Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich appeared on Fox News’ “On the Record” with Greta van Susteren and believes the media is holding back some important information in email form concerning a rumored Central Intelligence Agency stand down. If such an email exists, it would authenticate the rumor and assumptions that the White House gave the order. As we have reported already, the head of the CIA David Petraeus has already stated that he did not give the order to stand down, which really only leaves one person.
Gingrich says that the bombshell emails could be released within the next two days.
During the interview, Gingrich said,
“There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down. But they were a group in real-time trying to mobilize marines and C-130s and the fighter aircraft, and they were told explicitly by the White House stand down and do nothing. This is not a terrorist action. If that is true, and I’ve been told this by a fairly reliable U.S. senator, if that is true and comes out, I think it raises enormous questions about the president’s role, and Tom Donilon, the National Security Adviser’s role, the Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who has taken it on his own shoulders, that he said don’t go. And that is, I think, very dubious, given that the president said he had instructions they are supposed to do everything they could to secure American personnel.”
He also added,
“The other big story, I think, that is going to break is on corruption and extraordinary waste in the solar power grants and direct involvement by the Obama White House, including the president, in the solar panel grants involving billions of dollars, and I suspect that’s going to break Wednesday and Thursday of this week.”
Well this is turning out to be one October surprise filled election, right down to the wire!
