Something That Needs To Be Hammered Home…

Again and again and again and again and again…

Because you can’t stop the signal.

From yet another excellent article on the shameful spectacle of Democrat Socialist scum walking out the room when testimony from our Benghazi heroes’ families was to be heard. It’s all worth reading, but this one in particular bears repeating, re: “why was no rescue attempt launched?” and one of the million lies spewed forth by the Imam-in-Chief Obama’s Junta, which is “it was unpossible!”

Charles Woods, who has given similar testimony, asked a question we also have asked. Noting how he was told of a conversation by Gen. Carter Ham that assets were available to use for a rescue, but that he was not allowed to deploy those assets, Woods wondered: Why not?

As we have reported, Ham, then head of U.S. Africa Command, was relieved of his post after only a year and a half on the job. According to James S. Robbins in the Washington Times, Ham got the same emails about the terrorist attack by the al-Qaida-linked Ansar al-Sharia and immediately began organizing a rescue attempt.

Ham is said to have told the Pentagon he had a rapid response team ready, but was told to stand down. Ham then reportedly said he was going to send help anyway and was promptly relieved of his command.

Emphasis ours.

Yes, you read that right. The commander in the theater had the assets and was going to use them no matter what the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht said. And, in the grand tradition of the Democrat National Socialists’ ideological predecessor, the offending commander was promptly relieved of his command.

And four Americans were murdered as a result while Reichsführer Ogabe went back to sleep, dreaming of his upcoming fundraiser with Jay-Z and perhaps a game of golf or two.

He had an election coming up, after all, so what difference, at that point, did it make if a few Americans got needlessly slaughtered to further his personal ambitions?

Thatisall.

There ain’t going to be much of America left after the next three years. The RINOs are already sniveling that ObongoCare is too far down the road to stop.

We’re fucked and it’s a toss up whether or not we can overcome this.

It’s a shame Ham didn’t refuse to relinquish command and then have his replacement arrested. I’ll bet that’s an order his troops would have been happy to obey.

Usually the “Constituent Only” e-mail filter can be overcome by simply putting in the zipcode of one of the home state offices of the congressmaledictor.. All they can do is ignore you. Will they put you on other haters lists? If you ever contributed to a conservative cause or candidate, Huffington Post has probably put an aerial photo map to… Read more »

I know this is probably super-grade extra thick tinfoil, but…

I’ve wondered if what Benghazi was really about was getting rid of Gen. Ham.

Response to Jon (et al) Also a new point *** More likely just freezing under stress and usual indecisiveness plus cowardice at anything muslim. Bubbazipper tried to duck the Paula Jones lawsuit by saying he was as Commander-in-Chief like any active duty service member and thus unsueable in some circumstances. Did not work. If it had, and had established the… Read more »
