I can’t say this news is surprising, considering the documented reports we have of terrorists acting as security for our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, but reports are now coming out that the jihadists who attacked the mission in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, had insider knowledge. To top that off, calls for more security, as well as calls that night for help were all ignored by the Obama administration.
Fox News reports:
The terrorists who attacked the Benghazi consulate last year knew the location of the safe room where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his security team sought shelter, according to a congressman who spoke for 90 minutes with the diplomatic security agent severely injured in the assault.
“He confirmed this – that it was a very well orchestrated, and well organized, almost a military operation, using military weapons and using military signals,” the late Florida Rep. Bill Young said after meeting diplomatic security agent David Ubben at Walter Reed Medical Center last summer, when both were patients there.
Young died in mid-October, but his wife Beverly allowed Fox to print her husband’s comments about the attacks on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya.
“He (Ubben) emphasized the fact that it was a very, very military type of operation they had knowledge of almost everything in the compound,” Young explained. “They knew where the gasoline was, they knew where the generators were, they knew where the safe room was, they knew more than they should have about that compound.”
According to Fox, “Ubben was severely injured defending the CIA Annex when mortar fire rained down on the rooftop, killing former Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty and severely injuring a third CIA contractor who was interviewed by the House Intelligence committee Thursday. After multiple surgeries, a source close to the contractor confirmed he has not regained the full use of his arm.”
Young also told Fox that Ubben believed that the jihadists had performed reconnaissance and had inside information. “Yes he (Ubben) did…It was pretty well figured out, where everything was, where the doors were located, where the safe room was – the whole thing,” Young said.
“…… it was a very, very military type of operation they had knowledge of almost everything in the compound,” Young explained. “They knew where the gasoline was, they knew where the generators were, they knew where the safe room was, they knew more than they should have about that compound.”
David Ubben was the diplomatic security agent who recovered the body of Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, from the burning building that was attacked.
“He was pretty sure Sean was dead when he pulled him, but he felt like he had to recover him anyway and get him out. He would have done the same for the ambassador but he wasn’t really sure where the ambassador was,” Young said.
Young added, “I think he is an awfully sincere young guy. And I think he is a real hero for what he did that night…He did something he didn’t have to do, put his life in danger, and we know he was seriously injured. He took major injuries (that) came from the mortar that landed on the roof that killed the other two.”
We know that the Obama administration knew there were concerns and pleas for additional security in Benghazi. We know that all was denied.
We also know that members of special forces were in the area, told the White House they were under attack several times, requested backup numerous times and the Obama administration would not provide it. Instead, he provided a stand down order.
Instead of being concerned about Americans, Barack Obama went to bed and slept while they were murdered (which in my mind makes him complicit in their murder). He then got up and caught a flight to Vegas to campaign. He would then tell the American people that the problem was not with Islam and jihadists, but rather with the First Amendment as he sicked his attack dogs on a Coptic Christian, who made an anti-Islam film that had absolutely nothing to do with Benghazi.
It has been over a year, and to date, the Obama administration has not brought one person to justice nor has anyone been held accountable.
