OBAMA FIDDLED AS BENGHAZI BURNED – President Refused to Call in Troops From Italy One Hour Away

** White House officials watched the terror strike live by unmanned Predator drone
** White House knew Al-Qaeda linked group was behind terror strike at 6:07 PM EST on 9-11
** An estimated 300 to 400 ‘national security figures’ received emails from Libya day of attack
** US Troops in Italy were not called in to rescue officials
** 200 attacks in Benghazi before 9-11
** The Obama Administration was concerned using troops from Italy would violate Libyan sovereignty

The US had troops in Sigonella, Italy – about an hour away.
The attack went on for at least four hours.

President Obama sat on his thumbs as the Benghazi consulate burned.
FOX Nation reported, via Maggies Farm:

The United States had an unmanned Predator drone over its consulate in Benghazi during the attack that slaughtered four Americans — which should have led to a quicker military response, it was revealed yesterday.

“They stood, and they watched, and our people died,” former CIA commander Gary Berntsen told CBS News.

The network reported that the drone and other reconnaissance aircraft observed the final hours of the hours-long siege on Sept. 11 — obtaining information that should have spurred swift action.

But as Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three colleagues were killed by terrorists armed with AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, Defense Department officials were too slow to send in the troops, Berntsen said.

“They made zero adjustments in this. You find a way to make this happen,” he fumed.

“There isn’t a plan for every single engagement. Sometimes you have to be able to make adjustments.”

The Pentagon said it moved a team of special operators from Central Europe to Sigonella, Italy — about an hour flight from Libya — but gave no other details.

Fighter jets and Specter AC-130 gunships — which could have been used to help disperse the bloodthirsty mob — were also stationed at three nearby bases, sources told the network.

The White House was sent this email at 6:07 PM on 9-11: “Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack”

    Yes but both Today show and GMA LEAD with the story of some senate candidate’s stupid remark about rape, tying him to Romney. Do you believe these people are in the tank for Obama now? I doubt they would even report the Pearl Harbor attack today if they could get some dirt on a republican instead. Sickening.

    Honestly, who is surprised by this?

  • BurmaShave

    This map tells an important tale:

    In particular the map shows that Benghazi and a lot of territory around it is rebel controlled. Despite that, Obama dawdled for weeks waiting to get clearance from the ineffectual government in Tripoli so that the FBI could investigate the assassination – er, the “bump in the road” – (that we should all know by now Obama does NOT want investigated at all) IN TERRITORY NOT CONTROLLED BY THE LYBIAN GOVERNMENT!!!

Probably worked with this administration to make the lousy video that Morsi used to whip up the protest in Cairo. And that Team BHO could say also caused the Benghazi attack.

    We knew that the liars & the looters were lying from the get go. Such a lame & flimsy lie to begin with… A youtube video without farsi dubbing caused this melt down? really? yeah right dudes, didn’t think that one through.. Right now, the tyrants of the Obama regime have got the so called ‘filmmaker’ in solitary confinement over a non-violent parole violation. They arrested this guy in the dark of night with multiple armed officers on the scene. This is fricking outrageous. Why solitary confinement? Why are they holding him at all? This is an outlaw regime.

    Why was the drone there in the first place?

  • iamsaved

    This is what happens when Obama’s political Rasputin, Valerie Jarrett, does the advising. As she advised Obama not strike Osama Bin Laden on two or three previous occasions, she probably advised him to not send military aid to the consulate because it might look bad for his campaign.

  • Course he didn’t send in help…….This Benghazi attack was botched October Surprise ..They needed time to find someone or something to blame…Couldn’t send troops snooping around and find the real reason for this attack.

    Where were the carrier battle groups. None to be found in the Med with all of the s–h that has been going down. There should have been one parked off the Libyan-Egypt coast with a Marine amphib battilion. Checking the current deployment HALF are in dry dock or are setting in port. We have 6 functioning groups soon to be 5 after paying off the Enterprise this fall. Though this group of SMFers in Washington wouldn’t have defended our counsolate anyways. Cowardly prevaracating PUSSIES.

    This is the incredible truth that Romney should have brought up while staring into that lying bastard’s beady little eyes.

    A president who could go to bed after this has NO soul. Remember we were told that Panetta was “the adult in the room” and Petraeus was on board with the “hateful” video lie–SO many people SO deeply corrupted that they put their careers ahead of our citizens.

    At least Jimmy Carter can say he sent in a helicopter to Iran, even if it was a botched attempt. Obama can’t say anything.

    Obama wasn’t worried about Libya’s sovereignty when he went to war against the regime without Congress’s approval and supplied the rebels with armament and nor does he care about other country’s sovereignty with his drone attacks. Americans died as Obama lied. Obama and Hillary even made commercials to blame the attacks on a lone producer of a film they blamed the attack on. Disgusting, filthy thrash.

    Maybe they didn’t send help because they knew the terrorists had stinger missiles, because we were providing them.

    Posted elsewhere:

    Given what we know now about Benghazigate, our dear leader could have acted in real time and tried to protect our people on the ground.

    Instead he acted like the celebrity candidate and had bigger priorities – getting to bed to get up early to go to a fundraiser in Las Vegas.

    Instead of acting like a leader, he shirked his duties.

    He could have been 15 points ahead of Romney in the polls – although he would have had to have answered for his negligence in protecting the Benghazi embassy in the first place – but people would have looked past that IF he had taken action during that attack.

    BUT HE DIDN’T.

    Re-elect Barack Hussein Obama?

    YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS.

    The man should turn in his resignation as a national disgrace.

    From the looks of it, a SPECTRE gunship could have been there within two hours from the word “go.” Thinking and calculating in real time, it would have arrived with an hour or so left to the debacle, and would have caught the attackers in the open and/or unable to find suitable cover from the gunship’s many different weapons. The Americans might also have still been alive at the time.

    A SPECTRE can strike with pinpoint accuracy, killing a bad guy while not harming a friendly as close as ten feet away.

    You still have not presented any evidence that drones observed the attack, because there is none. It’s the fevered invention of Nice Deb, Hoft and Fox Nation.

    “American drones were in the skies above the U.S. consulate in Benghazi as the deadly attack that killed ambassador Christopher Stevens unfolded, it has been revealed. ”

    Revealed WHERE? By WHO? Where is the ACTUAL INFORMATION?

    The Right Wing never met a conspiracy theory they didn’t love.

  • Skye Bentley

    Dont know if it”s true or not but I heard a rumor that Hillary did asked for helicopters to be sent in within an hour after the attack but the whitehouse refused. Cant find anything online to confirm that claim but if it true than not only should Obama be inpeached, he should be charged with treason. Why is our president “applauding the act of kindness” for the people that sodomized and murdered Stevens.
