Skip to comments.CNN joins Fox in covering Benghazi revelations
Posted on 05/03/2013 7:00:40 AM PDT by EXCH54FE
Fox News is no longer alone in uncovering revelations about the Benghazi attack the Obama administration wanted nobody to hear about. CNN has done some investigating of its own and discovered that 3 Al Qaeda operatives were involved in the sustained assault on two US diplomatic facilities that claimed 3 lives.
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 theArabian 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.
This is precisely the sort of information that puts the lie to President Obama's campaign claim that "Osama bin Laden is dead and al Qaeda is on the run." That is why the media had to be signaled to ignore holes in the story, at least until the election was over. With one major exception, they did so, and focused in the early days on the "inappropriateness" of Mitt Romney commenting on the attack before all the facts were known.
According to one source, counterterrorism officials learned the identity of the men and established they had spent two nights in Benghazi after the attack. Western intelligence agencies began trying to track the men in the aftermath of the terrorist attack, but were always behind in their manhunt.

CNN was told to join in to spin the spin...can’t let FOX expose the truth and not have a say in it....SPIN SPIN SPIN..
Is the movie maker still in jail?
Time to cover Obamas lies and protect Kankles at all cost.
ABSOLUTLY TRUE. No truer words may ever have been spoken on this subject.
I thought four people died.
“CNN joins Fox in covering Benghazi revelations”
I imagine their (FOX and CNN) stories will not match.
This needs to be repeated over and over. For a while after the attack I thought Obama wanted to quiet it down simply because he and his administration had been asleep at the switch. But now, as more and more comes out, there is more to it than just being asleep at the switch, ergo the quickly built "the video did it" cover story.
Thread by thread, this is unraveling.
I think this is more about keeping Hillary safe for the 2016 run. We will never get rid of Obama. We can only neuter him to keep him from doing any more harm than he has already done. Especially if we could somehow take back the Senate.
However, this could keep Hillary out of the White House in 2016. “What difference does it make?” could come back to be a great campaign commercial for our side or her democrat primary competitors in a couple years.
"That was a long time ago ..."
Thank you Sharyl.
Or maybe CNN didn’t like BO mocking them and are tiring of supporting him—just maybe.
I always wonder what Obama meant when he sent a message to Putin that he would have more "flexibility" after his re-election.
1. What was the msg about?
2. How was he so sure he would be re-elected?
I hope you are right and I am wrong but unfortunatly I doubt it.
Curiouser and curiouser. Rush wondered if he was doing something trivial...shooting hoops or whatever, but logic says it was something more sinister. Was Moochelle in town ? An secret tryst with Beyonce ? A dinner with Jay-Z and a choom gang. Commies ? Soros ?
I'm intrigued just what the hell he was doing that he could not be interrupted.
It was a YouTube video!
Nothing to see here, move along.
No really, MOVE ALONG, or else!
You ask entirely too many questions ... look into the little red light
Fox will spin one way, CNN will spin the other. The result is each will cancel each other out.
I suspect Reggie knows exactly where his butt was the hole time!
Guarantied to lick the competition...
Thinking outside the box for a moment, maybe he was orchestrating the whole damn thing............. or is that just paranoia?
Mrs Bill/ Mrs Weiner 2016
Dereliction of duty, at minimum.
Impeachment is political, partially predicated on popularity, so its not out of the question in the next few months, once we confirm what he doesn't want/can't afford be known.
Gun running to al Qaeda?
It's hard to chant "Osama is dead, GM is alive" when we're secretly keeping al Qaeda alive by arming them against Syrians.
TREASON - continuous, pre-meditated, agenda-driven, in-your-face, agency-abetted, representative-enabled, ongoing...
I recall Hitler was not disturbed on D-Day, possibly because he was sleeping off a drug induced tiredness at the time...there is president for the self absorbed in power to assume their personal needs trump the public needs.
Nero fiddled, while Obama choomed, and Hitler slept...
The tip of the spear is now a blunt dobbin...
Head fake by Obama loving CNN?? Or is it real journalism?
Yes, let's not forget the very brave Sharyl Attkisson"
Don't pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel. (We need to update that one. Any suggestions?)
One of these days, CNN is going to wake up and remember that they used to be respected as a “hard news” organization (opinion has always been cr*p, but they were once The Best at dealing with actual news).
Probably nothing. He just removed himself from the decision loop so that they're be nobody with any authority to do anything, and let it take care of itself through inaction.
Maybe CNN has been tasked with putting this story to bed once and for all, taking that responsibility off Carey’s shoulders.
Her Heinous will not be pleased.
