Fact: President Obama did not debunk the “rumor” he denied requests for aid. He knows what he himself did that night. He chose not to answer the question. (source)
Fact: The White House knew it wasn’t a “spontaneous protest against a YouTube video” within hours after the attack started. They knew this and still lied to the American people about it for weeks. (source)
Fact: CBS had video evidence in a 60 Minute interview from a day after the September 11 attack where President Obama said explicitly that what happened in Benghazi was not the same as what happened in Egypt. He still blamed it on the YouTube video. The media helped him by not releasing this clip until a month later (October 19) quietly on the internet. (source)
Fact: The protest in Egypt wasn’t even about a YouTube video. The organizers of the protest told CNN reporter Nick Robertson on the morning of September 11th that they were organizing to demand the release of the Blind Sheik. The US Government told Americans that not only was the protest in Egypt about a YouTube video, but that the violence in Benghazi originated for the same reason. CNN was complicit in the coverup. They did not air this footage. (source)
Fact: Ambassador Stevens convened an emergency meeting about the situation on August 15 and sent a cable to Hilary Clinton/State Department a month before the attack that detailed the increasingly unstable conditions in Benghazi, including the presence of 10 Islamist militias and Al Quaida training camps in the city, and that the consulate was vulnerable to attack and could not be defended or withstand a coordinated attack. The security detail Ambassador Stevens had was not bolstered, but pulled out. (source)
Fact: The former head of a Special Forces “Site Security Team” in Libya, Lt. Col. Andy Wood, and his team were pulled out a month before the attack despite requests to keep the team and add more security, and despite consistent reports that the situation was rapidly deteriorating, most especially evident given the Benghazi mission was attacked two times earlier this year. (source & source)
Fact: In addition to the previous attacks on the Benghazi mission and constant communication well in advance of September 11th from Ambassador Stevens that the situation was deteriorating and more American security was needed, not only was his security detail recalled, but he was given local Libyan police detail as security instead. There were documents discovered in the ruins drafted the day of the attack reporting that Libyan police who were supposed to be protecting the Ambassador were suspected of taking surveillance photos. This confirms Sean Smith’s post that night (he was also a casualty of the attack) that “Assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures.” (source & source)
