The Obama Administration was warned that radical Islamists were “gathering weapons and gathering steam” three hours before attack.
They did nothing.
Jennifer Griffin at FOX News reported:

Ed Morrissey added this at HotAir:

If this is the case, then why wasn’t the FEST team ready to intervene? Actually, as Allahpundit noted last night, the military and CIA did have their teams ready. Now it appears that the State Department, at least, had three hours’ notice of radical Islamist activity in the city “gathering weapons and gathering steam,” plus a very big warning about consulate security being compromised. Yet while the attack took place, no one gave the order for a military intervention. Even hours into the attack, the White House didn’t go any farther than order an evacuation effort at the Benghazi airport.

This “spontaneous demonstration” story is falling apart. And it’s interesting to see how it’s falling apart, too. Earlier, the White House tried to lay off the failure on the intel community, which sparked a flurry of leaks showing that the intel community had warned of this issue and wanted to respond during the attack. This week, the White House has started to shift blame to State, and now we’re seeing these leaks showing that State knew exactly what was going on.

This buck stops at the Oval Office, and it’s only going to be a matter of time before we get the leaks to show it.

Barack Obama was notified of the attack on the Benghazi consulate at 5 PM EST.

  1. Your kidding me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. unfortunately for us all, not just the people in Benghazi, the sign on Barry’s desk reads “The Buck Passes Here.”

  3. Obviously the buck stops anywhere except obama’s desk.

    I want to see someone held accountable for the American deaths, destruction of US property and violation of our embassy and safe house. obama? Clinton? Panetta?

  4. It would actually be better for the democrats for this guy to lose Tuesday.

  5. Jennifer Griffin and Catherine Herridge both deserve awards for journalism for this story.
    they have done wonderful reporting.

    This IS worse than Watergate and getting worse daily.
    And there are still libs who say it is a non story.

  6. Very hard for the buck to stop on/at Barry’s desk when he has been so busy spending laundering trillions of them since his enthronement.

  7. What does he do after he learns they’re being attacked in Benghai? He goes to bed to rest p for a fund raiser in Las Vegas. Real leadership.

  8. That’s no longer treason. That’s murder. Cold blooded, calculated murder.

    PS: they’re not radical islamists. Nothing about them is radical. Want to see a radical mohammedan? Check out the small minority that ignores parts of the koran. Those guys are the radicals, as they defy Mohammed’s orders.

  9. They did do two things:

    They made sure the drone was in place to have front row sitting!

    And made sure no help got there!

  10. The zipster needed his beauty sleep for his Vegas road trip. Do you think he actually gives a rat’s @$$ about New Jersey? It was a photo-op, period!

    And Bret Bair, I realize he isn’t out in the field but he too deserves something. And Those at Fox news for being such professionals in Journalism.

  12. Many wish Romney had at the last debate said Much More about Benghazi.

    He really should say something but for whatever reason he has just said Obama’s foreign Policy is a failure.

  13. And this is what we can expect with a planned attack in NYC, right? Or somewhere else in the country?

  14. Obama was aware days in advance. Nothing was a surprise and nothing was a concern to him other than waiting for the results.

    Enemy of the state.

    Why? Haven’t you heard that old expression about letting people digging themselves into a hole get on with it?

    All Mitt Romney bringing it up further would do would be to give the MSM an excuse to go after him for something else. By staying out of it all the focus is squarely where it belongs – on Obama.

  16. Maybe they misheard and it was Juanita Broaddrick shouting at Bubba: rapist, rapist, rapist!

  17. God, I’m just waiting for GW Bush and his cronies to be held accountable for the Iraq war under false pretenses (no WMD’s) and the deaths of THOUSANDS of military personnel. Oh yea, let’s not forget about the Valerie Plame treason affair.

  18. #19 Celman, are you going to hold Joe Biden accountable for voting to authorize the war on Iraq.

    By the way you want to Google WMD and Scud missiles.
