CONFIRMED: US Benghazi SEALs Had Laser Capability and Waited Five Hours For Air Support… But It Never Came

The US SEALs had laser capability and for 5 hours and 15 minutes were wondering when the air support would show up.
But it never came.
Obama never made the order.

Tyrone Woods begged for air support on 9-11 before his death.
It never came.
FOX News reported:

Sources who have debriefed the team that was at the CIA annex the night of the attack in Benghazi say that the CIA operators from the Global Response Staff, or GRS, were equipped with Mark 48 machine guns and had two types of laser capability. Each weapon had both a “passive” as well as a “visible” laser that could be used against the Libyan attackers.

The presence of laser capability on the roof of the CIA annex confirms what Fox News sources that night in Benghazi originally said, which is that they had laser capability and for 5 hours and 15 minutes were wondering where the usual overhead air support was, especially since, according to this source, they radioed from the annex beginning as early as midnight asking for it.

The presence of lasers raises more questions about why air support was not sent to Benghazi even protectively once it became clear that the fighting had followed the CIA rescue team back to the annex.

The heroes on the ground called for help – Obama did nothing.
It Was Dereliction of Duty

    Obama lied…people died. Our President is a Murderer and the MSM ignores it.

  • Faye

    This just keeps getting more damning of this administration. Just exactly what were their reasons to let these brave men die?
    What was their agenda or are the just royal screw ups who talk a talk but really don’t have a clue of how to walk and make and decide something at the same time. Either way this nation needs to wake up and vote them out on Tuesday.
    Because the two choices are a bunch of treasonous Islamic Jihadist sympathizers or the positions they all hold are WAY above their abilities to perform with success.

    Not only fail, but the liberal mainstream media, which still largely controls the national narrative, has become the enemy of America.

    When the media constantly echoes the liberal worldview, the nation is denied an objective picture of events as they occur. Based on what they report, and just as importantly what they DON’T report, the media acts as a mouthpiece for the government when Democrats are in power, and a fiercely partisan destroyer when Republicans are in power.

    The liberal mainstream media is trying to avoid reporting on Benghazi, just as they have done on Fast and Furious. Also, when they report on individual politicians, they avoid scandals that reflect poorly on Democrats. Evidence for this is the fact that they often mention party affiliation or ideology for Republicans/Conservatives, but refrain from the terms Democrats/liberals when they do write about situations involving them. We also have huge discrepancies in balance of political donations in favor of liberals/democrats.

    All of these points also apply to higher education as well. Achieving balance to these two institutions is as important as voting, if the Republic is to be preserved.

  • Robert

    The administration is and has been gun-running to militant islamic radicals, fostering their takeover of governments across the Middle East.

    I just wonder how many more we have to see before the nation figures this out.

  • Sasja

    Faye, Rush laid this out. Here, in part, is an explanation from his broadcast, Oct 25th.

    “Now, there’s an answer to this, and when you explain it to people, it’s very difficult for them to get their arms around it because they can’t conceive of high government officials thinking or acting this way. Now, the John Bolton answer is, if you really want to know why this happened the way it did, you have to understand the Obama ideology. The Obama ideology is that they create, as liberals, a bubble, an alternative universe or reality in which they live, in which everything’s hunky-dory. For example, they passed the stimulus bill, and that’s it, that’s all you gotta do and jobs will come back. You have a program to help people with their underwater mortgages, do the program, it’s done. Okay, we’ve done that. You got a problem with jobs, you get Thomas Friedman and a couple other eggheads that don’t know what they’re talking about, and have a two-hour seminar at the White House on a Friday afternoon, announce after two hours it’s done, and then you fix jobs, and then you move on.

    In the case of Libya, well, we took out bin Laden. That’s always been the left’s definition of victory in the War on Terror. That’s how they always held Bush out. “You can’t say you won anything here. Bin Laden’s still alive. You shoulda gone after bin Laden. You gotta get bin Laden. That’s how the War on Terror’s won.” Well, guess what? (imitating Obama) “I got bin Laden. I did. I came off the golf course and I ordered the trigger to be pulled, three times.” So Osama’s gone and so is Al-Qaeda. They’re on the run. That’s Obama in the campaign, “Al-Qaeda on the run.” You know, when Obama took office, Al-Qaeda — this according to KT McFarland yesterday on Fox. Obama took office in 2009, Al-Qaeda basically was in two countries. Today they’re in 30.

    They’re on the run, in Obama’s bubble, in Obama’s world, they’re on the run. He took care of them. He took out bin Laden. He also took out Khadafy. Oh, that’s really great. We’ve got democracy springing out in the Middle East, he thinks. No, we don’t. We’ve got the Muslim Brotherhood spreading Sharia and Islamic supremacy all over the Middle East. We don’t have an outbreak of democracy. In Obama’s bubble, according to Bolton, we got great things happening there. We got rid of Khadafy. We get rid of Mubarak. I’m loved. Middle East loves me. Americans love me, taking care of bad guys. Well, this Benghazi thing, that can’t happen. No, because there’s no explanation for it, not in our bubble. Why, we got bin Laden.”

    Just remember that as of last week, Barry was speechifying that Al-Queda was on the run (and his dimwitted followers just lapped it up).

  • west1890

    Please don’t be so kind as to credit Obama and Clinton and Panetta with being inept. What was done was intentional. It was a reelection ploy kidnap plan gone awry. Bad guys under Obama direction were to kidnap the ambassador and hold him hostage. That would allow Obammy to trade the Blind Sheik for the ambassador and Obama beats his chest and plays hero. Bad guys double crossed little Barry…dragged the fight on for hours to try to lure US Special Forces in for rescue attempt because they intended to ambush them and murder all of them. Obama realized what was going on and decided it would be easier to explain away the ambassador and those with him being murdered than the additional wholesale slaughter of rescuers. That would have drawn so much attention he could not suppress the story and the ugly truth about supplying arms to terrorists, etc. coming out. Obama is hiding plenty and when this thing finally blows up it will be ugly. The Obama admin and the press are doing everything they can to suppress the truth and ensure his reelection. We have someone in the WH whose capacity for corruption, destruction, deception and evil is beyond what most of us can even imagine.

  • Robert

    The liberal mainstream media is a major player in all of the situations, even more so than the politicians in my opinion.

    As another example, they showed Bush flying over New Orleans, painting him as detached, while they have showed Oblabber in a bomber jacket going to work after hurricane Sandy.

    Both instances involved terrible devastation and suffering, and in both circumstances the federal government could only do but so much. But what was reported, and not reported, have been as different as night and day.

  • Linda

    Tyrone Woods…Glen Doherty and the other or others had those lasers set…THEY WONDERED ‘WHEN’ HELP WOULD ARRIVE…BUT THEY…NEVER…WONDERED ‘IF’ HELP WOULD ARRIVE!

  • Kissmygrits

    Geraldo Rivera wants everyone to apologize to the president for accusing him of wrong doing regarding Benghazi. Here it is, Jerry, he can kiss my grits! He had plenty of time to respond, he knew what was going on and exactly where things were bad. The whole consulate there was left to die at the hands of terrorists but 30 were saved by the heroic actions of the Seals. That’s 30 witnesses left alive to tell their tale. The truth will catch up to this bunch one day.

  • Ruebacca

    You need to add a forth person to the picture. The Obama fall guy sitting in California jail on parole violations. The 1st amendment is another victim.

  • Earthmover

    Americans can do something, simply DO NOT support any advertisers on the
    MSM! Take notes and buy elsewhere. AND let these companies know it.
    Hit em right in the wallet, its all we can do.

  • I wrote here about Mike Baker’s response to what happened that night. Here’s the key paragraph:

    “BAKER: The important thing is, this attack is unfolding. The CIA has personnel on the ground in the Global Response Staff. These guys, including Ty, they are not there to provide long-term defense capability. They are there to hold off the hostiles until the cavalry shows up. And the covenant is that the cavalry will show up. And it didn’t.

    The blood of these patriots is on President Obama’s hands.

    Make sure you read the entire article. I transcribed the most disturbing pieces of information from last night’s interview.

  • Sasja

    For whatever reason, Barry deliberately denied any military assistance to those men. He, Shrilliary, Panetta, Patraeus, are all culpable and in a just world would be arrested, tried, convicted and executed. Not only for this atrocity, but for their many other crimes against the US and its people.

  • Sasja
  • GSrider

    Obama wouldn’t send help because he, they, knew the outcome of doing so. Any assistance would’ve been shot out of the sky just like the Chinook carrying dozens of elite SEAL members including those of SEAL team 6, killed in August 2011. All dead, shot down with sophisticated american weapons provided by the Obama regimes gun running scheme.
    The rape and torture of Ambassador Stevens was watched in real time and was intended to provoke a military response and add another trinket in the Jihadist trophy case by taking out any such rescue. B. Hussein Obama knew this and let these men die in order to save what is left of his deranged campaign for a second term.

  • Chalice

    There will be a special place in hell for these traitorous cowards who coldly let 4 Americans die. I only hope that before they journey into the pits that their lives are a but of hell, here on Earth. But I fear none of them will be brought to justice.

    We start this Tuesday. Vote as if your country depended on it. And then, unremitting pressure on President Romney and Congressional leaders to serve the cause of justice.

  • Miss Peach

    This just keeps getting worse and worse as more information comes out. I cannot even imagine the fear Tyrone Woods must have felt when he realized that help was not coming and he was abandoned to die. At that moment, I bet he knew those were his last few moments of life. Damn to hell everyone that was involved in this coverup including our media who so blatantly are ignoring this story, which should be headline news. Obama and Hillary knew…and they did nothing and now 4 Americans are dead. They all should be hanging their heads in shame if they had a soul.

    Thank you for your comment.
    I have heard Bolton’s explanation for how this administration is acting and it makes a lot of sense. Then it means they are completely incompetent with that attitude.
    How on earth can people who think they are the smartest in the world be so stupid?

  • Practical Jane

    I’m a pretty tough cookie and don’t often cry, but this is horrific. I can’t get that horrible feeling out of my stomach of the moment they must have realized that America had abandoned them. It’s sickening and heartbreaking and I’m ashamed.

    When prisoners in Guantanamo Bay were mistreated they went after Bush and they did not waste any time…at Libya our people were set up…MURDERED…AS THIS ADMINISTRATION WATCHED…

    The Ex-SEAL security contractors working for the CIA may not have had a laser designator.

    Most American M-16 night vision gear now has passive night vision with laser pointers to aim their rifles.

    The 30 to 1 kill ratio between the two Ex-SEALs and the Libyan Jihadis is now explained.

    These pointers could not guide a laser guided bomb, but they are quite visible to the Sensors of an AC-130U Gunship

    For what it’s worth…I spend far too much time coasting around blogs – but I do it to pick up the vibes from right, left, and middle, to get a sense of how real people feel, not just slanted polls. And what I’ve found in just the past 48 hours is that the momentum for Romney continues to surge. MANY Dems who voted for Obama, or who voted Dem all their lives, or who never voted at all, either will or already have voted for Romney.

    And perhaps more interesting, although sad, is how many switched to Romney because of Benghazi. So despite the media blackout on the scandal, word HAS gotten out, enough to switch voters. Now if those voters can just ensure that their votes are not switched back to Obama on the electronic pads….

  • Sasja

    Faye, they tell themselves, and try to convince those of us who know better, they are smart when in fact, they are not. Don’t believe the hype.

  • Sasja

    To finish my thought….

    This makes them exceedingly dangerous. This, combined with their total hatred for American values.

    God Bless Tyrone Woods.

  • Tim

    Woods and Doherty knew exactly what kind of president they served. They had a front row seat to the stripping of security from the “consulate.” I bet they were not the least bit surprised when no air support showed up. I’m sure they were hoping an American was listening to their calls for help, but there was only Obama and his bootlickers at the end of the line.

    They had two types of lasers..PEQ-15 gun mounted lasers and GLD Ground Laser Designators…Fox News has the whole report…

  • why is this information coming from fox news when all of it is known to the white house? the president promised the american people on sept.12, 2012 that as soon as any information about what happen at benghazi became available it would be released to the american people.

  • Joanne

    This breaks my heart. I do not know if this man called upon God, but God is our first and only answer when we seek refuge from evil doers…..still breaks my heart.

  • valerie

    Somebody here posted a link to this, and I just got around to looking at it. These days, we can even hear from the Libyans about the attack in Behghazi.

    They’re claiming they got hold of a bunch of documents from top-ranking members of the Libyan government. I have no way to authenticate any of this. It’s just one set of information.

    But it’s worth a second look.

  • The people on the ground were suffering from the same ROE’s used in Afghanistan. How long have we been hearing about our soldiers under fire being refused artillery and air support for fear of killing unarmed Afghans.

    Now add to this the political weight of Obama not wanting to make this any bigger than it was, hoping the terrorists would go away and he could massage the attack into something smaller, you can see Woods and his people never had a chance.

    The only thing that saved the remaining people was the hard fighting by the people there and the fact it was getting light AND that the message had been successfully sent- get out of Benghazi.

    For the terrorists it was a good night indeed. For America, it was a nightmare.

    Obama is a bad guy. If he gets another term, we’ll see more of this or the U.S. simply retreating from the region and the Caliphate starting.

  • has anybody heard one single word about benghazi from a democratic member of congress?

  • Mannie

    The American Citizens abandoned by the Treasonous Criminal Zerobama and massacred in Benghazi have names. Remember them. Don’t let them be forgotten.

    Joanne…I have no doubt he did call upon God…God empowered them to kill at least 60 of them…and bring to safety some 30 people!!!

    I have no doubt either that IF’ Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty had previously known of the betrayal at the consulate they still would of answered the call to help them out!



    And yes it tears me up inside as well…but I do take comfort knowing there is a God that cannot be bribed and that will take care of this!

  • Look-Out

    Hearts are breaking all over America for the heroes we love…those who didn’t run from danger or seek safety for themselves, but ran to face it head-on in order to save others.

    Then found themselves betrayed by the leaders of our country!

    I just saw and heard a military man in an interview with Neil Cavuto. He ran himself for President some years ago. Wesley Clark is his name. He makes me sick every time I listen to him. He lies so easily for the Left. He’s been doing it for years.

    Purge these rats from the ranks of leadership. Cleanse the halls of Congress. Restore our America. Patriots, don’t fail us on November 6!

    Where is Romney and Boehner? If they say noting is that not the same as Obama’s stand down order. They will have no moral authority to lead if they stay quiet. They will be co-conspirators to murder.

  • For those of you who have questions, you’ll find the answers on my blog. Stevenson was an expendable to Obama. I have a whole page on Obama’s atrocities in Libya. They are slamming us with the election television coverage diversion and the east coast storm, ignoring this all important issue, to divert our attention away from this all important issue which Obama needs to be impeached for treason because of. The Libya information has to get out and be told, it has to go viral. Even those who are for him have to use their heads after knowing about this and realize he’s destroying our country, and anything else he deems necessary, even human beings. Romney isn’t a prize, but anything’s better then this monster. Wake up America. Smell the coffee already. Visit my blog for very important information at
