Did Barack Hussein Obama fire General Ham of Africom for trying to disobey his order NOT to rescue Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi?

Pat Dollard is reporting a still unconfirmed rumor that bears further investigation. The story is about General Ham mentioned by Leon Panetta in the quote below.

“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place,” Panetta told Pentagon reporters. “And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”

Pat Dollard The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had the unit ready.

General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. 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. The story continues that now General Rodiguez would take General Ham’s place as the head of Africon.

“President Barack Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command.”

Lt. Col Tony Shaffer: “My sources tell me Obama was in the room watching the Benghazi attack in real time.”

RightScoop  Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said his sources tell him that Obama was in the room watching the Benghazi attack go down and both he and Col. David Hunt agree it would have taken an order by the president to intervene. Further, Col. Hunt said that we were only 20 min away by jet and a couple of hours away by AC-130 gunships and special forces, and the decision not to intervene had to be political.

  1. so.BHO would have let 30 Americans working for the People Of the USA (not his Highness ) die so he could say that his brother OBL was dead and Al Quida was on the run . Now that’s a real leader ! right down the shit hole!

  2. Congress. Where are you? There is enough done to even imprison those responsible for allowin those at the Embassy to be slaughtered with nary a concern.

  3. I hope for a Col. North to appear. General Ham can be that person. Standing up for the Constitution and the people, not just the Enemy within.

  4. I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but it seems to me that the “O” administration has been on a campaign of emasculating our military now for four years by getting rid of competent generals and propagandizing the entire military. This is truly frightening.
    And, as I’ve been saying for four years, nobody is going to protect you from Islam. When the OA won’t even protect its own ambassador from the death cult of Islam, what the hell do you think they’re going to do for us serfs and peasants? Learn to protect yourselves in armed and unarmed combat. Start today.
    Islam is poison.

  5. It is past time to prepare for an investigation and prosecution for treason. We can investigate now, and prosecute when obama is out of office. We should openly push mention of this plan everywhere….Spread the word everywhere.

  6. lest people forget he had no problem sending jets to help the islamists and his new found friends or maybe his old friends? in the muslim brotherhood. but he rejects calls for help from Americans and people will still vote for him, crazy ,

  7. When you don’t know what’s going on, you use your Reconnaissance unit! Where were all the toys the military has spent BILLIONS of dollars on, the ones that can snoop on an enemy without being seen? Of course, if the president, pro tem, didn’t believe his own ambassador, why would he believe ANYONE else?

  8. This president is absolutely diabolical.

    How ANYONE could watch this nightmare unfold in real time and not deploy troops has to be cold hearted and ruthless.
    Obama has so much blood on his hands, it’s sickening. He is a man devoid of shame and that he (and hillary) could lie so effortlessly, is beyond comprehension!

    Dictator Obama’s agenda is absolute power, chaos in America and instability throughout the world. I think he has achieved all of these.

    The king MUST be dethroned.

  9. what ‘s changed four years ago we knew what was going to happen ! this peice of shit has lived up to everything ! if America votes him in again this country will not hold together the rift is to wide .

  10. There is evidence now that a AC130U was on station and Obama told them to stand down. That was the reason the target was being painted by the Seal with the Laser Designator: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/10/27/U-S-Had-Two-Drones-AC-130-Gunship-and-Targets-Painted-In-Benghazi-But-Obama-Didn-t-Pull-The-Trigger

  11. There aren’t many levels between a 4-Star & the Oval. So that answers a lot of questions. The Chief Muzzie Dictator Wannabe has a lot of American blood on his hands. I just saw a brain-dead Dem arguing with Chris Wallace about Benghazi. He wouldn’t shut up, kept talking over Wallace, yada-yada, & I actually found myself screaming ‘SHUT UP!!!’ at the telelvision. When they don’t have a cogent reply, pro or con, they just try to talk over the other person, ad nauseam.

  12. This whole story from beginning to end is absolutely disgusting, and I hope to my good Lord that his hand meters out this Obozo’s just desserts and soon!

  13. it is time to consider removing these “scumbags” with something other than voting and appointing !!! these “scum are “treasonious to the point of “rope and a tall tree !!!!!!!

  14. IF HAM was going after our people G-D bless him, and if Rodiguez did not go after our AMERICAN PEOPLE, MAY his god have mercy on his soul, he is a traitor…

  15. If the Romney has his wits about him and the courage of his convictions he will take this information to the American public and assure the election. If he wavers as Obama did instead of saving the ambassador and his men, then both candidates are guilty of cowardice and indecision and America becomes the loser.

    • Andy, this report has not yet been confirmed. But I’ve heard directly from the Romney campaign that they are investigating at least one of the stories I posted here and was reassured that Romney is on top of it.

  16. This guy asks some good questions.

    Obama, Where the H– Were the Marines?

    Published: Thursday, October 25, 2012 4:47 PM

    Some tough questions for the president that the Senator asked at an appearance in New Hampshire several days ago

    U.S. Senator Dr. Rand Paul
    Randal Howard “Rand” Paul (born January 7, 1963) is the junior (Rep.) United States Senator for Kentucky. He is an opthalmic surgeon who has done much to improve eye care in his home state.

    I have some questions and you get presidential candidates up here, so I want you to ask the President this when he comes up here: Where the hell were the Marines?
    In Libya, where were the Marines?
    There were no uniformed Marines guarding our ambassador?
    Where do you think the most dangerous embassy in the world is? It’s got to be Libya or Iraq.
    In Iraq, I think they’ve got 17,000 people guarding the ambassador. They’re not all Marines, but there’s probably several hundred Marines, but there’s a host of armed people guarding the ambassador. We have a fortress guarding the ambassador there.
    We didn’t have any uniformed Marines? There was personnel, a 16-person security team.
    If the President comes up here, ask him: Why in the hell did you send them home? They specifically requested to stay.
    Col. Wood, who is head of the security team, says he sent the cables: I want to stay in Libya because it’s unsafe and the ambassador is unsafe.
    The President says the buck stops here, ask him where in the hell were the Marines? Ask him, where the hell was that 16-person security team?
    And then finally ask him: What happened to the plane? There was a DC-3 there supposed to be able to help people out of the country or to move about the country, they took their plane.
    They took their plane on May 4 of this year. You know what happened on May 8 of this year, four days later? The State Department spent $108,000 buying a new electrical charging station to green up the Vienna embassy.
    So you have to ask yourself, is the green initiative, is the global warming campaign, more important than the security of an embassy?
    Greening up the Vienna Embassy. You know, the electric car, it’s subsidized $250,000 per car. We probably spent $1 million to buy these electric cars to make a political statement in Vienna.
    We spent $100,000 for an electrical charging station to show off how green we were, but we wouldn’t have one Marine guarding our embassy, we wouldn’t allow 16 personnel to stay in Libya, we wouldn’t allow them a plane, but we’ve got enough money to make a show of a very politicized agenda by the President.
    I think it’s inexcusable and if he says the buck stops here, someone should be fired.

    This article also appeared in the Washington Times and on the Senator’s blog.

  17. If Panetta’s statement were really true, there would be no troops at all in any part of the middle east. And if that statement were true they would not prevent our military from having live ammo.

  18. How could anyone sit there and watch and these heroes died and do nothing when you had the power to help? I wonder if he will feel safe after he has thrown everyone under the bus?

  19. I can guarantee you that Obama is making ZERO friends in the military, and one of these days,if he’s not already gone, he wilsl feel the wraith,.

    • The sad truth is that Obama does not CARE as to whether he has many or any friends in the military!!!

      He’s almost certainly relying on those few he DOES have who are “Democrats” (especially if they’re black), and even more on his pals the Moslem terrorists of Iran, the Taliban and their Al-Qaeda brethren plus the Communists in the UN coming from Cuba, Venezuela, Mexico, Ecuador, Bolivia and perhaps even North Korea.

      It’s not out of the bounds of reason to even think that he’s counting upon China and/or Russia to do some great evil…

  20. Bottom line here is that Obama and Panetta are just a couple —–ing cowards, Obama sitting and watching those Americans get killed and doing nothing because he was afraid it might harm his chances of reelection, and Panetta for being a general all-around worthless ass kissing bureaucrat that just wants to keep his position on the Cabinet of the sorriest —-ing excuse for a president this country has EVER had, the distinguished Arselifter-in-Chief!! Well, guess what a–holes, Obama and Panetta that is,in less than two weeks now, WE THE PEOPLE will have our say, and we say GTFO of the White House and out of DC….even better, OUT OF this nation!!!

  21. If this is the truth I hope he comes forward to tell the public what really happened, cause as it stands know I have NO respect for the higher ups in the military. COWARDS.

    • BW
      i agree wholeheartedly with that one. i think panetta is a pansy. and i wondeer if he has held any kind of military rank?

    • The obligation of our oaths should dictate our conduct; if the person acting as CIC is not in compliance with his oath, then any power granted by the Constitution to the CIC no longer applies since he has made himself an enemy of the Constitution.

      Contrary to what the corrupt chain of command may say, the Constitution itself is the supreme authority of the United States of America. Only those officials in compliance with the terms of their oaths, issuing lawful orders in pursuance thereof, should have any authority to issue commands to our troops.

      • He does not believe in the constitution, but to let american die is immoral, but he does not have a conscience. He doesn’t want any killing of fellow Islamists reason for not giving the order for assistance to go into save Stevens and the others. If you have watched, over time orders/actions are limited against Islamists even it costs american lives at any time. He should be removed from office just based on the fact he would not come to Stevens and the others 3 americans aid.
