Important new details have emerged regarding the September 11th siege in 2012 that left four Americans dead at a compound in Benghazi, Libya.
If you remember in the book Definitive Report by both Jack Murphy (Army Green Beret) and Brandon Webb (Navy SEAL),a friend of Glen Doherty, one of the Americans killed during the siege, it was reported by 21st Century Wire founder, Patrick Henningsen, that Obama’s former deputy NSA advisor and current CIA director, John O. Brennan had been directing covert black-ops in Libya as well as other parts in North Africa, prior to the siege that left four Americans dead at a compound in Benghazi. Brennan’s covert operations were said to have ‘prompted retaliation’ inside the compound in Libya, as former CIA director David Petraeus had been blackmailed into resignation by senior CIA officials.
All of this information was preceded by a massive cover-up involving mainstream media, Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Susan Rice and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, both of whom initially blamed the siege on a heavily propagandized film on YouTube entitled “The Innocence of Muslims.” This meme was spread on many major talk shows even though evidence failed to connect the film to the terror attack. In addition, the White House and President Barack Obama had many inconsistencies in their talking points about Benghazi, first labeling it a terror attack, then quickly shifting gears, denying that there were Al Qaeda operatives anywhere near the compound.
U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was said to have helped manage a large gun-running operation from the “Special Mission Compound” in Benghazi, as he was also said to have helped ship guns to the Libyan rebels to assist in the takedown of former dictator Moammar Gadhafi. In August, it was reported that dozens of CIA agents had been at the compound and also at a nearby weapons annex during the siege and had been subjected to monthly polygraph exams following the event, in an exclusive report from CNN, as noted by Russia Today:
“In an exclusive report, CNN said there were as many as 35 Americans on the ground in Benghazi at the time of the attack, 21 of which were working in a building that is believed to be operated by the Central Intelligence Agency. What the operatives were doing there that day remains a mystery, and it appears that the agency is making an extensive effort to try to stop any more information leaks.”
What was the CIA hiding?

A new report by the The Washington Post has named Abu Sufian bin Qumu, a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, as ‘playing a role’ in the Benghazi attack, according to witness accounts confirmed by U.S. officials. We are told that the United States State Department is to ‘designate’ three arms of Ansar al-Sharia, as foreign terrorist organizations, the locations include Darnah, Benghazi and Tunisia. Ansar al-Sharia is stated to have been led by Qumu.
Intelligence sources had implicated Qumu in the Benghazi attack, within two weeks of the incident , naming him as one of their prime suspects. Qumu, (as seen on the left) who is Libyan, was also involved with Al Qaeda’s Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), the group largely responsible for toppling the North African nation in 2011 alongside NATO.
The Shadows Double
Qumu has had quite a dark and transient past, in 1993 he joined up with Bin Laden’s mujaheddin, against Soviet forces, after apparently escaping from a Libyan prison where he was reportedly serving 10 years for assault, murder and drugs. He later joined the LIFG and traveled to Sudan at the same time Bin Laden relocated to the region.
In 1998, Qumu left the LIFG after pressure to leave Sudan and joined the Taliban in Pakistan. In a Wikileaks cable he was said to have helped the “Qadhafi Foundation in relocating extremists,” he was then subsequently arrested and extradited to the U.S.,”against the Libyan governments wishes,” and detained in Gitmo back in May of 2002. He was later released from Gitmo in 2007 sent back to Libya in 2008, then released from detention shortly thereafter.
This was an odd turn of events, considering Qumu was serving time for murder and drugs in Libya when he initially escaped from prison in the early 90′s. Wikileaks also points out Qumu’s financial ties to Al Qaeda’s operations:
“His alias was also found on Al-Qaida’s 11 September attacks financier Mustafa Al Hawsawi’s laptop as an Al-Qaida member receiving family support.”
As of 2004, Qumu was still listed as an enemy combatant. Recently, we learned of a facility in Gitmo that trained terrorists to be double agents, a facility known as ‘Penny Lane’…
Could Qumu been a part of this same secretive CIA program that used double agents to infiltrate Al Qaeda terror cells?
A trail of blood and lies have been left in Benghazi.
Watch as more information continues to trickle out over time…
