Emails detail unfolding Benghazi attack on Sept. 11 (Obama lied to the Media and American People)
CBS ^ | 10/24/2012 | Sharyl Attkisson

Posted on 10/24/2012 3:28:42 AM PDT by tobyhill

It was six weeks ago on Tuesday that terrorists attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Now, CBS News has obtained email alerts that were put out by the State Department as the attack unfolded. Four Americans were killed in the attack, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

These emails contain the earliest description so far of what happened at Benghazi the night of the attack.

Read the emails (PDF) Ambassador warned Libya was "volatile and violent" Why no one has been right about Libya CIA saw possible terror ties day after Libya hit: AP

At 4:05 p.m. Eastern time, on September 11, an alert from the State Department Operations Center was issued to a number government and intelligence agencies. Included were the White House Situation Room, the office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the FBI.

"US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack" -- "approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM (Chief of Mission/embassy) personnel are in the compound safe haven."

At 4:54 p.m., less than an hour later, another alert: "the firing... in Benghazi...has stopped...A response team is on site attempting to locate COM (embassy) personnel."

Then, at 6:07 p.m., State sent out another alert saying the embassy in Tripoli reported the Islamic military group "Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibilty for Benghazi Attack"... "on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli."

Yes they will - because they did it in 2007/08 - and it worked — “Turn Wrong Go Wrong” is the US MSM motto!

I’m waiting for the families of those killed to express their outrage about this & the drone that was overhead observing the attack, and Obama not sending any help while the 7 hour attack went on.

This is a pretty big “Whopper” though. I don't know how they can continue their support. Even if he gets reelected, I think he gets impeached within a year.

Plus he took off to Vegas, knowing full well America had been attacked by terrorists.

A terrorist attack would require him to put his campaign and fund-raising on hold. What an abomination for a commander in chief.

Can we all agree on here that using the words lie and Obama in the same sentence are redundant?

Dear Leader knew

"Plugs" Biden knew

"Her Thigness" Hitlery knew

National Security Adviser "Crapper" knew

The FBI knew

DHS and Big Sis knew

JCS (and bottom-feeding, scumbag) Gen Dempsey knew

THEY ALL KNEW and this "coverup" should be bigger than Watergate and should have sunk this Admin....and would have already, if the Leftist, biased, corrupt, Lame Stream Media were not protecting the RATS' and O'Bozzo's butts.

My question to the media is, are they going to continue their support for Obama despite lie after lie after lie?

Well....no. Here is a link to this morning's editorial from the ultra-liberal, quasi-socialist Tampa Bay Times, that endorsed Obama. They don't even acknowledge Obama's lies and instead attempt to go after Romney: Romney's shifting stands

With the truth coming out bit by bit, Romney’s avoidance of a detailed attack RE: Benghazi during the debate is looking like the right thing.

Did I hear that the Senate is to hold a hearing on Friday? Or did I dream that?

The MSM has become part of a cult.

Members of a cult always find some reason to accept the lies of their leader as necessary for the good of the “group”.

I can’t imagine Pres. Bush doing it. And there’s something even more disgusting about it because it was Vegas.

A terrorist attack would require him to put his campaign and fund-raising on hold. What an abomination for a commander in chief”.

Absolutely agree

I’d give it a good shot that RR Campaign knew this story was coming out.

With the sheer number of people who knew about this 2 hours after the attack - and how many of those people aren’t fans of Obama - I have no proof ...

... but perhaps RR knew, and decided to let Obama fry on his own, for Romney not to get muddied, while they continued to convince swing and previous Obama voters that Romney could handle the job.

If Obama does fry for this, best for Romney not to be the guy who explicitly fried him - reduces the hatred of former Obama supporters for the new President.

No proof, but it seems to fit.

CBS actually broke it at 652 pm.

Possibly.

Keep this story alive. The New York Times put Abu Ghraib on the front page 47 times - 32 days in a row at one point - and nobody died there. This story was 1day in a row on the front page and is far bigger and much more serious.

It's not just about sheer incompetence, foolish foreign policy and dereliction of duty...

   

The coverup, whitewash and media blackout followed the lies and attempt to steal the first amendment!

The memo reads “20 armed men”. Not only did Obama lie about what he knew, he lied about who the killers were. They were not demonstrators, they were terrorist.

I’ll tell you what is just as sickening....the media cover up.
For shizzles and giggles I flipped to the TodayShow NBC, just to see if they would lead off with anything about this. Yea right. I couldn’t watch for more than a minute, as they were talking about a comment some republican candidate made, apparently on par with Aikens pro-life comment. That was their lead this moring!! Fueling the faux war on women.

The old media is both irrelevant and an object of ridicule. The new media has its work cut out in disseminating news beyond its own confines toward those who are still under the influenza of the old.

Obama lied, 4 people died!

Not only did he lie, but there was NO military response to the attack. They could have had a pair of fighters there in, what, 20 minutes. Nothing shouts “Get off my Lawn!” like a pair of F-15’s approaching at low altitude, machine guns a-blazin’!

Why did they watch instead of react? I think that we know the answer to that - as was posted on FR a few days ago, this was a coordinated plan between the White House and the “rebels” to set up a hostage situation whereby they could trade the blind terrorist for the release of our diplomat.

It’s all about the election - and it has backfired big time.

The excuses change but the results remain the same. Dead innocents/infidels/Americans.

“The universalism of Islam, in its all-embracing creed, is imposed on the believers as a continuous process of warfare, psychological and political, if not strictly military. . . . The Jihad, accordingly, may be stated as a doctrine of a permanent state of war, not continuous fighting.” - Majid Khadduri - The Quranic Concept of War

“Workplace violence”? “Video”?

TREASON at our highest levels of government

Then again, they let Clinton slide - even through Emperor Zero is far worst than any one before - and perhaps after him...

Have you heard what happened to these two? I.e. how they died, who they were, etc.

heard they were sent in via helicopter but were shot down. Don’t even know if that much is true. Haven’t seen any follow up.
