This is simply incredible, but now we know why the Obama regime lied to the American people for so long, spinning the armed terrorist attack that destroyed the American Consulate in Benghazi, and ended with the deaths of four brave Americans, as a “spontaneous protest. The regime is grossly incompetent, and the president, more concerned with fundraising and golf scores, is incredibly guilty here.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee released a statement today outlining the failures of the Obama regime, including the fact that repeated pleas for additional security forces fell on deaf ears:
Oversight Presses for Answers: Diplomats in Libya Requested Additional Security, Washington Officials Denied the Resources
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee leaders today sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking why requests for more protection were denied to the U.S. mission in Libya by Washington officials prior to the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. The denials came after repeated attacks and security threats to U.S. personnel.
“Based on information provided to the Committee by individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya, the attack that claimed the ambassador’s life was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012. It was clearly never, as Administration officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest,” the committee’s chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and subcommittee chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, write. “In addition, multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the Committee that, prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington.”
The letter outlines 13 security threats over the six months prior to the attack.
“Put together, these events indicated a clear pattern of security threats that could only be reasonably interpreted to justify increased security for U.S. personnel and facilities in Benghazi,” the chairmen write.
The Committee indicated it intends to convene a hearing in Washington on Wednesday October 10, 2012, on the security failures that preceded the attack.
There’s more. Eli Lake over at The Daily Beast reports the Consulate in Benghazi was attacked twice in a lead up to the September 11 slaughters:
Jihadists twice set off explosives at the consulate prior to the incident that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, and announced threats on Facebook about escalating attacks on Western targets in the run-up to the 9/11 anniversary, according to whistleblowers reaching out to House Republicans.

We have 300 dead Mexicans, and at least two federal agents, Brian Terry and Jaimie Zapata, due to Obama’s incompetence in the Fast & Furious scandal. Now we have four dead American heroes in Libya. Barack Obama is becoming a mass murderer on the scale of psychopaths like Che Guevara. Never in America history have we had such a man in the White House.
If I were Mitt Romney I would demand Barack Obama’s immediate resignation, as a start. I would demand it repeatedly until either Obama resigns, or is defeated in the November elections. The Obama reign of terror has been brutal on the American people, but these murders, all of which were preventable, fall directly on Barack Obama’s head. He must be punished, and Mitt Romney needs to be leading this battle.
America’s must never forget that, thanks to Barack Obama, Ambassador Chris Stevens was dragged through the streets of Benghazi by Muslim savages, reportedly sodomized, then slaughtered. Others are complicit in the four murders in Libya, people like Hillary Clinton, but Obama is the Commander-in-Chief and was AWOL. All responsible parties must be held accountable to the American people. Justice demands it.
