Benghazigate: Obama’s “Bad Intel” Excuse is Falling Apart

The current excuse is that Obama wasn’t lying when he and his cronies kept blaming a video, he was the victim of “bad intel” from the “bad intelligence” community. Oddly though Senators with less intel access, like McCain, drew the right conclusions and so did most serious commentators on the region.

And the intelligence community stated that it was a terrorist attack by Al Qaeda, not a protest\murderous movie review.

Two days after the deadly Libya terror attack, representatives of the FBI and National Counterterrorism Center gave Capitol Hill briefings in which they said the evidence supported an Al Qaeda or Al Qaeda-affiliated attack, Fox News has learned.

The description of the attack by those in the Sept. 13 briefings stands in stark contrast to the now controversial briefing on Capitol Hill by CIA Director David Petraeus the following day — and raises even more questions about why Petraeus described the attack as tied to a demonstration.

The Sept. 13 assessment was based on intercepts that included individuals, believed to have participated in the attack, who were celebratory — as well as a claim of responsibility.

FBI and NCTC also briefed that there were a series of Al Qaeda training camps just outside of Benghazi, where the attack occurred and resulted in the deaths of four Americans. The area was described as a hotbed for the militant Ansar al-Sharia as well as Al Qaeda in North Africa.

The intelligence community did not mislead Obama by providing bad intel, as the FOX News story documents it was the Obama Administration that appeared to have pressured top officials like Petraeus into adopting a different narrative.

It takes no great intelligence to know that a large scale assault conducted with heavy weapons is not a spontaneous event. But the Administration wanted to present a picture of offended Muslims to hide the truth that Al Qaeda was on the rampage and that Obama’s policies had made the rampage possible.

    Elections have sometimes horrible consequences. This last presidential one gave us a load of treasonous people. Can't wait to throw them all out.

    There were people that poo-poohed the idea that it was a proper al quaida terrorist attack, and they stubbornly refused to listen to anyone who insisted that it was, going to the lengths to call them "crazy". These people are going to look like quite the a**holes pretty soon.

    This revelation is all over the news and the truth is out. I am still bewildered as to why the mainstream media is still rooting for obama after this fiasco.

    In 2008 US voters elected a liar, a fraudster, and an interloper. A 3,000 hour police investigation concluded "with 100% certainty" that Obama got the job using fake ID. He's lied so many times there simply isn't the space here to accomodate the list. US voters were set up to vote Obama just like German voters were set up to vote Hitler. Deceit, manipulation, a compliant, conspiratorial media, propaganda, and race-baiting. White Americans voted for Obama to prove they weren't racist. Negros voted for Obama to prove they were racist. Had Hilary won the Demo endorsement for president people would have voted for her to prove they believed in 'gender equity'. Over the past few decades populations in Western countries have been subjected to incredible propaganda, softening them up for the takedown. Obama represents the zenith of a move to infiltrate and usurp Western democracies by lefties. Hopefully American voters are intelligent enough to realize they've been had and get rid of the tyrant while they still have a country left.

      yeah. All that, plus the fact that the only "bad intel" was the lack of collective I.Q. among the various members of the current Administration.

      Right on

    The Behghazi story has been "disappeared" from the lib stream media….buried, purged…no longer discussed……..un freakin believable.

    • uptick1

      Not forgotten-the liberal media has been silent all along-the American people know what to do on nov 6th-vote him out or else in less than a year we all will be dead by the hands of Iran with their Spy friend in charge..

      A MSM channel did say Sandy was a boost for Obama. They said it was because of the chance to appear presidential, but we all know it was the chance to bury WH scandals.

    When I think of the horrible deaths of these four Americans and most of all Chris Stevens, it is all I can do to keep from crying. I look t thier photographs and think…that is someone's father, brother, uncle, son..and so on. How could their importance in all of this be dismissed to save the political careers of a bunch of treasonous lying people? America, we have to wake up now and realize that this is so many issues..a safety of our people in foreign countries issue, a self preservation of Democrats and idealogues that think like BO issue and so much more! Save our country now! Get these guys out of Washington and let them go back to their community organizing job!


    Tunisia, the birth place of the Arab Spring, has four Islamic groups, with connections to Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. Under their majority control basic human rights are being crushed.

    See no jihadists,hear no jihadists,speak about no jihadists.

    Okay. Nothing really new in there.

    The Benghazi story so clearly demonstrates the problem with failed leadership. If only the President's performance could be scrutinized as if he were in the military. A Fitness Report for his tour of duty. It would clearly demonstrate whether he should be "promoted" into a second term. For those undecided voters, here's President Obama's FitRep.
