The man in the video below talking with Fox News’ Adam Housley was an eye-witness to the attack on the Benghazi Special Mission where Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died on September 11, 2012, and an unknow number were seriously wounded. The man whose voice and appearance is disguised, is with Special Ops and says others want to speak-out but have been threatened by the State Department. A 40-man special ops training exercise (C-110) was underway in Croatia only 3-1/2 hours away. He believes the C110 (Commanders and Extremist Force) could have been in the area in 4-6 hours and been able to save the lives of those lost at the Annex.
“And you hear a whole bunch of advisers say, ‘We wouldn’t have sent them there, because the security was an unknown situation.’ If it’s an unknown situation, at a minimum, you send forces there to facilitate the exfill—medical, injuries. We could have sent a C130 to provide medical evacuation for the injured.”
“The State Department could have called another station for help, as well. According to the source, there were at least 15 special forces and highly skilled State Dept. security staff in the Libyan capital of Tripoli who were not deployed even though they were trained as a quick response force. By air, the travel time between Tripoli and Benghazi is roughly over one hour.”
Adam Housely quotes the eye-witness saying “many connected to Benghazi feel threatened and are afraid to talk. So far confidential sources have fed some information but no one has come forth publicly, on camera until now.
“The problem is, you’ve got guys in my position, guys in the Special Operations community who are still active and still involved…and they would be decapitated if they came forward with information that could affect high-level commanders.”
Housely quotes the eye-witness saying his community feels there was a betrayal, all the way to the top and the people on the ground in Benghazi were left to fend for themselves.
“I don’t blame them for not coming forward. It’s something that’s risky for someone in our profession to talk about anything in the realm of politics, when it deals with policy.”
HOUSELY: Our source provides insight into how the Military reacted. From the moment the attack began, through the immediate hours after Ambassador Chris Stevens went missing, what they were told to do and what not to do as Stevens, Diplomatic Officer Sean Smith, and former Special Operations members Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed.
“There’s a lot of responsibility, a lot of onus that needs to be taken up and accounted for…”
HOUSELY: …our source says there were two elite military units that could have made it in time, including the one training in Croatia…He also said, as the attack began, there were at least 15 Special Forces and highly skilled State Department Security staff available in the Capital of Tripoli who were not dispatched, even though they were trained as a Quick Response Force.
Meantime a group of American reinforcements in Tripoli which included CIA Global Response Agent Glen Doherty and about 7 others took matters into their own hands – a little known fact that contradicts the version of events in the State Department report. The team commandeered a small jet and flew to Benghazi to try to help secure the CIA Annex still under fire.
Doherty would eventually be killed on the roof along with his friend Tyrone Woods and our source says “these men deserve the highest medal of honor for their actions.”
“If it wasn’t for that decision, I think we’d be talking completely differently about this situation. I think you’d be looking at 20+ hostages captured by AQ or you’d be looking at a lot of dead Americans in Benghazi.”
HOUSELY: We heard the same from other witness who have not yet come on camera, also our British sources on the ground that night. Tomorrow, more of our exclusive interview, including the hunt for those responsible for the hunt or lack thereof.
