The Brigades of the Imprisoned Sheikh Omar Abdul Rahman, which claimed the June 6, 2012, bombing of the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, released a video of what it says is the attack. In a communiqué posted on jihadist forums on June 11, the group reported that its fighters planted an explosive in the wall of the consulate, the blasting of which injured a number of guards. It added that the attack came in response to the drone strike on al-Qaeda official Abu Yahya al-Libi in North Waziristan, and also in response to American drones flying in Libyan skies.

Watch the video and explain to me how this Administration could fail to realize the attack was by Al Qaeda. Put out by Al-Qaeda's propaganda arm, clips of Bin Laden and Al Zawahri, and showing the twin towers burning.

Three months ago, Al Qaeda swore to get revenge for Abu Yahya al-Libi's death and our response was to post 8 local security guards at the consulate to protect our Ambassador. Criminal negligence and even our MSM can't keep this under wraps for much longer.

Somebody “dumpped” the video “the Innocence of Moslems” into the egyptian media, it had been around on youtube for months. But aired in Moslem MSM just before 9/11/12.

The answer's in your question. If there's nothing else to blame it's Obama's fault.

Obama failed. He's trying to blame it on a film freedom of speech.

Watched several interviews by FOX news reporter overlooking the street mobs outside the US embassy in Cairo

the cameras quickly panned over the giant background poster of “the blind sheikh” - with no comment

My prediction obama will cut a deal
Egypt will get their billion dollar US taxpayer checks - and will get the blind sheikh back as a folk hero, even if indirectly by obama sending him to an intermediary nation like France that will release him to Cairo

WE the uSA will get...well, maybe less embassy riots orchestrated by the muslim brotherhood........until after obama’s re-election

such a deal

Militants from the Shaykh Omar Abdulrahman Brigades, an AQ affiliate responsible for a number of bombings and shootings in Libya staged the initially peaceful protest as a cover for the planned assassination of Ambassador Stevens.

It appears that a Libyan security guard was in league with the Shaykh Omar Abdulrahman Brigades and advised them on the ambush timing.

The double agent Libyan security guard likely tipped off the militants as to the safe house location that was then attacked and set on fire.

The militants withdrew and the remaining occupants of the safe house exfiltrated as they were able. Friendly Libyans found Stevens and carried him to the hospital where he was declared dead.

The attack was in retaliation for the killing of AQ#2 Abu Yahya al-Libi in June. This attack was likely planned and led by Abdulbasit Azuz, a long-time associate of Ayman al-Zawahiri. Azuz is old school AQ muj, fought the Russians in Afghanistan.

Azuz was sent by Zawahiri to Libya from Pakistan in early 2011 to start a branch of AQ. They have a training camp near Derna, Libya with about 30 militants. They are connected to the AQ in the Islamic Maghreb that are well established to the west and likely participated in the raid also.
