White House During Benghazi 7 Hour Seige

Help Request – White House 9-11-12 Photo During Benghazi 7 Hour Seige…. ?

by sundance from The Conservative Treehouse

The White House has refused repeated attempts by journalists to produce pictures of President Obama and his team in the White House Situation Room during the 9-11 Benghazi terrorist attacks [3:30pm to 11:00pm Eastern Time].

Personally, after researching the offical reports minute by minute, and comparing them to the media released statements, I believe the Situation Room was empty.

Today the White House released this picture taken on 9-11-12.  It was included in a White House FLICKR Album “The Year In Pictures“.  You Decide:

(Sept. 11, 2012) – ”Denis McDonough, Deputy National Security Advisor, left, updates the President and Vice President on the situation in the Middle East and North Africa. National Security Advisor Tom Donilon and Chief of Staff Jack Lew are at right.” (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

A couple of notes:  It’s twilight outside, so this is close to sunset on September 11th.  The vehicles are noted through the window and you can tell it is twilight.   Sunset Was 7:22pm, with end of civil twilight at 7:49pm on Sept 11th 2012.   The metadata embedd shows the picture was taken at 7:26pm.

So this picture was taken four hours after the fire-fight started, and they are NOT in the “situation room”.   We know the video & audio feed from the Benghazi faux-State Dept. Consulate was live;  So, simultaneous to this photograph it was 1:26am Benghazi Time.  That is the exact time (01:30am) the rescue team of Navy SEAL’s Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty arrived back in the CIA annex with the body of Sean Smith.

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.”

    I’m seeing the start of quite the little under ground economy taking shape. This asshole isn’t going to keep people from making money. Shit it’s only been a couple months since the election and barter is suddenly becoming extremely popular.

    We’ve sent the picture to an astronomy group who have massive capability to clean up pixel data – so we’ll be able to read soon.

    However, it appears to be just notes from the convo with BiBi Netanyahu and unrelated to Benghazi.

    What strikes as odd is the non-emergency nature of the events at the time. Clearly by 7:26 they knew what was up; if not…. well, that just speaks to an isolated Oval Office.

    But for Obama and Biden (who was never reported to have been on the phone with Netanyahu) to be carrying on regular business 3 hours after the crisis started is really odd.

    All of this is confirming the picture that many sites had drawn a conclusion toward. The administration felt this was not THAT big a deal at the time. A sentiment which remains today. :(

    Stevens was running guns.

    A military op to rescue him and the ensuing reportage would have been “inconvenient” in the midst of Zero’s reelection campaign.

    They just hoped to ignore it so maybe it would go away.

    Unfortunately, they may have been right…

    @reeko, we’ve got that part cleared up. It is not a monitor, it is an opaque image of the windshield and side windows of the vehicles outside the office window(s) door at dusk.

    The image was taken at exactly 7:26:18pm.

    This part matters because of the conjunctions of it all.

    We know this picture is immediately following the phone call with BiBi (Biden’s notes)

    We know the phone call with BiBi took one hour. (so 6:30ish to 7:26pm)
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/09/11/readout-president-s-call-israeli-prime-minister-netanyahu

    We know from 6:30 to 7:26 the POTUS and VPOTUS were *indisposed* due to this call. All the while “others” were making the non-gutsy calls about Benghazi…

    Now when you add what New Gingrich said:
    “There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to ‘stand down’, Gingrich said.”
    http://hotair.com/archives/2012/10/31/gingrich-a-reliable-senator-tells-me-two-networks-have-stand-down-e-mails-from-donilons-office/

    It makes sense:

    Donilon told people to “stand down” while POTUS and VPOTUS were on the phone with BiBi and unable to be interrupted.

    At 7:26pm (DC) 1:30am (Benghazi) when this picture was taken – Woods and Doherty were screaming audio “where the fuck is the scepter”, they died moments later.

    While McDonough was bringing POTUS up to speed, at that exact moment, Doherty and Woods were killed on the roof of the annex.

    After that, it was all too late. They needed to whip up a good cover story.

    Enter McDonough on 9/12 with the U-Tube cover:

    “This work takes on added urgency given the truly
    abhorrent video that has offended so many people–Muslims, and non-Muslims alike—in our country and around the world.”

    http://iprcua.com/denis-mcdonoughs-address/

    Why is McDonough important? How much does he count?

    “Investigative journalists have provided details on McDonough’s background and work history in politics, but the information that makes McDonough relevant to the continually breaking news on the Fast and Furious scandal is his role in silencing complaints from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)…”

    http://www.examiner.com/article/obama-s-media-hit-man-linked-to-fast-and-furious

    The fog begins to lift….

    Donolin said “stand down”, McDonough made sure no one found out what happened, or didn’t happen, from that oval office on that afternoon/evening…. The situation room was never engaged, and..

    AND four Americans died.

    Now go look at that picture again.

    Let me get this straight–no one interrupted BHO and Biden on phone to Netanyahu, even though our consulate had been attacked? Do I understand you correctly?

    Who the h*** gave “the others” the authority to make decisions that should ONLY be handled by the CIC?

    They did HOURS later. Woods resisted until about 4:00.

    Had Obama gave cross-border authority to Gen. Ham of AFRICOM (via Panetta), a gunship would have had plenty of time to fly from Sigonella to Benghazi in order to rescue Woods and Doherty, and to secure the highly valuable content of the CIA annex (where they were fighting at that time).

    Again, Sundance is wrong, at least regarding Ty Woods. The fight at the CIA Annex began around midnite, and kept going for at least 3 hours.

    So Woods did not die moments later this picture was taken; he daie at minimum an hour and half later.

    Those guys still had the power to save him (and possibly Doherty).

    Smith was already dead at the ‘main compound.’ Stevens also was dead.

    2) the CIA annex (midnite Benghazi time)

    @Mary, yes during the phone call POTUS and VPOTUS were uninterrupted….

    It appears Panetta and Dempsey were in charge and McDonough and Donilon were Substitutes for Obama’s opinion on things.

    VPOTUS holds the key to discovery. Think back to his VP Debate answer.

    POTUS and VPOTUS are not supposed to be tied down together for this exact reason. It was a breach of protocol. But this POTUS and VPOTUS do this all the time.

    Remember Biden even said he spends 8-12 hours a day, every day with Obama. Google it.

    As soon as the attack on the main compound began (soon after the Turk left), Gen. Ham of Africom knew it, and Obama knew it.

    We know Obama knew long before the phonce call with Israel because a Quick Reaction Froce immediatly flew from Tripoli to Benghazi (and thus Doherty joined Woods) and a drone was flown as well from Tripoli to Benghazi.

    The same alert that triggered the QRF in Tripoli reached Obama; this is standard protocol.

    Sundance is WAY OFF :

    A briefing from the U.S. State Department (and it has been confirmed by many sources) states that Woods and Doherty came back to the Annex from the main compound around midnite (Benghazi time):

    http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2012/10/198791.htm

    So Sundance is making two huge MISTAKES:

    1) claiming Woods died soon “moments later” this picture was taking

    2) claiming the two former SEALs arrived at 1:26 am at the CIA Annex.

    Way to go sir, way to go.
