Obama in the NMCC and the top honchos from State, DoD, NSA, CIA watched in real time from at least two separate platforms, while Obama ordered rescue units to stand down, even as Americans, including Obama's own ambassador were under direct attack by known hostiles.
Who could possibly say with a straight face that the heads of the various alphabet agencies would take on this responsibility, endangering an ambassador and numerous other individuals on their watch?
No, even Hillary was smart enough to see that one coming, and most likely has some very damning info stored away safely.
Amb. Stevens' Former Deputy: Special Forces Were Told 'You Can't Go' to Benghazi During Attack

White House tries to deflect criticism from Benghazi whistle-blowers
By Susan Crabtree, The Washington Times, Monday, May 6, 2013
The White House on Monday attempted to deflect new criticism on the administration's handling of the Benghazi attacks from a firsthand witness and an additional whistle-blower, arguing that an internal State Department review charged with investigating the September attacks was led by an "unimpeachable" team.
When confronted with reports of new complaints by whistle-blowers preparing to testify Wednesday before a House committee looking into the Benghazi attacks, Mr. Carney repeatedly touted the credentials of the two men charged with conducting the State Department's Accountability Review Board and called their investigation "unsparing" and "highly critical."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's Libyan Ambassador
Hillary Clinton's Big Benghazi Lie
Katie Pavlich, May 08, 2013
CAPITOL HILL - Testimony given Wednesday on Capitol Hill by Greg Hicks, Benghazi whistleblower and deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya, exposed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a liar.
While political pundits and media analysts who live in an alternative universe (also known as the left-wing) scream conspiracy theory from the rooftops, we are witnessing an historic event playing out in the form of the Benghazi hearings. Reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's infamous accusations of a "vast right-wing conspiracy" when the House impeached her husband, everyone from Al Sharpton to Debbie Wasserman Schultz is demonizing the House Oversight Committee for staging a "witch hunt" in order to understand what happened the night that four American citizens were murdered by al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists in Libya. But despite Obama and Clinton's combined political savvy (coupled with a complicit and disinterested mainstream media), a Shakespearean tragedy that will make Watergate look like child's play may very well be unfolding.
Gen. Hayden: Continuing Benghazi Lie 'Not Forgivable'
Thursday, 09 May 2013 06:23 PM, By Greg Richter and Kathleen Walter
The continuation of a false narrative for weeks after the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead is "not understandable and is not forgivable," former director of the National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency Gen.l Michael Hayden told Newsmax TV.
The Three Whistleblowers at the Benghazi hearing spoke softly, but with the emotional wallop of The Three Tenors. They told the truth, and it blasted like thunder through Obama's tissue palace of lies.

Report: Benghazi Whistleblower Is a Democratâ€¦Who Voted for Hillary Clinton & Obama
May. 12, 2013 12:32pm Madeleine Morgenstern
Gregory Hicks, the Benghazi whistleblower who said he was "demoted" after challenging the Obama administration's response to the attack, is a registered Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, according to the Daily Caller.
King Obama cannot be bothered by such trivial things, and the second part of the story not being reported... Obama said he knew nothing about the attack as it progressed, he went to bed was the story line.
This story says differently; "kept up to date on this as it was happening", so Obama was aware of the attack as it progressed and yet he did nothing. As Commander and Chief he abandoned those Americans, including his own Ambassador to a certain death... that is treason and murder.
I'll go with the initial reports that Obama was watching the attack unfold in real time and personally pulled the plug on a rescue to cover up the gun running to Libyan and Syrian Islamist (Al Qaeda) Rebels.
Try to deny it as you will, but NO subordinate would make such a major decision... denying support to an "embassy" that is under a major attack? NO frigging way.

PJMedia is reporting of an interview with these diplomats:
The former diplomats inform PJM the new revelations concentrate in two areas — what Ambassador Chris Stevens was actually doing in Benghazi and the pressure put on General Carter Ham, then in command of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and therefore responsible for Libya, not to act to protect jeopardized U.S. personnel.
Stevens’ mission in Benghazi, they will say, was to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups issued to them by the State Department, not by the CIA. Such a mission would usually be a CIA effort, but the intelligence agency had opposed the idea because of the high risk involved in arming “insurgents” with powerful weapons that endanger civilian aircraft.
Hillary Clinton still wanted to proceed because, in part, as one of the diplomats said, she wanted “to overthrow Gaddafi on the cheap.”
This left Stevens in the position of having to clean up the scandalous enterprise when it became clear that the “insurgents” actually were al-Qaeda – indeed, in the view of one of the diplomats, the same group that attacked the consulate and ended up killing Stevens.
Al-Qaeda Terrorist Makes Explosive Benghazi Claim: Amb. Chris Stevens Given Lethal Injection After Kidnapping Went Bad

Al Qaeda Terrorist Claims Ambassador Chris Stevens Was Killed by Lethal Injection
A "weapons expert" with al-Qaeda is claiming that slain U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed by lethal injection after plans to kidnap him during the deadly Sept. 11 attacks in Benghazi went awry.
This is the reason the Ambassador (on a secret State Department "Operation") and the Former SEALS (on a separate secret CIA mission) were in Benghazi... to recover MANPADS that the Obama regime had supplied to Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists.
The missile systems are now starting to show up all over the middle east. Documents Found In Abandoned Al-Qaeda Buildings In Mali Suggest Group Has Feared MANPAD Surface-To-Air Missiles...

Guns for Drugs!
www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/drugs/archive/gunsdrugscia.html That was the original operation and it is still on going since we the people found no problem with it when Col Ollie North(USMC) and Admiral Poindexter were running it under Nixon and Reagan. Since then we have had Fast and Furious, and then Benghazi, and now Syria and Mali. So long as we the people approve of these violations to our Constitution how can we complain about others.
Last Edit: Jun 12, 2013 13:31:13 GMT -5 by watchful
Benghazi was specifically a gun running operation, the so called "embassy" a CIA black ops center, the Ambassador on a covert Operation to recover weapons.
Iran-Contra was a whole different type of op and I know a quite a bit about that one. Illegal... Yep. Unconstitutional... Yep. Cover Up... Yep.
But still VERY different from Benghazi, this scandal rips the republics roots out, A sitting president Watched in real time HIS embassy under attack. With HIS Ambassador in peril and under direct threat of death, the president orders a stand down for nothing else but political reasons.
TREASON of the highest order.

Tired of Waiting for Answers: Darrell Issa Subpoenas Four State Dept. Officials for Benghazi Info
Jun. 24, 2013 11:55pm Jason Howerton
WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) - The chairman of the House Oversight Committee has subpoenaed four State Department officials as part of the panel's investigation of the deadly assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year.
After months of fiery hearings and vows to get to the bottom of Benghazi, House Republicans are now barely making a peep when it comes to an issue they once couldn't stop talking about.
Democrats say Republicans are lacking damaging evidence against the Obama administration in the aftermath of the attacks on U.S. diplomatic outposts in Libya. They argue the House GOP is in retreat over the investigation that some conservatives believed could bring down the White House or tar a 2016 presidential candidate.
And some conservatives are concerned that their leadership isn't pursuing Benghazi with enough zest.
If they can't get as far as telling the people that the Compound in Bengazi was not a Consulate, or an Embassy, but just a weapons distribution center how can they tell the rest of the truth. Stephens was an ambassador not a President. If he went to this compound it did not automatically become a Consulate.
Once more the Republican leadership has sailed their boat onto the rocks.
The People who were in Bengazi are SPYS not embassy workers. The last thing they need is to sit on CNN and tell all. They all have families, friends, and fellow employees who if they appear will die.
The State Department got caught with their drawers down and every body died.
Pentagon does about-face on key Benghazi witness, makes Marine colonel available to talk to Congress
* Col. George Bristol was in charge of Special Operations Forces in Northern Africa on the night of the Benghazi, Libya terror attack * The Dept. of Defense had refused to tell Congress where to find him, claiming that he was retired and entitled to protection under privacy laws * After pressure from Sen. Lindsey Graham, the Pentagon has changed its mind - now acknowledging that Bristol is not yet retired * Questions remain about why commandos were not sent to Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, even though a team was standing by to board a plane

New Benghazi Details Revealed in Bombshell CNN Report: 'Unprecedented' Effort Underway to Keep Secrets From Leaking
Aug. 1, 2013 5:03pm Jason Howerton
The CIA is polygraphing its operatives on a regular basis in an "unprecedented" effort to prevent Benghazi secrets from leaking out, CNN's Drew Griffin is reporting, citing unnamed inside sources.
"Since January, some CIA operatives involved in the agency's missions in Libya, have been subjected to frequent, even monthly polygraph examinations, according to a source with deep inside knowledge of the agency’s workings," the bombshell report reveals. "The goal of the questioning, according to sources, is to find out if anyone is talking to the media or Congress."
It is like the Bradley Manning case. They (the administration) realizes that very soon there will be a test of their classification programs. The know that most of what Manning shared would not qualify as Classified Information under the many lawful descriptions on the books. They know that Obama's Executive Orders on the subject were not in anyway descriptive of the information that Snowden and Manning leaked out.
To protect their jobs and their personal actions outside of other law they must rely not on the rule of law, but on the rule of force. When Wikileaks began publishing their inner most thoughts and comments to each other they became as we are over the NSA doing the same thing to us.
After all they are the rulers not the serfs!
So to keep the door on truth shut as long as possible they have to use intimidation which can only be punished if the employee quits and goes into hiding after reporting. Thus you need to cut the pipeline above the whistle. Cut it at reporters like Hastings.
Go back and read forward from the beginning of this thread and see how far ahead of the curve we were in the analysis of this scandal.
CIA 'running arms smuggling team in Benghazi when consulate was attacked'
The CIA has been subjecting operatives to monthly polygraph tests in an attempt to suppress details of a US arms smuggling operation in Benghazi that was ongoing when its ambassador was killed by a mob in the city last year, according to reports.
By Damien McElroy, 11:06AM BST 02 Aug 2013
Up to 35 CIA operatives were working in the city during the attack last September on the US consulate that resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, according to CNN.
The circumstances of the attack are a subject of deep division in the US with some Congressional leaders pressing for a wide-ranging investigation into suspicions that the government has withheld details of its activities in the Libyan city.
The television network said that a CIA team was working in an annex near the consulate on a project to supply missiles from Libyan armouries to Syrian rebels.
