Exclusive: Confidential source reveals to me what really happened in Benghazi
allenbwest.com ^ | May 23, 2014 | Allen West

Posted on 05/23/2014 4:17:44 PM PDT by don-o

Today as I returned from Detroit, I had a moment that I truly felt was God sent, as I don’t believe in coincidences. It happened on one of my flights, and it was two hours I will never forget.

I was seated beside someone who personally knew one of the men who was there on the roof in Benghazi. This person was excited to share with me the “ground truth” of what happened September 11, 2012.

My seat mate drew schematics to orient me to the “time and spacing” and the direction of the attack. I learned about the repeated orders to the men at the CIA annex to stand down and do nothing — thank God two of them, Glenn Doherty and Ty Woods, lived up to their code of honor and ran to the sound of the guns, resulting in their loss of life — but the preservation of life for others, their fellow Americans.

I learned about the proximity of the staging area of the attack to the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, and the attackers were indeed Ansar al-Sharia, a group affiliated with al-Qaida. I came to understand why Ambassador Chris Stevens was there in the first place and that he had in fact requested better security but was denied – the question is, by whom? And I learned that the Martyrs of 17 February Brigade were in charge of security and were the ones who opened the gates, then fled.

I learned there are those who are being threatened with their pensions being cut off if they come forth to speak.

And I learned, as I presumed, that there was a covert weapons scheme going on in Libya, Benghazi.

It's hard for me to get perspective. FR has been on this from the get go. But, has it gotten much exposure even on Fox? I mean the weapons dealing piece.

I once sat next to a petroleum engineer for an hour and a half flight from Tulsa to Atlanta.

It was actually one of the most interesting conversations one could imagine. Gasoline, octane, oil etc. is fascinating if the guy really knows what he is talking about.

“A fog of lies, deceit, manipulation, threats, intimidation, coercion, abandonment, and worst of all, potentially treason.”

This puts the whole thing in a nutshell.

The weapons running is essentially a known known. What is unknown is the response and cover-up in DC and to what level decisions were made.

I believe all actions, inactions, spin, and orders came from the Committee to Reelect the President — not State or Defense.

Axelrod called the shots. Put him under oath.

Sure, all politicians lie and even cheat.

But when cheating and lying is the basis for your entire policy framework, things will collapse on themselves eventually.

The weapons to Libya, then to Syria line has been in the wind for a while.

And it is probably why the administration and all the king’s men (media and Democrats) are rallied around him (and Hillary by extension.)

They can’t/won’t tell why there HAD to be a consular mission in Benghazi, they can’t/won’t tell why and specifically who ordered the stand downs from minute 1, they can’t/won’t tell us where Obama was and what he was doing, and on and on and on and on.

There is much treason afoot here, and it is an odor most foul.

Putting Axelrod under oath means nothing if you don’t have the conclusive evidence to prove that he is lying under oath. There is not one ounce of honor in this whole damned Executive Branch (and apparently, the agencies they control directly).

Once, traveling on business, I sat next to a guy who said he ran his own company, who for the entire flight insisted that the letter "g" in "paradigm" was not silent. Even the person in the seat across the aisle sided with me trying to convince this guy.

Most annoying flight ever... hearing the word "paradijim" over and over and over...

Gotta be careful... this has been on FR for almost 3 years that weapons were being run.

I know West is a smart dude... but chances of him sitting next to someone like that are very small. If it was not an accident, we’re being set up.

Look for proof Mr. Gowdy as I’m sure you will.

1. WH called YouTube PRIOR to the time the WH claimed CIA told the WH of the YT connection. The WH was able to whip out the Nikoula B.S. so fast cuz he was a pre-planned fall-back asset.

2. The fact the SEALS were lasing targets was probably because someone at the WH was trying to get them killed, clearing the way for the kidnapping and pre-election cylops/Stevens swap that would make Obama look like a negotiating genius.

I came to understand why Ambassador Chris Stevens was there in the first place...

The KEY to the whole puzzle.

What did the President know, and when did he know it?

What did the Secretary of State know, and when did she know it?

Agree. But my theory is that several dozen people know the truth about Benghazi but have not come forward. Speculation on why. Axelrod won’t know what/who the committee has on it’s side, so he would be compelled to answer questions honestly. Plus, Axelrod testimony might compel others to come forward.

Not a lawyer, just my thoughts.

More importantly, there is only one person in this country who can authorize such an operation and that is the President so there is absolutely no way obama can duck responsibility or get some underling to take the fall for him.

There is also no way that Hillary cannot be similarly personally implicated because Amb Stevens was totally complicit and taking orders from Hillary.

Now you can understand why trey gowdy decided to lead off with Benghazi
- there is direct , incontrovertible evidence that both Obama and Hillary were personally running guns to al Qaeda- first to Al Qaeda in Libya to overthrow Gaddafi, and then shipping both the U S supplied weapons plus captured Libyan weapons to Al Qaeda in Syria to overthrow Assad and install an Al Qaeda backed government in Syria.

There is absolutly no place for Obama or Clinton to hide from responsibility due to the sensitive nature of the operations and because the formal chain of command does not let weasel out by claiming they were out of the loop on actions that rise to the level of treason

This weapons buy back from the Al Qaida affiliate we gave weapons to for destabilizing Ghaddafi is probably the reason that Obama's administration wanted Ambassador Steven's lips sealed when the sh.. (read without the ellipses) started coming down. If Ambassador Stevens was rescued/lived through the attack, he might have been rattled or angry and spilled the whole, sleazy weapons transfer story. It is better for the administration that Ambassador Stevens is dead once the assault happened.

This is Chappaquiddick on an international level. The White Hut is acting like the late Ted Kennedy after he drowned (actually soffucated) Mary Jo Kopechne in Poucha Pond.

Sorry don-o feeding grandkids ... yes well the people in charge have a history of purposefully putting out false stories that feed into “right wing conspiracies” just to confuse the issue.

They are certainly capable of having it planned - so when it comes out to be bogus they get to say “see I told you it’s just a witch hunt”... etc.

But there was indeed something bad going on in Benghazi. The people in charge will do anything [as we have seen] to keep a lid on it. Anything.

Am still thinking General Petraeus is key to proving the theory though. If General Petraeus was threatened with losing his pension, if he talked, it would be the correct theory.

They key to Bengazi is actually in CAIRO, where the VideoApology engines were primed and revving hot.

WHY?

It ONLY makes sense if the WH had the magical powers of ESP and **KNEW** that SOMETHING was about to happen in utterly riot-free Bengazi.

THAT is why their Cairo DOS lickspittle stoolies dutifully started hyperventilating and apologizing —to provide COVER for what was about to come:

WHAT did they think was about to happen in Bengazi?

A “most shocking” and utterly successful kidnapping of a US Ambassador (who for the purposes of security surely remained unwitting).

And then the magical, vaguely Muslim Obama with all of his sophistication and overseas living experience and muzzie influence would swoop in and negotiate an elegant swap of the creepy, one-eyed Sheik for our beloved Stevens, and WHADDAYA KNOW...?!

It would allll come to fruition juuuust before his squeeker re-election, inducing the type of voter euphoria we showered on Reagan right after his re-elction.

"And I learned, as I presumed, that there was a covert weapons scheme going on in Libya, Benghazi. We had been supplying radical Islamists with weapons against Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi, effectively supplying the enemy and destabilizing that country. And it seems that there was a CIA weapons buy-back program, the aim of which was to ship the retrieved weapons out of Libya through Turkey, and to the Islamist forces in Syria."

"Benghazi and the operations in Libya are shrouded in a fog of lies, deceit, manipulation, threats, intimidation, coercion, abandonment, and worst of all, potentially treason." - Allen West

The perps may have had this kidnap swap as a plan, but that would never have helped Obama. It would have blown him out of the water if he had tried it.

This country is not so far gone that we negotiate with terrorists all out in the open like that.

Three things ... makes the theory absolute if all three questions are answered in the affirmative ...
1. Was General Petraeus blackmailed?
2. Was the turk sent in to bird dog Ambassador Stevens?
3. Did someone, from D.C., send in the turk to bird dog Ambassador Stevens?
Find the answers to these questions and there is the gun being fired, if all are affirmative, and the rest of the theory falls into place with mop up questions (imho).
