Devastating new reports from sources on the ground in Benghazi has confirmed that the Obama administration not only knew that a terrorist attack was underway at the Consulate, but that they explicitly and repeatedly told security forces at the nearby CIA, and other military support, to stand down when Ambassador Chris Stevens’ team begged for help… Now, we are learning that a “rogue” general, Africom commanding officer U.S. General Carter Ham, was arrested by his second in command (and consequently relieved of duty) for activating special forces teams within minutes of learning the Consulate was under attack. Emphasis ours.
An Excellent Spirit has brought our readers a lot of information. Conservative Contacts has more. We bring it to you although some may be repetitive. “The Washington Times reported that on October 26, “Ambassador” posted the following RUMINT on TigerDroppings (h/t Jim Hoft): …
”(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place,” Panetta told Pentagon reporters. ” And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.
The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.
General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.” Was General Ham arrested on the spot, as some have reported? An Excellent Spirit does not know, but we have reported that Gen. Ham has retired. He will most certainly be called to testify whenever “they” get around to telling “us” what happened in those critical hours. It is becoming increasingly clear, however, that had “the Obama administration been at all concerned for saving the lives of these four Americans, including our ambassador, they could have stopped the mortar fire that eventually killed them simply by allowing an AC-130U Gunship — a powerful, nearby weapon that could have halted the destruction — to fire… Obama and Sec. of Defense Panetta could have given Gen. Ham the green-light to save those four killed. But they didn’t.”
Gen. Carter Ham
The Obama administration chose instead to tell Americans who could have acted to save those under attack to stand down and let the terrorists win.“Somebody the other day said to me, ‘This is as bad as Watergate.’ Well, nobody died in Watergate,” said Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Sunday during an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “This is either a massive cover-up or incompetence that is not acceptable … to the American people,” said McCain. “The fact that thirty Americans were attacked for seven hours (and four of them DIED) with no help from a well-informed Oval Office is NOT ACCEPTABLE. The failure to take responsibility is NOT ACCEPTABLE.” No one wants to even that Washington in fact and in deed pronounced a death sentence by ordering Americans to “stand down” against terrorists! Washington elites are engaging in a massive cover up. “We” are being told about “investigations and that we must wait until after the election for a Congressional investigation. “We must tell Washington that nothing the Obama Administration or those in Washington say or do will stop “us” from getting the whole truth and guaranteeing that the four dead Americans get the justice that they and “we” deserve. We must deliver a strong, unequivocal message to Washington: “Never again will the highest levels of our government watch Americans die in real time while concocting a cover story to feed to the American people.”
President Obama with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta
Update: House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard “Buck” McKeon (R-Calif.) has sent a letter to Obama demanding to know exactly whom he ordered to do what on Sept. 11, 2012, when the attack happened after Obama’s most recent statement in an Oct. 26 interview that he took action and issued “directives” the “minute” he found out about the attack. “There appears to be a discrepancy between your directive and the actions taken by the Department of Defense,” Rep. McKeon wrote in his letter to Obama. “As we are painfully aware, despite the fact that the military had resources in the area, the military did not deploy any assets to secure U.S. personnel in Benghazi during the hours the consulate and the annex were under attack. I find it implausible that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Commander of U.S. Africa Command [this would be GENERAL CARTER HAM], and the Commander of U.S. European Command would have ignored a direct order from the Commander in Chief.”
House Armed Services Committee Chairman Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif
“McKeon listed four questions that he is demanding Obama answer:
1) “To whom did you issue this first directive and how was this directive communicated to the military and other agencies–verbally or in writing?
2) “At any time on September 11, 2012, did you specifically direct the military to move available assets into Libya to ensure the safety of U.S. personnel in Benghazi? If so, which assets did you order to Libya?”
3) “At any time on September 11, 2012, other than ISR assets, did you provide the authority for the military to take any and all necessary measures to secure U.S. personnel, including specifically the authority to enter Libyan airspace?”
4) “Did you have any communication with the Secretary of Defense, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, or any Commanders of regional Combatant Commands regarding military support to U.S. personnel in Benghazi on September 11th? If so could you please describe any recommendations provided to you regarding available military support and any orders you gave them?”
But McKeon is only going to get the answers from this administration if he has the rest of Congress behind him. Evidence is mounting against the Obama Administration but much of the lamestream media is still callously covering up for Barack Obama, with their vast coverage of Hurricane Sandy and hoping the American people forget all about the four Americans this administration knowingly sacrificed to the terrorists abroad. Barack Obama still thinks he can spin his way out of this. He has no intention of being held accountable, not if he can help it. We must An Excellent Spirit LOUDLY demands that the lamestream media — NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, CSPAN and The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today and the rest of them—begin covering this story and do it without spinning truth, incompetence, cover up and murder into some kind of unavoidable mishap.”
Important New Update: Update Obama Fires Second Top Commander Over No Libyan Rescue
Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette
An Excellent Spirit has just seen reports that President Obama ordered the immediate removal of Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette from his command of the powerful Carrier Strike Group Three (CSG-3) currently located in the Middle East. CSG-3 is one of five US Navy carrier strike groups currently assigned to the US Pacific Fleet. US Navy carrier strike groups are employed in a variety of roles, which involve gaining and maintaining sea control and projecting power ashore, as well as projecting naval airpower ashore. The aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) is the strike group’s current flagship, and as of 2012, other units assigned to Carrier Strike Group Three include Carrier Air Wing Nine; the guided-missile cruisers USS Mobile Bay (CG-53) and USS Antietam (CG-54); and the ships of Destroyer Squadron 21, the guided-missile destroyers USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG-108), USS Dewey (DDG-105), USS Kidd (DDG-100), and USS Milius (DDG-69).
There are several news reports on Obama’s unprecedented firing of a powerful US Navy Commander during wartime state that Admiral Gaouette’s removal was for “allegations of inappropriate leadership judgment” that arose during the strike group’s deployment to the Middle East. This GRU report, however, states that Admiral Gaouette’s firing by President Obama was due to this strike force commander disobeying orders when he ordered his forces on 11 September to “assist and provide intelligence for” American military forces ordered into action by US Army General Carter Ham, who was then the commander of the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM), against terrorist forces attacking the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. General Ham (pictured above) had been in command of the initial 2011 US-NATO military intervention in Libya who, like Admiral Gaouette, was fired by Obama. And as we can, in part, read from US military insider accounts of this growing internal conflict between the White House and US Military leaders: “The information I heard today was that General [Carter] Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready. General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.”
Politico gives these amazing details that An Excellent Spirit is saddened to bring our readers: “A shocking new report prepared by the Foreign Military Intelligence Main Directorate (GRU) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, and circulating in the Kremlin today, states that President Obama has fired one of the United States Navy’s most powerful Admirals over growing fears the US Military is planning an overthrow of his government. According to this report, yesterday (27 October) Obama ordered the immediate removal of Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette from his command of the powerful Carrier Strike Group Three (CSG-3) currently located in the Middle East.”
An Excellent Spirit urges all Americans to pray for the United States of America! Reports such as these and the many confirmations we saw online can only mean that America is under a huge spiritual attack! Only by praying to The Most High God for His grace, mercy and protection can “we” prosper and survive. Pray! Pray! Then, pray some more!
As all Americans know, there is an Election coming in a few days. Keep all of this in prayer and ask God whether this is what He wants for America? That is the question each American should be asking of themselves, because, like it or not, “we” will have to live with our answers after November 6th and so will our children and grandchildren. The millions of Americans who have served this nation so well by serving in the military must be in shock and revolted by what is going on today. We must get the truth out of the Obama Administration and we should get it before “we” vote!
America is “One Nation Under God”! In order for America to remain free and a nation submitted to God, “we” must have, know and pray about the whole truth about Benghazi, the Obama Administration and our brave men and women in uniform. No matter what, VOTE on November 6th as if your life depends on your vote! It does!!
