According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.

The end result of Obama’s “leading from behind”.
What has happened in the last two days is much bigger than the always ineligible man sitting in the White House, the British born Barack Obama.
We have a man with little feeling for this country who loves power and drones, whose actions and willful inactions have wrought havoc in the Mideast death to our Ambassador in Libya, Chris Stevens and his staff.
It isn’t just that Obama has shown he is as ineffective as Jimmy Carter or that this is what happens when a feckless amateur holds the most powerful office in the world. What is worse is that the lapdogs in the MSM are doing everything they can to protect him and divert attention from the massive failures his Mideast policies.
It is now being reported that the attack was most likely planned, something that was easily seen yesterday by anyone who isn’t a part of Obama’s administration. The attacks in Libya & Egypt were attacks on this country planned to be purposely executed on 9/11. We witnessed an act of war on Barack Hussein Obama’s watch, the direct result of his policies of appeasement.
Most disturbing of all is to learn that the US was warned 48 hours before the attacks and did NOTHING to warn this country’s diplomats or to beef up security. One would think that beefing up security on the 11th anniversary of the destruction of the WTC twin towers would be a no-brainer, standard operating procedure, but no. The man who can recite the Muslim call to prayer, the Shahada did no such thing.
In fact, most shocking of all is the night of September 11th, when Chris Stevens was known to be missing for five hours, Obama went to bed and slept like a baby!
The following was compiled by IBD and details how Obama has aided in the radicalization of the Mideast.
As you review Obama’s actions keep in mind that in the days leading up to the embassy attacks in Libya and Egypt, not only did Obama refuse to hold a meeting with Benjamin Netenyatu, but he also forgave $1.3 billion in debt to Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood-backed president, Mohamad Morsi.
2009: The Brotherhood’s spiritual leader — Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi — writes an open letter to Obama arguing terrorism is a direct response to U.S. foreign policy.
2009: Obama travels to Cairo to deliver apologetic speech to Muslims, and infuriates the Mubarak regime by inviting banned Brotherhood leaders to attend. Obama deliberately snubs Mubarak, who was neither present nor mentioned. He also snubs Israel during the Mideast trip.
2009: Obama appoints a Brotherhood-tied Islamist — Rashad Hussain — as U.S. envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, which supports the Brotherhood.
2010: State Department lifts visa ban on Tariq Ramadan, suspected terrorist and Egyptian-born grandson of Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna.
2010: Hussain meets with Ramadan at American-sponsored conference attended by U.S. and Brotherhood officials.
2010: Hussain meets with the Brotherhood’s grand mufti in Egypt.
2010: Obama meets one-on-one with Egypt’s foreign minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, who later remarks on Nile TV: “The American president told me in confidence that he is a Muslim.”
2010: The Brotherhood’s supreme guide calls for jihad against the U.S.
2011: Qaradawi calls for “days of rage” against Mubarak and other pro-Western regimes throughout Mideast.
2011: Riots erupt in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Crowds organized by the Brotherhood demand Mubarak’s ouster, storm buildings.
2011: The White House fails to back longtime ally Mubarak, who flees Cairo.
2011: White House sends intelligence czar James Clapper to Capitol Hill to whitewash the Brotherhood’s extremism. Clapper testifies the group is moderate, “largely secular.”
2011: Qaradawi, exiled from Egypt for 30 years, is given a hero’s welcome in Tahrir Square, where he raises the banner of jihad.
2011: Through his State Department office, William Taylor — Clinton’s special coordinator for Middle East transitions and a longtime associate of Brotherhood apologists —gives Brotherhood and other Egyptian Islamists special training to prepare for the post-Mubarak elections.
2011: The Brotherhood wins control of Egyptian parliament, vows to tear up Egypt’s 30-year peace treaty with Israel and reestablishes ties with Hamas, Hezbollah.
2011: Obama gives Mideast speech demanding Israel relinquish land to Palestinians, while still refusing to visit Israel.
2011: Justice Department pulls plug on further prosecution of U.S.-based Brotherhood front groups identified as collaborators in conspiracy to funnel millions to Hamas.
2011: In a shocking first, the State Department formalizes ties with Egypt’s Brotherhood, letting diplomats deal directly with Brotherhood party officials in Cairo.
April 2012: The administration quietly releases $1.5 billion in foreign aid to the new Egyptian regime.
June 2012: Morsi wins presidency amid widespread reports of electoral fraud and voter intimidation by gun-toting Brotherhood thugs — including blockades of entire streets to prevent Christians from going to the polls. The Obama administration turns a blind eye, recognizes Morsi as victor.
June 2012: In a victory speech, Morsi vows to instate Shariah law, turning Egypt into an Islamic theocracy, and also promises to free jailed terrorists. He also demands Obama free World Trade Center terrorist and Brotherhood leader Omar Abdel-Rahman, a.k.a. the Blind Sheik, from U.S. prison.
June 2012: State grants visa to banned Egyptian terrorist who joins a delegation of Brotherhood officials from Egypt. They’re all invited to the White House to meet with Obama’s deputy national security adviser, who listens to their demands for the release of the Blind Sheik.
July 2012: Obama invites Morsi to visit the White House this September. The Muslim Brotherhood’s sudden ascendancy in the Mideast didn’t happen organically. It was helped along by a U.S. president sympathetic to its interests over those of Israel and his own country.
The untold story of the “Arab Spring” is that the Obama administration secretly helped bring Islamofascists to power.
