FROM: Yamaoka, Joseph (MC1956)
After tennis last night, the four of us repaired to Kellys for a brew or two.
The subject of Benghazi came up and I was surprised that the other three, who I believe fall somewhere
in the conservative half (as opposed to the liberal half) of the spectrum had not seen Bret Baier’s one hour
Fox special on 13 Hours in Benghazi. Before you trash this email, please at least take a minute or less to
read the FOX TEASER for the program below. Note that the teaser has several quotes by the men from the Annex Security Team who went to the embassy and probably saved the lives of about two dozen people under attack at the embassy. They were too late to save Ambassador Stevens.
I believe the program will be re-aired on Saturday (tomorrow) at 10 PM. It is riveting television. It goes into
a lot of detail about the events of that night. I encourage you to either view the program or DVR it and to judge for yourself whether the life of Ambassador Stevens could have been saved. If what these men said is true, it also begs the question: where up the chain of command did the order to stand down originate?
If you do view the program and believe that their story is credible, please encourage your friends to view it too.
The media (other than Fox) seems to refuse to follow the Benghazi story.
Thank you for putting up with this email.

A Fox News Reporting special, hosted by Bret Baier, tonight uncovered the smoking gun of Benghazi and offered an inside look into the harrowing and tragic 2012 attacks that killed four Americans.
“13 Hours at Benghazi: The Inside Story” is told by members of the Annex Security Team. The special is based off a new book, “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi” by Mitchell Zuckoffwith the Annex Security Team.
What the security contractors described as initially a “pretty routine day” became a 13-hour battle.
Five minutes after the attack on the consulate, the team said they were ready to go – but they were delayed by a top CIA officer who told them to stand down.
“We were told to wait, stand down. We were delayed three times,” security contractor and co-author Kris (“Tanto”) Paronto told Bret Baier in tonight’s special.
If the team had not been delayed, they believe things would have turned out differently.
“Ambassador Stevens and Sean [Smith], yeah, they would still be alive, my gut is yes,” Paronto said.

[JR: I and my tin foil hat are sure that the truth has not yet come out. And, like so MANY other “conspiracy theories”, it may never. And legit questions will be dismissed with that ad hominem attack “nut job”!]

Note I am not making any jokes about old men and tennis. I reserve those for my Classmate aka “Tennis Titan”.
And while this topic may be deemed “political”, I’m collecting it as evidence of life in the Class of 1956! You may draw your own conclusions about what type of “life” this is (i.e., intelligent; semi-; un).
