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

    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?

    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….

    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.

    To finish my thought….

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

    God Bless Tyrone Woods.

    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.

    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.

    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.
