What are the odds on this happening? Two flag officers, operating in the same theater (Mideast area) both relieved or reassigned within a matter of days.
Highly-respected Army Gen. Carter Ham, boss at Africa Command the past 18 months, suddenly is brought home after rumors he was outraged when his offer to send in a reaction team to save the besieged Americans at Benghazi was turned down. There are reports that the general had a rapid response team all set to go, but was ordered to "stand down."
Sources say the general said "to hell with that" and insisted the rescue attempt be tried. Within two minutes of the order, it is said the general was apprehended and his second-in-command officially relieved him of command.
We might add here, that Obama suck-up, that wretched little gnome, Gen. Martin Dempsey, who is Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has officially denied that report, claiming that Ham was on board with the Pentagon in deciding "against sending in U.S. forces" to attempt a rescue of the Americans in the beleaguered Benghazi compound.
ANOTHER FLAG OFFICER PAYS A HEAVY PRICE
If that wasn't indication of possible dissension at high levels, Navy Rear Admiral, former commander of the USS John Stennis Strike Group, Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette was mysteriously relieved of duty, and all the brass will say is he is "under investigation" for, get this, "inappropriate leadership judgment."
Just another way of saying that the admiral dared differ with the Administration's Libya policy and perhaps openly defied Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. It'll be interesting to see if the good admiral is court-martialed and if his trial would be open to the news media.
Other than the Fox News Channel, the MSM ("mainstream media") are so far "in the tank" for their hero Obama, his re-election so important to them, the Benghazi lies and cover-up will be downplayed and/or ignored.
The YouTube anti-Muslim video excuse and cover-story has already been exposed for a fraud, but CNN, the Washington POST and New York TIMES have yet to ask the President any embarrassing questions.
"POLITICAL CONSIDERATIONS," RECALLING THE PAST
We can't help but recall 1980, when another unpopular President, Jimmy Carter, tried a "Hail Mary" pass to defeat Ronald Reagan in the general election that year. Some of you will remember eight American officers and men lost their lives in a failed rescue attempt of our Iran Embassy hostages in Tehran.
A helicopter from a U.S. aircraft carrier collided with a Delta Force C-130 cargo plane, and both went up in a fireball in the desert.
Ironically, an Air Force AC-130 Spectre gunship was less than two hours away from Benghazi and could have been sent to provide suppression fire for the besieged Americans. But like other reinforcements that could have been sent in, the order came from on high to "stand down."
One can imagine Obama, desperate to defeat Romney on Nov. 6th, didn't want to risk a similar fiasco as Carter suffered.. But was that reason enough to write off four American lives, including that of our ambassador to Libya? We think not.
The grieving father of dead American hero and former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods agrees.
Describing his son's memorial service, Wood's dad said Obama told him he was sorry "in a whiney, insincere voice" and " couldn't look me in the eye."
Any wonder why?
