AC-130U Gunship was on-scene in Benghazi, Obama Admin refused to let it fire Written By: Bob AC-130U Gunship was on-scene in Benghazi, Obama Admin refused to let it fire « Bob Owens Oct 2612 This is treason. A much more detailed confirmation from a Delta operator: Having spent a good bit of time nursing a GLD (ground Laser Designator) in several garden spots around the world, something from the report jumped out at me. One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a briefing pointer laser. You do not paint a target until the weapons system/designator is synched; which means that the AC130 was on station. Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on information directly from the target area. The designator will not work without the plane overhead. [excerpt] This may be the reason General Carter Ham was relieved of duty. He disobeyed presidential orders and sent assistance to those Americans in trouble.
