Well, this is a bombshell.

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

Eric Stahl, who recently retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force, served as commander and pilot of the C-17 aircraft that was used to transport the corpses of the four casualties from the Benghazi attacks – then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods – as well as the assault’s survivors from Tripoli to the safety of an American military base in Ramstein, Germany.

In an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Special Report,” Stahl said members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff who raced to the scene of the attacks were “confused” by the administration’s repeated implication of the video as a trigger for the attacks, because “they knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.”

As you might have already guessed, Hillary Clinton’s Accountability Review Board never interviewed Stahl at all. Nor did it interview another official, quoted in the Fox story backing Stahl’s assertion up.

In addition to disclosing that the terrorists were heard using U.S. phone to ring up their superiors during the attack, Stahl says that his crew could have gotten to Benghazi in time to rescue the Americans under siege there.

All this is another piece on the pile of evidence that the Obama administration knew that Benghazi was a terrorist attack from very early on, and that they used the video excuse to create enough confusion — or give its supporters something to spin — long enough to get past the election. And, assault the First Amendment along the way.

The choice to use the video has Barack Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s fingerprints all over it. The Select Committee will have its work cut out for it, to try getting the truth out of those two.

So the story is that noble Obama was well on the way to undoing the evil work of Bush when the specter of Islamophobia reared its head from the heart of America and youtubed our men to death. Sad brave Obama. Can he get a second Nobel and maybe give one to the Middle East for inventing sand and 33 rpm records?

And the Generals remain silent ! Where are the heroes?
Where the patriots? The George Patton's and
Douglas MacArthur's? The Military Brass need to
Step up and speak out against this dirtbag Obama
administration for playing politics while Ambassador Stevens
And three other Americans were murdered. Remaining
Silent in the face of this national outrage is dishonorable
And unworthy of military leaders entrusted with America's
Defense.

This is very strange. It was an organized, planned attack. Why would they use captured phones? I'm sure they had their own. They certainly couldn't have anticipated finding them.

To whom were those phones assigned? Did they perchance have State Department phones before the attack? Was this, as has been alleged, a snatch job to exchange for the Blind Sheikh?

Why wouldn't they have State Dept phones. After all . the Islamists got their orders from the State Dept or the Admin.

"...Hillary Clinton’s Accountability Review Board never interviewed Stahl at all."

I can't wait until Gowdy interviews her once the full body of evidence is gathered. Can't wait to hear him raise his voice at this lying hag.

Eric Stahl also says that in the evacuation of some 33 American Benghazi personnel in the aftermath of 9/11/12, he asked some of these individuals if they had any clue about this "video/spontaneous demonstration" story and none of them did, just shrugged their shoulders. Their diplomatic mission had just been assaulted with RPG's and mortars, a full blown attack.

These individuals, at least allegedly, were barred from speaking after they arrived back in the US, around 9/13.

Sadly, very little will happen because of this. Hillary is in book tour mode, and her fans at the MSM are only interested in knowing if Hillary has picked out any baby furniture for her grandchild's nursery. And Obama? they never ask him anything.

The tragedy of Benghazi is only overshadowed by Obama's continuing to trash
the Constitution. If the House of Representatives controls the money, how can
Obama spend without limitation? When do his underlings revolt, arrest him and call for a traitor's end to his power over them?

I'm beginning to think that the president and Clinton knew the attack would take place, and that they had plans to exchange Stevens for jihadis in Gitmo and/or civilian prisons.

Is there anything in Hillary's now deeply discounted book about Stevens and the others there working to reclaim stingers from the "rebels" she supplied to overthrow Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi?
