Never Forget: On Ten Year Anniversary of Benghazi Attack September 11, 2012, Former US Military Member Recounts How USAF Planes At Aviano Air Base Were Ordered To Stand Down


By Mary Fanning and Alan Jones | September 10, 2022

On September 11th and 12th, 2012 — ten years ago — during the battle of Benghazi terror attack against the US State Department’s diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, Obama Administration officials ordered a stand down of fully-ready US Air Force aircraft on the flight line at Aviano Air Base in Northern Italy — and then lied about it to the American people.

CIA security contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty (both former US Navy SEALs) were killed while heroically defending the Benghazi compound from terror militias under the command of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The Iranian-led terrorists also killed US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith.

President Donald Trump ordered the assasination of General Soleimani, who was killed on January 3, 2020 in a U.S. drone strike near the Baghdad International Airport in Iraq.

In an exclusive audio statement provided to The American Report, a former U.S. service member [name withheld] who was stationed at Aviano Air Base at the time of the Benghazi Terror attack told The American Report that U.S. military aircraft and crews at Aviano Air Base were already on alert and ready to go as part of a “real world exercise” when the Benghazi attack unfolded, but were ultimately told to stand down.

Aviano Air Base hosts US Air Force F-16 fighter jets.

The American Report provided the audio statement to The Intelligence Briefing With John B. Wells On Ark Midnight Live for the Saturday, September 10, 2022 episode titled “Using Terrorism to Force the Great Reset,” which was broadcast live via the Salem Radio Network over terrestrial radio stations across the United States and over multiple streaming services.

“When we first heard of the embassy getting attacked in Benghazi, we were on alert. We got the aircraft ready to go, and we were on standby for 24 hour coverage until two days after the incident, then we were told to stand down,” the former U.S. military member told The American Report.

The former service member elaborated:

What I didn’t find out until later — I wasn’t sure who had given the order — either the USAFE [US AIr Forces In Europe] Commander or the European Combatant Commander — but all of USAFE pretty much, a week prior, was told to undergo a real world exercise.

So we generated our aircraft, they were fully loaded with live bombs and munitions.

And when we got the call that we were on alert to go to Benghazi, we were already ready.

Some people might call that coincidence, and others, like myself, I think somebody knew something.

So, we were already ready by the time the incident started happening.

However, we never got the call to go in. We were told to stand down, and absolutely no backup or anything from anywhere in Europe or US CENTCOM came or did anything about it.

As we previously reported in the June 15, 2019 article at The American Report, titled “Former US Military Personnel Expose Truth Of Benghazi: Iran’s Quds Force And Suleimani Led Attacks Against Americans, US Military Ordered To Stand Down,” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey and U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta lied to Congress about the availability of US military forces in the region to rapidly respond during the Benghazi terror attacks:

General [Carter] Ham testified on June 26, 2013, before the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation, that moments after the Benghazi attacks began, he alerted Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey.

Secretary Panetta testified during a February 7, 2013, Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the Defense Department’s response to the Benghazi attack:

There was no specific intelligence or indication of imminent attack on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi. And, frankly, without an adequate warning, there was not enough time given the speed of the attacks for armed military assets to respond.

The United States military, as I’ve said, is not and, frankly, should not be a 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world.

General Dempsey stated during the same hearing:

There’s some places on the planet where we have some gaps and I think North Africa’s probably one of them.

The former military member who had been stationed at Aviano Air Base also told The American Report that “The attacks, from what I’ve seen afterwards, were coordinated, and this was a long time planning, which leads me to believe that somebody knew something and called USAFE to be on an unofficial standby by calling a real world exercise.”

Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice also lied to the American People.  They ludicrously pushed the lie that it was a protest over an obscure film. It was Suleimani who led the attack in Benghazi. They knew. Records were ordered destroyed.

Part of the reason they lied was because they were moving weapons through Benghazi. General Flynn exposed that the Obama Administration was arming ISIS terrorists.

Hillary Clinton has been lying since the day she came on the scene.

Canada Free Press reported:

The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther — and goes much deeper — than anyone realizes.

Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.

The former service member who had been stationed at Aviano Air Base concluded by telling The American Report:

To put a little visual on this, I saw the “Thirteen Hours” movie, and there was one scene where the camera pans onto a few jets with Aviano Tails [AV], and it was just dead silence. That is a pretty accurate description of what had happened. But, that’s my story, and I wish there was something more we could have done about it.

U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Sellin (Ret.), PhD, received several emails, which he shared with The American Report this evening:

“My nephew is a Navy SEAL assigned at the time [of the Benghazi attack] to anti-piracy operations off the coast of Libya. They were ready, locked and loaded that night to go in and assist and were told to stand down.”

“And yesterday a neighbor here in Atlanta told me her daughter is a VA nurse in the DC area who’s been caring for a burn victim that was in Benghazi. Her daughter has been contacted three times over the course of his treatment by none other than Hillary herself, asking after the names of people who’ve been trying to talk to the patient. My neighbor doesn’t have a political bone in her body and isn’t aware of the newsworthiness of this item.”

“I should add that the person who sent me the information by email was a news reporter, not just someone spreading rumors,” Colonel Sellin stated.

Another former US military member told The American Report:

I was on [a US Navy ship] in the Mediterranean when our ship was called to aid and did nothing for 14 hours while they all died.

We had [dozens of] Marines locked and loaded to go. With flight ops running for 14 hours…

So much I can say about what our Navy has done to the sons and daughters of America to demolish and destroy our military. Weak liberal leadership purposely put in place to rid our military of good leadership.

Hillary Clinton canceled her trip to Ireland because of failure to give the order to go in. We wanted to go in so badly, but no orders ever came. Sad day for American servants everywhere, America will not save you.

Terrorism is being used to force The Great Reset by global elitists and communists. America is under assault and being dismantled before our very eyes. Their objective is the complete destruction of America — death by a thousand cuts.
