Walking Al Quida in Benghazi - Why Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans died.

WALKING AL QUIDA IN BENGHAZI
WHY AMBASSADOR STEVENS AND THREE OTHER AMERICANS DIED

(Update october 24, 2012)

As horrible as it may be to contemplate, is it possible that the gruesome death of our Ambassador in Benghazi was acutally a part of a Al Quida Gun Running scheme gone horribly awry?

I believe that somehow it could be something along those line, because of all the unanswered questions there, the unbelievably chaotic and rushed manner in which the Obama administration tried to cover it up...and continued to cover it up well past all rational thinking would indicate that they were doing so...and because of common sense questions, questions like:

  1. Why were additional security requests for Benghazi denied after two recent attacks, one by an IED in June that blew a large whole in the wall?
  2. Why was the DOD Site Security Team (SST), funded by the Defense Department, and there to counter precisely this type of attak, removed from Libya in August, just a few weeks before the attack?
  3. Why was a U.S. Ambassador who had indicated he feared for his life and was seeking more security, sent to Benghazi, the hotbed for anti-Americanism, on the 11th Anniversyary of 911 (and the 11th anniversary of any event in Islam is considered "Holy") with no dedicated US security team?
  4. Why did numerous command centers watch the attack on Benghazi unfold for over SIX HOURS and not mount a large relief effort, or particularly immeidate support from potential US Navy vessels in the Med? or US Bases in Ityly? Navy F-18s can fly a long way and cover a lot of miles traveling at Mach 1.
  5. What was the relationship of Ambassador Stevens to the 17th of February Martyrs Brigade in Benghazi, the Al Quida leaders in Benghazi, and the already gun running operations coming out of Beghazi where Al Quida operatives there were arming their Al Quida sympathizer rebels in Syria?
  6. Why was the 17th of February Martyrs Brigade in Benghazi, an Al Quida affiliated, Sharia Law devoted, militia group tasked with providing any US security in Benghazi?
  7. Finally, what was the Turkish Ambassador or consulate meeting with Ambassador Stevens about just an hour before the attack. Turkey has vested interests in seeing Assad brough down in Syria and arming the rebels.
Could it be (either through Libyan government sources, or even our own) that the terrorists knew that the security had been taken away in Benghazi? Could they have decided that negotiations about running arms to Syria with US help were not going as they desired and so hoped to kidnap the Ambassador in an easy smash and grab operation against an essentially undefended compound and then try and negotiate a trade; Stevens for the blind Shiek? Or Stevens for better gun running help? A kidnnapping motive has aleady been rumored in Benghazi and elsewhere in Livya in the wake of the attack.

Could it be that Gun Running negotiations went bad and that some kind of an "October Surprize" was "supposed" to happen in Benghazi? After the kidnapping we would have seen an outraged Obama, stoked up and rightously indignant over this, on National TV claiming it would not be tolerated and that we would secure the release of Stevens. He would maybe even have "suspended his campaign to deal with it...for all Americans to see.

Then October would have been full of "that" story, and you can bet it would invariably have led to a Stevens release just before the election.

But even without a kidnapping, the gun running through Al Quida which appears almost certian now due to email releases, journalist reports, and the direct ties between the US and the Al Quida leaders who helped bring down Quadaffi which have already been made, would be far more than enough reason for the Obama administration to desperately cover up what went on there.



HERE'S WHAT WE KNOW OF THE ATTACK ITSELF:
Late that September 11th evening in Benghazi, at 9:40 PM, heavily armed and well organized attackers rushed into the compound and hour after the Turkish diplomat endfed his meeting with Ambassador Stevens, waving the radcial Islam flag. The American communications specialist saw it, yelling, "Attack, attack, attack," into the compund microphone and activating the Eminent Danger Notification system which turned the videos over to satellites feeds so the other command centers around the world, including in Tripoli, the State Department, the White House and others, could see it in real time. At no time on the videos, or according to the live reports from the communications building, or later testimony, was there any "demonstration," or "spontaneous protest" that somehow turned into an attck. This was a dedicated and well coordinated attack from the beginning. At the time, when scores of attackers streamed onto the consulate grounds, there were only seven Americans at the consulate. Four security officers, one communications specialist, the Ambassador and one state department specialist.

A brave security officer, Agent David Uben, in the main consulate building ushered Ambassador Stevens and the State Department specialist, Sean Smith into the safe room which was protected by thick concrete walls, a very massive steel security gate, and a bending hallway back to a room where the three could "hunker down." BTW, Sean Smith sent PMs to a group he gamed with on the internet just a few hours before indicating that he believed he might not survive the night. Indicating that the Libyan Police Guards (from the Feb 17th Brigade) were "suspect".

As it was, the attackers tried to open the locked metal door and could not get into the safe room and it is clear that the three who were hiding there kept quiet and that the attackers did not know they were even there... so the attackers burned the building with diesel fuel as they left. If they had known would they have tried to get Steven's out, waiting for more heavy equipment to open that door? We do nt know.

The four other personnel could not get to the Ambassador in the main building because there were sinmply too many attackers and so they barracaded themselves into two other consulate buildings, now armed with automatic weapons, kevlar vests and full battle gear. Back in the main consulate residence, Uben pried one of the barred windows open enough to get out so they could escape the deadly smoke. When he went out, Stevens and Smith, for some reason, did not follow. Uben went back in to try and find them but could not and was driven out by the thick smoke. He tried again, but could not locate them. He was able to join up with the other four individuals and they were later reinforced by a six more Americans and sixteen Libyan personnel from the American "Annex" quick reaction force, a mile away. At that point, many of the attackers had left. The Americans went back to the main building to try and find the Ambassador but only found the body of Sean Smith, which the retrieved and took with them. At that point they came under heavy attack again and had to retreat, under fire from assault weapons and grenades, in an armored vehicle back to the Annex. They came under automatic weapons fire and grenade attack several times on their way, but made it back to the Annex before 11 PM, their vehicle riddled and barely running. But the fight was far from over.

At the Annex two former Navy SEALS, Glen Dorrity and Tyrone Woods were working with a total now of tweleve Americans and eighteen Libyan security personnel to defend it. It soon came under very heavy and sustained attack by mortars, grenades and automatic weapons fire from a larger group. During this attack Dorrity and Woods were killed and David Uben, the security officer who had been with Ambassador Stevens and Shawn Smith, was wounded severely. Finally, in the early hours of the morning, a reinforcement group, a Mobile Security Team (MSD), arrived at the airport in Benghazi from Tripoli, and they came to the Annex. Around this time, a Predator Drone had been launched from somewhere (unclear as to where yet) and was also providing video overhead coverage of the fighting. Altogether they were able to hold off the repeated attacks. This entoire group held off another attack on the Annex. Afterwards, they decided that even larger and more sustained attacks were possible at any time and so they determined to abandon Benghazi and after destroying as much sensitive material as they could, they all left for the airport.

Sometime during this time frame, emails to the Whie House form US Intelligence sources indicate that an Al Quida group, Aansar Al-Sharia, took responsibility for the attack and announced it on their web site. Nnothing of any video was mentioned...nor has it been by our enemies, before or since, regarding this attack.

In the mean time some time after midnight, other Libyans, entered the now abandoned consulate grounds and the main building. They supposedly found the body of Ambassador Stevens in the main building. Reports conflict as to whether he was dead, or barely alive at the time. The pictures of him being dragged and carried through the streets are from this time frame. Ultimately he was taken to the Benghazi hospital some time after 1 AM where doctors tried to revive him...to no avail. He was pronoiunced dead at the hosptial in those very early morning hours. On the way out to the airport, the main group of retreating Americans had found out that Sterven's body was at the hospital, so they picked him up and the entire group, now having all four bodies, made their way to the Benghazi airport and flew back to Tripoli.

Thus Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith and the two former Navy SEALS, Dorrity and Woods, were killed in Benghazi. If a kidnapping had been planned, what might have been manipulated into a "great moment” for Obama in an arranged “tough” negotiation to “save” Ambassador Stevens (who himself would have had no clue about any of this and would never have gone along with it), turned into the death of the Ambassador instead. This may sound far fetched...but too many questions remain unanswered and the Obama administration has willfully misled the American people and sought to coverup the true nature of the events there. The gun running story has great merit and has been reported on to some length...except for the potential tie to Benghazi.


Several nights ago Fox News with Bret Baier interviewed the Lt. Colonel leader of the DOD Site Security Team (SST), Lt. Colonel Andrew Wood, who had been in Benghazi and who had alerted (along with the Regional Security Officer at the Embassy) the Defense Department and the State Department that the situation in Benghazi was untenable and required more secutiry. Their requests were not only turned down, the DOD Fast Response team of 16 special forces soldiers that Lt. Colonel Wood commanded was pulled out...just three or four weeks before the attack.

In that interview he detailed the dangerous situation and was asked why Ambassador Stevens would go to Benghazi under such circumsytances.

Lt. Colonel Andrew Wood replied that "he went anyway, because I think in his heart, the mission came first."


DEATH AND DECEIT IN BENGHAZI BY FOX NEWS WITH BRET BAIER - PART 1

What was Steven's mission? Having himself asked for more security and indicating that his life was in danger...and having his own requests turned down, what Mission was so important that he would got to Benghazi anyway as the personnel representative of the President of the United States? (Which is what our Ambassadors are). Could it be he was involved with these very tense and difficult negotiations to arm the rebels in Syria? The families of the dead need to know. We need to know. All American citizens deserve to know.

Precisely because this was so horrible for these brave Americans. Presiely because this was so bad for America. Precisely because these questions remain unanswered. Presicely because numerous operations centers saw this in real time for over six hours and no major help was attempted from US forces at Sea or in Italy. Presicely because of the umitigated lies, deceptions, and now cover-up of this administration...this entire affair should actually be absolutely front page news in the whole country until it is resolved, campaigns or not. Luckily, the Majority GOP in the U.S. House of Representatives is already conducting a thorough investigation.

We have American blood on the ground. This was the first successful Al Quida organized terror attack on American soil that killed Americans since 911 2001, and we potentially have those amongst us who at the very least are covering it up for political purposes because it does not fit their narrative...or who, at the worst, may have helped to arrange it in an effort to create a new political narrative just before the election.

Knowing all of this, watch the following three videos. The first from FoxNews documents the gun running operation that is using Al Quida operatives to run guns to Al Quida rebels in in Syria. The second is of testimony exchange between the bureaucrats in Washington DC and the lead Security Officers on the ground in Libya. It is simply amazing...and shameful. The lead security officer in all of Libya for the US Government sums it up be saying, when referring to his Washingto DC support managers whom he had to ask for additional security that he felt like, "The Taliban is in the building,"...meaning within the US government. The third is of Glenn Beck on the Blaze connecting and documenting the dots regarding Benghqazi and the gun running operations emminating from Libya.

Wherever that trail may lead.

Of all places Anderson Cooper on CNN had info on last night contradicting the administration story.

The Facebook post by the group wasn’t just taking “credit”; the Facebook post contained details of the actual attack. So Hillary this week lied staring a group claiming credit wasn’t evidence. The group face details as well.

The foxes were guarding the ‘hen house’.

What type and number of armlament were we providing the Muslim Brotherhood , Al Quaeda , or its surrogates ?
Did we expect to see these weapons show up in Syria rebel hands ?
How many missles did we provide ?

Possibly worse: Is it possible that the gruesome death of our Ambassador (and three others) were premeditated arranged murders to cover up the trail of a massive scheme running weapons to muslim terrorist groups?

Certainly looks like it.

The biggest stench is that it is beginning to look like Obama went night-night to rest up for Las Vegas, instead of seeing the crisis through and (had he been awake) sending a rescue mission.

After 6-8 hours in a few “Fort Apaches” with running street battles between, like a mini Blackhawk Down, the living Americans must have been thinking, “Any minute now, here come the helicopters.”

But they didn’t. So even though Delta had forward staged to Sigonella Sicily (rumint) from base in Germany, nobody was willing or able to pull the trigger and send a rescue force. Or even a few F-18 supersonic flybys, to bust windows and warn, “Here comes American airpower, and you camel jockeys know what that means.” Just a a morale booster it would have helped the besieged staffers.

But it was never sent, not even a lousy supersonic low-level flyby.

Here is the deal, Jeff. The military can do a lot on its own, the minute they see that the consulate (so called) is under attack, and the ambassador and others are in a safe room. At that moment, things happen on autopilot in real time. Everybody in the Navy adn USAF chain of command swings into a crisis contingency plan mode. What ships are closest? Helicopters? Marines? Delta is in Germany? Get them moving right now. Where is closest? Sigonella, for now. It’s NATO, no permission needed, just fly. En route in C-17s, the Delta guys would even be prepping for an immediate action raid, that is, the C-17 will fly directly to some desert road outside of Benghazi, and here comes “The Raid On Entebbe,” crisis mode, canned actions, but they would do it. If they were ordered to.

Or Marines on amphib ships in the central Med, if any were available, would also be put on the real-time options board.

But while all of that military staging would have happened/did happen, what they cannot do on their own say-so is cross an international border without permission of the “Libyan Govt.”

To act unilaterally would have meant the false peace and so-called govt we were propping up didn’t really exist. Libyan sovereignty must be held sacrosanct, even the false image of one, where in reality, Al Queda is top dog.

Anyway, no General or Admiral will order the Marines ashore or Delta or even an F-18 low-level supersonic flyby.

Nada. Zip. Because the POTUS retired for the night with a “do not disturb” sign, punted, and went to bed, to be well rested for Las Vegas.

While his ambassador was he knew not where, at that moment being dragged or even raped. But Obama went to bed.

That is the greatest scandal of Benghazi. The POTUS slept through it, while all around the world, military forces were poised for the Raid on Entebbe or any other damn thing the POTUS ordered them to do. (And the were raring to go, believe me.)

But the POTUS said, “We’ll discuss it further in the morning,” and went to bed around midnight in DC, 6 am in Benghazi, with a missing ambassador.

He went to bed.

God help us.

That’s the big secret they are keeping. The President went to bed, with his lost Ambassador being dragged through streets.

Could [the jihadists] have decided that negotiations about running arms to Syria with US help were not going as they desired and so hoped to kidnap the Ambassador in an easy smash and grab operation against an essentially undefended compound and then try and negotiate a trade; Stevens for the blind Shiek? Or Stevens for better gun running help? A kidnnapping motive has aleady been rumored in Benghazi and elsewhere in Livya in the wake of the attack.

I don't doubt that. I don't doubt any Obama-Islamist scheme or any Obama-by-himself scheme.

But even without a kidnapping, the gun running through Al Quida which appears almost certian now due to email releases, journalist reports, and the direct ties between the US and the Al Quida leaders who helped bring down Quadaffi which have already been made, would be far more than enough reason for the Obama administration to desperately cover up what went on there.

Maybe it was just old fashion Cold War stuff.

Who benefits from stopping an Al Qaeda-linked weapons supply line (that was never supposed to become public) -- whether or not Stevens was supplying the weapons or just tracking them?

Maybe it was simply a scorpion and the frog thing. Killing Americans was worth risking that part of the weapons pipeline.

Well I wonder did Assad ally Vladimir Putin arrange the attack? Did he manage to use Ansar al-Shariah or simply blame them?

In that case Benghazi is way beyond Watergate or Iraqi WMD.. think USS Scorpion one of our atomic submarines.

When the Soviets destroyed our USS Scorpion and all 99 men aboard both LBJ and Nixon covered up the attack (1968 and beyond). There will never be any truth from Washington no matter who is president if it was Putin.

For weeks now I have thought that the denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. I consider the lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack to be fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. I don't consider the inaction during the attack to be any of those.

The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.

ONE man had the authority to act that night.

ONE man deserted his post!

The last few days all I hear is did Hillary ask the Lybian government for permission to enter their air space or did she not? Pray, tell me, did the Israeli government get permission from the Ugandan before the raid in Entebbe?

Is it outside of the realm of possibility that 0 is an alQueda operative doing his job? Actions speak louder than words... I don’t trust this guy. If elected, can Romney move into office immediately if 0’s legitimacy is proven false (I assume Biden’s VP is invalidated?), and do what needs to be done to regain control of our government and military (from Islamic infiltration; the MB and such)?

That very well may be or it could be a deliberate "do nothing" scenario to eliminate the ambassador or "let" him be kidnapped. What I am having difficulty understanding is the end game.

The obama regime is overthrowing "moderate" dictators and setting in power sunni islamists. When possibly democratic people tried to revolt in Iran obozo voted "present" and looked the other way as they were slaughtered by there shia masters.

A showdown coming in syria between alawite/ shia coalition against the sunni/islamist/al-queda dragging Israel in and the other sunnis picking up the pieces and restoring the "caliphate" to it's "rightful" role as ruler of the ME?

Or a war before the election between Israel and Iran with the sunnis cleaning up?

Great post, Jeff!

Please allow me to add to the story line:

I read a most interesting email the other day which claimed that the Benghazi attack was the “October Surprise” gone bad.

The Ambassador was supposed to be kidnapped by Lybian thugs, according to the “White House insider” who leaked the info, and then Obongo Bozo was going to mount a rescue operation which would secure the Ambassador’s FReedom and ensure Obongo’s re-election.

Things went terribly awry (can you believe that the embassy “safe room” did not have any OBAs (oxygen breathing apparatus?), the Ambassador died, and thus, a coverup became necessary.

Given the machinations of the Obongo Bozo regime, this is a plausible scenario, IMHO.

I hope Hitlery releases the documentation proving Obongo Bozo denied additional bodyguards. If she has the cojones to deny Obongo another term in office, she will be a genuine American hero.

One has to wonder what the “October Surprise” Plan B is?

Hopefully, there is not time to mount another operation of that nature between now and Nov. 6.

A dem he has in frequently , Goodpasture or something like that... made a ridiculous statement that there was something more serious going on with voteer registration fraudulent activity going on in Florida and Virginia by some company....I kind you not!

They were alerted to the attack within the first hour. How would they know how long the attack would last? How would they know whether the personnel there could hang on or not? Are they still waiting for that FBI investigation before they think about a rescue mission?

If I call the Sheriff's office here and tell them someone is trying to break in I don't think they would tell me "we can't send anyone because it will probably all be over by the time we get there."

That’s the big secret they are keeping. The President went to bed, with his lost Ambassador being dragged through streets.

He went to bed -- so he could be fresh the next day for his little jouncy-jog thing down the stairs of Air Force One, his little A-Gay frisky-jog that tells everyone how energetic, how vigorous, how young and fresh he is.

Great God.

Yep.

Thread of interest:

Panetta: US lacked early info on Benghazi attack

********************************EXCERPT************************************

In his most extensive comments to date on the unfolding controversy surrounding the attack in Benghazi, Panetta said U.S. forces were on heightened alert because of the anniversary of 9/11 and prepared to respond. But, he said, the attack happened over a few hours and was over before the U.S. had the chance to know what was really happening.

They were on the phone with someone in the consulate who was describing exactly what was going on.

I would say that they thought it was over after the first attack on the major complex. The length was about an hour,.

Then there was quite an interval before the attack with mortars was launched on the annex.

But Leon said "over a few hours."

Back to the Sheriff's office analogy. I put down the phone to go protect my front door being breached, over the phone they hear fighting and gun shots. Then it goes quiet for a while. So the Sheriff tells his deputies "we might have to drive out there tomorrow and see what happened. After my lunch with the mayor."

When dealing with Leon Panetta, it needs to be borne in mind that Relevant Facts No. 1 through 11 are the same fact:

Leon Panetta is a veteran political hack and Democrat errand boy and henchman.

Take another look, with Kremlinological eyes, at that Situation Room photo.

Barky looks sour, dour, and greatly displeased. Pissed, even.

All the Establishment players are there: SecDef, Beastie, Joe Biteme, other NSA people.

So who isn't there? Who's a significant White House player who is Not There?

Try .... Axelgrease. Not there. David Plouffe? Don't see him, either. No Valerie Jarrett, either. No Janet Napolitano. No Dr. Susan Rice. All MIA.

Whaddayaknow -- the Administration's American members had to pull a coup d'etat in the White House to kill Bin Laden. And they did it. And Barky is just livid.

Anyone supporting these scumbags should truly be ashamed to call themselves Democrats.

That's not all they should be ashamed of. How can they even call themselves Americans? I am sick to my stomach.

We didn't exactly provide them.

How US Ambassador Chris Stevens May Have Been Linked To Jihadist Rebels In Syria

Those heavy weapons are most likely from Muammar Gaddafi's stock of about 20,000 portable heat-seeking missiles—the bulk of them SA-7s—that the Libyan leader obtained from the former Eastern bloc.

0bama-NATO just provided the air cover for the jihadis to loot them.

I inserted the following into the detailed narratvie and timeline I already have in this article on my site, due to the revelations we have heard today:
Let me interject here and say something about this situation. It is a wretched, shameful situation. The Mobile Security Team at the Annex, one mile from the Consulate, knew tha attack was ongoing from the moment it started when the Eminent Danger Notification System was activated. They begged their superiors from the start to relieve the Consulate. But they were ordered to stand down. This happened three times, and at some point the two Navy SEALS working for the State Department at the Annex, Glen Dorrity and Tyrone Woods, became involved and argued strenuoulsy to be allowed to organize efforts to help the consulate. With their skills, and with the MST which was created and trained for precisely these types of situations, they were uniquely qualified to do so. After the third denial, Woods and Dorrity determined that the orders had to be disobeyed and organized a group to go to the consulate to their relief. This was the force just spoken of that came to the relief of the consulate and extracted the survivors, although too late to hel Sean Smith and Ambassador Stevens.
This is probably the most dispicable, shameful event in US foreign policy in the last 100 years at least...and surely in my life time.

The truth is coming out, and it needs to take down those who were involved in this...and not just out of office. They need to be breaking large rocks into smaller rocks behind bars for the rest of their life...at the best.

Walking Al Quida in Benghazi - Why Ambassador Stevens, two Navy SEALS and Sean Smith died there

Good work Jeff. (As always)

Because of your background work and writing and frankly, because while scrolling just now I spotted your post, I have a question.

The photo above marks the arrival of the four coffins of those that died in the Benghazi Consulate/Annex assault. Notice that the Honor Guard Pall Bearers are all US Marines, while the color guard represents all the services.

Glen Dorrity and Tyrone Woods were both former US Navy SEALS, Sean Smith IIRC was former US Air Force. Ambassador Stevens as far as I know had no armed services background.

So my question is this. Isn't the usual protocol to have members of the fallen's service to act as the Honor Guard?

There's the dark imp of my mind that suggests the all Marine composition is political theater, yet Mr. Woods statements today suggest that this may be so and not just imagining.
