The stink from Benghazi gets worse every day

June 6, 2012: Terrorists blew a big hole in the gate of our consulate in Benghazi.

October 10, 2012:  Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said,

“Under cover of darkness, assailants placed an IED on the north gate of Consulate Benghazi, blowing a hole in the security perimeter that was described by one individual as ‘big enough for forty men to go through.’”

“These pictures are of an attack that happened in Benghazi. The first was a so-called fish bomb. This is the compound in Benghazi before the attack. … The second bombing was an improvised explosive device [IED] that was placed on the north gate, breaching the wall [on June 6]. It was a test by terrorists and it was successful, and we didn’t respond fully and adequately.”

“We didn’t acknowledge it. We didn’t talk about it. We pretended it didn’t happen. It was a terrorist attack on a U.S. asset in Libya and it was never exposed. We pretended it didn’t happen.”

On Oct 19, 2012, Thomas Clough wrote about the September 11, 2012 attack:

“The attackers came equipped with assault rifles, automatic weapons and shoulder-launched rocket-propelled grenades. The attack began with rockets fire aimed at the mission gates. Within 15 minutes the attackers were inside the mission complex. Reports of well-targeted mortar fire was proof that this attack was the work of a trained and coordinated combat team.

[Once upon a time, I was a gunner in a heavy-weapons mortar platoon. We called our specialty “High-Angle Hell.” I speak from experience: precision artillery fire doesn’t “just happen.”]

No. It doesn’t just happen, does it?  They practiced on June 6th.

    Oct 26: A reporter named Kyle Clark tweeted he asked Obama repeatedly and directly whether he had denied requests for help in Benghazi. “Obama would not directly answer.”

    Oct 27: An Obama aide said in an email to Yahoo News, “Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi.”

    Oh yeah. THAT’s real convincing. And aide wrote in an email what the man himself refused to say out loud? ::snort::–election.html

    The absolute BEST case scenario re #Benghazi is dangerous levels of ignorance/incompetence in the White House. The BEST case. #StandDown

    If you’re watching this #Benghazi debacle unfold & still making excuses for Obama, then may God forget you were EVER called my countrymen.

    Obama keeps reminding us his skin is “historic.” On the night of the Benghazi attack, his skin was all he wanted to save.


  4. Chrissy, excellent work. You have penetrated that something that was missing for me. The earlier attack on the consulate. It was ignored. I do not remember reading about that attack and I vaguely remember hearing about the attack on the English. I did hear about the attack on the Red Cross and on the polling station that was meant as a warning to keep voters away.

    I am trying my hardest to take an approach that looks at more than one side, and by that I mean playing fair to those Libyans who are in fact friendly towards the West.

    I have just been reading some other reports involving the attack. I think some numbers are being exaggerated. I am happy with the figure of about 100 attackers. The Libyan witnesses said there were too many for them to tackle with their own poor equipment.

    What is coming to light is the detail of the preparation for the attack. The roads surrounding the compound were blocked. The neighbours to the embassy could go nowhere. A question so far not answered is the Turkish Ambassador who departed the embassy about 8.30. What did he see?

    The Turks have arrested two men believed to be associated with the attack. No one has said much about them. Tunisia has also arrested some people. One of those was involved in the attack on the US embassy in Tunisia.

    Something else in the reports that I just read is that the attackers actually grabbed about 20 youths and set them to chanting something about a video. There was a lawyer eye-witness who saw this happen. In other words, there was no spontaneous protest but there was something that was used as a cover. Maybe. It simply does not add up when there is no evidence of a protest outside the compound at 8.30. The attackers must have been hiding at that time.

    The bigger issue is the role of Ansar al Shariah. The Derna group claim that they are not responsible. That leaves the Benghazi group. Considering what took place later, the people of Benghazi wanted them gone.

    Something else that does not add up is a claim by one of the alleged guards who claims he was beaten. There is something fishy in that statement because the two who were on hand actually fled to the roof of their building. There was no third guard. Yet this person claims that as he was beaten he was called an infidel. I do not believe this person. His story varies too much from all of the other Libyan eye witnesses. Is he the mole?
