‘This is the one’: Drudge editor’s CIA source raises key question about Benghazi bombshell

In May, Drudge editor Joseph Curl tweeted that a CIA source said there was still one more Obama scandalpalooza shoe to drop. “Yes, four shoes. Dead ambassador, tapped phones, IRS probes. Will it be worse? Can it be?!” he asked. After the Fox News/DOJ scandal broke, Curl’s source suggested the White House was still sitting on something explosive that had “top aides terrified.”

Would that be the fifth shoe? The sixth? With all these “phony” scandals, it’s hard to keep track.

On Thursday, CNN revealed that dozens of CIA operatives were on the ground in Benghazi during the Sept. 11 attack and suggested that the government is using intimidation to keep them quiet. On a late-night call, Curl’s CIA source said, “This is the one.”

Curl’s source asks a key question: What were all those agents doing in Libya?

According to CNN:

Speculation on Capitol Hill has included the possibility the U.S. agencies operating in Benghazi were secretly helping to move surface-to-air missiles out of Libya, through Turkey, and into the hands of Syrian rebels.

Midnight call from my CIA source. 'This is the one.' Said the real question is why all those agents were in Benghazi. http://t.co/4ELMQMffRE— Joseph Curl (@josephcurl) August 2, 2013

Yes we did. This is simply tying up a loose end. Curl said there was more to come- and now his source tells him THIS is the ‘more’.

I thought it was common knowledge that MANPAD’s in Libya were being sent to Syria via Turkey.

Can't we just ask Putin to ask Snowden?

Remember the news media blasting away at Nixon's “illegal incursion into Cambodia” (an invasion into a sanctuary for commies who were killing US personnel and trying to overthrow a US ally), 24/7 coverage, calls for congressional hearings, pillorying of Nixon daily for expanding a war (the dems started). Today, crickets as a president and his allies in crime Thighs Clinton and the CIA violate laws concerning involvement in foreign wars without Congressional knowledge. Not only that, arming those who killed 3000 us citizens on 9/11. This is monstrous. The firing squad is too good for them IMO.

Your overestimate the knowledge level of those who aren’t Freepers. We are about 20 steps ahead of the rest of the world with information- we have to wait for them to catch up.

I fear that the real truth is even more horrific....stinger missiles and WMDS. WMDS that elements in our own CIA moved from Iraq to Syria with help from the Russian government before and during the Iraq War. One thing is certain though..we have treasonous activity going on within our own government.

“Speculation on Capitol Hill has included the possibility the U.S. agencies operating in Benghazi were secretly helping to move surface-to-air missiles out of Libya, through Turkey, and into the hands of Syrian rebels.”

Hmm ... is there more to the story of why all those agents were in Benghazi?

I’m shocked that CNN (Communist News Network)even acknowledges Benghazi, but I’m afraid you could drop a whole truckload of shoes and you won’t get widespread coverage of the story and you won’t get ANY action out of the worthless POSs, Boehner and McConnell!

The day this happened, I told my nephew this was a gun running operation. Others said the same. And that’s what this is. Obama acting unilaterally. But I bet Graham and McCain knew. That’s why they want to kill this thing.

Correct.

We all knew there was gun running going on.

But there are guns and then there are BIG GUNS.

So I suspect the dark secret is....what kind of armaments, whether they were classified as top secret, and most important: to whom were they going?

obumbler has been playing footsie with some people who are very dangerous and who would destroy us given the chance.

Libya was a Russian client state so whatever surface to air they had in theater was most likely older Russian. We never lost anything when providing air cover to the rebels so I doubt the “big gun” is older Russian surface to air. I’m not not playing the threat these weapons could pose to civilian aircraft. I just don’t see the surface to air as being the reason so many CIA were in Libya.

I agree. This is about Saddam Husein’s WMD’s.

After the Soviet Union fell, we bought quite a few USSR nuclear bombs for cash (several hundred million $ each)and disarmed them at Oak Ridge.

I think (pure speculation) that we were buying the Iraqi WMD’s from Syrian rebels in exchange for various armaments and intelligence reports.

If the WMD angle is true, GWB was fully justified in invading Iraq. The Democrats could not tolerate this news getting out.

The monthly polygraphs, name changing, etc. is pretty extreme. Just running guns would not be enough to cause this reaction.

I have no specific knowledge to verify all of this, but it is my hunch from reading FR since 1998.

Jake Tapper has been awfully quiet over on Twitter since this news came out on CNN. Wonder IF he has been summoned to the White House for his beat down to keep quiet?

Reagan was sending weapons to the Contras who were fighting the Communist regime.

Obama is sending weapons to Al Qaeda.

Why are there no Congressional hearings? Because the GOP also favors sending weapons to Al Qaeda.

But who is to say that old Libya weapons were all that was/is going to Syria jehadists?

What if some of our classified weapons are being smuggled to them under the pretense that it is just old outdated stuff?

I think this is something bigger than old out of date Russian weapons.

Otherwise, why the panic in DC?

Another interesting point touched on in an earlier post....

Why so much pressure on CIA agents to keep quiet?

I suspect because some CIA agents are so torn between following orders and their patriotism that they are seriously considering becoming whistle blowers and that scares obumbler.

Read into the night about that Chicago Street gang connected to JJ and the neighborhood O represented. They are still responsible for many of the murders going down in Chicago and apparently have connections with both MB and al Quida.
In earlier reading thought the gun running was from here to Libya But they were/are it appears wanting the big guns here. They already have/had targets picked out.
So are these same people who attacked the CIA their contacts in Libya?
The gang is involved with the race baiters supporting the hooded one who could be O son
That’s why o’really is not making any progress with his questions re race. He’s only seeing one tree.
Coincidence that Ayres lives in the same neighborhood. Keeping all domestic terrorists together ?

Yes we’ve known this from the beginning.

So when these nice, heart eating freedom fighters turn on us just like Al Queda did I wonder how many of us will pay the price by being shot out of the air?

Why don’t these idiots learn - or is Obama really determined to help the Islamists. And I’d still like to know why he went to bed that night, seemingly unconcerned about our Ambassador. Same question for the witch.

I thought it was common knowledge that MANPAD’s in Libya were being sent to Syria via Turkey.

I guess if you investigate on the internet, Beck, Free Republic and other sources, this is an old headline. However, what is interesting to me is that after Obama started touting the "phoney" scandal more leaks came out. Apparently the intel community wants this story out. When the MSM lapdogs started following the Obama line of phony scandals, more info is released to the MSM.

Also of interest is this is breaking on CNN with Jack Tapper. Apparently, CNN wants to get back into the news game and did not just hire Tapper as a token and then neuter him.

The whole Helted Skelter scenerio came to mind and how they were trying to start race riots. IIRC Ayres also had that in mind. What really hit me was a comment about getting their goal established by working from the inside. Was this referring to JJ and his run for president or is O their second try

We know that O organized the same territory that the gang controlled he also represented them in state government But we know only a few of their names - the ones sent up to live their time with leader who was running gang from prison. Who’s running it now?

I imagine all kinds of crap is going on at different levels.

Another curious silence comes from Catherine Herridge and/or Jennifer Griffin. Usually if another network has a scoop or adds to a sourced story, Catherine will follow up within hours with confirmation or to refute. And she does have excellent sources.

As I’m typing this I just thought of AP and James Rosen. Maybe some of Catherine’s sources have gotten cold feet???

Sure, this is the last shoe.

Who gives a shit. They do whatever they want and no one cares. I’m kind of a youngster when it comes to politics. But can someone tell me where in the Constitution does it give the majority leader in the Senate soooo much power. As dirty as Reid is, you mean to tell me that there’s not one thing that they can wrap him up in.

And shame on the NRA, for supporting that scumbag for so long. They must have something on him, but I guess their survival and power is so much more important than the people of this country.
