It now seems quite obvious to many that the “riot” that burned down our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and killed our envoy, J. Christopher Stevens, along with three others, was not a really a riot at all. Instead, it was an orchestrated assault by terrorists, probably Al Qaeda. So we get this kind of analysis from the Shadow Government website:
“The death of Ambassador Stevens is a wake-up call to the U.S. The Arab Spring is in the process of being hijacked by al Qaeda and we ignore the spread of violence and of al Qaeda’s pernicious vision in the Middle East at our own peril.”
“In the process”?
I agree that Al Qaeda probably orchestrated this attack; because Al Qaeda was always involved in the Libyan regime change.
At the very least, we were warned this was going to happen. The Algerian government said that Al Qaeda would get weapons during the conflict, and several reports mentioned the possibility that they would acquire rocket-propelled grenades. It is ironic that we now know the attack on the consulate was from Al Qaeda precisely because they got those RPGs. As Shadow Government said, “AQIM openly boasted of benefiting from Qaddafi’s weapons cache.” This was completely predictable.
