SEARCH BLOG: OBAMA and MILITARY.
Below are the contents of an email I received from another blogger, Jason, in whose integrity and veracity I have full confidence. However, Jason was forwarding an email he received, so I can only say that the contents appear plausible given the other information available on this subject. If there is even partial truth to the allegations contained therein, it is a damning indictment of a sitting president.
This tragedy regarding Benghazi gets uglier by the hour. There is one thing I can assure you because I’ve been in a similar situation as the Benghazi attack when bullets were fired at my office at a U.S. Embassy. In my case the attacks continued not for 7 hours, as in the case of Benghazi, but for almost 48 hours. What always happens during such an attack is that reporting on the ground from Embassy officials continues with messages being transmitted to Washington DC in what is known as CRITIC format. That is the highest level precedence for any type of official communication from a military or government facility. When an official government officer prepares such a message in CRITIC format it automatically goes to NSOC (National Security Operations Center) at NSA where it then is automatically reviewed and immediately distributed to military command and control centers and senior government watch offices throughout the U.S. government worldwide. First on that CRITIC list for distribution is the White House Operations Center. I generated about 10 to 15 of these critic messages during my 33 year career during world crisis situations. Many senior officers have never even seen a critic message and certainly never generated one. You don’t generate or transmit a CRITIC message lightly. Sending one turns on bells and whistles all over Washington DC and major military command centers around the globe. Generally only the senior officer at a facility is authorized to permit sending such a message. There is no doubt that the Benghazi Consulate must have sent several of these CRITIC messages when they were being overrun by Al Qaeda terrorists on 9/11 2012.
Having said that I think it’s important to understand that there is literally no way the president or vice president of the United States did not know all that was happening in Benghazi, Libya as it was happening. Every aspect of that attack which killed four Americans, including the Ambassador, would have been related to the president in real time. If it was not, then there has been a very serious break down in the way our American government has functioned from the time I began working in 1964 right up to the present. There is no way that the president did not know everything that was going on during this attach. While I now feel reasonable certain that president Obama will lose in the upcoming election, I also feel that there is sufficient evidence to bring serious charges against him, including impeachment for dereliction of duty for not authorizing aid and assistance to the three requests made by the Benghazi Consulate for military support. Again I want to stress that the CRITIC message reporting format has been around since about 1948 following the Bogotazo Affair (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
when a U.S. Secretary of State came under attack in Bogota, Colombia. The reporting of the incident was delayed or inappropriately handled. So during the cold war and presumably right up to the present, the CRITIC reporting procedure worked exceptionally well. A CRITIC message is supposed to reach the White House within two minutes from the time it is first transmitted by the originating officer or Agency. The surest way to be fired from federal government service is not to understand CRITIC reporting procedures or fail to report to provide timely reporting on a CRITIC situation.
So did the president know everything there was to know about the Benghazi attack on 9/11? You can be 100% assured Obama was informed of every single detail in the greatest minutiae. HE KNEW IT ALL and he knew it in real time! He and his administrative staff invented out of whole cloth the notion that this preplanned attack was a popular spontaneous demonstration against a 7-minute anti-Muslim video. The attack began at 9:30 PM at night, never the usual time for a demonstration. The American people were lied to and the print and TV media are not covering this story in order to protect the president. You also know that and so does every other right thinking American.
HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS (Dereliction of duties)
Impeachment in the United States is an expressed power of the legislature that allows for formal charges against a civil officer of government for crimes committed in office. The actual trial on those charges, and subsequent removal of an official on conviction on those charges, is separate from the act of impeachment itself.
Impeachment is analogous to indictment in regular court proceedings, while trial by the other house is analogous to the trial before judge and jury in regular courts. Typically, the lower house of the legislature will impeach the official and the upper house will conduct the trial.
At the federal level, Article II of the United States Constitution (Section 4) states that "The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors." The House of Representatives has the sole power of impeaching, while the United States Senate has the sole power to try all impeachments. The removal of impeached officials is automatic upon conviction in the Senate. In Nixon v. United States (1993), the Supreme Court determined that the federal judiciary cannot review such proceedings.
CIA Diector General Petraeus Throws president Obama Under the Bus
6:05 PM, Oct 26, 2012 • By WILLIAM KRISTOL
Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”
So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No!
It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?
