SUBJECT: LIBYA
ALL EMPHASIS BELOW IS MINE.
STATE COLLEAGUES:
After consulting with General Dempsey, General Ham and the Joint Staff, we have identifiedthe forces that could move to Benghazi. they are spinning up as we speak. They include a SOF [Special Operaations Forces] element that was in Croatia (which can fly to Suda Bay, Crete), and a Marine FAST team out of Roda, Spain.
Assuming Principals agree to deploy these elements we will ask state to secure the approval from host nation. Please advise how you wish to convey that approval to us. Burni/Nides/Sherman to  Miller/Winnererfeld would be my recommendation.

Sheryl Attkisson, a noted investigative reporter, presents evidence that US Special Forces  were heading for Libya on September 11, 2012 and were refused permission to enter Libya. An email has now surfaced that raises serious questions. Watch the video below.

The troops were on their way. They only needed Obama's authorization to enter Libya. The State Department was supposed to notify the Libyans. Nothing happened.

Is it not interesting that the public has not seen any photos of Team Obama in action during this crisis? (According to the video, there is one shown at the early stages of the attack. Then everything goes black as far as Obama-and Hillary Clinton are concerned.)

Contrast that with this:

Remember that photo of  Obama looking out the White House window and agonizing over his decision to kill Bin Laden? (I couldn't find it, but we've all seen it.)

The video also says that US forces are stationed in Southern Europe like fireman ready to respond to  just such a crisis in the Middle East when American lives are in danger. Nobody is arguing that Ambassador Stevens and Sean Smith would have been saved, but the deaths of Ty Woods and Glen Doherty occurred several hours later at the CIA compound.

Obama and Hillary Clinton have much to hide.

Gary, your crass propaganda is simply not sustained by the text of the communication you cite (assuming it is genuine). It doesn't say the troops are on their way, it says intermediate authority has identified forces that could be activated, and if higher authorities order them sent, they are at the disposal of such higher authorities. Give the late hour of the communique, it is quite likely that there was no effective way these forces could be used... and permission FROM LIBYA to enter Libyan air space would be a significant consideration, unless, of course, we decided we were at war with Libya.

Still trying to create a scandal out of people doing their job to be ready for any orders that might be issued in a fast-moving situation that nobody was entirely clear about.
