Funny they wanted tracking devices on guns sent to Mexico, but the last thing they want is guns sent to Syria to be tracked.

All we can do is watch and pray that there are still some good guys in places that will still protect this country and OUR national interests.

My understanding is that the F&F guns did NOT have tracking devices. Bob

One last: Noone knows how many Americans were in Benghazi the night of the attack. My CIA source asked last night: ‘What’s taking so long!?’

I understand from knowing LEO that work undercover why names would be changed and why others would not want to blow their cover or cover story, BUT why so many? What was so valuable they followed crew to annex?
Why get the ambassador and the Turk involved? Why wait till the Turk left to attack? Why not just attack annex in the first place?

Pray that just one comes forward. He must be protected!

So Obama is profiling? :) thanks for link. Funny how the NSA can find folks that have googled ‘pressure cookers’ and send armed agents within a few hours..but real threats by AQ and Islamists are always ‘non specific’ and ‘general chit chat’.

Remember the warning about the enemy being here in DC ?
Or whatever it was. We’ve all talked about civil war or coup or whatever
My thoughts most recently is we’ve been looking at the trees— trying to identify them and are missing the forest.

Combine what we know about Bill Ayers and his groups goal
The Chicago Street gang in BO neighborhood and their goals and connections to Libya and Gadaffi
Then add the FBI under WithHOlder their lack of interest in the above situation IMO they didn’t have to send anyone they were already there. Maybe undercover maybe not
Now we see a large number of CIA in ONE PLACE. Not working in small groups or individually with contacts
IS Tapped being played again? Or is he a player?

That is what I fear. We already know they have no regard for the safety of our troops and will use them for cannon fodder if if will help them politically.

BTW...lots of military jet traffic coming out of a joint reserve base near me this morning. Could be nothing but still noteworthy. Have not heard this much activity in awhile.

I have seen reports that indicate that the State Department (Hillary) was giving the Rebels the Javelin Antitank / Smart Mortar System which is Top Secret and some of the Russian's newest MANPADS that were captured from other sources as part of a deal that when the Rebels won they would return them.

The CIA was there to recover ALL of the weapons that the State Dept. had sent them so that they could send them to Syria.

If this is true then that is a very big violation of American Law and TREASON on the part of the Hitlery Beast and Obuma including anyone else who was in on it.

The Javelin System is a Fire & Forget weapon that never misses! It can be fired like a Mortar or as a Antitank weapon and it can even take out low flying Helicopters.

The new Russian MANPAD is also extremely good and can knock out our Helicopters & Planes. Which means that if a rescue had been sent in they would have been shot down with American & Russian weapons given to them by the State Dept. The Obuma did not want another Blackhawk down scenario being played out just before the election so he let them die so he could win his second term!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

....stinger missiles and WMDS.

AFAIK, they weren't Stingers. In all likeliness they were Chinese FN-6's or possibly Soviet SA-7's. They were Muammar Qaddafi's inventory.

Flashback: ‘Jihadis Threaten to Burn U.S. Embassy in Cairo’

by
Bryan Preston

August 2, 2013 - 9:46 am

CNN’s twin scoop — that the CIA is using polygraphs to muzzle Benghazi survivors, and that there were 56 CIA personnel in Benghazi during the attack on Septmber 11, 2012 — should re-open the so-called “phony scandal” to renewed investigation. The State Department’s global travel warning and widespread embassy shuttering today should also renew interest in the current strength of al Qaeda and its allies.

While Congress and the media examine the Benghazi attack, they should take a look at a brief post published here at the Tatler on the afternoon of September 10, 2012. Here it is in full, translated by Raymond Ibrahim. We published it at 4:20 pm Pacific time, September 10, 2012.

Jihadi groups in Egypt, including Islamic Jihad, the Sunni Group, and Al Gamaa Al Islamiyya have issued a statement threatening to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to the ground.

According to El Fagr, they are calling for the immediate release of the Islamic jihadis who are imprisoned and in detention centers in the U.S. including Guantanamo Bay: “The group, which consists of many members from al-Qaeda, called [especially] for the quick release of the jihadi [mujahid] sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman [the ‘Blind Sheikh’], whom they described as a scholar and jihadi who sacrificed his life for the Egyptian Umma, who was ignored by the Mubarak regime, and [President] Morsi is refusing to intervene on his behalf and release him, despite promising that he would. The Islamic Group has threatened to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo with those in it, and taking hostage those who remain [alive], unless the Blind Sheikh is immediately released.”

The following day, jihadists made good on the threat. They attacked the American embassy in Cairo, Egypt. While they failed to burn the embassy to the ground as promised and did not secure the release of the blind sheik as they intended, they did scale the walls and they did replace the American flag with the black flag of Islam.

During that foreshadowed attack, the U.S. embassy in Cairo engaged in a tweet war. Its Twitter feed was among the first to blame the attack on an obscure amateur movie.

I believe the dinner Hillary had with obama was to discuss the plan of action. The picture showed her and obama having a salad. The real meeting involved many other people from both sides.

The Clinton gang and the obama gang are pretending to help each other while both are trying to figure out how to blame it on the other. They both said “Let’s have a meeting and see if we can figure out the other’s game plan.”

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

Maybe someone ought to count our tactical nukes.
