    Which doesn't count the Libyan FM telling the Brits and the BBC in the UK that the attacked was planned.
    Hi MMC.

    So are you saying that Stevens was also warned of the danger and made the decision to go to Benghazi, anyway?

    Lets see now, there were protests over the anti-Islamic video going on all over the ME....it was the anniversary of 9/11....and Lybia was still mopping up after a civil war. Gee, not much potential for danger there.

    Your link say...."Mr. Stevens had been back in Libya for only a short time before US security officials decided it would be safe to make the journey to Benghazi during the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

    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...."


    Who were the "US security officials" that determined the journey to Benghazi was safe when all the other diplomatic consulates and Blue Cross had left the city? Yes, there were plenty of warnings...but inspite of the obvious and well known danger.....Stevens decided to go to Benghazi, anyway. Nobody ordered him to go....it was his choice.

    Oops!


    Sept. 12: Libya’s deputy ambassador to London, Ahmad Jibril, tells the BBC that Ansar al-Sharia was behind the attack. The little-known militant group issues a statement that says it “didn’t participate as a sole entity,” neither confirming nor denying the report.

    Sept. 12, 6:06 p.m.: Beth Jones, the acting assistant secretary of state for the Near East, sends an email to top State Department officials that reads in part: “[T]he group that conducted the attacks, Ansar al-Sharia, is affiliated with Islamic extremists.” (An excerpt of Jones’ email was read by Rep. Trey Gowdy at the May 8, 2013, House oversight hearing.)

    Sept. 12: Citing unnamed “U.S. government officials,” Reuters reports that “the Benghazi attack may have been planned in advance” and that members of Ansar al-Sharia “may have been involved.” Reuters quotes one of the U.S. officials as saying: “It bears the hallmarks of an organized attack.”.....snip~

    Now remember this is all still on the 12th and Team O is denying it is a planned attack still on the Sept 14th. 2 days later and still trying to stick to the Anti Muslim Video BS.

    here is a bigger question.

    why is all this money being spent on investigating a supposed coverup, when it could be better spent discussing ways to make sure that such a tragedy never happens again.

    Who were the US security officials that determined the journey to Benghazi was safe when all the other diplomatic consulates and Blue Cross had left the city?

    Nope, Stevens was in Tripoli and then sent to Benghazi to meet with the Turk Envoy earlier that night.


    More details emerge on U.S. ambassador's last moments.....


    Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.

    Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security.

    He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn't good for international business. <<<<< (What situation do you think they were talking about 3 days before the attack?) (What Business?)


    Mabrouk said it was not the first time he has warned foreigners about the worsening security situation in the face of the growing presence of armed jihadist groups in the Benghazi area.

    Mabrouk said he received a call from an official in Tripoli, who said he had been called by a "terrified" American in Benghazi.

    The official was at the safe-house. Mabrouk says the Brigade asked the Americans if they needed help -- but were told that while the situation was dangerous, it was under control.

    A few hours later, Mabrouk said he received another call from Tripoli about the arrival of a U.S. team at Benghazi airport that needed transport into the city.

    He met the seven Americans, who were heavily armed but not in military uniform, on the runway and provided them with an armed escort, he said.

    As soon as the two vehicles carrying the seven Americans arrived at the safe house, they came under intense attack -- including a volley of grenades and machine-gun fire. The assailants then fled......snip~

    Btw.....this is the one that Damages Team O beyond repair. This guy was telling our CIA and State People about the DETIORATING SECURITY in Benghazi 3days before the attack takes place.

    Who decided to send Stevens to Benghazi despite the DIRECT warnings.

    NOW as my CO would have said.....I WANT SOMEBODY's ASS! It don't stop until you give the ASS up......now run back and tell Obama I said So.

    Its dated 9/11.

    And it referred to the Cairo attack which WAS NOT caused by a video.

    The second post refers to the Benghazzi attack.

    Wow ! Ben Rhodes WAS refering to Cairo and Benghazzi wasn't he ?

    In that E-mail he called those two attacks "proetest" and wanted Rice to underscore that a VIDEO caused them.

    Thanks for the info

    Did you forget.....Obama put the FBI in Libya to conduct an investigation. They have not concluded their business nor brought any to Justice yet.

    So who brought the Video fals narrative into it ?

    The WH ofcourse.
    The talking points given to Rice were written and edited by the CIA.
