Newly released email seems to contradict Leon Panetta’s Benghazi testimony

December 8, 2015

 Back in 2013 the Secretary of Defense,  Leon Panetta, testified in front of the Congress and he stated that there was not enough time for troops to respond to the Benghazi attack. This is also a claim that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has also made.

  Here is a quick refresher:

he [Leon Panetta] said there was no time to get forces to the scene in Libya, where four Americans were killed, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.

Panetta told the Senate Armed Services Committee nearly two years ago that “time, distance, the lack of an adequate warning, events that moved very quickly on the ground prevented a more immediate response.”

  However a newly released email from Leon Panetta’s Chief of Staff seems to contradict that claim, here is more:

“I just tried you on the phone but you were all in with S [apparent reference to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton],” reads the email, from Panetta’s chief of staff Jeremy Bash. “After consulting with General Dempsey, General Ham and the Joint Staff, we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.”

The email was sent out at 7:19 p.m. ET on Sept. 11, 2012, in the early stages of the eight-hour siege that also claimed the lives of Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith and two former Navy SEALs, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, private CIA contractors who raced to the aid of embattled State Department workers.  

Although the email came after the first wave of the attack at the consulate, it occurred before a mortar strike on the CIA annex killed Woods and Doherty.

  And here is what Judicial Watch, the organization which obtained the email, had to say about this new revelation:

“This leaves no doubt military assets were offered and ready to go, and awaiting State Department signoff, which did not come,” Judicial Watch, a nonprofit government watchdog said in a statement.

  But for some reason, possibly out of cowardice or for political reasons, the offer of military support was ignored by  Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama. Or I suppose it is possible Leon Panetta did not read the email; perhaps he thought an email entitled “Libya” which was sent while the attack in Benghazi was ongoing was an email which was of little import and he did not bother to read it…

  It has always taken a willing suspension of disbelief to think that while we still had a military presence in the Middle East that there was nobody available to get to the scene in time to help our beleaguered heroes, especially when nobody knew how long the attack was going to last. They did not even try.

  Of course we know the attack lasted several hours and came in three waves, and yet Chris Stevens, Glenn Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods were left to fend for themselves without the United States at least trying to rescue them and ever since this outrageous failure and dereliction of duty the regime has been trying to justify this indefensible lack of action. It can no longer be defended…

    This is no surprise, as is the cover-up. The surprise would be if any of this resulted in any real consequences for those involved.

    Another proven fact as we get closer and closer to the truth about Benghazi. Liars, Liars, pants and panties on fire.

    The media’s non-judgmental reaction to this will speak for itself. Dead americans killed by Hillary’s Arab Spring benefactors are inconsequential as we already know.

      Makes one wonder if it was a type of ‘sacrifice’ to their dark power gods Peter – not to be weird in stating that, for we know that they serve a dark lord of some kind. Their characters prove that out in what they do (their actions and their lying tongues)! The Bohemian Grove Society and the like which deal w/ the occult practices, the Clinton’s are associated/members, so not to far fetch to connect the dots (just like Bush / Kerry Skull n Bones Society).

        Have not heard about The Bohemian Grove Society, will Google them and see what you are talking about, whatever it is IF the Clintons are associates of the Society, it cannot be a good thing!

        This is just one group If you use a ‘private search engine’ and search: Hillary Clinton and the occult you’ll find some things. There’s some goofy things that come up too, but the elitist ways are not our ways.

        I haven’t heard anyone mention the Bohemian Grove Society in years Zip but yes they did dabble in the occult and if I am not mistaken I think Newt was in it at one time. (I think you probably know where I heard of this society Zip!)
        Lou, I don’t remember if Bill Clinton was in it or not but I would not be surprised if he was.

        I’ve not read much about Newt, but this speaks quite a bit of his bent:
        This group reminds me of those Jesus called vipers and white wash tombs. They’ve been around for generations and continue their rituals, which has nothing to do with God’s deal, but occult in nature.

      At some point you would think the Republican candidates would start to hammer her on this Peter but then again I still think many of them were in on it as well.

    Well we know that he wouldn’t just come out with the truth, BUT we can figure that if it were he and Hilly there instead of those dispensable’s, that it wouldn’t have happened in the first place!
