In a post 9-11 world, is the Obama Administrating operating as if it is September 10, 2001?
Four Americans, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Snowden Woods and Glen Doherty, were murdered in Libya on 9-11 at the US Consulate in Benghazi. The haunting and heinous pictures at the Daily Mail show that these Americans heroes were dragged to their death. Now we learn the following, 3 days before the attacks on the US Consulate, local Libyan officials warned the United States of the situation in Libya and the deteriorating security in Benghazi.
Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.
Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security.
He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn’t good for international business.
“The situation is frightening, it scares us,” Mabrouk said they told the U.S. officials. He did not say how they responded.
Mabrouk said it was not the first time he has warned foreigners about the worsening security situation in the face of the growing presence of armed jihadist groups in the Benghazi area.
Check out Powerline, how could the US have been so ill prepared? And we are supposed to believe that Obama is great on foreign policy and Sec. of State Hillary Clinton is the end all be all?
” … the situation at the State Department in one word: “Chaos.” The working assumption is that several American embassies may have been penetrated, or are vulnerable to attack, because so many of them rely on local residents for staff needs at the embassy, and as such may be in a position to breach security if they have been recruited by Al Qaida. Moreover, the full story of the attack on the Benghazi consulate is much worse than we have been told…”
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.
