The following information is damning evidence that the Benghazi “video” excuse was a set-up.
A statement was issued by the US Embassy in Cairo at 6:17 AM on September 11, 2012.
The statement has since been scrubbed from the White House online statement records and the U.S. Embassy – Cairo statement online records: http://egypt.usembassy.gov/pa/press3.html, however, Clinton and Obama’s statements made on 9-12-2012 (the next day) still remain in the online records of statements.
There are plenty of websites that linked to that Cairo statement that used to be on the Cairo Embassy website. Those articles are still on the Internet. When you click on the articleÂ link to the Cairo Embassy statement, it goes now to a “404 — File Not Found” blank page – http://egypt.usembassy.gov/pr091112.html
The U.S. Embassy in Cairo released a statement at 6:17 AM est on Sept. 11, 2012, HOURS BEFORE the FIRST terror attack on the Libyan Embassy to apologize for protests that were NOT HAPPENING.
From that 6:17 AM statement, the Egyptian? News / TV/ Media were alerted to a video They picked up the YouTube location and name of the video, they widely broadcast the video information to Egyptians and called for a protest at 5 P.M. in Cairo – Hours AFTER terror attacks on the Libyan Embassy had started.
One of the articles I found that had a link to the original 6:17 AM statement is on PolitiFact.com. The article was by Louis Jacobson, “Did the U.S. embassy in Cairo make an apology?” It is one of many articles that linked to the US Embassy Cairo statement when it was still online – http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2012/sep/12/romney-says-us-embassy-statement-was-apology-was-i/ You will see the article link that should have gone to the Cairo Embassy statement is “file not found” now.
So, the Benghazi timeline actually is amended to the following:
September 11, 2012
6:17 A.M. – EST – U.S. Embassy in Cairo issues a statement that brings attention to “a YouTube Video” that was described as denigrating to the Prophet Muhammad. This “statement” used to be posted on the U.S. Embassy at Cairo’s website – http://egypt.usembassy.gov/pr091112.html The release document has been removed from their website.
6:17 and during the next 11 hours, radio, television and Internet published and distributed the YouTube Location and Video Name and television personalities called for demonstrations to be staged in the city of Cairo at 5:00 PM.
2:30 P.M. – EST – Ambassador Stevens checks outside before retiring to his bedroom quarters. NO PROTESTS OR PROTESTING of any tiype was going on outside the Embassy at this time.
3:40 P.M. – EST – The initial attack started at the Lybian Embassy.
Between 4:15 p.m.-4:45 p.m.: Sean Smith is found dead.
5:00 P.M. – EST – Cairo protesters climbed the Cairo Embassy walls in protest, which was broadcast in Egypt, further fanning the hysteria started by the 6:17 A.M. statement released by the Cairo Embassy.
6:07 P.M.: The State Department™s Operations Center sends an email to the White House, Pentagon, FBI and other government agencies that said Ansar al-Sharia has claimed credit for the attack on its Facebook and Twitter accounts. (The existence of the email was not disclosed until Reuters reported it on Oct. 24.)
About 8:30 P.M.: Libyan security forces were able to assist us in regaining control of the situation. At some point in all of this “ and frankly, we do not know when “ we believe that Ambassador Stevens got out of the building and was taken to a hospital in Benghazi. (White House issued statement)
About 10:00 P.M.: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issues a statement confirming that one State official was killed in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Her statement, which MSNBC posted at 10:32 p.m., made reference to the anti-Muslim video.
Clinton: “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet.”
On the morning of September 11, 2012, this author heard of the Cairo Embassy statement through AP (which ALSO is no longer available in archives).
I immediately read the statement and then looked up “the video” myself. That was around 9:00 am and approximately 6 hours and 45 minutes before the first reports of attacks at Benghazi surfaced. There were around 440 “views” of the “video” at that time, which in YouTube world, is a video that has had practically NO viewers.
I looked for information about “protests” through Reuters and AP, but there were none. I was confused at the “apology statement” since nothing was going on.
It is apparent to me that the statement was issued so that all of the media in Egypt would get the information about a “video” and whip it up into a proper frenzy – which is what happened. By noon, their time, there was a public media call for an official “Protest” at 5 PM, (their time). Where protesters were photographed and filmed in full, riotous rigor. http://www.cnbc.com/id/48992623 On 9-12-2012, The Daily News Egypt (Independent Online Newspaper in English) reported,
Nearly 3,000 demonstrators, most of them hardline Islamist supporters of the Salafist movement, gathered at the (Egyptian) embassy in (the 5:00 PM) protest over a film deemed offensive to the Prophet Mohammed which was produced in the United States.
The Salafist Movement created The al-Nour Party.
The al?Nour Party (Arabic: ??? ??????, ?izb Al?N?r) (”Party of The Light”) is one of the political parties created in Egypt after the 2011 Egyptian Revolution. It has an ultra-conservative Islamistideology, which believes in implementing strict Sharia law.
Al?Nour was set up after the 2011 Egyptian revolution, when the interim military government allowed the formation of new parties. It was established by one of the largest Salafist groups in Egypt, The Salafi Call.
Keep in mind that the Salafist Movement founded The al-Nour Party after the 2011 Egyptian Revolution. The Salafist Movement was cited as being the majority of demonstrators that showed up for the 5:00 PM demonstration at the Cairo. However, the same article stated that a Libyan witness said that armed men had closed the streets leading up to the (Libyan) consulate, among them ultra-conservative Salafists. Also keep in mind that the Libyan attack started almost 2 hours before the first demonstration held in Cairo at 5:00 P.M.
al-Nour logo is unbelievably similar to Obama logo
The following was learned after the U.S. Embassy in Cairo protests: During the entry into the embassy grounds United States Marines were not allowed to carry live ammunition by the State Department. Egypt’s prime ministerHesham Kandil said “a number” of protesters later confessed to getting paid to participate (in the protest).
Here are pictures that were taken by Ibn Zawaar out of 152 pictures he posted as taken on September 14, 2012 during subsequent protests. The similarity of organization to Occupy rallies in the U.S. is striking,

Every “official” timeline for “Events Of Benghazi” by government officials and reporters alike begins with the reports of the Embassy attack at 3:40 PM (U.S.A. time) and riots in Cairo (5 PM, U.S.A. time). The timeline posted on FactCheck.ORG starts almost 2 hours earlier with reports of what was observed at the Benghazi Embassy prior to the initial attack (which was no activity and relative calm) http://www.factcheck.org/2012/10/benghazi-timeline/
It is clear that the protests were REQUIRED in order for the Benghazi attack to be pulled off. Something had to be blamed.
The Muslims had to be publicly provoked in order to cover up this staged attack and Obama would not have to be compelled to retaliate. The Muslim outrage was “justified”.
The U.S. Embassy Cairo statement was posted in the Politifact article, as well as linked to:
What the Cairo Embassy Statement Said
According to media reports, the U.S. embassy in Cairo released a statement at 6:17 a.m. East Coast time on Sept. 11, 2012, amid growing anger in Egypt about an obscure Web video with a highly negative portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad — a video that, given past experiences with depictions of Muhammad, seemed likely to spark protests.
The statement condemned the video:
“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims “ as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
We are glad to have found an article that posted the entire text of the Cairo Embassy statement as well as the reference link to the original article.
