Documents show Stevens worried about Libya security threats, Al Qaeda before consulate attack
Fox News ^ | 10-19-2012 | James Rosen

Across 166 pages of internal State Department documents -- released Friday by a pair of Republican congressmen pressing the Obama administration for more answers on the Benghazi terrorist attack -- slain U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and the security officers assigned to protect him repeatedly sounded alarms to their superiors in Washington about the intensifying lawlessness and violence in Eastern Libya, where Stevens ultimately died.

On Sept. 11 -- the day Stevens and three other Americans were killed -- the ambassador signed a three-page cable, labeled "sensitive," in which he noted "growing problems with security" in Benghazi and "growing frustration" on the part of local residents with Libyan police and security forces. These forces the ambassador characterized as "too weak to keep the country secure."

It’s pretty apparent that Steven’s was a sacrificial lamb. Hopefully these documents will shed some more light on it.

Sickening. He was frightened and asked for help but the ‘oh-so-compassionate’ Hillary! and Barack decided it was much more important to keep up the ‘Al Qaeda is on the run’ pretense than to order protection for Americans in peril. They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law! Four Americans are DEAD because BHO and HC were protecting their own political interests .

“It’s pretty apparent that Steven’s was a sacrificial lamb. Hopefully these documents will shed some more light on it.”

Why? We were told within a few hours, and before the campaign props (bodies) were shipped to the campaign stop that the ambassador died of smoke inhalation.

Just supposing he didn’t die of smoke inhalation (and who really believes that he did?) why would our government ever allow anything to come to light that would disprove their IMMEDIATELY reported cause of death?

Scarcely more than two months had passed since Stevens had notified the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice and other agencies about a "recent increase in violent incidents," including "attacks against western interests." "Until the GOL (Government of Libya) is able to effectively deal with these key issues," Stevens wrote on June 25, "the violence is likely to continue and worsen."

Homeland Security? Gimme a break.

Homeland Security is 're out there looking for 5 black men who are going to 'overthrow Chicago'... wait, that not it, it's 5 white conservatives who are going to overthrow Philadelphia... In short, Homeland Security is nuts, useless and the only 'enemy' they know are Tea Party members. I'm not surprised they missed something real...

This issue is much, MUCH deeper than the Ambassador & the stupid video. It’s a cover up from the speech in Cairo 2009 that encouraged and inspired to set the Arab world on fire. His last sentence in arabic: “I’m with you.” And he’s a PLANT/traitor to take down the U.S. within!!!

Dana Perrino appeared to be fighting to control her emotions. This is a tragedy with the aftermath a complete travesty and SHOULD transcend politics. Unfortunately Democrats will always just be lying liberals.

While I think they are few and far between, we will now get to see which democrats really care about this country by how they respond to this information.

Following ALL of this very, very closely. Look for threatmatrix in the keywords. Meanwhile, obama friends are actively murdering Christians in Lebanon now.

This was reported well over an hour ago. Was wondering when it would be posted on FR (I can’t do links).

Devastating for the president, Hillary, Petraeus, etc. No one in this corrupt monarchy stood on the side of truth or protecting our assets. There’s no way any of them should escape the wrath of the voters. Feel bad for Petraeus, but he had his chance and blew it.

I just did a search to see if the docs had been posted anywhere. No.

But I noticed this at ABC noNews:

Which is what I found when I clicked the link to this after doing a search:

” - - - It’s pretty apparent that Steven’s was a sacrificial lamb.”

Is this what is meant by the expression: “ To Obamanate an Ambassador? “

She knows how much the maligned “ George Bush” cared, and what he did
to keep us safe.

She is too professional to just let it rip, and tell it like it is.....
