A State Department security chief who was said to have resigned last week after the release of a scathing report about security lapses at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in the run-up to the terror attack that killed four Americans reportedly is still on the department’s payroll.
The New York Post – reports that Eric Boswell, the assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, has not resigned from the department, as a State Department spokeswoman indicated Dec. 19. Boswell is instead just “switching desks,” according to the report.
Three other State Department officials, including Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary responsible for embassy security, were placed on administrative leave after the release of the report. However, according to the Post they are expected to return.
The State Department-ordered investigation of the attack found that “systemic failures” had left the consulate facility in Libya inadequately protected.
The report, which was presented to Congress by an independent review board on Dec. 18, also concluded that no protest preceded the attack, despite earlier claims made by the Obama administration.
The State Department responded to the New York Post’s questions about the employment status of Boswell and other officials by reissuing an earlier statement confirming Boswell’s decision to resign.
Al Qaeda’s expansion in Libya, following the successful terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on Sept. 11, is part of a long-term plan by Al Qaeda senior leadership, according to a seasoned counterterrorism investigator.
“Al Qaeda’s leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has long had his sights on Libya, and what he devised long ago was a plan to send senior operatives from Pakistan and elsewhere into Libya to build up Al Qaeda’s clandestine network,” Tom Joscelyn, a senior fellow with Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told Fox News.
Joscelyn, who is well known in the counterterrorism world for his “drill-down” on Al Qaeda operatives, said the vacuum left after the attack in Benghazi has created another opening which has allowed the terrorist network to “capitalize on the anti-American momentum and to show how they do have cards to play around the world.”
According to an August report by the Library of Congress in conjunction with military analysts, at least two Al Qaeda operatives — Abu Anas al Libi and Abd al Baset Azzouz — answer directly to Zawahiri.
Joscelyn said a “witches’ brew” of three basic elements now creates fertile ground in Libya for the establishment of a safe haven. They include those dispatched by Al Qaeda senior leadership in Pakistan; the Al Qaeda affiliate in North Africa known as Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb; and local militias which are sympathetic to Al Qaeda and led by former Guantanamo detainee Abu Sufian Ben Qumu.

We first hear about Susan Rice During Michael Dukakis’s 1988 bid for president, where she served as a foreign policy aide.
She later served in various capacities in the Clinton Administration from 1993 t0 2001. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright who was a long time mentor and family friend to Rice,urged President Clinton, in 1997, to appoint her as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs. She served as the 12th Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs from 1997 to 2001.
In 2002, she joined the Brookings Institution as senior-fellow in the Foreign Policy program. In an article in the Daly Bell, the Brookings Institution is described “…like other think tanks, the Brookings Institute’s real purpose is to justify big government for the power elite.”
In january, 2009, Susan Rice became the 27th United States Ambassador to the United Nations for the Barack Obama Administration.
As a result of recent Congressional criticism about her handling of the Administrations Benghazi Debacle, Susan Rice’s career has come under scrutiny with some very disturbing conclusions and had John McCain calling her “Unfit” for the job.
In a November 29th Wall Street Journal Article , The Trouble With Susan Rice – The would-be secretary of state’s record on Iran, Israel, human rights and more by Anne Bayefsky and Michael B. Mukasey, they point out her utter diplomatic disregard for Israel’s case against a Nuclear Iran as follows:
“Senators might also explore Ms. Rice’s broader record at the U.N. Why, for example, did she think it was appropriate to absent herself from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s September speech to the General Assembly, the purpose of which was to offer the global community a painstaking explanation of why Iran must be stopped before it can weaponize its growing stock of enriched uranium.”

30 Reasons Why Susan Rice Should Not Get Promoted
By Richard Grenell Thursday, November 29, 2012
Ambassador Susan Rice had nothing to do with Benghazi, as President Obama told us, but she appeared on five Sunday political talk shows anyway. On those shows, Rice mouthed talking points that weren’t true. We now know that the talking points did not match the intel reports, which she had complete access to. While the national media debates whether or not she knowingly mislead the public on the Sunday shows, her failings and shortcomings before the Benghazi terrorist attacks have not received the attention they deserve.
Here are 30 reasons (that have nothing to do with Benghazi) why Susan Rice should not get a promotion.
1. failed to call an emergency meeting of the Security Council after the 2010 Haiti earthquake 2. skipped the Security Council debate and vote to add new UN Peacekeepers in Haiti after the earthquake 3. led the US during the most inactive Security Council since 1991 during her first year as Ambassador 4. held her first press conference with the UN Secretary General on the pressing international issue of texting while driving 5. failed to speak out when Col. Gaddafi’s Libya was elected to the UN Human Rights Commission 6. waited 17 months before voting on the one and only UN resolution on Iran passed during her tenure 7. dismissed by Hillary Clinton from negotiating most of the Iran resolution with the French 8. lost the support of more nations on her one Iran resolution than the previous five Iran resolutions combined 9. took 103 days to move the Security Council to issue a statement after a North Korean submarine sank the South Korean ship that killed 46 sailors 10. took 18 days to lead the Security Council to action after a North Korean nuclear test (it took John Bolton 5 days in 2006) 11. failed to support the Iranian opposition during their Green Revolution 12. failed to speak out when Iran was elected to the UN Women’s Commission 13. skipped the UN Security Council’s emergency meeting on the Gaza flotilla crisis 14. snubbed Israel to the point they skipped President Obama’s 2010 UN speech 15. took more than 2 years to find someone to head America’s UN reform team 16. failed to address the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to ascertain how erroneous scientific claims were added to official UN reports 17. painfully slow in getting a UN resolution on the Sudan-South Sudan referendum 18. ignored Canada’s pleas for help in getting elected to the Security Council 19. negotiated with the UN’s Arab Group to condemn Israel’s settlements 20. failed to lead the Security Council during Tunisia’s Arab Spring protests 21. didn’t speak out on the Libya crisis until the French, British and Arab League had done so 22. failed to attend the first Security Council meeting on the Arab Spring protests 23. failed to get the support of allies India, Germany and Brazil on the UN’s Libya resolution 24. failed to lead the Security Council during Egypt’s Arab Spring protests 25. failed to lead the Security Council during Yemen’s Arab Spring protests 26. failed to lead the Security Council to confront Bashar al-Assad’s brutal violence where US resolutions received an unprecedented three vetoes on three different votes 27. agreed to send former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to Syria where he failed miserably 28. skipped the last open meeting before the planned UN vote to recognize Palestinian statehood 29. failed to speak out when Iran was elected vice president of the Global Arms Treaty negotiations 30. delayed Security Council action and the UN report on Rwanda

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack several hours later was denied by officials in the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to “stand down.” Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight. At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators. Watch “Special Report Investigates: Death and Deceit in Benghazi” on Fox News at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, 3 p.m. on Sunday and 10 p.m. on Sunday. A Special Operations team, or CIF which stands for Commanders in Extremis Force, operating in Central Europe had been moved to Sigonella, Italy, but they too were told to stand down. A second force that specializes in counterterrorism rescues was on hand at Sigonella, according to senior military and intelligence sources. According to those sources, they could have flown to Benghazi in less than two hours. They were the same distance to Benghazi as those that were sent from Tripoli. Specter gunships are commonly used by the Special Operations community to provide close air support. According to sources on the ground during the attack, the special operator on the roof of the CIA annex had visual contact and a laser pointing at the Libyan mortar team that was targeting the CIA annex. The operators were calling in coordinates of where the Libyan forces were firing from. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday that there was not a clear enough picture of what was occurring on the ground in Benghazi to send help. “There’s a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here,” Panetta said Thursday. “But the basic principle here … is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on.” Fox News has learned that there were two military surveillance drones redirected to Benghazi shortly after the attack on the Consulate began. They were already in the vicinity. The second surveillance craft was sent to relieve the first drone, perhaps due to fuel issues. Both were capable of sending real time visuals back to U.S. officials in Washington, D.C. Any U.S. official or agency with the proper clearance, including the White House Situation Room, State Department, CIA, Pentagon and others, could call up that video in real time on their computers. Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were part of a Global Response Staff or GRS that provides security to CIA case officers and provides countersurveillance and surveillance protection. They were killed by a mortar shell at 4 a.m. Libyan time, nearly seven hours after the attack on the Consulate began — a window that represented more than enough time for the U.S. military to send back-up from nearby bases in Europe, according to sources familiar with Special Operations. Four mortars were fired at the annex. The first one struck outside the annex. Three more hit the annex. A motorcade of dozens of Libyan vehicles, some mounted with 50 caliber machine guns, belonging to the February 17th Brigades, a Libyan militia which is friendly to the U.S., finally showed up at the CIA annex at approximately 3 a.m. An American Quick Reaction Force sent from Tripoli had arrived at the Benghazi airport at 2 a.m. (four hours after the initial attack on the Consulate) and was delayed for 45 minutes at the airport because they could not at first get transportation, allegedly due to confusion among Libyan militias who were supposed to escort them to the annex, according to Benghazi sources. The American special operators, Woods, Doherty and at least two others were part of the Global Response Staff, a CIA element, based at the CIA annex and were protecting CIA operators who were part of a mission to track and repurchase arms in Benghazi that had proliferated in the wake of Muammar Qaddafi’s fall. Part of their mission was to find the more than 20,000 missing MANPADS, or shoulder-held missiles capable of bringing down a commercial aircraft. According to a source on the ground at the time of the attack, the team inside the CIA annex had captured three Libyan attackers and was forced to hand them over to the Libyans. U.S. officials do not know what happened to those three attackers and whether they were released by the Libyan forces. Fox News has also learned that Stevens was in Benghazi that day to be present at the opening of an English-language school being started by the Libyan farmer who helped save an American pilot who had been shot down by pro-Qaddafi forces during the initial war to overthrow the regime. That farmer saved the life of the American pilot and the Ambassador wanted to be present to launch the Libyan rescuer’s new school.

State Department emails from day of Libya attack show Al Qaeda-tied group on radar
By Chad Pergram Published October 23, 2012 FoxNews.com
A series of internal State Department emails obtained by Fox News shows some of the initial assessments of last month’s deadly consulate attack in Libya, including one email within hours of the attack that noted the group Ansar al Sharia had claimed responsibility.
The emails provide some of the most detailed information to surface about what officials knew in the initial hours after the attack. And it again raises questions about why U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice, apparently based on intelligence assessments, would claim five days after the attack that it was a ‘spontaneous’ reaction to protests over an anti-Islam film. Ansar al Sharia has been declared by the State Department to be an Al Qaeda-affiliated group. A member of the group suspected of participating in the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi has been arrested and is being held in Tunisia. The emails obtained by Fox News were sent by the State Department to a variety of national security platforms, whose addresses have been redacted, including the White House Situation Room, the Pentagon, the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence. Fox News was told that an estimated 300 to 400 national security figures received these emails in real time almost as the raid was playing out and concluding. People who received these emails work directly under the nation’s top national security, military and diplomatic officials, Fox News was told. The timestamps on the emails are all Eastern Time and often include the subheading SBU…which is shorthand for “Sensitive But Unclassified.” The third email came at 6:07 p.m. ET and was sent to a different email list but still includes the White House Situation Room address and a subject line of “Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack (SBU).” “Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli,” the email reads. Earlier emails did not go into who might have been responsible for the attack. The first email indicates that U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and other personnel were “in the compound safe haven.” Officials later discovered that Stevens and three other Americans had died in the attack. The first email was sent at 4:05 p.m. ET with the subject line “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack (SBU).” “The Regional Security Officer reports the diplomatic mission is under attack,” the email reads. “Embassy Tripoli reports approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM personnel are in the compound safe haven. The 17th of February militia is providing security support. “The operations Center will provide updates as available.” The second email came at 4:54 p.m. ET, with a subject line “Update 1: U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi (SBU)” “Embassy Tripoli reports the firing at the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi has stopped and the compound has been cleared. A response team is on site attempting to locate COM personnel.”
Trevor Loudon recorded this video a couple of weeks ago. It is His message to America. In it, Trevor Loudon attempt to explain the global implications of the upcoming US elections.
This election is the most crucial in modern American history. It is not primarily about jobs and economics, it is about national security and, to be blunt, national survival.
America, and indeed the entire Western World, faces destruction if communist sympathizer Barack Obama is returned to office.
This video is being distributed all over the United States. Please watch it, and if you agree with the basic ideas expressed, send it out through your networks, to as many people as you can, conservative, liberal, undecided, it doesn’t matter.
Sometimes it takes an outside view to clarify important matters. Trevor Loudon hopes this message will serve that purpose.
