Day after Libya attack,
CIA found militant links

Associated Press, by Kimberly Dozier

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/19/2012 8:50:50 AM

WASHINGTON — 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 spontaneous mob upset about an American-made video ridiculing Islam's Prophet Muhammad, U.S. officials have told The Associated Press. It is unclear who, if anyone, saw the cable outside the CIA at that point and how high up in the agency the information went. The Obama administration maintained publicly for a week that the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi that killed U.S.

Comments:
It looks like they didn't want to take the fall for 0bama. It gets worse every day for the pathological liar.

Let me be clear, CIA, Dept of State and all other intel agencies fall under the executive branch which means Obama is responsible.

All of this has happened under 0bama's watch. Yes, he is fully responsible and he can't spin his way out of it.

The CIA and the Intel community will not go quietly under the bus. These people play chess several moves ahead. Barky's people can't even remember the lies they told yesterday.

Mitt will win this election because of the millions of voters who feel the need of a hot, soapy shower after having slept with these despicable low-life hoes.

The Benghazi Bullshirter is on the ropes with this one. The knee-pad media can only cover up so much then even they are outta here and the CIA is not about to fall on a sword because of this short attention span, disinterested, golfing, vacationing, partying poseur that missed too many security briefings!

0bama and Hillary are such frauds. A day after the Terrorist Attack, the CIA found militant links. Yet, when Hillary sent in a team to investigate, she sent the FBI who did not get to Benghazi until three weeks later, as the FBI did not feel it safe enough to enter the city and investigate. It made me puke when 0bama at the last debate puffed out his chest and loudly proclaimed, "We will find the people who did this, and we will punish them." Who does he think he is kidding, it is weeks and weeks later, and if he did nothing in the first week, why would any person believe him?

Reagan was responsible for Iran Contra. W was responsible for Yellow Cake, WMDs and what not. But Zippy is a leftist. There are different rules that we saw on vivid and ugly display on Tuesday night. The question the MSM is asking is "What did Romney know and when did he know it"? Voting on Nov 6 is the only answer if you want your country back.

AP article is written to imply that we determined it was a terrorist attack AFTER the fact rather than as the culmination of terrorists attacks against US and British missions. Benghazi has been a recruiting center for jihadists fighters in Iraq for 6 to 8 years. The armed overthrow of Qaddafi began in Benghazi. There were enough terror attacks preceding 9/11/12 to frighten Ambassador Stevens about traveling to the city. Finally, the US security detachment withdrawn in August wanted to remain on site for fear of future attacks. The 4 deaths were the result of Obama's policies in Libya and BO's failure to protect US citizens sent there.

AP's Kim Dozier is drinking the Candi Crowley prepared Obama-Aid.

They keep trying to make it OK that Obama wasn't given the information. Isn't he the Commander in Chief? Why would this info not be given to the President? Makes no sense. Plausible deniability doesn't work in matters of national defense.

I think the Obama administration likes all this bickering over the timeline because it distracts from the real issue which is the rise of alQueda on his watch.

I think who-said-what-when is a losing argument for a debate. Romney should just firmly state that the administration was giving conflicting statements about what we all agree now was a pre-planned 9/11 terroist attack by an alQueda organization. Go on to point out that Obama added to the confusion by never clearly addressing the questions with a press conference. Instead he continued campaigning and had interviews with Letterman and Univision. A president should speak directly to the American people in a clear manner.

Then Romney should talk about how alQueda is not on its heals as the president tells us but is regrouping and growing. Then if he connects that to Obama's failed policies, it will be a knock out punch.

The phony unemployment numbers are too little and too late. Most folks are seeing through the fraud.

The racism and blaming Bush ploys are past their sell-by dates and are starting to stink.

Oblamer has now dissed the intelligence community, and they are responding by letting info like this out. It is so bad that the obamedia whores can no longer ignore it.

The polls are shifting because the polling commpanies know they had better start sampling and reporting more accurately or their future business opportunities will diminish.

obumbler has done poorly in the debates, and people are seeing a Romney outside of the distortion of the media and obumbler campaign propaganda and discovering that he really isn't a horned devil after all.

Even "news"papers in big cities that almost always endorse the "D" candidate are turning on him.

All of the little holes in the dike are getting bigger, and pretty soon the whole thing will give way. Buh-bye, and good riddence!

What utter nonsense

There would be no "Benghazi Attack" to spin if ...

There were armed Marines guarding US territory and US citizens in a war zone that the Obama Administration recently created by funding Jihadists, Al-Queda and G-d knows who else.

This is all spin to distract from the bone-deep truth - THERE WERE NO MARINES IN AN ISLAMIC COUNTRY FULL OF JIHADISTS

Washington has become infested with zombie careers over Benghazi. CIA, State, the military, everywhere you look, dead careers walking. They just don't know it yet and haven't fallen down. They keep staggering forward, glassy-eyed, repeating the same mindless lies. Mitt and his zombie blasters are going to be busy for months cleaning them all out.

First thought... Obama does not govern. He gives speeches. He plays golf. He parties. He can't be bothered. To find out what happened here you need to drill down through his administration or czars until you find a decision maker. I think we'd be surprised to learn how far down the totem pole it goes.

Oh, and here's one. Ask yourself: if you were THE head of the Marines, would you allow a SINGLE ONE of your men to be deployed anywhere in the middle east as a guard without ammunition in his weapon? Even if State demanded it? Both the Secratary of State and the President should wet themselves with dread at the mere thought of the response they would receive for even suggesting that you give that order.

Poster #18 is correct. Romney needs to point out to the American people a clear path of who, what, and when of what was said. Then point out that contrary to what Obozo has been telling everybody, that alQueda is NOT on the run, but rather, on the rise. And becomming more dangerous and deadly all the time.

And I wouldn't put it past him, but I get the feeling that General Petraeus himself just might be behind this "leak" about their findings so soon after the attack.

#33 In light of “Fast & Furious”, Obama’s desire to try terrorists in open Court, his campaign’s refusal to screen for or prevent illegal foreign credit card contributions, etc., that FR story, “Two SEALS Ruin October Surprise” that you provided the link to is not only plausible, it rings true.

In light of the sworn testimony that Charlene Lamb, a top State Department official, gave before Congress that she was in real-time communication with the Benghazi Consulate during the entire 5-6 hour long attack, several leaks from within the Intelligence community, and WH records showing that Obama actually attended his daily security briefings during the aftermath of the 9/11 attack, it is impossible to believe the WH’s claim that the statements by Obama and other members of his Administration for 2 weeks - that tied the attack to a protest over some months-old YouTube video - were based on the briefings they were receiving. No ring of truth whatsoever.

FTA: "It is unclear who, if anyone, saw the cable outside the CIA at that point and how high up in the agency the information went."

The Chief of Station is to the Director of Central Intelligence what the Ambassador is to the President, i.e., the CIA's representative in a foreign country. So if the COS sent a cable to CIA Headquarters on something of this magnitude, it would most likely been sent as an immediate cable but quite possibly at an even even higher precedence, especially if it came in after hours. If the latter case, someone would have been called in to Langley, even in the middle of the night.

And since, according to the article, the information "reached intelligence agencies in Washington the next day", I find it incredulous that 0bama and Clinton weren't informed sooner rather than later, analysts notwithstanding. We're talking about the assassination of an Ambassador and three other diplomats on September 11. This should have kept the President (and the Secretary of State) up all night.

Bottom line, 0bama and his whole Administration are flat out lying to the American people, from Jay Carney to Susan Rice.

(Note also that FTA the briefing points refer to "extremists"; this, no doubt, due to the Administration's policy to not call them what they are, that is, terrorists.)

I hope everyone checks out #33 links, especially the last one. The heroism of the two SEALS was amazing: rescuing 20 embassy personnel and holding off 200 Al-Qaeda for hours. They WERE NOT part of the Ambassador's protection detail, but rode to the rescue like American heroes do. They could have ignored the attack, but they didn't. Why isn't that well known? The description of a SEAL funeral will break your heart.

Thanks to #33 for posting.

Alhough the 41-year-old often stirs up controversy (thanks to everything from her touting her own wood-burning pizza oven to referring to her recent breakup as a "conscious uncoupling"), this latest reaction is due, in part, to a New York Post open letter to Paltrow regarding an interview she gave on the challenges of being a movie-star mom.

On Friday night O’Reilly stood by his words and called Lee both a “pinhead” and a “liar” in response. O’Reilly mocked Lee’s insinuation on MSNBC that on the right, “we all use phrases that denigrate African-Americans.” He went through a list of examples he believes bolsters his “race hustler” charge and said, “How about pinhead, congresswoman?

Having done his darndest in The Hague, Barack Obama is taking his “cast of 100s” caravan to the sands of the Saudis. Riyadh may seem a strange place to end a European tour, but Mr. Obama often does the unexpected. What he does not do when travelling, however, is deal directly with the really bad stuff. Even at The Hague, as tens of thousands of Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s border, he sought to divert attention from the calamity on Europe’s frontier. Instead, he asserted that Russia’s aggression was a sign of weakness, and Moscow would sooner or later come to

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role.

U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

White House takes step toward
regulating fracking emissions
Washington Examiner, by Zack Colman    Original Article

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

The White House on Friday touted the story of a “staunch Republican” who says he’s getting the best coverage he’s ever had under ObamaCare. “I am a staunch Republican, a self-proclaimed Fox News addict, and I didn´t vote for the President,” Mark Beard, a retired psychologist from North Carolina, wrote in a letter posted on the White House website. “And I´m here to tell you that ObamaCare works. I´m living proof.” Beard said he was paying $428 a month for chemotherapy treatment and was upset when he got a notice from his insurer saying his plan would be canceled. But he said

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep. Dana Rohrabacher

Gun control groups working to push further gun control in California worry that state senator Leland Yee´s indictment on arms trafficking "may slow the legislature´s consideration of gun restrictions this year." According to AP California News, on March 27 organizers of more legislation said "the charges filed against...Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, could cloud the future of two of his gun control bills." As Breitbart News reported on March 26, Yee supported an "assault weapons" ban in California and a requirement for background checks for ammunition purchases. He also co-sponsored an expansion of "the list of crimes that disqualify an individual

Joining a long line of Democrats distancing themselves from Obamacare, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel hinted that he didn´t support the President´s original plans for the healthcare take over and advised the President to take a different approach, though he shied from saying just what that meant. In a March 27 interview on cable business network CNBC, Emanuel claimed that he offered the President a "contrary opinion" on Obamacare but his advice was not heeded. "He asked for my opinion," Emanuel said during an interview on CNBC´s Squawk Box. "I gave it to him and why I thought we should do

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said
