Emails Show Military Ready to Move on Benghazi – White House Called Them Off – Ambassador Left to Die
Islamic terrorists attacked the US embassy in Benghazi with rocket propelled grenades and machine gun fire on 9-11- 2012 killing four Americans including the US ambassador.
US Ambassador Chris Stevens was abandoned by the Obama White House and left to die.
The Obama State Department finally admitted the Benghazi killers were al-Qaeda linked terrorists in January 2014, over two years after the terrorist attack — which undermined their claims for the past year that the attack was a spontaneous reaction to an offensive video.
Barack Obama knew the Benghazi assault was a terrorist attack just minutes after Islamists stormed the consulate on 9-11, 2012.
Emails show the Pentagon was ready to move to rescue the US men and women trapped in Benghazi.
The Obama White House called them off.

As the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was unfolding, a high-ranking Pentagon official urgently messaged Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top deputies to offer military help, according to an email obtained by Judicial Watch.
The revelation appears to contradict testimony Defense Secretary Leon Panetta gave lawmakers in 2013, when he said there was no time to get forces to the scene in Libya, where four Americans were killed, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.
“I just tried you on the phone but you were all in with S [apparent reference to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton],” reads the email, from Panetta’s chief of staff Jeremy Bash. “After consulting with General Dempsey, General Ham and the Joint Staff, we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.”
The email was sent out at 7:19 p.m. ET on Sept. 11, 2012, in the early stages of the eight-hour siege that also claimed the lives of Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith and two former Navy SEALs, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, private CIA contractors who raced to the aid of embattled State Department workers.
Although the email came after the first wave of the attack at the consulate, it occurred before a mortar strike on the CIA annex killed Woods and Doherty.
“This leaves no doubt military assets were offered and ready to go, and awaiting State Department signoff, which did not come,” Judicial Watch, a nonprofit government watchdog said in a statement.
