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!
Your answer is...................YES!!
The Media will NEVER support a Republican Ever. . . .
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.
Well at least they’re reporting it. That’s all we’re gonna get.
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?
"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.
who cares? Romney testified at a divorce and the woman only got 5mil.
Guess Obamas September surprise (duh 9-11) has turned into Romneys October surprise.
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
CNN running it now: Headline: “Whitehouse knew of Benghazi terror claim”.
We need to get these Dirt Bags out of the White House.
They are lying Socialist Scum.
Especially the two that died in the second wave. They could have been saved by reinforcements from Italy.
Couldn’t help but notice this story broke the morning of Trumps announcement of something “Big” involving Obama.
This article is written by a CBS Babe. CBS is the MSM.
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?
