ADMISSION: SPECIAL FORCES WERE ONLY HOURS FROM BENGHAZI
Joint chiefs chairman confirms whistleblower account
*** begin quote ***
JERUSALEM – In a bombshell admission that has until now gone unreported, Martin Dempsey, chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, conceded that highly trained Special Forces were stationed just a few hours away from Benghazi on the night of the attacks but were not told to deploy to Libya.
In comments that may warrant further investigation, Dempsey stated at a Senate hearing Wednesday that on the night of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, command of the Special Forces – known as C-110, or the EUCOM CIF – was transferred from the military’s European command to AFRICOM, or the United States Africa Command.
Also, Dempsey’s comments on the travel time between Croatia and Benghazi were incorrect.
His remarks for the first time confirm an exclusive Fox News interview aired April 30 in which a special government operator, speaking on condition of anonymity, contradicted claims by the Obama administration and a State Department review that there wasn’t enough time for military forces to deploy the night of the attack.

OK, now we don’t have some unnamed source afraid for their own hide.
Here’s the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff saying it.
Our fighting men were abandoned on the battlefield for politics.
If I was him, I’d resign.
To admit that I broke faith with my fellow soldiers is dishonorable.
“Everyone” can say there is no scandal here. But that doesn’t make it so. Calling a fart “rose perfume” doesn’t make it smell any better.
Sorry, but “We, The People” should be demanding investigations and resignations.
Heads on pikes. The perfumed princes in the Pentegon, gone. The chain for command that broke down, gone.
Sorry, and don’t tell me we don’t know who gave the order. The military ALWAYS knows who gave the orders.
