Thanks to intrepid investigative reporting from reporters at Fox News, WND.com, and 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 cover-up now known as Benghazigate. There' a lot more to the tragic saga than just the murdering of four Americans in a godless part of Libya. 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 know as the Libyan Fighting Group.
Once Gadhafi was overthrown, Stevens was appointed ambassador to the new Libya run by 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 looted during and after the revolution. One of the places most awash with such weapons in the most dangerous hands is Benghazi. Stevens was there -- on that particular risky day, with no security to speak of and despite his many requests for more security for him and his subordinates. He was 600 miles from his safe Embassy in Tripoli while doing clandestine work in the ''Wild West'' city of Benghazi.
What was he doing there? The Truth is he was on a mission to send arms recovered from the former regime's stocks to the ''opposition'' in Syria. As in Libya, the U.S. government was aiding insurgents that included al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups. Fox News has chronicled how the Al Entisar, a Libyan-flagged vessel carrying 400 tons of cargo, docked on September 6th in the Turkish port of Iskenderun. It reportedly supplied both humanitarian assistance and arms, apparently destined for Islamists, again including al Qaeda elements, in Syria. What cries out for further investigation and debate in the remaining days of Obama's presidential election is whether this shipment was part of a larger covert Obama effort to transfer weapons secretly to America's enemies that could make both the Iran-Contra scandal, to say nothing of Operation Fast and Furious, pale by comparison.
Ambassador Steven's presence at the ''mission'', inaccurately called a ''consulate'' by the government until recently, actually served as a meeting place to coordinate aid for the rebel-led insurgency in Syria. Among the tasks performed inside the building was collaborating with Turkish, Saudi and Qatari government representatives on the recruitment of fighters -- including jihadists -- to target Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria. The distinction may help explain why there was no major security presence at what has been described as a ''shabby, nondescript building'' and was ''routinely used by Stevens and others to coordinate the gathering of arms and fighters.''
Investigators know that Stevens' last official act, about an hour before the murderous attack began was to conclude a meeting with an unidentified ''Turkish diplomat.'' Presumably, the conversation involved additional arm shipments to al Qaeda and its allies in Syria. Turkey has been leading the insurgency against Assad's regime. Stevens also served as a key contact with the Saudis to coordinate the recruitment, by Saudi Arabia, of Islamic fighters from North African states. It was revealed that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with the mission whose purpose has yet to be disclosed. As their contents were raided in the course of the attack, we may never know for sure what they housed -- and were known by the local jihadis to house -- arms, perhaps administrated by the two Navy SEALS killed along with Stevens.
The Way I See It.....most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not to the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster. In short, it seems President Obama has been engaged in gun-running on a massive scale. The devious, non-transparent State Department's Hillary Clinton, with Obama's White House cronies approval has in effect been able to equip America's enemies to wages jihad not only against regimes it once claimed were America's friends, but inevitably against America and its allies as well. That would explain his administration's desperate bid to mislead the voters and now that he is president and in the full glare of Congress he, Eric Holder and Hilliary still claim ignorance and will not reveal the full story. Impeachment sounds too easy....perhaps calling it Treason would fit the continuing under handed machinations from this corrupt Chicago-style government.

It's On ! As the White grapples with a growing backlash over its Libya lies and lapses, President Obama's apologists. This, after coming hot on the heels of further relations from whistleblowers last week on the Internal Revenue Service, back by Obama, singling out rich Romney campaign donors and Tea Party members by mainly subjecting them to some heavy-duty auditing procedures. The leaks keep coming. The Obama administration, which has a chilling zeal for investigating leaks and prosecuting leakers, has failed to offer a credible justification for secretly combing through the phone records or reporters and editors at The Associated Press in what looks like a fishing expedition for sources and an effort to frighten off whistleblowers.
Last Friday's revelation that Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department officials admitted they had been going through the A.P.'s records for months. The dragnet covered work, home and cellphone records used by almost 100 people at one of the oldest and most reputable news organizations. James Cole, a deputy attorney general, offered no further explanation this week, saying only ''that it was a part of a criminal investigation involving highly classified material.'' This action against The A.P., as the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press outlined in a letter to Mr Holder, ''calls into question the very integrity of the administration's policy toward the press.''
Get ready.....bring out the tar buckets! Operation SMEAR THE WHISTLEBLOWERS is coming. The State Department press office already has accused Victoria Toensing, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers of ''lying'' about administration pressure on her clients. Left-wing operatives funded by scumbag billionaire George Soros have taken to Twitter to mock reports of fear and intimidation among the new witnesses. White House patsy, press secretary Jay Carney continues to sing, ''Long, long ago'' and deny all wrongdoing. And one anonymous State Department official told Fox News reporter James Rosen that Hicks and Thompson have ''axes to grind.''
Gee, who wouldn't have an ''axe to grind'' if your bosses lied to you, blocked you from saving your co-workers and friends, and lied shamelessly and repeatedly to the American people about the reasons for their deaths. It's this corrupt and vengeful White House that wields the sharpest axes and biggest grindstones. The casualty count in Obama's war on whistleblowers is double-digit. For example, the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) insiders who testified before Congress about Obama's Fast and Furious gun-running nightmare faced systemic retaliation and harassment -- both from government supervisors who openly declared with hunts against them and from the liberal (Obama ass-kisser) media.
Maverick journalist Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News faced White House retaliation of her own over her Fast and Furious investigation. Department of Justice (DOJ) spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler ''was just yelling at me,'' and White House spokesman Eric Schultz ''literally screamed at me and cussed me,'' she told radio host Laura Ingraham in 2011. Also, the former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams, who blew the whistle on Eric Holder's rule of law-perverting, race-baiting reign, was basely smeared as a ''liar'' and perjurer by DOJ proxy and Washington Post tool E.J. Dionne -- who ignored Adams' stellar career record at DOJ and unassailable sworn testimony. Shades of Richard Nixon and talk of impeachment!
Then there is Gerald Walpin, former AmeriCorps inspector general, who was pushed out of his job by the Obamas after exposing fraud and corruption perpetrated by Democratic mayor of Sacramento and Obama friend Kevin Johnson. The White House baselessly questioned the veteran watchdog's mental health and never apologized for slandering him. Even the Pleasanton Weekly (California) was bullied by the White House press shop over a benign article that irked the administration because it made Michelle Obama look snooty (which she is). The San Francisco Chronicle was punished by the White House because a media pool reporter used a cellphone to record a video of protesters at an Obama Bay Area fundraiser.
|''What difference.......does it make?"|
I'd like to make Hillary say that if front of the bereaved familes and see if she gets hugged back. If you thought Chicago-on-the-Potomac was dirty with one scheme after another, you ain't seen nothing yet. No stone will be left unturned in the effort to slime, sully and squelch the Benghazi truth-tellers and any others who have exposed the government's underbelly. Mark my words: This is how Obama's thugs roll.
This past week, even the New Yorker concedes after the election what no media organisation of the Left would concede before it -- the White House didn't tell the truth about the Benghazi attack:
''It's a cliche of course, but it really is true: in Washington, every scandal has a crime and a cover up. The ongoing debate about the attack on the U.S. facility in Benghazi where four Americans were killed, and the Obama Administration's response to it, is no exception. For a long time, it seemed like the idea of a cover up was just a Republican obsession. But now there is something to it.'' I warned about this happening in three separate postings. An Act of War....Not a Movie Protest ! (September 16, 2012), Welcome to Benghazi Gate ! (October 3rd ), Obama Throws Hillary Under the Benghazi Bus ! (October 15th) yet the lamestream media ignored my warnings and was more interested in getting Obama elected at all costs; meaning printing or showing no adverse news.
The proverbial shit started hitting the fan at Capitol Hill hearings last Wednesday on the deadly 9/11 consulate attack (which the administration now calls ''a mission'') which featured three compelling witnesses, all State Department veterans: Gregory Hicks, (photo above) deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya (Tripoli) and highest ranking U.S. diplomat in the country at the time; Mark Thompson, a former Marine who now serves as deputy coordinator for operations in the agency's Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the top top security officers in Libya.
Hicks refuted Team Obama's claims that nobody was told to stand down and not send Special Forces to fly from Tripoli, 600 miles away, to save Ambassador Chris Stevens ( left ) and three other lives during the 8 hour attack. Hicks says the team received a phone call from the U.S. Special Operations Command Africa telling them ''you can't go'' and that the decision was ''purely political from the top.'' And when he complained a few days later about hearing the White House blaming the anti-Muslim YouTube video as the cause, Hillary demoted him to a desk job with the order to ''Keep your mouth shut!'' Nordstrom testified about how the State Department brass spurned his requests for increased security at the compound and Thompson added that Hillary Clinton got the phone call at 2 a.m. on the night of the attack and contradicted the former Secretary of State 's claims about the administration's response and the ensuing months of cover-ups.
Then, on Friday, ABC New's Jonathan Karl revealed the details of the editing process for the C.I.A,'s ''talking points'' (statement) about the attack, including the edits themselves and some of the reasons a State Department spokeswoman, Victoria Nuland, gave for requesting them. Over the course of 24 hours, the draft evolved from something specific and fairly detailed into a bland, vague mush. Taken out was the remark that ''at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi'' and as well as, ''We do know that Islamic extremists with ties to Al-Qaida participated in the attack.'' And right from the beginning of the editing process, the talking points contained the erroneous assertion that the attack was ''spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved from there.''
The administration's behavior before, during and after the attack in Benghazi, in which those four Americans died, was unworthy of the greatest power on earth. When you have the Defense Secretary, Leon Panetta, insisting, We quickly responded,'' and realising they responded that they would not respond....is more than shameful. In the midst of a re-election campaign, Obama aides wanted to promote the mythology that the president who killed Osama was vanquishing terror. So they deemed it problematic to mention any possible al-Qaeda involvement in the Benghazi attack. Also, looking ahead to 2016, Hillaryland needed to shore up the mythology that Mrs Clinton was a stellar Secretary of State. So her loyal aide, Nuland, quashed a we-told-you-so paragraph written by the C.I.A. mentioning Al-Qaeda and Ansar al-Sharia (a Libyan militant group) instigating the planned attack.
Yet in her testimony before Congress last January, Clinton said she had no knowledge that security had been chopped drastically a month before the attack nor was she aware of any pleas from her ambassador for security to be increased. But a few weeks ago, Rep Issa (R-CA) revealed documents signed by Clinton denying Steven's request for increased security. And that 2 a.m. phone call Greg Hicks reported having with Clinton as the battle was raging makes clear that she knew, even as her employees were being murdered, that the assault was a pre-planned jihadist attack to mark the anniversary of 9/11, had nothing to do with that YouTube video. Yet, Mrs. Clinton and her partner in deception, Obama, stood on the podium in the Andrews Air Force Base hanger before four flag-draped coffins, fighting back tears, solemnly told their families that ''an awful Internet video that we has nothing to do with'' was responsible for their loved one's slaughter. Media reported that ''her voice broke'' as she rolled out what she knew to be a shameless lie.
The Way I See It....Americans have a right to react with anger to the release of details about how the State Department altered talking points to scrub any mention of terrorist links to the deadly Benghazi attacks. They should put increased pressure on House Speaker John Boehner to insist on a select committee to investigate the entire handling of the assault on the U.S. consulate. This cover-up is among the worst ever. The Pentagon Papers, Iran Contra, Watergate, all the rest of them, but this is going to go down as the most egregious cover-up in American history.
I feel it would not be long before talk of impeachment is rebounding through the corridors of Washington. It can't come soon enough when people seriously start to use the I-word when referring to an arrogant, disconnected president. Much of this new information has come as brave whistleblowers have sought to right the record and, in doing so, may have jeopardized their careers. Increasingly it is becoming clear that we have only scratched the tip of the iceberg. If you thought Chicago-on-the-Potomac was dirty, you ain't seen nothing yet!!

It is a bizarre divergence. The more carbon dioxide rises, the less the world warms, the more the Warmists say it will. The latest report from the research facility atop the Mauna Loa volcano on the island of Hawaii, says that as of three days ago, carbon dioxide has passed the long-feared milestone of 400 parts per million. This reading, they say, is reaching a concentration not seen on the earth for millions of years, in the Pliocene Period, covering the rise of mammals but before humans evolved. Geological research shows that the climate then was warmer than today, the world's ice caps were smaller, and the sea level might have been as much as 60-89 feet (20-30 meters) higher. Al Gore jumped at the chance to Tweet:''CO2 levels breaching 400ppm is a sad milestone. A call to action.''
It is really bizarre at this time for warmist scientists referring to carbon dioxide as a ''heat-trapping'' gas and constantly repeating the manta that ''the evidence shows global temperatures and CO2 levels are tightly linked,'' when the evidence is the exact opposite. Firstly, carbon dioxide represents only a tiny fraction of the air we breathe, which of course we also exhale. As of last Thursday's reading, it was 0.04 percent. To put it in perspective, say you filled a million quart jars with air, only about 400 quart jars of carbon dioxide would have been mixed in. To quote Republican congressman from California, Dana Rohrabacher who said at a Congressional hearing, ''The CO2 levels in the atmosphere are rather undramatic.'' So where is all the rapidly accelerating global warming that is supposed to be gripping the world?
Well....it's not in the air. Atmospheric temperature readings show global temperatures have been flat for the last 17 years in spite of rising CO2 (see chart). It's not in the upper ocean. Sea surface temperature readings similarly show no recent warming. It's not in the polar ice caps. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite data show polar ice is currently more extensive than the long-term average. Antarctica's ice is thicker than in the last 20 years, while the Arctic ice is returning now that strong winds have subsided and Greenland's ice cap is growing too.
Global warming activists have finally come up with a last line of defense of their ideology they know nobody will be able to prove wrong. The missing global warming is in the Bermuda Triangle! No, I'm not kidding. This is what they are claiming. You see, the alarmists have been telling us for decades that rapidly accelerating global warming was imminent and unavoidable. The problem for the alarmists is the warming peaked in 1999 and now looks like it is in a slow cooling trend. So how do Al Gore, Michael (defunct hockey-stick) Mann, and the rest of the global warming Chicken Little's save face when their warming apocalypse fails to occur? Easy, blame it on the Bermuda Triangle! The NBC News claimed, in a headline last month, ''Where did global warming go? The deep ocean, the experts say'' while the same day USA Today had its headline announcing, ''Where's the heat? In the oceans depths!''
The headlines reflect a prominent global warming activist claiming that he developed a computer model by which global warming can bypass the atmosphere, bypass the upper ocean, and be entirely hidden the deep ocean; you know, that part of our planet where we really can't measure or find anything. That missing global warming is apparently hanging out at the underwater space alien base in the heart of the Bermuda Triangle. These warmists, of course do their best to make their Bermuda Triangle case sound scientific. The paper claims all this phantom global warming really can directly bypass the atmosphere and the upper ocean if winds start blowing strangely enough and strongly enough to bury the warming deep in the ocean. Thankfully we can spare ourselves the dizzying asserted logic of such a claim by examining recent global sea surface wind data. As Bermuda Triangle-busting science would have it, NASA satellite instruments show global sea surface wind speeds have declined rather than increased during the past decade.
The Way I See It.....so much for the Bermuda Triangle or any deep sea hideout for this infamous warming. So, is increasing CO2 a harmful pollutant? The answer is absolutely no. In simple terms, CO2 is the lifeblood of the planet. Plant life largely evolved at a time when the atmospheric CO2 concentration was many times what it is today. The lush growth of those millions of years ago is now being dug up from vast seams of coal. We are, from the plants' point of view, putting more of their food into the air, and they are gobbling it up and are rewarding us with expelled oxygen. So increasing concentration of CO2 does not pose a toxic risk to the planet. Considering that our planet's life system has experienced multimillennial periods of both warmer and colder weather, successful adaptation is the defining characteristic of every living plant and creature in our world today.
Not a single major prediction of ideological environmentalism has come true -- no rising sea levels, no Himalayan glaciers vanishing, no global famines, no cancer epidemics and no resource depletion crisis. So at the moment of its ascendancy, it is environmentalism, not modern civilization, that is tottering. As more critics --including epidemiologists, demographers, toxicologists, climatologists and economists -- point ever more insistently at the yawning gap between claims of political environmentalism and scientific and economic reality, green ideologues and academics who sold out to grants are becoming ever more frantic to deny the growing contradictions.

High blood pressure (hypertension), a condition where the systolic blood pressure is greater than 140 mmHg and the diastolic measurement is over 90 mmHg, is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Now you can literally protect your heart and lower your blood pressure by sitting down to dine on everything from soup to nuts. So let give you the low down on some foods you probably never really thought as having a positive effect on lowering blood pressure.
SOUP: A cold vegetable soup featuring tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic and olive oil known as Gazpacho. This Mediterranean (mainly Spanish) vegetable-based soup is rich in phytochemicals. Professor A. Medina-Remon, from the University of Barcelona, and colleagues analyzed data collected in a trial on 3,995 Spanish participants, which aimed to quantify the affects of a Mediterranean diet on a population at-risk for cardiovascular diseases. The researchers found that consumption of Gazpacho was inversely associated with the incidence of hypertension, reporting that the risk could be reduced by as much as 27%, The study authors concluded; The association between Gazpacho intake and reduction of blood pressure is probably due to synergy among several active compounds present in the vegetable ingredients used to make the recipe.''
DINNER: purple-skinned potatoes contain high levels of antioxidant compounds, including phenolic acids, anthocyanins, and carotenoids. Professor Joseph A. Vinsin, from the University of Scranton (Pennsylvania, U.S.A.), and colleagues enrolled 20 men and women, most of whom were overweight and hypertensive, in a study in which the subjects consumed 6-8 small microwaved purple potatoes once a day, or no potatoes for four weeks; then switched to the opposite regimen for another four weeks. The researchers observed that diastolic blood pressure dropped by an average of 4.5%, while systolic pressure decreased by an average of 3.5%. The study authors concluded that ''purple potatoes are an effective hypotensive agent and lower the risk of heart disease and stroke in hypertensive subjects without weight gain.''
Another study found red beets to have blood pressure easing effect as well. Those that are into juicing will find the beet juice is even more effective in reducing blood pressure than previously thought. So a combination of these two vegetables and a nice portion of grilled or steamed Atlantic Salmon would make an ideal dinner at least a couple of times a week.
The Way I See It....A nice handful of blueberries or strawberries mixed in a bowl of Greek yoghurt and sprinkled with walnuts or chopped almonds will enhance one's ability to enjoy the tasty effects of this heart-healthy meal, and the benefit of having your cardiovascular system's hypertension reduced and naturally under control without any of a medical blood pressure drug's side effects that show up over time.

Yep, it's time for yet another pandemic flu drill. ''WHO says new bird strain is one of the most lethal flu viruses,'' Reuters recently declared. Every few years, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) drum up another flu emergency; each promised to be worse than the last, and this year you're likely to start hearing a lot more about a ''lethal bird flu'' again. What many don't realize is that these agencies actually need these faux flu emergencies to practice -- to fine-tune their strategies and test the latest disease surveillance systems. They also need them to justify their own existence, not to mention growth and expansion.
So far, these pandemic threats have never been anywhere near as lethal as predicted. Unfortunately, many are still hopelessly addicted to fear, so these dramatic warnings will likely continue to be successful in enabling WHO and CDC health officials to accumulate more power and control. Hyping fear of microorganisms has already led to an increase in the numbers of vaccine mandates, which are now threatening people's health and the right to get an education, using a childminding center or keeping a job. In recent years, we've seen a number of aggressively hyped flu pandemics that were based more on media spin than on hard science and never materialized.
While it's prudent to be aware that a pandemic involving a mutated, lethal microorganism could occur in the future, what we've repeatedly seen is that the possibility has been massively over-sold in the past, allowing drug companies to rake in billions of dollars for fast-tracked, inadequately tested vaccines and other dangerous and/or ineffective anti-viral drugs. Sadly, each time a greater number of people tend to end up being harmed by the drugs and ''pandemic'' vaccines than actually succumb to the viral infection. Do you recall the 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 bird flu hyped warnings that mysteriously translated the minuscule number of deaths of bird handlers that had occurred into a worldwide threat of impending extermination? How anybody in their right mind could envision an acquired infection of people in contact with sick birds to spread among the general population of he Western world?
The 2009 swine flu hoax was the cruelest of them to date. After four consecutive years of bird flu warnings that just refused to come to fruition, the H1N1 swine flu because front page news. This turned out to be yet another faux threat that cost tax payers billions for fast-tracked vaccines which wrought havoc across the world. This H1N1 vaccine turned out to be the most reactive flu vaccine ever created, harming far more people than the virus itself. It struck down many people with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, unfortunately even two my patients who didn't heed my warning not to take it. This Syndrome is a neurological disorder in which the body's immune system is stirred up by the crap in the vaccine to attack the person's peripheral nervous system (PNS). The PNS is that part of the nervous system that consists of everything except your brain and spinal cord. It's characterized by progressive muscle weakness, paralysis of the limbs and the breathing muscles. Hospitalization is often a necessity to prevent death. Ironically, this 2009 ''pandemic'' actually turned out to be one of the mildest flu seasons in recent years with a low number of reported deaths.
If the CDC or WHO decide the possibility of H7N9 becoming transmissible to the general population, the real danger lies in the fact that pandemic flu vaccines are virtual untested in adequate clinical trials before they are released to the public, and therefore carry unknown risks over and above the ''normal'' risk you take with any vaccination. According to Joseph Kim, president of Inovio, a California-based company, ''In case of a pandemic, vaccine production is fast-tracked so animal testing is skipped and the vaccine is immediately used to treat humans.'' And therein lies the rub. Pandemic vaccines are among the most high-profit and low-risk business ventures for vaccine makers. They stand to make billions of dollars while being completely shielded from liability if the vaccines turns out to be hazardous, like it turned out in 2009. Not to mention they save a ton of money on development and testing on either animals or humans.
The Way I See It....you should be prepared to hear more fear mongering about the H7N9 bird flu. In the meantime, I'd like to remind you that a healthy immune system is your best and primary defense against any viral threat. Following these simple guidelines will help you keep your immune system i optimal working order so you're less likely to acquire the infection to being with and if you do get sick, you better prepared to recover without serious complications -- which by the way will give you a longer lasting naturally acquired immunity to the strain of flu you experienced.
- Your Nervous System and immune system are ''joined-at-the-hip'' and combined make a strong deterrent to any virus. The first priority is to get your spine checked out by a Chiropractor to remove any nerve interference to its proper functioning and to stimulate the immune system..
- Optimize Your Gut Flora. The bacteria in your gut have enormous control of immune system. Avoid sugars, processed foods and most grains and take probiotics in some form to feed the good bacteria.
- Optimizing Your Vitamin D levels is one of the absolute best strategies for avoiding infections of all kinds. Adults need about 8,000 IUs a day and be sure to take Vitamin K2 as it has a powerful synergy and will help prevent Vitamin D toxicity.
- Get Plenty of Rest. If your body is overly fatigued it will be harder for it to fight the flu.
- Get Regular Exercise. Exercise increases your circulation and blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better distributed and better to respond if the infection spreads.
- Wash your Hands. Washing hands will decrease the likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people.
- Use Natural Immune Boosters such as Olive Leaf extract, Omega 3 Fats (Krill oil), oil of Rosemary and Garlic.

At any rate, the UK Daily Mail reports that a ''senior Saudi government official with direct knowledge of the document'' says his government warned the Department of Homeland Security, in writing about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2012. The letter allegedly included a specific warning that he might be interested in assembling bombs, advising that his mail should be checked for bomb-making materials. As a point of fact, the Saudi warning was separate from the multiple Red Flags raised by Russian intelligence in 2011 and was based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen.
So, the guy was too radical to get into Saudi Arabia for a pilgrimage to Mecca, but American intelligence didn't think he was worth keeping an eye on? Amazing! The Saudi source for the Daily Mail story stated that the Kingdom is especially leery of radicalized American Muslims, when they try to visit Mecca, prompting the Saudis to ''carefully examine every visa application.'' This high-ranking official provided a wealth of detail about the warning the Saudi government sent to the United State. He spoke on the condition of anonymity. He suggested that the Saudi Ministry of Interior sent the letter out of an abundance of caution in order to be helpful to the U.S., even though its intelligence on Tsarnaev wasn't yet fully developed.
The Saudi official also implied that this warning about Tsaraev might have led to the meetings President Obama held with the Saudi interior minister in January, and a curious unscheduled meeting he held with the foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, two days after the Boston Marathon bombings. If that's true -- particularly if the interior minister personally conveyed a warning about Tsaraev to Obama in January -- all hell will officially break loose. The other odd event was that it was reported after the bombings that a Saudi by the name of Abul Ali Al-Harbi was hospitalized and became a ''suspect'' and then ''a person of interest''. His apartment was searched in front of the news media's cameras and a roommate was questioned at length as was Al-Harbi by federal and local authorities. No confirmation was given to his involvement.
Many of Abul Ali Al-Harbi's clan are steeped in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda. Out of a list of 85 terrorists listed by the Saudi government it shows several of the Al-Harbi clan to have been active fighters in Al-Qaeda:
- #15 - Badr Saud Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
- #26 - Khalid SAlim Uwaid Al-Lahibi Al-Harbi
- #29 - Raed Abdullah Salem Al-Thahiri Al-Harbi
- #43 - Abdullah Abul Rahman Muhammad Al-Harbi (leader)
- #60 - Fayez Ghuneim Humeid Al-Hijri Al-Harbi
- #73 Muhammad Atiq Uwaid Al-Awufi Al-Harbi
The Daily Mail dutifully includes denials from the White House and Department of Homeland Security, which are really going to come back to haunt them, if this story checks out. If true, the account will produce added pressure on the DHS and Obama to explain their collective inaction after similar warnings were offered about Tsaraev by the Russian government. A DHS official denied that the agency received any such warning from the Saudis and the White House took a similar stance. ''We and other relevant U.S. government agencies have no record of such a letter being received,'' said Caitlin Hayden, a spokesperson for the resident's National Security Council.
Of course, this is the same administration in which the Attorney General, Eric Holder, dodged perjury charges in the deadly Fast and Furious scandal by claiming he never reads his emails, and the White House managed to bluff its way through an election by claiming some nameless rogue operative in the intelligence community bamboozled it with a phony story about ''spontaneous video protests'' when terrorists murdered the U.S. ambassador to Libya in Benghazi.
|Al-Harbi and You Know Who|
These allegations are so explosive that we really need to see that physical documentation before reaching any conclusions. But where there's smoke there usually is a fire smoldering. Just following the dots is leading to some curious offshoots of intrigue and political machinations. Even down to the quick and quiet deportation of Al-Harbi. We know the Obama Administration's record for honestly, transparency, and inter-agency coordination is appalling, so there's no reason to take their denials on faith, but the Saudis have been known to create stories when they want to burnish their own credentials as terror fighters in spite of funding radical mosques on American soil. Just as the Benghazi debacle stills smolders in people's minds and is not going away, it looks as if another hot spot of foreign policy ineptitude could flare up and get Obama BBQed.
