Obama refuses to answer question re Benghazi, and flip flopping his story. "We didn't know, It was a protest to that movie., I said from the beginning it was a Terrorist attack" Al Qaeda said it was their attack 2 hours after it happened.Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were part of a Global Response Staff or GRS that provides security to CIA case officers and provides countersurveillance and surveillance protection. They were killed by a mortar shell at 4 a.m. Libyan time, nearly seven hours after the attack on the Consulate began — a window that represented more than enough time for the U.S. military to send back-up from nearby bases in Europe, according to sources familiar with Special Operations. Four mortars were fired at the annex. The first one struck outside the annex. Three more hit the annex.
New Explosive Benghazi Allegations: CIA Operators Told to ‘Stand Down’ During Attack As 3 Urgent Requests for Military Back-Up Were Denied.“Joe Biden to Father of Former Navy SEAL Killed in Benghazi:‘Did Your Son Always Have Balls the Size of Cue Balls?’”
Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire….The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.
At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. 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.

Sources: WABC, Fox News, The Blaze, CNN.....etc
Sources on the ground report that four (4) mortar rounds were fired, one hit outside the building the other three landed on the building.

According to the map of Benghazi and satellite option the US consulate compound did have a bit of a defined perimeter, the annex is not identified on the map but in the ground level photos making their way around the worlds news agencies the building is in a neighborhood and surrounded closely by other buildings.

Father of Slain SEAL: Who Made the Decision Not to Save My Son?

Woods made clear that he isn't "mad," but that he wants to the "truth" to be told because he feels " abandoned."

Woods says he was told by military officials that the military could have "come above [the area] and completely carpeted area," and therefore saved the officials in Benghazi, Libya. But that someone gave the command for the American military not to save the lives of the Americans under attack.

"When I heard, you know, that there's a very good chance that the White House as well as other members of the military knew what was going on and obviously someone had to say, don't go rescue them. Because every person in the military--their first response [would be], we're going to go rescue them. We need to find out who it was that gave that command--do not rescue them."

Obama's "role in the final event was miniscule at best", and it sure didn't help that they had to drag him off a golf course and give him a jacket for the photo-op.
Wonder if he wore the same jacket while they were watching Americans die in Benghazi?
I mean according to the experts here on Topix, they didn't have a plan for anything else, right?

Obama avoids question on whether Americans in Libya were denied requests for help

Obama has declined to answer directly whether a CIA annex was denied urgent requests for military assistance during the deadly attacks last month on U.S. outposts in Libya.

“The election has nothing to do with the four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened,” the president said first in a TV interview with an NBC affiliate in Colorado.

When asked again, Obama said,“The minute I found out what was going on, I gave three very clear directives -- Number 1, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to,” the president said in a TV interviews with an NBC affiliate in Colorado.

*****

What a lying POS. Will this joke of a president EVER take responsibility for ANYTHING? Unbelievable.

Trump knew Obama wasn't going to take the bait on this.

Trump gave Obama an opportunity to redistribute The Donald's wealth for a worthy cause.

Trump pulled this ploy knowing the intended outcome.

Whether or not Trump's strategy succeeded ...

But, he did prove and reinforce the question:

-Why are Obama's College Transcrips and Passport information still sealed. 2M is alot of $$$. People don't pay out that kind of $$$ to keep concealed, that if revealed, would be detrimental.

-Trump's just keeping this issue in the forefront.

-While at the same time toying with Obama.
Trump punked Obama. And punking is Trump's forte.

Course, one can also argue, why should Obama bite the dangling carrot? And, the implications of Trump's move are lost on Obama. Alot of "things" are lost on Obama. He's not that bright. And as he's exhibited, All That Glitters Is Not Gold.

Probably has alot of "C's" in those College Transcripts.
And a few "F's" and Incompletes wouldn't be surprising for the boy wonder whacked out on weed and coke throughout his College years. Obama's been given a pass for poor performance throughout his entire life. And since he's been manufactured, put together like some Dummy Corporation from the jump, poor performance and failure will always enshroud him. The boy "don't" scan.

Your civil and well-thoughtout response is very much appreciated.
However, it's really very simple. Yes, the global economy is also shaky but America has always led the way as being a stabilizing economic force.
We either choose more of the same with Congress never finding any common ground, cross our fingers and hope for the best - or we choose someone who will enact long overdue major reforms and who will work with both sides to find common ground, cross our fingers and hope for the best.
I'm going with the latter. It's a no-brainer to me. But, then again, apparently some disagree.
We need a Congress that will be willing to work with President Obama, whom we know to be moderate and to have guided our economy into recovery. With a reasonable Congress, one not dedicated to insuring his failure by being obstructionistic, President Obama will be able to enact necessary reforms. His foreign police has restored confidence in America’s position of leadership in the international community.

Most of all, we need to continue President Obama’s legacy of integrity.

You can see that venture capitalists Rick Scott and Rick Snyder have had "limited success", to put it kindly. The economists have dissected the Romney/Ryan plan as being extremely risky, and his healthcare plan heads for insolvency in short order. He has changed his positions numerous times over his political career. His foreign policy stance might be "me too", his defense(?) stance is to increase the budget on the largest military in the world - much of which is bound to end up with contractors. Do you really want another round of trickle down economics, reductions of benefits and an increase in federal spending? There's an ancient Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times."
I'm not impressed with many of the things Obama has and has not accomplished, and Congress is... disgusting, but there's another old saying - "better the devil you know". I don't care about school records - I'd much rather know someone's financial records and that they aren't eager for the Tribulation.

-
Barrack Hussein Obama's Sealed Medical, College Transcripts, Indonesia Grade School, and College Records do include a type of Birth Certificate Record or Affirmative Action and are "MOST" relevant proving the outsourced, Kenyan obama usurper to the office of President...
-
The cost of an outsourced Barack Hussein Obama not releasing his hidden records and college transcripts are very clear. Therefore an usurper obama has calculated there are higher costs releasing any of his sealed records, destroying his career....

$5 Million dollars to a charity of obama's choice or a rape crisis center, if obama releases his sealed records..

Military officials told Woods senior??? Unnamed military officials no doubt.

Listen up chump__Ty Woods was not active military, nor was Doherty or any of the others stationed at the, cough, annex. While Smith was officially employed by the State Dept. Woods, Doherty and the others weren't and at this time it's not known for sure exactly where their significant checks were coming from.

The US Military had no authority to respond to the Benghazi attack with force without the permission of the Libyan government.

The Obama administration now agrees with… JFK September, 18, 1963 speech about” Tax Cuts!!”
A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced federal budget. Every taxpayer and his family will have more money left over after taxes for a new car, a new home, new conveniences, education and investment. Every businessman can keep a higher percentage of his profits in his cash register or put it to work expanding or improving his business, and as the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues.”

When Sensata employees heard Romney on the campaign trail, they somehow got the idea that he opposes sending our jobs to China just because he says that he opposes sending our jobs to China. So the Sensata workers asked him to go to Freeport/Bainport to help them.

Has anyone heard if Romney has stepped in to help them yet?
