On Thursday, the White House denied that it had advance warning that embassies in the Middle East might be targeted for attacks on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11, Politico reported.
"We are not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent, Shawn Turner, spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said in an email.
A report in the Independent said that "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."

Statement’s so full of weasel words, it must have been written by Hillary. Or maybe by Huma, with help from her ferret-like husband.
” A Warning is not the same thing as an Advisory...”
this is the line of BS they’ll feed us next.
Hmmm ,did Canada know something when they closed their embassy in Iran and booted the Iranians from Canada and did they inform the US
We warned them of this day 4 years ago when Obama won.
They had a 4 year warning.
What kind of idiot doesn’t know that radical Muslims could attack American property somewhere to “celebrate” their 9/11 attack? The possibility of an attack on American embassies should always be prepared for on or near the anniversary of 9/11 with or without “intelligence” indicating the possibility of an attack.
Yeah, we knowthey never lie. Right!
yep .. the key word is “actionable”... they were warned but it was not “actionable”...
But that's understandable. That time consuming fund raising must be tended to!
They had some sort of inclination that an attack might be made , so they gave the Marines a day off and left the joint unguarded.
That’s how smart our State Department is.
Local news made sure they covered the fact that BO wasn’t leaving DC for another fundraiser until Monday but failed to mention the one he is having in DC tonight.
Key words/evidence that they are lying:
-planned or imminent
Obama and his corrupt democrats have gotta go.
PIMPS with INK are DESTOYING this country!!!
They love their ‘word’ games.
