Senator Lindsey Graham believes that “the dam is about to break on Benghazi. We’re going to find a system failure before, during, and after the attacks. We’re going to find political manipulation seven weeks before an election. We’re going to find people asleep at the switch when it comes to the State Department, including Hillary Clinton.”
John Bolton, former UN Ambassador and current senior fellow for the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) remarked that “the three witnesses who have been identified are not bystanders. These are not people who are going to report on hearsay of what somebody in Tripoli told somebody that they heard from. These are people who are directly involved in different capacities before, during and after the attack.”
The whistleblowers that are testifying at the House Oversight Committee (HOC) hearing this week are:
• Gregory N. Hicks, deputy chief of mission at the alleged US Embassy in Libya and highest-ranking U.S. diplomat during Benghazi attacks
• Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine who now serves as deputy coordinator for operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau
• Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the top security officer in Libya
At a HOC hearing in 2012, Nordstrom explained that Benghazi security was weak and there was an increased concern. In fact, when Stevens requested that the DoS provide more security for him in Libya, he was denied. Since Clinton is ultimately responsible for providing diplomatic security, she would have had to refuse that request.
It is expected that there will be an admission from the whistleblowers that Hillary Clinton, former US Secretary of State, was personally involved in the decision to have assistance stand down which resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans at Benghazi; including J. Christopher Stevens.
The Obama administration will be implicated in the events leading up to the attack in Benghazi.
At the HOC hearing, Hicks said rumors that Stevens was taken to the hospital and Twitter feeds identifying the attackers added to the confusion of the situation. “At this point, this response team looks like it may be a hostage rescue team. We are going to need to send them to try to save the ambassador who is in the hospital that is, as far as we know, under enemy control.”
Special Forces teams were told to stand down while the gated-villa was allegedly being evacuated.
Hicks said that Stevens called him from a phone he did not recognize to exclaim that the villa was under attack.
A report provided by the Administrative Review Board (ARB) for the Department of State (DoS) plays a role in this exposure of Benghazi.
The report states :
• US Military declined use of jets to disburse the attackers
• AFRICOM did not release Special Forces to assist in Tripoli
• CIA claimed attack was al-Qaeda terrorists
• Obama administration blamed the anti-Islamic film as cause
• DoS refused Foreign Emergency Response Team to Benghazi
The DoS released a statement concerning the report from the ARB: “The interagency response was timely and appropriate, but there simply was not enough time given the speed of the attacks for armed U.S. military assets to have made a difference. Senior-level interagency discussions were underway soon after Washington received initial word of the attacks and continued through the night.”
Last year, Clinton admitted that she was aware of extremist militant groups in the area that were operating in Libya, yet she failed to say that her direct knowledge of the Salafis who were tied to the Muslim Brotherhood were employed by the National Transitional Council (NTC) and Saudi Arabian government to enact the “hit” on Stevens.
Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith who was killed at Benghazi, blames Clinton for her loss. Smith said: “Why was there no security for him? When they were supposed to have security and the security that they did have was called back. It just — things do not add up and I’m just told lies.”
Smith continues: “Of course, it’s political. That’s the way it’s been. That’s how they’re treating it. That’s what they’re doing with it. They’re making it into something that — why don’t they just do their job? They didn’t do their job and now they’re hiding behind the word political and going from there.”
House Representative Darrell Issa, chairman of the HOC, believes that “If Hillary Clinton is not responsible for the before, during and after mistakes . . . it’s somebody close. There certainly are plenty of people close to the former secretary who knew, and apparently were part of the problem.”
The political theater happening on Capitol Hill regarding Benghazi has masked several facts from the public while claiming to reveal important information that whistleblowers are divulging to expose the Obama administration.
The first tip-off that the truth is not being told is that the gated-villa in Benghazi that was rented by the DoS where Stevens and three other Americans were killed is still being referred to as a US embassy. The nearest US embassy is located in Tripoli.
Indeed the landlord, Mohammad al-Bishari, confirmed that the men who attacked the villa, threw grenades over the walls, shoot and killed the US Marines who tried to defend Stevens; then looted and stole sensitive documents containing the names of Libyans working with the US and the Saudi Arabian government in terroristic operations, as well as oil contracts tying the US and Saudi Arabia, and burned it to the ground after murdering Stevens. The assailants were armed with American assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and carried the black flag of the Ansar al-Sharia
The second clue is that the 14 minute film produced by Sam Bacile, informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) whose real name is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, was the cause of the outrage which resulted in an attack in Benghazi.
Then Obama claimed that the attack on Benghazi was a deal-gone-bad wherein Stevens was supposed to be kidnapped in exchange for the Blind Sheik. This story was a poor attempt to cover-up the actual events and hopefully stop the public from questioning why stories did not add up.
Another best kept secret is that Stevens was conducting surveillance missions for the CIA on the National Transitional Council (NTC), the defacto-government installed by the US after the assassination of Gaddafi, and their Salafi extremist ties which lead to the Muslim Brotherhood.
In truth, Stevens was conducting arms deals with the NTC while simultaneously spying on the NTC for the CIA. This was a true nature of Stevens’ diplomatic missions which were sanctioned by the DoS.
Some of Stevens’ deals for arms can be realized in the artillery and weapons being funneled to the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in Syria who are fighting the proxy war for the US. Stevens became the “liaison” between US-sponsored terrorist factions and the movement of arms to Syria to assist the FSA. And this is the reason Stevens was murdered.
Shipments to the FSA have come from Saudi Arabia where the Salafi terrorists originated and the PoS is used to further subversive interests. Thanks to the US, the Saudi government and Stevens, the FSA are the most heavily armed state-sponsored jihadist group in the Middle East.
One question that may not be answered by the whistleblowers is why Clinton and the Obama administration allowed the NTC to use Salafi extremists working with Ansar al-Sharia who are in fact Muslim Brotherhood militants to murder Stevens?
Clinton, was responsible for diplomatic security, and denied Stevens’ request. And in response, there was an order from the US government to disarm the US Marine Security by refusing them live ammo while allowing them to keep their guns.
Clinton, not wanting the Saudi connection to become common knowledge, and knowing that Stevens was directly involved in arms trade deals between the NTC and the Saudi government to arm the FSA in Syria paved the way for Stevens to be murdered.
It was confirmed that the FSA are being armed by Saudi Arabia. The attack in Aleppo was actually funded with ammunition and weaponry from the US-aligned Middle Eastern nation. The FSA denies knowledge of how they came to obtain this shipment from Saudi Arabia; however it is fairly obvious that the Salafi extremists in their country are supporting the US-backed terrorist faction. Saudi officials have also declined comment thinking that refusal to speak will correspond with their ignorance. Yet, Saudi ammunition has been used since the inception of the CIA-trained “rebels” paid for by “foreign aid” from the US and British governments.
Clinton allowed Stevens to be murdered because he was privy to direct knowledge that the Saudi government was selling arms that were being funneled to Syria and used by the FSA against Assad in the US proxy war.
