THE BENGHAZI ATTACK & THE U.S.

Updated on September 18, 2012

The U.S. must keep going back to it until some real answers were found.

It would be difficult for the Obama administration to insist that the attack on the United States outpost in Benghazi, Libya. was not planned or even pre-planned, because, while there was news that a demonstration was going on at the U.S. embassy in Cairo, Egypt, no such report came before the fires to the consulate in Benghazi were seen on TV.

9/11 should be a date that the U.S. should remind itself that anything could happen, as the terrorists, who had planned it, still had residue factions and sympathizers operating around the world. That was the reason why the intelligent community and the CIA should be vigilant at all times, especially when Americans were remembering that day.

The Benghazi attack was deadly, and that should be taken into account more than it being "spontaneous", as flames could not flare up all of a sudden in any situation. It took time and planning, however short that time was, to commit any kind of arson; and to jump to the conclusion that the Benghazi attack did not have any professional or paramilitary terrorist touch to it would be a mistake.

Even the Libyan Head of State has denied the spontaneity of the attack that took place in his country on NBC's 'Face the Nation', thus,
"Libya President Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf said that there was 'no doubt' the attack in Benghazi that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others dead was pre planned by foreigners." 09/17/2012.

That alone should change or reinforce the dynamics, to give more weight to the approach that the U.S. should embark upon to resolve the Benghazi case in which an Ambassador and three diplomats met their untimely deaths.

A thorough investigation by the administration and the authorities in Libya should be the main consideration to find out how it happened and by whom; and when the perpetrators were caught, as they should be, they would be tried in a U.S. court of law, since the compound of the consulate was diplomatically part of the U.S.

People might take it for granted, but 9/11 started a protracted war, and it was not going to end by killing Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of that atrocity; particularly as his followers would never stop to seek a vendetta for the U.S. Navy Seals taking him out.

For that, there would be no need to suggest that the U.S. should always be vigilant, both at home and abroad, to figure out what al Qaeda, especially, was up to in all parts of the world. Though, the group has suffered a tremendous loss of leadership, it was inherently on the move to get revenge at the expense of the U.S.

The Benghazi raid on a consulate should, therefore, not be ruled out as "spontaneous", and that "the situation may have been exploited by militants." as the administration was purporting: but it deserved President Barack Obama's full attention to set out a comprehensive investigative undertaking into it (raid), as said before.

Libya's own findings should be coordinated with what the U.S. was doing to get to the bottom of the issue, as those, who committed that crime, whether they were part of a mainstream terror organization or a splinter group, should be brought to justice without farther delay.

The families of Ambassador Chris Stevens and those who perished with him would want that to happen, and so would all of Americans, without party divide.

Though, it was only a few days ago that the four diplomats met their deaths in Benghazi; we have to keep going back to it, until some tangible answers were found. Their dying would never be in vain.

      Doesn't anyone think that removing security at Benghazi on 9/11, was just too stupid for anyone to have done - therefore it must have been deliberate (and here is "the real reason", Obama Staged the Benghazi Attack) and therefore when " the real reason" failed and people died they had to coverup and it explains why the administration is so"friendly" to the Muslim brotherhood.

      I for one would give the story a high degree of credibility for several reasons:

      1. The left has waited for many years to own the white house and will stop at nothing to retain that power.

      2. Nothing ever happens at the highest levels of government that makes absolutely no sense (like removing security from Benghazi) based on the apparent evidence. There is always a scenario that makes absolute sense of the situation but for which the evidence has been covered up or destroyed, witnesses promoted or otherwise silenced (convenient suicide or accidental death) and a scape goat or incompetence left to be the default blame.

      3. How is it that career professionals in Government ALWAYS seem to exercise judgement and take actions that defy the common sense of a layman (Rices statements 5 days later)? - only an indication that someone else is pulling their strings.

      4. Think out of the box, brain storm the wildest scenarios and then whittle them down to the most feasible and most probably least palatable one and then go get the bad guys (hasn't anyone seen "Castle"?)
