In a shocking revelation, Reuters is reporting tonight that both White House and State Department officials were told that the attack in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans was a coordinated act of terror by the group called Ansar al-Sharia.
According to Reuters, this alarming new information was obtained from emails provided by an anonymous government source.
“The brief emails also show how U.S. diplomats described the attack, even as it was still under way, to Washington.”

This breaking news is significant because President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton and UN Ambassador Susan Rice initially claimed the attacks were the result of protests due to a YouTube film. These newly discovered emails confirm that these three individuals were lying to the American people, the media and the United Nations in the days following the Benghazi attack.Subscribe to our Morning Briefing and get the news delivered to your inbox before breakfast!
