CBS News REPORT: Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy decided NOT to send FEST to Benghazi
May 17th, 2013
This is a very interesting article by Sharyl Attkisson at CBS News. It’s very long and covers different topics surrounding Benghazi, from the decision not to deploy FEST to how the talking points came about.
The quote below talks about how certain anonymous White House officials say that the missteps in Benghazi was less about malice and more about incompetence. For instance, they claim that the reasoning behind not deploying the counterterrorism unit known as FEST stemmed from a misunderstanding of FEST’s role and ability. One official does pin the decision not to send in FEST on Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy, though the State Dept. would not admit to it.
If all of this is true in the report, the bottom line is whether it was incompetence or malice, it’s completely and utterly unacceptable and the truth should be made known to the American people.

Barry thinks it was worth. America and the PEOPLE don't think so and it may cost him the presidency when all is exposed.

Pat Smith: “Yes, they actually did, and Susan Rice also.”

“She came over…she talked with me. I gave her a hug and shook her hand and she did not appear to be one bit sincere at all and she mentioned about, ‘We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video.’,” recalled Mr. Woods. “That was the first time I even heard about anything like thathttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vSzdOPz1X0Prove he did.

You're aware that Woods and Doherty violated stand down orders to help their fellow countrymen at the embassy correct? They were not stationed at the Embassy. The stand down orders came after Woods and Doherty rescued dozens of Americans on their own and made it back to annex.
Woods and Doherty called again for military support as they began to take on gunfire at the annex. Again, the request was denied. According to those present at the compound, there were no communications problems at the annex, and the team was in constant radio contact with headquarters. Ty Woods was manning a machine gun on the annex roof at the time. He painted a targeting laser on the enemy mortar that later killed him after calling for support from a Spectre gunship that never arrived.Diplomat Says Questions Over Benghazi Led to Demotion - NYTimes.comProve this.
But within days, Mr. Hicks said, after raising questions about the account of what had happened in Benghazi offered in television interviews by Susan E. Rice, the United Nations ambassador, he felt a distinct chill from State Department superiors. “The sense I got was that I needed to stop the line of questioning,” said Mr. Hicks, who has been a Foreign Service officer for 22 years.
He was soon given a scathing review of his management style, he said, and was later “effectively demoted” to desk officer at headquarters, in what he believes was retaliation for speaking up.It is a major scandal and it is not going away, despite all your whining and cryingIt's not a scandal.
Seriously, you would rather apologize for a group of thugs politicians who value their political carreers more than they value human life.
The IRS scandal is GROWING as you Libs desperately grasp at irrelevent talking points to cover for your innabillity to effectively analyze a candidate.
Maybe next time you will do 5 minutes of research ( which is all it took to understand Obama wasn't qualified to run a Dip-n-Dots stand at a cheap parking lot Carnival let alone our Nation ) and not subject the rest of us to a group of low life Chicago scum that thinks they can lie their way every scandal that pops up.
I can't figure out what your'e so proud about. Obama has currently two choices.
Fess up and admit he was there when Americans were being killed in Benghazi and admit he was well aware of the IRS's malfeasance and illegal leaking of Conservative groups donor list to left wing fringe organizations OR admit he's the first President in History to be totally disconnected from his administration.
You show up here almost daily defending the worst manager and leader wev'e ever had. A guy who they just roll out to read the teleprompter in between golf games and Soul Train extravaganza's at the White House.
Or your'e defending a guy who's so Narcisistic and dishonest he was well aware of every aspect of the IRS's IG's report 3 weeks before he claimed he learned about it on the News and no amount of damage to this Country or loss of trust from the American Citizens, real Americans not people that sold out any semblance of integrity to follow a corrupt party, will make him do what any man with even an ounce of character would do.
And you guys have the nerve to critique President Bush, a President who's " scandal's " were figments of the Democrat leadership and people disconnected from reality on internet forums.
You bitched about his" lies "and then you a elected a liar.
You bitched about his " incompetence " and then you go elect a incompetent.
Nah, you guys wen't from defending his destruction of the ecomy and massive new structural debt to defending him from one scandal after the other with your best defense being " prove it"....
