‘Spinning up as we speak’: Email shows Pentagon was ready to roll as Benghazi attack occurred

Just as a reminder:

From back in December, 2015, Fox News:  http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/12/08/spinning-up-as-speak-email-shows-pentagon-was-ready-to-roll-as-benghazi-attack.html

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.”

” … we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.”

– Jeremy Bash, Pentagon chief of staff

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.

    Chris Stevens couldn’t trust his own administration, including Clinton, to be there and help him in his greatest hour of need. Repeatedly denied extra security in an area of the world that was getting increasingly more and more dangerous. Then, left to the wolves. Now, I’m still unsure of Trump. However, it begs the question, how do you think the rest of us will fair under her leadership? I’ll readily admit, im just a regular guy. I’m not a former navy seal. Although I tried several times to get into the military, (I was a knucklehead growing up) and grew up around it, I have little training. It doesn’t inspire a whole lot of confidence at all. Especially after all the lies.
    Debbie Wasswerman Schultz was immediately hired by her campaign after she left as the DNC chair. Is this not proof positive of how corrupt she, and the people she surrounds herself with, truly are? Again, I’m still unsure of Trump. But I don’t see him wanting to exponentially increase the refugee population. The way I see it, the enemy is at the gates, and Clinton wants to let them flood in. This is insane.

    This thing stunk from the beginning. We seem to be dancing around a very basic truth. It does not matter “How Long” they thought the battle would last, or “How Intense” it would be. It would be SOP to send in forces, if for no other reason than to secure the assets and information we had on the ground. We all know it, but never say it……

      Greg, I feel that you are correct. As soon as I saw this on the news and the term “CIA annex” was mentioned, I sensed that this would be another massive scandal regarding U.S. government’s arming of, (as well as their prior creation of), ISIS.
      There is this also: http://eaglerising.com/35550/emails-prove-hillary-transferring-heavy-weaponry-to-isis/

      Why America cannot make herself get the hell out of the middle east is a question all Americans should be asking of Congress. (You and I already know why, but the American people by and large have no clue, nor even any interest in asking the question, nor even any idea that a question might exist.) It is obvious that the military-industrial complex needs an “enemy”, and the Intelligence services (such as CIA, MOSSAD, MI-6, etc.) provoke and arm the “enemy” to perpetuate, in Gore Vidal’s words, “Perpetual War For Perpetual Peace”. Ron Paul was right — and the damned idiots in WDC scoffed at him. We are “over there”!

      Of interest to you and perhaps other readers is in another question I asked several years ago — What is a retired U.S. General doing riding around in an armed rebel convoy on the Syrian border? How do the “friendly rebels” get connected with Toyota, or with the manufacturers of military machineguns to mount in the beds of their neat little pick-up trucks? Check this one from Syria Tube
