Obama Administration Warned About Attacks
The more details surface about the attacks on the U.S. Embassies in Egypt and Libya, the more disturbing they are. First, there are shocking reports about the Ambassador possibly being sexually assaulted before being killed. Also, reports are indicating that Obama knew about the elevated warnings and did nothing.
Senior diplomatic sources say the U.S. State Department had credible information, 48 hours prior to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the embassy in Cairo, that American locations may be targeted, however, no warnings were issued, no “lock down” orders given, The Independent reports.
On Tuesday, a mob of radical Islamists stormed the consulate in Benghazi, killing U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in a fiery assault. Officials say the murders of the four men were likely the result of “a serious and continuing security breach,” the report states.
The Independent has also reported that sensitive documents have been taken from the embassy:
American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.
The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the “safe house” in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed “safe”.
Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.
According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.
(Dr. Dixon: In our opinion, this is one of the most terrible acts of treason in the history of our nation, namely because it has been carried out in the plane sight of the American people with no apparent repercussions. When the Executive branch of government commits treason, who is to stop them? They have the police powers of the state in their hands. And still our religious leaders have not called them to task, and called our nation to repentance and prayer.)
