 Military Officers Replaced Under The Commander-in-Chief

 

” High-ranking officers in the United States military are being replaced by the Obama administration and for a number of dubious reasons. The latest is General John Allen, who was embroiled in the Petraeus affair.

” What is the red thread connecting several of these cases? An NSA whisteblower (Edward Snowden is only one of four major NSA whistleblowers) Russel Tice claims that the domestic spy agency is wiretapping and carrying out surveillance on top military officers. Listen to his interview below:”

 

” Whether or not this is true, and it certainly seems the NSA has the capability to do this, it raises several questions about the manner that several high-ranking military officers were removed. Is there any manner of entrapment or blackmail being carried out on military officers, who subsequently refuse to testify openly and honestly over sensitive national security matters?

The deafening silence over who exactly issued the Benghazi “stand down order” that plausibly resulted in the deaths of two CIA servicemen (who also disobeyed stand down orders) and the reprisals against administration whistleblowers suggest that a thorough public investigation into such matters is of utmost importance. If the federal government is being abused to silence critics of the administration, or if it is being wielded against those who refuse to obey illegal and immoral acts, representative government demands not just investigation, but decisive action.”

POTENTIAL WITNESSES WHO MAY FACE ISSA’S OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE IN NEAR FUTURE

” Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, ended the Benghazi attack hearing on Wednesday by stating, “This hearing is closed. But this investigation is not over,” indicating more whistle blower Benghazi hearings are likely due in the future.

Following the appearance of State Department employees Gregory Hicks, Eric Nordstrom, and Mark Thompson at his hearing, Issa told reporters he is encouraging more whistle blowers who know anything about last September’s deadly Benghazi attack to step forward and talk to his Committee.

Issa told Breitbart News on Wednesday that the committee “reserves the right” to subpoena witnesses for future hearings. Issa would not specify who the Committee is currently looking to bring before its members, but a number of names have been mentioned over past weeks. The following witnesses could provide unique perspectives into what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 as well as the administration’s explanation of it immediately afterward.

Hillary Clinton

General Carter Ham 

Cheryl Mills  

Leon Panetta

Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy

Beth Jones

General David Petraeus

Victoria Nuland  

Ben Rhodes

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice 

” Finally, below are individuals Hicks named in his testimony who are part of the U.S. Mission Libya staff. It will not be a surprise if someone on this list also appears before Congress to discuss what they know about the Benghazi attack and the administration’s attempt to explain itself afterward.

 

 

Regional Security Officer (Benghazi) – Alec Henderson

Regional Security Officer (Tripoli) – John Martinec

Ambassador Stevens’ Agent in Charge – Scott Wickland

Political Section Chief – David McFarland

Embassy Tripoli Nurse – Jackie Levesque

Management Officer – Allen Greenfield

Lieutenant Colonel Phillips

Lieutenant Colonel Arnt

Lieutenant Colonel Gibson

Mark Si (Team Tripoli)”

 

 

 

     It seems to us that if the truth is to be found , all of the above-mentioned “civil-servants” , each of whom certainly has first-hand knowledge of value to the investigation , should be required to testify under oath .

   The public deserves the truth from OUR employees . The families of Christopher Stevens , Sean Smith , Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods deserve nothing less from their government .

Obama to nominate Army Gen. Rodriguez to lead AFRICOM

  ” WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command and Marine Lt. Gen. John Paxton to succeed Gen. Joseph Dunford as assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Thursday.

Both appointments must be confirmed by the Senate.

Rodriguez is the commander of U.S. Army Forces Command and has served in a “variety of key leadership roles on the battlefield,” Panetta said.

He’s “a proven leader” who oversaw coalition and Afghan forces during the surge in Afghanistan, and “was the key architect of the successful campaign plan that we are now implementing,” Panetta said.

In announcing Ham’s successor, Panetta also praised the work Ham has done with Africa Command.

“Gen. Ham has really brought AFRICOM into a very pivotal role in that challenging region,” Panetta said. “I and the nation are deeply grateful for his outstanding service.” ”

Interesting Rumor Concerning General Carter Ham and Stand Down Order

image

” The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received
requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and
communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.

    General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move
to respond, his second in command
apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command. The story continues that now General
Rodiguez would take GeneralHam’s place as the head of Africon. ”
