This is probably the first time most of you will hear of this. The House has just released a declassified intelligence report on Benghazi.

On the night of the attack, Gen. Ham was informed within 15 minutes of the attack that it was a planned terrorist attack. Hamm notified Gen. Dempsey, and they, along with Secretary Panetta, informed the president of this.

So now we know that President Barack Obama knew it was a terrorist attack, but for three weeks he told the country it was caused by an anti-Muslim video.

Of course during his debate with Mitt Romney, Obama said in his speech in the Rose Garden that he said it was a terrorist attack. He never called Benghazi a terrorist attack; he said America will not tolerate a terrorist attack.
