It Was Gun Running

Gee, I wonder where we first heard this? Last year when we knew and reported the gun running, we were called crazies and conspiracy kooks! The only thing they’re still missing is that Stevens was also probably CIA.

CNN  is reporting lawmakers are speculating on the possibility U.S. agencies  operating in the Benghazi compound attacked Sept. 11, 2012, were secretly  helping to transfer weapons from Libya, via Turkey, to the rebels in Syria.

That  possibility was first reported by WND two weeks after the Benghazi attack,  when the news agency cited Egyptian security officials who said murdered U.S.  Ambassador Christopher Stevens played a central role in arming and recruiting  rebels to fight Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

In November 2012, Middle Eastern security sources further described both the  U.S. mission and nearby CIA annex in Benghazi as an intelligence and planning  center for U.S. aid to the rebels, which included weapons shipments being  coordinated with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Many rebel fighters are openly members of terrorist organizations, including  al-Qaida.

The information may help determine what motivated the deadly attacks in  Benghazi.

The State Department told CNN it was helping the new Libyan government  destroy weapons deemed “damaged, aged or too unsafe retain” but denied it was  transferring weapons to other countries.

The State Department, however, clarified it “can’t speak for any other  agencies.”

The CIA would not comment to CNN on the weapons-transfer reports.

Meanwhile, clarification on the weapons transfers may have inadvertently come  through recent statements by a Libyan weapons dealer from a group hired to  provide security to the U.S. mission in Benghazi. The dealer told Reuters he has  helped ship weapons from Benghazi to the rebels fighting in Syria.

The detailed account may provide more circumstantial evidence the U.S.  Benghazi mission was secretly involved in procuring and shipping weapons to the  Syrian opposition before the deadly attack that killed the U.S. ambassador and  three other Americans.

In an interview  with Reuters published in June, Libyan warlord Abdul Basit Haroun declared  he is behind some of the biggest shipments of weapons from Libya to Syria. Most  of the weapons were sent to Turkey, where they were then smuggled into  neighboring Syria, he said.
