Busted! State Department Scrubs Damning Memo From Website Following Deadly 9-11 Consulate Attacks
GateWay Pundit ^ | 091512 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 09/15/2012 6:53:03 PM PDT by Fred

On Wednesday September 12, 2012 blogger Speak With Authority discovered that five days before 9-11, the US State Department sent out a memo announcing no credible security threats against the United States on the anniversary of 9-11.

The Overseas Security Advisory Council, who posted the memo, is part of the Bureau of Diplomatic Security under the U.S. Department of State.

The OSAC memo said:

Terrorism and Important Dates Global 9/6/2012

OSAC currently has no credible information to suggest that al-Qa’ida or any other terrorist group is plotting any kind of attack overseas to coincide with the upcoming anniversary of September 11. However, constituents often have concerns around important dates, holidays, and major events, Often times, these concerns are the result of increased media attention to the issue, rather than credible evidence of a terrorist plot.

But now it’s gone.

It is difficult to believe that even the Obama Administration could be this incompetent. It is looking more and more like treason.

Un flipping believable. BLOGGERS knew more about the coming attacks then the hundred billion US Intelligence machine!

How much more incompetent can the Obama regime prove itself to be and still get 48% in the polls?

Jihadis Threaten to Burn U.S. Embassy in Cairo

Jihadi groups in Egypt, including Islamic Jihad, the Sunni Group, and Al Gamaa Al Islamiyya have issued a statement threatening to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to the ground.

According to El Fagr, they are calling for the immediate release of the Islamic jihadis who are imprisonment and in detention centers in the U.S. including Guantanamo Bay: “The group, which consists of many members from al-Qaeda, called [especially] for the quick release of the jihadi [mujahid] sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman [the “Blind Sheikh”], whom they described as a scholar and jihadi who sacrificed his life for the Egyptian Umma, who was ignored by the Mubarak regime, and [President] Morsi is refusing to intervene on his behalf and release him, despite promising that he would. The Islamic Group has threatened to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo with those in it, and taking hostage those who remain [alive], unless the Blind Sheikh is immediately released.”

Yup, we sure do have pre-911 intelligence alright. By the end of the 80's Reagan had made sure our intelligence along with our defense was top notch. But by the end of the 90's, Clinton had a wall built between the CIA and the FBI, our intelligence was in shambles, and thus we were caught completely unawares on 9/11/2001. Now 10 years later, we are again very vulnerable.

Obama presents a myriad of dangers to our beloved country.

These people are idiots. A simple look about these countries of Islamic dominance should be sufficient to err on the side of caution, and cause our government to provide adequate coverage to our U.S. personnel, and our taxpayer investments in those countries.

Leftists have no commonsense.

It would seem to me like we could cut the CIA and State Department intelligence from the next budget and not even miss them.

Yeah, “Path to 9-11” redux.

Apparently they think it’s better to show that THERE’S NO WATCH AT ALL (nothing said about 911 threats) than showing that somebody’s watching but myopic. Obama’s a danger to us domestically and internationally.

And further into the piece there’s a link to THIS:

Chaos at the State Dept?

I spoke with a well-placed journalist last night whose sources describe the situation at the State Department in one word: “Chaos.” The working assumption is that several American embassies may have been penetrated, or are vulnerable to attack, because so many of them rely on local residents for staff needs at the embassy, and as such may be in a position to breach security if they have been recruited by Al Qaida. Moreover, the full story of the attack on the Benghazi consulate is much worse than we have been told (except by the Independent newspaper report John and I linked to here on Thursday).

The consulate in Benghazi was an interim facility, with only a standard door lock for security, and worse, Ambassador Stevens was traveling with only a light security detail, rather than in the heavily armed convoys our diplomats in the region usually employ. The attack on the Benghazi was no mere target of opportunity spurred by reaction to the “Innocence of Muslims” film; the film is just a pretext. The killing of Amb. Stevens was a premeditated hit, planned and carried out as retaliation for the recent drone strike that killed the number two Al Qaida operative in Afghanistan recently. The vulnerability of Stevens at the Benghazi compound was scouted out carefully. All the other embassy protest activity is just covering theater.

As Drudge would say, developing. . .

It's possible they post this every year and remove it like clockwork.

It was certainly 'up' this month because a Google search turns up the listing.

Staggering chicanery and subversion of our interests and govt employees and all that’s sacred and sane ! The blood on their hands can never be erased. I’m wondering if Hillary could now be impeachable. This “October surprise” will have mighty and calamitious consequences. God help us, protect us.

Lord protect our brave troops .. be their hedge of protection. St. Michael, defend them in battle, foreign and domestic.

My first troubling question about the Benghazi ambush was wondering what the Ambassador and his IT guy were doing out there so late at night, IIRC 9:30-10:00pm local time.

The consulates usually keep regular business hours, with maybe a skeleton crew under some circumstances.

Have you encountered anything yet which ecplains this?

One has to wonder if he was lured there, with the ‘spontaneous mob and attackers on site. First reports indicated mortars and RPGs were used in the attack. Even if such reports came from Libyans, they’ve learned to identify weapons by sound during the battles with Qaddafi’s forces.

I’ve been saying for months, Obama wants the Middle East to ignite before the election. He will do whatever it takes.
