Remember, the Libyan Consulate was operating under a “US security waiver”. Meaning the Libyan consulate compound did not qualify as secure under the current risk guidelines, which include: minimum height 3 meter perimeter walls, steel reinforced entry doors, blast resistant windows, and 100 foot building setbacks – to name a few. So someone very high up in the White House or State Department had to sign an “authorization waiver” for the unqualified facility to be used. Who was that?
What if these pesky peeps keep poking us for answers. What’s an administration to do?
Oh, yeah,…… remember the “Rahm Emanuel File Cabinet”?
That stuffed-full filing cabinet, that “Dead Fish” Emanuel perfected the creation of. The one that holds tons of psy-ops information on not only the opposition, but also, “expendable” administration peeps.
Black-ops files of dirt….. The dark side of political science
Who would be the perfect administration official to fall on his sword for a national security breech, screwup, foul-up or catastrophic failure to prevent terrorism.
Hmmmm?….. A’s,….. , Nope. B’s.. let’s see…., um, Nope. C’s… hmmm…. Carney, Crist,….. Cla..
…. AH-HA !
“The Clapper File”
It he was being saved for the “scapegoat routine” in the event an underwear bomber was successful, or another al-Qaeda terror attack on US soil,….. but, pffffttt, he’s absolutely perfect for the job of sword falling to appease the easily manipulated media; and consequently we can spin it to make it look like “Mr. Gutsy Caller” himself ain’t going to let any incompetence be running around his White House.
Why yes. He’ll do just nicely thank you.
After all, the administration protected him from his own insufferable ineptitude on national television when he did not know about the 12 men arrested on the day of the London Bombings…… back in 2010 (Strike One)
(that’s still painful to watch)
But poor Mr. Clapper
was is such an intelligence doofus that they had to protect him again in February 2011 when he told the House Intelligence Committee the Muslim Brotherhood were a “largely secular” organization “which has eschewed violence and decried al-Qaeda“…. (Apparently forgetting the Muslim Brotherhood shot and killed Anwar Sadat, conspired to kill Mubarak, and attempted to assassinate his vice-president). To which the Obama Administration had to quickly correct. (Strike Two)
Yikes. Talk about optical, and actual, incompetence.
So he is the perfect scapegoat to run blocker for the administration: Intelligence office says it got Libya attack wrong, not White House
WASHINGTON DC – Extremists from groups linked to al Qaida struck the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in a “deliberate and organized terrorist attack,” the top U.S. intelligence agency said Friday, as it took responsibility for the Obama administration’s initial claims that the deadly assault grew from a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islam video.
The unusual statement from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence appeared to have two goals: updating the public on the latest findings of the investigation into the assault, and shielding the White House from a political backlash over its original accounts.
“In the immediate aftermath (of the assault), there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in Cairo,” spokesman Sean Turner said in the statement. “We provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of Congress, who used that information to discuss the attack publicly.”
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which coordinates and sets policies for the 16 other U.S. intelligence agencies, is led by retired Air Force Gen. James Clapper, who was appointed by President Barack Obama in August 2010. (read more)
