    Re: Official: We knew Benghazi was a terrorist attack "from the get-go"

    LIB NEWS ALERT... LIB NEWS ALERT... LIB NEWS ALERT...
    For those who have been ODing on Koooool-Aidski...

    First:
    Bob Schieffer: Today only on Face the Nation, startling new details about the Benghazi attack from the number two American official in Libya...

    We'll get new details today and more insight into the stunning contradictions between the president of Libya and Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice when they appeared after the attack on Face the Nation.

    Libyan President Mohammed Magariaf: This was preplanned, predetermined.

    Susan Rice: We did not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned.

    WHERE WAS OBAMA, WHAT WAS HE DOING, AND WHY DON'T WE KNOW AFTER ALL THESE MONTHS?

    You have no new evidence in regards to it, the stuff that came out during the past does not count. Bob Schieffer using the word COVERUP on Face the Nation (CBS) does not count. It's not "new" unless we SUPER DRONES say it's new.

    We know that the compound was not secure and damn I cannot believe I typed that. We know the people there wanted more security and damn I cannot believe I typed that. We even know it wasn't provided to them for budgetary reasons that is a load of BS, because even I know National Security and security of our diplomatic outposts is Job #1, but hey... Libs lie because we can... Oh!, and we are pretty sure Clinton would have seen the request for security even if she did not approve it and damn I cannot believe I typed that.

    What more is there... besides the lies deceit and that whopper of a testimony from Hillary... Ugh Rice... Ugh Obama... ugh this sucks.

    Do you have some new evidence of more wrongdoing or that it is something more than 4 people dying in hostile foreign land due to defensive weakness? Of course you don't, and this is why you resort to tinfoil hat conspiracy theories and try to make a story out of nothing. Man am I good at this ignorance thing... I'll just ignore what just came out from the whistleblower and CBS and is all over the internet and TV this weekend.

    Benghazi... is that where they make Mercedes Benz's...?

    No, actually please do go through it for us. Explain how this person knows something that proves that this is more than just a state department screw up that killed a couple people in a violent foreign land. Because that has happened to every president in the past half century, and if obama has only lost 4 people to it he is doing pretty good compared to clinton, Buish Sr., Reagan, Carter, Ford, and many others. Explain to us how these 4 deaths even compare to 9/11 where bush jr. ignored reports that the attack was coming, and allowed for 3000 civilian deaths and a strike within america from america. Then explain to us why you were struck so silent when the information about his coverup came out. Because we would all love to hear why this is so much more important. Don't let me stop you from actually making your case.

    If all you are going to do is lame word substitution don't get mad at me because you cannot even come up with a bad excuse for your hypocrisy.




    Maybe if you weren't doing something similar to arguing with an empty chair and losing like your hero has been reduced to, you might have actually not wasted your time with a tactic that really wasn't very hard to counter.

    How about the fact that the USMedia was parroting, like a stenographer, the government's line when their responsibility is to report the news objectively. It's the Mass Media that has been trapped in its' own ineptitude. Everybody knew it was a terrorist attack and the Media was still braying "protestors." All those Intelligence Agency plants in newsrooms and at diplomatic posts telling stories as if they were still working for GWShiiteForBrains. That'd be the Bush whose conscience is full of dead Shiites. Obama has got a conscience full of dead Libyans. I can't believe what a bunch of dumbasses we are to put up with any of this crap. Get Congress to root the Intel agencies out of the Mass Media. Keerisst, get them out of our gov't.

    Libya: We gave US three-day warning of Benghazi attack .....


    American diplomats were warned of possible violent unrest in Benghazi three days before the killings of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three members of his team, Libyan security officials say.

    The claim came as the country's interim President, Mohammed el-Megarif, said his government had information that the attack on the US consulate had been planned by an Islamist group with links to al-Qa'ida and with foreigners taking part.

    However, the American ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, insisted that the killings had resulted from a demonstration against a film about the Prophet Mohamed, replicating protests in Cairo, which had been "hijacked" and got out of control.

    The Independent has reported diplomatic sources who said that the threat of an attack against US interests in the region was known to the US administration 48 hours before it took place. The alert was issued by the State Department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security, but not made public. A State Department spokesman maintained: "We are not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the US Mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent."

    But President Megarif told the American station National Public Radio: "We firmly believe that this was a pre-calculated, pre-planned attack that was carried out specifically to attack the US Consulate. A few of those who joined in were foreigners who had entered Libya from different directions, some of them definitely from Mali and Algeria."

    A senior official of the biggest militia in Benghazi, the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he had warned US diplomats of a rapidly deteriorating security situation in Benghazi three days before the attack. "The situation is frightening, it scares us," he said he had stressed during the meeting.
    The British consulate in the city was shut after an ambush of a convoy carrying Dominic Asquith, the UK ambassador, in which his bodyguard were injured. The UN and International Committee of the Red Cross offices had been bombed and there had been a spate of political assassinations.

    However, Ms Rice denied the Benghazi attack was pre-planned. She said: "Our current best assessment... is that... it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo. "A small number of people came to the consulate. It seems to have been hijacked by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons... And it then evolved from there."

    Captain Fathi al-Obeidi, who had taken an eight-strong American rescue team which had arrived from Tripoli to the safe house, said "I don't know how they found the place to carry out the attack. It was planned, the accuracy with which the mortars hit us was too good for any ordinary revolutionaries." On Sunday, the head of Libya's national congress said about 50 people had been arrested in connection with the attack on the US consulate, though the interior ministry put the figure far lower.....snip~

    Here Let that Be Rephrased again so that none In the Obama Administration can come back to deny it. It is a fact.....reported by the Libyans and the Brits.

    The Independent has reported diplomatic sources who said that the threat of an attack against US interests in the region was known to the US administration 48 hours before it took place. The alert was issued by the State Department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security, but not made public. A State Department spokesman maintained: "We are not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the US Mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent.".....snip~

    That's Right 48 hrs Before the Attack took Place.....Repeat 48 hrs before the attack took place. Which means it was known by the US even before Al-Zawahri (sp) even released his 911 Video Tape!!!!!

    That's one of the questions Congress and the "informed American voters" have been asking for the past eight months. Where was Obama from 5:00 P.M. EDST to the time he went to bed on 9-11-12 and what was he doing ?

    What's the big secret ? Is Obama trying to hide something from Congress and the American people ?

    Well we Know at the time that al- Zawahiri released the Video tape calling on those in Libya to revenge al-libi.....that Obama was speaking at a Florida university about Romney. Bashing Ryans Plan. We also know he was suppose to go out West Coast for a Fundraiser and then a Speech he was to give out there.

    Now as to was he in flight on his way there and then was forced to fly back to DC. Or if he went Straight from Florida to DC. We do not know until those times are confirmed as to when Air Force one left Florida on the Sept 10th. Or if he was on Marine One. My thinking is.....if he was to go out West Coast. he would have had Air Force One and a Straight flight to Neveda then onto Candyland. (California)

    What we do know is Panetta stated he had spoken to Obama at 5-30pm or thereabouts. Which was before the Attack for his briefing. But he didn't say where Obama was.

    Decisions about military deployments can be mistaken, but they are made. They will be second guessed sometimes, and that's a good thing. Unless there was INTENT to see them die, I can't imagine how that's an impeachable crime.
    We know that security requests went out months ahead, and the British had moved out of town a long time for the 9/11 attack.

    Or, if the Libyan Government was denying them the ability to put combat read troops in the US consulate as they claim, then they could have chosen to leave Libya. But, golly gee, they just couldn't leave Libya for security concerns after declaring the area pacified.... not with an election to win...
    I'm hearing reports that the whistle blower is going to testify that the Lybian Govt offered to fly in support on a C-130 but they were told to " stand down ".

    " Fog of War " ? Nah, a big dust up prior to the election would have killed his " Arab Spring " narrative.

    Let'em fend for theirselves. " How dare they get themselves killed this close to a election ".

    Plus the administration hid the names of the survivors by changing their names on their medical records ?

    I mean what low lifes, what a corrupt group of sub-human scum.
