Benghazi explained:
Interview with an “Intelligence Insider”

Canada Free Press, by Doug Hagmann

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/28/2012 10:19:18 PM

This is part one of a multi-part interview with a government insider intimately familiar with the events that took place in Benghazi. In this part, he provides important background, and explains this administration is engaged in a massive cover-up. DH: It’s been a while since we’ve discussed Benghazi. What have you heard lately? II: Before I answer that, I want to get a few things off my chest. Every politician, whether it’s a congressman senator, diplomat, or their spokespeople and the media are lying to the American public every time they call the location of the attack a consulate. It was not.

Comments:
More fuel for the fire in our bellies.

OK, so arms to Syrian rebels is the key? If so, what the hell was the ambassador doing in the middle of this "non-consulate" setting? Why was he so exposed?

I agree with the "informant" that we are under attack in many ways, whether terrorist or financial terrorism and the attack on our currency. No one can doubt our vulnerability. If our currency is tied to oil, we need to develop our domestic resources so that they are ready when the cut off occurs. Like the 30´s, we have a progressive politician that is in it for the power. Despite the warning clouds, Roosevelt and Obama were/are doubling down to weaken us and make us vulnerable to attack.

Question is: Do we have the resources and the will to combat it?

FWIW I have been following Hagmann at his website "Northeast Intelligence Network" for years. He tends to be a paranoid, alarmist, conspiracy type. Frequently, though, he is way out in front with the real story.

Thanks poster. Very well-written story and I believe we are finally getting the truth about what happened in Benghazi. It all fits in with Obama and Hillary´s strange behavior trying to cover up what happened with some ridiculous story about a video no one had ever seen. Benghazi was never a "Consulate", it was a big CIA operation headquarters. Our suspicions were correct, "Ambassador" Stevens was indeed basically a gun runner for funneling Libya´s arms to terrorists. It makes Fast and Furious look like Sunday School stuff. It may even explain why Obama worked to topple Ghadafi in the first place. Some kind of grand scheme to destabilize Syria through
arming terrorist rebels. Didn´t we learn anything from what happened in Afghanistan? We armed terrorists there to fight the Soviet Union, only to have that scheme come back to bite us with Osama Bin Laden and the
Taliban. No wonder Putin and Russia hate
the U.S. and want to hurt us back. They are far more clever about it, though. We seem to be a bunch of Amateur players over there in the Middle East.

Twice voted in as president of the US, twice caught running guns to very bad people and twice caught covering up the truth. Hillary took full responsibility for the event and has not been seen in the country since. Any old white guys in the loop have been thrown out on their ears for sex escapades. Congress has been sidelined and marginalized by it´s reluctance to do it´s job. The judicial branch is neutered completely.

The great cry of rebellion from the majority of Americans is..."give me free stuff"? The war cry of the Republican party is, "Don´t worry, everything is fine. We are going to give a lot of free stuff to illegal immigrants and we will win in 2016.".

I shudder to think of what individual rights will exist in four years now that presidential executive decree is the only law of the land.

Sounds implausible to me. It argues that Fauxbama actually has a plan. I´m ready to believe that he´s prepared to kiss the Saudis´ behinds, but anything beyond the campaigning/ceremonial doesn´t sound like him.

As most former military guys immediately knew the Administration´s story was phoney.

As we asked back on 9/15 - where are the "survivors"?

How come no media at all has brought them in front of the cameras?

If it was all a CIA black op, it makes a lot of sense.

Bottom line still is, Obama let an Ambassador die on his watch, while watching real time.

Shame, shame.

I´ve written many times in other venues and here a few times about the plunging dollar. DH says the attack has yet to be successful. He is right only on the surface. Since hussein got into office the dollar has lost 30% by some estimates. And yes, all oil is traded in $US. The attempt to replace the dollar with the Euro and the Yuan have not been completely effective, but they have made a huge dent in their attempts to destroy the $US.

Europe,since the revolution and before has been after control of the world´s currency. Now China has even made innuendos that they might dump dollars or refuse to accept them for trade. As yet, they depend on our bucks to stay alive.

You bet, our economy is tied directly to oil. The cost of gas is directly tied to the value of the dollar, not availability. That is our biggest threat on the global scene. Bill Clinton once said it wasn´t fair the WE were the only super power. hussein is the mechanism to make that happen and he´s doing it partially by keeping us dependent on foreign oil which has been a primary tool to devalue the $US.

Our US Supreme Court is the next target because when hussein gets done with it, it will not support our core values of free enterprise. We have seen just the rim of the well into which our economy is about to plunge when the dollar collapses.

Make the connection all the way back to the Khalid Al Mansour link to Obama´s education -- paid for by the Saudis.

Next think about all of the obstacles the president has thrown in the way of our energy independence.

Was he bought and paid for a long time ago?

So Benghazi > Iran-Contra

With Iran-Contra, we only negotiated/dealt with the terrorists in Iran in order to fund/ship arms to the Contras.

With Benghazi, we are funding/supplying arms directly to the terrorists.

Geez!

If this is all true, it not only explains Rice´s lies, but it validates so many suspicions by Americans that something big is going on beneath the radar and that the media are being lied to, also.

The Obama administration is playing the role of Saudi Arabia’s private army. I think if Americans knew this, they would be outraged. Our service men and women are being sold out as mercenaries for the wants and desires of the Royal family, for the Saudi’s interests. It’s about religious dominance and oil.

The various scenarios of total deliberate collapse of the US to foreign blackmail by oil, and of Muslim takeover of the world become more reasonable to assume.

This makes the "stand down" order the equivalent of providing a suicide capsule for a spy to use in enemy territory. The problem became the brave Americans who were not in the CIA need to know loop and disobeyed orders.

World events have become so twisted and convoluted to the point that I no longer know what to believe. I do know, however, that MY country is heading down a steep, slippery slope with no way to stop it. Or a least in today´s political atmosphere. I don´t know if I should believe all of this article, some of it, or none of it. I don´t trust Obozo and his clowns any further that I can throw the Capital building.

My only choice of action is to buy and store more ammo. I feel that sooner rather than later it will be needed.

17 nails it. Hagmann´s thesis (see also referenced article by Michael Reagan) consistent with long-standing US-Saudi "relationship" and Sunni-Shiite enmity. Growing up in Indonesia, Obama would have been raised a Sunni. Any pictures of Dear Leader bowing to Ahmanidiot? Bet not.

So simple. Because neither Dems nor Reps will allow us to dig for oil and refine it here in the USA any more, we are forced to get involved in nasty games with Russia and the Mid-East. And nothing is going to change until we have men such as Michael Reagan running the country instead of these insipid, greedy Republicans and marxist democrats.

Khalid al Mansour owns Obama lock stock and barrel. He was responsible for getting Obama his politically necessary Harvard Law admission, and paid the bills.

Obama is overtly choking America´s oil production and devaluing the dollar. He has overtly, although inadvertently, promised to help the Soviets implement their agenda.

The administrations´s frantic, risible cover-up of the benghazi operation is proof positive of mischief that mustn´t be made public, and whatever that mischief might be, the fact that it was occurring in a swamp of terrorism and a flood of heavy weaponry, means it wasn´t a trivial endeavor.

It is nothing short of astounding that Congress isn´t all over this bizarre Presidency and its baldly treasonous foreign affairs, domestic economic piracy, and public deceit.

Is free stuff worth this?

This tale sounds a little too conspiratorial.

At some level I hope our "leaders" are capable of this type of strategic thought. But I suspect all they really know are fund raising and elections. Maybe I´m naive. I think TelePrompTer is stupid outside of those two topics. Of course, who knows who is directing his stupidity.

No. This was an OP to kidnap the Ambassador and hold him hostage for trading the Blind Sheik.

Why an ambassador? Why did they send in an ambassador to clean up the arms that had been sent to the Libyan rebels? Surely such a task could be handled by the CIA operatives. Was the ambassador a trade? E.g. the terrorists capture the ambassador, demand he be traded for the blind sheik or other terrorists. Instead, either by accident or on purpose he got killed and the whole scheme blew up? There are a lot of layers to his onion.

Canada Free Press posted Hagmann´s Part 2 this morning. In it, he states that the media has known all of this all along.

So, assuming what the media knows Congress also knows, one wonders what the Dog and Pony Show of the Congressional Hearings is supposed to achieve.

At least half the stuff in this article is true.

0bama IS giving advanced small weapons to his Muslim Brotherhood friends. The Syrian ´Rebels´ were bragging about a big supply of Stinger missile systems and other goodies.

Stevens, a islamophile was there brokering the transfer. And for something else... islamo isn´t the only ´phile´ problem he had.

I can not believe some of the posters here. You actually say that you have faith in your leaders here in America? Have you lost your mind? I quit trusting my leaders while lying on a hill on the Laotian border in Vietnam in 1969, near death.
And by the way, Chris Stevens was a CIA agent in ambassador clothing. If the ex seals (who were CIA agents) were involved in this rogue administration´s weapons running to kill 40,000 innocent civilians....I have no remorse for them either.
We have a rogue President and administration, it is time for the officer corps to speak up....or they should be imprisoned some day as well.
I think there is also a connection with the gun running to the Mexican cartel. Lot of weapons running going on around here.

It is very possible Obama is doing the bidding of Saudi Arabia. Two reasons: 1.
The Saudis financed the education of some American blacks looking ahead to the time when they could be useful in our government. I´ll bet Obama was one of them.
2. We have all forgotten the deep bow Obama gave the king of Saudi Arabia. What seemed like a religious gesture may well have been an acknowledgment of Obama´s obedience to the authority of the king.

#34 thanks for the link to part II of the article. Very chilling, but the fact we are able to read these articles shows that Obama and his goons were not able to hide everything from the American people. In fact Obama may not care that some of us do know what really happened and why. After all, we are a very small minority and 99.9% of American citizens will go along blissfully ignorant and won´t care, as long as they get thier free Obamaphones and checks from the government. But we should remember how close we are to World War III. This is a very "hot" cold war and it could degrade into a shooting war very quickly, with the American people the losers in all this. Think of $20/gallon gas in the near future.

Our ambassador to Libya was fluent in Arabic and knew a lot of people on all sides around the Mid-East.

When dealing with Arabs (even in lowly garbage barge fee negotiations, (my vast experience)) it is very advantageous to have someone, at least as translator, that is on your side. I would imagine you would definitely need talent on your side to engage in successful arms distribution.

We should all be grateful for the Canada Free Press which seems to have an infinitely better handle on the truth than all the obfsucating party line mouthpieces dissembling daily before our eyes and ears. Posters who relate Obama´s education with Saudi money via Khalid Mansour and Percy Sutton did their homework long ago, some of us before he got elected the first time. So the comedy in Washington DC continues each trying to out lie and out cover the other -crooks all of them . We have a vile collection supposedly doing the nation´s work. It is past time to boot them out and end this disastrous two party system.Stevens hjands were not exactly clean, the heroes remain the dead four.

Kiev, Ukraine - For two weeks, the mysteriously well-armed, professional gunmen known as “green men” have seized Ukrainian government sites in town after town, igniting a brush fire of separatist unrest across eastern Ukraine. Strenuous denials from the Kremlin have closely followed each accusation by Ukrainian officials that the world was witnessing a stealthy invasion by Russian forces. Now, photographs and descriptions from eastern Ukraine endorsed by the Obama administration on Sunday suggest that many of the green men are indeed Russian military and intelligence forces — equipped in the same fashion as Russian

The official said that the scale of the strikes against AQAP is "massive and unprecedented" and that at least 30 militants have been killed. The operation involved Yemeni commandos who are now "going after high-level AQAP targets," the official said.

Tactical advantage: Russian military
shows off impressive new gear

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 10:06:40 PM     Post Reply
Elite Russian troops are displaying a new arsenal of body armor, individual weapons, armor-piercing ammunition and collar radios — a menu of essential gear that gives them a big tactical advantage against a lesser-equipped Ukrainian army. If President Vladimir Putin orders an invasion, the new-generation body armor, in particular, would provide exceptional protection against small arms if Russian troops go street by street to capture Kiev and other cities. “What we saw and what was dangled in front of the West was a clear indication that Putin is on a roll,” retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Robert Scales said. “It just seems to me from watching

But military rules said that fear of death was a rational response, so anyone who asked to be grounded could not possibly be truly crazy. And those who were insane would not be aware of the fact, and therefore would be unable to ask to be grounded.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
