Newsletter comment: I watched much of the hearing marathon yesterday and frankly, it was a waste of time.

All I learned was that Hillary had text her daughter that evening and stated it was an Al-Qaeda type of attack, which is what she reported to Egypt the next morning. Thus she and certainly others knew in real time it was an organized terrorist attack, not a video that took the lives of four Americans. But the news of a terrorist attack during that pre-election season wouldn’t do, thus the shameless video lie was born by the administration.

Much of the hearing in my opinion was a sham with Dems crying foul and giving her cover and too many GOP questioners making the case it was some witch hunt leading us down some needless rabbit trail. Too few on the committee were interested in the truth in my opinion.

Another select hearing that has come to nothing… I expected more from Gowdy and his team… Once again the parties refuse to come together to learn valuable lessons or to improve the security of those Americans serving abroad. Roger Young, co-editor

Newsletter comment: I listened to some of the testimony by former CIA assistant director Morrell on Benghazi today.

It is clear to me that the brass pays far more attention to what some analyst in Langley believes, then what a station chief or other eyewitnesses are reporting on the ground. That’s messed up.

He also explained that the Langley analysts were not privy to what those on the scene were reporting in real time. Knowing that it begs the question, why is their analysis given so much weight?

Of course this is nothing new. LTC Hal Moore’s after-action report on the battle of the Ia Drang Valley in Nov ’65 were ignored by McNamara and his “whiz kids” for what they WANTED to believe. Little changes! – Roger Young, co-editor

Newsletter comment: I’ve never seen such cowards in the White House & State Department. They want to shift the blame on the intelligence community when Mr. Hicks in Tripoli was reporting from the start of the attack in Benghazi that it was a terrorist attack on that facility as reported to him by Ambassador Stevens.

In my opinion, the talking points were changed to give Sec. Clinton and the White House cover for their actions of cutting security at the facility, period. And they both went out before the television cameras when the bodies of our brave Americans were returned to U.S. soil and in front of the families with the caskets in the background, continued to lie to the families, the American people, and the entire world. And they continue those same lies today. This is an absolute disgrace! – Roger

Newsletter comment: Is this all the good General could offer? I don’t care who changed his memo! I don’t care about what Susan Rice said on network TV. These are the questions I want answers for:

1) Who repeatedly denied requests for increased security and why?

2) Who told the SEALS to “stand down” and not go to the aid of the Consulate under attack and why?

3) Who denied them help when they were fighting for their lives at the annex and why?

This is the usual Potomac two-step, just pointing fingers at various agencies without ever getting to the truth.  We are being led down rabbit trails in my opinion. – Roger Young, editor

Newsletter comment: Perhaps if the President would answer any direct questions concerning Benghazi, except “it’s under investigation,” we could get some real answers to why four Americans died and their repeated requests for increased security before the attack were denied, and why their requests for help during the attack went unanswered.

It is clear to me that this President does not feel he is obligated to answer any questions to the American people. – Roger

EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say By Jennifer Griffin – 26 Oct 12

Newsletter observation: We now know since this deadly attack the following:

1) Leading up to the attack, the State Department repeatedly denied official requests to increase security as recommended by the Ambassador and his security team on the ground in Libya. In fact, the State Department reduced the security prior to the attack according to earlier hearings in the House that took place following this tragedy.

2) As the attack was underway, Jennifer Griffin reported above that the CIA reportedly refused multiple requests for help by its operatives under attack at the annex. The CIA denies those reports – Roger Young

Newsletter comment: The debacle in Benghazi which cost the lives of four American patriots, reminds me of a similar debacle during the Vietnam war which led to the fall of Lima Site 85 in Laos. In Benghazi there were repeated requests to the State Department by their U.S. security teams on the ground for additional personnel to guard the vulnerable Consulate at Benghazi.  Those requests were denied according to recent House testimony.

At Lima Site 85, a top-secret radar installation manned by U.S. Air Force personnel disguised as civilian contractors, in early March 1968 MACV in Saigon knew the installation was in imminent danger of attack by the NVA and the U.S. Ambassador in Laos rejected MACV’s evacuation request and the site was overrun on 11 March 1968 and 11 Americans were killed.

Our State Department has many dedicated and brave Americans serving our country around the world.  Unfortunately, far too often, the bureaucrats in D.C. who are career driven guided by politics call the shots from the safety of their desks which can have disastrous outcomes for those in harms way.  Without personal accountability, we are likely doomed to see more such bad calls around this increasingly turbulent world.

The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington’…”

Opinion: Could the Benghazi attack be Obama’s Tet? by Earl Tilford – 28 Sep 12

Comment: As the author pointed out, it is unlikely that the Obama administration will take any blame for the deadly attack in Benghazi or the way this tragic event was initially “spun” by the administration and mainstream media. During Vietnam we had a media that was critical of the strategy unlike today a media that avoids asking the tough questions or holding this administration accountable for any of their decisions.

Our individual freedoms have always hinged on a free and independent press that would question power and seek the truth. Unfortunately those days appear to be behind us. Sometimes like the ’68 Tet the press got it wrong – Tet was a major defeat for the Viet Cong, not a military victory – but at least they were asking the tough questions and had every right to question the Johnson/McNamara strategy of ‘escalated response’ that would not take the war to the North or their sanctuaries in Cambodia & Laos

    Roger,
    Thanks for posting this. There is so much behind this and the American people believe to know the truth as do the families of the victims. Heck I would like to know. everyday new information comes out and everyday a new story is contrived it seems, or the silence is deafening.
    This is clearly a cover-up to protect a reelection campaign.
    When support is justified and needed and then your told to stand down what do they expect to happen. I would like those that gave that order, to explain to me. “Just how you stand down when your under direct attack?”
    In my book when needed support is needed, requested, and then denied only one conclusion can be made. The victims were written off a expendable by the powers that be including the President.
    I resent the comments made by Obama and Clinton when the Bodies arrived at Andrews. Clearly there was something terribly wrong and they continued the some old line they knew was a lie. Obama could not even look the victims families in the eye when he went to “console” them. What a fraud!! According to one of the Navy SEALS father.
    Unfortunately the Campaign Trail and Fund Raising has priority over the Murder of a US Ambassador and 3 other Americans in a Consulate facility.
    This whole situation has been a disgrace since it happened. I wonder if we will ever get to the truth. Of course the mainstream media is blowing this off. They would not want their boy to look bad.
    This whole situation is disgusting and disgraceful.
    Chuck

    Bear,

    I want to say that I was saddened by the loss of those brave men. I had the great honor of meeting LTG Hal Moore and seeing again our old friend Joe Galloway in Skokie, Il a few years ago. Where are our Generals and Civil Leaders like General Moore? Has our country stopped producing such men? The World is in danger if we have lost the ability to be brave and decisive.

    • avatar Administrator says:

      Al, I agree completely. I was taken back by the SECDEF’s statement that because they weren’t completely aware of exactly what was going on, they couldn’t send help. If that had been the criteria for us serving in Nam, we seldom would have flown a mission in support of U.S. infantry and ARVN units in trouble.

      I fear the military leadership like that of LTG Moore are long gone.

  3. avatar Bear says:

    I doubt most Americans remember, but recall the Libya mess began with President Obama authorizing military action without Congressional approval along with NATO forces to “liberate” Libya.

    We didn’t get many answers back then either from our President. To refresh our memories, please see: Next Stop, Libya?

    • avatar Roger Young says:

      Here it is January 2014, and with the recent revelations posted above, we now know FOR CERTAIN, that the White House and Secretary Clinton LIED to the American people, the families and the world blaming the attack on a YouTube video. Within minutes after the attack, intelligence was reporting to them that it was a terrorist attack. And yet they LIED to all of us and sent Susan Rice out on the MSM circuit to push their lies. Why? Because it fit their political aspirations and the story on the election trail that AQ was dead and GM was alive! And that is despicable in my book!

      To this very day, no one has been brought to justice as the President promised for the attack on our consulate and CIA Annex in Libya. And no one within this administration has been held accountable for the multiple refusals to enhance security in Benghazi leading up to the anniversary of 9-11.
