Well-known author and Islamic terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel suggested over the weekend that the full story on the Benghazi attacks has not yet been released. Gabriel made the suprising comments on Fox News when asked about her reaction to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s recent admission that his department had spoken with President Obama only once the night of the attacks.
“As somebody working with the intelligence community, I knew that information,” Gabriel said. “And more information is going to come out regarding Benghazi attack that will really leave people amazed and shocked how we have been conducting, and are conducting attacks or plans, or projects regarding how we are defending the country. People are going to be very surprised.”
The September attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. After months of delays, hearings are being held to uncover the facts behind what occurred that night.
“This president has not taken national security seriously, has not been coordinating well or listening to advisors,” Gabriel said. “There are times when you can do PR campaigns, in front of the cameras, but it’s another story what is happening behind the scenes.”
Gabriel also discussed the controversy surrounding the use of unmanned drones and the Obama administration’s revelation that Americans can be targeted, noting the hypocrisy of Bush administration critics about targeting terrorists. Gabriel said she is all for drone attacks and feels they are effective in taking out specific targets in today’s type of war.
