Obama Official Admits Libyan Violence was Terrorist Attack

By GOPUSA Staff

Denial after denial after denial. No... of course the killing of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others wasn't a terrorist attack. That was the line. The violence was "spontaneous," and it was due to a YouTube video. That's what Obama and Clinton and other administration officials said. Now, someone is singing different tune.

In testimony before the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Matt Olsen, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center, acknowledged that the attack was certainly the work of terrorists.

"I would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy," Matt Olsen, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center, said Wednesday at a hearing of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, in response to questioning from Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-CT) about the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

As for who was responsible, Olsen said it appears there were attackers from a number of different militant groups that operate in and around Benghazi, and said there are already signs of al Qaeda involvement.

"We are looking at indications that individuals involved in the attack may have had connections to al Qaeda or al Qaeda's affiliates; in particular, al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb," he said.

ForeignPolicy.com also reports that Olsen's tesitmony refutes what White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said earlier in the day:

His statements go further than those of the White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, who said last week that the protests in Cairo and Benghazi were a reaction to the video and not a pre-planned attack. Today, Carney didn't repeat the assertion that the video was solely to blame, but he said again that there is no evidence the Benghazi attack was pre-planned.

What's stunning is the level to which Barack Obama, his team, and the media all stood by the assertion that the killings were just some random, spontaneous act by people hyped up over a video. Obama even dispatched his U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to hit all the talk shows and say the exact same line, which the media were happy to repeat: This was not a terrorist attack, but simply angry people who went too far.

As more information is learned, it appears that a former Gitmo detainee is behind the attacks.

US intelligence officials believe a former Guantanamo Bay inmate with ties to Al-Qaeda is "likely" to have organised the attack which killed the American ambassador to Libya last week, according to new reports.

The former inmate, Sufyan Ben Qumu, is one of the leaders of Ansar al-Sharia, a Libyan militant Islamist group with a high-profile presence in the east of the country that has already been identified by local officials as involved in the attack on the consulate in Benghazi in which Chris Stevens died.

Ben Qumu was released from Guantanamo Bay in 2007 by President George W. Bush and returned to Libya. At the time, negotiations were under way led by Col Muammar Gadaffi's son, Saif al-Islam, to grant an amnesty to imprisoned Islamists, mostly members of a group called the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.

Now we see what happens when terrorists are released and told, "Ok... you be good now." It doesn't happen! And Barack Obama is in negotiations to release the World Trade Center bomber? America cannot cave in to the demands or terrorists. Only one thing comes out of it... more terror.

      Have you considered the probability that Ambassador Stevens was “setup” by Obama’s reelection campaign to become a hostage so that the “warrior President” could rescue him by sending in a Navy Seal team a week before the election. Ambassador Stevens had breakfast with a friend on 9/11 and told him he was concerned about “security” at the consulate.” Later that day one of his security detail members tweeted a message that they might all be killed. This proves that they had never been told about the planned attack which our intelligence service had known about for three days before 9/11. To send these brave Americans into “harm’s way” without any knowledge or protection from the peril they faced had to fulfill some kind of administration objective. Getting Obama reelected would be sufficient for his campaign team.

    Poor Jay Carney, he is such a misfit. Hes like the nerd in school with tape on his glasses. He is never on the right page. I guess they dont trust him like they did Gibbs,probably with reason. But the media even fox is still talking as if the video was at fault. Get off it.Anyone can tell it was planned and they should be found and executed. This guy will probably walk back his statements soon.

      If this environmentally deranged President had started to Build the Keystone pipeline four years ago we would not need any middle east oil and we could pack up and leave these Islamists to do what they do best, which is to go back to killing each other. Now there’s a plan. Is trillions for defense of the Saudi Oil fields, and tens of thousands of American lives worth cutting air quality by 0,0000001%. This one is a no brainer.

      Carney is simply a sock puppet who is trotted out to deflect any and all criticism of the administration. They always leave the escape hatch unlocked with phrases such as “We think….”, “Our sources indicate….”, “Information we’ve received tell us….”, etc.. They are smart enough to lie in such a way that the MSM will accept what is offered as gospel, then await the next exciting WH press conference. If it wasn’t for the few conservative anchors like Hannity and Limbaugh, along with commentators like Malkin, Eberlie, Ingram and others, the country would have to exist on the left-wing, liberal disinformation offered by politicians who only want to see the downfall of our nation. America, thanks to the Tea Party, began to awaken from her slumber two years ago and took back the House. Now, she is fully awake and aware of the danger she faces and hopefully, will complete the “House-Cleaning” on November 6.

    I thought Obama was the Muslim educated President who would make East meet West, in Socialist harmony ad infinitum??????,,,,,,yet still never the twain shall EVER meet. Nor can they, when the Blessings of free speech and individual Liberty meet the men who offer only the submission of foot on neck and sword on throat, to either convert or die. THIS IS ONLY WHAT THEY OFFER YOU. This President is the epitome of what happens when American sanity is mixed with an insane political ideology disguised as a religion called Islam. If this President spent less time making excuses for the Islamists and quit trying to dupe the American public that Islam means peace instead of SUBMISSION, our foreign policy might start to gain credibility. Time and time again he sides with the Muslims blaming and giving precidence of this movie over an American’s rights to free speech. Next he will insist on swearing upon a Koran on his second oath of officeand distain the Bible, then we will know his true intentions and his true color. Wake up America and end this madness, November 6th.

      Think about it…remember Rodney King? Remember all the “hyped up” rioters who burned buildings, businesses, etc., JUST LIKE THE LIKE-MINDED MURDEROUS MOBS IN THE MIDDLE EAST? And the rioters were spurred on by the MSM playing the beating of Rodney King over and over and over again on national TV. As a nation, we set a precedent by allowing the excuse that these rioting mobs had some kind of LEGITIMATE beef to excuse their barbaric behavior! Not only did we sanction this kind of jungle mentality by not prosecuting the criminals involved in the riots, but we REWARDED Mr. King by giving him millions of dollars in “reparation”. Then, to further scandalize, the police officers were prosecuted for King’s beating. So, why are we shocked when murderous mobs get upset with a video they find offensive? Of course I never believed that for a nanosecond, but this is what has been spun by the BO faithful. Unless we take back the country, we can expect more of the same–and it will happen on American soil again…that is a given.

    So, they turned loose an al Qaeda biggie and now he is leading raids against our embassies.

    Now, they are talking about sending The Blind Sheik home.
    Why? Is there something even bigger that needs to be attacked?

    It has begun. The massive effort by the Muslims to take over the world. They think they already have their man in place in America and he will back them in their efforts.

    Has he not bought thousands of guillotines? Why? what do you use them for? Better get worried….or prepare to die if you resist his and their One World Government plot!

      Valerie Jarret, Obummers second wife gets 3 secret service agents for 24 hour protection. Ambassador Stevens had no one for his protection! All removed because of budget cuts!

      The Navy Seals that tried to protect him were there on their own will. Disgusting!

      Well Bettye, I will have to say, that I have lived overseas for a few years now, actually own a diving center in Egypt, and honestly, I don’t recognize my country and mentality of the people any more at all. It is definitely not the same. You should notice the contrast after being away for a while! Is it ever more clear!

    Very little of what we know about Obama is true and he has had great success in getting the American public to swallow it. So it comes as no surprise he would sell this attack upon an American embassy as the ludicrous result of a mob being pissed off with a video, despite abundant evidence to the contrary.

    Organization structure is up for grabs in the middle east and if Obama continues to be lost in his ideological fog we most likely are in for a violent storm.

      “There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.” He has the public believing him and what he says because there is next to none, not one, true journalistic news media who was or is willing to investigate this liar. As the MRC has shown, you can’t believe the liberal media. Their signs all over the latest political party convention locations, have pointed that out. The Liberal news people are in Obama’s pocket. Polls have shown that news reporters vote 80-90% Democrat.

    Arabs want us out of the region, and no one mentions the obstinate refusal to build the Keystone pipeline, I don’t get it. This would help put us well on our way towards energy independence and lack of reliance on the Arab world.
    It should be in capital letters on the front page of the New York Times, fat chance, but it should.
