Susan Rice, our disgraceful United Nations Ambassador just went on Meet The Press and told two very big lies, and issued one statement that when examined does not mean what most people think.
The first and most egregious lie she told was that that what happened in Benghazi started as a protest to the video and escalated to an attack on the consulate.
The second lie she told was that there was 'a significant' and robust security force protecting the consulate. She said two US citizen guarding the consulate were killed.
The third thing she said that is a total deception is that we had no intelligence that an attack on the consulate was planned.
On the first lie, that the attack started as a protest, and that radical elements took advantage of the protest to launch an attack is TOTALLY false.
Sean Smith, was in the same building as the Ambassador when the attack started. He was online playing EVE and chatting with another game player. He never said anything about a protest outside the consulate. HERE ARE HIS WORDS FROM THAT NIGHT. "[vile_rat 9/11/12 12:54 PM]: assuming we don't die tonight. We saw one of our 'police' that guard the compound taking pictures." Smith was also known for his "interesting" and "morbid" sense of humor, something that is not unusual for those that have been deployed in war zones. No one knew at the time how prophetic his comment would be. Nearly two hours later, Smith typed: [vile_rat 9/11/12 2:40 PM]: F**K [vile_rat 9/11/12 2:40 PM]: gunfire He was disconnected from Jabber and never returned.

Not only did Smith not mention a protest, but one of the 'guards' was interviewed in a hospital after the attack. Here is what he says about that night (note the hour of attack is off by one hour, I am not sure why, but could have to do with time stamp of Smith's computer) The guard, interviewed Thursday in the hospital where he is being treated for five shrapnel wounds in one leg and two bullet wounds in the other, said that the consulate area was quiet there wasnt a single ant outside, he said until about 9:35 p.m., when as many as 125 armed men descended on the compound from all directions.
The men lobbed grenades into the compound, wounding the guard and knocking him to the ground, then stormed through the facilitys main gate, shouting God is great and moving to one of the many villas that make up the consulate compound. He said there had been no warning that an attack was imminent.
Wouldnt you expect if there were protesters outside that the Americans would leave? the guard said.

That is TWO sources who show there was never a protest besfor the attack, how about a third? It so happens a Doctor from Boston was in Benghazi and ON THE PHONE with the Ambassador's attache when the attack began. Here is what he says about that night.
Just hours before Burke was scheduled to meet with John Christopher Stevens, the US ambassador to Libya, the US consulate was attacked. Stevens and three other Americans were killed, including Glen Doherty, a Winchester native and former Navy SEAL working for a private security company.
Burkes colleagues had spoken with Stevens just 45 minutes before the attack, and Burke was on the phone with an embassy attaché when the shelling began.
He yelled, Oh my God, Oh [expletive], and then he hung up, said Burke, who was in a hotel about a mile from the consulate when the attack began. Then we heard these deep blasts. We didnt know what was going on. Nobody knew if the whole city was being attacked.
On the second lie, that there was a significant and robust security force guarding the consulate that night, this is what the guard says about how many 'local' security were on duty....The attack itself, the guard said, was immediate and bold, initiated by a group of men who approached the compound and lobbed grenades over the wall. Just behind them were scores of men, shooting wildly and yelling God is great.
The guard, who said hed been hired seven months ago by a British company to protect the compound, said the first explosion knocked him to the ground, and he was unable to fire his weapon. Four other contracted guards and three members of Libyas 17th of February Brigade, a group formed during the first days of the anti-Gadhafi uprising and now considered part of Libyas military, were protecting the outside perimeter of the compound.
EIGHT local guards for the perimeter of the consulate, does that sound significant to you???
Well maybe, we had a ton of private US contractors (you know, Blackwater types) INSIDE the compound to protect the Ambassador? the fact is we don't know how many US security were inside the compound, but we do know there were only 38 Americans there that night, including the Ambassador, his attache, Sean Smith. That would leave a maximum of 35 other Americans who could have been security personnel. It is highly doubtful that even half of those were security.
In fact, when the attack started, the employees at the consulate called the embassy in Tripoli for help. That should tell you all you need to know about how 'significant' the protection force at the consulate was. More telling is how the embassy in Tripoli responded to the request for help.
An eight-strong American rescue team was sent from Tripoli and taken by troops under Captain Fathi al- Obeidi, of the February 17 Brigade, to the secret safe house to extract around 40 US staff.
HOW THE HELL 'significant' could our security assets in Libya be if all we could muster to save our consulate staff was EIGHT PEOPLE!!
Maybe the reason we did not have enough security was because of this........The US consulate in Benghazi, where the US ambassador to Libya died in an attack on Tuesday, was not given the standard security contract offered to many American diplomatic missions in the Middle East, private military contractors have told the BBC.
The consulate's walls were breached in just 15 minutes, guards were outgunned and overwhelmed and four US personnel were killed, including the Ambassador, J Christopher Stevens.
US embassies and consulates in areas of the world where they are deemed liable to attack are usually offered a formal security contract called a Worldwide Protective Services Agreement, known in the industry as a 'Wips'.
The contract, or so-called tasking order, is between the US state department and any one of several major private military contractors such as DynCorp International and Aegis Defence Services.

This was a well-crafted military operation: the attackers would have carried out at least two weeks of surveillance"
Noman Benotman Former Libyan jihadist Under this agreement, extensive security precautions are put in place, including low-profile armoured vehicles, run-flat tyres, sufficient weapons, ammunition and trained personnel, as well as a tried and tested command and control system.
But sources have told the BBC that on the advice of a US diplomatic regional security officer, the mission in Benghazi was not given the full contract despite lobbying by private contractors.
Instead, the US consulate was guarded externally by a force of local Libyan militia, many of whom reportedly put down their weapons and fled once the mission came under concerted attack.
The final straw was when Ambassador Rice kept repeating the attack was a result of the video and that we had no prior warning. I am sick of the weasel words 'actionable intelligence identifying a threat to the consulate in Benghazi'. What Rice is saying is we did not get a call from somebody saying the consulate in Benghazi will be attacked at 9:30 on 9/11. She is not saying we were not warned by the Libyans like this ................According to a report published at CNN on Saturday, U.S. diplomats were warned about deteriorating security three days before the consulate in Benghazi was attacked.
"Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security," CNN said.
"The situation is frightening, it scares us," Mabrouk recalled telling U.S. officials. Arwa Damon added that he did not say how the officials responded, and worse yet, it was not the first time Mabrouk had warned diplomats about security and the impact on international business.
But the warnings were apparently dismissed.
Even if the Libyans had not given the US a warning THREE days before the attack, the fact that the consulate had ALREADY BEEN BOMBED ON JUNE 6, 2012, should have given us a clue!!
You can watch the YouTune video that AL QAEDA put out that shows the bombing here ...... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhhyGB-ttMU
The level of criminal incompetence and lies coming from the administration about Benghazi is appalling. From Rice, to Hillary, to Clinton, they all should be tossed from office and jailed for their callous indifference to the security of our consulate employees.
So there you have it, sourced, double sourced, and confirmed. I can't expect lapdog David Gregory to have a clue or the balls or the integrity to call Susan Rice on her lies, but I sure as hell do expect those who serve in Congress to be holding press conferences THIS week and exposing the criminal negligence of the Administration.
Nicely done. Hope this gets a lot of views.
I just heard via FOX this morning that the FBI have been called back for security reasons... this would be laughable if it weren’t so sick...
This is sick, just sick... it truly makes my heart ache.
Another Affirmative Action Useful Idiot !
Two areas I have not seen discussed or given much reporting:
1. The timeline. Stevens was killed of smoke inhalation, per some reports. Photos of ME men carrying him were released to the press/Internet. Per The Administration, those men were carrying him to the hospital.
How and where did the US retrieve the bodies — since Obama had a photo op with the coffins?
When did the rebels get hold of the body to mutilate/rape it with ‘objects’? Some reports indicated that the raping occurred both while Stevens was still alive and after he was dead.
2. Per some articles, the embassy building did not have ‘residence’ facilities. Implication: ambassador and staff ‘resided’ elsewhere.
It is understandable that the tech guy may have been there, because he was on the computer.
Why would the ambassador have been there that late, unless something was going on that required his attention?
These may have been answered and I missed them, but there have been so many different threads and stories and Administration positions.
This beyotch wasn’t there. She’s only repeating what the administration has told her to say. Anything to save their sorry asses. Bottom line...I didn’t know that Libyans walked around with RPG launchers just in case they decided to hold a demonstration some where. All of these attacks were planned ahead of time. Wasn’t the attack on the consulate at night? When was the last time demonstrators decided to protest a film in the dark? The nighttime was chosen specifically to catch the victims offguard, and to protect the identities of the perps.
It was all very spontaneous and innocent. This type of thing could happen anywhere and surely there was no negligence or lack of proper preparation by Hillary's underlings in the State Department. Just because a few local fraidy cats gave them warnings ahead of time is meaningless. Ambassador Rice's statements sound perfectly reasonable. And don't worry Obama and Hillary have already given Mitt Romney and those peace loving Muslim's who participated in the riots that got out of hand some stern words... so justice has already been done. They are free to continue campaigning now.
Gregory didn't ‘warn’ viewers when liberals were speaking that they supported Obama. The guy's bias is so obvious it's embarrassing - even by NBC standards. Maybe they should move him to the back room to doctor tapes... Or tell his DNC PR Firm handlers to write more extensive copy for him to read...
Of course she lied. The whole Obama Administration is lying.
Again, why would anyone with ties to FR want to waist even 1 minute of their life listening to NBC & their news.
bump—embassy attack info
And the manner, implausibility, and frequency of their lies shows the total contempt that they have for the American public, and their total confidence that the MSM will not expose them for what they are.
There are procedures for cleansing the government and bureaucracy, but how do we cleanse the media, it is beginning to seem to be more important?
Does Petraeus’s CIA have anything to do with this...Mueller’s FBI doing anything? Col. Hunt says....”The rules of engagement were ridiculous.” He also along with others lays the entire “misunderstanding” at Mrs. Clinton’s feet and those of her boss, Barry Hussein Obama...not wanting to ruffle the feathers of Islam...Barry Hussein Obama marches to that drum...and we worried about JFK’s Catholicism or Carter’s religion and Bush’s bornagain....Obama, Barry Hussein is a Muslim.
