As investigations widen in the case of the recent assault in Benghazi that left US Ambassador John Stevens and three other Americans dead, new intelligence suggests the attack was tied to al-Qaeda, and particularly an associate of Osama bin Laden.

It has been suggested ever since the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi that terrorists may have been behind the raid that killed four Americans, including Mr. Stevens and a Navy SEAL, but this week the claim was heard by Congress as US lawmakers attempt to get to the bottom of the incident.

“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, Fox News reports.

Separately, a source close with Mr. Stevens tells CNN this week that the ambassador insisted before his death that he believed he was on an al-Qaeda hit-list.

In the immediate aftermath of the assault earlier this month, US officials explained that an anti-Islamic video uploaded to YouTube, ‘Innocence of Muslims,’ was the impetus behind protests across the Arab World, which pinnacled with the storming of a US consulate building in Benghazi on September 11. On Tuesday this week, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters, “We have provided information about what we believe was the precipitating cause of the protest and violence based on the information that we have had available,” and that the US stands by the claim that“spontaneous” attacks on the consulate resulted in the loss of four Americans. Conflicting reports in the days since suggest that the assault was not a spontaneous violent demonstration as originally described, however, and that the attack may have very well been thought out in advance and plotted to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center.

“We are looking at indications that individuals involved in the attack may have had connections to al-Qaeda or al-Qaeda’s affiliates, in particular al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb,” Mr. Olsen claimed this week before the Senate Homeland Security Committee. “I would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy,”

Fox News adds in their report that so far the finger is being pointed at 53-year-old Sufyan Ben Qumu, a veteran of the Libyan Army who has previously been interned at America’s military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba over accusations that he was linked with al-Qaeda. Qumu was released from Gitmo in 2007 despite being considered a threat by American authorities, and sent back to Libya, where he was promised to be held behind bars. The regime of former leader Muammar Gaddafi later released him from the facility, after which the Daily Mail says he “emerged as a leader of the rebels” that attempted to overthrow Gaddafi’s very government.

Before being captured by US forces shortly after the 2011 invasion of Afghanistan, Qumu is thought to have aided Taliban fighters and worked for a charity believed to be an al-Qaeda front. He has also been labeled as a one-time personal driver for Osama bin Laden, although Qumu has denied that allegations. Now he is being considered a suspect in last week’s assault.

On Wednesday, Libyan Prime Minister Mustafa A.G. Abushagur said that Mr. Steven’s effort overseas “played a key role in helping to liberate Libya from the oppressive regime of Muammar Gaddafi.”

    Sorry should have put it all together but perhaps it will give you all an idea about Libyans and whats going on there from the Libyan perspective.

  2. Suzy says:

    Found this also on the Libyan Herald,
    Have a nice day everyone.

  3. Suzy says:

    Here’s a couple of articles from whats going on on the ground in Libya.
    Whoever is instigating trouble their will be people power as they got rid of the tyrant so the Libyans will never allow anymore nonsense and are uniting to push the point! Don’t you just love this people power we should all take note!

    Thanks for the article ! It seems that there is no US ambassy in Benghazi : http://www.usembassy.gov/ ??!! There’s only one in Tripoli 😉

    Some day the “al-Quaeda excuse” won’t work any more. Whenever “intelligence sources” blame al-Quaeda for something, everyone will know that just means they are admitting that the event was created by someone in the intelligence community. And I think this is exactly how we should interpret this announcement.

  6. Stunned at Sunset says:

    General post,

    They’ve got Bradley Manning buried alive in an underground vault and they let this guy go?

    Where’s there head?


  7. DrinkDeep says:

    Qumu was covered by Tarpley on last Sunday’s AJ show (I think I posted it on the Pieczenik thread?) – it was interesting to hear Fox confirm his analysis. Of course, the way he described it, Qumu was in Gitmo until the CIA had “re-educated” him enough to go out and do their bidding….which puts us back to the CIA being behind the plot.

  8. Peacer says:

    Actually, this is probably the closes thing to the truth yet reported. Problem is, of course, that most people still do not understand the CIA/Al Qaeda connection and the fact the bin Laden was a CIA asset. It makes perfect sense that they would use one of his former associates to carry out another “mission.” Why do you think they let this one out of Gitmo and returned him to Libya? Rather than a “shift” of blame (and from whom did it shift — the Libyan protesters?) … it is more of a disguised confession of the truth; though not an entire disclosure, since they do not confess the likely Mossad and Saudi part of the equation.

  9. Paulo says:

    So, that’s all explained! CIA supports Al-Qaeda which sends Bin Laden’s driver to kill US embassador in Libia, where Al-Qaeda rebels are now in charge. Very simple =)

    • amosouldeer says:

      Of course, Paulo.) As soon as we here the word ‘terrorist’ we know that we’re talking in underhand, oops sorry short-hand, about the CIA: Coercive International Archons !
