Weekend Edition: Benghazi, the Truth and Men of Honor

par 1Among the many REAL issues that we, as Conservatives, Tea Publicans and Republicans must put front and center for the 2014 midterm elections, right along with Obamacare, the IRS targeting, the NSA spying, our economy and the most disastrous foreign policy imaginable..is Benghazi.

The interview Bret Baier of Fox News did with three of the CIA ops who were ON THE GROUND…IN BENGHAZI that night, September 11th, 2012, was THE most telling of any interview done so far.

Critics will gnash their teeth…claiming that all they’re trying to do is sell a book. Yes, there is a book, “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” written by Mitchell Zuckoff along with the security team from Benghazi but these three…Kris (“Tanto”) Paronto,  Mark (“Oz”) Geist, and John (“Tig”) Tiegen have a lot more to lose than to gain by speaking up.

Under this Obama regime, they’re through. They’re done in the intel community because the truth of what happened there doesn’t match the Obama fabrication of those events.

Not even close.

According to Baier’s interview, those three men, on the CIA security detail in Bengahzi were ready, geared up, armed, ready and calling for close air support to go to the compound, just a mile away, within five minutes of the start of the attack.

Not only did that close air support never come but…Tiegen, Paronto and Geist were told to wait.

That’s right…

11 Years Later, Remembrance and Forewarning

11 years ago, we were doing whatever we normally did on a Tuesday morning in September. We were at work or going to work. We were at school or on our way there. At home, maybe in a car, a bus or on a train.

Tens of thousands were on planes or ready to board one.

It was just another Tuesday morning.

Then, it changed.

The World Trade Towers. The Pentagon. A field in rural Pennsylvania.

Everything changed.

Nothing would be quite the same again.

We were saddened, apprehensive, scared and looking for a sign of hope.

In the most abnormal of situations, those were the proper emotions.

We were also shocked, stunned and in disbelief.

We shouldn’t have been. We should have seen it coming. We should have realized we were a target and it wasn’t the first time.

8 years earlier, the World Trade Center had been attacked and that attack, like 9-11, had been at the hands of the same murderous group.

Al Qaeda.

The Kovar Towers? That was al Qaeda too.

The USS Cole?

Al Qaeda.

They had been at war with us for a long time but we were not at war with them. 9-11 was the next step in their escalating reign of terror against the United States and we should have seen it coming. We should have but, we didn’t and we paid a very high price for being asleep.

After 5 years…10…11 years…Are we any more awake than we were on that Tuesday morning in September back in 2001?
