Sources: Key task force not
convened during Benghazi
consulate attack

CBS News, by Sharyl Attkisson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/1/2012 6:55:47 PM

CBS News has learned that during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Obama Administration did not convene its top interagency counterterrorism resource: the Counterterrorism Security Group, (CSG). "The CSG is the one group that's supposed to know what resources every agency has. They know of multiple options and have the ability to coordinate counterterrorism assets across all the agencies," a high-ranking government official told CBS News. "They were not allowed to do their job. They were not called upon." Information shared with CBS News from top counterterrorism sources in

Comments:
Jennifer Griffin on Fox is also reporting this. I have to give Attkisson credit. She reported heavily on Fast & Furious and has been one of the few in the MSM reporting on this travesty.

He seems stuck on the idea that nothing could be done.

Well... nothing can be done if nothing was done. Duh.

As far as #2's comment - "possible" is the key word. Since VJ won't let Obama authorize force against Muslims it wasn't possible.

#4 on Geraldo - he's been on a downward trajectory since Al Capone's vault. Wasn't smart or competent then, is even less so now. There are an awful lot of well paid idiots presenting their irrational beliefs as fact on TV - appears to be an inverse relationship between intelligence and pay.

With few exceptions, the MSM are consciously suppressing the whole Benghazi story so Obama can run out the clock. Once the election is over, I expect it will get more play, because this thing isn't going away.

First news reported no muslim terriorists killed in raid. Now 89?? How did we miss that?

We will learn that this was a hit on the person of Chris Stephens.
A hit, a gangland style hit, performed by the muslim hit squad.
Stole the wearhouse full of weapons, ripped the secret papers, killed the witnesses.

Sharyl Attkisson has been EXPOSING the regime’s lies and subterfuges, one after the other, since (at least) March 2011 when she dared to expose the Fast and Furious scheme in her televised interview of ATF whistleblower John Dodson. Following her initial exposé, Attkisson continued reporting her investigation of F&F. She has been a one-woman army battling the White House, even continuing her battle long after the White House’s Eric Schultz screamed at her and the DoJ’s Tracy Schmaler yelled at her in attempts to intimidate Attkisson.

Laura Ingraham interviewed Attkisson about that intimidation attempt. You can still read about it, and listen to the audio, in this Weekly Standard report.

And you can see Attkisson’s nearly endless list of exposés here:

Kudos to CBS, too, for continuing to feature the investigative reporter who is apparently feared by the White House and the DoJ.

This story make sense to us because we came in at the beginning of the movie, but what about the typical CBS viewer who until yesterday had never heard the word, Benghazi?

Network-only types will probably never understand what happened over there, or the Boris and Natasha competency level of cover-up that followed. Some people just can't be wised up.

What matters now is that justice is served in a manner that deters future Obamas and Hillarys from imagining they can get away with anything they can think up.

Sometimes I view my fellow l dotters as my graduate students. And you students are failing this one.
Since Missie Barack decided that there was no terrorism, he could not call a meeting of his counter terrorism group. That would be contrary to the administration's narrative that the arab spring was democracy in action, and that libya was being controled by arab spring freedom lovers.
As a corollary to that, Missie Barack appoints commissions, and ignores them. He does not hold cabinet meetings. He is curiously detached from the mechanisms of the executive branch.
He seems to have attention deficit disorder, in addition to his narcissistic personality disorder.
So he didn't call on his counterterrorism group because they might have told him that it was terrorism. He couldn't tolerate that.

Correct #13. This whole story reminded me of a story that I was finally able to recall: In the cop world, there is this "code of silence". Once that rule is broken, there might be a very heavy price to pay. Unfortunately that price will be realized, during a tense situation, when backup does not arrive, when called. This reminds of that exact scenario.

There were just so many resources and chances to help Stevens, I keep going to back to the theory obama and co wanted him dead, either because he knew something incriminating, was about to spill the beans, he angered them over something or all/some combo. It's Vince Foster, Ron Brown, etc all over again. Hey Hildebeast-we see how you are.

Law-enforcement officials in the U.S. are expanding the use of tools routinely used by computer hackers to gather information on suspects, bringing the criminal wiretap into the cyber age. Federal agencies have largely kept quiet about these capabilities, but court documents and interviews with people involved in the programs provide new details about the hacking tools, including spyware delivered to computers and phones through email or Web links—techniques more commonly associated with attacks by criminals. People familiar with the Federal Bureau of Investigation´s programs say that the use of hacking

A handwritten note about Obamacare from President Obama was auctioned off for nearly $10,000. The auction house Nate D. Sanders put the final bid at $9,799. Some 10 people bid on the note in the July auction, and it was one of the highest bids for an Obama letter in his presidency. Here is how Sanders promoted the letter: "Excellent-content autograph letter signed by Barack Obama on his health care legislation.

Like a battered spouse in an abusive relationship, the Pentagon paid billions of dollars to companies even though the same companies were known to have defrauded the government in the past, according to a report compiled by Department of Defense officials. But the Pentagon´s ability to research sanctions levied by DOD offices against contractors, and to monitor sanctioned contractors as they merge, acquire new names and become new companies, is as piecemeal and filled with guesswork as that of anyone trying to do such research from the outside, with limited integrated systems and unique identifiers, the report said.

Hillary Clinton, get ready for your close-up. The former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate is the subject of a series of Hollywood projects set for release in the near future. On the line-up: An NBC miniseries called “Hillary,” a CNN documentary based on Clinton’s life and a movie, dubbed “Rodham,” dramatizing her early years as a Washington lawyer. Plus, there’s an HBO documentary about former President Bill Clinton in the works. Martin Scorsese (of “Taxi Driver” fame) is directing that film, which will focus on his presidency and post-White House life. What’s causing the flood?

Republican New Jersey governor Chris Christie is appealing to “ChristieCrats” in a new re-election ad touting his bipartisan credentials. The Youtube ad, which the Christie campaign is quick to note does not appear on television or radio, highlights the outburst of Democratic love for the governor following his high-profile embrace of President Obama after Hurricane Sandy late last October — a move that angered many national Republicans who felt the photo op damaged Mitt Romney’s chances in the 2012 presidential election. “There are so many Democrats endorsing Chris Christie’s re-election that they actually have a name, ‘ChristieCrats,’”

For children in the Middle East “summer camp” could mean rocket launchers, hand grenades, suicide vests and learning how to manage an improvised explosive device (IED). From the beginning of June until the first week in July, Hamas organizes month-long summer camps for nearly 100,000 students. More than 60% of them are young men between the ages of 10 and 22.

OCALA, Fla. — Angela Corey, the special prosecutor in George Zimmerman’s murder trial, is being sued by a former employee she fired after he testified against her handling of evidence in the case. Corey fired Ben Kruidbos, her office’s information technology director, after his June 6 pre-trial testimony in which he revealed information concealed from Zimmerman’s defense team by the prosecution. His termination letter included allegations of serious workplace misconduct such as violating public records laws. However, the allegations conflict with the kudos Corey’s office gave Kruidbos on May 16, when he received a pay raise for “meritorious service.”

By granting a yearly and renewable asylum to Edward Snowden, Vladimir Putin has challenged President Barack Obama. He has made it clear that the famous “reset” button with Russia, signed onto and endorsed by Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of State, meant only that the United States would allow Russia to get away with what it wanted in international affairs as long as Putin’s authority was not challenged. Russia would continue to aid its Syrian ally, no matter what “red lines” were crossed, and all the United States would do is urge Russia to act differently.

Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape

You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians.

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months.
