Skip to comments.Attack on Libya Consulate May Have Been Planned, Say Officials
Posted on 09/13/2012 3:40:32 PM PDT by justlittleoleme
U.S. sources told CNN on Wednesday they do not believe the attacks that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya, were in reaction to the online release of a film mocking Islam.
It was not an innocent mob, one senior official told the news network, adding, The video or 9/11 made a handy excuse and could be fortuitous from their perspective, but this was a clearly planned military-type attack.
CNN also reported that a London think tank with strong ties to Libya speculated Wednesday that Stevens was the victim of a targeted al Qaeda attack to avenge the death of Abu Yaya al-Libi, al Qaeda's second in command killed a few months ago.
The "protesters" who attacked the embassy, he added, were more heavily armed than the Libyan security personnel who were assigned to protect the U.S. Consulate.

Gee, ya think?
You gotta get up pretty early in the morning to pull one past old Barry, by gum.
No- it was just workplace violence aka Ft.Hood, Libya
and the sun MAY rise in the east

Of course it was planned. These stone-age thugs don't have the brains to think for themselves.
What we should plan for is a couple of heavily armed Marine companies to arrive at the embasies by helicopter and turn them lose to defend our property.
Really? No Shiite Sherlock.
PLANNED? A grassroots protest movement?
It was a professionally executed terrorist operation by a professional Al Qaeda assassination team, whose 20 members acted under the orders of their leader Ayman al Zawahri after special training. They were all Libyans, freed last year from prisons where they were serving sentences for terrorism.
The operation is rated by terror experts as the most ambitious outrage al Qaeda has pulled off in the last decade. According to our sources, the gunmen split into two groups of 10 each and struck in two stages:
1. They first fired rockets at the consulate building on the assumption that the ambassadors bodyguards would grab him, race him out of the building and drive him to a safe place under the protection of the US secret service;
2. The second group was able to identify the getaway vehicle and the ambassadors armed escort and lay in wait to ambush them. The gunmen then closed in and killed the ambassador and his bodyguards at point blank range.
They would never plan such a bad thing.
In Journalese, "may" is 1 degree stronger than "some say."
I sure hope THESE Marines get to take real AMMO.
—It was not an innocent mob, one senior official told the news network—
So, if it had been unplanned and spontaneous, then it would have been an “innocent” mob that murdered the Americans...?
I know this is already known. The narrative that the media and our government is presenting is not this. This needs as much sunlight as it can get. They are distorting what has happened here on purpose.
Planned by the DNC.
No kidding. On the anniversary of 9/11 and right before the Jewish High Holidays begin.
Our President had to go to a fundraiser. My Dad taught me that actions speak louder than words. Obama can say whatever he wants. The fact is that four Americans were killed, including a United States Ambassador, and the most important thing for him was raising money for his campaign. What a hero.
