In Benghazi, the consulate safe house was hit with mortar fire

This is really quite stunning.

But sources told ABC News that intelligence officials on the ground immediately suspected the attack was not tied to the movie at all. The attackers knew Ambassador Stevens had been trying to flee — to a so-called safe house half a mile away. That building was hit with insurgent mortars — suggesting the terrorists knew what they were doing.

As of Thursday afternoon, officials from the Obama administration were not even 100 percent certain that the protest of the anti-Muslim film in Benghazi occurred outside the U.S. diplomatic post.

In a closed-door briefing with top officials, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper described the mortar attack on the safe house as suggesting that the terrorist attack was one of opportunity, not pre-meditation, since the mortars were not used to attack the consulate earlier in the day.

So, as the attack on the consulate unfolded, the ambassador and his staff attempted to move to a pre-planned safe house. It turned out, however, that the safe house was under attack by indirect fire from crew served weapons.

Knowing this, Jay Carney told the press and the world…

“Let’s be clear, these protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region.”

Protests in reaction to videos do not include an assault on the consulate with a synchronized mortar attack on the expected escape and evasion safe house. The Administration knew that with absolute certainty as they told the world otherwise.

    Members of the administration are, collectively, a lying sack of shit in the face of a US diplomat tortured and killed, alongside three other Americans.

    If you can’t speak the truth in matters of life and death for an attack on US personnel on 9/11, then you aren’t the right folks to lead our nation.

    One term, one term only.

    They’re all liars. Every last one of them! Just to add some historical perspective – tar & feathers would have been the choice of the Sons of Liberty.

    I heard that info about the mortar fire last Saturday night while listening to Dark Secret Place.
    If any of you haven’t been fortunate enough to hear Bryan Suits, you ought to check him out.

    The President of the United States, Barack Obama is NOT only the worst President ever, even worse than Jimmy Carter or Woodrow Wilson, he is also a full blown “pathological liar”.





    5. Democrats know the President was caught in a lie and now want a “full investigation into the Benghazi killings by Al Qaeda…………………………….after the elections!
