EMAIL TO WHITE HOUSE at 6:07 PM on 9-11: “Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack”

This email was sent to State Department officials, White House officials, Secret Service officials at 6:07 PM EST on 9-11.

This was at least the third email sent to the White House the evening of 9-11 on the Benghazi attack.

Barack Obama was meeting with his security team in the Oval Office that evening.
The email clearly blamed Al-Qaeda linked group Ansar al-Sharia for the attack on the US consulate.
This was before the lifeless body of Ambassador Stevens was dragged from the consulate ruins.

Not Optimal.

    Obama administration warned of possible
    attacks, but failed to take precautions

    [Sources close to U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration revealed
    that White House officials apparently received warnings that there
    were threats made to attack as many as seven U.S. missions in the
    Middle East, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as early
    as September 4. Sources also revealed that additional warnings were
    received a few days later, with similar information, but that all of the
    warnings were largely ignored by the administration. Normally when
    such warnings are received by the administration, the threat level is
    raised at U.S. installations around the world. At this point, there is no
    evidence that the Obama administration communicated the warnings
    with Consular officials in Libya or Egypt in advance of attacks that
    took place Monday in Benghazi, Libya and Cairo, Egypt, leaving the U.S.
    Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead, with eight others
    wounded, including some U.S. military personnel.]

    Obama : Zawahiri : Arab Forum : 9/11

    [Now it’s learned that President Obama appeared on the DJ Laz Morning
    Show in Miami, FL and, although it was his first opportunity to speak
    publicly on the anniversary of 9-11, he spoke of the Miami Dolphins, he
    spoke of College Loan reform, he spoke of his campaign, but he left out
    the day that changed America forever.]

    [Al-Qaeda’s leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has confirmed the death of his
    deputy Abu Yahya al-Libi, who was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan
    this summer. The video confirming his death was released on jihadist
    forums to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary.]

    [Not only is Barack Obama violating his pledge not to campaign on 9/11,
    but he is also using the day to issue greetings to the Arab Forum on Asset
    Recovery, seemingly oblivious to the importance and solemnity of the day,
    as well as the context of his message.]

    Obama Does Radio Interview on 9-11. No Mention of 9-11.

    attack by terrorists who used Libyan Mohammed movie
    protest as cover’

    [Officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they
    were not authorized to publicly discuss troop movements.

    Obama Politicizes The Sacrifices Of The SEALs—Again

    [The White House claims two ex-SEALs killed in Libya were inept security
    guards. The truth? They volunteered for duty and died heroes. But that
    doesn’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.

    Such information ought to get out, because these men died
    heroes. They didn’t have to be there, but they went anyway
    defending against a terrorist attack that can only be compared
    to the Alamo.]

    FAST AND FURIOUS II – The Benghazi Gambit

    For the first time on the Big Screen –

    WATCH the unfolding gambit of Our President’s secret gun deal with Libyan Al Qaeda fugitives in their efforts to help overthrow the treacherous reign of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad!

    WATCH the Gambit crumble as Al Qaeda turns these weapons on our Consulate!

    You will be in real-time suspense, as you —

    SEE Our President, his Secretary of State (along with a complete cast of State Department and Intelligence officials) as they survey our drone transmission of the Benghazi attack – as it’s happening!

    LISTEN to the real-time audio of the personnel on the ground in Benghazi.

    FEEL the silence of our aircraft in the region, and an abandoned rescue.

    Witness the unfolding cover-up saga of the Nakoula video — See Nakoula’s arrest — Watch all of the exclusive footage of Our Administration carpet-bombing the media with this “video viper” story. AND our President’s victory fundraiser the next day in – Las Vegas!!!

    (We wish to give special thanks to U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens, former Navy SEAL commandos & diplomatic security officers Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, information management officer Sean Smith for making this film possible.)

  • If this is all true, they knew the true nature of the attacks early on, AND they were/are running guns to Al-Qaeda backed groups, Owe man may well be impeached if he wins re-election.

    Drones were circling above U.S. consulate during Libya attack but officials decided NOT to mount a rescue mission

    U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens repeatedly pleaded with the State Department for additional security personnel.

    Republicans say the Obama administration denied the request for political reasons
    The White House says it had no role in procuring security detail for Stevens

    By Hayley Peterson and Jill Reilly

    PUBLISHED: 10:01 EST, 19 October 2012 | UPDATED: 12:49 EST, 20 October 2012

    American drones were in the skies above the U.S. consulate in Benghazi as the deadly attack that killed ambassador Christopher Stevens unfolded, it has been revealed.

    Defense department officials considered sending troops in to rescue the ambassador and staff, according to CBS News, but ultimately decided not to .

    They would haven been able to watch the attack on-screen as it unfolded.

    The revelations came a day after it emerged that U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens repeatedly pleaded with the State Department to ramp up his security team in Libya — requests that the Pentagon ultimately denied — in the weeks, days and hours leading up to the terrorist attack that killed him and three other Americans, newly released cables have revealed.

    Stevens, who was killed in the 11 September attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, warned the State Department of a ‘security vacuum’ in Libya ‘that is being exploited by independent actors’ in one cable that described rapidly deteriorating security conditions.

    ‘Islamic extremists are able to attack the Red Cross with impunity,’ he wrote. ‘What we have seen are not random crimes of opportunity but rather targeted discriminate attacks.’

    For all we know Obama, who was sponsored by Ted Kennedy himself, the Lyin’ of the Senate, was following up unfinished work by Kennedy who was in cahoots with Al Qaida in Iraq while Bush was President. . .

    Don’t forget Kennedy was a pal of the Russians. . .and so is Obama. . .he just needs Putin to give him more time. . . until after election when he will have more flexibility!

    This is much much worse than Iran-Contra. . . this is the real deal of treason! Especially when a US Ambassador and other Americans are purposely killed.

    When Obama says “not optimal” it is because his plan did not go as planned.

    Maybe you feel safe with your government assisted head in the sand; but I’ll wager most of the rest of the country wishes Obama pursued the War on Terror in earnest instead of faking it, lying about it, and essentially enabling Al Qaeda to strengthen. By the time Osama bin Ladin was killed by the Navy SEALs – almost in spite of Obama – he was pretty much a figure head of terrorism. If you think that killing Osama took care of terrorism, it does not matter where your head is – it’s worthless.

    The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have now taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East.

    The Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, the leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.
