Members of the House Intelligence Committee learned in a closed-door briefing yesterday that more contractors are corroborating the report that the Obama administration had plenty of time to respond to the attack on the Benghazi diplomatic facility ... Nunes said the timeline begs the question: “What if the attack had went on for another 24 hours?”
“Would they have eventually sent help then? I mean, there is no accountability in this process that I’ve seen so far. And nobody knows what the president knew and when he knew it,” he said.
Interviewed late last month on The Mark Levin Show, ex-Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino laid out a timeline that appears to validate Johnson's reporting.
I thought the Cavalry would show up! ... I never thought in a thousand years that if we had an "A-to-Z security plan" that "B" would never show up... and that FEST team, the Foreign Emergency Support Team, over a seven-hour fight where our Ambassador was brutally killed, along with Sean Smith and those two heroic SEALs.
It's tough for me to talk about because it brings back really bad memories. I can't imagine if something had broke bad on my end. I can't imagine screaming in the radio calling for help and not one person answered to help. It's a national tragedy and it's worse than people know...
It was an insider attack, planned for months. The administration didn't want to admit that Libya was a failed mess. It had to be a foreign policy success right before the election, they knew there was a foreign policy debate coming up.
He [Obama] had just gotten destroyed during the first debate with Romney because he had nothing to stand on.
So they had to find a scapegoat when this happened. They tried this ridiculous meme about the video, which is basically laughed at now, but back then was accepted by a collaborative media that just wanted to propagate this Aesop's fable.
But I really believe that they just had them stand down because they had memories of "Blackhawk Down."
And if we got stuck over there, we're going to have to tell a story about how Libya is a failure. But they never -- can you imagine listening to the cries for help?
The horror. And now these tapes are apparently out there, there were drones overhead and there's video too, which were there about 90 minutes after the attack started.
They let these people die and suffer grievous injury because of a simple political calculation. It's sick.
In August of this year, unconfirmed but credible reports asserted that Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett made the call to stand down.
Confidential sources close to Conservative Report have confirmed that Valerie Jarrett was the key decision-maker for the administration, the night of the Benghazi terrorist attack on 9/11/2012...
...at approximately 5 PM Washington time, reports came in through secure-channels that Special Mission Benghazi was under attack. Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey summoned the President,and briefed him on the crisis, face to face.
...As that meeting drew to a close, Ms. Jarrett, who is also the Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, went from the living quarters to the White House Situation Room, where the attack in Benghazi was being monitored by Dempsey, Panetta and other top-ranking officials.
Whether she was instructed by the President to go there, or if she went of her own volition, is only known by the President and herself.
Perhaps House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa could subpoena Valerie Jarrett to determine what she knows about the night of September 11, 2012.
That is, if it doesn't impact the 42 other investigations he's "working on".
