How US Ambassador Chris Stevens May Have Been Linked To Jihadist Rebels In Syria
IBD ^ | Oct. 19, 2012, 8:45 AM | Michael Kelley

REPORT: It Was A NATO Mortar That Killed 5 Turkish Civilians Last Week The official position is that the US has refused to allow heavy weapons into Syria.

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. In November 2011 The Telegraph reported that Belhadj, acting as head of the Tripoli Military Council, "met with Free Syrian Army [FSA] leaders in Istanbul and on the border with Turkey" in an effort by the new Libyan government to provide money and weapons to the growing insurgency in Syria.

Last month The Times of London reported that a Libyan ship "carrying the largest consignment of weapons for Syria … has docked in Turkey." The shipment reportedly weighed 400 tons and included SA-7 surface-to-air anti-craft missiles and rocket-propelled grenades.

Those heavy weapons are most likely from Muammar Gaddafi's stock of about 20,000 portable heat-seeking missiles—the bulk of them SA-7s—that the Libyan leader obtained from the former Eastern bloc. Reuters reports that Syrian rebels have been using those heavy weapons to shoot down Syrian helicopters and fighter jets. The ship's captain was "a Libyan from Benghazi and the head of an organization called the Libyan National Council for Relief and Support," which was presumably established by the new government.

That means that Ambassador Stevens had only one person—Belhadj—between himself and the Benghazi man who brought heavy weapons to Syria.

There have been other articles on this but this one is really juicy. Please read the entire thing. It does look like the Aarabs we were scheming with did what the turban turners do best. They double crossed us and swiped this bunch of heavy weapons and killed and sodomized our light in the loafers ambassador to underline what they think of us. I would like to think what will follow is a bigger version of what the Israelis did to the turds responsible for setting up the Munich Olympics Massacre. In passing, I suppose some wizards of smart at the CIA thought that using the former Soviet stuff from Col K's regime would be a clever bit of plausible denial. Unfortunately the turban turners are hard to beat in the treachery department. It seems to be genetically programmed.

Say , ..you don’t think that “ out light in the loafers ambassador “ got ‘Vince Fostered’ by our ‘Bathouse Barry’ , do you ?
With only one person between our ambassador and delivery to the Syrain rebels , and with a lot of money missing from the ‘safe house in Benghazi’ , one wants to follow the money ,..ya think ?

” - - - 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. - - - “

GREAT POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The longer Secretary of Statements Hilly takes to “get to the bottom of this,” the more obvious it is that the Benghazi Cover Up was designed to hide a VERY BIG US SECRET TOPIC.

My guess is that the CIA had discovered that some of the 20,000 Libyan Missiles were found in the possession of Ansar al-Sharia, and Obama knew it.

Can Hilly and Billy keep this a secret until after November 6, 2012?

Over the last few weeks....these kind of reports have been turning up in disperse news outlets....here is another I found tonight:

http://www.kansascity.com/2012/10/25/3885534/egypt-seizes-libyan-weapons-suspects.html

Looks to me like Obama and his cohorts are frantically trying to gather the weapons they gave our enemies back up.

Make no mistake.....these ARE impeachable and prosecutable offenses for ALL involved...from the WH on down the chain.

I think part of the reason why the QRF at Sigonella Sicily was not launched was fears they’d get shot down by MANPADS on the scene and that the whole thing might be a trap for that very purpose. —a Desert One scenario riight before a Presidential Election.

I wonder if a guy named Hussein is the one that is more treacherous than the terrorists he has been helping to overthrow lawful governments?

And dumping weapons into Syria?

Is there a pattern here?

Let’s see:

Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood, those are terrorists

Libya: Al Qaeda among others seem to be about

Syria: Overthrow that government to get peaceful Muslims in charge there too?

The only question still to be answered: Are Americans the biggest idiots in history? Or will it take another four years for Obama to finally remove all doubt? Saying it another way, Obama is obviously working with the terrorists!

Purely speculative, but I heard another possible theory on the John Batchelor radio show tonight - that it was an Iranian directed attack in BenGhazi... That they were seeking to disrupt the supply to the rebels in Syria, where they are committed to propping up Assad.

Thank you for the ping. I have not been able to sleep tonight thinking about what is truly going on in our country. Please see post 5 too. I have been reading everything I can get my hands on tonight and the picture is not good...nor is it innocent. Our President and many high level people in our government are betraying and lying to the American people. If they are not forced to tell the truth soon and face the consequences of their actions....I fear our country is going to suffer an unimaginable horror very soon. some of them in the chain may have thought on some level that what they were doing would work...but it is really treason of the highest order.

Pray for our country.

You better wake up and fast.

Bill Clinton was our first Black President.

Obama is our first Muslim President, terrorist that is, arming Al Qaeda, overthrowing governments. It's called treason. Obama and his terrorists are betting you won't figure it out until it is all over. Are you going to wake up and think clearly?

That theory has recently been making the rounds and frankly, it sounds like more propaganda being put out by the regime to throw off the stench of corruption and treason emanating from this administration. It is meant to stop our pondering and connecting dots....to lull us back to sleep. We are to trust that our government is doing everything in our best interests. I saw this excuse making the most rounds on liberal sites in my reading tonight. Of course, they are trying to latch on to any excuse right now to keep from facing the awful truth of their treasonous, lying president.

Sorry, no offense meant but sometimes being a bit of a smart a$$ moves the discussion quicker.

Does your reply mean that you are now seeing the obvious:

Obama is a traitor, best described as a Muslim working with Muslim terrorist to overthrow governments to be replaced with radicals?

That his budget defiicits were for the purpose of crippling the American economy?

That Obama’s energy policy is also for the purpose of destroying America?

That Obama’s social policies are designed to cause turmoil, not improvement.

Do you now agree that the impossible has happened. Obama has hijacked the liberals and made them useful idiots in his attack on America.

So who is Obama really working for?

Iran or Saudi Arabia? It looks like a little bit of both.

You're right that does deserve to be a thread of its own.

FWIW ignore the ankle biter.

Well I have been wondering why Romney was so stern on Russia/Putin in the last debate. And even more curious over the exchange between Obama and Romney. Romney is getting intel briefings and Russia and Iran are Assad's biggest supporters. Romney was all go on Assad being removed.

At this point I do not think there is any other politician more treacherous than Obama, that would by necessity include his teleprompter programmers that write his material. The Clintons are not even a half step behind Obama on the trechery scale.

Sounds like the Cold War all over again, except this time we armed the wrong guys.

” American officials and retired C.I.A. officials said the administration was also weighing additional assistance to rebels, like providing satellite imagery and other detailed intelligence on Syrian troop locations and movements. The administration is also considering whether to help the opposition set up a rudimentary intelligence service. But no decisions have been made on those measures or even more aggressive steps, like sending C.I.A. officers into Syria itself, they said.

The struggle inside Syria has the potential to intensify significantly in coming months as powerful new weapons are flowing to both the Syrian government and opposition fighters. President Obama and his top aides are seeking to pressure Russia to curb arms shipments like attack helicopters to Syria, its main ally in the Middle East. “

the last person who met with Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi was the Turkish ambassador?

very plausible

In addition to the possibility that when the SHTF no one in the WH was willing to call-in US forces on Barack Hussein and Hilary Clintons back-channel “allies”, blow the operation, and no NATO forces or NATO bases from which we operate were “in” on backing up a covert WH/CIA operation to bypass US Congressional oversight (and Russian objections) on arming Syrian jihadists with US and captured Libyan weapons

Its about to hit the fan.

That means that Ambassador Stevens had only one person—Belhadj—between himself and the Benghazi man who brought heavy weapons to Syria. Furthermore, we know that jihadists are the best fighters in the Syrian opposition, but where did they come from? Last week The Telegraph reported that a FSA commander called them "Libyans" when he explained that the FSA doesn't "want these extremist people here." And if the new Libyan government was sending seasoned Islamic fighters and 400 tons of heavy weapons to Syria through a port in southern Turkey—a deal brokered by Stevens' primary Libyan contact during the Libyan revolution—then the governments of Turkey and the U.S. surely knew about it. Furthermore there was a CIA post in Benghazi, located 1.2 miles from the U.S. consulate, used as "a base for, among other things, collecting information on the proliferation of weaponry looted from Libyan government arsenals, including surface-to-air missiles" ... and that its security features "were more advanced than those at rented villa where Stevens died." And we know that the CIA has been funneling weapons to the rebels in southern Turkey. The question is whether the CIA has been involved in handing out the heavy weapons from Libya. In any case, the connection between Benghazi and the rise of jihadists in Syria is stronger than has been officially acknowledged.
