BENGHAZI ALERT: Syrian Sideshow Hides New FOIA Report – Obama White House Let Them Die

by  on September 1, 2013 with 12 Comments in News

Buried beneath the Syrian crisis coverage, the Mainstream Media ignores a shocking FOIA report that states conclusively that the United States had trained resources on hand to assist and defend Americans under attack during the Benghazi Massacre – as well as evidence of the White House stonewalling CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson.  The fact that the Obama White House “let them die” leads to the logical assumption then, that it in fact “wanted them dead.”

(…. there were two separate resources available the night of the attack but neither were activated to save our personnel nor were they used to secure the crime scene.)

Benghazi FOIA Exclusive Report: “No-notice” U.S. Marine assets never sent to help Americans during Benghazi or to secure crime scene—Syria at stake

Urgent. The road to war with Syria, Russia, Iran and China can be tracked back to the Benghazi attack and cover-up. A Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA) provides more evidence that the Obama administration declined to activate available possible life-saving help in the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty and Sean Smith –and thwarted the FBI investigation thereby aiding the perpetrators escape from justice. There were two U S Marine Corps response options that were never called in or deployed to Benghazi– Marine Corps Embassy Security Group / Marine Security Guard [MCESG/MSG] and Marine Fleet Antiterrorism Security Teams [FAST].

According to The information Paper obtained under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) states:

“The response time to any emergency is predicated by many factors such as time of day, advance notice or no-notice, current activities, and the locations of off-duty members of the detachments. The MSGs [Marine Security Guard] conduct a minimum of two no-notice drills per month, but most detachments conduct more drills than the minimum standard. The MSGs train to respond to protests, mass casualty/bombings, intruders, and fire and bomb threats/searches. This response training is conducted at all hours and usually will include the State Department Regional Security Officer (RSO) or his deputy as well as the MCESG detachment. In terms of FAST … their alert posture is predicated on combatant commander requirements according to threat reporting and assessment. By order of the Secretary of Defense [then Leon Panetta], the dedicated EUCOM FAST Company supports commander US Africa Command for crisis response and contingency situations. An example of this is the FAST Platoon currently deployed as a crisis response force to the US Embassy, Tripoli – it was sourced from the EUCOM FAST Company  LINK


The Wizbang blog reported the findings with the following, which includes the White House completely stonewalling CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson:

FOIA’s Denied

FOIA’s filed by CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson related to Benghazi were denied.  PJ media covered her string of tweets detailing that the FBI told her she cannot have any information – not even a single page. Attkisson also requested photos from the White House of the situation room that night, like the ones taken for the Bin Laden raid. To date, the White House has not responded to that request.  You’d think a big event like that would have been photographed and put in the Situation Room Album.

A different FOIA request brought to light confirmation that there were two separate resources available the night of the attack but neither were activated to save our personnel nor were they used to secure the crime scene.

So the obvious question is why was a FAST platoon deployed to Tripoli, Libya the day after the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi and not sent to Benghazi when the call for help came in or to secure the crime scene and allow the FBI to do their jobs instead of keeping them out for nearly a month compromising and contaminating the evidence?

Ops Team Pulled Out Of Benghazi

We’re just a few weeks from the one year anniversary of the attack and the Obama administration is pulling the plug on the investigation with the withdrawal of the team in Libya.

Question: “Are you going to let these men get away with murder?”

Answer: “Crickets.   LINK
