The UK Independent is reporting that there had been a high level security leak that provided
the militants al-Qaeda the information necessary to carry out the attacks in Benghazi, including timing about Amb. Steven’s visit, and information about the safe-house location that ultimately came under mortar fire. Worse, the White House knew about the threat but did nothing to pass the information along to personnel on the ground in Libya, waiting until after the disaster to send a special Marine anti-terror team into Libya. No warnings were issued to personnel that would have permitted them to call off the Benghazi trip or otherwise augment security. It was a set-up. It had nothing to do with any film, except perhaps as a cover. With this new information, it should be clear that Barack Obama is incompetent to lead this nation, and his lack of leadership is now a security threat all its own.
The entire attack was orchestrated, and it is now becoming clear that somebody who had extremely sensitive inside information about the movements of the Ambassador and other Embassy and Consular personnel must have provided that information to the attackers. Muslim Brotherhood links to the White House must be examined, as must all Libyans, or other personnel working in and around the Department of State both in Washington and on the ground in Libya. This crisis evinces the most stunning foreign policy and intelligence failures since the “Bay of Pigs” in 1962, and it appears to be worsening.
Given past threats on or around the 9/11 anniversary, one would think there would have been at least general warnings sent out to Embassies and Consulates worldwide, but neither the State Department under the
leadership mismanagement of Secretary Hillary Clinton nor anybody in the Executive branch answering to the President seems to have been the least bit concerned. More, we ought to suspect there are insiders in either the State Department or in the Executive branch feeding information to al Qaeda and its affiliates.
Not only do we have amateurs in the White House and in the State Department, but we must have somebody playing for the other team in close proximity to sensitive information. Barack Obama has left us financially broken, militarily naked, and isolated from our only reliable ally in the region, Israel. He has no time for Benjamin Netanyahu, no time for security or intelligence briefings, and no time to lead this nation. Meanwhile, the lapdog media in the US continues to pretend none of this is happening, while none of our reporters will even attempt to ask President Obama a question. We had 48 hours or more of warning, and President Obama didn’t bolster security? Nobody in the lame-stream media is even slightly curious?
This is a dereliction of duty that shouldn’t be forgiven or forgotten. I don’t want to hear any excuses about him having a blind spot with respect to Islam because of his acculturation. No way. This is the President who bowed his way through the Middle East, and apologizes repeatedly to Islam. This is a wreck, and he made it.
