Skip to comments.Sources: 3 al Qaeda operatives took part in Benghazi attack (Obama gave aid to our enemies)

Several Yemeni men belonging to al Qaeda took part in the terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi last September, according to several sources who have spoken with CNN.
One senior U.S. law enforcement official told CNN that "three or four members of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula," or AQAP, took part in the attack.
Another source briefed on the Benghazi investigation said Western intelligence services suspect the men may have been sent by the group specifically to carry out the attack. But it's not been ruled out that they were already in the city and participated as the opportunity arose.
The attack on the compound and subsequently on a "safe-house" to which Americans had been evacuated left four U.S. citizens dead, including the ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens.
If the AQAP members were dispatched to Benghazi, it would be further evidence of a new level of co-operation among jihadist groups throughout the Middle East and North Africa, counterterrorism analysts say.

CNN is reporting this?
CNN is clearly helping the administration get out front of next week’s Benghazi hearings. The sychophants at CNN are trying their best to de-fuse the story for their handlers in the administration.
Isn’t this an impeachable offense?
Only if a Republican had done this.
No. Can’t be true.
The attacks were caused by an awful video made in America.
That’s exactly what’s happening.
Al Qaeda wasn’t exactly on the run, as Obama declared after OBL was taken out.
No wonder they had to blame it on a youtube video. Admitting the truth would mean that Obama lied.
CNN is reporting this?
Read the comments. Liberal idiots.
This is the only question that matters
See also this story. Clearly more damage control by the administration. They are in panic mode.
My guess is like the guns for cartels fiasco, this is going to turn out to be a guns for Syrian rebels miscalculation. This administration reminds me of little kids trying to dress up in adult clothes.
TREASON - continuous, pre-meditated, agenda-driven, in-your-face, agency-abetted, representative-enabled, ongoing...
But, but hussein told us al Qaeda had been killed out!
Yup, Biden replied to Ryan in the VP debate that they were arming the "rebels" when he was asked what they were doing about Syria.
Oh. So that is what happened to the “investigation” into who perpetrated the attack. You know... The one the administration swore they would pursue. To “bring them to justice” and all......
Plus Stevens is deep-sixed, a twofer.
Not only that, but Barack Obama told us he has al Qaeda on the run.
Another one for you. Thank you for keeping us in the loop on the ever evolving Benghazi disaster.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
