In other words, they knew from the very start that it wasn’t a YouTube video, and people at the highest levels of government have been knowingly lying to everyone about the situation. Just FYI.

Fox News.

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

Eric Stahl, who recently retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force, served as commander and pilot of the C-17 aircraft that was used to transport the corpses of the four casualties from the Benghazi attacks – then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods – as well as the assault’s survivors from Tripoli to the safety of an American military base in Ramstein, Germany.

In an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Special Report,” Stahl said members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff who raced to the scene of the attacks were “confused” by the administration’s repeated implication of the video as a trigger for the attacks, because “they knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.” Asked how, Stahl told anchor Bret Baier: “Right after they left the consulate in Benghazi and went to the [CIA] safehouse, they were getting reports that cell phones, consulate cell phones, were being used to make calls to the attackers’ higher ups.”

    Even the murderous terrorists got free Obama phones, while we got stuck with the bill. I pray more people will begin to exercise their free speech and come forward to tell us the truth of what happened, finally.

    Keep Trey Gowdy in your prayers as he begins turning over tables and chasing down the rats. The truth will out, and hopefully people will go to jail.

    Hillary’s campaign asked who do you want answering the phone at 3:00 am implying that it should be her. In real life, she denied sufficient security such that the phone call went to terrorist leaders. Heckuva job Hillie.

    Andrew McCarthy has an excellent column on the indictment of Khatallah. Turns out that Khatallah is indicted for supporting a terrorist conspiracy not as a terrorist himself. (Hasn’t Khatallah repeatedly stated that he led the attack? If yes, then I guess that Obama will have to be impeached for supporting a lawless Presidency not that he was President.) Also, the indictment is skimpy implying that DOJ really doesn’t want to win the case.
