    How Can This Not Be at the Top of the News Everywhere?

    When I first heard Tyron Woods had laser painted the mortar position I wondered why he did so if there was not a weapon in the vicinity to bomb it. I didn't say anything here because I really don't know that much about these new weapons but some very interesting facts and questions about this are coming out. Stuff like this is breaking out all over the web in military and other sites.


    "The Benghazi coverup is much worse than you think. Clearly there were air assets on the scene above the CIA annex and they were denied permission to fire.
    Tyrone Woods was painting a target with a ground laser designator (GLD). Those are only used when the air asset is overhead, ready to fire. The jihadis can use cell phones with night-vision capabilities to see the laser beam, which then pinpoints the location of the person using the GLD. As a former Navy SEAL, Woods wouldíve known that. He would only have exposed himself if he thought that the mortar squad was about to be taken out. The air asset didnít fire, and Woods and Glen Doherty were killed by the mortar squad.
    There was either a Spectre gunship or an armed Predator or Reaper drone overhead, and it was denied permission to fire. Thatís the only explanation that fits. Woods would not have used his GLD for any other reason than to paint a target for an immediate air strike.
    Only the commander of AFRICOM and the president have the authority to tell the air asset to not fire in this situation.Ē

    There was a drone overhead and transmitting video. So far, the folks who were in charge won't say if it was armed or not. The coverup here is an Obamanation.

    As with soooo many of the Right Wing outrages it might not be on all the news sites either because it isnt true or there is no evidence it is true.

    If the default is permission to attack and there are only 2 people who can over-tide that decision, why would they have done so? It seems more like nobody knew what was going on so where would this decision have occurred.

    Any thoughts? (this is a non-partisan question)

    I still haven't got a good answer for what is supposedly covered up?

    There has to be some awful crime/blunder/secret to protect if you want to cover something up. What was it?

    You also have to have a reasonable expectation that you can cover it up. Having an ambassador killed isn't one of those instances.

    From what I have seen and read there were no assets that could get there in time. I doubt that anyone gave a no fire order unless they had the wrong ordanecnce on board that would cause a lot of colateral damage and kill our own guys. Not everthing in the air can put firepower on specific targets in an urban battle enviornment. I dont know what was there, I doubt anyone without a securtiy clearnece does either, and that includes Fox News.

    The big question here is why did Tyron paint a target and let the enemy see his position if he didn't think the target would be immediately taken out? My guess is the drone circling overhead was armed. Time will tell, the truth is coming out.

    What if Woods thought there was an armed drone about to fire overhead, but the drone was not armed? Is there evidence to support the assertion that "there was either a Sectre gunship or an armed Predator or Reaper drone overhead"? I have read that it was an unarmed surveillance drone.

    Where did you read it was unarmed? Everyone I have seen interviewed on the subject that would know refuses to answer.

    I may have implied it from it being referred to as a "surveillance" drone. Sorry.
