SHOCK REPORT!… Within 24 Hours Obama Administration Knew Benghazi Attacks Were Work of Al-Qaeda (Video)

Within hours of the 9-11 Benghazi Consulate attacks the Obama Administration knew that it was the work of Al-Qaeda. For days the administration told reporters that the consulate attack was the related to an offensive YouTube.   Yet at the same time the administration was privately circulating a document with a very different opinion on the murderous attack.
Catherine Herridge from FOX News reported:

There was this private narrative you see in the intelligence community where they separate what happened in Libya from this YouTube clip and then you have this public narrative that you have from this administration. And I got a hold of this Homeland Security Assessment. It talks about the scope of the demonstrations in the first week after 9-11 and what’s interesting to me is that this intelligence document makes no mention of the YouTube clip. So again, that’s sort of the private narrative but the public narrative from this administration has been that the clip has really prompted the assault not only in Libya but elsewhere in the Middle East.”

Now there is information that the Obama Administration knew within hours that the consulate attacks were the work of Al-Qaeda. Yet they pushed the narrative for a week that it was a spontaneous protest in reaction to a YouTube video.
The Daily Beast reported:

Within 24 hours of the 9-11 anniversary attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, U.S. intelligence agencies had strong indications al Qaeda–affiliated operatives were behind the attack, and had even pinpointed the location of one of those attackers. Three separate U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast said the early information was enough to show that the attack was planned and the work of al Qaeda affiliates operating in Eastern Libya.

Nonetheless, it took until late last week for the White House and the administration to formally acknowledge that the Benghazi assault was a terrorist attack. On Sunday, Obama adviser Robert Gibbs explained the evolving narrative as a function of new information coming in quickly on the attacks. “We learned more information every single day about what happened,” Gibbs said on Fox News. “Nobody wants to get to the bottom of this faster than we do.”

The intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast did so anonymously because they weren’t authorized to speak to the press. They said U.S. intelligence agencies developed leads on four of the participants of the attacks within 24 hours of the fire fight that took place mainly at an annex near the Benghazi consulate. For one of those individuals, the U.S. agencies were able to find his location after his use of social media. “We had two kinds of intelligence on one guy,” this official said. “We believe we had enough to target him.”

Another U.S. intelligence official said, “There was very good information on this in the first 24 hours. These guys have a return address. There are camps of people and a wide variety of things we could do.”

A spokesman for the National Security Council declined to comment for the story. But another U.S. intelligence official said, “I can’t get into specific numbers but soon after the attack we had a pretty good bead on some individuals involved in the attack.”

The Obama Administration decided to play politics after the worst terror attack on US soil in years.

    I’m just plain repulsed by this poc that resides in the white house. It’s like having a nest of cobras in your house.

    To Obama, the problem is ‘abuse’ of the first ammendment.

    This narative follows up nicely with his plans for ‘fundamental change’.

    Why would he ever waiver from his plan regardless of the truth? Look for Obama to continue this lie in the upcomming debates.

    Team Obama knew that Romney made a big deal out of the Cairo embassy messages about the pathetic YouTube video, so they don’t want to separate the Cairo screwup from the Benghazi screwup by saying that it has no connection to that protest that the media told us “Romney was dead wrong about,” even though he wasn’t.
    Or simply, a few dead bodies aren’t to get in the way of Obama’s re-election.

    your surprised that hillary and barack would lie? hillary and barack are marxists, they don’t believe in the concept of truth. there is no value in telling the truth unless that is going to get them their way. in this case it wasn’t. this is the kind of government you get when you elect marxists.

  • Patty

    And what will be done to Obama, well, he is leading by double digits in Obama, by skewed polls. Or if they aren’t are you and ready for what Obama will do in the next four years.

    Voters aren’t paying attention and I fear that we our fighting a much bigger problem. The MEDIA. They just don’t report this stuff.

    Better start depending on God Almighty and not on government. If this Muslim gets reelected it is going to get rough in this country. Even for the stupid people that do not see the forest for the trees. They will be like little kids when the candy runs out, or addicts without drugs.

    OT, but I think related:

    This bothered me when I first heard about it, and these facts confirm what I’d thought. So long as this traitor and his crowd are in power, we can expect this kind of thing:

    Those facts were all carried in most reports, but if that just sounds like a typical damage report from a decade-long war, you’re wrong. Gresham explains the devastating damage done to VMA-211, the name of the Marine Corps attack squadron that was most affected last week, noting that it is “arguably the worst day in [U.S. Marine Corps] aviation history since the Tet Offensive of 1968.” Or you could go back even further. “The last time VMA-211 was combat ineffective was in December 1941, when the squadron was wiped out during the 13-day defense of Wake Island against the Japanese.”

    He spells out some more of the details of the attack:

    Eight irreplaceable aircraft (the AV-8B has been out of production since 1999) have been destroyed or put out of action – approximately 7 percent of the total flying USMC Harrier fleet. Worse yet, the aircraft involved were the AV-B+ variant equipped with the APG-65 radar and AAQ-28 Litening II targeting pods – the most capable in the force. Given the current funding situation, it’s likely that the two damaged AV-8Bs will become spare parts “hangar queens” and never fly again. A Harrier squadron commander is dead, along with another Marine. Another nine personnel have been wounded, and the nearby Marines at Camp Freedom are now without effective fixed-wing air support. The USMC’s response to this disaster will be a telling report card on its leadership and organizational agility.

    FEDS COMPLICIT. Film made by TERRORISTS. From #6 ponderon’s link:

    Now to prove beyond a shadow of doubt that the feds were complicit: the Justice Department lawyers and federal agents, despite Nakoula’s two previous offenses, defended Nakoula and gave several excuses to Judge Snyder and pushed for leniency, all because he supposedly promised to help them catch Eiad:

    [H]e [Nakoula] has implicated Mr. Salamay [aka Salameh] there is no question that Mr. Salamay at some point is gonna be indicted if he hasn’t already been… we all know what’s gonna happen. Salamay is gonna get arrested some day and based on the debriefing information turned over he is gonna enter a guilty plea, or if he doesn’t, then Mr. Nakoula is going to be called in to testify…” [see sentencing transcript].

    If the feds were indeed looking to catch Eiad, he had in fact been doing his shenanigans for three decades, warrants were issued, his location was known and no arrests were ever made, in thirty some years.

    The evidence compounds. Eiad was not, however, immune in Canada and was finally caught and locked up there in January 2011. We have emails from the Intelligence Bureau in Canada (IBC) who wrote us. The Canadians wanted to keep Eiad in custody as long as it took to extradite him to the United States, yet the U.S. refused for seven months to take him and preferred to fly him to Palestine.

    On July 15th, 2011, the Canadians wrote me: “He is awaiting deportation to Palestine, unless the US hurry up and indict him…” The feds never responded to the Canadian’s last appeal and within a few days, Eiad was sent to Palestine.

    I realize that people might try to shoot holes in what we are saying, yet, the media has very little evidence to prove its narrative, while we present many validated facts.

    Bombshell Obama Vetting: 1979 Newspaper Article By Valerie Jarrett Father-In-Law Reveals Start Of Arab Purchase Of U.S. Presidency

    Why would Muslim oil billionaires finance and develop controlling relationships with black college students? Well, like anyone else, they would do it for self-interest. And what would their self-interest be? We all know the top two answers to that question: 1. a Palestinian state and 2. the advancement of Islam in America. The idea then was to advance blacks who would facilitate these two goals to positions of power in the Federal government, preferably, of course, the Presidency. And why would the Arabs target blacks in particular for this job? Well, for the same reason the early communists chose them as their vanguard for revolution (which literally means “change”) in America. Allow me to quote Trotsky, in 1939: “The American Negroes, for centuries the most oppressed section of American society and the most discriminated against, are potentially the most revolutionary element of the population. They are designated by their historical past to be, under adequate leadership, the very vanguard of the proletarian revolution.” Substitute the word “Islam” for the words “the proletarian revolution,” and you most clearly get the picture, as Islam is a revolutionary movement just like communism is.

    We now know absolutely the Obama Administration lied. But the question the press is not asking is why did the Obama Administration lie about the Benghazi attack?

  • Patty

    What this administration knew or didn’t know. The cover up will come out in the wash. But with Media so bias we may never get to the answers until those in Congress ask and start investigations. You realize how long this will take. Nothing will come out before the elections and if Obama is re-elected it probably will be blamed on some little man sitting in a corner some where taking the fall.

    The DOJ was cleared and rest assured Holder isn’t going to have blood on his hands. He skated out of Fast and Furious. So, again, this won’t get much play by the bias media.

    Obama’s foreign policies are killing Americans. Obama is to blame for what happened on 911/12 He is the reason for the deaths of our Seals and Stevens. He should be impeached because of this, he seems to be getting pass after pass. And to think, he could be re-elected. This administration has covered up things but what has been worse in the Cover up of Obama’s past and those who got him where he is in the first place.

    If a republican president had done what Obama did there would be calls for his or her impeachment. WHY THERE ISN’T MORE OUTRAGE? I just don’t know, Media or a changing nation and world. This goes further then my pay grade.
