APPARENT UNMISTAKABLE COVER-UP OF TERRORIST ATTACK
by Sharon Rondeau
(Oct. 23, 2012) — Greta van Susteren of Fox News is reporting now that documents obtained by Fox News show that there were communications among the State Department, White House, the Pentagon, and other officials “in real time” during the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11 which killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
Emails show that the video originally blamed for the violence was never mentioned as a possible cause. “They knew that night as they were watching it…yet they sent Amb. Rice out on Sunday the 16th…then two days later, the President still pushing that video story,” van Susteren just said (10:05 p.m. EDT), referring to United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice, who appeared on five Sunday talk shows on September 16 and said that the “best intelligence” available indicated that an obscure anti-Islamic video incited rage among Muslims and caused them to attack the consulate.
Van Susteren’s guest, John Bolton, said that “This may be further proof of the ideology,” referring to the Obama regime’s desire not to offend Muslims by maintaining a strong defense of America’s overseas personnel. Bolton said that it was “foolish” for the White House to have thought that it could cover up the terror attack with the excuse of an anti-Islamic video. “They just didn’t want to acknowledge that Al Qaeda was surging in Libya…and that the Arab Spring wasn’t a success,” Bolton said.
“I think the President should address the nation…” van Susteren said.
The latest report contradicts an unnamed “intelligence official” who allegedly reported to some news outlets on Sunday that a combination of the video and militants stirred to action over it caused the burning of the consulate and the murder of four Americans.
According to the one of the emails, the terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia claimed responsibility for the attack.
Bolton’s conclusions concur with those of Denise Simon, a Middle East analyst who was interviewed by The Post & Email several days ago and for which the remaining half of the interview will be published shortly.
