Posted on 10/03/2012 2:17:35 PM PDT by bruinbirdman
FBI agents have still not been granted permission to visit the consulate building where the American ambassador to Libya was killed, three weeks after the attack by militants in the eastern city of Benghazi.
An FBI team was dispatched to Libya within days of the attack, in which three other Americans died. But they have been forced to remain in Tripoli as American and Libyan officials argue over the terms under which the two sides will co-operate in the investigation.
The consulate building itself and the accommodation annexe which also came under attack have been left largely unsecured.
"We are getting ready for the FBI team to go to Benghazi and meet with our team, start joint investigations", the deputy foreign minister, Mohammed Abdel Aziz, said on Tuesday.
He had just met Elizabeth Jones, a US assistant secretary of state, sent to Tripoli to negotiate the issue. "We are now in the context of [granting] written permission," he said.
Benghazi's chief prosecutor, Saleh Adam Mohammed, told the Daily Telegraph more than two weeks ago that he was expecting the FBI team to arrive within two days, and said the Libyan authorities fully intended to co-operate with their American counterparts. There has been as yet no explanation for the delay.

Obama to Libya Muslim Brotherhood, "Deny U.S. access to the crime scene. You know how it is. Until after the election. I'll make it up to ya."
Sad we have to get our news from Britain and Mexico.
Exactly. The Obama Administration says they cannot provide
information due to an ongoing FBI investigation. There IS NO
FBI investigation going and THERE WON’T BE.
This is just a stalling technique like Janet Reno used to do.
Thought Obama had the FBI in his back pocket.
Seems that the wimmen are in charge of all things Libya.
First we had Clinton, Susan Rice, and Samantha Powers overrule Robert Gates, Tom Donilon and John Brennan on going to Libya...the men were against it.
Since the debacle we've had Rice, Clinton, Victoria Nuland, and now this Elizabeth Jones person running PR.
The only male I remember also being involved was Philip Reines who could keep himself from angry expletives in arguing with a questioning reporter.
Why do we need to go there to “investigate”? There is nothing to investigate. This is a war and those men were killed in a war action.
No need to investigate. They need to kill. Then leave.
Man, her responses are SO weak.
Cuz there’s forensic evidence showing that the 400-member assault was performed using (or partly using) **US weapons** supplied to the Unicorn/Rainbow rebels.
This was Barry’s Blackhawk Down, except with TONS of lying thrown in to the mix.
This is impossible, because the Washington (Com)Post has feet on the ground in the consulate.
But Hussein is probably just a scared weenie.
FBI still not been granted permission to visit Benghazi consulate
Not to worry! The Muslim Brotherhood is handling the US jurisdiction on the investigation.
In Mogadishu Delta couldn’t call up fire-support from AH-64’s and AC-130’s because shipping those there would have “LOOKED BAD” —would have made us look like CONQUERERS.
Even though after Daddy Bush’s exit there was huuuuuuge mission creep they STILL wanted to keep, “a low profile”, which is the ZACT same thing, here.
THAT is why there were no US Marines in Bengazi and why Marines elsewhere had no ammo, as a matter of policy.
Liberals will put up with wars, sure, AS LONG AS NO ONE GETS HURT. Hey, doing everything you can to avoid unnecessary collateral damage is GREAT, but their tendency is to run the military like it’s a social service.
These two powerful bisexuals got that guy killed, plain and simple.
what a joke...
Remember that US ship bombing off of Aden, Yemen over a decade ago...? A muzzie zodiac packed with explosives attacked our ship, nearly sinking it.
Did you know that AFTER the huge explosion the captain STILL forbade the sailors from breaking out LIVE AMMO..?
I’m serious. Ya know why? TO AVOID A TRAGEGY. I’m serious there, too.
In fact some sailors DID run top-side with empty weapons at least to deter follow-up attackers, and in fact there WAS another zodiac that did veer off at the last instant —perhaps after they spotted the armed (?) men.
Had it instead have chosen to attack it’s almost certain the ship would have gone to the bottom.
Think on this bit:
The assault team knew where the secondary safe house was, over a kilometer away. Then, they used accurate, indirect mortar fire walked right on top of the Americans as they sought refuge in the safe house.
That’s an INCREDIBLY sophisticated attack. It probably means:
1) Inside information about the location of the safe house.
2) A spotter with radio contact to the mortar team.
3) Trained mortar teams who can accurately walk in the rounds.
That is a remarkably sophisticated, military style attack. This is not even Al Qaeda’s hallmark; random terror. It is the hallmark of a government sponsored or highly organized and experienced mujahedeen group.
Who trained these guys? Where did they come from? Where are they headquartered? Who funded them? Who gave them information? Where are they now? What weapons did they use? Did they use the weapons we gave them to overthrow Ghadaffi? Did we train them in these exact tactics for the purpose of overthrowing Ghadaffi, and this is blowback?
So many questions, so much stonewalling and so many lies.
“First we had Clinton, Susan Rice, and Samantha Powers overrule Robert Gates, Tom Donilon and John Brennan on going to Libya...the men were against it.”
This is classic obama lead from behind. Delegating to State when real decisions need to be made.
A real POTUS would have told the Libyans to pound sand while he deployed that Marine quick reaction force to secure the mission and recover any classified material.
This entire episode has been a tragic farce and dark days in American history.
Maybe there's a faction in that country that doesn't appreciate the result...
Don’t need the FBI. The Washington Post is there: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2939715/posts
We need permission to go to American soil?
0bama used this same tactic when Fast & Furious was first revealed.. There’s probably STILL “an FBI investigation” on F&F too! What a great way to put off being accountable for a cover up!
OR.....we could send in CNN to investigate, they had no problem getting in...
then carpet bomb the place!
We need to REPEAL AND REPLACE THIS ENTIRE LIMP-WRISTED REGIME!!! Romney’s not exactly John Wayne but at least he’s got a WOMAN for a wife who would make a GREAT First Lady!
“There has been as yet no explanation for the delay.”
I’ll give the explanation: The pampered, chicken-shit FBI traitors are not about to risk their pansy-asses if there’s even a hint of hostile forces nearby. These left-wing seditionists are more interested in collecting a fat-ass pension than solving crimes.
Thirty-five years ago, in the Reagan administration, the FBI would have been on the ground in Benghazi a day after the ambassador was killed.
This is NOT your father’s FBI.
October Surprise: Obama Plans Major Airstrike on Libyan Targets
Breitbart ^ | 10/3/12 | Ben Shapiro
Posted on Thursday, 4 October 2012 9:25:46 AM by Evil Slayer
somewhat related - maybe one of the targets will be the embassy and then the FBI will be able to investigate a hole in the ground?
On CNBC’s Larry Kudlow show, he spoke with a correspondent that just had reporters visit the site to find 2 security guards. They walked around the site and found policy manuals, evacuation plans and the Ambassador’s calendar.
Obama fiddled while Benghazi burned!
Or human targets that know too much.
I see we are on the same track, I’ve been wondering what ‘granny’ Sarah Onyango might have told Gaddafi, perhaps he knew too much:
Never saw any photographs of that visit, did anyone? How good would it look, the old lady smooching up to Muamar?
Didn’t the Clinton State Dept block the FBI in the USS Cole investigation ? I remember some kind of dustup between state and the FBI’s O’Niell.
I get it, you get it, but why is it that America does not get it? Your before and after photos of Tripoli Street indicate the wages of liberal fascism. Its staring people RIGHT in the face!!!
Everything started to go downhill for Muammar when he insulted the arabs, but the video of that event has disappeared. However, I will never forget the look of loathing on the face of the Saudi 'king' - I think Gaddafi and his country were destroyed in revenge, and we know who the enablers were, don't we?
found the video:
Very interesting, FN - I had forgotten about that visit. I just clicked your link and read about how DBA 0bama was nervous about that visit. Could that have something to do with 0b’s taking out of Gaddhafi. Maybe Stevens knew something about Grandma Sarah’s visit and passing of info as well.
That link makes me a little concerned about Grandma Sarah’s future freedom.
I think Gaddafi and his country were destroyed in revenge, and we know who the enablers were, don’t we? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Agreed. Obama was just paying for the various favors the House of Saud sent his way over the years, including Obama’s admission and payment of his tuition to Harvard Law School.
Gadaffi flew in the face of the traditional Arabs, making a decision to bring Libya into the modern era. That and 25 cents to Obama got him killed and now the entirety of North Africa is now a US security risk.
What surprises me is that so few Americans have figured it out, believing wrongly that Gadaffi was a horrible tyrant. Gadaffi was a benevolent dictator, and his tyranny was restricted to OFFING every mujahadeen he could.Thats why Bengazi is now in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda.Gadaffi is no longer present to keep them out and the inheritors of the so called Obama Libya democracy cannot keep them out.
Cognito ergo sum, we were better off with Gadaffi, and so were the people of Libya. Why does this analysis have to be rocket science for those who follow Obama? Any kid who has played the board game “Risk” could figure it out.
The other lesson that should be learned is to never put a queer in charge of a foreign post. Ambassador Evans gave weapons to a few of his Muslim boyfriends to use against Gadaffi, and they betrayed Evans,using those same weapons to destroy the US compound in Bengazzi.At the same time Evans did not upgrade his security, because it would make his little romantic trysts with Muslim Brotherhood agents too difficult to prosecute.This is the real reason IMHO why the FBI are not in Bengazzi, they would discover how Evans and his network of $hit packers from the State Department had conducted themselves, resulting in the destruction of our consulate in Bengazzi, and also resulting in the deaths of Americans.The general US public must not learn of these things before the election.So the FBI are not authorized to go in.Thats how liberal fascism works.
This angle needs thorough exploration. Yes, maybe Gadaffi did indeed know too much and was about to spill the beans.
I had seen this video before Obama invaded. The Arabs all balked at Gadaffi’s truth.Before this “Arab Spring” is over , the Arabs will wish they had listened to Gadaffi.
It seems that Gadaffi did not have an Arab Spring, he had a bunch of Mujahadeen wanting him dead and needed Obama’s help to pull it off, generally the people of Libya were economically well off, and the Southern Libyan desert was banded with green and crops.
Now there is only Libyan economic ruin, Sharia tyranny,and the water no longer runs in Jabel Hasano.
What possible reason could there be to bomb that water project? Zer0 reason in the context of helping "freedom" fighters. It was a pretext to create massive strife in Libya. Just another manifestation of the Cloward & Piven strategy of putting people in such dire straits that they will accept whatever devil's bargain is laid before them for a crust of bread or a sip of water.
As I have said before his goal is to establish a Muslim Caliphate run by the Muslim Brotherhood but his result will be WWIII.
I don't believe everything Gaddafi said there was accurate. He had his biases. But the smackdown he laid on those other Arab leaders was a bull's eye. They sat and smirked and shook their heads at him but he was right. He turned out to be the next one hanged thanks to that demon 0bama.
He had several strikes against him that I could see...he refused to run his country according to sharia and after the visit by granny and her son Said, he probably knew who zero is.
Because she knows.
And telling the arabs they were their own worst enemy...they were never going to let him get away with that.
In sum, I never saw a man so thoroughly rehabilitated for Western consumption and so suddenly BETRAYED as he was.
What is NATO? A stick for zero to use for his own purposes and keep his Saudi masters happy? (Both are the same thing.)
A pox on Cameron and Sarkozy for allowing it. Shades of SERBIA. What is this ‘arab spring’ but a method of preventing a government from DEFENDING ITSELF?
I think you got that right...and he used NATO to do it with, which makes them all complicit. It doesn't surprise me to see that neither Russia nor China are willing to allow him to do it again to Syria.
They were both against the strikes on Libya. China had considerable investments there. I don’t know what became of those. Undoubtedly neither one is thrilled with the idea of a Muslim Caliphate run by fundamentalists.
What is NATO? A stick for zero to use for his own purposes and keep his Saudi masters happy? (Both are the same thing.)
The nationalist socialist leftists in Charge of Europe’s governments bought the Obama line lock stock and barrel, but they too were somewhat hoodwinked, nobody will trust NATO again, including the Russians. The Arab League stood by and watched an international travesty unfold in Libya, while weakly protesting that NATO was overstepping, like street walking hookers trying to appear as virgins.
Obama should be branded as a WAR criminal for what he did to destabilize Libya and the entirety of North Africa( and Obama did the same in Northern Mexico using “Fast and Furious” see a pattern?). The result is as Obama intended. The gateways to greater Africa for the infiltration of more weapons and mujahadeen into peaceful African nations, for the purpose of jihadian conquest has been accomplished.What happened in the Sudan is about to migrate into the deep heart of Africa. Its already happening in Nigeria.
Yes, Fred, NATO was abused and misused, but the Euroweenie leftists made it happen, including Cameron. Also the British Royals are in bed with the Saudis in terms of investment, so you heard no protest there. But I do bet that Queen Elizabeth was sick to her stomach, at least.
Tripoli is a bombed out husk and Libya has re-entered the medieval era from which it had so recently emerged.Obama is a proven war mongering ,destabilizing factor in international politics. If he is re-elected, he likely will not survive what the Russians, Chinese and Israelis have in store for him, for they want stability at any cost.
0bama is a monster. He destroyed Libya in order to silence Gaddafi and to give Libya over to the MB.>>>>>>>>>>>>
Agreed. Also the gateway for thee transport of weapons and jihad into the heart of Africa is now wide open. Watch what is happening in Nigeria.
Yes, I sure do. 0bama's an open borders guy. But, as you point to, not your typical leftist open borders guy. He's opening them up for the Caliphate.
When Malcolm X converted to sunni islam in April, 1964, he obviously gained access to unlimited funds with which to establish mosques in the US. His Pan-Africanism ideal gained from the Marxist Nasser found a new, far more wealthy contributor, the Saudi Prince Feisal...Malcolm, after spending several months at the al-Hazhar university (mosque) in Cairo, became a 'true muslim' salafist; he gave his last speech in the Middle East at the al-Hazhar in Cairo before he was assassinated.
Zero gave HIS first speech overseas at the al-Hazhar, but no one noticed the significance, when he stood at the podium and praised islam. What should have been a warning, amongst many others, was ignored.
It's salafist islam, that was the force behind Malcolm's intent to convert the US blacks to islam, and resurrect the Pan-Africanism under islam that you now see happening in front of your eyes. More than 50% of the african continent is already islamic. Zero is doing nothing more than carrying on the dreams from his father.
This ALL should be developed into an article and published.
What a bullshit premise. We turned Iraq, plowed Afghanistan, and don’t have access to our dirt in Libya?
Must suck for the agencies to have to answer to the anti-Constitutional Marxists.
Path to 9-11-12.
