Benghazi: Where are Gen. Ham and Adm. Gaouette? ... JB Williams
Who knows the whole truth about why Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods
and Glen Doherty along with State Department officials Chris Stevens and Sean
Smith died in Benghazi 11 September 2012?
It’s now public knowledge that the ever evolving official
administration stories on Benghazi
are all bold
faced lies. It’s clear that the four Americans who were brutally murdered
in Benghazi did not have to die.
What’s not clear yet, is who is responsible for these murders? Nothing the
Obama administration has told the people about Benghazi
is true… but who is responsible?
Carter Ham and Admiral Charles
M. Gaouette know the answer to this question. Where are Ham and Gaouette today?
Why hasn’t Issa’s investigative committee called these decorated Military
officers to testify before the committee investigating Benghazi?
We have known since 30
October 2012 that these two officers…
ordered to STAND DOWN in Benghazi
relieved of duty for refusing orders to STAND DOWN
We know from the unclassified
cables between Benghazi and DC
and the subsequent Executive
Brief, that cables were firing in all directions in the hours before and
during the Benghazi attack that
ended in the brutal death of four Americans.
General Ham was head of AFRICOM and Commander of the 2011
US-NATO operation to depose Gadhafi in Libya.
Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette was in command of the Carrier Strike Group
Three (CSG-3), then deployed in Middle
Eastern waters during the attack on Benghazi.
Both Ham and Gaouette reported receiving the same desperate cables
for additional security and backup that Obama administration officials received
and ignored from Benghazi. They did
not ignore those desperate calls for help ringing out from the Benghazi
installation on 11 September 2012.
No, both Ham and Gaouette attempted to launch ready response
teams in the region capable of provided the much needed assistance during the
seven hour long assault on Benghazi.
Both were then relieved of command for their actions, described by the US
Military as “allegations of inappropriate leadership judgment.”
Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the
Pentagon that he had a unit ready to deploy to Benghazi.
Then, General Ham received the order to stand down. His response was “screw
it,” - he was going to help anyway.
Within minutes after issuing an order to deploy his ready
response team, Ham’s second in command apprehended the General and told him
that he was now relieved of his command. Ham knows who issued the order to
STAND DOWN as well as the order to relieve him of his command at AFRICOM.
Adm. Gaouette had also received the startling requests for
support as the attack unfolded in Benghazi.
Like Ham, he readied a response from Carrier Strike Group Three (CSG-3).
Gaouette was also ordered to STAND DOWN and like Ham, he decided to refuse
those orders. Gaouette readied vital intelligence and communications operations
for an extraction effort to be launched by Ham.
What were the “inappropriate judgments” of these two
decorated Military leaders? Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Navy's chief spokesman,
declined to discuss the investigation.
What we know is that these two highly unusual acts to remove
two highly decorated commanders is related to the 11 September 2012 strike on Benghazi.
We also know that the congressional investigation has not yet called these
valiant men in to give testimony.
We know that months’ worth of warnings and requests for
additional security at Benghazi we
ignored and denied by the Clinton
run State Department and that someone gave the DoD order to STAND DOWN when
American troops were in the region and ready to assist.
We know that the Obama administration manufactured a lie
about some obscure anti-Islam youtube clip that had nothing whatsoever to do
with the events of 11 September 2012
Benghazi. We know that the Obama
administration is holding that filmmaker in prison today. We know that Benghazi
survivors have been threatened and silenced.
But most of all, we know that Gen. Ham and Adm. Gaouette can
provide very real answers to a laundry list of very important questions
regarding the Benghazi attacks and Issa’s alleged investigation.
On 23 April 2013,
Five House Committees investigating Benghazi
issued a joint Interim
Progress Report. In it, all five committees fail to ask the right questions
and all five demonstrate a clear intent to keep the truth about Benghazi
under wraps, though the report does confirm almost everything stated herein.
The attack in Benghazi
of 11 September, 2012 is
now almost eight months old and yet, the truth about that attack is still a
distant fog sheltered by government officials engaged in blatant obstruction of
justice, made possible by the help of a totally incompetent or complicit press.
And then, recall Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta once Ham
and Gaouette have testified.
Someone is responsible for the murder of Americans in Benghazi
and the lies that followed. That someone, in fact, all who are involved in the Benghazi
murder and the cover up, must be held fully accountable.
