The Real Reason Behind Benghazigate !
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.
