Benghazi: Way More Than Meets The Eye?

According to Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show (heard via Satellite and streamed online).  What is known, and what was reported in the New York Times, is that this administration ran guns to Al Qaeda in a Middle East version of fast and furious. We’ve also learned that Ambassador Stevens was the conduit between the establishment and Al Qaeda receiving weapons, which they used to overthrow the Libyan government.

The murder of Stevens and his team at Benghazi is a seminal moment in American history. We have further learned that al-Qaeda forces, fighting on the side of NATO in Libya, obtained 20,000 hand-held stinger missiles. This means that the Obama administration has allowed al-Qaeda to be armed to the teeth including the acquisition of 20,000 stinger missiles in which only one is needed to take down an American airliner. To cover their tracks, the Obama administration left Chris Stevens and his bodyguards defenseless as they were killed by the very terrorists who this administration armed. Can you imagine how the election of 2012 would’ve turned if the American public had this information. This is why Stevens had to be killed, but there’s more.

Benghazi: 400 Surface To Air Missiles Stolen During Attack

On August 12, Joe DiGenova, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, told Washington D.C.’s WMAL that one of the reasons people have remained tight-lipped about Benghazi is because 400 U.S. missiles were “diverted to Libya” and ended up being stolen and falling into “the hands of some very ugly people.”

DiGenova represents Benghazi whistleblower Mark Thompson, while his wife Victoria Toensing represents deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya Gregory Hicks.  He (DiGenova) told WMAL that he “does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles.”

He claimed his information “comes from a former intelligence official who stayed in constant contact with people in the special ops and intelligence community.” He said the biggest concern right now is finding those missiles before they can be put to use. “They are worried, specifically according to these sources, about an attempt to shoot down an airliner,” he claimed.  Asked if the missiles are now ‘in the hands of al-Qaeda operatives,’ DiGenova replied, ‘That is what these people are telling us.’

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said,  “I’m concerned about surface to air missiles obviously being in the hands of Islamic radicals.   I’m also concerned was Hillary Clinton telling the truth or was she saying, “Well maybe it’s classified, maybe I won’t tell the truth.”  Paul added,

“I don’t think our public officials should come before committee and not tell the truth. The New York Times reported that she was the largest and most vocal advocate of arming the Syrian rebels. I find it hard to believe. The New York Times has also said the CIA has been involved with procuring arms to the Islamic rebels in Syria for over a year. What was the CIA annex doing there?…

I have asked specifically to have her brought back and I hope Chairman Issa will bring her back. She needs to testify under oath, did she know about this and did it have anything to do with the misdirection campaign and did she have anything to do with not allowing the Marines to go aid their wounded brothers there in Benghazi… This should preclude her from holding higher office.

The Other Benghazi Scandal – Journalists Afraid To Cover, Worried Over WH Access

The Other Benghazi Scandal – Journalists Afraid To Cover, Worried Over WH Access.  Only the members of the press who throw the softball questions get access.  Fox News is never selected by Barack Obama for anything special, because he doesn’t want to have to be honest in front of America about his leftist agenda.

(H/T:  Mediaite and Weasel Zippers)


Shayn Roby’s Take:  The fact that John Boehner refuses to authorize a Benghazi Select Committee raises a red flag that perhaps there is a Congressional cover-up of the Benghazi SNAFU.  Either there is a Congressional cover-up, or there is a high probability that guns were illegally sold to Syrian rebels from Libya via Turkey.  Cover-up is always in play when CIA operatives are involved.  The general public may never know what really went down at Benghazi, but countless lies have taken place since that fateful September 11th to the point that it is apparent that something happened that the Obama administration definitely did not intend to be known to non-clandestine personnel.

Mystery: The Death of Journalist Michael Hastings

Mystery: The Death of Journalist Michael Hastings.  Politics, the Chicago way?

Mystery: The Death of Journalist Michael Hastings

On the morning of June 18, 2013, journalist Michael Hastings died in a fiery car crash.  According to and James Corbett of The Corbett Report,  Hastings received the George Polk Award for “The Runaway General” (2010), a Rolling Stone profile of General Stanley McChrystal, commander of NATO‘s International Security Assistance Force in the Afghanistan war.  Part of the Rolling Stone article reported, “ Last fall, during the question-and-answer session following a speech he gave in London, McChrystal dismissed the counterterrorism strategy being advocated by Vice President Joe Biden as “shortsighted,” saying it would lead to a state of “Chaos-istan.” The remarks earned him a smackdown from the president himself, who summoned the general to a terse private meeting aboard Air Force One. The message to McChrystal seemed clear: Shut the f**k up, and keep a lower profile.  This article is believed by many to have ultimately led to General McChrystal submitting his resignation, because it revealed widespread contempt for civilian officials in the US government by the general and his staff.  President Obama publicly spoke in a press conference in which he relieved General McChrystal of his command, stating of the general, “The conduct represented in the latest article does not meet the standard that should be set by a commanding general.”

As the Chicago Political Machine rolls along, another political journalistic critic is dead.

Michael Hastings had started to get under the skin of the powers that be in Washington, D.C. crowd, and then his car mysteriously blew up.

As of late, Hastings had become a vocal critic of the surveillance state.   During the investigation of reporters by the US Department of Justice in 2013, he referred to the restrictions on the freedom of the press by the Obama administration as a “war” on journalism. His last story, “Why Democrats Love To Spy On Americans”, was published by BuzzFeed on June 7.  According to James Corbett, at the young age of 33, Hastings” really was making some big-time enemies in Washington, DC.”    Details are emerging that he was on the verge of breaking an important and possibly related new story about the CIA.  This may explain why Hastings believed he was being investigated by the FBI. Hastings died in a fiery high-speed automobile crash on June 18, 2013 in Los Angeles, California, just 11 days after he had submitted the story “Why Democrats Spy on Americans”.

Hastings is the second reporter to suddenly die when he was about to release a big story during the tenure of the Obama Administration.  Andrew Breitbart was on the verge of releasing a blockbuster story about Barack Obama when he mysteriously fell over dead while jaywalking across the street from outside a Brentwood, CA restaurant where  he had just had a glass of wine.  The previous night before Breitbart’s death, WND senior staff reporter Jerome Corsi arranged for Breitbart to interview Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who the very next day held a news conference to announce there was probable cause to believe President Obama’s birth certificate released on April 27, 2011, was a forgery, as well as Obama’s Selective Service Card.  Mysteriously enough, on the same day that Breitbart’s autopsy was released, Michael Cormier, a respected forensic attendant for the Los Angeles County Coroner, died under suspicious circumstances at his North Hollywood home.  Although Det. Rich Wheeler, a homicide supervisor with the Los Angeles Police Department, told WND that Cormier had no connection whatsoever  (take it for what it’s worth) to the investigation into Breitbart’s death, one has to at least question the coincidences that people consistently turn up dead when Obama’s political career appears to be in peril.

Know Your Source: Who is Glenn Greenwald, Interviewer of NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden

In a day and age where it is very hard to trust the motives of anyone in either political party, one is often left wondering what bit of information about a particular news story is hidden just under the surface, unseen to the casual observing eye and unimagined by the not-so-inquisitive intellect.  NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden has come forward to criticize perceived undue scrutiny of the agency of individual phone conversations, emails, texts, social media posts, and various other means of electronic communication.

First of all, who is Edward Snowden?  There have been charges from the NPR blogosphere that Snowden was a spy for China.  The fact that Snowden fled to Hong Kong certainly does little to dissuade those who believe that this may be the case.  Could it really be that this mediocre student with a GED, was working as a CIA operative in Geneva, and was a double agent for China?  Little more than rumor suggests that at the moment, but the exodus to Hong Kong does at least raise at a low flying red flag.

In the second place, who is Glenn Greenwald.  Is his motivation to be trusted?  Greenwald currently writes a column for The Guardian.An article about Snowden appears in The Guardian which printed a caption below his picture that reads in complementary fashion,

‘People like him who do the right thing should be recognised and celebrated instead of being tarred and punished.’

Wikipedia reports that Greenwald has appeared as a ’round table’ guest on ABC’s Sunday morning news show “This Week”, HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher”, Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report”, NPR’s “All Things Considered”, as well as numerous times on C-SPAN‘s Washington Journal; Pacifica Radio‘s syndicated series Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman;[35] on Public Radio International‘s To the Point; MSNBC‘s Rachel Maddow Show, “Morning Joe“, The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, Up with Chris Hayes, and Dylan Ratigan‘s “Morning Meeting”; Fox News’ Special Report with Brit Hume;.[36] Greenwald has been a regular guest on the Hugh Hewitt Show (and was a friend and favorite guest of Hewitt’s frequent guest host, Dean Barnett) and on PBS‘s Bill Moyers Journal.[37][38][39] 

Where do his politics orginate from?  He is admittedly gay and resides in Rio De Janeiro with boyfriend David Michael Miranda, according to The Huffington Post.

He is a dedicated leftist.   According to OUT Magazine, in a shouting match with Lawrence O’Donnell on his (O’Donnell’s) MSNBC show,  Greenwald made a strong case for what had caused the Democrats to bungle the midterm (2010) elections. O’Donnell seemed to blame progressives; Greenwald made a strong case that it was the Blue Dog Democrats — timid, Republican-imitating centrists — who had doomed the party. On air, Greenwald called O’Donnell’s contentions “absurd,” but that wasn’t enough. Over the next few days, on his popular Salon blog, he attacked both O’Donnell’s demeanor (“adolescent”) and substance (“trite,” “superficial,” and “empirically false”).

Given the current information, the jury is out on both the motives of Snowden and Greenwald.  Greenwald is a leftist, and definitely would not be expected to be critical of Barack Obama and his administration.  Perhaps his motive is more about weakening the Intelligence gathering capabilities of the United States clandestine agencies.  At this point, it all remains a mystery.  However, in the mystical world of espionage, information, and propaganda spreading, who really knows what the end game is in a particular incident  and who the real players are?
