Elite Marines sent to Tripoli in wake of Libya attack

There are 200 comments on the www.csmonitor.com story from Sep 13, 2012, titled Elite Marines sent to Tripoli in wake of Libya attack. In it, www.csmonitor.com reports that:

A group of US Marines have been sent to Tripoli in response to an attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, during which the US ambassador to Libya was killed.

The US dispatched an elite group of Marines to Tripoli on Wednesday after the mob attack that killed the US ambassador and three other Americans. Officials were investigating whether the rampage was a backlash to an anti-Islamic video with ties to Coptic Christians or a plot to coincide with the anniversary of 9/11.

Rep. Michele Bachmann is raising questions about possible ties between the family of a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Muslim Brotherhood, the St. Cloud Times reported, and called for a probe of potential Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into the Obama administration.

Bachmann, a member of the House intelligence committee and former Republican presidential candidate, is asking how Huma Abedin, deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and wife of former New York congressman Anthony Weiner, received State Department security clearance despite three members of Abedin’s family having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an international Islamist group that recently came to power in Egypt, the Times reported.

Bachmann says Abedin’s job gives her routine access to Clinton, and says the State Department has taken recent actions “that have been enormously favorable to the Muslim Brotherhood and its interests,” according to the Times.

The Minnesota congresswoman’s claims are documented in a 16-page response letter to Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, who called for Bachmann and four other Republican lawmakers to back up the information on which she based a request for federal investigations into whether the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the U.S. government, the Times reported.

Bachmann said she relied partially on court documents from the Holy Land Foundation for Relief trials, whose members were convicted of funneling money to Hamas. In the letter, Bachmann also expressed concern about reports that an Egyptian lawmaker allegedly tied to a terrorist group received a State Department visa and met with Obama administration officials last month, the Times reported.

Bachmann said she never accused Abedin of working on behalf of the Brotherhood but questions how Abedin obtained a State Department security clearance, the Times reported.

“I am particularly interested in exactly how, given what we know from the international media about Ms. Abedin’s documented family connections with the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, she was able to avoid being disqualified for a security clearance,” Bachmann wrote, according to the paper.

At least she tried??

US State Dept. at the embassy in Cairo do NOT let marines guarding the embassy there carry live ammo. Now they will send 50 marines unarmed into a den of thousands of rpg/machine gun armed muzzie terrorists. Can we say 'Marine barraks massacre' in Lebanon ? This admin is so pathetic in response to anything in their precious muzzie world that it's laughable. Thank god for Nov. coming up so we can get a 'real' prez in the oval office and this innefective bowing muzzie lover sent home like jimmy cahtuh was.

I wonder what the Libians will say about this? Since Marines were never supposed to be in Libia. They were banned from Libia for years.

It's a little late,'Mr Bill'

Do ya think Obama and Hillary could have figured out there would be protests in these unstable arab states during the 9/11 anniversary?

The protesting arabs are yelling what?

They are chanting, not film maker, film maker!

THEY ARE killing, burning, and yelling: "OBAMA, OBAMA"

Obama=foreign policy FAILURE

Obama=has to correct statement that Egypt is NOT an ally of the USA.

Obama=had to walk back his comment.

Obama can't handle the heat-GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN!

NO IN NOvember!

From the current scenes outside the Embassy in Cairo it could be Jimmy Carter Deux.

I hope Obama is persuaded to stop campaigning long enough to get our personnel out of Egypt before it is too late. We shouldn't count on it. That would require a degree of selflessness that is anything BUT Obama.

You are the one who is confused.
Actually, there were protests in past years. Just last year in fact. This is the first Libyan protest since Obama bombed Libya and, don't forget, he did that without authorization from Congress.

When we were in the military it was common knowlege the Marines guarding our embassies are unarmed. They are afraid one of our people might accidentally shoot some infiltrating muslim bastard coming over the fence, and cause an incident. Well, now we hve a dead American Ambassador because Obama is a coward, and synoathizes with the enemy. I can't wait until Nov 7th
