A most timely reminder on the heels of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton having had the unadulterated gall to declare during her testimony before the Benghazi Select Committee (Thursday Oct 22, 2015) I believe to this day the video [The Innocence of Muslims] played a role in the Benghazi attack.
We know the video is not to blame for the 9/11/12 attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi. We also know that the Benghazi attack was NOT a spontaneous combustion, as Obamas UN Ambassador Susan Rice claimed September 16, 2012 on FIVE Sunday morning talk shows, FIVE days after the attack, which just so happened to not so coincidentally occur on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11/01 islamic jihad terror attacks.
On that day four Americans were murdered on sovereign U.S. territory in an act of war, and Barack shoot first, aim later Obama was concerned with what? His re-election. And the scandal ridden Hillary Clinton was all to happy to lend a helping hand by also taking part in the video blame game, and apparently still is according to her exasperating Benghazi hearing declaration.
If an obscure online video trailer played a part in the Benghazi attack, then an al-Qaeda video released on September 11, 2012 inciting muslims to kill crusaders should have been the front runner in the video incitement blame game.
On 9/11/12 Osama bin Ladens successor al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri released a video statement in which he confirmed the death of senior al-Qaeda member Abu Yahya al-Libi (Libyan by birth). al-Zawahiri followed the confirmation with His [Abu Yahya al-Libi] blood is calling, urging and inciting you to fight and kill the crusaders.
As CNN reported on September 12, 2012 the day after the Benghazi attack:
A pro-al Qaeda group responsible for a previous armed assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi is the chief suspect in Tuesdays [9/11/12] attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya, sources tracking militant Islamist groups in eastern Libya say.
They also note that the attack immediately followed a call from al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri for revenge for the death in June  of Abu Yahya al-Libi, a senior Libyan member of the terror group.
The group suspected to be behind the assault the Imprisoned Omar Abdul Rahman Brigades first surfaced in May , when it claimed responsibility for an attack on the International Red Cross office in Benghazi. The following month the group claimed responsibility for detonating an explosive device outside the U.S. Consulate [in Benghazi], and later released a video of that attack
Benotman, who had earlier warned of the likelihood of renewed attacks against U.S. interest in Libya, said the Omar Abdul Rahman Brigades is a prime suspect in the Benghazi attack Tuesday [9/11/12]. He believes it is likely the deadly attack was also linked to a video statement released by al-Zawahiri on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
In the video, al-Zawahiri confirmed the death of al-Libi a prominent member of the al Qaeda-linked group adding: His blood is calling, urging and inciting you to fight and kill the crusaders.
The video released by the Brigades in June showed nighttime explosions around the consulate, interlaced with footage of Osama bin Laden and al-Zawahiri, along with images from the 9/11 attacks. At the time the Brigades claimed it had launched the attack in response to the first reports of al-Libis death in a drone strike in the tribal areas of Pakistan.
Notably, the Brigades said the June 5 attack was also timed to coincide with preparations for the arrival of a senior U.S. State Department official.
The AP also reported on the al-Zawahri video:
CAIRO (AP) The leader of al-Qaida confirmed the death of the groups second-in-command, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in northwestern Pakistan in June.
In a video posted late Monday [Sept. 10-11 2012] on militant websites, al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri described his late lieutenant Abu Yahya al-Libi as a lion of jihad and knowledge.
The killing of al-Libi, who was Libyan by birth, was the biggest setback to al-Qaida since the death of Osama bin Laden.
Al-Zawahri also urged Libyans al-Libi was born in the north African country to attack Americans to avenge the late militants death, saying his blood is calling, urging and inciting you to fight and kill the Crusaders.
How did the Obama Regime overlook Al-Zawahris 9/11 anniversary jihad inciting video statement; [Abu Yahya al-Libis] blood is calling, urging and inciting you to fight and kill the crusaders BUT were somehow aware of the Pastor Jon Courson video God versus Allah, a video they first planned to falsely pin the Benghazi jihad blame on before eventually settling on yet another obscure video the now infamous Nakoula Basseleys (aka Sam Bacile) The Innocence of Muslims (see image below).
Why is INCITING you to fight and KILL the crusaders not incitement, yet an obscure trailer mocking mohammed is??
Why would Obama go out of his way to scapegoat the later instead of focusing on the former??
Lets see, sweeping a premeditated 9/11 anniversary al-Qaeda jihad attack under the rug, an attack by a decimated al-Qaeda that took place on his watch, an attack that resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans while he was running for reelection and appeasing Islam by targeting free speech.
For Obama, that is a win-win.
And Hillary? We may never get to the bottom of slippery Hillarys contemptible perjurious part in the Benghazi coverup and all that led up to it.
But we have to at least try.
