Winston, did you drop that memo about the State department security threat down the incinerator? Yes, but not right away. I'm hoping Fred over at Free Republic saved a copy. If there's any hope it lies in the FReds.

Well, well, well. Isn't this interesting?

I can tell all of you why our illustrious federal government didn't know of any intelligence ('actionable' or otherwise) about another 9/11 attack as we witnessed in Libya and elsewhere, would you really like to know why?

Come closer to your monitors, flat panels and old CRT's while I drop my font size just a notch while I share this lil tid bit of hard data with you, ok? Y'all ready?

The reason our intelligence services were caught with their pants down is because they're directing all of their resources to the urgent task of SPYING ON US, 'We The People' of the United States! The Feds think WE are a greater threat to their political power than al Qaeda and their affiliated terrorist groups!

Now tell me: you're not really surprised at this, are you?

It seems they were warned about an attack and were in or heading for some kind of safe house, which does seem to have been some kind of attack. And don’t forget, he thought he was buds with those jihadis.

I don’t know how troubling this will be because it fits into their narrative that they had no “actionable intelligence” that an attack was going to happen. Will see we a drudge siren.

To answer your question, THERE IS NO LIMIT TO THE INCOMPETENCE OF THE OBAMA REGIME. With Obie, Biden, Brennan, Dempsey and Hillary Clinton running the show, they will prove, beyond any doubt, that there is NO LIMIT to their ability to be incompetent, delusional, blind, and in Obama’s case, treasonous.

What will be interesting is what Petraeus and Panetta knew and told the JCS, State Dept. and White House.

Oh, I forgot, Obama didn’t attend any recent intelligence briefings.

Does that answer the rest of your question?

My goodness..it dawned on me a few minutes ago I should have been keeping a list of links with tidbits because I’ve jumped all over the place trying to learn about this..this..MESS. I do know I read on two different sites that the Ambassador WAS asked/invited to be there at that time. If I can dig it up in the morning or run across it I’ll ping you .

The attack where HE was happened first- then there was a rescue of the remaining staff..who were taken to a “SAFE HOUSE”..where they were met by a well-coordinated attack as well.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444517304577653680320732176.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_LEFTTopStories

The crowd of several hundred Libyans overran the consulate Tuesday night, shooting a hail of bullets and grenades and overwhelming the lightly guarded compound before allegedly setting fire to the main buildings where American staff lived and worked. U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and a second diplomat, Sean Smith, died in the fire.

The majority of the Americans managed to evacuate from the compound during this initial attack and reach a nearby safe house. A couple of hours later, militants launched a second wave of attacks at that site, killing the other two Americans, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, U.S. and Libyan officials said.

Still doesn’t explain what he was doing in Benghazi at the Consulate offices at that hour. Our embassy is in Tripoli at the western side of libya, Benghazi, the first stronghold of the rebels is on the east.

So far as I’ve read, the consulate is offices only, no residence, so the question remains.

What business did the Ambassador and his IT guy have there at 9-10pm local time if the offices are closed?

The one guy with him was supposedly tracking down shoulder fired antiaircraft rockets, so it was probably more than a one day affair. If they were going to be in town for more than one day they would probably just stay there and sleep over, since there are no Holiday Inns to be had.

The problem is we are not getting answers to a lot of questions. Like what did the Prezzy know and when did he know it. I am interested in the WH response on 9/11. It appears they did nothing while the conslate burned but we just don’t have a timeline or the facts.

Apparently next week they are going to shut down all questions citing the FBI investigation. I have no doubt the presstitutes will cover for them. This is the face of real fascism.

Thanks for the reply and link to the WSJ article.

Curiosity lead me to the most comprehensive article here:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2202979/Benghazi-attack-U-S-consulate-pictured-Libyan-attack-revealed-officials-knew-attack-plans-48-HOURS-before.html?ITO=1490

Figures that the Brits would have the clearest presentation include a ton of photos of the consulate compound which btw had been previously attacked. (Photos didn’t load on my BB drat)

"THERE IS NO LIMIT TO THE INCOMPETENCE OF THE OBAMA REGIME."

Oh, they're way past that!! The Obama regime, the DemonicRat Party, and the fifth-column MSM has been wallowing in TREASON for quite a while.

Kindly direct your inquiry to the Benghazi division of the Mooslim Brooderhood....as they now have all the files from the Consulate office
