Catherine Herridge explains more about classified cable, says State Dept. is culpable for deaths in Benghazi

Fox News Catherine Herridge sits down with Greta to talk more about this classified cable. She said she can’t speculate on the motives of her confidential sources coming forward with this, however she said it’s clear they want this information out in the public. She said it’s also clear to her based on this cable that the State Dept. is culpable in the deaths of the Ambassador and the other Americans in Benghazi on 9/11.



The second half of this video is an interview with Jasson Chaffetz discussing this as well. He won’t discuss classified cables, but he does tell an interesting story from when he was in Libya hearing from the man who got the call from Ambassador Stevens that they were under attack. It’s a story he hasn’t told before.

When is the media going to address that Admiral Charles M. Gaouette and U.S. General Carter Ham being fired over the Benghazi cover-up. The 2 Generals were FIRED for disobeying orders to help those who were killed during the Benghazi terrorist attack??

A powerfully deserved denunciation of Obama antics…. I wish Romney would step up and attack him directly over the weekend …. especially since the TV pundits are counseling not to take the risk. This is his most significant opportunity to display leadership on his own timeline, while others may not take the initiative …time is awasting …speak up Mitt !!.

Do you guys know what Cross Border Order (CBO) happens to be? I don’t know for sure if what I read this morning somewhere in the blogosphere is accurate or not. According to that blogger, the order to stand down would have had to come from one person and one person only, the President of the United States …. nobody else has that authority.

Is that true? And, if true …. then shouldn’t the impeachment papers be ready already?

The Obama administration threw our intelligence community under the bus. After 4 years as president, this was a moronic attempt to hide the truth until after the election.

When you blame those with all of the information, it shouldn’t be a surprise they would leak the truth about the terrorist attack in Benghazi to news outlets prior to the election. The intelligence community doesn’t accept blame for incompetence of any administration.

How cold must you be mr president?! To fail so miserably on the protection of these people, and then only care about covering your butt afterwards!

I’m sorry but the “smoking gun” is NOT the cables informing the administration that a threat was eminent. The “smoking gun” was the fact that there were two sailors on top of that building lazing a target. You don’t laz a target unless you’re expecting someone to deliver laser-guided munitions. The laser-designator itself is NOT a weapon. It only marks a target for the ordinance to strike!

The rule is to laz the target only when a fixed wing or rotary wing aircraft is within striking distance, otherwise the enemy could potentially reposition. Those two sailors had something overhead they were lazing the target for.

And they were in communication with someone in command. The question is: WHO??

The facts are spilling out a little at a time, but they are coming out. Hillary was guilty for not increasing security at the Benghazi consulate after repeated requests from the ambassador there. But it was Obama who did not order help to be sent there on 9/11/2012. They are both going down on this, which is why they tried so hard to cover it up in the first place.

I’ll bet that if Benghazi ever gets reported on in depth by the MSM it will be after Obama loses on Tuesday. Then they can dump on him and then say, “We reported it!”

If you think the murk isn’t deep enough yet, then there’s another aspect of this scandal which should not be overlooked:

What happened to the other Americans who were present? Who were flown out later on 9/12?

This is an interesting post which asks this and other questions:
http://pjmedia.com/blog/it-wasnt-just-four-americans-abandoned-in-benghazi/

And remember that Charles Woods told Hannity that he’d received an e-mail from one of those other Americans, telling him Ty had saved his life.
Being the good man he is, Mr Woods didn’t name names, but we might think about the Marines having been flown in from Tripoli, and who arrived at the Annexe … and we might think about that Libyan commander who said they were surprised to find about 30 Americans to evacuate from the Annexe, when they had reckoned with about 10 …

All the evidence points to the 911 anniversary coordinated attacks were professionally planned ahead of time, then executed.. was thus not a spontaneous reaction. Obama and Hillary had not only US Ambassador Stevens himself stating the urgently requested need for more security, ie; the State Dept’s own warnings ahead of time, but US Military, NSA, CIA, even foreign govt intelligence warnings of the coming coordinated threats and danger from the terrorist forces in Benghazi Libya. But Obama and Hillary both intentionally chose to ignore it at great cost to American lives, and US National Security. Thus, this was a pre-planned coordinated attack, for which whom subversive elements within the US govt, ie; Obama, who gave orders to his henchmen and women- Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Leo Panetta, etc on down, who acted, by their actions or inactions, directly and or indirectly, assisted radical Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Queda affiliated islamists/Salafists, to… Read more »

Will we hear from Gen. Ham in his own words or from any of the others rescued before the election on the Benghazi affair or only from others speaking for them?

If the scuttlebutt is true that Gen. Ham wanted to send help to Benghazi but was detained by his second in command, Romney ought to be talking to the good general right about now about retiring early and becoming his SecDef —

These two interviews are important, because they throw light on two strands of this scandal. One strand is the culpability of Hillary Clinton and the State Dept. They were told in terms as clear as can be that the security at Benghazi was non-existent, and that Al Qaida and the group who undertook the attack were active in the region. In addition, there was info from the Libyan government that the Feb 17th Brigade was infiltrated. Who provided that information? Ambassador Stevens! So – the video lie is even more shameful. There was no ‘fog of war’. The second strand goes to the culpability of the POS in the WH. Rep. Chaffetz nearly burst through my screen, he was that angry: the military did have ‘capability and proximity’ and didn’t do anything because there was no order from the WH to do so. That is – the POS sat on… Read more »

A setup is right. The “Lame Cherry” blog put forth the hypothesis that this was supposed to be a hostage situation by “friendly” terrorists so O could be seen as a statesman, negotiating freedom for the hostages. Having everyone “stand-down” then makes sense as you do not want to hurt the “friendly” terrorists. Amb. Stevens screwed it up by dying of smoke inhalation and the ex-SEALS by trying to protect him. To me that is the only way the “stand-down” order and the removal in August of the team of Marines makes sense.

According to Ed Klein Hillary can prove she tried to get Benghazi security so this leaves Obama. The military was told to stand down and according to Gen Ham orders of these kind come from the WH. Now we learn Gregory Hicks in Tripoli made phone calls immediately after getting a phone call from the ambassador. One plus one equals two not three and every arrow is pointing in Obama’s direction.

Also on the Blaze there is a video of Glenn Beck on his radio show tonight calling out the two media sources Newt spoke about. Glenn’s sources have not only told him who the media are but what they have.. Right Scoop, you may want to post this video.

If this keeps us we just may know what happened before the election.

E. Lee Zimmerman

Very true, but the next logical question — should it come out that the Odministration (specifically, the White House) stood in the way of increased security (which I don’t believe personally is the case) — would be where the story of the video came from. Clearly, SOMEONE had “blaming the video” up his (or her) sleeve, and that just doesn’t smack of an inner Oval Office mechanism. Maybe Jarrett, at best, but I’d be far more inclined to focus my eyes on the State Department for something of that magnitude.

colliemum
Guest
colliemum

I agree insofar as the video must have been given to sources in Egypt, where it allegedly was shown on some TV channel, and where the Cairo Embassy tweeted an apology for it even before the demo there – which was hours before the attack at Benghazi.
If it can be shown that Hillary and later Bathhouse Barry signed off on what their underlings Jarrett and Abedin did, then this scandal also touches the FBI who did not vet properly those two women.

E. Lee Zimmerman
Guest
E. Lee Zimmerman

Precisely. Someone started this ball rolling BEFORE the attack, and that smacks of the State Department, not the Oval Office (for my tastes).

colliemum
Guest
colliemum

I have the ever increasing suspicion that Hillary has no way to prove she asked for more security for Benghazi. I suspect this because there were repeated requests, even before that August cable from Ambassador Stevens, for more security, which were all denied. This was testified to at the Oct 9th hearing before the Issa Committee.

I think it is time for a very much closer look at the State Dept, and the role Madame Huma Abedin has been playing there. It looks to me as if she and Valerie Jarrett were the decision makers …

E. Lee Zimmerman
Guest
E. Lee Zimmerman

I think it was mentioned on Rush (or maybe I’ve read it elsewhere) that Bill claims that Hillary has a memo in a drawer/email in a drawer saying as such (denying additional security requests) from Showbama himself. It could just be a rumor, but I know I’ve heard/read it somewhere.

colliemum
Guest

Yes, Bill Clinton’s tale about Hillary having documents exonerating her has been talked about a few weeks ago.

But then again – why would we believe what Bill Clinton says?
He’s trying to protect the “Clinton” brand, in the vain hope that Hillary would stand for and win the 2016 election.

E. Lee Zimmerman
Guest
E. Lee Zimmerman

True, and I’ve found it on another board where it was asked in the form of a question, and even that intelligence expert stated that it was suspect. I think the point of it being revealed — rumor or not — is to continue to throw fuel on the fire of speculation: if you can keep your audience guessing, then there’s little chance they’ll get to the conclusion in time for it to effect/affect the election, which is all they’re worrying about at this point. If it were anyone other than the Clintons, I might dismiss it flat out … but we know how that brand works.

colliemum
Guest
colliemum

You’re spot on when you write that keeping the speculations going means time gained until 11/6.
The Clintons are positioning themselves for the post-Obama era, they’ve got access to the same internal poll data as Bathhouse Barry’s campaign has.

That is why I am disgusted that the various Congress committees are nowhere to be seen. Yes, the representatives are all up for election – but even the most hidebound Rep must have recognised that Trey Gowdy’s stance at the 10/9 hearing won him lots of extra votes. Chaffetz also has done himself no harm.

But hey – it’s the old BAU inside Washington, where they are all in it together. So uncomfortable questions don’t get asked, and everybody tries their best not to rock the boat.

E. Lee Zimmerman

Amen, mum. All any politico (either side of the aisle) is doing is trying to wait this out. I’m not sure that we’ll see full disclosure after Nov. 6 at this point b/c it’s hard for me and my li’l brain to figure out what went wrong. As I’ve tried to be clear, there are several strong elements here that smack of premeditation. You’ve got strong possibilities of some vast corruption including gun running, and until some enterprising mind can put it all together for us it’s only gonna look worse. I suspect someone somewhere has one or two missing pieces to this puzzle that, when revealed, will speak volumes about what we don’t yet know.

Correct me if I’m wrong – but isn’t it the case that the newly elected Congress convenes two weeks before the Inauguration?
If so, and if they get their fingers out, the House could start impeachment procedures immediately after the election, and the new Senate with a GOP majority, could get this done in January.

Yes, the newly elected Congress is in place two weeks before the inauguration. They won’t impeach at this late date. They probably would if Obama were re-elected, but it would take forever. I would be shocked if they moved that fast. I just don’t see it happening. I am impressed that the Intellegence Committee in the House and Senate are actually meeting and gathering information. Most of them are out campaigning. It heartens me that they are working on this. They must all be careful that they don’t bring charges so fast, because the President does have the power to pardon and I don’t know if he would be stupid enough to pardon himself, Hillary, Biden, Holder, et. al.
