Consulate attack planned as 2-part militant assault, Libyan official says (NOT the movie)

A Libyan official said Thursday that the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was a planned, two-part operation that included a raid on a supposedly secret safe house -- an account that comports with what a top U.S. lawmaker told Fox News a day earlier.

On Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers told Fox News that the strike was a "coordinated, military-style" operation.

Wanis al-Sharef, eastern Libya's deputy interior minister, then said on Thursday the attacks were suspected to have been timed to mark the 9/11 anniversary and that the militants used civilians protesting an anti-Islam film as cover for their action.

The same official also told Reuters that arrests have been made in connection with the investigation. It's unclear whether those arrested are chief suspects. Sharef said four people were in custody and being interrogated "because they are suspected of helping instigate" the attack, but stressed the Libyan government is still "gathering evidence."

They're trying to shove this "movie" business down our throats (and globally). I think it's important that we continue to rebutt and post that this was NOT the case as much as possible.

There was a bombing at the French embassy in Iraq on 9-9-2012.

There were no ambassadors killed in the wake of the War on 12 Cartoons or the Van Gogh film that I can recall.

This was an anti-American protest. Barry sided with anti-Americans as he has his whole life.

Chickens came home to roost.

The “movie” was a ruse to get their sheepies onto the street, light some bonfires, rip up flags, and make it look like a real angry protest. I’ve met a lot of Arabs and they’re anything but stupid...not saying they didn’t leave the ignorant behind. IOW, it’s pretty much staged for the world. There’s more going on in the belly of the beast that we know not of...

Not sure if there were deaths in the events you mentioned but think there were some when the cartoons were produced - also after the Popes talk at a University. We know they’re tricksters since, at least Lebanon, when they staged toys at bomb sites etc. We need fearless leaders to tell them loudly, and in no uncertain terms, to go to hell.

If incompetence is not corrected, than more incompetence will follow. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has proven herself to be incompetent. She must be dismissed.

Senior officials are increasingly convinced, however, that the ferocious nature of the Benghazi attack, in which rocket-propelled grenades were used, indicated it was NOT THE RESULT OF SPONTANEOUS ANGER DUE TO THE VIDEO, called Innocence of Muslims. Patrick Kennedy, Under-Secretary at the State Department, said he was convinced the assault was planned due to its extensive nature and the proliferation of weapons.

There is growing belief that the attack was in revenge for the killing in a drone strike in Pakistan of Mohammed Hassan Qaed, an al-Qa’ida operative who was, as his nom-de-guerre Abu Yahya al-Libi suggests, from Libya, and timed for the anniversary of the 11 September attacks.

The above just posted by SoFloFreeper. No wonder the bastards, marxistmedia and administration, have been pushing this “movie” LIE and distracting the rest of us by concentrating on Romney. They’ve put the poor American Coptic Christian through hell to cover their own butts. I’m so angry I could spit nails. Heads have got to roll!!!
