Al Qaeda, ex-Gitmo detainee involved in consulate attack, intelligence sources say........ Can you say "Terrorist Attack?"
attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was directly tied to Al
Qaeda -- with a former Guantanamo detainee involved.
That revelation comes on the same day a top Obama administration
official called last week's deadly assault a "terrorist attack" -- the
first time the attack has been described that way by the administration
after claims it had been a "spontaneous" act.
"Yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our
embassy," Matt Olsen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center,
said during a Senate hearing Wednesday.
