RT – Officials within the Obama administration have REPORTEDLY said the deadly attack on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, which killed ambassador Chris Stevens, was planned in advance.
Both the New York Times and CNN are quoting sources within the administration as saying the attack on the consulate was planned.
CNN’s source claimed “Tuesday’s attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was planned in advance, and the attackers used the protest outside the consulate as a diversion”. Intelligence officials also reportedly said the attack on the Benghazi consulate was too coordinated or professional to be spontaneous.
Some media reports have also suggested ‘Innocence of Muslims’, the scandalous film that many blame for sparking the protest, was used as a pretext for the attacks on US embassies in Libya and Cairo.
Nevertheless, US Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey has called on notorious far-right Florida Pastor Terry Jones, who promoted the film, to “consider WITHDRAWING” his support for it. Dempsey expressed “concerns over the nature of the film, the tensions it will inflame and the violence it will cause.”
Senior US officials also told CNN that unmanned surveillance drones are expected TO BEGIN flying over Benghazai and other locations in eastern Libya to look for jihadi encampments and targets that may be tied to the deadly attack on American personnel.
