Vice President Biden doubled down on the bad intelligence excuse in last night's debate when the question of the deaths of American personnel in Libya was raised. Among other stories today, Senator Bob Corker and The Daily Beast's Eli Lake apparently seem to know at lot more about what happened in Benghazi that night than the President and Vice President.
Senator Corker will become the senior Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee next year. The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin reports: This week he had extensive meetings with the FBI and intelligence officials on the ground in Benghazi as well as officials from the Libyan government. He was emphatic: "What I know is our intelligence officials on the ground in real time and also in Washington within 24 hours knew what had happened." How much was known at the time of the attack? Eli Lake reports: In addition to the footage from the consulate cameras, the U.S. government is also poring over video taken from an overhead U.S. surveillance drone that arrived for the final hour of the night battle at the consulate compound and nearby annex. One doesn't have to be a world class analyst to make the distinction between the random acts of a mob and a coordinated attack. And if a drone was sent in when it became known the consulate was under attack, why wasn't it an armed drone that could have tried to stop the assault?
I expect more damaging information to come out in coming days.

“So are we to conclude that Petraeus is not a man of integrity?”
It takes the ability to deceive to be the head of the CIA.
All questions should point directly to the CIA as you try to figure out what really happened.
The interesting thing is that I think Chaffetz knows a lot of what went on- and he is devastated by it. You could see it in his face in that brief moment that the camera panned on him after Gowdy’s speech.
Apparently so. They all sure knew about that video before the demonstrations and bloodshed began.
3 hour 25 minute mark. Watch Gowdy to the end of his speech for the pan to Chaffetz
It might not be what it used to be (and a grand pity if that
is the case), but I’m not following the situation all that closely either.
It was being deliberately disseminated around the area by Islamist rabble rousers who wanted to create an excuse for rioting. That ought to have been a clue, together with the approaching date, that something was afoot.
Thanks for posting that. Really interesting info.!
I am not so sure it was not created for that very purpose. Obama sure was apologizing real fast for its existence.
The author was reportedly a Christian Arab. Such persons are usually not interested in stirring up Islamic riots.
This talks about the assault being carried out with AMERICA WEAPONS, impossible to verify by says a witness interviewed saw them. Wow this is getting bazaar. Ambassador killed with weapons we supplied?
Only the JonStewart media told US this guy was a Coptic Christian. Our government protectors have been completely silent on who he really is.
Oh no. They stepped in it big time. This is going to be highly entertaining. Popcorn?
My theory: 30,000 Stinger missiles swapped for release of sheik and other concessions. Worked out with previous occupant released from Gitmo. Ambassador was to be kidnapped and ransomed for sheik without public knowledge of the SAMs. Raid failed, some reports ambassador died of smoke inhalation, so body was photographed as if it was carried off by a spontaneous crowd. Hide the evidence and blame the film which was funneled into Egypt by the CIA/State department as a deflection for unrest in the region. Hence the repeated statements by HRC and others without provocation that the US Government had nothing to do with the video. It's just my tin foil hat theory....
Wow I’m totally shocked by this! And that’s not sarc! I knew Obama doesn’t particularly try to hide what side he’s on anymore, this is beyond “in your face, America!”
Ad I haven’t even looked at the links yet. Thank you very much for the info! It’s too bad the info is so detrimental to our country.
I can only guess, which would be that he knows that whatever is coming will be so bad for us mere citizens that whichever of them takes the blame won’t matter anymore.
The very first claim that it was the video was from a staffer at the US embassy in Egypt- not just any staffer but one of those personnel whose duties were deemed important enough to remain at the embassy when all nonessential staff had been sent home in advance of the protests.
My take on the matter is that there are two separate and distinct actions that went on during 9/11. First was the demonstrations in Cairo and the rest of the Arab world presumable caused by the video. The video, my opinion, was created by the progressives to stir up the mideast and support the implementation of the UN proposal ban anyone slandering their butt-wipe prophet. It was funded by Soros or others from the progressives. The embassies were alerted BEFORE the video was publicized by the Cairo newspaper which was part of the game. The Libyan operation was a separate action regarding recovery of weapons that we furnished the rebels. The video may have been a cover operation to make noise while they tried to buy back or some how recover the weapons. The two former Seals were not guards for the ambassador but were part of a team trying to find and recover the weapons who just happened upon the attack. If we see jetliners shot down with surface to air missiles, we’ll know what was really going on. Also note, that next to Saudia Arabia, Libya is the biggest provider of Jihadists to the warring countries.
Great dot connecting crosslink!
Maybe he’s been drinking at the same bar as John Roberts.
