I read this article this morning and before i was done something in my gut hit me. Is this leaked disinformation to cover those who sold weapons to AQ and make sure it does not come back to the US State Department as well as implicate someone else.

Benghazi occurred around the time that the CIA was supposedly attempting to buy back weapons that 'may have' been sold to AQ by the State Department against advice of the US intelligence agencies and others. Step one of the coverup is to remove those who know. Enter the Benghazi attack....

Then you got rid of Petraeus who also spoke out against it right around the time of the election with a scandal. Surprised he did not die in a car accident. This is step 2.

Step 3 - Disinformation campaign that 'something' has been found. There have been rumors of the MANPADS in the hands of those who should not have it. Now bring it mainstream.

and who are they linked to in the article?




he 26-page document in Arabic, recovered by The Associated Press in a building that had been occupied by al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb in Timbuktu, strongly suggests the group now possesses the SA-7 surface-to-air missile, known to the Pentagon as the Grail, according to terrorism specialists. And it confirms that the al-Qaida cell is actively training its fighters to use these weapons, also called man-portable air-defense systems, or MANPADS, which likely came from the arms depots of ex-Libyan strongman Col. Moammar Gadhafi.


They came from Libya...nice play US....nice play US. Dead men tell no tales.

It's not the first time that that has happened and it won't be the last. It was happening in Afghanistan quite a bit with American money and weapons in the hand of the Taliban.

Some tricks never get old.

And the Iran Contra.

It has happened before, will happen again but it this the precursor catalyst that will be used in the next big terror attack. Seems they are creating the trail that the MSM would follow. A downed Israeli jet or US citizens on a downed airliner would be perfect substance for the attack on Iran that is so wanted.

This is how we entered WW2...and WW1....and...

Getting in a line, facing your enemy in the eyes. That is how war is supposed to be. I don't like war, but if you are going to start one, the least you can do is stand on that line and give your life if that war was so damn important. Not sending someone you don't know to the battlefield to fight your battles for you. That is the definition of a coward.

Yeah Lets all line up and put signs on us saying shoot me. Do you realize how stupid that is to line up liek that? Wars are not gentlemanly things. The british and the colonials were stupid doing that crap,and until the americans stopped doing that the losses were high. Its basically Suicide by soldier then. And ALL armies are controlled by commanders who send their men to die.(including terrorist armies) SO are they all cowards too?

Wars are for money. All sides selling to the other while the expendables fight the in the dirt and bleed for what they believe in. It will never change.
