Benghazi Timeline & Facts As We Now Know Them

President Obama and Hillary Clinton

We left our men behind, of that we are certain. We know that our administration watched the terror attack unfold throughout the night. They watched in real time via live feed as our men died. They did nothing.

The Ambassador and Sean Smith begged for help the night of the attack. The back story is that the consulate was left with little security. The consulate officials asked for more security prior to 9/11 and were given less.

When the consulate officials called for help, Tyrone Woods and two others, who were told to stand down, disobeyed orders and went to their rescue. One unconfirmed report indicated that Ty Woods didn’t know how anyone could listen to pleas for help and not help.

During the rescue attempt of as many as 30 people, Ty Woods and the other men lost track of Ambassador Stevens and Sean Smith.

The employees were taken to the safe house and then the airport. They owe their lives to these courageous men.

They returned to look for the Ambassador and Sean Smith. They could not find Ambassador Stevens. Sean Smith was already dead. They took Sean Smith’s body with them back to the safe house.

Glen Doherty, who had been flown in by this time, joined Ty Woods. They fought gallantly together on the roof of the safe house. They held off the attackers for almost seven hours. They never received backup as they allegedly requested.

Glen Doherty was felled by a direct hit of a mortar. Ty Woods died on his machine gun, still fighting to the death. They had fought for hours and there was time to save them. Their weapons were caked in blood, indicating that they fought while wounded.

Both men had lasers on the roof of the safe house pointing at the attackers. One rescue force could in all likelihood have taken out the attackers using the lasers as guidance.

There were three requests for help in total and all three requests were denied. Both the military and the CIA have said they did not deny help. If that is true, that leaves the White House, the State Department, and the Secretary of Defense.

Leon Panetta, the Secretary of Defense, is a bureaucrat who listened to ongoing phone communications and live feed of the attack in Benghazi. He claims he never received a request for help.

Do you know where our president was at this time, according to unnamed sources? He was in the White House situation room watching them die. National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told Yahoo News by email that the president did not deny them help. “Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi,” Vietor said.

The President was asked the question during an interview by an NBC affiliate. His answer to their being denied help was evasive. He then went on to his election talking points, really heartwarming.

Where was Hillary Clinton during this?

Who denied help? We need more information but in the absence of any information from Obama, we will be left to fill in the blanks.

In the end, President Obama is responsible.

Their deaths did not slow Obama’s flight to Vegas the next day for his fundraiser. He is a disgrace! Benghazi explains his odd behavior the night of the first debate.

The back story to all this is that Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi on 9/11 for a series of meetings, one was with the Turkish Ambassador. It is now believed that Ambassador Stevens was there, risking his life, to try and stop the flow of arms from Benghazi to Syria via Turkey. The arms in question are ending up in the hands of al Qaeda in Syria. There was a ship in port that week which was believed to have held arms, arms that were eventually headed for Syria’s al Qaeda forces.

The Obama administration is not talking about what could be a Syrian Fast & Furious, which has a concerning back story:

We know that money we are giving our “allies” (Saudi Arabia for one) is going towards weapons being shipped to al Qaeda in Syria.

We have armed Benghazi rebels, many of whom were al Qaeda, and the weapons are being used for slaughter.

We did not secure Gaddafi’s weapons when we conducted our illegal war in Libya. Many of those weapons are now going to Syria, according to some reports.

Gaddafi had a massive arsenal of weapons, including chemical weapons, that were endangered by war but there seems to have been no pre-planning by our administration on how to secure the weapons because, in the end, an unknown number of weapons fell into the hands of al Qaeda.

In early September, 2011, Al-Qaeda’s north African branch had acquired a stockpile of weapons in Libya, including surface-to-air missiles that are threatening air travel, according to the EU’s counter-terrorism coordinator, Gilles de Kerchove.

Al Qaeda members of the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) have “gained access to weapons, either small arms or machine-guns, or certain surface-to-air missiles which are extremely dangerous because they pose a risk to flights over the territory,” said Gilles.

The Islamic Maghreb, AQIM, originated as an armed Islamist resistance movement to the secular Algerian government. It now operates mainly in Algeria, Mauritania, Mali and Niger, where it has attacked military targets and taken civilian hostages, particularly Europeans, some of whom it has killed.

Confirming the seizure of weapons was Chad’s President, Idriss Deby Itno, who told the African weekly Jeune Afrique in an interview that he was “100 per cent sure” of his assertion.

“The Islamists of al-Qaeda took advantage of the pillaging of arsenals in the rebel zone to acquire arms, including surface-to-air missiles, which were then smuggled into their sanctuaries in Tenere,” a desert region of the Sahara that stretches from northeast Niger to western Chad, Deby said in the interview.

“This is very serious. AQIM is becoming a genuine army, the best equipped in the region,” he said.

His claim was echoed by officials in other countries in the region who said that they were worried that al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) might have acquired “heavy weapons,” thanks to the Libyan insurrection.

Congressman Chaffetz is trying to get information from the Obama administration. Even as Obama claims he is transparent, Obama refuses to turn over the videos and communications on the night of the attack. The only reason we know anything is because of brave whistle-blowers who are handing information over to the House Committee which is investigating.

Unconfirmed reports indicate that Holder is desperately trying to find out who the whistle-blowers are.

The president will not answer the question of who denied help to our heroes.

The media will not cover the facts in this case – they are Obama’s propaganda machine. We can’t call them lamestream media any longer. They are far more damaging than merely being lame. They are shameful propagandists who are covering up for their leftist president.

It is thanks to Fox News, Bret Baier, Jennifer Griffin and Catherine Herridge that we have obtained this information.
