DAMNING CHARGES: U.S. WARNED OF LIBYA ATTACK 48 HOURS IN ADVANCE – AND DID NOTHING
As I write this post at 8:30 AM, EST, I look forward to the nervous statements sure to come later today from multiple Regime officials in response to reports that not only was the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya a coordinated effort planned well in advance – which resulted in the brutal murder of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and the deaths of three other Americans, including two former Navy SEALS – but that the Regime was given at least a 48-hour heads-up – and did nothing to prevent it. Yep, the denials, obfuscations, and claims that we’re “reading way too much into these reports” are as sure to come as is Barack Obama’s next Hollywood fundraiser.
After all, we’ve “been there – done that” with the Regime in the past – many times. Hell – just yesterday, following O’s major gaffe – telling a Latin radio station (still feverishly working the Hispanic vote, I see) that he didn’t consider Egypt to be a U.S. ally – O’s poodle (Jay Carney) raced out to tell us that we were “reading way too much into” O’s comment. Really? The “oopsie” was threefold:
First, O said – as clearly as can be said: “I don’t think that we would consider them an ally.”
Second, Propaganda Minister Carney, trying his best to extricate his boss from an embarrassing misstatement of epic proportions, particularly given the current crisis, said this: “The President, in diplomatic and legal terms, was speaking correctly – that we do not have an alliance treaty with Egypt. ‘Ally’ is a legal term of art.” (P.S. Jay, no one said anything about a “treaty,” did they?)
Third, Egypt was designated as a “‘Major Non-NATO Ally” in 1989 when the U.S. Congress passed a law creating that status. Apparently neither O nor his mouthpiece got the memo on the 1989 law – and it’s classification of Egypt. (Of course, given O’s past behavior, we can safely assume that he’s simply decided to ignore the 1989 law.)
From The Independent:
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.
According to senior diplomatic sources, the U.S. 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.
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.
Yet, everyone from Hillary to the sock puppets of the Obama Media Group continue to drone on – non-stop – about the “disgusting and reprehensible” film – which “hurt the religious feelings” of Muslims. This is what they want you to believe, America. Because, if you don’t – you’ll look for other reasons – and begin to believe the truth.
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, as his nom-de-guerre, Abu Yahya al-Libi suggests, was from Libya. It is also believed that the attack was timed for the anniversary of the 11 September attacks. Continue reading…
So, as I said at the top, today’s protestations from the Regime will be interesting – as will the frantic spin (and disinformation) which will be put out – ad nauseum – by the Obama Media Group. Should be a “great” day for the Regime – can’t wait for it to unfold.
Moreover, as the facts become more clearly known in the coming days, the Regime will retrench like no administration has retrenched before. Not since the days of Richard Nixon, anyway.
