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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

  • Gary Gross

    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.
