BENGHAZI: New Email – Spec Forces Spinning Up Were Turned Back: Rescue Interrupted!

According to the video below [Sharyl Attkisson of Full Measure], the following Benghazi-related email has become available for the first time in 3three years. A Special Forces Team in the air, on the way to Benghazi was turned back after failing to be granted the Commander in Chief’s [Barack Obama] approval  to cross into Libya.

SUBJECT: LIBYA

ALL EMPHASIS BELOW IS MINE.

STATE COLLEAGUES:

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. They include a SOF [Special Operaations Forces] element that was in Croatia (which can fly to Suda Bay, Crete), and a Marine FAST team out of Roda, Spain.

Assuming Principals agree to deploy these elements we will ask state to secure the approval from host nation. Please advise how you wish to convey that approval to us. Burni/Nides/Sherman to  Miller/Winnererfeld would be my recommendation.

Eight weeks before election day: White House photos taken on the night of September 11, 2012 are not available to the public. Ret. Army Green Beret Colonel Andrew Wood says the individuals being “spun up” were in the air and on their way, but were not allowed over the Libyan border until higher up [specifically the Commander in Chief Obama] gave the approval. They were not allowed to cross into Libya as no approval was given.

Col Woods says he has a high degree of confidence that Spec Forces were on their way but did not receive approval.

 The width and depth of the lies and deception is deep and wide. We can only hope  they receive retribution in the full measure they deserve.

Five hours later when the alarm bell sounded in Benghazi I think the decision not to react amy have been made early on in the day. , ~ Col Wood

    Ah…Wendy Sherman. The woman that negotiated the North Korea nuke deal and the horrific Iranian nuke deal. Amazing how this same woman spilled the beans on Hillary and how she communicated through a non governmental blackberry. Drip by drip we get smidgens of truth. “Never put anything in writing” comes to mind referring to Clinton’s climate goddess Carol Browner. This regime (many Clinton players) operates under the radar and away from transparency ..to do their dirty deeds.

    and of course, NO INDICTMENT..

    no one dare indict a Clinton.. the only place in history
    they may be remembered is – in the Clinton’s Legacy
    files under “mysterious deaths”..

    sigh,

    unfortunately, i can envision the blackmail
    tug of wars that goes on inside the beltway..

  • That whole administration should be arrested for treason.

    Pretty obvious that Obama and or H Clinton refused permission to enter Libya. They were stood down.
