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.

    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.

  • Neo

    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.

  • 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.

    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.


  • EBL

    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.

  • Patty

    Obama is merely one tip of the real, global and Islamic conspiracy

    Regimes of control, power and death always start out the same. The dictators ride in on the savior horse. They are Father Christmas and the deliverer, providing food, health care, provisions and pleasures that all others cannot deliver.

    Obama Control
    (Dr. Laurie Roth, PhD. ) – We are seeing the classic battle for control and power by the Obama regime and international forces behind him. It is the same evil force that inspired the legendary, Roman Empire that emerged as a super power, thousands of years ago. We all remember Ben Hur and the famous Gladiators. They almost seem now days like a fable or movie script in history. Instead, the Romans were wealthy, dominating and vicious. They were known for attacking and destroying any independent voices who rose up. Thousands of Christians were tortured, burned, hung on crosses and fed to the Lions. Belief in Jesus meant that the Romans as the ultimate power source were threatened.

    Regimes of control, power and death always start out the same. The dictators ride in on the ‘savior’ horse. They are Father Christmas and the deliverer, providing food, health care, provisions and pleasures that all others cannot deliver.

    Dictators rarely establish control through war, although some do. Most, however promise, lie and seduce the masses to believe in them and follow them. Dictators hand out enough dog bones to the people and present enough confusion and diversion, that they are caught. Once the needy people have taken the hook, the other shoe starts to drop. The diversions, entertainment and dog bones continue to flow as all wealth, freedom, food and property are stolen and redistributed. Meanwhile, the ‘Stepford Wives’ and ‘Surf Clones’ feel most patriotic, loyal and called to serve their country and Dictator. They don’t know for a long time that they are being gang raped.


    From the endless assaults by Obama against our energy, food and Health care businesses and infrastructure, we can see the ‘winds’ of Obama involve the total destruction of America. Like Dictators of old and the current Islamic Dictatorships through out the Muslim world we have a President competing for position. His intention is to continue his Father’s redistribution of wealth scheme, punish America for her Judeo Christian values and achievements, and make us his surfs, serving global Governance and Islam.

    Does anyone ever remember hearing such a vigorous promotion of a movie?

    A movie that I read the showing was cancelled because no one showed up? Only evidence I have seen that it exists was that clip. Obama, Hillary, General, Rice, Media (including Bagdad Carney) and paid ADS to promote it.

    Wow. That is some promotion when the President of the USA and Secretary of State meet 4 dead bodies and talk about a movie that only protesters have heard about and not seen.

    President of the USA goes on the View and to the UN (same) to give a biggie speech and STILL talking about a movie trailor?

    Hey Clint…………..maybe you can hire him because that is some PR.

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

    With this administration, nothing is shocking.

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

    Like I said, nothing is shocking. For Obie’s entire apparatus, it’s all politics, all the time, anywhere in the world.

  • owl

    So how did all those protesters in that many countries know about the invisible movie and plan their foot stomping, flag burning, violent protests, all on the same day?

    Oh, and they thought Libya would have the protesters also, so they proclaimed it was the protesters.

    Uh oh…………….those particular planned protesters didn’t show up.

  • Patty

    He is speaking to us, even after his death.

    The State Department is furious at CNN for reporting details from the private journal of Christopher Stevens, the American ambassador to Libya who was killed in the Sept. 11 assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Philippe Reines, senior adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said CNN used the information against the wishes of Stevens’ family, and called the network’s conduct “disgusting.” A CNN rep said the cable news channel initially kept quiet about the journal’s existence “out of respect for the family,” but broadcast some of Stevens’ jottings because they were important to the story. Was this an invasion of privacy, or just solid reporting? Here’s what you should know:

    How did CNN wind up with Stevens’ journal?
    CNN says a producer found it on the floor of the “largely unsecured” consulate three days after Stevens and three other Americans were killed in an attack by suspected Islamist militants. CNN says it notified Stevens’ family “within hours.” The family contacted the State Department, which arranged a conference call in which Stevens’ relatives asked CNN to return the journal and not broadcast its contents. The State Department says CNN agreed to hold off on broadcasting anything Stevens wrote until it could return the volume to the family and let them review its contents. Nevertheless, days later, some of the information began popping up in CNN reports.

    How did CNN wind up with Stevens’ journal?

    What information did the network get from the journal?

    Is CNN’s behavior really “disgusting”?

    Most are on the campaign trail. Sound to me they couldn’t give a damn. Won’t be back until after elections. This is no bump in the road. This was a turning point for me. Proof positive Obama is a complete incompetent.

    And his supporters call him Eye Candy. Dear God, what is America thinking. He is polling wonderfully in Major states. So, for me, I won’t give up my vote and pray Americans will get there heads on straight. It is just killing me that Fl. Oh, and Pa show this maniac ahead and some by double digits. But remember Kerry and Bush, it looked quite the same. And Bush won in a landslide.

    Since entering the White House Obama has worked to weaken our military through his rules of engagement that cost hundreds of young American,s their lives, through his lack of leadership as the head of the military in sending suficient numbers of troops to Afganastan even after being advised by his field commanders that the numbers requested were necessary, and by cuts in the military budgets which left our troops poorly equiped. His anti semetic and anti Isreali policies have further hurt us in the Middle East and allowed the terrorists to gain a stronger foothold in that region. Add to this his devasting economic policies at home that have weakened us in the world arena and his total disregard for the constitution and you have the ideal weapon for terrorist groups to destroy us from within. Wake up America before it’s too late. Our system of Government may not be perfect but it’s offered a safe haven to millions since it’s conception.
