BENGHAZI: Documents show
Stevens worried about
security threats, al-Qaeda

Fox News, by James Rosen

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/19/2012 2:39:53 PM

Across 166 pages of internal State Department documents – released today by a pair of Republican congressmen pressing the Obama administration for more answers on the Benghazi terrorist attack – slain U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and the security officers assigned to protect him repeatedly sounded alarms to their superiors in Washington about the intensifying lawlessness and violence in Eastern Libya, where Stevens ultimately died. On September 11 – the day Stevens and three other Americans were killed – the ambassador signed a three-page cable, labeled “sensitive,” in which he noted “growing problems

In this case, the Crime (not protecting or fortifying the Embassy after repeated pleas) is far worse than the Cover Up.

You MUST read these cables from Benghazi. They are devastating. The Chicago amateurs crossed the wrong people.

Near the bottom of the article:

''In a letter to President Obama, dated October 19 and accompanied by the documents, the lawmakers faulted the administration both for providing inadequate security before 9/11, and for allegedly obfuscating the nature of the events on 9/11.''

It's out, an October surprise wrapped in a big, red ribbon.

How can anyone ignore this?

On September 11 – the day Stevens and three other Americans were killed – the ambassador signed a three-page cable, labeled “sensitive,” in which he noted “growing problems with security” in Benghazi and “growing frustration” on the part of local residents with Libyan police and security forces. These forces the ambassador characterized as “too weak to keep the country secure.”

In the document, Stevens also cited a meeting he had held two days earlier with local militia commanders. These men boasted to Stevens of exercising “control” over the Libyan Armed Forces, and threatened that if the U.S.-backed candidate for prime minister were to prevail in Libya’s internal political jockeying, “they would not continue to guarantee security in Benghazi.”


Criminal.

Article goes on to detail his previous communiques about the worsening situation - and this in a country he had long known and loved.

I'm sure this all came up, over and over again, during the briefings that Obama didn't attend due to his appearances on the View and Letterman and packing for Vegas and all.

He truly does not care. That was HIS ambassador. He does not care. He uses people and flings them aside. Dead, under the bus, whatever. Just don't bother him and the wife, they've got a plane to keep waiting.

Shouldn't Mitt ask Zippy why ValJar gets more personal security than an embassy in the ME ?

From what I have read, Steven's father supports Zippy. I don't get it.

Stevens was suppose to be a friend of Shillary. We know how that turns out.

Obie (ValJar?) wanted Libya to look normal. Happy campers enjoying their new "freedom".

The beefing up of security would spoil the image as word went out from the locals working security at the consulate to their families, etc., in the area. No, they needed the image of "normalization", achieved by sending security personnel home.

Never mind that everyone on the ground in Libya was saying "it's bad out here and growing worse - don't take our security - we need more, not less!!!!"

Political image in a presidential campaign trumped security for our citizens who had been sent to Libya. This is criminal.

#17, and no doubt everyone posting on this, i share the same emotion. And deep anger...

...anger that officials of the BO regime had and have so little regard for the lives of Americans in Libya (or anywhere else, for that matter, including right here)...

BO, as all marxistic types, has no respect for lives which are expendable when "the cause" demands their sacrifice. This is why there can be more than 100 million victims of communism over 70 years, unbelievable suffering, with NOT ONE WORD of regret or apology from the advocates of this stupid utopian scheme.

John Bolton says that BO is not ignorant, he is not incompetent. What we are seeing are the consequences of his ideology, played out on the world stage.

Bolton endorsed Romney during the Primaries. I HOPE HOPE HOPE that he is advising him now. Romney must know that a vast number of Americans are being deliberately kept ignorant. He must shine the light of truth on this grotesquerie.

The truth must be made stark and clear.

Tonight a special report on Benghazi on FOX.

Are we missing the point on Benghazi?
Obama claimed that on SUN in the Rose Garden he referred to "an act of terror." The OBVIOUS questio then should have been, "WHO told you that? Where did you get that information? When you are usually so ubercautious about a rush to judgment about terrorism, WHAT led you to IMMEDIATELY declare the Benghazi assault an "act of terror?"
Unfortunately, NOBODY ever asked that Obama that question! Instead, Rush et al went down another path, which was to insist that Obama was referring to 9/11/2011, which frankly is unclear, judging from his words alone. And then to go on about Susan Rice, etc. Obama has culpable deniability about any of that: the size of the bureaucracy...
TODAY, we learn that the intelligence station chief told "Washington" WITHIN 24 HOURS of the attack that it was terror-related? WHO is "Washington?" This is worded specifically so that Obama can argue his Benghazi response either way: that he KNEW or that the word just didn't get to him.
Not only has Hillary fallen on her sword, but now the intelligence station chief as well---by providing Obama with cover so he can claim that the Rose Garden reference to "acts of terror" was BASED ON verifiable intelligence reports given to him within 24 hours or the incident.
Is Obama constructing a careful backstory here and are we walking right into a trap?

#38 One must remember after the utterance in the Rose Garden 'terror' a week or so later the ambassador to the UN, Dr Rice and President Obama at the UN stated categorically that the disturbance in Benghazi with the murder of 4 Americans was caused by a 14 min amateur anti- muslim video. This is obviously a coverup orchestated by the WH and we the American People are still waiting for the answer. #38 this is a cover up of huge consequences.

#42 of course I agree w that. But I think the station chief has provided cover for Obama by announcing that he notified "Washington" within the first 24 hrs.
Someone should have confronted Obama when he & Crowley claimed that he had immediately labeled Benghazi as an act or terror. They should have asked why Obama would make such a completely out-of-character rush to judgment.

I want to see copies of the Daily Security briefs to know if the pleas from the Consulate for more security were included in those briefs; if the pleas were not included, I want to know why. If the pleas were included, I want to know if those briefs were the ones that 0b@$tard didn't deign to read and discuss with the "team," the people who gathered the info for the briefs.

I want to know WHEN and IF the Idiot in the White House knew about the prior breach in the wall at the consulate; a breach big enough for 40 people to walk through. Was there a report of that breach in his daily briefs?

Not one mention by anyone that I've heard so far about the Marxist pResident ignoring the Daily Briefs. No one mention it. Not by anyone.

Too much golf, too many celebrities to be entertained by, too many fund raisers. Too much acting like a newly-rich Chicago Ghetto Thug to pay attention to the security of the nation.

A disgrace.

But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School. Students were asked to read passages about a wife discovering her husband cheated and a mother finding out her military son was killed. They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department. She felt the pit of her stomach drop to the bottom of the earth before she even opened it. She knew it was news about John. As she read the first line,

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came. Armed.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is not interested in running for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, the New York Times reported. A Sebelius spokeswoman told the newspaper in a story posted late Thursday that the secretary is "continuing her important work at H.H.S. and is not considering a run for the Senate." Earlier this week, the Times reported Sebelius, who recently tendered her resignation from the high-profile Cabinet job, was "considering entreaties from Democrats" to run against GOP Sen. Pat Roberts back home in Kansas. President Obama announced Sebelius´ resignation last week and said he would

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
