Classified Cable Reveals Embassy In Libya Warned Obama A Month Before Attack

The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before 9-11, stating Embassy could not defend against Al Qaeda “coordinated attack”.

After Obama left Americans to die by the hands of Al Qaeda Jihadists whom he was arming with weapons and funds, a massive cover-up with complicity of the media continues.  It seems only ONE news outlet is willing to cover the story of Obama’s complicity of assassination of his own ambassador and Americans who defied orders to ‘stand down’ to rescue the mission staff.

Despite the continuing insistence that Obama’s regime had ‘no reliable intel’ of the danger the U.S. Mission in Libya,  at Fox News uncovers a top secret cable sent almost a MONTH before the 9-11 attacks in Libya whereby the mission’s RSO Security officer stated that the Consulate could not withstand a coordinated attack by Al Qaeda Jihadists whom had training camps in Benghazi.

Obama and the State Department knew  Al Qaeda Jihadist groups were operating in Benghazi.  A flurry of intelligence reports were sent after the fall of Gadhaffi’s regime after a June 6 bomb attack on the Benghazi mission’s security wall and an attack on a Red Cross shelter followed by other assassinations by identified Jihad groups operating in the mountain areas around Benghazi.

Obama’s regime did nothing to reinforce or secure the Mission, even after actual attacks in June.  It kept a ‘minimalist’ position, most likely to facilitate the Fast & Furious -styled arming of Jihadist groups that Obama designated as ‘rebels’ against the Secular Dictatorships in the Arab world whom Obama was working to overthrow.  Reports that the Benghazi mission was serving as an arms cache depot to funnel SAMs/MANPAD surface-to-air missiles and guns to Jihadist ‘rebels’ in Syria adds to the suspicion that Obama let Ambassador Stevens die to bury and cover up his regime’s involvement in treason.

Classified cable warned consulate couldn’t withstand ‘coordinated attack':

The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack,” according to a classified cable reviewed by Fox News.

The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack,” according to a classified cable reviewed by Fox News.

Summarizing an Aug. 15 emergency meeting convened by the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Aug. 16 cable marked “SECRET” said that the State Department’s senior security officer, also known as the RSO, did not believe the consulate could be protected.

“RSO (Regional Security Officer) expressed concerns with the ability to defend Post in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities, host nation support, and the overall size of the compound,” the cable said.

According to a review of the cable addressed to the Office of the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Emergency Action Committee was also briefed “on the location of approximately ten Islamist militias and AQ training camps within Benghazi … these groups ran the spectrum from Islamist militias, such as the QRF Brigade and Ansar al-Sharia, to ‘Takfirist thugs.’” Each U.S. mission has a so-called Emergency Action Committee that is responsible for security measures and emergency planning.

The details in the cable seemed to foreshadow the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. compound, which was a coordinated, commando-style assault using direct and indirect fire. Al Qaeda in North Africa and Ansar al-Sharia, both mentioned in the cable, have since been implicated in the consulate attack.

In addition to describing the security situation in Benghazi as “trending negatively,” the cable said explicitly that the mission would ask for more help. “In light of the uncertain security environment, US Mission Benghazi will submit specific requests to US Embassy Tripoli for additional physical security upgrades and staffing needs by separate cover.”

This is almost a MONTH before the attacks.  Obama’s State Department under the direction of Hillary Clinton were well aware of the threat Al Qaeda and other Jihadi groups posed to the Mission, and as always – Obama’s regime REFUSES to answer questions about this unravelling scandal – instead sticking to a massive lie and narrative.

While the administration’s public statements have suggested that the attack came without warning, the Aug. 16 cable seems to undercut those claims. It was a direct warning to the State Department that the Benghazi consulate was vulnerable to attack, that it could not be defended and that the presence of anti-U.S. militias and Al Qaeda was well-known to the U.S. intelligence community.

In a three-page cable on Sept 11, the day Stevens and the three other Americans were killed, Stevens wrote about “growing problems with security” in Benghazi and “growing frustration” with the security forces and Libyan police. The ambassador saw both as “too weak to keep the country secure.”

Fox News asked the State Department to respond to a series of questions about the Aug. 16 cable, including who was specifically charged with reviewing it and whether action was taken by Washington or Tripoli. Fox News also asked, given the specific warnings and the detailed intelligence laid out in the cable, whether the State Department considered extra measures for the consulate in light of the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks – and if no action was taken, who made that call.

The State Department press office declined to answer specific questions, citing the classified nature of the cable.
