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.
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.
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.
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.
Saudi $$$ has bought and paid for the American government, dems and repubs. Sharia is being implemented throughout the U.S. gradually but continuously. The building of mosques, the attack on Christian symbols and ideals. We have been sold out by our government and the press.

All the activity on all the world´s stage is centered around one central drama - the battle between Isaac and Esau. Is is the central conflict of the ages. We are the privileged generation that will watch the final act.
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.

Catherine Herridge at FOX has been saying, almost from the beginning, this will all lead back to Obama administration gun-running through Turkey to Syria. I will add, gun-running to Al Queda... that is something worthy of this massive cover-up.
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.
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.
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.
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.
President Barack Obama is returning to The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Obama will appear on the Aug. 6 broadcast of NBC´s late-night talker, which would mark his sixth time and the fourth appearance since becoming president. According to NBC, Obama plans to discuss jobs initiatives and the economy during his visit. Previous Tonight Show appearances were Dec. 1, 2006; Oct. 17, 2007; March 19, 2009 — marking the first time a current president appeared on a late-night talker; Oct. 25, 2011; and Oct. 24, 2012. Obama has made the late-night rounds over the years,
An American international politics publication has reported that the US Air Force plans to dispatch fighter jets and tanker aircraft to northern Australia in the next year. Foreign Policy magazine said it was part of a US strategy to dramatically expand its air defence presence across the Pacific and South-East Asia. (Snip) In a breakfast media briefing, he is reported saying the US would send "fighters, tankers and, at some point in the future, maybe bombers on a rotational basis" to Darwin. General Carlisle is reported to have said the aircraft would initially go to the RAAF base in Darwin
Most fishermen are guilty of the odd photobrag, but none can match this bloke´s cockiness. The Victorian fisherman celebrated catching a huge shark by climbing inside the gutted fish, poking his arm through its gills and posing for a joke shot with his knife buried between its eyes. In a world where every angler is pictured next to his prize catch with a thumbs up, it´s becoming increasingly difficult for intrepid fishermen to stand out. But this guy - let´s call him the Shark Slayer - certainly managed it. ´Arch´, who works at the Metung Hotel in Gippsland, was present when the photo was taken.
Washington - U.S. spy agencies plan to release newly declassified documents as early as this week about the National Security Agency surveillance programs revealed by former contractor Edward Snowden, and also material related to a secret intelligence court, a U.S. intelligence official said on Tuesday. (Snip) The documents would also include information about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the official said. That court operates in secrecy in making decisions on government surveillance requests. The Washington Post reported late Tuesday that senior U.S. officials said one of the orders
Washington - President Barack Obama has asked two senior Republican senators to travel to Egypt to meet with its military leaders and the opposition, as Cairo´s allies struggle with how to address the turmoil convulsing the country. (Snip) U.S. officials have been grappling with how to respond to the situation in Egypt since its elected Islamist president, Mohamed Mursi, was ousted by the military on July 3. In particular, they have struggled with how to handle the $1.55 billion in mostly military aid Washington sends to Cairo each year. Egypt has long been an important U.S. ally
In a significant victory for law enforcement, a federal appeals court on Tuesday said that government authorities could extract historical location data directly from telecommunications carriers without a search warrant. The closely watched case, in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, is the first ruling that squarely addresses the constitutionality of warrantless searches of historical location data stored by cellphone service providers. Ruling 2 to 1, the court said a warrantless search was “not per se unconstitutional” because location data was “clearly a business record”
Washington - Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday that Israeli and Palestinian negotiators would convene again in the Middle East within two weeks and that their goal would be to work out a comprehensive peace agreement within nine months that would lead to an independent Palestinian state. (Snip) “Our objective will be to achieve a final status agreement over the course of the next nine months,” Mr. Kerry said. “We all understand the goal that we’re working towards: two states living side by side in peace and security.” As they resume peace talks that have been moribund since 2010,
Three former high-ranking Penn State officials, including the university’s former president, Graham B. Spanier, were ordered Tuesday to stand trial on charges that they were part of a cover-up related to the child sexual abuse scandal involving the former football coach Jerry Sandusky. After a two-day preliminary hearing this week, Harrisburg District Judge William Werner decided there was enough evidence against Spanier, the retired university vice president Gary Schultz and the former athletic director Tim Curley to proceed with a trial, which could start later this year.
Anti-Christian extremist groups like the ACLU, the Freedom From Religion Foundation and People for the American Way hate God. They also hate America. True America. These "progressive" outfits - along with like-minded politicos, judges, Hollywood elitists and left-wing media-types - hate that this great nation was expressly founded upon the bedrock precepts of the Judeo-Christian tradition. And so, in response, they lash out. They endeavor first to raze our God-blessed America, and then raise, from the rubble, a godless America fashioned in their own secular-socialist self-image.
Last week, Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R.) sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.), “informing Senator Reid that we will not vote for a continuing resolution that funds Obamacare,” risking a government shutdown if Lee’s objectives are not achieved. While eleven other Senate Republicans have signed on to Lee’s letter, other Republicans are denouncing the move in surprisingly direct language. “It’s not an achievable strategy…and it’s dishonest,” said Sen. Tom Coburn (R., Okla.). “It’s the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard of,” added Sen. Richard Burr (R., N.C.).
Republican U.S. senators pushed for more transparency on aid to Egypt, if not an outright end to the $1.3 billion per year in military assistance, as U.S. officials struggled on Monday with how to respond to the crisis in Cairo. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has introduced an amendment to a Senate transportation funding bill that would end military aid to Egypt under a U.S. law banning aid to countries that have experienced military coups, and redirect the money to domestic infrastructure projects. Senate aides said on Monday that the bill and Paul's
Sacramento - Gloria Steinem, Jesse Jackson, Bonnie Raitt and Jay Leno have joined prison hunger strikers in calling for an end to California´s use of solitary confinement to control prison gang violence. The civil rights crusaders, singer and late-night comedian are among those who signed a letter sent Monday to Gov. Jerry Brown. The letter calls isolation units "extensions of the same inhumanity practiced at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay." The letter to Brown, to be followed by a demonstration Tuesday at the Capitol, was arranged by the National Religion Campaign Against Torture and local
There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament. According to a report published Monday in the
It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. But within a decade, it is expected that the ocean which the village of Kivalina has so relied on will completely destroy it--creating America´s first climate change refugees. Temperatures in the Arctic region of Alaska are warming twice as fast as the rest of the U.S, causing ice to retreat, sea levels to rise and coastal erosion to increase. It is a small Alaskan village whose inhabitants have relied on the sea for countless generations. The 400 indigenous Inuit inhabitants of Kivalina, who live
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
I never thought the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case deserved nearly the attention it got. But reasonable people can disagree about that. What strikes me as unconscionable, however, is the way the supposedly objective media have not only sensationalized a tragedy but at times appear to deliberately bend the facts to fit a desired story line. Maybe it started with the use of pictures of a younger Martin or with the sudden embrace of the term "white Hispanic" to describe Zimmerman in order to more easily paint him as a racist. NBC News was the most egregious offender
No matter how much you may hope for it, it seems unlikely that you´ll be using the phrase "Senator Sarah Palin" with any great regularity in 2015. A new poll indicates that the former Alaska governor is about as popular in the state as Barack Obama — which is to say, not very popular at all. But even more surprising, while the former vice presidential candidate has made Alaska a central part of her public image, the state´s residents split on the question of whether Palin is all that Alaskan. Conducted by Public Policy Polling,
