Graham: Obama Knew of Benghazi Threat, Acted ‘After Everybody Was Dead’

President Barack Obama was aware of two IED attacks on the Benghazi consulate in Libya in the months leading up the the Sept. 11 attack that killed U. S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham claims.

The South Carolina Republican said James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, told him the president was informed of attacks in April and June, Fox News reports.

The June attack blew a hole in the perimeter wall of the Benghazi compound, and the two strikes were reportedly part of dozens of incidents in the region that are considered warning signs of the deadly attacks in September.

Graham criticized Obama for a White House statement saying the president did not talk to Libya’s leader until the evening of Sept. 12, a day after the embassy was attacked.

“(He talked) after everybody was dead,” said Graham, suggesting Obama could have made a difference if he’d been involved earlier, but “you got a commander in chief who is absolutely disengaged. You got the secretary of State never talking to the secretary of Defense.”

Graham’s disclosure came after several Capitol Hill hearings in which several top administration officials, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed they were not aware of the security problems at the Libyan compound.

Clinton said she never saw an Aug. 16 State Department cable warning that the consulate could not sustain a coordinated attack, but outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said they knew about the warning.

A DNI spokesman said the Obama administration has been cooperative with Congress over the Libya questions. However, White House counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan, during his confirmation hearings for CIA director, said much of the information about what Obama knew falls under the category of “executive privilege,” a status often used to avoid disclosing information.

    He’s not disengaged. In obama’s mind, friends of the USA are his enemies, and enemies of the USA are his friends. Why would he want to stop an attack against his ENEMY?

    When Mrs. Clinton said she didn’t see the cable that there were so many cables she couldn’t read them all, I’d ask what cables did you read? How do you prioritize cables to be read? If one containing life threatening concern from and American Ambassador isn’t good enough just what is ? Especially since the Brits left the area due to deteriorating security before it all fell apart. I guess they have someone who does read cables.

    How do you prioritize cables to be read?

    I wonder if any of the politicians asked her that question.

    @Mully: It is the plausible deny-ability defense I have had several bosses over the last ten+ years – (age of e-mails) – that have used it:

    “What email? I get hundreds a day!”

    And all we got up against it is Goober and McLame

    I’m sure you meant it jokingly, but you got me thinking that that is exactly what he could have been doing. It wouldn’t me.

    hi,
    I like SENATOR GRAHAM, HE IS A SMART ONE AND ASK
    THE RIGHT QUESTIONS, WHEN HE HAVE THOSE IN FRONT OF HIM,
    THOSE HE DOESN’T TRUST ENOUGH TO GET THE BIG TOP JOBS,
    AND OBAMA YES HIM AGAIN, DOESN’T LOOK FOR ABILITY,
    HE LOOK FOR THE SECOND RATE AS LONG AS THEY HAVE SOLD TO HIM
    AND DEDICATED THEIR LIFE TO HIM, NEITHER ONE HAS STRUCK THE COMITY AS TO BE THE BRILLIANCE THE JOB REQUIRE,, ONE HAS SOLD HIS BROTHERS IN ARMS IN VIETNAM
    MAKING THEM MONSTER TO THE EYES OF THE PEOPLE ‘S LISTENING TO HIM,
    THIS IN ITSELF WAS AN ATROCITY TOWARD THE SOLDIERS IN VIETNAM FIGHTING IN THAT HELL,
    IT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN, AND HE SHOULD NOT HAVE EVER GOVERNMENT JOB,
    HIS NAME IS TREASON TO HIS FELLOW AMERICAN,
    THE OTHER ONE BRENNAN LOOK LIKE HE KNOW HIS JOB, BUT HE FAIL THE BENGHASI MASSACRE, HE AND OBAMA LIKE TO PLAY WITH DRONES, THEY MISS THE CHANCE TO SEND AN PREDATOR THERE TO SAVE THE MAN EXPECTING AMERICA TO NOT ABANDON THEM, THEY SCREW UP THERE BIG TIME, WHERE IT WAS MOST NEEDED
    WHAT EVER HE WAS IN AT THE TIME, HELL IF WE WOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE AMBASSADOR NOT GETTING HIS MESSAGES WHERE IT WAS AIM AT AND ASKING FOR HELP,
    WE WOULD HAVE MADE SURE OF IT THAT THEY GET IT EVEN AT THE POINT OF A GUN,
    AND ON THE FIRST ONE IN APRIL.
    AND THE THIRD ONE HAGEL, IS NOT MEETING THE SCRUTINY OF THE SENATOR,
    HE IS DANGEROUS ENOUGH , HE SIDE WITH OBAMA ON THE MUSLIMS HATERS,
    AND DON’T GIVE A FLYING FOX FOR ISRAEL THE ONLY SMART PEOPLE IN THERE
    WHO ARE LIKE THE CONSERVATIVES HERE, MEANING VERY TOLERANT AND DEPENDEBLE AND SMARTER TO PERCIEVE THE ENEMIES MOVES IN ADVANCE. THEY ARE THE FRIENDS WE NEED ,

    Since I don’t belong to any party, I can’t vote for who runs in a party, so I don’t pay much attention to the POSSIBLE candidates until there are ACTUAL candidates.

    Isn’t it appropriate for a President to execute his Executive Privilege when he admits he did not know anything? After all, how you expect him or any of the cover up conspirators to admit any neglect of duty to anyone that disagrees with their obvious stupidity. America gives you credit for actually knowing what was happening in Benghazi on the 09/11/12 terrorist attacks by Al-Qaeda unless you are admitting your stupidity and need to be removed from any US Office.
