Thanks, I tend to read a lot of articles on the region but i never annotate where they are , then i can’t find ‘em.
Yes, it likely was, and they’re Al Qaeda.
Your screen name will be audited by the IRS lowmen in Cleveland.
In that regard FR in general is subject to a mass audit...
You bring up a great point. Anyone in Foreign Service has to know after the Administration’s reaction in Benghazi (was to cover their hide first and foremost), that they (Foreign Service personel) are sacrificial lambs. What happened to the four Americans could happen to them. They are considered “bumps in the road” and EX-PEN-DA (duh!)-BLE.
Curious of the origin of the arms in the first place, and what part Nadhmi Auchi plays in this drama. I hear/read of illicit arms I think immediately of that SOB. He was involved with Obama, or at least was seen at a fundraising event according to an article I read a long time ago, and he also owns a bank he started up with funds from his illegal arms activities around the World, and he was Defense Minister for Saddam Hussein at one time. The guy is a jewel.
Last I read he was hold up behind thick walls with guards in the UK, and has one ‘H’ of a legal team keeping away the Wolves.
He found the incriminating documents in Al Capone’s vault.
Then the ambassador HAD to die. Dead men tell no tales.
uhhh, that’s right. cover up was all in the interests of national security. Nothing to see here... move along.
He is about 8 months behind FR.
At about 5pm eastern time in Washington, we’re told that Obama met separately with Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta telling each they needed to handle the attack in Benghazi.
Neither Hillary Clinton nor Panetta had the authority to order the military into action. And, conversely, neither could legally order the military to “stand down” during an attack on sovereign territory.
Obama’s whereabouts after 5 pm are undocumented. We are to believe Obama was having fish tacos and watching TV...while a terrorist attack was occurring on the 10 year anniversary of 9-11.
Part of being a Leader is Owning it. Barry is declared omnipresent but responsible for nothing.
Wasn't that sometime after "FReeper" Jerry Rivers got banned from FR in 2004 for trolling to suppress the vote for GWB?
LOL ... agreement with everyone here.

Not to mention current Armed Forces who would question Panettas comment of
“ we don’t send forces unless we know what we are dealing with”
Way to catch up Geraldo.

Major Sarc intended ..... Or on his prayer Rug
Yep. I ashamedly forgot to include our Troops. Those whom have made the ultimate sacrifice. How it must feel to have a Commander-in-Chief so unworthy?
how about on the phone with Mr. Soros
Shooting, um, hoops (?) with Reggie?
Any linkage between Benghazzi and Obozo has already been cleaned by Holder’s minions.
He’s just catching up!
That’s called “reporting from behind.”
Some of us have saying this before the American blood was clotted in Benghazi.
Also, the CIA, was apparently running a prison that would have made Abu Grab and Gitmo look like walks in a park.
Obozo’s and Clintoon’s rich liberal donors, who believe that Abu Grab and Gitmo are the worse things to ever happen, might reconsider donating more money to their liars, Obozo/Clintoon.
Even a blind squirrel (Geraldo) finds a nut once in awhile.
hah! I posted before reviewing the entire thread.
Your post is way better than mine!
Welcome to the friggin party, Jerry! Ya dolt.
The gun running may or may not have happened but in any event the story would have provided a cover for the attack on the embassy and the kidnapping of Stevens. With the Ambassador in terrorist hands, the release of RATman would have been a "fait accompli", and O would have made his bones with the Muslim Brotherhood (yet again!), the silent transfer of some "technical assets" would have been icing on the cake. A win/win either way.
Or, even the sun shines on a dogs ass once in a while.
If that is the case why lie about it..Obama has been saying for months he wants to arm the Syrian rebels..and what would arming the rebels have anything to do with Stevens and the other 3 brave Americans being killed..my thought from the beginning was that either this was a planned hit on Stevens so they can do a swap for the Blind Sheikh or it had to do with smuggling weapons from Turkey to Syria, like Fast and Furious but Middle Eastern style
Did Geraldo just recently learn to read? Or did he just recently learn to add 2+2?
” 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 hes still lost in the tulies when it comes to the overall evil perpetrated by this administration and its flying monkeys in the killings of our staff in Benghazi.”
Good thinking, D1.
You, IMO, are correct. Jerry is simply trying to make this into another Iran-Contra, thus absolving Obama of any treasonous motives.
In addition to arming the Cartles in Emxico, Obama ran guns through an Al Qeda area.
He must be arrested at once. He is Al Qeda
IMO, no mention in the hearings, because the truth is more sinister than gun-running, which is easily interpreted as a simple judgment call.
The truth may be known, but to bring it out in a single grand dish would be too hard for the public to take in. The public does not want to believe their leaders are capable of heinous crimes.
I do so believe, and don’t like the water torture approach, but it’s the only way to give people time to digest the entire meal. Or could be I’m just FOS.
Been there, done that.
Makes me wonder how many National Security Letters that JimRob has received, and the info turned over to the IRS.
And lest you think Jim wouldn’t do that, he would have no choice. And on top of that, he is prohibited from telling you that he even received the request.
Have never heard from the IRS re any member of FR. And will tell them to shove it if I ever do. Eff’em!! None of their damned business!!
Much speculation on Free Republic at the time about tracking MANPADS that had been given to the Libyan rebels.
That was the subject of articles from other sources and speculation by many.
I can imagine.
It wouldn’t be the IRS. It would be the the FBI or NSA, etc.
Of course, those agencies would never divulge that info to another agency. (Do I really need a sarcasm tag?)
Arming the MB. Great, like I always say, the brotherhood is where al-Qaeda goes to get legit. Obama sure loves his Islam..
“Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.”
What did he find, and when did he find it?
The jerry rivers that got a college pass for being an ethnic minority?
David Horowitz is about as close as you’ll come to that.
He really turned his viewpoint around, and I give him kudos for it.
Don-o, I used to think the way you do on this.
My problem is guys like McCain, who’ll toss you a bone once in a while, simply to make his treachery that much easier to accept later on.
The rational thinker will say to himself, yeah I know it’s hard to believe this, but remember McCain is pretty middle of the road. Why just the other day he said “fill in the blank”, so I think the guy is trustworthy.
Well..., no he isn’t. And that’s the problem with guys like him when they tell ‘some’ truth.
Thanks. Accidents happen...
