So, this Benghazi cover up. What yall think about it? Comes out, that the Obama admin knew within hours there was possible Al Qaeda involvement. Yet 4 days later, John Carney and Susan Rice are out there lying to the American public.

U.S. had early indications Libya attack tied to organized militants | Reuters

WASHINGTON Oct 2 (Reuters) - Within hours of last month's attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, President Barack Obama's administration received about a dozen intelligence reports suggesting militants connected to al Qaeda were involved, three government sources said.

Despite these reports, in public statements and private meetings, top U.S. officials spent nearly two weeks highlighting intelligence suggesting that the attacks were spontaneous protests against an anti-Muslim film, while playing down the involvement of organized militant groups.

It was not until last Friday that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's office issued an unusual public statement, which described how the picture that intelligence agencies presented to U.S. policymakers had "evolved" into an acknowledgement that the attacks were "deliberate and organized" and "carried out by extremists."
Let's not forget that the US personnel in Libya made repeated requests for security upgrades, and were denied, even though there were numerous incidents in the months leading up to 9/11. So much so, the British pulled all of their people from the country.

Very dick'ish of the White House with all of this.
