DUBAI - Al-Qaeda said the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya was in revenge for the killing of the network's number two Sheikh Abu Yahya al-Libi, SITE Intelligence Group reported Saturday.
"The killing of Sheikh Abu Yahya only increased the enthusiasm and determination of the sons of (Libyan independence hero) Omar al-Mokhtar to take revenge upon those who attack our Prophet," Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula said in a statement, quoted by the US-based monitoring group.
Al-Qaeda's Yemen-based offshoot did not claim direct responsibility for Tuesday's attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed the US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans.
But it stressed that "the uprising of our people in Libya, Egypt and Yemen against America and its embassies is a sign to notify the United States that its war is not directed against groups and organisations ... but against the Islamic nation that has rebelled against injustice."
The statement comes four days after Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri issued a video eulogising Libi, his late deputy and propaganda chief who was killed in a drone strike in June.
Mohammed al-Megaryef, the head of Libya's national assembly, said on Saturday that the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi was planned and "meticulously executed."

It’s the movie!
That’s been online for three months now. With no reaction. Until 9/11.
I had to tell a neighbor today that it was not the movie, seems he and his wife watch local channel news and that is all they have been told.
Anyway I corrected him and he told his wife
yes..and the press till blames the film clip..its not even a movie.
This towel-head needs to found and terminited. He was and is the brains behind Al Qaeda. Zawahiri has been dodging the US since the 9/11 attacks. He has lived way to long.
The /s tag should be obvious
It's time to drop a drone-fired Hellfire right on his raggy-wrapped punkin'head....
Don't forget to keep an eye out for Mullah Omar....
And this one (Gadahn) would seal the deal!
Al Qaeda doesn’t play fair. They didn’t give Obama an opportunity to apologize for killing Abu Yahya before going ahead with its embassy attacks. What kind of people are we dealing with here?
It couldn’t possibly be Obama spiking the ball. Hmmmmmmm
...for the killing of the network's number two Sheikh Abu Yahya al-Libi...Hey, after a visit from a smart bomb, even an entry-level terrorists winds up looking like number two.
But how can this be? His Highness said it was because of a murky, youtube film.
Not passing the smell test - sorry.
Agreed. All three of these muslim vermin need to be exterminated by high velocity projectiles impacting the their rotten Islamic brains.
