White House: “No Actionable Intelligence” That Could Have Prevented Libya Attacks
The White House says a report by the UK newspaper The Independent that there was credible intelligence 48 hours before the attacks is false.
White House press secretary Jay Carney said there was “no actionable intelligence” ahead of the attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.
“There was no intelligence that could in any way have been acted on to prevent these attacks,” he said. “The report was false…
“We have no information to suggest it was a pre-planned attack,” Carney said. “The unrest we’ve seen across the region was in response to a video … not in response to a 9/11 anniversary, that we know of.”
