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”

    still think Obama even cares about you? I’ve been saying since he was elected this man is nefarious and is a constitutional subversive. he belongs in prison…

  • Bill Mitchell

    THIS is the true tragedy of Benghazi.

    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.

  • jb books

    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!!!

  • Remco Kimber

    This is unbelievable. He knew what was what, and that help was a short distance away. And did NOTHING !

    And this clown pats himself on the back for pulling the trigger on OBL !

  • BurmaShave

    It looks as if Ansar al-Sharia was running offense, and their man in the White House has been running defense, just not for the USA.

  • Ragspierre

    Obama is cooked.

  • Bitter Clinger

    Meanwhile, an American citizen sits in JAIL for exercising his free speech right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ace

    and the New York Times is still peddling the YouTube video propaganda.

  • snap boy

    Obama wasn’t het up enough to fiddle; he went to sleep.

    RE #10 — the “American citizen” in jail is not who he said he was. He has terrorist ties and is not a Christian as he claimed. Instead, a criminal, a felon that’s snitched for the Feds. 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.

  • bman

    I believe the 173rd. Airborne is stationed at Sigonella. They are deployed in the Stan.

  • BridgetGB

    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.

  • jj

    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.

  • http://biggovernment.com ponderon

    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.

    Prison…I’d like to see Obama, Hillary, and Holder in leg irons, frog marched out of the WH to a gallows. EACH one of these oath-takers has been complicit in the deaths of American citizens and EACH lied to cover it up.

    If they can snag any accessories after the fact, life in prison. PEOPLE DIED.
