CBS story: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57511043/assault-on-u.s-consulate-in-benghazi-leaves-4-dead-including-u.s-ambassador-j-christopher-stevens/?tag=stack

CBS story quote, about half-way down: “He said Stevens, 52, and other officials were moved to a second building - deemed safer - after the initial wave of protests at the consulate compound. According to al-Sharef, members of the Libyan security team seem to have indicated to the protesters the building to which the American officials had been relocated, and that building then came under attack.”

On another post, one of the embassy staff sent an e-mail that the Libyan security guys were taking photographs of the place the night before.

Nice of -bama to help these guys to power, wasn’t it?

Also see US official killed in Libya was a senior Eve Online player, especially the lines about half-way down that read...

"Gianturco shared a chat room message posted by Vile Rat, presumably from earlier that day.

"(12:54:09 PM) vile_rat: assuming we don't die tonight. We saw one of our 'police' that guard the compound taking pictures."

Either that or yesterday was just a day of many unfortunate coincidences.

We don't support Israeli attack, US tells Iran

Yesterday was a terrible day. Israel was rebuffed and there were signals being sent to the MB and Iran. 0bama is giving the "go ahead" signal to the Muslim world to take out Israel.

Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.

Both are Traitor Losers who hate America!

Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.

A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.

Thanks to RushIsMyTeddyBear and Focaulut's Pendulum and for these graphic art realities!

It's my understanding that the State Dept has leaned heavily Left for some time. I would imagine this ambassador that was killed was strongly sympathetic with this administration's policies regarding their approach to Islam and the Mideast. So now I wonder will other Lefties in the State dept. possibly reconsider their ideology for the sake of their own survival? Obama considers them expendable. Do they?

“I guess all that foreign policy stuff the Dems of neen touting went down the toilet yesterday. Rommney ought to be all over it.”

All the leftist freaks are talking about and ridiculing today is what little Romney HAS said about it. Bashing him for politicizing this, etc.

He should be filibustering ALL DAY LONG about it, but I’m guessing his handlers are telling him not to give his domestic enemies more ammunition.

Or as nuconvert tells us, wait for more info to come out, the media might be telling us the truth. Right.

Tin Foil hat time.

We know 0bama’s good buddies Bernadette Dorn and Bill Ayres were instrumental in coordination with the “Arab Spring”. They have extensive contacts with the groups behind the “Arab Spring”.

One area 0bama is leading on in the polls is Foreign Policy

Is the current crises in the ME a Obama “Reichstag Fire” designed to distract attention from Obama disaster corrupt incompetence on the Economy on to an area his is wrongly assumed to be competent on?

Did the Obama team assume a crises in foreign policy would generate a “Rally to flag” effect and help 0 in the election?

I know, it sounds utterly insane but when you know the people around Obama, it is not so far fetched. These people really are as amoral and political corrupt as this.

“It’s my understanding that the State Dept has leaned heavily Left for some time.”

Yes.

“I would imagine this ambassador that was killed was strongly sympathetic with this administration’s policies regarding their approach to Islam and the Mideast.”

He was special envoy to the Libyan rebels. He said he was proud of taking part in their revolution. Looks like they turned on him.

“So now I wonder will other Lefties in the State dept. possibly reconsider their ideology for the sake of their own survival?”

I doubt it. They won’t reconsider the ideology, they’ll just seek to transfer to safer desks in Foggy Bottom. Hire some new young idealists and they can do the dying.

“Obama considers them expendable.”

The answer to this is clearly YES.

Anyone know how many people in the mob were killed by the Marine guards?

My guess?

ZERO!

Can't wait to read “Obama’s Rules of Engagement” that the Marines were forced to live with.

Does the State Department even allow them to load their weapons?

CBS News: Libyan Security team move Ambassador, then told mob

Present tense to past tense in a title? That's pathetic. I remember when journalists cared about grammar.

I also remember when democrats were patriotic and loved America. In those days, JFK, LBJ, and so many other leaders of their party would not have tolerated such an attack or any politician who ignored an attack on our country. Today, the dems see it as a chance to apologize again. I'm not fond of the spending policies of the dems, even decades ago, but as with the writing skills of journalists, what has happened to the patriotism of that party is pathetic.

No, I think Obama now has another major problem on his hand that he is ill-equiped to handle.

The reports that:
- apologies were made for the Americans who encouraged the attacks
- Obama didn’t attend daily security briefings the entire week prior
- the attacks were coordinated; despite an “Arab Spring”

will absolutely be devastating for his campaign. There is no way out of this for Obama. Some of the press is trying to place some sort of blame on Romney (???) but no one is buying it. Even if he does what is right (immediate military retaliation and cut off all aid to Egypt) there will still be questions about the meetings he skipped and his gross misjudgement of muslim intentions.

But he won’t do what is right. With no military experience and a history of bumbling diplomatic actions, Obama will take minimal action, thus demonstrating his weak resolve and open Americans to more attacks.

One thing we must remember is that there was a civil war in Libya. Islamists and secularists I imagine are still struggling to install their preferred form of government. And Gaddafi supporters are still lurking in the background. Who knows what sub groups of plotters may be involved and which is their allegiance? I doubt Obama or State know either.
