CBS: Obama Admin Docs Show Warned of Imminent Benghazi Attack Days Before Deadly Assault
CBS New via Twitter ^ | Tuesday, March 5, 2013 | Sharyl Atkisson

Posted on 03/05/2013 6:47:04 PM PST by kristinn

CBS News has learned the Obama admin has turned Benghazi docs to senate intel comm

One source who viewed the docs says someone in a federal agency "press shop" was involved in changing the talking points to remove al Qaeda

An official familiar with the docs says there were warnings from Libya sent to Washington in the days leading up to the attack--(cont)

--that specifically warned of an imminent attack on the US compound in Benghazi

A source familiar with the docs says most every communication between Libya and DC from the start of the attacks referenced --

--al Qaeda or al Qaeda affiliates as being the likely instigators

A source who viewed the docs says the few that mentioned a protest on benghazi nite were not first hand references

Two sources believe Benghazi survivor info and transcripts still have not been provided in unredacted form to committee

Is there any confirmation from a reputable news source?

Not news. This was known before the election.

Well, the only thing to wait for now is the inevitable fumbling away of this one by our stalwart Republican leadership...

CBS isn't to be trusted, true.

But Sharyl Attkisson is the one major media reporter who dug into Fast & Furious and wouldn't let go.

So far, she's proven trustworthy.

The administration, we know, hates her guts.

Not "known", strongly "suspected".

Now it is confirmed. The administration had prior warning...and they knew from the git-go that it was al-Qaida, not a video.

Moreover, there is evidently something the survivors know that they don't want anybody else to know. They're being held on ice.

Some very damaging information here. But the only way it's getting out of the Senate Intelligence committee is via leak.

Just saw a tweet Atkisson reports-

‘Two sources believe Benghazi survivor info and transcripts still have not been provided in unredacted form to committee’

You know, it’s strange how stories that have the potential to damage Obama get no traction. There’s hardly any followup, no persistent question of Carney or Obama. They’re reported and then left to wither and die. So unlike it would be with a Repub President.

Maybe the “survivors” were prisoners and were released. Maybe that’s another in a series of many dirty little secrets of Benghazi.

Or maybe the survivors know of, or were involved in, say, running guns to Syria.

One thing's for sure: There is a deep, dark...and dirty...secret concerning Benghazi. The survivors are in on it. And the administration doesn't want it revealed.

I expect her to “eventually” go crazy any day now and kill her entire family in a murder/suicide. You know, that way she is thoroughly discredited and not a martyr... You know even though she will have put several rounds of DHS ammunition into her own head, As well as used several different caliber shells for the only pistol found at the scene that she used to put 6 rounds into her own head....

Expect it to happen....

Either that or there will be a “tragic accident”....

Unless she is a Hillary Agent, then all bets are off....

But...but Bush KNEW about 9/11! Even though it was planned during the Clinton administration.

I know it was only an act of war and all, but Obama knew and did...NOTHING. Well at least it was only 4 dead, including our ambassador, but still.

Think of the body count.

2400 dead from 9/11, only 2700 dead from the Obama drone attacks. And only 2000 dead Americans in Afghanistan.

But who's counting?

I know my newspaper doesn't count the dead on a daily basis anymore. Nor does the TV news.

So I guess it's OK then.

Team 0bama was repeatedly warned of an Al Qaeda attack in Benghazi on 9/11 and his entire administration immediately concluded 'a protest over an anti-Islam video'?????

I can see it now.. "Hey 0bama, Al Qaeda is going to attack Benghazi on 9/11 so make sure Chris Stevens is at his post with virtually NO security!!! Pronto!!!"

I don't know that CBS is reporting it. Sharyl Atkkisson is reporting it -- on the CBS Twitter feed.

I'm unaware of exactly what their reporting protocol might be. But I would imagine a reporter has the ability to post material on the network's Twitter feed, unedited and unsupervised.

We'll see where this goes tomorrow. That will tell us much.

The GOP can filibuster a Presidential appointee, but alas there just is no spine in this tired old party and I wish for God's sake someone would put it down, so the Tea Party could rise as a real political party.

54 min ago - "Senate committee approves Brennan as CIA director", almost done

JFK confirmed as Sec of State, done

Chuck Hagel confirmed as Sec of DOD, done

Meanwhile the illegal appointments made during a non-recess are still sitting in their positions and making decisions on a daily basis. IMPEACHMENT is never ever brought up. What do these Republicans stand for? Benchazi is 10x worse than Watergate was and the LEFTIES drove Tricky Dick from office.

See BS still won’t give her a minute of airtime. Too much Jodi Arias trial stuff to report! And the Queen is ill!

Just last month, Leon Panetta told the Senate:

"But there were no reports of imminent threats to U.S. personnel or facilities in Benghazi. Unfortunately, there was no specific intelligence or indications of an imminent attack on that - U.S. facilities in Benghazi. And frankly without an adequate warning, there was not enough time given the speed of the attack for armed military assets to respond."

And this matters why?

Does anyone really believe Boner or McConnell will pursue this? Boner is probably pleasuring himself at the thought of conceding to Obama before any objections have even been made.

I truly believe God's judgment has come to America.
