This story is starting to look just like the Iran-Obama tit-for-tat about lying fact sheets.
(AFP) — Libya’s internationally recognised parliament said Tuesday it has uncovered “new elements” behind the 2012 assassination of the US ambassador when the American consulate was stormed in eastern city Benghazi.
“I have been tasked today with leading a team of inquiry,” Tareq Saqar al-Jeruchi, deputy head of the parliament’s security and defence committee, told AFP.
He said the team had “new elements on the real perpetrators of the attack” and would work closely with the FBI and Congressional commissions of inquiry, although he did not elaborate on the identities of the assailants.
A Libyan parliamentary delegation is to travel to the United States for consultations with members of Congress, Jeruchi said.
That was 3 days ago on April 8th. Yesterday, April 10th, this story was released.
Reports that the House of Representatives (HoR) have set up a committee to investigate the 11 September 2012 killing of US Ambassador Chris Steven and three other US diplomatic staff in Benghazi have been denied by a top HoR official, according to the Beida-based office of the Libyan news agency LANA.
Benghazi member Jalal Al-Shweidi, who chairs the Information and Culture Committee, said that no decision to establish a committee to look into the killing had been taken by the HoR, LANA reported.
Two days ago it was reported that Tariq Geroushi, the deputy chairman of the HoR’s Defence and National Security Committee, had been tasked by the House to lead a three-man team to investigate Steven’s death. He was quoted saying that he had new information about the killing and that the team would be collaborating with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). On his Facebook page, Geroushi, usually seen as well-informed about the HoR’s plans and decisions, republished the report adding a call to anyone with information about the attack to contact him.
I’ll be the first to tell you i have no further insight or knowledge as to which story is correct. But conflicting stories such as these tend to indicate that someone quickly got to Geroushi and told him to stand down. Not plausible you say? Libya has fallen into chaos and the U.S. cannot control the situation any longer. What if the U.S. has a CIA agent in control?
Enter General Khalifa Haftar. From ‘The New Yorker’
General Khalifa Haftar left his home in northern Virginia—where he had spent most of the previous two decades, at least some of that time working with the Central Intelligence Agency—and returned to Tripoli to fight his latest war for control of Libya.
Haftar’s force, which he calls the Libyan National Army, has taken much of the eastern half of the country, in an offensive known as Operation Dignity.

Do I have any proof that CIA plant Gen. Haftar got to Tariq Geroushi and stopped any investigation of ‘new evidence’ about the Benghazi attacks? No. Just pointing out the obvious. The story seems to have disappeared as soon as it came to life and the CIA has much on the line still to this day to see that the truth remains hidden.
