From Fox News.
The anti-Islam film trailer that the White House has repeatedly blamed for sparking unrest in the Middle East had nothing to do with the attack that led to the death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, that nation’s president said in a television interview.
Libyan President Mohamed Magarief said the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, which also resulted in the deaths of three other Americans, was more likely pegged to the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
“Reaction should have been, if it was genuine, should have been six months earlier. So it was postponed until the 11th of September,” Magarief told NBC’s Ann Curry in the exclusive interview. “They chose this date, 11th of September to carry a certain message.”
……Magarief noted that there were no protesters at the consulate prior to the attack, and that the incident was more of a clearly coordinated assault than a demonstration run amok. He noted the attackers used rocket-propelled grenades on the consulate and then fired mortars at a safe house where Stevens had fled.
……”It’s a pre-planned act of terrorism,” Magarief said, concluding that the trailer for a purported film called “Innocence of Muslims” had “nothing to do with this attack.” The trailer had been on the Internet since July, but no full-length film has emerged.
During the interview, Ann Curry (she’s still working for NBC??) tried like hell to get Magarief to backtrack his statement.
“What is your evidence?” “And this is what is helping to convince you that this was a pre-planned attack, not a reaction to a controversial movie?” “How dare you repudiate our Obamessiah?” Okay, I made up that least one. But the first two were almost verbatim. She kept asking asinine embarrassing questions about “evidence” even as Margarief gave details about the attacks, the tactics used by the terrorists, that their attack was focused, and groups behind them.
The MSM can’t admit Obama is a miserable failure as a human being and a leader. Even when they get a face full of truth about what actually happened in Libya and across the Middle East thanks to Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, they still refuse to admit they’re wrong. Protect Obama at all costs.
