Skip to comments.CIA saw possible terror ties day after Libya hit: AP
Posted on 10/19/2012 3:34:38 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
The CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington within 24 hours of last month's deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate that there was evidence it was carried out by militants, not a spontaneous mob upset about an American-made video ridiculing Islam's Prophet Muhammad, U.S. officials have told The Associated Press.
It is unclear who, if anyone, saw the cable outside the CIA at that point and how high up in the agency the information went.

I knew it wasn’t visiting Mormon Missionaries right off the bat!
I think some of the agencies are getting tired of being hung out to dry and blamed by Bambi for his own incompetence.
It’s never wise to call-out the spooks and throw them under the bus. They have many ways of getting payback.
Oh, it's pretty clear, but keep on stalling MSM until the election. It will do you no good. Mitt will be elected anyway, and the American People will remember how you buried and obfuscated the obamanation's crimes and incompetence.
The truth will come out, and you will be pegged as traitors to the American People. Worthless liberal hacks, the lot of you. Credibility gone. Nobody listens to the dinosaur propaganda machine anymore.
“Then why did Obama, Hillary, Biden, Rice and Candy Crowley all claim it was from the video? (rhetorical)”
We’re now supposed to believe none of them did.
EVERYONE KNEW in real time that this was a terrorist
attack, and KNEW BEFORE the fact.
The problem is that it was anticipated and planned by
some in the US working with al Qaeda.
But who? Who?
I would not want to be Obama if he continues to blame others.
Obama came into office threatening the intelligence community with legal action over rendition and other Bush-era programs, and will leave office blaming the intelligence community for his “lead from behind” failure. Pathetic legacy.
A Amish barn raising ?
Zer0 said it, Hillary said it, Rice said it, CBS, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, NYT, all said it.
It MUST be true.
Until the administration comes clean, this remains the only explanation that explains things. We need to get this out.
I cant insert hyperlinks on my ipad.
Look more to not only who but why. I have seen some speculation, even here, that this was supposed to setup a prisoner swap deal of the Ambassador for the Blind Sheik. That is why nobody did anything because it was not supposed to end up as it did. The only problem was some CIA, DoS and ex-seal agents were not going quietly.
Team Obama blames the Intel Community.
[Intel drips could become a tsunami by Monday night’s debate. The Intel Community has no intention of taking the fall for Obama.]
It is absolutely inconceivable to think that the White House was NOT notified immediately about a terrorist attack, with 4 Americans killed, on the anniversary of 9/11. Romney needs to really hammer this point during Monday's debate, and say to him: "Mr. Obama, stop playing the American people for fools!"
Petraeus already did when he reportedly went before a closed session of congress and said it was all about a video. If that's true he's in a precarious position as revelations come out that at that time the CIA knew differently.
It is unclear who, if anyone, saw the cable outside the CIA at that point and how high up in the agency the information went
I call BULLS#T on this.
COS assessment from this station (Tripoli?) in this crisis situation would have been fired at highest precedence to the White House Sit Room, and directly to the President’s nat’l security advisors- coordinated with other agencies such as NSA for all source verification, and decision made by the WH team to include in the PDB with supporting or dissenting agency comments
What say you John Brennan, James Clapper and Tom Donilon?
Petraeus, you going to allow this group of losers to throw the CIA under the bus?
but good men and women who are devoted to secrecy to protect national security have a hard time breaking that code, even if it is to expose a lying pos small-p president
for example, you want to tell me the CIA doesn’t know obamas true identity, his true IQ, and his youthful activities?
Well I heard.....
....it’s just a rumor but I’ll share.
The Obama administration did a study (and they do look into things so well) on 9-11-01 and discovered that the GPS of two airplanes inadvertantly (they say it was a sun spot) began showing videos of the Prophet Mohammad and it caused the Muslim passengers on that plane to spontaneously charge the cockpits, wrest the plane from the pilots, and crashed them into the WTC.
The Pentagon, as I am to understand, was showing some kind of war practice film and some kind of “feed” thing went to a cockpit of an airplane. The feed had cursing against the Prophet Mohammad, causing a Muslim on the plane to bring it down to crash the pentagon to stop the torment.
As for Penna.....well since they’re now leading with Romney, the hell with Pennsylvania.
It’s their story and they’re sticking to it.
Not a smart move on his part if he did that.
There's only one conclusion here. Valerie Jarrett and Zero told the CIA and State in no uncertain terms that reports of an al Qaida terror attack were politically unacceptable. And Hillary and David Petraeus complied.
