accept any excuses and they need to be replaced by someone who will actually use every means possible to protect and inform us instead of hunkering down until an election. I notice they had no problem sending numerous emails for funds.

    Obama will pardon himself, Holder and O.J.
    Also notice that his plan is to make sure that no enemy, what ev he calls them, ever is captured.
    He does not want the muslims to come back as prisoners and perhaps tell what they know. So there are no prisoners accepted and drone strikes only. As far as Behghazi, the National Front for the Libertation of libya is there and we armed them against kadaffi.
    But the drones over the firefight at the consulate– Our drones have been armed before
    and have shot at US citizens–al queds, sure. Imo.
    Like the military officer on KFI640,Brian Suits Show, said- where are all the wounded? where are the Libyan wounded beitng treated from a 7 hr fire fight? Where are their families that are keeping a vigil?

  • This is a scandal of proportions that has not been seen for over half a century. WAY eclipsing Watergate.

  • Everything, All The Time

    I have been hoping for a long time now that Romney will begin a full investigation into the actions of our current Criminal-in-Chief so that we can put him behind bars. Between Fast & Furious and Benghazigate there is more than enough evidence out there to lock this mfer up if anyone were willing to pursue it….

    Why Was Security Stripped in Benghazi?

    by Clare Lopez

    [Whatever the thinking that left a U.S. mission abroad so undefended that
    it practically constituted an open invitation to Al-Qaeda, and then, in cold
    blood, refused to launch military support in defense of Americans fighting
    and dying to defend U.S. sovereign territory from jihadi assault, the cover
    -up is fast becoming the worse failure. It is time for administration leaders,
    from the president on down, to explain both their actions and their failures
    to act.

    It appears that Obama could be guilty of Treason therefore, the information needed to determine
    what happened in Benghazi should be turned over immediately or The President and all those involved should be arrested. This should include any Republicans who do not make an all out effort to get this information as they could at that point be considered complicit in protecting Obama.
    We cannot accept ignoring this situation as the Democrats will exploit us further if they are not held accountable. Now is the time to take a stand.
