White House knew 2 hrs after attack started

270 posts in this topic

I know this is going to surprise you...but Drudge is my home page. I don't listen to Mainstream Media. I get my news from Drudge, Rush, Hannity, and The Great One, Mark Levin. But, I do hear what the media says because Rush is always playing a 'montaj' of sound bites...and they all say the same thing...it doesn't matter ABC, NBC, it doesn't matter they ALL say the same thing...and whatever they say is the same thing that comes out of the White House press room. It isn't arguable...it is just a fact....BUT..

I will tell you WHAT I DON'T LIKE ABOUT DRUDGE...he has a tendency to Tilt a story to the Right even if it isn't. It is the headlines...and I know Headlines are meant to capture your attention and get you to read the story and there is an art to them and all that...but a lot of times the headlines ARE blatant falsehoods, and when you read the story it doesn't jive at all with the headline.

An example of Drudge exaggeration:

OBAMA LEFT THEM BEHIND: HUNGRY DUMPSTER DIVING IN NYC

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

An example of MSNBC exaggeration:

VIDEO SHOWS BUSH GOT EXPLICIT KATRINA WARNING

bush_katrina.jpg

In both cases the headline is blatantly falsely accusatory, aimed at the 'base'. The Drudge link is to NBC and says nothing about blaming Obama. The MSNBC link shows a video of a briefing Bush received about Katrina. The only one's damning Bush in the link was MSNBC itself. There was nothing outrageous about the video.

So...the game is played on both sides...all of it meant to sell news. We just have to be rational and know that Bush did everything he could do, which, given the circumstances of Katrina was...not much. And...Obama is doing everything that he can do, which, given the circumstances of Sandy is...not much.

People...you have to be SMARTER than the Media thinks we are!

Election not withstanding...I'm getting pretty fed up with SPIN...from both sides....that was what FOX news was supposed to be...YOU decide...but now it's all the same game no matter where you go.

If you have seen anything I have posted, you know I am a conservative/republican. However, your statement above gives the rest of us a bad name. I can understand reading over Drudge... however... Rush and Levin are two of the biggest problems we have in conservative media... the tilt/slant they apply to every thing and the cherry picking they do only makes things much worse than they actually are. Rush's arrogance is beyond deplorable. I suggest that you branch out your media intake... learn what others are thinking and get to the heart of a few facts instead of listening to everything that is right wing. Check out a few news outlets from across the pond... you may be suprised to see the facts they gather.

We cannot fight this battle if not informed properly and if you take in everything with a spin attached to it you will only get dizzy and start babbling nonsense.

You are entitled to your opinion of course...but I totally disagree with your take on Rush!

C.I.A. Played Major Role Fighting Militants in Libya Attack

WASHINGTON — Security officers from the C.I.A. played a pivotal role in combating militants who attacked the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, deploying a rescue party from a secret base in the city, sending reinforcements from Tripoli, and organizing an armed Libyan military convoy to escort the surviving Americans to hastily chartered planes that whisked them out of the country, senior intelligence officials said Thursday.

The account given by the senior officials, who did not want to be identified, provided the most detailed description to date of the C.I.A.’s role in Benghazi, a covert presence that appears to have been much more significant than publicly disclosed.

Within 25 minutes of being alerted to the attack against the diplomatic mission, half a dozen C.I.A. officers raced there from their base about a mile away, enlisting the help of a handful of Libyan militia fighters as they went. Arriving at the mission about 25 minutes after that, the C.I.A. officers joined State Department security agents in a futile search through heavy smoke and enemy fire for Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens before evacuating the mission’s personnel to the apparent safety of their base, which American officials have called an annex to the mission. Mr. Stevens was one of four Americans killed in the attack.

Very odd how none of this was mentioned in the Oct. 9 background briefing to reporters... it tells a very different story. I really dont care who said it was an act of terror or when... I do care that little to no help was sent to them in a timely manner... I do care that we lost more American lives that day that could have been saved. I do care that before this attack happened they requested more security and were denied... I do care that it was known that an attack was coming. The brits and Red Cross both pulled out just days before this went down. Im no conspiracy theorist by any means, but this story DOES NOT add up.

Benghazi Attack Timeline:

3 p.m.: Ambassador Stevens retires to his bedroom for the evening. (See Oct. 9 briefing.)

Approximately 3:40 p.m. A security agent at the Benghazi compound hears “loud noises” coming from the front gate and “gunfire and an explosion.” A senior State Department official at the Oct. 9 briefing says that “the camera on the main gate reveals a large number of people – a large number of men, armed men, flowing into the compound.”

About 4 p.m.: This is the approximate time of attack that was given to reporters at a Sept. 12 State Department background briefing. An administration official identified only as “senior administration official one” provides an official timeline of events at the consulate, but only from the time of the attack — not prior to the attack. The official says, “The compound where our office is in Benghazi began taking fire from unidentified Libyan extremists.” (Six of the next seven entries in this timeline — through 8:30 p.m. EDT — all come from the Sept. 12 briefing. The exception being the 6:07 p.m. entry, which comes from Reuters.)

About 4:15 p.m.: “The attackers gained access to the compound and began firing into the main building, setting it on fire. The Libyan guard force and our mission security personnel responded. At that time, there were three people inside the building: Ambassador Stevens, one of our regional security officers, and Information Management Officer Sean Smith.”

Between 4:15 p.m.-4:45 p.m.: Sean Smith is found dead.

About 4:45 p.m.: “U.S. security personnel assigned to the mission annex tried to regain the main building, but that group also took heavy fire and had to return to the mission annex.”

About 5:20 p.m.: “U.S. and Libyan security personnel … regain the main building and they were able to secure it.”

Around 6 p.m.: “The mission annex then came under fire itself at around 6 o’clock in the evening our time, and that continued for about two hours. It was during that time that two additional U.S. personnel were killed and two more were wounded during that ongoing attack.”

6:07 p.m.: The State Department’s Operations Center sends an email to the White House, Pentagon, FBI and other government agencies that said Ansar al-Sharia has claimed credit for the attack on its Facebook and Twitter accounts. (The existence of the email was not disclosed until Reuters reported it on Oct. 24.)

About 8:30 p.m.: “Libyan security forces were able to assist us in regaining control of the situation. At some point in all of this – and frankly, we do not know when – we believe that Ambassador Stevens got out of the building and was taken to a hospital in Benghazi. We do not have any information what his condition was at that time. His body was later returned to U.S. personnel at the Benghazi airport.”

I'm guessing you didn't read any news in the past few days. Otherwise you would know that Obama ending his campaign and made a point of cutting through the red tape to ensure aid got to people faster, earning the praise of some Republicans. That while he has restarted his campaign so has Romney.

And again the investigation is still ongoing. You have zero proof, none but your own bias, that Obama did anything personally wrong. Yet you act as if Obama personally murdered people and then skull ****ed them in front of children.

Yes it will be over on Tuesday and thankfully it's looking like it'll be an Obama victory. Which is good because the GOP is way too crazy right now to be given the keys.

I think it is wonderful he finally figured out that you need to get the government out of the way. regardless, it isn't working. What is happening up there is a nightmare and the press is trying to ignore it but that will fail.

At minimum this article demonstrates our current leadership is unfit to lead!

Key task force not convened during Benghazi consulate attack
Counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help in the attack.

Another senior counter terrorism official says a hostage rescue team was alternately asked to get ready and then stand down throughout the night, as officials seemed unable to make up their minds.

A third potential responder from a counter-terror force stationed in Europe says components of AFICOM -- the military's Africa Command based in Stuttgart, Germany -- were working on course of action during the assault. But no plan was put to use.

"Forces were positioned after the fact but not much good to those that needed it," the military source told CBS News.

"The response process was isolated at the most senior level," says an official referring to top officials in the executive branch. "My fellow counterterrorism professionals and I (were) not consulted."

Do you even read information or do you pick through it and formulate the best pro-obama spin you can and post it right away without actually knowing what you are really talking about? Please, for the love of all that is good, read the information presented, do your own research and come out with FACTS and then form a real opinion, regardless of bias and party affiliation.

It has been shown time and time again that there were mulitiple ways that more help could have been sent into benghazi both BEFORE and DURING the attack that left Americans dead. So many resources available and went unused... calls that were made that went unanswered... A formal, deep investigation needs to be done on this situation. All of the FACTS need to be gathered, excuses need to stop being made and some one needs to put their big boy pants on and take responsibility.

Oh, and I know what the CIA is, if you would care to read my post here you would know that the Military and National Security are what I have done for a living my entire adult life. Furthermore, if what you said were the case, the initial report that was given to the media would not have been given, due to the fact that it lays down a plain, simple and factual timeline of events. Doing this and then releasing a separate timeline 3 weeks later only further damages the credibility of the administration.

So thats why Obama himself is saying there was a huge breakdown in Benghazi? I mean, which is it? When the administration broke the original information it was told that they couldnt get help there in time... now we are being told that they had feet on the ground 25 minutes after the attack began...

Here are a few sources for you to check out... Please dont comment again until you have read all of them and formed an actual opinion other than the spewing maddness from your political bias... If you do more of the same ill just end up blocking you. Its becoming more and more evident you dont have the ability to rationalize things in your own mind. This is not a personal attack against you, but enough is enough.

The official says a protocol set forth in a classified presidential directive calls for the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) to be convened in the event of a possible terrorist attack. According to a public military document, the directive was designed to "synchronize the efforts of all the government agencies that have a role to play in the Global War on Terrorism."

CSG was not called upon.....

President Barack Obama said in an interview that if the investigation into the Sept. 11 attack on the American compound in Libya finds that "there was a big breakdown, and somebody didn't do their job, they'll be held accountable."

_____

Klein explained that everyone knew what was happening in Benghazi from the CIA to the National Security Agency and that there’s intelligence cables that have not been released.

Wilkow asked, “If everybody knew this including the White House, who would have given the order to go in and save the ambassador?”

Klein, “The President…he should have given the order to use the rapid reaction force…”

Wilkow, “Not Petraeus?”

Klein, “Well it has to come from the president.”

again, no substance... you arent saying anything at all... is it just that you KNOW you cant combat the truth so you resort to horsepoop? Not a single one of the links above say we couldnt have responded faster... are you missing the fact that the administration is now trying to say they had people on the ground within 25 minutes of the attack? Where is your head? Are you lost in your own biased deslusion? Have you completely wrapped yourself in a blanket and refuse to peer out? And What conspiracy theories are you refering to? Since it doesnt come from your prefered source (if you even have sources.. cause ive never seen them) you cast them down as a conspiracy? Everything said in my quotes and links is the truth... familiarize yourself with it.
