US Security Officer in Libya: “The Taliban is Inside the Building”

Obama’s Benghazi lies have come apart. No protest. No blasphemy video motive. No Republican budget cuts.

Gibbs and Carney are still backpedaling and a portion of the public will still go on believing that the Benghazi attack was due to a Mo trailer, rather than a planned attack. And that is to the media’s credit for repeating the story and waiting weeks before challenging O’s people on their lies.

We know that the Benghazi consulate did not have proper security. We know that the leading American security people in Libya warned about that. We know there were multiple warnings that an attack was coming. We know that nobody seemed to care and they still don’t [2].

The former regional security officer in Libya, Eric Nordstrom, recalled talking to a regional director and asking for twelve security agents.

“His response to that was, ‘You are asking for the sun, moon and the stars.’ And my response to him – his name was Jim – ‘Jim, you know what makes most frustrating about this assignment? It is not the hardships, it is not the gunfire, it is not the threats. It is dealing and fighting against the people, programs and personnel who are supposed to be supporting me.

And I added (sic) it by saying, ‘For me the Taliban is on the inside of the building.’”

And the Taliban are still inside the building. The situation has not changed. The source of the obstruction is in the Obama White House. It’s in the State Department. It’s in the entire politically correct culture.

Wood said that when he heard of the attack on the Benghazi post on September 11, it was “instantly recognizable” that it had been a terrorist attack.


“Mainly because of my prior knowledge there,” Wood said. “I almost expected the attack to come. We were the last flag flying. It was a matter of time.”

This is a familiar story that we are going to hear over and over again. We’ll hear it in Benghazi and after every terrorist attack. Because attacks rarely come out of the blue. The people on the ground see them coming. It’s those with their heads in the clouds who are busy making peace in our time who refuse to see it and then lead the coverup afterward.
