Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The Washington Post is the last place I figured I would see this.
But, according to The Post, the senate report says the attack on Benghazi could have been prevented. Reports say they knew there was a substantial risk for those who were there and you know by now, four American diplomats were killed.
The senate plan says the senate panel is a fault for not providing enough security. The report also states the CIA and State Department had both sent "general warning notices to facilities worldwide" about possible attacks on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, Al Qaeda attacks on the United States.
The Post reports:
The committee said murky intelligence reporting in the immediate aftermath of the attacks led to confused or erroneous public statements by "policy makers" who initially blamed the attack on a protest against a anti-Islamic video produced in the United States that had appeared on the Internet. The committee said U.S. spy agencies "took too long to correct these erroneous reports."
Other reports on the matter related to this say a high ranking general and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta knew this was indeed a terror attack. I guess we are to believe the Secretary of Defense never got around to telling the president about a terror attack.
Indeed. We'll see what else come out.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
