Benghazi Bombshell?: Did Valerie Jarrett Order The Stand Down In Benghazi! (Updated)Topics: Benghazi, Political News and commentaries
An intriguing post at the Conservative Report Online provides a chronology of the evening of 9/11 ... and makes the jaw-dropping claim that Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett is the one that gave the order to stand down in Benghazi during the Sept. 11 terror attack that resulted in the death of four American heroes, citing only unnamed "confidential sources" The report was discussed by Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday and an editorial at the Investor's Business Daily said Wednesday that it would not have been the first time Jarrett issued such an order.
At this point one should consider it a rumor and it should be taken with a grain of salt. But if this turns out to be true ... it is indeed a bombshell.
The Blaze gives two reasons that the allegations are worth considering, and appropriately points out that the burden of proof is on the White House at this point - as it has worked overtime to muddy the water and obfuscate the truth. Until the Obama administration is forthright and truthful with the American people, the rumor mill will continue churning out reports from "unnamed sources."
Update: This story dates back to August 7, 2013, and there's been little to no follow-up news since then. So until sources are revealed and/or there's more reliable news sources on the story ... chalk this up as simply a rumor, for now. It was back in late July or early August that columnist Charles Krauthammer said on "The O'Reilly Factor" that the "biggest scandal of all" regarding that Benghazi slaughter has yet to emerge. Undoubtedly that scandal would be who actually gave the stand down order ... and if it's proven to be Jarrett ... that will indeed be a very big scandal!
