White House told of militant claim two hours after Libya attack: emails
reuters ^

Posted on 10/23/2012 6:40:05 PM PDT by Perdogg

Officials at the White House and State Department were advised two hours after attackers assaulted the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for the attack, official emails show.

The emails, obtained by Reuters from government sources not connected with U.S. spy agencies or the State Department and who requested anonymity, specifically mention that the Libyan group called Ansar al-Sharia had asserted responsibility for the attacks.

This needs to be a TV ad tomorrow. A PAC should do it. It should include the words, “Lie” and “Trust” along with the quote from Obama saying we need to trust him. Romney needs to sit back and look Presidential, hence a PAC should eviscerate Hussein.

Video of Zero blaming the video. While he is talking, the Reuters claim on screen. Small sub screen (no Sound) Clinton wagging his finger with voice over “Do you Trust him?”

Petraeus has turned out to be the worst Director of Central Intelligence in history. He should have rejected that Axelrod/Jarrett /YouTube story the minute he heard it.

He didn’t and now the CIA gets to live with the disgrace that comes with being a laughingstock within the Intelligence Community.

“US DIPLOMATIC MISSION IN BENGHAZI UNDER ATTACK”

You mean, it didn’t read “BENGHAZI KNITTING CLUB HOSTS MIXER”?

I want to hear from the military whether or not there was any, and I mean any, support they could have had at Benghazi in time.

0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Critical Incident Report" alert. He did nothing.

They confirm everything Col. Hunt said about automatic notifications to the WH and add more details.

---------------------------------------------------------

For weeks now I have thought that the denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. I consider the lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack to be fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. I don't consider the inaction during the attack to be any of those.

The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.

ONE man had the authority to act that night.

ONE man deserted his post!

MISSIVES FROM LIBYA

The records obtained by Reuters consist of three emails dispatched by the State Department’s Operations Center to multiple government offices, including addresses at the White House, Pentagon, intelligence community and FBI, on the afternoon of September 11.

The first email, timed at 4:05 p.m. Washington time - or 10:05 p.m. Benghazi time, 20-30 minutes after the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission allegedly began - carried the subject line “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack” and the notation “SBU”, meaning “Sensitive But Unclassified.”

The text said the State Department’s regional security office had reported that the diplomatic mission in Benghazi was “under attack. Embassy in Tripoli reports approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well.”

The message continued: “Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four ... personnel are in the compound safe haven. The 17th of February militia is providing security support.”

A second email, headed “Update 1: U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi” and timed 4:54 p.m. Washington time, said that the Embassy in Tripoli had reported that “the firing at the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi had stopped and the compound had been cleared.” It said a “response team” was at the site attempting to locate missing personnel.

A third email, also marked SBU and sent at 6:07 p.m. Washington time, carried the subject line: “Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack.”

The message reported: “Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli.”

State and the WH WERE notified.

They have both been consistently trying to throw Petraeus and the CIA under the bus.

Don’t go there. Petraeus is a soldier’s soldier. In a job that entails being someone’s whipping boy when things go wrong.

Soros et al have wanted Petraeus’ hide for years. He knew. He gave those in authority the information they needed to authorize a strike/mission to rescue and defeat.

They WATCHED. It’s like the line from “Sin City” by the Catholic bishop: “He had me watch.”

I believe 0bama personally ordered Stevens to Benghazi.


Who was the diplomat/envoy that Stevens met with earlier in the evening? There is video of them shaking hands.

LOL! This is payback from the intelligence community for Obama/Biden's attempt to throw them under the bus over Benghazi. However, I thought they'd wait until after the election to bring down Zero. They must really be pissed. This scandal should finish the Obama campaign.

Something tells me Mr. Barry is going to develop a convenient case of Romnesia on this...


On a serious note, in light of this proof of our president and our secretary of defense blatantly lying about the rape, torture and murder of four Americans in Lybia, I think they should all be charged with high treason and dealt with as such by a military court.

Furthermore, with regard to the debate last night, what kind of man lays a trap for his opponent whose bait is those same raped, tortured and murdered dead Americans that he lied about for over a month?

WHAT KIND OF MAN lays such a trap?

Well, Mr. President, it looks like you just trapped yourself.

“Petraeus has turned out to be the worst Director of Central Intelligence in history.”

He reminds me of the corrupt police chief on the “Untouchables” movie looking out the window at his dead cops.

He’s been compromised since maybe before the leftist freaks stopped making mean ads against him and put him in charge of the CIA.
