La verdad sobre el ataque al Consulado de Estados Unidos en Benghazi, Libia. El encubrimiento

 Nota del bloguista

Según expresó el ex Coronel John Lopez de la Cruz en un programa televisivo conducido por el muy conocido periodista Carlos Pérez transmitido por la televisora Telemiami el domingo 18 de noviembre de 2012, un general, cuyo nombre y cargo dió en detalles el ex Coronel López,  de una base norteamericana en Alemania  fue detenido porque al conocer lo que estaba sucediendo en el Consulado de Benghazi el 11 de septiembre,  dió órdenes con  el proposito de ir a ayudar al personal norteamericano atacado en Benghazi pese a las órdenes de ¨stand down¨ que le habían dado; otro alto oficial, cuyo nombre y grado militar dió también  el ex Coronel López,  due también detenido por solidarizarse con el otro general detenido.

Esa misma orden de ¨Stand down¨ le fue dada  a un dispositivo militar norteamericano que estaba a menos de milla y media de distancia del Consulado de Benghazi. Desobedeciendo esa  orden, el Navy Seal Tyrone S. Woods y otros, fueron al Consulado y lograron evacuar a aproximadamente 30 personas. Tyrone S. Woods murió a las 7 horas de comenzado el ataque al Consulado.

The attack

The Benghazi attack consisted of military assaults on two separate U.S. diplomatic compounds. The first assault occurred at the main compound, approximately 300 yards long and 100 yards wide, at about 9:40 pm local time (3:40 pm EDT, Washington DC). The second assault took place at a CIA annex 1.2 miles away at about 4 am the following morning.[26]
Assault on the Consulate

Between 125 and 150 gunmen, "some wearing the Afghan-style tunics favored by Islamic militants," are reported to have participated in the assault.[27][28][29] Some had their faces covered and wore flak jackets.[30] Weapons they used during the attack included rocket-propelled grenades, hand grenades, AK-47 and FN F2000 NATO assault rifles, diesel canisters, mortars, and heavy machine guns and artillery mounted on gun trucks.[31][32]

Assault on the CIA annex

After the consulate attack and before the annex attack, Libyan government forces met up with a group of Americans (believed to be eight reinforcements from Tripoli including Glen Doherty[50]) that had arrived at the Benghazi airport and went with them to the CIA annex at about 4am to assist in transporting approximately 32 Americans at the annex back to the airport for evacuation. As they were at the annex arranging for the transportation back to the airport a single shot rang out, quickly followed by RPGs and then a mortar that hit the annex roof killing Doherty and Tyrone Woods while operating their machine gun[51] while 31-year-old David Ubben suffered shrapnel injuries and several broken bones. According to Ubben's father, "The first [mortar] dropped 50 yards short and the next two were right on target.".[52

Petraeus dijo que esa referencia fue retirada de la versión final, aunque no estaba seguro cuál de las agencias federales decidió eliminarla.

Benghazi Attack Not About Film Attacking Mohammed

By Victor Thorn
November 04, 2012   AFP
Timeline of Deception

On the 11th anniversary of 9-11, when four Americans were slain in Benghazi, a Predator   drone equipped with cameras hovered over a safe house that was under attack and beamed images—via satellite in real-time—to the United States State Department, the Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Also, during an October 11 radio interview  with Howie Carr of Boston’s WRKO, Colonel David Hunt stated that over 100 people watched this feed in the White House Situation Room.

All of these entities witnessed firsthand that the onslaught did not result from protests over an anti-Mohammed video. The “fog of war” didn’t blur what they saw, as Hillary Clinton asserted, nor were the details sketchy, as administration officials claimed. Moreover, the State Department’s Charlene Lamb admitted during Congressional hearings that they watched the attacks in real-time.

To reinforce that this assault did not arise from a “spontaneous uprising,” at 4:05 pm EST on September 11, Clinton’s State Department Operations Center issued an urgent e-mail alert . “Approximately 20 armed people fired shots. Explosions have been heard as well.” At no time did they mention protests or a video. Two hours later, at 6:07 pm EST, the State Department transmitted another e-mail. “Ansar al-Sharia claims responsibility for Benghazi attack.”

The blame placed on Ansar al-Sharia—a group the U.S. government says is affiliated with al-Qaeda—did not emanate from the Mossad, Dick Cheney or The Weekly Standard. Rather, it came directly from the Obama administration’s State Department. In this light, every party involved knew with certainty from day one that the attacks did not arise from some type of protest.

Yet, for the next two weeks, Barack Obama and his cronies outwardly lied about the circumstances surrounding this attack against American personnel. Beginning with a September 12 Rose Garden statement, Obama generically referred to “acts of terror,” but never called the murders themselves terrorism. However, on September 12, Libya’s deputy ambassador to London stated that Ansar al-Sharia was behind the attacks, while on September 13, Libya’s ambassador to the U.S. specifically referred to the ambush as terrorism.

Below is a damning timeline of deception emanating from the Obama administration:

September 14: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. “We don’t have and did not have concrete evidence to suggest that this was not in reaction to the film.”

September 16: U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice appeared on five Sunday talk shows to say, “In fact, it was a spontaneous—not a premeditated—response to what transpired in Cairo.” [i.e reaction to the video]

Sept. 18: Jay Carney reiterated, “Our initial information, and that includes all information, we saw no evidence to backup claims by others that this was a preplanned or premeditated attack. We saw evidence that it was sparked by a reaction to this video.”

September 18: Obama to David Letterman  . “Terrorists used this [the film protests] as an excuse to attack.”

September 19: Jay Carney, as questions surfaced about the attackers carrying shoulder-launched rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs). “We have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack.”

September 20: Obama during an interview  with Spanish-language television network Univision that took place in Miami. “What we do know is that the natural protests arose because outrage over the video was used as an excuse by extremists.”

September 24: When asked while appearing on The View if the Benghazi attacks were terrorism, Obama referred to them as a “mob action.”

September 25: During his United Nations speech, Obama was still beating a dead horse, citing the anti-Mohammed video six separate times.

The Attack: What Really Happened?

In a September 24 analysis of the Benghazi attacks, former CIA clandestine operations officer Claire Lopez wrote , “They let our ambassador and others die, in real time, watching it happen, and they didn’t do anything about it.” Elaborating further, Lopez stated that after Navy SEALs were told to stand down three separate times, such an order not to assist fellow Americans had to reach, at a minimum, Hillary Clinton at the State Department, or higher.

At a time when every American embassy should have been on high alert—especially since former U.S. Ambassador to Libya John Christopher Stevens   had repeatedly requested additional security for months—how could a CIA safe house be attacked for hours on end without a response from the most powerful military on Earth? Incredibly, two of the four murdered Americans were killed seven hours after the attacks began. It should be noted that Israel’s assault on the USS Liberty  lasted for two hours. Such amateurish incompetence on the part of this administration is difficult to fathom.

As evidence undeniably shows, the attacks were premeditated and well planned. Spontaneous mobs supposedly angered by a YouTube video don’t carry RPGs, mortars, machine guns and AK-47 rifles. After attackers doused the mission with diesel fuel and set it on fire, Stevens ultimately died of smoke inhalation in a safe-room. His bodyguard Sean Smith burst through a window, only to be killed moments later by a volley of grenades.

These men undoubtedly knew their lives were in danger, as Stevens’ frantically issued e-mails to the Pentagon warning of increased violence. Months earlier he pleaded with the State Department about being on a hit list. “What we have seen are not random crimes of opportunity, but rather targeted discriminate attacks.” Indeed, their Benghazi compound had been bombed twice prior to September 11. Likewise, shortly before his death, former Information Management Officer with the U.S. Foreign Service Sean Smith posted a message on a gaming site, “I hope we get out alive.”

Tragically, as the White House, CIA and Pentagon watched the attacks as they unfolded, Barack Obama met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta at 5:00 pm EST. No rescue troops were sent to directly assist these Americans, and later—as the carnage continued—Obama went to bed. The next day he callously flew to Las Vegas to attend a fundraiser.


Barack Obama: The Coward

On October 11, Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith who was slain in Benghazi on September 11, told   CNN’s Anderson Cooper about the reaction she received at his September 19 funeral. “I look at TV and see bloody handprints on walls thinking, my God, is that my son’s? They [the Obama administration] haven’t told me anything. They’re still studying it, and the things they are telling me are outright lies. Susan Rice talked to me personally and said, ‘This is the way it is, it was because of this film that came out.’”

On top of Rice’s unmitigated duplicity, Mrs. Smith described our commander-in-chief as unsympathetic beyond words. “I cried on Obama’s shoulder, and then he looked off into the distance, so that was worthless to me.”

Racked with grief, she relayed more of her encounter. “I said [to Obama]: You screwed up. You didn’t do a good job. I lost my son, and he said: We’ll get back to you; trust me. Well, I don’t trust you anymore.”

On October 24, Charles Woods, father of slaughtered Navy SEAL Tyrone S. Woods , spoke  with conservative radio talk show host Lars Larson about his encounter with Obama at the funeral. “When he came over to our little area, he kind of mumbled, ‘I’m sorry.’ His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he couldn’t look me in the eye. It wasn’t a sincere, ‘I’m really sorry that your son died,’ but it was more of an insincere, whining ‘I’m sorry,’ and it was like shaking hands with a dead fish. It just didn’t feel right. Now it’s coming out that, apparently, the White House Situation Room was watching our people die in real time.”

Likewise, he explained the Secretary of State’s cold-heartedness. “[Hillary] came over separately and talked. I gave her a hug, and she did not appear to be one bit sincere at all.”

Lastly, during an October 26 televised interview , Woods said of the president. “Was [Obama] one of those cowards in the White House watching my son being murdered on TV and refusing to do anything? That’s a question he probably won’t have the courage to answer publicly.”
