Benghazi: Not about Video, Military Personnel ‘Furious’ Over Stand Down Order

As readers here knew all along, the video had nothing to do with the attack on Benghazi. 

Hicks says ‘I’ve been demoted’ for challenging Susan Rice’s claims about blaming video

Gregory Hicks, former deputy chief of mission in Benghazi, told Congress today that a State Department official began criticizing his job performance, and he was ultimately demoted, after he asked why U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice attributed the Benghazi attack to an anti-Islamic Youtube video.

“In hindsight, I think it began after I asked the question about Ambassador Rice’s statement on the TV shows,” Hicks said of the criticism during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the attack today.

Hicks said he asked Assistant Secretary Beth Jones why Rice made the statements that she did on the 9/16/13 Sunday talk shows.

“Her reaction was ‘I don’t know,’ and it was very clear from the tone that I should not proceed with any further [questions],” he told lawmakers.

Hicks told the committee, “I’ve effectively been demoted from deputy chief of mission to desk officer.”

  1. There are many unanswered questions. Why didn’t the Turkish Ambassador send help? Was he told to stand down too? Turkey is a member state of NATO after all. The White House was watching this thing unfold in real time. So, the order to stand down would have been an act of egregious dereliction of duty, and or murder. But why? Why was the decision to stand down given? Could it be that Clinton and Valerie Jarred did not want to hurt allies that we counted on to take Syria down? In any event, Clinton and Obama lied to Congress and the American people. Criminal action needs to be taken against both of them.

    • Heres what I’m betting the scenario was and I’m no Einstein, just a critical thinker.
      I believe the smoking gun leads straight to Obama and Morsi,and Obamas backing of Egypts Muslim Brotherhood.regime..
      When Morsi made his election promise that the Blind Sheik would be released, I believe Obama made that promise to Morsi. .
      How to accomplish it was the “pretended ” kidnapping of Ambassador Stevens.who was in on the the plot.( which horribly backfired when the ” kidnappers” met resistance and thought they had been betrayed), Pro Islam Ambassador Stevens was already on the ground there doing gun running for the Obama Administration. This would explain Turkeys Ambassador and Stevens meeting to tie up the ” kidnapping” details that night, the purposeful prior gutting of security for the compound by Hillary, the ( laughable) hiring of a radical Islamic group to ” guard” the Compound,..,
      All would have gone to plan except for the valor and bravery of two ex-Navy Seals who rushed to the aid of the Compound, ignoring stand down orders,. and fought the Islamists for eight hours!!, to be totally abandoned by the WATCHING Obama and Hillary as forces nearby were also ordered to STAND DOWN..! this is the most traitorous Act by a President and his cohorts, EVER in the history of America,,
      The video scenario was brought in to the picture to explain the attack, and it also further helped Obamas and Hillarys ongoing negotiations at the UN of Blasphemy and Hate speech laws..
      Who can forget Hillarys meetings with OIC members behind closed doors, and unreported conversations , to stop ” hate speech” at the time and the never forgotten and amazing statement by Obama, at the UN when in discussing this ” disgusting” video , he proclaimed, ” The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of islam”

      • Also I might add that the imprisoned MB in Egypt have been reported in the Egyptian media as saying that they have knowledge about Obama that if told, would bring down his Administration.. Whats the bet that they havent exposed him because of the greater good of the Muslim Brotherhood whose grand scheme is to bring down America , and whose jihadists are and have been in positions of power within the White House,,ie. Huma Abedin and Ellis etc

  2. Maybe stand down was more personal. Did Stevens have some info that admin. didn’t want public? Dead men tell no tales and there seems to be an increasing number…

  3. These people didn’t need “Mommies” in some other country telling them that they were “with them”! They needed well armed, well trained, blood thirsty warriors on the spot to protect them. In short, this was murder by inaction, a willful blood sacrifice, to Allah/Islam, little more.

    How stupid does this administration think we are? The Internet is rife with anti-Islam videos. There is no reason for any particular video to stand out and “cause” this. This administration is one of lies and deception.

    Less than 4 years to go.

  4. Audacity of hope states Obama will side with Islam if the winds blow against it. Well, that happened. The US elected him, maybe. Get over it. Expect him to side with islam no matter what they do. He has to. The US has its first islamic president, and he indeed according to his faith sides against us and stands with islam. Read the Koran! Learn!

    Thank the democrats for finding him, funded by the saudis ran him as a black man. Well, he is a black man. More importantly, a muslim. How did electing someone based on his skin color work? They also ran someone based on their sex. All good qualities to run a politically correct libtard country, I am sure. Someone suggest they should repeal the law of gravity. I am sure that would get a lot of votes from them.
