Obama fires general for wanting to help Americans being attacked in Benghazi

On October 25 2012, defending why the Obama administration did not send help to the besieged U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Obama’s Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta made this interesting statement to Pentagon reporters:

“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place. And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. [Carter] Ham, [Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff] Gen. [Martin] Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”

The first thing to note about what Panetta said is that HE LIED about the administration not having “real-time information about what’s taking place”.

Last Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012, retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said on television that his sources say Barack Obama was in the White House situation room watching the Benghazi attack in real time.

Shaffer said: “This was in the middle of the business day in Washington, so everybody at the White House, CIA, Pentagon, everybody was watching this go down. According to my sources, yes, [Obama] was one of those in the White House Situation Room in real-time watching this. Only he [Obama] could issue a directive to Secretary of Defense Panetta to do something. That’s the only place it could be done.”

The Inquisitr reports that not only did Obama refuse to send help to the Americans being attacked and killed, sources say he actually ordered an AC-130U gunship to stand down. After that, the Commander In Chief went to bed early in order to be ready for his Las Vegas fundraiser the next day.

Despite three urgent requests from the CIA annex, no military backup was sent for the besieged personnel of the consulate. The CIA officially denies that these requests ever took place or that they were turned down.

According to TheBlaze.com, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, the two former Navy SEALS who were among the four Americans murdered in Benghazi, disobeyed orders from superiors to “stand down”. They raced to the main consulate building to help Ambassador Christopher Stevens and others who were under siege.

Pat Dollard of BareNakedIslam writes, Oct. 28, 2012, that he heard that General Carter Ham, head of Africom (U.S. Africa Command), received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the Benghazi attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had the unit ready. Dollard writes:

“General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.”

Gen. Ham’s “second in command” is not named.

I salute you, U.S. Army General Carter Ham!

The United States Africa Command, also known as U.S. AFRICOM, is one of nine Unified Combatant Commands of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). As one of six that are regionally focused, it is devoted solely to Africa. U.S. AFRICOM is responsible to the Secretary of Defense for U.S. military relations with 54 African countries.

The Benghazi attack took place on the night of September 11, 2012. On October 18, 2012, in a DoD news briefing, Leon Panetta announced that Gen. Ham was fired:

“Today I am very pleased to announce that President Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command.”

James S. Robbins of The Washington Times writes that Gen. Ham “is a very well regarded officer who made AFRICOM into a true Combatant Command after the ineffective leadership of his predecessor, General William E. ‘Kip’ Ward.” According to Joint doctrine, “the tour length for combatant commanders and Defense agency directors is three years.” But Gen. Ham had only been in the commander position at AFRICOM for a year and a half and the informal word was that he was scheduled to rotate out in March 2013.

In other words, Obama fired General Carter Ham, a distinguished U.S. Army general and a true patriot.

To Hell with Obama the traitorous POS.

To Hell with the traitorous weaselly Leon Panetta.

To Hell with this entire rotten traitorous administration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this incredible post! I ditto your last three sentences in red! I am so sick of the lies that have been told to the people of America by Obama and his cowardly administration! I hope the American people protest and take issue with the firing of General Ham. I hope that Romney re-instates him when he becomes President of these United States!
    God, please help us!

  2. The masks are almost completely removed from these devils. In 2008 they campaigned as the ultimate good guys. It is now plain for every eye to see that they are the exact opposite.

    Most of us warned our friends profusely four years ago. I pray that enough of them wake up this time around to overwhelm the wave of fraudulent Democrat votes.

  3. I would love to hear from General Ham. We should all pray for his safety as he knows too much.

    • I’m afraid he cannot speak, for many reasons (pension, rank, job, politics, etc). It’s just shameful what is happening with our military.

  4. Impeach and prosecute the POS SOB CIC.

    -Dave

  5. I read about the transfer in the Sunday papers I think but they did not announce why. I am sure none of the media will address the real reason General Ham was transferred. It can’t get more disgusting than this!
    God help us!

  6. Not only does Obama fire Gen. Carter Ham but now Admiral Charles M. Gaouette was fired. See reasons why: http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index1621.htm

    I don’t know what all this means but after giving Iran one of our drones uncontested, today Iran can do this: http://www.debka.com/article/22483/Iran-develops-Ababil-T-–-a-2-000-km-range-stealth-attack-drone

    • Checked out your “whatdoesitmean” link. The term “lunatic fringe” comes to mind.

      • traildustfotm, I did check out other sources on the subject but this one had the best and most complete info on the subject. I am not testy about where the source comes from if it is consistantly correct and God fearing, it works for me. Sorry if you are a doubting Thomas, do your own research. I just wanted to spark interest in the subject. In this case, there were many other articles matching the story as same site as I posted. I don’t usually look at just one site to make a judgement call.

  7. I can’t think of “Any Reason” why “Any President” wouldn’t try to “Save Americans” under foreign attack……………. unless:

  8. General Ham is prohibited from discussing the entire affair apparently because of the terms of his dismissal, so I guess they think they’re slick.
    But if we were serious, we would be jamming the WH switchboard if there is one and the Congressmen’s office telephones and their email sites.
    The blogosphere is jammed with this information and the MSM just keeps on flooding us with the Sandy Hurrican news. We are underwater literally.
    AAAHHHHH! That’s it, isn’t that where the divers are carving pumpkins to look like Barack and Mitt. Is this for real? Can this be happening?
    Why don’t the Generals pay a visit to the Oval Office and make a suggestion that the Obamas can’t refuse. In the meantime, back to sackcloth and ashes and turn the plate over.

  9. I think this is the biggest group of turncoat if there ever were such. These persons served their C-I-C supposedly so l supportedly prized them only to disrespect this man pays them monthly and supports them.

    • Ray, for a self-proclaimed retired Brigadier General of the US Air Force (that’s what you wrote in the slot for a commenter’s URL), you sure can’t write. I can’t decipher your 2nd sentence: “These persons served their C-I-C supposedly so l supportedly prized them only to disrespect this man pays them monthly and supports them.”

      This much I did get from your sentence — you actually think “this man” i.e., Barack Obama, “pay monthly and support” our military.

      NO!!!!!!!

      It’s American taxpayers — the 49% of U.S. adults who actually still pay federal income taxes — who pay BOTH the salaries of our military and the salary of the POS squatting in the White House.

      BOTH the President and the members of the U.S. Armed Forces serve the People and are sworn to protect the Constitution of the United States of America. But you think we’re living on a slave plantation where the President is the master and slaveowner, and the military men and women are HIS servants and slaves? You’re pathetic. And yet you dare call yourself BrigadierGeneralJoesephL.Shaefer, USAF, (Ret.)!

  10. You can look at the new 911 Libya in three ways, the Islamic mafia wanted MANPADS info, or, the party rivals set up an operation to rig BO to lose the election, or, BO and Holder set up the operation to fire generals and replace them with loyal liberal Marxist generals. Gets interesting dosn’t it.

  11. Intelligence – President Obama called off the rescue of ambassador Stevens at the consulate in Libya on September 11th to prevent a war that would cost him the election. That is the conclusion of retired military officers.

  12. “they were just bumps in the road,” says the empty chair obama

  13. Paul, I do NOT believe that for a second! We own Libya because without us and our aide, their rebels would still be fighting that dictator! Bullchit! Keyword is retired. Anyone retired is afraid of losing their retirement and/or neck! Duh. (I never understood playing it safe when one gets old? That is the time for heros since there is nothing to lose by that time in life.)

  14. Would it be “safe” to assume that there were two “variables” that were not expected that 9-11-12 day? Is it perhaps possible that maybe this was going to be a trade? “Chris Stevens” for “The Blind Shiek”? I find it coincidental that we gave the Muslim Brotherhood 1.5 BILLION, then Morsi takes presidency and vows to free the shiek? not good.

  15. The_Truth_Will_set_U_free

    Just to any doubters that this didnt take place. I have personally verified with a friend who is a retired command Sargent major that served with General Ham in recent years and this is exactly what happened.

  16. Edmund H. Reyes, Ph.D.

    This President and his administration are a disgrace. God help this country if he is reelected.

  17. If obama keeps on firing all our generals and admirals, we are eventually gonna have gay privates running the whole military.
