Let’s start to discuss the Benghazi Libya situation in a logical manner, first in the tactical and then in the strategic. I’m not talking “Shoulda-Coulda-Woulda”; I’m not talking intelligence operatives in Libya and infiltration of terror groups. I am not even talking about the influence Mr. Obama’s actions have had on the world’s view of our Country in the last 4 years.
No matter where you are in the world, the military and the police are always behind the power curve when it comes to the trigger, plunger or clapper being initiated by a terrorist organization.
The terrorists will always have the edge in timing and depending on how dedicated they are to killing the mass majority of people at that location; it’s going to happen. So in my opinion, in the immediate tactical sense, there could not have been anything done to stop the assault on our consulate. Mr. Obama is not at fault for the attack itself!
The start of the attack happens, the alert system for the Department of State is initiated, members of our government in the highest positions had direct access to the information, the drone videos, everything! This is the point where Mr. Obama is fully knowledgeable and responsible in both the tactical and strategic level. There are questions that have to be asked and answered. A decision has to be made by Mr. Obama and made fast: Respond to the Consulate with over-powering force or let them go and deal with the result, we know the answer, no response and no answers by the Obama Administration!
Let’s be clear, if it’s up to the operator, the guys on the ground, they are always a go! Even in this situation, they are always a go! We can’t allow our Embassy to suffer this in Libya, no way! They were not the ones that made the decision.
The Strategic decision was: A political answer, the Obama Administration did not want to face another “Desert 1 (Iran), situation this close to the election. Simple as that!
The FBI did not get to the Embassy for 17 days! “Visa’s” claims the Obama Administrations! Then they stay there for a mere 3-4 hour period! Now there are many documents blowing in the Consulate after they departed. Why is the FBI investigating this instead of the perpetrators of this diplomatic insult, having to worry about the sky and a precision device splitting their skulls?
US Forces still are not in control of our Consulate as you read this!
From the time the attack happened to this very day is totally under the responsibility of Mr. Obama. Bush had nothing to do with this. The BS story of the demonstration, reacting to a YouTube video released, several months prior to the attack, has been proven to be a boldfaced lie.
The press conferences and media show’s that everyone in the Obama administration was playing along with the “demonstration narrative” and that was clearly a political decision. The refusals to answer questions with definitive information from the various parts of government is alarming and clearly timed to “run out the clock prior” to Election Day, Tuesday, November 6th, around 11 PM Eastern time.
Since these many questions are not being answered by the Military, the CIA, the State department and the White House, everyone is deciding to bet their last Dollar on this administration. They are doing this instead of executing their constitutionally directed duties and insuring the People of the US are informed prior to making the biggest decision that can be made, electing the President of the United States of America! That just in and of itself should be the most important and “hair raising” parts to this election.
We, the People, all of US, regardless of party, religion and race, should look at this and re think whom they are voting for. We are at the very least a people who have values and we have a history of openness to information that no other country in this world has. When information of such an immediate and clearly important nature such as the attack on our Consulate, our national territory, in Benghazi, Libya, and we don’t have the answers, something is seriously wrong!
This information not being made open to US prior to the Election is a disgrace and since it’s a political related hindrance to information, it’s a disgrace that has far-reaching consequences. So much for a Transparent Obama Administration!
We have never had such a situation in the past, with such political overtones throughout the incident and aftermath since Watergate and the press was all over that, where is the liberal press now? Where is the Much Vaunted Fourth Estate? They are responsible in our society to get to the facts, not the truth, the facts of the matter! Where are they, where is the White House and where is Mr. Obama? Cooling his heels and staying far away from any question about Libya!
Vote for true transparency, our Constitution, our Freedom! Vote Romney!
