    Revealed: inside story of US envoy's assassination - World Politics - World - The Independent


    Still want Hillary and Co. to pick up that 3 AM phone call? Be sure to read the comments.

    "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, The Independent can reveal.

    American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.

    "The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".

    "Senior officials are increasingly convinced, however, that the ferocious nature of the Benghazi attack, in which rocket-propelled grenades were used, indicated it was not the result of spontaneous anger due to the video, called Innocence of Muslims. Patrick Kennedy, Under-Secretary at the State Department, said he was convinced the assault was planned due to its extensive nature and the proliferation of weapons."

    This will turn out to be as much of a lie from you as your thread claiming the ambassador's corpse was paraded through the streets.

    Either way, this is a colossal mess. Obviously security should have been better. Someone has to be held accountable. And that someone includes our President. This is his awful illegitimate War.

    How do you say such things when the evidence is the otherwise? Here is a link to an updated article, caution, picture of ambassador being paraded:

    This War was an awful scam right from the start. Just payback to the Euros to get that Libyan Oil. We owed them. Our own President knew it was scam and that's why he didn't bother to seek Congressional approval. This is a very sad and completely unnecessary tragedy.

    The source of your claim has been traced to the Independent. No names, no evidence, no basis in fact. Just a tabloid paper's headline.

    State Department Denies Having Advanced Warning of an Attack


    Amid the belief that the attack in Benghazi was the work of premeditated terrorists, there's a report from the British newspaper The Independent saying the State Department had advance warning of an attack and decided not to do anything. A Department rep. called it "absolutely wrong."

    The Independent reports the State Department knew about a potential threat on American diplomatic missions a full two days before anything happened but opted not to do anything:

    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.”
