State Department Official On Denials of Security: "The Taliban Is Inside the Building"

Just awful.

And remember, this is all to the Let a Smile Be Your Umbrella "strategy" -- the "normalization" strategy that postulates that if you disarm yourself, no armed attacker will kill you -- which sounds suspiciously like a notion that came directly from Obama.

but a terrorist attack?”

“I have just presented the facts as they come across,” responded
Lamb. “I am not making any judgments on my own, and I’m leaving that to
–”

Later on, Representative Sandy Adams (R., Fla.) said to Lamb, “As a
former law enforcement officer, I recognize there are certain dates that
law enforcement that across our great nation prepare for because we
believe they are significant to certain groups, one of which is
September 11, and it is significant to which group, Miss Lamb? Which
group would make that significant?”

Lamb said she wasn’t following Adams, and then this exchange occurred:

Adams: “Which terrorist group finds September 11 significant?”

Lamb: “I’m sure all terrorists groups –

Adams: “But mostly Al-Qaeda, would you not agree?”

Long pause

Adams: “Yes or no. If you don’t agree, say you don’t agree.”

Lamb: “Yes, I’m sure they do.”

118 Evening all,

I think it has been asked before, but why is Susan Rice making statements and talking to family members of the deceased diplomats from Benghazi?? She is the Ambassador to the U.N. That makes her subordinate to Sec State. She shouldn't be doing ANY of the things she has been doing, because A) they don't fall under the purview of UN ambassador, B) She is not the State Dept spokesperson, and C) she is not on any level with even under secretaries, much less Secretary of State.

So what the hell is going on? Is she the Obama SecState, in a deal worked out with Hillary? Does Hillary get the 7th floor office and the travel, while Susan Rice had the access to Obama? This smells to high heaven.

And as for security, sadly this is the State response to any security incident. They hate making host countries look bad, even if it endangers FSO's on the ground. But this is the absolute extreme case of their host country lovin'. I am completely disgusted.

And what's worse about all of this is that the lives of those Americans who died meant nothing to these assholes.

Will the damn republicans call the administration on this bullshit? Every damn republican should be talking about this colossal f*ckup of an administration with their local media and with whomever will listen.... call a f*cking press conference for Gods sake. Call these incompetents out on this!

Isn't there anyone that can get all the republicans on the same page with this? Everytime an issue comes up that enrages the democrats they are all on the same page with it and blabing to the media with the same damn talking points.... get the f*cking lead out of your asses republicans and start video conferencing or whatnot and have a concerted effort for once. This is the f*cking hill to die on! If we lose this election we most likely will never win one again.

And more to the point, Rice's not in the division that assigns embassy staff into places like Libya. Or, if she is, she shouldn't be. I'd expect the chain of command to be: embassy staff <- division head of the godforsaken Near East <- Hillary; completely separate from the branch of: UN bullshit artists <- division head of UN bullshit artists <- Hillary.

130 I watched the entire four hours. Mind blowing. Still processing the optics of only one guard for Ambassador Stevens, paid for with a $30/day food stipend.

And seeing Rep. Adams (FL) grill them. Heck, all of the GOP grilled them, but Rep Adams put them on the witness stand and stared them down. She asked them about the significance of 9/11. That Tootsie Lamb woman was very, very reluctant to admit that Al Qaeda was involved. It looked like it physically pained her (which was hard to tell as she is painful to look at for others,too). Other Congressmen brought up the reluctance and omission of the word "terrorism" in the written records (which did not meet the deadline for Issa).

I flat out love Congressman Issa, and I would not want to tick him off.

Cummings was an old, bald buffoon, yapping about the budget cuts and even threw in Romney's name for good measure.

Heads should roll, but we know they won't. The only thing we can do is keep this in the news the best we can and vote in droves on Nov. 6th.

Lt Col Wood is an American hero. Eric Nordstrom's testimony got stronger as the hearing progressed, and his line of the "Taliban in the room" left a mark.

I think that this testimony is going to loosen some tongues elsewhere. It is out there now. Youtube, the blogs, maybe even on TV and in the newspapers /sarc. I would hope that some of the usual leakers would tell their media stoolies, "you better run a story on this, otherwise you will look like a fool."

You're missing the point. The local security forces had not been paid in months. The only thing they were getting was the $30 stipend from the US.

Posted by: boulder hobo

Hey boulder!! I hope you are well and happy!!

You are correct, Ambassador UN has no input whatsoever with staffing for other embassies/divisions, etc. Frankly, no ambassador has much to say about staffing of positions-that lies with the career destruction officers within the geographical regions. So Amb Rice has absolutely no reason whatsoever to be making statements about the circumstance, unless it is brought up in a UN meeting, and she is speaking on the floor of the UN delegation.

Sec State is over everything. Head of the pyramid, so to speak. Undersecretaries for Management, Dip Security, etc fall directly under her (Lamb was probably put in place by Hillary, as she would have input into staffing those positions, although they usually come from career staff) Assistant and Associate secretaries fall under the Under secretaries, and so on. Ambassadors fall under the Undersecretaries for regions-Benghazi Consulate would be under NE division, North Africa. So yeah, Rice has no business making statements on this subject whatsoever. It baffles the hell out of me.

148 A more effective defense (than a smile) would be if they carried a towel. On the theory that if you wrap your head in it, because if you can't see Al Qaeda they can't can't see you. Plus it can be used by a CNN reporter to wipe your blood off the walls. With due gratitude and apologies to Douglas Adams.
