I am beginning to think we have a White House full of Psychopaths.  They talk a good game about compassion for all, but from what I see they are all hat and no horse.

We have a failed President talking about phony scandals?   Benghazi a “phony” scandal?  Four brave and productive Americans needlessly  killed in a Shark like feeding frenzy.  Obviously precautions could have and should have been made to prevent such an attack after the State Dept and surely the President were made aware that all foreign embassies and personnel were targets of terrorist in Lybia.  Instead of protecting our overseas personnel this Administration spins a ludicrous tale about some obscure  video  initiating a protest of Muslim citizens!  Obviously a childish attempt   to cover up the ineptitude of the State Department and the Pentagon. Are we to believe that a spontaneous  protest of  irate Muslim citizens would include rocket launchers and sub machine guns?   Meanwhile our ever astute President’s main concern seem to have been to  get a good nights sleep so he could  wow his groupies at his next fund-raising event.

And then these self-serving,  power-hungry ideologues put salt in the wound by referring to Benghazi as a Bump in the Road, (White House Spin)),  followed by a Screeching declaration of “What difference does it make? (Hillary Clinton,  our Sec of State) and now we have “A Phony Scandal” (The President of the United States}

How about other Phony Scandals.   The IRS ordered to deliberately forestall the approval of 501 status to Conservative Groups in order to prevent them from acquiring sufficient funds to promote their views during the 2012 elections, obviously using the IRS as an arm of the Obama re-election campaign.  A Phony Scandal? What a Crock!

And while we are at it how about the Sibelius manipulations of Medicaid and Medicare,? Talk about pushing grandma off a cliff to pump up the President’s major legislative achievement.  Cut Medicare and Medicaid to make it look at though Obama care is saving the Government money. Meanwhile insulting the Catholic Church and its Bishops but demanding they bow to Secularists abortion priorities.  Maybe that isn’t considered a scandal but it should be.  Of course a bigger scandal is Notre Dame giving an honorary degree to one of the Nations  biggest Abortion legislators in the country President Obama.

The Appointees and Czars of this Administration are touted as the Best and the Brightest this Nation has to offer,  if that is actually true this Nation is beyond redemption. They may be smart but from where I sit they seem a bubble off plum at best and probably psychopathic to say the least.

Then how about playing the Racist Card   from the White House purportedly to support Trevor Martin but in real politics a blatant effort to  distract from the mounting evidence the IRS was engaged in aiding the President’s re-election campaign and fuel for the racial conflict political profiteers.  Stirring up mobs for political gain is probably an even more disgusting use of Presidential Power and more than just a scandal, I call it criminal.

I received the following in an e-mail and it made me aware of how little diligence our media has given to investigating Benghazi. They pushed Watergate where no one was killed into an impeachment of a President but with tBenghazi ,where four Americans were killed, all they do is parrot the spin. What’s up? Are our watch dogs in the press nothing but pet poodles of this Administration? Anyway I think this message from an honored fighter pilot should be circulated to the world.

Need To Read…… Subject: Air Force expert pilot on Benghazi

I would say every US fighter pilot, retired or on active duty, knows that Panetta and Dempsey both are full of crap when they said there was no time to send help to Benghazi. They claim it was a problem of “time/space.” All my friends and I said, “Bullshit.” We know they could have gotten F-16s there from Aviano Air Base in Italy.

“Hands” Handley is a well-respected USAF fighter pilot. Here is his short resume and what he just wrote about Benghazi below that. If anything, Handley is pessimistic in his timeline of when F-16s could have reached Benghazi . I think they could have been airborne even sooner and turned quicker at Sig. The decision to not try was not based on capability. We had the operational capability in every way.

I hope Handley’s taxes are in order. His IRS audit is forthcoming.

Eagle Biography

Colonel Phil “Hands” Handley

Colonel Phil “Hands” Handley is credited with the highest speed air- to-air gun kill in the history of aerial combat. He flew operationally for all but 11 months of a 26-year career, in aircraft such as the F-86 Sabre, F-15 Eagle, and the C-130A Hercules. Additionally, he flew 275 combat missions during two tours in Southeast Asia in the F- 4D and F-4E. His awards include 21 Air Medals, 3 Distinguished Flying Crosses, and the Silver Star.

Betrayal in Benghazi
Phil “Hands” Handley Colonel, USAF (Ret.)

The combat code of the US Military is that we don’t abandon our dead or wounded on the battlefield. In US Air Force lingo, fighter pilots don’t run off and leave their wingmen. If one of our own is shot down, still alive and not yet in enemy captivity, we will either come to get him or die trying.

Among America ‘s fighting forces, the calm, sure knowledge that such an irrevocable bond exists is priceless. Along with individual faith and personal grit, it is a sacred trust that has often sustained hope in the face of terribly long odds.

The disgraceful abandonment of our Ambassador and those brave ex-SEALs who fought to their deaths to save others in that compound is nothing short of dereliction-of-duty.

Additionally, the patently absurd cover-up scenario that was fabricated in the aftermath was an outright lie in an attempt to shield the President and the Secretary of State from responsibility.

It has been over eight months since the attack on our compound in Benghazi . The White House strategy, with the aid of a “lap dog” press has been to run out the clock before the truth is forthcoming.
The recent testimonies of the three “whistle blowers” have reopened the subject and hopefully will lead to exposure and disgrace of those responsible for this embarrassing debacle. It would appear that the most recent firewall which the Administration is counting on is the contention “that there were simply no military assets that could be brought to bear in time to make a difference” mainly due to the unavailability of tanker support for fighter aircraft.

This is simply BS, regardless how many supposed “experts” the Administration trot out to make such an assertion.

The bottom line is that even if the closest asset capable of response was half-way around the world, you don’t just sit on your penguin ass and do nothing.

The fact is that the closest asset was not half-way around the world, but as near as Aviano Air Base, Italy where two squadrons of F-16Cs are based.

Consider the following scenario (all times Benghazi local): When Hicks in Tripoli receives a call at 9:40 PM from Ambassador Stevens informing him “Greg, we are under attack!” (his last words), he immediately notifies all agencies and prepares for the immediate initiation of an existing “Emergency Response Plan.”

At AFRICON, General Carter Ham attempts to mount a rescue effort, but is told to “stand down”. By 10:30 PM an unarmed drone is overhead the compound and streaming live feed to various “Command and Control Agencies” and everyone watching that feed knew damn well what was going on.

At 11:30 PM Woods, Doherty and five others leave Tripoli, arriving in Benghazi at 1:30 AM on Wednesday morning, where they hold off the attacking mob from the roof of the compound until they are killed by a mortar direct hit at 4:00 AM.
So nothing could have been done, eh? Nonsense. If one assumes that tanker support really “was not available” what about this:

When at 10:00 PM AFRICON alerts the 31st TFW Command Post in Aviano Air Base, Italy of the attack, the Wing Commander orders preparation for the launch of two F-16s and advises the Command Post at NAS Sigonella to prepare for hot pit refueling and quick turn of the jets.

By 11:30 PM, two F-16Cs with drop tanks and each armed with five hundred 20 MM rounds are airborne. Flying at 0.92 mach they will cover the 522 nautical miles directly to NAS Sigonella in 1.08 hours. While in-route, the flight lead is informed of the tactical situation, rules of engagement, and radio frequencies to use.

The jets depart Sigonella at 1:10 AM with full fuel load and cover the 377 nautical miles directly to Benghazi in 0.8 hours, arriving at 1:50 AM which would be 20 minutes after the arrival of Woods, Doherty and their team.

Providing that the two F-16s initial pass over the mob, in full afterburner at 200 feet and 550 knots did not stop the attack in its tracks, only a few well placed strafing runs on targets of opportunity would assuredly do the trick.

Were the F-16s fuel state insufficient to recover at Sigonelli after jettisoning their external drop tanks, they could easily do so at Tripoli International Airport , only one-half hour away.

As for those hand-wringing naysayers who would worry about IFR clearances, border crossing authority, collateral damage, landing rights, political correctness and dozens of other reasons not to act” screw them. It is high time that our “leadership” get their priorities straight and put America’s interests first.

The end result would be that Woods and Doherty would be alive. Dozens in the attacking rabble would be rendezvousing with “72 virgins” and a clear message would have been sent to the next worthless POS terrorist contemplating an attack on Americans that it is not really a good idea to “tug” on Superman’s cape.

Of course all this would depend upon a Commander In Chief that was more concerned with saving the lives of those he put in harm’s way than getting his crew rested for a campaign fund raising event in Las Vegas the next day. As well as a Secretary of State that actually understood “What difference did it make?”, or a Secretary of Defense whose immediate response was not to the effect that “One of the military tenants is that you don’t commit assets until you fully understand the tactical situation.”Was he not watching a live feed from the unarmed drone, and he didn’t understand the tactical situation?

Ultimately it comes down to the question of who gave that order to stand down? Whoever that coward turns out to be should be exposed, removed from office, and face criminal charges for dereliction of duty. The combat forces of the Untied States of America deserve leadership that really does “have their back” when the chips are down.
