TreeHouse Benghazi Reporting Proven Correct Again – Documents Show Top Defense Officials Briefed Obama Minutes After Assault On Benghazi Began It Was A “Terrorist Attack,” Not A Video Or Protest…

Armed Services Chairman Howard “Buck” McKeon, (R-CA) has downloaded pdf’s of testimony from last June. They are available HERE and we are in the process of going through line by-painstaking line. Why? Because since late September 2012 we have found a litany of dots which add up to a very specific pattern – and tell a very specific story. We feel, and this current new release confirms, the thread to pull this cover shroud apart is tied to AFRICOM – General Carter Ham.

Here is James Rosen’s initial take on his review, and at the bottom we’ll expand on what we feel is going to come to light.

barack-obama-denis-mcdonough-2008- the fixerWASHINGTON DC (VIA JAMES ROSEN) Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation’s top civilian and uniformed defense officials — headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama — were informed that the event was a “terrorist attack,” declassified documents show. The new evidence raises the question of why the top military men, one of whom was a member of the president’s Cabinet, allowed him and other senior Obama administration officials to press a false narrative of the Benghazi attacks for two weeks afterward.

Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time was head of AFRICOM, the Defense Department combatant command with jurisdiction over Libya, told the House in classified testimony last year that it was him who broke the news about the unfolding situation in Benghazi to then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The tense briefing — in which it was already known that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens had been targeted and had gone missing — occurred just before the two senior officials departed the Pentagon for their session with the commander in chief.

According to declassified testimony obtained by Fox News, Ham — who was working out of his Pentagon office on the afternoon of Sept. 11 — said he learned about the assault on the consulate compound within 15 minutes of its commencement, at 9:42 p.m. Libya time, through a call he received from the AFRICOM Command Center.

“My first call was to General Dempsey, General Dempsey’s office, to say, ‘Hey, I am headed down the hall. I need to see him right away,'” Ham told lawmakers on the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation on June 26 of last year. “I told him what I knew. We immediately walked upstairs to meet with Secretary Panetta.”

Ham’s account of that fateful day was included in some 450 pages of testimony  [<–embed by author /SD] given by senior Pentagon officials in classified, closed-door hearings conducted last year by the Armed Services subcommittee. The testimony, given under “Top Secret” clearance and only declassified this month, presents a rare glimpse into how information during a crisis travels at the top echelons of America’s national security apparatus, all the way up to the president.

Also among those whose secret testimony was declassified was Dempsey, the first person Ham briefed about Benghazi. Ham told lawmakers he considered it a fortuitous “happenstance” that he was able to rope Dempsey and Panetta into one meeting, so that, as Ham put it, “they had the basic information as they headed across for the meeting at the White House.” Ham also told lawmakers he met with Panetta and Dempsey when they returned from their 30-minute session with President Obama on Sept. 11.

bENGHAZI OVERHEAD

As we go through this testimony we find absolute confirmation of our previous outlines.  The attack on the Benghazi compound began at 3:40pm DC Time or 9:40pm Benghazi Time.  

Immediately following the Panetta and Dempsey briefing of President Obama and Vice-President Biden (5:00pm DC), both Obama and Biden took a previously scheduled phone call with Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu in the Oval Office (6:15pm DC).

That phone call with Netanyahu lasted just under an hour.   While that phone call was taking place then policy advisor, Denis McDonough (now Chief of Staff) and Tom Donilon, were the intermediaries between the developing Benghazi crisis situation and the Oval Office advice/position of the President.

This photo was taken at 1:28am Benghazi time. [7:28pm DC] on 9/11/12 – Following a one hour phone call between POTUS, V-Potus, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

It was McDonough and Donilon calling the response shots for the Office of the President during the critical hour (6:15pm DC to 7:20pm DC approximate  OR 12:15am to 1:20am Benghazi time).   Both McDonough and Donilon were using the filter of political consequence to frame the perceived RISK of the President – Remember this WAS an election year and the election was less than 7 weeks away.   (Full link outline)

Meanwhile in Benghazi Ambassador Stevens and his aide Chris Smith were holed up in the Benghazi Compound main building “safe room area”.   The main building (lower level) was set on fire with tires and diesel fuel designed to smoke them out.

Someone, probably Stevens or Smith, opened a bathroom window, inside the secured safe area, perhaps an attempt to compensate for the toxic smoke now surrounding  inside.

An RPG blast hit the wall just missing the window to the bathroom.

When the CIA (SEAL) contractor team [Doherty, Woods] arrived they could not find Stevens, he was missing.   However, they did recover the body Sean Smith.

Stevens was probably already gone as video emerged of him being taken out of a lower level window.   Stevens was still alive as he was dragged out.  However, he did have a pulsating blood wound in the area of his collar bone.

    In the first weeks after the attack, it was rumored that planes had been scrambled from Italy that could have helped thwart the terrorist attack, but that they were called back to Italy. Has that ever been documented or disproven? Also, were either General Ham or Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette relieved of duty for trying to launch a rescue mission in contravention of orders from the White House? Lastly, WTF was Ambassador Stevens even doing out there in Benghazi? Why had he met that Turkish envoy 1/2 hour before the attack started? What was their meeting about?

    Like

    • sundance says:

      On the record reports reflect:

      1.) General Carter Ham never rec’d instructions to activate a reactionary force stationed in Italy. There was no stand down order because there was no *stand up* order. There were forces in Italy monitoring DoD radio traffic and communications – but no *official* instructions were ever given.

      2.) General Ham was relieved of AFRICOM command but has never indicated an “on the record” reason. The official DoD reason was normal command attrition.

      3.) It is generally accepted that Stevens was acting as an emissary to the Turkish delegation for discussions surrounding the collection of missiles which had gone missing during the Libyan civil war. There is some reasonable speculation, backed up by ground reports, that align the possible transfer of weapons from Libya to Syria via Turkey.

      4.) The Turkish delegation was able to leave the consulate annex compound and leave the area while travelling through roadblocks established by those who eventually attacked the compound – now known to be al-Qaeda affiliates. A reasonable person would believe the people stationed at the roadblocks were sympathetic to the ideology of the Turks; and hence allowed them to vacate the area.

      5.) There was a safe inside the main building of the compound said to contain between $300k and $500k (U.S. Dollars). That safe was never recovered and presumed to have been part of the financing to pay for the sympathetic affiliates within the 17th February Brigade who assisted in, or walked quietly away from, the attack as it took place.

      “Our Ambassador Security Guys” had weapons, and the TOC (Tactical Operating Command) contained an armory with additional weapons/ammo. But we only had 5 of our guys acting within the compound as security.

      The rest of the security was provided by the Libyan government – that’s who the 17th February Brigade was. Because there was a possibility *their Libyan security guys* might be bad guys, the decision no to let them carry weapons was because a fear existed they might turn weapons against our team.

          The sad aspect to the consideration of a botched kidnapping is when you think about what would have been the goal if they were successful?

          Obama, -heck, any admin- would have more of a vested interest in *never* having to face that quandary and would probably have a vested interest in the ambassador not surviving, rather than face the humiliation of negotiating with terrorists.

      Blood in bathroom: Possibly one or both injured by the RPG blast. Or someone hurt during their capture. Due to the size of the blood loss I would think some kind of serious wound and that wound was not visible on Stevens as he was removed so it’s probably Sean Smith’s.

      Were they tortured? Possible – could be they didn’t know which *white guy* was Stevens. They took the entire (safe not just contents) so either they didn’t gain entry, or they were just ok with taking the safe in the first place.

      Regarding intent: Who knows if we will ever find out if this was a kidnapping attempt, or a general kill/torture/kidnapping terror attack. (I tend to think he initial goal was kidnapping)

      Regardless, we’ll never know the intent or objective unless we actually arrest, question and put the culprit(s) on trial. Then again, maybe that’s exactly why our administration has never been all that interested in actually catching them. Remember the FBI was not even there until 16 days after the incident took place – no real sense of urgency within that reality.

I’d really like to ID the people who dropped off his body there too. He was damned sure alive, but perhaps unconscious, when he exited that window, but his condition therein is obviously unknown.

      The *key* per se’ is not just interviewing random on-the-ground witnesses; the key is to interview the five State Dept/DoD security agents who were actually in the compound. Those guys are the ones who would shed light on the actual attack.

      The other survivors (18-20) are from the CIA outpost (Eastern Benghazi) almost a mile away. Almost no chance of interviewing those folks… TRADECRAFT intervention/secrecy. Trying to get them on the official public record is a snipe hunt.

      The guys who were inside the compound when it started are both heros and the key holders to understand what took place.

      Consider: There is only ONE building on the compound grounds with a second floor. That building is the *main* building or residence. The locked gate (entry to the secure safe-area) is the entry to the second floor – That makes sense because the top floor is generally the evac floor in the event of air recovery (helicopter). So we know Stevens and Smith were upstairs.

      We also know that Stevens body was removed via a downstairs window. It appears *that window* was on the opposite side of the downstairs from the gate. [meaning the terrorists carried Stevens downstairs, through the gate, and took a right turn toward a window away from the front door].

      The RPG’s fired during the attack were aimed at the second floor (see pics in this post and previous outlines) Those can only be fired if your back is facing the TOC (tactical operational command) building. [you’d also have to on the other side of the pool or the angle of the target would be too steep and too close to the top of your head]

      The internal security agents would have made the TOC the immediate Alamo because it contained the defense needs (ie weapons).

      This means the TOC had to have suppressing fire upon it so that a bad guy, or group of bad guys would be able to fire the RPG at the 2nd floor rear window.

      Without suppressing fire the TOC building (Alamo) would have been able to direct immediate line of sight fire upon the attackers flank and rear. So containing our guys inside the TOC would have been a primary objective of the enemy.

      However, OUR GUYS ain’t stupid. If detached from the Ambassador, they would know the principle (Stevens) was at risk if they stayed inside the Alamo. So while the Bad Guys were working on getting to the safe-room(s) (via the main door, the safe-room gate, and the guys firing up from the rear), our guys would have armed and left the Alamo leaving perhaps one person there to defend it (guard the armory) exposing themselves during the fight to cross the compound at the rear of the main building on the side of the cafeteria building.

      The cavalry from the CIA sub-station came in through the rear gate (4th ring road). This would have positioned them to outflank the attackers and hence diminish the numerical advantage. The bad guys now caught between suppressive fire from TOC and the cavalry (opposite flank). This also removes the danger from the enemy massed at the main gate and overran guard station.

      That’s how come so few of our guys were able to outsmart the enemy and actually reach the main building to retrieve Smith’s body. Just plain smart logistics.

      Our guys are an awesome fighting machine. They are the real hero’s. Unfortunately, they will probably never be able to testify safely as to what took place.

      Something has changed and blaming the media’s disinterest doesn’t add up. Why isn’t the House leadership forcing open disclosure? Even if there isn’t a smoking gun, the “truth will set us free” and many of us just want the truth.
      There must be more, much more, for the GOP leadership to just look the other way. I can’t imagine why they almost exclusively use closed classified sessions to inform congress and congress accepts that?
      Thx for keeping this front and center Sundance.

    Two thoughts popped into my head immediately:

    1. This article belongs front and center in bold across every headline in the country.

    2. The author had better watch his back.

    If this doesn’t prove to be the catalyst for impeachment, I don’t believe an “election” will turn anything around for the fate of the once great USA.

    In combination with the myriad of scandals and chaos wrought by the administration, the glaring omission of prosecutorial action, and deafening silence of Congress response, the only hope is our military.

      The only way to hold a sitting president accountable is impeachment. In this case the meek (GOP) will inherit minority status. Meanwhile the administration will continue with the war. The war on, working people, white man, the second amendment and several others, the military, God and the church, success, liberty, prosperity, and maybe even apple pie.

    I just realized, after responding to another article, why my first comment went into moderation for this one- I mistyped my email address! Is it possible to fix or is it lost?

    I’ve made this comment before, there does not seem to be anyone with sufficient means and protection to be able to lead the impeachment of Obama.

        Standing. WHY. Equal protection done gone down the hole. (Remember, jiggle the handle.)

        What the F is Standing? Is that like character-level in a computer roleplaying game? I can’t equip the Legendary Helm of George if I’m not at least clevel 23? I cannot challenge Obama in a court of law, as an equal-standing citizen of the USA, unless I’ve somehow got enough “Standing”? Enough “experience points” in your little legal roleplaying game?

    Good luck getting any traction with this – it’s last year’s news and the Benghazi incident’s a non-issue now in many American’s minds. Had this have come out sooner it might have been more relevant, now it’s largely potato – patahto. Washington knows that all it has to do is stretch an issue out long enough to where the public’s Short Attention Span Theater minds move on to some media/entertainment pap and – poof – the issue’s gone. The News Cycle’s a real thing, based on the public’s perception of what the opinion engineers think is important at the time. If it ain’t landing on their instant-access social media devices it ain’t worthy of rubbing two brain cells together. The American dead in Benghazi fit right in there with the American dead in Iraq and Afghanistan – how much public attention’s devoted to them?

      It shouldn’t matter if it gets any traction in the media, we have a congress that is doing worse than just doing their job poorly, they’re being accomplices.
      The people are also to blame because they’re not holding their elected officials accountable because they’re too stupid or too involved in their own lives to pay attention.
      I read a comment on a friend’s FB post the other day that pretty much describes why we’re where we’re at. The friend had posted a pic that said Obama should be impeached, one of his friends commented, “why, he’s no better or worse than all the other Presidents we’ve had.” He commented back about Obamacare, executive orders, Benghazi, IRS, etc. She commented back, “oh I don’t know about any of that, it’s not for me to worry about I trust in the Lord.”

        Yeah, I remember being taught that the Lord helps those who help themselves – Lord save us then.
        We’ve come to the point where many of us settle for the least line of resistance, whatever doesn’t get into the way of our daily enjoyment of life. We come to accept that instead of electing our servant representatives we’re content with electing someone the person who’ll do us the least damage. Doing one’s homework before an election’s too much work so they use magical thinking and believe the BS the candidates’ professional campaign managers feed us. Those of us who get mad and stay mad at the BS our reps pull are few and, sadly, getting fewer.

    This is so sad and still unfinished and murky for the families and friends of those who suffered and died at Benghazi. I really cannot make out much from those videos featured here – appears to be a woman and a man in the picture of near dead Chris Stevens in a sitting position. I cannot believe the gall exhibited by Hillary and Obama to present themselves to meet the coffins and family members – standing there as if they are loyal and grief stricken American leaders. What a crock. I have always had the sick feeling that those coffins were empty. Call me nuts, I know. As an aside, that handsome, loyal German Shepherd is becoming quite the pessimist. Also, I love this cite and cannot keep up with all the reading. Thank you to all who ferret this info out. And, healing is wished to man still in hospital from wounds suffered in the attack.

    Thanks for this report. The Treehouse has the best reporting on Benghazi I’ve seen. Kudos to Sundance. Keep in mind that no cross border authority was ever signed by the president (as far as we know) and so any potential military response was stopped cold. The victims’ families as well as the American people deserve to know the truth. I once had hopes truth would out, but I seriously doubt it now. I still have a number of questions about Benghazi that may never be answered.
