Bombshell: Obama Administration Deleted State Dept. Memo
Gateway Pundit ^ | 9/27/2012

Posted on 09/27/2012 8:45:16 PM PDT by Southnsoul

Yesterday there were reports that the Obama Administration found out that Al-Qaeda was behind the Benghazi consulate attacks within 24 hours of the assault that killed four Americans.

So what was their first action? Did they secure the compound? – No, that took over a week to get FBI agents to the consulate Did they acknowledge it was an Al-Qaeda attack? No, Obama this week blamed the terror attack on a YouTube protest.

Here’s what they did – They scrubbed a damning State Department memo from the internet– 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.

Questions I have:

Who is the US did the Libyan government warn 3 days in advance?

If it was the Ambassador did he notify the appropriate people in the US that protection was needed? If so, who did he notify? And why wasn’t anything done about it?

Where was zero in the 3 days before 9/11?

"Bombshell: Obama Administration Deleted State Dept. Memo..."

..... Well ... considering most of the country doesn't even know and probably never will know there was a memo ... this will hardly qualify as a "Bombshell."

The way the media is covering the whole thing up, most of the country still thinks it was all a spontaneous protest.

The Independent has reported diplomatic sources who said that the threat of an attack against US interests in the region was known to the US administration 48 hours before it took place. The alert was issued by the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, but not made public.

Sorry, I’m a dummy!

I don’t read into this memo that the higherups had received this warning and didn’t act on “questionable intelligence”

GW Bush’s team also received “inactionable questionable intelligence” before 9/11/01!

I’m looking for the memo that told Zer0 and his “team of lackies” that the attack was terrorism, but we’d better report it as a video uprising, as we sure would not want to upset the voting public with terror news!

Well, to be honest since the danger was undeniable after the fact, it would seem prudent to remove a notice that said there was no threat.

On the other hand, to be truly informative they should have replaced it with a notice that their previous threat assesment was in error, that there have been incidents, and there is still need to be wary in the event of future strikes.

"...The stink from this amateur regime..."

My all-time favorite tidbit about Prezzle O'Bunghole was the press report from the 2008 campaign trail, where reporters commented that O'Bunghole's jet was practically uninhabitable because it smelled like ass...

LMAO!!!!

I have been convinced, since the 2008 campaign, that Obama has a room full of Internet wizards that scrub damaging information 24/7. There are so many juicy tidbits, involving Obama, Reid, Biden, Pelosi, etc. that you simply cannot find. They are buried hundreds of pages back. The only place you can find Democrats’ ‘random accidental statements of truth’ are on Conservative Blogs or the FoxNews website. Which, of course, lends ‘plausible deniability’ to Leftists who will never take responsibility for their true statements or actions. If we had an independent Media, none of these clowns would have EVER gotten near any elected office!

How does this guy Obama get away with this?

I figure it this way: Romney will win, some ignorant Obama appointee judge will rule the election null and void, and we'll have 4 more years of torture from this ingrate.

If an American ambassador is murdered in the Middle East, but no press covers it, does anyone hear his screams?

The incompetence that led to his murder, and the subsequent transparently laughable attempts to cover it up is one of the biggest scandals in the history of American foreign policy, and the worthless little beyotches in the collaborationist press are complicit as accessories after the fact in these murders.

"Spontaneous demonstrations in response to the trailer of a movie," except ... except ... there was no movie, they were not spontaneous, and, according to the those on the scene, there were no demonstrations at all. Every official word spoken on this matter from the beginning has been a lie.

And our "Free Press" continued to repeat those lies, as laughable, as ridiculous, and insulting as they were, FOR NINE DAYS.

I don't know if I watched that on live TV or not, but I sure saw that clip played a thousand times over the next several years.

I was just a kid, so of course I couldn't stand Nixon, but man, was that the end of an era. It led to Jimmy Carter's term, which saw the birth of the modern nutbag liberal movement. We're still paying for that mistake.

That’s amazing. During the ‘90s you couldn’t pry Greta’s lips off of the Clinton’s butts with the Jaws of Life. Now she is almost the only remnant of real press left. I’m surprised Fox News is still tolerating her investigative impulses.

The New Media, Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge, Michelle Malkin ( I know you guys lurk here on Free Republic ) Bill Cunningham, Greta, Sean Hanity, and Mitt Romney needs to make a impression to the American people that there is in fact a major cover up and scandal going on here with after what happened in Libya and Egypt American embassies 2 weeks ago with this current administration.

Hey! I'm no crook.
PS. I'm not sorry I tuned into the CSPAN Carnegie Endowment session on Libya. It did provide some insights to how I personally evaluate where Libya stands as to it's future potential of forming a functional government of sorts.

There was a man on one of the FNC programs that said that this administration has done this from the beginning with special accounts. He had been in a government position either this one or the last

Aria ~ “ Who is the US did the Libyan government warn 3 days in advance?
If it was the Ambassador did he notify the appropriate people in the US that protection was needed? If so, who did he notify? And why wasn’t anything done about it?
Where was zero in the 3 days before 9/11? “

I think that the key questions is : Did anyone in the State Dept. receive a sat-phone call from the ambassador asking for assistance, while under attack ?

It is called : “Dereliction of Duty” (by freakin AMATURES !!)
Zero went to sleep 90 minutes after being notified that the embasey was under attack ~ as he had more meaningful engagement ~ a re-election fund raiser in Los Vegas

We do have priorities , ya know !!
Bump , bump ,bump , bump in da road !

On Greta’s program Demo strategy lackie Joe Trippi was flipping
stories against the wall to see what might stick. He indicated
the anti-muslim youtube story promoted by Obama et al was
designed to throw off the perps off by making them think our
intel folks aren’t on their trail. Greta referred to it as a “street story”
which is a planned lie that cops use to see if the target perps
will lower their guard. I think it is BS but just the kind of excuse
the Obama gang might use to defray criticism.

It would take time to find the who and where but I clearly recall Freepers notice this almost immediately.

I did my own brief search to see if there was a detectable pattern of removing the alerts/warnings around 9/11 quickly but found nothing to suggest they hadn't removed prior ones. I did find a readily accessible archive of other 9/11 travel warnings for comparison.
