Posted on 09/29/2012 8:42:31 AM PDT by kingattax
Five days before the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Libya, the U.S. state department posted an Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) memo saying there was no credible threat of violence against the U.S. for the then-upcoming September 11 anniversary.
That memo has since been scrubbed from government websites.
The memo read in part: "The OSAC has no credible information to suggest that Al-Qaeda or any other terrorist group is plotting any kind of attack overseas to coincide with the upcoming anniversary of September 11."
Far from warning of impeding danger, the memo told U.S. personnel that increased media attention for the September 11 anniversary might make them feel something was wrong, but they were assured "there was [no] credible evidence of a terrorist plot."

The Cairo embassy was also scrubbing it’s twitter feed the night of 9/11
That’s what I said back when Air Force One buzzed Manhattan.
Then I said it again when GM was nationalized and ownership handed over the union.
Heck....I’ve said at least a couple dozens times since 2009
When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
The press was the thing that made Watergate what it was and in fact bigger than what it was.
That’s not going to happen in this case. The press would go down in flames protecting Barry. But they don’t need to worry, because the flames will never get near them, since they control the information and most people probably barely know about this story (which was in the headlines only briefly, with the other 9/11 attack on Camp Bastion not even making the headlines at all).
Could someone wake boehner from his weeping sleep and let him know?
Former President Nixon was a choir boy compared to the zer0 criminals, and the media crucified Nixon. The zer0 crowd is the devil incarnate, and the media puts crowns on their heads, showers them with blessings, and lies like snakes in the grass to bite anyone who dares to tell the truth about the zer0 gang. One could become suspicious of these types of actions. Am certain moochelle and the media will soon make the citizens eat lizards.
“Innocence of Muslims Film actually made by TERRORISTS”
This makes perfect sense, if it is not on the web, it didn’t happen. Also, the President should declare all documents relating to the attack Privileged to avoid any pesky over-site. The most transparent President in history can not be transparent if damaging documents are known to exist, now can he?
But why would the state deparmtent do that when this was a failure of the intelligence community har har har...
Boehner and his RINOs support this treason.
They have enabled it, and encouraged it, continuously.
That isn’t entirely true anymore and that is what scares THEM...
we need to BOMBARD JOHN BOEHNER’s OFFICE with calls for IMPEACHMENT proceedings. IF we do NOTHING but talk here on FR, we are as complacent as anyone else!
I have written him a note and will call every day next week!
I know the election is right on us, but Obama needs at the very LEAST, to be questioned THOROUGHLY!
Can’t find him...he must be driving to Smoking Joes for another carton of Salems.
Thanks. Preserved for all of history.
This statement says nothing less than the intelligence assets and access built up during the Bush II administration has been dismantled and left to rot through politically correct neglect during the past three and a half years of American Socialist rule. Simple common sense would tell anyone with a functioning synapse that Al Qaida would not allow the 11th anniversary of 9/11 to pass without trying to strike somewhere.
This is criminal negligence. Imagine the Roosevelt administration in 1943 sending a bulletin out to the Merchant Marine telling them the Atlantic shipping lanes were "all clear" of U-Boat activity.
Fox News did a nine minute long timeline report last night on the Benghazi attack and failed to include the scrubbed State Dept. memo.
It is sad that anyone, particularly mass media new outlets, could believe that an embassy could be attacked and the only people to die were an Ambassador, an Information Technology Officer and two former Navy Seals who were not part of the security detachment however were the only ones with live ammo.
Meanwhile, Boehner and the rest of the Rino wimps are sitting in a corner, sucking their thumbs and holding onto a blanket.
Can’t get more transparent than invisible.
I agree kristinn. It was first posted on Sept. 15 and should stay up. I posted it to my facebook page that very day. Everyone who has facebook should post this memo and the article so it gets spread far and wide.
I don’t think we’re going to make much headway against democrats until the media wall that supports and protects them gets neutralized.
I see right through the emperor’s new clothes.
King Jerk-a-Boo should realized his problems can multiply infinitely with just a few coded phonecalls and/or emails to Fort Benning and others here and abroad
B. Hussein Obama II plans on spiking and contesting military votes
- and then there is the Lone Funman out there - Hoo Boy!
There are four or more American lives to avenge.
Our intel folks and the people they serve are accountable.
We should stop this business of 'the press.' Name names every time. Name them and link their name with dishonesty, stupidity, and unprofessionalism.
Thanks for staying with the traditional definition of “Breaking News:” Breaking news refers to events that are currently developing, or “breaking.” Breaking news usually refers to events that are unexpected, such as a plane crash or building fire.
Sorry guys, if it happened 15 days ago as this story did, it’s no longer Breaking News. “Not covered by the Fracking Lame Stream Media and that pisses me off” news perhaps, but not Breaking News.
Find the jihad sympathizers behind the “all clear” investigation and get rid of them. They are there. The usual government excuse “mistakes were made” does not cut it given the jihadi sympathizers have now diverted attention in the “war on terror” from jihadis and onto American soldiers and vets.
