State Department emails from day of Libya attack show Al Qaeda-tied group on radar
Fox News ^ | 10-23-2012 | Chad Pergram

Posted on 10/23/2012 7:45:40 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

A series of internal State Department emails obtained by Fox News shows some some of the initial assessments of last month's deadly consulate attack in Libya, including one email within hours of the attack that noted that the group Ansar al Sharia had claimed responsibility.

Ansar al Sharia has been declared by the State Department to be a an Al Qaeda-affiliated group. A member of the group suspected of participating in the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi has been arrested and is being held in Tunisia.

The emails obtained by Fox News were sent by the State Department to a variety of national security platforms, whose addresses have been redacted, including the White House Situation Room, the Pentagon, the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence.

Fox announced this as breaking news and they had John Bolton and Sarah Palin commenting on it. (Greta VanSusteren show.) Sarah gave some scathing comments about how we have been lied to over and over. The interviews will no doubt be up on Greta's show later.

The next segment with Liz Cheney was also powerful...Obama will need to explain why he did not send military assistance to try to save the 4 Americans.

Facing bombshell revelations like this, *any* Republican president would be forced to resign within the week.

Well now none of this matters because the girls and women are gonna get pist because another Republican Senate candidate found it necessary to open up the rape/abortion black hole at the end of his public pronouncements in Indiana today.

I know it's not on the subject, but in the light of the campaigns, it actually is in a way...

Obama’s acknowledgment on receiving a phone call from consulate in Benghazi. Did he really say this in the second debate?
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/22/transcript-presidential-debate-on-foreign-policy-at-lynn-university/

Obama “Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way;”

On September 11, at about 10 p.m. Libyan time (4 p.m. in Washington), Ambassador Chris Stevens and a small staff were inside our consulate in Benghazi when terrorists attacked. The consulate staff immediately contacted Washington and our embassy in Tripoli.

Maybe Fox should file an FOIA request for the drone video that the people at State were watching in real time.

Both transcripts, Obama in the last debate talking about Libya in 2nd debate,

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/22/transcript-presidential-debate-on-foreign-policy-at-lynn-university/

Obama “Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call”

Transcript of Second Presidential Debate
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/16/transcript-second-presidential-debate/

OBAMA: “So as soon as we found out that the Benghazi consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team and I gave them three instructions.

Number one, beef up our security and procedures, not just in Libya, but at every embassy and consulate in the region.

Number two, investigate exactly what happened, regardless of where the facts lead us, to make sure folks are held accountable and it doesn’t happen again.

And number three, we are going to find out who did this and we’re going to hunt them down, because one of the things that I’ve said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with Americans, we go after them.”

Hillary had to have been one knucklhead to fall in with the White House lie by first avoiding her own department intellegence, and keeping it deep sixed until the Issa Committee called in the boys in the know and exposed her without naming her. Hillary is untouchable on both sides of the aisle for the political blow back that comes with either side nailing her to the wall.

She claims to have cables that exonerate her, for calling for increased security. Let Issa call for them. Let her produce them. She has had plenty of time to manufacture them. If her orders are ignored as she claims, surely she knew Chris Stevens was still begging for more, then she should RESIGN.

Where WAS she anyway that night when all hell was breaking loose for her people? Out eating?

Bet Hillary’s name never came up in Republican zeal to get Obama.

I am most assured Obama is forced to take Hillary’s blame, so Hillary gets her revenge.

Turns out the smartest woman in the world is a boob in office.

It is rather nice to see at least that Fox is not letting up on this national blunder carried out by this administration.
I will not place blame on the DOD, CENTCOM, and the CIA on this one.
Their options are not on the table unless the POTUS directs them to move quickly and take care of business.
It has become rather crystal clear over the past few weeks the White House and the Department of State screwed the pooch in a huge way.
Dereliction of duty is the only adjective that seems appropriate.

Amazing! Someone gets it. Good for brilliant Liz. I would like to know where she has been, since she had to walk back the lie she participated in?

I can tell you she & Bill are in Haiti now, with Sean Penn! Bill is sharing romantic stories of their honeymoon there. Sickening. She is a definite run away trying to lean on Bill to salvage her sorry legacy.

This is pretty hot news...will probably run that story off of the front cover...

Did you see the Glenn Beck thread and the Gaffney thread.

This gunrunning may just explode all the way to the MSM.

How can a local Yemen group of Salafist retreads,

that formed up in May 2011 according to the above report dated 5 April 2012 that fails to even mention Brik, the alleged second in command of Ansar Al Sharia

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-09-24/tunisian-salafi-arrested-in-connection-with-u-s-embassy-attack.html
