Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.
Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security.
He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn't good for international business.
"The situation is frightening, it scares us," Mabrouk said they told the U.S. officials. He did not say how they responded.
OK, this is not actionable in the sense of sending an assault team to clear out some baddies. However, wouldn't this merit Marine protection? Increased alerts? Something? Our admin and state department did nothing while everyone except them, it seems, seemed to take the threats seriously....PATHETIC....
Meanwhile, AmbASSador Susan Rice, a known liar, has said that there is "no indication" the attacks were premeditated...in other words, the whole "the stupid movie cannard caused all this":
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi last week was not premeditated, directly contradicting top Libyan officials who say the attack was planned in advance.
“Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” Rice told me this morning on “This Week.” In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated,” Rice said, referring to protests in Egypt Tuesday over a film that depicts the Prophet Muhammad as a fraud. Protesters in Cairo breached the walls of the U.S. Embassy, tearing apart an American flag.
“We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to – or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo,” Rice said. “And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons… And it then evolved from there.”"
FOLKS? FOLKS? These are cryptoislamofascists who raped and killed and dragged a Unied States Citizen, much less an ambassador, through the streets shouting Allah is great, and you call them folks? You stupid twit! Obviously, the fact that safehouses were compromised and key details of the Ambassador being in country being leaked show premeditation. Even the libyans are calling b.s. on the whole "spontaneous combustion" crap:
Libya President Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf said Sunday that 50 arrests have been made in connection with last week's "preplanned" attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead.
"The way these perpetrators acted and moved -- I think we, and they're choosing the specific date for this so-called demonstration, I think we have no, this leaves us with no doubt that this was pre-planned, determined," Magariaf said on CBS's "Face the Nation."
This administration does not want to admit how badly they fumbled the ball and how they have made the world less safe, not more so, for Americans.....
And, the narrative of the Ambassador not being dragged or that the people around him on video are looking like that is garbage too, as breitbart is reporting a new video showing someone reportedly to be Stephens being dragged and the scumbags chanting and such....
This needs to stop......We need the truth...we need real leadership that will hunt down the scumbags, that will go after them...but most of all, will inspire again the respect that you do not mess with Americans. Appeasement and capitulation doesn't work. Obama doesn't work. Let's begin again.....
