Thread: Benghazi US Embassy and Gun Running?

  1. Default Benghazi US Embassy and Gun Running?

    Ambassador Stevens was directly involved in arming the rebels, reported Egyptian security officials speaking to WND. Those officials claimed Stevens played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.

    The officials further claimed Stevens served as a key contact with the Saudis to coordinate the recruitment by Saudi Arabia of Islamic fighters from North Africa and Libya. The jihadists were sent to Syria via Turkey to attack Assad’s forces, said the security officials.


    Anyone hear anything else about this?

    Yup. There are rumors that Stevens was a closeted gay. How does that figure? I dunno.

    On topic, there's never been a doubt in my mind that weapons trafficking would figure into this somehow. The US seems likely to have armed AQ sympathetic jihadis. They're covering up something more than policy fail and cover for the Osama's dead meme. That is certain.

    I wouldn't believe anything reported by World Net Daily.

    Excerpt:

    But there's growing evidence that U.S. agents—particularly murdered ambassador Chris Stevens—were at least aware of heavy weapons moving from Libya to jihadist Syrian rebels.

    In March 2011 Stevens became the official U.S. liaison to the al-Qaeda-linked Libyan opposition, working directly with Abdelhakim Belhadj of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group—a group that has now disbanded, with some fighters reportedly participating in the attack that took Stevens' life.

    The debate over whether Obama called Benghazi a terrorist attack is almost besides the point. Benghazi wasn’t a terrorist attack, it was a military assault by the Islamist militias who are overrunning the region in the wake of the Arab Spring.

    The Benghazi attack and the rest of the Salafist wave of violence around September 11, 2012 is to Obama as the initial wave of bombings in Iraq were to Bush. The attacks kill the success image and showcase the instability.

    Obama and his media cronies chose to cover that up by blaming Freedom of Speech because the dangerous secret that they were carrying around was that his Middle Eastern foreign policy had created a degree of violent instability far beyond anything that the invasion of Iraq had done.

    Claire Lopez has suggested that Stevens was targeted over the Libyan Islamist terror pipeline into Syria. Others have called it a retaliation for the death of Abu Yahya al-Libi. But the larger story is that on September 11, 2012, Al Qaeda and their Islamist allies staged a show of force across the region. The Mohammed video was a convenient excuse for the Salafists and for Obama, but the real story is that most of North Africa is now Iraq.

    This is the type of thing that can happen when one tries to lead from behind...If you're going to arm rebels, you had better make (*)(*)(*)(*)-sure where those weapons are. Didn't they learn from "fast and furious?"

    I have been reading several different reports on this.. They contradict each other and frankly, don't make a lot of sense.

    What would be ironic would be if the Ambassador was killed by weapons the US had given to the rebels.

    How the US can continually meddle in all of these countries without reprocussions like this is beyond my comprehension. Obama had no business going in period. Now it may cost him an election.

    Maybe they thought Stevens was an "abomination".
