At 4:05 p.m. Eastern time, on September 11, an alert from the State Department Operations Center was issued to a number government and intelligence agencies. Included were the White House Situation Room, the office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the FBI.
“US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack” — “approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM (Chief of Mission/embassy) personnel are in the compound safe haven.”
At 4:54 p.m., less than an hour later, another alert: “the firing… in Benghazi…has stopped…A response team is on site attempting to locate COM (embassy) personnel.”
Then, at 6:07 p.m., State sent out another alert saying the embassy in Tripoli reported the Islamic military group “Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibilty for Benghazi Attack”… “on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli.”
Obama, Rice, Carney, Clinton… they all trotted around and blamed a video. Now it’s confirmed, they knew it wasn’t about a video all along… small wonder that Obama went to bed and then flew to Vegas the next day. I think we can say without reservation now that this administration lied, continued to lie, altered their lies and has attempted to cover up what really happened there at all costs.
Looks like this timeline needs to be updated:
- #NARRATIVEFAIL: White House told of militant claim two hours after Libya attack
- Emails show White House knew of 9/11 Benghazi terror attack within 2 hours
- GAFFNEY: The real reason behind Benghazigate
