In cable the day he died, U.S. ambassador warned Clinton about Benghazi security

In all the haze and confusion of Obama conspiracies, the simple and raw facts of his administration, which should be enough to impeach him alone, get lost. Those who remember Nixon will not be able to find anything as bad as what happened in Benghazi, yet Obama gets a pass.


The Washington Guardian:

  • Cable from Chris Stevens was chock full of reports on regional violence, concerns about local security capabilities

Why It Matters:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton makes a farewell appearance before Congress to address questions about the Benghazi terror attack last Sept. 11, and likely will be confronted by the very warning her ambassador from Libya sent just hours before his death.

Just hours before he died in a terrorist attack at the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Ambassador Chris Stevens sent a cable to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton painting a chaotic, violent portrait of the eastern Libya city and warning that local militias were threatening to pull the security they afforded U.S. officials.

Militia leaders told U.S. officials just two days before the attack that they were angered by U.S. support of a particular candidate for Libyan prime minister and warned “they would not continue to guarantee security in Benghazi, a critical function they asserted they were currently providing,” Stevens wrote in the cable the morning of Sept. 11, 2012.  He also cited several other episodes that raised questions about the reliability of local Libya security.

“Growing problems with security would discourage foreign investment and led to persistent economic stagnation in eastern Libya,” Stevens cautioned.

  1. If the shit really his the fan for Obama, then Clinton will take the rap. Obama won’t be blamed. He’ll try and wriggle his way out of this!
