Were We Warned?

By Rich Lowry

September 13, 2012 11:37 P.M. Comments3

From the Independent (prominently featured on Drudge):

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US 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, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.

Clinton and Obama might just as well have put bullets in the head of those four poor souls. This report came from our own state department.

Does this mean Hillary is forever toast too, burned by her own “smart power”?

October surprise...now Obummer will get a November surprise. Or maybe not, if he wanted to lose an election what more could he be doing, short of strapping on an Uzi?

Collateral damage. Obama needs a war. Early October would do just fine.

This could be the end of Hillary’s presidential ambitions just as Chappaquidick and its coverup was the end of Ted Kennedy’s ambitions.

The innocent always have to die before Americans wake up and see what arrogance, self-centered shits and traitors we have in the incompetent ans self-centered Democrat Party leadership and in Congress/White House.

Obama is a traitor besides being a racist fool, arrogant, delusional marxist Chavez wannabe.

If America screws up on Nov. 6th, kiss our country goodby. There will be no second chance.

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

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

Congress was warned about Libya last month

-------------------------------------------------------

U.S. denies premeditation report
"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.”"

"Can you spell 'incompetence?'"

"I, uh, hello? Hello!?!"

"I knew you could!"

And to think that the msm was only interested in when Romney issued his statement critical of Dear Reader!

Congress should demand that the President and Sec. of State appear before the Foreign Affairs Committee next week. They need to find out who is responsible for this flagrant dereliction of duty. When there are dead Americans coming to Andrews AFB today, we no longer can pretend we have leaders who know what they are doing.

I am more convinced than ever it was false flag. US false flag orders go out to AQ actors in Cairo and libya, security apparatus detects and reports threat, intel on threat goes ignored by USA, Kinectic against Ambassador and embassy occurs, people die, Clinton and Obama not surprised, lament dbad day after apologies.

Classic false flag cockup killing Americans on order of CIC.

Will happen all over mid east and Europe tomorrow, in muslim countries, after prayers. The horse is out of the barn now, will go crazy 3 times.

"Impeach the treasonous bastard bastard and run him out of Dodge!"

I agree Jim - I think we are witnessing the complete evaporation of mr. obama's presidency and we haven't even gotten to the Friday "Call to arms" ... oops, I mean "Prayers" yet.

This has '79 Carter written all over it, I'm just really sorry that more good American's will probably be lost before its over.

Prayers to the soldiers and may God help us and the brave soles caught in the middle of Obama's incompetence!

This just has to be a turning point week, against Obama.

Ulsterman’s “insider” reported weeks ago, that a desperate move in foreign engagement wouldn’t be far fetched, if the race is close. This race is close, but what has blown up this week is too out of control to be orchestrated by Obama, or to turn out well.

They probably used the warning period to make sure our soldier’s guns were unloaded.

You are completely correct RitaOK - What we are witnessing is complete incompetence on display and even the old time democrats can't even deny it.

There is no way Clinton would put up with an Ambassador being treated like this and neither would any other democrat President (besides Carter).

I think this seals the end of the obama error

Impeaching him is a wish unlikely to come true. Too bad about that, I'd love to see him go to prison as well. Next best is that he's slaughtered in the elections.

It was the anniversary of 9/11.
They had 48 hours warning.
Guards were not allowed ammunition.
That muzzie sob has blood on his hands.
Impeach him now!

Fast and Furious is really bad, this crap is much worse; its a global embarrassment in real time.

Just my opinion

Jim, my feelings, exactly!!! Obama must go, and.....so must Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta!!! If the Democrat Party had one iota of a brain (It does not), they would march up to the White House and demand that this traitor, POTUS Obama resign immediately, and if he refuses, they should move to impeach him that very day.

Obama and Clinton have the blood of innocent American public servants on their filthy “traitor” hands!!! Democrats, do it, or you will not be a viable political party after November 6, 2012.

Of course its no reason to take our eyes off Fast and Furious!

Keep going on all fronts!

mr. obama is a fraud and an incompetent and we haven't even concluded if he is eligible to hold the office that he has been elevated to.

The whole last 4 years have been a disaster ... lets correct the situation!

Now we’re hearing the infamous video has a ghost producer, according to one of the Drudge stories, that led nowhere, but State flagged it when it appeared first on Arab broadcast internet. State didn’t call attention to it, not wanting to cry wolf over any particular production.

Set up?
