Ahmed Abu Khatallah Indictment: Video? What Video?

Washington Times:

The Obama administration’s just-released criminal complaint against the alleged mastermind of the Benghazi terrorist attacks provides a final contradiction to its own evolving explanations for what happened that day.

The Justice Department’s indictment spells out a calculated conspiracy by Ahmed Abu Khatallah and associates to attack the U.S. diplomatic mission and CIA annex, which killed four Americans. The indictment might be viewed as a death knell for a theory that the attack resulted from a spontaneous protest against a U.S.-produced video.

...To retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney, a member of the ad hoc group Citizens Commission on Benghazi, the information reflects what the White House knew all along.

“The administration knew it was a conspiracy from the start due to all-source intelligence and the warning from al Qaeda to avenge the death of al-Libi in June 2012,” Gen. McInerney said.

He was referring to a CIA drone strike that killed al Qaeda deputy Abu Yahya al-Libi in Pakistan’s tribal areas. Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri publicly called for revenge against America.

Obama also helped the so-called Libyan Rebels after the Libyans threw a huge funeral honoring Abu Yahya al-Libi. Not to mention Gaddafi's warning that the rebels were al-Qaeda.

But I'm sure he didn't know.....

I mean The Jawa Report knew the Libyan rebels were al-Qaeda as early as 2009. But the f*cking president didn't? Sweet Jesus, we're so screwed.

The indictment is here at the Wall Street Journal(pdf) and embedded here at the Washington Post.

Read it for yourself.
