This editorial ran in my paper last week…Nov. 8 edition of the Center Post-Dispatch. Haven’t even heard a whisper of it from broadcast media…But it’s finally making its way around the Internet! Just wanted folks to know what a farce this election REALLY was and how Obama and his administration are now furiously attempting to do the cats covering routine. But no matter how much sand flies they cannot cover up their complicity in this. Obama may have won Nov. 6 but still may be a short termer. One editorial states that impeachment proceedings have already been suggested because he and Panetta were brazen enough recently to tell a Congressional panel the following: In deciding if we go to war again they will consult the UN first and then inform the American public of what they have decided! Like one Canadian columnist wrote, only a civil war or Divine Intervention will save us…
The emerging ugly truth about Benghazi
By Teresa L. Benns
Recent editorials and articles featured in both the New York Times and Washington Post raised questions late last month not only about what happened to American citizens in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, but Pres. Obama’s repeated insistence that America has al-Qaeda on the run.
Really? From the aforementioned articles it would appear that al-Qaeda is not only not retreating, but with the help of American-provided arms, wrested from the hands of Moammar Gadhafi, is actually advancing on neighboring Syria. This according to information developed by Fox News, Aaron Klein at WND and other sources is the real reason that Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was meeting the night of Sept. 11 with a Turkish official in an unsecured American embassy: to seal the arms deal.
The plan was to transfer the weapons to no less than Islamic Jihadists, described in an Oct. 22 Washington Post article by Frank Gaffney as “insurgents…known to include al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups, including none other than Abdelhakim Belhadj.” As Gaffney further points out, even the New York Times reported in an article Oct. 14 that this was the case, noting that the arms being used to fight the Assad regime are “going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster.”
So obviously the Obama administration was not alarmed by America’s past role allowing Middle East citizens to obtain visas and train as pilots on American soil, something ABC and US News and World Reports warned this summer may still be happening. This despite heightened post 9/11 security measures put in place by Homeland Security.
Nor was the administration apologetic that weapons were made available to Mexican drug lords to use in the murder of American border patrol agents. Under the ruse of working hand in hand with Middle East officials — to bring the war to a close in Iraq and Afghanistan and secure peace in other troubled nations in the region — Obama and his advisors, apparently, also engaged in this macabre dance with the Jihadist devil.
It wasn’t politically expedient to take a firm stand on all terrorist activity, regardless of its target nation. Instead they risked the excesses of Islamic fervor and its potential disregard for American-friendly Syrian nationals, intending to play the role of heroes by riding in on the Jihadists’ coat tails and announcing victory.
And what of the Americans lost at Benghazi while doing the administration’s dirty work? Of course this couldn’t be “exploited” as a campaign issue; the incredible truth would have caused shockwaves throughout the nation. Exploitation was hardly the intent; securing a truthful explanation for the American people and justice for its murdered citizens, whose forced dance around the Jihadist fire consumed them, was the real issue.
As Gaffney noted, this travesty cries out for further investigation and validation, and pales in comparison to the Iran Contra scandal or Fast and Furious. And last Sunday, Ret. Navy Admiral James A. Lyons joined him in a vehement demand for an accounting.
The question these men pose here is this: Who is really waging Jihad against those once our allies, and how have our avowed enemies now become our comrades in arms? As Veteran’s Day approaches, those especially who served honorably in our Armed Forces deserve to know how an apparent case of aiding and abetting the enemy can be successfully drowned out by the mainstream media’s silence and the cacophony of a re-election campaign.
Because in any other age, in any other era, from the very minute it was made public, the Benghazi betrayal simply would have been ranked as treason.

Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, came forward to “take responsibility overall” for the attacks at Benghazi, but per Ed Klein we now know behind the scenes Bill Clinton advised his wife to resign over the possible criminal fallout of the Benghazi massacre. Today we learn from sources that not only did Hillary ask for added security, and was denied, but her closest advisers strongly suggested she seek legal counsel just days after the attack. Why? Why did “they” deny Hillary’s requests for added security to Benghazi, and why is this a situation in which a Secretary of State would need personal legal counsel? Could the Benghazi fallout, go beyond what a Public Relations firm can handle? I’d say YES. Could this be a criminal act, negligence, dereliction of duty, which resulted in murder? I’d say YES. And I’d say that Hillary is telling the truth as the “source” of these latest developments come straight from her “legal counsel”. Hillary did prior to September 11th, 2012 order added security for Benghazi, and those Requests were denied—but by who?
To fully understand what happened in Benghazi, we need to step back. Ambassador Stevens was located in a CIA safehouse (otherwise known as the building burned down during attack)–that location is where on the night of the attack he dined with the Turkish General Counsel. Why?
Why was Stevens meeting with this Turkish official? Apparently, in reports the U S was gun running weapons through Turkey to aid the Syrian Reb els, but the real kicker here is that we handed over 400 tons in one shipment, to Al Queda and the Muslim Brotherhood, who are the leaders of these so called “Syrian Rebels”. We can speculate what the Turkish General Counsel talked with Ambassador Stevens about that night—but what is clear is that the Al Queda backed forces were on scene whilst the two men dined.
The ‘Libyan forces,’ called the Feb. 17th Brigade, were the extra security which manned that CIA safe house. On the night of the attack, Sean Smith, sent this message via a gaming app ”Assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures.”
What is interesting to note here, is the quotations around the word police. Here, he is referring to the Feb. 17th Brigade, and what it tells me is he is questioning just who these ‘police’ are with, why are they casing the safe house taking pictures? We now know that this “Brigade” is an affiliate of Al Queda and they fought under the “Black Flag” of Al Queda.
Diana West, an expert in Middle East affairs has this to offer:
The Obama administration, however, threw in Uncle Sam’s lot with bad guys – the “rebels,” the “martyrs,” the Muslim Brothers, the whole jihad-happy crew in Libya and the wider Middle East. Uncle Sam, more or less, crossed to the “other side .” It is this alliance or support for “martyrs” and their sympathizers in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt and Syria that is the betrayal from which Benghazi-gate rises, particularly as our veterans’ cemeteries and hospitals are filled with casualties caused by such “martyrs.”
Let’s cut to the chase. Benghazi is shaping up to be the worst cover-up ever in the history of the US . The 12 reports that were filed within the first 24 hours, outlining to the White House exactly what had transpired, never once mention a “protest” or any “video”. They do mention an Al Queda linked group called Ansar al-Sharia, claiming the attacks.We know that the drone was feeding live video back to the White house “situation room” and that Obama was in a meeting with Panetta and Biden at the White House—we know they were informed via those emails of the attack in progress.
Is there any doubt they also were watching this live in real time?
And with that info, Obama strolled out to the Rose Garden, and alluded to this “video”. In later appearances Obama does talk about the “vile” video, then slamming Romney for calling it a “terrorist” attack. The DOJ indicts and arrests a man, albeit with a shady past—but does his family deserve having a price on their head—do they deserve to never return to their home, due to danger? Does he deserve to be in protective custody due to death threats from Muslim extremists? Do the 4 dead Americans, and their families, deserve any of what has gone on?
America stands at the crossroads in history .
The Main Stream Media are protecting Obama, so many Americans do not know these details. They are hoping to slide through the next 2 weeks and pull out a victory, putting back in power the President who watched our fellow Americans die..…. and then, who went to bed.
Just imagine what those four fine Americans were feeling when they were left to die by their own government . Sickening, Treasonous Betrayal!
