Benghazi: Battle of the Timeline

Tuesday, about 6 AM, before the attack in Benghazi (all times Eastern): BLAMES VIDEO

Tuesday, 10:08 PM: Clinton Confirms Death of One American in Libya (BLAMES VIDEO)

Tuesday, 10:10 PM: Politico reports Obama Administration disavows Embassy Statement

Wednesday, 7:22 AM: President Confirms Death of the Ambassador and Three Others


“Americans woke up this morning with tragic news and felt heavy hearts as they considered that individuals who have served in our diplomatic corps were brutally murdered across the world. This attack on American individuals and embassies is outrageous, it’s disgusting. It breaks the hearts of all of us who think of these people who have served, during their lives, the cause of freedom, and justice and honor. We mourn their loss and join together in prayer that the spirit of the Almighty might comfort the families of those who have been so brutally slain.
    FOUR DIPLOMATS LOST THEIR LIFE (sic)….”America will not tolerate attacks against our citizens and against our embassies. We will defend also our constitutional RIGHTS OF SPEECH and assembly and religion…
    I also believe the Administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in Egypt instead of condemning their actions. It’s never too early for the United States Government to condemn attacks on Americans, and to defend our values. THE WHITE HOUSE FINALLY DISTANCED ITSELF LAST NIGHT FROM THE STATEMENT, saying it wasn’t ‘cleared by Washington.’ That reflects the mixed signals they’re sending to the world.”
