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.

Gross incompetence at the highest levels.

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.”

Valerie said”NO!”
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.

All they needed to do was to let the modern Puff the Magic Dragon snuff out the perimeter.

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?

” - - - “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,” a high-ranking government official told CBS News. “They were not allowed to do their job. They were not called upon.” - - - - “

Who made the decision to NOT call in the CSG?

They are pretending to be journalists and biding their time for their next opportunity to strike a blow for marxism and world government.

Only the POTUS had the authority to act!

0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

They confirm everything Col. Hunt said about automatic notifications to the WH and add more details.

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!

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.

Comments ?

Nope.

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.

"CBS News has agreed not to quote directly from the emails"

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.
