Email Shows Obama's State Department Rejecting Request of Security Team To Retain DC-3 at US Embassy in Libya

Obama's America

Fly the friendly skies of Libya Airlines, sh*t.

Via Jake Tapper @ABCNews

ABC News has obtained an internal State Department email from May 3, 2012, indicating that the State Department denied a request from the security team at the Embassy of Libya to retain a DC-3 airplane in the country to better conduct their duties.

Copied on the email was U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in a terrorist attack on the diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, Sept. 11, 2012, along with three other Americans. That attack has prompted questions about whether the diplomatic personnel in that country were provided with adequate security support.

No one has yet to argue that the DC-3 would have definitively made a difference for the four Americans killed that night. The security team in question, after all, left Libya in August

It was bad enough those in Benghazi had no quick transport out, but the Obama Administration rejected military intervention during the attack
The hour is 5 p.m., Sept. 11, Washington time, and the scene is an Oval Office meeting among President Obama, the secretary of defense, the national security adviser and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi has been under assault for roughly 90 minutes. Some 30 U.S. citizens are at mortal risk. The whereabouts of Ambassador Stevens are unknown.

What is uppermost on the minds of the president and his advisers? The safety of Americans, no doubt. So what are they prepared to do about it? Here is The Wall Street Journal's account of the meeting:

"There was no serious consideration at that hour of intervention with military force, officials said. Doing so without Libya's permission could represent a violation of sovereignty and inflame the situation, they said. Instead, the State Department reached out to the Libyan government to get reinforcements to the scene."

So it did. Yet the attack was far from over. After leaving the principal U.S. compound, the Americans retreated to a second, supposedly secret facility, which soon came under deadly mortar fire. Time to call in the troops?

Continued below the fold:

Some officials said the U.S. could also have sent aircraft to the scene as a 'show of force' to scare off the attackers," the Journal reported, noting that there's a U.S. air base just 450 miles away in Sicily. "State Department officials dismissed the suggestions as unrealistic. 'They would not have gotten there in two hours, four hours or six hours.'"

The U.S. security detail only left Benghazi at 8 a.m. on Sept. 12, more than 10 hours after the attacks began. A commercial jet liner can fly from D.C. to Benghazi in about the same time.

Obama did build this.

1 Wow! I just don't know what to think about this. I'm going to wait and see what jumps out of this mess. Did Obama have anything at all to do with it. Did he talk to someone about it. Did he write any E-mails concerning the situation. Did he even know about the request? Did the request come to his desk (or golf course) or did the memo stop somewhere down the line? Does the President even get memos from Embassies. This Benghazi office was a consulate. I love to blame things on Obama but before I do I like to be sure. I don't bum wrap people if I can help it. Show me the evidence.

4 As a zioshit traitor to my country I would appreciate it if you would not address me or my comments. As a rancher I'll feed the hogs but I don't roll in the mud with them.

And now we can wait for Moshe or some other zioshit filth to commence with the normal jewish suck em, fuck em in the ass, licking balls, yada, yada, yada. It's a semite thing. Your fellow semites, (the arabs) also do it. Not as much as the zioshits but since they both come from the same stock. Well, you know.

5 The only one mentioning all that shit is you Rooster. Apparently thats all you have on your mind since you do like to bum wrap people. You just did just that in your statement. As for filth, the only filth is coming out of your mouth as usual. Want some examples. Here they are. Zioshit traitor, zioshit filth, suck em, fuckem, ass etc. All your words. Seems like it's a Rooster thing. If I were you, I wouldn't live in a complain about anybody calling you anything when you run your mouth like a sewer.

6 And you are a lying piece of zioshit trash. Who in fact is the reason for all the trashy mouthed bullshit to start with. You are a traitor. A liar and a coward all rolled into one. You don't eat pork because it would be cannibalism. You are shit. You know it. That's why you act as you do. Much of the world hates jews because of jews like you. Sub human zioshit scum. There is no reason to allow filth like you to pollute the human gene pool. Continue on. You're day will come. Nature (and the Hitlers) have a way of deposing of trash like you. When you were born someone fucked with mother nature. It's not nice to fuck with mother nature. She will have her revenge.

7 You just proved my case, Grey. Keep ranting. You sound like a 5 year old having a temper tantrum and always blaming it on someone else.

Glory Be! Greyrooster has become one of us! I always thought Greyrooster was a zioshit traitor!

10 His Imperial Majesty Greyrooster has spoken. He deigns as too who will speak to him and on what topic. What an arrogant piece of shit he is. If he doesn't like us commoners speaking to him, he shouldn't bother coming here anymore. Otherwise us commoners will continue to say what we please and to whom we wish and he can just kiss our commoner ass's.

11 It is the official historian of the Jews, (Josef Kastein, in his History of the Jews, who gives the underlying reason for this barbaric custom. On page 173, he says, "According to the primeval Jewish view, the blood was the seat of the soul."

Thus it was not the heart which was the seat of the soul, according to the stone-age Jews, but the blood itself. They believed that by drinking the blood of a Christian victim who was perfect in every way, they could overcome their physical short comings and become as powerful as the intelligent civilized beings among whom they had formed their parasitic communities. Because of this belief, the Jews are known to have practiced drinking blood since they made their first appearance in history.

12 These people not only chew on babies dicks, then suck on them but they also have a history of drinking the blood of their betters. No other group in the history of the world has sunk to such depravity. These degenerates will go to any means as they attempt to be equal to normal people.

It won't happen. This any intelligent person who has dealt with them surely knows this. Just being around these creeps gives one an uneasy feeling. Mother nature speaking. I think I now understand why so many wish to get rid of them. It's natural.

Where the hell is Hitler when you need him?
