Sources Confirm: US Knew Libya Attack was Terrorism Within 24 Hrs

Despite the fact that the Obama administration claimed the Libyan attack and murder of U.S. citizens was a “spontaneous event” triggered by protests over an anti-Islam film, sources now confirm that U.S. intelligence officials knew within 24 hours that the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was a terrorist attack with Al Qaeda-tied elements involve–although, according to Fox News, “it took the administration a week to acknowledge it.”

By September 12, U.S. officials confirmed that the “militant Ansar al-Shariah and Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb were likely behind the strike.”

An official said, “No one … believed that the mortars, indirect and direct fire, and the RPGs were just the work of a mob — no one.”

So why is it that THREE DAYS LATER, according to Fox News, CIA Director David Petraeus told a briefing with members of the House Intelligence Committee that this was an “out-of-control demonstration” caused by a YouTube video?  According to Fox News sources, this was “shocking to some members who were present and saw the same intelligence pointing toward a terrorist attack.”

Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H. told Fox News, “I think we should have answers right away. … I think they’re reluctant to tell us what this event really was probably because it’s an election year. But the American people deserve to know answers about what happened at our embassy in Libya.”
