Intelligence sources conflict with Obama position that Libya attacks were spontaneous and unplanned


A great report by Fox News citing new intelligence sources that directly contradict the Obama administration’s version of how the Libyan attacks occurred that killed our ambassador and his staff members. The Obama admin. contends that the attacks were part of a spontaneous uprising from a protest over this anti-Islamic video. But reports from the ground are now suggesting there were no protests at all before the attacks happened.



The pertinent part of the video ends at 4:46:

Here’s a portion of the write up from Fox News:

FOX NEWS – 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.

“There was no protest and the attacks were not spontaneous,” the source said, adding the attack “was planned and had nothing to do with the movie.”

The source said the assault came with no warning at about 9:35 p.m. local time, and included fire from more than two locations. The assault included RPG’s and mortar fire, the source said, and consisted of two waves.

The account that the attack started suddenly 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.
