REQUIRES A CONGRESSIONAL PROBE – AT 10:24 A.M. ET: As the administration continues its dishonest, indefensible line that the attacks on our embassies in the Mideast are due entirely to a YouTube video, we read this, from CNN:
Benghazi, Libya (CNN) -- Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.
Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security.
He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn't good for international business.
"The situation is frightening, it scares us," Mabrouk said they told the U.S. officials. He did not say how they responded.
The Libyan government has vowed to bring the perpetrators of the attack to justice. But on a visit to the heavily-damaged consulate, the country's president said Libya expected help form its friends in the international community.
Asked whether the government was not capable of controlling extremist groups, he responded "You are not far from the truth."
COMMENT: We are being lied to by our own government. The mainstream media does not seem all that upset. After all, would Barack lie to us? He is here to save us.
This cries out for a congressional investigation. Anyone home? Republicans?
