Confidential documents obtained from the U.S. government appear to confirm that the American public was lied to repeatedly by this U.S. administration regarding the September 11, 2012 attack on an American government compound in Benghazi, Libya.
Documents obtained through legal channels by the watchdog organization Judicial Watch and discussed on Fox News revealed several significant facts about what government officials knew and when they knew it.
One fact revealed by the legally-obtained documents is that within days of its occurrence, the U.S. intelligence agencies knew that the attack in Benghazi was planned to coincide with the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack on U.S. soil. This information was contained in a September 16 memo which was sent to the National Security Council, the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency.
In other words, the U.S. government knew when it blamed an amateurish video for the rioting and murder of U.S. citizens, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, that Islamic terrorists and not American videographers, were to blame.
“The Obama administration says it was a coincidence that [the Benghazi attack] occurred on 9/11. In fact, their intelligence said it wasn’t a coincidence, and in fact, specifically the attack occurred because it was 9/11,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.
In addition, it was learned that an internal Defense Intelligence Agency memo “predicted the rise of ISIS and the establishment of a caliphate 17 months before U.S. President Barack Obama called ISIS ‘jay-vee.'”
How the administration will explain the long delay in response to a global threat its own experts predicted is not yet clear.
No doubt Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is in for a bumpy ride.
