Painted targets / missing aircraft: Way too many un-answered questions with #Benghazi.

Often, you may garner more information from the comments sections than the actual articles. Some come from those “In the know” as well.

I troll some closed boards so don’t get frustrated. I wanted to include where this information came from.

One thing certain, SEAL does not waste time painting a target unless he thinks it will be hit as it will expose his position and those batteries do not last too long.

The timelines conflict and the accounts are not working for me either. It leaves more questions than answers.

“Rather than get stuck in the traffic, the agents careen their car over the median — there is a median, a grassy median — and into the opposing traffic, and they go counter-flow until they emerge into a more lightly trafficked area and ultimately make their way to the annex.”


Obama Did Not Deny Requests For Help In Benghazi: Aide – 

Was Benghazi Attack on U.S. Consulate an Inside Job?
“Who’s in charge? No one really knows. “That’s a million-dollar question,” admits an adviser to Deputy Prime Minister Mustafa Abushugar. Accompanied by aides, he turns and asks them who’s now formally heading the probe. Debate ensues and it is hazarded that the attorney general might be in charge.”


CIA Rapid Response Team told to STAND DOWN 


“An LTD (Laser Target Designator) is somewhat similar to a non-directional ground beacon (NDB) which aviators use for guidance. The NDB transmits a radio frequency signal whether aircraft are present or not. The LTD “paints” or lases a target directionally, for weapons and targeting systems (which have on-board laser acquisition devices) to identify and vector toward. As long as your LTD batteries are up, you can’t paint all day long. I hope this is helpful.”


“Jeff is correct (about lasing without air asset) but the only reason you would do that is to determine a specific grid for indirect fire which the SEAL did not have available. You are in an active firefight against mortars and MGs; there is only one reason to cease returning fire and paint a target and it ain’t because you thought it was a good time to pull a PMCS on your f******g GLD.””

“…the QRF will go if ordered, no matter the threat. It is incumbent on the forces on the ground to realize the position they are in and understand the cost to others for their rescue and the leadership to protect those that will fly blindly into battle on honor alone. As someone who has sat in both seats, it is discussed and both sides, the commanders and those being extracted do get a vote. “


“The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship,”


“From the retired Delta operator:

Having spent a good bit of time nursing a GLD (ground Laser Designator) in several garden spots around the world, something from the report jumped out at me.

One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a briefing pointer laser. You do not “paint” a target until the weapons system/designator is synched; which means that the AC130 was on station.

Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on information directly from the target area.

If the AC130 never left Sigonella (as Penetta says) that means that the Predator that was filming the whole thing was armed.

If that SEAL was actively “painting” a target; something was on station to engage! And the decision to stand down goes directly to POTUS!”


“My son violated his orders in order to protect the lives of at least 30 people. He risked his life to be a hero. I wish that the leadership in the White House had the same moral courage that my son displayed with his life.”


“In the end, it’s going to take declassified traffic or satcom transcipts to end the debate. Next thing you know, someone will post, “We had a package sitting on strip alert, waiting to go. They could havè inserted, achieved fire superiority, and wasted everyone of those jihadist bastards.” It’s easy to call for folks’ heads when a military response/rescue neither failed or succeeded. The same critics would have likely turned right around to criticize a headlong rush to action if the CEF had a calamity occured on insert, or an AC-130 was shot down (has Blackfive updated its reporting of a lack of AC-130 platform in the AO?)”


a command “in paper only”…repower/print/

“A military source familiar with the eight-hour Benghazi firefight provided this timeline to The Washington Times to answer the most central question surrounding the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans: Why did the U.S. military take no direct action to stop the two terrorists assaults? […] But on Sept. 11, AfriCom was still a command “in paper only,” as one former Bush administration official put it.

The military source told The Times, “AfriCom has very few assigned forces.”

Gen. Ham lacked what is called a commander in-extremis force, which other combatant forces have set up to respond to crises such as Benghazi. He also lacked the assets to assemble a generic quick-reaction force.

As a result, the four-star general turned to a national response force in the United States on call 24 hours a day. He worked through the European Command to tab its commander in-extremis force. This unit was conducting training in Central Europe. It had to be briefed on the mission and taken to an airfield, a process that took hours. The national and European strike forces finally arrived in Sigonella air base in Sicily on Sept. 12.

“They both had something in common,” the military source said. “When they both arrived on the 12th, the evacuation of the CIA base had already been completed.”

As the two units flew to Sicily, Gen. Ham, a combat veteran of the Iraq War, looked at other options and saw few. He had no AC-130 gunships, which can be effective in urban combat by isolating and firing on enemy targets. He also had no armed drones such as the missile-carrying Predator that can strike a gunman precisely.”

“If it’s true that GEN Ham had no In-Extremis Force, or any other response capability… then why was he even in the chain of command?”


“…Gen. Ham, monitoring the Sept. 11-12 attacks in Benghazi, had only one real option to intervene directly: F-16s stationed at Aviano Air Base, across the Mediterranean in Italy.”

I also failed to mention this earlier:

“Four hours later, the attack is renewed, and while the mortars aren’t “painted” with lasers, some of the attackers are — as “warnings not to fire.” Three mortar shells then hit the roof, killing Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.”

It is still in the Discovery process.

11-09-12 – “Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is telling Congress that the military did not have armed aircraft near Libya that could have helped defend against the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.” 

It sounds to me that ALLCON did all they had with what they had, minus an F-16.

My take, POTUS and Staff watched their friends die and there was nothing they could do about it. I remember Hillary looking devastated.

Now, more has been presented but I am under the gun with time so will post later. Still in Discovery.

The Democrat party is really only a play on words.

When you are not allowing us to clean our voter rolls, you are dis-enfranchising US of our vote. I am talking to you Eric Holder, you low life scumbag in the DOJ.

You WILL allow states to purge the voter rolls. You will allow states to require identification to vote.  You WILL allow states to protect their borders with Mexico.You WILL count the absentee ballots of Our deployed Soldiers. Do you understand asshole?

Cheating the ballot process is something the “Democrat” party does best. It’s all about power, all the time. I cannot see anyone with any integrity voting for that fucked up party. You do this every election – ballot stuffing, picking count, discounting absentee ballots. You make me sick – All of you.

It is a monumental failure of intelligence letting you scumbags do this every election. I could continue with how evil you people are and why but I will refrain … for now.


You complain about Florida and there rolls when that stupid idiot Gore lost there – and trust me, you did it to yourself. Now look who is voting.

The erosion of Institutional structure and it’s only getting worse from here.

There are probably few souls out there who dis-agree that military spending must be cut. Few also know that it is the only spending that is getting cut, and it is getting cut hard. A cut is not a thousand paper cuts, that’s just cruel:

“Why should I keep on bleeding myself and my family dry on MQT, CMR, FMC, UTE, RAP, FLUG, DTS, TDYs, OPRs, ATSO, SARC, CBTs, AT/FP, IA/IP, UCIs, SORTS,OREs, ORIs, AEFs, IPUG, BMC, when in the end nothing that I do seems to matter? To put it another way, why should I put service before self when my Chief is systematically dismantling my service? To use a perhaps appropriately joint analogy, I’m a strong swimmer – so why stay aboard a ship whose captain is running it aground?”

“O’Captain, My Captain, there are four icebergs and one in each direction”
“Full speed ahead!”
“Which heading my Captain?”


POTUS, do you have any idea how difficult it is to build a Professional Military and keep it? What happens when you try to rebuild it during a war? Do you know the half assed nature of your witless Flag Officers and how pathetic they have become?

Do you understand the ramifications of this – the biggest purge of all of our Federal services since Roosevelt? Do ANY of you understand what this leads too?

You are going to get very many people killed around here (And Elsewhere). It will take years to rectify this that you have done. Naval Officers talking bio-fuel pipedreams for Naval engagements of the future where no bio-fuel is.

Flag Officers speaking of war-gaming as “Anti-this or that”. War gaming is what Officers do. What do I need a Flag Officer for if he refuses to do it because it is “Abhorrent”? Talk to Lee in your inner Soul if you have one. Talk to Patton. Talk to George Washington or Lincoln for fucks sakes. Talk to GOD. What is correct is the Oath you took and if you look hard enough, you will it’s purpose.

A Military is only an evil tool if you have idiots running it, and it is evil more to it’s own Soldiers by the lack of virtue you show in the respect for their positions on the battlefield.

This is not a leak the WhiteHouse made that will get people killed. This is an Airforce Tradition that gets people saved. You had better not go after them.

I Am losing a perfectly good Nation right here, and I do not know if the Gideon is worth following.

Less demand on goods raises their prices and makes them more sparse. There is inflation currently but it is was masked by cheaper oil prices. Wait until these commodities meet demand. This is going to be a train wreck, I assure you.

Just a few will be able to get on a plane and leave this place when it is all said and done – after they have wrecked it totally.

Hopefully the lawmakers will be trapped here with the rest of us.

To what ends?

There is a of lack of planning in all the lawfare being forced out of the executive branch. The President should not stand his position, authority, and rights in how he chooses to Govern. There is a specific job he is supposed to do, and has tended poorly to the true responsibilities and priorities of that office.

There is no presedent of neccessity for any of it and it is un-invited.

The methods of oversight must be confused because I still do not see where you are taking US with all of this. Every environment is turmultious. There is no use of planning…. anything.
No one is going to want to invest crap here. The political dynamic surrounding this “Central Planning” has Incompatible interests with what they are supposed to be providing.

When the bureaucracy out numbers the elect, there is no incintive to change.
May as well just get rid of the states entirely if every state issue is now a Federal one.
May as well directly elect the dip-shit dictator like every other banana republic or 3rd rate state of degeneracy .

Do people want to live in a state of constant lawfare and regulation? Would you like this government make you un-educated robots?
The dissipating sanity of the electorate has already elected us Inflexable Bureaucracy and to check this power is paramount to not turning this country into hell on earth.

No progress will be made until the destruction of these American institutions cease.

Where was the Watch on Concordia?

Leaders must stand during disasters, even if they created it. A Captain has been accused of Manslaughter. This thing from front to end strikes me as a poor leadership and complacency. Court is not in session yet, but there is much to learn from this thing…. whatever it is.

“Theres some important issue here. If the captain set the course and the officer of the watch was NOT allowed to deviate from it even if he suspected that it was dangerous THEN this goes against everything I was trained to do as a navigating cadet when I was on tankers many moons ago. In my days we had no sat nav so the responsbility was clearly with the officer of the watch….period. Now if I read this correctly what the article is saying is that sat navs systems are pre set by the captain and no deviation is allowed……If thats right then this is a technology assisted collision where responsbility has shifted away from the officer of the watch. If its true this is how its happened then this will happen again..”

The US Government has turned into a piece of shit, and it’s “leaders” nothing more than pirates. There is no good future because of it.

And you people that have elected this leviathan, YOU SUCK. I don’t trust you either. You little idiots that feel you have the right to secede my authority to this piece of shit government piss me off the most. Since when is using the government as a charity more of a moral value than any of the Ten Commandments?

One thing worse than making a government take care of people is one that does it for their own good – and then will not let them take care of themselves. What are you people? Masochists? More like Psychopaths.

You are building a Fascist system of government which will turn to an Oligarchy filled with unionized Socialist elite un-elected bureaucrats that think we are too stupid to manage our own affairs. And they will jam their man-made law down your throats, and you like this?

The problem with democrats is not only that they are pure evil, but they put implicit trust into this piece of shit government to take over all aspects of our lives. In fact, Democrats vote for pirates to bankrupt this piece of shit government while at the same time making more promises to the stupid imbeciles that vote for it. These imbeciles really have no conversation to have with me. We walk contrary.

Like that little failure of a leader you elected, it is like having an 8TH grader run a nation with 316 million people in it. Bravo. Running around the country with his fake “jobs bill” and “raise taxes” to cover for the trillions he has pissed away in the name of “fairness” to thug unions and this useless NEA.

None of this means anything but political posturing for you idiots that “believe” in “hope and change”. The democrat party and it’s Orwellian newspeak is par for the course. Nothing the democrat party does actually helps anyone, it merely is a bunch of talk and pay-offs for their buddies. These guys elect demons. The democrat party is nothing BUT politics. 180 degrees in the wrong direction that we should be going. You never stopped being the party of slavery.

There is no civility and the opposite morals required to have a civilization.

Not even Rome had it like this. Forcing everyone to live under such a tyranny.

Save the Military, there really are no assets this government has worth it’s salt. Nothing but paperwork and bureaucrats. Useless to all of humanity, and a great big waste of Shekels.

I have never seen such ignorance. If the adults do not do something – if the elect do not do something, The next years may be hell on earth.

It needs to be purged.

The Elect should be ashamed.

When the only answer is to tax, no problems are being resolved #economy #tcot

The President must be held to account for his own policies. Destruction of economies should never be on any Executives “list of things to do”. The American Government and the American Economy are not toys to play with. They are systems that must be protected. A failure to do so will reduce the “revenues” the government may extract from the private sector ergo creating more debt through interest. The economy is upside down with the federal government riding US the people so hard with regulatory overburden and tax.

You may wonder why the market sucks right now, look at the dollar. And these fools are talking about a QE3. There will be no where to put money in. I hope you are prepared.

Thoughts on a #Palestinian state #israel – not so fast.

The referendum comes down to little more than these things:

An independent Palestine without conceding the legitimacy of Israel’s sovereignty; its capital in Jerusalem; and the entry of Palestinians who left the area in 1948–49 and their descendants into pre-1967 Israel with the rights of citizenship.

1. You are trying to form a state under a permanent state of war. That is not a state,  That is a function. That’s a no-go

2. Jerusalem belongs to, and always will belong to Israel.

3. Those who left Israel fled and were PAID for that land.

4. You do not even have a recognizable government. What’s the “agreement” with?

5. You are still firing rockets into Israel. Some correct history from Sultan and Read up on the current stunt

Mobs have no brains. The UK could use a speech from Mayor Nutter. #riots


Ahh the good old ultra-violence

I seem to recall that London is probably one of the dumbest places to riot. If ever there was a city where “Big Brother” is watching you, London is it. Funny that some people did not think it would be effective.

Alas, they were proven wrong as thousands were rounded up and taken to a full time Provost once their faces were identified. As for the rioters, many people question the cause for such depraved behavior, and some like the Mail Online answer just that.  It seems that the conditions were not actually that bad.

At least the rioters would steal themselves some stylish sneakers on their way to steal their Ipods and flat screen TV’s but left the food and books alone. Hence, the riots were not actually about poverty but the fact that a kid was gunned down by the Police. The oppertunity presented itself and the kids streamed out of mommies basement into the street to bust up the quickie marts. The “Youths” in the UK have always seemed kind of on edge.

Here in the US, we sometimes have similar situations. Philadelphia’s mayor Michael Nutter confronted such a condition with class, maturity, and common sense. I am not one to adulate Democrats in general, but I was impressed with this guys speech.

There is a reason I dislike the liberal mantra is they bear false witness, teach people to covet, and use the government to steal. Once such an attitude is implanted in young minds, it is difficult to reverse. The “victim mentality” takes root.

I often wonder why politicians believe this mentality will help them in their Un-Godly quest for power. In another universe, I would think it wise to educate your children to become self sufficient and moral in their quest. It is easier to manage self governing individuals than un-ruly mobs.

Just Sayin.

Lack of funding is never, ever a reason to not educate your Children

Lack of #Education is the reason the world is in such a sorry state in these days. It is a crime to keep your people un-educated. Since the Department of Education was founded, test scores of the students and the value of proficiency has dropped precipitously. The kids are often more stupid having finished a four year degree than if they had not gone in the first place.

The K-12 is the most important part of our educational system and it has failed miserably. Why do we filter tax money to the federal government only to have it stolen by paper pushers, and then sent back to the states? That the biggest problem with the “Government”. It’s an extortion racket. I can think of many departments that need to DIE but I digress. I will list that simple exercise on a later date.

The “Higher” education default rate is nearing record. The K-12 is very expensive and delivers less than mediocre results. If there is ever a budget shortfall, the answer for the colleges are to raise tuition.

Government schools suck – plain and simple. It’s all about the unions, the asses that work for the unions, and the tenure. And if you need proof that the schools suck, just look at our elected representatives.

They abuse their power, and it shows. Give all the kids vouchers and let the parents choose the schools. Enough of this forced dumb-factory already.

They are so busy trying to give everybody everything that no one will get anything. #economy #collapse

Happy tax day. I wonder if you think about signing your name on the dotted line so you incriminate yourself if you forgot to disclose something. What is tax day anyways? A game of memory?

You know, one day soon, you will stick your little debit card in a machine and nothing will come out. Want to know why?

If you think the government is “taking care” of you, the poor, disabled, and elderly, you are sadly mistaken and I will tell you why.

America holds the worlds reserve currency and is de-valuing it on a daily basis. To the amount of $16 Billion a week. This is why fuel and food prices are rising world wide. Rising fuel prices also hits the economy creating unemployment. Much of the instability you see in the middle east is for this very reason, Food Prices up dramatically in the last year alone. They will continue to rise and there will be nothing anyone will be able to do about it – they are hurting the poor the most.

Monetizing currency creates inflation which causes fuel prices to rise which in turn adds more inflation. Seeing as how we refuse to drill for our own natural energy, they will increase even more. This situation alone is a spiraling, China will not be able to afford our debt, and the bond market will collapse as we are way past endgame now.  The shelves will be bare, fuel will be too expensive to drive to the store, and you will hold worthless currency. Right in time for a wheat shortage.

The fundamental problem at the forefront is you cannot monetize production, you cannot “control” it,  and you may not spend monitized currency to keep it. For with dropping revenue, you may not even support a months worth of work.

Government does no good at keeping your basic necessities available and affordable but they sure are good at making new complex programs and bankrupting them.

The US government now takes and wastes more money than Americans could ever produce. The federal government now must borrow money just to operate basic services. This will end one day very soon.  The narrative in the nations capitol is you belong to them. They regulate every aspect of your being and may take anything they want from you.

When government is more important than your Family, their property, their education, and Liberty, than America is no longer a free Republic. It is now indentured servitude. Government is so very hard to remove from your life – It will take everything from you.

Every federal government program is a draconian throwback to the past with no imagination or efficiency. The US federal government has become a parasite accountable only to hucksters, scammers, suckers, and baiters. It is pwned by the unions and government workers. Government takes care of government.

You have elected yourselves a very dense King that maintains foolish and childish notions of equality. He is unable to even do 8th grade math. This country could collapse under his term, as it should. After-all, 1+1= 13. Right?

All of your collegiate studies will mean nothing in a collapsed economy. What will be is very basic humanity in turmolt. I mean really? whats the use? As one economist put it during the $33 Billion spending cut fiasco “It’s like watching them squabble over who is going to pay for the drinks on the Titanic”

You have less than a year to correct course of this “unsinkable” ship or the USA will collapse, and is already taking the World with it.

A quip on leadership, and the lack thereof, and #POTUS from hell.

Imagine a king in any time in history that refused to pay his Armies during a war. Imagine that Kings fate.

Luckily for our President, we have the most professional Military in history. Try this with Roman Soldiers back in the day, they would have him shanked on day one.

So much for being non-partisan on this barely read space on the internet.

Regular government workers have the opportunity to seek other employment while they live with their families. Even welfare recipients will be paid. Yet, if you are a Soldier fighting the barbarians from hell in three wars right now, you are stuck in a screwed up dangerous country, fighting. While getting shot at, you are worring about your mortgage, kids, and car insurance. You have no way to leave the country or to find another way to support yourself.

No bargaining rights for these guys. Stuck under UCMJ -desertion is a crime.

Our President is Pure Evil.


04/09 P.S.  DFAS is the most screwed up bureaucratic in the screwed up Federal Government. I HATE THEM>. They will screw up paychecks on purpose for months to come for our Military because thats just how it goes. If you think it’s a simple week of pay, you are a foolish idiot.

The curse of failed systems and it’s stench on civilization.

Consistently making poor decisions leads to an anemic “operating system” called Government. Untenable. Our political appointees build programs on top of programs creating bigger problems than the programs were meant to fix.

Manufacturing crises and pretending to solve them with draconian measures.

There are many “models” that will fail no matter what is tried. Our femoral artery is gushing blood, and the government has proposed for a box of band-aids to fix it with.

The US is faced with leadership failure at all levels, as is the World. Tough decisions need to be made and actions carried out to get control of this leviathan. If not, happy collapse.

This must be dealt with. #UCMJ #US judge advocate general

Soldiers do not do this. This popped up last year and got sidelined. It is not behavior true Soldiers conduct. Needless to say, someone wanted to go over it again for whatever reason. Thats the part that makes the timing strange. Yet, there is no excuse for men under the US Military to be so savage, and this is very rare in our forces. Do not make me point to other countries forces. There are good and bad people everywhere.

Besides the fact that these foreign people are poor and scared or may be the guys that killed someone would not even elicit this kind of brutality and it most certainly is not Authorized by the UCMJ.

Our soldiers see plenty of their own also get murdered. As one quoted to me “Many of the people, in fact most you see killed deserve it; there are not too many innocent people there. Not all by far, but most”. It seemed quite crude at first look. I Am awares of the fact that targeting has been quite accurate as of late.

In any case, these kids were not on a strategic war path, they were being thugs and murdering whomever to satisfy I do not care what.

No US Soldier has the authority to abuse and murder anyone from any country in this context. Ever. And they ALL know it.

This is the most difficult case I have seen in the Military in my life, though we always expect awful things.

This is a lesson about power. Having it does not mean you use it. It means you become humble as power could overtake your whole being in every aspect. Power is powerful and it resonates both ways. Power is nasty. You should not hate it because you do not have any (so to speak), Hate it when others abuse it. Learn to look for it’s abuse.

There is a Hero kid story here by the way, and a good Father. The Military boards have been on fire over it until it was sidelined. No worries, we never forget.

Anyways, it is worth tracking.

And tracking we are. 06/24/11 – The photos seemed to mean more than the action. Testimony.

Many trials have been wrong with the military. I remember many. It is very difficult to find a charge against someone on the battlefield. One reason sometimes is “Hey, look! we are making progress” and ” We are warriors”. Yeah. Everyone smiles and then goes back into their shell looking for the next round. Conditioned so to speak. But if this was going about wasting time while wasting random people, that’s a big no no in these Armed Forces.

I have been caught up with popular support sometimes. But generating reason for it other than planned military targets makes it harder to accept.

Make it a fair trial please. Always be lenient with our cops.

Butcher’s budget here – When you are sinking, may as well eat until nothing is left for the Life boats.

The House, Senate, and President are playing wiffile ball on the top deck of the Titanic and wonder why this ball keeps getting lost in the wind. In time, the wind no longer blows the ball away from the players. Surely the ship has stopped. Surely you are lost – so they could be good at wiffle ball.

I view things the same way as the Tais.

Maybe I spoke too soon

I feel as if this entire nation is in a grade school classroom with crayons and crepe paper, drawing pictures with their imagination.

Real peoples bodies are not yet cold and the kids talk conjecture and pontificate.  The “Teacher” holds a pep rally at the memorial service.

No one is being taught the truth, and the after school specials are all fabiracated news which of course the kids believe.

It is an EPIC FAIL. You are disgusting people.

So, what’s it going to be?

Living “Green”, or status quota? These people cannot figure out how they want YOU to live.  Is there any clarity at all on how our “Government” really wants us to live? Where is the control of this “Government”? Who told them to tell US what to do? Who gave these people our consent? Check the insanity Here… It’s insipid.

The poor will certainly get poorer this year. CPI is only at.1? Thats BS and everyone knows it. Is it collapse time yet, or would you rather stop spending money?

Here is a little secret; For every dollar the government takes is a dollar that is not in the true economy. It is very difficult to gain confidence of people who want to employ people when you have no true economic plan and have to alter it every 4 months.

You spend no more. You cut now. This bill will either be paid or burned in a wastepaper basket before our Grand-children are born.

The LAW becomes as simplistic as possible, or it becomes useless and abusive. 9,000 pages of new ones, I cannot understand.

Simplicity is grandeur. Your stupid projects and experiments with government, not so much.
