We all knew, but the Obama administration would never admit that the attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi were not n fact caused by an anti-Muslim YouTube video.
A report issued by House Republicans confirmed that the White House kept going with this lie, even though they had eye witness accounts and real-time intelligence that told them this was a premeditated terrorist attack.
According to portions of the Republican report reviewed by Fox News, one U.S. agent at the American outpost in Benghazi, whose name was withheld for security reasons, told the committee he first heard “some kind of chanting.”
Then that sound was immediately followed by “explosions” and “gunfire, then roughly 70 people rushing into the compound with an assortment of “AK-47s, grenades, RPG’s … a couple of different assault rifles,” the agent said.
In addition, a senior watch officer at the State Department’s diplomatic security command described the Sept. 11, 2012, strikes as “a full on attack against our compound.”
When asked whether he saw or heard a protest prior to the attacks, the officer replied, “zip, nothing, nada,” according to the Republican majority report.
“None of the information coming directly from the agents on the ground in Benghazi during the attacks mentioned anything about a video or a protest. The firsthand accounts made their way to the office of the Secretary through multiple channels quickly …,” the report concluded.
This shows that the YouTube video stunt was nothing short of a spin to keep Barack Obama in office. What makes matters worse is that Hillary Clinton now has the Democrats running block for her so that she can become the next POTUS and continue this line of poor leadership.
