It’s not President Obama; it’s certainly not his press secretary Jay Carey; it’s not Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; and it’s not the buffoonish Susan Rice. If you want the real story about what happened in Benghazi, Libya you need to keep tabs on the statements of Libyan President Mohamed Magarief. Here is what he told NBC yesterday:
In an exclusive interview with NBC News’ Ann Curry, President Mohamed Magarief discounted claims that the attack was in response to a movie produced in California and available on YouTube. He noted that the assault happened on Sept. 11 and that the video had been available for months before that.
“Reaction should have been, if it was genuine, should have been six months earlier. So it was postponed until the 11th of September,” he said. “They chose this date, 11th of September to carry a certain message.”
Magarief said there were no protesters at the site before the attack, which he noted came in two assaults, first with rocket-propelled grenades on the consulate, then with mortars at a safe house.
The attack took the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens, as well as information management officer Sean Smith and security personnel Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
Magarief told Curry that based on the accuracy of the assault, he believes the attackers must have had training and experience using the weapons.
“It’s a pre-planned act of terrorism,” he said, adding that the anti-Islam film had “nothing to do with this attack.
You know who else knew this right away? U.S. intelligence agencies investigating the incident. The had it pegged as terrorism and identified suspects within 24 hours.
The Obama administration has been covering this up from day one.
