As more facts are revealed about the events in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11th, 2012, what is becoming increasingly obvious is that President Obama not only lied to the American people about the role of the now-infamous anti-Islam video, but also systematically covered-up the entire fiasco resulting in the deaths of Americans serving at the President’s direction in Libya. The President and others in his administration are playing fast and loose with the facts, and sources now say that there were at least three requests for aid that were denied by the chain of command. This is astonishing news, because what it directly implies is that the President’s statements about his first direction being to secure Americans was a bald-faced lie. President Obama not only lied to the American people, but he and those acting at his direction abandoned Americans on the field of battle. He flew off to Las Vegas, precisely to create an alibi. The problem is, as President of the United States, the White House goes with you wherever you may be. No, there will be no alibis this time, and this President must face the music, but if he is re-elected, he will not. Any political black eye will come long after he begins his new term, if it materializes at all. I can no longer refer to him as “President” Obama. No American president has ever behaved so cravenly. Re-elect him if you like, but he will be “the Coward” on the pages of this blog, for leaving Americans to be slaughtered, some who fought valiantly to save others, giving their lives for their countrymen.
One of the lies being pushed around is that he needed to “get to the bottom of this.” That’s hogwash. We now know that there were Predator drones in the air over the scene, at least one providing a live video feed of the situation on the ground. More, we also know that the valiant Tyrone Woods – one of the Navy Seals killed in this action – maintained contact and was actually ordered to stand down in his efforts to save others before he ignored orders and ultimately gave his life in that pursuit. His father, Charles Woods, has given several interviews, but on Friday night, he gave one to Sean Hannity, and during this interview, we learn a good deal about the character of Tyrone Woods as well as the Marxist Coward. You can play the audio of the phone interview below:
A number of the people in media are ignoring a central point about all of this, and I think it needs to be understood, because it demonstrates the absurdity of the Marxist Coward’s lies. There can be no way that Barack Obama was out of the loop. There can be no way he ever believed this was the result of protests against a video. That entire story was cooked up in the bowels of the Obama campaign. You might ask how I know this with such certainty.
The reports of Friday morning that urgent requests for assistance were denied offers the first bit of evidence. The damning bit of evidence came later in the day, when the CIA put out this statement:
“We can say with confidence that the Agency reacted quickly to aid our colleagues during that terrible evening in Benghazi. Moreover, no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. In fact, it is important to remember how many lives were saved by courageous Americans who put their own safety at risk that night—and that some of those selfless Americans gave their lives in the effort to rescue their comrades.”(emphasis added)
“No one at any level in the CIA.” Notice it does not say “No one at any level.” This qualification is the damning bit. The CIA does not claim that requests for aids weren’t denied. The statement merely claims nobody in the CIA denied them. Once you realize this, it’s now a more important statement, because it doesn’t tell us who did deny such requests, but merely who did not. With that in mind, we must now ask: Who else would have the authority to deny a CIA request? The State Department doesn’t have that authority, except insofar as the request might have been made of them, but it wasn’t. They were asking for military support. That means the Department of Defense.
Those of you who have spent any time around any government operation will know that a situation or request spanning different departments and agencies of this sort will always go all the way up the chain of command, before coming back down. Unless there had been some sort of standing order to the DoD to provide support, there would have been, of necessity, a request up the chain through the CIA, landing on the desk of whom? Ultimately, there is only one office that can then take such a request and issue orders to DoD for such support. Only one. And that office and its occupant were beating feet for Las Vegas on Air Force One. Got it?
That’s right, a move like that can only happen with Presidential approval, either explicitly in advance, in the form of some blanket order, or as events unfold, in the certain terms and context of the moment. Hillary Clinton could not deny such a request. The Department of Defense couldn’t deny such a request. Only the President of the United States, in this case, the Cowardly Marxist, could deny such a request, or refuse to act on it. A President could ignore such a request until the event was over and the request mooted by the outcome, but that sort of request must pass through national command authority.
That’s right people. You want a smoking gun? You want proof that the cowardly Marxist-in-chief knew all along, and was hip-deep in this? There it is. The CIA says no one at any level in the CIA denied such requests. They did not say that there were no such requests, or if there were, what had been the ultimate disposition of such requests. What you have here is a CIA statement intended to relieve its director of culpability. Later, it will not be said that this had been a false statement. No, the CIA is off the hook. This statement shields the CIA so long as it’s a true statement, to the degree it says anything of use. The value in this statement is what it leaves unsaid, and that is a whopper that lands in the lap of the lying Marxist coward who sporadically occupies the White House between fund-raising jaunts and Letterman appearances.
Ladies and gentlemen, the matter is clear, and the answer is simple: Either Barack Hussein Obama denied the request, or he shelved it until moot. What you have in Obama is a professional liar, and his administration is staffed with people who exist to obfuscate, shade the truth, and outright lie when necessary to fulfill their political agenda. Americans have died because of this rotten, miserable soul, and there’s a reason Tyrone Woods’ father sensed something akin to a dead fish in Obama’s handshake: Like all miserable cowards, he’s dead inside. It is time for Barack Obama to go. He has lost all valid claims to moral authority. Our country can no longer afford him, and if he remains in office, we will never know the whole truth, and no justice will be had for Tyrone Woods, a young man who acted heroically in the face of his own chain of command’s cowardice.
