U.S. intelligence officials knew within 24 hours of the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that it was a terrorist attack and suspected Al Qaeda-tied elements were involved, sources told Fox News — though it took the administration a week to acknowledge it.
The account conflicts with claims on the Sunday after the attack by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice that the administration believed the strike was a “spontaneous” event triggered by protests in Egypt over an anti-Islam film.
Two senior U.S. officials said the Obama administration internally labeled the attack terrorism from the first day in order to unlock and mobilize certain resources to respond, and that officials were looking for one specific suspect.
In addition, sources confirm that FBI agents have not yet arrived in Benghazi in the aftermath of the attack. Four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were killed in the assault.
The account that officials initially classified the attack as terrorism is sure to raise serious questions among lawmakers who have challenged the narrative the administration put out in the week following the strike. A few Republican lawmakers have gone so far as to suggest the administration withheld key facts about the assault for political reasons.
“I think we should have answers right away. … I think they’re reluctant to tell us what this event really was probably because it’s an election year. But the American people deserve to know answers about what happened at our embassy in Libya,” Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., told Fox News.” full story: here
This is disgusting but once again, not unexpected. Most of us knew is was a terrorist attack which had nothing to do with some absurd, unknown online video. But Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton and so many in this is regime, are filled with calculated lies and liars.
Obama supports Muslims; he’s said so on different occasions. He also knows it wouldn’t look good for America to experience yet another terrorist attack under his reign — his answer: lie about it.
A small, pathetic man who makes jokes about his being “eye-candy” and as he continues to pompously lie to the face of Americans. He’s not just incompetently he’s dangerous.
