Egypt Television airing our work on Benghazi suspect

This video was sent in by one of our readers. It appears to be one produced originally by the Western Center for Journalism back in August. We cannot confirm and do not endorse all of the claims made in the video (we refer you to our “Ironclad” Report when seeking our positions on this subject matter) but what may be more important than the content is the number of people who likely saw it – on a prominent Egyptian television network known as Al Kahera Wal Nas (not talking about number of YouTube views).

Here is the report as it aired on Egyptian television, with Arabic subtitles:

As we have reported previously, one of the most untold and unreported stories when it comes to the Benghazi attack involves Tarek Taha Abu Al-Azm, an Egyptian who was trained by the United States Air Force (USAF) according to multiple Arabic sources. Al-Azm was also arrested in a raid on a Nasr City terror cell in October of 2012 and is considered a leader – if not the top leader – of the Jamal Network, which was recently designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department. Muhammad Jamal Abdo Al-Kashif, the jailed leader of the group was also named by the State Department as a terrorist:

State Dept: Formally acknowledges Jamal Network as terrorist entity.

State Dept: Formally acknowledges Jamal Network as terrorist entity.

Al-Azm: Americans don't hear about him but Egyptians do.

Al-Azm: Americans don’t hear about him but Egyptians do.

Again, the silence in the western media when it comes to Al-Azm is deafening but as Egypt prepares to put Muslim Brotherhood leaders on trial, Egyptian media seems to be educating the Egyptian people about him. While the State Department has identified the Jamal Network and Al-Kashif as a terrorist entity and terrorist respectively, it has not formally acknowledged the network’s involvement or Al-Azm’s involvement in the Benghazi attacks.

Something else we’re not hearing about are any requests from the Obama administration to interview, extradite, or otherwise hold accountable Al-Kashif and Al-Azm, both of whom are in Egyptian jails right now. Speaking of Al-Azm in jail, here is video of him in jail, serving healthy portions of food (wearing white headband). The video was posted on November 6, 2012, approximately two weeks after he was arrested in Nasr City.

Al-Azm appears to be having a good time, despite being a suspect in the Benghazi attack:
