    I am sorry, but I don't buy this.  I myself believe tht the group that attacked the consulate were Libyan islamist fighters that still had weapons left over from the Libyan war.  They saw an opportunity to cause harm and they took it.  Some were local and they looted the consulate.  The CIA should be able to track the items that were taken.  I don't think this was planned at all unless it was planned that day.  No, I don't think that 9/11 was a factor in the timing of the attack.  I do think the video was a motivator in the timing of the attack.  I do think that those who attacked could be in Syria now to escape being caught.  It looks like one of the attackers was killed in Egypt.  I am still suspicious of this though because the man was not questioned before being killed.  If the CIA was involved in any way than they should be held responsible of what went down, and should have called for backup themselves.

    I think that the CIA or FBI and the whole inteligence community leaking these reports don't do anyone any good.  The media and all of us should wait until the investigations are complete.
