U.S. officials in Benghazi warned the Obama regime they couldn’t withstand a coordinated attack one month prior to the attack
It is now being reported here that on August 15th–less than one month before the terrorist attack–the United States officials stationed in Benghazi held an emergency meeting because of the deteriorating situation in Libya.
This is how they saw the situation:
RSO (Regional Security Officer) expressed concerns with the ability to defend Post in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities, host nation support, and the overall size of the compound,
the Emergency Action Committee was also briefed “on the location of approximately ten Islamist militias and AQ training camps within Benghazi … these groups ran the spectrum from Islamist militias, such as the QRF Brigade and Ansar al-Sharia, to ‘Takfirist thugs.’” Each U.S. mission has a so-called Emergency Action Committee that is responsible for security measures and emergency planning.
This report detailed the deteriorating situation on the ground as well as the lack of proper security and it was addressed to Hillary Clinton and was accompanied by a request for more security.
We now know the request for more security was denied so if we look at the facts relayed in this story we can only assume that Hillary Clinton is to blame for denying increased security requests, right? After all Hillary Clinton did take the blame.
Not so fast. While publicly Hillary Clinton fell on the sword for Barack Obama privately her lawyers have been positioning themselves for her legal defense and that tells a different story.
According to this story, Hillary Clinton’s lawyers are now claiming that she did in fact ask Barack Obama for increased security at the United States consulate in Benghazi but Barack Obama personally denied the request.
This, of course, flies in the face of Joe Biden’s debate claim that neither he nor the president had any idea a request for more security had been made, not that anyone believed him in the first place.
What we have here is a dereliction of duty of epic proportions; to think that Barack Obama knew the situation in Libya was reaching a critical point, and he did nothing even when requests were made for more security so close to a date everyone knew that terrorists would love to exploit and still he did nothing is simply unforgivable. And the cover up which ensued might just be an impeachable offense. I honestly don’t know how he sleeps at night.
