Fw: Fwd: Iinfo regarding General Ham Fired for Trying to Help Embassy Personnel in Benghazi....

I cannot confirm this but if correct, this is very bad. An American military commander relieved because he tried to go to the aid of other Americans.

I circulated an e-mail to this effect a couple of days ago.  Here is confirmation that General Ham was sacked. 
 This e-mail is from Lt. Gen. General Adams whom I've known for over 50 years.

My source doesn't get any more credible than this.....If Nov 6th doesn't give us Hope, Nothing will!

 This story needs to get out. If you agree, move it  around. Appears to be
a cover-up of sizeable proportions. TMAL****

Head of AFRICOM Fired for Wanting to Assist Personnel in Benghazi****

By GerardDirect Staff - October 28, 2012****


General Carter Ham relieved of duty as Commander of AFRICOM****

Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced on Sunday that General Carter
Ham Commander of GOC Africa Command (Africom), headquartered in Stuttgart,
Germany. (U.S. Africa Command is one of six unified geographic commands
within the Department of Defense unified command structure.) for refusing
to obey orders not to assist the US personnel in Benghazi on the night of
September 11. Army General David Rodriguez has been appointed by President
Obama to become replace him. ****

Gen. Ham refused to take responsibility for the decision not to provide
essential air coverage and other support for the beleaguered personnel at
the Consulate. After the information was leaked last week that three urgent
requests for support were denied to the Americans trapped in the Consulate
and the Annex, President Barack Obama said on Sunday, "The minute I found
out what was going on, I gave three very clear directives – Number 1, make
sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to."
According to the highly decorated, four-star General, Carter Ham, the
President is lying. ****

The Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, another official, and two CIA
assets and former NAVY SEALS disregarded repeated orders to stand down, and
rescued several people from the burning Consulate under heavy fire. They
requested assistance at least three times and were summarily denied each
time. They had AQ mortars painted with laser pointers and requested a C130
attack on the target or a missile strike with a F-22 or F-35. They had laid
the groundwork for a military response that would create minimum collateral
damage. In return for their heroism, their urgent requests were denied and
they died defending America. ****

According to our sources, General Ham received copies of the e-mails that
had been sent to the White House from Benghazi, requesting military support
at the Consulate and the Annex after the attacks began. General Ham had a
rapid response unit ready to deploy and communicated that to the Pentagon.
He then received the order to stand down. His response to the Pentagon was
essentially that he could not do that. Within a few minutes after sending
that response, his second in command told General Ham that he was relieved
of his command, effectively immediately.****

On Saturday, October 27, Panetta confirmed that General Ham had been
relieved of his assignment.****
