Washington (CNN) -- U.S. intelligence believes that assailants connected to al Qaeda in Iraq were among the core group that attacked the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, a U.S. government official told CNN.
That would represent the second al Qaeda affiliate associated with the deadly September 11 attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
Previously, intelligence officials said there were signs of connections to al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, the North African wing of the terror group.
The revelation that members of al Qaeda in Iraq are suspected of involvement in the Libya attack comes at a time when there is a growing number of fighters from that group also taking part in the Syrian civil war.

Leaking to CNN? Clinton friendly?
FACT: Abu Sufian Ibrahim Ahmed Hamuda bin Qumu,
was employed by Hillary Clinton and
conveniently released from Gitmo.
Well, lets see. Muslim jihadists with heavy weapons attack and overrun US embassy to celebrate 911. Al Qaeda? I’m not sure, its so hard to know.
Do I qualify for a job at State?

What we want to know is why the hell there was no security for these people?? And on 9-11 besides.
al Qaeda is in Iraq?? I don’t believe it. /s
I thought everything was fine in Iraq? Does the Obama administration tell the truth about anything? Obama and Hillary are a couple of Democrat grifters. There’s money involved in this.
The USS Obama is taking on water, the lifeboats are gone and the water is 33 degrees.
The rats are in CYA mode and leaking this information so it’s not them that gets tossed overboard with out so much as a life jacket.
You mean Iraqi Al Queda is now GROWING after we pulled our troops out of Iraq? Can't be. Obama and Co. told us Bush was a liar for even suggesting Al Queda was in Iraq.
AQ from Iraq would be the same AQ that billets the family’s of the leadership in QOM Iran and other locations throughout Iran. Therefore, if AQ was involved think that maybe they gave the information to their hosts in Iran, and then in turn Iran/Syrian Sp Ops took out the gun running operation that was being used against Assad? It is possible:)
It is the Clinton News Network after all.
What?? GW cleared Al Qeada out of Iraq and now Obama has let them back in? /facepalms
Now “Al-Quaeda in Iraq” is involved in the Benghazi mess??
Golly, would that be the same “Al-Quaeda in Iraq” that Obama was boasting in the last debate he had eliminated from that country??
The amount of lies coming out of Obama’s mouth is now a freaking snowstorm!!
And the same Al Qaeda that we were coordinating NATO airstrikes with against Kaddafi. Article from April 2011:
There was only one place for Mohammed to go: back to Afghanistan, under the protection of the Taliban....longing for the day when they could kill Kadafi and rule Libya in accordance with Islam.
Here Mohammed would have his encounter with the two men who shaped the future of radical Islam: Bin Laden and his chief lieutenant, Ayman Zawahiri....
But with the revolt against Kadafi that started in February, he once again found himself in an uneasy alliance with the United States...
Five days before he died, with gray in his hair and bags under his eyes, Mohammed climbed a concrete tower on the outskirts of Ajdabiya and phoned in positions to the rebel government so NATO could drop bombs on Kadafi’s forces.
Putting down his Thuraya satellite phone, Mohammed waved a shiny black 9-millimeter pistol...
A few hours later, Mohammed and his Omar Mukhtar brigade, one of the new military units officially sanctioned by the opposition government, rejoiced as blasts shook the city. A few started dancing and singing “God is great.”
