Nearly two years after the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi and now we find out the Obama administration heard terrorists using US State Department phones the night of the attack.
Obama officials knew the terrorists were using State Department phones the night of the Benghazi attacks.
Multiple sources have confirmed to Bret Baier and Fox News that U.S. spy agencies were able to hear terrorists making phone calls to their superior commanding officers during the attack on the consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. The communications were easily intercepted because the attackers were using State Department cell phones seized during the attacks. The new information adds to an already extensive body of evidence which points to the administration knowing that the attack was a coordinated effort by a terrorist organization, and not the result of an obscure YouTube video.
Eric Stahl, a retired major in the U.S. Air Force, told Baier (see video below) that members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff were confused by repeated references to a video as the driving force behind the attacks, because the administration “knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.”
“Right after they left the consulate in Benghazi and went to the [CIA] safehouse, they were getting reports that cell phones, consulate cell phones, were being used to make calls to the attackers’ higher ups.”
A second source confirmed these reports and stated that security teams on the ground were receiving intelligence about the terrorist phone calls in real time.
