Fox News Obtains State Department Email: ‘Benghazi Shelter Under Attack’
Fox News Insider ^ | Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Posted on 10/24/2012 4:14:05 PM PDT by kristinn

Fox News has obtained an additional email sent by the State Department to diplomatic, security and military platforms about an attack on the shelter...

SNIP

The email was sent at 11:57 pm ET on September 11, 2012. The subject line of the email reads “Benghazi Shelter Location Under Attack CBU”

SNIP

“SBU DS Command reports the current shelter location for COM personnel in Benghazi is under attack by mortar fire. There are reports of injuries to COM staff.”

SNIP

Short article. Copy of e-mail and video clip of report at source link.

Fox got one thing wrong. By 11 p.m. EDT the consulate had been evacuated and all personnel except the missing Amb. Stevens had been relocated to the annex in Benghazi.

The e-mail shows the Obama admin knew the staff was under a sophisticated attack and taking casualties. As we know now, Obama did nothing to help them.

This is truly amazing. It also shows that not only did Obama know, but Hillary would have known at that time too. Unless she’s so out of the loop nobody tells her nuttin’...

I bet it’s somebody in the military who is leaking this. They were all gassed up and ready to go, but they needed an order from somebody at the top to move, and that order never came. Obama was either in bed by then or packing for his campaign trip.

Didn’t Obama go to bed knowing that his inaction would result in their deaths?

It does indeed.

As I understand it the last deaths occurred around 10pm ET. This all went down in the afternoon and evening our time.

The mortar attack required pre-attack planning for proper trajectory and logistical considerations. This is the smoking gun...pre-planning was denied by the White House...”there was no evidence of this being a pre-planned attack” paraphrasing the White House position for days following the massacre. The other question is how did the enemy know ahead of time where the “safe house” was located? Could it be leaks from the local security forces the administration hired?

If Fox is reporting it then it can’t be true.

ABC CBS NBC MSNBC CNN BET NYT LAT still claim it was DEFINITELY the video.

Barry The Bold needed his beauty rest so he would be at his best for that important fund raiser the next day. He’s eye candy, you know.

Besides, four Americans don’t make any difference when your policies have already killed hundreds of Mexicans.

In bed. He doesn't do his own packing. Kind of like on D-Day when the Germans wanted to send a reserve panzer division to Normandy but Keitel or somebody didn't want to wake up Der Fuhrer to ask permission.

Ya’ll are probably all correct. He was probably drunk and “packing” in bed and passed out shortly afterward.

Help could have been minutes away. That fact could come out in main stream news (we would think) and really make OB look bad.

I heard that help could have been sent. Aircraft both manned and unmanned.

well then where is our military and all those in the administration who know we’ve got a potus who is under the influence - do none of them have a conscience??? is our much vaunted military and intelligence so corrupt and/or cared that they’re afraid of this skinny communist and his wife???

There is NO good reason for this to have happened. They all hated W - well he wouldn’t have let this happen. I don’t think the NYT’s even cares - not to mention NBC and a bunch of the rest of them. This all just makes me think that even if Romney wins it’s just a finger in the dam - this country has turned into $hit.

I watched Bret Baier, not Shepard.

He had the most recent e-mail during the last segment: “breaking news.”

It seems as though, ever time the WH discounts e-mails, another surfaces, which is leading me to believe we have a patriot mole insider, who’s not going to let this evil Marxist regime get away with their cover-up.

I wrote my senators and congress critters today. Not sure it will do any good, but I was tired of sitting on my hands in outrage.

Letter here:

I am writing to encourage you to insist on investigations into the Benghazi fiasco. It is increasingly apparent that the Obama administration’s handling of this matter may meet the standards for impeachable offenses. Many people are coming to the conclusion that this whole thing was a botched gun running operation to radical Islamists by the Obama Administration. Our country deserves answers and if President Obama has aided and abetted this country’s enemies, we deserve action by our representatives. The time is now to begin your investigations and to seriously consider impeachment should President Obama win a second term. He has thumbed his nose at this country’s laws and constitution time and time again, but this time, Americans have died. We deserves answers to this and Fast and Furious, where other people have died as well. This is not about politics. It is about the rule of law and whether our President will be bound by our laws and constitution or whether he will be allowed to set precedent for gross abuse of power by our executive branch. Kind Regards
