YET, AS LATE AS YESTERDAY, IN HIS MOST PATHETIC "SPEECH" AT THE UNITED NATIONS (MORE LIKE A LECTURE!! ANOTHER!!), THIS LIAR REFERRED TO THE VIDEO AS THE CAUSE FOR THE 9/11 ATTACK ON THE CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI!!
It needs be said that it seems the Obama Administration has done a great job of disseminating the existence of this video of which existence NO ONE knew nor had seen prior to the American Consulate attack!
Just as it fueled the "rage" through the endlessly repeated slogan:
Care to say it again, Joe Biden??
Nonetheless, it took until late last week for the White House and the administration to formally acknowledge that the Benghazi assault was a terrorist attack. On Sunday, Obama adviser Robert Gibbs explained the evolving narrative as a function of new information coming in quickly on the attacks. "We learned more information every single day about what happened,” Gibbs said on Fox News. “Nobody wants to get to the bottom of this faster than we do.”
The intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast did so anonymously because they weren’t authorized to speak to the press. They said U.S. intelligence agencies developed leads on four of the participants of the attacks within 24 hours of the fire fight that took place mainly at an annex near the Benghazi consulate. For one of those individuals, the U.S. agencies were able to find his location after his use of social media. “We had two kinds of intelligence on one guy,” this official said. “We believe we had enough to target him.”
A spokesman for the National Security Council declined to comment for the story. But another U.S. intelligence official said, “I can’t get into specific numbers but soon after the attack we had a pretty good bead on some individuals involved in the attack.”
It’s unclear whether any of these suspected attackers have been targeted or arrested, and intelligence experts caution that these are still early days in a complex investigation.
The question of what the White House knew, and when they knew it, will be of keen interest to members of Congress in the election year. Last Thursday, the Obama administration formally briefed House and Senate members on the attack. Those briefings however failed to satisfy many members, particularly Republicans. “That is the most useless, worthless briefing I have attended in a long time,” Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican, was quoted as saying.
“There was very good information on this in the first 24 hours. These guys have a return address.”
