The head of the U.S. military’s Africa Command says some of those who attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya were linked to al-Qaida’s North Africa arm.
Gen. Carter Ham told reporters in Paris on Wednesday, “clearly some of these individuals have some linkages” to al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM.
However he said the attack was not necessarily “an AQIM-planned or organized or led activity.”
So al-Qaida was involved but not necessarily part of the planning. Thanks for clearing that up, General.
We’re now 65 days out since the terror attack and we know intimate details more about the lives of Paula Broadwell and Jill Kelley than we do about what went down in Benghazi. Heckuva job, lamestream media!
