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!
Barack Obama has the blood of Ambassador Chris Stevens and his staff on his hands.
There simply is no other way to put it. His incoherent policies of appeasement in the Mideast and with our adversaries have left our country weaker and our foreign policies in tatters. Online Der Speigel says flatly that, “Obama’s Middle East Policy Is in Ruins‘
While the lap dogs in the MSM and Team Obama continue to spin the story that it was a lame 14 minute movie trailer, out on the Internet and on YouTube for months that caused the surprise attacks on the Libyan embassy, the truth behind the attack continues to come out.
Not only wasn’t the attack a surprise, Barack “why do I have to read those boring intelligence reports“ Obama and the State Department had been warned about the possibility of the attacks. Jay Carney’s response they lacked “actionable intelligence” not only doesn’t cut it, it is diametrically opposed to what the Libyans have been saying for days.
Reading from these various sources that emphatically assert the US was warned days in advance of the attacks:
- The Egyptian General Intelligence Service warned that a radical jihadi group is planning to launch terrorist attacks against the US and Israeli embassies in Cairo. Egypt Independent
- 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 Independent
- Egypt intelligence warns of terror plot against US, Israeli embassies. ynetnews.com
- Al-Masry Al-Youm reportedly obtained a copy of the September 4 letter, sent to all Egyptian security sectors, warning that Sinai- and Gaza-based Global Jihad cells were planning attacks on the two embassies. The Jerusalem Post
- Libyan military official claims he met with U.S. diplomats to tell them about the deteriorating security situation and President Mohamed el-Megarif says the attacks were NOT sparked by anti-Islamic video, but by Al Qaeda-connected foreigners. The DailyMailOnLine
I have remained a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton, having watched how the DNC nomination was literally ripped from her hands, stolen from her in 2008. I haven’t always agreed with all of her decisions but I decided to keep my power dry as it were, but not on this time.
Ultimately, the buck stops with Obama, but sadly, Hillary Clinton also has some “splainin to do”.
Ret. Col. David] Hunt told Breitbart News that the new State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, approved and signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton since the 2011 fall of Khadafi’s regime, severely compromised the safety and security of murdered Ambassador Stevens and all American diplomatic staff in Libya.
He also stated that the decision not to staff Benghazi with Marines was made by Secretary of State Clinton when she attached her signature to the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya document. Breitbart News has subsequently learned that under those rules of engagement, Secretary Clinton prohibited Marines from providing security at any American diplomatic installation in Libya.
My loathing and disgust for MSM holds no bounds. They have gone over and above reason, common sense, and good taste (remember that quaint concept) turning themselves inside out to protect their poseur president.
Their relentless attacks on Mitt Romney for having the temerity to question Obama’s policies and the statements originally made by the State Department & on Obama’s website (later repudiated) on the evening of 9/11 remain unrelenting.
Their faux outrage over the timing of Mitt’s comments ring hollow. They practice group think and group speak, incapable of asking a single question as to why our Libyan ambassador and his staff were left to be slaughtered like lambs.
No wonder, as the MSM continues to shill and pimp for Obama, the disdain and hostility for this group grows hourly.
