STATE DEPT. SCRUBS 'ALL CLEAR' MEMO ISSUED FIVE DAYS BEFORE LIBYA ATTACK
Breitbart ^ | 28 Sep 2012 | AWR HAWKINS

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."

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

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).

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.

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?

This is NOT really breaking news.

It was posted a days ago.

But it was already known two weeks ago.

Boehner and his RINOs support this treason.
They have enabled it, and encouraged it, continuously.

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!

OSAC has no credible information

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.

This needs to stay in Breaking News for widest dissemination as this part of the cover-up still has not broken through.

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.

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.

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

Somehow, tar and feathers isn't going to be an adequate solution.

There are four or more American lives to avenge.

Our intel folks and the people they serve are accountable.

"The press would go down in flames protecting Barry."

We should stop this business of 'the press.' Name names every time. Name them and link their name with dishonesty, stupidity, and unprofessionalism.

Admin:

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.
