Is trying to connect the dots on the “what and why” of the tragic deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, including our Ambassador to Libya, make one a “conspiracy theorist”? Maybe and maybe not. The President has said that the so-called Benghazi scandal is a phony scandal. Really? As someone on the internet said in response: “if there is no scandal, why the cover-up?” There is a cover-up going on. That much should be clear to anyone paying attention to the Benghazi story and don’t think it’s necessary today to rehash all of the things that have been covered in the Congressional hearings. What hasn’t been covered in the Congressional hearings is, in my opinion, what the cover-up is all about. What was the CIA mission in Benghazi? Why were there so many CIA agents in Benghazi? Why have the thirty or so survivors been muzzled and kept away from the press?
When the self advertised “most transparent administration ever” turns out to be the most opaque administration ever, of course people left to speculate and conspiracy theories are born. This Canada Free Press article discusses the two most prevalent theories. The call one the State Department Theory and the other the CIA Theory.
The State Department Theory sees the attack from the point of view of the globalist conflict between Russia and the USA with its British and Saudi allies. Russia sent a warning by killing ambassador Stevens. This is an attractive theory and will rise or fall once we know more about the arms dealing going on at Benghazi. If the CIA was involved in channeling arms to Syrian rebels, then Russia and its cronies who support Assad may have attacked the compound to stop that arms transfer. _ (Bold added)
The CIA Theory supposes more was going on at Benghazi besides an arms transfer. We know there were at least 30 CIA agents at Benghazi. They could have easily fended off a Russian backed attack. The men at Benghazi were allegedly told, however, to stand down. Something else was going on.
A foiled kidnapping plot of our ambassador is a possibility. This article will explore the CIA Theory and argue it is not beyond the CIA, on orders from the administration, to attempt something like a kidnapping. Spooks like to do spooky things. _ (Bold added)
The article notes that : “One of the secrets many have wondered about that pertains to both theories is an alleged stand down order. This order prevented aide from reaching those fighting off the attack.”
There may be some merit in both of these theories. And, your humble observer here at Asylum Watch has some other dots that he would like to see if they deserve to be connected and I need some technical help to do so. I’m hoping one of you, dear readers can help or you know someone who can.
In the interest of full disclosure, the dots I want to try to connect were not uncovered by yours truly, but by a very good friend. We met through the internet and we have had some long and interesting off-line discussion on a variety of subjects. One of those subjects has been Benghazi. Trust me when I say that my friend is very smart. He is also a tenacious internet investigator. I recently refered to him as Super Sleuth and so I will call him SS for the purposes of this post. SS has turned up what I believe to be three very interesting dots related to the Benghazi scandal that I have not seen discussed anywhere in the blogosphere. Let’s take them one at a time and then I will explain the kind of help I hope one or more of you can render.
Obama’s phone call to Netanyahu
In the days that followed the news of the attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya many people were asking :” Where was President Obama while all the live feed was coming in about the attack, because it seemed as though he went to bed early and then flew off to campaign in Las Vegas the next morning. What didn’t occur to me but did to my friend, SS, was to use his computer to find out what the White House Press Office had to say about the President’s activities. SS was intrigued to learn that shortly after being briefed about the Benghazi attack by Panetta and Dempsey, he and Vice President Biden placed a call to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (aka, Bibi). The call lasted an hour. According to the WH Press Office, Obama and Bibi discussed the Iran nuclear threat. That may be true. The UN General Assembly meeting was coming up in a couple of weeks and the President and Netanyahu would be seeing each other. SS and I had some off-line discussions about this call, which seemed very curious to us considering the timing of the call. The call took place between 12:30 am and 1:30 am Israeli time. To us that seemed a strange time for the President, who had just been informed that the diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack and that the Ambassador could not be reached and no one knew if the Ambassador was dead or alive, would place a call to another Head of State at such an hour to discuss something that was not an urgent matter. It made more sense to SS and I that Obama had received a message saying that Bibi wanted to talk re: Benghazi. We speculated Mossad had learned about whatever the President has been trying cover-up about what his State Department and the CIA were doing in Benghazi. The idea of a planned and coordinated kidnapping of Ambassador Stevens came up in our discussion. We also talked about the possibility that the CIA was collecting arms from the Libyan militia groups and sending them to Syria and maybe Iran”s (ally of Russia) Red Guard were involved in the attack. In other words, we were speculating.
Very few bullet holes in the Mission’s walls.
I think it was about six months ago, I received an email from SS. He had come across an English language article on Benghazi published in Libya. The reporter was a freelance journalist from the UK. The journalist reported gone to the Mission and was surprised that there were so few bullet holes in the walls of the different structures. This led SS and I to think that maybe there is merit to the speculation that the terrorist weren’t there to kill the Ambassador but to try to capture him by smoking him out and maybe it was Tyrone Woods deciding to disobey the order to stand down that screwed up the kidnapping plan.
Photo of Biden holding notes on the phone call to Bibi
Yesterday, my tenacious friend, SS, sent me an email with this link to an official White House photo taken just after the phone call to Netanyahu ended. Please click on that link and you will see that V.P Biden is holding some papers in his hand. If you magnify your screen, you can see the references to “Bibi” several times. However, that part of the photo has been intentionally blurred for obvious reasons. This is where SS and I are hoping someone reading this post can help us out.
Do any of you or someone you know have the ability to enhance the part of the photo where the notes of the Obama/Bibi phone conversation is located. If you can do it your self please let me know by e-mail: picaypalo!yahoo.com or send how we can contact someone with these skills.
The notes are folded so we don’t expect to get much. But, it sure would be interesting and useful if the words “Benghazi” or “Ambassador Stevens” appear in the notes. Who knows what else of interest might show up. You could be helping America to get one step closer to knowing the truth about what is really behind the Benghazi scandal.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
