Skip to comments.Catherine Herridge: State Department Culpable in Death of Ambassador & Three Americans (Video)
Posted on 10/31/2012 8:07:37 PM PDT by kristinn
FOX News foreign policy analyst Catherine Herridge told Greta Van Susteren Wednesday, "From what I see the State Department has culpability in the death of the US Ambassador and three Americans."
This followed the damning memo that was released today signed by Ambassador Stevens in August and sent to the State Department. The classified cable on August 15 warned the Obama Administration that the Benghazi consulate could not withstand a "coordinated attack."

Catherine Herridge, I have learned to trust and depend on you.
Know what I heard her say? She gave obama an out. It’ll all be laid at the State Department. And probably someone well below Hillary.
And she said someone once told her not to look for a conspiracy when it may be incompetence. Not an exact quote.
Please Cathrine, you Little Doll, don’t go near Fort Marcy Park. Stay Safe Babe!
Thanks for posting! Saw this tonight. Noticed that Katherine gave Obama credit for being incompetent on this and didn’t appear to suggest sinister movtives to what happened in Bengahzi... instead mentioning the election.
I think more sinister issues will surface, particularly with regard to why what was going on there in the first place, including who was really behind the video... see a common element in the spin below?
Hillary Clinton Speaking at a press conference from the State Department on September 13, 2012
“Let me state very clearly — and I hope it is obvious — that the United States Government had absolutely nothing to do with this video.”
Press Gaggle by Press Secretary Jay Carney — Golden, CO, 9/13/12
“As Secretary Clinton said today, the United States government had nothing to do with this movie.”

“Weve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with.”
White House spokesman Jay Carney held a press briefing September 14, 2012
The reason why theres unrest is because of the film. This is in response to the film this is not a film that the United States government had anything to do with. We reject its message and its contents we find it both reprehensible.
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice, goes on morning shows at NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX and CNN. September 16, 2012
Rice called the attack a “direct result of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the U.S. government had nothing to do with.”
Sept. 18: Obama was asked about the Benghazi attack on The Late Show with David Letterman.
As offensive as this video was and, obviously, weve denounced it and the United States government had nothing to do with it.
President Barack Obamas speech to the UN General Assembly full text September 25, 2012
“That is what we saw play out the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video”
Listened to Mark Levin tonight...he thinks she deserves a Pulitzer Prize. I agree.
After that, it was THE someone who told them to STAND DOWN, and THE someone who refused to send in help when help was nearby.
Noticed how she reiterated her disgust in response to Greta’s allowance for incompetency.
I am 100% certain that this wavier exists because it is a Congressional requirement. I say this advisedly having served 28 years as an FSO and supervised post RSOs.
Good for Catherine Herridge, proves she’s human and cares about what’s right.
Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, that whole repulsively putrid bunch and their horrendous inaction and lies should have every reporter screaming about Benghazi.
Sorry for the spelling and link to Aljazeera in the last post.... the link is not directing like I thought to the story from them about the video after the attack.
In the absence of answers from the White House, people will begin speculating.
I myself cannot think of any reason why someone would lower security and then flat out deny military assistance it in a situation where threats of violence are increasing... especially on the anniversary of 911 weeks before a presidential election UNLESS... this was far more than incompetence and more like an orchestrated October surprise.
A caller in to Hannity today made a very good observation that Hannity really didn’t pick up on very well.
These bozos in the white house were watching real time the events that were unfolding as these Navy Seals were requesting permission to go in and assist when they were told to stand down.
This means that observers in the white house were not content to just watch 4-5 servicemen and an ambassador be killed... they were prepared to watch at least 30 people be killed or ABDUCTED.... and the 4-5 navy seals pretty much foiled whatever plans had been laid to create a situation that Obama could manipulate and resolve right before the election.
That’s right... I think Obama actually set this thing up.
And until he is willing and able to come forth with viable answers as to what happened and why, I must assume as a matter of speculation that he had a hand in orchestrating this attack at some level... most likely by proxy.
High treason is punishable by death.
Time for Obama to start answering questions... TRUTHFULLY! or like the birth certificate issue, it will never go away.
I heard the same thing, Terry... I dig Catherine Herridge and all, but with the WH tuned in to the fire fight in Benghazi live as it happened, Zero and company beyond State are just as culpable. She shouldn’t narrow the blame to just being related to the prior requests for more security. How about more security the night it all went down?! More than State were involved with that part of the event, that’s for sure.
FYI, I think I read a few years back that CH took Fox to court, wanting a raise and the judge threw it out, saying half a million a year was more than enough. I guess she’s earning that paycheck now, though. Stay on ‘em, Cat!
“In the absence of answers from the White House, people will begin speculating.”
You are so right. I was wondering do we know whose bullets killed the two ex-seals on the rooftop?
I too believe that The Traitor is behind the attack!
Side note about Cathy, she gave about half her liver for her child...
Wow. Excellent compilation. Methinks they doth protest too much...
That’s gonna force Hillary to leak docs to salvage her reputation.
Thank you, I didn’t know that. May the Dear Lord Bless her and her child.
