I’m trying to keep up with the stories that add to the analysis of what transpired in Benghazi on September 11 and thereafter in the Obama administration. Here is today’s round-up.
Sharyl Atkisson of CBS News examines our military’s ability lend assistance during the attack (video below). Her story is “Could U.S. military have helped during attack.” The New York Post has a related report.
Hannah Allam and Jonathan Landay chart the changing administration narrative in “U.S. description of Benghazi attacks, at first cautious, changed after 3 days.” On the same subject, below is a video of the Fox News report “Tracking the administration’s changing narrative on Benghazi.”
Also necessary are Tom Joscelyn’s “Spinning Benghazi” and Steve Hayes’s “W.H. tries to write Al Qaeda out of Libya story” as well as James Rosen’s Fox News report “Documents show Stevens worried about Libya security threats, Al Qaeda before consulate attack” and Rosen’s excellent Wall Street Journal column “The three Benghazi timelines we need answers about.”
UPDATE: Among other stories to the same effect out today, see also the Telegraph’s s “Benghazi attack: CIA reported ‘within 24 hours’ Islamist militants to blame.”
