Is Assad Shiia? I lose track...
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
August 2, 2013 - 9:46 am
CNNs 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 Departments 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.
Point taken, however we really don’t know yet WTH Obama was giving the terrorists. Not yet. Just various reports. I don’t trust much coming out of our government or media these days....lol.
It wouldn’t be first example of mccain being a traitor.
If your theory is true, wouldn’t Bush and his people know what’s going on? Or are you saying we didn’t start buying from Syrian Rebels until after obama took over.
??I just can’t imagine why the US is the only country closing Embassies and warning its citizens against ME travel. Everybody else is safe but us?
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.”
Maybe someone ought to count our tactical nukes.
The Sum of All Fears (movie, not the book). You know who did it in the book, but the movie sang a different song.
It fits with all the domestic agitating.
Where did you get the idea that he knew about *everything*?
Face to face conversation is typical in mob activity when they don’t want to leave a trail. How far away were they from listening ears?
My theory is that the Assad regime worked with the Russians and stored/buried the WMD’s and guarded them closely.
When the Libyan rebels started to overthrown Assad, Obama’s CIA let it be known that they would “pay” (cash or arms) for the WMD’s to be delivered to them, no questions asked.
Benghazi was the transfer point. That is why there were so many CIA operatives there. many specialists to handle the 20+ year old WMD’s.
Who knows how the deal went down or why it went bad. If it was just a simple arms smuggling operation, why would Amb. Stevens be there and not in the official embassy? Simple — he was to meet with a high-up in the rebel operation and either seal or extend the deal.
VIP’s only show up for high value transactions and then only for the signing. The rebel leaders probably wanted to see Stevens to prove that there were no tricks and that the deal was sanctioned by Obama. Otherwise, it could just be a “Blackwater-style” ruse.
I am just guessing.
Thanks for the explanation.
BFL, interesting stuff about the gangs.
Linking thread with additional information
"I think it is a form of a cover-up, and I think it's an attempt to push it under the rug, and I think the American people are feeling the same way,"
LOL - we could make up a story about a young black man in Benghazi - by the time the New York Times figured out what was happening we'd have the coverage...
