On tonight’s Special Report, Bret Baier reported on an exclusive breaking news alert: intelligence sources are convinced the Mideast attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was directly tied to Al Qaeda.

Catherine Herridge reported that they believe that Sufyan Ben Qumu (whose name has also been transliterated as Sofiane Ibrahim Gammu) was likely involved in the attack, and even may have led the attack on the consulate.

Qumu – a Libyan – was released from the US prison at Guantanamo Bay in 2007 and transferred to Libyan custody under the condition that he would be kept in jail. He wasn’t.

According to his Gitmo files, he was also tied to 9/11 financiers, and his alias is “found on a list of probable Al Qaeda personnel receiving monthly stipends and family support.”

The administration cannot acknowledge this without admitting failure in Libya, not to mention the fact that Obama does not want to have to take the necessary actions that this would demand. Libya cannot go after al Qaeda on its own, and would need US ground forces, but to Obama, that smacks of colonialism. He won't do it, so he'll obfuscate and have his spokespeople deny that it was planned until after the election, when he will be free to do whatever he wants.

Well they better do something quick to get a handle on this because the flames of Islamo-fascist rage are flaring up in Pakistan and Afghanistan as we speak.

Drudge has a headline saying our Embassy in Pakistan is under siege.
