Skip to comments.Dangerous Times: Still Missing the Strategic Meaning of Benghazi
Posted on 05/03/2014 10:03:40 AM PDT by Sioux-san
Strategy comes before tactics. Strategic goals dictate tactical actions. Today we are allowed to talk about the obvious tactical lies and malfeasances that the Obama administration blew in our faces in the Benghazi fiasco and its aftermath, but not about its strategic meaning. But Obamas secret policies have also been exposed to public view with the Benghazi fiasco. It is now clear that since Obama came to power, the U.S. government has overturned all the fundamental values that have characterized American policy from Thomas Jefferson onward. Under Obama we have secretly joined the terrorist side in the Jihad War. That is the strategic meaning of Benghazi.
In any other administration that would be unbelievable, but consider the facts.
1) 500 million dollars in arms to al-Qaeda in Syria.
Intelligence analyst Clare Lopez and a group of distinguished retired military and intelligence experts released a statement last week that was quickly covered up by the media. It was too dangerous to headline. In Britain the Daily Mail made it a one-day headline story, but it deserves to be repeated until we truly understand it.
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....

Interesting word choice, of us being “allowed” to discuss certain aspects of Benghazi, but not others.
To paraphrase, somebody said Benghazi happened two years ago, dude. The White House and the liberals want us to not say anything about it.
To paraphrase a screeching Hillary, we have the right to debate and disagree with ANY administration!!!!
Disappear the 99 mullahs, and the world instantly becomes a much safer and happier planet.
Thanx for keeping this alive
When “we” elected a person who was educated and raised as a Muslim all of that was to be forgotten

And this would have been brought down, if it were a presidency in the historic sense.
But what we have in the White Hut now is not a presidency, it is a regime. With a scheme. Taken to the extreme.
Leveraged first to the Muslim Brotherhood takedown of the Mubarak government in Egypt, and the resulting civil unrest, then pivoting to Libya to take out Gaddaffi, which was to support leverage to again pivot to Syria, to attempt to take down Bashar al-Assad.
Only, something happened on the way to bringing the entire Middle East to a ferment, when the al-Qaeda affiliate in Libya wouldn’t play ball, or at least accept the very generous offer of support from the Current Regime now squatting in the White Hut.
And now the Current Occupant gets no respect anywhere in the world, except in the very hard-core Left in this country. And even they despise him behind his back.
Just was not ready for prime time.
"And as Ukrainian forces move to restore order in eastern Ukraine, it is obvious to the world that these Russian-backed groups are not peaceful protestors. They are heavily armed militants who are receiving significant support from Russia."
So the president says it is obvious that heavily armed militants are not protestors. When heavily armed militants attacked the consulate in Benghazi with mortars and RPGs, shouldn't it have been equally as obvious?
0bama is a Muslim terrorist! Who knew? Oh, that’s right, we did.
only the ones paying attention know Obama is a muslim terrorist- there are still too many who don’t believe it but can be convinced- those who know and don’t care are the Enemy... should be treated as such.
Your quote says it all:
Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new, wonderful, good society which shall now be Romes
We have a high concentration of such at FR but there are many others as well.
Good to know - I need new friends (
Colonel Peters was on OR this week. He said anyone with military experience would have a response team to Benghazi. That’s what we have already down and still did up to the point the Hero of Benghazi went up stairs to go to bed and just let things take their course.
The pix you posted illustrate the problem.
