In response to NowWhatDoYouWant's comment:
THE lead bad guy SAYS the attack WAS because of the video.
ALQEIDA bad guy said "yea, it wasnt us it was a video" Of course you believe that.
all ground intelligence then and since, and the President of Libya at the time said it was a orchestrated attack by alqeida and had nothing to do with a video! Of course You dismiss that.
Obama DID call it an "act of terror" the day after.
Then for 5 days after that ^^^^ he and his staff ran the "it was a protest gone wrong over a video" into the ground including an embarassing display of cowardise in front of the UN!
You CANNOT show that the line of blame traces all the way back to Obama.
You wouldnt accept it if, he admitted it himself.
Now THAT is just plain pathetic.
Your responses get shot down, and so you just keep reposting the same thing?
You shot nothing down! Do you really think you are fooling people?
You took alqeidas word over our intelligence and the President of Libya.
You know after Obama called benghazi an "act of terror"; he then for 5 days including in front of the UN called it a protest over a video gone bad; which everyone but, the hyperpartisan left know was NOT true!
Typical. You think people are too dense to see through your ignorance.
Thank you for
OK, speaking of ignorance ...
1) You've got to stop calling this guy Al Qaeda. Ansar al Sharia is a local militia - not a global terror network.
2) When terrorists do something horrible, they claim credit. Ansar al Sharia claimed credit - Al Qaeda did not. They think they have a point to make - this guy's point was that he wasn't happy with the treatment of the prophet. He expressed remorse over the death of Ambassador Stevens. Where are the Al Qaeda videos celebrating the killing of an ambassador?
3) You say it's ridiculous to distrust our intelligence community - great! To this day, they maintain the attack was at least in part a reaction to the events in Cairo. They've never held any other position.
They have absolutely said the evidence shows it was a cooordinated attack and there was no protest and it was carried out over two locations and took over 12 hours. Buy a clue!
4) Magarief had no information of his own - he was offering an opinion. Of course, if he was of the opinion that Ansar al Sharia was to blame, would he openly express it, knowing that he would then be caught between risking war with the US or the militas that control much of his country, and who are recently responsible for the death of the last Libyan leader?
Look if tyou want to try to credit this guy who is an affliate of alqeida and in turn discredit our personnel that were there on the ground that is your right.
I think it is foolish and only done for political reasons but, that is your burden to carry.
Of the four points I made to support your ignorance, you conceded three, and replied to one with added ignorance. Do you think the fact that the attack was co-ordinated and lasted for hours disqualifies the influence of the video?
Afghanistan's Taliban claimed responsibility on the Camp Bastion attack in southern Helmand province which U.S. officials said killed two American Marines, saying it was in response to Innocence of Muslims. Camp Bastion, in southern Helmand province, came under mortar, rocket-propelled grenade and small arms fire late on September 14. Nearly 20 insurgents disguised as US troops breached the base and destroyed several hangars and fueling facilities. Before they were all killed or captured, the insurgents also managed to destroy six jet fighters and damage two others.
On September 21, 2012, an Egyptian militant group attacked Israeli soldiers near the Egypt-Israel border, killing one Israeli. In the ensuing gunfight between the Israeli Caracal Battalion and the militants, three militants were killed. The militant group cited the video as their motive for the attack.
In Yemen, the protests started on September 13, after Abdul Majid al-Zindani, a cleric and former mentor to Osama bin Laden, called on followers to emulate the attacks in Egypt and Libya.
Hours later, protesters had stormed the grounds of the U.S. embassy in Sana'a. Police fired into the air in an attempt to hold back the crowds, but failed to prevent them from gaining access to the compound and setting fire to vehicles. Guards in Sana'a used tear gas and a water cannon to drive back the crowd. At least 4 protesters were killed and 11 others injured; 24 guards were also injured.
The U.S. responded by sending a Marine FAST unit to Yemen.
