Evidence continues to pile up that the fiasco in Benghazi which cost the lives of four Americans including the United States ambassador to Libya was a lot more orchestrated that admitted.
Judicial Watch acquired information from 23 Freedom of Information Act requests and four lawsuits against the Obama Administration. As former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to stonewall with the Obama Administration on releasing pertinent information, it is quite extraordinary that Judicial Watch is the only non-political organization working in federal court to unlock the truth.
According to a story released by Christian Broadcast News on Thursday, September 12 of this year, evidence has been presented with these shocking facts:
The United States may have been using the Benghazi office as a hub to send weapons to Islamist rebels in Syria that have possible links to al Qaeda. The dilemma for American involvement may be moot with the revelation that rebels are already being armed with weapons from the United States.
Another bombshell uncovered is the State Department contracted out the embassy’s security to a Jihadist group called the February 17 Martyrs Brigade militia which is known to have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Even after more than 30 violent acts in and around Benghazi were reported, the State Department repeatedly ignored requests to beef up security.
In the report acquired by Judicial Watch regarding the attack taking place against the embassy, the Jihadist group failed repeatedly to respond to calls for help during the terrorist attack. This fact is evidence that the attack was planned and the decision to hand over embassy security to a Jihadist group was foolhardy at best.
Judicial Watch gave a scathing indictment against the “stonewalling” of the Obama Administration and declared Benghazi is a “story of political treachery in high places”. In an effort to put a stranglehold on information, the Obama Administration had survivors of the terror attack sign non-disclosure agreements according to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch.http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/politics/2013/September/Report-Describes-Political-Treachery-in-Benghazi-Cover-Up/?fb_ref=fb_top_news#.UjJKH_-z1DA.facebook
The Obama Administration’s claim of transparency is a sham when considering all of the scandals involving the IRS, NSA, TSA, and Justicel Department which has to do with spying and violating constitutional guarantees. The governmental reach of acquiring information has expanded to Google, Yahoo, and other Internet information hubs where the government has even attempted to bypass encryption of information.
Ambassador Christopher Stevens was working with the government of Turkey and cargo shipments at the time of the attack on the embassy. Stevens met with Mahmoud El-Mufti who is owner of a Libya based shipping company called Al-Marfa. Stevens’ final meeting was with Ali Akin, the Turkish Consul General in Benghazi.
The total lack of accountability and disclosure has been the most troubling issue concerning the Benghazi terror attack. The poor decision to depend on a Jihadist group for the embassy’s security is an error in calculation in the highest order. Why did the Obama Administration muzzle the survivors with a non-disclosure agreement if there was nothing to hide?
It is ironic that on the observance of 9/11 and anniversary of the attack of the embassy at Benghazi that our State Department would even think about considering partnering with a group that orchestrated the 9/11 attack regardless of the reason. Even Obama’s closest supporters are scratching their heads on this one.
