It appears FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who is tasked with heading the Bureau’s counter terrorism Intel apparatus, doesn’t think Benghazi was an act of terror.
Four Americans died in Benghazi, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, after Islamic radical jihadists sacked the U.S. consulate and a CIA annex.
We found a little overlooked gem in The Hill where Congressman Ron Desantis confirmed McCabe instructed a FBI section chief to not refer to the Benghazi massacre as a terror event as the underling was writing a report on the terror massacre for the larger U.S. intelligence community.
Sounds like McCabe got his talking points directly from Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Another black eye for the FBI.
Per The Hill:
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) said Wednesday he interviewed a recently retired FBI supervisor who told him he was instructed by Deputy Director Andrew McCabe not to call the 2012 Benghazi attack an act of terrorism when distributing a report on the FBI findings to the larger intelligence community.
The agent found the instruction concerning because his unit had gathered incontrovertible evidence showing a major al Qaeda figure had directed the attack and the information had already been briefed to President Obama, the lawmaker said.
“What operational reason would there be to issue an edict to agents telling them, in the face of virtually conclusive evidence to the contrary, not to categorize the Benghazi attack as a result of terrorism? By placing the interests of the Obama administration over the public’s interests, the order is yet another data point highlighting the politicization of the FBI,” DeSantis said.
