Jay Carney: On second thought, I guess it’s possible that that Benghazi attack was preplanned

posted at 9:34 pm on September 18, 2012 by Allahpundit

He was telling a different story four days ago, but now that the press is back in “what about Romney’s gaffes?” mode, I guess it’s safe to open the door a crack to a very obvious conclusion.

The White House on Tuesday explicitly left open the possibility that last week’s dramatic attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which left four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens dead, was a preplanned attack…

“There is an abundance of weapons, including heavy weapons, and there are certainly groups that carry those weapons and look to take advantage of those circumstances—as there are around the region and the world,” Carney said. He did not say whether such groups might be linked to international extremist networks like al-Qaida.

“We have seen circumstances in the past in other parts of the region where incidents that inflame opinion are taken advantage of, and exploited, by groups that have an interest in creating chaos and destabilizing their local governments, or attacking the West or the United States,” Carney said…

But Carney last week repeatedly blamed the video for the violence, including the attack on the consulate in Benghazi. “It’s not an assumption,” he said Friday, asserting that the administration had no evidence to buttress the claim that the attack was the work of extremists.

According to both a Libyan security guard who was there and an intelligence source “on the ground in Libya” who spoke to Fox News, there was no “protest” of the Mohammed movie in Benghazi at all. It was a full-on attack on the consulate from the beginning. I’m increasingly curious about why there’s such a discrepancy about this in various accounts; it should be easy enough to determine from survivors whether there was a group outside the consulate shrieking about the movie an hour or two before the shooting started. If it were only Carney and Susan Rice insisting that there had been a protest before the attack, I’d chalk it up to White House disinformation designed to buttress Obama’s “blame the video, not my policies” defense. But it’s not just them: A regional representative for Libya’s interior ministry also says there was a protest.

Meanwhile, the Breitbart crew may have solved the mystery of why security at the consulate was so weak. It’s hard to defend yourself when your top priority is keeping a “light footprint” so as not to offend the locals:

According to a source close to Breitbart News and high up in the intelligence community, the Obama administration’s policy following Muammar Gaddafi’s death has been to keep a “low profile” during a chaotic time.

For this reason, according to the source, American Marines were not stationed at the U.S. embassy in Tripoli or the American mission in Benghazi, as would typically have been the case. In the spirit of a “low profile,” the administration didn’t even want an American company in charge of private security. Blue Mountain, the British firm the State Department hired, was willing to abide by the “no bullets” Rules of Engagement (ROE), so were a logical fit for the contract. These sub-standard protections for American diplomats were signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the ROE.

In essence, the Obama Administration tasked an unarmed British firm with security responsibilities that should have been handled by armed American servicemen, and it was all approved by the Secretary of State. Needless to say, the plan failed and an Ambassador was murdered, along with several others.

Krazy kwestion for the State Department: Given that the consulate had been targeted at least once before, how long were they planning to follow the “let’s be quiet and hope the local terrorists don’t know we’re Americans” strategy? Exit quotation from Mike Rogers: “This (the U.S. Consulate) was a place that was targeted months before with an IED (improvised explosive device). It’s clearly a target that they wanted to hit and they wanted to cause casualties. … It’s just too many coincidences here.”

Bishop on September 18, 2012 at 9:55 PM

There were a number of other facts not reported. Why, for instance, was our Libyan ambassador traveling in a regular car to Benghazi, the very home of AQ and the recruiting center for most of them who went to Iraq, a car that was not bulletproofed or armored as the vehicles of most of our ambassadors in trouble spots travel in? Plus, there was no advance security detail, and all he had with him in this civilian car were, reportedly, three security guys, allegedly two SEAL’s among them. I can’t imagine our SEALs going into such a situation, unless it was supposed to be a covert infil, and so that tells me that someone among the Libyans dimed the mission out.

Moreover, Benghazi is the most dangerous place in all of Libya even before the fall of Kaddafi. It’s a hot bed on steroids and has been for years. So, what the hell was the ambassador doing there anyway? And, on 9/11?

The so-called American consulate there is nothing but a rented house with bars on the windows, and the ‘safe-house’ where the ambassador was torturted/killed was the same. This is so smelly, from the word go.

And the media will nod sagely and praise him as a saint, a genius, a foreign policy wunderkind, and the best thing in politics since JFK and FDR with a dash of Harry Truman thrown in.

Obama could kick a toddler out of his way and the media would say it was a pre-emptive Heimlich maneuver.

Hillary had thought she had the perfect position to run in 2016 from, somewhere where she knew she would be divorced from what she knew would be a domestic disaster of little Bammie’s incompetence.

It almost worked, and then with three months to go in her term, she stepped into the biggest c/f imaginable. She has to be furious.

This is good however, it points out that re Hillary there’s nothing there. Her entire career has been handed to her based on her marriage to Bill. She has Bill, little Bammie has affirmative action. They are both empty suits.

Every effort will be made to protect H.Clinton.

The last few days have been spent in damage assessment, risk assessment, determining what could be denied and what couldn’t be contained. The shredders were likely working overtime.

Now they’ve apparently decided that they have their story straight.

If H.Clinton is found to be directly culpable, Obama is directly culpable, as he appointed her, with literally zero foreign policy experience and a very skimpy resume, and its his policies that she was pursuing.

“We have seen circumstances in the past in other parts of the region where incidents that inflame opinion are taken advantage of, and exploited, by groups that have an interest in creating chaos and destabilizing their local governments, or attacking the West or the United States,” Carney said…

Gee, Carney, you mean incidents like spiking the football over Osama’s death or Hillary’s crowing about Qadaffi’s death, “We came, we saw, he died”? Those kinds of inflammatory incidents? And you had no reason to think that the anniversary of the September 11 attack on our nation was not a time for vigilance and extra security?

And you paid no attention to the push in Egypt to free the Blind Sheikh? Or the killing of the number two AlQuaeda capo was not a blinding light of an oncoming train?

How many rabid Islamist videos flooding the Internet are not causing heebie-jeebies and riots among peace-loving “infidels” around the world? Do you see the difference, Jay?

Gee, Carney, you mean incidents like spiking the football over Osama’s death or Hillary’s crowing about Qadaffi’s death, “We came, we saw, he died”? Those kinds of inflammatory incidents? And you had no reason to think that the anniversary of the September 11 attack on our nation was not a time for vigilance and extra security?

And you paid no attention to the push in Egypt to free the Blind Sheikh? Or the killing of the number two AlQuaeda capo was not a blinding light of an oncoming train?

How many rabid Islamist videos flooding the Internet are not causing heebie-jeebies and riots among peace-loving “infidels” around the world? Do you see the difference, Jay?

Good one. The Obama-Clinton cabbal lied, people died.
