Taking Back America!
Fox News reports today that the US State Dept had sent emails stating that "the group Ansar al Sharia had claimed responsibility" within hours of the attack in Libya. This proves, without a doubt that the President has misled the country on this entire matter.
A series of internal State Department emails obtained by Fox News shows some some of the initial assessments of last month's deadly consulate attack in Libya, including one email within hours of the attack that noted that the group Ansar al Sharia had claimed responsibility.
Ansar al Sharia has been declared by the State Department to be a 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 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).”
For those of you that think that our government does not or would not lie to us you need to wake up and get your head out of the sand. This country was formed by people who did not trust their government. If we want to remain a free people we must never forget that. Government is force and should not be trusted.
The people of this country need to take a stand and demand accountability from those that we send to Washington to represent us. Rand Paul is a rare shining example of how our politicians should act. We need many more like him.
