face it - the whole "Arab Spring" thing blew up in Obama's face and the State Department was involved in covering up their colossal blunder in backing the Muslim Brotherhood and de-stabilizing the whole M.E.
U.S. had early indications Libya attack tied to organized militants
.(Reuters) - Within hours of last month's attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, President Barack Obama's administration received about a dozen intelligence reports suggesting militants connected to al Qaeda were involved, three government sources said.
Despite these reports, in public statements and private meetings, top U.S. officials spent nearly two weeks highlighting intelligence suggesting that the attacks were spontaneous protests against an anti-Muslim film, while playing down the involvement of organized militant groups.
It was not until last Friday that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's office issued an unusual public statement, which described how the picture that intelligence agencies presented to U.S. policymakers had "evolved" into an acknowledgement that the attacks were "deliberate and organized" and "carried out by extremists."
Maybe Obama should consider arming our embassies instead of Mexican drug cartels.
