Thankfully the US State Department choose to pick a credibility fight with CNN or else non of the truth would ever be getting attention. The latest developments in the ongoing lies and coverup.
Still Trying To Hide The Sun With Two Fingers
Despite the specific and intentional lying by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton the truth is beginning to slip out. One of the more recent discoveries is despite Hillary stating on 9/20 (last Thursday) that the FBI was on the ground, the truth is even today, 15 days later, no-one from the FBI has been able to reach the Benghazi US Consulate grounds. Let’s start by looking at a CNN interview last night:
So it is provably false that the FBI is in Benghazi. It is also provably false that the Libyan government is assisting the US government with any investigation. To the contrary the Libyan government is intentionally refusing to allow US investigators to reach the compound, and they are also stopping the FBI from questioning anyone they have detained or arrested in the murder of four Americans.
In addition it is now known with specificity that within 24 hours the State Department and the Obama administration had specific knowledge that the consulate attack was a direct act of terrorism.
(Via The Daily Beast) Within 24 hours of the 9-11 anniversary attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, U.S. intelligence agencies had strong indications al Qaeda–affiliated operatives were behind the attack, and had even pinpointed the location of one of those attackers. Three separate U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast said the early information was enough to show that the attack was planned and the work of al Qaeda affiliates operating in Eastern Libya.
Nonetheless, it took until late last week for the White House and the administration to formally acknowledge that the Benghazi assault was a terrorist attack. On Sunday, Obama adviser Robert Gibbs explained the evolving narrative as a function of new information coming in quickly on the attacks. “We learned more information every single day about what happened,” Gibbs said on Fox News. “Nobody wants to get to the bottom of this faster than we do.”
The intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast did so anonymously because they weren’t authorized to speak to the press. They said U.S. intelligence agencies developed leads on four of the participants of the attacks within 24 hours of the fire fight that took place mainly at an annex near the Benghazi consulate. For one of those individuals, the U.S. agencies were able to find his location after his use of social media. “We had two kinds of intelligence on one guy,” this official said. “We believe we had enough to target him.”
Another U.S. intelligence official said, “There was very good information on this in the first 24 hours. These guys have a return address. There are camps of people and a wide variety of things we could do.”
A spokesman for the National Security Council declined to comment for the story. But another U.S. intelligence official said, “I can’t get into specific numbers but soon after the attack we had a pretty good bead on some individuals involved in the attack.” (read more)
In addition the State Department is beginning to backtrack:
(Via TheNewYorkTimes) Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday suggested there was a link between the Qaeda franchise in North Africa and the attack at the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the American ambassador and three others. She was the highest-ranking Obama administration official to publicly make the connection, and her comments intensified what is becoming a fiercely partisan fight over whether the attack could have been prevented.
Mrs. Clinton did not offer any new evidence of a Qaeda link, and officials later said the question would be officially settled only after the F.B.I. completed a criminal inquiry, which could take months. But they said they had not ruled out the involvement of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb — an affiliate of the international terrorist group with origins in Algeria — in an attack the administration initially described as a spontaneous protest turned violent.
Her remarks added to the administration’s evolving and at times muddled explanation of what happened on the evening of Sept. 11 and into the next morning. Republicans in Congress have accused President Obama of playing down possible terrorist involvement in the midst of a re-election campaign in which killing Osama bin Laden and crippling Al Qaeda are cited as major achievements.

Of course, the legacy liberal media will totally disregard the fact that the Obama administration lied to the American public for fifteen days. Apparently it doesn’t fit their agenda.
The entire Libyan uprising which began in Benghazi was driven by radical Islamists. We have been sharing the visible al-Qaeda operatives for over a year and a half. The Muslim Brotherhood, the Egyptian military, Salafists, al-Qaeda et al were the entire construct of the initial uprising against Gaddafi. They hated him.
Feeling foolish yet Senator?
Yeah, that’s Benghazi in 2011, and Yeah, those are al-Qaeda flags in the hands of the “Rebels”
