To truly understand the perspective of our research, and how it lends to the analysis of the unfolding events, please reference one of our very first reports on Libya and how Egypt is the fundamental connection to their future. CLICK HERE
The US Media want you to believe Egypt and Libya are two completely divergent ideological entities, apples and oranges, separate. This is a lie. This is their primary lie. This foundational lie is what helps them frame the house of lies. It is important to firstly dispatch that untrue talking point (media lie) from your psyche – Then you can better understand. Once you comprehend the manipulative agenda within Libya then find out who stimulated it – Click here
THEY ARE TRYING TO HIDE THE SUN WITH TWO FINGERS AGAIN
REPORTS: State Department Chaos – Now Hiding documents and Scrubbing Website to avoid the TRUTH. The US Government was specifically warned of an attack – on 9-11 in Benghazi yet claimed exactly the opposite, and told people there was no known actionable threat…... (more below)
CNN Reporting – 3 Days Warning: Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.
Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security. He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn’t good for international business.
“The situation is frightening, it scares us,” Mabrouk said they told the U.S. officials. He did not say how they responded. (more)
To fully comprehend how utterly inept the Obama Administration’s foreign policy is it is always better to reference prior behavior. Think back to the beginning of the Arab Spring – Think back to Hillary Clinton saying one thing, and President Obama stating the complete opposite (Egypt/Mubarak). Think back to 11 days of AWOL Obama in Libya when Gaddafi was pushing back against his countries uprising and Obama was silent. Think back to Hillary Clinton saying the state department does not know “who the rebels actually are” in Benghazi.
Think back to UN Ambassador Susan Rice travelling to South Africa for a global warming weekend class/discussion while the United Nations Security Council met to discuss Libya during the crisis. Yeah, that’s right we had no-one there representing us, or our opinion, AT THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL MEETING to discuss how to deal with Gaddafi and Libya. Instead, at the president’s specific instructions, Ambassador Rice was discussing “Cow Farts”, true, no joke. Bovine flatulence and how it can impact climate change – Conference Topic. [February 23, 24, 25th 2011 – look it up].
From this 2011 UN Security Council Meeting came the International Criminal Court (ICC) charges against Gadaffi. Those short-sighted charges essentially insured the rebellion in Libya would be a fight to the death – Because Ghadaffi now had nothing to lose. If he quit the fight, he would be arrested, tried at the Hague and spend the rest of his life in jail. So why not fight to the death – he did.
But the example is about how short-sighted, inept, detached, and complacent the President Obama outlook is.
It really is *that* bad.
It is horribly weak, bordering on cowardice, for the extreme lengths Obama and Clinton will go to avoid dealing with issues.
Quite simply, they both are terrible – they talk two divergent narratives simultaneously – they are both horribly lazy – they obviously dislike each other – they are not often selling the same story – they are both extremely horrible managers of people and processes – However, they both possess one striking commonality, that, in the world of diplomacy is toxically dangerous; they are both extremely unprofessional and sloppy.
First Powerline Blog outlines the Chaos at the State Dept – I spoke with a well-placed journalist last night whose sources describe the situation at the State Department in one word: “Chaos.” The working assumption is that several American embassies may have been penetrated, or are vulnerable to attack, because so many of them rely on local residents for staff needs at the embassy, and as such may be in a position to breach security if they have been recruited by Al Qaida. Moreover, the full story of the attack on the Benghazi consulate is much worse than we have been told (except by the Independent newspaper report John and I linked to here on Thursday).
The consulate in Benghazi was an interim facility, with only a standard door lock for security, and worse, Ambassador Stevens was traveling with only a light security detail, rather than in the heavily armed convoys our diplomats in the region usually employ. The attack on the Benghazi was no mere target of opportunity spurred by reaction to the “Innocence of Muslims” film; the film is just a pretext. The killing of Amb. Stevens was a premeditated hit, planned and carried out as retaliation for the recent drone strike that killed the number two Al Qaida operative in Afghanistan recently. The vulnerability of Stevens at the Benghazi compound was scouted out carefully. All the other embassy protest activity is just covering theater. (read more)
Jim Hoft at GatewayPundit has the story: On Wednesday September 12, 2012 blogger Speak With Authority discovered that five days before 9-11, the US State Department sent out a memo announcing no credible security threats against the United States on the anniversary of 9-11.
The Overseas Security Advisory Council, who posted the memo, is part of the Bureau of Diplomatic Security under the U.S. Department of State.
Here is a screen grab of the memo at the OSAC website:
The damning memo is gone. How convenient. They flushed the damning memo down the internet memory hole. (read more)
A History Lesson:
In the rush to curtail Muammar al-Qaddafi’s military capacity to attack civilians in Libya, the U.N. Security Council voted unanimously on February 26,2011 to impose a comprehensive arms embargo on Libya. But the measure also unwittingly impeded the effort of the Western-backed rebels to fight Qaddafi’s forces.
Paragraph 9 of Resolution 1970 required all U.N. members to “immediately take the necessary measures” to bar the sale, supply or transfer of weapons, mercenaries, or other supplies to Libya. The arms embargo, which was adopted before the rebels had emerged as a potential threat to the regime, included no exemptions for Qaddafi’s foes.
Perhaps the reason both Ambassador Rice and President Obama were unaware of the arms embargo is because they were both detached from Libyan decisions at the time the UN met in emergency session to make the resolution: Which included #1. Asset Freeze. #2. ICC referral. #3. Arms Embargo. This was on February 23, 24, 25, 26, 2011 in UN emergency session.
UN Ambassador Susan Rice chose not to attend, and Obama was hosting a Motown review in the White House East Room. They were disinterested !!
It was not until the press began poking Obama over the optics of his golf bag whilst Libyans were strafed in the streets that Obama decided to take a look at Libya. 11 days after the entire flipping thing started. Hello? People? Can you see how flipping incompetent this administration is yet? Anyone ?…
