It is ever clearer that the Obama Administration knew it was a jihad attack and lied in a vain attempt to cover up the abject failure of their support for the Islamic supremacist “Arab Spring.” As previously reported at Jihad Watch: “Benghazi attack: CIA reported ‘within 24 hours’ Islamist militants to blame,” by Peter Foster in the Telegraph, October 19 (thanks to Twostellas):
Barack Obama was under renewed pressure over his handling of the fatal attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi last night, after CIA sources said they had reported “within 24 hours” that the assault was carried out by Islamist militants.
The claims raised fresh questions about when exactly Mr Obama learned that the storming of the consulate was a terrorist event, as senior Republicans continued to accuse him of misleading the public over the attacks in order to protect his record on neutralising al-Qaeda.
As the US general election enters its final weeks, the Benghazi incident has become an increasingly charged political issue ahead of Monday’s last presidential debate, which will focus exclusively on foreign policy.
Mr Obama defended his record on Benghazi during an appearance on the acerbic current affairs comedy programme, The Daily Show, pledging to get to the bottom of what happened and hold those responsible.
However his pledge to track down those responsible for killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans was contrasted by a report from Benghazi that one of the alleged ring leaders in the attacks was openly mocking both the Libyan and US governments.
Ahmed Abu Khattala, who has been linked to the militia group Ansar al-Shariah gave a two-hour interview to the New York Times at a luxury hotel, in which sipped a strawberry frappÃ© while boasting no one had questioned him over the attacks and that he had no plans to go into hiding.
Mr Obama was also asked why Susan Rice, the US Ambassador to the United Nations, was still linking the attacks to an offensive video a week after the attacks, when other officials have subsequently testified that it was already then clear to intelligence agencies that attack was terrorist in nature.
“The truth is that information comes in, folks put it out throughout the process, people say it is still incomplete,” Mr Obama told the show’s host Jon Stewart.
“What I was always clear about was we are going to do an investigation and figure out what happened.”
He later added: “Every piece of information that we got as we got it we laid it out for the American people, and the picture eventually gets fully filled in and we know how to prevent it in the future.”….
You’ll never prevent it as long as you keep lying about its root cause.
