There is this thing called a CBA, Cross- Boarder-Authority. This is either granted or withheld by the President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief. Sending additional forces into a foreign country is the direct responsibility of the Commander-in-Chief, only he can give this command (authorize the CBA) or refuse it.
According to retired Navy Seal officer, Matt Bracken, who took a Nav-Spec-War Detachment to Beirut:
“Once the alarm is sent -in this case, from the consulate in Benghazi — dozens of HQs are notified and are in the planning loop in real-time, including AFRICOM and EURCOM, both located in Germany. Without waiting for specific orders from Washington, they begin planning and executing rescue operations, including moving personnel, ships, and aircraft forward toward the location of the crisis. However, there is one thing they can’t do without explicit orders from the president: cross an international border on a hostile mission. That is the clear ‘red line’ in this type of a crisis situation.”
We know the back story, we have heard all the talk and speculation regarding Gun running to the Syrian’s and we now know that to be true, as Obama and his criminal cronies are currently and openly sending arms and God knows what else to the Syrian Rebels. We have heard from dozens of officials, and even been told by Hillary Clinton, Secretary of States at the time the catastrophe in Benghazi occurred “What Difference Does it Make!” Well Hillary, according to this new or not so new information which has come to light, it makes a bloody big difference! Because what Mr. Bracken is saying is that to avoid any embarrassment, or stumbling into a war because some “jet jokey, in hot pursuit (or a mixed-up SEAL squad in a rubber boat) strays into hostile territory.” Only the Commander-in-Chief, the president of the United States can give the order for our military to cross a nation’s boarder without that nation’s express permission. . http://pjmedia.com/blog/benghazis-smoking-gun-only-president-can-give-%E2%80%98cross-border-authority%E2%80%99/
Commander-in-Chief Obama had to grant Navy SEAL Team Six, CBA (Cross Boarder Authority), for them to enter Pakistani airspace to complete their mission to kill or capture Osama bin Laden. Hell Obama even bragged about giving them the CBA Order, when he said:
“I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action and authorized an operation (gave the CBA), to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that Compound in Abbottabad Pakistan.”
Now on the flip side of the CBA coin is this; to avoid or prevent a rescue in Benghazi, all the Commander-in-Chief, the President of the United States, the only person with the authority to grant a CBA, is to not grant the Cross Boarder Authority; if the Commander-in-Chief does not grant the CBA, the entire rescue mission must stop, even if underway. According to Mr. Bracken, retired Navy SEAL officer:
“Ships can loiter on station, but airplanes fall out of the sky, so they must be redirected to an air base (Signorelli, in Sicily) to await the [Commander-in-Chief’s] decision on granting CBA. If the decision to grant CBA never comes, the besieged diplomatic outpost in Benghazi can rely only on assets already “in country” in Libya — such as the Tripoli quick reaction force and the Predator drones. These assets can be put into action on the independent authority of the acting ambassador or CIA station chief in Tripoli. They are already “in country,” so CBA rules do not apply to them.” http://pjmedia.com/blog/benghazis-smoking-gun-only-president-can-give-%E2%80%98cross-border-authority%E2%80%99/
So with this in mind, how might this process have played out in the White House, that fateful night on September 11th 2012?
Who was it that gave Ms. Susan Rice instructions to lie to the American people on five Sunday morning television Show’s stating that the attack on Benghazi was due to some obscure anti-Islam film no one had even heard of until that moment? Who paid for the propaganda machine to go into full swing that Sunday morning? Was it Obama, the Commander-in-Chief, or Hillary, the operating Secretary of State, or both? Needless to say the propaganda machine went into full gear and a cover-up which dwarfs Watergate is the outcome. It is important to keep in mind here that no one died in the Watergate Scandal; four human lives were lost in Benghazi.
Here is the fact, Benghazi’s smoking gun if you will; only the president, the Commander-in-Chief can give the Cross-Border-Authority, he is the only person who has the authority to give or deny the CBA. This puts the spotlight directly where it should be, without any of the conjecture, back story of motive or intent. The buck really does stop with the President, the Commander-in-Chief. It boils down to this one simple fact, why did Obama refuse to give the Cross-Border-Authority (CBA); while two ex-Navy SEALS fought for 7 horrible hours against fearful odds, waiting for relief that was ordered not to go (Obama refused the CBA) by the President, who then went back to bed so he was well rested to attend a Vegas fund-raiser the follow day. While Obama was sleeping tucked away nicely in his bed, comfortable and safe in the White House; those two men who died targeting a designated mortar that killed them, they waited for an air strike that was never launched, because the Commander-in-Chief refused the CBA Cross-Border-Authority), that my fellow countrymen is called “Maladministration.”
What is maladministration? The Cambridge Dictionary describes maladministration as: “lack of care, judgment, or honesty in the management of something.” http://dictionary.cambridge.org The Collins Dictionary describes maladministration as: “bad, inefficient, or dishonest management of the affairs of an organization, such as a business or institution.” http://www.collinsdictionary.com , and the Business Dictionary describes maladministration as: “Situation where the individual or group in charge is unjust, dishonest, or ineffective in their leadership. In many cases, maladministration means that a circumstance is so bad it must be investigated or reprimanded.” http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/maladministration.html
So let us put aside all the back stories, all the speculations, the possible motives or intent and let us concentrate on these two issues shall we. Issue number one: The President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief, and the only individual with the authority to provide a CBA that would have enabled a launched targeted operation to rescue Ambassador Stevens, two Navy Seals, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty and the office manager Sean Smith, refused to authorize said Cross-Border-Authority and went to bed. Issue number two: In refusing to authorize the CBA, the President of the United States, the Commended-in-Chief of the Military is guilty of Maladministration; which resulted in the deaths of four innocent American’s. Those are the facts, the only two facts that should and must be considered here. Four people are dead, because we have an inept, incompetent, ineffectual, indecisive, weak, and irresolute man sitting in the oval office, his name is Barrack Hussein Obama.
It is time that we get on with the business of the Nation, and bring this man up on charges of maladministration and his refusal to authorize the Cross-Border-Authority (CBA). That simple Congress, now do your job, because the American people are watching and if you do not, you will be relieved of your position, and that is not a threat, but a promise!
