Libyan President: Anti-Islam Film Had Nothing To Do With 9/11 Attacks in Benghazi

He's trying to spell it out for the White House, even noting that a legitimate response to the film would have come six months earlier, when the film was first released and made available online


The anti-Islam film trailer that the White House has repeatedly blamed for sparking unrest in the Middle East had nothing to do with the attack that led to the death of  U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, that nation's president told NBC News.

Libyan President Mohamed Magarief said the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, which also resulted in the deaths of three other Americans, was more likely pegged to the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
