Bureau boss overseeing shipments has Benghazi connections
The State Department bureau tasked with secretly sending to embassies plastic and liquid explosives operates under the guidance of Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, whom a congressional panel last year separately found to be largely responsible for security lapses in Benghazi, WND has learned.
A series of WND articles recently exposed the purchase and international transport of many hundreds of pounds of plastic, sheet and linear explosives along with thousands of containers of high-energy liquid explosives.
Weeks after a State official laughed in response to WNDs inquiry, the department belatedly reacted to a follow-up request for information about how, where and by whom the blasting equipment will be used.
The inquiry sought to determine whether, as contracting documents indicate, State will ship the bombing equipment globally through its Sterling, Virginia-based Diplomatic Pouch and Mail facility, or DPM. Its the primary government facility by which secure pouches and crates are sent to U.S. embassies and consulates.

Where the manpads at.
Can one of those diplomatic pouches hold a nuclear weapon, or would it be too heavy?

DEFENSE NEWS Militia fighters stole hundreds of American-supplied automatic weapons and other equipment in a raid on a Libyan base where the US was training local forces, bringing an abrupt end to the secretive program, a report said Tuesday.
“What use do embassies have for things like this, if not for equipping terrorists and suicide bombers.
Liquid explosives - exactly the reason we can’t bring a bottle of hand lotion on planes.”
That’s EXACTLY the planned use the Obama/Hillary/Kerry regime has for these demolitions. The Muslim Brotherhood and various Islamists are grateful to their brothers & sisters in the Obama regime for their support.
If these items are really for honest, straightforward training acts with foreign governments then why aren’t they being shipped in the normal hazardous material shipping venues instead of State Department pouches ?
Also, certainly these items are NOT travelling aboard commercial airliners are they?
“Diplomatic pouches” are used to avoid examination/detection by host governments. These “pouches” (with their unknown contents) certainly can go via commercial aircraft.
For funding of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Obama friends, the State Department may simply be a “cover” agency for obtaining & transporting such material.
NBC are not just the initials of a media company....
Why do they do this?
How does this even get out to the public?
As incompetent as this administration is, I doubt they can ship rubber bands and paper clips securely and keep track of them.

They are used for rapid destruction of records in case of a breech.
I never knew Patrick was responsible for security lapses in Benghazi.
Not to denigrate or stigmatize the mentally ill, I fully supported Patrick's calling out the need to support the mentally ill when he was a Congressman,
But Patrick himself suffers from Bipolar Disorder, a particularly dangerous disease of the brain that fits the descriptor 'lapse' to a tee.
Bipolar Disorder is a brain disease that exhibits mood swings that are so severe, far beyond our normal mood swings or even out abnormal mood swings, that clinical treatment is required. When it is said that a person has bipolar disorder, we mean they need to be hospitalized at some point, diagnosed and medicated.
Let's be clear, a diagnosis of bipolar disorder is not made for example for a person that is alcoholic, loses their temper and throws lamps across the room or plates smashing against the walls. These are indeed violent swings in temperament.
BPD means the brain itself is deteriorating to the point that madness and loss of mind occurs at periodic episodes that are unpredictable and life threatening to the BPD person and to people around them. It is very similar and in fact related to epileptic seizures.
A person with BPD can be very very charming for days and days. Then when least expected the person develops dark menacing cold eyes as if they have become a dangerous vicious evil animal incapable of human feeling. Many mass murders are the result of BPD episodes.
With treatment BPD persons can be productive and shield themselves and others from the disease episodes. Michael Douglas' beautiful wife Catherine Zeta-Jones is a well-known sufferer of BPD. She is aware when an episode is coming and she locks herself in a special room to protect herself and her children until the episode is past. Again it is very similar to epileptic seizures. For anyone that has had a family member or child with epilepsy, you know what this is like and you can sympathize and support Patrick Kennedy's efforts to help the mentally ill.
But here we have Patrick managing the DPM. This is very wrong, so wrong. This should never be. I am still shaking my head as to understand how this could ever be allowed no matter who the person is or his/her family name.
Patrick belongs with his foundation to help suffers of brain disease and should never be allowed to have an official capacity that is responsible for security and protection of people in the diplomatic community or any community. Whoever allowed him to assume this capacity without an overseer needs to be outed, seriously and questioned fully as to the decision process. Would we allow our strategic nuclear force personnel to serve knowing they had a clinical diagnosis of BPD? Would we allow any sufferer of brain disease to be in any capacity inside our State Department, our intelligence agencies or our military? Obviously not, unless there was extremely poor oversight and judgement.
This subject requires a serious investigation.
Not the same Kennedy.
Thank you, you’re absolutely correct. This is about Patrick F. Kennedy. I was referring to Patrick J. Kennedy. My faith in government at a basic level is somewhat restored.
