Algeria BP Attack Terrorists
Also Took Part in Benghazi Attack

The London Telegraph
Terrorists who laid siege to Amenas gas plant in Algeria also took part in the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed the American ambassador to Libya, it was claimed on Wednesday.

An Algerian security official told the New York Times that three of the surviving terrorists said they were aided by Egyptian extremists who were involved in the September 11 attack on the US consulate in eastern Libya.

The Egyptians were reportedly all killed during the special forces raid on the gas plant and Hillary Clinton, the outgoing Secretary of State, said on Wednesday the US was still investigating the link.

"This information is coming from the Algerian government related to their questioning of certain of the terrorists that they took alive," Mrs. Clinton said as she testified about the Libyan attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

She added that there was "no doubt" that the Algerian terrorists had been armed with weapons obtained from Libya.

The link between the two major terrorist attacks was claimed as it emerged that one of the Egyptian militants killed in Algeria was a former driver for BP who provided key inside knowledge.

Security sources claimed that the attackers gained inside knowledge of the plant from an unnamed former worker who resigned from BP a year ago. He was reportedly killed along with 28 other hostage-takers...

Further information about the militants came as The Daily Telegraph uncovered a video of them training in the desert more than a year before their attack.

The attackers were led by Mohamed Lamine Boucheneb, who was killed on the second day of the siege by Algerian helicopter gun ships.

The nine-minute video features his "katiba," or fighting unit, called the Movement of Sons of the Sahara for Islamic Justice.

It is accompanied by a soundtrack of Islamic songs that extol the virtues of martyrdom, and shows 15 militants wearing camouflage clothing and turbans as they train in the desert driving four Toyota pickup trucks and a four wheeled drive vehicle similar to the ones described as being used in the Amenas attack.

Boucheneb is the only fighter whose face is not masked and he can be seen parading in front of his troops.

A voice-over calls for the young people of Algeria to overthrow their government, pitting it as a tale of Muslims fighting imperialists.


Editor's Note: And this, Mrs. Clinton, is why it certainly does matter!...
