Security team pulled out of Libya in August (Obama/Clinton coverup over on Wed)
american thinker ^ | 10/07/2012 | rick moran

Posted on 10/07/2012 6:27:36 PM PDT by barryobi

he blundering boobs at the State Department recalled a 16-man security team in August just as the Libyan diplomats were asking for more security, not less. CBS: CBS News has learned that congressional investigators have issued a subpoena to a former top security official at the US mission in Libya. The official is Lt. Col. Andy Wood, a Utah National Guard Army Green Beret who headed up a Special Forces "Site Security Team" in Libya. The subpoena compels Lt. Col. Wood to appear at a House Oversight Committee hearing next week that will examine security decisions leading up to the Sept. 11 Muslim extremist terror assault on the U.S. compound at Benghazi. U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three of his colleagues were killed in the attack. Lt. Col. Wood has told CBS News and congressional investigators that his 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force called a Mobile Security Deployment team left Libya in August, just one month before the Benghazi assault. Wood says that's despite the fact that US officials in Libya wanted security increased, not decreased. Wood says he met daily with Stevens and that security was a constant challenge. There were 13 threats or attacks on western diplomats and officials in Libya in the six months leading up to the September 11 attack. A senior State Department official told CBS News that half of the 13 incidents before September 11 were fairly minor or routine in nature, and that the Benghazi attack was so lethal and overwhelming, that a diplomatic post would not be able to repel it.

The coverup is over on Wednesday. Isaa and Lt Col. Wood are about to drop the boom on Hillary and Obama. They will try to throw some underling like Charlene Lamb under the bus, but this criminal malfeasance points straight to Hillary and thus Barry

Predictably, the MSM will sweep it under the rug, but Romney won’t.

I’m not for exploiting tragedy, but this should be made into ads to exploit the incompetence of Obama.

Imagine if this happened under GWB? 24/7 MSM coverage running polls asking if GWB should resign or drop out of the race.

Instead, Obama will continue to be e-fellated by his whores in the media.

How in the world did they (the administration) think they were going to be able to cover this up? It boggles the mind that they thought they’d be able to do this to people who do security/intelligence for a living.

This topic better be the first words out of Gov. Romney’s lips in that third debate. It is pissing me off to no end, that this topic isn’t getting wider play.

We have six dead Americans in Libya and not one apology or look of remorse from Obama or Hillary. That is psychopathic. They’re not just thieves, they’re psychopaths. They lack even the most fundamental of human emotions. And the media covers for them saying, “We didn’t kill those people or steal that money! We just covered for those other Democrats that killed those people and stole that money.” Sick sick sick.

The biggest part of the coverup is to coverup Hillary’s failure as Sec. of State. They first offered up Rice to take the hit, but everyone asked why the Ambassador to the UN was making statements, completely wrong and not the responsibility of the UN ambassador. Although the coverup protects the Food Stamp President somewhat, the emphasis is on protecting Hillary for possible 2016.

But, but, but I read it is Ryan's fault. The Obama Admin said that security would have been cut under Ryan's budget. So it is Ryan's fault. /s

Their logic/blame is incredible and disgusting.

It just goes to show you that these people are so incompetent that they don't even realize they are incompetent.

MAYBE IF THE WEENIES IN CONGRESS HAD ACTED WHEN OBAMA ILLEGALLY WENT TO WAR IN LIBYA, THIS WOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED.

What’s that? If the Obama camp wants to act as if something won’t get done without money set aside for it, hows come that didn’t stop them from laying out $165M for the Illinois prison, which is completely unfunded?

Zero would give GITMO prisoners new digs and a place to meet with their relatives and MB bruthas, sooner than they would protect a threatened US Ambassador begging for more security! (That should play really well in Peoria!)

1. Tripoli marines no ammo

2. No marines for Bengazi

3. No blast-proofing for Bengazi

4. No bullet-proof glass for Bengazi

5. No DC-3 support

6. They’d been bombed there months before by their own former guards

7. Structure was normal leased biz space with standard hotel locks, only real provision was some windows featured bars

8. The two SEALs who did fight were not on his protective detail

9. No post attack effort was made to secure intel papers lying around

Also interesting that one of those killed communicated over the internet with friends earlier in the day (9-11) that he hoped they survived the day.

What did he know in advance?

“How in the world did they (the administration) think they were going to be able to cover this up? It boggles the mind that they thought they’d be able to do this to people who do security/intelligence for a living.”

I guess they thought they would be able to count on the old media to ignore this one just as it has ignored the last 30 scandals.

So far, they are right. Except for political freaks like us, noone knows about this.

One must deduce that Obama and Clinton reduced security in Libya so that Amb Stevens could be assasinated by al-Queda mercenaries armed with US heavy weapons, then blame it on a YouTube, so they could stage an attack on internal US First Amendments freedoms. Who would have thought they are so evil as to resort to murdering a diplomat?

You mean the next (second) debate which will cover both foreign policy and domestic issues. I hope Romney also brings up the total chaos in our southern border security and the state of the Mexican government which is being overrun by the drug cartels.

They figured they could, with the help of the media, keep it covered up until after the election. After the election, they don't care what comes out.

Instead, it seems to be coming to light just in time to hit the news cycle before the next Debates, the first of which will be Ryan Vs Biden and the will probably will come up, and the second Romney Vs Obama debate which just happens to have Foreign Policy as the topic.

This should make debate prep interesting for both sides.

Thank goodness for Fox, internet and alternative media. Twenty years ago Barky WOULD have been able to cover this up completely with the help of the media.
