Skip to comments.Bombshell: White House Covers Up Ambassador's Murder, Were Warned of Attacks Months in Advance

We know the Obama administration has been actively engaged in a cover-up as to why the U.S. consulate in Benghazi came under attack on September 11th, killing Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other diplomats. How else to explain the weeks-long campaign to convince people that the attacks were not terrorism.
Now we're finding out more details as to why they may have engaged in such a wide-ranging cover-up.
But the real smoking gun is whether the Obama administration was warned in advance that al-Qaeda was planning an attack. A number of Israeli newspapers have suggested that Washington was warned as early as September 4 a week earlier that the environment in Benghazi was becoming increasingly hostile and anti-American, while in London the Foreign Office took the decision to withdraw all its consular staff from Benghazi two months before the murders. This decision was based on an intelligence assessment made by MI6 that al-Qaeda was openly operating in the area following a failed assassination attempt on Sir Dominic Asquith, Britain's ambassador to Libya, in June.
It is well known that British intelligence works closely with its counterpart in America, and if MI6 knew al-Qaeda was operating in the Benghazi region, then it is highly likely that the CIA did too.
Suddenly the Administration's "it's nothing to do with us, guv," defence is starting to look rather thin, with potentially disastrous consequences for Mr Obama's re-election prospects.
If indeed, Washington was warned about an "increasingly hostile and anti-American" environment in Benghazi on September 4th, it makes this State Department memo (since scrubbed from their website) on September 6th even more curious:

Only an ignorant fool would believe our intel is as disconnected as the Marxists’ profess.
The Marxists are lying scumbags.
People died, Obama lied. Mona Charen
The Ambassador’s dead and Al Queda is alive!
How could it be a bombshell if it doesn’t get reported?
I received a MALWARE WARNING from Avast! upon visiting the site. Be warned.
I missed this ... did you?
