White House knew Benghazi attack was terrorism within 121 minutes

At 4:05 pm on Tuesday, September 11, the Administration knew that the US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi was under attack. At 4:54 pm, the Administration knew that the “firing” at the mission had stopped and the compound was cleared. At 6:07, 121 minutes after news of the attack, the White House knew that the al Qaeda-related Ansar al Sharia had claimed responsibility. This information is in emails from the State Department Operations Center obtained by CBS News that included the White House situation room, the FBI, the office of the Director of National Intelligence. There is no question that the attacks were planned terrorism rather than resulting from a demonstration sparked by an anti-Islam movie.

As early as September 14, three days after the Benghazi attack, international news sites were identifying the al Qaeda-linked group as the culprits in the raid. For example, France 24 reported ansar al sharia is “A fundamentalist group with links to Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), Ansar al-Sharia was formed during the 2011 Libyan revolution and rose to prominence after the death of Muammar Gaddafi. Made up of former rebels, or freedom fighters, the Salafist militia initially made their name by posting videos of themselves fighting Gaddafi loyalists in the Battle of Sirte.” Yet with internal emails from its own State Department and international news reports, the president held to his story of movie-driven violence.

CBS reports that 14 hours after the attack, the president told 60 Minutes that his “suspicion is that there are folks involved in this who were looking to target Americans from the start.” Yet he and his administration held to the account that a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam film resulted in the violence at Benghazi. In his UN speech 14 days later, the president maintained “That is what we saw play out the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity.”

In the second presidential debate, he told his challenger: “And the suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the Secretary of State, our UN Ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, governor, is offensive. That’s not what we do. That’s not what I do as president, that’s not what I do as Commander in Chief.” Unfortunately, the documentation and timeline of statements show otherwise. The American people were misled. Did the president want to cover up the fact that the same terrorists he helped take over Libya turned on him, or did he want to use the attack to curb religious free speech, or did he mislead Americans for another reason? Yeshua says in Matthew 24:4, “Take heed that no man deceive you.”
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
