53 House Members Demand of Obama: Were Pre-9/11/12 Benghazi Bombings in Presidential Daily Briefs?

(CNSNews.com) – Fifty-three House members are demanding to know whether the April 6, 2012 and June 6, 2012 bomb-attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya were immediately included in the President’s Daily Brief. These bombing attacks occurred before the fatal Sept. 11 terrorist attack that killed U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 other Americans.

“When was President Obama made aware of these two attacks on the Benghazi compound?” the letter asked. “Were these two attacks included in the President’s Daily Brief immediately after the attacks took place?”

The Presidential Daily Brief is a daily national security and intelligence report provided to the president each morning by the Director of National Intelligence. It is the foundation of national security briefings.

The letter was sent to Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and signed by 53 House members on Nov. 2.

The letter, circulated by Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) is in response to ongoing questions surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the Benghazi compound. That deadly attack came after 230 security incidents in Libya, 48 of which happened in Benghazi from June 2011 to July 2012, the House letter said, citing the U.S. Embassy in Libya’s Regional Security Office.

“On April 6, a bomb was thrown over the wall of the U.S. compound in Benghazi, causing some damage to an interior wall,” the letter states. “The attackers were a contract guard and a former contract guard who had been recently dismissed for gross misconduct, specifically, for putting graffiti on U.S. government property.”

“On June 6, an attacker placed a bomb on the ledge of the compound’s perimeter wall, creating a large crater in the perimeter wall that was described as ‘big enough for 40 men to go through,’” the letter states.

The letter went on to ask about security at the consulate and when President Obama knew about the previous attacks.

    Benghazi documents available to senators only when they are out of town.

    “Funny since no member is in town,” the aide said. “The timing and limited access clearly demonstrates the administration cares more about playing politics with the tragedy than accepting responsibility.”

    I see Biden acting the way he did during his ‘debate’:
    rolling his eyes, guffawing and mouthing the words: “are you kidding me?!”

    There will be no justice for the Americans killed in Benghazi –

    Obama will fail again to be transparent about the details by claiming; executive privilege, and the need to keep intelligence information and time line about what he knew and when, secret for national security reasons – Because ( & this one ticks me off the most) his first priority is to protect the American people. bah humbug

    Also no justice for the YT video maker either. Unless I have missed reading about the stampede of ACLU lawyers rushing to defend his divine right to free speech.

    ditto blink

    as long as the senate belongs to the demons!

    however, when the US goes down, we all go down including all the rats that voted for the demon!

    the book of revelation is very revealing, it seems that we are playing out that very same senario that the book of revelations speak of!

    We all know now that not a goddamn thing is going to happen with Benghazi. Anything the GOP tries to do will be met with cries of racism from half the country, the news media, and Hollywood. This country is fucked now, and there will be know justice for Benghazi with this pack of scumbags in the White House and the Senate.

    Bitterclinger, apologies. I didn’t see your new avatar before I posted Moochelle’s future portrait. Never meant to imply there was any connection between you and the wookie.

    OTOH, GMTA!
