State Department: No Protest Outside Benghazi Consulate Prior To Attack

Always the last to know ...

In a conference call with reporters Tuesday, two senior State Department officials gave a detailed accounting of the events that lead to the death of Amb. Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The officials said that prior to the massive attack on the Benghazi compound by dozens of militants carrying heavy weaponry, there was no unrest outside the walls of the compound and no protest that anyone inside the compound was aware of.

In fact, Stevens hosted a series of meetings on the compound throughout the day, ending with a meeting with a Turkish diplomat that began at 7:30 in the evening, and all was quiet in the area.

"The ambassador walked guests out at 8:30 or so; there was nobody on the street. Then at 9:40 they saw on the security cameras that there were armed men invading the compound," a senior State Department official said. "Everything is calm at 8:30 pm, there is nothing unusual. There had been nothing unusual during the day outside."

Meanwhile, the State Department denies they tried to link the Innocence of Muslims video to the attack.

You don't say. Well that makes Ben Howe's excellent video timeline even more interesting, doesn't it?

I hope Susan Rice is comfortable under large, yellow, diesel-powered vehicles.

4 There's a Reuter's video that needs to be attached here.

That's the nighttime video showing the RPGs and assault rifles ... and the empty streets.

They keep glossing over that video as it it's "Reports of no protest" or "Reports of heavy weapons."

It's a freaking video from an embed that was with the attackers.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The State Department said Tuesday it never concluded that the consulate attack in Libya stemmed from protests over an American-made video ridiculing Islam, raising further questions about why the Obama administration used that explanation for more than a week after assailants killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.
The revelation came as new documents suggested internal disagreement over appropriate levels of security before the attack, which occurred on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks on the U.S.

CIA won't be the bagmen on this one. The appointees at State are getting a lesson on dumping on central intel when they didn't earn the blame.

It looked like they figured the agency would just eat it in silence (no precious political careers to be damaged, don't you know). It also looks like they are learning just how wrong that play was.

69 I think there was some kind of dirty deal going down between the Obamas and the Libyans. Something went wrong. They had this video thing in the can to use if something went wrong. It went wrong-er than they thought, and they lost control of the situation.

The Administration slammed the phone down when the ambassador begged numerous times for added security. They had something in the works. Perhaps a staged kidnapping. Perhaps an arms deal. Something. And it spiraled out of control.

And Obama went to bed, and then he went to Vegas.

What else is out there that the CIA knows is coming and is trying to preemptively set the stage for a response of "We told State and POTUS and they did nothing". We know TFG rarely attends intel briefings. So what's in those briefings? What is coming down the pipe that the CIA wants to be sure that when POTUS starts whining about a catastrophic intelligence failure, the CIA can say fuck you, we told you and you ignored us?

What else is out there that the CIA knows is coming and is trying to preemptively set the stage for a response of "We told State and POTUS and they did nothing". We know TFG rarely attends intel briefings. So what's in those briefings? What is coming down the pipe that the CIA wants to be sure that when POTUS starts whining about a catastrophic intelligence failure, the CIA can say fuck you, we told you and you ignored us?

Yeah, Atc.
The whole reason for having 'intel briefings'...in person...is so that you can say things that shouldn't be put in print...much less put on a blackberry.

A 'written' intel briefing is a bad thing...for several reasons.

In the weeks, months, and years before the attack the MSM were waiting for Obama to take control of the narrative. They propped him up his entire first term.

The Obama campaign was floundering the whole term trying to find something good to talk about until they gave up and decided on Foreign Policy. Then, we get attacked and they come out with this absurd, doomed from the start cover story.

And the MSM bit so hard! They went full tilt on the most ludicrous cover story ever presented by and administration that I can recall.

I had to look this up. "too emotional" is what I'm seeing at Topsy. It backs up what you said.

Maybe Logan does have an emotional stake in this, but that doesn't mean her whole "opinion should be discounted". It just means her opinion should be treated as an... opinion, and juxtaposed against the facts - like any other opinion from any other standpoint.

So Marshall is doing ad-hominem, or rather ad-feminem like we'd expect from some drunken pig at the bar.

128 Hillary needs to be put under oath. How can State be admitting there were no protests now, yet she held press conferences (mulitple ones I think), including with Barky, to talk about the video. And who sent Susan Rice to the Sunday morning shows?

There is still a LOT being obfuscated. What was Stephens doing in Benghazi? What were the SEALS doing there (separately)?

Did the local security team sell them out to Al Queda? Did they fight or flee? Where are survivors from that night now and what do they have to say?

What about all the BS surrounding the FBI not being able to get to the site for 3 weeks.

Why was one of Barky's first moves to try to give Libya $150 million? (that is damning; who's he trying to pay off?)

Why would O/Hillary reduce security after repeated requests and security threats? It defies even extreme incompetence.

Ann's response in that thread was (roughly) okay, you wingnuts were right on the facts; but you wingnuts don't know how to talk to liberals and moderates, and you make us feel icky.

Which is arguably true. (Ace sometimes tells us this, too.)

But at the same time Ann doesn't know how to talk to conservatives. Her expectation is that she can just ignore the facts and do her blather without the facts, on gut feeling and on avoiding the ick. And when she's called on her crap, she gets the vapours and retreats to the fainting-couch.

Yes, conservatives get aggressive and annoyed when confronted with bullshit. The answer to that is to refine one's argument and to remove the bullshit. It is not, Professor Althouse, to whine about our "tone".

I was conceding Marshall's cheap shot for the sake of argument. I was saying that, even if Logan were emotionally involved, still Logan's facts and analysis should be viewed separately from Logan's emotional state. Marshall didn't refute any of Logan's facts and so Marshall's whole argument is ad-hominem fallacy.

I don't think so, the events happened way too fast for that kind of prepared strategy. Within 24 hours of the Benghazi attack the admin knew it was an Al Queda terrorist attack but they tried to hide that. The video was just a rushed, convenient excuse. Events were moving very fast and all the key people were extremely busy. If they want to attack the 1st A, this is not how they'd go about it.

If you're the President of the United States and your ambassador is
afraid for his life, and you reduce his security, and you ignore his
pleas for help, and when he is under attack and missing, you go to bed

do you really deserve to be President?

And
if you lie about it afterwards and say it was because of a riot over a
video, when there was no riot and it was really a terrorist attack
pre-planned and executed on the anniversary of 9-11

do you really deserve to be President?

What they could not hide from was the foreign press: Reuters, British Independent, even the Libyan press and administration. And Americans weren't having any of it. Then, some in the msm started defecting, like CNN. To add insult to injury Univision came out with their devastating, updated F and F report. The administration had to retract their story: their ignorant voting synchophants are the only ones in the world that believe them. They are going down in flames.

Still say we're going about this completely wrong.

Signing up in a foreign military is an immediate loss of American citizenship.

You don't need to prove "Intent to bomb this or that", you just need to ask/show "Were you a member of AQ (or specific AQ affiliate XYZ?)"

"Attended terrorist training camp in Pakistan -> Yes, duh."

So... do a short trial on exactly that series of attack. And the results -> citizenship revoked.

The second series of questions:
"Were you aware they've declared war on -us-?"
Which leads to: Jurisdiction->Military

As far as I know, we don't have any American citizens detained that wouldn't have their citizenship revoked by this approach.

I'm confused. I thought the fact that there were no demonstrations was established a week or so ago. Is the fact that this is coming from the State Department new?

I remember some pundit (Bill Whittle?) said, "The only demonstrations in Benghazi were by the people of Libya who afterward protested against the alleged perpetrators of the attack."

Hell - we all knew it was a terrorist attack within a couple of days, too. That came from R and D congressmen, both,who had been briefed about it.

The WH dreamed up a complete fabrication, with the story they told. It's not illegal, though, as far a I know, and neither is the shocking, seemingly willfulincompetence regarding the lack of security. But the voters - and theRomney campaign -should be told, and act accordingly. Obama gave us a blatant lie about this, just as he blatantly lied about "You didn't build that" being "out of context".

352 339: I also read a while ago and heard on Special REport that there were NO demonstrations in Benghazi, but that was not repeated by the MSM since it completely undermined the Obama/Clinton/Rice spin.

This newly released fact that things were so calm that Amb. Stevens was hosting meetings during the afternoon really unravels the coverup.
So horrible.

353 State vs Whitehouse vs CIA. This is going to get good. No way Hillary is going under the bus. Or is there?

354 No. It is not "the lifers" who are enemies. It is LEFTIST lifers who are enemies.


There are plenty of "good guys" in the bureaucracy. They just have one arm tied behind their backs in the form of that quaint notion called law and order.

One good purge would get rid of 90% of the problem. All those leaking assholes have violated the National Security Act in one form or another.

355 Romney is not going to purge any of those guys.

You get them in line with postings.

One of the things I read said he was in meeting until 8:30 pm and all was calm at that time. SHTF around 9:40 pm I think.

It's hard to see how she goes under the bus. It's also hard to see how she doesn't. Popcorn!

360 I have to say that I love Morons and 'ettes the most under Flaming Skull posts.

I don't think I have ever looked forward to CSPAN. How will they spin this?

So much is happening, so "fast and furiously" that I can barely keep up. This ship is taking on water fast, y'all.

The Won, King Putz I and Done, meanwhile, is fretting over Big Bird and practicing his jokes for his late night comedy gig, "Obarky's Oblivion" or "Barry's Buffoonery."

The fact that he thought he won the debate for 24 hours is unreal. But you could sort of tell in how Mooch strong-armed the dancing poodle off the stage that night. She was po'd and he was busy glad-handing the Romney family and waving to the crowd.

364 It was already being publicly reported by September 13th that there had been no protests in Benghazi before the assault.

http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2012/09/13/168415/no-protest-before-benghazi-attack.html

What's the right-wing story? That the White House engaged in a week long cover-up effort effort, based upon their initial interpretation of events?

The real story ought to be about Romney exploiting a developing international crisis by attacking the Cairo embassy staff, Obama, and the State Department, before he even had a clue what the hell was actually going on. Responsible members of his own party spoke out on that point, before they were quickly whipped back into line.

On the international stage, Romney is a total incompetent. How can people overlook the idiocy of proposing to give weapons capable of taking out "tanks helicopters and jets" to Syrian rebels who almost certainly have al Qaeda elements among them? "People who share our values?" The man doesn't have a clue who the Syrian rebels are.

Romney is the next war waiting to happen. How does he plan to pay for this one, with that 20 percent across the board tax cut? Republicans ran the most recent two wars on credit.

367 "Is the State Dept at war with the State Dept too?"

Obama raised UN ambassador to cabinet level, he basically created a new cabinet position and appointed Susan Rice to it to check Hillary at State. He didn't trust her, but he owed her for the famous donor list and her family's support. Hillary wanted the job, but her goals are sometimes at odds with the administration's. Rice probably started this.

368 Shouldn't there have been security/video cameras around the embassy? I'm sure there would've been...where is that footage?

Posted by: Hotbarrels at October 10, 2012 11:01 AM (SYCGl)

369 Not only was there no protest over the video; it got rave reviews in the Tripoli Times, and everyone was protesting outside the hungarian embassy demanding Holocaust museums and gay marriage.

That must be one of your own recurring deviant fantasies, since you're the one who thought of it.
