Women: Sen. Bob Menendez paid us for sex in the Dominican Republic | The Daily Caller


On the surface, the Benghazi affair makes absolutely no sense.

  • Why would the administration deny additional security to the Libyan Ambassador and an the Libyan Consulate?
  • Why would the administration openly lie to the American people about a protest that never happened, when they had real-time intelligence that there was no such protest?
  • What was the general substance of Ambassador Steven’s last meeting with the Turkish Ambassador?
  • Why would the administration persist in the lie, even when the media had credible contradictory information in its possession?
  • Why would the administration fail to secure the Consulate area after the event, leaving it open to anyone – even a reporter who recovered Ambassador Steven’s personal diary?
  • Why would the administration deliberately deny permission for CIA personnel to aid the stricken Consulate?
  • Why would the administration deliberately deny permission for military personnel to come to the aid of those under attack?
  • Is there a “Presidential Finding” that sanctioned the gunwalking?
  • What political purpose could be served by lying to the American people in the days leading up to a national presidential election?

Could this be a repeat of the Iran-Contra Affair that almost brought the Reagan Administration down?

During the Reagan administration, senior Reagan administration officials secretly facilitated the sale of arms to Iran, the subject of an arms embargo. Some U.S. officials also hoped that the arms sales would secure the release of hostages and allow U.S. intelligence agencies to fund the Nicaraguan Contras. Under the Boland Amendment, further funding of the Contras by the government had been prohibited by Congress.

 Or could the “optics” of an administration funding anti-American terrorists be damaging to the Administration’s chances for a second term?

Based on the latest information, Ambassador Stevens was being used to broker an arms deal with al-Qaida linked militant groups who comprise the Free Syrian Army. The FSA is being used by our CIA to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime.

Claire Lopez is a 20-year veteran of the CIA. This is her assessment:

The facility in Benghazi was never officially a consulate. The consular functions were handled at the embassy in Tripoli. So, Benghazi was set up primarily to be the hub for U. S. support for the rebels. Afterwards, it seemed to continue its function to be the point of support for the weapons that were looted from Gadhafi’s stockpile. The particular ones we’re worried about are the bigger ones, the RPGs and shoulder-fired missiles that can bring down aircraft. They’re gathering those up, buying them back, and collecting them. Then, and this is what it seems like, those weapons were going through the pipeline, coordinated by Stevens, most likely through Turkey, to the Free Syrian Army. After all, there’s a presidential finding for its support. Connecting all the dots, it looks like there was an active pipeline of weapons from Libya, through Turkey, and then to the Free Syrian Army.”

The White House claims that they were not arming Syrian rebel forces. That was a lie. Our CIA has been arming the Free Syrian Army, which is comprised of Al-Qaida like militant forces, and the Benghazi building where Stevens died was being used to funnel weapons to these radical Muslims. <Source>

Comparison to Fast and Furious gun-walking …

Syrian rebels squabble over weapons as biggest shipload arrives from Libya

A Libyan ship carrying the largest consignment of weapons for Syria since the uprising began has docked in Turkey and most of its cargo is making its way to rebels on the front lines, The Times has learnt. Among more than 400 tonnes of cargo the vessel was carrying were SAM-7 surface-to-air anti-aircraft missiles and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), which Syrian sources said could be a game-changer for the rebels <Source>

It should be noted that the ship was from Libya and guided by a Benghazi Captain.

This is the same kind of policy that created “Fast and Furious.” If we armed certain Mexican drug cartels in undercover sting operations, we could find out more about other drug cartels that we wanted to take down mostly for political reasons. The problem is, good people end up dying, and when that happens, the administration has to lie in order to cover up their bungled operations.

It’s also reminiscent of when our CIA funded and armed the Mujahideen in Afghanistan back in the late 70’s and 80’s for the purpose of fighting off another one of our enemies, the Soviets. Osama bin Laden was our ally then. This led to the creation of Al-Qaida in 1988. Then, bin Laden and Al-Qaida became our enemy and attacked us. Now, we’re arming them again to bring down Assad in Syria. And four Americans are dead, and the Obama administration doesn’t care. <Source>

Bottom line …

It appears that Obama could have simply said that Americans, including an American Ambassador died in a secret military mission and the information surrounding the affair was classified and would only be provided to Congressional oversight committees under seal and classified “top secret.”

But it appears that incompetent political strategists, concerned about the upcoming election, concocted an implausible story about a video – even suggesting that an American citizen, albeit a scummy criminal one, should be taken in to custody, interrogated and jailed for an alleged violation of his parole. Political Kabuki Theatre.

Now Obama is caught in staging an indefensible “cover-up” and lying to the American people. Can he ever be trusted again at the podium? I think not.

Even  worse, he was caught arming anti-America terrorists who could easily use their Obama-supplied weaponry against an American airline or people in America. All to give the appearance that his foreign policy in bringing some measure of democracy to the region was working. A heavy, heavy price to validate an unearned Nobel Peace Prize.

We need to remove the malignancy that is the corrupt, incompetent and Muslim-friendly Obama Administration – starting with President Obama and his fellow travelers in the House and the Senate. And personally, I would want to know if Obama’s interference in the Middle East had anything to do with strengthening the Muslim Brotherhood which appears to have tangential ties to members of Obama’s Administration and possibly one of his financial backers.
