Posted on 11/01/2012 3:36:50 PM PDT by TigerClaws
CBS News has learned that during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Obama Administration did not convene its top interagency counterterrorism resource: the Counterterrorism Security Group, (CSG).
"The CSG is the one group that's supposed to know what resources every agency has. They know of multiple options and have the ability to coordinate counterterrorism assets across all the agencies," a high-ranking government official told CBS News. "They were not allowed to do their job. They were not called upon."

These must be some of the emails that Gingrich was talking about yesterday. It was thought that one of the MSM holders of the emails was CBS.
It's almost time for the Friday news dump, but I think there might be some in the MSM who actually would like this to get out sooner. If nothing else, they'd like to scoop the other source that supposedly has these emails.
Four other embassies had been attacked on Sept. 11th before the consulate in Benghazi was. What would it take to cause 0coward and his buttmonkeys to become concerned about our personnel overseas?
And CBS, why didst thou not conveneth to cover this story?
either congress needs to have an immediate cow... or immediately defund the agency
you can’t claim it’s essential and not use them
Obama vs Intel Community
More details in the CBS article. It makes it sound like the Keystone cops were running around in Washington. A MUST READ article.
“Another senior counter terrorism official says a hostage rescue team was alternately asked to get ready and then stand down throughout the night, as officials seemed unable to make up their minds.”
RE: AFICOM: “Forces were positioned after the fact but not much good to those that needed it,” the military source told CBS News.
And even then, it will be quite temporary.
..of course they weren't called upon, it would have meant more people to convince it was about a YT video and because they would have known better, they would have told the truth
Lots of good reporting and truly damning quotes in this story from See B.S.
Drip Drip Drip
The panel on bret’s show are blowing this all apart. This story is being widely reported and engaged for the first time.
This needs to be breaking and bump bump bumped.
Will the information damn burst before Tuesday. My bet is it will.
Sounds like this story is coming back into the public eye again.
We’ll see if they run it as a story on the evening news, as opposed to an internet article.
Does CBS’s ‘sudden’ finding and story have anything to do with Glenn Beck’s threat from yesterday?
Shouldn’t the CSG be activated on Sept 11 just as a precaution?
The fact that Romney made a statement first is why they decided to blame the Youtube Video, to turn Mitt’s factual statement into a “gaffe”.
Seriously, I actually believe that.
Then they were stuck with it for 2 weeks. It also covered up their lack of action, which they hoped would clear them until the election.
All my opinion, of course.
They did today per the Panel Fox news just now
This little nugget has me putting on my tinfoil hat and beginning to think that maybe this was a planned kidnapping gone wrong, as others have suggested.
This story broke 1 min. after Beck’s show. Connect the dots
