Fiasco: 15 days later, FBI still canít gain access to Benghazi consulate
HOT AIR ^ | 27Sept12 | ALLAHPUNDIT

I know you’ve already read a bunch of Libya posts today but you’re going to have to read a few more because this is indeed now a “major scandal,” from the lack of security at the consulate before the attack to the White House lies afterward about a “spontaneous” reaction to the Mohammed movie to the baffling failure of the FBI to get access to the consulate afterward. Two possibilities, neither one good for the administration. Either the FBI’s been frozen out by bureaucratic infighting or they can’t get access due to the Libyan government’s inability — or unwillingness — to secure the building for a few days of investigation. Whatever the answer, as veteran Robert Caruso said today on Twitter, it’s hard to have a law-enforcement approach to terrorism without law enforcement.

There's a strange misconception about our embassies overseas and how they're "sovereign US soil". Having worked in Baghdad doing security for 4 years, that isn't the case. The Iraqi's can show up tomorrow and tell the US Ambassador and everyone else to leave. They don't out of diplomacy and knowing that all of their folks will be asked to leave the US, thus shutting them out from all their Muslim Sympathizer friends on the Left.

Its no different for anyone else: The Marines, Private Security Contractors, etc etc. The host country allows them to enter and do their jobs. Anything else and you're risking war.

So the FBI, not being in Benghazi is a big deal, but if the Libyans aren't letting them in, the tuff sh*t on them. If that's the case, its obvious that they have absolutely no respect for the current occupant of the White House.

Simple explanation.

The muzzie in cheif is too pussified by the Muslim Brotherhood to take any action.

I was reading yesterday where the MB has given the King of Jordan a deadline to surrender and leave. Otherwise the Arab Spring will bust his chops as well. One by one, the dominoes are falling and the terrorists are taking control. And the White Hut is too chicken (bleep) to stand up to them.

But CNN was already there and they got Steven’s diary which proves Obama was LYING about the situation in Libya.

As long as there is an embassy, it is indeed sovereign territory. Countries may choose to break diplomatic relations, but in that case they are obliged to let the Diplomats and staffers depart the country peacefully.

Anything else, such as the Iranian takeover of our embassy under Carter, is an act of war, and recognized as such by international law and custom for more than a thousand years.

What happened in Egypt and Libya was a severe breach of our soverereignty, and in both cases the governments (installed by Obama and Hillary) were complicit, and should have been held accountable.

Instead, Obama simply ignored the whole thing. The U.S. has sovereign rights? Of course not. Only other nations have sovereign rights—as long as they are politically correct sorts of nations. Israel doesn’t count, and neither did Libya under its former ruler.

Another possible explanation: The Administration doesn't want the FBI to get there or do a meaningful investigation. They just wanted the shield that they didn't have to talk about it because there was an investigation.

Considering they are pulling everyone out now, I doubt the FBI will be gaining access anytime in the foreseeable future.

Gosh, I didn’t realize the 82nd Airborne had run out of parachutes. We used to be able to deliver Marines anywhere on Earth overnight, regardless of whether or not the ‘host’ country wanted them. Guess we should get all our troops ‘Press Credentials’ now so they can at least have the same access as CNN.

I really don't understand why they even need to go there. Everything they need is most likely in cables, emails and other correspondence in an office or two in the State Department and the White House. Plus there is the journal. They DON'T WANT AN INVESTIGATION.

Come on guys, we got to treat this as a law enforcement issue and let the FBI make some arrests.

Times are tough , the economy sucks and Eric Holder and all the lawyers he brought with him to DOJ from his law firm have to have some one to represent once they get sent back to the private sector in January

It's not like they will be able to back to their old jobs doing ‘pro bono’ work getting the terrorists currently being held at Gitmo sprung from jail because Obama will have released all the prisoners before he leaves office

Using your statement, my point is more that our embassies are only as sovereign as our country and government are willing to make them so.

If we have a pantywaist, muslim sympathizer in the White House, then we have no such thing as sovereignty.

Your post is very informative and accurate, in regards to the legal situation, but the reality in Libya is very abberant.

Even before the awful murder of Ambassador Stevens, the Libyan govt had disregarded the principle of diplomatic immunity by imprisoning an Australian lawyer who was let into the country as a representative of international court. It was very difficult to get Melinda Taylor released. This was a curtain raiser for the events in Benghazi.

B-HO is not too chicken. This was his goal from Day One: to assist the Muslim Brotherhood in taking over the Middle East.
