There goes the neighborhood: Islamists blamed for Benghazi attack moved next door to embassy months before

About two months ago I shared here information I was told about the terrorist attack in Benghazi. In that piece, I spoke of the “close proximity” of the staging area of the attack to the Benghazi Special Mission Compound (SMC). I mentioned Ansar al-Sharia as well as the February 17th Martyrs Brigade guarding the SMC.

Well, a funny thing just came to light. According to Foxnews.com, “Members of the Islamist extremist militia blamed for the Benghazi terror attack had moved in next door to the U.S. Consulate months before the strike but “nothing was done” despite concerns about the dangerous neighbors, sources tell Fox News. Sources say members of Ansar al-Sharia moved to the house just outside the east wall of the compound within three weeks of American personnel renting the facility, and later used the location to help plan and take part in the attack on the American Consulate on Sept. 11, 2012.”

“We warned D.C. about the guys who moved in next door, but nobody knew what to do and nothing was done,” a U.S. intelligence source said. According to one intelligence source, American security personnel specifically asked for an M240 machine gun to mount on the roof at the consulate for added protection, but were turned down repeatedly. A State Department source also confirmed to Fox News that “they asked for a belt-fed mounted machine gun, but were specifically denied by the State Department because they said it would upset the locals.”

Yep, that’s a nice “hearts and minds” rule of engagement often utilized. How’s that working out?

Of course when asked about these assertions at Monday’s press briefing, the State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf called the claims “dubious.”

Unfortunately for Ms. Harf, who previously attempted to discredit Bowe Bergdahl’s platoon members, a senior State Department official acknowledged that there was a request of some kind from the Benghazi post on Aug. 22. “It was being considered in Tripoli on the day of the attack. It was contained in a list of security requests, so to say that the request was rejected is inaccurate,” the official said.

So in the arena of shifting definitions, no, the request wasn’t rejected, it was just never considered — in fact, completly dismissed. The official said the department, though, has “no record” at this point of Ansar al-Sharia moving in next door.

On the contrary, one source with direct knowledge of the attack said, “The State Department knew it. Everyone on the ground knew it.” Another source said the sandbags were denied because “making shooting positions was too aesthetically unpleasing.”

And as Fox says, “in what has to be one of the worse cases of ‘outsourcing’” someone in the State Department needs to explain why an Islamist militia group, The February 17 Martyrs Brigade, was tapped to provide security at the U.S. compound in Benghazi.

Fox says, “not only did they not respond to help save American lives, but may have directly participated in the 2012 attack on Americans. The State department selected the militia over multiple other militia groups, private companies and even U.S. Marines to protect and secure the American consulate in Benghazi, despite the fact that those on the ground questioned the decision. As one special operator noted, “They may have been sold as the best option … but it was a terrible option. Only D.C. trusted them.”

I never like to say I told ya so, but Fox News’ Adam Housely just did.

    • I actually think that the administration is doing these things purposefully. The crap just keeps coming. It is a pattern of behavior. If it was just one or two things those are mistakes. This is a repeated concerted effort.

      • No offense, Christopher, but that is the only logical conclusion any reasonable person can make. Now where does that leave the democrats? Either they’re stupid, don’t follow the news at all, or only MSNBC, or loyalty to their party and to socialism is greater than any sense of right and wrong.

      • research new world order. and if you think that is a conspiracy theory, research Bush Sr’s state of the union address where he openly talks about it. Nothing is done to stop the corruption because they are working towards this goal…

      • The first time it’s a mistake. The second time it’s a decision. The third time it’s a pattern. Anything more…is tyranny.

  1. Oh well, no one will be held accountable for this mess. Typical of this Administration and State Department keep head in sand and find a way to transfer the blame. When that doesn’t work, just lie.

  2. December – 2013

    Events in the world of eschatology raced in 2013. Here is just a short list of how God’s end-time prophetic scenario moved ahead throughout the year:

    ➡︎ America’s complete betrayal of Israel. As Rep. Louie Gohmert says, “It was intentional and they had been putting pressure on Israel not to defend themselves. I’m told by people in Israel that you wouldn’t believe the pressure that this administration has brought to bear on Israel not to defend herself.” I stand by what I wrote on November 20 in my e-newsletter that many in the current U.S. administration are cheering for Israel’s annihilation. No, that’s not too strong of a comment.

    ➡︎ The predicted “perilous times” of II Timothy 3 have escalated. David Horowitz’s FrontPageMag asked in a headline on September 12, “What If Islamists Took Control of the White House?” On September 12, 2001, that was inconceivable. Today it is a reality.

    ➡︎ We have seen the rise of lawlessness starting with the highest leaders in the land. Laws are broken with the stroke of a pen. The U.S. Constitution is ignored by American leaders acting in a totalitarian manner. Such leadership lawlessness inevitably leads to the lawlessness of the people under them. Charles Krauthammer writes an insightful article about the “breathtaking lawlessness” of our times here. Matthew 24:12 refers to the rise of lawlessness in the last days.

    ➡︎ It was open season on Jews and Christians in 2013. Neither were safe. And the facts and truths of these stories were hidden by almost all media outlets except the Internet and Christian radio. The media will report perceived offenses to Muslims but not to Jews or Christians worldwide. In many countries, there is but a pile of ashes where once stood a church. This article calls the global war on Christians the “unreported catastrophe of our times.”

    ➡︎ Christians in the military were banned from sharing their faith (later rescinded). Such outfits as The American Family Association were called a “hate group.” The IRS asked Christian groups applying for non-profit status what the content of their prayers was. Such marginalization is predicted for the last days.

    ➡︎ If we are to look for signs in nature then we cannot dismiss the significance of one of the deadliest storms ever — Typhoon Haiyan that struck the Philippines late in the year. It will take years for the region to recover. There was “perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves with hearts fainting for fear . . . ” (Luke 21:25-27).

    ➡︎ Many are asking if Gog is rising? Vladmir Putin has made a resurgence in world influence thanks to the decline of America and her current weak leadership. Putin is viewed by some as a savior in the Middle East for holding off an invasion of Syria. Putin smells blood in the water and is in the process of seizing global leadership away from President Obama. Ezekiel 38-39 refer to Gog of the land of Magog, a national force that will invade Israel in the latter years. Magog is the land to the uttermost north of Israel.

    ➡︎ The Antichrist system is now in place. We learned in 2013 that spying is big business, even on American citizens. You are never alone! There is always somebody snooping over your shoulder! There is more info on you than you could imagine. Thus, the Antichrist system is being installed today. It will be ready to go when he arrives and he is crowned as a temporary king.

    ➡︎ Hating God became a passionate sport. Atheist churches are springing up around the world complete with sermons, songs, and offerings. They proclaim the “mock of ages,” not the “rock of ages.” God as the source of absolute truth and moral authority has to go! They have a “form of godliness” but deny its power (II Timothy 3). Their motto is, “I believe in life before death.”

    ➡︎ Cash isn’t dead yet but it is on life support. Even plastic could go by the wayside. The path is being made easy for an Antichrist system of global economic opportunity. It appears that Israel will be the world’s first cashless society…

    ➡︎ The further decline in man’s character as men and women in high places, who should be setting a high standard as to morals and behavior, displayed abysmal character traits. The highest leaders of our land are proud liars, cheaters, and workers of iniquity. And they never even blush about their seared consciences.This is foretold in many places but most obviously in II Timothy 3..

    ➡︎ The longing for a “man with a plan,” a “Mr.Fix-It,” grew more intense this year. Even actor Mel Gibson said,”Someone must rise from the ashes and save us.” He was referring to government instability and dysfunction. He does not know that the man waiting in the wings known as the Antichrist, will talk a good game but will set the world on its final deadly course.

    ➡︎ The great end-time apostasy marches on. While not all churches are dysfunctional, one study concludes nearly 150,000 America churches are nearly terminal. That’s almost 40% of U.S. churches. Frustration and conflict lead to a revolving door of pastors and apathy reigns within many. Folks will flock to false teachers and to seeker-sensitive churches where the true gospel is never preached.

  3. They couldn’t obtain any machine guns, because obam bam and bolder already sold them all to the terrorist. This criminal empire is selling everything they can get their hands on along with selling us out. I would even bet with the change of guard they created at our Nuke silos that they’re even selling that arsenal as well. When are they going to be held accountable for treason?

  4. Name calling & over the top Obama bashing only fuels the left’s hatred for us. Be honest with respect – stay the course, being steadfast & loyal.

      • I agree, they are blinded by religious bigotry & hatred fueled by ignorance. But I was talking about our national English speaking forum.

    • It doesn’t matter if you’re “honest and respectful,” liberals are blind to the destruction Obama is causing and will automatically lob personal insults! it’s all they have–they have no facts….

    • Not stupid—-their decisions consistently help them achieve their objectives. What we perceive as failures, they believe as big successes. Example: The border crisis now happening in Texas: The administration is THRILLED with this—-they will turn it to their advantage by stalling things long enough to finally say, “Oh, these children have been here too long to send back, let’s make them citizens (and Democrat voters).” Then the “children” will be allowed to bring extended family adult relatives to the U.S. to take care of them (yeah, right, we’ll be taking care of all of them). As long as we don’t have a GOP that fights for sanity, things will be insane.

      • Your last sentence is the most painful of all. I could handle the betrayal of obama if there were some organized effort to stop him. All I see is lip service from everyone. The citizens don’t matter at all. It is obvious that only the politico’s personal power and fortune are their concerns and anything goes to keep it. Special interests and big campaign donations rule the U.S.A. on both sides of the isle. Democrats are more agenda driven idealogs and republicans are more selfish individual interest driven, neither are concerned about the founding principles of our once great country, both are dangerous. They don’t represent the average citizen at all, they all have lost touch and haven’t a clue as to who we really are. They see us a pain in their collective asses and wish we would just sit down and shut up. That may just happen to, everyone one I talk to is tired of caring and are giving up and retreating. God help us all.

      • ALL Americans MUST join together and stand AGAINST this! We, the cash-strapped tax payers, can NOT afford to support all of these illegal invaders! Close and Protect our Borders, and Deport all illegals!

  5. It upsets me for the president to have so many armed guards and mounted machine guns on the white house. It also upsets me that he has an armored car. Because it’s all touchy and feely now, maybe he should think about getting rid of those and saving the taxpayers some money.

  6. Hillary did not accept the job in order to do the job she purely accepted it in order to advance herself politically.

    • I know, Right? The Democrats need to be reminded that Republicans were going to stand WITH them to Impeach Richard Nixon over 18 minutes of erased audio tape, before he resigned. What Obama has done is MUCH, MUCH WORSE! Why do the Democrats continue to support each one of his disgusting scandals?

  7. i’M SO TIRED OF READING THE TRUTH ABOUT THAT WHITE HOUSE SOB’S WHEN DOES THE IMPEACHMENT COME THROUGH. THEY HAVETO PAY THE PIPER, THEY MUST GO TO PRISON FOR LIFE OR HANG THEM IN FRONT OF THE WHITE HOUSE SO THE REST OF THE TRAITORS WATH THEIR ASS.

IF I WAS YOUNGER I WOULD MAKE A CITIZENS ARREST ON A LOT OF THESE A–H—-. GOD HELP US, OUR LAND, AND OUR CHILDREN

    • On several different sites, I have read that the reason there has been NO White House statement regarding the wherabouts of Obama on the night of the Benghazi attack, because he was in bed, “incapacitated by cocaine.” Now we know why. He’s not even man enough to stand up to what he had done….

  8. This is an impressive band of psychotics that visit this site. Is this some sort of outreach 12 step program for lunatics?

    • Yes the lies after lies after lies after lies from this administration comes to light and the people on this site are the lunatics. You need to open your eyes clown. Keep buying into the b.s. for fear of being called a racist or as you say a “lunatic.” Who’s really crazy, the people who stand up against the corrupt or those who turn a blind eye to it and allow it to happen over and over and over again?

      • I would say that you should run over to prison planet. Wait! no need this must be an affiliate. And just because you’re on an African Americans conspiracy page, that doesn’t disqualify you from your bigotry. In fact, it enforces the case. Only a racist brings up race. Well done sir.

      • Hardly a conspiracy, NWO…and you know it. Or perhaps you’re a low-level Ministry of Propaganda shill and do what you’re told. At any rate, thank God that those “in the know” are willing to share the truth. Casting aspersions may sew seeds of doubt amongst the uneducated; but won’t fly among those who’ve been there.

      • Who do “You” think is “In the know”? Just referencing anyone that doesn’t share in your views, as a member of any” ministry of propaganda”, suggests that you indeed are a conspiracy theorist. Any thoughts on the moon landing hoax? Building 7?

      • Read Spook’s CV. That will be a start for you, NWO. Nothing wrong with theory. Conspiracy? Well, I’m educated enough to see what I see and do some simple arithmetic. On the o the hand, we know nothing of you. Perhaps you can offer us some respectable credentials? My guess is that you are either a strong Obama supporter or a diehard Libertarian. The political spectrum is a circle and those two are right next to each other, facing opposite directions.

      • How is it and where have revealed a single thing regarding your supposed credentials? What a buffonish request. It’s clear that you’re uneducated on any number of levels. No citing required. My guess is that you’re a right wing loon with a clear narcissistic complex. Get over yourself jacktard.

      • It’s not my blog, NWO…and I’m not critiquing the author. I AM uneducated on many levels. I admit it. But you might be perceived something more than a malcontent if you would provide your expertise rather than a bitch-rant. And it is “buffoonish.” As long as you’re making up words, why not spell the root word correctly. Public schooling?

      • Hey chuck…You get the gist right? Yes public school you clascist POS. Please stop trying to add any half arsed pseudo intellectual legitimacy to anything this war criminal espouses. You look like a fool. Are you angling for a spot in his administration? Hilarious!

      • LOL, I look like a fool? “Clascist”? Another “-ist” from the Progressives? Have to admit, that’s a new one on me! Wouldn’t it be classist? Well, let’s put our foolishness to a vote on here, shall we? Man, you really get emotional! LOL.

      • Who cares? So you still go with the video causing all that, huh? Now who is the conspiracy theorist? Guess you didnt get the memo!

      • Seems you are a racist as well. If all it takes is mentioning it! Hey, that makes me one too. How about that!

      • You’re a clown. There you go throwing around words like racist and bigot. I’d be willing to bet you don’t even know what a bigot is. In fact your own actions have shown everyone just how much of a bigot you actually are. You come onto a conservative website and you make completely false claims, with zero fact behind any of your thinking and then you refuse to change your own opinion based on facts that have already been proven, yet you still act like your opinion is valid. You are hating on an entire group of people based on an idea we all believe in. You read a specific persons opinions and then come back with completely false things that had absolutely nothing to do with the original point. When you add all that together you’re the pure definition of a bigot. Your ways have been proven false time and time again, yet you refuse to see the light. Anyway my original point is valid, you throw up words like bigot, lunatic, racist, etc. when you’re completely confused on the real subjects. In fact being Hawaiian I can tell you are completely confused and don’t understand race relations. Being a multiracial individual it was fairly easy for me to realize that Liberals throw around words such as racist, bigot, etc. to try and confuse those too stupid to look at the actual facts. It’s gotten so bad that even the uneducated people in this country are finally starting to see through it. The Liberals have cried wolf so many times their uninformed voters no longer come running. I suppose next you’ll tell me I’m a racist for not letting this country be overrun with illegals (men, women and children.) You’re either a clown or you’re one of those uneducated Liberals who just can’t seem to see the bigger picture. I’ll tell you one thing though, those minorities you claim to represent want jobs, not over 15 million new citizens. Just remember they’re not as stupid as you think. They’re starving and living in shacks, meanwhile they see you guys busing in thousands of South American children every day. I guess they’re all racists too.

      • This diatribe confirms your narcissism and unique brand of bigotry. No one cares what you have written here. I still think you’re angling for a role in the West administration. As it appears this goofy website is the only thing this criminal will find himself administering. You’re also apparently a xenophobic lunatic. You’re not Hawaiian, and even that would make you no expert on race relations. You’re a clown and thin skinned howli

  9. Why didnt they just put up a sign saying “Come on and kill us, we dont want to upset you. If you have a death wish, work for the Obama administration
