Skip to comments.Stunner! Benghazi Was a Base for Illegal Arms Shipments to Syria

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 wasnt authorized by Congress and it is a blatant violation of law. The CIA claims they were only liaisons with MI-6 and they didnt 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

What difference at this point, does it make? /SARCASM
Maybe we can have an investigation now?
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.
” shipping arms from Libya through Turkey to Syrian rebels before we realized they were al-Qaida”
Freepers were already on this....bttt
Freepers posted this information here on the night we learned that the clowns in the White House allowed four Americans to be murdered by the Muzzies in Benghazi.
So what we thought all along was true. We need that video compilation of all the Benghazi lies/talking points.
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.
They knew damned well that they were providing arms to al Qaeda. That was the whole point.
Didn’t we already know this? (and by “we” I mean those here at FR)
As well as what was Hillary doing during that ‘three AM’ call?
“The reason the government lied was probably to conceal an illegal operation to arm Syrian rebels. Ambassador Stevens was the coordinator.”
Well color me purple
I think quit a few of us suspected this was the reason all along.
He was doing what was planned for him to do....nothing.
