Riots, Lies, and Videotape: Obama State Department Stonewalls Press

By Ivan Kenneally

After extraordinary derelictions of duty, a little misdirection here and some political spin there must seem like minor vices. Even as evidence mounts that the attack on the American embassy in Libya was premeditated, well-coordinated, and only possible given grotesquely inadequate security measures, the Obama administration continues to insist otherwise. Their preferred narrative is one that excludes any undue scrutiny of President Obama’s foreign policy, which has ambitiously managed to reduce the most powerful country in the world to comical irrelevance. The US is neither loved nor feared, only contempt remaining to be divided among friends and enemies alike.

And the evidence is compelling. Almost immediately after the attacks multiple unnamed American officials assessed them as well organized, tactical operations. As reported in these pages, the Libyan offensive was likely planned by various Al Qaeda affiliates responding to Ayman al-Zawahri’s order that revenge be exacted for the killing of a high ranking operative last June in Pakistan by an American drone. The violence in Cairo was almost certainly planned well in advance, probably organized by the terrorist group Gamaa Islamiyya, demanding the release of their spiritual leader, Sheikh Omar abdel Rahman from prison, currently serving a life sentence for his role in the World Trade Center bombing.

Now, Libyan President Mohammed Youssef El-Magariaf too believes the evidence clearly supports the view that the attacks were the result of intentional design:

“The way these perpetrators acted and moved — I think we, and they’re choosing the specific date for this so-called demonstration, I think we have no, this leaves us with no doubt that this was pre-planned, determined,” Magariaf said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Magariaf continued to explain that those culpable had likely been within Libya for months crafting the details of the assaults, had entered the country’s porous borders by way of multiple points of entry, and that many of them could claim Mali and Algeria as their points of departure.

However, US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice has directly contradicted President Magariaf’s interpretation, repeatedly refusing to acknowledge that any intelligence exists which supports either coordination or premeditation:

“Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo.”

Furthermore, Rice continued to pinpoint the Youtube video as the singular cause for the paroxysms of violence that engulfed both Cairo and Benghazi:

“In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated.”

And what about the presence of sophisticated weapons like grenade launchers? Magariaf, like so many American intelligence officials, has taken this as further substantiation of careful organization:

“…if you take into account the weapons used, like RPGs [rocket-propelled grenades] and other heavy weapons, it proves that it was preplanned. It’s a dirty act of revenge that has nothing to do with religion.”

Rice dismissed this as similarly inconclusive, still insisting that only a “small number of people” were primarily responsible for the eruption of violence:

” …as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons, weapons that … in the wake of the revolution in Libya … are quite common and accessible.”

In other words, what only appeared to numerous defense officials like a taut military exercise conducted by heavily armed soldiers was really an angry mob with easy access to heavy artillery. The obvious tactical choreography, the symbolic timing, the threats gathering well in advance of the attacks, are all summarily dismissed as the unfolding of chance. The official position of the Obama administration is now that the US is the victim of stupefyingly bad luck.

And our luck worsens by the day, as furious protests all over the world happen to randomly occur in the general vicinity of American embassies. In response to the suggestion that the feral demonstrations are borne out of animosity towards the US she countered that none of them should be rightly construed as an “expression of hostility in the broadest sense to the U.S. or its policies”. Rice’s job right now is not an enviable one.

As to charges that the security at the embassy in Cairo was subpar, she at least  conceded that it “obviously didn’t prove sufficient” to repel the attacks. However, her response then splinters down several inconsistent paths. First, there’s the “hey, give us a break, we just got there” defense:

“There are not Marines in every facility. That depends on the circumstances. That depends on the requirements,” Rice said. “Our presence in Tripoli, as in Benghazi, is relatively new, as you will recall. We’ve been back post-revolution only for a matter of months.”

At least in this statement, there is a tacit recognition of inadequate preparation. However, at other times she still insisted there was  a”substantial security presence” at the embassy and that they were well prepared: “We certainly are aware that Libya is a place where there have been increasingly some violent incidents.”

Keep in mind that reports have been circulating, particularly in the British press, that “credible information” anticipating the attacks as much as 48 hours in advance was available to the US, its inaction proof of a “continuing security breach”. According to The Independent, these reports were generated by senior US diplomatic officials.

And apparently warnings about the palsied security at the Libyan embassy has been documented for years. A congressionally chartered Commission on Wartime Contracting issued a warning back in 2009 that an excessive reliance upon low-bid contractors was undermining the overall quality of security being provided for the embassy in Libya. Further, the Diplomatic Security office, a department within the State Department, repeatedly warned that its insufficient funding jeopardized embassy security. Despite all this, a senior American official stated, that in regard to Libyan Embassy Security, it was “similar to the way we are postured all over the world”. In other words, no special arrangement was made in response to the gathering threat.

And what of the now prevailing view that the US is a paper tiger, its extraordinary power undermined by a limping lack of will to lead in the international theater? In response to the suggestion that the global protests are symptoms of America’s waning influence Rice responded with feigned confusion: “We’re not impotent. We’re not even less popular”.

Clearly worried Rice’s public relations strategy, to pretend the painfully obvious is a matter of complex dispute, to counter facts and expert testimony with gossamer fairy tales, is failing. So now the State Department is shifting gears to simple stonewalling. Since the matter has been classified an “open investigation”, no new information will be forthcoming:

“I’m going to frustrate all of you, infinitely, by telling you that now that we have an open FBI investigation on the death of these four Americans, we are not going to be in a position to talk at all about what the U.S. government may or may not be learning about how any of this this happened — not who they were, not how it happened, not what happened to Ambassador Stevens, not any of it — until the Justice Department is ready to talk about the investigation that’s its got,” State Department spokeswoman Victorian Nuland told reporters late Friday afternoon. “So I’m going to send to the FBI for those kinds of questions and they’re probably not going to talk to you about it”.

Well, I suppose that’s that then.

    Along with the disasterous economy; now is unveiled the downright amateur Ozero and associates in foreign policy. The man is a novice and should never have been trusted with the reins of the ship of state. He has only one interest and that is to humiliate and humble the United States of America on the international scene. Our best and [really] only course of action is to vote this Impostor-in-Chief out of office in November. Given his inability to act in the best interests of our country and his downright neglect to honor his oath to defend and protect our nation; we must [as Clint Eastwood said] let him go. End his employment immediately.

      That’s the SCARY part … that and the electoral college that is party allegiance blinded. Now that he has “put the FBI on the case” … it’s another stall tactic to prevent others from seeing the truth … just like his birth certificate and school records. By the time the truth comes out (as if it ever will be ackowledged as such), the voters will have already voted.

      Jimmah Carter had the shah of Iran go into exile so the “peaceful” Ayatollah Khomeini could return from exile and peacefully lead the Iranians. In gratitude of course, the “peaceful” Islamist sacked our embassy, and held our citizens hostage for 444 days, while President Jimmah tried to make nice with them. Of course President Jimmah and the United States were held in contempt, because President Jimmah was perceived (correctly) by the Iranians, and Islamist’s as a wussy, and a weakling. And because of that they thumbed their collective noses at Jimmah and the US. After we elected a strong President, Ronald Reagan, our hostages were released… the very moment he was sworn in!

      And what was learned from this National humiliation? In a word: Nothing!

      When the “Arab Spring” (what a joke that term is) erupted in North Africa; President Jimmah Obama persuaded Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak to step down and allow “democratic” elections (another joke in that part of the world) to be held. The result? Mubarak is dying in a prison hospital, the Islamist under the guise of the Muslim Brotherhood, have taken over, the country is in turmoil with rioters calling for the destruction of the US, and attacking our embassy.

      Meanwhile not content with that foreign policy disaster; Jimmah Obama doubles down in Libya. The Results? Qaddafi’s dead, the Islamist are in charge, our embassy attacked, our Ambassador and three other US citizens dead, and rioters are calling for the destruction of the US.

      Again not content to leave well enough alone; Jimmah Obama, doubles down again in Syrian, telling President Assad he must step down. Assad having the benefit of witnessing the demise of Mubarak and Qaddafi, refuses to go quietly into the night and his own death, and attempts to quell the unrest with force. This results in a full blown civil war with tens of thousands dead, and no good end in sight!

      Jimmah Obama is demanding that Iran quit working to produce nuclear weapons. Iran and the rest of the Islamic world, rightly sizing up Jimmah Obama as a wussy, and weakling, are thumbing their collective noses at Jimmah, and the US.

      And now the whole Islamic world is rioting, inflamed, and demanding the destruction of the US over the perceived slight of their “prophet” in some very poorly done film. And the response of our Government, and President Jimmah Obama? Beside’s apologizing to the lunatics, the filmmaker’s being investigated by the Federal, and LA County Governments, and… President Jimmah, and VP (Heaven help us) Joe Biden are denigrating Romney and Ryan’s foreign policy expertise! In a sense, maybe Jimmah and Joe are correct; How many people are capable of setting a large part of the world afire, and calling for, literally, our collective heads? That’s taken some doing, but Jimmah Obama’s managed to pull it off!

      What to do now? How do we put out the fires, now that we’ve gotten rid of the leaders who, while being authoritarian, at least kept the crazies, and fanatics in check, and while not loving us, at least tolerated us, and showed us a measure of respect because of our military strength?

      Short of truly visiting a real version of Hell upon their blighted lands, while turning their deserts into green glass slag, and incinerating the majority of their citizens, perhaps it’s time to try new leadership. A stronger leadership that will regain a measure of respect for us and our Nation again. At this point it sure can’t hurt, the damage’s been done. The fact is that the Islamic fascists will never love us, but as the old Roman quote said “Let them hate as long as they fear”! If we re-elect Jimmah Obama, we’ll never be respected, nor liked. And everyone of us had better be prepared for the storm that will ensue, God help us all!

As you’re watching him do something stupid behind the curtain, he’s yelling at you, “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!” I don’t think he realizes that we are getting information from all around the world and via several media sources. He can say to the MSM lapdogs, “Pay no attention to this incident” but we’re looking right at him doing something stupid. Does he takes us all for idiots??!

      Dennis, Obama is “AN” anti-Christ, but he is not “THE” anti-Christ. Anyone who disregards the word of God and opposes everything it teaches can definitely be labeled as an anti-Christ, but Obama does not meet the criteria outlined for the end-time Anti-Christ.

      A lot of people declared that Hitler was the anti-Christ, and I am sure the Jews were convinced of that, but as we know now it wasn’t the end and Hitler was not responsible for Armageddon bringing about the end of the world.

    To Use Hillary Clinton’s own words, listening to Obama the Liar requires “a willing suspension of disbelief”.

    America was attacked on 9/11/2012 by Islamic Terrorist in Libya, Egypt and later in other Islamic Governments. Obama LIED when he said it was NOT a Terrorist Attack.

    The facts are:
    We were warned 7 days in advance.
    We were attacked simultaneously on 3 fronts with RPGs, machine guns and heavy weapons.
    The attack was led by Islamic Terrorists.
    They chose 9/11 to rub our nose in their power.
    They were given power by our Muslim President.
    They were given a cover story about some lame “anti-Muslim” video that uses quotes right out of the Koran.
    Obama ordered our Marines defending our compounds to have NO Ammunition in their guns.
    Obama has shunned our Jewish Brothers and Sisters in Israel.

    Obama is a Liar, Traitor and Enemy of America.

    Hmmm, the Obama administration insists on something that is obviously been proven false no matter how much evidence mounts.. hmmm, where have I seen/heard this before? How ’bout the Birth Certicate, SSN, draft registration fraud charges? They’re still acting as though those documents are real – and/or that they’ve been shared with doc experts. All they showed is a PDF! Can a 17-year old show a PDF of driver’s license to buy beer? 50 doc experts provided affidavits that his Birth Certificate PDF is a fraud. Many said it was 100% certain that it is fraudulent. Same for SSN, same for Draft Registration. C’mon, this is par for the course for Team Oblama – it’s their standard operating procedure, just lie over and over and over, in the face of overwhelming evidence, lie more – and their naive moronic democrat followers will believe them, and the media will assist in selling their idiotic version of the story and rarely if ever question them.

    Seriously, those reporters, if they had any ***** (or felt like following their moral and ethical responsbility as journalists), would have stood up in unison and give Jay Carney the finger and walked out when he fed him that line about all this being spontaneous and caused by this video.

    Btw, have you seen that 14 min video? It’s confusing, amateur, and looks like a bad SNL sketch, shot with green screen and desert backgrounds dropped in. It’s pathetic. And I can’t tell what is going on or what is so bad about it. A military-like vehicle pulls up and some vandalism occurs, a woman is pushed down, torches are used to set fires. Looks like a typical day over there in those barbaric stone-age countries to me! What’s the fuss? It’s not like they did a documentary on Sharia law’s of honor killing one’s daughter, stoning a woman for having been a rape victim, or running over a child’s arm with a truck for punishment for stealing candy! Or expose that “little” less-than-peaceful part of their religion of peace that calls for the annihilation of all those non-believers! And even if it did – that’s what they believe. Would Catholics be upset if a video showed them as being against abortion?

    Obama should be tried for treason, as should everyone in democrat party. Traitors.

      Okay, so let’s suspend disbelief for a moment. If these heavy artillery are so readily available that every household can have a rocket launcher, shouldn’t we have beefed up embassy security to reflect that? Why is our security so poor that a small, unruly mob is able to kill a guarded official who supposedly had secret travel plans? If these small, unruly mobs are this well-organized, we are in even bigger trouble than if this was a pre-planned terror attack.

    The Left is so fond of conspiracy theories, let’s give them one: The video was produced by radical Islamists to provide an excuse for any violence they wanted to justify. The Israeli/Coptic Christian/whatever “supposed” creator was just a red herring so the worldwide jihadist movement could express outrage in their favorite way – violence against the West, especially the US. Sound as reasonable to me as Bush planned 9/11, Bush blew up the Twin Towers, Bush and Cheney steered Katrina to New Orleans, etc. etc. etc.

    Of course, the jihadists are now laughing themselves sick with how effective the whole thing has been as every member of the administration tries to turn the video into a fig leave to cover up their horrendous performance in the Middle East.

    Is it any wonder that the Obozo Administration’s first impulse was to poo-poo the idea that these attacks were a result of an anti-Islam “movie?” But then the Obozoites figured it looked better if they claimed they knew nothing of these events, that they weren’t planned, so it changed horses.

    These were well planned incursions, scheduled for 9/11 and well known to the Obozo Administration. The attacks make weak the arguments of anti-Bush clowns who say GW Bush knew of the WTC attacks and even if he didn’t he didn’t react fast enough or forcefully enough in front of that kindergarten class he was reading to.

    Obama’s foreign Policy? What would that be, I’ve seen no evidence of foreign policy, except of course for appeasement, bowing and scraping and much backside kissing of Islamic leaders.

    Given the intense preoccupation of the terrorists fascination with numbers, I’d say it had a good deal more to do with that. It was also intended to inflame the poor uneducated boobs in all those countries who have absolutely nothing in their lived but their devotion to, and their obsession with their (so called) religion. Oh yes and that would be, as they like to insist, “the religion of peace”. If what we have been seeing is a manifestation of peace, I would NOT like to see what they think would be a good demonstration of “unrest”!

    Let’s see. The economy is a disaster. Foreign policy is a disaster. National debt is a disaster. The jobless rate is a disaster. The deficit is a disaster. Gas prices up. Inflation starting to rise.

    Barack Hussein Obama is a historic disaster for America and the world so why is he holding his own in the polls???

    My guess is that 90% of the polls are controlled and cooked by the Obamacrat media.

    Either that or more than half of America has ODed on stupid pills.

      “…Barack Hussein Obama is a historic disaster for America and the world so why is he holding his own in the polls???…”

      Why? His black skin is keeping him afloat. His skin color got him elected, it’s carried him through one policy disaster after another with no push-back from anyone, and unfortunately and to America’s great detriment, it may continue to carry him to victory over the election finish line. This is why a black man (who according to Joe is “clean and articulate”) was chosen many years ago to take down America. His handlers know Americans’ achilles heel is racism. We will do everything in our power – sell our mothers, sisters, sons – to avoid being accused of racism. It’s worse than death for us.

    BO and is admin has always been willing and prepared to throw anyone and everyone under the bus to cover their tracks and incompetence.

    For those who remained blinded by their love/lust for the annoited one, how is his policies of apolgizing and appeasement working out? With all the unrest and riots sprouting all over the world, can they categorically tell me that BO are making them love us more?? NO, if his policies have worked out these unrest would not have happened and because of his incompetency and arrogrant (no need to discuss daily intelligence briefings) 4 lives were lost!

    I cannot fathom what a glutton for punishment some voters are. They have been given so many opportunities to see what BO admin would be like and what four more yrs would be like and yet they continue with the “spousal abusal syndrome/mentality” (refusing to leave a lying and abusive spouse)

    Where are the comments on this thread defending Obama? They seem to have vanished?? Is it that this thread is not defendable and that they too do not believe? One word to the voters of Obama.. are you really sure that you will have the same country with an unleashed four years of God only knows what that man will do.. when if you vote for Romney you know you could put another Democrat back into the White in 2016 but KNOWING that there will still be an election. Are you ready for Sharia law?

    Look at the bright side. When it comes time to create a Presidential Library, The whole list of lifetime accomplishments will fit in one file cabinet drawer.
    Think about it:
    No school records;
    No Birth records;
    No accomplishments, unless you wish to consider the murder of Osama Bin Laden. That seems to be his only accomplishment, and every time he brags about it, Al Qaeda kills some more Americans.
    When President Theodore Roosevelt said to carry a big stick, I don’t think that he meant a #1 Wood!

    Any of the political polls are not believable. No sound economic plan to get this country out of the present recession. And now this. Anyone who votes this President another four years is clearly a non thinking moron. Susan Rice is just as big a joke as our President. Uncaring, unqualified, un-American. GEEZ!

    People will still vote for this fool for only one reason: he’s black. No, he’s not…he’s half black. Mommy was a white *****. get over it. Only an idiot would raise the Titanic so they run it into another iceberg. Give that some thought.

      With today’s spin doctors, we’d blame AGW for calving the iceberg the Titanic hit, which in turn would allow the media to blame GW Bush and our burning of coal, oil and NG.

    So is he just narcissistic, arrogant and stupid, with the stupidest administration ever?
    If he’s so almighty intelligent, then he knew exactly what he was doing by leaving the embassies unprotected on 9/11. Connect all of the other dots and he’s a traitor.
    A vote for Obama, in my view, is treason.

    Hey all:

    Thanks for all the interesting comments. The updated news looks even worse: the now heaping evidence that the events were planned in advance AND that the Obama administration were forewarned is really beyond reasonable dispute. Refusing to acknowledge what the Muslim world is well aware only makes us look weaker, and sort of ridiculous. Projecting this kind of vulnerability is a dangerous posture to take. We plan to run a lot more on this story as it unfolds this week.

    Best,

      Well, I for one am delighted to know that there’s another news source that will not continue bleating out that this uprising was caused by an insignificant video. When is the lamestream media going to change their tune away from that ditty? If Muslims all over the globe didn’t riot like this over the death of their leader, Osama, why would we expect them to riot over a silly video tape? Doesn’t make sense to me.

    IT’S OBAMA’S FAULT: The riots and killings in Libya is Obama’s fault. Obama helped destroy the secular government in Libya; he even used the US Air Force paid for with our tax dollars to destroy the secular government. The riots and killings happened in Libya because the government was unstable due to Obama.

    The secular governments Obama is destroying in Muslim countries will be replaced with more radical Islam governments that will come up against Israel and force Islam on the world.

    IRAN IS JIMMY CARTER’S FAULT: Carter helped destroy the secular government in Iran and now Iran is a threat to Israel and the world.

      I think they gave weapons to the opposition, and they turned out to be Al qaeda. they thought they could quietly remove the arms, and get away with it. They probably had a story line ready to use in case things went south. When things went south, they could not change the story. I think that is why the other two Seals were there to help with the mission.

    Treason pure and simple Obama kowtows to the Muslims yet again. Advancing the Muslim Brotherhood agenda yet again. It is bad enough that he has placed them inside of our Nations security system, the White House and the Office of the Secretary of State. And strangely soon after their inclusion all of the CIA’s agents in the Middle East were named, hunted down and killed.
    I want to know how in the world Muslim Brotherhood members passed any sort of security Clearance allowing them to participate inside our government? Obama and his administrations treasonous actions and seditious alliances and still our congress says nothing?
