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.
