The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

Eric Stahl, who recently retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force, served as commander and pilot of the C-17 aircraft that was used to transport the corpses of the four casualties from the Benghazi attacks – then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods – as well as the assault’s survivors from Tripoli to the safety of an American military base in Ramstein, Germany.

In an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Special Report,” Stahl said members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff who raced to the scene of the attacks were “confused” by the administration’s repeated implication of the video as a trigger for the attacks, because “they knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.” Asked how, Stahl told anchor Bret Baier: “Right after they left the consulate in Benghazi and went to the [CIA] safehouse, they were getting reports that cell phones, consulate cell phones, were being used to make calls to the attackers' higher ups.”

According to Benghazi whistleblower Gregory Hicks, the deputy chief of mission in Libya, special forces were “furious” when they were told to stand down during the Benghazi attack.

 “I will quote Lieutenant Colonel Gibson,” Hicks told the House Oversight Committee in hearings today, “He said, ‘This is the first time in my career that a diplomat has more balls than somebody in the military.’”

It also suggests that the State Department was up to its eyeballs in it.

Every action they take....every side to which they align themselves...sees a breakdown of the current government and entire countries turned into Mad-Max.

There's a reason no US military assistance was provided.

The entire Libyan fiasco was essentially Fast N Furious....on steroids.  They flooded the entire Northeastern and East Coast of Africa with weapons...and put them into the hands of uneducated children.   They have been doing unspeakable things to the populace.

They thought they had Egypt....thank God for their secular, somewhat westernized military.

Take a quick look at the Middle Eastern....Muslim world today.   It's coming to a boil.  Iraq is spiraling.  Libya is MadMax at Thunderdome.

Yet our MSM don't point any of this out.

I submit we're not losing our country.   I submit the coup has already transpired and it's essentially lost.

We should question just exactly why there is no "opposition party" pushback from the Republican party.

We should question if blackmail or threats were made to anybody.   It's the only plausible explanation for complete and total inertia from the GOP leadership.

sorry for the rant and hijack....but enough is enough.

  • Your what hurts??
I watched the interview with this retired Air Force Major, and he is a very compelling guy.  Looks you right in the eye and tells the story straight. 

Nobody has ever said anything yet about these cell phones, and I can only imagine what the frickin' spin machine is working on right now.  There will be some kind of sidestepping on this one tomorrow....
