              FILE – In this Jan.23, 2013, file photo U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham pounds her fist as she testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the deadly September attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Republicans and Democrats began condemning each other

The real reason for the Benghazi cover-up, revealed

The Obama-Clinton national security team took their eye off the ball and four great Americans died. Now the Obama-Clinton spin doctors are working overtime to rewrite history before the 2016 election. The theme of their deceptive PR campaign revolves around one central claim: the Benghazi attackers were not members of al-Qaeda (or as they say, “core” al-Qaeda).

This past Sunday, Senator Ben Cardin, an Obama-Clinton loyalist from Maryland, refused to give a yes or no answer regarding al-Qaeda’s involvement in Benghazi on Fox News Sunday. Cardin said he “knows there was extremist involvement,” but astonishingly refused to say whether there was an al-Qaeda connection.

The week before, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said that Ansar al-Sharia, the group her own agency pinned as being responsible for Benghazi, are not “official affiliates of core al-Qaeda.”

And a few days before Psaki’s statement, the Clinton-defending New York Times boldly claimed that “al-Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had no role in the assault” on the Benghazi facilities.

You can certainly expect to hear more of this “core al-Qaeda” nonsense, and you can count on the liberals in the mainstream media to eat up this propaganda, but I’d like to set the record straight.

According to intelligence officials, a leader of Ansar al-Sharia, who trained with bin Laden and has links to a key al-Qaeda facilitator being held in Gitmo, participated in the Benghazi attack.

If a man who trained with bin Laden isn’t al-Qaeda, I don’t what is.

The true story of Benghazi must be told.
