We have been working on an extensive investigative article about the events of September 11, 2012, during which U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, an aide, and two retired Navy SEALS, were slaughtered in Benghazi.
The White House cover-story that the fatal attack was caused by some kind of anti-Muslim videotape has long been discredited. But many more questions remain.
Why wasn't a rescue force sent in? At our military base in Signoella, Sicily - just 400 miles from downtown Benghazi - a fully-equipped Special Forces unit with both transport and jet strike aircraft, were only a few hours away. The highly-trained American fighters could have had boots on the ground well before the seven-hour attack was over.
Someone gave the order to "stand down." Who had that authority and why haven't we had answers as to why more than four months after this incident?
Not even a fighter-jet was used to fly low on full after-burner over the compound to disperse the gang of killers.
QUESTIONS THAT DEMAND ANSWERS AND THE TRUTH
We have been told Secretary of State Hillary Clinton can't testify because of first, a "stomach virus," and now "a blood clot" that necessitated her being hospitalized.
Leon Panetta is on his way out as Secretary of Defense, and his likely replacement is one of the Democrat's favorite Republicans, pro-Palestinian former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel.
Now a high-ranking retired Navy admiral has called for a "bi-partisan" Congressional investigation to "uncover the facts and make them known to the American public. Nothing less is acceptable," said the former commander-in-chief of the Pacific Fleet, ADM James A. Lyons.
The outspoken, but much-respected four-star flag officer, served 36 years in the Navy. His mind sharp as a tack and uncaring about "political correctness," the man known throughout the military as "Ace Lyons," doesn't care whose toes he steps on or whose sensibilities he offends.
"There is no doubt in my mind that action on our part could have saved the lives of those Americans at the Benghazi compound that night," he said
ADM Lyons' views have been aired by two Washington newspapers, the TIMES and EXAMINER, but a key member of the mainstream media, the Washington POST, has been largely silent. Is that because they don't want to embarrass the man they supported for re-election as President of the United States, Barack Obama
"COAST-TO-COAST" HOST DOESN'T FOLLOW SCRIP
We were stunned last Saturday night to hear veteran talk-show host John B. Wells - no, not the retired Navy commander and our outstanding legal counsel, John "Bulldog" Wells, America's premiere defense attorney - discuss the possibility, whispered around Washington the past few months, that the deaths of the four Americans, including Ambassador Stevens, resulted from a botched "October Surprise" prisoner swap.
The story goes that Obama wanted to ingratiate himself with his friends in the Muslim Brotherhood by staging a "kidnap" of Stevens and then swiftly "exchanging" him for release of the infamous "Blind Sheik," Omar Abdel Rahman. No one would be killed, and the "commander-in-chief," hailed as a hero by his media allies, would be a sure bet to win another four years in the White House.
Something went badly wrong, and thus the ham-handed cover-up. Susan Rice was trotted out on five TV talk shows on one Sunday to sell a story that the Administration knew was false.
In Egypt, Rahman, who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center attack, and had publicly called for murder of Americans and Jews, is a hero to the Muslim Brotherhood. Why would the President, a self-proclaimed Christian, be so interested in pleasing people like this?
That Wells, Saturday night host of Coast-to-Coast, would deviate from the official line and discuss what might have really happened without the sneering put-downs of the establishment media, is refreshing as it is remarkable. Let's see if he touches on the issue in future programs. Post Art Bell, most of George Noory's overnight shows feature non-threatening (to the Administration) topics like Bigfoot sightings and alien visitors from another planet.
WATCH OUT FOR "DISINFORMATION"
Our longtime editor-in-chief taught us that a certain amount of disinformation is put out by some three-letter agencies to trick critics into using material that later can be debunked and thus discredit them.
That is why we have been hesitant, until now, to even mention some of the "conspiracy theories" floating around.
Ever since MilitaryCorruption.com went online July 4, 2000, co-founders MAJ Glenn MacDonald and (the late) GEN Peter Genovese, both USAR (Ret.), were very careful to keep MCC from being discounted and rendered ineffective. That we are still here today, stronger than ever, with up to six million hits a month worldwide, is a tribute to those two officers and the many sacrifices they made.
