Cable from Chris Stevens was chock full of reports on regional violence, concerns about local security capabilities
Just hours before he died in a terrorist attack at the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Ambassador Chris Stevens sent a cable to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton painting a chaotic, violent portrait of the eastern Libya city and warning that local militias were threatening to pull the security they afforded U.S. officials....
[snip] Militia leaders told U.S. officials just two days before the attack that they were angered by U.S. support of a particular candidate for Libyan prime minister and warned they would not continue to guarantee security in Benghazi, a critical function they asserted they were currently providing, Stevens wrote in the cable the morning of Sept. 11, 2012.
[snip] Stevens cable is likely to become a central focus of congressional hearings that begin Wednesday -- hearings where Clinton will be pressed to explain why security for diplomats in the region wasnt increased in the weeks before the attack and why so much reliance was placed on local security forces with dubious loyalties.

she lies tomorrow!
they can’t come out and admit this. they defeated terrorism one afternoon a few years ago. what happened in banghazi and algeria was not terrorism, we won’t treat it like terrorism, and if people have to die so we can support our delusion, then so be it.
I smell a relapse coming on. I saw a picture of her and Bubba at the inauguration yesterday. Maybe she’ll contract pneumonia from being out in the cold. The Clintons are so easy to see through.
Madam Clinton protecting Islamic Radicals then and is she protecting them now?
The current administration deliberately refused to protect the ambassador and other Americans so as not to annoy his co-religionists.
So this cable from the ambassador may or may not have been sent to Hillary personally.
Is Hillary's testimony behind closed doors?
some interesting questions should arise from the cable.....
Thin security here. Send detachments there. Until it's so thin that the enemy can take the place.
there are a LOT of questions open about Benghazi. A LOT!
You mean she got a new wighat like moosechelle antoinette? The cleopatra look is just so...........chi chi. LOL! But, not to worry, we are “looking in to” what happened in Benghazi even though we did “everything” and had all the “proper safeguards” in place. The fbi is investigating to get to the bottom of it and learn all the details. Where are the folks who made it out? Are they going to testify since they were there?...........crickets.
Kind of like what just happened in Algeria. Americans dead and the clownmander-in-chief is looking for a “fuller understanding” of what happened. WHAT? Some terrorists (and I ain’t talking about folks who showed up for gun appreciation day) attacked and killed Americans. husseins response..............crickets.
Correction. She lies EVERYDAY! Maybe just a little more tomorrow than usual.
Hillary will say nothing to hurt her chances for the Presidency in 2016. This is just more political theater. And Hillary will be the star of the show. The MSM will make her into a heroine and the Reps the villains.
At the end of the article make sure to Freep the Poll.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Has the State Department and Secretary Hillary Clinton been fully forthcoming about the Benghazi tragedy?

Colin Powell has admitted advising the Obama regime from the get go. Since he’s been so busy telling Republicans where to go. I suggest House foreign affairs committee subpoena (not request)subpoena Powell and order him to testify about Libya and Bengahzi. While seeking testimony around midpoint make sure to ask him if he voted or campaigned for the “creep”.
They’ve had plenty of time to formulate their excuses.
Bumps in the road.
