Dear John,

For those of you who may have not kept up, they are from left to right: Bill Chandler ’70, George Skau ’59. Pete Sweeney ’64, Jim Smith ’60, of course Meg, Mike McEneney ’53, & Bill Harkins ’67.

JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) finds a picture in the NYT


Dear John,

On Monday, October 27th, page A22 in the print edition of The New York Times, there is a picture that accompanies an Article entitled “Generations of Lawyers Gather for a Reunion Like No Other” about a reunion of current and former members of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. There is a Manhattan connection in the Picture – On the left end standing is Otto Obermaier, ’57, on the right end is Judge John Martin, ’57, both former U.S. Attorneys for the Southern District, and in the Center Standing, is James Comey, Director of the FBI, son of J. Brien Comey Class of 1953! (Rudy Giuliani, ’65 is also a Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District, is not in the picture as he appeared via TV).

An impressive group of JASPERS!


McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

JEMAIL: Yamaoka, Joseph (MC1956) after tennis report


FROM: Yamaoka, Joseph (MC1956)

Hi All,

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.

Joe Yamaoka

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”!]

# – # – # – # – #  2014-Sep-12 @ 13:08 

The full, first-hand account of what really happened in Benghazi can be seen when Fox News airs 13 hours at Benghazi: The Inside Story Friday night 10 p.m. (EDT), Saturday at 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. (EDT), and Sunday at 8 p.m. (EDT)

JR addendum:

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).

You can visit my personal blog  for all my TINFOILHAT ravings. Those are tagged for easy access — TFHBENGAZI has four separate posts — there are 36 separate TFH tags for you reading pleasure.

Thanks for a fun email!
