Skip to comments.No demonstration before attack on US Consulate, source says
Posted on 09/17/2012 10:16:22 AM PDT by GeorgeWashingtonsGhost
An intelligence source on the ground in Libya told Fox News that there was no demonstration outside the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi prior to last week's attack -- challenging the Obama administration's claims that the assault grew out of a "spontaneous" protest against an anti-Islam film.
The intelligence source said no protests were happening before the attackers struck at about 9:35 p.m. local time last Tuesday. The account backs up claims by a purported Libyan security guard who told McClatchy Newspapers late last week that the area was quiet before the attack.
"There wasn't a single ant outside," the unnamed guard, who was being treated in a hospital, said in the interview.
These details appear to conflict with accounts from the Obama administration that the attack spawned from an out-of-control protest. The Libyan president also said Sunday that the strike was planned in advance

Doesn’t fit the narrative. They have mobilized the entire government on a false premise.
For goodness sake, the bloody film was on the internet MONTHS ago.
F-Troop in The White House.
Mr. Obama, these meatheads hate your (our) guts. Being nice to them isn’t going to help.
What? The Obama Administration was deliberately lying to the American people about the cause of the attack, purely for political purposes? Nah. . .not possible. /s
Does anyone remember the Spanish elections of 2004? There was a terrorist attack on trains that killed almost 200. The then current administration was poised to win the upcoming election, but in fear of voter reprisals if they disclosed the true cause of the attacks—Muslim terrorists upset about Spain’s involvement in the Iraq war—they lied and told the public the Basque Separatists were responsible instead.
When it was discovered that the administration had deceived the public, the backlash at the box office was swift and the Socialists were voted in.
So, would the American public respond the same way if they realized that the Obama regime was lying to them? Maybe, if the lapdog press ever let them find out.
This is fascinating- Catherine Herridge and James Rosen have really, REALLY good sources.
It's my opinion that THEIR narrative was that it was spontaneous, i.e. NOT premeditated.
0 is finished now.
the american people have seen with their own eyes
how 0 appeased the muslims, and this is the result
of his incompetency.
romney must beat 0 at the debates,
otherwise 0 would just keep trying to pull
wool over the people’s eyes.
Oh you mean that ants don't decide to take a promenade at 10 o'clock at night? As well, protesters don't show up carrying RPG launchers, instead of signs at 10 o'clock either.
Thanks. I really botched this one. I meant ‘not premeditated’. Sorry about that!
The boy fool in the WH has been exposed. Schadenfreude.
Why is the FBI investig actions which occurred in Libya? Isn’t FBI domestic? Could it be because Holder is in charge of the FBI??
They’re grilling Sick Harpootlian now. I wonder how the gasbag will spin this exposed coverup by the fraud in the White House.
Wishful thinking, the american people are more concerned with Honey Boo Boo.
These facts are why they will just stop answering questions about this.
The whole WH & State narrative is a pack of lies covering for something.
You mean it wasn’t spontaneous oh good heavens..the media has been telling me this for almost a week now..oh goodness gracious you mean these scum bags who chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” wasn’t doing this because of some silly film..OH NO/sarc
The reason why they want to blame the film SO badly is because they want to deflect attention to the fact that this was a TERRORIST ATTACK ON 9/11..calling it what it was, a terrorist attack would make dear leader look really really bad and we all know the media won’t allow that to happen
Demonstration run amok or planned attack?
Ambassador Chris Stevens was in a secure room or in a different building in the compound or in a safe house or in a vehicle preparing to leave or in a vehicle on the way to the safe house.
Ambassador Chris Stevens died from smoke inhalation at the scene or in the hospital, or after being beaten and sodomized and asphyxiated.
Ambassador Chris Stevens or his body was found alive and driven to the hospital in a car or was dragged through the streets or carried through the streets to the hospital or we don't know where he was for 12 hours.
I guess we are sure about ONE thing, he was GAY! I am SOOOOOO glad to know that. I mean who cares about trivial things like who killed him? Was it a planned attack? How did he actually die?
Not to mention the minutely reported “rescue mission” in the desert, where 2 soldiers were killed and more than a dozen Americans were wounded.

Surprised Drudge doesn’t have this up under a siren.
