But the Dear Leader loving U.S. Media is furiously working to beat back the fire…
Dionysius (II) was a fourth century B.C. tyrant of Syracuse, a city in Magna Graecia, the Greek area of southern Italy.
To all appearances Dionysius was very rich and comfortable, with all the luxuries money could buy, tasteful clothing and jewelry, and delectable food.
He even had court flatterers (adsentatores) to inflate his ego.
One of these ingratiators was the court sycophant, Damocles. Damocles used to make comments to the king about his wealth and luxurious life.
One day when Damocles complimented the tyrant on his abundance and power, Dionysius turned to Damocles and said, “If you think I’m so lucky, how would you like to try out my life?”
Damocles readily agreed, and so Dionysius ordered everything to be prepared for Damocles to experience what life as Dionysius was like. Damocles was enjoying himself immensely…
…. until he noticed a sharp sword hovering over his head, that was suspended from the ceiling by a horse hair. This, the tyrant explained to Damocles, was what life as ruler was really like.
As the truth is leaking out, the flames of Benghazi are licking toward the horse hair holding up the blood stained swords over the head of President Obama.
Those of you who are following this story intently know now why the obfuscation and distraction was needed. It was President Obama who maintained operational control during the attack at the Benghazi Embassy Consulate and CIA Annex.
When House Intelligence Committee member Jason Chaffetz went to Libya he was accompanied by Africom Commander General Carter Ham. Four Star General Ham is the commander of the entire African Theater. Anything involving the U.S. military, or U.S. military operations in Libya falls under his command. The only person higher than him for incidences within that field of operations is the Commander In Chief – President Obama.
When Jason Chaffetz specifically asked General Ham if he had a ready force who could have responded to the event General Ham replied:
“Yes, however, we were not asked to”…
Again yesterday, 10/29, Jason Chaffetz relayed the same outline:
Understand the significance of this statement. If Africom commander General Ham was “not asked to”, it can only mean one thing. There is only one person higher than him in the “African Continent Theater” operational chain of command.
That person is President Obama.
This response by General Ham means the White House was in control of the command response. If the White House WERE NOT, or COULD NOT, take the command response control authority, for whatever reason, then General Ham would be the one in charge. He wasn’t.
All decisions not to send help to both the Consulate and the Annex compound were directly from the White House, and more specifically the Commander In Chief, President Obama.
That is why they said it was a mob action because of a protest. That is why they blamed the movie. It was not just the activity within the CIA compound that held the risk of sunlight to the administration – it was the specific and intentional decision by the White House NOT TO HELP the people under attack.
Why? Because they erroneously attached the Terrorist Attack action in Benghazi to the Cairo Egypt protest. The Cairo, Egypt Embassy assault was an al-Qaeda hijacked protest with emotion flamed by salafists using the Al Faroq TV station message about a Muhammed movie two days earlier on 9/9/12.
The people within the situation room assessing the Libyan Consulate attack, and the attack on the CIA Annex made the flawed connection between the two events. Then, when confronted “in real-time” with the action on the ground – and calls for help, including cries to engage air support, President Obama said no.
He was wrong.
