U.S. officials believe that an attack on a U.S. Consulate in Libya resulting in the death of an American ambassador may have been planned and not solely the actions of a spontaneous mob demonstrating against an online video ridiculing Islam's Prophet Muhammad.
"This was a coordinated attack, more of a commando-style event," House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., told CBS News Capitol Hill producer Jill Jackson. "It had both coordinated fire -- direct fire and indirect fire. There appeared to be military maneuvers approaching the facility."(continued)

But by whom?
The Moslem Brotherhood in the Lincoln Bedroom.
One thing I have been attempting to understand:
Are our embassies guarded by our military?
Are they armed?
What are their Rules of Engagement?
Why were the first terrorists who broke past the fence not mowed down?
It’s absolutely inane to think it wasn’t a planned attack. September 11th? Of course it was planned!
Are the Marines allowed to fire on violent armed mobs breaching the perimeter?
Two Marines were among the four Americans killed. So far no word about the ROE. But there IS word that we were warned and obama ignored it...has not attended security briefings for months and no meetings with intel at all in the week leading up to this. Security was not beefed up at any of our embassies on 9/11. In Egypt, they were sent home early.
Not the Iraq embassy it wont.
Higgledy-piggledy pogroms typically don’t have RPG’s and military tactics at their disposal.
Who currently sits in the White House and who is his secretary of state?
Even worse, obama posted a love video to muslims on arab forums on 9/11 telling them how wonderful they are on the day we mourned our dead at THEIR hands. Words cannot express....
As 2ndDivisionVet said. In addition Ambassadors are in command of the USMC at the embassy and set ROE. Note that this is not always in accordance with State Dept nor even National Policy, though the Ambassor might get called down or replaced.
During the early days of the Viet Nam war the early efforts of MACV-SOG chasing VC and NVA infiltrating from Laos were stymied by the US Ambassador to Laos. He refused to grant his ‘permission’ to allow SF Hatchet Forces to cross the border searching for NVA supply and command centers.
Duh !!!!! a planned 9/11 event ,,, you bet ,,, and now that the early apology came from our embassy in reference to that 17 min. anti-mohammed movie they can use that as an excuse instead of the president’s bragging of how he killed UBL .
The mob was chanting “ we are Osama’s 0bama “ .
Is the ambassador already dead in that photo?
Gee, ya think?
According to one of the doctors who regularly show up on Fox, the dark marking around his mouth suggests that he has expired - because of smoke inhalation.
I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when this broke two years ago.
Martha McCallum was saying the locals claimed Stevens was ‘killed by his own puppets.’
