The United States intelligence community does not believe the core of al Qaeda was behind this week's attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, a U.S. intelligence official told CNN Thursday.

The official said the picture is becoming clearer within the intelligence community as to what group or groups were responsible for the attack. Given what officials know about al Qaeda in Libya, U.S. intelligence believes it is very unlikely that core al Qaeda was behind the attack. But the official said the intelligence does not rule out that the attack was perpetrated by al Qaeda sympathizers.

I believe Iran is the planner and used surrogates including Al Qaeda under their influence to carry out the plan.Money was paid. Iran has two degrees of separation and is blameless.

More coming out confirming what we’ve all been saying. It wasn’t the “movie” but a planned 9-11 attack.

Thanks for posting this...let’s keep them coming to override the pressitutes and Administrations “movie” assertions. Hillary was out again today apologizing for the “movie” and hurt feelings, blah, blah.

And her hairdo was really gross.

Right, it was a rogue al quaeda member...

A one-off attack.

An isolated incident.

Workplace violence.

Overworked underpaid terrorists with better healthcare than us.

Right.

These guys did it..............The Imprisoned Omar Abdul Rahman Brigades, in fact, first surfaced in May when it claimed responsibility for an attack on the ICRC office in Benghazi. The next month it claimed responsibility for detonating a blast outside the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. It also released a video of the attack.
