Skip to comments.Critical Benghazi Question: ‘What Caliber Ammo?’
Posted on 01/23/2013 7:54:15 AM PST by george76
As the Congressional hearings on the fiasco in Benghazi gear back up, and as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton prepares to testify all manner of questions are floating around about who knew what and when
Therefore, the question that is simply asked and objectively answered, without placing any of the SF or CIA operatives at mortal risk is a simple one. You see, the Kalashnikov rifle chambers a 7.62 mm round. The US M-4 rifle chambers a 5.56 mm round. What is widely reported and accepted is that at least two of the TDY Green Berets who were assigned by the CIA as ARSOs (assistant regional safety officers) were badly wounded and were treated for multiple gunshot wounds after they rescued over 20 civilian CIA workers from the compound.
The single question that needs to be asked is: Were the rounds taken out of the wounded ARSOs 7.62 mm or 5.56 mm? And when the answer comes back 5.56 mm, it opens the door to the proof that the cover up was meant to hide the fact that the Obama administration had been caught once again arming offshore groups that did not have the interests of our country at heart. It would open the door to proof that Benghazi was Fast and Furious on Steroids.

Fast and Furious
And do you mean 7.62x39 or 7.62.51? The former is “easy”, if it’s the latter, then that opens up a can o’ worms on the platform.
What killed the ambassador?
Bullets? Smoke inhalation? Beating?
7.62x51 is .308 caliber. Why would that open a can of worms?
He was "Vince Fostered" by muslim surrogates.
M14 or M60!
.556 or 7.62x51 are both NATO. Since the answer is
.556 no question.
Unless, of course, we are arming the militants with AK type rifles, because they are readily available in the Middle East.
“.556 no question.”
Think they can distinguish between wounds caused by 5.56 and 5.45x39?
And Hillary! is being combative. The best defense is an offense. And there is no one more successful than Hillary! at being wildly offensive.
Could be AK-74 rounds (5.45mm)
The Winchester 308 is different from the M43.
There may have been one or two shell casings left on the ground.
7.62 NATO max 2.75
.308 Win max 2.80
Any questions yet from Vince Foster?
“There may have been one or two shell casings left on the ground.”
That would be the smart way to do it but it sounds like they are looking at recovering bullets from the wounds.
“The single question that needs to be asked is: Were the rounds taken out of the wounded ARSOs 7.62 mm or 5.56 mm?
It is talked about that Woods and the other X-Marine (there is no such things as X-Marines) were plying their trade with 50BMG when the mortar rounds took them out.
Remember that this was not an embassy nor a consulate, but a mission (that happened to have an annex for gun running). That annex was where the weapons were stored.
RUBO! And your lying Der Hilderbeast.
I would imagine today, all the casings found at the scene will be loaded into a hopper the scanned individually. Then the tool marks entered into a database. It would be so easy to xref casings from all scenes and trace the flow of weapons.
