REPORT: Obama administration warned about attacks, did nothing

The more details surface about the attacks on the U.S. Embassies in Egypt and Libya, the more disturbing they are. First, there are shocking reports about the Ambassador possibly being sexually assaulted before being killed. Also, reports are indicating that Obama knew about the elevated warnings and did nothing.

TheBlaze reported:

Senior diplomatic sources say the U.S. State Department had credible information, 48 hours prior to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the embassy in Cairo, that American locations may be targeted, however, no warnings were issued, no “lock down” orders given, The Independent reports.

On Tuesday, a mob of radical Islamists stormed the consulate in Benghazi, killing U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in a fiery assault. Officials say the murders of the four men were likely the result of “a serious and continuing security breach,” the report states.

The Independent has also reported that sensitive documents have been taken from the embassy:

American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.

The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".

Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted.

"If we can't see the difference between good and evil, if you can't see that a president continually lies to your face, if you can't see that a man who has not been to a briefing in two weeks, has only gone in the last year to 4‑ ‑‑ is it 38% of his briefings, that we had a warning 48 hours in advance and this president didn't put out an alert to the embassies, that the guy he assigned to Libya was flying in to Libya after the warning had come in and he didn't alert him!  That while that ambassador was being sodomized on the street and killed and our NOC list was being taken, the president didn't even have the wherewithal, the care to stay awake, to find out what was going to happen, how he could help, to brainstorm to bring somebody in with an idea on what we should be doing.  He decided to go to sleep.  Oh, my gosh.  America, character matters," Glenn said in response to the news.

Glenn said that when he was driving into work this morning in New York City, he watched the people on the street and wondered how they couldn't recognize the failure of leadership that America is currently experiencing. Is everyone just too wrapped up in their own lives to realize what is happening? Are people paying attention to what is going on in the Middle East? Will Barack Obama be re-elected because Americans were ignorant of where he really stands on the issues and what his actions have meant for the country?

"Now, I'm driving down the street. I'm thinking, how long before they go after the bottles? And I'm looking at the people and I'm wondering, how long before you people wake up? How much more? And then I saw people for being people, not just stupid New Yorkers. And I saw a woman who's walking down and she was carrying her purse and she was smoking and she was rushing to work. And I started to think, 'What is her life like? Where is she going? What does she do for a living?'"

"I saw another guy who was jogging and he had tennis shoes and black socks. He ‑‑ I mean, he looked like he came right out of 1970. And I thought, 'Who is your wife? How does she let you out of the door with black socks and shorts?' He was like 45 years old. 'Who are you listening to? Does your wife even look at you anymore? Do your kids say, hey, Dad, stop with the black socks'? I wondered what he did for a living," he continued.

"As I saw somebody just kind of meander down the street, I saw somebody else behind them. It was a guy probably about 50 years old and he was a little pudgy, he was a little out of shape like me and he was carrying two big, heavy boxes. I wondered, 'What's in the box? Where are you taking it? What do you do for a living?' I notice he had two cellphones."

"The reason why I bring this up is because I looked at those people and I thought, how much, how much time do they have to do their own homework? Most of us are fighting for our lives just to get home, just to be with the kids. That guy probably doesn't have any other socks except black ones with the shorts because he probably wears a suit every day and that's just kind of the world he lives in. He was probably going jogging because the doctor said, 'You've got to get some exercise, man.' And it's something new. He's probably fighting for his health and his wife probably doesn't care about the socks. She probably just cares about having him alive. 'I don't care what you ‑‑ I know your father looks ridiculous in the socks, but he's doing something. He's trying to get into shape.'"

"Is it that we have been so duped, that we are so in debt that we are ‑‑ we are living to work, not working to live? Let's give America the benefit of the doubt, that they're just busy, tired, and misguided in their priorities."

Glenn emphasized, however, that character matters - and in the end whatever the excuses are we cannot afford to have four more years where America heads down the wrong direction.

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

Here are 3 ways the 'Inflation Reduction Act' WILL impact you (Hint: NOT by reducing inflation)

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.

CNN’s Brian Stelter had a shocking moment of clarity Sunday when he acknowledged what everyone but the liberal media has known since before the 2020 presidential election: President Joe Biden's son Hunter has been up to some seriously dubious dealings overseas, and his father was almost certainly involved despite his repeated claims to the contrary.

On "Reliable Sources" Sunday, Stelter spoke with first lady Jill Biden's former press secretary, Michael LaRosa, about whether Biden is likely to seek a second term in 2024.

“I hope he runs, and I know he’s going to run. I think he's planning to run ... I don't see why he wouldn't run,” LaRosa stammered.

"What about his son? What about Hunter?" Stelter cut in. “Hunter [is] under federal investigation, charges could be coming at any time. This is not just a right-wing media story. This is a real problem for the Bidens."

Unluckily for Stelter, "The Hill's" Joe Concha can remember all the way back to the fall of 2020:


On a recent episode of Glenn TV, Glenn Beck discussed the most recent findings in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Don't get distracted by the seemingly endless stream of scandalous photos and videos, Glenn warns, it's what's coming out about Hunter's overseas business dealings that should be all over the media, because Joe Biden is involved too.
