U.S. government knew about al-Qaeda 'pep rally for jihad' in Benghazi that included calls for the murder of American diplomats - just months before terror attack

    A report prepared for the government in August 2012 described a massive military presence of Ansar al-Sharia, the group behind the Benghazi attack
    It warned 'assassinations' would follow, and said the first attack on the U.S. diplomatic station quickly followed the two-day June rally in Benghazi
    U.S. State Department intelligence undoubtedly saw the report, yet the agency denied frequent requests for extra security in the city
    The Sept. 11, 2012 attack left U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead, and razed the facility

Al-Qaeda terrorists held a massive military rally just a few miles from the U.S. State Department compound in Benghazi, Libya during the summer of 2012 and called for the murder of U.S. diplomats, it was revealed today.

And the U.S. government knew about it by August, a full month before the attack that left the American ambassador and three others dead, official papers state.

Black al-Qaeda flags were out in full force at the June 7-8 event, a two-day rally including 300 armed men gathered in Benghazi's Al-Tahrir Square.

Just days later on June 11, bombers targeted the Benghazi U.S. mission, blowing 40-foot hole in the installation's perimeter wall. The larger attack came three months later.
