Document Released Showing Obama's Team Knew Immediately That Benghazi Was a "Direct Breaching" Terrorist Attack, and Was Not Even Conducted "Under the Cover of Protest"

I guess you assholes will embargo this too.

(The Blue Checkmark Mafia of smug, minor-league "journalists" thought this BENGHAZI crossword game was funny -- don't ask me to explain, I never understood it myself. I doubt they understood it either. They're monkeys and just repeat whatever they hear the other monkeys hooting.)

Judicial Watch got 54 pages of document -- the bombshell here being a transcript of a phone call conducted September 12, 2012, just one day after the attack, in which Hillary Henchman Patrick Kennedy admitted, no caveats, there was no "cover of protests" and that it was a "direct breaching attack" involving "medium" weight weapons which would require some pre-planning.

The transcript was contained in an email from Julie K. Bulgrin, the State Department Bureau of Legislative Affairs director for Global and Functional Affairs:

From: Bulgrin, Julie K.

Sent: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 7:55 PM

To: H_Egypt; Canedo, Denese; Lang, Alan; 'Rodriguez Miguel'; 'Arguelles, Adam'; 'Lundebergy, Greta'; 'Ortiz, Michael'; 'Lee Collin'; Pitkin, Douglas A; Maier, Christina A

Subject: Write up of U/S Kennedy Call with Hill re Libya

The call ended up starting around 6:30. Here are the raw notes.

***

Rob Carter -- was this an attack under the cover of a protest?

No, this was a direct breaching attack.

Do we have any ideas of who launched? Leads?

Some claims from someone who has never made threat before, but everyone is looking at this closely.

Do we believe coordinated w/Cairo?

Attack in Cairo was a demonstration. There were no weapons shown or used. A few cans of spray paint.

Note he's specifically distinguishing this from the Cairo protests, which were in fact protests.


The call notes also detail that Amb. Stevens got of the compound, but "collapsed" and was taken to the hospital. Kennedy also said that it was his personal opinion that the attack "was semi-complex."

When asked why no Americans troops were inserted, Kennedy responded that "the entire thing lasted approximately 4.5 hours. No US forces within time to get there." (This was false, troops were available and could have arrived in time to provide support during the second attack on the CIA annex, which according to Kennedy, was assaulted by 100 attackers.)

As we know from the name of the movie, the full attack lasted 13 hours, and the two heroes killed died in the final hours of it.

10 I wish Benghazi had sunk, not only Obama's presidency, but also Hillary's candidacy.

It didn't. The Left obviously didn't care. The middle of the country could have been persuaded if the media had done it's blanket coverage it does for things that damage Republicans, but the media didn't care either.

Fast and Furious should have had the same effect.

The worst thing that can happen now is Obama's biographers being unable to avoid his lying to the American people, but even that isn't going to happen. This is going to be akin to FDR's imprisoning of Japanese Americans.

It's also a pretty blatant bull shit of a reason to excuse why no troops were sent. You had no fucking clue how long it was going to last. What if it had been gone on for 18 hours? Or 2 days? They're attempting to shrink the time frame to explain the refusal to mount an operation, which is all after the fact justification.

Anything Trump does, or doesn't do, or never does, is enough to call for an endless process of destruction, because he is outside the system and threatens it.

As always, it's instructive to note that Frau Gruppencankles and the State Department didn't leave 4 Americans to die in Benghazi. They left 40 or 50 Americans to die, mostly State Department employees, you know, Deep State diplomat types.

The only reason those 40-50 people didn't die is because of the courage of a few hard men who had to disobey orders so that they could defend those Americans.

Yes.

It's bad enough Hillary and Obama were totes OK sacrificing one of their Ambassadors to save their careers, but they were also OK with leaving 40 or so Americans to terrorist forces - and weirdly - managing to watch this unfold for hours and hours via drone, while they begged for air support and marked targets.

The difference is for the past 8 years the government was actually in the hands of the maniacs hurling the Molotov cocktails in the 60s - Bill Ayers, e.g.. And now, cadres of them are entrenched in every department of the government. John Brennan was not only a Commie sympathizer but is a Muslim convert. The director of the CIA.

So, in some respects, I think they are potentially more dangerous now than the were nearly 50 years ago.

It sure looks from physical evidence on the battlefield as though TOW missiles were part of the mix.

158 You know what chaps my ass most about Benghazi? They lied purely for political expediency. Not to protect some staffer or crony, but rather to make certain that the 2012 election would turn out the way that they wanted it to turn out.

Here's the thing: people make tough calls all the time and many times that call turns out wrong. If they'd come out and said "This was a terrorist attack, but we were sadly wrong about how much time we had to respond", I wouldn't have been so angry. But no, they had to run Rice out on every effing Sunday talk show to talk about a pretty much unknown YouTube video and Hillary had the gall to tell a grieving mother that "Hey, we got that video guy", all to make sure that Barry didn't suffer where it counted most: in the voting booth.

I don't blame the average citizen for not knowing how big of deal Benghazi was. After all, it's not like the media bothered to tell them about it. There were more important things to discuss, such as whether or not Romney gave a woman cancer. But I do blame the entirety of the Left for lying about this for 4+ years. Fuck them. Fuck them all.

The difference is for the past 8 years the government was actually in the hands of the maniacs hurling the Molotov cocktails in the 60s - Bill Ayers, e.g.. And now, cadres of them are entrenched in every department of the government. John Brennan was not only a Commie sympathizer but is a Muslim convert. The director of the CIA.

So, in some respects, I think they are potentially more dangerous now than the were nearly 50 years ago.

2012=1964
President defeats GOP nominee that has a religion that the media plays up as "different" (Yes, Goldwater was Episcopalian, but they pointed out his father being Jewish) that was endorsed by the KKK

2016=1968
The new Democrat party savior is on the way but is upset by that weird looking Republican fellow even after all the protesters at the GOP convention in a city that is located on the shores of one of the Great Lakes.

Neither of these really explains the pre-sighted mortars. But the Administration really didn't want us going with answer C: "Or was it because al Qaeda isn't so dead yet, knew we were coming, and planned and executed an attack?"

As always, it's instructive to note that Frau Gruppencankles and the State Department didn't leave 4 Americans to die in Benghazi. They left 40 or 50 Americans to die, mostly State Department employees, you know, Deep State diplomat types.

The only reason those 40-50 people didn't die is because of the courage of a few hard men who had to disobey orders so that they could defend those Americans.

This, plus Polliwog's comment upthread, with attacks at seven or so embassies at one time. Children were being dragged out of the American School in Tunis and thrown onto buses to get them out before the rampaging hordes at the front of the school got to them.

The whole situation in 2012 was a travesty, because a bunch of lying crapweasels tried to get away with something, and it blew up spectacularly in their faces. And their way of handling it was blaming a video, foregoing help for any of these places, and being willing to let a lot of people die. Children included.

"Rumor that Trump will nominate Peter Kirsanow for Sec. of Labor Dept."



That would be so awesome for several reasons:



- Kirsanow is very sharp.

- Kirsanow, I learned only after reading him for years, is black, which will freak the left out.

- Have you seen that stache?

240 "Rumor that Trump will nominate Peter Kirsanow for Sec. of Labor Dept."

Kirsanow appeared before the Kagan confirmation hearings and criticized her in what's pretty sharp language for a Republican talking about a protected-class female Democrat.

243 Well Mnuchin was just sworn in on Monday. I doubt he will be around much longer.

He should be in jail but with all the other stuff on Trump's agenda I'd rather they focus on getting shit done rather than more hearings.

It was clear Comey was a dirty cop from his July 5 press conference when he lent his reputation to exonerate Hillary Clinton from prosecution for her crimes.

Judge Napolitano said Comey quickly scheduled the press conference to clear Hillary because lower level FBI agents were about to gain access to Hillary's health records to check her claims of can't remember because of head injury.

may turn out to be a timely wake-up call and a chance for a do-over.

Trump's a quick study. Good he learns the new rules of the game early on, learns how to deal with them and then how to use them against his enemies.

up about intelligence issues and the Presidential Daily Brief, according
to a new batch of her emails released Thursday by conservative

To judge by their record during the Obama years, they've already got that part about "The Commissar Vanishes" down pat.

Posted by: torquewrench at February 15, 2017 05:04 PM (noWW6)

257 The "there was no way to get troops there on time" line has always been BS. And a diversion. There never should have been any reason for Amb. Stevens to be traveling anywhere in a hot zone like Libya without significant US military protection on the ground there with him. They'd even cut way back on the security at the embassy in Tripoli, let alone their criminally negligent staffing at the Benghazi consulate.

Utter incompetence of the highest order.

259 The use of mortars was, I believe, reported almost immediately. Letting anyone with any familiarity with any of the relevant subjects know, with certainty, that this was a planned attack (as if the 9/11 date wasn't a 98% clincher, already).


Within a day or two, I think, a wire service report containing a very good interview with a witness - a foreign business guy who was in a hotel not far from the action - pretty much scotched any notion of a protest or disturbance. Nothing was seen or heard prior to the arrival of several elements of the attackers. It was silent, normal.


I always say that every aspect of O-care - from there being nothing like a crisis in uninsured, to the pathologies in health insurance being mainly exactly the kind crap in O-care, not their absence, to the pathetic presidential push/tour that became more farcical by the day, to the Roberts destruction of the SCOTUS' last bit of legitimacy, to the complicity of the corporate side and the indifference of those not immediately affected - was the thing that finally completely changed my assessment of the country.


But the Benghazi thing (again, almost every element) is the equivalent. The shock and alienation is richer if you're old enough to have been around for the last time a chief of mission was killed, and been involved in the field for many years.

This is why intelligence agencies must have oversight and be 100% under civilian control. Being a hawk does not mean destroying your own republic...Maybe Trump and others should rethink their views on the whole Snowden adventure. Perhaps a brief time in jail and then a pardon.

If he was still alive, he would have been in contact. He was a top of the line petroleum engineer, then he figured out he could take advantage of the opportunity to make money in supplying the operations. He spoke and wrote perfect English, which probably got him in trouble after the fall of Benghazi.

272 Hey J.J.

Crowley's injection was terrible, but it exposed Obama even more. Mitt never went back to the well, all he had to ask is "where were you?" Which we know, he went to bed early so he could jet off to Vegas.

Of course, the bullshit about "no ability to get forces in". Tier 1 elements in Italy and the Marines had a FAST platoon designated to AFRICOM in Rota, Spain. FAST is Fleet Anti-Terror Support Team. A 55-member platoon reinforced. Their primary mission is protecting diplomatic facilities or naval facilities. God knows how much aviation was available to conduct CAS. Obama went to bed.

Romney wanted to be Commander in Chief, but absolutely refused to fight for it.

278 From AP which had a reporter in Benghazi right after the attack.

"The witness accounts gathered by The Associated Press give a from-the-ground perspective for the sharply partisan debate in the U.S. over the attack that left U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead. They corroborate the conclusion largely reached by American officials that it was a planned militant assault. But they also suggest the militants may have used the film controversy as a cover for the attack."

And yes, militants named Rice, Clinton, and Obama did use the (ginned up by them) "film controversy as cover for" their attack on an electorally inconvenient reality.

Benghazi will be marked down by a History Department that is 99% for Obama as the result of a protest.
