Could Benghazi have been a Bergdahl Gambit that Went South?
American Thinker ^ | June 9, 2014 | Jeannie DeAngelis

President Obama has been trying to close Gitmo for years, which means finding a way – any way – to free the terrorists from that prison. Regrettably for Obama, try as he might, he has been unable to obtain Congressional approval to release Gitmo detainees back onto the battlefield to recommence the murder, mayhem, and destruction.

Thus far, the United States Congress thinks it is in the best interest of the American people to keep highly dangerous Taliban fighters locked up for as long as possible. Barack “I won” Obama thinks otherwise.

I speculated on this last week. My comment was that when Ambassador Stevens was killed, the Omama Administration had to go to "Plan B."

Maybe the "Blind Sheik" wasn't the prize after all.

Benghazi was all about releasing the blind sheikh and getting Stevens back..Obama would have been hailed as a hero by the media and won in a landslide..I said if when if happened and I have no doubt that is how if went down..no one was supposed to die that night..it was supposed to be a kidnapping then a swap..but when the other three men arrived trying to help Stevens Obama and his cronies decided to let them all die

Someone fairly prominent in the blog world (I forget who) already posited this theory shortly after Benghazi. The theory was that Stevens was to be grabbed, and exchanged for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. It was a twofer, in that it was also widely rumored that the facility in Benghazi was also a distribution hub for weapons from State going not only to Libyan rebels, but also being pipelined to Syria, and the attack would cover that up.

Is there any brave governor anywhere who would be willing to jail these prisoners so we can close Gitmo? Alaska perhaps?

From the beginning, I felt (and posted) that Benghazi was a cute stunt that went bad. Obama had done a rotten job in the next to last debate and was looking weak, so Amb. Stevens was set up to be kidnapped by being left unguarded and then informing the terrorists exactly where he would be. The plan was for Bam to ‘look tough’ from the podium and demand his release, give the kidnappers all sorts of goodies under the table and look manly sliding into the election.
Unexpectedly though, two former seals stepped into the breach and kept the kidnappers at bay for 7 hours. Rescuers had to be told to stand down, some even relieved of duty to give the bad guys more time to do the deed. When the ammo ran out, the angry attackers killed everyone, forcing Bam and Hillary to concoct ‘Plan B’, the video BS.
With the fawning media in full knee-pad mode and an adoring liberal voting base, the kept the Benghazi fiasco tamped down long enough to win the election and beyond.

It could also mean they were running guns to jihadists to depose Assad as well,I don’t think they would want Americans to know that a few months before an election,read Kenneth Timmermans book coming out in a week or two about the Stinger Missles

It had to be more than just the blind turd in the turban they intended to trade for Stevens.

If it was just the blind turd fingers would be pointing to Egypt as being behind the attack.

In fact I believe the reason the blind turd wasn’t released with the Fab 5 terrorists is because in doing so it would point back to Benghazi and that’s what they are trying to avoid.

The video BS started before the attack.

Your timeline is wrong.

The video had to be planned as part of the attack to create the “spontaneous” lie.

Don’t think so.

Hillary’s State Dept. in Egypt started apologies for the video before anything happened in Benghazi.

I see what you mean! They linked an already existing,though minor, tirade of the video to the murders for lack of a better excuse.
In any event, we can agree that we have an infestation of scumbags in the highest levels of government.

The attack and the protest in Egypt were coordinated for the specific purpose of creating the “spontaneous” lie.

Benghazi wasn’t the first, nor was it the last time “spontaneous” has been used to describe a terrorist attack or a threat of an attack.

The first time “spontaneous” was used for a terrorist attack was the 1st WTC bombing in 1993.

The dems pushed to get Bush to send troops into Somalia then with the 1st WTC bombing claimed it was a “spontaneous” response to Bush sending troops into Somalia.

The 1st WTC bombing has been traced back to 1991 which was the same time as the R King video which led to “spontaneous” race riots because of the not guilt verdict of the LA police.

The 1st WTC bombing was timed to correspond with the 2nd trial of the LA police which the left had promised more “spontaneous” race riots.

Spontaneous protest and spontaneous attack, sound familiar?

The “spontaneous” lie with Benghazi was concocted in an attempt to make people believe the terrorist are simply picking up on civil unrest stories in the news and planning the terrorist attacks around them, when in reality the dems and their allies in the MSM are orchestrating the civil unrest stories as part of the preparations for the attack.

Right before Benghazi there was the airline plot that followed the same plan as Benghazi.

Civil unrest followed by terrorist attack. That’s the Weather Underground playbook BTW.

Obama sent people to Florida to orchestrate civil unrest over Trayvon Martin.

The protest were followed by the airline plot.

Problem is the AP released the information that the terrorist had given the govt agent the bomb and told him it was his call as to the “TIMING” of the attack.

Obama controlled both ends.

He orchestrated the protest then he also controlled when to announce the terrorist plot because it was a govt agent.

Obama tried to make it appear as if the terrorist had picked up on the protest in the news and “spontaneously” planned the attack.
