Uh Oh: CIA in Libya had evidence Benghazi attack carried out by terrorists within 24 hours of attack

Everybody in the administration has been throwing our intelligence under the bus. But now we find out that the CIA knew within 24 hours of the Benghazi attacks on 9/11 that it was not a protest or a mob, but terrorists:

CBS NEWS — U.S. officials tell The Associated Press that the CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington within 24 hours of last month’s deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate that there was evidence it was carried out by militants, not a mob upset about an American-made, anti-Muslim movie.

It is unclear whether anyone outside the CIA saw the cable at that point or how high up in the CIA the information went.

The Obama administration maintained publicly for a week that the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi that killed four Americans was a result of the mobs that staged less-deadly protests across the Muslim world around the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the U.S.

Those administration statements have become highly charged political fodder during the presidential campaign.

One thing I’ve noticed is that no matter who brings up the miscommunication that came out of the Obama administration over these attacks, Obama clearly doesn’t want to talk about it. This the second half of Obama’s interview last night on the Daily show. Skip ahead to 2:50 to hear the discussion on Libya and watch how Obama reacts when Stewart presses him on the miscommunication with respect to Susan Rice. He seems to get a little testy to me, but also notice what he says:

So as soon as they get the information they give it to the American people. Then why didn’t we hear what the State Dept. said? Why didn’t we hear what the CIA in Libya was reporting? NOBODY thought this was a stupid protest over a stupid movie. NOBODY. Yet this president insists that was the intelligence they were getting.

Ugh. I’m so glad we’re only a few weeks away from kicking Obama’s arse out of the White House. It must be done. I just can’t take the lies anymore.

    • Rightstuff1

      This guy is lying and here’s the deal. Stewart may be a liberal but he can smell the BS too. He is smart guy. Look at Obama dropping his eyes when he speaks, he is parsing his words to not trip up over the lies he was woven. Reminds me of a quote from Sir Walter Scott

      Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        Oh, please. You give Stewart too much credit. The nobodies on Univision asked tougher questions than the former comedian.

  • Orangeone

    It would be fun to hear what behaviorists say about O’Bambi always looking down and away, swishing his hands, total lack of eye contact. So 4 dead Americans is not optimal and his reasoning is that gov’t is big and it screws up. Lack of a teleprompter gives us exactly what we need.

      The gesture I am interested in is when he closes his one hand like a fist when he speaks. Very noticeable in the debates. Looks like he is ready to punch someone.

  • Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and stood not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof.
    -John 8:44

    Seems to describe NObama perfectly.

    • StrangernFiction

      It describes a whole lot of ‘rats.

      • Too true! The whole stinkin’ pack of them!

    • sjmom

      Thought of this verse more than once. At this point even if Obama were to tell the truth I probably wouldn’t believe him.

      • Me either. He has no credibility anymore. Like the boy that cried wolf, even if the boy now sees the wolf, nobody will believe him. May the wolf eat well! 😉

        • sjmom

          What really got to me other than the lies was the audience. I used to wonder how people would willingly follow the Anti Christ, but no more. What does it say about those who plan to vote for him? I now understand why Jesus said “Father, forgive them”. People really have no clue what they’re doing. Very sad. They really do need us to pray for them.

          • Hate the sin, love the sinner.

  • He goes on the Daily Show, but he doesn’t hold one single press conference with the Washington Press Corps about any of this? That’s just disgusting. And Stewart could have followed this up with so many questions, but he did not. For example, “Hey, Mr. President, do you actually speak to your Vice President, Joe Biden, who said in his debate with Paul Ryan that you guys didn’t know ANYTHING about a terrorist attack?” But I guess that’s just Joe being Joe, again and again. Obama keeps saying he wants to “Get to the bottom of it,” and yet it has been well over a month and he STILL doesn’t know who gave him the bad intelligence information and why? Give me a break. If that really IS true, then we have bigger problems than the attack on Benghazi. We have an intelligence community that can’t solve a traffic accident, let alone a terrorist attack on one of our consulates.

  • Why doesn’t someone ask him “who told you it was a protest against a video in the first place?” if he wants to keep up the dance that they were piecing it together as intel came in? Then the follow up needs to be “in any case, why were you apologizing for our most sacred constitutional right, the right to free speech?”

  • StrangernFiction

    Pure Evil

  • Also, why in this day and age, do our diplomatic posts around the world not have I/P cameras uploading via satellite link? The state department should have had real time footage available before even briefing the president.

  • Don

    When Obama will go on national television and deceive the American public and the world for personal/political gain, this is an act of incompetence that cannot be denied. Using Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and a multitude of mainstream propaganda machines to propagate that lie just reinforces the corruption that is obvious in the dishonesty in regards to national security. Vote as if your life and the lives of your family depend on it. It does.

  • MrMicawber

    Good Lord, that was embarrassing. Thanks for posting this.

  • sendtheclunkerbacktochicago

    So now we need an explanation from CLAPPER as to why he sent out those Youtube Video talking points which led to the arrest of the man. Unbelievable, Mutt and Jeff can do a better job than CLAPPER, it that news feed is the truth.

    • sjmom

      I wouldn’t trust Clapper as far as I could throw him and I’m not a big woman. He’s the same one who said the Muslim Brotherhood is secular under oath to Congress. Don’t know if he’s incompetent, evil or both but I wouldn’t see any point in asking him anything because we’d never get the truth.

  • “President Obama: the death of the four diplomats wasn’t optimal.”
    WHAT? Do you speak English?
    Wasn’t it a good, just right, adequate number? What should it be? 69?
    16 trillion???
    We know it will grow on your watch

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    The BS is hard to listen to. After Romney moves into the WH, we’re going to find out who exactly it was who told someone to scour YouTube to find some kind of inflammatory video to blame this on. It’s like the elephant in the room…. everyone wants to know WHERE the information about the video came from. When each person is asked, they pass the buck to someone else, like Hillary did when she was asked.

    They count on the American people being really, really stupid, and as evidenced by the video Scoop posted on another thread about Obama supporters who never heard of Benghazi, this is their only hope. The problem is, they cannot get their BS past the smart people who ARE paying attention, and they’re spinning themselves into a web of lies trying.

    • sjmom

      Agreed. We won’t get the truth of this until Obama is gone. Less than 100 days!

  • Amjean

    Did they tell him? Don’t even go there, giving him room to maneuver
    his cover. Of course, he was told. He is the president (hopefully, not for long)
    and one of our ambassadors was murdered. It would be standard protocol.

    All the Obama administration is doing is fumbling around making excuses and throwing the state and intelligence communities under the bus. The media and Obama have thrown
    up a smokescreen and have us focusing on when he said “terror” or “terrorist attack”.

    Common sense would dictate that our government should put additional security at any US facility in the middle east on the anniversary of 9.11, in particular
    when intelligence reports even from other countries suggested there would be violence.
    The question is, “Why didn’t he?” Obama should have directed this missive himself.
    At the very least there should be communication backing this up between the intelligence,
    state and executive branch.

    Ed Klein, author of “The Amateur” states that emails and cables will show that Hillary
    Clinton requested extra security. Can’t wait for those to be leaked out.

    Don’t underestimate Bill and Hillary. They will not let their political mini dynasty be
    destroyed by this bozo.

  • At end of the day if NObama had been doing his job, there would have been adequate security in place and the Ambassador and 3 other Americans would NOT be dead today!

    He can dance around it all he likes, and throw State/Intelligence/Rice/Clinton whoever under the bus. The media can make all the smokescreens it likes, but the truth is still apparent. NObama lied… People died! Impeach this traitor and all the rest of his “gang.”

  • Obama as our President is just not optimal.

  • anneinarkansas

    Where is General Petraus? MIA

    • WordsFailMe

      These Obama soldier sycophants, Patreus, Dempsey and the others who foster the “rules of engagement,”, need to be retired and put out of the loop.

      I don’t know if you actually are a traitor when you behave like one but that’s close enough for me

  • sara holy land

    I cannot hear him !
    He knows what is “truth” ?????????

  • sjmom

    So, they have laid everything out for the American people???????? Obama is an arrogant liar and has no qualms about continuing in these lies. Not one bit of remorse either for the 4 Americans who were killed. Can’t write anymore without violating my own conscience.

  • WordsFailMe

    The tragedy of Obama is becoming nearly Shakespearean. The man is losing his position is the most powerful man on earth and he’s appearing on comedy shows. Is the crushed and be-jeweled Michelle back at the White House castle keep, scrubbing imaginary blood off her hands and talking to herself?


    The queen, my lord, is dead.


    She should have died hereafter;
    There would have been a time for such a word.
    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
    To the last syllable of recorded time,
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more: it is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Yeah… he’s ticked and he so seems like he’s hiding something.

    So John Stewart and Joy Behar – both head cheerleaders for this rat – are lied to by this clown. The knuckleheads who clap for him and still think he’s dreamy really are not paying attention or they’re too ignorant to vote.

  • Susitna

    This is the kind of audience Obama loves. He just says something stupid and gets an applause. He has always time for shows like this where he can feel like the smartest guy in the room. The mistake of his campaign is that they have focused only on people that aren’t well informed or that like to watch sketchy shows with no brain stimulation.
    People like Stewart are making LOTS OF MONEY with this group of interest and they are aware of that. Nevertheless to fill the pockets with money is more appealing to many show hosts and pundits than defending the Country. They are just above everything and everybody.
    I couldn’t believe that Obama said that when 4 Americans get killed it is not optimal. It reminded me again his other comment when he said that the assassinations were a bump in the road. I just wonder what he says behind doors……I guess that he is pissed off that these heroes were murdered before Election Day….
    What else do we need to hear? On the next debate I would just love to listen to Romney while Obama’s mouth gets duck taped. I believe that we have heard enough lies and that he has also insulted the American Nation more than enough.

  • kong1967

    Of course. Obama just keeps digging the hole deeper and deeper. Romney is going to kill him (figuratively) in the next debate about foreign policy. Obama is going to keep repeating Bin Laden and the drone strikes. Well, and the supposed freedom of oppressed people in Egypt and Libya. Very easy for Romney to hit out of the park. Obama is going to look like an even bigger @ss thant the first debate.

    Goodbye you Marxist jerk.

    • WordsFailMe

      It’s hard to believe that the last debate will be about US foreign policy. This phony front man for the Communist Party has already demonstrated that he is unable to maintain a single train of thought. now having been hoisted on his own petard by his handling of Benghazi, he is going to try to defend, or even explain what his policy is.

      The communist who have been actually destroying the country’s fabric, Holder, Pelosi, Reid, Sebelius, Bernancke, the socialist rats in the EPA and Janet “The Hut” Napolio-tano are stealing us blind and hiding the evidence.

      In Romney’s victory speech. 10:30 pm EST, he should plainly and openly threaten every Federal employee and appointee with expulsion and prosecution for corruption should they take any actions detrimental to the United States in the lame duck period.

      If I were Mitt, I’d meet with loyal members of the FBI, Secret Service, Justice Department and the Military the next day to set up reporting (SPY) networks and audit teams.

      From where I sit, it looks like Soros is ready to throw the Obamerrhoid under the bus, take his losses and re-group for another assault in a few years. I’ll bet George Soros wishes he’d stayed with Hillary now.

      • p m

        With any luck Soros will be making an early appearance in the great socialist cabal in the sky…love the idea about warning the acolytes against malfeasance during the lame duck period, which continues to scare the heck out of me.

      • kong1967

        I think Obama’s going to sign the U.N. gun ban treaty after he loses the election. Then it won’t be blocked by the Senate and it will be binding. People will get pi**ed at Romney for not upending it, but I don’t know that he can once it becomes binding….unless he just ignores it.

        I think Soros would be right that he chose the wrong candidate. I will be so greatful when he takes his toys and goes to hell. He is a larger threat to the world than any one individual ever was. He has brought down economies elsewhere, seemingly just for fun (while he gets rich off of it).

        • WordsFailMe

          Wow kong! Great stuff

          • kong1967

            Lol, thanks, but I lifted the U.N. treaty scenario from Dick Morris (I believe it was). It sounds very plausible to me and right down Obama’s alley of tricks.

  • GuessWhoFan

    There is NO WAY the President of the United States was not made aware of this immediately. NO WAY.

  • Plausible deniability! is the presidents motto! Lie, Lie, Lie!…

  • WordsFailMe

    Both this slimy pretend man and the, weakest and most dis-credited and reviled woman on the planet, Hillary Clinton,, both of them, say that the solution to this problem is:

    “Find out what went wrong and fix it so it doesn’t happen again.” To me this sounds like sending your mama to fix Afghanistan.

    Didn’t we learn under Thomas Jefferson that you have to provide protection for your embassies? Hasn’t that lesson been repeated hundreds of times? Which moron didn’t get the memo? What is it about the pathetic, limp-wristed weak liberal mind that refuses to accept the world as it is? And how can we be rid of them, once and for all?

    How about getting even? How about teaching these bastard Muslim scum a lesson? How about taking 40 Muslims out, 10 to one, and hanging their rotting corpses on the fence around the Gitmo soccer field?

    Are liberals so weak and stupid and so devoid of human dignity that they would allow someone to come into their house, murder four family members and the next day, hire a new locksmith?

    This is liberal thinking. This is the bull**** Black Panthers offering a million dollar reward for Zimmerman. This is the burning down of black neighborhoods by the inhabitants following the failure to convict 4 police officers of whipping the ass of a drunk driving, drug user and the subsequent rebuilding by taxpayers.

    We will never be rid of this kind of moral weakness and blindness as long as one liberal inhales and lies and excuses itself with every exhalation.

    It’s inconceivable that zero and clinton did not have this information when the CIA did. Lie all you like, it’s just not on.

    The CIA is coming out with more every day – so glad Romney kept his powder dry at the debate regarding Libya. Smart move despite the appearance of having missed an opportunity. He is for sure getting back-channel info from the intelligence services as well as daily briefings now, and the foreign policy debate will see the fireworks set off. (Lame Cherry has an interesting take on what went on in Libya with the CIA.)

    • WordsFailMe

      The CIA already has experienced being bum-fuddled by a Clinton and various yellow Democrats in the 90’s. Now Obama and Hillary are trying to perform a little loin surgery on the agents again.

      Let’s hope some CIA guy finds a way to exact payback too.

  • Nukeman60

    What I have always tried to do is to make sure that we get all the facts, figure out what went wrong, [check all the polls first], and make sure it doesn’t happen again‘ – Obama

    How exactly does one track down a spontaneous mob to bring them to justice? I believe he’s right, though. It had to be the result of the video. Let’s face it, the video came out in July, they put it on a slow boat to Libya, it was shipped to Benghazi on camelback and eventually arrived there on Sept 11, just in time for the spontaneous protest. What could be clearer?

    • WordsFailMe

      Not that I think about it, I’d say the only option Barack, the Brave, has here is to carpet bomb Benghazi.

      Wonder if the President Pimp will drop own carpet/prayer rug?

      • Nukeman60

        I wish we could carpet bomb Washington. It would improve our overall situation almost immediately.

    • Marky_D

  • colliemum

    Interesting, isn’t it, that Gen. Petraeus allegedly also blamed the video in a non-public hearing, and is now totally absent from the debate, as is the official CIA.

  • MaroonRepublic

    Still lying about this. Incredible.

  • Conservator1

    The only thing that’s not optimal is the administration’s Benghazi-gate cover-up. On September 25, in his address to the U.N. General Assembly, Obama didn’t refer to the Benghazi attack as an act of terrorism, but he did make 6 references to the YouTube video – unbelievable but true.

  • Galatiansch2vs20

    Here Secretary Clinton says it like it was (statement made 9/12/2012) by saying:
    “Heavily armed militants…”:

    Here’s an excerpt from :http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/09/14/Colonel-Says-Hillary-Clinton-Made-Decision-to-Have-No-Marines-at-Benghazi

    ‘According to Hunt, the debacle at the American mission in Benghazi is directly the result of Obama’s new policies. “The policy of the Obama administration led to this,” he said.

    “It was the policy of the Obama administration to have a low profile in Libya. That’s why the rules of engagement were approved by the Secretary of State to have no Marines at Benghazi, and to have an American contractor hire Libyan nationals to provide security there. The rules were they couldn’t have ammunition.”

    “Obama may not have known the details of the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, but his Chief of Staff and National Security Advisor would have. The Secretary of State absolutely would have.”‘

    And here Secretary Clinton plants a seed about the video:

    “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.”

    This just confirms that the corrupt obama administration has been engaging in a cover-up. No surprise there, but surely something can and should be done about it. Once again the obama administration is caught in a lie. Enough is enough. If we had an honest justice department we could get them involved, but that place is full of obama’s handpicked minions.

  • Marky_D

    No no… because don’t you see, Obama went out into the rose garden and said something about terror – so clearly he was announcing to the US public exactly what had happened – Islamic nutjobs had murdered an ambassador and a number of other US citizens for the crime of being citizens of the great satan. The fact that he and every other member of his staff when questioned always referred to some crappy YouTube video and never again mentioned the words ”islam” ”terrorism” or ”militants” is neither here nor there. Nothing to see here, move along and don’t forget to vote Obama for hopechange and an Obamaphone!
