    Re: Obama Administration Officials Threatened Whistle-Blowers On Benghazi, Lawyer Say

    yesterday:

    An American special operator with intimate knowledge of the Sept. 11, 2012 attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, says that U.S. forces could have intervened in the hours-long attack, but didn’t.

    “There simply was not enough time for U.S. military forces to have made a difference,” retired Admiral Mike Mullen — vice chairman of the accountability review board that investigated the administration’s response — told reporters on Dec. 19, 2012.

    But Fox News Channel reported Monday evening that the administration’s claim is untrue, according to an anonymous “special operator who watched the events unfold [and] has debriefed those who were a part of the response.”

    “I know for a fact that C-110, the EUCOM CIF was doing a training exercise, not in the region of North Africa, but in Europe. And they had the ability to act and to respond,” the source told Fox News’ Adam Housley. ”We had the ability to load out, get on birds and fly there, at a minimum stage. C-110 had the ability to be there, in my opinion, in a matter of about four—about four hours, four to six hours from their European theater, to react.”

    “They would have been there before the second attack,” realizes Housley, referring to the second strike on U.S. personnel in Benghazi that killed two former U.S. Navy SEALs — 41-year-old Tyrone Woods and 42-year-old Glen Doherty. According to a Pentagon timeline, that attack took place over 7 hours after the first strike on the U.S. consulate, where Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed.

    “They would have been there before the second attack,” agreed the special operator. “They would have been there at a minimum to provide a quick reaction force that could facilitate their exfil out of the problem situation. Nobody knew how it was going to develop. And you hear a whole bunch of people and a whole bunch of advisors say, hey, we wouldn’t have sent them there because the security was [an] unknown situation.”

    What would you expect? Looks to me like you instantly saw the incredibly weak sourcing of Fox News and Washington Times and did a preemptive defense of pretending to be Nostrodamous when in fact it seems you knew the sources were terrible.

    Re: Obama Administration Officials Threatened Whistle-Blowers On Benghazi, Lawyer Say

    this morning

    The U.S. has identified the mastermind of the Benghazi attack, sources tell Fox News, though the individual apparently is walking free in Libya.

    The confirmation from multiple sources comes more than seven months after the assault on two U.S. locations in Benghazi, Libya, where four Americans -- including Ambassador Chris Stevens -- were killed. President Obama pledged after the attack that "justice will be done."

    But one source told Fox News the government is "sitting on" information.

    "We basically don't want to upset anybody, and the problem is, if Ambassador Stevens' family knew that we were sitting on information about the people who killed their son, their brother, on and on, then, and we could look them as a government in the face, then we're messing up. We're messing up," the source said.

    Fox News spoke exclusively with one special operator who watched the events unfold in real time and has debriefed those who were part of the response. He remains anonymous for his safety and has decided to talk because he says he and others connected with the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi are frustrated with the excuses and lack of a military response since Stevens and three other Americans were killed.

    "We have all the capability, all the training, all the capacity, to kill and capture not only terrorists involved, with the specific events of 9/11, and Ambassador Stevens' death, but terrorists that are feeding other regions including Europe that could eventually affect our national security in the short term," the source said. "And we're not talking midterm or long-term, this is the short-term."

    The source said "it's a daily frustration."

    Again I will remind you, you didn't include the CIA in the post I noted...you are dodging my point. But even at that, no real proof of anything but what one Republican operative claims. Until the supposed career CIA and State people step up it is just gossip.

    It proves nada.

    I didn't have to prove anything except that I quoted the OP. That's it.

    Here's the post.
    At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.
    Apparently you didn't see the number four (4) earlier and now you claim you can't read Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

    The "real proof" is yet to come, yes. But we do know that
    At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.
    Please re-read the sentence and get it clear before you respond again.

That cannot make sense, even to you. What is the matter with people and the inability to understand even the simplest of words and phrases?

    Go back and read what I said again. I never once said it didn't matter who was responsible for murdering the four Americans, I said we shouldn't worry about who on our side dropped the ball (at this point) and instead focus on the why of how the process failed. Just go back and read it again and if you have an ounce of integrity you'll apologize.
    Yeah, yeah, yeah.... everybody in this thread but you is stupid. Nobody is smart enough to understand you. We've heard it over and over again.

    It's very obvious that you and your ilk don't want to find out who's behind the curtain controlling the conversation. We prefer to hold the people responsible for these deaths accountable, including both the ones in Libya and in our government.

    Perhaps the shoe you mentioned fits you.

    Obama was asked the question, and he said he'd look into it. So there you have it, we're good to go. He said he would check it out.
