I also read while researching the "GOP cut funding to diplomatic security" claim...would the funding have made a difference? The suprising answer, NO....cuz the Behngazi wasn't in the State Department budget, it was in the CIA's classified budget.


Actually, it was a Consulate Compound. The CIA station was to the Southeast and if you get the reading through enough of the declassified/unclassified communications back and forth to Benghazi, you'll get to see it was something of an issue between "full" consulate and consulate compound. However, the first document of the bunch, establishes the ownership and intentions for the Benghazi State Department Compound.

Benghazi House Investigation Documents

The set is addressed to Patrick Kennedy, under secretary of State for Management. He overseas quite a lot, actually. Here's the list of departments he handles. He started in 2007 and still serves. He also served in the Iraq Provisional Authority. Small world, huh? What could go wrong? There are nearly 170 documents there and it's good reading right from page one. They're source stuff released last year of the back and forth to Benghazi's diplomatic compound, out to the Tripoli Embassy and Washington. Thank goodness for Congressional investigations. Things like this get released.

I am a Canadian so I very seldom enter the US Political forums but I like to lurk and learn.
I do realize that this post is worthless as in I offer no content, but many thanks to all the posters here for a fascinating thread with many possibilities indeed...

I do enjoy Tom tom Clancy Novels and this thread is looking good for a new book:-)

More like ZIONIST'S in control of the US government
Iran....... ha ha ha - ....... everybody with a grain of common sense knows full well that al Qaeda had absolutely nothing do with the Zionist operation known as 9/11.

Well what a surprise? Terrorists work together? Who would have thunk it? And yes people ALL governments are terrorists by the very definition!

terrorism definition...




noun 1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes. 2. the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization. 3. a terroristic method of governing or of resisting a government.


The use of violence and THREATS to INTIMIDATE or COERCE... "Pay us TAX or we will lock you in a damn cage BOY!" "sell/take substances WE don't like and we will lock your ass up BOY!" "Dare resist and we will send in our troops BOY and put you in a hole!!!"

Yep, sounds like a terrorist to me, wouldn't you say?

Man, I am so sick! I am so tired! It is like beating my head against a wall! People will argue with me that we need these ******* terrorists to make everything happy and sunny and beautiful! Without them the world would be a horrible mess.... HELLO! Are you ******* serious?

People, is this a nightmare? Tell me I am dreaming! Come wake me up someone cos this can not be real, people can not really be this dumb! Surely?

I used to come here often thinking that WE could join together and FIGHT (intelligently not physically)! But what I found was mostly terrorist/gov sympathisers! People choking on stockholm syndrome! It saddened me, honestly! It took some sting out of me! If WE can't do something here, then what ******* hope do I have doing anything out there?

Yet still I fight, still I argue, still I stand... Is it worth it? Probably not...

I have made sacrifices in my life and my families life because I want to make a difference! I want so much for things to be better and for us ALL to be able to live in peace! Yet I am told I am a fatasist! I am told I need to just bend the **** over and take it like everyone else! I am told that I should be frightened and weak and scared!

I weep for humanity... I plead with everyone that reads this, DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!

I disagree...



The official reports, such as the one from the Accountability Review Board and the Senate Homeland Security Committee report, essentially dance around that uncomfortable fact:

“In December 2011, the Under Secretary for Management approved a one-year continuation of the U.S. Special Mission in Benghazi, which was never a consulate and never formally notified to the Libyan government.” (ARB)

“The attacks in Benghazi occurred at two different locations: a Department of State ‘Temporary Mission Facility’ and an Annex facility (‘Annex’) approximately a mile away used by another agency of the United States Government.” (Senate report)




Pursuant to Title III of the Omnibus Diplomatic and Antiterrorism Act of 1986, 22 U.S.C. § 4831 et seq., (the “Act”), Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton convened an Accountability Review Board (ARB) for Benghazi to examine the facts and circumstances surrounding the September 11-12, 2012, killings of four U.S. government personnel, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, John Christopher Stevens, in Benghazi, Libya.

A series of attacks on September 11-12, 2012 involving arson, small-arms and machine-gun fire, and use of rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), grenades and mortars, focused on two U.S. facilities in Benghazi, as well as U.S. personnel en route between the two facilities. In addition, the attacks severely wounded two U.S. personnel, injured three Libyan contract guards and resulted in the destruction and abandonment of both facilities – the U.S. Special Mission compound (SMC) and Annex.

www.state.gov...



And, as Kessler also points out, the internal Accountability Review Board, in its investigation, tiptoed around the delicate matter: The U.S. Special Mission in Benghazi, it said, "was never a consulate and never formally notified to the Libyan government." In other words, this was a hit on a CIA outpost, resulting in the death of an ambassador who happened to be there at the time.

www.cnn.com...

Ambassador Stephens was the "Special Envoy" to the Rebel Forces during the revolution...and his presence there in Libya was a continuation of that operation..."Special Mission Benghazi"...

23 of the 30 Americans rescued in Benghazi were CIA...only 7 were with the State Department.

There it is.

He could and they would because they weren't exactly Democrats. If I recall correctly, those SEALs that were purposed to guard the Ambassador were conservative Christians; I remember all the support they got from California churches that were mostly Republican in the 90s before heading over there. Party opposition lost them their security. This was an inside White House game in another country.

On the cheap. Well now I want to know what the CIA's price was. It was a sale of the stingers, not a giveaway. And Clinton couldn't have done the decision all by herself. Don't forget that when you do a deal with a devil, the devil does its job and hurts you in the process, taking twice as much as than if you had done it the right way. Well look at these results; she got what she paid for.

Well in another world Hillary is already President, for two terms it seems, but we're running on Obama 2.0 here.

Stingers. Thankfully it wasn't bioweapons like nerve gas.

Why is this # shocking?
Why do you all jump for yaya and declare the impeachment?
Truth is they OWN YOU ALL..............
And they have just about all the cards, which makes it a definate hard road for those who do protest....
They are already getting guns for food cards from some people......
How easy it is to buffalo the you people after fifty years of being fed water full of flouride....
Many psychotropic drugs based on flouride......stuff like fluvoxatine and others as bad.
I think the end game is just about wound up.....
and oh, by the way...................

So...in other words...this article is telling us... that the State Department provided the weapons to our enemy...that killed our people in Benghazi.

Am I understanding this correctly?


Why the American aircraft was not sent in to rescue.

They would have been shot down by the SAMs the state dept gave to Al Queda. The ensuing investigation would have led to the state dept responsible for shooting down American aircraft.

TREASON!


You sir, hit the nail directly on the head!

If this is true...then there weren't supposed to be any survivors.Can any one say "Stand Down"?
No wonder they (the survivors) want to come forward as whistle-blowers; Hillary and Barack deemed them 'expendable', where saving their own political a**'s is concerned.

Take away their American Idol/The Voice and every other useless "fake" reality show and watch people perhaps wake up. This is nothing new in terms of people not getting informed. If it doesn't affect them, they could care less. Sad really.



I can only partially agree with this.

I think the MSM is also largely to blame for ignoring these stories until recently. Benghazi is not new, but some media are only covering it in recent weeks as if it were. A lot like the Goznell trial. Not many knew about it, because most liberal media refused to cover it out of fears of how it may change pro-abortion views.

This is much the same. The lap dog media that was once covering for Obama, his fan club of boot licking sycophants, has begun to awaken to the fact that they are getting a dose of "Et tu, Brutus?".

Once the Whitehouse attacked the press, it was ON. No way any of them will back off now. Let us not forget that just mere weeks prior to most of these stories hitting the MSM, Fox News excluded, the media was crying about being threatened by the Whitehouse. No one payed attention or gave any credence to those stories, either.

Now, when they realize they too can be thrown under the bus, that no one, or at the very least a select few will be spared, the knives came out.

Obama bit the hand that not only fed him, but groomed him, bathed him, fed him, sang him lullabies, and put him to bed.

MR. CARNEY: Well, let me just make clear, I do stand by that when we were talking about the talking points that were produced by the CIA and provided to members of Congress on the Intelligence Committee in the House who would ask for it and others, as well as folks in the administration, that that document was -- there was a suggested edit that was accepted by the White House, and that was a change from, to make it factual, the calling of the building in Benghazi a “consulate,” because it was not a consulate, to “diplomatic post” or “facility.” I can't remember which.ch.

But there were. Some 30 odd survivors, that have been hidden in hotels by the Feds, and threatened about talking to anyone. Their Civil Rights being denied, as they are housed away like prisoners of war, to keep them from talking to anyone, including the media, and blowing Obama's cover.

Where ARE the survivors? Why is no one DEMANDING they not only be revealed, but RELEASED? Some of these people are Civilians, while many are State Dept. and CIA.

The NDAA at work, and the entire country is complicitly silent.

True but leaving a serving US Ambassador to die so as to CYA is definitely new.


And there you jump the shark.

What evidence there is, is that the Obama administration funded weapons for the Libyan revolution. No need to "provide" those weapons as every country in the middle east has weapons for sale.

And unlike past administrations...he felt compelled to "clean-up" left over weapons when it was obvious they were going into the hands of extremists after the revolution.

There is some meat there, but when you falsely try to spin it into him letting a US Ambassador die to CYS...that is without logic or evidence and reeks of pure political BS.



Actually i found something interesting in my digging. I actually think i found the proof you wanted!!!!!!

Look here this is odd

White House Believes 20,000 Sophisticated Missiles Missing in Libya




ABC News is reporting that a secret White House meeting discussed the disappearance of 20,000 “portable, heat-seeking” missiles. They quote Tommy Vietor, spokesman for the National Security Council, saying that a State Department expert “is on the ground in Libya,” along with five specialists, to work with the new government to find, secure and, if necessary, destroy the missiles. Libya possessed large stocks of Grinch SA-24 and SA-7s shoulder-launched missiles. The Grinch is a much more sophisticated and effective missile than the SA-7. The Grinch is considered similar to the famous Stinger anti-aircraft missile that helped the Afghans defeat the Soviets. AOL D readers will remember that the White House’s top counterterrorism official, John Brennan, made it very clear several weeks ago that the White House worried al Qaeda will get its hands on the missiles. There were already reports then of large numbers of missiles being looted as the Qaddafi regime collapsed.


breakingdefense.com... te-house-believes-20-000-sophisticated-missiles-missing-in-li/




For the first time since the conflict in Syria began last year, an activist opposed to President Bashar al-Assad has publicly presented possible evidence that the antigovernment forces have obtained a heat-seeking, shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missile. The photograph at the top of this post, which was published on the Facebook page of Obaida Elwani on Tuesday, shows a complete SA-7 system, an early member of the Stinger class of weapons

Well I guess this is hitting mainstream during the Obama administration, but come on, this is just typical foreign policy for the United States.....and we know the US government is just the puppet for the military industrial complex.

It is all about making money, controlling trade routes, controlling the petrol dollar.

Saddam / Iraq, Afghanistan, weapons money to Saudi Arabia / Egypt / Israel / Turkey.....the west should have never entered the Middle East in the first place.

Wow im on a roll tonight just found something else it looks like this story has legs there was an arms deal with libyan rebels i keep finding more stuff here look!!!




(Reuters) - President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government, U.S. sources familiar with the matter said.





European government sources said wealthy families in Saudi Arabia and Qatar were providing significant financing to the rebels. Senior officials of the Saudi and Qatari governments have publicly called for Assad's departure. On Tuesday, NBC News reported that the Free Syrian Army had obtained nearly two dozen surface-to-air missiles, weapons that could be used against Assad's helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. Syrian government armed forces have employed such air power more extensively in recent days. NBC said the shoulder-fired missiles, also known as MANPADs, had been delivered to the rebels via Turkey. On Wednesday, however, Bassam al-Dada, a political adviser to the Free Syrian Army, denied the NBC report, telling the Arabic-language TV network Al-Arabiya that the group had "not obtained any such weapons at all." U.S. government sources said they could not confirm the MANPADs deliveries, but could not rule them out either.



Now you know if Turkey a NATO ally wwas involved the US government is all in on this.
