In a radio interview, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, questioned whether the Obama administration may be covering up the role played by the CIA annex in Benghazi in a possible scheme to run guns to rebels in the Middle East.
The annex was attacked Sept. 11 along with the special U.S. mission in Benghazi.
Charged Paul: There has been a lot made of the political cover up of President Obamas administration saying this (Benghazi attack) had something to do with a homemade film from some guy in Los Angeles. But in reality the question is, or the secondary quotation is, why would they do a cover up? What are they covering up?
Paul said he has a feeling that it had something to do with the CIA annex.
You know, a week before the ambassador was killed in Libya, a ship left Libya and docked in Turkey, and it actually interviewed the captain of that ship who said there were arms on board and that he actually witnessed the rebels taking the arms and disputing over who got what, he said. That there were grenade launchers; that there were significant arms being transferred.
Paul said it doesnt prove the CIA was involved but raised the question of the purpose of the annex.
The Libyan government is said not to have known that they were there, he noted. And is that the reason for the cover up? So there are a lot of unanswered questions.
Paul was speaking Sunday night on WABC Radios Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.
Any arming of Middle East rebels would be considered highly controversial. Widespread reports have documented that Syrian and Libyan rebels consist in large part of jihadists, including members of several major al-Qaida groups.
It was not the first time Paul publicly raised

However, there is some unbelievable audio of a 12 minute radio interview with Senator Rand Paul and Aaron Klein from this past Sunday night. Rand Paul has some serious concerns about Obama's potential use of drones (at 7:30 mark) in America.
The audio is probably worth a separate post.
He will be on Hannity in 7 minutes.
Re: Gun Running
"I have no knowledge of that, you have to talk to them (CIA)."
Thanks for the heads up!
“What difference does it make?” /sarc
First guns to Mexican drug cartels, then to America hating jihadists, F-16’s and Abram tanks to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, but disarm the patriotic Americans.
I think I’m starting to detect a pattern here.
