Skip to comments.Senate report: Benghazi attackers tied to Al Qaeda groups
Posted on 01/15/2014 4:52:17 PM PST by Kaslin
A comprehensive report by the Senate Intelligence Committee definitively declared that individuals tied to Al Qaeda groups were involved in the Benghazi attack, challenging recent claims that the terror network was not a factor.
The report was released Monday, nearly one year after then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, under congressional questioning over the nature of the attack, shouted at lawmakers: What difference, at this point, does it make?
The administration initially claimed the attack sprung out of a protest, but has since given a more complicated assessment. Still, administration officials all along have downplayed Al Qaeda involvement, recently seizing on a New York Times report that supported those claims.

If the GOP had the brains of a typical candidate for student council at a suburban high school, they would make that sentence into Hillary Clinton's campaign slogan.
But they don't. So what's the use talking about it.
Ya think !??!
Whatever happened to the video excuse?
Yesterday there were reports that the Obama Administration found out that Al-Qaeda was behind the Benghazi consulate attacks within 24 hours of the assault that killed four Americans.
So what was their first action? Did they secure the compound? No, that took over a week to get FBI agents to the consulate Did they acknowledge it was an Al-Qaeda attack? No, Obama this week blamed the terror attack on a YouTube protest.
Heres what they did They scrubbed a damning State Department memo from the internet On Wednesday September 12, 2012 blogger Speak With Authority discovered that five days before 9-11, the US State Department sent out a memo announcing no credible security threats against the United States on the anniversary of 9-11.

WASHINGTON - In the months leading up to his death, Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, worried about constant security threats in Benghazi and mentioned that his name was on an al Qaeda hit list, a source familiar with his thinking told CNN.
Stevens spoke about a rise in Islamic extremism and al Qaeda's growing presence in Libya, the source said.
...and there are people wanting her to be president of this [once proud] nation.
Hillary Rodham makes Jane Fonda look like an innocent school girl.
What was their first clue?
Our troops are among the finest we've ever produced, but unlike their WWII counterparts were betrayed by the home front that was more concerned about getting their freebies than finishing off some group who attacked us 13 years ago while Bush was President.
I hate to say it, but this generation couldn't have won WWII.
BTW...I thought the NYT story was intended to be the first in a series of six about Benghazi. Haven't seen hide nor hair of any more of them since the first one got blasted by the slain families, the CIA who were on the ground in Libya, and conservative media.
Like EVERYTHING coming from this mac daddy administration IT’S A LIE.
The infamous video excuse was one of the most obvious, hideous and blatant lies in the history of mankind yet not a word is spoken. What happened?
That arrogant pos occupant of the Spite House is a criminal and should be dragged out and thrown into prison
Indeed! Here on FR we knew all of these “revelations” from the Sen. Intelligence Committee Report within three weeks of the attack. And we knew 0bama was a criminal long before that.
We sure did.
>> Whatever happened to the video excuse?
It is outrageous what happened to the US citizens at Benghazi. The way the Marxists treated the 1st Amendment is far worse.
The thought that this evil witch Hillary Clinton is still the front runner for the nomination as president of the democrat party—after the worst performance by any secretary of state in the history of the USA, and after her overall history (senator, first lady, Nixon impeachment lawyer, etc etc etc)—is just unworldly and beyond precedent.
Have I mentioned here how much I hate the GD Clintons?
Even the video excuse is lame. A private citizen with no connection to government makes a little film about Mohammed and the United States of America is somehow complicit? It’s ridiculous in so many ways. If I make a similar film tomorrow can we expect an attack on our embassy in Egypt? Absurd.
Al Qaeda’s on the run, on the rise, what’s the difference?
When the State Dept and the White House and Susan Rice and others claimed that the slaughter and myahem were not planned and that the anniversary of 9/11 had nothing to do with the terrorist violence against Embassy Staff in Benghazi, only someone younger than five years old or someone unable to think for himself might have believed she was not telling a fictional tale and actually herself knew the truth. They all sounded lie big fat lies right at the time.
I think they can’t tell us what Obamanation was doing after the attack started so they made up a (ridiculous) lie.
