Benghazi Exclusive: Libyans Couldn’t Protect Americans they didn’t know were in Libya

8 May 2013 7 Comments

How many Americans were working in Libya when the terrorist attack killed four Americans, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith, on September 11, 2012? According to a well-placed source that was working with the staff at the Libyan Transitional National Council (TNC) that was established after Col. Muammar Gaddafi was killed, at that time, the talk there was very surprising.

Apparently the Libyans thought America had only a handful of people in Eastern Libya and Benghazi. They were surprised to learn the real number. Is it a couple thousand, a couple hundred, what’s the real number and how many witnesses need to be questioned if America is to be told the truth? What I can report is the number exceeds the number of witnesses who will testify today in the Oversight & Government Reform Committee hearing. As I was told, there weren’t enough seats on one plane to bring them all home. Libya’s TNC was shocked because how could they possibly help to protect the Americans if they didn’t know they were there? Is that why the Obama-Clinton regime did not send help, because no one was supposed to know that they were there?

It is not an exaggeration to say the Libyan people loved Ambassador Christopher Stevens and were genuinely devastated by his death. This was evident by the numbers who showed up after the terrorist attack in sorrow to pay their respects and offer their apologies for what had happened in their homeland. Notice how none of the Libyan people were afraid to go to the annex or villa to pay their respects while the Obama-Clinton regime kept the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) away from Benghazi for nearly a month, according to the Associated Press, supposedly for security reasons—another lie. Without a doubt the Obama-Clinton regime tied the FBI’s hands to thwart the investigation. Next question, what were all these Americans doing there? Who was overseeing them?

While some of the Republicans’ efforts have been noble by finally forcing the media to acknowledge the Obama administration’s “official” Benghazi story is a joke and, yes, Benghazi is not some political witch hunt, the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee’s Benghazi hearing will not be enough. No one committee is going to be able to resolve this with the constraints they face. Congress is playing politics with the witnesses which is why there are so few people testifying.

Their purview is also heavily restricted by the Democrats because the Obama administration does not want to expose the broader operation that was happening in Libya with greater scrutiny. Politics must be taken out of the investigation. The American people must come first because Americans deserve to know what has been going on in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Turkey, Jordan and Syria in their name. Especially as we watch a a mass exodus of Christians out of the Muslim world.

What is needed is something akin to the Church Committee Hearings that investigated intelligence gathering for illegality by various agencies after the Watergate break-in that brought forth President Richard Nixon’s resignation.

Furthermore, based on the leaked testimony, Congress is not asking the right questions and they definitely do not have access to all the people involved. Even more troubling they are looking in the wrong place.

What was Ambassador Christopher Stevens meeting about with Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin? Why was he left so vulnerable and exposed in Benghazi?

It was not an accident that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s sham Advisory Review Board (ARB) report, a so-called investigation written by her friends didn’t bother to interview the Turkish Consul General or that my Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests were denied. In fact Hillary’s ARB blamed Ambassador Stevens for his death as previously reported. It was not a failure to respond to resources or an accident that when Tyrone Woods called for help, they received nothing, no help, no options, nothing.

The Benghazi bathroom. The last safe refuge. What happened here?

We know that Ambassador Christopher Stevens technically served under State but he was also a CIA asset. Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were CIA assets and Global Response Staff (GRS). This hybrid State/CIA diplomatic-intelligence machine that they were a part of which is changing the Middle East into the United States of Islam is apparently unaccountable. Thus far I have not been able to get an inventory of the weapons recovered in Libya from the State Department as part of their MANPAD program, otherwise known as “buy-back,” funded by Hillary Clinton by using $40 million from taxpayers. Where did the money go? To State personnel, CIA, contractors, or Libya’s TNC? What we do know is that there are thousands, upon thousands of weapons that were in Libya as a part of Col. Gaddafi’s arsenal that are unaccountable.

What we also know is this current trajectory from Libya into Syria is headed for a broader conflict in the Middle East. Imagine genocide of Christians, Jews, Alawites, Sunnis versus Shiites, everyone if this continues any further.

Does anyone really believe Iran will sit back and do nothing? Does this explain why the Obama-Clinton regime refused to help the people of Iran, the true freedom-fighters, when they risked their lives by rising up against Iran’s brutal Mullah theocracy, and the largest state sponsor of terrorism, in 2009, during the Green revolution?

Remember in Iran, the Obama administration didn’t “meddle” despite the Iranian people’s cries for help, “Obama, you’re either with them or with us they said.” They were also ignored by the United Nations et el. But since then the Obama administration has “meddled” everywhere else with the “international community,” including NATO, and the Arab-League. Coincidence? Connect the dots since Iran’s Green revolution to Benghazi, next stop Syria. What do you see?
