Issa Tells CIA: Plan for Massive Benghazi Probe

Escalating his investigation of the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi last year, Rep. Darrell Issa warned CIA and other government officials Wednesday to lawyer-up in preparation for a massive probe.
 
The California Republican who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee sent letters Wednesday suggesting that some witnesses lawyer up before being called to testify, The Hill reported. He also suggested that some witnesses should be prepared for retaliation from their employer, depending on their responses.
 

“Some witnesses may be required to retain personal counsel to represent them before the committee and in the event the agency subsequently retaliates against them for cooperating with the committee’s investigation,” the California Republican who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee said in separate letters to the CIA, State Department, and Pentagon.

Issa said some witnesses have already been cooperating with the investigation into the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans on Sept. 11, 2012, the Hill reported.

 

“During the course of the investigation, numerous individuals have approached the committee with information related to the attack,” he wrote in the letters.

Benghazi; The Saga Continues

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Beyond the fact that has come out that both Barack and Hillary were both AWOL, terrorism expert Bridgette Gabriel tells of surprises yet to be revealed regarding the Benghazi attack:

Gee, I wonder how accurate our original analysis will end up being. For some of us, it may not be that surprising.  At the time, people said we were crazy conspiracy nuts. Well, feel free to reread my article from last October, Benghazi, The Cover Up. What time did I say Panetta met with the president? Oh that’s right; 5 PM. Panetta confirmed just last week, that he met with the president once at 5 and had no more contact with Obama.

How convenient that if this all comes out so long after the election.

Benghazigate vs Watergate

The Nixon Tapes (Watergate) v. the Obama Tapes (Benghazi)

by:

Many of you are too young to remember the Watergate Hearings. They were on TV  all day, every day. The Democrats wanted to rub our faces in the scandal. After  President Nixon’s resignation, Vice-President Gerald Ford pardoned the former  president. This didn’t sit well with the American people. In the end, we got  Jimmy Carter.

The June 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at  the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C., was covered up by the Nixon  administration. The scandal eventually led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon on August 9, 1974. The scandal also resulted in the indictment, trial, conviction, and imprisonment of 43 people, including dozens of Nixon’s  top administration officials.

In July 1973, as evidence mounted against the president’s staff about the break-in at the Democratic headquarters, it was revealed that President Nixon had recorded many conversations in his office. Recordings from these tapes implicated the president, revealing he had attempted to cover up the break-in.  Before long, and after a lot of legal stonewalling from the Nixon Administration, the Supreme Court ruled that the president had to hand over the tapes to government investigators; he ultimately complied.

Now it seems that there are Obama tapes of the Benghazi attacks. Will they be released, or will Obama and Co. stonewall through the courts to keep them under wraps arguing Executive Privilege, Separation of Powers, and Checks and Balances  like Nixon did?

Here’s the latest from Fox News:

Sean  Hannity was debating liberal Juan Williams Tuesday on the Benghazi massacre.  Hannity revealed this on the audio tapes of Tyrone Woods begging for air support on 9-11, “My sources tell me they’re pretty damning, Juan. They’re begging for help.”

Tyrone Woods was screaming for air support and Barack Obama did nothing. Then he lied about it.

Hannity later said there are three tapes the Obama administration is holding onto including audio of Tyrone Woods begging for air support.

Will the press in 2012 be as relentless as the press was in 1973 and 1974  when it reported on Watergate, the tapes, and Nixon not making the tapes available?

Will we find portions of the Benghazi tapes erased like the infamous 18½  minute erasure in one of the tapes that some people speculate had recorded  incriminating information?

The media have been protecting President Obama for nearly four years. If a Republican President were in office, the media would be in attack mode. So far,  President Obama is not worried because his media friends have lost their  journalistic fire. Truth no longer matters to them.

Update by the Common Constitutionalist:

Glenn Beck reports the he has extremely credible and well-sourced proof that 2 large media outlets, one being a major network, have emails proving the Obama White House gave orders to “stand down” during the terror attack in Benghazi. An order to “Stand Down” to those who were ready and fully prepared to put down the terror attack and possibly rescue those who were eventually murdered.

So ready were they, that the terrorists were targeted and “painted” with lasers to allow for laser guided munitions to take them out. Yet, evidently, they were ordered to “stand down”.

Beck stated emphatically that these emails must be released to the public so we may learn the truth. These media outlets are holding them and so far have not released the emails.

He went on to state that if they don’t release them, he will publicly expose the outlets and do so before the election.

Called It Off

More than a few people need to go to prison over Benghazigate, including those in the press who are aiding and abetting this administrations cover up.

While reading this article, assuming you can think of anything beyond seething anger over the needless American deaths, notice how the consulate has magically changed to a CIA compound and CIA safehouse. HMMMMM. Where have heard that before?

Bombshell:  Benghazi Targets Painted, Air Support Overhead – Obama Calls Off  Strike

by:

In piecing together the details of the Benghazi attack up the U.S. consulate,  it is becoming clear that there were U.S. Special Operations forces on the  ground, at least two drones overhead and lasers being used to paint at least one  target.  The question then becomes, if these things were in place for a strike  against attackers, who called it off?  There can only be one answer, the  commander-in-chief Barack Obama.

Fox News reports on the laser being used to paint the  target:

At that point, they called again for military support and help because they  were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There  were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the  compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In  fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a  heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security  officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested  back-up support from a Spectre gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special  Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground  involved in intense firefights.

This went on for four hours and the White House was able to watch this all  take place live.  Two drones were above recording what was taking place and it  seems one was called in to relieve the other, presumably because of fuel issues.  A former Delta operator over at BlackFive writes:

Having spent a good bit of time nursing a GLD (ground Laser Designator) in  several garden spots around the world, something from the report jumped out at  me.

One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that  Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a  briefing pointer laser. You do not “paint” a target until the weapons  system/designator is synched; which means that the AC130 was on station.

Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH  situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on  information directly from the target area.

If the AC130 never left Sigonella (as Penetta says) that means that the  Predator that was filming the whole thing was armed.

If that SEAL was actively “painting” a target; something was on station to  engage! And the decision to stand down goes directly to POTUS!

There is also the issue of the former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods and a small team  that ignored orders to stand down after they requested permission to go and  help.

Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and  his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they  informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and  requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they  were again told to “stand down.”

Woods and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the  consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The rescue team  from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the consulate and Sean Smith,  who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.

CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood denied claims that requests for support  were turned down.

“We can say with confidence that the Agency reacted quickly to aid our  colleagues during that terrible evening in Benghazi,” she said. “Moreover, no  one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to  the contrary are simply inaccurate.  In fact, it is important to remember how  many lives were saved by courageous Americans who put their own safety at risk  that night-and that some of those selfless Americans gave their lives in the  effort to rescue their comrades.”

I can’t help but think that this sounds, at least with the information that  we are getting, like much of the response to the attacks of September 11, which  was no response.  Even more disturbing is what BlackFive writes, ““This is  bigger than Watergate!… The worst has to be the team on the ground  knowing that the President just left you to die.“

All of this was responded to by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Thursday.   He said, “The U.S. military did not get involved during the attack on the U.S.  mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month because officials did not have  enough information about what was going on before the attack was  over.”

Just how much information did you need? The White House had emails.  They had forces on the ground,  drones overhead, a live feed, painted targets.  For four hours nothing was done  while the consulate was attacked.  There was a Special Operations team operating  in Central Europe that could have been called upon, but weren’t, and could have  flown there in less than two hours.  But none of this was done.

It is looking more and more as though this was not only a planned attack, but  also that either the White House was either negligent and irresponsible in their “non-response” or complicit.

Breaking News!

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack several hours later was denied by U.S. officials — who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11. 

Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to “stand down.” 

Woods and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight. 

At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators. 

A Special Operations team, or CIF which stands for Commanders in Extremis Force, operating in Central Europe had been moved to Sigonella, Italy, but they too were told to stand down. A second force that specializes in counterterrorism rescues was on hand at Sigonella, according to senior military and intelligence sources. According to those sources, they could have flown to Benghazi in less than two hours. They were the same distance to Benghazi as those that were sent from Tripoli. Specter gunships are commonly used by the Special Operations community to provide close air support. 

According to sources on the ground during the attack, the special operator on the roof of the CIA annex had visual contact and a laser pointing at the Libyan mortar team that was targeting the CIA annex. The operators were calling in coordinates of where the Libyan forces were firing from. 

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday that there was not a clear enough picture of what was occurring on the ground in Benghazi to send help. 

“There’s a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here,” Panetta said Thursday. “But the basic principle here … is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on.” 

U.S. officials argue that there was a period of several hours when the fighting stopped before the mortars were fired at the annex, leading officials to believe the attack was over. 

Fox News has learned that there were two military surveillance drones redirected to Benghazi shortly after the attack on the Consulate began. They were already in the vicinity. The second surveillance craft was sent to relieve the first drone, perhaps due to fuel issues. Both were capable of sending real time visuals back to U.S. officials in Washington, D.C. Any U.S. official or agency with the proper clearance, including the White House Situation Room, State Department, CIA, Pentagon and others, could call up that video in real time on their computers. 

Tyrone Woods was later joined at the scene by fellow former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty, who was sent in from Tripoli as part of a Global Response Staff or GRS that provides security to CIA case officers and provides countersurveillance and surveillance protection. They were killed by a mortar shell at 4 a.m. Libyan time, nearly seven hours after the attack on the Consulate began — a window that represented more than enough time for the U.S. military to send back-up from nearby bases in Europe, according to sources familiar with Special Operations. Four mortars were fired at the annex. The first one struck outside the annex. Three more hit the annex. 

A motorcade of dozens of Libyan vehicles, some mounted with 50 caliber machine guns, belonging to the February 17th Brigades, a Libyan militia which is friendly to the U.S., finally showed up at the CIA annex at approximately 3 a.m. An American Quick Reaction Force sent from Tripoli had arrived at the Benghazi airport at 2 a.m. (four hours after the initial attack on the Consulate) and was delayed for 45 minutes at the airport because they could not at first get transportation, allegedly due to confusion among Libyan militias who were supposed to escort them to the annex, according to Benghazi sources. 

The American special operators, Woods, Doherty and at least two others were part of the Global Response Staff, a CIA element, based at the CIA annex and were protecting CIA operators who were part of a mission to track and repurchase arms in Benghazi that had proliferated in the wake of Muammar Qaddafi’s fall. Part of their mission was to find the more than 20,000 missing MANPADS, or shoulder-held missiles capable of bringing down a commercial aircraft. According to a source on the ground at the time of the attack, the team inside the CIA annex had captured three Libyan attackers and was forced to hand them over to the Libyans. U.S. officials do not know what happened to those three attackers and whether they were released by the Libyan forces. 

Fox News has also learned that Stevens was in Benghazi that day to be present at the opening of an English-language school being started by the Libyan farmer who helped save an American pilot who had been shot down by pro-Qaddafi forces during the initial war to overthrow the regime. That farmer saved the life of the American pilot and the Ambassador wanted to be present to launch the Libyan rescuer’s new school.

Benghazi…The Cover Up

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The President is lying and covering up, possibly to the point of treason, as is the Vice President, the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense and maybe more.

Less than one week after the September 11 attack in Benghazi, I reported (with research provided by Glenn Beck and The Blaze) that ambassador Stephens was probably CIA and was gunrunning; providing arms from our government to the rebels in Libya who were either Al Qaeda or an affiliate group. He was also providing weapons to Syria, brokered through Turkey.

As you read this account, I remind you to recall the lies put out by this White House regarding the YouTube video.

New evidence has emerged, via memos and e-mails, which prove the validity of the attacks on the CIA safe house. Don’t believe reports that this was a consulate or even an embassy safe house. Rest assured, this was a CIA safe house.

At 12:54 PM the White House situation room received an e-mail that someone was watching the CIA safe house in Benghazi.

So what was the ambassador doing at that safe house on September 11, in Benghazi, terrorist central, knowing the house was being watched and also knowing he was a possible target?

Well, he was having dinner with the General Counsel of Turkey. I’ll remind you that Turkey was the go-between for weapons transfers from Stevens to Syria. Reports are that some 400 tons of weapons have been moved into Syria.

Coincidentally, President Obama is a friend of the Prime Minister of Turkey. As a matter of fact, when Obama was elected in 2008, he called his friend, the Prime Minister, before calling any other world leader. A little odd, don’t you think?

As an aside, the Turkish prime minister advocates both Shariah law and an Islamic Caliphate. Quite an interesting bedfellow for a president of the United States.

So at the same time the White House receives the e-mail that the safe house is being watched the ambassador and Turkish General Counsel are having dinner.

One hour later, the Turkish General Counsel leaves completely unharmed and unmolested, through the front gate.

Why was the General Counsel there? What did they discuss? Were the terrorists working with Turkey to take out Stevens and on whose orders?

Was the Turkish official sent in to effectively hold Stevens their while preparations were finalized for the attack? It seems to me that the General Counsel or the Turkish government must’ve been involved or he would not have been allowed to leave unscathed. Those watching the house must have known who he was.

About an hour after the Turkish official left, the attack began.

And what about the drone? Someone authorized a drone be sent over the area. Although we don’t know when it was authorized, we now know there was live video feed, real-time, of the attack. The video feed from the drone was sent to the White House situation room, the CIA at Langley, the State Department and DOD.

The Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, had a meeting with Obama and Biden around 5 PM, almost a full hour after the safe house attack at 4:05 PM and three hours after the original warning. The meeting took place in the Oval Office, not the situation room. By all accounts the president never made an appearance in the situation room. But what’s the big deal? It was only 4 Americans being killed by terrorists. It’s not like we were taking down Osama bin Laden or anything.

What did the president do? Did he stick around to coordinate rescue and counterattack efforts? Apparently not. Reports are that he went up to the residence and went to bed.

By the way, there was no counterattack authorized. The US military was standing by at several locations with troops, special ops personnel, ships, helicopters and assorted other aircraft. No order was ever given for any of the above to be utilized in either rescue or counterattack. Why? No one knows, yet. No one may ever know.

At 6:07 PM another e-mail comes into the White House situation room that Ansar al-Sharia claimed responsibility for the attack.

If this investigation is permitted to continue we will surely find that the Al Qaeda affiliate, Ansar al-Sharia, is the same group ambassador/CIA agent Stevens had provided weapons to. A cruel irony; being murdered by the same weapons that you provided to your murderers.

This is why Glenn Beck says the White House and everyone else who is culpable for this atrocity is covering it up.

Obviously ambassador Stevens could not have acted on his own.

By the way, the gunrunning still continues, with a verified story from Russia, that Syrian rebels now possess United States Stinger missiles.

Like their counterparts in Egypt and Libya, the Syrian “rebels” are neither rebels nor freedom fighters. They are, in fact, connected to or are wholly owned subsidiaries of Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Even the New York Times has confirmed that the U.S. is using the Muslim Brotherhood to arm the Syrian “rebel” faction.

Claire Lopez, a former CIA officer, told Beck she believes that the Obama administration is helping the Muslim Brotherhood come to power in Egypt, Libya and Syria. She said that next maybe Jordan and/or Saudi Arabia.

Where does that leave America’s greatest ally, Israel?

If the full story of this event is allowed to see the light of day, those responsible for the inaction and cover up , including possibly the president, will and should be indicted and imprisoned.

Rice should Resign

King: ‘Susan Rice Should Resign’

By Katrina Trinko at NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE

comments, as always, by yours truly [ ]

House Homeland Security Committee chairman Pete King is calling on U.N. ambassador Susan Rice to resign over her comments on the Sunday talk shows September 16 regarding the Libyan attacks.

“I think Susan Rice should resign. She is America’s foreign policy spokesman to the world as ambassador to the U.N.,” King, a Republican congressman from New York, tells National Review Online. [ Who do you suppose Obama might choose to replace her, Louis Farrakhan? I heard the Blind Sheikh will be available soon. Maybe he could represent this administration? He’d fit right in at the U.N. ]

Rice appeared on five Sunday morning shows five days after the attacks.  On ABC’s This Week, she said, “Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” despite the fact that U.S. officials knew terrorism was involved within 24 hours after the attack. [ Actually, the State Department knew well in advance. Blaming Rice is ridiculous. She was towing the administration line. ]

“Very nice person, very smart,” King says of Rice, “but the fact is she gave out information which was either intentionally or unintentionally misleading and wrong and there should be consequences for that. And I don’t see how she didn’t know how that information was wrong. What she could have and should have said was the final word isn’t in yet, certainly strong evidence that there was strong terrorist involvement, [but identifying] the exact nature it’ll  take us a few more days. That would have been legitimate.”

[ Okay, can we just put this, “nice person” crap away. It has nothing to do with anything, and how many “nice people” will sit there and lie to whole world five separate times. I’ve heard that about Obama also. He’s a nice person, just misguided. I personally can’t name a single marxist, communist or anticolonialist I would consider to be “nice”. ]

King also called for an investigation into what was known before the attack. “This warrants a full investigation,” he says. “I believe there should be a congressional investigation. I think there should be an internal investigation.” [ Yes, like the recent investigation into the “Fast and Furious” scandal that basically exonerated Eric Holder. I’m sure he’s a “nice person” too. ]

Benghazi, he adds, “was a hotbed of al-Qaeda activity, of militia activity, of terrorist activity. We knew that the facilities that we were using there were not adequately fortified. These were temporary, basically private residences which had almost none of the protections that a consulate should have.” [ Has anyone, save for a few of us, even asked what the ambassador was doing there? You may wish to re-read “Benghazi was no Coincidence”  ]

“To allow the American ambassador to go there,” he continues, “ to allow us to keep records or documentation there or anything  in such an unsecure and such a dangerous area and such unsecure facilities with such little security appears to be gross negligence, and may be criminal negligence.” [ Unless it was not a consulate, but a CIA safe house ]

He also criticized the administration’s reluctance to call the attacks terrorism. “Either they intentionally mislead the American people or they were extremely uninformed,” King remarks. “Neither excuse is very good. From the start, I can see them saying we’re not certain what caused it, but the presumption from the start should have been that it was a terrorist attack or the terrorist were heavily involved.” [ I wish someone would just come out and state the obvious; This administration, from the top down, is filled with bad people who don’t appear at all concerned with our security, or that of our allies ]

Obama, he speculates, had political reasons to avoid calling it terrorism. “What I believe now is that the president is so fixated on convincing the American people that we have defeated al-Qaeda and that al-Qaeda is no longer a real threat by saying this was a terrorist attack, or by acknowledge a terrorist attack,  it would be looked upon as a defeat for his policies against al-Qaeda,” King says. [ No need for speculation Mr. King. It’s a fact ]

Benghazi was no Coincidence

Once again, You’ve been Lied to

by: the Common Constitutionalist

(As reports surface, the following article has been updated several times since I started writing it days ago.)

So, here’s what we’ve been told by the major media.

The night of Sept. 11, 2012, protesters are rioting outside and opened fire on the consulate building in Benghazi, Libya. At the same time from all 3 sides and within minutes the perimeter of the consulate was breeched.

Witnesses say that the, at least 30 guards, put up no resistance to the breech and fled.

A short time later the consulate was engulfed in flames.

The consulate staff raced to a supposedly secret safe house about a mile away.

The security staff then regrouped and tried to regain control of the consulate. They failed and were forced to fall back.

About an hour later, back up arrives to attempt to take back the main building. Meanwhile the ‘safe house’ is set ablaze. The attackers were evidently armed with automatic weapons, RPG’s and laser guided mortars capable of pinpoint accuracy. The 2 former Navy SEALs (one being Sean Smith) of ambassador Stevens security detail were killed in the firefight.

Around 1:15 am Stevens body was taken to a hospital. He was D.O.A.

So that’s what we all heard through the media. It was totally spontaneous. Nothing was planned in advance and all due a Youtube video.

Now for some oddities; things that don’t add up.

Ambassador Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential. His security staff decided the Benghazi trip was safe.

Why did he and his security people go into Benghazi, a well known hotspot, in an unmarked, unarmored car? Diplomats overseas always travel in armored cars or SUV’s. He also had no advance team.

Patrick Kennedy, Under-Secretary at the State Department, said he was convinced the assault was planned due to its extensive nature and the proliferation of weapons, yet the White House, the American ambassador to the U.N. et al, stated that the attack was absolutely the result of the video that no one saw. The video was released in June. Why, all of the sudden, was such a fuss made of it, months later?

Update: It has been confirmed publically, this was a planned terrorist attack.

The former Navy SEALs (both were originally said to be Marines) worked for the State Department and were Ambassador Steven’s security. They both were killed along side Stevens. One of them, Sean Smith, sent out a rather odd message. He posted that he had seen suspicious people.

Update: The CIA /SEALs may not have been his security.

His message read, “Assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures.” By “our police”, he meant local Libyan police that he apparently thought they could trust. The message was not the oddity; it was where it was posted. He didn’t the try to hail the embassy in Tripoli or any military or State Department. The post was to an online gaming website. Smith was known as “Vile Rat” on the site. This is the type of front that might be used by a CIA operative to reach out for help to other operatives.

Update: Two former SEALS, Tyrone Woods, 41, and Glen Doherty, 42, were not employed by the State Department diplomatic security office and instead were what is known as personal service contractors who had other duties related to security.

So why is the administration so hell bent on having everyone believe the attacks were due to the video when the new president of Libya is saying the exact opposite?

There was, according to witnesses, little defense put up by the 30 or more local guards meant to protect the staff. Ali Fetori, a 59-year-old accountant who lives near by, said: “The security people just all ran away and then the people in charge were the young men with guns and bombs.”

The building then came under fire from heavy weapons. “I don’t know how they found the place to carry out the attack. It was planned, the accuracy with which the mortars hit us was too good for any ordinary revolutionaries,” said Captain Obeidi. “It began to rain down on us, about six mortars fell directly on the path to the villa.” Villa? It has been portrayed as an established consulate. Wrongo! It was a rented house with bars on the windows.

Stevens lived in Tripoli. The embassy was in Tripoli. So why did he go to Benghazi. Benghazi was a bad place. That’s where all the radicals are. Where was he before? In Tripoli? It was reported he had just come back from a trip to Germany, Austria and Sweden.

Stevens was the US government’s representative to the opposition National Transitional Council (the rebels) during the 2011 uprising against the government of Muammar Gaddafi and had previously been the second-ranking US diplomat in Libya.

Prior to this event, one of Steven’s security men ( a former Navy SEAL) was interviewed and he said he was, “ On an intelligence mission to round up dangerous weapons in the war-torn nation”. There’s a problem with that statement. Diplomatic security doesn’t do that. They are charged with security and protection only. So who does do that? Former Navy SEALs who are now CIA.

So what weapons could the CIA be that concerned with, to feel the need to “round them up”?

If you recall, last year the Obama administration said it would help the rebel forces. When asked by Brian Williams, Obama said, “he had not ruled out the supply of weapons to the rebels but he had also not ruled it in.” I guess he did rule it in.

Benghazi was ground zero for the rebel forces opposing Gadhafi. It was confirmed a good deal of the rebels were actually al-Qaeda. Did we, in fact, arm al Qaeda? Looks like the Obama administration may have done just that.

There were reports circulating that we were now on the same side as al Qaeda. They (al Qaeda) wanted the ouster of Gadhafi also. The leader of the Libyan rebels admitted there were many al Qaeda fighting with them. The Rebel leader also admitted that he fought against the U.S. in Afghanistan. We actually captured him in 2002, but then released him. The enemy of our supposed enemy is not our friend.

Now there have been glowing reports of ambassador Stevens. He had a heart of gold and loved, according the New York Times, the regular Libyan people. He was portrayed as just a regular guy. How many regular guys sneak into warring countries under cover of darkness in cargo ships or ride around in unarmed cars at night with CIA operatives?

Is that the training regimen for all our diplomats? No? Then who was this guy? CIA, possibly? Could he be that regions CIA weapons dealer? Could he have been the man that brokered the deal to supply arms to the rebels? Items like the missiles that took down Gadhafi’s air force.

So now the Middle East is on fire so close to the presidential election. Where did all the weapons we supplied go? Who has all the weapons? What if the electorate discovers our government-supplied terrorists with weapons? Boy that wouldn’t look good.

Could it be that the CIA found a cache of weapons, or an informant that claimed knowledge of there whereabouts in Benghazi, or near by? Could it be that whomever has the weapons we so desperately needed to recover insisted on seeing the agent that brokered the original deal; agent Stevens?

So Stevens flys back to Libya on short notice, gets into an unmarked unarmored car at night, so as to not draw undue attention and he goes to the meeting. Maybe he was followed. Maybe something else goes awry. Is that how they end up at the safe house? This is the time Sean Smith sends his message to the gaming website. Is this really the time to do some online gaming? Of course not. The message to other CIA ops, get us the hell out of here!

They were likely followed to the “safe house”. The attack was designed to do exactly what it did. Kill the CIA agents.

What about the riots; the protests? They were called in by the terrorists to smoke out the agents.

Imagine if it were to come out that Obama supplied the weapons to the terrorists that killed our own people. It wouldn’t sit well, I think.

Of course this is just a theory, but it’s a lot more plausible than spontaneous riots, coincidentally on 9/11, taking out our ambassador and just three others.

How odd, that with all that mayhem only 4 people died, and all American. Huh.

Don’t go looking for the mainstream press to poke around in this hot zone. We might only learn the truth if this were the Bush administration.
