Obama’s false Benghazi narrative continues to crumble: CIA listened to terrorists talk to leaders on State Department phones

There’s been a stunning new revelation about the 2012 terrorist attack on the American diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya. The CIA listened in on the night of the deadly attack as terrorists used State Department cell phones seized after they stormed the compound to contact leaders to report their success (emphasis added):

Eric Stahl, who recently retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force, served as commander and pilot of the C-17 aircraft that was used to transport the corpses of the four casualties from the Benghazi attacks – then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods – as well as the assault’s survivors from Tripoli to the safety of an American military base in Ramstein, Germany.

In an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Special Report,” Stahl said members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff who raced to the scene of the attacks were “confused” by the administration’s repeated implication of the video as a trigger for the attacks, because “they knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.” Asked how, Stahl told anchor Bret Baier: “Right after they left the consulate in Benghazi and went to the [CIA] safehouse, they were getting reports that cell phones, consulate cell phones, were being used to make calls to the attackers’ higher ups.”

A separate U.S. official, one with intimate details of the bloody events of that night, confirmed the major’s assertion. The second source, who requested anonymity to discuss classified data, told Fox News he had personally read the intelligence reports at the time that contained references to calls by terrorists – using State Department cell phones captured at the consulate during the battle – to their terrorist leaders. The second source also confirmed that the security teams on the ground received this intelligence in real time.

Declassified testimony from General Carter Ham, a Defense Department official, confirmed that the Pentagon knew within moments that it was a terrorist attack. And, yet, the White House and State Department repeatedly tried to present the false narrative that the attack wasn’t an attack, but rather a protest over an anti-Islam YouTube gone awry.

Interestingly, Stahl was never interviewed by the State Department’s Accountability Review Board, which released its already shady report on the Benghazi attack in September. Relevations like this are why a review of what happened during the Benghazi attack and the false narrative set by the administration are necessary. If it looks and smells like a cover up, it probably is.
