CNN: Al-Qaeda operatives part of Benghazi attack

posted at 9:21 am on May 3, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

Yeah, but it happened so long ago. What difference at this point does it make?  Actually, it makes plenty of difference, as CNN reports (via Jim Geraghty):

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 the Arabian 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. …

If the AQAP members were dispatched to Benghazi, it would be further evidence of a new level of co-operation among jihadist groups throughout the Middle East and North Africa, counterterrorism analysts say.

That might make quite a bit of difference when it comes to the idea of intervening in other civil wars, no? In fact, these particular AQAP agents made their way from eastern Libya after the attack to Mali, where al-Qaeda and its allies nearly succeeded in overthrowing the government and creating an AQ state.  Only a French military intervention in Mali stopped the country from falling to the terrorist networks we have been fighting for decades.

And there is also a connection between Benghazi and the terrorist attack and seizure of the natural-gas facility in Algeria this year, too:

Another source briefed on the investigation had previously told CNN that Belmoktar had received a call in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack from someone in or close to the city. Whoever made the call was excited.

“Mabruk, Mabruk!” he repeated, meaning “Congratulations” in Arabic. …

Belmoktar is an Algerian terrorist operative linked to al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb who claimed responsibility for the attack on the In Amenas gas facility in southern Algeria in January this year. Some 38 people were killed during a three-day siege there. …

There has never been any confirmation of his death, and one source briefed by Western and regional intelligence officials told CNN that Belmoktar may have started operating in the “desert triangle” straddling the borders of Algeria, Niger and Libya.

Belmoktar is believed to have moved to the region in late 2012 after signs that an international intervention in Mali was growing more likely. Known as ‘the Salvador pass,’ the area is a key transit points for drug traffickers and international criminal groups.

All of this was made possible by the toppling of Moammar Qaddafi by the Obama administration and NATO without making any effort to secure the ground from the Islamist terrorists already known to operate in eastern Libya.  Instead, we created a vacuum in which they could seize control, and they did.  Now the region serves as a launching pad for terrorist operations throughout northern Africa.

An intervention in Syria would do the same thing in the Middle East.  That’s the difference at this point all of this makes.

Does Darrell Issa get to call Hillary back to thee committee during this round of hearings because she’s got more ‘splaining to do, or are the Dems and the media going to try and claim despite the new information, she’s already been acquitted testified once, and to do so again would be double jeopardy unnecessary?

Funny, I recall when Saddam was toppled and al-Queda in Iraq filled the vacuum, we never heard the end of it from the left. And at least al-Queda in Iraq WAS IN IRAQ!!! They were going after our soldiers in that country, not expanding elsewhere in the region and targeting American civilians and ambassadors.

Those of us who are actually paying attention to this cr@p had that fact figured out in about thirty seconds.

Remember those “spontaneous” protests against the Danish Mohammed cartoons? Crowds of people who previously never knew Denmark existed suddenly appeared, with Danish flags ready to burn. (Danish flags are not exactly normal stock at your corner grocery store.) All of that was carefully planned and orchestrated beforehand. Nothing happens “spontaneously” in that part of the world.

Good Lt on May 3, 2013 at 10:01 AM

It was such a long time ago because according to the MSM, there was nothing to see. They wouldn’t report it, so playing catch up here is useless. They almost got away with it, but almost don’t count, only in horseshoes.

It has worked on many levels, as I am hard pressed to find a regular Joe that knows what Benghazi is, let alone what happened there. They do however play “words with friends”.

I am not judging anyone. I can say with 100% accuracy had it been my own son killed, I would be holding a press conference everyday, somewhere. I would not have kept quiet.

Difficultas_Est_Imperium on May 3, 2013 at 10:19 AM

Hillary was in a hearing before congress wasn’t she? She lied to congress didn’t she? Hillary needs to be prosecuted for perjury and jailed and jailed if found guilty.

Obama lied about this. Susan Rice lied about this. Joe Biden lied about this. This administration needs to be impeached.

All of them need to answer for the deaths they had responsibility for and lied about.

In fact, these particular AQAP agents made their way from eastern Libya after the attack to Mali, where al-Qaeda and its allies nearly succeeded in overthrowing the government and creating an AQ state.

Oh but it gets even better! Apparently not only did the Obama admin create a jihadi haven in Libya but apparently thought it would be a good idea to hire AQ linked personnel for our embassy security! But this was all so long ago, what does it matter now, right Carney?

Good thing the adults are in charge now…smart power my ass!

DUH!

Obama helped AL QAEDA-backed rebels take over Libya.
Obama allowed AL QAEDA-backed rebels acquire over 2,000 rocket launchers when Libya fell, several which we saw used in the attack.
Stevens reported before his death & while he begged for additional security that AL QAEDA flags were flying over new Libyan govt buildings & that they had started up 10 new terrorist training camps….

easyt65 on May 3, 2013 at 11:02 AM

…despite the FACT that the Obama administration aided the very terrorists who perpetrated 9/11….and helped them assassinate Ambassador Stevens, the 1st ambassador to die inn over 30 years, in the infamous words of Hillary Clinton, “What does it material?!”

HERE is why it matters: Obama/Hillary covered up the fact that they were warned of the pending terrorist attack & Americans died! HISTORY THEN REPEATED ITSELF. 7 MONTHS LATER ON U.S. SOIL! We now know both Russia & Saudi warned this administration about the Saudi bombers in advance….and once again they did nothing! And after the terrorist attack that killed Americans that Obama began lying & covering up, denying he had been warned, etc.

If this would have been addressed regarding Benghazi there is a good chance Boston would not happen. Thanks to Obama’s sympathizing with Islamic Extremists, the media covering for Obama who is covering for himself we now have more dead Americans & another successful terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

If true, Hillary will not be able to get away with “What difference does it make now”, so how does she spin it?

Nomas on May 3, 2013 at 12:15 PM

I know for many of you, the daily weather report is cause for losing it about Obama and/or Hillary…but just for a moment

The narrative many here have embraced about Benhazi is some massive cover-up – and Obama’s promises of a full and through investigation were met with the expected derisive mockery.
So now…this investigation (which you all know is just a cover up to what really happened)..has revealed some potential details about AQAP’s involvement/participation in the attack…even with some names etc. That’s some good investigatin’, huh!
But wait…despite your insistence of Obama’s and Hillary’s ‘lies’, you now accept fully the results of this not-to-be-trusted investigation?
I mean why would you for a minute believe this? You know Obama and Hillary are trying to hide AQ involvement here…by, um…revealing AQ involvement?

This is like Beck/Jones distrust of the government/LEA version of Boston…which they try and prove via information provided by the government/LEA.

Sorry but Obummer, Shillary and the entire admin are dragging their feet on this. First they tried to hide the fact it was a terrorist attack, instead blaming it on a lame video no one had seen. Obviously that BS didn’t fly with anyone other than those with just one functioning synapse or the most ardent Obama drone! Since it was obviously a planned terrorist attack and had NOTHING to do with a lame video Obummer had to abandon that line of spin and concede the fact most of us knew already, that is it was a planned terrorist attack and not a response to some video no one had seen.

Instead I believe the real reason Obummer and his admin are dragging their feet and not cooperating is due to the information currently coming out in an article I linked to in an earlier comment. What Obummer and Shillary are trying to hide by dragging their feet is the fact Obummer and Shillary HIRED AQ affiliated personnel to provide security for our embassy and their staff!

If I were Obummer and Shillary I would be dragging my feet and lying too to keep that from coming out! I mean really, they HIRED know AQ affiliates to protect our embassy? It’s a good thing the adults are in charge now, right verbulace?

Non intervention in syria doesn’t prevent al qaeda from operating there like they are already doing. It won’t prevent syria from becoming a failed state like afghanistan, yemen, mali, and somalia. If syria breaks up into ethnic regions (sunni, shite, kurd) this could lead to the overthrow of the governments in turkey, lebanon, and jordan.

What do you view my conspiracy theory to be?
