Chaos at the State Dept?
I spoke with a well-placed journalist last night whose sources describe the situation at the State Department in one word: Chaos. The working assumption is that several American embassies may have been penetrated, or are vulnerable to attack, because so many of them rely on local residents for staff needs at the embassy, and as such may be in a position to breach security if they have been recruited by Al Qaida. Moreover, the full story of the attack on the Benghazi consulate is much worse than we have been told (except by the Independent newspaper report John and I linked to here on Thursday).
The consulate in Benghazi was an interim facility, with only a standard door lock for security, and worse, Ambassador Stevens was traveling with only a light security detail, rather than in the heavily armed convoys our diplomats in the region usually employ. The attack on the Benghazi was no mere target of opportunity spurred by reaction to the Innocence of Muslims film; the film is just a pretext. The killing of Amb. Stevens was a premeditated hit, planned and carried out as retaliation for the recent drone strike that killed the number two Al Qaida operative in Afghanistan recently. The vulnerability of Stevens at the Benghazi compound was scouted out carefully. All the other embassy protest activity is just covering theater.
As Drudge would say, developing. . .
Staggering chicanery and subversion of our interests and govt employees and all that’s sacred and sane ! The blood on their hands can never be erased. I’m wondering if Hillary could now be impeachable. This “October surprise” will have mighty and calamitious consequences. God help us, protect us.
Lord protect our brave troops .. be their hedge of protection. St. Michael, defend them in battle, foreign and domestic.
My first troubling question about the Benghazi ambush was wondering what the Ambassador and his IT guy were doing out there so late at night, IIRC 9:30-10:00pm local time.
The consulates usually keep regular business hours, with maybe a skeleton crew under some circumstances.
Have you encountered anything yet which ecplains this?
One has to wonder if he was lured there, with the ‘spontaneous mob and attackers on site. First reports indicated mortars and RPGs were used in the attack. Even if such reports came from Libyans, they’ve learned to identify weapons by sound during the battles with Qaddafi’s forces.
We have arrogance, icompetence and treason in the WH, Dept’s of State, Justice, Homeland Security, perhaps and likely the CIA, and the of course the complicit lamestream.
Hillary is a pig. She’d better STHU about that idiot film.
And the Leftists are swarming Powerline, with their “fact-checking”...
