David Ubben Benghazi hero helped recover body of Sean Smith
David Ubben is a Benghazi hero. Ubben doesn’t get any media attention (aside from Fox News) though. David Ubben helped recover body of Sean Smith, one of the four Americans left to die by Obama and Hillary Clinton. David Ubben severely wounded survivors and gave an interview to Fox News. His face isn’t shown because of the severe injuries she suffered. Fox News at the request of David Ubbin has blurred out his face during the interview.
Sources tell Fox News that during the second wave of the attack, Ubben was on the roof of the CIA annex — along with former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty — defending the compound. It was a harrowing scene as dozens of militants attempted to swarm the barriers.
In another sign the attacks were pre-meditated, three mortar rounds rained down on the compound. The first fell short of the annex, about 50 yards away, but the subsequent mortar rounds were direct hits.
While the rest of the media is busy trying to start race wars by continue to talk about what a ‘victim’ Trayvon Martin was, and how George Zimmerman ‘got away with murder.’ maybe it’s time they interview someone like David Ubben.

BOMBSHELL: Was the downing of SEAL Team 6’s CH-47 helicopter an inside job?

Fox News’ Megan Kelly interviewed the parents of SEAL Team 6 member Aaron Vaughn who perished in the tragic crash of a CH-47 helicopter on August 06 2011 in Afghanistan. During this interview the Vaughs stated that this crash was a direct result of traitorous rules of engagement ordered by the Obama administration that have consistently proven deadly to our troops (It should be noted here that “Over Twice as Many U.S. Soldiers Have Died in Afghanistan Under Obama In 3 1/2 Years Than Did Under Bush in 8 Years..”)
Although the exact number of SEALs killed has been misstated in the media, it is known that 17 SEALs died in this crash. The other 8 American dead include soldiers/special operators and airmen (See Below). There were also 7 Afghan troops aboard the helicopter.
Why was a commercial grade, vintage 1960’s helicopter used for this mission? Why wasn’t the more heavily armored military grade version, MH-47 used? Why were so many SEALs placed aboard one helicopter, rather than two? Were these SEALs deliberately sent into an ambush for the purpose of silencing them? Was this an ‘inside job’ by Afghans in retaliation for SEAL Team 6’s Osama Bin Laden raid?
Perhaps the most stunning revelation from this interview is that the names of the 7 Afghans placed aboard this helicopter as shown on the flight manifest are NOT the same individuals who actually died in this crash.. The 7 Afghans slated for this flight were SWAPPED with different Afghans at the last minute yet the flight manifest was not changed to reflect the swap. Was the helicopter downed by the Afghans on board this flight? Did the Afghans involved with this flight tip off their comrades down range to plan their strike on this helicopter? Did the Afghans influence the decision to swap their occupants with their own hit team inside?
The Vaugn family is outraged that Vice President Biden outed SEAL Team 6 as the group who executed the Osama Bin Laden raid. She said that because of Biden’s ‘leak’, SEAL Team 6 had “a target put on their backs”. Mrs. Vaughn had been personally warned by her own son via telephone to “wipe her social media clean”. Mr. Vaughn suggested Joe Biden be held accountable for his remarks which far surpass mere ‘gaffes’ and that have cost American troops their lives. “They sympathize with the enemy. They sympathize with the ideology” of the enemy, he said.

Facebook has removed a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS), (REBLOGGED)
November 1st, 2012 Jo!
Social media giant Facebook has removed a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS), which shed negative light on US President Obama for denying a request for military support in Benghazi before the deadly attack on the consulate.
OUR US SEALS, Real Heros
The message came in the form of a meme, accompanied by an image of Obama, smiling while holding his ears, next to an image of former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
“Obama called the SEALs and THEY got bin Laden,” the meme states. “When the SEALs called Obama, THEY GOT DENIED.”
The message sheds light on Obama’s failure to provide backup when the SEALs called for it in Benghazi, shortly before four Americans were killed in an attack that killed the US Ambassador to Libya.
Sources who were present during the six-hour assault claim that military assistance, which was only two hours away, was requested and denied even when the CIA safe house was under attack. The assault has become a controversial topic, with the White House having been unclear about how much it actually knew about the attack and the motivations behind it.
SOS is an anti-Obama group consisting of “veterans, legatees, and supporters of the Special Operations communities of all the Armed Forces,” the Facebook page states. After the page garnered 30,000 shared and 24,000 likes for the meme in just 24 hours, it was deleted by Facebook.
Larry Ward, the administrator of the SOS Facebook page, said he received a message that he had violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities with out meme.
“So I copied the warning, put it on the meme as a caption, and re-posted the meme to our Facebook page,” he told Breitbart News. But after reposting the image, it was removed again and the SOS account was frozen for 24 hours.
Ward believes the meme was removed because it offended Obama supporters – including, he believes, members of the Facebook staff. It was posted just days before the presidential election, and its high number of shares could have made it influential.
“It looks like Obama’s liberal followers in Facebook HQ are terrified of how damaging the Benghazi scandal is for the President,” said former Navy SEAL Larry Bailey in a press release by SOS. “We understand that Facebook can run their site however they’d like, but when they’re trying to quietly squelch opposition to what is a clear leadership failure that resulted in the tragic deaths of some of our nation’s heroes, they deserve the to be called out on it.”
But Facebook denies that it purposefully censored the message, claiming the two-time deletion was simply a mistake.
“A member of our team accidentally removed something you posted on Facebook,” an e-mail from the social media giant told SOS. “This was a mistake, and we sincerely apologize for this error. We’ve since restored the content, and you should now be able to see it.”

Father of Slain SEAL: Who Made the Decision Not to Save My Son?
On meeting Obama: “Could not look me in the eye … like shaking hands with a dead fish.”
6:18 PM, Oct 25, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER
Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, who was killed in the 9/11 terrorist attack at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, reveals details of meeting Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton at the publically broadcast memorial service for the slain Americans at Andrews Air Force Base only days after the attack. And, in a recent radio appearance, Woods publicly questions who made the call not to send in back-up forces to possibly save his son’s life, as well as the three other Americans killed in Benghazi (which includes the American ambassador to Libya).
“When [Obama] came over to our little area” at Andrew Air Force Base, says Woods, “he kind of just mumbled, you know, ‘I’m sorry.’ His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere, ‘I’m really sorry, you know, that your son died,’ but it was totally insincere, more of whining type, ‘I’m sorry.’”
Woods says that shaking President Obama’s hands at his son’s memorial service was “like shaking hands with a dead fish.”
“It just didn’t feel right,” he says of his encounter with the commander in chief. “And now that it’s coming out that apparently the White House situation room was watching our people die in real time, as this was happening,” Woods says, he wants answers on what happened—and why there was no apparent effort to save his son’s life.
“Well, this is what Hillary did,” Woods continues. “She came over and, you know, did the same thing—separately came over and talked with me. I gave her a hug, shook her hand. And she did not appear to be one bit sincere—at all. And you know, she mentioned that the thing about, we’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video. That was the first time I had even heard about anything like that.”

(CNN) — Two former Navy SEALs who were among four Americans killed last week in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, died after rushing to the aid of their colleagues, according to sources familiar with the incident.
Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were in Benghazi as part of a security contractor force.
On September 11, they were ensconced in the safety of an annex location in another part of the city when they got word that the main consulate building was under fire and the diplomats there — with an armed force of only nine people — were overwhelmed by the deteriorating situation.
Doherty and Woods, along with other security personnel, left the secure annex and made their way to the chaotic scene, rounding up the consulate staff who were under attack and guiding them back to the second safe building.

Their grim task also included recovering the body of computer expert Sean Smith, who had succumbed to smoke inhalation from a fire ignited by the attackers. The sources said diesel fuel was used to set the fire and the thick, black smoke created by the accelerant added to the confusion on the ground.
U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who had gone missing during the attack, was not among those evacuated. He was later reported dead. The State Department has not released details about how Stevens died, though numerous media reports have said the ambassador was taken from the consulate to Benghazi Medical Center by locals.
After arriving back at the annex, the incident was far from over for the security team, which included Woods and Doherty. An attack was launched on the annex — this one more intense than the initial assault on the main building.
Military officials in Benghazi told CNN that rocket-propelled grenades were among the heavy firepower used by the attackers at the annex, with one official saying mortars were also fired.
“It was during that (second attack) that two additional U.S. personnel were killed and two others were wounded,” a senior administration official said last week in providing details of the attack. Those two victims were later confirmed to be Doherty and Woods.
The men were remembered last week during a transfer-of-remains ceremony attended by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama.
Doherty grew up in Massachusetts with a passion for the outdoors. He served two tours of duty in Iraq, starting with the U.S. invasion in 2003, before leaving the military in 2005. He then became a private security contractor, working in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen. A diplomatic source told CNN that Doherty was in Libya to search for shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles — a mission given high priority after the fall of longtime Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi.
Woods, a registered nurse and certified paramedic, served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. After retiring from the Navy, he worked in diplomatic security in posts from Central America to the Middle East.
“Four Americans, four patriots, they loved their country and chose to serve it and serve it well,” Obama said. “They had a mission and they believed in it, and they knew the danger and they accepted it. They didn’t simply embrace the American ideal, they lived it, they embodied it: the courage, the hope and, yes, the idealism.”

Obama Adds Military Heroes to ‘Enemies List’
President Barack Obama has added military heroes to his “enemies list,” singling out veterans’ groups such as Special Operations for America and Veterans for a Strong America on his campaign website, much as he singled out donors to Republican rival Mitt Romney for attack. Several veterans’ groups have spoken out against the Obama administration’s habit of taking credit for the Osama bin Laden raid and leaking military secrets for political gain–so the Obama campaign is trying to shoot the messenger.
The charge made by the Obama campaign is that the veterans’ groups are “Swift Boat 2.0”–referring to the group that launched a series of ads (never refuted) in 2004 contesting claims by then-Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry about his war record. Left-wing groups aligned with the Obama administration have even gone so far as to call the U.S. Navy Seals “gutless” for their participation in criticism of Obama.
Ryan Zinke, a member of the Montana state Senate and a U.S. Navy SEAL from 1985 to 2008, told Breitbart News: “It’s a sad time for America when a President has to resort to bully tactics, intimidation, and misleading personal attacks against anyone who dares to speak out and be heard. The good thing is Americans have a long history of defeating tyrants.”
Joel Arends, recipient of the Bronze Star and chair of Veterans for a Strong America, said:
The president’s team is more serious about labeling a group of veterans as “swift boaters” than they are about going after the leakers in his administration. The reality is as simple as it is disturbing – American lives are now in danger because this White House under the leadership of President Obama have leaked vital national security secrets. And instead of appointing a special prosecutor – this President dispatches his campaign team to smear a group of vets looking out for their buddies in uniform. It just shows the lack of seriousness on the part of this administration.
If they want to call us swift boaters because we are looking out for our buddies on the battlefield that’s fine with me – we’ll take the political body blows for our comrades in order to ensure that the American people fully understand our position on the issue and see the administration’s intransigence on this issue.

Obama uses ‘swift-boated’ Kerry to slam Navy SEAL critics
2004 candidate invokes ‘notorious’ group but still hasn’t released military records
Published: 22 hours ago
Invoking his 2004 battle with Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., thinks he can impart lessons to Barack Obama learned from his failed White House campaign as the president faces criticism from a group of former special forces and intelligence agents for exploiting sensitive national-security information and bragging about killing Osama bin Laden for political gain.
In a letter to Obama supporters, Kerry warns that “attacks, smears, and lies” can be effective, lamenting he learned the hard way eight years ago that “even completely baseless attacks can stick if people don’t call them out quickly enough.”
“No matter how self-evidently false the attacks are, or how disreputable the people telling them may be, there’s no attack that can’t take hold,” Kerry explains.
The problem for the Massachusetts Democrat, however, is that none of the substantive charges made by the more than 250 Swift Boat veterans have been debunked.
Kerry himself never responded to the charges, other than to call the veterans liars; and his campaign simply ignored most of the accusations presented in the group’s No. 1 New York Times bestseller “Unfit for Command.”
The group’s members included Kerry’s entire chain of command in Vietnam and most of the 23 men in his own unit; the gunner from one of his boats; the doctor who treated him for his first self-inflicted ‘injury’ which inexplicably led to a Purple Heart; and POWs imprisoned during Kerry’s 1971 Senate testimony accusing U.S. service members of being war criminals
Ultimately, Kerry never sued the veterans and refused to sign the Standard Form 180 request to release his full military record to the public during the campaign.
When the campaign did respond to specific claims, it was to backtrack, such as in the case of Kerry’s long-held assertion he was in Cambodia illegally Christmas Eve 1968.
Kerry had claimed his Swift Boat was ordered to Cambodia by President Nixon while the president denied to the world that any U.S. military forces were engaged in the country. The event was “seared, seared” into his memory, Kerry said on many occasions, including from the Senate floor. It was an experience that helped him conclude the war was immoral and worthy of protest. But Nixon did not become president until Jan. 20, 1969, and none of Kerry’s former crew members, including those who campaigned for him, back his story.
WND reported last year that the most vocal crew member who supported Kerry, Wade Sanders, was stripped of his Silver Star because an investigation surrounding the incident for which the award was made and the processing of the award itself concluded the medal was undeserved.
Instead of addressing the Swift Boat vets’ specific claims, the Kerry campaign threatened lawsuits against the television stations that aired the group’s ads, demanded publisher Regnery pull “Unfit for Command,” accused the group of being run by the Republican Party and attacked the character of co-authors John O’Neill and Jerome Corsi.
Establishment media also repeated the assertion that the claims against Kerry were debunked, without providing evidence. Those who offered evidence contended the military’s records supported Kerry’s version of events, without mentioning the Swift Boat vets’ contention that it was Kerry himself who wrote the “official record” in many instances, in after-action reports.
Moreover, while Kerry used his alleged exploits in Vietnam to promote his foreign policy credentials in his campaign, half of the book “Unfit for Command” was about his post-war behavior as a radical anti-war leader. Among his actions were engaging in unauthorized talks with Viet Cong and North Vietnamese leaders in Paris, infamously gave false testimony of atrocities by U.S. service members and leading the group Vietnam Veterans Against the War in a protest in which they tossed their medals over the White House fence.
As WND reported, William Middendorf, former secretary of the Navy, urged Kerry to open up his personnel files to resolve the question of whether he received a less-than-honorable discharge from the Navy because of his anti-war activities while a member of the Reserves.
Obama’s Chicago neighbor and colleague on two radical educational charities, 1960s Weather Underground founder Bill Ayers, called Kerry’s medal-tossing protest the senator’s “finest moment” and an incident that “shook the country to its core.”
One month after the 2004 election, when many pundits, left and right, acknowledged the Swift Boat vets likely were a deciding factor in George W. Bush’s victory over Kerry, Kerry campaign manager Mary Beth Cahill was insisting the campaign’s problem was that it just didn’t realize the impact of the Swift Boat effort and its nine powerful TV ads.
That “spin” – the same premise upon which Kerry is now writing his letter defending Obama – is “absurd,” said a partner with the media firm that produced the ads, Stevens Reed Curcio and Potholm.
Rick Reed said in December 2004 that Kerry’s “problem was that he never addressed one question or issue raised in the ads.”
“This is because there was no good answer,” Reed said. “Everything said about Kerry in the ads was accurate, but the Kerry campaign put all its effort into trying to discredit the ads, which didn’t work.”
Reed added, “Grade school kids knew the ads were hurting Kerry, so obviously Kerry’s campaign knew.”
In his new letter to donors, Kerry writes, “Seeing the new outrageous attacks made against President Obama from a shadowy Republican-allied veterans group called OPSEC, which take issue with the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, remind me all too well of the notorious ‘Swift Boat’ attacks I faced in the 2004 campaign.
“I honor and appreciate the service of my fellow veterans,” Kerry says, “but a false attack is a false attack – no matter who’s making it.”
