Concerned about the reaction to an anti-Muslim film that was gaining attention online, the U.S. intelligence community sent a cable to the embassy in Egypt warning of the concern, a U.S. official told CNN. It was sent 48 hours before the protests in Cairo and Benghazi, the official said.

The cable did not discuss any specific threat, the official said. It warned instead about the existence of the movie being posted on the internet and the fact that it was gaining attention.

The film has been on the internet for quite awhile. But it seems the Islamofacists got wind of it on 9/11.

Wow! I sure did get it wrong. I’ve been reading that Obama was warned on sept 4th by Libya and Egypt. Well, at least it’s nice to know that Obama did give them a heads up.

Obama wanted a distraction from this economy so badly he gave the terrorists the justification.

They handed the MSM the key points in attacking Romney’s response. I wouldn’t put it past them to have faxed it out the very same hour that the mobs showed up at our embassies.

But, it took the US intelligence, to CALL ATTENTION to it. Seems it had been ignored prior to that.

Of course it is not about the film. Looks like something backfired on Obama and Hillarys methods regarding Arab Spring.

This is the State Department’s version of what happened, neatly sanitized for CNN.

I thought this supposed film was just a cover for the attacks.
