Shock New Benghazi book: Brennan was running secret operations in Libya
Daily Mail ^ | Michael Zennie

Posted on 02/10/2013 2:24:48 PM PST by JohnPDuncan

(Deputy National Security Advisor) John Brennan also ran a highly compartmentalized program out of the White House in regard to weapons transfers, and Stevens would not have been trusted with that type of information. Stevens likely helped consolidate as many weapons as possible after the war to safeguard them, at which point Brennan exported them overseas to start another conflict.

Elite counter-terrorist operators from America’s Delta Force were deployed to Libya as 'analysts,' which allowed President Obama to declare that America did not have any boots on the ground but was simply providing air support for the rebels.

Behind closed doors, President Obama had given his counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, carte blanche to run operations in North Africa and the Middle East, provided he didn’t do anything that ended up becoming an exposé in The New York Times and embarrassing the administration. In 2012, a secret war across North Africa was well underway.

With JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command), Brennan waged his own unilateral operations in North Africa outside of the traditional command structure.

With a small element launching from an airfield in a European nation, JSOC operations targeted Al Qaeda personalities within Libyan militia organizations. In the weeks before the Benghazi tragedy, they most likely hit a known associate of Al-Suri in order to get him to “up periscope” and increase his visibility, which would then make it possible for JSOC to run a targeted operation to kill or capture him.

The aftermath of one of these secret raids into Libya would have grave consequences for all of them, including former Navy SEALs Ty Woods and Glen Doherty. SOFREP believes the Benghazi attack on 9/11/12 was blowback from the late-summer JSOC operations that were threatening the Al Qaeda-aligned militant groups.

Who do you think Brennan was taking his orders from?

The man who nominated him for the CIA??

We are in the hands of the Muslims, the head one sitting in the White House.

Still in denial that our republican Senators put the traitor John Kerry as SOS.Unfrigginbelievable,

it’s quite possibly it... check the article I posted... I had to edit most of it for excerpt. apparently the WH were running operations in Libya and this is what led to the attack.

It was retaliation and Brennen was gun running from the CIA annex.

Apparently Stevens didn’t know what was going on and if he had they would have beefed up security. He had no idea he was a sitting target...

So is this why Panetta claims he and Hillary knew nothing about the gun-running? Brennan was doing it all?

This is a huge story. It should derail Brennan’s CIA nomination. I say “should”.

But what was Ambassador Stevens doing in Behghazi anyway, meeting with a Turkish official? It sounds as if Ambassador Stevens was coordinating a gun running operation and Sept 11 was as good a time as any (better, in fact) to strike.

The man from the State Dept. that was in one of the first hearings. “The Taliban is inside the building.” Or something like that.

Eric Nordstram. He was a security officer for Libya I think. He was trying to get more security based on what they were seeing on the ground in Libya. If the story is true about Brennan running secret op’s, “stirring up the hornet’s nest” in Libya, AND State had no idea they were doing it, they might not have realized how serious the situation really was.

Brennan is a Muslim convert. He converted in Saudi Arabia in the 1990s.

Turn it over in your mind:

1. The Libyan op release almost 20 THOUSAND MANPADS missiles onto the black market.

2. The end-users were KNOWN to be proto Al Qaeda.

3. The op was secret from both the DOD and the CIA.

3. The man in charge of this is a Muslim, and his boss, the Prez, is also widely rumored to be a Muslim.

well well well

Casts light on the very curious question of why Brennan’s role and whereabouts during Benghazi (the prez top counterterrorist advisor - not called in during a terrorist attack on a US ambassador?) havent even been mentioned in the press much less the US small-c congress

Brenann did make a trip to Benghazi after the fact... why? To get his story straight and cover his tracks? Who got his report? Di-Fi? Anyone?

btw- WHERE ARE THE SURVIVORS? They couldn’t all have been spooks. What no interviews with the NYT?

Man o man, do we need wikileaks to find out what our own govt is up to?

Brennan doesn't take orders from obama

Brennan pwns obama

Brennan's operatives broke into the State Department passport files in ‘08 and cleaned out obama’s history and that of his family and probably friends too

Now, who pwns Brennan?

So, Obama supports the Libyan rebels, but, starts to kill them? Why would he do that?

Interestingly, there is also some speculation at to the possible connection between the maker of “the video” with the passport breach case. Brennan is mentioned in this article:

John, I went to the SOFREP site first thing this a.m. but the ebook is only available to a kindle device through amazon. I have an iPad and it won’t work. :-( I guess I’ll have to wait for other reports unless they open it up to other reader devices.
