U.S. denies premeditation report
Politica ^ | 9/13/2012 | MIKE ALLEN

Posted on 09/13/2012 6:51:25 PM PDT by TBBT

The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a “continuing security breach,” and that “credible information” about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: “There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”

Well Politico, ...but Egyptian Intelligence was Publically claiming that they had warned the US and Israeli Embassies a week before, this story was in the news on the day of 9/11.

There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”

That is not a denial of having received and subsequently ignored prior intelligence of an impending hostile action. Watch and parse the statements of those shifty rat traitors closely.

"If this can be proven"

Hah....with Holder's "Justice Department"????

The Evidence will be shredded, lost, stolen, hidden, etc., as in everything this Administration does. The State-Run-Media will spout the Talking Points, if any, and distract with meaningless drivel about Romney's Income Tax non-disclosure.

If all else fails, they'll use the "National Security" or Executive Privelege excuses to keep the facts from being heard or seen.

““There’s no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.””

That’s because he skipped all the intelligence briefings.

For Obama, there is never any crime, because no law applies to him. His is a nation of men, not laws. He is himself a man of lawlessness.

OK FOLKS !! LISTEN UP ! SPREAD THE NEWS AROUND !!

The US got Intel reports from Egypt that there were going to be attacks on Israeli and US Embassies...

It's not that they had 48 hours in advance of this coordinated attack, this Administration had time since September 4th, a whole week in advance of these attacks..

“Read more”

How much bullsh!t can they throw at us? I don’t want to ‘read more’. All I am seeing is one lie after another after another. Israel AND the US both had intel. This intel was passed on to the US by both Egypt AND Israel. obama ignored it and now he has the crisis he has dreamed of since the day he took office.

Exactly. Effin' Politico is the official lapdog stenographer of Barack Hussein Obama.

Politico's mission is to ensure that The One is re-elected at any cost.

Here's the story from the UK's "Independent", a liberal newspaper, btw:

Exclusive: America 'was warned of embassy attack but did nothing'

True but Im hoping that if Fox News starts reporting on it maybe the rest of the Obama media will have no choice but to report it. More people watch Fox News than the other Networks.

“There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”

Of course there wasn't. Obama REFUSED to take Netanyahu's REPEATED requests for an hour long conference with Obama in the week leading up to the attacks. He likely had pertinent leads/credible reports from their very capable intelligence gatherers. In addition, Obama and his appointees have no intelligence. So, between these two facts, how could there be 'any intelligence indicating' that there was an impending attack???

NOTE TO OBAMA'S MEDIA WHORES: Obama is responsible for the sodomy and murder of a U.S. Ambassador, the murders of two former Navy Seals, and the besieging of now MULTIPLE American embassies in the Middle East and the MEDIA is responsible for enabling these atrocities because of your HATRED for America.

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,

Hmmmmm. So it's "senior diplomatic officials" vs. the Obama administration.

Who are these senior whistle-blowers?

Seems to me that Zawahiri memo calling for Friday's day of rage might be considered "actionable intelligence" BTW.

Egypt intelligence warns (on Sept 4th) of attacks on Israel, US embassies

Egypt's General Intelligence Service warned that a jihadi group is planning to launch terrorist attacks against the US and Israeli embassies in Cairo, according to a report Tuesday by Egypt Independent, citing a secret letter obtained by Al-Masry Al-Youm.

According to the report, the attack is being planned by Global Jihad, the group suspected of killing 16 Egyptian border guards in Sinai on August 5.

Al-Masry Al-Youm reportedly obtained a copy of the September 4 letter, sent to all Egyptian security sectors, warning that Sinai- and Gaza-based Global Jihad cells were planning attacks on the two embassies.

Why is it that ONLY American embassies are being attacked. Why aren't any Israeli embassies being beseiged? Oh, could it possibly be because the animals called Muslims are afraid of Bebe? They know he'd wipe them out. Obama's a traitor to America.
