More Benghazi Nonsense, Federal Government’s Bloody Hands Begin To Drip

May 6, 2013 by  

Gregory Hicks, deputy to murdered U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, told Congressional investigators recently that Special Forces were prepared to fly from Tripoli, Libya, to Benghazi to respond to the Sept. 11 terror attack, but were forbidden from doing so by U.S. Special Operations Command South Africa.

That runs contrary to the President Barack Obama Administration official narrative that nobody was ever told to stand down and that all available resources were used.

Furthermore, Hicks says that a simple flyover by Special Forces could have sent the Benghazi terrorists running, tails tucked.

“And so, in my personal opinion, a fast-mover flying over Benghazi at some point, you know, as soon as possible might very well have prevented some of the bad things that happened that night,” Hicks said, according to a transcript from interviews last month.

Though he acknowledged that the Libyan government would have had to give a go-ahead, he insisted that a flyover could have saved lives.

“I believe if we had been able to scramble a fighter or aircraft or two over Benghazi as quickly as possible after the attack commenced, I believe there would not have been a mortar attack on the annex in the morning because I believe the Libyans would have split,” he said. “They would have been scared to death that we would have gotten a laser on them and killed them.”
