U.S. officials: Attack on consulate in Libya may have been planned - The Washington Post

According to US officials the attack may of been pre-planned.

The chain of events remains unclear, but Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said there is strong evidence that the attack was planned.

“This was a well-armed, well-coordinated event,” Rogers said in an interview on MSNBC. “It had both indirect and direct fire, and it had military maneuvers that were all part of this very organized attack.” Rogers referred to weapons that aimed directly at a target and those, such as rockets and mortars, that are fired without a direct line of sight.
Officials in Libya seem to be supporting the same view.

Wanis al-Sharif, Libya’s deputy interior minister, told reporters Wednesday that “among the protesters, there were some who infiltrated the march to start chaos.”
