Report – Ty Woods: “Where The Fuck Is The Spectre” ?

I’ll quickly look for links to this breaking story but Fox News Coorespondant Jennifer Griffin is now reporting:   “on the ground annex sources are telling her directly” when SEAL’s Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed orders to “stand down” they instead “walked” while under fire to the Consulate compound from the CIA Annex.

They walked there, approximately a half mile, retrieved the consulate employees, and walked them back to the Annex.   Woods and Doherty were not in an armored SUV as previously reported.   They were on Foot and they were taking fire while doing so.

When Woods and Doherty safely secured the 20 to 30 employees back in the annex they took up positions on the roof, and Woods engaged communication traffic proclaiming “Where the fuck is the Spectre“, referencing the AC-130 Gunship he anticipated would be overhead by then.   Obviously it was never sent.

    I thought it was now being reported that Doherty came later from Tripoli??? Did they not go try to help the consulate until after the Tripoli men arrived? I’m confused. How many people did we have and where were they?

    • It appears the response team from Tripoli arrived at the “Annex”…. and were there when they were told to “stand down” and sit tight. Doherty, from the Tripoli team, and Woods from the Annex team appear to have defied orders and went to the consulate anyway. And, according to Jennifer Griffin they did so “ON FOOT”. (((unreal bravery))) That act of valor is sincerely incredible.

        Boy, do I hate people who parse words, so when Panetta said, “We quickly responded, as General Dempsey said, in terms of our deploying forces to the region. We had fast platoons in the region. We had ships that we had deployed off of Libya, and we were prepared to respond to any contingency and certainly had forces in place to do that. But as a basic principle here – 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, General Ham, General Dempsey, and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”, he was referring to the Consulate where they did not have communication with the Consulate.

        After this, there was a lull in the fighting, before the attack on the Annex, so he is just parsing his words, not lying, just not being clear. I don’t curse by I will quote another site, noquaterusa.net, “Damn you Barack Obama. Damn you.”

    I don’t know folks. I have an eerie feeling. If Woods and Doherty were “Ex-SEALS”. then they were not officially under military command (plausible deniability by our administration) similar to our pilots who flew for Air America in the Vietnam war. They would have been independent contractors working covertly for the CIA. I think our despicable administration will ultimately try to claim they were civilians and that the administration was under obligation to ask the Libyan Gov’t for permission to return fire and that permission was not given. I have had personal experience with asking for permission to return fire and having that permission denied (Vietnam, 1969) and the feeling of desertion is beyond belief. That said, remember that POTUS said he didn’t ask or need permission to go into Pakistan after Osama.

      This may be the reason that the Spectre was told to stand down. Is called the “concept of disciplined use of force”, this directive which was establish by Gen. Petraeus while the Centcom commander, and adopted for all armed forces.

      Basically, it states ” Prior to the use of fires, the commander approving the strike must determine that no civilians are present. If unable to assess the risk of civilian presence, fires are prohibited” there are exemptions with regard to protecting our soldiers but, “Subordinate commanders are not authorized to further restrict this guidance without approval’.

      This directive from Aug 2010, was originally directed at only the forces in Afghanistan, but has been adopted throughout. Part of this directive was also the required the partnering of Afghan and our forces, we know how well that has worked out.

      From what we know the mortar station was on the roof of another building, and the Annex was located in a residential area, the directive would have prohibited any action, only as a last resort.

        Petraeus promised to change/modify/clarify the rules of engagement when he replaced McChrystal but then he made them classified. Still included in was: “This directive, as with the other previous version, does not prevent commanders from protecting the lives of their men and women as a matter of self-defense where it is determined no other options are available to effectively counter the threat.”

        The problem is that it would take a commander with some guts to call this what it really was…a terrorist attack by enemy combatants! Technically we are not at war with Libya, but this is “War on Terror”, but Obama prefers “Overseas Contingency Operations”.

        • With all due respect David Petraeus never promised shit he is a good soldier who follows orders and is hated by pantsuits and progs in general because he fights to win and that is why he was pulled from Afghanistan and replaced by the puppet McChrystal. Islam is a nation without borders and a military without uniforms. If a military attacks unarmed diplomats, then no amount of collateral damage is excess. The problem is commanders whose boots are on the ground have their hands tied by a commander in chief who has publicly stated we will never be at war with Islam, but if a choice had to be made he would stand with Islam. Common sense and statistics tell me a “War on Terror” is a war on Islam and the usurper in chief is on their side! “The directive” is not in place to win the war on terror, it’s purpose is to protect Islam. Go back to a previous version, like say the directive used against Japan in WWII, but go in and spray the target with pigs blood so the rest of Islam knows when we come after them next, there will be no martyrdom, no seventy two virgins waiting. Then turn ‘em into a sheet of glass. A lot less citizens would die than died in Japan. WAKE UP AMERICA!

    Elections are serious business and their ramifications reach far beyond the slogans and empty promises which accompany them. We can only hope that the four lives lost in Benghazi will serve to impress upon the American public one very important lesson….the man we elect to be our president must have the credentials to justify our trust. Community organizers need not apply.

      THIS WAS PUBLISHED IN HOTAIR.COM BACK ON 9/28. THE ARTICLE RIASES SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT THE EVACUATION FROM THE ANNEX/SAFE HOUSE.
      SAYS 37 EVACUATED, BUT MORE THAN A DOZEN WERE INJURED…..?

      ALSO, TONIGHT ON FOX NEWS SPECIAL REPORT THEY SAID NOT EVERYONE LEFT ON THE SAME PLANE…BUT ON TWO SEPARATE PLANES. DID YOU HEAR THAT BEFORE NOW. WHERE ARE THESE PEOPLE. WHO ELSE WAS INJURED?

      The Rest of the Story should not be allowed to die.

      When the consulate in Benghazi came under attack, at least 37 U.S./Libyan diplomatic personnel managed to escape in the dark of night to a supposedly secret “safe house,” a second location where, according to most reports, they wondered what had happened to their missing ambassador and awaited rescue. U.S. and Libyan authorities were aware of their plight (as was al-Qaeda, but read on).
      THIS CAME FROM AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED ON HOTAIR.COMD
      A plan was made and the Libyans dispatched a brigade known as the Libyan Shield under Captain Fathi al-Obeidi to meet an 8-man squad of Marines, hastily dispatched from Tripoli, at the Benghazi airport. Together they proceeded to the secret location where they immediately came under a planned and waiting mortar attack. One Marine was thrown off a rooftop by mortar fire, two others wounded. Two of the 37 diplomatic personnel were killed and others wounded as the Marines and Libyan Shield Brigade attempted to load the diplomats onto too few trucks while under fire (they were prepared to evacuate only 10 people, not 3 times that number), and call in other brigades with more trucks. As the sun rose, they were able to disengage from the attackers (almost certainly al-Qaeda) and convoy everyone back to Benghazi airport, where transports waited to take off with– not everyone, but the “first group of Americans.”

      This story was reported by Reuters Middle East stringer Hadeel Al Shalchi (female, Canadian, based in Tripoli, Libya), and– from the first-hand details provided in the story– is almost certainly the eye-witness account of Captain al-Obeidi. She corroborates his story with that of a Libyan official, Deputy Interior Minister Wanis al-Sharif:

      “A team of commandos arrived by air and went to a farm which we thought was a secret location. Once they got there, they came under heavy fire from heavy machineguns, rocket-propelled grenades and automatic rifles, which resulted in the death of two others.”

      He estimated that a dozen or more Americans were hurt.

      This is a real story. Journalist Hadeel Al Shalchi is a real journalist, who has reported for Reuters from Egypt during the Arab Spring uprising, and from Syria from the onset of its civil war. And yet, after this story was reported, September 12, nothing more was told. Its as if the Marines and the 37 evacuated diplomatic personnel flew off from Benghazi airport and straight into the Bermuda Triangle. Ms. Shalchi has since returned to Canada for a break (her last tweet was the depressed turn-out of Michigan-area Muslim voters for Obama this year). She’s in no position to follow up on this story anyway. Only the Marines know what happened to the Marines, only the State Department knows what it did with the 37 evacuees.

      So… media… anyone… what did happen to them?

    “Two of those Americans were ex-Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty, who initially were identified publicly as State Department contractors. But on Thursday, the intelligence officials said they were CIA contractors. Previously the agency had asked The Associated Press and other news organizations to avoid linking the men to the CIA because the officials claimed that doing so would endanger the lives of other security contractors working for other agencies around the world.

    U.S. officials are using the details to rebut some news reports that said the CIA told its personnel to “stand down” rather than go to the consulate to help repel the attackers. Fox News reported that when CIA officers at the annex called higher-ups to tell them the consulate was under fire, they were twice told to “stand down.” The CIA publicly denied the report, laying out a timeline that showed CIA security officers left their annex and headed to the consulate less than 25 minutes after receiving the first call for help.”

    My father spent three years fighting the Nazis in Europe, Sicily to Munich/Dachau, and then in Korea for a year and a half. He had kept up thoroughly with military/political events until he did recently. In our discussions, he could not understand the trend to retreat from action when action was needed to defend American interests overseas. The men and women in the field have not lost the backbone to act, but it appears that some of our leaders have. Carter pulled back on orders to take our Embassy people back when our military was ready to go and just a few minutes away. At least he was worried about them. Now we have a President that is worse — he puts his own political aspirations ahead of the people in the field, and his subordinates who should be authorized to take actions to support our people apparently have their hands tied or are too afraid to act that our people are sacrificed. if alive, my Dad, who put his life on the line many times, would be absolutely horrified — he would be totally unable to understand it.

Like yours, my father fought his way across Europe, was captured during the Battle of the Bulge, and was imprisoned for more than four months prior to his liberation. If he were still with us, I believe he would be worse than “horrified” by what the country has become, and especially by the behavior of its leaders. In this regard, and as much as I miss him, I’m actually relieved that he’s not here now, having to watch it unfold. At any rate, I relate to your feelings and I thank you for sharing them. Keep the faith. Tuesday is our chance to do something about it.

      I think we’ve always been a rather peace loving nation. We were late and reluctant to enter WWII. Churchill had the vision, less so for FDR. Eventually we entered and the greatest generation pulled it off and gave us what we have today.
      Hitler verbalized and wrote about just what he planned to do. Iran, Al Qaeda and other are pretty clear now. “Wipe Israel off the map, destroy us…” The World Trade Center attack in ’93 was a clear warning and look what happened in 01.
      Isolationism and Ignoring our enemies is not a good plan….. in my opinion.
