Benghazi: Is the Alleged
CIA Scandal Real?

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/7/2013 6:06:18 AM

Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda

John: please ask your congressional source if he supports a special committee to investigate. If he does not he may be part of the problem, and since you do not have that info in your article I do not take info from congress seriously.

I´ve always said there´s a huge reason Obama has tried to cover this up.Gunrunning to alqueda in Syria would be pretty bad I guess but I still think it´s worse than that because of the BS internet video they used as a cove up.That had to be planned in advance..There´s still the mystery of why 8 hours went by with no military response and Obama´s well timed disappearance.

The bottom line is why there was NO rescue of our consulate personnel. Left to die while O was busy. Busy doing what?

That is the real crime.

This happened in an election year - wholely due to the utter incompetence at the WH. The Obama Administration moved very quickly to cover this up which is how they blundered into the ridiculous u-Tube video excuse. Some brainchild toadie in the WH dreamed that one up then they sent Rice out to solemnly repeat this lie on every news show in the country. Hillary did what Hillary always does - quickly distanced herself from all of it. A string of fake illnesses kept her out of the news for weeks. The mission has been to avoid accountability at all costs and so far they have succeeded.

You have Spanky and Our Gang going up against Al Capone and the mob. Until these investigations get consolidated and triaged, scandal fatigue will be a huge problem. Al´s mob is counting on it.

Frankly, I am not sure if the Republicans are up to the task. There is no unity or defined strategy that will move all these investigations along. Get tough and demand the information and witnesses from the administration and quit spinning your wheels.

I watched CNN last night for the 1st time in years, after there was an L-Dot header about the upcoming Erin Burnett Benghazigate show. The hour was packed with details, timelines, legitimate questions. The presentation was UNbiased. I was stunned at her persistent questions & her ability to stay on track. Definitely worth watching if you can find a rerun or youtube.

Yesterday according to Rush ( quoting some news outlet) Valerie Jarrett gave the "stand down" order to Panetta and a General in the situation room in the WH. BO was off the grid.
If so ( and the story was in great detail), this could be huge. No Presidential advisor has the authority to issue such an order. Only the President can constitutionally. Other than the failure to save American lives, the big question is where was Bam for 8 hrs. and what was he doing?

Probably not, though I won´t completely discount it because it could be a double play. The only red light is the news media INTEREST in this, where they were busy digging holes and climbing in when our people were being murdered.

Sorry, John, but I disagree. The CIA Scandal is but one part of this multi-faceted scandal. The scandal actually STARTS with the gun-running to Syria, which was a JOINT operation b/t the State Dept and the CIA. EITHER the Syrians attacked our consulate to stop the gun-running or an Al Qaeda franchise attacked our consulate because, as terrorists are wont to do, they wanted to keep their weapons and inflict pain and embarrassment on the U.S. It´s one of two scenarios...either the Syrians got the best of us and interrupted the gun-running or the Al Qaeda terrorists, that we originally armed to overthrow Qaddafi got the best us and killed our people. Either way it is a scandal with Obama, Hillary and Rice all aware of the operation (along with Panetta) and when the manure hit the fan, none of them knew what to do b/c they are incompetent amateurs. Desperate to keep the gun-running under wraps, they concocted a half-baked story about a goofy Mohammed movie and, knowing they had willing accomplices in the press, foisted that on the American people during the election, and then had Candy Crowley back up the Won during the debate.

Get to the heart of the CIA operation and you blow the whole scandal wide open.

#9, I heard that too. Anywhere he was, he could have been reached, whether with his girlfriend..or some one else - they have phones. Drunk, on drugs, same thing over that long a period. Talking to Putin, sleeping, he could have been contacted. Look at the snipers and protection he had in Germany, he´s clearly paranoid. Paranoid people would keep their security close by. I doubt he would ever leave them behind.

However, there is one real possibility. What could he have been doing to not be in contact with someone? Frankly, I believe the only possibility is... really scary. Whether some posters want to admit it, prior drug use like Obama´s HAS been tied, through very real and credible research, to certain very, very serious mental illnesses. (We have a friend who, late in life, developed schizophrenia after years of heavy marijuana use. It is tragic, his life is destroyed. There was no actual genetic association, no nothing but the drugs.)

Serious stress can cause someone who is mentally ill to have certain reactions -including psychotic episodes.

A person in the throes of a psychotic episode wouldn´t be "available" no matter where they are on the planet. They aren´t in reality. They couldn´t come to the "Situation Room" to speak for themselves, or over the phone,so someone else, someone who knew about their "problem" would have to speak for them.

After all, this man clearly has some mental problems- the grandiosity, his bizarre behaviors, his narcissism, the constant and often unneeded lying, his name changes, the paranoia...

We deserve to know the truth...before he appoints a horse to his administration.

Re #8, it seems that that was what we were supposed to believe. That CNN´s report on the "truth" about Benghazi was factual, the real deal, unbiased.

You might want to have a look at this dissection of that broadcast, starting with the fact that it had to have been made some time ago as Erin Burnett is now "blooming" = hugely pregnant - and there was no sign of that in the video.

There are some shocking allegations here:

Another possibility:

Ambassador Stevens was to be snatched (unharmed) by the MB. He would then exchanged for the blind Sheik. The MB was told the facility would be unguarded.

Two things immediately went wrong; they couldn’t get Stevens out of the safe room before he died of smoke inhalation, and, unexpectedly, team showed up from the annex and ripped them up.

Having inadvertently killed their kidnap target, whom they had been told would be an easy snatch, they now found themselves, again contrary to promise, under an attack. Enraged at the double cross, they turned on the annex and killed their attackers.

The stand-down orders were part of the original deal with the MB that they would protected from a military response during the kidnapping. The CIA staffers on the ground are sequestered because they clearly saw that the “attack” was no such thing, at least until the double crossed MB turned their rage on the annex security staff, which had blind-sided them.

Obama was off the grid, as was Hillary, in order to have plausible deniability if things went wrong.

It looks more hopeful that we will eventually find out what happened during those crucial hours of the attack, not so in the beginning. Incredible that the where abouts of Obama can´t be pin pointed. Maybe they whould check the logue of his body guards.

I have never before seen a Washington wide coverup. Whatever is going on is known by powerful figures in both parties and they all want it buried. I have said before that it won´t surprise me if Obama knew nothing of the details of the covert operation. If I learned that McCain led the operation it also wouldn´t surprise me.

So they went to all that trouble to cover up some gun running to Syrian rebels which they do now in the open? Al Qaeda (or Ansar al Sharia or whoever) would have attacked the ´consulate´(actually a CIA outpost) in Benghazi without Stevens being there? All the fake gun fire with no one being killed between the Libyan local defenders and the al Qaeda attackers signified nothing (e.g. there was no prior agreement to make it look good as they accomplished their actual purpose like maybe kidnapping Stevens)? So Hillary and Obama seized on a patently absurd cover up based on an extremely suspicious (seemingly arranged) riot in Egypt over an obscure YouTube video nobody had seen, all at considerable risk (everyone knows the cover up is worse than the crime) just because maybe people would complain that this proved al Qaeda wasn´t on the run like Obama had said it was or maybe people wouldn´t like transferring arms to the Syrian rebels (which they were going to do openly anyway)? Man they spook easily.

# 3 & 4 agree, bottom line is ,where was the Commander in Chief evening ,morning of 9/11. It´s coming up to a year and no one in the House or Senate has confronted this occupant of the WH to ask that simple question.There´s obviously a WH cover up similar to the IRS/FEC cover up.The House is slowly ( is it once a week) to get lower etchelon IRS workers to spill the beans.Why not get the President or Vice President to answer under oath who ordered the hold ups on the Conservative 501 tax exempt form validations. All this happened before the last Presidential election. It gave the incompetant one an edge in being elected since both candidates were so close.It appears Obama is using his position and his ability to tag anyone he deems a threat just by eavesdropping ,monitoring our telephone lines.This twit has to go, enough is enough.I wonder what it cost the taxpayer to evacuate all these embassies. It´s an embarassment to all of us that this creep is a paper tiger.

#28 -- To your point #2, why would Syria or Russia complain about gun-running before the campaign? It would´ve gotten them nowhere, especially with the Obama-run media...they´d just fluff it off as conspiracy theories being spread by Syria and their allies. And, after the fact, neither Syria nor Russia would take credit as what they did, attacking an American Consulate, was an act of war.

We´re in the middle of a proxy war between the Sunnis and Shi´a, and the Obama Administration is on the side of the Sunnis (Al Qaeda), just look at who they´ve helped to depose and replace.

I have to disagree with posters who thought the CNN show last night was unbiased. Erin Burnett closed with her reasons why Bengahzi happened and remains unresolved -- the administration delaying for election and political reasons and the Republicans wanting revenge. Huh? What did the Republicans have to do with Obama and his flunkies´ actions (or inactions)on the night of the attack that caused the lives of 4 Americans? Burnett, John King and Obama are all cowards for not facing the music.

Yes, I suspected the gun-running thing too. The deal boomeranged on Obie and he had to go hide. As for CNN´s Benghazi special report last night, I did not get much out of it that I did not already know. I thought Burnett went pretty light on Obie (who gave the order to stand down?). But, for CNN, an hour of something is better than an hour of nothing.

We need to know who ordered that stand down. Someone (Obama, or Hillary) had to give that order and they should be charged with high treason. It sounds like Obama continuing to "side with the Muslims" as he said he would.

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment.

His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action.

But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal.

Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close,” Bloomberg told the Times.

Climate change causing fish to

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
