Another Admission by the Obama Administration of Deception about the Benghazi Attack

           In its indictment against a suspect it recently captured, the Obama Administration admits the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya in 2012 was a conspiracy by al-Qaeda, not a spontaneous response to a video, as it had falsely claimed for a long time after the attack, during the presidential election campaign.  President Barack Obama, who was eager to focus in domestic issues, had claimed during the campaign that al-Qaeda was diminished, as if to minimize the seriousness of the continued threat from this determined foe.  As I have posted previously, the Administration knew from the beginning that the sophisticated attack on the September 11 anniversary was coordinated by Islamists, meaning that its subsequent statements claiming otherwise were not accidentally misleading, but intentionally deceptive.  The indictment represents the Administration’s fullest admission that the video had nothing to do with the attack.
