British newspaper: USA warned of attack 48 hours in advance but did nothing

quote:

Revealed: inside story of US envoy's assassination
Exclusive: America 'was warned of embassy attack but did nothing'


The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the result of a serious and continuing security breach, The Independent can reveal.

American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.

The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".

Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.

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

I wonder how badly this will hurt our intelligence capabilities over there.

Maybe this was one of those briefings Obama missed.

Not only is the Obama Administration corrupt and incompetent, so is the US mainstream media. We have to rely on the UK to get this news.

The Enquirer is better news than NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN.

International press not on "the team" for Obama.

Stop blaming Obama and his administration. This is the work of the most powerful man in the world, a video producer.

It's not Obama's fault for this. He didn't know. How could he? He wasn't in any of the intelligence meetings.
