In what is quickly shaping up to be the biggest and most serious Obama White House scandal since the fraudulent birth certificate fiasco, the recent attack on the American diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, which resulted in four Americans being killed, has caused widespread public outrage at the Obama administration for its apparent willful refusal to protect American life. According to emerging reports, the Obama administration was fully aware of the attack as it was occurring, but deliberately ordered a “stand down” rather than send help.
The mainstream media is all over the map in its coverage of this shocking incident, which many are now referring to as “Benghazigate,” but the truth of the matter is that there is no way the White House did not know what was occurring at the outpost, regardless of claims to the contrary. Repeated petitions for help from those on the ground in Benghazi went unanswered, which the White House has since tried to cover up with all sorts of excuses. Leaked information reveals not only that the White House knew full well about the attack as it was happening, but deliberately did nothing about it, which some have already dubbed a blatant act of treason by the occupying administration.
Then, there is the inconvenient fact that the Obama administration had already been caught involved in a major CIA gun-running operation that included shipping 400 tons of weapons and military gear into and through Libya, which some are now calling “Fast and Furious II.” There is also speculation among some that Ambassador Stevens, who was killed in the recent attack, had actually been directly involved in this gun running scheme prior to his death, which raises even more questions about what actually took place during the melee.
Was General Ham fired from his position at AFRICOM for trying to help protect American life?
It has also been revealed that General Carter F. Ham, who had been a top commander for U.S. AFRICOM, was immediately removed from his post after attempting to defy orders from the White House ordering him to stand down and do nothing in response to the attack. This was confirmed on October 18 when Barack Obama made an announcement nominating Gen. David M. Rodriguez to replace the now-fired Gen. Ham, who many familiar with the largely unreported details of the chilling saga are hailing as a hero.
There are so many details and criss-crossing paths of information, in fact, that it is difficult to know exactly what took place on that fateful day, and what the motivations were behind the decision to order a stand down. Many important questions remain unanswered, and the mainstream media seems mostly disinterested in getting to the bottom of the issue, instead choosing to accept the official and ever-evolving story about this dastardly scourge in American history.
“The breach on America’s diplomatic outpost in Benghazi that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens, two Navy SEALs and an additional civil servant dead, is a foreign policy debacle so colossal, so convoluted, that piecing together its moving parts may be nearly an impossible feat,” wrote Tiffany Gabbay from The Blaze recently about the fiasco.
