Breaking: Fox News confirms Obama admin designated Benghazi sacking a terror attack within first 24 hours

posted at 10:35 am on September 27, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Fox News follows up on Eli Lake’s 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:

Eli Lake let loose a bombshell yesterday: “Within 24 hours of the 9-11 anniversary attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, U.S. intelligence agencies had strong indications al Qaeda–affiliated operatives were behind the attack, and had even pinpointed the location of one of those attackers. Three separate U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast said the early information was enough to show that the attack was planned and the work of al Qaeda affiliates operating in Eastern Libya.”

Obviously the report, if true, suggests that the White House lied to the American people by insisting for over a week that this was a spontaneous attack. It is one thing for the president to be so benighted as to think a video sets off multiple attacks on Sept. 11. It is quite another to send out his advisers, including his own spokesman, to mislead voters. …

And finally, now is the time when we see if reporters and pundits are more than shills for the president. The incompetency, and perhaps mendacity, of thee White House here is severe. The media’s glaring unwillingness to hold the president accountable for his actions can be at least partially remedied if they pursue the story vigorously. Even though Bush in good faith believed his intelligence community’s take on weapons of mass destruction, the left-leaning elites hollered, “Bush lied, people died!” But here we have dead Americans and an cover story in shreds. Why is there not, at a bare minimum, a call for answers? Isn’t this a top-of-the-fold issue? Well, my guess is that pundits and reporters alike in the mainstream media will do their best to soften and downplay the story.

I hope I’m wrong and that the media live up to their journalistic responsibilities, but I see little evidence that an epidemic of fairness is breaking out in the mainstream media. All the more reason, then, for lawmakers and Romney to push for answers. Certainly, we shouldn’t have a president in office who would lie to the American people about a critical national security issue for the sake of his own reelection, right?

Jennifer should start by asking her own colleagues at the Post.  Aside from Glenn Kessler, who began pointing out the politics involved in the cover story today, the newspaper hasn’t done much to challenge Rice’s account or the fallout from its collapse.

Update: Jim DeMint called for a complete investigation into the White House’s “misleading” statements even before Fox broke this news:

Officials claimed the attacks were “spontaneous” and a result of a
 protest that had “spun out of control.”  Ambassador Rice denied it was 
premeditated, stating that the protest was “hijacked by some
 individual clusters of extremists…and then it evolved from there.”

Then, finally, the National Counterterrosim Center Director Matthew 
Olsen stated in a Senate hearing the four Americans were killed “in
 the course of a terror attack” that may have connections to al Qaeda, but that we do not have specific intelligence of “significant advance
 planning”.

Again, this is a different narrative described by Libyan President
 Megariaf, who said the attack was carried out by foreign militants who
 had infiltrated Libya and had been planning these events for months.
 The contradictory and changing stories stemming from the same events 
are worrisome.

It’s far past time to get all the facts. We need a comprehensive
 detailed report rather than waiting for various officials to dribble
 them out one interview at a time.

Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and I have introduced legislation to require the Obama
 Administration to conduct an official investigation and issue a report
on the September 11-13, 2012 attacks on United States missions in
 Libya, Egypt, and Yemen within 30 days. It also requires the Secretary 
of State to submit recommended changes to security procedures.

It’s time to flush out the liars.  As Glenn Reynolds says — faster, please.

And despite the Mid East being engulfed in fire and blood from Syria to Egypt, President Obama goes on Letterman’s late Show to voice his ignorance of the national debt;

thenhosted a $40,000 / plate fundraiser at Rapper Jay Z’s 40/40 club in NYC, where guests drank $800 / bottle champagne;

This past Sunday, Pres. Obama played his 106th round of golf;

and on went to ABC studios to provide ‘eye candy’ for the women of ‘The View’ TV show.

President Obama cannot meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Egyptian President Morsi because of ‘scheduling conflicts.’

FBI Still Not Granted Access to Site of Libya Attack
******************************************************

More than two weeks after attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, FBI agents have still not been granted access to investigate crime scene
First Publish: 9/27/2012, 2:48 PM
***********************************

More than two weeks after the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, which resulted in the death of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, FBI agents have still not been granted access to investigate the crime scene, sources said.

“They’ve gotten as far as Tripoli now, but they’ve never gotten to Benghazi,” CNN National Security Analyst Fran Townsend said Wednesday, citing senior law enforcement officials.

Last Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters that an FBI team had reached Libya earlier in the week.

“In fairness to the secretary, it may be that she wanted to be coy about where they were in Libya for security concerns. That’s understandable. But the fact is, it’s not clear they’ve been in Libya for very long,” Townsend told CNN.

“They had difficulty, and we understand there was some bureaucratic infighting between the FBI and Justice Department on the one hand, and the State Department on the other, and so it took them longer than they would have liked to get into country. They’ve now gotten there. But they still are unable to get permission to go to Benghazi,” she said.

FBI agents have requested for the crime scene to be secured, but that, too, has not yet occurred.

“The senior law enforcement official I spoke to said, ‘If we get there now, it’s not clear that it will be of any use to us,’” she told CNN.

While the FBI has conducted interviews with State Department and U.S. government personnel who were in Libya at the time of the attack, they have been denied their request to directly question individuals in the custody of Libyan authorities, she added.

Speaking to reporters last Thursday, White House spokesman Jay Carney clarified that the assault was, in fact, a “terrorist attack.”

Addressing a special meeting at the U.N. on Wednesday, Clinton suggested there was a link between the Qaeda franchise in North Africa and the attack. She was the highest-ranking Obama administration official to publicly make the connection.

“Now with a larger safe haven and increased freedom to maneuver, terrorists are seeking to extend their reach and their networks in multiple directions,” Clinton said. “And they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions under way in North Africa, as we tragically saw in Benghazi.”

Officials later said the question would be officially settled only after the F.B.I. completed a criminal inquiry, which is expected to take months.

They said they had not ruled out the involvement of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, an affiliate of the international terrorist group with origins in Algeria, in an attack the administration initially described as a spontaneous protest turned violent.

You’re right.

My bad.

Unfortunately, the socialist parasitic class, which constitutes a major proportion of Obama’s supporters, couldn’t care less as long as Obama rubs their bellies and keeps the government “free stuff” flowing.

F**k off with your cryptic bulls**t, troll. It’s been transparent for a while now.

And what KJ said. Evidently, the attack was an event somehow justified in Dante’s mind as not terrorism. What a pathetic mindset for one to own, no?

I’m sure NBC, CBS and ABC will lead with this. Oh…what am I thinking!!!!!!

If they do not just ignore this the MSM will discount and dismiss it.

That’s how they support and protect their guy from bad news.

Are you saying that al Qaeda’s murder of Ambassador Stevens was justified?

kingsjester on September 27, 2012 at 10:57 AM

Are you trying to put words in my mouth? Why yes, yes you are. You are also completely missing the point.

Eric felstrom was on Fox awhile ago and it was weak sauce indeed. “We can’t deal with our problems in the Middle East if we’re not honest about them.”. He’s a terrible spokesman, and always looks like he just rolled out of bed. CALL HIM OUT AS THE DAMNED LIAR THAT HE IS!

John 8:44

New International Version (NIV)

44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Obviously the report, if true, suggests that the White House lied to the American people by insisting for over a week that this was a spontaneous attack. It is one thing for the president to be so benighted as to think a video sets off multiple attacks on Sept. 11. It is quite another to send out his advisers, including his own spokesman, to mislead voters. …

Shouldn’t someone in the MSM be interested in WHY!!!!!!?????

Okay, you may fire when ready, grizzly.

hawkdriver on September 27, 2012 at 11:01 AM

I didn’t say that it was justified. I said the public has been conditioned to label anything an act of terrorism, and that the State couldn’t be happier.
