I wish I could call this unbelievable:


In January, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a report on the assault by a local militia in September 2012 on the American consulate and a nearby undercover CIA facility in Benghazi, which resulted in the death of the US ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and three others. The report’s criticism of the State Department for not providing adequate security at the consulate, and of the intelligence community for not alerting the US military to the presence of a CIA outpost in the area, received front-page coverage and revived animosities in Washington, with Republicans accusing Obama and Hillary Clinton of a cover-up.

That’s the part you’ve heard about: failure to protect the personnel at the embassy.
But then Hersh breaks the deeper story wide open:


A highly classified annex to the report, not made public, described a secret agreement reached in early 2012 between the Obama and Erdoğan administrations. It pertained to the rat line. By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA, with the support of MI6, was responsible for getting arms from Gaddafi’s arsenals into Syria. A number of front companies were set up in Libya, some under the cover of Australian entities. Retired American soldiers, who didn’t always know who was really employing them, were hired to manage procurement and shipping. The operation was run by David Petraeus, the CIA director who would soon resign when it became known he was having an affair with his biographer. (A spokesperson for Petraeus denied the operation ever took place.)

Been hearing a little bit here and there for the past few weeks ~ not sure how reliable these scoops are ... I guess the missing plane news sort of took a bit of the wind outta the sails on this one ... when things quiet down over the missing plane we'll see how high the fan is on this pile of stink ~

Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador murdered in Libya, played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria, according to Egyptian security officials speaking to WND.

So, are we fighting against jihadist's or are we fighting along side jihadist's.  Our government really needs to stop all of the back stabbing immoral actions on behalf of corporate interests (big oil) and in order to screw over other countries (Russia).

come on is this really important? I mean look we have this "blade" runner who shot his girlfriend in the toilet for goodness sakes! how can a U.S. ambassador being killed on the northside of that continent be more important then that?
this is old news  anyways. it happened far enough in the past Obama could spin this into being Bush's fault especially since big oil is involved.

this post brings up another point what the hell ever happened to Syria?

I'm fairly certain they were.

Anyways, here I am thinking the Cold War ended before I was born. Looks like its just going on with the players names changed.

Well all these spies we have need to do something! What are we to do, REDUCE expenses by getting rid of government employees we don't strictly need?

The Democrats will be sorry if they nominate Mrs. Clinton as in that case the chance of the truth of what happened there coming out will be increased exponentially.

The present regime has pretty much won in Syria, mainly because of the Russians being willing to tolerate things the west won't.

The Dems have become arrogant - drunk with power and they probably feel the people of the country are too stupid or distracted to stop a Hillary juggernaut.  IF control of the Senate changes this year and the repubs can finally bring real pressure on the ptb then maybe some facts will become available that would create too big an obstacle for her - but the repubs have a real history of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory :-(

We've been in beds with Jihadis since 1980; do we really even need to ask at this point?

They're a convenient excuse when things don't go well.  It's like blaming your sex partner for problems in the bedroom.

Sometimes problems in the bedroom are your sex partner's fault.
