The US released a report before 9-11 warning of possible Islamist violence.
The protest in Cairo on 9-11 included a “Who’s who” of radical Islamic thugs – including the brother of Al-Qaeda number two Ayman al-Zawahiri (on left). The sons of the blind sheik, terrorist Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman (on right above) were also in attendance.
A report filed by the Department of Homeland Security warned that Islamists would burn down the US Embassy “with everyone in it” if the US did not release the blind sheikh.
FOX News reported:
Fox News has obtained a three-page intelligence report showing that two days before the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, a statement incited “sons of Egypt” to pressure America to release the so-called blind sheikh “even if it requires burning the embassy down with everyone in it.”
The web statement, apparently posted on Sept. 9, was in reference to the embassy in Egypt. It preceded a throng of demonstrators breaching the U.S. Embassy wall in Cairo, supposedly in protest over an anti-Islam film. Obama administration officials claim that attackers in Libya then took their cue from Cairo and seized the opportunity to attack the consulate in Benghazi.
Though the administration’s version of events is still evolving, the three-page Department of Homeland Security intelligence report further highlights potential threats that were being picked up before last week’s attack.
The DHS report, released on Sept. 11, said an “unidentified user” on an Arabic-language forum posted the statement “inciting Egyptians to target the U.S. Embassy, indicating the U.S. Embassy shouldn’t remain in Egypt” until Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as the blind sheikh, is released. Abdel-Rahman, who played a role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other attacks, is serving a life sentence in U.S. prison.
Also, Islamist webistes called to burn down the embassy several days before 9-11.

Maybe this explains why the Obama Administration scrubbed a State Department posting that said there were no threats on 9-11.
