A report from UK’s The Independent is revealing some serious flaws at the top of our military command and what a full scale investigation might be under way. (Or at least should be).
Now this we know, that the attack on Ambassador Stevens was planned, based on American officials determination.
Ambassador Steven had recently left Libya on a trip to Germany, Austria and Sweden.
His return, though, was hasty and unplanned and was confidential.
Yep, that’s right, confidential.
Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.
Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".
Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups.
US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted.
Senior officials are increasingly convinced, however, that the ferocious nature of the Benghazi attack, in which rocket-propelled grenades were used, indicated it was not the result of spontaneous anger due to the video
Now, with all this said, could this tragedy have been avoided?I truly believe so!
It has been reported two days ago from the Breitbart website (public logs linked there) that the Whitehouse calendar shows no public record of Obama attending his daily intelligence briefing for 5 days prior to the attacks, which would have raised red flags about the coming attack warnings of all of our embassies in the middle east.
So it looks like our commander-n-chief was too damn busy with campaigning, raising money, golfing, or whatever else he does with his time as our “President”!!!
