TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) It began around nightfall on Sept. 11 with around 150 bearded gunmen, some wearing the Afghan-style tunics favored by Islamic militants, sealing off the streets leading to the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. They set up roadblocks with pick-up trucks mounted with heavy machine guns, according to witnesses.
The trucks bore the logo of Ansar al-Shariah, a powerful local group of Islamist militants who worked with the municipal government to manage security in Benghazi, the main city in eastern Libya and birthplace of the uprising last year that ousted Moammar Gadhafi after a 42-year dictatorship.

Congress is in recess.
Nothing is going to happen on that front until they re-convene in late November.
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: My sources tell me Obama was in the room watching Benghazi attack.
He also replaced generals and admirals who refused to stand down-
Obama Administration Replaces Top Generals Following Benghazi Disaster
“Dead men tell no tales”
Believe me, that is one aspect of BenghaziGate that really has my brain twisting. I am not “conspiracy theory” prone, by nature, but this is one time that my brain keeps being dragged unbidden back to “why did they decide it would be better if he were dead?”, on the continued possibility that something’s going on much more nefarious than a simple failure of leadership.
150 men, machine gun trucks, and mortars doesn’t sound much like a “spontaneous demonstration” about a “disgusting video”, does it.
If it is they have a better 2nd Amendment than we do! /s LOL
They’ll say Ham and a Navy Admiral were told to respond but refused to do so. If obama, Panetta, Hillary, Petraeus and the Joint Chiefs tell this lie, they can get away with it and it won’t matter what the general and admiral say. And I’m sure they’ve told them that they might not get that retirement pay they’ve been planning on.
You are correct. It wasn’t a simple failure.
Remember, there were multiple ‘events’ that occurred that day, done by different ‘groups’.
One group was a group of recently released (former) terrorists, who were contracted to destroy the CIA station that was trying to recover the Manpads Missiles. (recover, as if they were ours to begin with...haha).
Another was a planned demonstration against the Embassy based on the leadership of two of Stevens (local citizenry) employees.
The two events got entangled when Stevens tried to move from one location to the other, leading to his death.
There is an ongoing influx of weapons that were used to fuel the Arab Spring and the protests across the Middle East on 9/11/12 and people like Cindy Sheehan rode in ships trying to protect the CARGO SHIPS that were carrying these weapons. They were supported by the DEM(oh, who’s kidding) SOCIALIST PARTY.
BTW, in Libya, they had a recent ‘weapons buyback’ to try and get some of the weapons back, not that the PLANNED TAKEOVER is almost complete. It won’t do to let the ‘citizenry’ have powerful enough weapons to overthrow their new MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD Masters.
