Innocence of Muslims made by Terrorists
Shoebat ^ | 9/25/12 | Walid Shoebat
Posted on Tuesday, September 25, 2012 7:17:32 PM by Ben Barrack
There is more to the story of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula than what we are told by the media. Court documents reveal that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, producer of the movie Innocence of Muslims, partnered in a scheme with Eiad Salameh, my first cousin, a Palestinian Muslim from Beit Sahour in the Palestinian district of Bethlehem.
To prove my claim, I revealed Eiad Salameh long before this whole fiasco eruptedin 2008 and the first real reportage of Eiad and Nakoula was revealed on September 14th, 2012.
Now do I have your attention?
The narrative that circulates the media fails to answer crucial questions behind the mystery of this film.
For example, to date, no one has stepped forward or can confirm for certain that whoever holds an identity by the name of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is that mans true identity. In the Middle East, if a man by the name of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula indeed exists while being blamed for creating a mess of international proportionswhich included the anger of over one billion Muslimsit would not be that difficult to find the entire family in Egypt, including brothers, cousins, aunts, siblings wife, wives, ex-wives, mistresses, pets and all.
In the Middle East, no one can hide. Egypt is where the demonstrations that have taken place all over the Middle East and Asia were sparked. Yet, it cannot produce this mans background?
Besides, why would Nakoula, who claims to be a religious Coptic activist, have extensive connections with Eiad? My cousin hated Copts with a passion and is well-known in the Middle East as a master schemer, probably one of the best the Middle East has produced. He also has multiple contacts with terror networks.
Eiad is from Beit Sahour, Bethlehem. He is a dubious individual who was well known in the Arab community as the main contact for obtaining authentic, legitimate identifications from passports to credit cards, under many nationalities. He then places these identifications into the hands of dubious characters whose names are not the names written on the passports.
Eiad is a Muslim terror supporter and is not an Egyptian Copt. Both my cousin Eiad and whoever this man is who pretends to be Nakoula, had multiple, fraudulent identifications and the two connected for a decade in multiple scheming operationsthe type that usually links to terrorism.
The Daily Beast reported regarding Nakoulas bust:
The bust came around the time the feds were launching Operation Mountain Express, which would become a huge investigation into pseudoephedrine-dealing involving numerous people of a Middle Eastern background. The authorities initially insisted there were no links to terrorism, but suddenly switched and decided that a chunk of the money was going to Hizbullah.
Eiad, like Nakoula, portrayed and identified himself as an Israeli Jew, a thing Eiad did for years. He even fraudulently holds an authentic Israeli passport.
No one knows for certain that Nakoula is even who he claims to be, but we are 100% certain that both my cousin Eiad and Nakoula had multiple fraudulent identifications and what has never been disclosed until now is that the two were linked for at least a decade.
First of all, clan Nakoula also exists in Eiads village Beit Sahour Bethlehem. It is still the little town of Bethlehem, just as it was in Biblical times.
The feds are also silent and have kept much of this issue away from public view. Despite Nakoulas previous offenses, the Justice Department lawyers and federal agents defended him, giving several excuses to Judge Snyder and pushed for leniency, all because of him supposedly promising to help them catch Eiad.
Via the sentencing transcript:
he [Nakoula] has implicated Mr. Salamay [aka Salameh] there is no question that Mr. Salamay at some point is gonna be indicted if he hasnt already been we all know whats gonna happen. Salamay is gonna get arrested some day and based on the debriefing information turned over he is gonna enter a guilty plea, or if he doesnt, then Mr. Nakoula is going to be called in to testify
This claim by the Feds is false.
If the feds were indeed interested in catching Eiad, he was in fact doing his shenanigans for three decades without a single arrest and despite several arrest warrants issued.
He was in fact finally locked up in January 2011 in Canada as we were told by our contact out of the Intelligence Bureau in Canada (IBC) who wrote us by email (which we have the evidence).
While the Canadians wanted to keep Eiad in custody as long as it took and were working with the Feds to extradite him to the United States, the U.S. preferred not to bring Eiad in to face justice. Instead, they asked the Canadians to fly him to freedom in Palestine.
I received my last email from my contact on July 15th, 2011, which stated: He is awaiting deportation to Palestine, unless the US hurry up and indict him The feds never responded to the Canadians last appeal and within a few days, Eiad was put on a plane, courtesy of the Canadian taxpayers.
Where did he go?
The Palestinian terror connection to this film increases once we learned that Nakoula used Eiads last name Erwin Salameh portraying himself as his brother. As we also obtained from our contact in the IBC, Eiad was also involved with someone having the last name Tanas as late as 2011 and Nakoula had used the name Thomas J. Tanas.
In addition, the naming convention used by Nakoula in 2009 looks remarkably similar to one of Eiads embezzlement operations in 2000.
Nakoula used a fictitious company called M & A Trading in 2009, which he simply switched from Eiads A & M Trading as revealed in the U.S. Trustee report in 2001.
I can provide much evidence privately to reliable media, on the condition that the names of the agents remain anonymous (as per their request) but I have disclosed Eiad in all of my seminars to hundreds of FBI agents and police force.
Full Report Here.
So who is this man behind the film Innocence of Muslims?
To identify his motives, I then obtained a radio interview in Arabic that this supposed Nakoula gave in which he stated that he is not Christian but a secular liberal. He was asked, What is your position on the Jewish and the Christian faith? Nakoula responded, I have no calling for these religions.
Nakoula, who stated that he was an author of several books on Islam (written in Arabic) refused to give his name to the interviewer. Yet, if court documents give his legal name as Nakoula Bacile/Bassele Nakoula, I found no books under that name. Nothing. And neither did anyone produce them.
Nakoula was lying again and is no Coptic author.
A court document refers to a letter from a friend who referred to Nakoula as a God-fearing man whose first priority is his family.
This contradicts what he said in Arabic; he is not interested in Christianity or Judaism and is possibly a Muslim.
Nakoula claimed that he produced the film with his son, Abanob Basseley, and the money for it (between $50,000 and $60,000) came from his wifes family in Egypt.
None of this has been proven.
What has been proven is that he embezzled millions with Eiad and the money must have come from these scandalous operations, which are usually linked to terrorist activity.
Why would any anti-Islam Christian or even Jewish activist want the destruction of his own? It makes zero sense, unless of course this person intends to do harm to his real enemiesIsrael and the Copts.
Both are Eiads ardent enemies.
How is it possible that these two would snuggle up together for a decade?
On one hand, we have a Meth-dealer-Egyptian-Coptic-anti-Muslim-activist-fundamentalist-Christian. Then on the other hand, we have a Muslim-fundamentalist-Palestinian-scam-artist-terrorist.
The results of this entire fiasco will not be the apprehension of terrorists, but the continual chipping away at the First-Amendment, since Americans by and large are still practicing the art of self-blame while they ignore the real culprits who enter our country with the intent of doing it much harm.
The Smoking Gun has produced court documents telling us that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, producer of the movie Innocence of Muslims, partnered with Eiad Salameh and that Nakoula was finally caught in 2009 for his role in a check-kiting ring that stole over $870,000 from six financial institutions by using stolen Social Security numbers and identities.
In this, we will show how this story is mired in FBI failure and the Eiad connection is crucial in unraveling more facts to this story, since many of his dealings with Nakoula can tell us more about his true motives.
After all, Eiad Salameh is my first cousin, a Palestinian Muslim from Beit Sahour in the Palestinian Bethlehem District.
Video: Egypt’s Mursi implicated in murder of U.S. Ambassador?
Shoebat ^ | 9/13/12 | Walid Shoebat
Posted on Thursday, September 13, 2012 12:17:04 PM by Ben Barrack
There have been questions raised about whether the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Libya was done in conjunction with the attacks on the Embassy in Cairo. This video brings us closer to answering that question. In fact, it not only points to the same attackers but possibly to Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi himself.
Fast forward to the 1:15 mark in this video (if you dont understand Arabic). Watch as the raw footage of a firefight in Benghazi is taking place. The news report loops the relevant portion of an exchange between gunmen, in which one can be heard, saying, Dont Shoot us! We were sent by Mursi!
Obviously, that would mean at least two separate groups of gunmen in Libya are loyal to the President of Egypt.

Jordans Muslim Brotherhood has given King Abdullah II notice that he has until October to bow to their demand to transform the Hashemite Kingdom into a constitutional monarchy or face "Arab Spring" style street pressure for his abdication. Middle East sources report that Israeli and Saudi intelligence watchers are becoming increasingly concerned about the approaching climax of the conflict in Amman between Islamists and the throne.
For Israel, an upheaval in Jordan bodes the tightening of the Islamist noose around its borders Egypt and Libya to the south and Syria to the north, with unpredictable consequences with regard to Jordans Palestinian population.
Saudi Arabia, already threatened by Iranian aggression, fears the oil kingdom may be next in line if its northern neighbor is crushed under the marching feet of the Arab Spring.
The oil kingdoms royal rulers are reported to have belatedly woken up to the peril and are in a panic. They realize that their preoccupation with helping Syrian rebels overthrow Bashar Assad misdirected their attention from the enemies lurking at their own door.
Thousands of articles in the Arab press in the past year have predicted that after the Muslim Brotherhood seizes power in Damascus, Amman would be next in its sights followed by Riyadh.
The Jordanian monarch has options:
1. He could bow to the main Muslim Brotherhoods demand by submitting to the kingdoms transition to a constitutional monarchy and the transfer of executive power to an MB-led government by means of the electoral reforms for which the Brothers have been pushing for years. In Jordan as in Egypt, the Brothers hope for a two-third majority in a free election.
2. He could stand up to the Brotherhoods demands and order his security, intelligence and military forces to crack down on the opposition. This course carries the risk of plunging Jordan into the carnage of civil war among the diverse segments of the population.
The biggest dangers come from the Bedouin tribes, whose traditional allegiance to the Hashemite throne has weakened in recent years, and the Palestinians who form 60 percent of the population.
3. He could seek to negotiate a compromise through various brokers. Our sources report that several attempts at mediation have been ventured of late, but got nowhere because the Muslim Brotherhood sent its most radical leaders to the table and they left very little margin for compromise.
According to sources at the royal court, Abdullah will very soon meet with MB leaders for a personal appeal for calm after years of heated debate. Most observers believe that he has left it too late and by now the Muslim Brotherhood has got the bit between its teeth.
Indeed, according to an internal memorandum leaked to the Al-Hayat newspaper, the MB has already set a date for mass demonstrations against the King to start on Oct. 10 and ordered its members to go to work at once to mobilize at least 50,000 demonstrators for daily protests against the king and the royal family until he bows to their will.
The memorandum states: Every member must be dedicated to communicate with his relatives, close friends, acquaintances, fellow employees and various Islamic groups and patriots It calls for the formation of hotbeds to focus on the participation of groups affiliated with universities, schools and womens organizations.
Protesters are also advised on tactics for overcoming a security crackdown. Jordans Muslim Brotherhood has therefore moved forward from opposition propaganda, debating and political pressure to activism against the throne. Both Jordanian camps are anxiously watching to see which way the wind blows in the White House.
President Barack Obama has a balancing act to resolve: On the one hand, the Jordanian king has long been a staunch American ally and friend, its mainstay in many regional crises. On the other, Obama regards the Muslim Brotherhood as the linchpin of his external policy of outreach to the Muslim world.

an update from Egypt:
“Shafiq won the presidential election in Egypt in spite of millions of illegal, pre-checked-off ballots for Morsy were printed by the official government printing outfit. The illegal ballots were paid for by Qatari agents.
“In the hours waiting for the announcement to the nation of the result, FM Tantawi called Shafiq and congratulated him as President-elect and sent a detail of Republican Guards to Shafiq’s house to join the usual Secret Service detail for a presidential candidate.
“Anne Patterson, the American Ambassador to Egypt, visited Shafiq in his residence, ostensibly to congratulate him on his election. Lo and behold, she teld him that Morsy apparently ‘won and that there was nothing wrong with the Muslim Brotherhood takeover.’ Shafiq was shocked and was told that the Republican Guard detail is withdrawing. In a matter of hours, Shafiq and his family self-exiled themselves to the Emirates where they still reside to-date.
“Tantawi was told by the American Administration what the presidential election results should be and that explains why the Egyptian TV announcement was much later than expected.
“Last time I wrote you, you informed your readers, w/video link, that Mohammed El Zwahri, brother of al-Quaeda chief, was present in the El Abbasseya demonstrations some time ago. No American news ever mentioned it at the time and now his presence at the 9/11/12 American Embassy attack with al-Quaeda black flags was in some American news outlets.
“There will be a lot of bloodshed in Egypt’s very near future. People are making noise, daily.”
President Barack Obama has a balancing act to resolve: On the one hand, the Jordanian king has long been a staunch American ally and friend, its mainstay in many regional crises. On the other, Obama regards the Muslim Brotherhood as the linchpin of his external policy of outreach to the Muslim world.

On Friday, March 30, 2012, Hisham Y. Altalib visited the White House. According to visitor logs, Altalib was received by Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obama’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Four days later, White House officials welcomed a foreign delegation of the radical Sharia-enforcing Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt.
The White House meeting with overseas Muslim Brotherhood leaders was reported in April by a few mainstream journalists and questioned loudly by conservative media. But the White House confab in March with U.S.-based Altalib — which appears to be a prep session with the global Muslim Brotherhood’s American advance team — has received no attention until now.
So, who is Hisham Yahya Altalib? What is his agenda?
And why exactly did the Obama administration conduct domestic “faith-based” outreach with this Muslim Brotherhood figure in Virginia, who just happens to be 1) tied to bloody jihad and 2) a major contributor to the left-wing Center for Constitutional Rights, the group of jihadi-sympathizing lawyers who helped spring suspected Benghazi terror plotter Abu Sufian bin Qumu from Gitmo?
Altalib is an Iraqi-born Muslim identified by the FBI as a Muslim Brotherhood operative before he moved to America in the 1970s to earn an advanced electrical engineering degree from Purdue University in Indiana. By his own account, Altalib “soon became active in Islamic work in North America, which continues to this day.”
He was the “first full-time director of the Leadership Training Department of the Muslim Students Association of the United States and Canada (MSA)” — a longtime Muslim Brotherhood front group whose explicit goal is to “conquer” America through Islamic propagandizing.
Altalib is also a founding member of the SAAR Foundation and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). Last year, his online biography proudly notes, he was “awarded the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) Community Service Award.” The Saudi-subsidized ISNA is regarded as the primary U.S. umbrella group for Muslim Brotherhood fronts and was named specifically by the global MB godfathers as a key player in their “Grand Jihad” strategy of infiltration from within.
SAAR was founded in Herndon, Va., in 1983 as part of a radical Islamic charity front for Saudi financiers called the SAFA Group. The feds raided SAAR’s offices in 2002 as part of Operation Green Quest. Investigators confiscated 500 boxes and seven trucks’ worth of documents illuminating the network’s terror ties to the Al Taqwa Bank (a Swiss-based Muslim bank suspected of funding the 9/11 plot) and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Altalib worked for one of Al Taqwa Bank’s main owners, Youssef Nada. Altalib’s more prominent Muslim Brotherhood partner, Jamal Barzinji (one of the champions of the Ground Zero mosque), also worked for Nada. FBI and Customs officials believe SAAR/SAFA laundered money for a plethora of violent Muslim terrorist groups, from Hamas and Hezbollah to al-Qaida and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Along with several other leaders of the “Ikhwan” (brothers), Altalib and Barzinji established the International Institute of Islamic Thought in Herndon, Va., in 1985. Global Muslim Brotherhood thug Yusuf al-Qaradawi — the fire-breathing, fatwa-issuing Jew-hater and violent jihad proselytizer — inspired IIIT’s mission: the “Islamization of social sciences.”
According to Steven Merley of the Hudson Institute’s Center on Islam, Democracy, and the Future of the Muslim World, IIIT has 14 affiliated offices across the U.S., Europe, the Middle East and Asia [his must-read report on the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. is here - PDF]. Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, who put 1993 World Trade Center bombing mastermind Omar Abdel Rahman behind bars, notes that IIIT was a demonstrated unindicted co-conspirator in the feds’ Holy Land Foundation terror financing case. IIIT supported convicted terror aides Sami Al-Arian and Abduhrraman Rahman Alamoudi.
Altalib, Barzinji and IIIT were also all listed in funding statements from the Center for Constitutional Rights as major donors giving in the $25,000 to $49,000 range.
CCR is the umbrella group providing more than 500 pro bono lawyers to Gitmo detainees. They have regularly dismissed national security concerns about Gitmo recidivism as “irresponsible … scare stories.” That’s exactly what they did after one of CCR’s clients, Libyan terror leader Abu Sufian bin Qumu, was sprung in 2007.
Fast-forward five short years. Qumu is now the lead suspect in the 9/11/12 attack on our U.S. consulate in Benghazi that resulted in the murders of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, consular official Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs/private security contractors Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. In the wake of this month’s terrorist attacks on our Egyptian embassy, Libyan consulate and Afghan air base, the jihad helpers at CCR are stone silent.
This administration’s idea of domestic “faith-based outreach” is tea with Muslim Brotherhood community organizers who have embedded themselves in American life for four decades with the express intent of “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” Meanwhile, our commander in chief is squawking to the world about YouTube videos. The Ikhwan are laughing their bloodstained robes off.
Note the date.... y2002. It has been all downhill since then.
An Astounding Remark
Future of Freedom Foundation ^ | Sheldon Richman
Posted on Wednesday, February 06, 2002 6:05:45 AM by francisandbeans
When Attorney General John Ashcroft told the nation, “To those who scare peace-loving people with phantoms of lost liberty, my message is this: Your tactics only aid terrorists,” he wasn’t blazing any new trails. He was merely doing what despots and would-be despots always do: attempting to intimidate into silence those who dare to question him.
Ashcroft’s statement is one of the most astounding things to be said by a U.S. official in many years. To read it carefully letting its full message sink in is to be overtaken by a sense of horror that is otherwise hard to imagine. Every American should be offended to hear the government’s chief law enforcement officer equate public expressions of concern about the threats to liberty from drastic “anti-terrorism” measures with joining al-Qaeda.
I seem to recall that Bill Clinton commented that Americans had too many freedoms and the response thereto was muted.

Poison Photo-Drop .. decision to release photographs .. will imperil nation .. its defenders.
National Review Online ^ | May 12, 2009 | Andrew C. McCarthy
If President Obama wanted to refrain from releasing these photos in order to protect the military forces he commands or promote the security of Americans his two highest obligations as president he could do so by simply issuing an executive order. The applicable statute expressly allows for it, just as it provides for Congress now in the firm control of the president and his party to withhold the photos from disclosure. Instead, Obama and congressional Democrats are choosing to release the photos.
They are making that choice fully aware that it will cost lives.
It is a sedulous Democrat talking-point, repeated most recently by Carl Levin, the Senate Armed Services chairman and a key Obama ally, that the revelations of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib inspired new terrorist recruits, caused American combat casualties, and made the United States more vulnerable to terrorist attack.
This has long been Obamas own position. It is a charge he made throughout the 2008 campaign, and it is one he repeated just a month ago in his Strasbourg speech: When we saw what happened in Abu Ghraib, that wasnt good for our security that was a recruitment tool for terrorism. Humiliating people is never a good strategy to battle terrorism.

TEL AVIV A top Syrian government official speaking to KleinOnline denied that a rocket launched from Syria that landed in northern Israeli territory today was misplaced Syrian army firing, as has been widely reported.
I am not aware of any clashes between the Syrian Army and the rebels taking place so close to the Israeli border, added the Syrian official. In any case, the Syrian army does not fire rockets against the rebels.
The official further said that mortars launched from Syria that landed in Israel yesterday were not related to any fighting between the rebels and the Syrian army.
The official refused to say whether he believed the mortars or rocket were fired at Israel deliberately either by Syrian forces or by jihad groups.............(more at link)

Iranian Officers Reshape Assads Shabbiha Militia Into a Second Al-Qods (50,000-60,000 strong)
Irans Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has leapt into the Syrian battle arena, undertaking the task of transforming the Alawite Shabbiha militia, which has carried the brunt of Bashar Assads brutal suppression of the Syrian opposition for 18 months, into a new corps, retrained and reorganized on the model of the elite Al Qods Brigade. Al Qods is the IRGCs arm of clandestine and terrorist operations in Iran’s foreign arenas.
Military sources report exclusively that when the Shabbiha is slapped into its new military shape, Bashar Assad will have at his disposal an extra 50-60,000 professional Alawite soldiers under arms the nucleus of a Syrian Revolutionary Guards Corps.
Our sources also reveal that Tehran has promised the Syrian outfit weaponry on a par with the Al Qods arsenal. So, unless he is overthrown in the interim, the Syrian ruler and Iranian government will command the biggest special operations force in the Middle East. For this project, a massive Iranian airlift of personnel and weapons is running daily from IRGC air bases in Iran into Syria.....(more at link)

Libyan president to NBC: Anti-Islam film had ‘nothing to do with’ US Consulate attack
NBC News ^ | Sept. 26, 2012 | NBC News staff
Posted on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 3:12:50 AM by Free ThinkerNY
An anti-Islam film that sparked violent protests in many countries had “nothing to do with” a deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi earlier this month, Libya’s president told NBC News.
In an exclusive interview with NBC News’ Ann Curry, President Mohamed Magarief discounted claims that the attack was in response to a movie produced in California and available on YouTube. He noted that the assault happened on Sept. 11 and that the video had been available for months before that.
“Reaction should have been, if it was genuine, should have been six months earlier. So it was postponed until the 11th of September,” he said. “They chose this date, 11th of September to carry a certain message.”

Bombshell: Obama Administration Deleted State Dept. Memo From Internet
Gateway Pundit ^ | 9-27-12 | Jim Hoft
Posted on Thursday, September 27, 2012 10:55:05 AM by radioone
Full Headline: Bombshell: Obama Administration Deleted State Dept. Memo From Internet After Discovering Al-Qaeda Was Behind Benghazi Attack.
Yesterday there were reports that the Obama Administration found out the Al-Qaeda was behind the Benghazi consulate attacks within 24 hours of the assault that killed four Americans.
So what was their first action? Did they secure the compound? No, that took over a week to get FBI agents to the consulate Did they acknowledge it was an Al-Qaeda attack? No, Obama this week blamed the terror attack on a YouTube protest.
Heres what they did They scrubbed a damning State Department memo from the internet On Wednesday September 12, 2012 blogger Speak With Authority discovered that five days before 9-11, the US State Department sent out a memo announcing no credible security threats against the United States on the anniversary of 9-11.
The Overseas Security Advisory Council, who posted the memo, is part of the Bureau of Diplomatic Security under the U.S. Department of State.
Here is a screengrab of the memo at the OSAC website:

Fox News confirms Obama admin designated Benghazi sacking a terror attack within first 24 hours
Posted on Thursday, September 27, 2012 12:00:18 PM by chessplayer
Fox News follows up on Eli Lakes excellent reporting on the intel after the assassination of Ambassador Chris Stevens, confirming from their own sources that the US knew within the first twenty-four hours that the sacking of the Benghazi consulate was no spontaneous demonstration that spun out of control. In fact, they already suspected al-Qaeda of masterminding the planned terrorist attack on the compound days before even admitting that it had been a terror attack at all and had designated the incident as terrorism in order to pursue one suspect:
U.S. intelligence officials knew within 24 hours of the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that it was a terrorist attack and suspected Al Qaeda-tied elements were involved, sources told Fox News though it took the administration a week to acknowledge it.
The account conflicts with claims on the Sunday after the attack by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice that the administration believed the strike was a spontaneous event triggered by protests in Egypt over an anti-Islam film.
Two senior U.S. officials said the Obama administration internally labeled the attack terrorism from the first day in order to unlock and mobilize certain resources to respond, and that officials were looking for one specific suspect.
Four days later, the White House sent UN Ambassador Susan Rice to five different Sunday talk shows to claim that the sacking and assassination sprang from a spontaneous demonstration. That no longer can be explained as initial confusion over conflicting reports; it is now clearly a lie told by the White House. Jennifer Rubin pointed this out at the Washington Post even before the Fox report, and wondered where the national media that screeched at every claim by George W. Bush has suddenly become so comfortable with an administration that flat-out lies to them:

I know youve already read a bunch of Libya posts today but youre going to have to read a few more because this is indeed now a major scandal, from the lack of security at the consulate before the attack to the White House lies afterward about a spontaneous reaction to the Mohammed movie to the baffling failure of the FBI to get access to the consulate afterward. Two possibilities, neither one good for the administration. Either the FBIs been frozen out by bureaucratic infighting or they cant get access due to the Libyan governments inability or unwillingness to secure the building for a few days of investigation. Whatever the answer, as veteran Robert Caruso said today on Twitter, its hard to have a law-enforcement approach to terrorism without law enforcement.

Fox News has just reported that the US is withdrawing (supposedly temporarily) all its personnel from the US embassy in Tripoli, Libya. Whatdid they get advance word of a YouTube sequel to The Innocence of Muslims? Are they worried of another imminent spontaneous protest with marchers who carry mortars with them?
More likely the Clousseaus of Foggy Bottom have figured out they have serious security breach problems in Libya and perhaps elsewhere.

ISLAMIC LEADERS IN DEARBORN MICH. PLAN RALLY TO SUPPORT SPEECH PROHIBITION

Islamic leaders in Dearborn, Mich. are holding a rally this Friday night to build momentum for the passage of laws that prohibit speech or expression that hurts “the religious feelings of Muslims.”
Put together in response to the film “Innocence of Muslims,” rally organizer Tarek Baydoun said, “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to sow the seeds of hate and discord against the religious beliefs of others.” Rally co-organizer Osama Siblani added, “There is a need for deterrent legal measures against those individuals or groups that want to damage relations between people, spread hate and incite violence.”

Even before Defense Secretary Leon Panetta contradicted the initial story about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, today, Obama administration officials told ABC News they were concerned after the White House began pushing the line that the attack was spontaneous and not the work of terrorists.
Events were too uncertain, and suspicions had been aroused, officials said.
Panetta today said that the attack that killed four Americans on the anniversary of 9/11 was not only carried out by terrorists it was pre-meditated.
As we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place, Panetta told reporters, it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack.
The White House first suggested the attack was spontaneous the result of an anti-Muslim video that incited mobs throughout the region.
Lets be clear, these protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region, White House press secretary Jay Carney said on September 14.
When ABC News pressed Carney on whether that included the Benghazi attack, in which U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American men were killed, Carney said, we certainly dont know. We dont know otherwise. We have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack.
