No, it leads to the Muslim Brotherhood...
What a dilemma.. Hillary backs Morsi and Morsi attacks the Embassy to get Stevens as hostage to get the Blind Sheik released.
Kind of difficult for 0bama/Hillary to announce that the people who did it are the ones they back, and the ones the U.S. taxpayers were funding in Egypt. Now 0bama is paying ANYONE in Egypt with knowledge to keep their mouths shut. 0bama is BIG on hush money. Lots of lies to keep secret.
Why? What was in it for them?
The article address that possibility albeit indirectly. I make this connection: The Muslim Brotherhood supports al Qaeda and to a lesser extent the other Syrian rebels, the current beneficiaries of the arms that move from Libya to Turkey to Syria.
Why on earth would the Muslim Brotherhood want to interfere with that flow?
The answer is they wouldn't. The article speculates that it is the Iranians who would want to put the crunch on such an operation. Not a bad theory.
I speculated in an earlier thread that the Libya to Turkey to Syria operation might somehow be bypassing the al-Qaeda rebels. Although that seems unlikely it is a possible motive that would give some credence to your Muslim Brotherhood theory. Particularly if al-Qaeda has independent means to secure Libyan weapons and view the CIA operation as a competitor.
I appreciate the comments, but I’m not sure that holds water, using the logic in the article. And I’m not saying I totally believe the article’s logic, but it is an interesting thought.
My problem with your suggesting, is that I don’t think the Muslim Brotherhood registers as negatively as Al Qaeda does on the political Richter scale. It would be even less an affront to American sensitivities than supplying Al Qaeda would be.
I’d have to say the Iran angle carries a lot more water here, if you’re truly desperate to hide something.
Now, what I don’t get, is why you arm Iran? How does that play into Bathhouse Barry’s game plan? Does he want Iraq and Afghanistan to come unglued that bad?
Is there another angle I’m missing?
Of course, it leads to the Muslim Brotherhood, but so does Al Qaeda. The militia that attacked Benghazi was Al Qaeda related and they did it with arms that Obama had helped them obtain to overthrow Gaddafi. Those militias were not ready to give up their arms, even to send them to Syria to help the brothers. Libya is still not secure and trying to disarm those militias is a dangerous job.
