Fox News: 'Pleading' distress calls made from US consulate on night of Benghazi attack These guys knew the attack was premeditated and planned by local terrorist-affiliated groups, and were amazed and angry that the administration blamed the attack, in which Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed, along with embassy information officer Sean Smith and private security officers and ex-SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, on a farcical you.tube video. That the administration could claim this was "spontaneous" is just another indication of their total disassociation from the truth. One of the five who testified behind closed doors last week said that, upon his team's arrival at the consulate compound, five mortar rounds struck the area in less than a minute. Mortars aren't set up "spontaneously." This whole thing needs to come out, and it's beginning to appear that it will.
