Skip to comments.What Happened In Benghazi( Shot across the Bow from State)
Posted on 10/14/2012 6:21:27 AM PDT by RummyChick
The State Department has released a transcript of a briefing that two high-ranking department officials gave to a number of reporters via conference call on October 9 (Tuesday). I am not certain about this, but I believe the transcript was only made public today. You should read it in its entirety; it is the most detailed description I have seen of the events in Benghazi on September 11.
While this is by no means clear, it appears that the State Department may have released the transcript as part of the escalating conflict between Barack Obama and Joe Biden and the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. In their desperation to avoid responsibility for the Benghazi debacle, Obama and Biden have pointed fingers in two directions: at the intelligence community for reporting incorrectly that the incident was a protest over a YouTube video clip, and at the State Department for not providing adequate security for the Ambassador.

“It was obvious to the reporters on the call that this narrative blows Obamas evasions sky high:
First question is from the line of Anne Gearan with the Washington Post. Please go ahead.
QUESTION: Hi. You said a moment ago that there was nothing unusual outside, on the street, or outside the gates of the main compound. When did the agents inside what excuse me, what did the agents inside think was happening when the first group of men gathered there and they first heard those explosions? Did they think it was a protest, or did they think it was something else?”
The annex in Benghazi is the Alamo
Romney will lead us to San Jacinto
“God knows what caused those MANPADs to be released to terrorists, but We, the People responsible for America have a right to know without delay. We can more easily imagine the Clintons worries, over them being used on a passing airliner, of perhaps Israel or a NATO nation. Imagine what might be done with a stockpile of MANPADs in Israel, when that skinny, little, free nation needs to take action in Iran. Why, perhaps such incidents would even cause Congress to stop the billions of dollars being sent for years, to Islamist, jihadi nations, as foreign aid! Perhaps they will. One would hope the calamities sustained already will.
Bill and Hillary Clinton had already, in their co-dependent co-presidency, been engaged in a great deal of cover-up, of just such a problem; witness the eyewitness testimonies of the downing of TWA Flight 800 by a ground-to-air missile.
And now they are all entangled, Obamunist and Clintonista alike, facing the seeming inevitably of going down together, one way or any other. And really, it all goes back to Arab Spring, spoken highly of, by Romneyons such as Tim Pawlenty and Norm Coleman immediately after 9-11-12, as well as co-orchestrated by the Democrats and their neo-Marxist and Muslim Brotherhood collaborators (see The Engineers of Leaderless Arab Spring & Occupy Wall Street plus numerous articles during Arab Spring).
And now, the U.S. Senate is interested, as well as the House and there are about three weeks till the election. Having served as Democratic Party council during the Watergate hearings, and dealing with the Rose Law Firm investigation and her husbands impeachment, Hillary Clinton is familiar with such matters.”
Obama (and Biden) lied, Chris Stevens and others died...
The call was on 10/9. Greta had the transcript posted on 10/10. She was “inadvertently” not included in the conference call
What happened was that the obama administration refused to show force because he loves the jihadis more than his own country. This allowed the jihadis to murder Americans, but obama doesn’t care because he loves the middle-eastern death cult much more than the land of democracy.
Caught in a lie, he instructed his staff to blame the deaths on a video.
Aided in his lie by his compliant media, he faces much less outrage than a Bush would.
If Bush had done it, Bush would be accused of letting the ambassador be murdered because the ambassador was gay.
What happened in Benghazi will not stay in Benghazi.
I wish I had a picture of their “How can I blame Bush or Palin for this” faces.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. Clintons and Obamas 'going down together' .... couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch.
I read this transcript earlier via another thread. It was an interesting account, though it never made clear what happened to Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
It also never addressed the photos & video of Amb Stevens being carried.
I missed the part of the 17 days visa excuse.
Former CIA on Fox
I think this is 17 days after the attack
But CNN was there to find Stevens journal
They are all lying. I am convinced that Obozo intended to use the movie controversy to suppress 1st Amendment free speech in the US. He was just looking for the opportunity to do that and it came. (creeping Sharia) And I am also convinced that Der Hilderbeast is lying to hide her complicity with the very elements who killed the Ambassador. Of course Dems Lie. They are all Commies now, just look at who runs the Dem Party. Lies are the DNA of Commies, the only way they can gain and hold power is lies and repression. They still intend to do that. FUBO!
No one has explained how the Ambassador’s body arrived at the hospital. For that reason, Der Hilderbeast’s (State Dept) story does not fit the facts either. They are all lying.
” it appears that the State Department may have released the transcript as part of the escalating conflict between Barack Obama and Joe Biden and the Secretary of State”
So one agent had been manning the phone and “he had called Washington” - from the transcript excerpt below.
“As those guys attempt to secure a perimeter around Building C, they also move to the TOC, where one agent has been manning the phone. I neglected to mention from the top that that agent from the top of this incident, or the very beginning of this incident, has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the Embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington. He had them all going to ask for help. And he remained in the TOC.”
