When the supposed "offensive video" was on youtube it had roughly 400 views, prior to the attack.
Now I don't know just how many people in Benghazi even had access to the internet on 9/11/12, but it could not POSSIBLY be a huge number.
And to put a finer point on it, there are WAY worse "offensive" anti-muslim videos out there, and were more widely seen at the time.
What was SO special about this particular video?
Was it projected on a movie screen to ramp up anti-US fever?
And supposedly the Muslim Brotherhood was behind the attacks, yet are in NO WAY associated with al-Qaida.
Even though they themselves admit they are.
This "story" stinks on so many levels.
“Was it projected on a movie screen to ramp up anti-US fever?”
I read something today, responding to this same NY Times piece that said that Terry Jones (remember him, the Florida Pastor who was going to burn the Koran? Plus, he went to school with Rush Limbaugh. That is the totality of what I remember about him) was going to do something with this film, show it in theaters or something.
I’m sorry I can’t remember where I read that. But the point the person was trying to make was that OF COURSE the CIA, or whoever, was well aware of this silly film and might have been aware that it would cause problems.
Anyway, I don’t really get it. Suppose the stupid movie WAS the motivator, what does that change?
Theo Van Gogh was killed, absolutely because of an anti-Islamic film he made. That wasn’t OK.
But . . . but . . . networks popular in Benghazi were already “spewing outrage” against the video. It must have been the video, with these detailed, specific, proven facts!
We know Hillary is dirty. Everyone knows she failed and got people killed in Benghazi. SHAME on Hillary Clinton. She should be too ashamed of her self to be in public much less try and get elected El Presidente. SHAME ON THE NAME CLINTON.
