Default Obama had notice of attack but did nothing!

Quote:
According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted.

U.S. denies premeditation report in Libya attack

Update

Quote:
The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a “continuing security breach,” and that “credible information” about possible attacks had been ignored.

A U.S. official told POLITICO: “There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”

The newspaper, The Independent, plastered its cover with the headline, “Revealed: inside story of US envoy’s assassination,” and reported inside: “The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the result of a serious and continuing security breach … American officials believe the attack was planned."

The article continued: "According to senior diplomatic sources, the U.S. State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and ‘lockdown’, under which movement is severely restricted."

Shawn Turner, spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, emailed: “This is absolutely wrong. We are not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent.”

The Drudge Report gave the story banner, red-type, siren treatment, with a photo of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: “PAPER: U.S. WARNED OF EMBASSY ATTACK BUT DID NOTHING.”

When it comes out the story is true, what then, more denials from this inept administration and stupid comments from his sycophant followers?

Then we have this;

Egypt intelligence warns of attacks on Israel, US embassies

Quote:
Egypt's General Intelligence Service warned that a jihadi group is planning to launch terrorist attacks against the US and Israeli embassies in Cairo, according to a report Tuesday by Egypt Independent, citing a secret letter obtained by Al-Masry Al-Youm.

According to the report, the attack is being planned by Global Jihad, the group suspected of killing 16 Egyptian border guards in Sinai on August 5.

Al-Masry Al-Youm reportedly obtained a copy of the September 4 letter, sent to all Egyptian security sectors, warning that Sinai- and Gaza-based Global Jihad cells were planning attacks on the two embassies.

Egypt's military is engaged in an ongoing campaign to root out Sinai-based terrorists.
Jerusalem Post - Breaking News

That seems to contradict the denials of the obama administration. If our ally, who is not an ally, (we don't know because obama can't make up his mind,) was warning us and Israel Sept. 4th, then there is enough doubt about the administrations denial.

Now I expect that we'd all be rapt with attention at the content of your post were this a discussion of organic soil amendments.

However, this is, in fact, a discussion of the gross incompetence of the Obama Administration, its ethical failures, and by extension the blind idiocy that could have led a majority of American voters to select such an obviously unqualified candidate.

As a side note, people who have made a study of Islam, militancy in primitive societies, and the results of national timidity on the part of major powers began expecting that this sort of thing would come to pass beginning many months ago. It was blatantly obvious to anyone who cared to look and think.

That was just too funny

And a big thumbsup for the rest of the post.

Remember when Obama was praised by the usual suspects for his unilateral decision to send the US military into combat? After making no effort rally Congress or the People he announced it from a press conference in Brazil.

More Desperate attempts to discredit the President. There is no proof that anyone was notified so you are following in the footsteps of your leader and jumping the gun here.

On the other hand we do know from FACT that Bush was handed Documents in May of 2001 telling him there was definitely going to be an attack on the U.S. and even named Osama Bin laden as the attacker... What did he do with that information?.. He went to read to 2nd graders, because that was his reading level I suppose...

See I can do it too, you know, make up a erroneous conspiracy to deflect the attention to the target of my choice... That's all you're doing here , making excuses for Willards ignorance.
