Posted on 11/01/2012 8:11:01 PM PDT by tflabo
CBS News has learned that during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Obama Administration did not convene its top interagency counterterrorism resource: the Counterterrorism Security Group, (CSG).
"The CSG is the one group that's supposed to know what resources every agency has. They know of multiple options and have the ability to coordinate counterterrorism assets across all the agencies,"

I’m sorry but think it was a hit on the ambassador hence the stand down order.
True, except in this Benghazi case, I'm convinced it was a deliberate act of treason with several of the definitions present.
That makes sense in their minds.
It was only a local protest about a US video... /S
If this was a covert CIA operation they why wasn’t the ambassador’s team provided more protection upfront or at least have a backup plan for security/rescue? He warned them of a hostile enviroment, terrorists nearby and his requests were denied and ignored. Gross incompetence by the flux ups in Wash DC. and their obfuscations/coverups.
“The response process was isolated at the most senior level,” says an official referring to top officials in the executive branch. “My fellow counterterrorism professionals and I (were) not consulted.”
Obama said we can blame it on the movie.
Then he went to bed and American heroes died waiting for the help that would surely come.
Weirder and weirder, treacherous to treacherousER....
Ignored bombing and warnings, removed security, appointed AQ operative as security head, forbade rescue, sat back and WATCHED ASSAULT, snuff-film style.
What did I mss...?
All they needed to do was to let the modern Puff the Magic Dragon snuff out the perimeter.
I’ll bet that they did not run this on the nightly worlds news on TV.
They didn’t even need that. A single supersonic flyover of an F-18 at low altitude would have broken the back of the assault.
Are they finally waking up to total incompetence of the Obama administration?
Has CBS realized that if Romney wins there could be massive payback for ignoring this story?
Are they simply kicking what they see as a dead dog?
Four days is a very long time suddenly!

Who made the decision to NOT call in the CSG?
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 was MIA. 0bama Is A Deserter!
As that retard Colon Bowel believes, there is no shame in wretched excess power being used.
I think so too. and maybe the amb found out what the traitor had in mind for him. If those assumptions are correct then the meeting with the Turkish amb that night might’ve had more to do with getting out of that place alive.
If it were me, there wouldn't be a single stone upon another from the outer wall of the embassy for two blocks out in any direction.
That entire zone would have no human remains larger than a scorched postage stamp.
THAT is how you stop an assault on American territory, and how you discourage any future attacks.
I merely cited a way a total pussy could stop the attack without actually killing any of his fellow muslims.
The payback against the Enemedia will be even more massive
if Zero wins. Real Americans will hold them accountable. Looking forward
to TPNN cleaning their lily-livered liberal clocks.
Now we know that CBS was one of the "news" agencies that Beck was talking about yesterday. They're putting this out to cover their butt, while still not telling the whole story.
I would really like to know if the amb was a member of the famous bath house in Chicago or who his hometown friends were...it might tell us more if whe knew whose paths his crossed with.
