No one could have seen it coming? Hmm. Odd thing that they were begging for more help and were refused:
State Dept. acknowledges rejecting requests for more security in Benghazi - The Washington Post: "The State Department acknowledged Wednesday that it rejected appeals for more security at its diplomatic posts in Libya in the months before a fatal terrorist attack in Benghazi"
and that the budget had nothing to do with it:
Top Revelations from Libya Hearing - By Katrina Trinko - The Corner - National Review Online: "But when questioned, Lamb denied that budgetary concerns had influenced her decision. committee “It has been suggested that budget cuts are responsible for a lack of security in Benghazi, and I’d like to ask Miss Lamb,” said Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R., Calif.). “You made this decision personally. Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which lead you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?”
“No, sir,” said Lamb."
Who could have seen this coming? Hmm. Perhaps the man responsible for security on the ground?
Nah, I'm sure he's just shilling for Issa, right?
Oh and that "classified" site you're blathering about on the other post was over-run on the night of the attack and still has not been secured. The NYT reported on this very site on 9/24/11
What was the plan prior to these attacks?
The plan was to "hope" things would get better. This is a theme for Obama. He didn't meet with his jobs council for a year in the midst of the worst economic crises in our lifetimes. Instead the idea was to use QE, stimulus, hope and unicorn farts to make things all better.
The US Ambassador to the UN is now cheerleading that the UN is slightly more inclusive of gay people. No, seriously.
Susan Rice (AmbassadorRice) on Twitter: "Susan Rice @AmbassadorRice
Together with #LGBT allies & #humanrights defenders, we've made history. The #UN is far different than it was 4 years ago."
Our country is being run by total amateurs. The Middle East is in flames, a NATO ally is trading artillery shells with Syria and our embassy in Libya was over-run and four Americans are dead and she's banging on about this crap.
The 3 AM call came to Obama in the form of the economy and he had no idea what to do. The 3 AM call came to Hillary and she passed the buck to Obama who had no idea what to do. Clinton, in keeping with her name, lied about the reason for the attack, the nature of the attack and virtually everything thereafter.
The furious spin on this from the Left all circles back to the endless bleating about how Bush ignored the warnings before 9/11. Which is more damning? Bin Laden determined to strike US targets? Or the long line of ignorance and incompetence that we see listed above?Posted by Duffy at October 11, 2012 02:47 PM | TrackBack
