Skip to comments.US spy agencies heard Benghazi attackers using State Dept. cell phones to call terrorist leaders
Posted on 06/11/2014 3:30:29 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.
The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

Every one of the democrats and GOPe traitors who support this administration need to face a judge, but they wont.
Obama and Clinton are PURE EVIL!!!
I hope all the idiots who thought it was a great idea to elect a bi-racial president on that basis alone...and fore go his socialist policies...are proud!
“seized” is a euphemism for
THE STATE DEPT GAVE THEM THE CELL PHONES.
And Dingy Harry says the multiple sources confirmed to Fox News are all lying.
Watching FOX with Bret Baier right now, he’s interviewing a former C-17 pilot.
The Administration has lied through its teeth from the get-go.
I’m just furious. Obama does nothing but lie to us at every turn. Impeach this piece of trash now.
Hillary might have committed her own treason during the attack.
EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say October 26, 2012 | Jennifer Griffin
Whistleblower: Hillary cut States counter-terrorism bureau out of Benghazi loop 05/06/2013 | Ed Morrissey
Montagraph put up a new video on May 1st. It is basically a refresher of his original findings of the connection between Stanley Inc., a DoD subcontractor, to the Innocence of Muslims video. He also shows when and by whom the name was changed.
Here is a video by another Vlogger who demonstrates how Innocence of Muslims was traced to Stanley Inc. through the meta-data.
Brett just got done with a powerful interview. The Obama admin, told them to stand down. This guy said he could have been there in about 4 hours.
Liars, all of them.
Security was infiltrated by terrorists
Here is a video of Rep. Chaffetz saying that Gen. Ham, commander of AFRICOM at that time, told him that assets were near enough to help and ready to go.There is no doubt whatsoever that the assets were in motion preparing to receive an order to go.
ADMIRAL LYONS: All those comforting words that We dont want to put our forces at risk. We had people at riskthey were crying for help! In a situation, you go with the resources you have availableand, in this particular case, we did have that 130-man Marine force recon team sitting there at Sigonella. Even if I only got 50 of them over there, that would have been significant in turning the situation around. We may not have been able to save the ambassador, but we certainly could have saved those other two SEALs that were over on the annex.
ADMIRAL LYONS: In perpetuating this lie, we also had administration officials lying to Congressional committees. Thats a felony. So, What difference does it make? It makes all the difference in the world. You cannot flaunt the truth here, just walk away from it and, basically, tell the American public to stuff it. Thats not acceptable.
The point on the organizing the two Marine anti-terrorist teams in Rota, that was good to go ahead and stand em up. What I find incomprehensible: The first team, it took them 23 hours to go a few hundred miles from Rota to Tripoli. I could go around the world in 23 hours, so that makes absolutely no sense to me.
Maybe I can catch a replay later. Thanks!
Yes they are. The low IQ voters don’t even know what Socialism is. The porch sitters enjoy their handouts. The tipping point has passed.
Don’t miss it. I have no doubt it will be big news tomorrow. Maybe not on MSBS or the alphabet channels, The Obama media will ignore it.
Hicks: Special Forces Furious Upon Being Told to Stand Down video at link
"According to Benghazi whistleblower Gregory Hicks, the deputy chief of mission in Libya, special forces were furious when they were told to stand down during the Benghazi attack. I will quote Lieutenant Colonel Gibson, Hicks told the House Oversight Committee in hearings today, He said, This is the first time in my career that a diplomat has more balls than somebody in the military."
This might be considered a stand down too.
Whistle-blower: Botched talking points hurt FBI probe of Benghazi attack
"Another whistle-blower questioned Wednesday why more military assets were not deployed sooner during the Benghazi terror attack. Mark Thompson, a former Marine and official with the State Department's Counterterrorism Bureau, said he was rebuffed by the White House when he asked for a specialized team -- known as a FEST team -- to be deployed. This is a unit made of special operations personnel, diplomatic security, intelligence and other officers."
Here is a third way a "stand down" policy was implemented IMO.
Blow-by-Blow: How Obama & Hillary Left Americans to Die
"Nordstrom further testified in writing that Hillary Clinton waived security requirements for the Benghazi consulate despite high and critical threat levels in the six categories of security standards established under the Overseas Security Policy Board and the Secure Embassy Construction and Counterterrorism Act of 1999. The waiver can only be authorized by the Secretary of State, who cannot delegate that responsibility to someone else. If the Secretary of State did not waive these requirements, who did so by ordering occupancy of the facilities in Benghazi and Tripoli? Nordstrom wrote."
Setting Stevens up to be kidnapped isn't plausible, you say??? IS RELEASING 5 TALIBAN COMMANDERS FOR ONE TRAITOR TO AMERICA REASONABLE??????
Adds new meaning to “obamaphones”.
Fox just said that interview will be up and running in a couple minutes at FOXnews.com
This is treason! How dare spy agencies harm Hillary’s chances. They’re giving aid and comfort to her enemies./s
Personally, I don't think Hillary is going to run. She was such a failed Secretary of State with Benghazi; the moronic Russian "reset button" with Putin now looking to re-constitute the Soviet Union; the Arab Spring that has turned the Middle East into a stronghold for militant Islamists; not to mention her health issues.
Unless the GOPe nominates another Dole, McCain, Romney, it is their presidency to lose. But then, won't be surprised if it happens. Jeb Bush is a fore-runner? Please. Every one who wants another Bush, raise your hands.
Our only recourse is to hold the House and take the Senate and create "gridlock", which I love. The less they can screw up our Republic, the happier I am. But then, who knows who could come out of the woodwork and actually be another Ronald Reagan. Obambi came out of nowhere, so can others. Ted Cruz? Not sure he's eligible. The media will make him a non-starter, unlike they did with the Indonesian/Kenyan Obambi and his fake birth certificate.
Stahl (pilot) also stated that a request for his services preparedness for 9/11/2012 was placed one month prior to the terrorist attack, but was refused.
BUSTED! But who has the guts to prosecute each and every one of these traitors and murderers?
Benghazi was a disaster for this administration, were they over confident after setting up the SEALs on the Extortion 17 mission?
Around 9:40 p.m., a few attackers scaled the wall of the diplomatic post and opened the front gate, allowing dozens of armed men in. Local Libyan security guards fled. - http://www.chron.com/news/politics/article/News-Guide-What-Benghazi-means-in-US-politics-5516982.php
SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL:...I neglected to mention from the top that that agent from the top of this incident, or the very beginning of this incident, has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the Embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington.
So what is the "Washington" protocol when a phone call is received?
Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harms way;
Security was run by terrorists!
Today, the Libyan government announced that it had discovered the identity of the terrorist behind the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi  Ahmed Abu Khattala, leader of the Abu Obeida brigade
as July 2011, the media was reporting that Abu Obeida was responsible for all security in Benghazi. On July 31, 2011, the Sunday Telegraph (UK) reported:  it has emerged that the group was in charge of internal security in Benghazi, essentially operating as a secret police force.
That has always amazed me about the racists in our nation. The man is HALF WHITE! They just can't get past that fact and concentrate on his half black status. The epitome of being racist. They don't care about his destructive tendencies, they only care that he looks black.
Interestingly, some mixed couples produce a very white looking offspring while still being half black. Simple genetics and I don't care either way. To me, it's about the "content of their character". I'm sick of this racist crap.
And what was Leon Panetta doing between 3:42pm, when the Benghazi phone call was received in Washington, and the 5pm meeting?
Notice what's in the terrorists mouth:
Hillary Benghazi Clinton 2016
More links between terrorists and security
Where did Mark Basseley Youssef, the You-Tube video guy, get those State Dept. cell phones and how did he get them all the way from California to Libya and into the hands of the spontaneous demonstrators at Benghazi?
So both Obama and Hillary knew all along it was a terrorist attack, and they did nothing - sitting there like two-year-olds with their thumbs up their *sses.
Not only that, they put the kibosh on the nearby rescue team.
People have been convicted of treason for less.
Of course the enemy had State Department cell phones. That’s how they got in touch with Hillary and then Obama. Obama agreed to their terms and surrendered Benghazi.
The terms included that five billion dollars that is “missing” from the state department. Five billion dollars, and no one is screaming. Why?
Hillary and Obama have been blackmailed by the enemy.
Still hasn’t testified UNDER OATH.
What is that?
“What” s/b “Why”
You know what is very likely..?
That the Dept of State or the CIA actually DIRECTLY CALLED THE TERRORIST WHILE they were carrying out the attack..!
They knew instantly, and I’d wager the terrorists would have answered and would have spoken very frankly to the top US operational leadership.
if the T’s had those phones, they would have called out, and likely they would have received calls from the USA, also.
It doesn’t matter. Candy Fat Crowley said Obama called it terrorism and Romney accepted it as fact. That makes it fact.
for later read
Exactly as Freepers have been screaming for 1.5 years.
The pattern I notice with Bengazi is that ANY high-level official is saying nothing and almost ALL of the people being honest and coming clean are the LOW GUYS on the Totem pole.
Kudos to Stahl, but that is very, very discouraging.
I will never have anything to do with anyone who voted for Obama. Even if they admit they made a mistake. If someone is ever stupid enough to vote for someone like obama, they will always be stupid.
In fact, I only get emails and phone calls now from about four people and they all despise Obama and the democrats as much as I do. And when I say democrats, I mean the democrat voters. No one else knows my email address or phone numbers. Man, life is so much more peaceful now than when I was trying to have an intelligent conversation with idiots.
And what will be done? Nothing.
Anyone who would work for these people are just plain stupid. Stevens should have resigned and got on the next plane out of there. But for some reason, lots of people are willing to sacrifice their careers and even their lives for Obama.
Simple. Protocol calls for the president to disappear.
Hillary and Obama helped Al Qaeda overthrow the government of Libya. Hillary and Obama thought that bought them some positive influence with Al Qaeda. I think Al Qaeda took a look around and said, “Where’s all of Qadaffi’s loot?” They looked over at Hillary and Obama and saw the gold dust all over their fingers and decided two could play that game. They hit the Americans in Benghazi and they hit them hard. Hillary and Obama were shocked. They thought they had bought off Al Qaeda by helping them overthrow Qadaffi. Now, Al Qaeda wanted a cut of the loot Hillary and Obama had taken from Qadaffi’s stash.
Yeah. I’d bet there’s no mention, during those calls, about how a youtube video pissed them off.
Benghazi Attack Timeline: How attack on consulate in Benghazi, Libya happened, and the probe afterwards unfolded Nov 5, 2012
9:40 p.m. (3:40 p.m. ET):
Gunfire and an explosion are heard. A TOC agent sees dozens of armed people over security camera flowing through a pedestrian gate at the compound's main entrance. It is not clear how the gate was opened.
The agent hits the alarm and alerts the CIA security team in the nearby annex and the Libyan 17th of February Brigade, one of several powerful militias serving as a de facto security presence in Benghazi. The embassy in Tripoli and the State Dept. command center were also alerted.
State Dept. Diplomatic Security follows events in real time on a listen-only, audio-only feed, according to testimony of Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant director for international programs, given before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Oct 10.
The alarm the TOC agent hit is the Imminent Danger Notification System. When that alert is sent it simultaneously notifies every DoD CentCom on the planet, the WH Situation Room and situation rooms at the State Dept, CIA, DoD, NSA and who knows what other sitrooms in DC. By law the president must be notified of an alert on the IDNS system within 15 minutes. It was triggered less than 20 minutes after the attack had begun.
10:05 p.m. (4:05 p.m. ET):
An alert from the State Department Operations Center is issued to a number of government and intelligence agencies, including the White House Situation Room, the office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the FBI. "US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack" -- "approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM (Chief of Mission/embassy) personnel are in the compound safe haven."
There it is. 25 minutes after the attack had begun the State Dept. and everyone else on the IDNS system were alerted and knew what was happening.
11 p.m. (5 p.m. ET):
Just ahead of the weekly meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey, White House National Security Advisor Tom Donilon tells President Obama of the attack and the fire at the main villa. The president is updated several times throughout the evening.
