President Obama’s outsized attempts at showing disgust at the controversial anti-Islamic film “The Innocence of Muslims” may have all been for naught, allegedly undertaken to stop future attacks of the kind perpetrated in Benghazi, may have all been for naught.
Why? Because in an interview with NBC last night, Libyan President Mohammed Magarief said the attacks “had nothing to do with” the video, and that in fact he was certain they were a pre-planned act of terror. The Washington Free Beacon caught video of Magarief’s appearance, as well as the following transcript:
CURRY: What is your evidence that it was a pre-planned act of terrorism?
MAGARIEF: Number one is choosing the date, 11th of September. It has all the significance. We take the facts about the way it was executed, you can see there’s enough proof that it is a pre-planned act of terrorism.
CURRY: Describe the attack based on your investigation.
MAGARIEF: It’s too early for me to give the details, but it was launched with a high degree of accuracy, which means the perpetrators must have had some kind of exercise on how to hit and launch these rockets.
CURRY: You’re confirming that rpgs were used in the initial attack.
MAGARIEF: And mortars.[…]
CURRY: Do you think movie had anything to do with the attack?
MAGARIEF: Not on this attack, it had nothing to do with this attack.
Magarief also said that the rockets and mortars were fired with such accuracy that they could not possibly have been used by an amateur – this attack had to be the work of someone with training.
