What A Tangled Web We Weave. The Administration’s Benghazi Story Unravels.
As the Administration struggles to pin the foreseeable outcome of our bonkers Middle East policy, the sacking of two diplomatic missions and the slaughter of at least four diplomatic personnel, on a YouTube video, the truth begins to trickle out.
The first substantial fissure appears today.
An intelligence source backs up the claim of a wounded Libyan security guard that there was no demonstration prior to the sacking of the Benghazi consulate.
An intelligence source on the ground in Libya told Fox News that there was no demonstration outside the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi prior to last week’s attack — challenging the Obama administration’s claims that the assault grew out of a “spontaneous” protest against an anti-Islam film.
“There was no protest and the attacks were not spontaneous,” the source said, adding the attack “was planned and had nothing to do with the movie.”
The source said the assault came with no warning at about 9:35 p.m. local time, and included fire from more than two locations. The assault included RPG’s and mortar fire, the source said, and consisted of two waves.
The account that the attack started suddenly backs up claims by a purported Libyan security guard who told McClatchy Newspapers late last week that the area was quiet before the attack.
“There wasn’t a single ant outside,” the unnamed guard, who was being treated in a hospital, said in the interview.
This is a much more coherent view of the facts. A coordinated attack by al Qaeda on multiple US diplomatic missions, on 9/11, in the aftermath of the grotesque chest thumping by the hollow-chested “men” of the Obama Administration over the killing of bin Laden makes imminent sense. Multiple riots spontaneous appearing on 9.11 in response to an internet “film” is ludicrous on its face.
As the word of this works its way out the story will become even more damning. The only question is whether the administration can keep this under wraps until after election day.
