Heraldo Admits Libya Attack May Have Been Caused By Anti-Muslim Video
Their asses must be too sore to deny it any longer.
It's an old story that came out of a secret room once used by Al Capone, the safe wasn't empty.
James Rosen at FOX News reported: Across 166 pages of internal State Department documents – released today by a pair of Republican congressmen pressing the Obama administration for more answers on the Benghazi terrorist attack – slain U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and the security officers assigned to protect him repeatedly sounded alarms to their superiors in Washington about the intensifying lawlessness and violence in Eastern Libya, where Stevens ultimately died.
On September 11 – the day Stevens and three other Americans were killed – the ambassador signed a three-page cable, labeled “sensitive,” in which he noted “growing problems with security” in Benghazi and “growing frustration” on the part of local residents with Libyan police and security forces. These forces the ambassador characterized as “too weak to keep the country secure.”
In the document, Stevens also cited a meeting he had held two days earlier with local militia commanders. These men boasted to Stevens of exercising “control” over the Libyan Armed Forces, and threatened that if the U.S.-backed candidate for prime minister were to prevail in Libya’s internal political jockeying, “they would not continue to guarantee security in Benghazi.”
Roughly a month earlier, Stevens had signed a two-page cable, also labeled “sensitive,” that he entitled “The Guns of August: Security in Eastern Libya.” Writing on August 8, the ambassador noted that in just a few months’ time, “Benghazi has moved from trepidation to euphoria and back as a series of violent incidents has dominated the political landscape…The individual incidents have been organized,” he added, a function of “the security vacuum that a diverse group of independent actors are exploiting for their own purposes.”
“Islamist extremists are able to attack the Red Cross with relative impunity,” Stevens cabled. “What we have seen are not random crimes of opportunity, but rather targeted and discriminate attacks.” His final comment on the two-page document was: “Attackers are unlikely to be deterred until authorities are at least as capable.”
…After the U.S. consulate in Benghazi had been damaged by an improvised explosive device, earlier that month, Stevens had reported to his superiors that an Islamist group had claimed credit for the attack, and in so doing, had “described the attack as ‘targeting the Christians supervising the management of the consulate.”
“Islamic extremism appears to be on the rise in eastern Libya,” the ambassador wrote, adding that “the Al-Qaeda flag has been spotted several times flying over government buildings and training facilities…”
Despite these many warnings the Obama administration cut security in Libya.
And then they lied and said the 9-11 Benghazi terror strike was a YouTube “protest.”
Is Fox ????
You are such a dumbass.
Who is FOX, then? Hannity? Chris Wallace?
Geraldo has FOXNEWS seniority over almost everyone there.
blame this on fox all you want, but Obama's the one that lied, and they American people know it.
they were also denied the use of a plane to get out of there if it got rough. I heard them state in the hearings that it was determinied that it was safe to fly out commercially there. I wonder by whom? If you indeed read all the documents you would see there were numerous attacks going on at the airport there. Another failure there.
Geraldo, the staunch Democrat also thought Casey Anthony was innocent. LMAO!
Hardly. You don't watch that much, do you?
"We demand answers!!!"
"No not those. We demand the answers we want!"
