Surprise, Surprise: Benghazi Suspects Tied to al Qaeda

Last year leading up to the election, President Obama said Al Qaeda was on the run and had been decimated. Obama and his talking head, now National Security Advisor Susan Rice, went on five different Sunday talk shows and told us the attack in Benghazi was a spontaneous reaction to a video. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton offered apologies to the Muslim world and even spent US taxpayer dollars to create a television commercial airing in the Islamic world apologizing for the crude video.

But according to reports from Fox News’ Catherine Herridge, it seems several of the Benghazi attackers had ties to the supposedly decimated senior Al Qaeda leadership and — surprise, surprise — the attack was not at all spontaneous.

Head of the House Intelligence Committee, Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., told Herridge ties to Al Qaeda senior leadership, also known as Al Qaeda core, are now established. Herridge also reports that investigators are finding “more and more ties — not just to Al Qaeda’s branch in North Africa … but Al Qaeda senior leadership in Pakistan.”

As far as the “spontaneity” of it all, Chairman Rogers has laid out a timeline for the attack, which suggests there were months of advance planning.

No true American will ever forget Hillary Clinton’s emotional outburst before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, regarding whether the American deaths were a result of a protest or “because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d go kill some Americans “ as she shouted, “what difference at this point does it make?”

The difference, ma’am, is that much more disturbing information is being uncovered about the nature of the Benghazi attack and the individuals involved where four Americans were abandoned to die.

The liberal left never wants to pin the blame on our Commander-in-Chief for anything, let alone going to sleep while American Ambasador Chris Stevens, State Department IT specialist Sean Smith, and two former US Navy SEALS Ty Woods and Glenn Doherty are under attack and subsequently killed. To me, it’s a high crime. It’s something I will not forget and will certainly never forgive those involved in the deception and the abandoning of those men. If it is a phony scandal, then why are they well and truly dead?
