Internal Emails: State Dept. Immediately Attributed Benghazi Attacks to Terrorist Group | The Counter Jihad Report

By Sharyl Attkisson, May 1, 2014

A newly-released government email indicates that within hours of the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya; the State Department had already concluded with certainty that the Islamic militia terrorist group Ansar al Sharia was to blame.

The private, internal communication directly contradicts the message that President Obama,

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice and White House

press secretary Jay Carney repeated publicly over the course of the next several weeks.

They often maintained that an anti-Islamic YouTube video inspired a spontaneous

demonstration that escalated into violence.

The email is entitled “Libya update from Beth Jones. ” Jones was then-Assistant Secretary

of State to Hillary Clinton. According to the email, Jones spoke to Libya’s Ambassador at

9:45am on Sept. 12, 2012 following the attacks.
