Geraldo Rivera: My Sources Tell Me Benghazi Was About Running Missiles To Syria Rebels
The Blaze ^ | 5/10/2013 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 05/10/2013 9:27:35 AM PDT by ConservativeMan55

Geraldo Rivera said Friday that his sources tell him the U.S. was involved in a secret mission in Libya to arm the Syrian rebels, which was the reason for the initial secrecy about the attack in Benghazi.

Even a blind hen will find a grain now and then.
Have any of the whistle blowers mentioned this yet?
As far as MSM is concerned FR does/must not exist. Maybe it will take someone like Geraldo to ask this question in public.

After reading the article, he’s likening it to Iran-Contra. In other words, Reagan did it, too, so what’s the big deal?

He should sign up at FR and post. He could use a phony name, something like “Geraldo Rivera.”

What's Rivera's motive here?? Hmmmmm.. Well, it's to provide cover for 0bama. King O needs a reason to have LIED to the American people and Rivera's assertion attempts to justify the lie. 0bama, Hillary, Rice and Carney all lied for national security reasons. B.S.

This does NOT explain why the Commander-In-Chief failed to request clearance to send in fighter jets, or the orders to refrain from saving Americans in distress. And how does NOT immediately saying we suffered a terrorist attack relate to the mission that was going on there? It doesn't. How is 'a YouTube video' cover for sending missiles to Syrian rebels? It isn't.

Nice try but no cigar, Geraldo. Check's in the mail anyway though I suppose.

See my post #28.

Geraldo has an agenda by doing this. It's to provide cover for 0bama. Read between the lines.

Yup.

I, you and every rational person has been saying it.

Why the BIG cover-up? Why lie so much and so forcefully ?

Answer is NOT what Rush Limbaugh is saying, that Obama was embarrassed it was a terrorist attack when Obama was bragging he has Al-Qaeda on the run.

THAT doesn`t make sense, to stick your neck out that far to keep from being embarrassed.

The REAL reason Obama and Hillary are lying and telling others to lie is the weapons/gun-running operation sending weapons from Libya, possibly thru 3rd parties/countries or more, to TERRORIST groups inside Syria.

THAT IS TREASON, providing aid and comfort. to the enemy.

THAT is the reason Obama and Hillary will LIE , INTIMIDATE, and FORCE others to LIE.

It will never happen. They have spent the past several months accusing Republicans and the conservative media of unfounded attacks and then lying about it with cover ups galore.

They’d have to admit that they were wrong.

“Good Grief people!! Quit hating on the messenger if he’s messaging some truth. What is the matter with some of you? You only want certain ones to report the truth? In-FReeoing-credible.”

You just don’t seem to get it. If the messenger is flawed enough, the message becomes secondary, and often is lost. It’s Alinsky 101, attack the messenger. So, having Whoraldo try to pimp some “insider information” is more harmful than helpful. Whoraldo is a demonstrable self promoter with only name recognition behind him. He’s not a journalist, he’s not honest, and he’s not a man of good character.

I’d like Whoraldo to enjoy a hot, full mug of STFU.

I think the point folks may be missing here, is that Whorealdo is saying this to give cover. “There was a reason for the cover-up.” Hence, no problem... So the bastard may be up to speed on this point, but he’s still lost in the tulies when it comes to the overall evil perpetrated by this administration and it’s flying monkeys in the killings of our staff in Benghazi.

Given that he's called FR "a hate site," I guess we should think that he's perused our fabulous forum at least once, right?

Dear Geraldo: it seems to me that Qadaffi kept those missiles under lock and key. For some reason, Hillary and Obama thought that they should help overthrow Qadaffi which resulted in all those missiles no longer being secure. Now, the real question is: Why would Hillary and Obama allow all those missiles to be taken out of secure facilities? They are either too stupid to be allowed to be in public, or they are thieves who did it for money. I don’t think they are very bright, but I think they did it for money. Maybe not an immediate payment, but money to be received at a later time.

Yup. That is the real story.

And the excuse that there weren't any resources in the area falls short.

How long does it take to fly some F16s from southern Europe or the ME? Three, four hours?

How long did the attack last? All day? I heard 8 hours from beginning to end!

There certainly appears to have been plenty of time.

I call BS.

They trusted the ‘third party’ to send the weapons to Syrian rebels, but instead they gave them to Al-qada.......

I think it’s about more than money.

I think Obama has a vested interest in arming the Syria Rebels (Al Queda) so they could overthrow Assad and take over his chemical weapons.

Those weapons would then be used against Israel. I think that’s what this is all about.
