Serious Questions Bubbling Up about Benghazi
Off Grid Blogger blog ^ | October 24, 2012 | Off Grid Blogger

There is evidence that the people involved in the attack on Benghazi (or at least one of them) fled Libya. Where was he (they) home-based? Was the attack just from some angry local Islamic rebels or from a nation state?

Could Iran have been involved in some way? What about Syria?

We know enough to believe that Ambassador Stevens was involved in brokering arms to Syrian rebels via Turkey. What was Russia’s part in this? Knowing that Russia is our opponent in Syria, is the US failure to send help to our people related to a desire not to offend Russia?

Is it coincidence that the Turkish ambassador left a meeting with Ambassador Stevens only an hour before the attack?

Could the perpetrators have been involved with those who overthrew Qaddafi, and thus were using U.S. weapons obtained during the Arab Spring? Could our Americans have been killed with weapons that we supplied the enemy? Was Obama aiding and abetting the enemy?

An October 24 story from CNN said that U.S. intelligence believes that some Benghazi attackers were tied to al Qaeda in Iraq. Could Ayman al Zawahiri and al Qaeda be the ones that ordered the attack? Is Ansar al Shariah, who claimed responsibility for the attack, an affiliate of al Qaeda? Was this group armed by the U.S. in the Arab Spring?

The State Department says a six-man Rapid Reaction Force was dispatched to the consulate from the CIA compound, 1.2 miles away. Militia commanders in the Benghazi operations room that night say they have no knowledge of such a force being present at the consulate. What happened? Was this an inside job?

There is a story out that Bill Clinton tried to convince Hillary to spill the beans and resign. Why would Hillary Clinton take the blame for something she didn’t do?

What did Leon Panetta know? Is he lying too? Why?

Is the Libyan embassy just the first of more planned attacks on our embassies? Was this an isolated incident?

Who in our government gave the order to stand down and not rescue our people? CIA people said the order came from their higher-ups. But the head of the CIA David Patraeus denies that it came from his department.

The White House has refused to say when President Obama first became aware of the attack and its gravity. Is it believable that the President did not know what was going down, when there was a drone (actually two drones) overhead relaying real time info to the White House. There was also live video and audio going to the White House situation room, as well as Internet communication during the attack. These are known facts.

If there was an order from President Obama to “doing everything possible” to aid our people, insiders say that there would have been some sort of paper trail in confirmation. Where is that paper trail? Did the President lie to the American people.

According to a source on the ground at the time of the attack, the team inside the CIA annex had captured three Libyan attackers and was forced to hand them over to the Libyans. What was that all about? Why did they give them up?

Was Ambassador Stevens’ death a hit? If so, from what side? What was he doing that angered the hit men? Does this sound at all like the mafia connection with JFK?

My memory may be failing but wasn’t there some video shot either with a camera or cell phone while the attack was going on that showed an armed group approaching. When approaching they yelled (through translation) “Don’t shoot Morsi sent us”?

That was a really interesting read, but how much is true? Lots of conjecture so far. If this can be pieced together into the kind of scenario the author believes occurred, then it’s Impeachment time for Obama.

My guess is wait and see who gets the squeeze. The prospect of jail time may create some loose lips.

I have one question. If this gunfight lasted seven hours where are all the dead terrorists? How many were killed? What happened to their bodies? Ok; three questions.

YouTube decided the truth shouldn't be known through their portal, so they shot the messenger.

That's part of YouTube's peace plan

Just remember, when all these Obama shills keep telling you the only reason you want answers is political, the only reason the DON’T want to answer is political!

Their only tactic here will always be some form of “the pot calling the kettle, black,” if you analyze it correctly.
