In attack aftermath, disagreement over how it began

By Adam Levine

As the investigation into the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, continues, there is disagreement about whether the violence was a result of a mob gone awry, a planned terror attack or a combination of the two.

The White House said Friday there was no indication before the attack in Libya this week that something was in the works beforehand.

"We were not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent," presidential spokesman Jay Carney said.

The comment came as a top Libyan official and some within Congress and other aspects of the U.S. government said there are signs now that the attack on the consulate that killed the ambassador and three other Americans was not a spontaneous outgrowth of a mob angered by an anti-Muslim film.

A U.S. official told CNN's Suzanne Kelly that American intelligence was sufficiently concerned about the attention the movie was receiving online to warn the embassy in Egypt in a bulletin a few days before protesters stormed that compound in Cairo on Tuesday, the same day the consulate in Libya was attacked by armed militants.

The warning did not specify a threat and the source did not say if that intelligence bulletin was sent to American diplomats in Libya.

Several American officials have told CNN this week there was no intelligence in advance that there was a plot in the making. Some officials have said it does not appear it was a fully planned ahead of time.

But a senior U.S. official told CNN's Barbara Starr on Friday that while the United States is not ready to draw a conclusion about whether the attack was spontaneous or planned, there is some evidence pointing to the notion there was a level of organization and planning behind it, given the extensive nature of the attack.

Moreover, a congressional source told CNN's Suzanne Kelly on Friday that there is disagreement within the intelligence community over whether this was planned. When pressed individually, some analysts have hedged, according to the source.

The Libyan government believes the Benghazi attack was planned and intended to inflict maximum damage, a top Libyan official told CNN's Arwa Damon.

Mohammed al-Megaryef, the president of Libya's ruling General National Congress, said the attacks were carried out by extremists with the intent of driving apart Libyans and Americans and sabotaging the relationship.

The information points more to the attack having started as a spontaneous protest that lasted for hours before metastasizing into a more organized attack, according to Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Maryland.

Ruppersberger and other members of the House Intelligence Committee were briefed Friday by Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus.

"In the beginning, we feel that it was spontaneous – the protest – because it went on for two or three hours, which very [is] relevant because if it was something that was planned then they could have come and attacked right away," Ruppersberger said.

Ruppersberger spoke to reporters after the briefing and said he believes the attack was by an al-Qaeda related extremist group.

Senator John McCain, R-Arizona, told reporters that in his opinion the incident was a terrorist attack, in part because of the use of rocket propelled grenades.

McCain, who had just left a briefing by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, observed the weaponry is not what a normal protester would bring to demonstrate, according to CNN's Kate Bolduan and Ted Barrett.

"It's hard to know exactly what took place and how long it was planned. I don't have that information," McCain said. "The reporting is that 15 people, with beards, with weapons, such as RPGs [rocket-propelled grenades] - people don't go to demonstrate and carry RPGs and automatic weapons. I mean, the facts on its face indicate this was not a mob action by a group of protesters."

"It was a terrorist attack, organized and carried out by terrorists," McCain said.

Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin said there are indications the attack was planned in advance.

"I think there's evidence of that. There's been evidence of that," Levin, D-Michigan, said after the Panetta briefing. "I don't think we know whether they were connecting it to the protests but the attack looked like it was planned and premeditated, sure. But I don't think there was evidence that it was a coming."

The top Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee agreed that while it does look like this was an organized attack, there was no indication the attack was coming.

"This was not just a mob that got out of hand. Mobs don't come in and attack, guns blazing," Rep. Adam Smith, D-Washington, in an interview with CNN." I think that there is a growing consensus it was preplanned, but please understand that is entirely different thing from saying we had intelligence about it. The people who did it, and it is looking increasingly like it was preplanned, we didn't have intelligence of their planning operation."

State Department Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy has said that the attack appeared to be planned because it was so extensive and because of the "proliferation" of small and medium weapons at the scene, a congressional source said earlier. He was briefing congressional staffers earlier this week when he offered that theory.

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said earlier this week that it was a targeted attack.

"It is - it was clearly a coordinated attack, a well-coordinated attack, I might add, that was specifically planned to do and accomplish what you saw unfortunately unfold in Benghazi," said Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Michigan, in an interview on CNN's Situation Room.

But on Friday, Rogers' spokeswoman said that the congressman was making his own conclusion from what he had been told in briefings.

"The evidence that Congressman Rogers has seen does not definitively say one way or another whether the attack was planned or not," said Susan Phalen, the communications director for the intelligence panel. "But as a former FBI agent, this seems to make the most sense to him."

Given what officials know about al Qaeda in Libya, intelligence officials believe it is very unlikely that core al Qaeda was behind the attack, a U.S. intelligence official told CNN on condition of anonymity. But the official said the intelligence does not rule out that the attack was perpetrated by al Qaeda sympathizers, though officials are not ready to identify a specific group.

"In Libya there are many elements, including al-Qaeda. I think it's pretty clear that they would have had some involvement but again whether it was after the fact, whether there was a spontaneous demonstration that they tried to take advantage of, again all this is still very fluid," said the House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King, R-New York.

There is a continuing question as to whether a message from al Qaeda's leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was influential in spurning the attack.

His specific call in a 9/11-anniversary video for Libyan Jihadists to attack Americans to avenge death of Abu Yahya al Libi was circulating at least 18 hours before the attack on the compound, according to terror analyst Ben Venzke of IntelCenter, leaving open the possibility that it played a role.

But Venzke told CNN terror analyst Paul Cruickshank that given the timing, it is hard to believe the message from Zawahiri instigated the attack in Libya.

"Based on more than a decade of threat analysis we have carried out, it would be unusual to have such a rapid correlation between a threat statement and an attack, but it is not outside the realm of possibility," Venzke said.

He said any statement of the kind made by Zawahiri would be taken seriously. However he said those providing threat assessments would not normally expect anything to happen within 24 hours.

He stressed Zawahiri's threat was only three lines in a forty something minute video tape. Given the language in the tape, analysts would tend not to have concluded an immediate attack was likely.

    Why do people have to keep going over this again and again? Both Obama and Hillary and Susan Rice have made it perfectly clear. There was this video see. And it insulted the prophet see. And it got them all so angry so after protesting for awhile they climbed over the walls of the consulate. Plus they had the RPGs and AK47s with them anyway see. Since that is how people in that part of the world ride.

    A child loves their parents unconditionally due to the love and care that was given to them over the years. If anyone was to insult, injure or harm in any way ones parent(s), then it is only natural and human to be saddened and pained. So goes the relationship of Billions of Muslims and the Holy last Messenger Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon Him). He has the best conduct, etiquette, kindness, etc... His life is studied, memorized and emulated out of the love of God and His gift to mankind. A good friend will be concerned with your well being, an extraordinary friend will be sincerely concerned with the well being of your children, and yet The Holy Last Messenger Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) was concerned about people who were yet to be born. He often cried in prostration O My Community, O My Community, O My Community. He even prayed after being pelted until his blessed shoes were soaked in blood, for the people who perpetrated that heinous crime. His prayer wasn’t for them to be destroyed and severely chastised, but that the people, their children, or their unborn children become Muslims. Due to this Humbleness and kindness, many love the Holy Last Messenger (PBUH) more than their parents, spouses, children and selves. The Muslim world is saddened and pained by the lies and insults brought against His Blessed Person by this movie, "Innocence of Muslims." There is no truth or sense about this egregious work. Are we to let sick movies like this go unchallenged because of "Free Speech?" Then while were at it, why don't we circulate "Birth of a Nation" and criticize all African Americans who speak out against it. Libel or Slander is not covered under the freedom of speech protections. This movie even violates Youtubes policies. If they do not consider this hate, then what is it? It sure isn't love. Years of Muslims and Christians working together in the aftermath of 911 is being sabotaged by those who want a clash between both faiths.
    It is unfortunate that lives are senselessly lost and muslims worldwide do not condone murder in any form. Guilty are those who orchestrate these events with hidden hands. All must condemn this sickening work and stand against those who support this filth of a film!

    Just after 9:35pm local time, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was overcome by smoke and died, trapped alone inside the burning villa after all the other Americans withdrew. Another diplomat, Sean Smith, and two U.S. security men were also killed that night.

    At the time this incident occurred was very late at night. Far past business hours, when the Consulate should have been closed and not occupied, especially if it was a non-fortified facility.

    * The biggest problem was they were living at the Consulate, which is a solid violation of USG security standards.

    USG employees can not work and live in the same location, unless it is new construction, that meets new fortification construction standards like the Embassy's in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan. That construction must also be completed and managed by a vetted American Construction Company.

    It's a simple rule which obviously wasn't being followed. One can not receive a waiver for this requirement either.

    It's in stone, no living and working in the same location, unless it is a fortified facility, which this location obviously was not.

    Sad this could have been avoided, if people were following the rules.

    What should have happened; the victims would have been living at a separate location, in a hotel or in houses away from the Consulate and this building would have burned to the ground and no one would have been injured or died.

      Was he living/sleeping in the consulate or working late? Why would the so called protestors come guns loaded to an empty building... sounds like they knew what they were doing and they knew who was inside. They were ready to kill – obviously.

    Obama has spent a week LYING to us about this attack now we find out it was preplanned by a terrorist released fromGITMO to the Libyan Government who was supposed to keep him in jail. It is infuriating to have such an irresponsible man as the President. His foreign policy is in ruins and the news media keeps covering up for him.
    Meanwhile Obama is hanging with JayZ and Beyonce and yucking it up on Letterman. Obama didn't know what our debt was when he became President. He is an empty chair.

      You are right on all the points. Obama clung to the "spontaneous riot" claim as long as he could to deflect criticism about his foreign policy. However, he is going to now blame Bush through the mainstream media. In the coming days you will hear the subject prefaced on all the networks in this manner, " the Libyan terrorist who was released from Gitmo in 2007 by President Bush...

    Shouldn't the President of the United States have the best intelligence in the world? Why does Obama speak out on the Libyan massacre and then have his spokesman start to "walk it back" because it is obvious the FBI report won't support his position of a spontaneous attack? Maybe if he would take a meeting with his security adviser once in a while, our President wouldn't look like he didn't get the memo in front of the entire world.

      You don't have to be a radical islamist to be disgusted and appalled by the movie "Innocence of Muslims." Lets ask our selves why would some one make a movie like this, except to incite violence. The world can see that the makers of such a film only wish to prolong the fighting between the religions. of cource they debut the film right in time for the 9-11 anniversary. The muslim world will protest and go into an angry uproar,and the media will lap it up, and feed the word the stories of how muslims are american hating terrorist. this is hate propaganda at its worst. Ridicule to any religion or religious figure is act of disrespect, no wounder its met met with anger and retaliation. With freedom of of speech there also comes responsibility.

    The sole purpose of the film "Innocence of Muslims" is to incite hate and violence between Muslims and Christians. The film has no factual basis and is built on lies and slander of The Holy Last Messenger (pbuh), whose honorable character can be researched and proven in any reputable history source. As a Muslim I can say first hand that we believe in and uphold Muslim/Christian Unity as there is only a thin line of difference separating our two faiths. This film deliberately creates animosity between us and wrongly villainizes Islam and The Holy Last Messenger (pbuh). Such a film clearly defaming the character of The Holy Last Messenger (pbuh) and spreading falsehood about him and Islam, therefore, purposely instigating bloodshed and turmoil, is a violation of the article of freedom of speech and should not be allowed to air on youtube or any other outlet.

    HINDU KALI – GODDESS OF VIOLENCE/TERRORISM

    A recent report by United Press trust of India (UPI) stated that during the past three years more than 2,500 young boys and girls were sacrificed to goddess Kali in India. Another of AFP's recent reports say: hundreds of young boys and virgin girls are sacrificed every month for the deity Kali. In one case Rama Sewak hacked his eight year old son to death in broad daylight in Delhi because goddess Kali had told him he would come back to life and bring him good fortune. Bloodthirsty Kali is worshipped openly the length and breadth of India. Kali's statue stands naked astride the inanimate body of the Hindu deity Shiva, tongue stuck out with blood dripping from fang-like teeth. She holds a noose, a skull-topped staff, a blood-encrusted sword and a severed head. She is also known as Durga, Devi, Shaktima, Uma and Parvathi in other manifestations. The priest of Delhi, Kali Bari, says that a child sacrificed to Kali ensures a man the birth of a son. Human sacrifices are also made to these gods or goddesses, either to appease them or to ask favours of them.

The Blessed and Beloved Holy Last Messenger of Almighty God, Prophet Muhammad(peace&Blessings be upon him) was a righteous and pure man of God. He was absolutely NOTHING like how he is depicted in this slanderous and hideous film. The Film was intended to be inflamatory and to incite hate and animosity between Muslims and our Christian brethern. Who,incidently, had nothing to do with ithe films creation.

    Across all religions and cultures that believe in the unity of god, like muslims and christians, it is a basic tenet of human decency that human lives are valued and apologies are offered to the aggrieved by those responsible for the deaths. If nothing more, the words of apology are soothing to the families of those who died.

    Besides emerging as a regional power, the time has come for Pakistan to take the leadership role in the Islamic World and lead them to the path of progress, prosperity and glory. The only nuclear nation in the Islamic World, Pakistan has shown the world that it can stand up to the nuances of world politics on principles and partake in global affairs. Also, that it can equally contribute to the progress of this planet called Earth. The sacrifices of the Pakistani nation in making this world safe are unmatched and deserves a seat at the table of the permanent members of The UN Security Council.

    It appears to me that Muslims are the fastest growing segment of world society today. As others are withering away the Muslims seem to be rising again with their contributions as was the case historically when they ruled India and Europe and left behind a legacy of science, art, architecture, culinary et al. One only needs to go to Spain and India to witness this. As immigrants, it is a good thing to be aware of your glorious heritage and be connected with it. The Italian immigrants do it as do the Germans, Polish, Jewish, Hispanic and many other cultures. What really pleasantly surprised me was what I witnessed in the Middle East. A tolerant and progressive Islamic society that has come so far in a few years. Most importantly providing job and economic opportunities to all, Hindus/Indians, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Europeans, Americans, Africans, South Americans, Chinese, and Russians etc. Never have I witnessed such openness and equal opportunities unless you go back to the times of Muslim rule in India and Spain. My conclusion is that the Muslims get it. They are striving to once again take their leadership role in the world order and take this civilization to its next level of excellence. The climb to success and progress is not a linear curve but a stochastic one. Let us join in wishing our Muslim brethren well and much success in their endeavors. If we can't help them let's not pull the rug from under them.

It's really unbelievable how unprepared this President is. What an utter failure to lead. This attack was a terrorist attack and this President was unprepared, NO increase in security especially on 9/11. Incredible

Seriously, I hear people on CNN saying this is a "bump in the road" – seriously? It is a terror strike against the United States on soverign property in a country we just liberated and the adminstration completely made it worse. CNN is on the take and the more biased they become, the more money they get paid....Next step – hire MSNBC hacks like Rachel Madcow...
