New Benghazi Documents Show While SEALs Were Still Fighting, White House Was Already Trying to Link the Attack to YouTube
US Hero David Ubben Suffered 20 Hours in Benghazi Before Help Arrived – While Obama Called YouTube & Went to Campaign in Las Vegas
Diplomatic security agent David Ubben, like former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, ran into the Special Mission Compound (SMC) to help save US officials under siege in Benghazi. Ubben was struck by a mortar round that killed Woods and Doherty. His leg was shredded. Ubben was forced to wait twenty hours before a plane was sent to pick him up.

New documents released this week show the Obama White House was working to link the terror attack to a YouTube video — WHILE AMERICAN HEROES WERE STILL TRAPPED ON THE ROOF.
The White House reached out to YouTube just three hours after the initial reports of the attack — Before they had even recovered Ambassador Stevens’s body.
The documents detail that only three hours after the initial attack on U.S. personnel in Benghazi, the White House contacted YouTube in an apparent effort to initially blame the assault on an obscure “Pastor John video,” rather than filmmaker Nakoula “Mark” Basseley Nakoula. The administration falsely claimed that Nakoula’s video, “Innocence of Muslims,” provoked the attack. The email also references the involvement of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (Judicial Watch, through separate litigation, previously uncovered documents that show Obama White House officials set Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi response).
