White House Officials Knew Libyan Attack was Terrorism within Two Hours

By Bobby Eberle

For weeks, many of us have been amazed at not only Barack Obama's continuing cover-up of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, but also with the media's unwillingness to pursue a story that reeks of scandal, lies, and incompetence. Now, new e-mails reveal that White House officials knew within hours that Americans were under siege by a terrorist organization, and nothing was done about it.

As reported by Reuters, "Officials at the White House and State Department were advised two hours after attackers assaulted the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for the attack, official emails show."

The emails, obtained by Reuters from government sources not connected with U.S. spy agencies or the State Department and who requested anonymity, specifically mention that the Libyan group called Ansar al-Sharia had asserted responsibility for the attacks.

The brief emails also show how U.S. diplomats described the attack, even as it was still under way, to Washington.

U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Benghazi assault, which President Barack Obama and other U.S. officials ultimately acknowledged was a "terrorist" attack carried out by militants with suspected links to al Qaeda affiliates or sympathizers.

Administration spokesmen, including White House spokesman Jay Carney, citing an unclassified assessment prepared by the CIA, maintained for days that the attacks likely were a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim film.

The Washington Times notes that one e-mail describing the terrorist organization was received within two hours of the start of the attack.

The White House's national security staff and officials at the State Department and FBI and in the U.S. military were informed within hours of last month's lethal attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that a local extremist group had claimed responsibility, according to State Department emails leaked to news outlets and posted on the Internet.

One email, sent at 6:07 p.m. Washington time, or about two hours after the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi had started, carried the subject line: "Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack."

Ansar al-Sharia, which means "supporters of Sharia" -- Islamic law -- in Arabic, is a name that analysts say networks of al Qaeda supporters in Libya, Tunisia and elsewhere have been using since the Arab Spring overthrew pro-Western dictators and roiled the region.

This is tragic to say the least. Ambassador Chris Stevens knew that al Qaeda activity was on the rise. He begged for more security... even on the day he died. All requests were ignored. That's a fact.

But now, with these e-mails, there are more disturbing questions. The obvious ones deserve repeating.

* EVERYONE in Obama's world knew this was a terrorist attack... not days later, but within hours. And yet, he perpetuated a lie -- that this was a spontaneous attack over an anti-Muslim Internet video -- for weeks. Why?

* He sent his U.N. Ambassador to all the TV shows. All she did was mention the video. Obama spoke of the video six times during his U.N. speech. He never mentioned it was a terrorist attack. Why? Why the cover up?

But there are other questions. If the attack was known, why not do something about it?

As Fox News reports, there was a Predator drone over the Benghazi compound. Officials knew what was going on. In addition, "the Pentagon said it moved a team of special operators from Central Europe to Sigonella, Italy -- about an hour flight from Libya. Why weren't they called in?

In a report from CBS News, a simple question is being asked, "Why didn't the military help?" Keep in mind that the attack went on for over seven hours.

Retired CIA officer Gary Berntsen believes help could have come much sooner. He commanded CIA counter-terrorism missions targeting Osama bin Laden and led the team that responded after bombings of the U.S. Embassy in East Africa.

"You find a way to make this happen," Berntsen says. "There isn't a plan for every single engagement. Sometimes you have to be able to make adjustments. They made zero adjustments in this. They stood and they watched and our people died."

The Pentagon says it did move a team of special operators from central Europe to the large Naval Air Station in Sigonella, Italy, but gave no other details. Sigonella is just an hour's flight from Libya. Other nearby bases include Aviano and Souda Bay. Military sources tell CBS News that resources at the three bases include fighter jets and Specter AC-130 gunships, which the sources say can be extremely effective in flying in and buzzing a crowd to disperse it.

Was Obama asleep at the wheel? Remember, the day after the attack, he was off to another fundraising event. It's clear there is a cover-up. This was not an attack spurred on by an Internet video. It was a terrorist act. So, why did Obama perpetuate a lie for so long? And as commander-in-chief (a phrase he loved throwing around in the third debate), why didn't he do anything to help?

    There was time to deploy a rapid response force from Italy just one hour away. I suppose Ozero was too occupied with campaigning to give a d**n. Probably trying to bone up on something witty to say on Letterman or planning another Hawaii vacation.
    He had to be preoccupied, criminally negligent, or just did not care.

      They actually knew about the attack 3-DAYS BEFORE. Ask the President of Libya…he stated it twice that the White House was warned 3 MONTHS before and again 3-DAYS BEFORE. The President of Libya made this statement, the second time, when he was in New York to attend the UN Summit Meeting…….WHY IS NO ONE REPORTING THIS!

      Here is the thing. And the above just is just more proof of the Obama Camp having ZERO care or concern to what happened.

      The other nations that had Consulates there did what in the SUMMER of 2012 — > CLOSED DOWN < – - In the SUMMER. Now if the RED CROSS sees the RED FLAGS of concern, how is it that the OBAMA Camp could not see the CLEAR WRITING ON THE WALL?

      Only one of three reasons:

      (Even though all other NATIONS knew this not to be true and put their people first!)
      … 3. ALL THE ABOVE.

      It is just sad that we had a President that was more concerned about “IDEALS” then American Human Lives. He was more concerned about his 2nd term in office, then our American Citizen’s well-being. No matter how you spin it, he put his RE-ELECTION over the needs of American Citizens. Otherwise he would have followed the RATIONAL – LOGICAL course of action and either – GOT THEM OUT and/or BEFFED UP SECURITY AND NOT DOWN GRADED IT.

      The Writing was on the wall. It only shows how bad a leader he is, when he actively chose to ignore it, for whatever reason. Common Sense would , no should have ruled here on the side of CAUTION AND CARE. He showed neither and then feigned it, after the fact.

      The entire episode speaks volumes regarding Obama’s policies and character. The most telling indicator of his execution of command as commander in chief and of his character is that he most likely froze at the point of early and clear knowledge of this Islamic attack on the United States of America. We are in mortal danger with this dangerous impersonator in charge.

      Did anyone watch Glenn Beck? He claims to have other emails that while Stevens was meeting with Turkish PM in the safe house all the exit doors were being watched, and Panetta was meeting with Obama while it was going down. You should watch Glenn Beck. Also, I have a question that I have not heard anyone ask? Don’t these guys have mobile phones? Why while under attack didn’t they make any phone calls? Why were they sending emails? Maybe they did both, but if I am being attacked my first reaction is not going to be to sign on my computer and send an email! Who knows what else they are covering up? Glenn Beck was saying that most likely the big cover up is because Obama and others could go to jail for treason. He thinks they were probably running guns to Al Qaeda and also to Syria through Turkey.

Wharever the reason, the “Commander-in-Chief didn’t answer the phone as four fellow American were being attacked and killed! Who do you trust indeed?!

    I know it may sound crazy. But I have thought and thought and thought about possible explanations that would justify in any way how The White House could ignore the danger, NOT even WARN them, Watch it happen, and NOT send assistance that was at the ready close by. The only thing that makes even remote sense is that for some reason, Obama maybe wanted the Ambassador out of the picture? Not even the President’s Crazed and desperate determination to win this election, even if he had to lie to hide the reality that terrorism is NOT on it’s way out would justify what they have done.

      Well, let’s see . . . suppose the guns used in the attack were actually some of those Obama provided to rebels attempting to overthrow Ghadaffi when he illegally and unConstitutionally intervened in that conflict on his own authority. Then suppose that those SAME rebels, using those SAME US-supplied guns were in on the attack on our embassy? I can see where he might have let that play out without intervening in hopes the truth would not come out, then LIED his a$$ off about it to prevent the truth getting out of yet ANOTHER gun-running disaster on his watch blowing up in our faces.

      There is nothing beyond the possibility when it
      comes to Obama. At every opportunity I have stated
      in blogs that this guy is not the president because
      he does not have an interest in this country. Just look
      at the NO-Show job he has done for 4 years. His world
      view, his parents, his background. He has no plans
      for this country other than tear it down and destroy it!
      What have the tax payers spent for him to campaign for
      4 years and live a life of a playboy celebrity. Jay
      Leno, Dave Letterman visits/appearances that say,
      “look at me, I’m sooo cool”. Just ask someone who knows
      about the costs of Air force One to shuttle him or
      Michelle around. He just drops in on Leno at a cost
      of millions to the tax payer.
      I think he needs to get the bill for abuse of the office

      The problem is the septic tank has overflowed into the oval office and the family quarters of the White House and its contents are in charge of our country right now! And yes, it has been my opinion that ODUMBER should have been brought up on charges of treason on numerous occasions before now–and this only proves it, as he really raised the ante on the treason scale with this Benghazi episode.

    I have read that the attack was witnessed live, on video cams. If this is true, is there anything that Team Obama cannot do, and get away scot-free? Doubt it.

    To most of the Media, this story does not follow Royal Sanctified Narrative for, The Agenda. What amazes me, is that there are so many loyal minions for Obama that could care less about this stunning, murder drenched crime. It is the same Media that vilified Nixon for what is now, just minor transgressions. Why? Nixon had once gone after the Communist Cabal operating quite freely in the US.

      It would do no good to put Obama and Clinton “under oath in a televised hearing”, as BOTH have proven they have no trouble lying on TV OR under oath. Remember Clinton was IMPEACHED for doing so, and the biggest lie of ALL was when that America-hating, lying Obama raised his hand and swore to “preserve protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”.

    Obama is trying to win an election with air travel and housing paid for while he tells the public of his greatness with nothing to back it up. He puts his opponent Romney down with statements he can’t back up and all of us are paying for it.
    Romney is stating facts about O that can be backed up and he has no free travel or lodging.

    Okay, he was notified, he ignored it and lied about it. Clinton and all the others who owe their jobs and careers to him are holding the party line. Criminally negligent. Correct me if I am wrong, but an attack on an American Embassy or any Embassy is an Act of War, as defined by all nations. Murder of an Ambassador is also taken as an Act of War.

    How many days were our Military and FBI people kept from OUR Embassy? By what Government? We were not allowed to secure the site of the murder of our Ambassador or of our Embassy? Until any one and everyone that wanted to could walk around and pick over the crime scene?

    ‘Never let a good crisis get away’ Does this admittedly paraphrased statement apply here? Tail Wagging the Dog, what were these people trying to get us, the people, to concentrate on while they played a fast shuffle some where else.

    Something to keep in mind here. Obama recently either signed into law, or issued an EO that says he can unilaterly take over everything under the guise of martial law if there is a “national emergency,” including suspending elections. I have been seeing reports lately of big buildups of US troops in the mediterrian region, supposedly taking part in exercises with British and Isreali forces. Plus there’s the rumors Obama is holding secret talks with Iran.

    By allowing these attacks to take place and then trying to divert attention like Obama has done, coupled with that mentioned above, could this be a buildup to some catastrophic (sp?) erupting that Obama could use as an excuse to declare an emergency here at home so he can step in and take complete control?

    “This was not an attack spurred on by an Internet video. It was a terrorist act. So, why did Obama perpetuate a lie for so long?”

    That last was of course a rhetorical question. Obama did not want to admit that his “leading from behind” had left Libya unable to control in-country, roving, heavily armed, al-Qaeda affiliated militias, much less provide the normal host country security for embassies, consulates and their personnel; he did not want to admit the first successful attack on US soil in 11 years and the first murder of a US ambassador in 33 years had happened on his watch; he did not want to admit, contrary to his campaign claims, that al-Qaeda was resurgent, instead of retreating, having spread from 9 to 30 countries during his time in office.

    None of this would fit his reelection “narrative” and we all know from the likes of David “Astroturf” Axelrod and other Team Obama members how important the frickin’ “narrative” is.

      Well, yes — and while he has been going all over the country bragging about how he (more or less singlehandedly) “got” Bin Laden and left Al Qaeda in ruins, it was just damned inconvenient to admit that not only is Al Qaeda NOT in ruins, it’s looking pretty damned healthy ALL OVER the Middle East, thanks to the Arab Spring chaos he thought was so wonderful. And he’d let any NUMBER of Americans die before he would admit he was wrong or had not lived up to his publicity, so he did what he always does, and has done since he started running for office in 2008–he LIED.

      Well, it wasn’t OPTIMAL for his re-election prospects, so he had to concoct some sort of story to distract from the truth that he knew damned well what was happening in Libya within a couple of hours after the attack started (not to mention all the warnings and pleas for added security for weeks BEFORE the attack), but (a) he did not give a DAMN about the ambassador or anybody else in the embassy because he didn’t see how it would matter to his re-election agenda and (b)he was simply too busy raising funds and campaigning to work this low-priority item into his busy schedule of talk-show appearances on “The View”, “Letterman”, etc. What a disgusting, egomaniacal little PUKE we have for a POTUS!

      I think the reason goes much deeper, although I do agree wholeheartedly that BO is a mammoth megalomaniac. I believe that he has had one purpose from day one and that is to destroy America. He doesn’t really try to hide it. Even in his “memoirs” he talks about his experiences with various marxists and communists–and his admiration for these people. There can be no other explanation. I believe that he sides with the radical extremist muslims and wants to destroy us. He has a spurious background at the very least, and is probably an atheist. His muslim-ness is purely political. Where is Joe McCarthy when you need him, eh? I have to say that I see absolutely NOTHING redeemable in this poor excuse of a man. Even Klinton was more palatable. (BLECH! What was I thinking???)

    If ODUMBER is allowed to skate away from this scott-free like he does all his other lies and misdeeds, then this country is farther gone than I thought. This is, at the very LEAST, criminal malfeasance in a Commander-In-Chief whose responsibility it is to make sure embassies are safe. He stood by and did NOTHING to prevent a 9/11 attack, much less come to the aid of our beleagured people in the embassy AFTER it was attacked, because he was too busy fund-raising and campaigning and cares for NOTHING except himself, in any case. And to make matters worse, he then LIED in an attempt to cover up his total lack of action, and apparently most of the media are OK with that, because they have been HELPING HIM LIE. But four Americans DIED for his incompetence, and he needs to be held accountable for that and for the way he has lied to the American people about this whole sorry episode, and so should the so-called journalists who apparently are so enamoured of their Communist prince that they would embrace ANY lie or high treason to try to keep him in power. Have these people no SHAME at all?

    That said, who is going to hold him accountable? The gutless wonders in Congress who have sat mutely by while he usurped one Constitutional Congressional power after another away from them? The “Justice” Dept, which has become decidedly UN-just under the incompetent leadership of Obamaclone Holder? The ONLY way we can hold this worthless, preening, lying PUKE accountable for his part (yes, HIS PART) in the murder of our embassy staff in Benghazi is to vote his sorry A$$ out of the office and throw him and all his radical friends the hell OUT of our government. Enough is ENOUGH. Is anybody ELSE as sick of these America-hating, lying POSERS as I am?

    WE ARE LEADERLESS. It’s unfortunate that loyal, patriotic people including all of our military have to die with no one with any guts in charge in Washington. Even those republicans who sit by idly. No one willing to take responsibility and MAN UP to anything in this administration (especially the whitehouse).

      I believe this is more on the level of an utter lack of competence. Ineptitude has been the hallmark of this admninistration. I think a Marine Corps PFC could have made a better call than this president and would likely have been more effective in dealing with it. The mission in Benghazi had been literally begging for help and their pleas were ignored. In my opinion, this amounts to gross dereliction and depraved indifference. But then to lie about it, to create some complete fairy tale about a spontaneous demonstration that never happened, that is criminal.

    Obama has many good reasons not to do anything. 1. He was counting campaign contributions and couldn’t be disturbed or he would lose his count. 2. He was in the middle of explaining a difficult issue in one of his daughter’s homework assignments and couldn’t be disturbed. 3. He was in the final decision-making phase on the $3.5 million mansion he is buying in Hawaii and negotiations were at a critical point. Couldn’t be disturbed. 4. He had left a voice message on Hilary’s phone advising that a State Dept Libyan issue required her advice and was awaiting her response.

    Should I keep going?

    How about this? 5. He was waiting for Egyptian President and Muslim Brotherhood pal Mohammed Morsi to advise him on how to frame his reponse in the form of an apology to Islamo-fascists for murdering Americans.

    That would be much more to the point.

    Doesn’t everyone know that Obama’s sleep / dream time is when he gets his greatest inspiration on how to handle the economy, confront al Qaeda, solve the Deficit, perfect his tax program, add 10 million jobs, solve racial discord in America ( and around the world), achieve perfect equality between men and women, decide how to revamp America’s infrastructure as well as a whole host of critical issues for Americans? He cannot be disturbed from his sleep / dream time or America would suffer immeasurably.

    Didn’t you read “Dreams From My Father”?

    After Bengazi, the Democrats from Hilary to ?? ( is there anyone else? ) have no one who can run in 2016 against Mitt. They have all been politically destroyed by Obama’s do-nothing then lie administration. And the litany of facts of how the US Government turned its back on Ambassador Stevens and others, are only going to get worst for Democrats.

    We had a UAV “drone” overhead, with real time intelligence! How many times in our history have we had this type of advantage in any type of terror attack? We can see all their forces, positions and assets in real time! There is never a better time for a rescue as when you have a drone overhead and know what you are getting into before the special forces arrive. Our special forces would have successfully rescued our Ambassador and the three other Americans and laid down a can of whoop *** on those terrorists.

    It’s time to throw out this administration of political liars and hacks that can care less about our Ambassador, our soldiers, our citizens! Of course this case is so beyond the pale with the made up childlike lies that a video caused the attack, that you really have to wonder if the administration wanted these Americans dead, and all the secret documents in the compound removed and/or destroyed? Is it just another government run gun running scheme gone bad? American’s die, Obama lies.

    I seriously doubt it was the Secretary of Defense that made the call to leave Americans to be killed and left behind; I suspect the call to allow Americans to be abandoned and killed was from the Obama campaign, Obama himself, possibly Axelrod or Jarret. Just bury the story and the facts until after the election is their goal.

    Hello Everyone, I generally don’t like long posts, but I can’t help myself on this one, because it further displays the lies of the White House and Obama Admn.

    There are several things this article brings to light, which beg some questions:
    .) A group named after the Blind Sheikh has claimed responsibility before for a June assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. What did our intelligence sources know in advance for 3 months?
    2.) Relatives and supporters of the Blind Sheikh have been holding a sit-in next to the U.S. Embassy in Cairo “for months.” Knowing this, why was an apology issued by Obama on the US Embassy website in Egypt?
    3.) Egypt’s new Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, under pressure from leading Egyptian jihadists recently released from prison, vowed to push for his release. Was the US in secret negotiations and this the reason for the attack on our Embassy in Cairo?
    4.) “Two weeks ago” an audio recording by him urged holy war over an amateur anti-Islam film produced in the United States. Seems like the video was not a reason for the protest, and the video not known about, and brought to attention by the cover up. Did the lie about the video bring awareness to an otherwise unknown video that sparked violence and demonstrations around the world, putting 100′s, possibly 1000′S of Americans in danger?

    Why would Obama decide to send 250 million in emergency funds to Egypt after he said he Egypt is no longer an ally? As the father of the murdered Seal likened Obama’s handshake to a dead fish, something also smells fishy in Washington! I am really sick over our US government!

    CAIRO (AP) — The leader of al-Qaida has urged Muslims to kidnap Westerners to exchange for imprisoned jihadists, including a blind cleric serving a life sentence in the United States for a 1993 plot to blow up New York City landmarks.
    In an undated two-hour videotape posted this week on militant forums, the Egyptian-born jihadist Ayman al-Zawahri also urged support for Syria’s uprising and called for the implementation of Islamic Shariah law in Egypt.
    He said that abducting nationals of “countries waging wars on Muslims” is the only way to free “our captives, and Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman,” the Egyptian cleric.
    “This is the only language which they understand,” said al-Zawahri, appearing in his customary white turban and robe. “We will keep on seizing more … until we free our captives.”
    There was little clue to his whereabouts from the video, shot against a backdrop of brown curtains.
    He periodically releases video and audio statements. Two weeks ago, an audio recording by him urged holy war over an amateur anti-Islam film produced in the United States. He released a video on this year’s anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, claiming that his warriors “defeated America in Iraq”.
    Freeing Abdel-Rahman has become a rallying cause for Islamic militants and jihadists. A group named after him has claimed responsibility before for a June assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, which caused no casualties. It caused no casualties, but a bigger attack on Sept. 11 claimed lives of four Americans including the U.S. Ambassador in Libya Chris Stevens.
    Relatives and supporters of Abdel-Rahman have been holding a sit-in next to the U.S. Embassy in Cairo for months. Egypt’s new Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, under pressure from leading Egyptian jihadists recently released from prison, vowed to push for his release.
    Al-Zawahri appeared to be following Egypt’s debates over the country’s political future, as he called upon ultraconservative clerics in Egypt to ensure clear mention of Islamic Shariah law in the new constitution. Members of Egypt’s Salafi trend have been pushing the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group from which Morsi hails, to make the role of Shariah explicit. Liberals fear that the Islamist groups will insert language that can be used to curb freedom of expression and the rights of women and minorities.
    “Shariah must be the source of legislation … This must be stated,” Zawahri said. “This is the first step to cleanse the constitution and laws in order to implement Islamic Shariah law.”
    Egypt’s old constitution and most drafts of the new one would include some reference to “Shariah” or the “principles” of Shariah, but the exact phrasing could have a major effect on future court rulings on the constitutionality of laws.
    Al-Qaida leader also called on Muslims, especially in countries bordering Syria, to support the uprising there.
    “I urge Muslims everywhere … to rise up to support the brothers in Syria … to get rid of the cancerous criminal regime,” he said. “Syrian people have the right to defend themselves with all means.”
    The transformation of Syria’s uprising into an open war has given an opportunity to foreign fighters and extremists to play a larger role in the uprising, analysts say. President Bashar Assad’s regime has long blamed foreign “terrorists” for the country’s crisis.
    Al-Zawahri accused international community of indirectly approving the killing of Syrians.
    “The international community … is giving Assad a license to kill and one chance after the other to curb the Syrian revolution,” he said. “They are afraid of a government that seeks victory for Islam and Muslims.”
    Syria’s most Sunni rebels have received support from fellow Sunnis in the Gulf, while Assad’s regime, dominated by a Shiite offshoot sect, is allied with Shiite-led Iran.
