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.

I'm betting it's a whole lot worse than that...

Some of the comments reveal the need for more real information and less fake information that is fed to us through the news media.

If Obama indeed followed the law, some people on these committees know some of the truth at least.

http://intelligence.house.gov/

http://www.intelligence.senate.gov/

And even more interesting IMHO, is that leaders in both committees are slowing walking and obstructing a full investigation or a select committee investigation. Most on our side in these committees are rinos.

Something very wicked going on in this country right now.

So why only close on Sunday? Why not today or Monday too? Seems very odd..timed to get news off Benghazi for Sunday shows IMHO.

I think (pure speculation) that we were buying the Iraqi WMD’s from Syrian rebels in exchange for various armaments and intelligence reports.
************
And what a charming speculation it is. Historical if true. Of course it would be history making, vis a vie the rationale for the Iraqi War, to the Freepers and a few others. The masses will never know the truth.

I’m not sure whether to hope you are right or wrong.

“...that elements in our own CIA moved (WMDs) from Iraq to Syria with help from the Russian government before and during the Iraq War.”

Uhh, because the CIA was actually allied with Saddam and helping Assad, -who they’re now supposedly not helping, and hiding WMDs to embarrass Bush and prevent our troops from confiscating them? Oh, of course Bush was the mastermind behind it all, silly me.

DU much?

There have been comments in the past that the CIA assisting the afghans against the soviets... shipped them stinger shoulder weapons against the HIND-24 helicopter gunships. They also funded and trained mujahideen “fighters”-— one of whom was usama bin-laden, as a leader with funding of his own as a member of the saudi’s construction family of choice.

Libs were quick to say that we created bin-laden and he came to bite us, and now they are in power and it’s OK? Taking their line— “how many new usamas are being trained and created by the US, to continue the “war on terror”— ie. finding enemies”. Like what was said after the “cold war” was over-— whom do we need these weapon systems for? And now the surplus mil hardware is being bought by our own police— for what? Answer: a police state of liberals, but also “conservative, law and order” of an elitist new world order ruling class, and the arms makers/dealers (who also get a pass on obamacare— see Boeing).

Arming the muslim brotherhood and alqaeda is a scandal of massive proportions (much more so than iran-contra). This needs to be shouted from the mountaintops.

August 4 is the Muslim holiday Laylat al-Qadr .

Laylat al-Qadr (Arabic: لیلة القدر‎) (also known as Shab-e-Qadr , loaned from Persian), variously rendered in English as the Night of Destiny, Night of Power, Night of Value, the Night of Decree or Night of Measures. It is the anniversary of two very important dates in Islam that occurred in the month of Ramadan. It is the anniversary of the night Muslims believe the first verses of the Quran were revealed to the Islamic prophet Muhammad.

"hide the WMDS"

penelopesire, been trying to tell people from the beginning. This is petraeus' forte. There was a LOT of money to be made rounding up and moving saddam's weapons and good people died around that too.

Many of the people behind that were connected to darpa. One of the contacts who was being informed about it was the same Congressman who was working with Tony Shaffer. He has since become almost a hermit and the agent who had the evidence was killed in broad daylight in front of his hotel. His laptop full of info and names was stolen.

Perdogg, this is the reason petraeus was moved over to the cia.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

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’.

Would anybody in the US really care if the Syrian opposition shot down a Syrian plane with a Libyan missile? The Democrats know that’s not an issue. It’s something bigger. Why did Hillary and Obama use US taxpayer funded personnel, equipment and facilities to overthrow the government of Libya?

I must have missed some of your posts on that. Some new info there that I was unaware of to say the least. So Petraeus...good..bad? Why did Bush administration let the lie that there were never WMDS in Iraq stand? I never understood that. Was he clueless? Did someone convince him our national security was at stake if he let cat out of bag? So many questions. Who,is the hermit congressman and the person who was killed with evidence? Evidence of what?

Indeed. The big push to arm Syrian rebels (”legally”) is because when this story breaks, the legislators just say, “ arming Syrian rebels? So what? We’re doing it with the consent of government!”

37 evacuees or so.. What’s news about that? I guess ‘news’ would be that 0bama was operating A SECRET CIA PRISON THERE!! Was THAT the motive for the Benghazi attack? I still think Stevens was set-up to be taken hostage in exchange for the Blind Sheik though.

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.

AKA arming Al-Queda with US made surface-to-air missiles...

Still, there's a lot of talk of how this was supposed to be a snatch-job, where the ambassador was kidnapped, to be exchanged with the "Blind Sheik."

Yep...pretty strange accusation from the left field..lol.

Whatever is causing this massive coverup is hugh and series. It has been reported that it has the O administration ‘terrified’. What is so big that would cause that kind of panic? Certainly not gun running to Syria that had the approval of some republicans like McCain et al on the intelligence committees. They could easily dodge that scandal by saying it was ‘bipartisan’, blah..blah..blah. Nope..it is something bigger. Has to be.

On the other hand, this could simply be the beginning of the Obammunist disinformation campaign to blame Benghazi on the CIA. Kills two birds with one stone: gets the blame off of Obama(and more importantly, Hillary for President) and throws the CIA under the bus. One of those classic win-win situations for the Democrat/Progressive/Fascist/Marxist/Racist Party.

“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.”

Please remember Hillary’s testimony before Congress. She was asked point-blank if arms were being traded from Benghazi through Turkey.

She replied to the question with seeming disbelief and dismissal, scorn and derision: “Turkey?” -— As if the questioner had said Disneyland. She mocked and then denied the allegation.

If it turns out to be true, that is and “What difference does it make?” are the only clips her opponent needs to run, over and over, in 2016.

Guess we’ll know in a few hours. Otoh the thought passed my mind that if all are on lockdown could a major operation take place without SS knowledge. By closing all it expands the area that others can watch— spreads them too thin.

Watch for tweets and other net sources to let us know if any unusual convoys or movements occur in the ME.
