Skip to comments.GAFFNEY: The real reason behind Benghazigate Was Obama gun-walking arms to jihadists?
Posted on 10/23/2012 8:06:32 AM PDT by penelopesire
President Obamas once seemingly unstoppable march toward re-election hit what he might call bumps in the road in Benghazi, Libya, late on Sept. 11, 2012. It might be more accurate to describe the effect of the well-planned and -executed, military-style attack on a diplomatic facility there as the political equivalent of a devastating improvised explosive device on the myth of the unassailability of the Obama record as commander in chief. Thanks to intrepid investigative reporting notably by Bret Baier and Catherine Herridge at Fox News, Aaron Klein at WND.com and Clare Lopez at RadicalIslam.org and information developed by congressional investigators, the mystery is beginning to unravel with regard to what happened that night and the reason for the subsequent, clumsy official cover-up now known as Benghazigate. The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East. Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat J. Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the opposition in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.

I also read on Breitbart this morning that some of the Benghazi documents were finally dumped on the committee investigating last night right before the debate.
Meant to ping you too!
I distinctly remember several news sources that talked about this during the days when the rebels were pursuing Qaddafi. Government armories were being opened and weapons were walking away, but our people were also providing weapons to the rebels, who were somehow different from the remainder of AQ.
Can you put me on your ping list please. Thanks
Sure..I am sorry. I know you have been following this story closely and should have pinged you. I don’t really have a list per se, just folks names in my head...lol. I will ping you to any other Benghazigate stuff I find. Please ping me to stuff you find too.
“..In short, it seems President Obama has been engaged in gun-walking on a massive scale. The effect has been to equip Americas enemies to wage jihad not only against regimes it once claimed were our friends, but inevitably against us and our allies as well. That would explain his administrations desperate and now failing bid to mislead the voters through the serial deflections of Benghazigate...”
This speaks for itself.
I wish the press would stop using the word “Benghazigate”. It trivializes the murder of at least four Americans...”xxxgates” have to do with sexual cover-ups like John Dean burglaries of Watergate and Clinton blow-jobs.
The attempted cover-ups Benghazi and Fast and Furious have to do with MURDERS and should be referred to the the BENGHANZI MURDERS COVERUPS and THE FAST AND FURIOUS MURDEERS COVERUPS...nothing less.
I see your point.
I noticed last night in the debate that Obama made several attempts to say that his administration was going through great pains to make sure those weapons going to support fighters in Libya and Syria were in fact ‘going to the good guys.’
Me thinks he knows this deal is fixing to blow up in his face. He also went to great pains to bring up his ‘support for Israel’ at every turn. The man is going to do a wag the dog before this election....no doubt about it. He is desperate.
This is as the article said: Obama's Iran Contra
Bigger than FAST and FURIOUS
.......(Could there be a connection? Backdoor jhadist weapon supply into America....Benghazi jhadist weapon supply?)
I can't wait until Issa and Chaffetz opens with WIDE OPEN, and I want it before the election. Obama's Blackhawk Down.
I will ping you, I know people are working on another aspect of this story as it pertains to the people in justice involved in the release of GITMO detainees who may have been in Benghazi ,my guess is they will not act until after the election and Holder is a lame duck. Then Katie bar the door as the walls will be singing at justice to bring accountiblity to these reckless fools.
Why the covert program to transfer US weapons to the violent jihadists who sodomized and killed Qadaffi??
Circumvent congressional oversight? Provide cover and deniability of how they got the US weapons if they were naughty with them?
Obama-Jarret-Brennan’s personal, back-channel diplomatic outreach to “freedom fighters”? Unencumbered by any need to coordinate with State Dept and HRC? Or was she in on it, too, as she was with Fast ‘n Furious.
Even if Obama and democrats were gun walking - was that reason enough to allow an ambassador and 3 Seals to be anally raped and murdered? There’s more to this...
Glenn Beck did an hour show yesterday on this . He named the Turkish point man who worked alongside Stevens to funnel the weapons to the jihadis . Glenn went much deeper on the rest of it. The first phone call Obama made as president was to the Turkish president and has now called him 13 times .The Turkish president hates Assad in Syria . These weapons were being funneled into Turkey to be distributed to jihadis to take out Assad in Syria.Why would the United States president help Turkey take out Syria ?? Was Stevens security weakened to take him out as a potential witness to Obamas gun walking?? Not to far to reach , when we know Obama uses people then throws them under the bus and it would explain why the White House watched from a drone on September 11 as Stevens and others were murdered.For eight hours this attack went on , forces could have been brought in from Tripoli , they weren't . A plane could have been sent in within an hour , YET NOTHING was done to help Americans as they were attacked! The kicker to this whole story is Obamas new "trusted friends " , the Muslim Brotherhood is the one who advised Obama as to who to funnel these weapons to . Turkey and Russia are aligning with Iran and our president is arming our enemies . Lovely !
Apologies for the wall of words...that's how it was posted.
None of this explains why Obama and democrats (including the MSM cover-up teams - ABC News - New York Times) allowed the four men to be raped and murdered.
Seven hours to get them out - that’s more than enough time to evacuate, documents and ‘equipment’. All was lost. Somehow like allowing a undamaged drone to fall into Iranian hands. Too much weird stuff — even the lies are lame...
Here’s a video of Obama telling “Vlad” that he’ll have more freedom after the election...
Romney didn't go their on Bengazi because as POTUS he may have to direct the resources need to investigate / prosecute said matter...
He didn't want to say a thing to muck-it-up...
A penny for your thoughts...
