U.S. KNEW…And We Didn’t Protect Our Own
September 13, 2012

Revenge. Not an accident.

At least 48 hours before the violent attack on the American compound in Benghazi, Libya, where four brave Americans died, our government KNEW the attack was coming.  And no warnings were given and no elevated security precautions were put in place to protect our people.

How will the Obama administration spin this one?

Here’s the latest from THE INDEPENDENT which has been leading on the story, and it’s riveting:

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American

Americans inside were trapped and Ambassador Christopher Stevens apparently was unable to escape incoming rockets.

missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.

Mr Stevens had been on a visit to Germany, Austria and Sweden and had just returned to Libya when the Benghazi trip took place with the US embassy’s security staff deciding that the trip could be undertaken safely.

Ambassador Stevens was one of the “good guys.” A great loss to the State Department.

Eight Americans, some from the military, were wounded in the attack which claimed the lives of Mr Stevens, Sean Smith, an information officer, and two US Marines. All staff from Benghazi have now been moved to the capital, Tripoli, and those whose work is deemed to be non-essential may be flown out of Libya.

In the meantime a Marine Corps FAST Anti-Terrorism Reaction Team has already arrived in the country from a base in Spain and other personnel are believed to be on the way. Additional units have been put on standby to move to other states where their presence may be needed in the outbreak of anti-American fury triggered by publicity about a film which demeaned the Prophet Mohamed.

The Libyan People Are Horrified Americans Were Attacked By Extremists.

A mob of several hundred stormed the US embassy in the Yemeni capital Sanaa yesterday. Other missions which have been put on special alert include almost all those in the Middle East, as well as in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Armenia, Burundi and Zambia.

Senior officials are increasingly convinced, however, that the ferocious nature of the Benghazi attack, in which rocket-propelled grenades were used, indicated it was not the result of spontaneous anger due to the video, called Innocence of Muslims. Patrick Kennedy, Under-Secretary at the State Department, said he was convinced the assault was planned due to its extensive nature and the proliferation of weapons.

Sorrow….all around.

There is growing belief that the attack was in revenge for the killing in a drone strike in Pakistan of Mohammed Hassan Qaed, an al-Qa’ida operative who was, as his nom-de-guerre Abu Yahya al-Libi suggests, from Libya, and timed for the anniversary of the 11 September attacks.”

Even more worrisome, the Libyans entrusted with security apparently….fled.

  1. What a LOAD of crap!  Irresponsible journalism should be subject to fines when untruths are printed. Newsflash… particularly on 9/11, every US diplomat on the face of the earth was on “high alert”. A Libyan security officer is now coming forward saying that up to three days befoe, he had forewarned a diplomat that he felt uneasy about a few things. No mention of who he spoke to and no mention of said diplomat’s reaction. How does that turn into Obama knowing beforehand? Totally IRRESPONSIBLE reporting just to play on heightened emotions — shameon you!

  2. Sorry we have to disagree! The State Department and The White House knew that the Libyan Embassy had been bombed and threatened just months before. Additional threat warnings had been given days before. There must be a deep ache for Hillary Clinton and the President….because there was no protection in a dangerous, dangerous place. The Libyan President seconds our description. Google it.
