Leaked security documents reveal the Obama Administration hired a top al-Qaeda brother to run security at the US embassy in Tripoli.
Walid Shoebat and Ben Barrack reported, via Jihad Watch:
A treasure trove of secret documents has been obtained by a Libyan source who says that secularists in his country are increasingly wanting to see Mitt Romney defeat Barack Obama on November 6th. This charge is being made despite Muslim Brotherhood losses in Libyan elections last July which resulted in victory for the secularists. One of those documents may help explain this sentiment.
It shows that in supporting the removal of Gadhafi, the Obama administration seemed to sign on to an arrangement that left forces loyal to Al-Qaeda in charge of security at the U.S. embassy in Tripoli from 2011 through at least the spring of 2012.
The National Transitional Council, which represented the political apparatus that opposed Gadhafi in 2011 and served as the interim government after his removal, made an extremely curious appointment in August of 2011. That appointment was none other than Abdel Hakim Belhaj, an Al-Qaeda ally and brother. Here is a translation of the letter:
National Transitional Council Libya
Mr. Abdel Hakim Al-Khowailidi Belhaj
We would like to inform you that you have been commissioned to the duties and responsibilities of the military committee of the city of Tripoli. These include taking all necessary procedures to secure the safety of the Capital and its citizens, its public and private property, and institutions, to include all international embassies. To coordinate with the local community of the city of Tripoli and the security assembly and defense on a national level.
Mustafa Muhammad Abdul Jalil
President, National Transitional Council Libya
Official Seal of National Transitional Council
Copy for file.
As for Belhajs bonafides as an Al-Qaeda ally, consider the words of the notorious Ayman al-Zawahiri. In a report published one day prior to the date on the memo above, ABC News quoted the Al-Qaeda leader as saying the following in 2007 about the man the NTC put in control of Tripoli in 2011:
Dear brothers the amir of the mujahideen, the patient and steadfast Abu-Abdallah al-Sadiq (Belhaj); and the rest of the captives of the fighting Islamic group in Libya, here is good news for you, Zawahiri said in a video, using Belhajs nom de guerre. Your brothers are continuing your march after you escalating their confrontation with the enemies of Islam: Gadhafi and his masters, the crusaders of Washington.

And you wonder why four US heroes were slaughtered in Benghazi?
By monumental ignorance or by evil design, this heinous betrayal of our ambassador and the heroes who fought and died in Benghazi is an impeachable offense.
Prosecute 0bama for TREASON and IMPEACH NOW. Oh, wait.. I forgot.. FACTS don’t matter anymore. WTF is Congress doing about this? Their failure to immediately act, is complicity.
From Gateway Pundit, so I believe the source.
(although if it was rocket science you could hire some Germans after the war is over).
One can only imagine how many classified documents confiscated by looters were found.. Even 0bama’s willful betrayal of the classified documents themselves is a national security risk. The drone lost to Iran, now this.
I'll always have al Qaeda ... and the New York Times."
Is it treason yet?
I am not sure the ambassador was betrayed. He may have been knee deep in the gun runner. It seems this attack is similar to a drug deal gone bad. The elements in Libya were convinced Obama was going to turn on them as the gun operation was being exposed.
Last thing Obama wanted was the Military there to capture prisoners and expose the operation (which in my opinion circumvented the CIA and other intell agencies and went straight to the White House) .. mob bosses don't call the cops when the deal goes bad... More to come for sure....
Can’t wait for Barry to move to Hawaii. Maybe he’ll take up surfing and catch the “Molokai Express”.
Why not? After all they did recruit NarcoGang guys to buy and smuggle guns to NarcoKINGPINs. And THEN GayMuzzie was going to turn around and betray the very same gun-shops they’d asked to COOPERATE in their stupid scheme.
2 US cops killed, and over 300 innocent poor Mexicans.
The bad guys also shot down a Mexican police helicopter and burned down a CASINO full of gamblers —17 ran into the bathroom to get FRESH AIR and the died there, all piled up, one atop another.
THIS LATEST SOUNDS HORRIBLE BUT CONSIDERING THE CONTEXT IT MAKES SENSE.
But they looked so trustworthy
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I dont add you to the list...
Da CHOOM GANG: NOW WE DO SECURITY, TOO..!
I don’t consider them the source the for the info- some shadowy figures... I know Obama screwed up, but I don’t know bout this or Walid Shoebat.
Obama is a liar, a thief, a coward, AND a traitor.
The POS needs to be impeached and then duck-walked to Gitmo for a long stay with his jihadist brothers.”
Maybe Stevens WAS supposed to be kidnapped and exchanged for the blind goat f@cker after all!
What is with you people? Congress is not even in session and a RAT is the head of the Senate.
We have all known for four years that this administration is based on Treason and capable of any outrage.
All our attention needs to be focused on defeating The Disaster decisively.
There will be no impeachment.
Russia always needs a buffer zone of nations between itself and the mean old West that are somewhat hostile to the West.
Besides, Obama had promised Putin that he would be flexible after the election, and what could be more flexible than to deliver Syria to al-Qaeda with Libyan arms?
BTW IMHO, when there is a coverup of a cover up, eventually somebody gets left behind, contrary to the latest Obama Says.
