U.S. Intelligence: Libya attack was coordinated

In my post earlier today, “Muslims rampage and kill a U.S. ambassador over this movie?,” I questioned whether yesterday’s Muslim attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo, Egypt, and the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and the killing of U.S. ambassador to Libya  J. Christopher Stevens and three embassy staff, can really be attributed to a movie about Muhammad.

Rep. Mike Rogers

Now, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Michigan) confirms that the movie is just a cover. He told CBS News that a random mob isn’t behind the attack.

Elahe Izadi of National Journal writes that Congressman Rogers said: “This was a coordinated attack, more of a commando-style event. It had both coordinated fire — direct fire and indirect fire. There appeared to be military maneuvers approaching the facility.” Rogers also said that the attack was carried out by “an external group we believe has at least extremist ties, maybe al Qaeda ties.”

Citing Pentagon sources, this evening’s CBS Evening News calls the attacks not random mob events, but “well armed”, well-coordinated “terrorist” attacks timed for the anniversary of 9/11.

Just like those “students” who seized our embassy in Tehran in ’79.

Okay, I have reached the proverbial “Information Overload” level, so I am going to go do some flying in FS 2004.

Maybe I’ll crash into the side of a mountain – repeatedly.

Seriously, I haven’t been this distraught over my country since 9/11.

At least back then we were still America.

Well, kinda sort of, anyway.

See y’all tomorrow.

My heart is breaking for our people who were murdered by these monsters. With or without the support of the white house, we will be avenged.

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this excellent post, for exposing the real conspiracy here, the real truth that these attacks were coordinated and planned for the anniversary of 9/11. Such horrible crimes, murder and torture!
