On September 16th, Accuracy in Media (AIM) held a conference with the Citizens Commission on Benghazi (CCB), which was comprised of several retired, decorated military and intelligence officials. One such official was four-star Admiral James “Ace” Lyons, who reiterated his belief that the 9/11/12 attack in Benghazi was possibly about a staged kidnapping operation gone awry.
The video below, shot by AIM’s Cliff Kincaid, provides additional insight from Lyons that backs up our “Ironclad” report. When asked by Kincaid to clarify his comments, Lyons responded by asking (and then answering a question):
“What was Mursi’s number one priority?… Get the release of the Blind Sheikh.”
This charge made by Lyons backs up our EXHIBITS L and M in our report, first published on June 30th of this year (and consistently updated).
Note in that video above that Admiral Lyons referenced his appearance on Lou Dobbs, during which he first introduced the possibility that Benghazi was about a kidnapping operation gone bad. That interview took place on November 14, 2012 and is EXHIBIT O in our “Ironclad” report. Here is the interview excerpt he was referring to:
