Obama White House Contacted YouTube During Benghazi Attack – 3 Hrs. After Ansar Al-Islam Was Blamed for Attacks

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, May 23, 2014, 8:41 AM


This email was sent to State Department officials, White House officials, Secret Service officials at 6:07 PM EST on 9-11.

This was the third email sent to the White House the evening of 9-11 on the Benghazi attack.

The email clearly blamed Al-Qaeda linked group Ansar al-Sharia for the attack on the US consulate.
 This was before the lifeless body of Ambassador Stevens was dragged from the consulate ruins.


** Shortly after the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi where four Americans were killed, a phone call was made from Benghazi that linked the attack to Al-Qaeda. The call was made to a senior figure in al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM.

So what did the Obama White House do with this information?

They called YouTube.
ABC News reported:


A still-classified State Department e-mail says that one of the first responses from the White House to the Benghazi attack was to contact YouTube to warn of the “ramifications” of allowing the posting of an anti-Islamic video, according to Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The memo suggests that even as the attack was still underway — and before the CIA began the process of compiling talking points on its analysis of what happened — the White House believed it was in retaliation for a controversial video.

The subject line of the e-mail, which was sent at 9:11 p.m. Eastern Time on the night of the attack, is “Update on Response to actions – Libya.” The was written hours before the attack was over.

Issa has asked the White House to declassify and release the document. In the meantime he has inserted a sentence from the e-mail in the Congressional Record.

“White House is reaching out to U-Tube [sic] to advice ramification of the posting of the Pastor Jon video,” the e-mail reads, according to Issa.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
