Stunner! Benghazi Was a Base for Illegal Arms Shipments to Syria
Independent Sentinel ^ | April 22, 2014 | Sara Noble

Posted on 04/22/2014 6:31:59 PM PDT by george76

Illegal arms were shipped to Syrian rebels from Libya and this could be the reason Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton lied and claimed the attack on the consulate was the result of a video.

Seymour Hirsch published an investigative report stating that there is an addendum to the Senate Intelligence Committee report which explains what the CIA was doing in Benghazi. Our government was shipping arms from Libya through Turkey to Syrian rebels before we realized they were al-Qaida.

The reason the government lied was probably to conceal an illegal operation to arm Syrian rebels. Ambassador Stevens was the coordinator.

It wasn’t authorized by Congress and it is a blatant violation of law. The CIA claims they were only liaison’s with MI-6 and they didn’t have to get permission from the Senate Intelligence Committee. That is ludicrous. The British had left Benghazi by the time of the attack.

...

The full extent of US co-operation with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar in assisting the rebel opposition in Syria has yet to come to light. The Obama administration has never publicly admitted to its role in creating what the CIA calls a ‘rat line’, a back channel highway into Syria. The rat line, authorised in early 2012, was used to funnel weapons and ammunition from Libya via southern Turkey and across the Syrian border to the opposition. Many of those in Syria who ultimately received the weapons were jihadists, some of them affiliated with al-Qaida

Would like to know if the Turkish Ambassador that visited Ambassador Stevens that night of the attack was the bird dog.

Freepers figured this out the night of Sept. 11, 2012.

What I want to know now is, exactly what was the President doing that night that was more important than tending to the attack on 42 Americans in Benghazi.

So what we thought all along was true. We need that video compilation of all the Benghazi lies/talking points.

How many Christians in Syria have died because of Obama and Hillary Clinton supplied weapons? How many have been tortured and how many girls have been kidnapped and turned into sex slaves for the Jihadis? Under Obama’s malevolent guidance, the US has switched sides in the war on terror.

I said from the beginning 0bama had Stevens taken out. This was our own military acting against a citizen and an ambassador who knew too much.

As usual with this bunch, it's hard to decide between cluelessness and perverseness. Both are more than likely.

Well color me purple

I think quit a few of us suspected this was the reason all along.

No, the Turkish ambassador was just part of the conspiracy to ship arms through to the rebels. Don’t forget, Turkey is siding WITH the rebels, against Assad, and has been looking for a way to pretend Assad has attacked Turkey.

“shipping arms from Libya through Turkey to Syrian rebels before we realized they were al-Qaida”

That must be why we kept supporting them and wanting to fly top cover for them after we found out, until Putin put the kabash on that scheme.

Isn’t he the Admiral (Lyons) relieved of duty because he did not want to stand down or was that General Hamm? I think General Hamm was relieved for not want to stand down. Heck maybe both were relieved of duty that night. Have found little info on testimony to Congress. Most of the testimony was behind closed doors. Would be better for everyone if the truth was known (imho). Maybe the dam-up of information will break soon.

And some Freepers even speculated it was the opening salvo of world war III pitting Russia against the US. And just look at how cozy the US relationship with Russia has become since then.

More like the left knows the info is out there and is unleashing it before Hillary's "inevitability" gets past the point of no return.

The problem for the left is that they are probably not united in their recognition of her problems.

This theory came out of Benghazi early on ... but was downplayed for obvious reasons. Not that a rehash isn't warranted ... but this is not something that is new to the debate.
This is not a "stunner" news story.

correct - long ago this was known on FR. It’s kind of amazing when you think about how that compound was never secured after the attack. Didn’t some reporter wander in and find Ambassador Steven’s journal just lying around in the rubble.

Nothing new here. Special operations guys wrote a book about it. We’ve known the truth for over a year. In five months the Obama criminals, Brennan, Clinton, et al. (Barry didn’t know about it, of course, until reading about it in ‘People’ magazine) will have dodged justice for two years, on just this issue. Justice delayed is justice denied.
