Herridge On Cable Month Before Benghazi Attack: “Smoking Gun Warning Here”

Home - by - November 2, 2012 - 07:00 America/New_York - 6 Comments


“I really believe, having read it, that it is the smoking gun warning here. You’ve got this emergency meeting in Benghazi, less than a month before the attack. At that briefing, the people are told that there are ten, ten, Islamic militias and al-Qaeda groups in Benghazi. The consulate can not sustain a coordinated attack and they need extra help. This information goes directly to the office of the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. So, again, you have the culpability of the State Department. This is a very specific warning that they’re in trouble, they need help and they see an attack on the horizon,” FOX News’ Catherine Herridge reported on FOX News’ “On the Record” Wednesday night.

“I believe based on this cable the point that was being made, that they wanted made publicly, not just in a classified study, is that the warning that came from Benghazi was very specific. It said ‘we can not withstand an attack,’ the militias are everything, al-Qaeda is here. This was known to the U.S. intelligence community as well. And that they really could not see a situation where security was going to turn around. They send that it was trending negatively,” Herridge further reported.

“I can’t think of anything that would be more specific than if these groups had emailed the State Department and said, ‘Here’s the time, here’s the place, and here’s the method of the attack,’” she said.

“There can be no doubt that this is really a cry for help from the people on the ground,” Herridge told Greta van Susteren.

    Fox news is covering this story down to a gnats ass, and the only one doing so. Too bad no one is listening. They’d win the Pulitzer, if anyone in the media cared about it.

    You say Islamic militia, Ubangi’s Multiculties say a loving brotherhood of Muslim freedom fighters.

    See how dangerous leftism is people?

    A smoking gun that lead to a smoking body.

    There should be another Romney ad on how our foreign service officers can’t survive another 4 years of Teh One and/or Chardonnay Clinton.

    Why has Romney never once nailed the C.in C., (that first C. does NOT stand for commander!), over any of the dozens of things that should have his opponent in front of impeachment and criminal proceedings?

    Is he so afraid of alienating the undecideds that he can’t go there?

    If he wins by a little or a lot, (please, let it be so huge we need a new word to replace “landslide”), I’ll just have to allow that he knew what he was doing, but I wish he’d at least have let a single PAC play hardball.

    I can’t let myself think about a dhimmilibtardrat victory; it’s just too much to consider, but I remember when I first realized that the b-ho was going to win the last one, it was mind numbing.

    Catherine Herridge and Jennifer Griffin have provided enough evidence to throw every one of them in jail, but the crickets in the LSM just chirp idly away. Nothing to see here, move along. They are complicit in this crime and cover-up.

    @Stirrin – you’re right. If oblowme wins (my heart aches to think about it), the LSM is just as culpable in the demise of the GREAT USA as this ABHORRENT administration.
