Since the Obama Administration tends to obfuscate the TRUTH about Benghazi and the TERROR attack against the compound, Bret Baier of Fox News did an in depth investigation of the attack on September 11, 2012 on the Benghazi compound.

Libya: Ambassador Stevens warned in June that jihadists were “targeting the Christians surpervising the management of the consulate” and that “Islamic extremism” was rising
And the Obama Administration still had the gall to claim it was a spontaneous attack. “Amb. Stevens Reported ‘Targeted and Discriminate’ Attacks Before 9/11,” by AWR Hawkins for Breitbart, October 19 (thanks to Jayke):
Reps. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) have released State Dept documents that show Ambassador Christopher Stevens clearly expressed concerns about security months before his death.The documents, 166 pages in total, contain a cable signed by Stevens and dated Aug 8. In that cable, Stevens wrote of how Benghazi had teetered from “trepidation to euphoria and back” through a “series of violent incidents.” And he took pains to point out that the incidents were not spontaneous outbursts, but “organized” attacks.
Stevens put it this way: “What we have seen are not random crimes of opportunity, but rather targeted and discriminate attacks.”
Another cable that bore Stevens’ signature was dated Sept 11 — the very day on which he was later killed. In this cable, Stevens expressed his concern about “growing frustration” in the Benghazi area and “growing problems with security” around the consulate.
Stevens explicitly mentioned the Libyan police and security forces that were guarding the U.S. consulate. He said those forces “were too weak” to keep the site secure.
These cables and the concerns expressed in them were nothing new. In late June, following attacks earlier that month, Stevens had written that the attackers “seemed to be targeting the Christians supervising the management of the consulate” and that “Islamic extremism appeared to be on the rise in eastern Libya.”
In other words, months before the Sept 11 attacks took place, spontaneous uprisings were ruled out. The attack on Benghazi was “targeted and discriminate.”
According to Krauthammer, the Obama administration delayed announcing the news primarily to protect the president’s image on foreign policy.
“They had two reasons to lie,” Krauthammer said. “The first reason was the fact that the Sept. 11 attack occurred a week after they just spent four days in Charlotte dancing on the grave of bin Laden. Remember, this is their single foreign policy achievement.
Look at the Arab spring. It’s all in collapse. They got one thing to argue, and they sure argued it, where they made the point again and again and again with that ridiculous slogan from Vice President [Biden], ‘bin laden dead, GM alive,’ because what Libya said, what it was proclaiming to the world and the reason the attack was launched in the first place was to say, ‘bin Laden dead, al-Qaida alive.’ That is what has happened as a result of leading from behind in Libya.”
“The second thing is, and I heard from this from liberal colleagues on some of the other shows I’ve done, is, ‘Well, how could they have done this? Why would they be lying? Wouldn’t they know it would come out?’” Krauthammer said. “And the answer is no. They saw what the mainstream media did right after the attack. And you know what they did — they spent three days attacking Mitt Romney for a statement he issued the next day, in which he denounced what the Cairo embassy released, the apologetic statement that was made.”
“So the media went ahead and spent three days ignoring the attack, ignoring the implications and concentrating always on that,” he continued. “So they think they got the media in their pocket. The election is coming up. They simply have to run out the clock, and they’ll be scot-free. They’ll be home free. And that is what they thought. However, it was you and others and Bret Baier and Fox which kept the story alive, because we kept finding out what really happened. And now the mainstream media had been shamed to covering it themselves.”
