Breaking: After June Libyan Consulate Bombing Obama Administration Bragged: “Our Security Worked”

Islamic terrorists attacked the US embassy in Benghazi with rocket propelled grenades and machine gun fire on 9-11. The terrorists were reportedly led by Sufyan Ben Qumu, a former Gitmo detainee.

After the US Consulate in Benghazi was bombed in June the Obama Administration bragged, “Our security worked!”
Three months later terrorists slaughtered our ambassador.
The Wall Street Journal reported, via Draw and Strike:

State Department officials said security for the consulate was frequently reviewed and was deemed sufficient to counter what U.S. officials considered to be the most likely threat at the time: a limited hit-and-run attack with rocket-propelled grenades or improvised explosive devices, or IEDs.

There was a string of attacks in Benghazi in the months before Sept. 11, including a June 6 IED explosion outside the consulate compound. “These types of incidents were the ones that were our principal concerns,” a senior State Department official said. Based on the outcome of the June 6 attack, in which a perimeter wall was damaged but no Americans hurt, a second State Department official added: “Our security plan worked.”

But, that was before the consulate was torched and the ambassador murdered.
Now the administration says a detachment of US Marines could not have protected the consulate from the terrorist attack.
Breitbart reported:

The Obama administration’s shifting claims on what took place in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11 became more defiant yesterday when unnamed officials suggested that no amount of security would have mattered in Libya, not even a detachment of US Marines. This came on the same day the administration also admitted the assault was a terror attack not a protest gone wrong.

The claim came as part of an investigative report by CNN. Unnamed officials described a pattern of previous attacks in Benghazi as “Stand-off attacks with no follow up.” By contrast, the 9/11 attack was “a whole paradigm shift for which there was no prior intelligence and there was no context to put in related to what was going on.” In other words, we weren’t ready for an attack this big.

Perhaps to emphasize the scale of the attack, an official claimed that even if Marines had been on hand it might not have mattered “More guards, or even a Marine detachment, the officials maintained, could not have curbed the lethal attack.”

Funny how the state-run media has completely ignored this, huh?

  • Despicable, after they knew of previous attacks, one with an IED in June, the Obama admin still didn’t add more security in Libya, but now claims it wouldn’t have helped prevent the attack on 9/11??!! They will use any excuse to try to cover up their negligence&incompetence….I hope this event is the demise of the Obama administration. Anyone who cares about the lives and safety of Americans can NOT vote for this failed administration again! It is treason to do so, considering they support want to continue funding these barbaric countries that hate us.

    It would be fun to check what Obama Hussein Odinga was doing on June 5, 6 7 and 8 .

    It worked!

    Not one terrorist was killed in the attack! Only, our Ambassador and two other Americans were killed. That’s a solid B+ in my in my world!

    Let me be clear, I may flip-flop on issues but I always blame someone else!

    It may or many not have been a preplanned attack… depending on which way my polling numbers are going! I’ll say anything to save my crappy campaign!

    Axelrod has got the MSM spin machine working! Now, we can say for sure that not even a detachment of Marines could have curbed the lethal attack… just ask any Marine!

    This unnamed source hired by Davy Axelrod now has proven that I should never have exposed our Ambassador to such danger! Um, I cannot see the TelePrompter. Please adjust it. That’s better.

    I take that back, this unnamed source has now proven that my bowing, boot-licking and brown nosing works! I may get the Muslim vote! Just ask Hillary!

    Further, I don’t have time for security meetings! I have a sick campaign to run! And, it is getting worse by the day!

    If you like the way I let our Ambassadors get murdered and our embassies get torched then vote for me! I promise more of the same if I am reelected!

    And, this is super important! Send me $57,599.95 before midnight. My campaign is going broke! My bus is very expensive to fill up! Worse, my donor’s want their money back. Send me your money Now! Good day.

    “It worked!”

    Sounds a awful lot like what they said after the underwear bomber aboard that thar’ plane was thwarted – by PASSENGERS.

    This whitehouse seems to think that if they say something and repeat it and crow about it often enough, that’ll make it true. It won’t, but thankfully for them, the media backs them up every time. And those that aren’t paying close attention, the “undecided”, will swallow it.

    They’re the ones that will decide this election. Heaven help us all. I’m going to pray and pray HARD.

  • Militant Conservative

    Trying to be delicate.

    The Obama admin could not

    Even secure tha ambassadors

    anus from Muslim invasion.

    HUGE failure.

  • Joe Blow

    And the incompetent administration run by a total imcompetent president is probably going to be put back in office by a totally incompetetent voting public. How has the United States been so degraded to allow this to happen. Every thing they do turns to trash and by the leaders that get by with anything and lie openly in the process. How can more than 50% of the people think he should have more time to completely destroy the country and now it seems to allow the Muslims to help destroy the world.

  • SoLongSong

    Joe Blow: One answer: THE MEDIA and the near-dangerous tipping point of the percentage of people on the dole.

    HOWEVER, we’re not lost yet! I believe America Will Prevail.

  • SoLongSong

    Okay, so that’s TWO answers…

  • mg4us

    Not surprised that State run Media keeps silent. . need to get the word out. .Thanks Jim. . .

    Wether one was a Bush supporter or not (I had many issues with Papa and Son Bush and how they spent). . one thing is true, THERE WERE NO SUCCESSFUL EMBASSY ATTACKS under BUSH and after 9-11. . .NONE

    Think it might have to do with George attending briefings instead of flying ALL over. . .
    Or perhaps he put his country first?

    Remember in obama’s mind, ALL OF AMERICA is THE 1% while ROW is 99%!

    He wants to take us down a few notches . . and already doing that with increased unemployment and record high poverty. . .and lower US credit rating. . .

    See 2016:Obama’s America!. . .D’Souza exposed Obama’s dream that the US be downsized. . .

    Undoubtably Barry and Hillary! did not want to offend the terrorists by putting a Marine detachment in there, for fear they would be angry and attack the consulate.

    There is a State Department joke that diplomacy is the art of saying “Nice dog, nice dog,” until you can find a big rock. The truth is, diplomats are rock-averse. Diplomatic facilities are operated by people with zero security experience and a bias toward pacifism. I spent 1981 attached to a US Embassy in a Central American country at the height of their cvil war. It was maddening.

    Unlike Benghazi, we had a full compliment of Marines, but the country team were all very old school. For every security measure proposed, they found fatal flaws. We might offend the locals. Some faction might think we are taking sides. It could give the impression we do not trust the Junta to provide protection. (Well, yeah!)

    In late March, I was on the 3rd floor doing paperwork. A car stopped on the traffic circle in front of the building and fired an RPG at a window on the 4th floor where the Ambassador’s office was located. It detonated in his conference room directly over my head. No one was hurt. Local guards chased down the car, but the point was made. Threats were real. Patton was right, “A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.”

    In Hillary’s State Department, they think the radical islamists love us because we threw American friendly regimes in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Yemen under the bus. Well, they don’t. Spiking the ball over Osama just before 9/11 was 30% of a good idea. If you listen to the mob in Cairo, they were enraged by the UBL mission not some stupid video.

    Like it or not, we are at war with islam and have been for 800 years. The sooner we wake up to the fact, the fewer people we will lose.

    @MrGoodWrench, #6 – If you’d really like to know, Obama was doing fundraisers in San Francisco and Beverly Hills on June 6th. On June 7th, he flew to Las Vegas and talked about student loans. On the 8th, he went to a fundraiser in Washington, DC. Prior to those trips he had spent an estimated $30million on his travel in 2012.

    It’s despicable that the Obama admin knew there was an attack in June and didn’t add any more security. And given the prior attack, it’s all the more despicable they blamed this attack on that video.

    “More guards, or even a Marine detachment, the officials maintained, could not have curbed the lethal attack.”

    Yeah, because they don’t give them bullets …

  • BarbaraS

    I’m still wondering why our ambassador, withut any protection at all, was traveling around Libya by himself much less what he was doing at that consulate at the right time for him to murdered. I’ve seen reports that he lost his protection. How can that be? Usually the men protecting someone stick like glue to them. And other reports that he never had any. This administration is full of lies. This blood (like Brian Terry’s) is on their hands. Not that they care or anything.

  • Clafoutis

    A section of a recent, speculative theory put forth by an ‘Insider’ and posted on the Ulsterman Report is copied below. In the present, unacceptable vacuum, this makes as much sense as any other explanation. (See WHITE HOUSE INSIDER: ” Barack Obama – The Butcher of Benghazi.” for the entire discussion)

    ” . . . They are warned that Gadaffi’s departure will create more chaos in Libya and there are a sh-tload of weapons that will be unaccounted for. That is exactly what happens. Obama doesn’t give a sh-t. Too busy golfing. Doing the talk shows. Right? Telling Israel to go f-ck themselves. Dancing around Iran instead of punching them right in their f-cking face. Jarrett is Iranian. Jarrett has long ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. You would think, maybe for one f-cking second, enough people in the media would think maybe – just maybe…we should take a closer look at all this.

    What if that ambassador fella…what if he was killed by weapons sent there by Barack Obama? Just like you said in that off-handed way. And what if there are tens of thousands of those weapons being used by al Qaeda right now? Maybe on their way to the Israeli border? And not just guns ‘cause that’s not all we were sending into Libya you know. We’re talking some high powered take down an airliner kinda stuff.

    And take it a bit further. We did that. And we did it knowingly. We did it willingly. The Obama White House. Their hand picked stooges in the military, in State. They did that.

    Now let me go one little step more here. What if that ambassador…well…let’s say he came across certain information…damaging to the administration. Why is he flying into that consulate in Benghazi? Cover of night. No security precautions. Anti-Western sentiment reaching critical levels. It’s almost like he was trying to keep his whereabouts unknown to his own government. Right? And that bullsh-t little YouTube video thing? It had been out for…what – months? Nobody gave a sh-t about it. NOBODY.

    But then it is being used as the spark to start the fire? Who did that? Who would want to get those sand…get those people are riled up like that? And the administration – they are saying it was that video right out of the gate, right? Like it was a packaged excuse ready to go. Packaged means it was part of something bigger. A bigger plan, right? . . .”

    I would bet my last $20 that a mer 10 US Marines could have prevented this slaughter. It is an embarassment that the president woud have no faith in the strength of some of the finest Americans who ever lived – the worlds greatest fighting force. The obama administration should be ashamed.

  • l.barney

    O has been served another dish of crow

  • Patty

    Others are making fun of Obama, Obama is a real empty suit, if ever there was a word for it, he fits the bill. WE HAVE BE CONNED.

    Send this and other Video and speeches in Obama’s own words, to friends and relatives.

    Fitting video as Israel is being ignored and Middle East burns.

  • Skipper

    This picture says it all. It should be the only image displayed in a new Super PAC ad with the caption,
    “Obama was apprised of this 3 hours before…then he went to bed.”
