The REAL Reason Behind Benghazi Terrorist Attacks – obama Regime GunRunning To Their Jihadist Pals In Syria….


***UPDATED***

Ambassador Stevens was the point man for Obama to funnel arms to the Libya rebels first to take out Gaddafi, and now from Libya to Syria – through Turkey – to take out Assad.

It’s pretty compelling: Watch the video

*************************************************

President Obama’s once seemingly unstoppable march toward re-election hit what he might call “bumps in the road” in Benghazi, Libya, late on Sept. 11, 2012. It might be more accurate to describe the effect of the well-planned and -executed, military-style attack on a diplomatic facility there as the political equivalent of a devastating improvised explosive device on the myth of the unassailability of the Obama record as commander in chief.

Thanks to intrepid investigative reporting — notably by Bret Baier and Catherine Herridge at Fox News, Aaron Klein at WND.com and Clare Lopez at RadicalIslam.org — and information developed by congressional investigators, the mystery is beginning to unravel with regard to what happened that night and the reason for the subsequent, clumsy official cover-up now known as Benghazigate.

The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East. Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat J. Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the “opposition” in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.

Once Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown, Stevens was appointed ambassador to the new Libya run by Mr. Belhadj and his friends. Not surprisingly, one of the most important priorities for someone in that position would be to try to find and secure the immense amount of armaments that had been cached by the dictator around the country and systematically looted during and after the revolution.

One of the places in Libya most awash with such weapons in the most dangerous of hands is Benghazi. It now appears that Stevens was there — on a particularly risky day, with no security to speak of and despite now copiously documented concerns about his own safety and that of his subordinates — for another priority mission: sending arms recovered from the former regime’s stocks to the “opposition” in Syria. As in Libya, the insurgents are known to include al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups, including none other than Abdelhakim Belhadj.

Fox News has chronicled how the Al Entisar, a Libyan-flagged vessel carrying 400 tons of cargo, docked on Sept. 6 in the Turkish port of Iskenderun. It reportedly supplied both humanitarian assistance and arms — including deadly SA-7 man-portable surface-to-air missiles — apparently destined for Islamists, again including al Qaeda elements, in Syria.

What cries out for further investigation — and debate in the remaining days of this presidential election — is whether this shipment was part of a larger covert Obama effort to transfer weapons to our enemies that could make the Iran-Contra scandal, to say nothing of Operation Fast and Furious, pale by comparison.

Investigative journalist Aaron Klein has reported that the “consulate in Benghazi” actually was no such thing. He observes that although administration officials have done nothing to correct that oft-repeated characterization of the facility where the murderous attack on Stevens and his colleagues was launched, they call it a “mission.” What Mr. Klein describes as a “shabby, nondescript building” that lacked any “major public security presence” was, according to an unnamed Middle Eastern security official, “routinely used by Stevens and others to coordinate with the Turkish, Saudi and Qatari governments on supporting the insurgencies in the Middle East, most prominently the rebels opposing Assad’s regime in Syria.”

We know that Stevens‘ last official act was to hold such a meeting with an unidentified “Turkish diplomat.” Presumably, the conversation involved additional arms shipments to al Qaeda and its allies in Syria. It also may have involved getting more jihadi fighters there. After all, Mr. Klein reported last month that, according to sources in Egyptian security, our ambassador was playing a “central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.”

It gets worse. Last week, Center for Security Policy senior fellow and former career CIA officer Clare Lopez observed that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with the so-called “consulate” whose purpose has yet to be disclosed. As their contents were raided in the course of the attack, we may never know for sure whether they housed — and were known by the local jihadis to house — arms, perhaps administered by the two former Navy SEALs killed along with Stevens.

What we do know is that the New York Times — one of the most slavishly pro-Obama publications in the country — reported in an Oct. 14 article, “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster.”

In short, it seems President Obama has been engaged in gun-walking on a massive scale. The effect has been to equip America’s enemies to wage jihad not only against regimes it once claimed were our friends, but inevitably against us and our allies as well. That would explain his administration’s desperate and now failing bid to mislead the voters through the serial deflections of Benghazigate.

    I posted this to a friend and to Mitt Romney’s website on October 20th:
    ________________________________________________________________________

    I’ll go ‘ya one further. I think the “Ambassador” was set up by the Administration. He was intentionally sent to his death. We already know he was involved in arming the Al-Qaeda-backed rebels and therefore knew too much. Rather than wait for him to appear in front of a Congressional Committee next year after this all breaks down, they sent him in to Libya on the anniversary f the 9-11 attack and watched the five hour fire-fight from two overhead Predator drones and video-taped the whole thing. He was “removed” to prevent incriminating testimony regarding the President’s fostering of the Muslim Brotherhood’s take-over of the entire Middle East. It will take a LOT of explaining to convince me otherwise. Word is getting out slowly. There are too many details that don’t add up.

    As an Indian friend of mine says, “the rats are the first ones to abandon a sinking ship”. Let’s hope this one goes down for good.

    There seems to be a Saudi Connection between “Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour”
    the ex-Black Panther born Don Warden who was the go-between for some Saudi Sheiks who may have financed Frank Marshall Davis Jr.’s (AKA Barack Hussein Obama II) Harvard education. This is yet another reason for him to hide his educational records under Executive Order 13489, so people don’t have access to his connections. It would also explain his attachment to Islam and his meddling in the Middle East as well as his refusal to prosecute the slam-dunk case of voter intimidation against the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia.

    Nuts ain’t it?

    This guy IS transparent, he’s an Alinsky-trained Chicago-style Marxist agitator who’s INTENTION is to destroy America. If you haven’t seen Joel Gilbert’s video; “Dreams From My REAL Father”, I highly suggest that you get a copy and watch it. “Obama is the bas tard son of Chicago Communist writer Frank Marshall Davis and Stanley Ann Dunham. Frank Marshall Davis is both his biological father and his ideological one as well. Do you know that the now famous “Obama” logo is a recycled Weather Underground Organization (WUO) graphic from the 70’s and 80’s? Watch the video, this guy needs to be indicted, not elected.

      ABSOLUTELY. The thing that concerns me about this today is that they have been BUSTED, and now they’re cornered. A cornered pack of devils are a very dangerous thing, indeed. They know it and We know it. And now, I fully expect them to lay down some martial law on our butts to shut us up and to avoid further investigation and another so-called “election”.

      I’m ready.

      When it begins for them, It will begin for us.

      When it begins for us, it will come to an end for them.

      They drew the lines when we were just living our lives.

      We will hear them fire first. They will hear us fire last.

      When it comes to it it will be they who will bring it.

      It will be we who bring it to an end.

        Several of my best friends are attorneys and one of them describes the situation like this; “look at the map of the United States, The Progressives have divided us up into “Blue” and “Red” zones, the opposite of traditional Communists so they can appear to take the high ground to their base. The whole Country is “Red” except for the East and West coastal areas and concentrated spots of “Blue” in big cities where all the welfare and dependents live. The producers (food, energy, goods) are spread out into the “Red” areas and the non-producers are concentrated into kill zones and they don’t realize it”. I know he’s correct because of the type of law he practices and this could end up being a disaster for the country on one level and a resurrection on another. These people better watch out for the change they think they’re pushing for. They won’t like it when they get it no matter what the outcome.

        That paints quite the picture, and I think it’s an accurate one. Those evil beasts are first in line, which doesn’t bother me one bit. What bothers me, however, is that they are taking us all down with them. America is no longer the unified force for Freedom and Liberties. It’s an “Us against them” mentality, and believe me when I tell you that I despise them so deeply I can taste it. I will, with a clear conscience, encourage their demise and pray they rot and burn in that special place reserved for beasts like them. Even if I am the “collateral damage”.

    I have friends from Europe, the Middle East (Sunni, Shia and Jewish) and the “former” Soviet Union and they all see what’s coming and don’t like it either.

    • October 25, 2012 at 08:13

      The whole world is either laughing AT us or crying FOR us. Without America, there is no Freedom anywhere in the world. That beacon of hope and flame of freedom is forever extinguished today.

    o needs to have charges of treason brought on him and his administration for these deaths. They had sent guns to these muslim brothers of obama and we have 4 dead Americans who were not allowed to defend themselves. Any muslims I have had contact with when I lived in MI were all radical. Any muslim needs to be sent back to the middle east to practice their own form of government. Islam is a form of government, not a religion.

      “Islam is a form of government, not a religion.” . Without any doubt. The Mohammedans know it and use our form of Government and history of Religious tolerance to infiltrate our civilization and destroy it from within. 13 Centuries of history should be our guide.

        Apparently, half this Nation has not learned from history.

        It ticks me off to no end when someone tries to blame American interference in the middle east for islam’s hatred of us. America has existed a little over 200 years. islam has been spreading their terror against infidels for over 1600 years. They will NEVER stop, and now they have teamed up with the communists (socialists, marxists, liberals, progressives, environmentalists, et al) and overthrown the democrat party. They’ve built an army against us, many of whom are our own fellow countrymen. We’re in for one Hell of a fight, my Friend. Differentiating friend from foe will be tough in the very dark days ahead.

        “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” ~Marcus Tullius Cicero

      He should have been ripped off his throne and punished for treason a LONG time ago.

      Do you recall when Iran was flying direct flights from Iran, Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Jordan, Libya and Lebanon – Directly to Venezuala? They flew hundreds of thousands of islamic troops, weapons and nuclear materials directly to Venezuala (1500 miles off our coastline) under dark of night. All of the sudden, Venezuala has nukes. Those troops slithered their way through the panama canal and up through south America and mexico, right across our southern border. That is why obama regime refused to enforce our border laws. The obama regime trafficked weapons to those beasts via their fast & furious scheme and, when busted, suffered no consequences. He’s arming our islamic terrorist enemies (his allies). treason X10

    If Obama is found to be treasonous, do his name & photo get removed from ‘past presidents’?

    • October 31, 2012 at 08:59

      If that thing’s name and photo are left, it should be as a reminder what a horrid regime he’s orchestrated and that he’s the worst, most criminal, dangerous, anti-American and inept POTUS this Nation has ever seen.
