Eight Days Later Obama Official Admits Benghazi Was a Terrorist Attack

Not that Obama’s Palace Guard Media will bother noticing.

The Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was in fact “a terrorist attack” and the U.S. government has indications that members of al Qaeda were directly involved, a top Obama administration official said Wednesday morning.

“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.

Now if they’ll just admit they were warned in advance, which everyone already knows. Someone should let that stooge Jay Carney know.

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.

    The difference, of course, is that this statement was made to a congressional committee hearing where there are penalties for not telling the truth.

    good point about the venue. And it’s yet another thing that the media (Democrat operatives with bylines) won’t report.
