    Not Optimal Now Blames Intelligence Community for Lies on Benghazi

    Never one to step up and say "entirely my fault", the White House, according to the New York Times, is putting the onus on the CIA.


    WASHINGTON — Even as Susan E. Rice took to the Sunday talk shows last month to describe the Obama administration’s assessment of the Sept. 11 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, intelligence analysts suspected that the explanation was outdated.Ms. Rice, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, has said that the judgments she offered on the five talk shows on Sept. 16 came from talking points prepared by the C.I.A., which reckoned that the attack that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans had resulted from a spontaneous mob that was angry about an anti-Islamic video that had set off protests elsewhere. That assessment, described to Ms. Rice in briefings the day before her television appearances, was based on intercepted communications, informants’ tips and Libyan press reports, officials said.

    First Hillary threw herself under the bus, now Ms. Rice. This guy hides behind women.

    My question?

    Why was the intel so $#@!ing bad?

    The retribution begins...

    'Benghazi attack suspect' dies in Cairo shootout
    24 October 2012 - Security officials quoted in Egyptian media said they had tracked the man to the address in Madinet Nasr
    A man suspected of involvement in an attack on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi last month has been killed in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, officials say. The man was killed after an exchange of fire with security services in the Cairo suburb of Madinet Nasr. Authorities named the man only as Hazem.

    Four US diplomatic officials were killed in the Benghazi attack, among them the US ambassador to Libya. According to the Egyptian officials the suspect was cornered in a flat in Madinet Nasr early on Wednesday morning. He threw a bomb at the security forces, but it bounced back into the flat.

    An exchange of fire with the security services then began and went on for several hours, local media reports say. The suspect's burnt body was found in the property, along with weapons and explosive materials, officials say. The area was sealed off by police while emergency services dealt with a blaze caused by the exchange of fire.

    Emergency services also had to rescue other residents of the building using hydraulic ladders, officials told the al-Ahram newspaper. One possibility is that the suspect was trying to make his way to the Sinai peninsula, which has become a magnet for militants from across the region, the BBC's Jon Leyne in Cairo reports.

    Obama being a narcissist can't blame himself...he is not capable of uttering the words, especially when he is losing the race. But he isn't really worried because like all poor democrats, he purchased a 35 million dollar estate in Hawaii to go weep in, while the wife of the ambassador mourns her defiled husband.

    Everyone is a bump in the road for him. I don't believe he has the capacity to feel for anyone or anything. He is just a talking head.

    I don't think the intel was bad, it was ignored and now these Idiots are running around like the Katzenjammer Kids, what's scary is they are in charge but the last 4 years speaks for itself.

    CIA timeline belies White House excuses...

    CIA Timeline Confirms: Wood and Doherty Killed in Benghazi 7Hrs After WH Told of Attack; Commercial Airliner Can Fly From London to Libya and Back in That Time
    November 4, 2012 - What David Ignatius of The Washington Post describes as a “detailed CIA timeline” of the events that unfolded in Libya on Sept. 11, 2012 (and in the early hours of Sept. 12), confirms that former Navy Seals Tyrone Wood and Brian Doherty were not killed until seven hours after the State Department informed the White House—in writing--that the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack and that U.S. Amb. Chris Stevens was in Benghazi where the attack was taking place.
    The attack started at 3:40 p.m Washington, D.C. time. The State Department sent the White House an email at 4:05 pm with this subject line: “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack.” The email said Amb. Stevens was in Benghazi. According to the CIA timeline provided to the Washington Post and other news organizations, Wood and Doherty were killed by mortar fire while on the roof of a CIA facility in Benghazi between 11:15 p.m. and 11:26 p.m. Washington time—or between 5:15 a.m. and 5:26 a.m. Sept. 12 Benghazi time. Between 4:05 p.m. Washington time, when the State Department emailed the White House that the U.S diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack, and 11:15 p.m., when Wood and Doherty were killed, more than seven hours passed.

    On Expedia.com, British Airways is currently advertizing a non-stop flight from London to Libya on Nov. 15--via an Airbus A320--that is expected to have a duration of 3 hours and 30 minutes. That means that in the seven hours that elapsed between when the State Department informed the White House that the U.S. mission in Benghazi was under and when Wood and Doherty were killed, a common commercial airliner—not a military jet--could have flow from England to Libya and back. White House National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, according to reporting by CBS News, personally informed President Obama of the ongoing attack in Benghazi before Obama went into a pre-scheduled 5:00 p.m. meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Vice President Joe Biden.

    (On Tuesday, CNSNews.com asked the Defense Department whether this previously scheduled meeting between Obama and Panetta had in fact taken place, whether Panetta was aware at that time of the ongoing attack in Benghazi that the State Department had reported to both the Pentagon and the White House at 4:05 p.m., and whether the president had used that meeting to discuss with Panetta what should be done to defend the Americans in Benghazi. Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale, a department spokesman, told CNSNews.com at that time: “Panetta met with President Obama, as the White House-provided scheduled indicates. However, neither the content nor the subject of discussions between the President and his advisers are appropriate for disclosure.”)

    Rand Paul: State Spent $100K to ‘Green Up’ Vienna Embassy 4 Days After Denying Libya Embassy Access to Plane
    November 2, 2012 – Four days after the security team at the U.S. embassy in Libya was denied further use of a DC-3 plane, the State Department approved $100,000 to “green up” the U.S. embassy in Vienna, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” on Sunday.
    “What I’ve been pounding home is four days after that DC-3 was removed in May of 2012, they approved $100,000 to green up the embassy in Vienna, to spend some money on electrical charging stations for electric cars that cost the taxpayer $250,000 per car in subsidies,” said Paul. Paul asked why no one was guarding U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and why the 16-person security team was removed from Libya in August when they “specifically requested to stay.” Stevens and three other Americans were killed on Sept. 11, 2012, the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, during an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

    “I would hate to be the person who’s sitting there today who made the decision when it was requested that a security team stay in one of the most dangerous countries in the world that— would you like to be the bureaucrat in the State Department who said, ‘Oh, no. We don’t have the money. You need to come home,’” Paul asked. “The same with the DC 3. What I’ve been pounding home is four days after that DC-3 was removed in May of 2012, they approved $100,000 to green up the embassy in Vienna, to spend some money on electrical charging station for electric cars that cost the taxpayer $250,000 per car in subsidies,” he said.

    The Vienna embassy announced on its website on May 10, that it was “Celebrating the Greening of the Embassy.” “The U.S. Embassy Vienna opened the doors to Ambassador Eacho’s ‘green’ residence with a gala dinner event, an exhibit by green-technology companies and an electric car and motorcycle show. The Embassy used the makeover to highlight U.S. government commitment to climate change solutions, and to successfully demonstrate the use of innovative clean energy technologies,” the website said.

    Paul called the Vienna event “a political statement.” “This is a political statement that we’re making at the Vienna embassy. They want to show off for the Europeans to say, ‘Hey, we’re as European as you are, but yet, we don’t have money to provide for the basic security of an embassy. That to me is inexcusable, and whoever made those decisions, and they already know that. You don’t need a congressional investigation. Whoever made those decisions ought to be fired,” he said.

    This is ridiculous... Obama did take responsibility.. They were running a covert operation and you want all the information. Her husband wasn't "defiled"... Quit spreading cruel lies.
