My friend Chip Jones has a bombshell today:
Confidential sources close to Conservative Report have confirmed that Valerie Jarrett was the key decision-maker for the administration on the night of the Benghazi terrorist attack on 9/11/2012.
Jones’ story reports that relief was available not waiting in Europe for the call but on the tarmac of Tripoli:
Had the C-130 Spooky been on station, over the CIA Annex in Benghazi, moments before the mortar rounds were fired, the entire outcome of the Benghazi fiasco would have been different.
Add to that, a team of Green Berets on the ground to secure and/or evacuate the Annex, and the outcome would have been two SEALS still alive, and a mess of dead terrorists.
Now even though those assets were in Tripoli they are restricted in their use by “Cross Border Authority”
To initiate offensive military operations in a foreign country, law requires a Presidential order commonly referred to a Cross Border Authority or CBA. In the absence of cross border authority being granted directly by the President, no military operation could be initiated, including the commitment of troops to secure or rescue personnel from Special Mission Benghazi.
President Obama’s failure to issue Cross Border Authority allowing our men to die is bad but if it wasn’t him making the decision it’s worse
the decision not to take action was made by a person, to whom the people did not elect to give such authority to, nor did Congress even have confirmation power over.
The military-order, not to initiate action, saving our men in Benghazi, was issued by the President’s Advisor, Valerie Jarrett.
Combine this with the latest from CNN
Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.
CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy agency’s Benghazi secrets from ever leaking out.
and the whole “Phony scandal” Meme continues to melt away.
Update: Mike Rogers reminds us of some history
Turns out that Valerie Jarrett is so cautious about letting Little Barry get into hot water, that she alone vetoed the raid in January, February, and March, with the result that Obama’s indecision coupled with Jarrett’s caution drove Panetta and the military planners underground to work out the details without all the second-guessing – here’s an excerpt:
When the president consulted with the CIA director or the secretary of defense, he often seemed to be “playing for time”, canceling meetings with senior officials that would require him to make decisions or abruptly walking out midway through conferences with his senior advisors, cabinet secretaries and military officers.
When Obama walked out, he would wander the White House in search of Jarrett. If she had been in the meeting with him, he would signal for her to join him. Her advice and reassurance was critical, as always.
This suggests the actions in Benghazi are consistent with previous behavior.
