What I have told you before has now been confirmed by Martin Dempsey, chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff. A shocking admission that on the night of the attack, C-110, the special ops force trained in operations exactly like Benghazi, was mysteriously transferred from the military’s European command to AFRICOM, or the United States Africa Command.
Dempsey was unable to explain this and his evasive answers and outright lies had to be drug out of him as he testified in front of a Senate hearing on Wednesday. Besides the fact that he couldn’t account for the transfer of assignments, he also said the C-110 force was training in Bosnia. Upon further grilling, he admitted they were in Croatia.
When it was pointed out that estimates were that they could have reached Benghazi in 4 to 6 hours, Dempsey, denied it, saying that even if they were in the plane and on the tarmac it would take more than 6 hours. From the farthest point in Croatia to Benghazi is 2 1/2 hours from Benghazi, even by a commercial aircraft, let alone a high speed military craft.
Dempsey further stated that on the night of the attack, C-110 was ordered to prepare to return to Germany, their normal base of operations. Gregory Hicks had testified that he was originally expecting help and then was told later that the closest help was in Aviano, Italy, 1044 miles away. Croatia is a little over 900 miles away.
The C-110 force is a specially trained, quick deployment force of forty men, who are trained to deploy to hot spots at a moment’s notice. I smell a rat.
