CHILLING!… State Dept. Admits ONLY ONE Security Member Was Guarding Ambassador Stevens During 9-11 Attack (Video)

Chilling. Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Programs Charlene Lamb testified at the House Oversight Committee Hearing today that only one security guard was with Ambassador Chris Stevens at the time of the attack on the evening of 9-11.

The security guard fled the smoke-filled building through a window and left the ambassador inside the building.
The ambassador was later found dead by looters and taken to the hospital where US authorities retrieved his body.

    Is that security guard still alive? Is he available to testify?

  • snap boy

    Wasn’t this Charlene Lamb responsible for nixing security for Ambassador Stevens? I don’t know how she can so coldly describe the results of her stupid decision.

    Chilling account.. but this seems at odds with other accounts…
    was the ambassador raped as reported?
    was he dragged through the streets?
    if so, how was his body found inside the embassy..?

    What about the bloody hand prints?

    Was the ambassador still in the “safe room”?

    What was the ambassador’s cause of death?

    When were the “dragged through the streets” photos taken?

    We’re still missing a few pieces from this jigsaw puzzle.. and might have a few pieces that don’t belong to this puzzle!

  • lizzy84

    Only one security guard was with Ambassador Chris Stevens..chilling, indeed. Considering the lying buffoons that are running the Country, I can’t believe that even this was available.

    This administration will bend over to everyone and anyone.

    still no mention of Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods??

    The White House claims two ex-SEALs killed in Libya were inept
    securityguards. The truth? They volunteered for duty and died
    heroes. But thatdoesn’t serve an Obama political purpose, now
    does it?


    “Woods and Doherty weren’t part of the detail, nor were they
    personally responsible for the ambassador’s security, but they
    stepped into the breach when the attacks occurred and their
    actions saved the lives of others,” an unnamed U.S. official told
    the Washington Guardian.

    So as the consulate was pummeled with mortar fire from an
    organized al-Qaida terrorist attack, the two men, with no
    preparation and no ground intelligence, just plain stepped
    forward without any obligation to do so, and died defending
    the U.S. after the non-U.S. contractors who were paid to do
    that ran away.

    more.. *sigh*


  • Robert

    The House hearing going on right now is painting a comprehensively devastating picture of incomptenece and malfeasance on the part of the Obama/Hillary operation in Libya.

  • Basil Duke

    I’m interested in learning more about Mr. Dougherty and Mr. Woods. Where were their bodies found? HOW did their actions save the lives of others? (I’m not disputing that they DID – but am sincerely curious about what kind of fight they were able to mount, and who they actually saved. How many other Americans were at the consulate, beyond Ambassador Stevens, Mr. Smith and the SEALS?) So many gaps and holes in this whole, sorry situation.

  • Beachluver

    And how many security people does Valerie Jarret have? Just askin’

    Yes, it is.

    Also ticking me off are the number of Demonrat reps who are using their time behind the mic to politicize this act of terrorism that took the lives of four Americans.

    Tell me, did Rep Eleanor Holmes (sure about the first name, not so sure of the last; older black woman with strong southern accent) on Committee Hearing record and in the form of a question, accuse Romney of accusing Americans of engaging in sabotage in Lybia?

  • Redwine

    She lies under oath! Perjury!
    “The ambassador was later found dead by looters and taken to the hospital where US authorities retrieved his body.”

    Amb. Stevens was NOT “found dead”. He was tortured, raped and murdered.

    What a miserable liar!

  • Robert

    I think it will become reasonable to consider American, and not local, military-force-provided protection at many diplomatic mission in the uncivilized countries.

  • snap boy

    And meanwhile Valeria Jarrett has Secret Service protection within the United States because of all those white terrorists…

  • AuntieMadder

    Seems to me that Col Nordstrom wants to spill his guts but is holding back due to concerns that there could be negative consequences to him – repercussions or backlash or whatever. Issa had better not leave Nordstrom with his a** hanging out. He should silently, privately – on the sly – do what’s necessary to keep Nordstrom in the States and where no Demonrat (aka Commie) henchmen can get to him. I’m serious.

  • Robert

    One of the Fox commentators asked an interesting question;

    What kind of, and when were, mobilizations of security personnel initiated on the day of the attack?

  • AuntieMadder

    Rep Cooper should be b*tch slapped.

  • HadEnough

    This is the same bitch that stated that she had never been to Libya yet could make the call to not beef up security from the comfort of her office………..bitch needs to get ut there in the real operational world before making such a call…….Odumbo lied and people died…….

    Lamb, Col Kennedy & all of those involved need to just tell the f*****g truth. Don’t hold back. Just answer the questions. Stop trying to protect their superiors and others higher on the food chain. Do they remember the name Van Jones? How about a Rev Wright? Madelyn Dunham? They need to remember those names and many more and the size of that bus they’re now under. They need to acknowledge that, if push comes to shove, their superiors will let them take the fall; they will not come to their rescue. So, just do the right thing. Tell the damned truth. Stevens and others are dead and not coming back but they may save his replacement and others.

  • Rmoney Voter

    “The security guard fled the smoke-filled building through a window and left the ambassador inside the building.”

    Technically, I think that means he had one guard until the attack, then he was left unguarded.

  • The sole security guard was a Libyan. He survived because he turned on the Ambassador and gave away his location at the safe house. I somehow doubt the timing of the adminstration’s current version of events, that he escaped after the safe house was on fire.. More likely he broke away before reaching the safe house.

    There were no Marine guards, normal for a diplomatic mission in a turbulent Islamic country. The spinnig goes on.

    oh yes, not to mention so many other things, namely the following..

    that alone, never mind along with all the other testimony,
    “we the people” still hear crickets, heh, not even.. *sigh*


  • AuntieMadder

    Someone needs to tell Patrick Kennedy that hope is not a strategy.

  • AuntieMadder

    @ #33 Corky Boyd: That’s what I caught earlier, a couple of hours ago, maybe, that the security guard was a US trained Libyan. Instead of providing security to Stevens, he took off. The rest was not said in the Hearing, so it must be your conclusion. And it makes sense.

  • Can not wait till Romney and Ryan go after Obie & and Bite Me about the house hearing investigating the Libya attack and all the lies being told, not to mention the murder of an American Ambassador and 3 service men.
    This corrupt administration just handed Romney the election, now run with it.
    Impeachment hearings should be held as soon as tomorrow.

    No protest before Benghazi attack, wounded Libyan guard says

    [A Libyan security guard who said he was at the U.S. consulate here
    when it was attacked Tuesday night has provided new evidence that
    the assault on the compound that left four Americans dead, including
    the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was a planned attack by armed Islamists
    and not the outgrowth of a protest over an online video that mocks
    Islam and its founder, the Prophet Muhammad.]

    September 14, 2012

    Source: This is how Islamists knew of secret U.S. safehouse

    [An Egyptian security official speaking to WND today said there
    is information about large-scale infiltration by al-Qaida and its
    affiliated Jihadia Salafiya groups within the Libyan security

    The claim comes amid speculation about how Islamists who targeted
    the U.S. mission in Libya seemed to have inside information about the
    movement of the American diplomats in the country as well as the
    location of a supposedly secret U.S. safehouse in Libya.

    I see the hand of Huma Abedin, above all, and others from the MB in all of this. Her closeness to Shrillary and activities in the State Dept. need to be investigated thoroughly and exposed.

    We need to reach out to thank Michele Bachmann, Louie Gohmert and the rest of the group for having the courage and insight to call out MB infiltration throughout our government.

  • snap boy

    I suggest we fill the ambassadorship to Libya with Charlene Lamb – same job, same level of security and we can lay bets how long she lasts.

  • if there was a tea party in lybia then the state dept. would have supplied a battalion of marines to protect the embassy from those terrorists.

  • Fred

    Obama should give himself the same level of security he gave the embassy.

  • This pathetic “president” needs to go back to doing what he does best — “organizing communities” in violence-laden Chicago and partying with Jay Z.

  • William Brohinsky

    This still makes no sense to me.

    A week or so after the riots, NPR and the other liberal media heads were playing a recording which they claimed was authenticated, supposedly made by a looter, which they said documented the people rummaging in the Embassy finding the Ambassador, and cheering when they dug him out and found he was still alive. And yet, now we’re told that he was found dead by the looters.

    Anyone want to man up and admit that the recording was a fake? Or answer how the Ambassador was found alive by the looters, then dead by the looters, without him being personally killed by the looters or some such other present party?

    ‘Cause this doesn’t look like the media has done any better a job of reporting the truth than the Obama administration.

    The term “disgusting” needs a new definition. Or how about morally deficient and depraved? They’re setting new standards. Treason? Obama threw our ambassador under the bus and Hillary turned a blind eye with one eye still on her “legacy.”

    They’re murderers.

  • traitors! Hang them all!

    This just keeps going on & on! Ft HOOD 13 soldiers gunned down one pregnant! Border agents gunned down with our OWN weapons supplied by Holder! And now this Ambassador knew something about OBAMA-probally tweeting secrets to the Taliban–since he wears the ring of ONE TRUE GOD ALLAH!–wow. These people hate Americans!! They do not care if they die–oour oil, our food, our jobs, our land and now he is giving away America to the UN??OMG.

    I read that Doherty and Woods were on a mission separate from guarding the Ambassador. They were not armed and had to pick up guns from the ground. They truly are heroes, much different from the lying cowards in the administration. Two brave American men gave up their lives with no hesitation to protect our Ambassador while their commander in chief just kept on fundraising so he can be more flexible after the election.

    Ambassador Stevens, (May His Soul Rest in Peace) had one security member. Valerie Jarrett has an entourage of Secret Service Agents to protect her. Something is seriously wrong with this picture. Someone needs to be locked up over this disgrace.

  • lizzytalorburton

    The only ones that are inept are Hillary Clinton and Obumblehead! I just don’t understand why Hillary Clinton was not fired and why Obama has not been impeached by now. These two have no regard for human life, not the Ambassador Stevens, the two Seals and the fourth male victim and as well as no regard for infants (abortion) and for seniors (death panels). It boggles my mind how anyone with any intelligence would vote for Obama with all his horrific policies that just hurt people and any human life there is, whether it be the above or even business people to coal miners and farmers too, and Catholics and Jews also. There is nobody this Obama has not hurt!!!!

  • lizzytalorburton

    What gets me now is that Hillary Clinton has been in hiding. She didn’t have the courage to go to the security investigation hearing, she sent her lackeys. Hillary Clinton hasn’t even had the courage to admit the wrong she has done by not protecting Ambassador Stevens and the others with as many marines and real bullets that would have saved them!!! Lamb said at the hearing today that Ambassador Stevens could never have been saved with more protection anyway, she said, and then I say, if thats the case, then the Ambassador and the seals and the other victim SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN THERE IF THEY COULDN’T HAVE BEEN PROTECTED!!!!
    How stupid is this Secretary of State and State Department and our so-called ‘President’???
