Dear Fellow Americans:

When Defense Secretary Panetta and CJCS General Dempsey took the stand yesterday about Benghazi, we expected them to continue the Administration’s bunk lines and obfuscation. But we did actually learn one new and very telling piece of information:

The President was completely and inexplicably AWOL on the night of the Benghazi attack.

He answered their original, pre-planned call at roughly 5 PM, but the President never called to check back in.

That means that while one of our ambassadors was being murdered by Islamist terrorists – in what they knew to be a planned attack – neither the President nor Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called to check on the situation with DoD or try to coordinate any type of response.

President Obama simply waved his hand and told them to do as they thought best, and ostensibly went on his way that night – and to a Vegas fundraiser the next morning.

They can talk about how that is some kind of standard procedure all they want, but it is completely absurd to say that the President should be expected to stay detached from such a critical situation and let his staff run the show without any input or care as an American Ambassador and three others are killed by an Islamist mob.

Beyond that disgusting admission, the Panetta story either left numerous other questions virtually unanswered or opened up their actions and inactions to deeper scrutiny.

Less than an hour into the attack, the CIA identified the attack as a coordinated terrorist effort of al-Qaeda sympathizers. Why did the Administration continue to lie to the American people for weeks about the true nature of our Ambassador’s murder?

8 Key Questions that MUST be answered by President Obama

 

1-Where was the Commander-in Chief during the crisis in Benghazi that cost four American lives and What was he doing?

2-Why did he not take charge as Commander-in-Chief?

3-Who was really calling the shots?

4-Where were Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey during the crisis and What inputs, recommendations and decisions did they make?

5-Where were the National Security Advisor, Tom Donilon, and his Deputy, Denis McDonough (known as “the Fixer”) during the attacks and more importantly, What inputs and recommendations (if any) did either of them make to Obama?

6-As has been reported, Were Obama and Biden on the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for an hour (or more) on “other more important business” after the attack in Benghazi began?

7-After the attacks were over WHEN did Obama reappear on the scene?

8-HOW will he explain his DERELICTION OF DUTY as Commander-in-Chief?

benghazigate-meme.jpgSecretary Panetta claimed that no AC-130 gunship was within 1,000 miles; if that were so, why was Tyrone Woods explicitly requesting one?  Was Panetta being dishonest?

Dempsey also made the contradictory statement that he “did not know where the AC-130’s were located” but that he knew that “no AC-130 was anywhere near Africa that night.”

Former Navy SEALs Woods and Doherty, not assigned as security personnel “ran to the sound of the guns,” though they were explicitly told (three times) to STAND DOWN!  They killed about 60 of the attackers and rescued some thirty (possibly more) personnel, then paid with their lives. So the question that MUST be asked is “WHO gave the order to STAND DOWN and WHY?” CIA Director Petraeus specifically and stated that it was not his agency. The individual who gave this order (multiple times) is guilty of criminal acts and should be held accountable.

U.S. Special Forces commander and Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for intelligence Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin has confidently stated that DoD could have quickly dispatched aircraft to Libya. Why did Panetta and Dempsey so adamantly claim otherwise?

The White House Situation Room, the CIA Command Center, the National Military Command Center, and a total of about 12 command centers worldwide were notified of the attack and were observing it in real time within 10 minutes of Ambassador Stevens’ phone call for help. These command centers regarded the attack as “actionable information.” They stood by for a “Go” command that never came. Why? And why in the world do the Administration’s cronies continue to swear up and down that there was too much confusion and not enough information to do anything?

Why haven’t the survivors of the attacks who were eventually evacuated on the following day been identified and questioned as to what occurred from their perspectives, and where are they now?
The answers to the above questions are recorded, transcribed in logs, and readily available for incorporation into a paper trail that will reveal the TRUTH about Benghazi. The fact that the Obama Administration has sent people like Clinton and Panetta before the congressional committees to parrot the official line and dodge the real questions is almost as damning as if they’d continued to avoid testifying.

As was the case during the bin Laden takedown, there had to be at least one senior military member in the White House Situation Room. Individuals involved MUST testify, under oath, about what they heard and saw.

Watch officers and NCO’s, supervisors, aircrew personnel, and scores of others in the command and control networks and operational units know what transpired and what orders were given (or NOT given).  They should be required to testify, as well.

The Obama Administration feels like this abomination is over. They feel like they can now turn away from this cover-up and that the American people will give them a pass – just like the media are doing.

We have to prove them dead wrong. Until we finally get the TRUTH, the WHOLE TRUTH, and NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH, they must never be allowed to wash their hands of their complicity in this shameful episode in American history.

We’re going to take the strongest possible action against this Administration for their misdeeds. But we need you to help us keep up the pressure and send a clear message from the American people that this is both unconscionable dereliction of duty and criminal cover-up.

Will you stand with us as we seek the truth about the murder of four brave Americans? The standing of our nation before the world depends on it.  Help as much as you can—please.

Special Operations Speaks DEMANDS an Investigation to Uncover Potential High Crimes and Misdemeanors in Benghazigate

Special Operations Speaks DEMANDS
an Investigation to Uncover Potential
High Crimes and Misdemeanors in Benghazigate

Dear Fellow Americans:

benghazigate-meme.jpg

 

Today, Special Operations Speaks PAC released the following statement along with a petition demanding an independent investigation into Barack Obama’s administration and its actions that may constitute High Crimes and Misdemeanors by the President, regardless of the outcome of the November 6th Presidential Election.

“It remains uncertain if the tragedy in Benghazi was caused or compounded by Obama’s reckless inaction, gross negligence, or incompetent leadership,” said Joe Stringham, BG, USA (Ret), Special Forces/Ranger and Chairman of Special Operations Speaks PAC. “What is clear is that the deaths of Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty are on Obama’s bloody hands,” said Chairman Stringham.

“The President and his administration told outrageous lie after outrageous lie to the American people and at the United Nations for weeks after the 9-11-12 attacks. He will never be trusted again to speak the truth. That is why it is essential to appoint an independent prosecutor to investigate the scope of Obama and his administration’s culpability and total incompetence if not complicity with regard to these grave losses,” said Dick Brauer, Col, USAF (Ret), Air Commando.

“We’re tired of watching as President Obama authorizes his Executive Branch to bypass Congress, such as the EPA’s destructive regulatory actions which have neutered US domestic energy production. We’re tired of watching as they put guns into the hands of drug cartels in Mexico, resulting directly in the death of border agent Brian Terry. We’re tired of watching as they leak proprietary military information to Hollywood, endangering our future Special Operations missions as well as the lives of our troops and their families.” said Larry Bailey, CAPT, USN, (Ret) SEAL

The question remains, do these actions constitute High Crimes and Misdemeanors? SOS PAC believes that an independent investigation with a special prosecutor is the only way Americans will learn the truth.

If Obama is guilty of High Crimes and Misdemeanors we implore Congress to take every action in their power to hold this President and his administration accountable – up to impeachment and/or indictments.

“No matter how November 6th plays out, Obama must be held responsible for his actions as a failed Commander in Chief,” said Joe Stringham, BG, USA (Ret), Special Forces/Ranger and Chairman of Special Operations Speaks PAC.

Facebook, obama’s Army Of Internet Fascists, Censoring Navy SEAL’s To Help Cover obama’s Benghazi Scandal, Coverup and TREASON.

October 30, 2012 2 comments

TWG: I cancelled my facebook account a long time ago when I saw how they were censoring Conservatives, Independents and Libertarians, AS WELL AS OUR MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY AND VETERANS GROUPS  while allowing islamic terrorists and other obama supporters to post lies, hate speech and vile  threats of rape, torture and murder against us.  Once I learned about Mark Zuckerberg’s involvement ,  secret meetings and intimate dinner parties with the obama regime, as well as the “stimulus” money he received from his pal obama back in ’09, I realized that facebook is nothing more than the propaganda machine for the obama regime.  Mark Zuckerberg is obama’s personal goebbels wanna-be RUNT.  I cannot understand why there are any Conservatives left on facebook after the allegiance they’ve demonstrated with the islamics, communists, marxists, socialists and racists within the obama regime.  Are YOU still using facebook? If so, WHY?  More importantly, are YOU a member of the United States Military or Veterans Group who is supporting the obama regime?  WHY, AND WHAT MADE YOU A TRAITOR TO THIS NATION AND TO YOUR FELLOW VETERANS???

Facebook Censors Navy SEALS to Protect Obama on Benghazi-Gate

Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi……

Former Delta Operator on “The Panetta Doctrine” aka “The Dumbest Sh** I Ever Heard!”

Former Delta Operator on “The Panetta Doctrine” or also known as “The Dumbest Shit I Ever Heard!”

Posted By Blackfive • [October 29, 2012]

Got an email from the retired former Delta operator in the Benghazi post.  And yes, he mis-spells the SecDef’s name on purpose.

This is about doctrine, specifically the Obama Administration’s doctrine, and how it doesn’t work in the real world:

Leon Penetta is Either a Dumbass or a Liar
The Secretary of Defense, in his most determined way, continues to try to protect the President from the fiasco in Benghazi.  So desperate to shield the President he announced what will be forever remembered as the Penetta Doctrine:
“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place,” Panetta told Pentagon reporters. “And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”
Of course, in the circles that I ran with, it will be forever labeled “The Dumbest Shit I Ever Heard Doctrine”.
To be fair to Leon, however, his audience for this ridiculous statement was not members of the military and especially not for those in the Special Operations arena who immediately recognized that the entire statement is not a doctrine at all.  It is horseshit, nothing more.

The “The Dumbest Shit I Ever Heard Doctrine” was targeted toward civilians……(Con’t)

Benghazi Scandal & Coverup: The obama regime Now Attempting To Throw Our Military Under The Bus

October 28, 2012 4 comments

TWG: The obama regime now attempting to blame the Benghazi scandal on the MILITARY!  They’ve told so many lies about this scandal…… The heat is turning up on this, and the obama regime is getting desperate.  We KNOW that Ambassador Stevens was trafficking weapons to Al Queda via the Turkish diplomat that he met with the night of his own rape, torture and murder. We KNOW that the obama/clinton/rice klan tried to blame an obscure video that had been out for over three months, and had only 17 views.  We KNOW that the obama/clinton/panetta klan received three different requests for assistance and that they denied those requests.  We KNOW that the military officials who attempted to help Ambassador Stevens have either been murdered or relieved of their duties.  We know that the obama regime were fully aware of the security threats ahead of the 9/11/12 terrorist attacks and that it was not a “spontaneous” attack, as they, and UN Ambassador Rice, attempted to portray it.   The obama regime has committed TREASON, and We, The People have every intention of pursuing this matter until they are brought to justice for their crimes against this Nation and our Military forces.  They will NOT escape their treasonous crimes. We WILL get to the bottom of it, and we WILL hold them accountable.

White House Tries to Throw Military Under Bus

6:37 PM, Oct 27, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER

Yesterday, the CIA insisted that “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.” The denial is in reference to the report that the CIA held back forces from helping the Americans who were under attack in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11.

And today, the White House is making a similar claim. “Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi,”…..(Con’t)

We Demand To See The Presidential Order To Secure The Consulate In Benghazi!

October 28, 2012 1 comment

On Friday former Assistant Secretary of Defense Bing West told Greta Van Susteren that if Obama gave the order to secure the consulate in Benghazi on 9-11 there would be a paper trail.

 

This morning Bing West doubled down.
West does not believe there ever was a presidential order:

“In my judgement the audio track will show the White House knew that there was an attack going on. The real critical issue is the president says that he immediately ordered all available assets to help. The military would have put out an order from the president. There’s no question about that… What I’m asking is, “Show us the order!” Mr. President if you said use everything available and our military immediately sent out the order, simply show us the order. I have great reservations that there is no such order.

 

This morning Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) told FOX News Sunday that we need to find out if this presidential order was ever issued.

Furious Military Families Are Outing the obama Regime

October 27, 2012 4 comments

[TWG:  It’s appalling to me that we have Veterans and current members of the Military supporting obama and his marxist regime.  They are TRAITORS, spitting in the faces and on the graves  of each and every one of our Veterans who’ve ever served this Nation in the fight against fascist dictators and evildoers.   General Colin Powell expressed support for that marxist back during the ’08 “election”, and reiterated his support for marxism last week.  Apparently, General Powell approves of the fact that  marxist obama, clinton and panetta is responsible for the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi, two of them being Navy SEAL’s. He approves of the fact that the obama regime were trafficking weapons to muslim  terrorists within al queda and the muslim brotherhood, and that the obama regime’s PROVEN allegiance is with islamic terrorists. Apparently, the Veterans and members of the Military currently supporting the marxists approve of how they’re handling islam and in their marxist/fascist ideologies.  THEY ARE TRAITORS TO THIS NATION AND TO EVERY VETERAN WHO HAS EVER SERVED. CALL THEM WHAT THEY ARE.  MARXIST TRAITORS.]

Military Families are Outing Obama

By Karin McQuillan

American military and State Department families that have lost their sons in the war against Islamic jihadis are outing President Obama for playing politics with the lives (and deaths) of their sons.  Speaking out in some of the most painful interviews ever shown on television, they directly blame the president for the loss of their sons’ lives.  Their accusations speak directly to Obama’s competence in defending our national security.

Iran is on the brink of possessing nuclear weapons.  Egypt’s elected President Mubarak, the keystone to stability in the Middle East for the last 30 years, was pressured by President Obama to step down in favor of the terror group the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Benghazi embassy was denied Marine protection, even on 9/11, with the subsequent tragedy and White House cover-up.  We haven’t lost an ambassador since Jimmy Carter’s incompetence.  Obama’s Middle East policy has been a disaster, with one exception — the killing of Osama bin Laden by Navy SEAL Team 6.

The president ran the special ops raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound with one eye on national security and the other on political opportunism.  Intelligence was compromised because there was political advantage to Obama to do so.  Within a day, the White House divulged details of the attack, including that it was carried out by SEAL Team Six.

Three months later, 22 men from SEAL Team 6 were dead, victims of Obama’s policies and politics.  This story has been buried, until this 9/11….(Con’t)
