The truth about the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi is trickling out slowly. The latest development is found in a classified cable obtained by Fox News that reveals the compound in Libya was unprepared to withstand a coordinated attack due to lack of security and other issues.
Appearing on Fox News with Greta Van Susteren on Thursday, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) revealed two more interesting pieces of the Benghazi puzzle. First, that U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens rang Deputy Chief of Mission Gregory Hicks on Sept. 11 to tell him the consulate was under attack.
He said that shortly after 9:40 p.m. what happened is his phone rang and he didnt recognize the number so he didnt answer it...

He is showing OUR enemies that they are not HIS enemies. He is on their side. He is OUR enemy.
He probably assumed it was the RNC asking for more money.
So sad. Can’t believe anyone would vote this pitiful administration back into office.
There was no surprise about the attack. There was no 'failure of intel.' The attack was predicted in precise detail a month before it occurred. The draw down of security had to be intentional.
The failure to approve a rescue had to be intentional.
Keeping the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) in the dark about the attack had to be intentional.
Tweeting apologies for the 'anti-Muhammed video' beginning early that morning, repeatedly blaming all the violence at all of our embassies on the 'video' and making an apology video to air in Pakistan had to be intentional.
Stevens presence in Benghazi on 9-11 had to be intentional.
Can’t believe anyone could have voted for them in the first place.
Placemark. I just can’t keep up with all the Benghazi news, I just need to check your comments and I’ll be more informed!
Thanks for putting stuff together.
Don’t feel bad. I spend a lot of time, all my time online, following this story and I can’t keep up. Thank you for the compliment. If it weren’t for many other FReepers doing their best to keep up I wouldn’t be able to collect and assess the things that I do.
Placemark for tomorrow (later today).
When I see the numbers who are willing to vote suicide? (Obama)
We are at a tipping point akin to the late 1850’s
Someone on twitter called “St Obama of Assisi has this great tweet:
“So Obama rushes in to defend Sandra Fluke from verbal attack. But ignored pleas from those murdered in #Benghazi for 7 FULL hours?”
The typical Obama voter is unaware of these myriad and damning developments; and if he/she were to become aware, wouldn’t care.
As the old saying goes “never ascribe to malice that which can be explained by incompetence”, which is the counter to many a conspiracy theory.
However, as you are laying out so nicely, the staggering amount of coincidence involved means that simple incompetence no longer meets the Occam’s Razor test. Therefore, it is reasonable to start considering malice and intent in this case.
Look at all the muzzies w/in the DOJ and State Dept...is Obama islam’s Trojan Horse against the West?
Consider that I’m only hitting the high points. Only a few of the high points. I think they’ve blown Occam’s Razor right out of the water. Or to put it another way; Occam’s Razor is pointing straight at 0coward, Hillbilly and company.
Objectively and sincerely...has he EVER tried to actually hide it? Really? Ever?
