Barack Obama personally ordered the “stand-down” that caused the deaths of four Americans

hillary in front of caskets lying       Forty days before the election, Obama could not afford for al Qaeda to be resurrected from their premature grave and attack a US embassy. Afraid of scores of US casualties in an Obama-declared “normalcy zone” in the Mideast, Obama sent in two drones to monitor what happened—not to help consulate personnel, but to contain the problem—and the political blowback.

by Danielle Pletka: of the American Enterprise Institute

The media and the White House, suggested that it was confusion in chaos because of so many attacks (i.e., violent protests) in so many different places in the Muslim world that led to the muddling of facts about what happened where and when.

Not so according to Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute whose investigation revealed “…that officials from [Obama] on down were intentionally and falsely insisting the the 9/11/12 attack [in Benghazi] was not an act of terrorism is screamingly obvious.

Pletka was right although it would be about three weeks that a statement by the new US Army commander of Africom, Lt. Gen. David Rodriquez (when he relieved his predecessor, four star general Carter F. Ham), revealed that **Barack Obama personally ordered the “stand-down” that caused the deaths of four Americans.

Before he was relieved of his command on Sept. 11, 2012, Gen. Carter Ham led a very undistinguished, political-military career—which is likely why Barack Obama appointed him to head Africom. Gen. Ham proved that even a political soldier can be a patriot. He put his career on the line at a time when integrity was needed. Too bad he was not able to deploy his ready-response team to save two former Seals who also put their lives on the line that night—and lost them.

It was in August when Stevens first notified Washington of attempts to breach the consulate perimeter. The Pentagon launched two drones to patrol the skies over the consulate. One drone, although the White House has denied it, was armed with missiles. The other was armed with a video camera that allowed the DoD, the CIA and the White House Situation Room to have a real time video stream of what was happening in the compound at Benghazi.

Between Aug. 27 and Sept. 11, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus, National Intelligence Adviser James Clapper and, of course Barack Obama received over 230 warnings from Benghazi before the attack on September 11. A real president would have taken the warnings from one of his Ambassadors seriouslyparticularly when that warning was preceded with 229 others…and holes in the embassy wall in which one was big enough to install a Mickey D drive-through in it.

blood on their hands benghazi

And, no real president would have downgraded the security of a compound on US soil in a very hostile Muslim nation to “save a few extra taxpayer bucks” for his green energy friends.

Someone in the Pentagon or the CIA took the threats seriously enough to schedule the drone to flyovers of the Benghazi compound at regular intervals. The DOD didn’t send the Marines that the emails sent by Stevens requested. Nor did the CIA—which was specifically told to “stand down” by the White House Situation Room. When the CIA was told to stand down Woods and Doherty told the CIA to screw itself and went to Benghazi.

In a September 2 email to Secretary Clinton, Stevens described a meeting he had with Benghazi’s Supreme Security Commander. In the cable, Stevens expressed concerns that Libyan police and security forces were too weak to keep the country secure. In that email Stevens said his fears were based on the growing strength of the Abu Salim Brigade in Dema—a small village just outside of Benghazi

Stevens suspected that the Abu Salim Brigade, supported by al Qaeda and possibly aided by Iran, would ultimately overthrow the provisional Libyan government. No one in Washington, least of all Barack Obama, listened to him.

Obama was engaged in his own personal war to get elected, which of course was more far more important to him at the moment than the lives of the State Dept. personnel in Benghazi.

Since Obama only attended about 1/3 of his daily security briefings during his first term, its likely that prior to the actual Sept. 11 attack on the Benghazi compound, he may well have been completely unaware of the fact that Libyan Security forces armed only with mace, billy clubs and whistles were the only thing standing between Ambassador Stevens, his small staff and Islamist terrorists armed with rocket launchers, mortars, hand grenades and AK-47s. The official duty of the Libyan security team was described as “traffic control.” (Since the death of his ambassador, Obama now has photo ops regularly in the White House Situation Room.)

After Defense Secretary Leon Panetta made the following statement about not deploying troops without the intel that says its a good idea, career military people began talking. What they had to say suggests someone in Washington needs to be fired, and someone else needs to be impeached. The quote attributed to Panetta was: “…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 taking place. 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.”

However, when Gen. Carter Ham, head of Africom, received the same emails that Panetta, Clinton and Obama received, he assembled a rapid response unit and informed Panetta he was ready to go. Ham was ordered to stand down.

He told Panetta to screw himself, telling the Secretary that he was sending his men in. Less than one minute later Lt. Gen. David Rodriquez told Ham—his boss—he had just been relieved of his command because he refused to obey a direct order from the Commander-in-Chief.

Obama then appointed Rodriguez as the new head of Africom. Now you know precisely who gave the order to “stand down” that resulted in the sacrificial death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, IT Specialist Sean Smith and former Navy Seals Glenn Doherty and Tyrone Woods for “political points.” (It is my personal opinion that any US citizen who votes for Barack Obama needs to forever refrain from ever again referring to themselves as someone who is even remotely patriotic.)

(Note: the Obama Administration also lied when it said that Doherty and Woods were assigned to personally protect Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi. That was a blatant fabrication. The former Seals, attached to the CIA, refused the White House order to “stand down.” They went to the Consulate and defended the mission with their lives. While neither man was on active duty in the US Navy at the time, both men deserve the US Congressional Medal of Honor for bravery above and beyond the call of duty.

the seals

Before believing the blatant donkey kong excreted from both sides of Obama‘s mouth whenever he speaks, pay attention to the stream of emails from Stevens in Benghazi and the CIA in Tripoli sent repeatedly to the State Department,

The White House, the Pentagon and the CIA which confirm that on September 11, 2012 as the terrorist strike on the US Consulate began, the White House Situation Room, the Secretary of State, the CIA, the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs and the Director of the CIA—and, for what he’s worth, Obama‘s Director of National Intelligence, retired USAF Lt. Gen. James Clapper who, in the end, is going to be expected to fall on his is Air Force Academy saber for Obama on this one, probably just before the Election as more Americans realize it was Obama himself who gave the “stand down” order. Clearly, the Benghazi mess is not going to go away anytime soon—particularly since the Obama Administration and the Democratic leadership has assured the media that this issue is much too serious to “rush through” before the election.

Win or loss, you can bet that on Nov. 7, the Benghazi affair will be protected by Executive Privilege. Hearings in the House—and in the Senate if the GOP picks up enough seats to regain control—will once again be stonewalled by the most “transparent Administration in the history of the United States” (Obama‘s words).

You can take that observation to the bank because there has been no bipartisan cooperation in the “cause and effect” assessments and decisions emanating from the Obama Administration. Obama, like Franklin D. Roosevelt before him, sees himself as a one-man executive, legislative and judicial entity who, by Executive degree, can empower himself with the authority of a king who answers to no one.

As we can see from the past four years, when you’re a community organizer with no real corporate or senior level executive government management experience, and when your key advisers—including your Attorney General and Solicitor General—see no evil in your political sins, you will have the trappings of absolute power. T

The American people have forgotten a time-honored adage which they very seriously need to remember. The only difference between a rut in the road of progress and an economic mass grave is the size and shape of the hole. When you can no longer patch the economic hole with money, someone in a black shroud holding a large, sharp scythe will be speaking the eulogy over this nation.

Hillary More Of The Same

Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on Alinsky writings and Obama writes about him in his books. Books: Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals

Hillary more of the sameSaul Alinsky died about 43 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today…….

There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

All eight rules are currently in play

1) Healthcare Control healthcare and you control the people.

2) Poverty Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

6) Education Take control of what people read and listen to take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

8) Class Warfare Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

JESSICA DESVARIEUX, TRNN PRODUCER: Welcome to The Real News Network. I’m Jessica Desvarieux in Baltimore. And welcome to this edition of The Hudson Report.

Now joining us is Michael Hudson. He is a distinguished research professor of economics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. His two newest books are The Bubble and Beyond and Finance Capitalism and Its Discontents.

Thanks for joining us, Michael.

MICHAEL HUDSON, PROF. ECONOMICS, UMKC: Thank you, Jessica.

DESVARIEUX: So, Micheal, what are you tracking this week?

HUDSON: The big news is all about the Ukraine. And it’s about the events that happened in the shootings on February 20./ Late last week, the German television program ARD Monitor, which is sort of their version of 60 Minutes here, had an investigative report of the shootings in Maidan, and, what they found out is that contrary to what President Obama is saying, contrary to what the U.S. authorities are saying, that the shooting was done by the U.S.-backed Neo Nazi Svoboda Party and the protesters themselves, the snipers and the bullets all came from the Hotel Ukrayina, which was the center of where the protests were going, and the snipers on the hotel were shooting not only at the demonstrators, but also were shooting at their own–at the police and the demonstrators to try to create chaos.

They’ve spoken to the doctors, who said that all of the bullets and all of the wounded people came from the same set of guns. They’ve talked to reporters who were embedded with the demonstrators, the anti-Russian forces, and they all say yes. All the witnesses are in agreement: the shots came from the Hotel Ukrayina. The hotel was completely under the control of the protesters, and it was the government that did it.

So what happened was that after the coup d’état, what they call the new provisional government put a member of the Svoboda Party, the terrorist party, in charge of the investigation. And the relatives of the victims who were shot are saying that the government is refusing to show them the autopsies, they’re refusing to share the information with their doctors, they’re cold-shouldering them, and that what is happening is a coverup.

aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Sound familiar   

It’s very much like the film Z about the Greek colonels trying to blame the murder of the leader on the protesters, rather than on themselves.

Now, the real question that the German data has is: why, if all of this is front-page news in Germany, front-page news in Russia–the Russian TV have been showing their footage, showing the sniping–why would President Obama directly lie to the American people? This is the equivalent of Bush’s weapons of mass destruction.

Why would Obama say the Russians are doing the shooting in the Ukraine. That’s justified all of this anti-Russian furor? And why wouldn’t he say the people that we have been backing with $5 billion for the last five or ten years, our own people, are doing the shooting, we are telling them to doing the shooting, we are behind them, and we’re the ones who are the separatists?

What has happened is that the Western Ukraine, the U.S. part, are the separatists trying to break up the Ukraine, in keeping, pretty much, with what Brzezinski advised in his book some years ago when he said breaking Ukraine off from Russia would be the equivalent of blocking any Russian potential military power.

Now, the only American who’s spoken up against this was, President Carter. And Jimmy Carter said in an interview with Salon he’s very worried. He says, quote, “The rest of the world, almost unanimously, looks at America as the No. 1 warmonger. That we revert to armed conflict almost at the drop of a hat–and quite often it’s not only desired by the leaders of our country, but it’s also supported by the people of America.”

Now, the next day in The Financial Times they did an interview with Singapore’s prime minister, Lee. And the prime minister, Lee, said, I think you–to the Financial Times interviewer, “I think you should have thought of that before encouraging the demonstrators on the Maidan.” I think some people–meaning the U.S.–didn’t think through all the consequences. Can you take responsibility for the consequences? And when it comes to grief, will you be there? You can’t be there, since you have so many other interests to protect.

So what foreign leaders are saying: look what American’s doing. This is what it did in the Hungarian Revolution in 1956, and again with the Czechs in 1968. It encourages foreign groups to fight against the Russians, promises support, and then it just leaves them hanging.

The Ukrainians in the East are–the Russian-speakers, are very worried, because the separatists in the West, the American-backed separatists, have already begun to cut off water to Crimea, saying, well, you’re not going to get the water, we’re going to starve you out.

They’ve already come and gone into Eastern Ukraine. They’ve closed down the Russian-speaking TV stations, saying, if you’re trying to defend against the IMF and the eurozone austerity plan that we have, if you’re disagreeing with austerity, if you’re disagreeing for our removing the gas subsidy and making you–razing your rights, we’re accusing you of separatism. They’ve begun to arrest protesters against austerity. They’ve sent in assassination squads to begin killing the people who are protesting the Western-backed austerity plans for the Ukrainians.

Now, already in today’s news you have Ukrainians in Western Ukraine saying, wait a minute, our jobs, to the extent that we’re working for factories and industry–we make real cars for Russia, we make inputs to Russian armaments for the airplanes, for the other things–our market is in Russia. We’ve tried to sell to Germany. We’re not able to sell to Germany. Andrew Jack in today’s Financial Times has an article on that, that there’s already very low living standards in the Eastern Ukraine. Their only hope is to keep employment. Their only means of employment is to sell to Russia. And now they’re being forced into a condition to say, look, either you separate, or we’ll separate and leave you.

Putin has continually said he has no desire at all for Russia to take part of the Eastern Ukraine. And the reason is quite simple. It’s been simple for the last 20 years. Ukraine is not really very self-supporting. It’s a burden to whoever takes it. Russia doesn’t want the burden of supporting the Ukraine.

Putin has asked for a meeting with the Europeans and the Americans to talk about a federal Ukraine, sort of a loose federation where each region will have its own autonomy and all the three regions will agree not to have atom bombs right on their border. What President Obama said over the weekend was, we will only have a meeting if you agree not to charge Ukraine for gas, if you agree to give them gas for nothing at all, without getting paid for gas month after month. You have to promise to keep giving all of Ukraine gas.

And the president has justObama,sent naval vessels with atomic weapons into the Black Sea, threatening Putin to wipe out Russia in 20 minutes. He’s threatening World War III. Europeans are scared stiff about this because they know that they’ll be the first recipients of a Russian retaliation.

ob finger 2Why is America rattling this? Why is he not telling the American people, look, we’ve backed opponents to Russia and I’m afraid they’ve got out of hand, we’re really very sorry that they’ve been shooting innocent civilians, we’re sorry they’re acting illegally, we’re sorry they’re kleptocrats, we’re sorry they have closed all other Russian-speaking TV stations, we’re sorry that they’re–you know, this is bad behavior, this is not democracy, what we want to back is democracy?

But Obama’s not saying that. He’s saying, not only are we backing the Svoboda Party, but we told Putin that no–don’t even bother coming to a meeting with us unless you give Ukraine gas for nothing. Well, Putin gave a speech in Russia saying that Russia is the only country that actually gives to the Ukraine, that is actually giving them gas.

Now Germany’s worried–and that’s why it was the German television station that did this investigative report–Germany’s worried because it gets its gas over a pipeline that runs through the Ukraine. And the Ukrainians’ Svoboda Party, the party in charge of investigating the Maidan massacre, is saying, we’re going to blow up the pipelines to Russia, because what we want to do is prevent Russia from getting the foreign exchange by selling its gas that it would use to build up its military power.

So someone in the administration here in America has said, look, if we can just stop Russia from getting export payments for its gas, it won’t have enough money for militarization and we’ll win the Cold War. This is the coup de grace, as Brzezinski wrote in his book before. And this is crazy. The Russians say, well, it’s true that Ukraine is making a lot of our arms, that we’re importing it from them, but we can replicate the factories here. It’ll cost us a little more money, but we have unemployment in Russia. We’re going to have to actually build up our own industry. And we’re obviously thinking very quickly of how much we can export to China, Iran.

me lie.bmp I just changed the promise.bmp smaller

Russia is immediately making a rapprochement with Iran. They’re now questioning whether they’re going to let the Americans withdraw from Afghanistan through Russia by saying, wait a minute, if you just moved naval vessels with atomic weapons right into the Black Sea, threatening, you know, to bomb us?  We’re not going to let your army come into Russia from Afghanistan, because you may just keep on coming. This is crazy.(Obama steps in it again)

Now, normally there’s only a news blackout like that if there’s something very serious going on. I can see Obama is worried about how is he going to go down in history coming off like George Bush with his weapons of mass destruction line, but we may not have more, in a couple of days, of history left if he continues along this path. It’s like the Tom Lehrer song, so long, mommy, I’m off to drop the bomby, I’ll be home when the war is over, a couple of hours from now. That’s the kind of danger that we’re in. And it’s as if the Americans said, well, it’s all about freedom fighters trying to defend themselves against the Russian bear, where it’s really a case of America trying to goad Russia into acting intemperately. So the question is: where are we going to go from here?

DESVARIEUX: Alright. Michael Hudson, thank you so much for joining us.HUDSON: Thank you, Jessica.DESVARIEUX: And thank you for joining us on The Real News Network.End

Evidence for Russian Involvement in East Ukraine Based on Shoddy Journalism

Robert Parry: The Obama administration and Kiev government claimed that Russian soldiers were present at the building occupations, yet it turns out that this assertion was based on photos the U.S. government provided to NYTimes and that the newspaper since has had to retract – April 24, 14

—————————–

When former President Zelaya of Hondorus was removed from office in July of 2009, the Obama administration joined with leftist dictators Fidel Castro of Cuba, Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, and Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua in calling for his reinstatement. The Obama White House seemed oblivious to the Honduran constitution, as well as the threat Zelaya posed to the stability of the country and the region. When the courageous Honduran people held firm to their democratic constitution and refused to yield to the pressure exerted by the U.S., the Obama administration found no way of saving face other than reversing course

After their amateurish and myopic miscalculation, which exposed the Obama State Department’s lack of experience and incompetence, one could imagine the White House would want to avoid the subject of Honduras and Zelaya altogether.

That, however, does not seem to be the case, as we learn from the new chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL).

According to Ros-Lehtinen, she has received reports that the State Department is applying considerable pressure on members of the Honduran government to absolve Zelaya of his crimes. In a letter earlier this month to Arturo Valenzuela, the assistant secretary of state for western hemisphere affairs, Ros-Lehtinen calls for an end to the coercion of Honduran officials by the U.S. government that is allegedly taking place:

“I am gravely concerned by reports I have received regarding efforts by U.S. officials to pressure the Government of Honduras to absolve former President Manuel Zelaya of the criminal charges he faces in that country and ask, within all applicable rules and guidelines, that if these reports are accurate, the State Department immediately cease exerting such undue influence over duly elected Honduran government officials acting in accordance with Honduran law.”

With Honduras’ economy still in shambles in the aftermath of Zelaya’s attempt to install himself as dictator, the U.S. has announced it will not renew a $215-million aid program that ended in December 2010, which provided farming technology to Honduran farmers and helped improve the country’s infrastructure.

Whether this decision by the Obama administration is a result of their efforts to pressure Honduran officials to grant amnesty to Zelaya is uncertain. Nevertheless, the news does not come at a good time for the administration, and it harkens back to those treacherous days in 2009 when the White House was threatening Honduras with holding back financial aid if it did not comply with its demands. Honduras government officials acted wisely in rescuing Honduras from a president intent on remaining in power indefinitely and dismantling the country’s democratic institutions?   And then their was Egypt and Libya.

And then there was the release of 5 Terrorists

Who Gives Orders To A Four Star General ?????

A source with intimate information about the events that happened on the ground in Benghazi the night the U.S. Consulate and the CIA annex was attacked by terrorists told Breitbart News that, ultimately, only the President of the United States, or someone acting on his authority, could have prevented Special Forces either on the ground or nearby from helping those Americans who were under deadly assault.

According to the source, when the attack on the Consulate occurred, a specific chain of command to gain verbal permission to move special-forces in must have occurred. SOCAFRICA commander Lieutenant Col. Gibson would have contacted a desk officer at the time, asking for that permission.

That desk officer would have called Marine Corps Col. George Bristol, then in command of Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara. From there, Bristol would have made contact with Rear Admiral Brian Losey, then Commander of Special Operations Command Africa. Losey would have contacted four-star General Carter Ham, commander of U.S. AFRICOM at the time.

“Ham answers directly to the President of the United States,” said the source. It wasn’t a low-level bureaucrat making the call, the source adamantly added.

That call may have been made early in the engagement. Both Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey testified in January that they had no further communication with President Barack Obama after an initial briefing in the early hours of the  Benghazi crisis, which continued through the night

However what about then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?

Death and Deceit in Benghazi

Obama and Hillary Clinton lied They knew exactly what happened and who was responsible for it.

We had hundreds of people watching in real time, as 30 Americans were being attacked for seven hours. Nobody rode to their rescue.” Obama and Hillarey Clinton lied They knew exactly what happened and who was responsible for it They knew it was not a video they knew it was not a protest that had gotten out of hand.

The White House situation room starts receiving emails at about 1 pm that the mission is under hostile attack. The only response was that the Pentagon sends a drone armed with a video camera so that everyone in Washington can see what transpires in real time, as it happens. The White House, State Department, the Pentagon, and the CIA all had live feeds. Obama sat and watched the massacre. Three times the Seals asked for help and were denied. We had assets all over the area and none were called in to help. When it was over Obama went to Las Vegas laughing and joking. And for days kept telling the video lie on national TV.

Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said that due to the lack of “real-time information,” he opted not to send help to the Officials under attack at the Benghazi Consulate. As you can see he was not telling the truth. Reports from several agencies including Reuters and CBS News reveal the administration knew precisely what was going on almost immediately  Obama is getting a pass, and his behavior is increasingly indefensible.

President Of The Free World Calls Springsteen A Couple Times A Week. So in the midst of worsening Middle East violence, a stagnant economy, and a fastapproaching fiscal cliff, President Barack Obama repeatedly calls a music entertainer and whines he does not have a campaign song. Almost as pathetic as that scenario is the actual song someone put together. This is now truly LIARS running on spent fumes.
