Petraeus Says He Knew Almost Immediately Al Qaida Group Involved in Benghazi Attack

Former CIA Director David Petraeus testified before Congress today that he knew "almost immediately" that the attack in Benghazi on the U.S. mission was a terrorist attack and that those involved, a group called Ansar al-Sharia, were linked to al Qaida.

He also testified that the CIA-prepared talking points given to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice were edited by someone in the Administration to downplay any links to terrorism.

According to CNN, Petraeus knew that the attack was terrorism, but the CIA also received about 20 intelligence reports that blamed the attack on an anti-Islam YouTube video. Petraeus had those reports disproved, but only after he testified previously on Oct. 14, giving the impression that the video, not terrorism, was to blame.

Rep. Peter King, who heard Petraeus' testimony this morning, told the media that Petraeus said he did not know who edited the original talking points given to Rice, but that the remarks went through and "inter-agency process."

Sens. Lindsey Graham, John McCain and others have suggested that Rice was part of the political cover-up of Benghazi prior to the election. But President Obama defended her at his press conference Wednesday, saying that anyone who has a problem with Rice has a problem with him.

The defensive "non-answer" of the president suggests that there is something being hidden, and it does little to dissuade the notion that Rice is in on it. Among her remarks to the media about Benghazi, Rice told Jake Tapper:

"Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous — not a premeditated — response to what had transpired in Cairo. In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated.

"We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to — or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo. And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons, weapons that as you know in — in the wake of the revolution in Libya are — are quite common and accessible. And it then evolved from there."

 Then on CBS' "Face the Nation" program:

MS. RICE:  So we’ll want to see the results of that [FBI] investigation to draw any definitive conclusions. But based on the best information we have to date, what our assessment is as of the present is in fact what began spontaneously in Benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo where, of course, as you know, there was a violent protest outside of our embassy– –sparked by this hateful video. But soon after that spontaneous protest began outside of our consulate in Benghazi, we believe that it looks like extremist elements, individuals, joined in that– in that effort with heavy weapons of the sort that are, unfortunately, readily now available in Libya post-revolution. And that it spun from there into something much, much more violent.

BOB SCHIEFFER: But you do not agree with him that this was something that had been plotted out several months ago?

MS. RICE: We do not– we do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned.

MR. SCHIEFFER: Do you agree or disagree with [the previous guest, the president of Libya’s general national congress] that al Qaeda had some part in this?

MS. RICE:  Well, we’ll have to find out that out. I mean I think it’s clear that there were extremist elements that joined in and escalated the violence. Whether they were al Qaeda affiliates, whether they were Libyan-based extremists or al Qaeda itself I think is one of the things we’ll have to determine.

Petraeus has been in the news of late because of the affair that led to his resignation last week. As information about the FBI's investigation into the affair has come out, it seems increasingly likely that the entire affair was covered up and not aired until after the election.

That begs the question of whether the affair was used to threaten Petraeus into testifying previously that the YouTube video, not terrorism was to blame. If so, then it appears Petraeus was cut loose the moment he was no longer useful.

President Obama said a few days ago said he gave orders to ensure the safety of Americans in Benghazi. Pretending for the moment that's so, then who didn't follow or relay those orders?

Could it be the same person who redacted the CIA talking points before giving them to Rice?

And here's a thought: Tempting as it is to point the finger at Obama for Benghazi, there is another person who has been alleged to be the "real" power at the White House, who is Iranian-American and has been implicated in aborting several attempts to get Osama bin Laden before he was successfully killed. That person is Valerie Jarrett.

Ansar al-Sharia in Yemen is a tool of Iran. It seems likely the Libya wing would be also. Jarrett was rumored about the time of Benghazi to be in secret talks with the Iranian government about ending its nuclear weapons program.

Is it possible that Jarrett might have been behind U.S. forces being told to stand down in Benghazi, then edited the CIA remarks, possibly for the sake of whatever goals her talks had?

Jarrett is said to have guided the careers of both Obamas. Could the president be covering for his benefactor?



  • Screeminmeeme

    Jarrett could very well be behind it all as Obama hasshown an inexplicable reliance and dependence on her advice before making major decisions. Having been born and raised in Iran, she likely has political ties and allegiance to the area.

    The whole Bengazi thing is frustrating and a pile of questions remain unanswered.

    1. Why wasn't the consulate at Bengazi not structurally reinforced according to code?

    2. Why wasn't more security provided when the ambassador and others were requesting it months before the attack when it was clear that Al Quaeda was in the area and even had attacked the consulate twice, the British ambassador and the Red Cross? Why was the Security Force withdrawn instead of increased? Even on the day of the attack the ambassador was requesting more security but was ignored.

    3. Why didn't the White House, CIA, and DOD know enough to anticipate an Al Quaeda attack on the 911 anniversary and have our military in the region standing by in case of attack?

    4. Why wasn't help sent when news of the attack got out? Who wanted to send help and who refused to?

    5. Petraeus said that the CIA knew that it was a planned terrorist attack within hours of it happening. The president said in the second debate that HE knew that it was a terrorist attack the day after and had said so in a press conference.

    Why then, for 2+ weeks after did he continue to say the reason for the attack was not a terrorist one but was due to a spontaneous gathering protesting a video? Why lie?

    6. Why then did Obama send out Susan Rice....who HE said had ''no knowledge about Bengazi'' 5 TV shows to say that the attack was due to a video?

    7. Why wasn't Petraeus or Hillary on the hot seat of those Sunday shows answering the questions about Bengazi?

    8. Why did Obama throw Susan Rice under the bus and then act outraged that people are calling her to account for her testimony?

    9 Why did Obama say that ''now that the election is over, maybe we can get to the truth"? Wasn't the truth accessible BEFORE the election? Of course...and that's why the suppression of the truth was necessary.

    People are saying that Obama's negligent behavior was due to his not wanting people to know what a failure his Middle East policy is.....which makes no sense.

    Loyal to the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama aided and abetted the enemy by not reinforcing the building, not providing security, not answering calls for help, thus making the ambassador, his staff, and others sitting ducks for his bloody Islamic brothers.

    And then, after the fact, Obama and Hillary spent $70,000 on a televised message to the Middle East apologizing for the video instead of defending free speech. Obama's insistence that the reason for the attack was an offensive video gave the barbarians an EXCUSE for their attack and was a warning for all people to BEWARE that NO ONE who insults Islam can escape violence. He assented to their pathetic explanation for committing murder.

    The Bengazi episode successfully drove the CIA out of that region of Libya and enabled Al Quaeda to gain a greater foothold.

    Only the blind can't see Obama's culpability in the deaths of four Americans.

      Why did USSCJustice Ginzberg rush to Egypt to tell them NOT to copy our Constitution for their new one, because she said ours was Old and No Longer Relevant. Funny how a Jew would go to Egypt which is trying to become a democracy after BRAVELY kicking out a monster tyrant, and would ding our Constitution that is based on Christian Principles. Could THAT be the reason? Who made her the messenger? Why has not one Senator slammed her with a Hearing for breaking her Oath of Office to uphold and defend the Constitution of the USA? There are too many of her ilk with too much power in our government, that's why.

        Wow! I never knew that! But then Judas, also was a Jew, wasn't he? Just saying, what is, is...

        • Winston

          Judas was a Jew but so was is Jesus. The problem with Judas is that he was in complete rebellion against God...just as Ginzberg is. Most Jews are still in rebellion against God even after over 3000+ years...and most aren't religious at all but are atheists or agnostics. There's as many sects in Judahism as there are in Christianity.

        • victorbarney

          Agree with you but... "Jesus" is not even a Jewish name & can NOT be translated & or found in the Hebrew Books of the Law! In fact, "Jesus" came in the 1300's from a RCC Church Philiosopher named Petrus Galatinus or something, can't remember his spelling for sure. However: know that "Yahshua," meaning Yahweh(YHWH) means salvation is our Jewish born Savior. Hebrew is the ONLY spiritually inspired language(Zeph. 3:9, Acts 26:14, 1 COR. 4:6). Wonder why the whole "world" has been deceived? Look no further than Roman tradition....honoring the Greeks deities, who they had defeated. Just saying what history has written, even agreed to by Rome! Therefore WATCH! Prove all things as written through scientific deductionm not induction(2 Peter 1:20). Did I mention that "God" (Gawd") is the Babylonian Deity of Good luck? Or that "LORD" in HEBREW means "BAAL", whose worship is ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN. Or that the Hebrew Text "ALONE" was used to prove the New Covenant(1 Cor. 4:6, if you missed it?), Did I mention, ALL Scriptures can be read ONLY through scientific deduction(2 Peter 1:20), Or the the SABBATHS(weekly seventh Day & Annual Sabbaths) are the ONLY identifying 'SIGN" that "you" belong to our CREATOR(Exodus 31:13-18)? I could go on and on, but if your eyes have not been OPENED, it would be fruitless anyway. Again, just saying what's written...And I pray may "Yahweh," through his SON & OUR SAVIOR, "Yahshua," OPEN YOUR EYES! However,
          would definitely explain what I'm saying scientifically better than i...

      The so-called American consulate in Benghazi was not what it appeared to be, but was a CIA operation which had been getting arms and other weapons into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and Militia to overthrown the Libyan dictator...but they're likely the same ones used to murder the 4 Americans. A mid-east "Operation Fast & Furious".

  • RescueKyron

    Now wait a minute. Petraeus was relating his "feelings" and "impression" about the attack based on his experience in battle, not incorporating facts of the film. The FILM was the trigger, and found its target to INSTIGATE fights. The rest jumped in and like Rahm advised, "Never Let A Good Crisis Go To Waste" - looks like those guys were listening to Rahm. Maybe call it Backfire, hey Rahm? They didn't have to start it, just turned it into a Donnybrook. Sure, like the Rep. Dutch said after the closed doors with Petraeus, there were those ASSOCIATED WITH the al quaeda bunch seen in the crowds... BUT LISTEN, he didn't say they were the Leaders. He used the word ASSOCIATED WITH several times... relaying what Petraeus had said. Listen better.

    • Ray Downen

      It's obvious that the "film" had nothing whatever to do with the terrorist attack. Smoke screens may blur an image but can't usually totally prevent viewing it. It seems that RescueKyron listens to and believes Democrat propaganda.

      • RescueKyron

        Guarantee your second assumption is wrong, which calls into question the validity of your statement of obvious innocence of the film. A thought that no one has mentioned is why did Obbba and Clinton put an avowed homosexual as our rep in a territory that adheres to the religion condemning homosexuality? Why was Chris so ignorant of the Muslim principles that he would allow himself to be in what might make him a magnet for outbursts? Also why was the filmmaker allowed to hide his face from the American Public? Why was he protected from a trial regarding triggering uprisings in an area of the world rejecting tyrants and wanting freedom? Who helped that so-called Christian man to produce the anti-muslim film? How did he gather so much information and write the script, get the financing, hire the cast and crew, get it done, and who were his backers... he allegedly didn't have money, and we don't even know what his "regular" job was. S T I N K S. WE WANT TO KNOW FACTS ABOUT THE FILMMAKER not JUST the Muslim Uprising and Attack. Get your heads out of your sandboxes.

        • Ray Downen

          It's not clear why you think you have any right to investigate this film and its maker. The film was not in any way responsible for the terrorist attack in Benghazi. And it was not aired by the owner of the film in any Muslim country. We have a right in the U.S.A. to make a good film or a bad film, a family film or a dirty film and it's none of anybody's business except the maker and actors.

          YOU want to know facts that you're not entitled to in any way. WE want to know who prevented our armed forces from coming to the aid of victims of the terrorist attack. We have a right to know that. We're sure at this point that it was someone in the White House, but whether it was the President or someone acting for him is not clear. Whoever did the dirty deed needs to be blamed for it and be removed from a position where they might do a similar meanness again.

        • RescueKyron

          Films have purposes, filmmakers have responsibilities, Americans have the right to know any dang thing they want to know. What? Are you one of Obbba's History Hiding Lawyers?

Don't ever try to tell an American we are not entitled to know whatever the H*ll we wanna know. I'd guess other Americans here won't put much stock in your comments after blaring your opinion of American rights.

        • Ray Downen

          It's good to know that citizens of the U.S.A. can have no secrets. But I don't believe that for an instant. Obama hides much of his past and some of us would really like to know the things HE says we don't need to know. But why is it any of my business who made a film no one has ever seen and that sounds like no one would want to see? It's not my business. It's not your business. If you'e so eager to dig for secrets, PLEASE dig into the past of our Muslim president! Your theory that nothing can be hidden in our society doesn't hold water. It's really none of your business who made a film you've only heard about but have never seen.

    Either Obama or someone speaking FOR him prevented our armed forces from responding to the terrorist attack. It wasn't that they were not prepared and eager to respond. They were ordered to NOT respond. Someone issued that order more than once during the time the attack was taking place. Obama surely is responsible, and should be impeached as a result. Why hasn't he been impeached already?

          Not so sure that I understand, but will check your scripture references. Things are moving so fast now it is incredible and what is clear is that the white male is being feminized and destroyed. Always the white male has been the leader in all advancing civilizations. To destroy him isn't going to make the world a better place, and will bring slavery to all other groups when their own kind takes the leadership roles. Yes, God told us to study and learn from the Prophets and the New Testament and teachings of Christ that takes us through Revelation. Indeed the fight is on now more intensely than ever. Satan's time is close and is limited, and he knows it. So many of us are suffering. So many hurt and abused by our sick society. Take a look at an Orlando online news sometime and click the pix of those arrested. Human beings that have been and are being destroyed, most because of lives of not being loved as children or being abused, or being denied knowing they are as valuable to God as anyone else and they can make choices. Some have no capacity for making choices and should be helped by those claiming to be psychiatrists, mental health experts, Christians. It's going to get much worse for those who reject Christ. Christians will not accept letting Commies take over our country any more than they would vote for the Mormon to be President, or for Obbba.

There are those who want to sweep all information under rugs if it doesn't build their theories... like some who flurry and flame when demands are made for more information on the filmmaker, to show his face, be questioned on who assisted him with writing, producing, distributing the film and why he kept the script from the actors and only let them see the parts for their particular shoots so they couldn't put it together. That in itself proves to anyone in the business that this guy was up to no good and knew it and was using the American actors in ways that they would never have been part of. He is a liar and deceiver from the get go, causing actors to sue him for damaging their careers and endangering their lives. Guess he is now protected for a year somewhere under an alleged illegal behavior not connected to the film.

    I think Obama told Petraeus he had the goods on him and blackmailed him until after the election and then he was no longer needed for the game called re-election. Now that the affair is exposed Petraeus needs to stand in front of the cameras like a 4 star General and tell them to turn up their microphones and tell the world that he was told to shut up until after the election. He would regain a portion of his dignity, he didn't get to be a 4 star General by being a weenie. Then everyone needs to butt out of how he and his wife and family put their lives back together or not. That is none of our business but the coverup by Obama and his buddies is our business.

    There is something much more sinister coming out of this White House. Remember what Rahm Emmanuel said? "Never let a good crisis go to waste." For years now the Arab nations have been seeking laws in the U.N. to make it a crime for the deformation of Islam. Which means no 1st amendment. Remember: prior to Fast N' Furious, Every left leaning "news channel" and the White House were saying: "All the violence and the killings by the drug cartels was because of American guns going south of the border. We heard it almost daily. Then Agent Brian Terry is killed, and a whistle blower comes forth. We now know that all the illegal guns going south were set up by this administration. WHY? Remember what Eric Holder said: "We need to brainwash the American people against guns". This was a back door scheme to destroy the 2nd amendment. O'bama is a muslim. I don't care what anyone says. Look on youtube, on "Meet the Press" with George Stephanopolis. O'bama admits he is a muslim. Muslims are allowed to lie to infidels. Who are the infidels? All non-muslims. O'bama was furious over this movie trailer that came out in July-2012. NOT September. He needed an excuse. He needed a reason. He frabricated it: BENGAHZI. He allowed it to happen, as they pleaded for help; he's right they didn't deny assistance. HE JUST DIDN'T AUTHORIZE THE USE OF FORCE TO AID the Ambassador. Then we get the real reason. The U.N. Ambassador goes on five "Socialist" outlets and proclaims that it was a "sponteaneous mob action due to the video." Since when do mobs carry heavy weapons, mortars and RPG's? Then Jay Carney, Hiliary Clinton all parrot the same thing. Then 14 days later; The Liar N' Thief himself stands up before the U.N. and blames the video!!! He is a liar. They had audio/visual on the compound. He (O'bama) watched them die. Then went on a fund raiser.................He said at the U.N. that no one should be allowed slander the prophet or any religion. Then lowered his voice as if an afterthought, that "we" us here in the U.S. believe in free speach. This is the reason behind BENGAHZI. He wants laws passed against the deformation of Islam. He wants to gut the 1st and 2nd amendments. Make no mistake about it. Put it together and think it through. I'm not off base here

      Sorry Charlie. The attack on Muslims via the film was intended to trigger a reaction and it woikd. Neocons. They don't want the Arab countries to get rid of tyrants and work their way to democracies. The neocons are so riled about that happening they nudged the Jewess USSC Justice to tell the Egyptians not to use our Constitution as a template for theirs because ours is old and no longer relevant. She is an idiot and they laughed at her. The film got the reaction wanted and now they spread it around the world that the film did not agitate the people to riot. NOBODY in the world is believing the neocons about the false flag they are flying about the moooovie not initiating the riots. Your comment questioning the arabs carrying heavy duty weaponry is really ignorant. What do you think Americans are gearing up for? From news reports it sounds like Americans are not only the best individually armed citizens in the world, but are doubling down thanks to the commies infiltrating our government and country. OF COURSE the arabs have quick access to all kinds of weapons... and we did some training in the process. You gotta be kidding. THE FILMMAKER must be hauled into court and answer questions, and be publicly tried for instigating uprisings in a country involved in a reach for democracy and an are where are military is involved in Afghanistan, working with Pakistan and Iran... and this goof comes along and BRILLIANTLY tosses a highly explosive taunt at that area. WHERE IS YOUR HEAD, AMERICANS?

    Paula swears it was "ALL IN" So
    convinced she penned a book so titled.
    However, when the General was questioned he changed his story
    several times.

    let the impeachment hearings begin!

      We keep saying that, but everybody we try to coerce into doing so is either closed-minded, apathetic, too old, whatever.

      It would take something too big, be it physical or mental, to ignore, to get them to care.

    Obama lied as usual, but that is no surprise. Almost half the people will believe him no matter what he says. What is wrong with our people that a person like Obama can be re-elected?

  • Brian Lantz

    NOBODY CARES WHY it happened! EVERYONE IS COMPLETELY IGNORING HOW IT HAPPENED! The guy that refused aid during the attack is a traitor. He should be tried and executed!.... GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR A-HOLES!

    Only one office could have changed the report presented by Petreaus and we all know which office that was WW.

    It was terrorism by Obummer's good friends the Muslim Brotherhood. That is why the orders were to stand down and not interfere. Whether it was Obummer himself or one of his czars it doesn't matter. The whole point is that the U S will now stand up for the Muslims and not Israel or any of our old friends. The video was used as an exscuse and the man who made it is just another guy being thrown under the bus by the Obummer administration. The Communists couldn't stand seeing a free nation where people form other countries wanted to come to it so they set in motion years and years ago to destroy a nation they preceived as greater than theirs. Their jealousy is what started all this. They made it to where their own people didn't want to be in Russia and was jealous that people did want to be in the USA. We were too nice and didn't stop things back when we could have. There will no doubt be a civil war between the Communist freeloaders and the working class. May the working class win.

      Nice try. If the blame bamma didn't woik, blame commies. Yeah, it was the NEOCONs who sent their jewess Justice in the USSC to Egypt to tell them NOT to use our Constitution as their model because ours is old and no longer relevant and that they should model theirs after the Africa or European Constitutions preferably those created after WWII. WHY? Because they are NOT based on CHRISTIAN principles like ours is. Why does THAT burn her butt? She's not a Christian, is she... and she wants us to keep pumping money to Israel and doesn't want those arab countries to start leaning toward democracy. THE JIG IS UP. Your touting success for the people in commie lands doesn't jive with your dinging the success of the people in arab lands wanting freedom and democracy. IT WON'T WORK ANYMORE. BETTER STOP ISRAEL FROM ITS WARMONGERING AND MAKE THEM BEHAVE BE FAIR AND BE GOOD NEIGHBORS OR BE GONE FROM OUR BACKING. That's how it is going to work. This Israel crap is getting very very old and costing us and the world too dang much.

    Obama is soooo right. I do have a problem with Susan Rice and him. She was sent out to do his dirty work of covering up the tragedy, but the truth is coming out.

  • golfcrackerjack

    Liars, all of them. Patraeus sounds rational when his penis isn't tumescent, but it's hard to trust any of them. Oh, and did anyone notice, Barry's gonna be president for another four lovely years!

  • American exPat

    Quit coddling these people! Appoint a special prosecutor such as in Watergate and let the chip or heads fall where they may! Someone or 'someones' in the administration are involved in this tragedy, and they are in it up to their necks! The threat of being labeled a racist for pursuing anything related to our nation's first black president has effectively shut down almost all media outlets, and now it appears as if it has even permeated the FBI, the CIA, and Congress. The people of America want answers, and not the ones currently being offered by the spineless hacks and subversives that have infested our nation's government.

    So you believe the Flip Flopper General to tell the truth about anything if a lie will help his career? This guy was a mistake from the get go. Got his ladder from his wife's dad who was strong in the military. The Flip Flopper General is dangerous even to the security of his own home... why do you think he has been or would be more protective of truth in our military or government. He does fit in with the current FBI and CIA reputation. They can't even find a kid in Oregon or where he was taken to other locations. Yeah, that's a fit for this guy... but he got caught.
