The Associated Press reports that General Carter Ham admitted yesterday that maybe it was al-Qaeda that was involved in the attack on the Benghazi, Libya consulate which left four dead Americans in it’s wake;
Al-Qaida links had been suspected in the attack on Sept. 11, but not publicly detailed.
“Clearly some of these individuals have some linkages to AQIM,” or al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, Gen. Carter Ham, the head of the U.S. military’s Africa Command, told reporters in Paris. “That’s not to say that this was an AQIM-planned or organized or led activity.” He did not elaborate.
Funny how al Qaeda’s involvement in the attack is finally addressed by this administration while the rest of the media is concentrating on trying to get pictures of Lebanese boobies and a week after the election during which this President claimed that al Qaeda is “on the ropes” thanks to his leadership. I guess “on the ropes” means something different in Washington than it does to the rest of the country.
