Obama: No Presidential Intelligence Breifings The Week Before The Attacks

Sure, why would anyone think there might be some violence on 9/11?

By the way: In Bengazi, a staffer wrote (in an online gaming forum; he was an EVE player)...

"(12:54:09 PM) vile_rat: assuming we don't die tonight. We saw one of our 'police' that guard the compound taking pictures."

It seems the embassy staff knew something was coming -- why was Obama not doing something about this? Such as... evacuating the staff? Sending in Marines?

Intelligence ignored? Straight from the mouth of an embassy staffer looking right at the guy casing the compound?

On 9/11?

Additionally, the US was warned that extremists might attempt to burn down the embassy. On Monday.

According to El Fagr, they are calling for the immediate release of the Islamic jihadis who are imprisonment and in detention centers in the U.S. including Guantanamo Bay: “The group, which consists of many members from al-Qaeda, called [especially] for the quick release of the jihadi [mujahid] sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman [the "Blind Sheikh"], whom they described as a scholar and jihadi who sacrificed his life for the Egyptian Umma, who was ignored by the Mubarak regime, and [President] Morsi is refusing to intervene on his behalf and release him, despite promising that he would. The Islamic Group has threatened to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo with those in it, and taking hostage those who remain [alive], unless the Blind Sheikh is immediately released.”

This explains why they had, in this case, evacuated most of the staff. What it doesn't explain is why the administration was otherwise so flat-footed -- including in Benghazi.

Libya Attack Pre-Planned, Coordinated With Muslim Brotherhood: So claims one report.

It sure does look that way.

But the important story here isn't what Obama failed to do to forestall the attacks, but what Romney said in response to his failure.

Right?

Muslim Brotherhood Calls For Worldwide Attacks: They say "protests." They mean attacks.

Tick Tock: So, some precautions were taken -- the embassy was moved to a safehouse.

Problem is, that was also compromised. Likely by our allies, the Freedom Fighters of Libya.
