“1 - Who invented the lie about protests of the video?”
Exactly!! The whole meme about “oh, they’re protesting the video” is so far out in Whackville that you can’t even see it from here. NO protesters were running around yelling about the video. So where on earth did that idea even come from? It must have come from our side. FIND the originator of that bogus idea, that the Benghazi attackers were protesting that stupid vid, and you’ll unravel a whole lot of this story right there.
I’m thinking there must have been some confusion between Cairo and Benghazi. As far as I know, the idea that there were protests against the video ginned up by Egyptian media and clerics hasn’t been refuted.
The first link is from the day of 9/11, before anything in Benghazi had even gotten started from what I can tell.
