Wasn’t This Supposed to Be About a YouTube Video? Who Spiked Effort to Rescue US Ambassador?

Chicago Daily Observer 29 October 2012 6 Comments

From Pajamas Media

If you don’t get torches-and-pitchforks irate about this, you are not an American:

The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.

There were two AC-130Us deployed to Libya in March as part of Operation Unified Protector.

 

The AC-130U is a very effective third-generation fire-support aircraft, capable of continuous and extremely accurate fire onto multiple targets. It has been used numerous times in Iraq and Afghanistan to save pinned-down allied forces, and has even been credited with the surrender of the Taliban city of Kunduz

** Update

Shocker! Clarence Page doesn’t see much need to look into the murder of the American Ambassador to Libya.  You would have to be some kind of racist to think otherwise.

    Good Old Clarence Page told us all to move it along! Nothing to see here!

    Just like back in 2008, before they cuffed Blago and cemented Tony Rezko for good and made JJJ go to Mayo. What’s 15′ between friends? What’s the going rate for a Senate Seat? How’s Roland? What’s High Speed Quinn up to these days?

    Libya? Distraction.

    The main stream media is trying to spin this into a “political ploy by the Republicans”…As long as Obama is in office their main objective will not be to report the news but to serve and protect Obama and his administration…They are as bad if not worse than he is…

    Sure they did. He lied about bombing Afghanistan. He lied to lead us into a war with the Serbs. What on earth are you talking about?

    Hey, Michael R, sorry to have to break the news to you, pal, but Bill Clinton and many other people in his administration spent eight years prior to 2001 deliberately weakening our military and intelligence capabilities–and then, on September 11, almost 3,000 people died!
