Many times I have read that the Muslim Brotherhood, and then-Egyptian President, Mohamed Morsi (Mursi), were behind the Benghazi attack, and funded the attack though Ansar al-Sharia. A strange confluence of events came together just before the Benghazi attacks (more below). Now there are reports that the Saudis funded the attacks, and both reports point to al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), based in Algeria. Hillary Clinton’s “adviser,” Sidney Blumenthal, reportedly had his email hacked by Romanian hacker “Guccifer,” or Marcel Lazar Lehel, as he is known legally. Blumenthal allegedly corresponded with Hillary:
One purported Blumenthal email from Feb. 16, 2013, addressed to Clinton quoted sources “with direct access to the Libyan National Government, as well as the highest levels of European governments, and Western intelligence and security services.”
The email said the information comes from “extremely sensitive sources and should be handled with care.”
The email quotes an “individual with sensitive access” stating information provided by French security services indicated the funding for both the Benghazi and Algeria attacks “originated with wealthy Sunni Islamists in Saudi Arabia.”
Continued the purported email: “During July and August 2012, these financiers provided funds to AQIM contacts in Southern Europe, who in turn passed the money onto AQIM operatives in Mauritania.”
AQIM refers to Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb.
“These funds were eventually provided to Ansar Al Sharia and its allied militias in the Benghazi region” to support the attack, states the email.
Ansar Al Sharia claimed responsibility for the Benghazi attack.
The purported Blumenthal email added that the “Saudi” money was utilized to procure ammunition and supplies. More from Aaron Klein at WND.
Remember, that email was sent to Hillary Clinton, assuming the story of the hacked emails is true.
In March 2013, an adviser to Clinton, Sidney Blumenthal, had his e-mail hacked by “Guccifer” — the Romanian hacker perhaps best known for revealing George W. Bush’s paintings to the world. At the time, Gawker reported that Blumenthal was communicating with an account that appeared to belong to Clinton at the “clintonemail.com” domain. The content of some of those e-mails was published by RT.com.
When the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi was elected president of Egypt for that very short time (before they unseated him), he promised to get the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman, released from the U.S. prison where he is incarcerated for masterminding the 1993 World Trade Tower bombing. There have been reports (maybe nothing more than rumors, but how would we know?) that the Muslim Brotherhood had a plan to kidnap U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi, and exchange him for the Blind Sheikh. Other stories made the rounds that the White House was in on the kidnapping–convenient for Obama to get Rahman back to the people he (Obama) reveres. Do you really think we would have let Chris Stevens live out the rest of his life in a jail cell in some Muslim country? But, of course, the kidnapping, if that’s what it started out to be, went wrong. In June 2013, just three months before Ambassador Stevens died, Morsi was giving press conferences about the release of the Blind Sheikh.
As for President Morsi, a video made during the consulate attack records people speaking in the Egyptian dialect: as they approach the beleaguered U.S. compound, one of them yells to the besiegers, “Don’t shoot—Dr. Morsi sent us!”
