Intelligence Official:

We knew it was a terror attack within minutes of the attack. Obama's adminstration insisted on pointing to an anti-islam video which had already been out for 2 months.

Slowly, but surely, we convinced Obama that it was not the video, but instead, was the result of not beefing up security on the anniversary of 911 (as Stevens had requested).

That's pretty much how it evolved.

So if htey had more security those people wouldn't have attacked in the hundreds? what level of security would have stopped a group armed with RPGs?

Who is this intelligence official that you can't name?

Yes, fortifying the consulate in Libya and at each embassy through-out the middle east on the anniversary of 911 would have been the responsible thing to do as POTUS. There's no question that our intelligence in the region made such recommendations (not to mention Stevens himself).

There's little doupt, that had Obama done his job, Stevens would be alive today. Instead, Obama managed to convince himself that his apology tours has won the hearts and minds of the islamic radicals. Stevens paid for Obama's disasterous middle east policy with his life.

Then dozens more paid when Obama insisted on pushing a 2 month old you tube video...

It all started with Obama spiking the bin laden football. Anything to get re-elected.

Here are the facts on Libya.The country of Libya was until last year a great country which had a great leader,great government which was loved by the majority of the people,Very good economy,0 outside debt and a strong leader which stood up and helped not only his people in Libya but many other countries in Africa also.The terrorist regan tried to create a war in Libya in the 80's on charges which were pure BS and failed.Last year in the american government created event called the "arab spring" war was created in Libya once again by america and israel.This time the pretext was "peaceful protesters" being killed WHICH WAS A 100% LIE!! The entire war created against Libya by the american government,israel and nato along with the puppets of britain and france was to overthrow the rightful government in Libya which was supported by the VAST VAST majority of Libyans and install a puppet government which could be controlled by the american government and israel which would allow the oil of Libya to be stolen,the wealth fund of Libya to be stolen,and the country to be more opperssed than it was under italian occupation.Another benefit of this american instaigted war was to weaken Africa as a whole and make it more in line with the africom agenda of america.The goal has always been to suck Africa dry of all natural resources along with the middle east to keep the dying economies of america and europe afloat for one more day.Huge and OBVIOUS lies were created by the american jewish controlled media including aljazeera and others about Libya and its government to build support for this illegal war that cost the lives of tens of thousands of Libyans and cost the country of Libya billions in damage.Thousands are still held in prisons by terrorist members of the NTC and tortured daily.Hopefully the citizens of Libya can unite and overthrow their american/israel installed puppet government the same way they removed the italian occupation years ago.

It just goes to show that having non-US security, who ran away when the attack began/one account being that security led the attackers to where those who were killed were. The only protection they had was when those 2 ex-SEALs stepped in and depsite the lies, they weren't securtiy who bumbled the job. Word has it that due to their efforts, there were people who survived the attack. They bravely stepped in to the breach w/out ground intelligence, etc and all that woman Susan Rice and Apologist and Panderer in Chief wish to do is side-step their ineptitude when it doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that on the anniversary of 9/11, one of AQ's people in Pakistan had been killed/leading to the White House being contacted in that there were serious concerns from everyone that their safety was seriously comprimised/including Ambassador Steven's grave concerns re a hit on him by AQ.

All the Apologist and Panderer in Chief could think about was his trip to Vegas. I did notice that he didn't hesitate to use the SEALs for political gain but now he wants to make it out that the two who gave their lives, the ultimate sacrifice for this country that they loved were bumbling security detail.

I can guarantee one thing, those two SEALs knew exactly what was going down and yet, the Commander and Chief of this country who our safety is entrusted to didn't? Sure. Then again, all he is concerned about is his campaign and Susan Rice, covering her a** and Barry's because if he's re-elected, she'll still have a job.

As one person stated, it was no less than the Alamo while the Apologist in Chief continues to pound sand up America's a**.

"America elected a monster."

*ineptitude not on the part of the SEALs but the Apologist and Panderer in Chief, rather.

And wasn't it special that the Apologist and Panderer in Chief used Ambassador Steven's as he did at the UN when it due to his fck up that Ambassador Stevens and three others, including those two ex-SEALs who died heroes, were murdered by those savages that he panders to. And then he's off to go be on the View rather than maybe doing the job he was elected to. Then again, everything is coming up roses in the Middle East because "he doesn't look like other Presidents."

Fck him.

Attention woodenhead!!! Security includes getting the hell out of Dodge. We knew 17 days ago there were confirmed 48 hour warnings and nothing was done so Americans were sitting ducks on 9/11.
The buck stops with b. h. obama, next in line is hilliary clintoon. Those two who spent 17 days pointing fingers at a movie and their publicity caused more death and destruction...Bottom line it was not the movie that caused the deaths of 4 innocent Americans...Was It? And for b. h. obama to cling to a movie when he knew better is sickening...And certainly not presidential.
The self-servers b. h. obama and hilliary clintoon outright lied to the American People to cover up their own incompetence. America deserves much better than that...don't ya think?

That is a 100% lie and you know it as well as I do.He was a great leader loved by the VAST majority of Libyans and many others around the world.Libya was a great country and is a hell on earth now because of the american instagated terorist proxie war against libya.The countries that support terrorism are the american government and israel just as they are openly doing in Syria now and are still doing in Libya.These are facts.

If he was so lo ed, why was pretty much the entire world happy to help see him go?

Please show me some proof that he was loved by his people and others around the world as you say, because a ten second google search will bring up thousands of articles showing the exact opposite, that he was a despotic, terrorism sponsoring tyrant with a very fragile grasp of reality and sanity.
