New Papers Reveal Obama State Dept Knew Benghazi Attack Not Caused by Protests

( — State Department documents released through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by the government watchdog Judicial Watch reveal, contrary to Obama administration claims, the State Department knew as early as Sept. 12, 2012 that the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya was a “direct breaching attack.” It was not sparked “under the cover of a protest” or in response to an anti-Islamic YouTube video.

Commenting on one specific document, a Sept. 12, 2012 email summary of a conversation between then-Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy with congressional staffers, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, “This document removes any further doubt that the State Department and the Obama administration knew immediately after the assault on Benghazi that it was a well-orchestrated terrorist attack and not a ‘spontaneous demonstration’ over a ‘hateful video,’ as the Obama administration repeatedly claimed.”

“These documents show that the Benghazi scandal is not over … not by a long shot,” said Fitton.   MORE

  1. Yeah, but Trump insults the media and doesn’t kiss their ass begging them to like him.

    So, they’ve got to break him.

  2. They press will place this news nugget on page 45, lower left column with not headline.

    Truth and honesty of the press has been missing for over 8 years.

  3. This is the biggest lie told by the Obama and the media. Dwarves anything Nixon did or Trump has gone or will do. Yet crickets chirp in media hallways. They wonder why nobody respects the press. Exhibit A is at their feet.

  4. I think they knew BEFORE 9/12 or certainly as they watched it unfold in real time.

    The “3AM phone call” ad Hil ran to highlight her command in leadership experience elevated her to CIC status, should’ve been replayed over & over to point out Benghazi began @ 3PM EST and she failed to pick up.

  5. So…. does this mean that the man they arrested for the film they claim caused the incident was illegally detained and maliciously prosecuted? Will his law suit be paid for by the taxpayers or the actors? Just wondering….
