Benghazi attack could have been prevented if US hadnīt 'switched sides in the War on Terror'
Daily Mail ^ | 4/22/14 | David Martosko

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Wow. This is from the UK Daily Mail, which is a credible media source.

“US Ambassador Chris Stevens was to be captured and traded for ‘blind sheikh’ Omar Abdel-Rahman, who hatched the 1993 WTC bombing plot”

But self-selected citizens groups aren’t exactly anything official.

At last someone gets it - Obama, Cameron, the UN have all betrayed any strategic interest all for the sake of giving the Islamists what they want and I won’t believe for a second that Obama did not know what he was doing. They continue to arm the rebels in Syria even though they know only too well where the arms are going!

Gadaffi had mellowed in his old age and even helped the USA after 9/11 against Al Quaeda. Hillary and Obammy threw him under the bus in favor of Al Quaeda.

The Scorpion and the Frog

A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the
scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The
frog asks, “How do I know you won’t sting me?” The scorpion
says, “Because if I do, I will die too.”

The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of
paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
but has just enough time to gasp “Why?”

Replies the scorpion: “Its my nature...”

Well Obama did topple Egypt's Mubarak and Libya's Gaddafi ... and was going after Syria's Assad when his weapons depot in Benghazi got hijacked.

I always thought it was curious in the last presidential debate that Romney dropped the subject of Benghazi proper, and honed directly on Russia.

This article apparently posted on the internet November 3, 2012 gives so interesting food for thought.

This could have been stopped by 2 AC-130s laying down enough firepower to quell anything.

Note to Speaker John Boehner: This is part of the Documentation File for the upcoming Impeachment of B. Hussein Obama to be used by the House Special Prosecutor on Benghazi that has not yet been appointed by you as Speaker of the US House of Representatives, for reasons known only to yourself and Obama.

* Personal comment footnote:

With each passing day that the US House Members do not replace Speaker Boehner, Speaker (?) Johnny Boehner is becoming THE Poster Boy for what is rotten in the formerly GREAT Republican Party.
