Benghazi Terrorists Used Captured American Phones

June 11, 2014

The Benghazi attackers used cell phones capture from State Department personnel to report the success of their operation, according to James Rosen.


The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.


As a refresher, here is a timeline compiled by Fox for the Benghazi attack.

Both White House spokesman Jay Carney and Hillary Clinton continued to claim that they had no reason to believe it was a coordinated attack.
