I'm Speechless.  
WTF Do I Say To This?
High-ranking State Dept. Official: 
Our Libya Security Plan 'Worked'

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444165804578008411144721162.html?mod=googlenews_wsj
State Department officials said security for the consulate was frequently reviewed and was deemed sufficient to counter what U.S. officials considered to be the most likely threat at the time: a limited hit-and-run attack with rocket-propelled grenades or improvised explosive devices, or IEDs.

There was a string of attacks in Benghazi in the months before Sept. 11, including a June 6 IED explosion outside the consulate compound. "These types of incidents were the ones that were our principal concerns," a senior State Department official said. Based on the outcome of the June 6 attack, in which a perimeter wall was damaged but no Americans hurt, a second State Department official added: "Our security plan worked."
Later on in the same interview with the reporter, one of the State Dept. geniuses says THIS: 
One senior State Department official described the Benghazi consulate as a "temporary office" that security officers treated as a "subsidiary" of the embassy in Tripoli, where more strenuous procedures and precautions were in place. "So Tripoli had the plan and the idea was that these people would just fall back on Tripoli, which they did in this situation, so it worked," the official said. [emphasis added]
'It worked'. You don't say? Take a bow then, guys.


Made a wrong turn on that fallback to Tripoli


Seriously, I'm so freaking mad right now I can't think straight. I'll be back with a rant later.

    1. In another 50 days or so on Nov. 6 you're gonna find out why trusting the MSM for your version of reality is a REALLY bad idea.

    2. Don't you think you're going to look pretty foolish if you're wrong? I mean, the swaggering, obnoxious tone you're taking in your constant "landslide" predictions makes you a sitting duck for some equally obnoxious payback.

      I certainly don't think it makes one bit of difference who's in office, but your rantings here have made me hope for Obama just so you have to eat crow and get it rubbed in your face.

    3. Yeah, I heard the same thing when Carter lost to Reagan.

      "Meh, it don't matter who's in there."

      Actually it does. So sell that BS somewhere else.

    4. Just so you know, you're talking to someone who's followed every election since Reagan - trailing Carter by 8 points in most of the polls - kicked Carter's ass in a landslide in 1980. Strange how the MSM/DNC Media Wing never saw that one coming either, eh?

      That's 1980, '84, '88, '92, '96, '00, '04 and '08's worth of experience here, not including the off year midterms.

      But if you want to keep on totally believing people who are inflating Democrats in their polls to double-digit advantages, if you ARE that dumb, hey go ahead.

      It's a free country.

    5. Working on a new post, here's a free preview: the MSM, desperate to keep Obama afloat, just spent the past week calling the race, saying Romney's lost with 50 days left. They very loudly shrieked to anybody who would listen that Romney's self-destructed, he's blown himself out of the water, etc. etc.

      Watch how funny this gets the next 2-3 weeks as Obama begins to drop back in the polls even though they keep desperately over-sampling Democrats by double-digits.

      The real fun starts after the first debate.

    6. The U.S. is screwed either way. Neither Obama or Romney give a shit about you. Not one single turd. They don't work for you.

      "The real fun?" Strange that you find this fun and funny when the country's doom is sealed.

    8. Please tell me more about this 'It doesn't matter who wins elections' idea you have.

      The country's not doomed once it gets some leadership. I don't have the warped view of the American people that you do.

    9. Remember, even the most GENEROUS polls place stupid Liberals as only around 20% of the population.

    10. It was all over the day they decided that corporations could buy elections. Your politicians, even your presidents are foot soldiers and PR flacks for corporations now. It isn't just in Romney's and Republican interests to largely eradicate the middle class - it's in all of their interest. They all allowed the economy to crash because they all just get richer. Create the disaster and profit. Power becomes more centralized and potent.

      While Obama did little in four years but dither, Congress ensured further destruction - also allowing the Democrats to handily blame the other guys.

      Going back to a couple of the first things I ever posted here: my best guess is that Obama was intended for two terms. Romney's designed to lose, but to also take the country's temperature for some of his party's more extreme rhetoric. But guys like Romney and McCain are still very much old school conservatives and they need to be phased out.

      Now the civil war going on within the Republican party is probably a very real thing and it should all come to a head in 2016 - by then things will be so bad or looking so bad, that a hardline Tea Party style Republican should have no problem coasting into office. The country will be ready then.

      It won't work in the long run; they're probably looking at about a ten to fifteen year run, but as long as they're all getting extremely rich, they don't care. It certainly won't work for your average American.

      I think you're in for four more years of Obama because it just makes sense.

      Delete
    11. Addendum: I admit that I'm not sure what a Romney win would mean. I guess it would blow my whole theory. He just doesn't seem hardline enough for the future the corporations are designing.

  2. If that is the outcome of a successful security plan that worked, I'd hate to see the outcome of one of their plans that needs a bit of tweaking, or even one that is a complete charlie foxtrot.
    And, anonymous, I must ask: if Brian's prediction is true and Obama loses big (I really hope), are you going to eat crow? Because many of us here will gladly rub it in your face.

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
