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...
Benghazi. Brought to you by ‘Responsiblity to Protect’ (R2P).
I like Beck most of the time. Thanks for the link. I have his network installed and will definately watch it tonight! Was it his radio show or TV show?
Beck did a show on R2P:
I would go back even further....why take Ghaddafi out at all? Who wanted him gone? Bush had him largely neutered. Me thinks someone wants his oil.....either Obama’s buds in the Muslim world or his handlers in the Marxist world....like Soros.
I would definately be lookin hard at Jarrett and all the MB infiltrators in the O administration.
Perhaps...but sadly I do not think that Romney will pursue prosecution of this deal ( or others) if he wins. It is a dangerous slope when incoming administrations start prosecuting outgoing administrations. I do expect major pushback and possible impeachment if Obama wins. Just some thoughts.
It was his TV show. It comes on at 5 p. E. It’s also on Dish 212 - TheBlazeTV. It replays, each day.
Thanks.i subscribed to Blaze TV and will watch it for sure!

There you are.
They set up the “new” Libyan regime (this would be the jihadists in 3 piece suits and swiss gold watches) with a fancy new bank account for their “oil revenues” and then took over the oil industry
I have wondered if Qaddafi (or his sons) pushed the wrong persons or people too far, made some kid of threats against their business interests, that made the French, Italians, and Germans want him GONE. The Russians also were pretty compliant with seeing their old client-poodle being hunted, raped and murdered and all his seed with him (Unlike Assad in Syria where the Russians have drawn a line in the sand)
Or maybe Qadaffi, like Mubarak, was just TOO PRO-west and too PRO-Israel for the current obama regime ... or maybe Qadaffi knew too much about his fellow african, obama, from his financial relationship with obama’s kenyan grifter granny, who was qadaffi’s honored guest just weeks before obama’s NATO dawgs issued the attack order
This way the wON can be helpful to the MB in libya and egypt...please there is no one who can talk in person now>>>>>>>I mean against the WON
At least with Watergate, nobody died.
Walking guns to Al Quaida.
Next: Walking nukes to Iran.
Excellent post! There is something very wrong with this whole thing...that much is certain. Some very evil people hovering around Obama.
Very scary prospect. What a shame that this country has sunk so low in electing this kind of man, that we seriously have to entertain such thoughts!!
I'll reserve judgement as to why he did not.
Still don't know all the details of what these two men did exactly but have heard mention a couple of times both tried to make an end run around the dollar, US government and were taken down, swiftly.
| No man left behind in Benghazi?
Who do you think I am?
General George Patton?
- Barack Hussein Obama II
So this Administration is gun-running to Mexican drug cartels and Middle Eastern jihadists. Once again, Hussein shows his true colors. (They aren’t red, white, and blue.)
I’m so tired tonight, and I should be stunned, but I find that I’m more mad than anything else!
Is this what the lies and cover-up are truly all about?
I’m getting here very late to this thread. I’ve been busy all day.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
OMG my tinfoil hat coming true bookmark.
I’ll say. The Marxist and evil regime must be VOTED OUT.
The next class is how you tie your own fly..
Now I have done that,...actually had the gear at one time ....its kind of fun.
Just thought I would throw that note into all of the serious business.
He didn't seem particularly surprised.
He engineers for Raytheon,...the team he is working with is upgrading F-15 electronics (I think) for foreign governments.

For goodness sakes, this is no longer an obscure story; Gaffney's no slouch. IT'S IN THE WASHINGTON TIMES!!! Really, it's safe to say SOMETHING. They have absolute proof that Zero knew. They have proof that he had sufficient time and the means for remedial action. They have proof that he lied about it and ordered his minions to chime in at every opportunity. He had Hillary standing in front of the caskets at Andrews babbling about a video. They have proof that the entire hierarchy marched in lock-step right off that credibility cliff, that every one of them thought it was worth it... and yet STILL the mediots are babbling about how they have no idea why Zero wouldn't do anything about the attack.
How about, He's COMPLICIT in that attack?!?!?! 'Oh no, CAN'T be. That would be treason! That's just conspiracy stuff. Only birthers think like that...'
This creep is so clearly a lifelong revolutionary communist that it is impossible to conclude otherwise. There is equal reason to believe that he is a closet Muslim. Look at who funded his rise to power. Look at the record of Marxism for G_d's sake, not to mention Islam... Human life and national loyalty mean NOTHING to either one of those ideologies. Yet even conservative mediots confronting the possibility that Stevens was simply offed, either because he knew too much or because he wouldn't go far enough, and simply close their yaps in the effort to appear concerned and serious. The portents are so horrifying and they feel so stupid and ashamed for having let this creep get this far that it's easier to hope the election will fix it. Well they'd better wake up before this petulant thug does something truly serious, like steal this election, visibly, obviously, brazenly... with the entire MSM backing him up calling it a "miracle" or "unexpected."
Then what will they do? It's been done before.
