Americans in Benghazi attack sent distress calls, pleading for their lives

This makes me weep . . . .
Americans trapped in Benghazi that awful night of Sept. 11, 2012, were pleading for their lives — for someone to rescue them.
But their Commander In Chief was thousands of miles away that night in the White House and disappeared for hours — hours about which the White House refuses to account. Their Commander In Chief was so blasé, he actually went to bed and slept, then hopped onto Air Force One the next day to fly to Las Vegas for a fundraiser.
Later that month, in an interview, their Commander In Chief airily dismissed their deaths as mere “bumps on the road“. Later still, when she was hauled before a Congressional hearing, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, too, dismissed their deaths with the quip, “What does it matter?”

Catherine Herridge reports for Fox News, Nov. 20, 2013:
State Department employees at the Benghazi compound knew they were in a death trap and made a series of radio distress calls to the CIA annex during the terror assault last year, according to congressional sources familiar with recent testimony on the attack from five CIA personnel.
Sources told Fox News that the radio calls, which were described in closed testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, were characterized as almost frantic, with State Department employees who knew they could not defend themselves “pleading” for their lives. 
When the CIA team arrived from the annex about a mile away, they found the State Department employees without guns that could adequately protect them; one of the agents was found hiding in the consulate, apparently in a closet. The testimony lends more weight to repeated claims, in the wake of the attack, that the consulate was not adequately protected despite being located in a volatile and violent area prone to attack. 
When the CIA personnel were asked for their reaction to the administration’s initial explanation that an anti-Islam video and a demonstration gone awry were to blame for the attack, Fox News is told they were seething with anger because everything on the ground — from their perspective — showed it was a premeditated attack. 
At least three of the five — who were all in Benghazi — responded to the scene that night. The witnesses testified that five mortars rained down on the annex in less than a minute. They pointed to those details as more evidence of a professionally trained team, describing the attack on the annex as akin to a professional hit on the operation in order to drive it out of Benghazi.
Congressional sources say the testimony seems to further conflict with and undercut the briefing three days after the attack by then-CIA Director David Petraeus, who likened the attack to a flash mob. When pressed on the number and precision of the mortars, Petraeus offered that Benghazi was flooded with mortars, and played down their accuracy by suggesting they could have been fired from the back of a pick-up truck.
When Petraeus appeared on the Hill in November, following his resignation from the CIA over his admitted affair, he tried to claim that he knew it was a terrorist attack all along and insisted that he did not put the emphasis on the anti-Islam film.

Ditto! That was my first thought after I read Dr. Eowyn’s post. But to them, “what does it matter?”

Yes it does make one weep but also they knew who they were working for (Ref: The Ambassador) and wholly supported the scoundrels not realizing they became expendable.

Shouldn’t blame those folk in Benghazi. Left/liberal leadership demands unwarranted trust as the price of admission and scorns it as a “sucker” quality deserving of such expendable treatment at the same time. Think Xerxes in 300…

Sleep with The Devil, The Devil Exacts His Dues…Original comment was meant solely for the State Department Folks that up until their deaths wholly supported President Witch King of Angmar and the other Nazgul for career expediency over moral principle and any sort of code of ethics. God Bless the Military Victims of President Witch King of Angmar and the other Nazgul

Those long-time readers here know full well my extreme loathing of Hilary witch-bitch and her vile consort. Unfortunately, she’s the most likely next PoS Pres after our current monster. TPTB and the money powers have groomed her for years: she’s now the PERFECT Universal Whore to the Legions of Death & Destruction PUWLDD, acronym pronounced ‘pull-it’.
Let me know if I haven’t made myself clear enough and I’ll arrange to extend this rant to BP 180 over 120….

No matter what these liberal socialist liars say, it was put right murder, and hillary, obama and the rest of these terroriot lovers have the blood of Americans on their hands. They should all be tried for treason, but instead they are terrorizing the survivors. The pos should have to be accountable as to where he was while our embassy was under attack. He should have been impeached. This whole ordeal stinks of a setup and whoever gave the stand down order when help was not that far away as they let on, should stand a military trial and be… Read more »

There will come a day when these traitors will stand in judgment before the lord and I believe he will allow them the same mercy they showed our heroes in Benghazi.

But, WildBill…will they stand in judgment before their FELLOW AMERICANS ever? God will have His way with them at some point. We don’t have a dog in THAT fight. It’s a “given.” But— The health of this country demands that Hillary, Obama, et al, stand before the American people and be judged for what they did….or did NOT do when called upon by their oaths of office to defend our sovereign territory (remember….the ground upon which those slaughtered Americans stood was legally AMERICAN SOIL—-& WHAT did Obama do? NOTHING! Gag the survivors so he could be re-elected!). I, for one,… Read more »

CalGirl, I’m with you. It is important for our Country that they are judged now. There has to be consequences for these actions and I believe there will be. Keep pounding the drum!

Every 9/11 the POTUS in office knows the terror threat is higher than other days. Why did Obama disappear that day? Why the hell wasn’t he at the White House prepared for action? I’m with Glen Beck, he had knowledge of this attack and it was done to cover up gun running.
