Mike Baker and Col. David Hunt on Benghazi: Who was watching and what assets were available

Former CIA operative Mike Baker and Retired Col. David Hunt were on Judge Jeanine tonight to discuss who knew and who was watching the attack unfold as well as what assets were available and how quick could they get there. As you might expect, it just makes the Obama admin look even more incompetent.

“So Americans understand the costs of war. Yet as a country, we will never tolerate our security being threatened, nor stand idly by when our people have been killed. ”
That quote was from the speech our Dear Leader made when Bin Laden was killed.
I guess it’s different when having to kill bad guys makes Obama look bad.

The man should be impeached for gross dereliction of duty if not treason.

A new article out by Fox News today has confirmed that SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were using M48 light machine guns with laser mounts.

What laser capability did Benghazi team have?
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/11/04/what-laser-capability-did-benghazi-team-have/

I’m not 100% sure what they actually had, there’s a couple different kinds, but my suspicion is that they were using something like this:

CIA’s Mike Baker said he respects Panetta the RED? Maybe he needs some intel on good ole Leon… Gates’s successor, Leon Panetta, the former CIA director, had a record of opposing weapons systems and military action when he was a left-wing congressman from California. This was Panetta’s record: Panetta in 1983 endorsed the nuclear weapons freeze, a concept backed by the Soviet Union which would have frozen in place a Soviet nuclear advantage in Europe. Panetta supported a ban on the testing and deployment of new nuclear ballistic missiles. Panetta opposed CIA covert operations to undermine the Communist Sandinista regime, calling Reagan’s support for the Nicaraguan freedom fighters a “dirty war.” Panetta opposed the neutron bomb, an enhanced radiation weapon designed to counter a Soviet tank build-up in Europe. Panetta opposed the B-1 bomber, which was funded under Reagan and is today a key part of the fleet. While most… Read more »

Losing viewers hasn’t affected network news. They blame loss of viewership on one of the hosts. How about we don’t like your propaganda! This is America and we should be able to turn on our news and hear what is really happening! With Sandy, Benghazi, Fast & Furious, Solyndra or Acorn, they cover up, don’t report or lie. There might be one way we can turn them into true honest journalists. If we don’t watch ANYTHING
on their networks, they will lose advertising, therefore they will lose money and that is the only thing they understand. I say boycott networks, until they realize we are not going to put up with it anymore!

I understand why they dont want him endorsing Romney as of current but BUSH needs to come out and fight back at some point and time.

Not a lot to share, except I heard this theory immediately afterward and didn’t think a lot of it. Now, many weeks later, I’m giving it second thought. With all the information coming out now about how security was mishandled before and during the attack, the one thing that stands out to me is how this easily explains the requests for additional security being denied, the “stand down” approach, the lack of an order for intervention by assets specifically on call for this type of scenario…

I almost hate to say it. I thought Bengazi was about sheer incompetence and naivete. Now I believe the kidnapping scenario is possible.

Yikes.

Fox News has all the regular weekday folks on today! It’s like it’s a Monday instead of Sunday. Cool. Of course when Peyton steps up behind the Bronco line, Daddy’s gonna have to turn the channel.

Also, I saw a little phrase that I really like in an American Thinker piece this morning. You might like it too.

Here it is: ~electoral humiliation~

When that engulfs Obama Tuesday evening, there are going to be tens of millions of American’s experiencing: ~electoral euphoria~

It’s going to be tough to sleep on Tuesday evening, that’s for sure…at least until 9 PM or so, when the race is called for Romney. I’m gettin’ all giddy about it. Is this site going to be a happy gathering place or what?

Another consideration as far as “timelines” go. These QRF’s are usually so prepared for this sort of thing that it is a good bet that they could have (not confirmed of course) ALREADY been in the air and on their way to assist, but because the presidential order was never given they couldn’t engage.

So, essentially what you would have is either a bird flying overhead ready to engage or one that is en route to their location; but because no order was ever issued, they were left to the mercy of the situation.

I just don’t believe for one second that those two sailors were lasing a target simply on the HOPE that someone would show. I still believe that they believed that someone was ALREADY en route or on station to assist. They were EXPECTING someone to engage the bad guys, but no one ever did.

colliemum
Guest
colliemum

Indeed!

From some posts over at PJM by Bob Owen, I learned that lasing a target means they cannot fire their weapon. So why would they leave themselves defenseless and unable to go on fighting unless they thought the cavalry was coming in?
After all, it now looks as if fighting still went on for another hour if Ty Woods and Glen Doherty were killed by that mortar around 4 a.m.
I don’t believe for a second they did what they did just ‘to frighten off the attackers’.

stage9
Guest
stage9

Yeah, if you’re going to “frighten off attackers” you don’t use a laser designator. Now, there are several DIFFERENT kinds of designators, so I’m not really sure what they were ACTUALLY using, but if it’s anything like this one, ( http://www.americanspecialops.com/photos/marsoc/msot-jtac.php ) you can see that there is NO WAY you’re going to use this thing while taking heavy fire unless you’re confident someone is going to respond in haste.

I am NOT going to put down my weapon until I hear from command that they are either en route or on station. PERIOD!

colliemum
Guest
colliemum

Now it makes even more sense to me, who obviously has not been a veteran of either your USMC or our SAS, that this would have been suicidal insanity to do while under fire.
And we can be certain that neither of the SEALs were insane.

Also, it just occurred to me, they wouldn’t have done this unless they knew air support was on its way because they would surely have known that the mortars – which killed them in the end – would endanger those inside the house, whom they were defending. They wouldn’t have made themselves and the others into such target. No way.

It goes to show that those spokespeople in the CIA are probably bureaucrats, desk top jockeys, who don’t know about warfare at first hand, and think that everybody just has to accept their words as gospel.

If you have not yet seen the movie, “Agenda -Grinding Down America,” please take advantage of this offer from the producer to watch it online without cost in the coming week before the national elections in the United States of America. It is highly informative, well researched, full of ‘heart’ for the best principles of truth and honesty, and full of competent commentary contributions by highly respected and God-fearing leaders. Every American parent with one iota of concern for their children and grandchildren and the life they will live in the future should watch this.

The rise of the anti-christ. Ready or not, here he comes… and nothing will stop him. Good film except for one conclusion that he drew: “That communism is the final phase and goal of socialism.” I emphatically disagree! Communism is the final phase and goal of ATHEISM! Atheism is what drives communism. Socialism is only the TRIGGER! Communism is driven by the belief that there is no higher authority than the state. Atheism is driven by the notion that there is no higher authority than man! And that eliminates GOD as the final and ultimate authority does it not? If God does not exist, then MAN becomes the ultimate authority and with that the state. (communism) If God DOES exist, then we are ultimately subject to HIS authority.

In 1994, When Bill Clinton got conservative-clobbered in the midterm elections that put Newt in charge of the house, Bill got the message in. 54 house seats switched from democrat to republican and gave them control of the house for the first time since 1954. It was like a multi-deca-million person skin bracer slap. Although he didn’t exactly say, “thanks I needed that”, he, in pragmatic fashion, tacked towards the center, worked with that house, and passed some meaningful, helpful legislation. He won a second term. Obama on the other hand, lost 63 seats in the house during his midterm meltdown. He also lost six seats in the senate and 680 seats in state house legislatures. In Michigan’s 2010 election, republicans gained control of the entire enchilada…the house, the senate, the governor, the supreme court, and the secretary of state. Is that a sea change or what?

What kind of monster lets Americans down this way and doesn’t even TRY to help them? Someone WILL be held accountable for this, regardless of who wins the election. Too much has happened, too many lies have been told, and too many people have been disappointed and abandoned. This is the time for the conservatives in Congress to stand up and demand answers. Although the mainstream media may try to cover it up, Americans ARE watching and we ARE interested in how this turns out.

I just love the fact how Judge Jeanine Pirro is so riled-up over this terrible incident that she is keeping this story (Benghazi) going all the way to the election. And doesn’t seem to care if whether or not the left and the MSM attacks her.
She truly is implicating the White House Administration, and isn’t afraid to point the finger at the Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton-who is now lawyering-up, also the agencies of the CIA, the NSA, and President Obama.
This is what real journalism looks like, and it takes a NYC judge to show other journalist how its done.

O/T but thought important to discuss. The deaths in Benghazi are extremely important to Americans. While we are focused on Benghazi and the election, the MSM is conveniently ignoring yet another federal law violation by Barky Boy. He was required to disclose new regulations imminent in his 2nd term and has failed to do so. He is hiding the destruction to American businesses with an out-of-control EPA, again. Yet crickets from the MSM. Did they give Bush a pass? Rhetorical question.

This is the kind of thing that Sun Tzu warned about in his book; The Art of War. You never let politicians/leaders interfere with military operations. The moment you do that, you might as well pack your bags and go home…Because you are guaranteed to lose (both in lives and of the war itself), as decisions are made by people living in their ivory towers. It doesn’t take a genius to see what has been done: (1) Air assets in the form of F-16 fighters and AC-130 gunships were available. (2) A quick reaction force of Army Delta and Marines (FAST) were available. (3) Drones (CIA?) were overhead providing a real-time feed. 100-to-1 these leaks to Fox News are by a bunch of people within the military loop; who saw the feed of the whole situation and witnessed what this Administration did.

What this report brings home again, is the part about the number of other consulate personnel that these two men heroically rescued. They had to crash through street barriers that had blocked off the surrounding streets, under fire. It is a miracle that they could do it. But the WH was prepared to let these 30 people die. Unbelievable.

Have always believed this was a kidnapping set-up, which AQ decided to ignore in favour of just killing as many as they could, maybe as revenge for the transfer of ‘their’ arms to Syria a few weeks earlier. It all just beggars belief.

I’m beginning to think that the first wave of terrorists actually weren’t that well briefed, and were confused in their own ‘fog of war’. And that they then went into full murderous rage when Ty Woods and his group did come in from the Annexe, fought them, killed some and took all away back to the annexe, where there then was the second battle, which Ty Woods and later the group from Tripoli with Glen Doherty fought to the death.
