Benghazi Investigations Are Focused On The Wrong Timeframe

My good friend who operates the Spellchek blog addressed this issue back in October. I agreed with him then and the more I think about the more I am convinced of it.

This is what is causing my frustration. Except for some limited questioning by congressional investigators of our State Department about why they decided not to provide adequate security for our diplomatic mission in Libya, all their investigating efforts have been focused on the day of the attack and what happened afterwards.

So far, approaching three months since the Benghazi tragedy, the investigations and Fox News have spent most of their time probing into why stand-down orders were given if they were given, why no assistance was given to the two ex.Nacy Seals who fought to their deaths against overwhelming terrorist forces for about seven hours, and why did this administration deliberately mislead the American public for two weeks about the true nature of the attack on our mission in Benghazi.  Don’t misunderstand me. Absolutely we deserve the answers to those important questions. My point is that if the investigators are serious about getting to the truth on those issues, they need to move the focus of their investigation to an earlier timeframe.

The answers we are seeking will be known when investigators expose what our government was up to in Libya during the months prior to the attacks on our Benghazi Consulate and the CIA outpost nearby.

What information that has leaked out about what our government was doing all points to the same conclusion. President Obama, his State Department, and the CIA were involved in a criminal activity. They were operating another illegal gun running operation. Not only were they breaking US laws, they were breaking international laws.  Our government was well aware when it decided to participate in overthrowing the government of Libya that there was a large cash of arms, including dangerous ground-to-air missiles that could take down commercial airliners and that it would be very bad if those arms fell into the wrong hands. Of course, that is exactly was happened. as anyone with half a brain could have predicted. So, after the fact, the CIA came up with a plan to bribe buy back those arms from the numerous militant groups, including some with ties to al Qaeda.  Then the CIA had a brainstorm and decided it would be a peachy idea to funnel those arms they were buying to the radical Muslim groups trying to tumble the government of Assad in Syria. They enlisted the help of Ambassador Stevens in Libya either, willingly or not, because he was truly one of America’s experts in the region and had great contacts with, for example, the Turkish government who could place the arms in the hands of selected militants in the Syrian civil war. According to some of the Fox News reports some of the militant groups in Libya were not happy with what the CIA was doing with arms they felt were rightfully their heritage from helping to bring down Gaddafi and it was probably  they who attack our mission and killed the Ambassador and three other brave Americans. [By the way, did some of those arms the CIA was diverting end up in the hands of Hamas in Gaza?  Was that just another SNAFU or was that intentional?]

This is why I believe we will finally get the answer we all want, if our invest move their focus of their investigation to learning what this administration was up to in Libya in the months ahead of the attack. That  is where the skeletons are buried who have all the answers that will explain what the Obama administration is really trying to cover up.

The Democratic National Committee’s news outlets have already begun their campaign to convince the American public that the Republican obsession on Benghazi is nothing more than sour grapes and ugly partisan politics. I am concerned that unless the congressional investigations can blow the lid off the criminal activities of the Obama’s administration in Libya, the truth and all of our unanswered questions will be swept under the proverbial rug.

Although, if the truth were known, it would be impeachable evidence against Barack Obama, I am under no illusion that impeachment will ever happen. My hope would be that if the congressional investigation exposed what our government was doing, and even though our media will continue to be complicit in the cover up, this scandal, unlike the Fast and Furious gun running scandal, might get the attention of international news media and that may force our media to finally cover the story. If that could happen, then at the very least, more of America’s public would know the truth and would know just how corrupt the Obama administration really is.

Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. They enlisted the help of Ambassador Stevens in Libya either, willingly or not…

    I think so too. And he may have balked when he couldn’t get enough security protection.

    Of course, no diplomat is supposed to be engaged in bringing down any foreign government. From what I know of Ambassador Stevens, he was a man of diplomatic integrity. I do wonder if he was getting ready to blow the whistle on Hillary’s unethical doings as Secretary of State.

  2. Your aim of full disclosure on the shenanigans that were going on with the gun running operation between Libya and Turkey and Syrian rebels is commendable. I wish it could come to pass; but I don’t expect the impetus will come from any 4th power, much less the international press who it is as much in bed with this administration as the American one, and who cares even less.

    The web of lies surpasses any John Le Carre story (I can hardly wait for the movie) and our men at the front line of our Congressional Committees are probably not up to the task, in great part because they don’t have the Constitutional power (from day one, the great lapse of our forefathers in structuring properly the Judicial branch still plagues us to this day). The failure of the successful prosecution of the much simpler case of Fast and Furious exemplifies the Constitutional limitations of Congress. I wish it could be otherwise, but sadly, it isn’t.

    PD. The Constitutional limitation that has in place one of the oddest structural concepts of any government in an advanced country is so obvious that nobody dares to talk about it.

      1. You have to understand that you are the only one that notices or recognizes a leading question or statement, i.e., a tease. You are probably the only one that knows the answer to it before given to you.

        It is no fun to tease vegetables on blinders.

  3. I agree, COF. The reason for the cover-up has little to do with attack itself but WHY the attack occured in the first place. Those are the questions the Obama administration wants to avoid.
    But through all of this I keep asking myself how stupid this administration must be to believe that they could make up a story and share with the world and think that the truth wouldn’t begin dribbling out. Unless of course, they have played that game before and won.
    But the average American doesn’t care. Thank God there are still a few of us that are not average Americans.

  4. You are right… the committees are looking for a Watergate-like coverup as the prime focus of their investigations.

    That is important and related, but what is most important is who made what decisions and when… BEFORE the attack that led up to the unnecesary and easily predictable loss of American lives.

  5. If I were to hazard a guess, it was a ops operation that went wrong. We have heard nothing from the around thirty who were rescued and gotten out and sent to Germany. Several badly injured. Let’s have them appear and let’s hear what they were up to. By the way, why did stevens die and so many rescued?

  6. Al-Qaeda is decimated and Bin Laden is dead.That was the Obama election narrative thus the Benghazi cover-up to protect it.Don’t buy it for a minute.The Obama base couldn’t care less.I see no evidence at all that the middle or crossover votes put Obama back in office because of his foreign policy achievements.The Jewish vote illustrates the contrary.

    Obama could have acted to save those 4 Americans,came out immediately afterward and declared it Al-Qaeda and that we must continue our vigilance against terrorism and he wouldn’t have lost a single vote.

    They’ll never impeach or convict him over spin.Yet here we are after a lost election still trying to corner him on an election issue.I say we appoint COF as special prosecutor so we can get to the bottom of this.

  7. I couldn’t agree more Jim, the media and the Congress are focused on Susan Rice and Barack Obama couldn’t be happier because the real scandal occurred before the attack ever happened. It appears as if the Obama regime was running guns captured in Libya through Turkey and into Syria and nobody is focused on this issue. It is frustrating as hell to see Obama getting away with this! THis should have ended his reelection bid but the media isn’t interested in getting to the truth.

  8. I’ll be as surprised as anyone if we ever learn the truth about what happened in Benghazi, before, during, or after. This is a prime example of how the Obama administration has failed in their promise to be the most transparent administration ever.
