13 INCIDENTS: FROM RPG ATTACKS TO FACEBOOK POSTS DETAILING AMBASSADOR’S EARLY MORNING RUNS
O’s poodle, propaganda minister Jay Carney, declined to comment on a charge by the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that requests from Ambassador Stevens and other diplomats in Libya for added security prior to the September 11, 2012 attack on the diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya were denied. From ABC News:
“I’m not going to get into a situation under review by the State Department and the FBI,” Carney said. (This is exactly why the Regime announced within a nanosecond of the assault that it was “sending the FBI to Benghazi” to “investigate” the attack. Poodle can now refuse to answer any and all questions – choosing instead to hide behind the “ongoing investigation” – which is yet to begin – and won’t begin – until after the election, if ever.)
Earlier today, chairman of the committee Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, the chair of the subcommittee on national security, homeland defense, and foreign operations, wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, asserting that “multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the Committee that, prior to the September 11 (2012) attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these requests by officials in Washington.”
The two congressmen also listed thirteen incidents leading up to the attack – ranging from I.E.D. and RPG attacks to a “posting on a pro-Gaddafi Facebook page” publicizing early morning runs taken by the late Ambassador Chris Stevens and his security detail around Tripoli.
“Was State Department headquarters in Washington aware of all the above incidents?” they asked Secretary Clinton, requesting written responses by October 8. “If not, why not?”
“If so, what measures did the State Department take to match the level of security provided to the U.S. Mission in Libya to the level of threat?” they asked. The two also asked for details of “any requests made by Embassy Tripoli to State Department headquarters for additional security, whether in general or in light of specific attacks” detailed in the letter.

Incredulously, Poodle also said that “from the moment our facility was attacked” the president has been focused on providing security to all diplomatic posts “and bringing the killers to justice.”
Um, given the multiple attacks on the consulate, the various threats and warnings on Facebook – not to mention the posting of the route of the Ambassador’s early-morning runs – did it not occur to O and Hillary that perhaps the Regime should have been “focused on providing security” to the consulate prior to the attack?
What the hell did the jihadists have to do to get O’s attention, Poodle – sit next to him on the couch on The View?
