BENGHAZI,.WAS AMBASSADOR STEVENS FRAGGED? INVESTIGATE THE CIA.

ABOVE, CIRCLED IN RED AT TOP LEFT CORNER, THE "CONSULATE" IN BENGHAZI.
CIRCLED IN RED , LOWER RIGHT CORNER, THE "SECRET" CIA COMPLEX, 1.2 MILES FROM THE 'CONSULATE'.
KEEP THIS MAP IN MIND AS YOU READ.

There Was No Stand Down Order from Washington

WHO RELEASED THE FACTS, THE TESTIMONIES THAT FINALLY PROVED THIS?


A REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN...


"Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA), Chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services, decided to release the transcripts of interviews of nine military personnel conducted between January and April of this year regarding the attacks in Benghazi.

McKeon has been saying for a while now that he’s satisfied with the military’s response to the Benghazi attack, but it seems no one in his party is listening..."

SOME OF THE MOST RESPECTED NAMES IN THE U.S. MILITARY TESTIFIED FOR OVER 30 HOURS BEFORE A CONGRESSIONAL HEARING, AND, TO THE MAN, ALL SWORE ON OATH THAT THERE WAS NO, NOT ONE, STAND-DOWN ORDER ISSUED BY THE STATE DEPARTMENT OR THE WHITE HOUSE. 

THEY ALL ALSO TESTIFIED THAT THERE WAS NO QUICK HELP AVAILABLE AT THAT TIME FOR STEVENS AND THE OTHERS, THAT ANY RESCUE THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN LAUNCHED WOULD HAVE ARRIVED TOO LATE. 

450 PAGES OF DECLASSIFIED, BUT REDACTED, TESTIMONY BY THESE MILITARY HEADS (AND OTHERS WHO WERE THERE) WERE MADE AVAILABLE IN 2014, BUT WAS EITHER UNDER-REPORTED OR NOT REPORTED, OR WAS MANIPULATED BY THOSE LIKE FOX 'NEWS' TO CHANGE WORDS, TO DENY THAT OUR MILITARY WAS SIMPLY ILL-PREPARED AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE MAIN MISTAKES THAT COST US THE LIVES LOST.

WHEN RONALD REAGAN FAILED TO SAFEGUARD AMERICAN EMBASSIES AND WE LOST HUNDREDS BECAUSE OF THAT FAILURE, NO ONE WAS CALLED TO CONGRESS TO TESTIFY.
NO FINGERS WERE POINTED AT REAGAN FROM CONGRESSIONAL SEATS, AND THE MEDIA NEVER STATED IT WAS THE ADMINISTRATION'S FAULT THAT WE LOST SO MANY LIVES IN SO MANY BACK-TO-BACK TRAGIC INCIDENTS.

WHEN BUSH HAD 13 "BENGHAZIS", NO CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS, NO ACCUSATIONS, NO QUESTIONS.

WHAT'S THE BIG DIFFERENCE?


AT TRIPLE RED ASTERISKS FAR BELOW *** , FIND LINKS TO TRANSCRIPTS  OF THAT TESTIMONY GIVEN BY MILITARY MEN LIKE

AND DO UNDERSTAND....BY CONTINUING TO INSIST THAT CLINTON OR OBAMA DID ISSUE A STAND-DOWN, YOU ARE CALLING ALL THESE MILITARY MEN, AS WELL AS SOME WHO WERE THERE, ONSITE,  LIARS.

I'M WILLING TO BET THE FARM NONE WHO INSIST THESE MEN ARE LYING WOULD SAY THAT TO THEIR FACES.

THE FEDERAL N EWS SERVICE HAS A VERY, VERY LONG LIST OF LINKS INTO 30+ CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS ON BENGHAZI.
READ ALL OF THEM AT http://www.fednews.com/transcriptsmore.php?op=co

IT'S WAY PAST TIME WE LOOKED ELSEWHERE FOR WHAT REALLY HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI, AND I SUGGEST WE LOOK IN THE DIRECTION OF THE CIA. 

STEVENS HAD ONLY BEEN "AMBASSADOR TO BENGHAZI" SINCE MARCH, JUST SIX SHORT MONTHS.
HE WAS PASSIONATE ABOUT A FREE LIBYA, AN INDEPENDENT LIBYA.

HE LIKELY HAD LITTLE KNOWLEDGE OF THAT CIA "ANNEX" PRIOR TO THIS, UNLESS HE HIMSELF WAS ALSO CIA, AND EVEN THEN, MAYBE HE DIDN'T KNOW. 

MAYBE WHEN HE FOUND OUT, SOME DIDN'T LIKE BEING FOUND OUT.

THEN AGAIN, MAYBE HE WAS ROPED INTO AIDING THE CIA IN GUN-RUNNING TO THE ANTI-ASSAD SYRIAN "REBELS" ON BEHALF OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT, WHICH WANTS ASSAD GONE?

HILLARY CLINTON BASICALLY HANDPICKED STEVENS, MADE IT CLEAR TO HIM THAT AMERICA NEEDED/WANTED A PERMANENT 'EMBASSY' IN BENGHAZI?

WHY IN BENGHAZI?
JUNE 21, 2012
NEW YORK TIMES

C.I.A. Said to Aid in Steering Arms to Syrian Opposition

"The connection between Benghazi and Syrian rebels is stronger than has been officially acknowledged.

Spokesmen for the White House, State Department and C.I.A. would not comment on any intelligence operations supporting the Syrian rebels, some details of which were reported last week by The Wall Street Journal."

 
DID THE CIA 'FRAG' STEVENS, INDEED THE ENTIRE COMPLEX, TO COVER UP EVEN MORE THAN WE KNOW ABOUT NOW? 

Nov. 3, 2012
"The U.S. effort in Benghazi was at its heart a CIA operation," officials briefed on intelligence told the Wall Street Journal, and there's evidence that U.S. agents—particularly murdered U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens—were at least aware of heavy weapons moving from Libya to Syrian rebels.

A Libyan ship—which reportedly weighed 400 tons and included SA-7s—docked in southern Turkey on Sept. 6 and its cargo ended up in the hands of Syrian rebels


The man who organized that shipment, Tripoli Military Council head Abdelhakim Belhadj, worked directly with Stevens during the Libyan revolution.

Since Stevens and his staff served (KNOWINGLY OR UNKNOWINGLY) as "diplomatic cover" for the CIA—only seven of more than 30 Americans evacuated from Benghazi worked for the State DepartmentIn regards to Benghazi, Petraeus had "stayed away in an effort to conceal the agency's role in collecting intelligence and providing security," the WSJ reported, noting that during the attack "some officials at State and the Pentagon were largely in the dark about the CIA's role."


US commandos claim CIA station chief delayed Benghazi rescue

"U.S. commandos who tried to save Ambassador Christopher Stevens and other Americans during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, write in a new book that the CIA station chief held up the rescue attempt, The New York Times reports.

Five commandos — who were former Special Operations forces and hired by the CIA as private contractors — say the station chief ordered them to wait 20 minutes before heading to the U.S. diplomatic mission. 


Three of the commandos are named — Mark Geist, John Tiegen and Kris Paronto — and the two others used pseudonyms."

BUT THERE'S MORE!
FROM THE U.K. CAME AN ARTICLE NOT BOLDLY PRINTED IN ALL OUR AMERICAN MEDIA, NOT REPORTED ON OUR TV NEWS SOURCES, JUST NOT SPOTLIGHTED HERE AT ALL.

THERE IS A MUDDLED, VERY QUESTIONABLE REPORT OF WHAT HAPPENED IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE 'EMBASSY' CAME UNDER ATTACK BY A SINGLE CIA AGENT ASSIGNED TO GUARD STEVENS. 


IT READS LIKE A FAIRY TALE OF A "KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR" WHO FAILED TO SAVE "THE KING".

BUT, IT RAISES SO MANY QUESTIONS, MAKES SO MANY ERRORS, THAT WE MUST EXAMINE IT HERE.


Why did the CIA let a crazed al-Qaeda mob kill America's ambassador?


"Fumbling in the dark, the American ambassador hurriedly pulled on bullet-proof body armour over his blue trousers and T-shirt. A shrill warning siren was sounding and the crash of gunshots could be heard, getting closer by the second.

‘Follow me, sir,’ urged a diplomatic bodyguard, gripping his M4 assault rifle, shouldering an additional pump-action shotgun and looking anxiously around him as they set out along blacked-out corridors. ‘We are under attack.’
Weeks earlier, agents on the ground in Libya had sent an emergency message detailing their fears that the post was under-manned, under-gunned and under-resourced, and was not capable of withstanding a major terrorist attack.
There were, for example, no sprinklers, smoke hoods and anti-fire foam.

But nothing had been done, and it was now too late.

At least, though, there was a specially built safe haven at the heart of the main residence building, and it was into this room that the bodyguard bundled Stevens and an aide, 34-year-old Sean Smith, a communications wizard, and locked all three of them in behind its steel mesh gate...

[THIS MEANS STEVENS AND SMITH WERE PRISONERS INSIDE THE CONSULATE, NOT BEING REMOVED TO THE SAFER 'ANNEX'.
IF THERE WAS TIME TO ACCOMPLISH ALL THIS, SURELY THERE WAS TIME TO RUN FOR THE ANNEX WHERE MUCH MORE PROTECTION WAS AVAILABLE?]


"Package and one guest secure, hunkered down,’ "Agent A' reported on his hand-held radio to colleagues manning a command center in a neighboring barracks building.

All the three could do was wait until rescue arrived. They could only hope that help would reach them before the murderous bunch now ransacking the residence did.

...Ambassador Stevens sat on the floor in the safe room making calls on his BlackBerry to local leaders pleading in vain for their help.

...by now the building was on fire, deliberately set alight by the dozens of armed intruders, some of whom had now reached the safe room and were peering menacingly through the grille.
Inside, the three Americans lay low, quiet and out of sight. 

The [SOLITARY] bodyguard — unnamed in the book for security reasons and identified only as Agent A — panned his gun sight at one screaming balaclavaed head after another as they appeared at the grille but held his fire rather than reveal their presence in what was now becoming a rapidly heating oven rather than a haven.
A stifling heat built up within the safe room, as clouds of black, acrid smoke crept in. 

On his knees, the bodyguard crawled through the choking darkness to what was now the only possible exit — a small iron-grilled window in the adjoining bathroom."


[WHY DIDN'T HE TAKE STEVENS WITH HIM? 

WHY DIDN'T HE STEER HIM TO THIS EXIT, AHEAD OF HIMSELF?

 WHY LEAVE THE TWO BEHIND HIM WHEN THERE WAS NOTHING TO KEEP THEM FROM BEING SHOT BY THE MOB THAT WAS LOOKING THROUGH THE GRILL'?]   

 
"With great difficulty, he heaved it open and pulled himself out onto the roof of the building, signalling to Stevens and Smith to follow, believing they were right behind him."

...[He] stretched his arm back through the window to haul the other two out.

No hand came to meet his. There was no sign of either of them.  They were lost in the choking smoke."

ACCORDING TO THIS "HERO", IN HIS VERSION OF WHAT HAPPENED, WITH NO ONE LEFT ALIVE TO DISPUTE HIS ACCOUNT...
"Agent A — his hands already scorched, his lungs hardly able to draw breath — plunged back into the smoke and flames to find them, not just once but five, six times. Each time he re-emerged to gasp a few lungfuls of air, bullets cracked around him from gunmen on the ground.

Frantic at having failed in a diplomatic guard’s number one priority, he yelled into his radio. 
‘I don’t have the ambassador,’ he shouted at the embassy compound’s control center.  

The agents there were under siege too, barricaded in and surrounded by hostile fire. Now they gathered their strength, cleared the area outside the control center with a grenade and then charged out...  

Three of them made it across open ground to the residence and onto the roof where a distressed Agent A was still trying to rescue the Ambassador and his aide.

[STOP RIGHT THERE!
ALL IT TOOK FOR THEM TO MANAGE, AFTER ALL THIS TIME HAD PASSED, TO REACH STEVENS' RESIDENCE (CONSULATE) WAS ONE LOUSY GRENADE?
THEN WHY HADN'T THEY TOSSED THAT GRENADE SOONER?
WHY WAIT WHEN THE AMERICAN AMBASSADOR'S LIFE WAS AT RISK?
LOOKS LIKE THEY MANAGED TO GET THERE WHEN THEY WANTED TO GET THERE, DOESN'T IT?]


AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME, THE FORCES FROM THE ANNEX ARRIVED, WE'RE TOLD.

 
"Equipped with full battle kit, they took back control of the Mission Compound, forcing the marauders out. But for how long?
 
Meanwhile, back inside the safe room, the lifeless body of Sean Smith had at last been found and was carried out.

But there was still no sign of Ambassador Stevens.

There was no choice left for the Americans. 
They had to retreat or die."

[WE SEE THAT, IN "AGENT A's" OWN WORDS, THE AMBASSADOR WAS LOCKED INTO THAT ROOM WITH SMITH, AND ARE TOLD THERE WAS BUT ONE EXIT, SO HOW COULD HE BE MISSING, AND HOW COULD THEY NOT HAVE FOUND HIM WHEN HE WAS LOCKED INTO THAT ONE SMALL AREA?] 

THE FAIRY TALE CONTINUES....

"
Leaving without having found Ambassador Stevens was a terrible decision for the diplomatic service agents. 


Even supposing the man it was their job to protect was dead, there was the gut-wrenching prospect of his body falling into terrorist hands and being dragged through the streets, U.S. pride trampled in the dust.  


But that thought had to be put aside. 

Escape was the only option. 


Cramming into armored Land Cruisers, they pushed their way out of the compound."

[WHAT A DAMNED AMAZING FEAT TO ESCAPE THROUGH SUCH OVERWHELMING ODDS, PAST SO MANY ARMED ATTACKERS, AND MAKE IT BACK SO QUICKLY TO THEIR ANNEX!]  


"The defense line was paper thin — just a handful of American snipers in vantage points on the roof as overhead, a U.S. Predator drone cruising backwards and forwards sent back to the defenders vivid images of the sheer scale of the attack being mounted against them.  

Not even the seven-man hit squad of trained commandos that had finally made it by air from the U.S. embassy in Tripoli to back up the Americans in Benghazi could swing the situation in their favor.   

[THESE COMMANDOS, AS YOU WILL SOON SEE, INCLUDED 2 WHO WERE KILLED, BUT FIVE WHO SURVIVED SWORE THAT THE CIA STATION CHIEF DETAINED THEM, MADE THEM WAIT A FULL 20 MINUTES BEFORE HE ALLOWED THEM TO MOVE TO RESCUE STEVENS. 

BY THEN, THEY IMAGINED STEVENS WAS WITH THE MEN AT THE ANNEX AND WENT THERE.]  

"Short of all 34 of them dying where they stood in a last-ditch Alamo defense, they would have to get out.

Frantically, nervous CIA agents shredded classified files and took sledgehammers to computers and hard drives brimming with secrets, anxious that nothing should fall into enemy hands."

[THEY TOOK TIME TO DO THIS, BUT NOT TO LOCATE STEVENS?
AFTER HOURS, THEY SUDDENLY DECIDE TO SHRED DOCUMENTS WHEN THE MOB IS GROWING?
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE "
Escape was the only option" HURRY-UP THAT CAUSED THEM TO ABANDON THE SEARCH FOR STEVENS? 


WHY WASN'T STEVENS MORE IMPORTANT THAN DOCUMENTS?
WHAT WAS SO IMPORTANT IN THOSE DOCUMENTS THAT THEY WERE 'SECURED' BUT STEVENS WAS NOT?]


"As preparations were made to break out of the compound, another furious attack began, this time with an even deadlier weapon — mortars."

Perched up on a roof, two former Navy Seals, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods [3 OF THE COMMANDOS FROM TRIPOLI], were picking off the attackers with their Mk 46 automatics when a mortar shell hit their position.
Woods died instantly, his friend Doherty seconds later, killed by another mortar round. Shrapnel cut down other defenders. 


The battle was about to be lost, Americans slaughtered, their nation humbled. 

But the Libyan army saved the day.

As the sun rose, Special Forces soldiers from its Military Intelligence section came barrelling in with orders to get the Americans out of the country as quickly as possible. The terrorist mob was driven back.


As the Muslim morning call to prayer echoed around Benghazi, 32 weary survivors packed themselves and crate-loads of CIA equipment into a convoy of vehicles and drove under escort to the airport for a rapid exit from this place of destruction and death. They carried with them the bodies of Smith, Doherty and Woods. "


[SMITH HAD BEEN RIGHT BESIDE STEVENS, REMEMBER?
THEY CARRIED SMITH'S BODY TO THE ANNEX.
DOHERTY AND WOODS WERE UP ON A ROOF. 
SOMEONE HAD TO GO UP THERE TO RETRIEVE THOSE 2 BODIES, AMIDST 'HEAVY SHELLING AND GUNFIRE'.

ACTUALLY, AS WAS REPORTED LATER, THE TWO BODIES OF THE COMMANDOS WERE THROWN FROM THE ROOF TO THE GROUND BELOW, SO WE MUST ACCEPT THE WORD OF THOSE WHO DID THAT THAT THOSE TWO WERE ALREADY DEAD.

 
THEY LUGGED OUT CIA EQUIPMENT, BUT NO AMBASSADOR?]   
WHILE THE CIA OPERATIVES CLAIM THEY COULD NOT FIND SMITH'S BODY, THE LIBYANS FOUND IT IMMEDIATELY, RIGHT THERE IN THAT "SAFE ROOM", IN THAT SMALL AREA WHERE HE AND SMITH HAD BEEN LEFT BY "AGENT A"!

"
At the now deserted Mission Complex, looters wandered into the still burning remains of the ambassador’s home. Abandoned weapons, furniture, iPods, mobile phones, the ambassador’s clothes, his luggage, cigars, bottles of water — everything was carried off in triumph.
 
Eventually they forced their way into the safe room — and there was Stevens’s blackened body. It was carried out, laid on the ground, propped up to be photographed and the pictures flashed around the world to be gawped at."

WRONG!
STEVENS WAS STILL ALIVE AT THAT TIME AND WAS ALIVE WHEN HE ARRIVED AT A LOCAL HOSPITAL, THE ATTENDING PHYSICIAN STATED HE WAS SUFFERING FROM "FATAL ASPHYXIATION" FROM THE SMOKE! 


WE HAVE VIDEO EVIDENCE HE WAS STILL ALIVE IN THAT SAFE ROOM, RIGHT WHERE "AGENT A" LEFT HIM TO MAKE HIS ESCAPE! 


THE SO-CALLED "LIBYAN RESCUERS" OF THE 34 AT THE ANNEX WENT TO THE 'CONSULATE', FOUND STEVENS THERE, TOOK HIM TO HOSPITAL

IT WAS LATER PROVEN THAT THE "BLACKENED BODY" AND THE PHOTOS OF STEVENS BEING SODOMIZED WERE FAKE.

"A year on [THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN IN SEPT. 2013], the Benghazi raid is the focus of bitter contention in the U.S., where accusations are made by senators and conspiracy theorists alike that the Obama administration covered up — and continues to obscure — failings that led to an ambassador and three other Americans dying in such horrendous circumstances.  

Why was the attack not anticipated by intelligence sources? 
Why were warnings ignored that the mission building was inadequate for its job?

The questions seem even more pointed in the light of allegations that the survivors have been silenced."


NOT ALL WERE SILENCED AND NOT THE TOP BRASS OVERSEEING BENGHAZI.

BUT CONGRESS AND THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA ARE FAILING TO PUBLISH THEIR ACCOUNTS, FAILING TO SET THE RECORD RIGHT, FAILING, AS ALWAYS, TO SHINE A LIGHT ON THE TRUTH, FAILING TO DEMAND ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS SUCH AS THE ONES WE ASK HERE. 

WHY HIDE THE REAL REASONS STEVENS AND THE OTHERS DIED?
WHY NOT GO AFTER THOSE WHOM WE KNOW DID GIVE A STAND-DOWN ORDER, DID HOLD UP THE RESCUE TEAM FROM TRIPOLI? 

WE MAY NEVER HAVE THE ANSWERS, BUT WE OUGHT TO!
I'D LIKE AN ANSWER TO THE QUESTION OF EXACTLY WHO WAS CHARGED WITH PROTECTING STEVENS, WITH SECURING HIS SAFETY AT ALL TIMES, AND AFTER WE LOOK UNDER EVERY ROCK FOR THE SNAKES WE KNOW EXIST IN "COVERT OPS", WE JUST MAY FIND THAT ANSWER.

HISTORY TEACHES US HOW MANY TIMES SOME HAVE BEEN RULED "EXPENDABLE" AND HAVE PERISHED BECAUSE SOMETHING NEEDED TO BE COVERED UP, HIDDEN, "PROTECTED".

WE'VE SEEN 'FALSE FLAGS' CARRIED OUT TO PIN THE WRAP ON OTHERS EVER SINCE THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR, FALSE FLAGS TO GARNER THE SUPPORT OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AGAINST SELECTED ENEMIES. 

WE'VE SEEN "ERASURES" ACROSS THE DECADES WHEN OUR "SECRET SERVICES" FELT THAT SOMEONE MIGHT BLOW THEIR COVER, OR BLOW THE WHISTLE, OR MAYBE JUST INTERFERE WITH WHAT WAS PLANNED, "IN SECRET". 

WE SAW AMERICAN SERVICEMEN ABANDONED TO THEIR FATE AS POWs IN LAOS, CAMBODIA, OTHER PLACES WHERE AMERICA WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE TROOPS, "LEGALLY".

SEVERAL U.S. AGENCIES HAVE BEEN BUSTED GUN-RUNNING, DRUG-DEALING, CREATING 'COUPS', INSTIGATING CIVIL UNREST IN OTHER NATIONS, EVEN SPYING ON OUR ALLIES.

DENIAL OF SUCH THINGS IS LUDICROUS, AND A LIE IN ITSELF.  

WHEN SENATORS, EVEN MILITARY HEADS, WERE "SHOCKED" TO LEARN THE CIA HAD SUCH A SETUP AS IT HAD IN BENGHAZI, RED FLAGS SHOULD HAVE GONE UP ALL ACROSS AMERICA.

INSTEAD, WE WERE DIVERTED FROM ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CIA BY THE WALL STREET-CONTROLLED MAJOR MEDIA AND A SET OF CONGRESSMEN WHO HAD TO BE BOUGHT BY SAME FOR THEM TO CONTINUE THESE PAST YEARS TO TRY TO BLAME ANYONE BUT THE "PRIME SUSPECTS"...THE CIA, WHO WAS GUN-RUNNING INTO SYRIA FROM BENGHAZI, WHO DID NOT PROVIDE NOR REQUEST PROPER SECURITY FOR THAT INSTALLATION...BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T WANT INTERFERENCE WITH THEIR OPERATIONS, THEIR "PRISONER INTERROGATIONS" THAT THE LOCALS FOUND OUT ABOUT? 

THE TESTIMONIES QUOTED BY SOME MAJOR MEDIA AND LINKED BELOW, AVAILABLE FOR ANYONE TO READ ONLINE, SHOULD HAVE TURNED THE ATTENTION OF "CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS" IN A WHOLE NEW DIRECTION. 


WHY DIDN'T THEY?
WHY WON'T THE DAMNABLE CONGRESS NOW, TODAY, BEGIN A NEW HEARING INTO THE CIA PRESENCE AT BENGHAZI, AND STOP PLAYING POLITICS.

IT WAS POLITICS THAT WASTED TIME, MONEY, AND MAYBE LOST US SOME STAR WITNESSES TO WHAT REALLY WENT ON THOSE TWO DAYS AT BENGHAZI. 

"Republicans are wasting more taxpayer funds PER DAY" than we spend on either the Veterans Affairs Committee or the Intelligence Committee."

"“These transcripts definitively show that Republican attacks against our nation’s military service members and former Secretary of State Clinton are completely unfounded and utterly offensive. They have been refuted by military officials who repeatedly told our two Committees that there was no ‘stand down’ order and that significant military assets WERE deployed on the night of the attacks."


[NOTE: THEY HAD NO CHANCE OF ARRIVING IN TIME, AS YOU WILL SEE. THEY WERE HELD UP FOR A CONSIDERABLE TIME AT THE BENGHAZI AIRPORT BY LIBYAN "INTELLIGENCE" FORCES, MADE TO WAIT 20 MINUTES TO GO TO THE AID OF STEVENS BY THE CIA STATION CHIEF, ACCORDING TO TESTIMONY.] 


"Now that Chairman McKeon has made these transcripts public, I urge Republicans who made these baseless accusations to apologize to both Secretary Clinton and our brave men and women in uniform.”

TO HELL WITH PINNING THE WRAP ON HILLARY OR EVEN APOLOGIZING TO HER...IT'S THE MEN IN UNIFORM WHO DESERVE THE APOLOGY!

FROM THE BEGINNING, THEY HAVE TRIED, TIME AND TIME AGAIN, TO MAKE THEMSELVES UNDERSTOOD...THEY GOT NO STAND-DOWN ORDER FROM STATE DEPARTMENT OR THE OVAL OFFICE.
HAM ADMITTED THE ORDER TO "STAY IN PLACE" IN TRIPOLI CAME FROM HIM.

HOWEVER, SINCE CLINTON WAS NOT GUILTY OF CALLING THE STAND-DOWN, LET'S FIND THE REAL CRIMINALS OF THE BENGHAZI AFFAIR!
WE WON'T FIND THEM IN THE MILITARY, BUT MAY FIND THEM IN THE CIA?


LET'S JUST UNCOVER THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH! 

IF THESE MILITARY MEN DID NOT LIE, AND WHO CAN IMAGINE THAT THEY WOULD, GIVEN THEIR FEELINGS ABOUT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IN GENERAL, THEN THE ONES RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT LOSS OF LIFE ARE STILL FREE, PERHAPS EVEN GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER.

AND THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE! 
JUST AS IT WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE WHEN WE KNEW THE REAGAN ADMINISTRATION WAS AT FAULT FOR THE EMBASSIES THAT WERE ATTACKED AND THOSE LIVES LOST.
THAT, TOO, SHOULD FINALLY BE REMEDIED, CORRECTED, EXPOSED, ADMITTED TO.

POLITICS IS DESTROYING THIS NATION!
TRUTH WILL SAVE IT! 



TRANSCRIPT: General Carter Ham Testifies Before Senate

[THAT LINK IS A PDF WHICH DOWNLOADS INSTANTLY, AS ARE ALL TRANSCRIPTS WITH LINKS BELOW.]

"GENERAL CARTER HAM: [L]eading up to the events of 11 September, watching the intelligence very carefully as all of us did and post attack having the opportunity to review the intelligence, I still don't find -- I have not found the intelligence that would indicate that an attack in Benghazi was imminent and that subsequent security should have been deployed."   


WHO WAS IN CHARGE OF PROVIDING "INTELLIGENCE"?
WASN'T IT THE CIA?


WHY WOULD THEY RAT THEMSELVES OUT?


WHY WOULD THEY WANT EXTRA SECURITY WHEN THAT MIGHT MEAN THEIR WEAPONS-RUNNING OPERATION TO THE SYRIANS WOULD BE EXPOSED?


THE SECRET CIA MISSION IN BENGHAZI

In May, 2013 CNN's Jake Tapper argued that the CIA's presence in Benghazi, where four Americans were killed in an attack on September 11, 2012, should be scrutinized.

Congressman Frank Wolf (R-Va.) agreed, saying: "There are questions that must be asked of the CIA and this must be done in a public way."

On Thursday Drew Griffin and  of CNN reported that the CIA "is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret."


A CAREFUL READING OF THE TIMELINE GIVEN IN THAT ARTICLE SHOULD SCREAM TO ANYONE, "LOOK! THIS DOES NOT MAKE SENSE!"

"At about 9:40 p.m. local time on Sept. 11, a mob of Libyans attacked a building housing U.S. State Department personnel. 

 At 10:20 p.m
. Americans arrived from a CIA annex located 1.2 miles away, to help the besieged Americans. 


At 11:15 p.m. they fled with survivors back to the secret outpost."


IT TOOK ALMOST AN HOUR TO TRAVEL JUST OVER ONE MILE? 

[Remember, all the "action" was at the 'consulate', they said, at that time. Supposedly, the Libyans didn't know THEN that the 'CIA annex' existed.]

IT TOOK AN HOUR TO DECIDE TO GET THE HELL OUT OF THE 'CONSULATE' AND START BACK TO THE "SECRET OUTPOST" AND NO ONE COULD LOCATE OR SEE THAT STEVENS WAS STILL ALIVE?

 

THEY LEFT WITHOUT STEVENS, WHOM THEY SAID HAD 'PROBABLY' BEEN KILLED, BUT WHOM VIDEO FOOTAGE SHOWED TO BE STILL BARELY ALIVE HOURS LATER?  

THEY SOMEHOW MANAGED NOT ONLY TO GET IN, BUT ALSO GET OUT OF THE 'CONSULATE' "WITH SURVIVORS" AND SMITH'S DEAD BODY, SO WHY NOT SOONER IN BOTH DIRECTIONS, AND WHY LEAVE STEVENS BEHIND, DEAD OR ALIVE? 

THEY DIDN'T KNOW, OR DIDN'T CARE, WHAT TYPICALLY WAS DONE TO AMERICAN BODIES OVER THERE BY THOSE WHO HATE AMERICANS?


WHY WAS ONLY STEVENS, OF ALL WHO WERE THERE, NOT IN THE SAFER "SECRET OUTPOST"?


WHY WOULDN'T STEVENS HIMSELF, AND THOSE CHARGED WITH PROTECTING HIM, HAVE MADE CERTAIN THERE WAS A DASH FOR THE SAFER, SECRET ANNEX AT FIRST SIGN OF TROUBLE? 
 
SO, AFTER AN HOUR, HIS "RESCUERS" FROM THE ANNEX BAILED OUT OF THE CONSULATE, MOSTLY CIA-HIRED PEOPLE.


"Armed Libyans followed them and attacked the annex with rockets and small arms from around midnight to 1:00 a.m., when there was a lull in the fighting."

ATTACKED WITH ROCKETS?
A ONE-HOUR ROCKET ATTACK SHOULD HAVE OBLITERATED THE PLACE.


HELP ARRIVES FROM TRIPOLI   

"Glen Doherty, a former Navy SEAL and CIA security contractor, was with a team of Joint Special Operations Command military operators and CIA agents in Tripoli at the time of the attack. When they received word of the assault on the mission, Doherty and six others bribed the pilots of small jet with $30,000 cash for a ride to Benghazi. 

At about 5:15 a.m., right after Doherty's group arrived, the attackers began shooting mortars at the annex, leading to the death of Doherty and fellow former Navy SEAL and CIA contractor Tyrone Woods. 

At 6 a.m. Libyan forces from the military intelligence service arrived and subsequently took more than 30 Americans — only seven of whom were from the State Department — to the Benghazi airport.

THE INITIAL ATTACK BEGAN AT 9:40 pm, AND THE LIBYANS DIDN'T RESPOND UNTIL 6:00am?
WHY DID IT TAKE THEM OVER 8 HOURS TO RESPOND?

FORCES ARRIVING FROM TRIPOLI ALREADY TESTIFIED THAT IT WAS LIBYAN FORCES THAT HELD THEM UP AT THE AIRPORT...FOR HOURS!

DOES IT SEEM TO ANYONE ELSE THAT THE LIBYANS WERE GETTING ORDERS FROM "SOMEONE" TO DELAY ANY INTERVENTION, ANY HELP FOR STEVENS?


WHAT ABOUT THE INITIAL REPORT FROM THAT LIBYAN HOSPITAL THAT STEVENS WAS BROUGHT THERE ALIVE?

"Last week, the doctor who treated Stevens told The Associated Press that the ambassador was nearly lifeless when he was brought by Libyans, with no other Americans around, to the Benghazi hospital where he worked. He said Stevens had severe asphyxia from the smoke and that he tried to resuscitate him with no success."


HE WAS ASPHYXIATED, NOT SHOT?  


Though i cannot yet locate the "official cause of death" for Stevens, there was another report that he arrived in cardiac arrest.

AND AN UNNAMED "AL QAEDA SOURCE" HAS SAID HE WAS GIVEN A LETHAL INJECTION.
June 4, 2013 "A State Department Accountability Review Board report and an interim House Republican report on the attacks gave no cause of death for Stevens, whose body was recovered by Libyans in the early hours of Sept. 12.

To date, no official cause of death for Stevens has been made public, although it was reported that a Libyan doctor who examined Stevens said he died from apparent smoke inhalation and related asphyxiation. 

 
According to a March 14 posting on an al Qaeda-linked website, Dhu-al-Bajadin stated that Stevens was given a lethal injection that was overlooked during the autopsy.


LEST WE FORGET...A FEW HEADLINES ABOUT STEVENS YET BEING ALIVE AFTER THE CIA PULLED OUT WITHOUT HIM...


Video Appears to Show Libyans Retrieving Stevens ... - The New York Times

Sep 16, 2012 - “Move, move, he is still alive!” ... Mr. Stevens was taken to a hospital, where a doctor tried to revive him, but said he was all but dead on arrival. 

Was U.S. ambassador in Benghazi actually kidnapped? - WND.com

Aug 26, 2014 - After stating a “Libyan contact” went to the Benghazi Medical Center to ... reported Stevens was at the hospital and was “alive and well”  

May 1, 2014 - Official said he received call reporting Stevens 'alive and well' ... Libya, was told Stevens was taken to a hospital controlled by Ansar Al-Shariah ... 


WHAT CAUSED THE ATTACK?


ACCORDING TO PETRAEUS' MISTRESS: 

"According to Paula Broadwell, the mistress of David Petraeus when he was CIA director, the CIA may have provided an impetus for the attack by holding prisoners: "Now I don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back."

CONGRESSMEN KNEW WHAT BENGHAZI WAS

"The top-secret presence and location of the CIA outpost was first acknowledged by Charlene Lamb, a top official in the State Department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security, during Congressional testimony in October.

Representatives Jason Chaffetz and Darrell Issa immediately called a point of order when Lamb exposed the location of the annex, and asked for the revelation to be stricken from the record.

“I totally object to the use of that photo,” Chaffetz. said. “I was told specifically while I was in Libya I could not and should not ever talk about what you’re showing here today.”
In November The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. mission in Benghazi "was at its heart a CIA operation."

In May, 2013 Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told CNN: “I’ve actually always suspected that, although I have no evidence, that maybe we were facilitating arms leaving Libya going through Turkey into Syria. ... Were they trying to obscure that there was an arms operation going on at the CIA annex? I’m not sure exactly what was going on, but I think questions ought to be asked and answered."


The State Department "consulate" merely served as diplomatic cover for the previously-hidden annex and Stevens was there to give the whole thing credibility so the U.S. could push for a PERMANENT consulate there... a PERMANENT place from which to arrange arms shipments through Turkey. 



Stevens' last meeting on Sept. 11 was with Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin, and a source told Fox News that Stevens was in Benghazi "to negotiate a weapons transfer in an effort to get SA-7 missiles out of the hands of Libya-based extremists."
Syrian rebels subsequently began shooting down Syrian helicopters and fighter jets with SA-7s akin to those in Qaddafi's looted stock.
WAS FOX's 'SOURCE' CIA?
DID FOX FALL FOR PHONY INFORMATION...YET AGAIN?


LET'S REMEMBER ALL THE WRONG INFO AND "INTELLIGENCE" THAT CAME OUT OF IRAQ PRIOR TO OUR GOING IN THERE, AND ALL THE LIES THAT WERE TOLD ABOUT 'IRAN-CONTRA', AND EVEN FURTHER BACK IN THE VIETNAM ERA, AND FURTHER BACK STILL IN KOREA.


WAS STEVENS PURPOSELY PLACED, ALONE, UNGUARDED, OR EVEN WITH CIA OPERATIVES, INSIDE THAT 'CONSULATE' AND THEN IT WAS TORCHED AND CERTAIN PEOPLE MADE SURE STEVENS HAD NO MEANS OF ESCAPE, MADE CERTAIN NO ONE RESCUED HIM, BUT FAILED TO MAKE SURE HE WAS DEAD BEFORE THEY LEFT HIM THERE AND WENT BACK TO THEIR ANNEX?  


WAS HE LETHALLY INJECTED?
IF "AL QAEDA" HAD INJECTED HIM, WHY THE HELL WOULD THEY JUST LEAVE HIM THERE WHEN TO HAVE HIS BODY FOR DISPLAY WOULD HAVE BEEN MOST DESIRABLE TO THEM? 

AN EARLY VERSION OF THE "RESCUE" ATTEMPTS FOR STEVENS STATED THAT THE TEAM FROM THE ANNEX DID FIND HIM!

HOWEVER, THAT VERSION, WRITTEN IN OCTOBER, 2012, STATES HE WAS FOUND DEAD BESIDE SMITH AND BOTH BODIES WERE TAKEN TO THE ANNEX

.
WE NOW KNOW BETTER....HE WAS TAKEN TO HOSPITAL ALIVE AFTER THE "RESCUE MISSION" WAS ABANDONED BY THE CIA FORCES... FOR THE 2ND TIME
TOO MANY QUESTIONS....NO ANSWERS, NO INVESTIGATION IN ANY DIRECTION THAT MIGHT FIND HIS KILLER(S).

SHOWS HOW RABIDLY STUPID THE "TEA PARTY" WAS IN THEIR 'REPORTING', BEFORE ALL THE TESTIMONY WAS RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC.
EVERYTHING THEY ALLEGED JUST DID NOT PAN OUT!

THE PHOTO THEY CLAIMED WAS OF STEVENS HAS BEEN PROVEN NOT TO BE STEVENS.
THERE WAS NEVER A RETRACTION, SO THEIR MYTHICAL ACCOUNT STANDS TO THIS DAY, BELIEVED BY A GULLIBLE PUBLIC WHO SO WANTS OBAMA/CLINTO TO BE RESPONSIBLE THEY WON'T EVEN DEMAND AN INVESTIGATION INTO WHO WAS REALLY RESPONSIBLE, EVEN AFTER 5 COMMANDOS FINGERED THE CIA STATION CHIEF! AND THE CIA-PAID LIBYANS AT THE AIRPORT.

BENGHAZI SCANDAL IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK.

06-17-2015

There’s a scandal going on here all right.
It’s just not the one the press thinks.

Sid Blumenthal spent nine hours—nine hours—being deposed yesterday. 

About half an hour was spent on the Benghazi attack. 
He wasn’t even asked by Republicans about the attacks until around 6 p.m., seven-and-a-half hours after he sat down in the chair. 

The Republicans didn’t even seem to know that Blumenthal didn’t write these intelligence assessments, that they were written by the former CIA operative, Tyler Drumheller, not Blumenthal, who was just passing them along. 

At one point, Darrell Issa—not a member of the committee—sauntered in, but not being a member of the committee was escorted out by Gowdy himself.

 “It seems obvious that my appearance before this committee was for one reason and one reason only,” Blumenthal told me Tuesday night. “And that was politics.”

AND POLITICS, TRYING TO ELIMINATE HILLARY CLINTON FROM THE UPCOMING ELECTION, IS WHY THE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS (AND A FEW DEMOCRATS) KEEP IGNORING THE CIA AS THE REAL GUILTY PARTY, THE REAL CAUSE OF THE LOSS OF LIVES IN BENGHAZI.

    In a new book about the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, a group of American commandos who were tasked with guarding the compound claim they were ordered to stand down during the attack, preventing them from rescuing Ambassador Christopher Stevens and others who were trapped inside. The book, titled 13 Hours, is scheduled to be released next week, but a copy was obtained by David Kirkpatrick of The New York Times.

    According to the book, five members of a private security team say an unidentified CIA station chief ordered them not to intervene (against their protests) as the consulate was under attack by militants. The commandos say they eventually disobeyed the order, but not soon enough to save Stephens and another American who were both killed.

    “13 Hours” is the first account of the Benghazi attack to surface from witnesses to the event.

    Later the operators speculated that if they had left immediately, without losing 15 to 20 minutes haggling inside the annex before their rescue mission was launched, they could have saved the lives of Stevens and Smith.

    The commandos, fully armed, waited in cargo vehicles for help from Libyan allies that never came, as hundreds of armed militants stormed the embassy and burned everything in sight.

    They then watched in horror as the bodies of two of their own, killed by mortar fire atop a parapet at the CIA annex, are unceremoniously thrown two stories to the ground by rescuers to be loaded into an escape convoy.

    They had little good to say about their CIA bosses: the agent assigned as team leader of their security unit or the top intelligence officer at the secret annex.

    The right, and Fox News in particular, have twisted the facts about the Benghazi tragedy to fit an often-changing political agenda, aimed at smearing the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton. The men on the ground in Benghazi that night have offered their story to set the record straight; now, it just remains to be seen whether media will finally report the full truth.

    Retired Lt. General William Boykin said in January that Stevens was in Benghazi as part of an effort to arm the Syrian opposition:

    More supposition was that he was now funneling guns to the rebel forces in Syria, using essentially the Turks to facilitate that. Was that occurring, (a), and if so, was it a legal covert action?

    Boykin said Stevens was “given a directive to support the Syrian rebels” and the State Department’s Special Mission Compound in Benghazi “would be the hub of that activity.”

    both parties greenlighted regime change in Syria years ago, and both parties have tried to cover up what was really going on in Benghazi.

    Last August, CNN touched on the weapons smuggling aspect of Benghazi.

    The Wall Street Journal, Telegraph and other sources confirm that the US consulate in Benghazi was mainly being used for a secret CIA operation.

    They say that the State Department presence in Benghazi “provided diplomatic cover” for the previously hidden CIA mission. WND alleges that it was not a real consulate. And former CIA officer Philip Giraldi confirms:

    Benghazi has been described as a U.S. consulate, but it was not. It was an information office that had no diplomatic status. There was a small staff of actual State Department information officers plus local translators. The much larger CIA base was located in a separate building a mile away.

  6. ONE FINAL THOUGHT, FOR NOW...IF, AS WE ARE TOLD, STEVENS WAS PASSIONATE ABOUT THE REBUILDING OF LIBYA AS AN INDEPENDENT NATION(INDEPENDENT FROM THE U.S. AND OTHERS), WOULD HE HAVE WILLINGLY HELPED SECURE WEAPONS FROM THE U.S.-BACKED LIBYANS WHO OVERTHREW AND MURDERED GADDAFI?

    Jeffrey D. Feltman, who at the time was the assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, was with Stevens at his last meeting with on August 20, was with a high-ranking rebel minister Stevens had gotten to know well.
    The minister, a former exile whom Qaddafi had sentenced to death in absentia, gradually explained that the battle for Tripoli would begin in the neighborhood of Souq al-Jumaa. Other areas would rise up with weapons that had been smuggled into the city, and only then, after the people of Tripoli had claimed the revolution as their own, would rebel forces advance from the east.

    The minister was very specific. Feltman wondered how much of what he'd said could be trusted.

    "When is this going to happen?" Stevens asked.
    The minister spoke next. "This will all begin tonight."

    Stevens and Feltman quickly sent an encrypted report of their meeting to Washington.

    TOO LATE!
