My fresh information is how to explain the surprising scale of the errors at Benghazi. It is useful to stipulate that the building where Ambassador Stevens was attacked was not a consulate.
It was a State Department residence that was maintained to provide an explanation for the presence of the CIA station that was about a mile distance --
The CIA station "annex" was responsible for recruiting and training Libyan assets in Benghazi, many of whom were directed to the so-called "Libyan Brigade" that is serving in Syria under the supervision of Turkish Military Intelligence. (This is part of the operation aimed at removing the Assad regime and replacing it with Jihadist/Islamists sympathetic and beholden to the Sunni lords at Cairo-Ankara-Riyadh-Doha.)
The attackers were fully informed of these facts, as they are part of the Cyrenaica networks of Jihadists/Islamists that have dominated the province for decades. (The attackers are commanded by the tribes/authorities of the province.) Why was the US dealing with treacherous gunmen?
This is the infamous big picture of Libya and the Obama administration. I am told that, following the fall of Tripoli in the fall of 2011,
POTUS believes this gesture demonstrates to the Arab Spring's newly-minted Jihadist/Islamist warlords (Tunis, Tripoli, Cairo, Sanaa) as well as to the old warlords (Riyadh, Doha, Ankara) that the US policy is not opposed to Jihadism and Islamism (despite the drone strikes and the assassination of Bin Laden.) In addition to this gesture of apologetics,
POTUS has directed the US and its allied security apparatus to train and equip the gunmen of Benghazi in order to send them to Syria in order to demonstrate how the US supports the Jihadist/Islamist cause not only in Libya, not only in Syria, but also throughout the ummah.

Lol. Barack the undocumented
Barack stand down Obama, the hero of Benghazi
I pray for whistleblowers as this drip becomes a stream. Much is at risk for these trapped inside this monster. Bad time for them since they can not count on the media, given the news blackout, to cover them.
Bump for later
The shores of Benghazi have been ceded, haven’t they.
Tripoli must be next.
Iirc ob said in 2009 there was no war on terror just al qaeda
The logical continuation of this pro-Sunni strategy would be to allow Egypt, the Saudis, and the Turks to pursue nuclear weapons. The US appeasers already know they can’t stop Iran from getting them, so in their naive worldview, a ‘MAD’ balance of terror (including India and Pakistan) would develop in the ‘enlightened’ multipolar post-American century.
Thank you. I can see how that was a factor.. but as someone who was a news junky throughout the Cold War I can't help wondering..
who was the major beneficiary of destroying the secret weapons supply chain to Syrian rebels? (If that what it was.)
Who are experts with tons of experience with things like getting Americans killed or -- in the case of the USS Scorpion and the 99 crewmen -- killing the Americans directly?
Who are the experts at throwing Washington into turmoil? Even when Washington was run by adults.. not the radical, spoiled brats stuck on an imaginary campus somewhere.
This whole thing just gets more and more bizarre.
He has show that in his dealings with Israel, his promises to us 4 years ago, etc.
I suspect that the US through the CIA, backed down on some promise they had made the Islamics and suffered the consequences.
There is also, of course, the good chance that the group that attacked the embassy were sent by either Russia or Syria as payback for sending weapons and men to fight in Syria.
But it is apparent that saying the ambassador was their to retrieve weapons given to the militias to fight Gaddafi is a cover-up lie.
His mission was probably to see that those weapons were gathered up and put in the same shipments as the new stuff we were sending to the rebels in Syria.
Regardless of which of the above is the most accurate, it is obvious that obumbler has again made a fool of himself.
But even so, the bigger issue is: What is obumbler’s ultimate plan for that area?
To me it seems obvious that his ultimate goal is to make the Muslim Brotherhood the dominate power throughout the area.....and the certainty of the Caliphate.
I know the difference between there and their.
I type fast and some of it is totally automatic.
And my proof reading has always sucked.
Info on Benghazi keeps coming out.....

I went to your July 2011 story link and, oh my goodness! What I read in it was a kernal or sort of template for the “blame the video” cover story, here it said:
The US State Department on Monday formally condemned Syria for failing to protect the US embassy complex in Damascus from a violent assault it said was encouraged by a pro-government Syrian television station.
“A television station that is heavily influenced by Syrian authorities encouraged this violent demonstration,” a State Department spokesperson said in a statement.”
Tweak that and voila! TV and video and free speech are the causes of all violence therefore. We know where that goes.
Yes that is true. There were loads of Soviet influence in the Middle East during the Cold War -- and Putin continues it today -- even though Russia has its own troubles with Islamists.
There was even communists in Iran and the USSR that helped Ayatollah Khomeini to oust the Shah. If I remember correctly.
Yes. I could well be..
how close is Fethullah Gülen to the White House? Dalia Mogahed was selected as an adviser for Obama's White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships; she supports Gülen.
Many in Turkey will agree that "[Gülen] has been responsible for the replacement of the secular government in Turkey with an Islamic regime."
As for typos.. I view them as my ID security; to wit, it there is not at least one I did not submit the reply.
