Benghazi Ambush

The Obama administration approach to treat this assassination as a spontaneous or even accidental crime by hot-headed miscreants is not only an imitation of the Clinton administration years before the World Trade Towers 2 attack, but it is also certain to empower the jihadists to strike again at the impotent police state power of the U.S.

American Crossroads flicks a dark image of a burning U.S. consulate in Benghazi, and mentions the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi, to illustrate a campaign argument that Candidate Obama is too busy on the campaign trail as a celebrity to make important decisions as commander-in-chief during a crisis.

The Benghazi chronology is the dark heart of this accusation. My information is that Stevens was lured to Benghazi by Libya officials and betrayed to jihadist elements who are fully employed in a private army and as Cyrenaica security forces.

You recall that Cyrenaica Province was the launch point of the rebellion that overthrew and killed Quadhaffi in the summer of 2011. Also, Cyrenaica was long the cauldron of jihadist fighters who traveled to Iraq to fight America in 2004-8. This is well known.

What is also known is that the Tripoli government employs Cyrenaica jihadists — grouped in an alphabet soup of units including the rebel militia LIHJ — to police Libya from pro-Quadhafi elements and in general. This means the US endorses these cutthroats as native troops.

Did State and the Obama administration know this? Yes. Did State know … that there was an alert out for several months that Al Qaeda was going to revenge the drone killing of Yahya al-Libi, the senior Al Q lieutenant to the Egyptian al-Zawahiri? Yes.

Did State know that al-Libi’s older brother is a senior commander in the Cyrenaica jihadist militia? Yes.

Could State put all this together and refuse the Libyan authorities invitation to Stevens to visit Benghazi on 9-11? Yes.

Did State have enough information to arrange that Stevens escort was an armored convoy and full ambassadorial security, including advance teams, aircraft, bomb detecting units, waves of bodyguards, even snipers? Yes.

Timeline Victory.

David Kirkpatrick, NYT Cairo correspondent, writes that there is a ten-hour “blacked-out period” that U.S. officials cannot solve without more investigation. This is why the FBI is said to be on the scene, interviewing witnesses.

My information is that the Benghazi officials, and the so-called witnesses all have excellent cause to mislead and distort the facts in order to conceal the scale of the jihadist operation. Asking the FBI to rely upon local eyewitnesses is a fool’s errand similar to what played out in all the terrorist attacks in the Middle East since Khobar Towers in 1995 (Tehran op), USS Cole in 2000 (Al Qaeda op) etc.

The FBI is not an intelligence entity. The intelligence ops have already put all this together as a military strike on the basis of who commanded, paid for, planned and executed the operation (Russian weapons from the Quadhafi arsenals).

The suggestion so far is that Stevens was lured to Benghazi by Tripoli/Benghazi authorities working with Al Q linked jihadists, and then Stevens steered to the safe house on purpose by local Benghazi authorities and then betrayed to the fighters. This is the so-called “blacked-out period.”

The Obama administration approach to treat this assassination as a spontaneous or even accidental crime by hot-headed miscreants is not only an imitation of the Clinton administration years before the World Trade Towers 2 attack, but it is also certain to empower the jihadists to strike again at the impotent police state power of the US.

For example, the four suspects already detained for the incident are, according to my information, old Quadhafi agents in the neighborhood who are troubling to the Cyrenaica sheiks and have no connection to the incident. They are truly “rough up the usual suspects.”

The assassination was an Al Qaeda victory on the eleventh anniversary of the spectacular Al Qaeda victory of New York and Washington. The timeline of the Stevens strike begins a countdown to the next wave attack.

    From what I can gather reading this information, it certainly appears that there is adequate proof to conclude that these senseless deaths could easily have been prevented. If there is not proven culpability there is certainly proven neglect. I do not believe that the truth will be admitted by the FBI unless someone there is willing to become a whistle-blower. Every aspect of this Administration is completely politicized. It’s always power and party before country.

      This was an intelligence failure. Who outed the Ambassador and told these “people” where the safe house was located?

      This was not a domestic crime. This is normally the purview of the intelligence agencies. Why is the FBI investigating this? Is it because the FBI falls under the Justice Department?
      I’m not blaming just asking.
      We are past who said what. We are past a video so poorly produced it would put a jihadist to sleep.
      Is Obama is so confident he will win that he goes on, even the day after, campaigning?
      Worldwide attacks on US embassies. Who cares?
      Chants from the crowd about many more Osamas directed toward Obama by name and still the media talks about “What Romney said.”
      I’m no spring chicken and have seen Presidents come and go. But this?
      I’ve never seen anything like this.

        All I know for certain is that I have a lot more questions than I have answers. And my gut informs me that Barack Obama is directly responsible for this, and is lending credence to the Muslim excuse to cover up his complicity.

    It does appear that Obama did order flags at half-staff. But I guess the Press couldn’t talk about that. They were too busy obsessing about Romney.

    What’s a few dead Americans? Who cares about attacks on American Embassies worldwide? Romney made a statement!

    Priorities people!

  • shelldoll2

    Does anyone know if flags were flown at half-staff? That is the usual procedure when something like this happens.

    Did the Press even ask?

    There’s no mention of it in Press reports I’ve read.

    when backtrack was put in office, it green lighted our enemies in the ME. His arrogance and ignorance weakens this country. Maybe if someone in charge would show up for a security intel meeting the country would have a chance and some knowledge .
    Is any one who gives a damn about this country in charge now?

  • DianaLC

    Makes me sick. What did they expect? Did they think that all Stevens had to do was step up and stick a flower stem in the barrel of the gun and then all would begin singing the “I’d like to teach the world to sing?” So many of our supposed leaders and journalists have now come straight from the ivory towers of progressive liberalism that they no longer know what is real and what is not.
    Did no one suspect that all of the POTUS’s bragging about his getting Osama and deciding who gets the drone this week would
    endear him to the radical factions in the ME?
    I have been numb for seven days. It’s surreal that we have this idiot in our WH.

    This is an excellent ad. Does anybody know if it is playing in swing states or just on the web?

    • jrterrier

      spread it around. I just twitted it.

    • HObama HObamanana

      That was my question as soon as I saw it. But given that the end of it shows donation buttons it seems to be purely web. It really needs to be on television. Pronto!
