A new witness, who had served in the Air Force at Aviano Air Base in northeastern Italy in 2012, has dropped bombshell allegations that his team was ready to go, waiting for the call to go save the Americans who were under attack and subsequently killed in the Benghazi terror attacks.
But they never got the orders to carry out their rescue mission. Perhaps because the administration was working too hard to justify the attacks through their ‘YouTube video’ narrative.
Via Fox News:
His squadron got the alert: a “real world mission was going down.”
The team – at Aviano Air Base in northeastern Italy – raced to the field and was briefed, as planes were armed and prepared to launch. Hundreds of miles away, fellow Americans were under attack in Benghazi.
“There were people everywhere. That flight line was full of people, and we were all ready to go” to Benghazi, he said.
Only they were waiting for the order. It never came.
“The whole night we were told that we are waiting on a call,” he told Fox News.
This account is from a squadron member at Aviano the night of the Sept. 11, 2012, terror attack in Benghazi. The source, the first in his squadron to speak out publicly since that attack, is going public to explain – in his view – that more could have been done to save Americans under attack that night.
Of course more could have been done to save those American lives, but the administration seemingly decided that spinning the story shortly before the presidential election was of far more importance than actually developing a rescue mission.
“I definitely believe that our aircraft could have taken off and gotten there in a timely manner, maybe three hours at the most, in order to at least stop that second mortar attack … and basically save lives that day,” the witness said.
Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were actually killed in a second wave of the attacks, seven hours later, as they tried to rescue others.
The Air Force witness lamented, “We could have been there, and that’s the worst part.”
“That’s a horrible feeling to have, when you can help someone, especially when you don’t even find out until later, and you hear that people actually died,” he added.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently released a devastating video which shows Hillary Clinton laughing at the Benghazi hearings superimposed over imagery of the burning consulate.
Compare the emotional interview with the Air Force whistleblower with the callous disregard of Hillary, and try not to be infuriated.
