Pentagon Didn’t Know Benghazi Mission Existed! Gen Carter Ham Didn’t Know CIA Annex Existed!

Good grief! We have a Special Mission Compound located in one of the most dangerous places on earth, inhabited with U.S. diplomats, and the Pentagon didn’t know it existed? Further, General Carter Ham was not aware that there was a CIA annex in Benghazi? This report cites the information coming from the Senate Benghazi report released last week. [All emphasis is mine.]

Page 28 of the 85-page report states:

“With respect to the role of DoD and AFRICOM in emergency evacuations and rescue operations in Benghazi, the Committee received conflicting information on the extent of the awareness within DoD of the Benghazi

Annex. According to U.S. AFRICOM, neither the command nor its Commander were aware of an annex in Benghazi, Libya.

“However, it is the Committee’s understanding that other DoD personnel were aware of the Benghazi Annex.”

Page 77 of the report further divulges that Gen. Carter Ham, then-commander of U.S. Africa Command, “was not even aware there was a CIA annex in Benghazi at the time of the attacks.”

Continued the Senate report: “We are puzzled as to how the military leadership expected to effectively respond and rescue Americans in the event of an emergency when it did not even know of the existence of one of the U.S. facilities.” Source: World Net Daily

This gives further speculation to a Fast-and-Furious-type gun-running operation from the U.S. inside Libya from Benghazi, to Syrian rebels, which the administration has denied.

  • Unbe-freaking-lievable! We put a diplomatic mission in one of the world’s hotspots and there is absolutely no military contingency to come to their aid if they are attacked, because the military hasn’t been informed that they are even there!

    The Obama administration makes the Keystone Kops look like Seal Team Six.

    • proof, I didn’t add this, but should have:

      “On the night of the attack, Ham was placed in charge of the C-110, a 40-man Special Ops force maintained for rapid response to emergencies. The force was trained for deployment for events like the Benghazi attack. Command was transferred from the military’s European command to Ham in the middle of the attack.

      Ultimately, the C-110, which had reportedly been training in Croatia during the attack, was not deployed to respond in Benghazi. Instead it was ordered to return to its forward operating base in Italy.”

      This whole things blows my mind. No wonder Ham was so silent. And why did it take WND to discover these pages?

  • This is so outrageous. It’s the reign of the political commissars. Who knew in the Pentagon? The political appointees. And it was all hush-hush because it was Iran-Contra Redux, totally illegal and extremely dangerous, pushing an already tense situation into pure anarchy. Weapons-running through Turkey to one set of sectarians in Syria while sitting in the midst of madmen and extremists and those who might well have had a problem with that — it had to be kept quiet, no need for another Congressional hearing. And when things went south, the silence was deafening. It was gross negligence from the top down and Hillary Clinton owns as much of it if not more than Obama. I’ll bet you she now tries to run by saying all along she opposed whatever Obama ended up doing. No paper-trail of course.

    You don’t inform the Pentagon when guns are being illegally funneled to Syrian rebels.
