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.

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.

Layers of the onion, yes. Both the Bad Guys and the Good Guys...or both Bad Guys I and Bad Guys II.

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.

Perth, Australia - Australia’s prime minister says searchers hunting for the missing Malaysian jetliner are confident underwater signals that have been picked up are coming from the jet’s black box. Tony Abbott told reporters while on an official visit to China that Australian authorities are confident they know the location of the black box from the plane that disappeared without a trace on March 8 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing. The plane’s black boxes, or flight data and cockpit voice recorders, could help solve the mystery of why Flight 370 veered so far off course.

Budget Chief Is Choice

Washington - Even when Sylvia Mathews Burwell was in her early 30s, friends speculated that she might return to her native Hinton, W.Va., and run for governor someday. After all, she had been a Rhodes scholar, and her mother — who later became mayor of Hinton, pop. 2,600 — had driven her daughter’s interest in politics. So far that has not happened, but plenty of other things under two presidents have. On Friday, President Obama is to nominate Ms. Burwell, currently director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to take over one of the largest and most unwieldy parts of the federal bureaucracy as secretary of health and

A friend of mine teaches a class that includes a lot of children from families caught up in the government welfare system, a system that encourages dependency and discourages self-reliance. She told me that the students sometimes come to class on test day without even bringing a pencil. Without a pencil, the kids face getting a zero on the test, but that, my teacher-friend said, was the point. Because they know the public schools will push them along

Stephen Colbert: CBS CEO Les Moonves

When David Letterman announced last week that he was stepping down as the host of CBS´ "Late Show" in 2015, speculation went into overdrive about who would replace him. On Thursday, the rumor mill was put to rest when the network announced that Stephen Colbert had been given the gig. (Snip) Colbert, 49, has played the role of an ultra-right wing talk-show host, a character he´s almost never broken from during his time on Comedy Central. In an interview Thursday with CBS Radio's Dan Raviv, CBS Chairman and CEO Les Moonves said that "Late Show" viewers can expect to see Colbert be himself in his new role.

Black female lawmakers have now weighed in on an Army controversy over what one soldier calls “racially biased” hairstyle regulations. Sixteen female members of the Congressional Black Caucus signed a letter Thursday to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, stating that the changes are “discriminatory rules targeting soldiers who are women of color,” the Associated Press reported. The rule in question, Army Regulation 670-1, bans hairstyles that require twists and dreadlocks, among other options preferred by minority soldiers. Sgt. Jasmine Jacobs of the Georgia National Guard, has petitioned the White House to overturn the policy.

A panel of House Republicans voted on Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, citing her refusal to answer questions about the agency’s targeting of conservative organizations for special scrutiny. The 21-12 vote by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which has been probing the alleged abuse since the scandal erupted last spring, broke along party lines: each of the panel’s Republicans voted to censure Lerner, while the Democrats on the committee opposed the resolution. The vote comes a day after Republicans on a separate committee formally requested the Department of Justice to

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged
