Obama Was Briefed on Benghazi Terrorism Connection Days Before Susan Rice's Public Denials
She advanced three core assertions (LIES) for public consumption:
(1) The the violence had spilled over from "spontaneous" protests over an internet video. (There were no protests outside of the Benghazi consulate leading up to the attack).
(2) The US government "had no information" indicating that the assault was "pre-meditated or preplanned. (There were, in fact, many signs pointing to that conclusion, even before the raid began).
(3) Our security presence at our diplomatic mission in Benghazi was "substantial." (The fact that the consulate was sacked -- and four Americans, including a sitting ambassador, were murdered in the process -- is clear evidence that our security measures was unforgivably and demonstrably insubstantial. To try to say otherwise is outright insulting. To say nothing of the various subsequent revelations that Amb. Stevens and his team begged for more security on numerous occasions, but were denied. The State Department actually reduced its American security presence in the country; this, in spite of glaring warning signs that our interests were far from protected.
Obama's primary defense of Rice was..“As I said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her,” (BY TOTUS DESIGNATED BRIEFING TEAM LIARS)
.."go after" him, and lay off Rice. BIG, STRONG TOUGH GUY that he is..
President Obama was personally and specifically briefed within three days that the massacre was an organized jihadist operation:
U.S. intelligence told President Barack Obama and senior administration officials within 72 hours of the Benghazi tragedy that the attack was likely carried out by local militia and other armed extremists sympathetic to al-Qaida in the region
In a blockbuster report.., John Solomon, the former Associated Press and Post reporter,
Most of the details affirming al-Qaida links were edited or excluded (LIKELY AT DIRECTION OF OBAMA'S WH CAMPAIGN TEAM) from the unclassified talking points used by Rice in appearances on news programs the weekend after the attack, officials confirmed Friday. Multiple agencies were involved in excising information..
Graham: Obama Knew of Benghazi Threat, Acted 'After Everybody Was Dead'
President Barack Obama was aware of two IED attacks on the Benghazi consulate in Libya in the months leading up the the Sept. 11 attack that killed U. S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham claims.
The South Carolina Republican said James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, told him the president was informed of attacks in April and June, Fox News reports.
The June attack blew a hole in the perimeter wall of the Benghazi compound, and the two strikes were reportedly part of dozens of incidents in the region that are considered warning signs of the deadly attacks in September.
Graham criticized Obama for a White House statement saying the president did not talk to Libya's leader until the evening of Sept. 12, a day after the embassy was attacked.
“(He talked) after everybody was dead,” said Graham, suggesting Obama could have made a difference if he'd been involved earlier, but “you got a commander in chief who is absolutely disengaged. You got the secretary of State never talking to the secretary of Defense."
Graham's disclosure came after several Capitol Hill hearings in which several top administration officials, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed they were not aware of the security problems at the Libyan compound.
Clinton said she never saw an Aug. 16 State Department cable warning that the consulate could not sustain a coordinated attack, but outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said they knew about the warning.
A DNI spokesman said the Obama administration has been cooperative with Congress over the Libya questions. However, White House counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan, during his confirmation hearings for CIA director, said much of the information about what Obama knew falls under the category of “executive privilege,” a status often used to avoid disclosing information.
On Thursday, Republicans united to stall Obama's nomination of Chuck Hagel to succeed Panetta, especially over outstanding questions on the Benghazi attack.
Speaking of "truth and facts," where are those "dozens of counties" in Ohio that you claimed went 100% for Obama? It's been more than a week now and we are still waiting.
Well, now I have a blockbuster update:
Cumgobbler knew as early as the night of the election that his claims were untrue, but this information was edited or excluded (LIKELY AT THE DIRECTION OF CUMGOBBLER'S DIAPER TEAM) from the unclassified talking points used by Cumgobbler on the MO board, officials confirmed Friday. Multiple Depends were involved in excising information (mostly to smear feces to cover the key data).
I smell a scandal! (Or maybe that's just Cumgobbler's diapers).
In a blockbuster report, John Solomon, the former Associated Press and Post reporter, has ferreted out the president’s daily brief that informed him within 72 hours of the Sept. 11 attack that the Benghazi attack was a jihadist operation.
Citing officials directly familiar with the information, Solomon writes in the Washington Guardian that Obama and other administration officials were told that “that the attack was likely carried out by local militia and other armed extremists sympathetic to al-Qaida in the region.”
The details from the CIA and Pentagon assessments of the killing of Ambassador Chris [Stevens] were far more specific, more detailed and more current than the unclassified talking points that UN Ambassador Susan Rice and other officials used five days after the attack to suggest to Americans that an unruly mob angry over an anti-Islamic video was to blame, officials said.
