Skip to comments.Herridge On Cable Month Before Benghazi Attack: "Smoking Gun Warning Here"
Posted on 10/31/2012 10:18:30 PM PDT by Roberts
"I really believe, having read it, that it is the smoking gun warning here. You've got this emergency meeting in Benghazi, less than a month before the attack. At that briefing, the people are told that there are ten, ten, Islamic militias and al-Qaeda groups in Benghazi. The consulate can not sustain a coordinated attack and they need extra help. This information goes directly to the office of the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. So, again, you have the culpability of the State Department. This is a very specific warning that they're in trouble, they need help and they see an attack on the horizon," FOX News' Catherine Herridge reported on FOX News' "On the Record" Wednesday night.
"I believe based on this cable the point that was being made, that they wanted made publicly, not just in a classified study, is that the warning that came from Benghazi was very specific. It said 'we can not withstand an attack,' the militias are everything, al-Qaeda is here. This was known to the U.S. intelligence community as well. And that they really could not see a situation where security was going to turn around. They send that it was trending negatively," Herridge further reported.
"I can't think of anything that would be more specific than if these groups had emailed the State Department and said, 'Here's the time, here's the place, and here's the method of the attack,'" she said.

And when did Glen Doherty go there? I have this vague recollection that his dad said that his son visited in the summer before heading to Libya. His dad was concerned about this mission. But I don’t remember what else he said. It seemed like this mission caused Mr. Doherty more angst than he would normally feel. It is just the feeling I got from what he said. I have no idea what the source was.
Herridge is bright and intense and she has been on this like white on rice, along with other FNC reporters. They smell blood in the water (not to mention Pulitzers) and they will not be deterred. Whether it happens before the election or not I don’t know but I believe this will doom both Hussein and Clinton when it all comes out. Pretty soon there’s going to be a new sheriff in town, and even the MSM won’t be able to sweep this under the rug.
I’d bet money on a Pulitzer for Herridge.
Just saw the report after getting home from work.
It looks as though the _resident is gonna blame Bubba’s wife.
I hope this expedites the leaks she must have.
Remember the photo of Hillary holding the newspaper with the headline “Bush Knew”?
You can bet the MSM will try. Right now, the Hurricane is dominating the airwaves, so they get a reprise from Benghazi. Or an excuse as I like to call it. Not to diminish the horrible devastation, but we need some answers before the election.
0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

There are three scandals here...
Denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.
The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.
ONE man had the authority to act that night.
ONE man deserted his post!
0bama Is A Deserter!
Cables indicate the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, SENT HIM THERE with FULL KNOWLEDGE of what was going to HAPPEN.
HILLARY SET HIM UP.
ping...more pre-attack info coming out.
I admire both the Fox Gals doing the heavy lifting.
First it was SOS, then the _resident. Now we are back to the SOS.
It looks like we have different groups in this administration Positioning.
Could not happen to a more suitable group. I only wish it would have come out sooner.
I watched her segment on Greta’s tonight. She’s a serious and honest reporter.
Sounds like a Soros funded thug organization.
File a complaint against them with the FCC
Use the links to file complaints with the FCC against all the alphabet medias too, and then praise Fox for doing the job that the press is supposed to do.
That was about the time when Hillary was attending dance parties at foreign nightclubs.......
AND Hillary's role in Watergate hearings. Wasn't it her advise that Nixon should not be allowed legal counsel to defend himself.
Catherine Herridge has always been one of the good ones.
I agree.. I always try to watch her reports.
Hers and Jennifer Griffin’s.
Let’s see the cable. This should be all over the internet.
Anthony Weiner is her beard, Huma Abedin.
Obama, Hillary, Panetta AND PATREAUS ALL have BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS!! Charlene Lamb also!!! THEY ARE ALL CULPABLE!!!! MURDERERS!!
Hillary HIRED that ex-GITMO detainee QUOM!!!!!! He IS AL Queda!!!
Don’t forget Susan Rice...she was lying about the video on all the major networks...she knew, and she knows who gave her ‘marching orders’.
What exactly is Abedin's job? I can only guess she has all access to all Hillary's incoming and outgoing correspondence. This if true alone compromises Hillary's position as Secretary of State. Same with Obama with Jarret and Axelrod in the White House.
Hired him to do what? What is truly bizarre is the willing accomplices in the JonStewart media. In a Muslim world they would be the first in line to find a new profession. Makes no sense.
Nominally, deputy chief of staff and aide. She's been "with" Hillary since 1996.
I really don't know what degree of access and influence she has, but obviously she is "trusted" by Hillary, and considered capable.
It turns out, however, that Abedin herself is directly connected to Abdullah Omar Naseef, a major Muslim Brotherhood figure involved in the financing of al-Qaeda. Abedin worked for a number of years at the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs as assistant editor of its journal. The IMMA was founded by Naseef, who remained active in it for decades, overlapping for several years with Abedin. Naseef was also secretary general of the Muslim World League in Saudi Arabia, perhaps the most significant Muslim Brotherhood organization in the world. In that connection, he founded the Rabita Trust, which is formally designated as a foreign terrorist organization under American law due to its support of al-Qaeda.Huma Abedin's Brotherhood Ties Are Not Just a Family Affair - Andrew McCarthy - July 27, 2012
So since 1996 Hillary Clinton, as co-president, has had by her side a person with intimate knowledge of Muslim Brotherhood activities.
No wonder she was so desperate to have that 'soviet-style' commission established to blame President Bush for ignoring all that intel.
She will deserve it for the job she is doing. Remember though the Pulitzer has been politicized for a long time by lefties.
Now, if she were a latter day Walter Duranty................
SECURITY....look it up in the article “Weapons Hunting”.
What was SO important that they HAD to be there on 9/11? I know the ambassador was supposed to dedicate a school named for a Libyan that protected a downed pilot....and he met with the Turkish ambassador.....BUT 9/11 of all days??????
>>Whether it happens before the election or not I dont know but I believe this will doom both Hussein and Clinton when it all comes out. <<
Speaking for myself, I would rather see them take their time and do this right, regardless of election timeline.
I want this out ASAP, and justice takes at least a LITTLE time.
If it comes out AFTER an Obama defeat, it is double-damning, since politics cannot be so readily blamed.
Who leaked the cable?
Is there really at least one true American in the Department of State?
And when reading this report, don’t forget the June 6, 2012 terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate:
“Chaffetz: Administration Pretended June 6 Terror Attack on Benghazi Consulate ‘Never Happened”
I wonder where Herridge is getting all of this information, too. How is she coming by it? I hope her sources are trustworthy.
“It looks as though the _resident is gonna blame Bubbas wife.”
I don’t know about that. Bill would not take kindly to being used for campaigning for Obama and then have Hillary take the rap after the election.
