Forget Obama, What the Hell is Wrong with Our Military Leaders?!

Forget the political implications to this story for a moment and consider this story:

Benghazi and the Lethal Price of Arming Jihadists

Over the weekend, the newest, and by far the most disturbing, revelations surrounding the Benghazi attack were revealed. Several sources have pointed to the possibility that a major CIA gun-running operation aimed at arming anti-Assad Al-Qaeda-affiliated forces was in danger of being exposed. If true, the information casts an even more devastating pall over the Benghazi terrorist attack and the administration’s botched handling of the region.

The decision to stand down as the Benghazi terrorist attack was underway was met with extreme opposition from the inside. The Washington Times‘s James Robbins, citing a source inside the military, reveals that General Carter Ham, commander of U.S. Africa Command, who got the same emails requesting help received by the White House, put a rapid response team together and notified the Pentagon it was ready to go. He was ordered to stay put. “His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow,” writes Robbins. “Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.”

Now, I am NOT condemning Gen. Hamm or even CIA director David Petraeus, I am condemning Gen. Hamm’s second in command for accepting the order to leave Americans in the field — under fire — when he could provide support. I am well aware that we have political animals in the military, but when they are allowed to undermine the primary function of the military — to protect and defend America and Americans — then they are as treasonous as the President.

Lest we forget, the Americans under fire in Libya were on U.S. SOIL! That constitutes an attack on America directly. When the President gives an order to NOT protect U.S. soil, that order borders on UNLAWFUL! The U.S. military swears an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and the nation. What they were told to defend in Benghazi was Obama’s ass, but — contrary to what he thinks — Obama is NOT America — you and I are.

If you are in the U.S. military and you are given an order that is contrary to your oath to this nation and our constitution and you follow it…  Well, I guess I have to wonder: will the day come when I see you at my front door coming to collect my weapons, or jail me because I spoke out against your emperor, Obama?  You may think this hyperbole or an extreme comment, but it isn’t.  Historically, this is how good nations turn bad.  If the military is now joining our corrupt leaders and following orders to let Americans die, then I suggest that transformation has already happened.

At this point, any and all Americans should ask themselves a simple question:

“Would YOU have ordered the military to let these 4 Americans die?”

If your answer is no, then how could you vote for the man who did?

Now, can we discuss the fact that, more and more, it is starting to look like Obama actually was (is?) arming our enemies?  Do you know what that is called?  So, here again, the question is:

“Would you give weapons to Al Qaeda?”

  1. You have no proof that any of this happened as you claim.
    Funny, you defend a child-killer by saying that we don’t have all the evidence yet, then you do what you criticize in others.
    Smells like hypocrisy to me.

    • You are the one who defends pedophiles and murderers, Greg.

      We also have as much proof that this is what happened as you EVER had for all your accusations against Bush. What’s more, a great deal of the things Bush was accused of turned out to be based in truth. Yet, now that it is turned against “your” President, you suddenly reject the very same principles upon which you built your entire position under bush.

      I think reasonable people know full well who the hypocrite is on this issue.

    • Ah more flippant hyperventilation from Greg. Had I not been at work, I could have posted first, and predicted this.

  2. If it was true, the intent was to end the war as quickly as possible after overthrowing Hitler and taking power; then my interpretation; he was being loyal to Germany, the German people, and the world, by being disloyal to Hitler. Millions of lives would not have been saved.

    • His intention, if I remember correctly, was NOT to end the war. It was to end the war with the West and even try to solicit our support to continue the war against Russia.

      • Hmmmmm, sounds like something one of our generals suggested…… and with hindsight, it might have been a “better” course of action than course actually taken….


    The ENEMY is not only INSIDE THE GATES, the ENEMY is now in control of those “manning” the GATES.
