    Diplomatic Posts Targeted Repeatedly in Benghazi in Run-Up to Deadly Assault!

    1. While the Obama administration says there was no actionable intelligence that could have prevented the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, there was a heightened threat in the region due to at least four attacks on diplomatic and western targets leading up to the murder of the U.S. ambassador.

    2. On June 6, an IED was thrown at the perimeter of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.

    3. On June 11, the British ambassador's motorcade came under attack by a rocket propelled grenade or RPG. Two security personnel were injured.

    4. Seven days later, on June 18, armed gunmen attacked the Tunisian consulate and burned its flag.

    5.And on August 5, five weeks before the assault on the U.S. Consulate, the International Committee of the Red Cross building in Benghazi was also struck by RPGs

    These attacks, all of which never were preceded by a mention of a Muslim film, were all warning of what was to come. Three of the attacks were on the Ambassador’s embassy or in Benghazi, the other in Tunisia which is under attack tonight.

    Yet the Obama Administration states there was no “actionable intelligence.” Would they know it when they saw it? Or more accurately put, did the Security Council ever have a time to discuss this with the President since he hasn’t been on the job in months.

    It appears to me that a showing of being on the job during a crisis would do more to enhance his election prowess that a few local speeches at this time, but that's just me. Not the brilliant Campaigner-Commander in Chief.

    So, point out the inaccuracies, if you would, please.
