Ambassador Susan Rice: Libya Attack Not PremeditatedBy
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi was not premeditated, directly contradicting top Libyan officials who say the attack was planned in advance.

“Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” Rice told me this morning on “This Week.”

“In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated,” Rice said, referring to protests in Egypt Tuesday over a film that depicts the Prophet Muhammad as a fraud. Protesters in Cairo breached the walls of the U.S. American Embassy, tearing apart an American flag.

“We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to – or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo,” Rice said. “And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons… And it then evolved from there.”

Ambassador Christopher Stevens, along with three other Americans, were killed in Libya following the assault on the American consulate in Benghazi, on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Rice said the FBI is examining the attack, saying their investigation “will tell us with certainty what transpired.”

Rice’s account directly contradicts that of Libyan President Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf, who said this weekend that he had “no doubt” the attack was pre-planned by individuals from outside Libya.

“It was planned, definitely, it was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago, and they were planning this criminal act since their arrival,” told CBS News.

Rice said there were no Marines present to protect the consulate in Libya, or the main U.S. embassy in Tripoli, saying the U.S. presence there is “relatively new” since the revolution that overthrew former dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

“There are not Marines in every facility. That depends on the circumstances. That depends on the requirements,” Rice said. “Our presence in Tripoli, as in Benghazi, is relatively new, as you will recall. We’ve been back post-revolution only for a matter of months.”

But Rice said there was a “substantial security presence” at the consulate in Benghazi, noting that two of the four Americans killed there were providing security.

“We certainly are aware that Libya is a place where there have been increasingly some violent incidents,” Rice said. “The security personnel that the State Department thought were required were in place… It obviously didn’t prove sufficient to the – the nature of the attack and sufficient in that – in that moment.”

“But the president has been very clear. The protection of American personnel and facilities is and will remain our top priority,” Rice added. “That’s why we’ve reinforced our presence in Tripoli and elsewhere.”

Libya President Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf said Sunday that 50 arrests have been made in connection with last week's "preplanned" attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead.

"The way these perpetrators acted and moved -- I think we, and they're choosing the specific date for this so-called demonstration, I think we have no, this leaves us with no doubt that this was pre-planned, determined," Magariaf said on CBS's "Face the Nation."

"And you believe that this was the work of Al Qaeda, and you believe that it was led by foreigners. Is that what you’re telling us?" CBS host Bob Schieffer asked.

"It was planned, definitely. It was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago. And they were planning this criminal act since their arrival," Magariaf said.

    923 Executive Orders in 40 Months
    During my lifetime, All Presidents have issued Executive Orders, for reasons that vary, some more than others. When a President issued as many as 30 Ex. Orders during a term in Office, people thought there was something Amiss.
    WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT 923 EX. ORDERS IN ONE PART OF ONE TERM
    ?????? YES, THERE IS A REASON.
    IT IS THAT THE PRESIDENT IS DETERMINED TO TAKE CONTROL AWAY FROM THE HOUSE AND
    THE SENATE.
    Even some Democrats in the House have turned on him, plus a very small number of
    Democrat Senators question him.
    HE SHOULD BE QUESTIONED. WHAT IS HE REALLY TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH ????
    DOES THIS SCARE YOU AS MUCH AS IT DOES Me?
    Not really surprising that he appointed "Czars" to be in charge of everything.
    Emperor Obama ?
    Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.
    ....THIS IS NOT FUNNY, AND IF YOU VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN, YOU CAN EXPECT MORE!
    Remember what he told Russia's Putin: "I'll be more flexible after I'm re-elected".
    THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION: Obama has signed 923 Executive Orders in 40 months!
    What did Congress do in those 40 months? (The House - considerable. The Senate
    -nothing, not even a budget nor allowing any House bill to be considered.) A
    whole new order must prevail in Wash. DC as a result of this next election! Now

    look at these:
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of
    transportation and control of highways and seaports.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the
    communication media.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power,
    gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and
    farms.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work
    brigades under government supervision.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education
    and welfare functions.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the of all persons. Postmaster General to
    operate a national registration
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to
    take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate
    communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be
    abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland
    waterways and public storage facilities.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal
    departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued
    over a fifteen year period.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency
    Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in
    times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce
    the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to
    establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate
    penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
    -EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to
    develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and
    distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money
    in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also
    provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress
    cannot review the action for six months.
    Feel free to verify the "executive orders" at will... and these are just the
    major ones I'm sure you've all heard the tale of the "Frog in the Pot"... you
    all comfortable???
    Watch Obama's actions, not his words! By his actions he will show you where
    America is headed.
    . Just this week, Obama has issued a new executive order that seeks to
    "harmonize" U.S. economic regulations with the rest of the world. This new
    executive order is yet another incremental step that is pushing us closer to a
    North American Union and a one world economic system.

I'm going down to the embassy to protest that film ... what do I need ... hmmmm ... my machine gun ... my grenade launcher and a few rocket propelled grenades ... a bunch of tires ... several cans of gasoline ... that ought to do it. I'll call fubar, akbar and souqmaadik and invite them. We can stop at the mosque on the way down and round up a few thousand friends to join us. Yep ... that's how it happened. Purely spontaneous.

    They have different AGENDAS, so they put different 'spins' on the information. The Obama Administration doesn't want to anger other coutries (doesn't seem to be working), and the Lybians want it to be OUTSIDE ADJITATORS and NOT the Lybian People (seems resonable).

    I was about to put there is no truth in Obama option, then it occurred to me- he DOES tell the truth frequently.

    He is truthful when he says he wants to redistribute the wealth as they do in Marxism.

    He is truthful in saying he thinks the money you earn belongs to the government

    he is honest when he says he want to make your electricity and gas so expensiv you can not afford them.

    He is honest about thinking he should bow to Muslim kings

    And most telling, he is honest when he blames America, and says he thinks it is all our fault

    I believe the Libyan President, mainly because this administration lies 98% of the time. I think this was planned for 9/11 for months and this administration was most likely involved in the planning. They also planned and planted the video cover story on their local TV to provoke riots and provide a smoke screen.
