Source: Only President Could Have Made 'Stand Down' Call On Benghazi
A source with intimate information about the events that happened on the ground in Benghazi the night the U.S. Consulate and the CIA annex was attacked by terrorists told Breitbart News that, ultimately, only the President of the United States, or someone acting on his authority, could have prevented Special Forces either on the ground or nearby from helping those Americans who were under deadly assault.

According to the source, when the attack on the Consulate occurred, a specific chain of command to gain verbal permission to move special-forces in must have occurred. SOCAFRICA commander Lieutenant Col. Gibson would have contacted a desk officer at the time, asking for that permission.

That desk officer would have called Marine Corps Col. George Bristol, then in command of Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara. From there, Bristol would have made contact with Rear Admiral Brian Losey, then Commander of Special Operations Command Africa. Losey would have contacted four-star General Carter Ham, commander of U.S. AFRICOM at the time.

“Ham answers directly to the President of the United States,” said the source. It wasn’t a low-level bureaucrat making the call, the source adamantly added.

That call may have been made early in the engagement. Both Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey testified in January that they had no further communication with President Barack Obama after an initial briefing in the early hours of the Benghazi crisis, which continued through the night.

But what about then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?

“I have a hard time thinking it was Hillary alone. Hillary may have tried to circumvent the counterterrorism board and deal with this. I think in order for her to tell General Ham, ‘No, you’re not going to get involved,' she would have had to talk to the president. The president would have had to say, ‘No, take your commands from Hillary.’ He would have had said something, because Ham does not work for the Department of State; he works directly for the president,” the source explained.

State Department employees Mark Thompson, Gregory Hicks, and Eric Nordstrom are expected to be whistleblower witnesses who will reveal information about State’s reaction to the attacks that has not been released previously.

Just one question...would conjugal visits be considered cruel and inhumane to Obama while he serves his third term in prison?

No one will be punished for Benghazi. No one.

A few underlings might resign.

Thats it.

We are not living in an age in where American elite leaders take responsibility for their incompetence and/or dereliction of duty. In fact, with Democrats, derlection of duty seems to be a job requirement.

Period.

I know you are correct, but I like to dream.

King Obummer doesn't have to explain why he killed those people. It was just more convenient to do so.Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

WaterGate : President Richard Nixon

NOT IMPEACHED - Left in Utter Disgrace - Lied his AZZ off

Many = Prison term's / those that didn't escape investigation's.

Their were a Lot of them that claimed plausible deni-abilty - got out from prosecution

Even Nixion / Watergate

Did not get people killed. dIRECTLEY lINKED TO dereliction of responsibility and then deni- ability. Ownership & Accountability

Then the wounded /and maimed : Some still in the hospital !!

Maybe after Bengazie Gate : Others will come forward -- about STUFF

This is about the Strength of Whistle Blower Protection as much as it is about what happened
