Declare War NOW!  

No more apologies, no more excuses, no more playing golf.  Hundreds of millions of Muslims are out to destroy the West and western culture.  They are here and they want us DEAD.

Painting Muslims as victims and making excuses for them has now come to a point where it is equivalent to joining them.  Islam has a large radical component that can not and will not coexist with modern society.

Declare war on ISIS and any other radical Islamic organization and country that harbors or supports them!

Whether we choose to accept it or not…

War Is Upon Us

FBI Agents Silenced on Hillary Probe

FBI agents who worked on the Hillary investigation had to sign an unusual non-disclosure form banning them from talking about the case unless they were called to testify.  Unnamed sources told the New York Post they had never heard of the form–known as the Case Briefing Acknowledgement.  One unnamed source told the Post that “FBI agents believe there was an inside deal put in place after the Lynch/Bill Clinton tarmac meeting.”   Newsmax

Muslims Support Black Lives Matter

An alliance has been formed between Black Lives Matter and jihadists.  The executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in a speech in December of last year urged Muslim Americans to join the Black Lives Matter cause.

Editor’s note:  Is CAIR interested in Black Lives Matter or do they feel the black community is ripe for recruitment?  Jihadists will use any method and align with any group to gain ground in their quest for jihad.  Make no mistake, they are out to conquer the world on behalf of Islam.

Massive Migrant Camp Set Up Near George Clooney

A massive makeshift migrant camp has been set up in Lake Como, the popular secluded celebrity hideaway in Italy.  Hundreds of people from Muslim nations are camped in tattered tents around the Lake Como resort, a few steps away from George Clooney’s home.  Clooney, a pro immigration activist, has not commented on whether he will sell the estate or not.  Breitbart

Editor’s note:  Most of the migrants are waiting for smugglers to lead them into Northern Europe.  The migration of hundreds of people from Arab nations, Africa and Asia was triggered following the Swiss government’s decision to close its southern border with Italy.  Every now and then, justice rears its head.

Crime Scene Staging 101 : LYONS: Benghazi was a planned tragedy July 18, 2016

LYONS: Benghazi was a planned tragedy

The event was no surprise, and the massive cover-up appalls

By James A. Lyons – – Monday, March 3, 2014

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The recent reports by the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Armed Services Committee make clear that no organization in the chain of command, including the White House, should have been surprised by the tragic events that occurred at our Benghazi Special Mission Compound (SMC) on Sept. 11, 2012.

Clearly, there was both strategic and tactical warnings.

The security situation in eastern Libya, particularly Benghazi, was out of control. Trying to explain our failure to protect the SMC as a lack of appreciation of the seriousness of the deteriorating security situation or incompetence does not pass muster. This was a planned event and explains the massive cover-up.

There were numerous hostile acts leading up to the attack on the compound. For example, on April 6, 2012, an attack with improvised explosive devices was conducted on the outer wall of the compound.

On May 22, the Benghazi International Red Cross office was hit by two rocket-propelled grenades. On June 1, a car bomb exploded outside the Benghazi hotel where the British ambassador was staying. On June 6, an IED blew a hole in the compound’s perimeter wall. On June 7, Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens requested two mobile security teams for his protection but was denied by the State Department.

On June 11, the British ambassador’s convoy was hit by RPGs. On June 17, the U.K. closes its Benghazi consulate, and the International Red Cross closes its office. On June 19, the Tunisian Consulate is stormed by the rebel group Ansar al Shariah.

Then on July 9, the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli requests continued security support for an additional 60 days, but receives no answer from the State Department.

On Aug. 2, Stevens requests 11 additional personal-security bodyguards. He calls the security situation unpredictable and violent, but his requests are turned down by State. Stevens sent a cable to State on Aug, 16 stating that the compound cannot withstand a coordinated attack.

The State Department’s reaction was to withdraw the three Quick Reaction Units at our embassy in Tripoli under the command of Col. Andy Wood over the objection of the embassy and Col. Wood.

At this point, AFRICOM offers to provide additional security, but Stevens feels compelled to turn down the offer owing to State denying all his requests for increased security.

The State Department turning down all of Stevens‘ requests for increased security as well as drawing down security assets in country is more than puzzling, particularly since an internal State Department analysis completed two months after the compound opened stated that unless security was increased, the compound should be closed. This assessment is buried in the Accountability Review Board (ARB) report.

The question that needs to be answered is, with the out-of-control security situation in eastern Libya, why were there no contingency plans or forces pre-positioned ready to respond to potential attacks on the anniversary of 9/11?

According to one report, the administration was focused on Tunisia, not Libya. Mind-boggling. Nonetheless, if that were the case, where were the forces positioned to respond to an attack on Tunisia?

On the day of the attack, according to a report in The Guardian, the readiness of the ambassador’s five-member security detail raises questions. Three of the four agents with Stevens, according to the report, left their rifles, helmets and body armor in another area under orders by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, which was confirmed by the ARB report.

This makes no sense, given that standard operating procedures in a hostile environment require that weapon be kept at the ready all times. Another question that needs to be answered: Why would the secretary of state give such an order?

Based on numerous reports, the Obama administration and every organization in the chain of command knew almost instantly that this was a terrorist attack on the SMC.

Within hours, it was known that the attack was executed by Ansar al Shariah, which is a coalition of Islamic and Salafist rebel groups linked to al Qaeda, al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and the February 17th Martyrs Brigade.

It should not be overlooked that the February 17th Martyrs Brigade was tasked with supporting the U.K.-based Blue Mountain Security Group that had the contract from our State Department to provide security for the compound.

According to my source, who is a confidential informant for the FBI, the Blue Mountain Security Group is a cover company for MI-6. My source also told me that the February 17 Martyrs Brigade contract personnel were positioned near the compound the day of the attack and were ready to respond but never received orders to execute. Interesting.

My FBI confidential informant has also confirmed my assessment on the Lou Dobbs TV show in October 2012; namely, that this was an operation that went terribly wrong.

According to my source’s in-country contacts, there never was any intention to kill Stevens. He was supposed to be kidnapped and held as a hostage in exchange for the release of the blind sheik, Omar Abdel Rahman. It should be recalled that this was the No. 1 objective of then-Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi in his Washington visit in 2012.

All the unanswered questions and the truth of what actually took place at our Benghazi compound that cost the lives of four Americans can only be resolved by the formation of a special committee with subpoena powers.

House Speaker John A. Boehner, appoint such a committee as called for by Resolution 36 put forth by Rep. Frank R. Wolf, Virginia Republican, and restore integrity to the office of the speaker.

James A. Lyons, U.S. Navy retired Admiral, was commander-in-chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and senior U.S. military representative to the United Nations.

CCB Report here

 

“CCB PRESS CONFERENCE ON BENGHAZI PROVES DERELICTION OF DUTY”

 

The following includes THE KEY FINDINGS of the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB), an independent investigative body formed to find out the truth about the 11-12 September 2012 attacks on the Special Mission Compound (SMC) and the CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya.

The CCB has no ties to any U.S. Government agency, nor any ties to any U.S. Government Committee that have investigated the 11-12 September 2012  attacks on the SMC or the CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya.  This includes having no ties to the House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi.

FROM THE REPORT:

“Betrayal in Benghazi: A Dereliction of Duty”

Key Findings:

  • The Obama administration actively supported the replacement of quasi-secular North African rulers in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt with Muslim Brotherhood rule.
  • In Libya, the Obama administration turned against Muammar Qaddafi, who had become an ally in the fight against the Global Jihad Movement, and instead worked with the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood and materially aided known al-Qa’eda-linked militias to topple his regime.
  • The Obama administration throughout 2012 deliberately withheld urgently-requested security for the U.S. mission in Benghazi, at least in part to buttress the false narrative that al-Qa’eda had been defeated for the benefit of the president’s re-election campaign in 2012—despite the fact that Benghazi was one of the most vulnerable U.S. posts anywhere in the world in the volatile post-Qaddafi environment.
  • For reasons not entirely clear, multiple advance warnings about an impending attack against the U.S. mission in Benghazi were ignored by the Obama administration as a whole, the Department of Defense specifically, and also especially Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who bore ultimate responsibility for diplomatic mission security.  
  • Despite an egregious failure by the Pentagon to pre-position forces in advance, various U.S. assets were available to deploy immediately when the Benghazi attack began the night of 11 September 2012, but were held back from even attempting a rescue effort.  
  • The President, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of Defense Panetta, and Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, must be required to answer for their dereliction of duty (‘willfully refusing to perform ones duties,’ a criminal offense under the United States Code) in failing to provide appropriate protection in advance and to commit forces immediately to a rescue attempt the night of 11-12 September 2012.
  • The Obama White House and Clinton State Department led a concerted two-week coverup regarding the facts of the Benghazi attack for crass political purposes and to collaborate with the international campaign led by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation that seeks criminalization of all criticism of Islam.

 

CCB Press Conference on Benghazi Proves Dereliction of Duty [Video]

 

by Roger Aronoff on July 12, 2016

 

The Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) recently held a press conference and issued a report uncovering new details about the events leading up to and during the September 11, 2012 attacks in Libya that took the lives of four Americans. However, the press has done what it usually does when a story threatens the narrative or reputation of the administration of President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton—they have, for the most part, ignored or misrepresented the CCB’s findings.

The speakers at our June 29 event at the National Press Club in Washington exposed, once again, how the U.S. facilitated the provision of arms to al-Qaeda-linked rebels, and demonstrated that there were many warnings leading up to the attack on the Special Mission Compound, warnings that the administration ignored. In addition, the administration was derelict in its duty to send forces to aid those under attack in Benghazi.

I said that “There’s a media theme, or meme, out there that keeps saying—and you see this [at the] New York Times, CNN, everywhere, saying, ‘No new evidence of any wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton.’ That seems to be the conclusion of most of the media in response to yesterday’s [House Select Committee report]. And we see a field of smoking guns.”

“No matter what comes out…the role of many in the mainstream media is to protect the legacy of President Obama and protect the presidential candidacy and viability of Hillary Clinton,” I argued.

I was joined by a number of other members of the CCB, including former CIA officer Clare Lopez, General Thomas McInerney, Lt. Colonel Denny Haney, Admiral James “Ace” Lyons (all retired), our attorney John Clarke, as well as guests Rear Admiral Chuck Kubic (ret.) and Charles Woods, father of Ty Woods, the former Navy SEAL who was killed in the attack on the CIA Annex.

Here are some of our findings, in the words of each of the CCB members and the guests. In my earlier column on the press conference, we included a video of the entire event, including Q&A and crosstalk among the panelists. Here we present a video of each individual speaker. If you want to see the Q&A as well, please go to the previous column:

 

Roger Aronoff:

 

 

Clare Lopez:

“So, when we undertook to begin this second report, we think that we bring to this topic a willingness to name names, a willingness to assign responsibility and to demand accountability that too many of the others, committees and others, have not done—have neglected to do.”

“Now, from Christopher Stevens to the folks at the CIA Annex, they were in fact then relying on exactly the jihadist enemy that was eventually to turn on them and to kill four Americans and injure others so gravely.”

“Absolutely, they [Hillary and Obama] lied. There’s no question. We know, again, from Judicial Watch documents obtained through the FOIA process that the administration, including the President and Secretary of State Clinton, were actively involved that very night while the attack was still going on in concocting a false narrative to deflect the story from the truth and to defend at all costs, even the cost of American lives, the re-election campaign of the President. They were not even decided on which video they were going to blame. They only knew that they were going to blame a video.”

 

 

General Thomas McInerney (ret.):

“We should have prepositioned F-16s from Aviano down to Sigonella to be on 15-minute alert.”

“It was 9/11. Isn’t 9/11 a significant date for us? And yet we had none of this preparation. We had all of the Combatant Commanders back in Washington, DC, on a commanders’ conference.”

“So, there was no pre-planning. I call that dereliction of duty.”

 

 

Lt. Colonel Dennis Haney (ret.):

“I talked to Sean Smith’s uncle this morning, and he said he’s read our report. He got halfway through [Trey] Gowdy’s report, he got all the way through our report. He says read this [CCB] report if you want to know the truth.”

“Qaddafi was out there killing bad guys. He was killing al Qaeda, and al Qaeda we supported—they went to Syria, they became ISIS. We developed ISIS. That’s a fact.”

 

 

Admiral James “Ace” Lyons (ret.):

“And when I watched the [Select Committee on Benghazi’s] press conference yesterday, to say I was disappointed would be an understatement, because Chairman Gowdy is not a stenographer and he’s not a tape recorder. He was there to make findings and conclusions. He had the information; he copped out.”

“There’s no reason why F-16 aircraft weren’t moved from Aviano to Sigonella, or to Souda Bay, Crete—either place. We had a 130-man Marine force recon team at Sigonella. We had the Marine FAST teams at Rota. We had the Commanders’ in Extremis Force in Croatia. We had assets.”

“We know Jeremy Bash, the chief of staff at the Department of Defense, at 1910 that evening sent an email, or called the State Department, and said ‘we’re spinning up as we [speak].’ Where do we get the cross border authority?”

 

 

John Clarke:

“Now we just heard, I just found out, because I haven’t read Mr. Gowdy’s report, that the order [to deploy] was given at 7:00 pm. Well, the attack began at 3:42 pm. local time. That’s three hours later.”

 

 

Rear Admiral Chuck Kubic (ret.):

“And I found out eventually that it was Secretary Clinton working directly with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who had shut down not that truce talk [with Qaddafi] but had struck down a parallel one I didn’t even know was happening through a different business channel.”

“So it struck me that the same behavior that shut down the 72-hour truce at the onset of the war, leading to death, destruction a failed state, was the same kind of behavior that existed in that 7:30 [Deputies] meeting.”

 

 

Charles Woods:

“Many, many times Ty as a Navy SEAL in his 20 years of service was in worse situations than this. But he always knew that if there was a compromise of the mission, that he was going to be extracted. That did not happen in this case. That’s part of the DNA of being in the military. That’s part of the code of ethics, is you are always rescued.”

“We have a lot of experts in the military that say they could have been rescued. No attempt was made.”

 

 

You can read the CCB’s new report here. It is well documented, it puts Benghazi in context, it explains why we were in Libya, what we did and didn’t do, and it names the people most responsible for the failures of Benghazi.

Speaking Out  

Reactions from prominent people and yours truly regarding the FBI decision to not recommend prosecution of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Major General Paul Vallely (ret)

“A travesty of justice (or injustice).  The Democratic-unamerican-Democrat  establishment continues to protect its own with Hillary, her staff and enablers being the latest to commit crimes with no punishment…America must wake up and stand up to a government gone astray.  This will help presidential candidate Donald Trump to become our next president…which will be the salvation of our nation.”

Chuck Nash, Citizen

“Some will rightly say that the application of ‘equal justice under the law’ in America has never been perfect.  But, it has always been the lofty goal toward which we strive and is keeping with a core tenant of our founding that ‘all men are created equal.’  It pains me beyond words, but perhaps it’s time for ‘We The People’ to acknowledge that the concept mentioned in the Pledge of Allegiance of ‘Justice for All’ is dead in America.

In that regard, consider contacting your Congressman or Senator to demand that the words ‘and justice for all’ be removed from the Pledge because it appears ‘justice for all’ is, as of July 5, 2016, a goal we have stopped trying to reach.

If there were to be such a mass outpouring, it would cause immediate wide-spread coverage and hold up to the American people and the politicians that, after 240 years of existence…it is WE who are presiding over the destruction of this experiment in freedom.  So, WE are responsible.  It transpired on our watch and therefore WE must accept total responsibility and accountability.  Therefore, if we are not willing to take immediate steps to rectify the injustice, we must take steps to remove the words that would cause people to pledge to an untruthful statement.

This is not meant as as a surrender or temper tantrum.  Rather, perhaps coming face to face with a stark revelation might shock enough people out of their comfortable stupor and provide one last ditch opportunity to galvanize ‘We the People’ to once again join together to save this country.  Pray that it is not too late.”

Admiral James (Ace) Lyons (ret)

“The FBI’s decision to not recommend prosecution says it all!  We are no longer a country of laws, certainly none that apply to the political elite!  They only apply to every day Americans!  Further, we should stop the charade of making political appointees take the ‘oath of office’ since it is dismissed quickly when it is not convenient.  Regretfully, this applies to military leadership as well.”

Lieutenant General William G. “Jerry” Boykin (ret)

“There are clearly two standards of conduct when it comes to handling classified information…Clinton standards and everyone-else standards.  A former CIA director under Bill Clinton, John Deutch, was guilty of mishandling classified info but Janet Reno refused to prosecute him and Slick Willy pardoned him on his last day of office.  The rules just don’t apply to the Clintons or their cronies.”

Ray DiLorenzo, Editor, Stand Up America

“What was suspected for years is now official.  We do have an elite in America… people who are above the law… people who use the guise of ‘public service’ to enrich themselves while forcefully applying their own set of rotten values to our great institutions.  And they come from both sides of the political spectrum.

They do not compromise…they only step back in order to take two steps forward.  If they cannot enter from the front door, they go through the back door and if not the back door, they crawl through a window.  They lie and change political positions as easily as breathing.  They are corrupt!

Now we have our very own Eva Perón, la dama de la esperanza, the ‘lady of hope,’ who wants to be our president.  Like Perón, always deeply concerned about the poor and disenfranchised, but living in total luxury, all from ‘public service.’  Truly, we are well on our way to being a banana republic.

P.T. Barnum was right…a sucker IS born every minute!”

 

A new Clinton campaign poster unveiled at an event in San Antonio says "I'm with you" in Spanish.

Chaos In America

Are We Nuts?

Re-printed from Canada Free Press

Ray DiLorenzo

We the people.  Who are we?  What kind of nation have we become?  If I may borrow from Michael Moore, it would be the title of his book, ‘Dude, Where’s my country’?

Almost the entire Democrat Party has gone socialist.  For those older folks who are accustomed to more traditional terms, that means Communist.  The moderates are long gone.  The entire Democrat debate is now about pandering to whomever.  The loudest applauses come form the most generous promises. The nation has become conditioned to accepting handouts from politicians who are only seeking one thing…power.

For half of the people of this nation, their only interest in government is what they think they are entitled to from the treasury.  Honesty and integrity are hardly considerations.  Look at the crowds Bernie Sanders attracted; they were in the thousands.

We have a president that sold us on his Christianity and then celebrates Ramadan, protects Muslims and ignores Christians and Jews who are being murdered around the world.  He never goes to church, insists that statues of Jesus and other Christian symbols be covered with black sheets when he makes a speech in a Christian setting.  And yet, most people wouldn’t dream of questioning his religious sincerity.

Since Obama took office, the national debt has doubled with a U.S. debt to GDP ratio at an astounding 101%, with nothing to show for it.  Some 76% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.  Racism hasn’t been this bad since the turmoil of the sixties and seventies.  The black neighborhoods of this country are feeding on themselves and yet our president continues to divide the country while blaming the police and inanimate objects.  Over 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program, according to the U.S. Census.  The Middle East is in shambles and ready to explode.  Health insurance costs have risen 30% while Americans still think that having health insurance means getting health care.  Our military is a fraction of what it used to be and yet we live in the most dangerous times since World War II.  Russia, China and radical Islam have seen fit to roam the planet seeking whom they may devour, with little resistance.

Comes the Republican Party, a traditionally conservative, time-honored anti-slavery political party that has lost its way.  Donald Trump comes along, turns on the lights and we all watch while the rats, with their mouths full, run and hide.

We no longer demand honesty and integrity from our leaders or, in many cases, even ourselves.  We listen to what the politicians say, but don’t watch what they do.  They blame racism for every social problem and look upon every crisis as an opportunity, all the while proposing solutions to problems they created.   In the mean time, our main-stream-media has joined this corrupt political establishment.   In short, our standards for leadership have sunken to rock-bottom.

Nineteenth century political thinker and historian, Alexis de Tocqueville said it well, “The people get the government they deserve.”  A lawless people begets a lawless government. With half of the electorate now certifiable, this next election will forever tell the tale.  There will be no turning back.

Many people question if our politicians are honest or just plain nuts.  I ask, are we nuts?

FBI Director Comey Has History of Helping Clintons

James Comey, in 2004, while serving as deputy attorney general in the Justice Department, apparently limited the scope of the criminal investigation of Clinton official Sandy Berger, accused of removing and destroying classified records from the National Archives.  The documents were relevant to accusations that the Clinton administration was negligent in the buildup to the 9/11 terrorist attack. In the investigation of the burglary, there is no evidence that Comey made any attempt to find out what former Clinton administration officials may have coordinated with Berger in the theft of the documents.  WND

Editor’s note:  Curiously, Comey, Loretta Lynch, Sandy Berger and Hillary aid, Cheryl Mills all worked as partners in the Washington Law Firm of Hogan and Hartson, which prepared tax returns for the Clintons.

A former Navy SEAL’s take on Benghazi July 13, 2013

“Apparently, a career politician who once touted her national security credentials as making her better prepared to handle the 3 a.m. phone call than anyone as a future commander in chief decided that doing nothing when American lives and our mission in Libya were at stake was her best option.”

A former Navy SEALs take on Benghazi

By Dan O’Shea

Friday, July 1, 2016 1:16pm

 

It is ironic that the House Select Committee on Benghazi released its report on the anniversary of Operation Red Wings, the 2005 rescue mission that was the largest one of the Afghanistan conflict. A four-man SEAL reconnaissance team was compromised and ambushed by an overwhelming enemy force. When the “troops-in-contact” call came into headquarters, the mission shifted immediately to a personnel recovery one.

Fellow SEALs boarded Army helicopters and departed on a daylight Quick Reaction Force rescue operation despite the obvious danger and numerous unknowns on the ground. Americans were desperately fighting for their lives, and “leave no man behind” is an operating principle that needs no explanation to anyone in the military.

One rescue helicopter was shot down by a rocket-propelled grenade, killing everyone on board including eight Navy SEALs and eight Army air crew. That we lost 16 men trying to save four others was tragic, but it was accepted as how we in the special operations community do business. A reaction force always on standby to launch at a moment’s notice is standard operating procedure.

Compare that response to the State Department’s on Sept. 11, 2012, in Libya from the Benghazi report timeline and actions taken by the department’s leadership.

As initial reports came in on the consulate attack, the priority was obviously not on “leaving no man behind.”

  • 3:42 p.m. in Washington/9:42 p.m. Benghazi. The consulate attack commenced. The State Department informs the White House at 4:05 p.m.
  • 5 p.m./11 p.m. President Barack Obama orders Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta to “Do everything possible to save Americans.” Panetta ordered military assets to Benghazi, but only unarmed drones deployed immediately to Libya, showing a live feed of the aftermath of the consulate attack and the defense of the annex in real time.
  • 7:30 p.m./1:30 a.m. The White House convened a “deputies” meeting with State, the Pentagon and the intelligence community on the U.S. response to the attacks. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the ranking official present. With the status of the Ambassador Chris Stevens and Foreign Service officer Sean Smith still unknown, the two-hour meeting focused on how not to offend Libyans if American forces deployed, what our military assets should be wearing, and an anti-Muslim YouTube video. None of the resulting action items discussed deploying rescue forces.

There was no directive from the secretary of state to deploy the Foreign Emergency Support Team — the only interagency, on-call, short-notice team poised to respond to terrorist incidents worldwide. The team, designed specifically to respond to embassy or consulate attacks, assesses the crisis and coordinates the government response. Only the president and the secretary of state can order a deployment, but the deputies never considered that option before the truth on the ground had been established in Benghazi.

  • 10 p.m./4 a.m. Former Navy SEAL Ty Woods and his team had evacuated the consulate survivors; fellow SEAL Glen Doherty’s Quick Reaction Force had arrived to help defend the CIA annex. Sean Smith was confirmed dead; Ambassador Stevens was still unaccounted for and missing.
  • 10:08 p.m./5:08 a.m. Clinton puts out the first official U.S. government response to the Benghazi attack. “I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. … Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet.”
  • 11:15 p.m./6:15 a.m. In Benghazi, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty were killed defending the embattled American outpost waiting for the U.S. cavalry that was never coming.

On the 11th anniversary of 9/11 and throughout the crisis, no military forces were deployed to Benghazi. American F-16s stationed at Aviano Air Base in Italy, less than two hours away, were never put on alert. The Marine Corps’ Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team Company in Spain did not deploy that night but did change out of their uniforms into civilian clothes and back again four times on the tarmac waiting for a military transport plane to arrive from Germany. Africa Command’s U.S. Army Special Forces repositioned to a Navy base in Italy, only to wait for orders. And the Foreign Emergency Support Team, specifically created for this kind of terrorist incident, was never authorized to deploy.

Apparently, a career politician who once touted her national security credentials as making her better prepared to handle the 3 a.m. phone call than anyone as a future commander in chief decided that doing nothing when American lives and our mission in Libya were at stake was her best option.
