Should Congress Declare War on Egypt?

The Congress shall have Power… To declare War… – U.S. Constitution, Article I, Sec. 8

In 1983, 241 Americans lost their lives in the Beirut Marine Barracks bombing. In 1993, the World Trade Center suffered its first attack and 18 Americans were killed in the Battle of Mogadishu in Somalia. The Khobar Towers bombing in 1996 left 19 Americans dead on Saudi sand. The embassies in Kenya and Tanzania resulted in the deaths of 12 Americans. The USS Cole bombing in 2000 saw 17 Americans murdered. Then came 9/11/01.

If there was one thing common to all of these attacks, it was that none of the attackers carried out the will of any nation state, making the war on terror much more difficult to fight. Thanks to evidence that has become a bit overwhelming, the 9/11/12 attack on a U.S. Special Mission Compound (SMC) and CIA Annex that resulted in the deaths of four Americans – to include a U.S. Ambassador – a declaration of war by the U.S. Congress on Egypt may be in order.

Two days after the attacks in Benghazi, we posted video taken during the firefight in Benghazi in which gunmen can be heard shouting, ‘Don’t Shoot us! We were sent by Mursi’! Although that version of the video has been taken down, we have found it elsewhere and re-posted earlier this month. To underscore the significance, this is evidence in real-time, that Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi was involved in the attack:

This leads us to a Libyan intelligence document uncovered by Raymond Ibrahim, which shows that both the Muslim Brotherhood and Mursi himself were involved in the Benghazi attacks. As the president of a nation state, both the aforementioned video and this document, solidify charges that the nation of Egypt perpetrated an act of war – on the orders of its President – against the United States.

The import of these two pieces of evidence – when taken together – cannot be overstated. The video reveals in real-time that the gunmen admitted to being sent by Egypt’s president. The document describes interrogations of an “Egyptian cell” involved in the attack:

According to the report, during interrogations, these Egyptian jihadi cell members “confessed to very serious and important information concerning the financial sources of the group and the planners of the event and the storming and burning of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi…. And among the more prominent figures whose names were mentioned by cell members during confessions were: Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi; preacher Safwat Hegazi; Saudi businessman Mansour Kadasa, owner of the satellite station, Al-Nas; Egyptian Sheikh Muhammad Hassan; former presidential candidate, Hazim Salih Abu Isma’il…”

It is also worth noting that a few months after the Benghazi attacks, Mursi admitted to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he desired the release of the mastermind behind the first World Trade Center bombing, the “Blind Sheikh”:

If Congress refuses to declare war on the nation state that attacked us on 9/11/12, can it at least prevent the Obama administration from sending weapons to the Syrian rebels Egypt is supporting?
