REPORT: State Department had credible information 48 hours before consulate attacks

This is a potential blockbuster given that our ambassador and his three staffers, 2 of which were former Navy SEALs, were all murdered. Drudge has the siren up for this and is headlining it as “America ‘was warned of embassy attack but did nothing”.

It’s just one paragraph in a piece from The Independent called “Revealed: inside story of US envoy’s assassination”:

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.

I blame Romney for criticizing the president.

    impeachment proceedings should start tonight…


      • FreeManWalking

        I would rather we keep the focus on defeating him at the ballot box.

        Then bring up any charges they care to after he is out of office.

        • Exactly. By the time the impeachment proceedings would get underway, it would be well into 2013. I personally cannot wait that long. Sore-eee.

          • Kelly60

            I don’t even see them bringing charges. If Romney wins then they’ll just say “leave well enough alone, he’s out now”

            • you may be right. i have some doubts about the future of the gun walking scandal as well.

        • Spartan1975

          How many more blood and treason on the Obama administration will be enough for him to be impeached!
          I understand that it would be better to win fairly in the elections but the PRAVDA will call all who do not agree with Maobama racist etc either way….!!
          We have many facts against him and his administration but nothing is done…they are working with our enemies, they have the muslim brotherhood in the administration, the military is having their hands tied by insane rules of engagement that have our soldiers killed, fast and furious and now he ignores danger from our intelligence. When is enough….
          I would tend to agree that we should wait for the elections, however we cannot even be sure that he will not find a way to void the results so if why wait!

          • FreeManWalking

            forgetaboutit Hairy Reed will never bring it for a vote.

        • Conservative_Hippie

          I want both doggoneit!

          • FreeManWalking

            I’m gonna want in one hand and vote with the other.

    • conservative58

      But instead…. ‘Obama pulling away from Romney in polls…’

      If Republicans tried to impeach Obama, they would just be accused of being racists and that would become the focal point for the LSM.

      I’ll bet the LSM will continue to give Obama a pass on his total incompetence in dealing with this situation, in spite of all the blood on his hands.

      How in the H*LL can Americans continue to support this man? This country will never be safe as long as this administration is in charge.

      • NanNJ

        I don’t get it either. The highs and low of these next weeks are going to kill me.

        • conservative58

          I know!

          I feel such outrage for:
          a. Obama and administration
          b. Lame Stream Media
          c. Stupid Americans supporting (a. and b.)
          d. ALL OF THE ABOVE!

      • hbnolikeee

        Don’t be discouraged by the polls. Numbers and statistics can be cooked (aka our unemployment rate). The worse you think it is the stronger you and everyone you can get to hear you must become.

      • FreeManWalking

        This will have legs, it is a world event. Even 0b0’s MSM PACs can’t make it go away and more and more will come out showing the ineptness or hopefully as I suspect showing the administration is willingly negligent, derelict in their duty.

        edit: If nothing else, ROMNEY should keep pressing on this for the next 52 days, 23 hours and 5 minutes.

      • I don’t put my faith in polls and focus groups. They are a small slice of public sentiment that is more often than not, skewed. El Presidente is in serious trouble. His handlers know it, people in his campaign know it, and for sure the MSM knows it.

    • This is a black and white representation of me looking surprised to learn this:

      Of course, I’m much younger-looking. By the way, the pic is that of famed Hollyweird director John Huston.

  • odin147

    No worries this will get brushed under the carpet too, and btw Romney did it.

    • LOL…yep.

    • hbnolikeee

      hey wait a second it’s Bush’s fault.

  • Howzah123

    They knew this when they apologized and let that stand for more than 9 hours

    Did the MSM sit on this when they were going after Romney? Who’s asking these questions? When did ABC/NBC/NPR/AP know this? They are getting scooped all over the place.

    Obama knew this when he said “Romney shot from the hip”

    Calls need to start coming for Obama’s resignation from Congress

    Our Ambassador was raped before he was murdered as our flags are being burned and jihad flags being raised in their place.

    • detectivedick

      The Presstitutes are more interested in Travon

  • Hilary wants asked, What did he know and when did he know it? It’s time to ask her that same question.

  • They needed this to cripple and remove our presence from the middle east. A big F.U. to America as they may not win the next election and are apparently in a rush to cause as much damage as possible. IMO-

  • 4Hoppes2

    Just heard Mark Levin talking about the security breach, DOJ investigating Mark Owens for leaks while embassy’s have unarmed Marines and Romney speaks out of turn. The only secrets this administration keeps is when our embassy’s are about to be overrun.

  • p m

    Incredible rant by Mark levin just now on this report – RS will likely put it up for all to hear 🙂

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    so who will hold clinton, and barry responsible for this??? did barry even go to a security meeting this month? wtf all he does is campaign. sensitive paperwork was stolen from the embassy. people who have helped the US their identities revealed. Stevens was dragged through the streets we seen the pics. and clinton has the nerve to say , they were taking him to the hospital to help him. treasonous she and barry are. where are the gop ?? why are they not demanding answers

    • joyfulgiver

      The way I see it, Barry should be outed immediately and we now are guaranteed Hillary will NOT be running for president in 2016.

      As I heard it, O has been too busy to go to his daily security briefings, not that anything would have been handled any differently had he been there. This too, is “above his paygrade.”

      • anyonebutbarry2012

        correct, but NO ONE is calling him out on this at all. where is congress??? they have the same blood on their hands if they do not demand answers, resignations. thought F&F was the worse this admin would do, now this, totally avoidable., where is clinton? we deserve answers. enough of this bs.

        • Crickets. So far, the Repubs in Congress have let him run roughshod all over them. Where are the Tea Party Repubs? At least they can express outrage on alternative media outlets…they shouldn’t even bother with the MSM. Fox News maybe, but not the MSM.

  • p m

    And BTW The Independent isn’t a conservative paper by any means, but neither is it without pretty high standards for its reporting.

  • WHAT THE FRICKING HECK IS GOING ON!! I mean can this get anymore embarrassing and sickening!! This is a ABSOLUTE OUTRAGE!! Those people were sitting ducks in an evil pond with just locks on the door! I have had it!! There better be some action IMMEDIATELY taken on this issue! We have Americans being sacrificed while this PATHETIC LITTLE MAN campaigns all over the US in his Capitalist Plane paid for by TAXPAYING CAPITALISTS while he promotes his Marxism all over the world! INSANITY!!!

  • PVG

    GOD HELP US!!!

  • Romney is a LEADER we need him as POTUS right NOW.The Pretending POTUS Barry ‘obama’Soetoro released a STATEMENT AGAINST the AMERICAN RIGHT of FREE SPEECH& he sided with EXTREME MUSLIM RADICALS.BHO’S INCOMPETENCE is GLARINGLY a contrast 2 Romney’s STATEMENT which was APPROPRIATE &. PROVED his ABILITY 2 LEAD us during a crisis.
    Congress EXPOSE Barry ‘Obama’ 4the Identity Fraud& Drone MURDERING FOOL he is.He is swimming &barely above DROWNING in the current FOREIGN policy DIBACLE.
    Barry’s chickens are coming home 2 roost. November 6th can NOT come soon enough.

  • FreeManWalking

    The Carter administration was inept, incompetent handling the 1979 Iran Hostage Crisis.

    obo actions appear to be inept and he has his MSM PACs covering for him, but I can’t help but believe he is actually executing his transformational plan to change the USA from a Strong World Leadership roll to a weak third world entity.

    I bet the only problem he has with these attacks is the the timing.

    • El Presidente makes Carter look like Reagan. Gee, I hated to type that.

      • FreeManWalking

        Take it back Chris, take it back…

        • How do I edit my comments? Doggone…now where’s my delete button…shoot. This is embarrassing. Instead of Reagan, how about Clinton? 😀

  • I heard the Ambassador was raped before he was killed…I thought Islamists did not believe in MAN TO MAN ACTIVITY??? I guess only as a precursor to MURDER!! That man’s poor family…what a horrible way to die in the service of our Country! I am just disgusted….AND CLAM IT WITH THE RELIGION OF PEACE!!

    • Yes! I guess it’s okay, unless you portray their dear prophet Muhammad as a murdering, rapist pedophile.

  • 4Hoppes2

    TRS, I love your sarcasm,”I blame Romney for criticizing the president.” Finally an entity to blame besides man-made global warming.

  • I would love to feel that this matters but reading all the crappy polls lately the stupidity of our fellow Americans knows no bounds.
    This is not Romney’s fault or conservative’s fault but a malaise of utter disconnect from reality within the American people. All this matters to thinking people but we must accept that thinking people are a huge minority in today’s America.

    • StrangernFiction

      We are past the tipping point.

      • I guess November will tell for sure but from all the blank stares you get from people when you talk about important issues we may just have

    • conservative58

      They’re more concerned with making sure we taxpayers pay for their birth control.
      Makes me want to SCREAM!!!!

    • keyesforpres

      Do NOT believe the lefty polls…remember, Reagan was way behind Carter and Mondale in the polls….they are lying in the hopes Conservatives stay home. Don’t give up.

      • I will never give up or give in , but Rassmussen is not leftist he is dead honest. Conservatives will never stay at home but we may well be outnumbered .

        • KenInMontana

          Polls only sample 1000 people in targeted demographics and regions, they cannot be relied upon for accurate information. Their only purpose is to convince the “other side” to give up.

    • The enticement of “free” money and health care on the so-called “rich” taxpayer’s dime and not having to work while sprawled out on the couch in a modestly decorated condo living room, munching on a bag full of Cheetos paid for with food stamps, watching American Idol provided by DirecTV, texting on an iPhone 5, making Facebook friends, and tweeting how many Facebook friends have been accumulated is just fine by them. Why vote for somebody who will get rid of that for them?

      • Exactly , also the dumbing down of our kids in public schools plays a huge role

        • Thank you for mentioning that.

  • The House needs to immediately commission a special investigation board, under the House Committee on Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. Anyone found to have had knowledge of this, and failed to take appropriate action should be brought back to the US (if abroad) in chains to face criminal charges like negligent homicide. Several counts.

  • LdyDesign

    Hey Hillary, Is it that vast right wing conspiracy again? Yet another Clinton scandal. Hillary probably thought this job would propel her to the Presidency. I bet the regime is cursing the new media about now.

  • Mary_Linda

    Let’s do some math:

    They knew in advance of something cooking.
    They made sure the marines could not load ammunition.

    Could it be – THE REGIME WAS IN ON IT !!??

    • keyesforpres

      I think so. The State Dept. did not allow those marines to have ammo. How many muslims are in the State Dept? It wouldn’t surprise me if O was in on it.

    • That’s crazy talk! We right-wingers are a bunch of looney, reactionary conspiracy theorist tin foil hat types. El Presidente and Hill bear zero responsibility and deserve zero blame for the action or rather, inaction in Libya. Yeah, right! There may even be some members of Congress who need to be questioned about this as well. How far down the rabbit hole will this one go?

  • justplainbob

    Oh wonderful…Eric Holder is going to be heading up an investigation according to Reuters…

    • conservative58

      Well, thank goodness!!! I’m sure he’ll get right to the bottom of it!
      Just like he did with Fast and Furious!

      Holder should have been fired months ago!

    • Oh golly, now there’s some good news.

  • Watchman74

    This should infuriate the American people for so many reasons. Failing to act on a credible warning. Not equipping our men with ammo to adequately defend themselves. Apologing to the very same people that killed OUR people. Zero emotion from Obama. What a disaster of a president!

  • Spartan4Palin

    I suspect that breach was allowed because Morsi had just taken over the military when a islamic group had stationed themselves on the border with Israel and Egyptian military were killed. It turned out that Israel knew about it and reported it to Egyptian authorities. When the public heard about it, pressure was placed on Morsi. He saw this as his way of taking over the military who still had authority over the government. Now we are here at this moment. And some are asking why did Egyptian forces melt away? Morsi ordered them to. It was an Aug 12 article on Debka!

  • Kelly60

    Yeppers, and the info came from Israel…betcha didn’t know that huh?

  • DocBarry1

    Obama and Hillary have a lot to answer

    • They’re forwarding their phones as we type.

      • Spartan4Palin

        And listing who will get the ‘speed bump’ notification informing those that will be under a bus!

      • DocBarry1

        R U KIDDING – they are going keep the focus on attacking Romney and Palin
        The LSM will not ask what did you know, when did you receive the notice of attacks, why were we not on high alert around 9/11 etc. so many questions that need to be thoroughly asked and answered but don’t hold your breath expecting journalistic integrity from THE LSM….
        Life is a song – sing it.
        Life is a game – play it.
        Life is a challenge – meet it.

        • That’s where sites such as this one, independent citizen journalists, talk radio, and at times Fox News comes in.

          • DocBarry1

            Thanks Chris – agreed – but very sad

  • How do I put this on my Facebook wall instead of my timeline?

  • Watcherinla

    It’s one thing to be in over your head but it’s quite another that people are losing their lives because of gross incompetance and neglect. Who is running the White House?? Valerie Jarrett?? Axlerod, David Letterman??? Certainly not the campaigner in chief who has more important things to attend to than the business of the nation. Two days notice and no one places a phone call or sends an email and now people are dead. If Obama had any shred of dignity and responsibility, he would resign tonight. I know, we’ll never see that happen and like many of the commenters on the site have said, the pressitudes will protect his sorry a**.

  • toongoon

    Who is one of Hillary’s top adviser? Huma Abedin, there was no vetting done on this woman. Her entire family has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

    The reputation of Michelle Bachmann is being destroyed over this woman, she is involved with the Muslim Brotherhood and is a top adviser to Hillary Clinton. The state department which Hillary controls refused to allow the guards at the embassy to carry ammunition.

    • anyonebutbarry2012

      there all in cahoots together, this whole administration is corrupt. why is no one calling for a investigation?? people need to be held accountable for this. sick of everyone covering up for barry and his evilness.

      • Didn’t you hear? Gunwalker Holder will be doing the investigating. So much for honest, impartial investigation.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    The obama administration has American blood on its hands and now it can’t conveniently wash it off. All those involved that could have warned the embassies and failed to do so should be punished; they could have possibly saved American lives, but for whatever reason failed to act. Disgusting and shameful. A genuine tragedy for four Americans who died serving their country, but should still be alive today had the administration done its job.

  • shane2813

    MARXIST=DEMOCRATS=TERRORIST All the same. You guys get this yet???

  • petekent01

    Obama’s denials will be accepted and the press will move on to some new trumped up issue with Romney.

    @petekent01 on Twitter

  • Well, well, well. Who’s that foreign policy expert again?

  • I think we should place explosives hidden in the walls of our Egyptian embassy. Then evacuate our embassy. Then wait until thousands of Islamists pour into the embassy and – BAM. Do the same in Yemen.

  • tvlgds

    Sounds like the Klintonista era.

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    You know, with as coordinated as these events are seeming to have been based on the most accurate info available, I thought yesterday that it was hard to believe our intelligence services had no information on either of them. You don’t wanna say anything often times for fear of being branded a conspiracist, but 400 Islamics all showing up and you mean to tell me no one knew anything in advance? I’ll wait to see what info actually comes to light — all the mention I can find online tonight is very tight-lipped — but I’ll not be surprised to learn that someone somewhere on our side knew something; and I won’t be surprised to learn that it was someone in the State Department.

  • lcn1114

    can Hillary just go away… she’s done enough damage. There she yesterday ranting about the video again. Get with the program Hillary it’s not the video, it’s the deep seeded hatred. Demoncrats cannot EVER be elcted into high office again. Especially a Clinton.

  • MiketheMarine

    At some point a house will fall out of the sky and crush the wicked witch, then Sarah Palin will finally have the ruby slippers. And who voted to put the flying monkey in the white house?
