But they DID know it was a Youtube video?
1. An AQ affiliate was flying the AQ flag over the US Embassy in Cairo at the time of the Benghazi attack condemning the youtube video so that's not a stretch that Islamic extremists were doing the same thing in Benghazi.
2. Their assessment was that it was inspired by the demonstrations at the same time.
3. The next talking point related this to AQ.
3. The next original talking point was that initial assessment was Ansar al-Sharia but that the group had denied this.
Now let me ask you to use your common sense for a moment... if it was the WH's intent to cover up the fact that AQ had anything to do with this for election purposes, wouldn't that be a really stupid attempt considering this picture of the AQ flag over the US embassy in Cairo was in every newspaper in the world? On the same day! At the same time! Image: http://www.breitbart.com/mediaserver/09E915571E4143ECA40BAC917784D51F.jpg
You're actually saying Obama wanted to hide the fact that AQ was still strong when everyone was watching AQ destroy the Cairo embassy in real time on television?
Use your common sense.
