Administration Knew "Within Hours" That Benghazi Attack Was Likely a Terrorist Attack Connected to al Qaeda

I don't know what's going on over at Reuters, but they are actually doing a decent job reporting on Benghazi and the Administration's many lies and deceptions.

Within hours of last month's attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, President Barack Obama's administration received about a dozen intelligence reports suggesting militants connected to al Qaeda were involved, three government sources said.

Despite these reports, in public statements and private meetings, top U.S. officials spent nearly two weeks highlighting intelligence suggesting that the attacks were spontaneous protests against an anti-Muslim film, while playing down the involvement of organized militant groups.

It was not until last Friday that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's office issued an unusual public statement, which described how the picture that intelligence agencies presented to U.S. policymakers had "evolved" into an acknowledgement that the attacks were "deliberate and organized" and "carried out by extremists."

Below the fold, here's Obama blaming the movie for the attacks 9 days later.


And here is Susan Rice 5 days after 9/11/12 blaming the movie. Notice she also says the FBI investigation "has begun". As of yesterday, the FBI had still not reached Benghazi.

Update: Hillary Clinton blames the video in front of Ambassador's Stevens' casket (thanks to Mega Independent)
