NY Times changes Story, Now Says Benghazi Khattala Was Upset Over Video

I have been looking for confirmation of this story, and Gateway Pundit has picked it up so here goes. It is of course, “unnamed sources” to the Times that are spinning this. But knowing this regime, it makes sense. So Abu will be offered a deal. Give us the “video made me do it” in exchange for who knows how many Gitmo terrorists. Maybe a cushy prison, really the options are endless. So here we go:

What he did in the period just before the attack has remained unclear. But Mr. Abu Khattala told other Libyans in private conversations during the night of the attack that he was moved to attack the diplomatic mission to take revenge for an insult to Islam in an American-made online video.Fast forward to today…

The New York Times now says Khattala planned the attack because he was upset about the American-made online movie.

So, the one guy who will substantiate the White House claim that the YouTube video animated a “peaceful protest” is the only one caught, after two years, when he’s walking around mocking the charges? And it happens to be during a time when Obama’s foreign policy is collapsing and the administration is mired in scandals.But the the big deal here is how the New York Times joins Clinton’s battlespace prep with this unsourced report, citing “private conversations,” in which Abu Khattala is said to have launched the Benghazi attack to take “revenge” against the “Innocence of Muslims” video — the controversial online film which was the basis for the administration’s Susan Rice talking points after the attack of September 11, 1012.

Khattala was mocking the U.S. so openly that many journalists met and talked to him about it.

Mr. Abu Khattala, 41, wearing a red fez and sandals, added his own spin. Contradicting the accounts of many witnesses and the most recent account of the Obama administration, he contended that the attack had grown out of a peaceful protest against a video made in the United States that mocked the Prophet Muhammad and Islam.

After Colonel Qaddafi fell, Mr. Abu Khattala was one of the disgruntled veterans of the uprising who kept Benghazi on edge. Though he had friends among the militia leaders of the city who were close to American and British diplomats who took residence in the city, he kept his distance from foreign diplomats and rallied his own supporters to protest what he viewed as foreign interference in Libya’s affairs.

So what changed?
Hillary is running for president and needs cover.
Why else would their story change?

    I hate to say this, but this regime is always at least two steps ahead of everyone else. The spin begins and the MSM is going to run with it to protect Obama and Hillary. This was the plan all along and now it is in motion. At this point I don’t see how we can beat the machine.

      The only thing I have learned is to look for the Friday dump. It never disappoints. Especially on Holiday weekends. Way too far ahead of us.

    de video boss de video. This should help stop the dog poop republicans from “getting to the bottom of Benghazi” and allow them to get on with their platitudes as they gear up for November.

      Now we know that there is nothing to see. I feel so relieved.

    Who cares?

    The only people fussing over this are the hardcore righties.

    Strange how he even happened to view that vid – only he and 16 others even saw it! Those must’ve been the ‘ones’ who got so upset and outraged they were forced to act! … yeah right. This ‘stuff’ is actually ‘BORING’ when one really thinks about it. It’s ‘foolishness’ and ‘childish’, just like this Administration. 1 + 1 = it’s Obama and Hill-of-beans fault!


    • bunkerville Says:
