Obama the arms broker to al-Qaeda 9

What is the real, the shocking truth that the Obama administration is trying to conceal about the tragic events in Benghazi, when the US ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered in an Islamic terrorist attack?

The answer to that question also answers another that has been hanging in the air: Why was the US Ambassador to Libya in Benghazi on that day – the anniversary of 9/11 – in an insecure building without sufficient protection? What was he doing there? What urgent mission did he have that took him away from the comparatively safe embassy in Tripoli?  

Now we learn that Ambassador Chris Stevens’s mission in Benghazi on that fatal day was to organize the shipment of arms to the rebel militias in Syria.

And that means: the shipment of arms, by order of the President of the United States, to al-Qaeda, the terrorist organization which the President himself constantly declares to be the enemy of his country. 

No wonder President Obama, Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the rest of the stoats and weasels have been lying their heads off and trying to put the blame for the whole hideous and tragic episode – for what amounts to an act of war – on somebody’s little video. Scraping the bottom of the excuses-barrel.

The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have now taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East.

Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the “opposition” in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, the leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.

So Frank Gaffney writes at Townhall.

Once Qaddafi was overthrown, Chris Stevens was appointed as the 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 amounts of armaments that had been cached by the dictator around the country and systematically looted during and after the revolution.

One of the places in Libya most awash with such weapons in the most dangerous of hands is Benghazi. It now appears that Amb. Stevens was there – on a particularly risky day, with no security to speak of and despite now-copiously-documented concerns about his own safety and that of his subordinates – for another priority mission: sending arms recovered from the former regime’s stocks to the “opposition” in Syria. As in Libya, the insurgents are known to include al Qaeda and other shariah-supremacist groups, including none other than Abdelhakim Belhadj.

He quotes Fox News as reporting that –

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 – including deadly SA-7 man-portable surface-to-air missiles – apparently destined for Islamists, again including al Qaeda elements, in Syria.

What cries out for further investigation – and debate in the remaining days of this presidential election – is whether this shipment was part of a larger covert Obama effort to transfer weapons to our enemies that could make the Iran-Contra scandal, to say nothing of Operation Fast and Furious, pale by comparison?

The “consulate” in Benghazi was not so much a diplomatic outpost as a brokerage bureau for the distribution of illicit arms.

And the broker-in-chief  was the  President of the United States of America.

Investigative journalist Aaron Klein has reported that the “consulate in Benghazi” actually was no such thing. He observes that, while administration officials have done nothing to correct that oft-repeated characterization of the facility where the murderous attack on Amb. Stevens and his colleagues was launched, instead they call it a “mission.” And what Klein describes as a “shabby, nondescript building” which lacked any “major public security presence” was, according to an unnamed Middle Eastern security official, “routinely used by Stevens and others to coordinate with the Turkish, Saudi and Qatari governments on supporting the insurgencies in the Middle East, most prominently the rebels opposing Assad’s regime in Syria.”

We know that Stevens’ last official act was to hold such a meeting with an unidentified “Turkish diplomat.” Presumably, the conversation involved additional arms shipments to al Qaeda and its allies in Syria. But it may also have involved getting more jihadi fighters there. After all, Klein reported last month that, according to sources in Egyptian security, our ambassador was playing a “central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.”

It gets worse. Last week, Center for Security Policy Senior Fellow and former career CIA officer Clare Lopez observed that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with the so-called “consulate” whose purpose has yet to be disclosed. As their contents were raided in the course of the attack, we may never know for sure whether they housed – and were known by the local jihadis to house – arms, perhaps administered by the two former SEALS killed along with Amb. Stevens.

What we do know is that the New York Times – one of the most slavishly pro-Obama publications in the country – reported on October 14, 2012 article that, “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists … ”

In short, it seems President Obama has been engaged in gun-walking on a massive scale. The effect has been to equip America’s enemies to wage jihad not only against regimes it once claimed were our friends, but inevitably against us and our allies, as well.

That would explain his administration’s desperate, and now-failing, bid to mislead the voters through the serial deflections of Benghazigate.

“The serial deflections”, yes. Or just say the stupid, transparent, blustering lies.

The truth is out now. Obama has been covertly arming al-Qaeda while claiming to have effectively destroyed the organization by permitting the killing of Osama bin Laden. He has tasked US representatives abroad with the arming of America’s enemies.

The State Department was his chief agency to carry out the treacherous plan, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton his closest partner in the plot. 

They must not only be driven from power, they need to be brought to trial for treason.

Here’s the official story now being put out (via Fox news) to explain Ambassador Stevens’s presence in Benghazi on the fatal night:

Fox News has also learned that Stevens was in Benghazi that day to be present at the opening of an English-language school being started by the Libyan farmer who helped save an American pilot who had been shot down by pro-Qaddafi forces during the initial war to overthrow the regime.

For that footling purpose he went to Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11?

And had a social call from a Turkish diplomat who just happened to be there at the same time?

The lies go on and on. How dumb do the stoats and weasels think we all are?

  • Jillian Becker

    Bidenizm.com refers to this post and asks three valid questions:

    “My questions are these:

    How does an ambassador, logistically, go about collecting various arms from a deposed regime? it either takes teams of in-house ‘operatives’ to carry out the tasks of investigation, collection, storage, and transportation or it takes cash to have it done for you.

    Why would an Al-Qaeda associated group destroy an embassy that had helped them depose Quaddafi in the first place, and would be helping an associated Al-Qaeda group achieve a similar goal in Syria?

    What happened to all the cash? You know there had to be cash involved to buy support from the Libyan rebels to begin with, to buy security from the local warlords like Belhadj, or to buy the recovered, formerly Quaddafi weapons. In any case, you know Belhadj would have to have been compensated. Maybe, someone took that cash/cache before the right people were paid to ship it to Syria.”

    It is the second question that most interests us. The (incomplete but likely) answer to the first question may be that the big, secret CIA operation being conducted from the annex was set up to find, collect, store, and transport arms. Maybe the attackers were after the arms as much as they were lusting to kill Americans on 9/11, and maybe they found them and took them. Maybe they found and took caches of cash too. So maybe – to hazard a guess at the answer to the second question – they did not know that at least some of the recipients of Libyan arms smuggled into Syria would be fellow al-Qaeda terrorists (al-Qaeda being not a single organization but analogous to a franchise).

    • Just “Biden” your time, eh Jillian? Whatever the full explaination is, it will come out in the fullness of time. The administration left too many witnesses… and enemies.

    We risk losing everything:
    We’re being seriously outraised, Steve.

    As of last week, Mitt Romney and the Republicans had $45 million more to spend than our side.

    That puts us at an alarming disadvantage in a close race with just 9 days to go. Please help close the gap today.

    We have more than 4 million people who own a piece of this campaign, and the other side wants to straight-up buy this election from under our feet with a few big checks, and flood the airwaves with negative ads that distort the President’s record and attack his character outright.

    I know it can be aggravating. Believe me. But we have to stay focused.

    Look, we knew this onslaught of spending was coming, and that’s why we’re here day after day asking you to help drive us forward. Now it’s time for you to step up and join the team.

    We need to fight this now, Steve — and, for that to happen, I need you to do your part, or we risk losing everything we’ve built and invested in:

  • Sorry for another “off topic” but I found this link and it is just TOO MUCH FUN!!

  • Dubya found out that all the great plans of mice and men can be for naught when inserted into a chaotic system. We cannot shape anything unless we go all in as a colonizing force with the intention of staying for decades. If we are not willing to do this, we should maintain a large force on hand, based at sea, and on (relatively) friendly soil, ready to severely punish any challenges launched against us. We must be consistant in this regard. We lingered way to long in Iraq, and as all can see ultimately only delayed the inevitable struggle for new top dog(s).

    A few things can be predicted about the middle east however: 1) They will not love the infidels no matter how much money or assistance we throw at them 2) They will be constantly at war with each other because tribal and sectarian loyalties trump any efforts at true nation building. 3) It will always require ruthless and brutal leaders to maintain some semblance of order amongst the tribes over the long term. 4) Attempts to manipulate events internally, towards an outcome ultimately beneficial to the West, will fail more often than not.

    It is an illusion to think the west can somehow reliably buy a controlling interest, or measure of safety, anywhere in the middle east. It can only be secured by force. Obama is just the latest naive chump (no I said chump…. with a “u”) whose own personal hubris blinded him to the evidence of history. Early voting and a headline stealing storm may help him combat the steadily increasing evidence against him, but Republicans must not let this go. By comparison It makes “Watergate” look like a petty dime store theft.

    “What a tangled web we weave”…and it becomes more twisted and tangled by the day. I assume they thought this was the way to go in getting rid of Assad. I’m sure he wanted that feather in his cap before the election. But arming Al Qaida? What good could possibly come of that in the long run? But I don’t doubt their trusty Muslim Brotherhood friends and advisors were telling them that all Muslims would love them after this and pledge loyalty to them forever, never kill another American…oops, there went that one…
