That's what this story seems to suggest, which goes far beyond merely scapegoating The Innocence Of Muslims for having triggered riots in Libya and elsewhere to deliberately advertising it throughout the Middle East to inflame Muslims to riot as cover for the jihadist attack on the Benghazi consulate:
Hillary Clinton and other State Department officials were warned against saying that an anti-Muslim video contributed to the the 2012 attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, a new email released on Friday reveals.
The warning came from the U.S. embassy in Tripoli, Libya, on September 14th, 2012, three days after the September 11th terrorist attack in which four Americans were killed.
“Our monitoring of the Libyan media and conversations with Libyans suggest that the films [sic] not as explosive of an issue here as it appears to be in other countries in the region,” the email said.
“And it is becoming increasingly clear that the series of events in Benghazi was much more terrorist attack than a protest which escalated into violence,” it continued. [emphasis added]
The Obama Regime WANTED widespread violence throughout the Middle East to overwhelm and distract from the fallout of al Qaeda/Ansar Al-Sharia attack in Benghazi, and so they globally publicized a silly YouTube video that had heretofore gather fewer than a dozen hits into a planetary sensation....and STILL didn't get the widespread violence throughout the Middle East that they wanted, which was why that silly mendacity never got off the ground as the coverup of Benghazigate that they wanted. A superfluity, ironically, since Team Messiah didn't really need a coverup given that the Obamedia did it for them by embargoing a scandal that would have created ripples all the way to the Klingon Empire if the party labels had been switched. And if it had happened on President Bush's watch? Forgetaboutit.
Here's the U.S. Tripoli Embassy email in question:
Colleagues, I mentioned to [redacted] this morning, and want to share with all of you, our view at the Embassy Tripoli that we must be cautious in our local messaging with regard to the inflammatory film trailer, adapting it to Libyan conditions. Our monitoring of the Libyan media and conversations with Libyans suggest that the films [sic] not as explosive an issue here as it appears to be in other countries in the region. The overwhelming majority of the FB comments and tweets we’ve received from Libyans since the Ambassador’s death have expressed deep sympathy, sorrow, and regret. They have expressed anger at the attackers, and emphasized that this attack does not represent Libyans or Islam.
Relatively few have even mentioned the inflammatory video. So if we post messaging about the video specifically, we may draw unwanted attention to it. And it is becoming increasingly clear that the series of events in Benghazi was much more terrorist attack than a protest which escalated into violence. It is our opinion that in our messaging, we want to distinguish, not conflate, the events in other countries with this well-planned attack by [Islamic Fundamental]ists. I have discussed this with [redacted] and he shares PAS’s view. [emphasis added]
Here's an even worse possibility: Maybe the Obama Regime pushed the YouTube vid not just to incite mob violence as camouflage for the jihadist strike in Benghazi, but to build upon it. To build a massive, worldwide, pro-jihadist propaganda offensive against "Islamophobia" by demonizing not just this lone, heretofore anonymous filmmaker but by association anybody who refuses to be dhimmized and bow the knee to Allah and tells the truth about Islam - particularly Jews and Christians.
It would certainly add an even more sinister context to this famous Obama quote:
It just goes to reinforce one of the chief axioms of The Age Of The One: There is no Obama scandal so evil and wicked and despicable that it cannot turn out to have been even worse than you thought it was.
And Mrs. Clinton is eye-brow deep in this one.
