Obama blames Benghazi deaths on security 'sloppiness'

By UPI Staff

UPI - President Obama blamed security "sloppiness" in the deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Libya as a new bipartisan Senate report faulted the White House.

Obama told the NBC News program "Meet the Press" he agreed with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's decision to carry out all 29 recommendations made Dec. 18 by an independent review board that was highly critical of the State Department for failing to identify and respond to security risks before four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi.

The recommendations by the five-member Accountability Review Board, led by retired U.S. Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering, included sending 225 additional U.S. Marine Corps guards to embassies and consulates and revamping how the State Department adjusts security at posts based on threat warnings.

"My message to the State Department has been very simple, and that is we're going to solve this," Obama told "Meet the Press" in a rare interview. "We're not going to be defensive about it. We're not going to pretend that this was not a problem. This was a huge problem, and we're going to implement every single recommendation that's been put forward."

Obama said a key review board finding -- that the State Department relied too heavily on local Libyan militias to safeguard the compound, leaving diplomats and other U.S. personnel highly vulnerable -- was similar to a finding in internal administration reviews.

"It confirms what we had already seen, based on some of our internal reviews. There was just some sloppiness, not intentional, in terms of how we secure embassies in areas where you essentially don't have governments that have a lot of capacity to protect those embassies," Obama said.

Four State Department officials were removed from their posts a day after the report was released.

The report, which criticized security at the diplomatic compound in Benghazi as "grossly inadequate," was to be followed Monday by a bipartisan Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee report on the assault.

The new report -- written by committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, Ind-Conn., and ranking member Susan Collins, R-Maine -- faulted the White House and Pentagon in addition to the State Department, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The report by the Senate's chief oversight committee -- the first bipartisan congressional investigation into the attack -- said there was no way the Defense and State departments could have rescued the Americans, with the evacuation plans they had, which the Journal said report characterized as irresponsibly inadequate.

Because the departments didn't know, for instance, how well U.S. agencies could respond to the Benghazi mission post in the event of a crisis, when the Pentagon mobilized after the attack, it was unable to respond effectively in a timely fashion, said the report, reviewed by the Journal Sunday.

Even if the Pentagon had planned more extensively, the response would still have probably been inadequate because the head of the U.S. military's Africa Command didn't know that roughly two dozen CIA personnel were stationed at an annex close to the Benghazi diplomatic post, Collins told the Journal.

That finding "came as a shock to me," she said.

The report also assailed Obama and other members of the administration for being "inconsistent" about whether the assault was a terrorist attack. The inconsistency "contributed to the confusion in the public discourse" about the attacks, the report said.

The report criticized Obama for giving differing statements about the attack -- referring to it indirectly in White House Rose Garden remarks Sept. 12 as an "act of terror" but then later that day declining in a television interview to characterize the attack.

On Sept. 18, Obama called the attackers "extremists and terrorists" in one TV interview. But days later, on another program, Obama was vaguer, saying an investigation was still under way, the report cited by the Journal said.

Obama made a similar statement about an investigation Sunday, telling "Meet the Press": "You know, with respect to who carried it out, that's an ongoing investigation. The FBI has sent individuals to Libya repeatedly. We have some very good leads, but this is not something that I'm going to be at liberty to talk about right now."

U.S. intelligence reports from the first hours after the attacks suggested they were carried out by militants tied to al-Qaida's North African affiliate and local groups seeking to follow al-Qaida.

      From what I have been reading those four are still at the dept, just awaiting reassignment or new training. They should have been fired. Too bad Hillary is afraid to testify. I bet she is afraid just like Susan Rice to name the president as the one who called the shots and let those men die. Especially if there was a gun deal going down.

    Valerie Jarrett lied, obama denied, and Americans denied.

    There is no excuse! Dozens of Americans were offered up for sacrifice to Valerie’s home boys, and obama’s muslim brothers.

    Fortunately brave American Seals disobeyed their orders and rescued most of the Americans obama and his Iranian operative (Valerie Jarrett) offered up to be raped, tortured and murdered.

    Just another example of incompetence and poor management within the government. There are few things that government does well and efficiently and that is where the saying “good enough for government work” comes from…as it is acknowledged by those close to government operations.

    What is bad about this is that precious lives were lost due to this incompetence and, per usual within the Obama administration, there is no real penalty for poor performance even when the consequences ended up ith the murder of an ambassador and three other brave Americans. Four members of the State Department have supposedly been removed from their jobs, but guess what, they were just moved to other positions with no downgrades or financial penalties when they should have either resigned or been fired.

    There are still questions as to why help was not sent to the consulate during the 7 hour attack. Why didn’t the President or someone else of authority send help? It is a national tragedy and embarrassment and the President and his staff should be ashamed of themselves. Yet, here again,, like the “Fast and Furious” debacle, the Obama administration refuses to admit they thoroughly screwed up and continues to “stiff arm” the Congressional investigation.

    The LIVs (Low Informed voters) who voted to re-elect Obama and his administration are also to blame for the failures of this administration and for giving them four more years of this incompetence.

      We have diplomatic people in about all countries. What we should have done is after the attacks on the other foreign embassies and the consulate is to have had all of our diplomats evacuate except for a small staff with a large American Marine security contingent at our main embassy in Triopli which was more defensible. Plus considering the other attacks and the upcoming date we should have had a military quick reaction force on standby in Europe or on a ship in the Med off N. Africa between Egypt and Libya.

      As for Obama, the State Department is his face and voice to other nations. He sets the policies. Therefore it’s unfathomable to think he didn’t know of or likely dictate the policies of keeping a low military profile at the consulate, in pulling US security teams out of the consulate, in using foreign security teams, in having drones overhead yet denying knowledge of why the event occurred, in not sending immediate aid, and in not insisting on immediate FBI access to the consulate to recover classified documents. In addition, the CIA operation was another Project Gunrunner, supplying weapons to al-Qaeda in Egypt to ship to the Syrian rebels. Likely it’s this operation he is trying to conceal.

      That means either Obama was grossly and possibly criminally incompetent, not merely negligent, or he was engaged in an operation not authorized by Congress. If the latter, the question arises, was supplying weapons covertly to al-Qaeda giving aid and comfort to the enemy? Does that constitute treason as defined by the Constitution?

Wasn’t it less than two months ago he was acting all butch on Susan Rice’s behalf… trying to goad McCain into some sort of old man brawl? I don’t think we are as stupid as the President needs us to be in order for his schemes to work.

      ….and SoS Clinton…heard a quick blip that now she is suffering with a supposed ‘blood clot’ due to her fall which was due to her flu? yeah…and purple pigs fly while sprinkling skittles over the population like happy pills.

      I don’t know who they think they are fooling… sure in the heck isn’t me. Shame on them all for school yard bully tactics and little school girl cry baby tactics as a way to get out of one of the worst perpetrated acts of terror on our own people by caveat of this administration!

      It’s not obama’s fault! It’s Valerie Jarretts! Everyone keeps missing that she has complete freedom to make “presidential” decisions on anything dealing with the Middle East and Muslims. She does what she wants and then tells obama what she did, and what he should say.

      It’s America’s fault for electing him and every socialist/democrat in office. It’s CONgress’s fault for not having the intestinal fortitude to do ANYthing.

      Google her. This is just one report http://beforeitsnews.com/obama-birthplace-controversy/2012/12/the-obama-timeline-can-it-all-be-coincidence-2452332.html

    The report claims “security sloppiness”, which seems to be factual, to a point. The top people in Wash. DC, including the president, (“we didn’t know, Biden said at the debate.”) Ah, but they did, the report says. So, not surprisingly, Biden was not truthful, as was his boss (certainly no surprise there), and ,it seems, because of their egregious errors, four J.s. lives were lost, AND what I believe is a cover-up began to shift blame away from Obama & the election. Unfortunately, this cover-up will continue until it dries up, with the help of the media, and blows away. The same as the infamous F & F. Blow enough smoke and the dumb people will forget – or even be aware – of these criminal actions on the part of this administration and our “leaders.” A dangerous world, for sure, with this bunch at the helm. Now, 12/31, comes another report that there was NO advance warning of trouble in Benghazi. BUT, the report says there was! Masters of cover-up, they are.

    This is from the guy who sent the UN ambassador to five Sunday morning TV shows to tell a story of a mob outraged by a video, all the while claiming he knew it was a terrorist attack.

    Have to wonder if he has consulted with Candy on this story, so she can bail him out when he has to admit he knew all along it was Presidential incompetence

    If this Benghazi incident had happened with a Republican in the white house, say George Bush or Ronald Reagan, you can bet every cent you have or ever will have that the democrats, the media and hollywood would all be screaming bloody murder and demanding his head on a plate. If it happened while Condoleezza Rice were Secretary of State, they’d be calling her names that would make the hottest rap artist cringe. Anything similar to Obama’s pontificating defense of his administration from Bush or Reagan would fall on their deaf ears like an un-noticed breeze blowing on the ears of a rabid wolf pack. What a pack of lying, disgusting, indecent, despicable hypocrites.

    What went wrong in Benghazi? Seals! Yup, it’s all their fault.

    You see obama, Valerie jarrett and their muslim brethren all had this great re-election scheme worked out. Here’s their plan.

    Obama’s orders; Attack the consulate and capture everyone. Rape, beat, torture, do what you will, just don’t kill them. Then just before the election I’ll negotiate a deal for their release, send you billions of tax dollars (that I’ll borrow) and come out the hero just before the election. This will cinch my victory.

    Unfortunately things went wrong. Brave American Navy Seals disobeyed Valerie Jarrett’s orders and went to the rescue of their fellow Americans.

    This infuriated obama’s muslim brothers so bad they started killing. Fortunately American heroes are smarter and better trained than obama’s muslim brotherhood buddies. They saved most of them.

    That of course screwed everything up, so they had to come up with some lie to try and cover it up. That’d be the video nobody saw. Once that was proven a lie, they decided to try and come up with any story that they knew nobody in CONgress or the media would dare challenge.

      You forgot two major components. Many believe that had Benghazi gone as you suggested it was supposed to that it was also an excuse to trade the Blind Sheik for the Ambassador. And Obama would have promised to al-Qaeda to continue his new Project Gunrunner of supplying them arms to go to the Syrian rebels.

      By the way, these two actions might be considered giving aid and comfort to the enemy if you catch my drift.

    Per Glen Beck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BT1yqBZQOTs
    What is happening in Benghazi is so far beyond Lying that it is staggering.

    This Ambassador was involved in running guns.
    And he was running guns to Al Qaeda in Libya.
    And he was running guns through Turkey into Syria.
    And whether it was a deal that went bad, I don’t know, but that is what happened.
    And the White House knew, and while everyone else was arguing whether it was the video tape or not we have been furthering the story. We have evidence that is staggering.
    We now have a memo posted from the Blaze, we now have a memo to the White House two hours after the attacks began. At 1 o’clock or 12:54 in the afternoon on September the 11th, the White House warned that there was watching the Benghazi Safe House. So you know, don’t let any member of the press get away with calling this an Embassy Safe house. It is not, it is a CIA Safe House. And why in one of the most dangerous parts of the world, on September 11th, when the Ambassador knows that he is under attack, the documents show that he wrote the night before and said, “Help me, there is trouble.” Why would he be at a CIA Safe House? What was he doing there? He was having dinner with the General Council of Turkey? Turkey is, fancies itself the Head of the Caliphate. The Turkish Ambassador and Barack Obama, it has been widely reported that that’s really his only real friend in foreign policy. That is the guy he called first when he won the Presidency, not, not England, not Israel, but the Turkish Ambassador. This guy, this guy, this guy is a Sharia Law Guy. Why was the General Council of Turkey meeting with our Ambassador at a CIA Safe House on September 11th?

    And here is where it gets strange. At 12:54 the White House in Emails to the Situation Room, the White House is alerted there are people watching our Safe House. The Ambassador and the Turkish General Council are in the Safe House having dinner. And there are people watching the exits, that’s what the memo says, “They are watching the exits.” “I don’t know if we are going to get out of here alive”. So we know that they know inside, this is serious. “We don’t kinow if we will get out of this one alive”. An hour after that the Turkish Ambassador leaves through the front door, in the front gate, unmolested. Now, you tell me, why was the Turkish Ambassador or the Turkish General Council was there.

    Why were they having dinner? Why was it so important on September 11th to go to the most dangerous city, into a CIA Safe House? An hour after he leaves, the fight begins. We now know that the White House sent the Dron.., the White House, somebody sent a Drone, so there was a live video feed of what was going on. They were watching it in the State Department, there watching it at the Pentagon. They are watching it at Langley and watching it in the Situation Room. At 5 o’clock in the afternoon, Leon Panetta has a meeting with the President of the United States. The first Email comes at 4:05. So, the Secretary of Defense arrives at the White House to have a meeting with the President 55 minutes after the situation room and everybody else gets an Email saying “In Libya, the Safe House is under attack”.

      That is three hours after the President got the first warning that somebody was watching the Safe House. S they all know that there is something going down there. At 4:05, the first Email comes in saying, “were under attack”. Leon Panetta arrives at the White House at 5 o’clock for a meeting with the President, the Vice President in the Oval Office.

      Now how they can have a Drone, the Secretary of Defense and an Ambassador under attack,
      and not say “What do you say we catch the 5:05 elevator downstairs to the situation room and watch what is going on, let’s get briefed in the situation room and find out what’s going on, they have all the information there.
      4:54 Washington time there is another report to the situation room, the Embassy in Tripoli is reported that firing at the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi is has stopped and the compound had been cleared said the response team was at the site attempting to locate missing personnel.
      At 6:07 that night at the situation room: attack update number two (2) Ansar Al-Sharia claims responsibility for the Benghazi attack. Ansar Al-Sharia is the group we were dealing with in Libya giving them guns. This is why the Whitehouse covered. Because our Ambassador was killed by a guy we were running guns to.
      And, we are still running guns today.
      Russia today is verifying today that US Stinger Missiles are in the hands of Syrian Rebels.
      The Syrian Rebels which are connected to Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. We also have a report from the New York Times that we are using the Muslim Brotherhood to arm the rebels in Syria.
      This President is on the wrong side. It is so Crystal Clear, you can at this point, you can begin to make a case for TREASON. But let’s just take it one step at a time.

      The President of the United States of America, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of State have all Lied to you. They have lied to you and said, “This might be a video, we don’t have all of the information, The information is still sketchy, confusing,
      NO, we now have the documents. We now have the documents that came into the situation room, saying, “There is an Attack, they are watching, then we have the documents, that we have a live video feed, in the Situation Room, so they could see that there was no protest. Then there are the documents and there are now 13, with new one there are now 13 documents saying it is a terrorist attack and here is the group that is doing it and they “Lied to You”.

      Why would they Lie to you?
      Why would they do that?
      You need to hear, who on “protective detail”? This is so important,
      who were the guys who were standing next to the Ambassador?
      Who were they?
      What were they doing in the area of Benghazi,
      Why did the spontaneous crowds have RPG’s and LASAR accurate mortar fire?
      Why was the most important person there left for dead when everybody else made it out?
      Who is this Ambassador?
      He travels with two or three security people.

      We were told first that they were Marines, now find out that they are Navy Seals.
      But when we did our investigation into one of the them, we found an interview of one of them he gave just before his death. And he said, he was “on an Intelligence Mission to round up dangerous weapons in the war-torn nation.” Ok, protective details, that is not what they do, they don’t go searching for shoulder fired missiles, they don’t go in the find Libyan Extremists, they don’t do that. They are to protect the Ambassador. Who does that is a former Navy Seal who is on a CIA mission.

      Now this isn’t stated in that interview, but it can clearly be inferred that they are rounding up any old weapons, not any old, but any old weapons that we provided. Remember, it was just last year that the Obama Administration declared that it would help the rebel forces in Libya and somebody brokered a deal in Benghazi to give them the weapons. Obama himself was considering supplying them.

      Here it is: video of Obama interview: Commentator “are you ruling out supplying them weapons?”
      Obozo, “I am not ruling it out but, also not ruling it in. We are making an assessment.”

      Beck says: “They ruled it in.”

      Obama ended up giving the Libyan rebels Aid $25,000,000, but with a restriction, “Don’t go buying bad weapons guys, this is just for food”. Uh-huh, sure. It had a “sticky note on it”. We have reported before that the Libyan rebels. We took them seriously, the White House didn’t and I remember saying for a long time, “We are Arming Al Qaeda”.

      It wasn’t long after that reports surfaced that we may be on the same side as Al Qaeda who wanted to get rid of Qaddafi just as badly, apparently, as we did. The Libyan rebel leader said that he had many members of Al Qaeda fighting on the front lines with him. We reported this to you, the rebel leader admitted that he himself fought against the United States in Afghanistan before being captured in 2002. We had him in custody and then we released him. So we know these people are not our friends and history has taught us this, yet we are told to believe that Ambassador Stevens in a story in the New York Times just loves and had a heart for the regular Libyan people. He was a regular guy, you know, OK, at times, you know according to the story he snuck into war-torn countries on cargo ships in the middle of the night, you know.

      Then he goes into really, really bad areas at night riding around in non-armored cars with CIA agents, and Oh, he was a teacher in the mountains of Morocco traveled around Europe a lot. Boy, that sure sounds like your typical pencil pusher diplomat doesn’t it? CIA is what it sounds like to me. And the security guys, let me say I have a couple of guys on my detail that have worked on the State Department before and when I said, “Hey, You guys, when, what about finding weapons and stuff”. They thought I was crazy and said, “That is not what you do when you are on a security detail.” Yeah, Yeah, but what if I tell you the guy that did it said, “That’s what he did guarding and they all stopped and looked and said,

      “Wait, wait, this is what the CIA Operatives do”. So, let me draw another hypothesis, Stevens not just your kindly friendly neighborhood Ambassador, he was the CIA weapons dealer in the region. He was the guy, I believe, help make that deal. Now that may not be right, but it is certainly more plausible than, oh, he just got caught up and he just wanted to go shake the hands of children in a really dangerous area in the middle of the night and he didn’t know that the people watched a crapily edited non-watched You Tube Video and it just erupted, really! The 9-11 thing it was just a coincidence, uh huh! OK, so here we are going up to an election, and the middle east is starting to melt down and the US government is needing to look into the missiles. Cause they don’t want any missiles, where did all of those missiles go? Got to find out who has them, because God forbid we find out who supplied them to the terrorists. So these guys go and they find a cache of surface-to-air missiles, maybe, I don’t know what happens, maybe they have to meet and they say no, no we meet with the guy that made the deal.

      These are the same missiles that we would supply during the revolution to take out the aircraft of Qaddafi. The agents are forced to call in the Ambassador , our CIA weapons dealer, and he flies in on short notice. He gets into an unmarked, unarmored car to not draw attention and he goes to meet with him. Somehow or another the meeting or something along the way goes south and they have to take him to the closest safe house, which ends up being a poorly secured consulate building that is brand new with bars on the window. Uh Huh, it is nothing more than a rental house, this is when Shaun Smith sends out the message. He doesn’t call the White House or the State Department because he is not a State Department guy, he has to send a message, so what does he do? He then goes Online to the Gaming Community and he goes online to a Gaming Website.

      He says people are surrounding us and taking pictures of the building. We are in a Safe House in Benghazi , hope we get out alive. Now, do you really believe this guy, a Navy Seal has an urge to do some online Gaming when people are watching the house and they are in trouble? No, CIA, message,
      Get us out of here! Everyone is reporting that Shawn Smith is posting this. His warning makes it painfully obvious that the attacks were planned, not to mention the powerful and precise nature of the attacks. So, which scenario do you think is more plausible? That a You tube video with only 40.000 views, was much lower than that, the 40,000 views was after the attack on 9-11. That that caused this spontaneous attack or the bad guys in Benghazi followed the Ambassador in were going to kill him and the CIA Agents.

      Then to draw them out they watched the exits and waited and then called their other buddies and said, “Go do a protest, we got to smoke them out, as George Bush used to say. No it is much more likely than a spontaneous ragtag protesters pulling off a high level power assault. Will the media press the Obama Administration on the mission to recover weapons in Libya? And can you imagine a scandal if it were to come out that Obama supplied the terrorists, our enemies with weapons to attack and kill our own embassy and our Ambassador. Can you imagine if it would come out that our State Department would actually negotiate with Egypt after a terrorist attack to release the “Blind Sheik”.

      Will the Media, the press, “Press” the Obama Administration on what appears to be a blatant “Cover-up”. What are they covering? Or will they allow it so Slide? Probably the Libya part is just going to have to continue to imagine, I mean, unless someone in the Main Stream Media finds, oh, I don’t know, a spine, and a desire for the Truth. Right now they don’t have it. You see I believe Americans need to know if their if their President is a “Crook” ( Ref Richard the dickhead Nixon’s speech).

      The Truth Lives Here, spread the message.

      Psalm 4:6a, “Many are asking, Who can… show us any good?” This is my mission! Rev Michelle Hopkins

      Glen Beck shows proof that The Obama Administration was smuggling weapons and Stinger Missiles to Al Qaeda/Ansar Al Sharia, our enemies that we are presently at war with. Isn’t that really COOL TREASON. SUPPLYING WEAPONS TO our ENEMIES THAT THE USA HAS BEEN AT WAR WITH FOR 20 YEARS OR MORE. Now, please tell me why that is not Treason, supplying arms to our enemies. These arms were used to Kill our Ambassador Chris Stevens and Shaun Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. And he is supplying them to the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda in Syria. The USA has spent 2 Trillion Dollars and 50,000 lives fighting those Evil Murderers. So Barry Soetoro (AKA Barack Obama) has neutralized that 20 year effort with one fell swoop of Treason.

    And the buck stops at the oval office. This president said so. He said he would take the blame for anything that happens on his watch. So why put the blame on the sloppiness of someone else when he is supposed to take the blame. Hypocritical is what I see. He is supposed to be totally responsible and not put the blame somewhere else. It is no different than when he sat in the room to watch Osama be killed. He was there , he knew. Same with Benghazi, he was there , he knew. He is to blame.

      “He said he would take the blame for anything that happens on his watch.”

      Uh….. When does that start?

      Isn’t one of the requirements of being top dog in the Democrat party to demonstrate one is a master at lying, blame shifting and guilt transference?

      I think they have a training program for that somewhere, don’t they?

      I mean, they must have. So many of them are such masters of those qualifications.

      What really gets my goat is the fact that the one stood there and challenged McCain and Graham to ‘come after me’ – to leave Susan Rice alone.

      It was most notable that he neglected to include the third senator, Senator Kelly Ayotte…of course that would mess up his narrative of angry white guys attacking a black woman since Senator Ayotte is a woman.

      SOOOOOOOOOOOOO? Where are they now?
