Bits and pieces keep coming out about the 9/11-2012 Benghazi attacks.

Despite the Administration's continued insistence of spontaneous protesting, Judicial Watch now has the testimony finally released by the State Department/Congressional hearings.

Looks like the "incident" was in fact watched in real time.

The lies keep piling up.

There's more lies than truth.

Judicial Watch Obtains State Department DSCC Records on Terrorist Attack on Benghazi

Top State Department Official Admitted to Congress that Command Center “could follow what was happening in almost real-time”

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained court-ordered documents in accordance with its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. State Department seeking “any and all logs, reports, or other records” the Washington-based Diplomatic Security Command Center produced between September 10, 2012, and September 13, 2012, relating to the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on October 16, 2014, (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01733)).

According to testimony given by Deputy Assistant Secretary Of State Charlene Lamb before the House Oversight Committee on October 10, 2012, the Command Center knew the Benghazi compound was under hostile fire from the moment the attack began. Lamb’s testimony was in direct conflict with initial false claims by the Obama administration that the attack arose from a spontaneous demonstration in response to an Internet video.

Right people!

Nothing to see here folks move right along.

A 'spontaneous' demonstration on September 11th was just a mere coincidence.

Our president, and his lackey's would never tell a lie.

They are like George Washington!

Many, myself included, have said the same thing from the beginning but ever since the Repubs came out with their own investigation clearing the administration of wrong doing or lack of doing, well the story was lost and those who defended the administration said told ya so.

As if the Dems and Repubs aren't in bed together

Here's that report from last year.

Maybe some conflicts.

You lot do realise that the "spontaneous protests" came from a CIA memo of talking points and was relayed by the Admin...

Not just made up on the spot by Obama...

If you're gonna point fingers... Look at your Intel Agency.

January 23rd 2013: Hillary Clinton stated that;
"People were trying in real time to get the best information...
The Intelligence Committee has a process, I understand, going with the other Committees to explain how these talking points came about"

So why now, on January 27th 2015, over 2 years later...

Are people making out that this wasn't already damn well known...

Smear Campaign Smear Campaign Smear Campaign!

This report always bothered me.

U.S. Consulate in Benghazi Bombed Twice in Run-Up to 9/11 Anniversary

Jihadists twice set off explosives at the consulate prior to the incident that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, and announced threats on Facebook about escalating attacks on Western targets in the run-up to the 9/11 anniversary, according to whistleblowers reaching out to House Republicans.

And this report,

Documents Back Up Claims of Requests for Greater Security in Benghazi

Republicans on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform have released new documents backing up claims by security personnel previously station in Libya that there was a shortage of security personnel in Benghazi.
The documents contain previously unreleased cables from Ambassador Stevens and his staff reflecting concerns about safety in the country.

The U.S. State Department did not have an immediate comment.

One signed by Stevens and titled “LIBYA’S FRAGILE SECURITY DETERIORIATES AS TRIBAL RIVALRIES, POWER PLAYS AND EXTREMISM INTENSIFY,” dated June 25, 2012, assess the increase in violence. ”From April to June, Libya also witnesses an increase in attacks targeting international organizations and foreign interests,” Stevens wrote, describing attacks on a United Nations official in Benghazi, International Committee for the Red Cross buildings in Benghazi and Misrata, and IED at the mission in Benghazi, and RPG fired at the British Ambassador’s convoy, and an attack on the consulate of Tunisia.

And this,

Diplomat Killed in Libya Told Fellow Gamers: Hope I ‘Don’t Die Tonight’

On Tuesday, Sean Smith, a Foreign Service Information Management Officer assigned to the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, typed a message to the director of his online gaming guild: “Assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures.” The consulate was under siege, and within hours, a mob would attack, killing Smith along with three others, including the U.S. ambassador.

Then the Obama administration lied and said it was because of a stupid movie which ironically because of their lies caused riot protests across the Middle East.

The reason the administration spun Benghazi was because of this:

In April 2014, Judicial Watch forced the release of State Department documents it had obtained, including an internal email showing then-White House Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser Ben Rhodes and other Obama administration public relations officials attempting to orchestrate a campaign to “reinforce” President Obama and to portray the Benghazi consulate terrorist attack as being “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy.”

We heard NOTHING from Libya for over 30 years until Obama decided to bomb the hell out of it.

I wonder what Hillary will say now the truth is out and she lied?

I also wonder who in the Republican party said do not pursue contempt of Congress?

What does it matter, I believe were her thoughts on the topic.

What will she do? She'll run for president of course!

That may well be true Neo...
Maybe they were just pissed off Libyans...

Although there was violence and demonstrations about the anti-Islamic video elsewhere at the exact same time...

Even if it wasn't provoked by the video...

Doesn't change the fact that it's been known for over two years that "real time" analysis was being used...

Nor does it change the fact that the claims of it being done because of "spontaneous demonstrations" came from the CIA initially...

"No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. "
Does this not hint at reference to his Policies?

That was no more than 24hrs after the attack...

Could it not be about policies & the video?

Or do you feel that terrorism has one motive?

I'd expect a culmination of things to piss people off more than a singular thing.

The only thing I'd agree with is that more should have been done to protect the Embassy, having had prior knowledge of the demonstrations elsewhere across the region.

Because in all honesty, the cause is moot if it could have been prevented in the first place.

Ben Rhodes seems like a dodgy bastard, after having a quick look at his background.

No excuse for Obama to keep someone like that on his team.
