Skip to comments.Libya timeline suggests cover-up in attack (Good Synopsis)

....On Sept. 12, Director of National IntelligenceJames R. Clapper told the White House that a spontaneous demonstration over the Internet video grew into a violent attack. Two days later, Mr. Petraeus echoed that account in closed-door comments to senators, according to news reports.
At the time, Mr. Petraeus had ended an extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, who was at the center of an FBI investigation over threatening emails to a women she saw as a romantic rival. Conservatives have asked whether the Petraeus scandal prompted the director to toe the administration line. Mr. Petraeus has since resigned.
Senators are expected to ask Mr. Clapper and Mr. Petraeus, who has agreed to testify at another time and place, how they came to their conclusions in the face of facts that did not fit the White Houses rush to dismiss Islamic terrorists as the attackers.
The CIAs station chief in Tripoli, Libya, immediately branded the attack as the work of militants.
The Defense Intelligence Agency on Sept. 12 briefed the Pentagon that Ansar al-Shariah, a Libyan group linked to al Qaeda, likely carried out the attack. An email from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli that arrived at the White House about 5 p.m. said Ansar al-Shariah had claimed responsibility.
Over the next two days, Libyan security officials told the Western press that the attack was planned to coincide with the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in the United States.
In Washington, Patrick F. Kennedy, the State Department undersecretary in charge of diplomatic security, told congressional staffers on Sept. 12 that the assault bore all the hallmarks of a well-orchestrated terrorist operation.
Despite the mounting evidence, Mr. Clapper and other Obama officials stuck to the video-made-them-do-it pronouncement, although the president made vague references to terrorism on two occasions.

One question I've been pondering in the wake of Zero's presser yesterday: Why was Susan Rice the face of the administration following the attacks? Shouldn't that have been Hillary? Did Hillary refuse to peddle the WH line because she knew it was a lie? Was Rice promised the SoS spot in a 2nd term if she showed that the was a "good soldier" for Team Zero?
If one timeline doesn’t match the other(s, someone is lying...............
Hillary lied also and said it was because of the video. Everyone gives her too much slack, and makes excuses for her.
Hillary lied also and said it was the video. Everyone lets her get by with her lies
To put this in terms of the OED word of the year, the Petraeus omnishambles was designed to distract attention from the Benghazi obamashambles.
One major fact not accounted for is Petraeus’ subsequent fact-finding trip to Benghazi after his testimony on the 13th when he supported the idea of the video (which seems odd in itself - wasn't he getting the real time reports?). Both the time of that trip, and what was discovered then have not been fully accounted for.
Unfortunately, the CIA is still “evaluating” the Petraeus report before releasing it to congress.
VERY closely atching events in Israel. Were these rocket attacks on Israel timed to distract from Benghazi?
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Think you are on to something, Mesta. Makes sense. If that is what is taking place. More in the store and coming for a visit soon? Don’t know here, but think you are on to something. zer0 sure did inherit a mess. Saw W in the clouds on a song video. Praying that wasn’t an omen. Secret Service may want to close ranks. JIC
Make up a totally un believable story. Send out the poor little black girl to lie. Anyone who does not believes that poor little black girl is a RACIST !
Ignore the CIA station chief on he ground in country.

At 4pm in Washington, D.C., they knew the mission was under attack. At 5pm, Obama had a meeting with Panetta and Biden and probably Dempsey. Where was Valerie Jarrett from 4pm to midnight?
Is there a record of Obama talking to Valerie Jarrett anytime from 4pm to midnight?
Are the rockets falling on Israel today once under Omar Kadafi lockdown before the alleged POTUS set them free?
My guess is that the rocket attacks were waiting for the result of the Presidential elections. They think Obama will not back Israel strongly. So they can attack now.
Benghazi however is related to the strong response from Israel. They have the goods on Obama. They are using McCain and Graham (IE - Lieberman) to increase the heat on Obama over Benghazi. Obama cannot support the Pali's as the Pali's thought he could. Israel has been freed from its American chains and they took out the top Pali commander right at the beginning. No holds barred. Now the Pali's are gonna bring in the Egyptian PM to try to stop the devastating Israeli attacks.
So basically Obama has been horribly compromised on this issue due to his criminal activities. If the Obama drones had the ability for free thought, they would know this. Instead all they can do now is cry for the Pali's. Might I suggest they all get on a boat and act as human shields in Pali land.
From much of what I am reading and seeing, the answer is yes. Libyan weapons have been flowing into gaza which is what it appears the ex-seals were trying to stop.
Greg on the FIVE just said Susan Rice had the best In-tail available.....cough cough
This could be the opening salvo in the Iran War because Hamas is a proxy army of Iran getting missiles and other arms from them (and the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood).
Iran did not want a war with Israel to start before the election, IMO, because that could have resulted in a Romney win if Iran succeeded in inflicting casualties on Israel and the US (which they seem confident that they can do) so the green light wasn’t given by Iran for Hamas to start rocketing Israel until after the election.
Next up, Hezbollah starts rocketing Israel from the North!
Hezbollah and Hamas tag-teamed Israel back in 2006 on Iran’s orders when each of them attempted to kidnap Israeli soldiers in a coordinated attack in the north and south, which only succeeded in capturing Shalit on the Gaza border but did force Israel to fight a two-front war.
The psychological visual associated with your post has made me impotent and probably for life, "damn you hoosiermama," you are a cruel woman. :)
