The Truth about Benghazi. President Obama reacted swifter than Bush did on 9/11. While Republicans out CIA Operations.

New details have been released regarding the reaction to the terrorist attacks in Benghazi. Unlike, President Bush who sat in a catatonic stupor while thousands of Americans died, President Obama was engaged and understood the nature of the emergency within minutes.
The CIA rushed security operatives to an American diplomatic compound in Libya within 24 minutes of its coming under attack and played a more central role in the effort to fend off a night-long siege than has been acknowledged publicly, U.S. intelligence officials said Thursday.
The agency mobilized the evacuation effort, took control of an unarmed U.S. military drone to map possible escape routes, dispatched an emergency security team from Tripoli, the capital, and chartered aircraft that ultimately carried surviving American personnel to safety, U.S. officials said. 
 The biggest revelation is that Benghazi was a covert CIA action,
The U.S. effort in Benghazi was at its heart a CIA operation, according to officials briefed on the intelligence. Of the more than 30 American officials evacuated from Benghazi following the deadly assault, only seven worked for the State Department. Nearly all the rest worked for the CIA, under diplomatic cover, which was a principal purpose of the consulate, these officials said.
Of course, Faux News and Republican buffoons in their rush to Impeach President Obama have no compunction about outing CIA agents, undermining national security or covert operations. Anything which they can use to slander Barack Obama is fodder for their propaganda machine.

But, despite the revelations Faux News is way too invested in their Benghazi Bullshit to give up now. Faux News has staked too much on Benghazi as a vehicle to eliminate President Obama to drop their campaign of lies.

But, what they will never do is bring forth a credible witness, or a CIA "whistle blower", or actual official documents or any REAL EVIDENCE. No Faux will rely on Newt Gingrich, a man who has no connection to the military as he was a big, fat cowardly, chicken hawk who hasn't held office in over a decade to mention "rumors I've heard". And Peter Johnson Jr. to offer up his smears while he says "I have no evidence for this." While Sean Hannity engages in his nightly tirades of bigotry, bluster and bullshit.

Officials say that U.S. forces from Europe and Fort Bragg in North Carolina were dispatched in an effort to help, but they arrived too late. Officials considered sending U.S. warplanes from Italy, but it was decided that dropping bombs would lead to civilian casualties.
CIA officials in Washington strongly deny there was any order not to mount a rescue mission. And the source tells NPR there was never an order to stay put. It was all about getting ready, not delaying. Within 24 minutes, the American and Libyan team moved out toward the consulate.
 So, the Republicans will never convene a real hearing in which military officers and service men are brought forth to testify. No because their testimony under oath would move to exonerate President Obama. No official proceeding will ever occur in which CIA operatives and State Department officials give testimony because there will be NO EVIDENCE to support the Bullshit Slanders Republican Congressmen and Senators have been alleging with reckless abandon on Faux News.

Instead, Republicans will talk real tough about how mad they are and let Faux News run with OUTRIGHT LIES, smears, innuendoes, falsehoods in an effort to Impeach President Obama in the fevered minds of the Alternate Conservative Reality.

People died while Obumbles dithered.

The Ambassador asked for more security and Obumbles did nothing.

That's the bottom line.

FOX didn't "out" CIA agents. YOU just did!

Keep plugging your lies Silverfiddle, The Republican Party and Faux News fucked CIA agents and Libyan contacts in their effort to get Obama.

the yellow fringe said...

All this is based on the neo-con idea that we should use force anywhere everywhere and always, and that our technology lets us be everywhere in time to spank bad guys. I have a friend who was a marine in an embassy. She told me around the world embassies can have their own small military unit, in our case it's a few marines, who by the way can only operate on the property. Consulates may not have military from the nation represented. Consulates can hire a couple of guards, the rest of their security has to come from either bribing or friending or embarassing local police and military to help, which in this case a local group of police and tribal types came to help and many of them were killed. She told me consulates are not embassies, the same territorial claims and rights do not exist, it's little more than a business office. So it comes back to the right starting to accept the defeat coming with the millionaire loser they stupidly picked, all thats left is steal the election which I don't think their voter suppression will get done, so find a reason to impeach him, and even if he did what they can't and won't ever prove, it is not impeachable. Not going to the aid of another government employee in a foreign country breaks No law. none, none, show me the law broken, never will, never can, it's a dead-enders rant.

Silverfiddle said...

The Yellow Fringe's friend is correct. I have been there.

The fact still remains, however, that the Ambassador asked for more security and Obama refused to provide it.

Grung_e_Gene said...

No silverfiddle the fact remains Conservatives are highly selective in their outrage. You shill for Right-Wing ghouls who have no problem letting thousands of Americans die.

You only ever get angry when a D fucks up and get wildly aggressive and protective when an R does.

And if the a General (Colin Powell, James Jones, Eric Shinseki) or CIA member (Valerie Plame George Tenet) needs to be cast under the bus or 5000 service men need to be sacrificed to advance Republican power than so be it.

Mittmentum Baby! Las Vegas Journal Review (from swing state Nevada) ANNIHILATES O'Dingleberry as worthless, unworthy, perverse and destructive. Game over!

This administration is an embarrassment on foreign policy and incompetent at best on the economy - though a more careful analysis shows what can only be a perverse and willful attempt to destroy our prosperity

These behaviors go far beyond "spin." They amount to a pack of lies. To return to office a narcissistic amateur who seeks to ride this nation's economy and international esteem to oblivion, like Slim Pickens riding the nuclear bomb to its target at the end of the movie "Dr. Strangelove," would be disastrous.

Double r,

your name makes more sense by the context of your comments when the terms Reactionary and Racist are used in lieu of "radical" and "redneck".

reactionary racist , as to your comment it adds nothing other than to show the ignorant delusions of right-wingers.

I don't know if anyone remembers Romney attacking President Obama, then smirking after his ill timed and not very well received comments on Libya.
4 Americans died in the service of their country.
No opportunity is too low for Romney to use in his pathetic grasp for power.
