State Department Official on Benghazi Security: "Our Security Plan Worked"

Really?

Apparently so. Here is their spin: The greatest threat, in their estimation, was an IED attack. In June 2012, the compound was in fact attacked by an IED, but didn't do much damage.

Ergo, since Chris Stevens and Sean Smith were not killed with an IED, they're claiming... the security worked. Their security, keyed to that threat (and apparently only that threat), did not fail to stop a bomb that didn't exist.

Things our Protect Obama Media (POM) won't highlight: even the owners of the villa serving as the consulate were surprised at how little security there was.

The WSJ has a story that NBC of course will not touch about the "miscues" in security at Benghazi.

U.S. officials issued alerts and ordered security precautions in neighboring Egypt ahead of protests and violence on Sept. 11, but largely overlooked the possibility of trouble at other diplomatic postings in the region. . . .

The U.S. didn’t seriously consider sending in the military during the attack. It summoned rapid-response teams of Marines only after the U.S. ambassador was dead. State Department officials said they doubted the Pentagon could have mobilized a rescue force quickly enough to make a difference during the fighting. The Pentagon waited for guidance from State, which is responsible for diplomatic security, a senior military official said.

Adding a new dimension to the chain of events, the siege also engulfed what officials now describe as a secret safe house used by American officials and security personnel involved in sensitive government programs after last year’s Libyan revolution.

Even when that building, also known as the “annex,” came under attack, U.S. officials were reluctant to divulge its existence, and the secrecy complicated the Libyan response and the eventual American evacuation, according to Libyan security officials.

More:

The State Department chose to maintain only limited security in Benghazi, Libya, despite months of sporadic attacks there on U.S. and other Western missions.

That is a scandal of the first order, which in any unbiased media environment would be the biggest story of the year and reason to demand a full explanation from the White House. Did Obama and his advisers incorrectly assess the ongoing threat of jihadists, lack sufficient intelligence on the ground in Libya (after chest-thumping about our leading-from-behind strategy in the war) and fail to grasp that blaming a video is only feeding into the mentality of the jihadists (i.e., the West is to blame for violence)?

Now, let’s see how the administration, either by mendacity or incompetence, put out a false story of the attacks, which is now shredding day by day.

The media understands fully that this story is a fiasco for Obama. That's why they won't report it.

In the old days, I think the media just sensed that they ought not cover some stories.

I don't think that's happening here. I think the relationship between the media and Obama is so close that he's directly said to them, more or less, "My presidency is at risk if you push this." And I think most of them have explicitly decided their job is actually to PROTECT OBAMA.

28 I go back and forth regarding what to do about media bias. There's no point arguing whether it exists. And there is really nothing I or we can do about it. Sure, we can boycott, but the bias persists.

I think what I'd like to see is the candidates really waging war against the media. I'd prefer to see Romney act more like Gingrich as to the media. Take them on. Call them out, explicitly. Wage war on them. With over 60% of people espousing distrust of the media, it's a winning argument.

There really is no downside to this. The media will be in the bag for Obama no matter what. Might as well turn it into something useful.

113 Ace: ..."The media understands fully that this story is a fiasco for Obama. That's why they won't report it."

And if it comes out, that Ambassador Stevens was Gay...then, it is even a bigger fiasco.

Even if they come out and say..."We didn't know he was gay"....that makes it worse.
It's their job to vett the people they pic for ambassadorships!

If they stationed a gay ambassador to a muslim country, then that is like setting him up as a sacrificial lamb.

Can you imagine the outrage, if the Bush State Department had sent a gay ambassador to a muslim country...that was then killed?
The leftist media would've been stroking it 24/7.

116 Okay, by that logic the State Department's security plan to fight of a Martian attack worked flawlessly too.

The problem is that the ambassador and his staff were murdered by islamo-nuts.

I guess the Martian attack was more foreseeable given that it was Libya.

In other words, the media is creating the spin for the White House, not the other way around. Not just wag the dog. The flea is doing the wagging.

For daytime, it would have to be crazy-ass bright.

99% chance you would run afoul of vehicle code or other laws. At the very least you would get "disturbing the peace" or other "distraction-related" tickets.

The big LED signs they put up near freeways here have been implicated in a number of night accidents but are still up.

The "shouty trucks" from about 10 years ago all disappeared, partly noise laws and partly the advertisers got nothing but complaints.

Sorry to be a debbie downer, I just don't see an upside.

This was staged and on purpose. The same thing with what's happening in the ME as well as everything else that's happened to cheapen and denigrate the image of the US around the world. And please don't think otherwise.

The SCOAMT and his junta want to destroy this country. We've got less than two months before the election and then the lame duck period. Lots of damage will be done. This nation is going to be tested on it's character every day for a very long time. Stay strong and resolute.

The Celebrator,
Click my name, for an article in Popular Mechanics about doing what you're talking about....setting it up from your car.

There are also some sites on the net, about doing that sort of thing....called "Digital Drive-In"...."Guerilla Drive-In"...."Outdoor Cinema"...."DIY Cinema Revival".

Even if all you want to do, is project a single Image...the tech is pretty much the same.

- Samurai Sword
- A musket
- Ninja throwing stars
- War hammar
- Daggar

263 @Beagle. Asteroid collision is disingenuous, no? I don't think Obama was supposed to protect the earth from asteroid collisions until his second term. Rising tides is another story which leads me to my next thought. Rising tides, check.

But shriners in tiny cars? (Cracking up over here.) Yes, I think that probably fell under the "be on the lookout for anything suspicious" clause of the security plan unless it were part of the July 4th parade in Benghazi. +1 in the success column.

Posted by: jgs at September 21, 2012 04:49 PM (fhY3d)

264 @toby928. I believe the administration has ruled out giant squid attack. Which means that, yes, it's time to start looking into giant squid attacks.
