New documents found in Benghazi consulate; O not participating in investigaton


Documents found lying on floor of what was left of consulate:

quote:

The two unsigned draft letters are both dated Sept. 11 and express strong fears about the security situation at the compound on what would turn out to be a tragic day. They also indicate that Stevens and his team had officially requested additional security at the Benghazi compound for his visit — and that they apparently did not feel it was being provided.

One letter, written on Sept. 11 and addressed to Mohamed Obeidi, the head of the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ office in Benghazi, reads:

“Finally, early this morning at 0643, September 11, 2012, one of our diligent guards made a troubling report. Near our main gate, a member of the police force was seen in the upper level of a building across from our compound. It is reported that this person was photographing the inside of the U.S. special mission and furthermore that this person was part of the police unit sent to protect the mission. The police car stationed where this event occurred was number 322.”


“On Sunday, September 9, 2012, the U.S. mission requested additional police support at our compound for the duration of U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens’ visit. We requested daily, twenty-four hour police protection at the front and rear of the U.S. mission as well as a roving patrol. In addition we requested the services of a police explosive detection dog,” the letter reads.

“We were given assurances from the highest authorities in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that all due support would be provided for Ambassador Stevens’ visit to Benghazi. However, we are saddened to report that we have only received an occasional police presence at our main gate. Many hours pass when we have no police support at all.”


Obama not participating in investigation:

quote:

Today, the White House press secretary let it slip during a press gaggle aboard Air Force One that President Obama’s inaction on the Benghazi situation now extends to inaction on the supposed investigation taking place. The administration has still not made clear what exactly is being investigated, or the extent of the investigation.

And President Obama doesn’t much care. Said Carney: “He has not participated in the investigation. He is anticipating results that show us exactly what happened and who is responsible and what lessons we can learn from it and ensure it never happens again. He expects the investigation to be rigorous.”



Defense officials decide they are not going to take the fall for this:


quote:

It’s unlikely any outside military team could have arrived in Benghazi quickly enough to save Ambassador Chris Stevens or his colleague Sean Smith, both of whom died from smoke inhalation after a band of more than 100 men overran the U.S. mission at around 9:30 p.m. that evening and set the buildings inside ablaze.

But military backup may have made a difference at around five the following morning, when a second wave of attackers assaulted the CIA annex where embassy personnel had taken refuge.

It was during this second wave of attacks that two ex-SEALs working for the CIA’s security teams—Glenn Dougherty and Tyrone Woods—were killed in a mortar strike… “The State Department is responsible for assessing security at its diplomatic installations and for requesting support from other government agencies if they need it,” a senior U.S. Defense official said.

“There was no request from the Department of State to intervene militarily on the night of the attack.” The president, however, would have the final say as to whether or not to send in the military.

And 9/11 was treated like any other day even with the advance notices. Administration position: Don't upset the "Al Quaida is on the run" paradigm. Amateurs.

shite is about to get real.

Fox just broke more news on this, apparently claiming that the teams designed to counter these types of incidents were never called. (In a nut shell).

I know what everyone will say...oh its FOX, but they just reported that CBS is about to run with it as well as others.

contacting them would have been admitting terrorism, and this dude would rather watch people die, then admit that he and his policies domestic and over seas do not work. frick, obama sucks. he's solely been focused on keeping this as quiet as possible until after the 6th.

Obama lied and our Ambassador fried and died.


I hope this takes down Hillary as well.

shite is about to get real.

They better hope that they come out with a made up jobs report, because this could gain some traction.

I keep thinking that, but it never seems to happen. NBC or someone will run an evening story, then Benghazi fades into nothingness again. It's unbelievable and infuriating.

They were in the safe room of the main building consulate which was over run and set on fire by the insurgents.

They were trapped, and tried to escape through several windows, one of the personnel escaped and went back in several times to find Stevens and the other security personnel.

ETA: But never found them.
