The film blamed for the riots: far less relevant to the attacks than the date on which they occurred.
A senior security official says the attack that killed four Americans in Libya, including the U.S. ambassador, was an organized two-part operation by heavily armed militants that included a precisely timed raid on a supposedly secret safe house just as Libyan and U.S. security forces were arriving to rescue evacuated consulate staff.
Wanis al-Sharef, eastern Libya’s deputy interior minister, said on Thursday the attacks were suspected to have been timed to mark the 9/11 anniversary and that the militants used civilians protesting an anti-Islam film as cover for their action.
This confirmation puts the murder, and reported rape, of Ambassador Christopher Stevens into the category of assassination.
The Obama administration’s handling of this has played directly into the terrorists’ hands, humiliating the U.S. on the anniversary of the deadliest terror attack ever perpetrated on our soil. Instead of focusing on the timing and purpose of the attacks, the administration keeps mentioning the film.
It’s clear that the film is a pretext, and may even be another taqiyya scam similar to the Danish cartoon campaign.
The usual suspects are waging war on the United States, and our president either doesn’t realize it or is being dishonest about what is really going on.
