On Sept. 11, 2012, terrorists overran the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya and murdered our ambassador along with three other Americans.

Now, more than six weeks after the attack, some of the most important questions remain unanswered:

Who did this and why?

Could the attack have been prevented or repelled after it began?

What did the White House know and when?

Each new day seems to bring new revelations.

Each new revelation seems to bring about more unanswered questions.

This thing is growing daily. Obama may have thought they could keep it under wraps until after the election, but the MSM are going to be forced to report on it some day. Many local newspapers have already started.

I don’t see where he was re-assigned anywhere.

They knew.

Did the White House order a cover-up over the murder of Libya's US Ambassador? - October 2nd, 2012

But the real smoking gun is whether the Obama administration was warned in advance that al-Qaeda was planning an attack. A number of Israeli newspapers have suggested that Washington was warned as early as September 4 – a week earlier – that the environment in Benghazi was becoming increasingly hostile and anti-American, while in London the Foreign Office took the decision to withdraw all its consular staff from Benghazi two months before the murders. This decision was based on an intelligence assessment made by MI6 that al-Qaeda was openly operating in the area following a failed assassination attempt on Sir Dominic Asquith, Britain's ambassador to Libya, in June.

It is well known that British intelligence works closely with its counterpart in America, and if MI6 knew al-Qaeda was operating in the Benghazi region, then it is highly likely that the CIA did too.

If the CIA claims they didn’t know, they are claiming they are not doing their job. This is their job to KNOW - more so, when others did know! They are pawns of the commie ‘G*d damn America’ president!

I wonder if it's related to details released yesterday by Fox (posted by several on FR):

The American special operators, Woods, Doherty and at least two others were part of the Global Response Staff, a CIA element, based at the CIA annex and were protecting CIA operators who were part of a mission to track and repurchase arms in Benghazi that had proliferated in the wake of Muammar Qaddafi's fall. Part of their mission was to find the more than 20,000 missing MANPADS, or shoulder-held missiles capable of bringing down a commercial aircraft. According to a source on the ground at the time of the attack, the team inside the CIA annex had captured three Libyan attackers and was forced to hand them over to the Libyans. U.S. officials do not know what happened to those three attackers and whether they were released by the Libyan forces.

(Second last paragraph in article.)

“BUSTED… Former Top Defense Official: If Obama Gave Order to Protect Benghazi Heroes There’d Be Paper Trail (There Was No Order)

...Bing West, a former Assistant Secretary of Defense, told Greta Van Susteren,

“If that actually happened the way President Obama said it happened, there’s a paper trail and I think people reasonably enough can say, “Can we see the order?” because hundreds of others supposedly saw this order.

Obama just got caught. He lied about his securing our personnel in Benghazi. And now the world will know about it.”

They knew. Obamas intention is to humiliate and bring down the US. The prevarication now is to save his election.

Of course they knew as did the commie lying POS. I can’t believe there was not one American there who would stand up and said ‘no way will I abide by this anti American order’. They will look the other way, also, and never protect any one of us either. The commie must be laughing his butt off how easy it is to take over America. There is no more allegiance or Patriotism in the midst of evil. Everyone for himself.

Woods and Doherty were told to “Stand Down”. They went to the consulate anyway. We needed more like the guys at the CIA annex.

Does anyone else think possible that Obama intentionally did not save Chris Stevens, the Ambassador, because he was gun running, trying to recover shoulder fired weapons that had fallen into muslim bortherhood hands and that could bring down an aircraft, and didn’t want the world to know that and other mistakes he made in Lybia?

And they did the right thing and where are they know?

See how radical the COMMIE is and those who bow to his agenda? What part doesn't some Americans get - there is not one thing this anti-American POS has done FOR America but everything AGAINST. His plan all along with his 'God D*mn America' evil mindset and his lying tongue denies it. He NEEDS to be pulled from the driver seat, thrown to the curb and hauled off!

This blogger claims Woods and Doherty took out 60 jihadists before being murdered. He does not cite a source for this but a good read.

Additionally, the Embassy in Egypt was being attacked, harassed, LONG before anything happened in Libya. Clearly, it should have dawned on someone that an under secured embassy in Libya was probably a mistake.

It seems that “they” found about 5,000 of them but they really don’t know how many are still missing. Do you feel safe now? Dontchya just love how incompetent the Obama Administration is? I'll be flying overseas a few weeks from now and feel so much safer now that The Obama Administration has allowed thousands upon thousands of air to sea missiles into Mideast Terrorists' hands. Just another typical Obama FUBAR outcome.

I thought they were going to show it tonight also.

this morning they chopped it down to 20 minutes.

I've been putting this on a number of threads:

**************************************************************

Info on Benghazi keeps coming out.....

Check the keyword for Benghazi....absolute torrents of articles and statements.

Saw an abbreviated Brett Baer Special Report on the Benghazi coverup ,...attack this morning.

Expect more to be shown tonight and Sunday ...believe at 10 pm EST.
