Did Hillary Run Guns Out of Benghazi?
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | August 2, 2016 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 08/02/2016 3:13:56 PM PDT by Kaslin

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Julian Assange at WikiLeaks claims that there are a whole lot more emails coming. And he says that they are about Benghazi, but not so much what you think of when you hear Benghazi. Have any of you ever stopped to ask yourself, "What were we doing there?" I mean, okay, we had just wiped out Khadafy, and terrorism rose up in that country out of control. It was a hellhole. It was a dangerous place to be.

There was no reason to have to have a State Department annex anywhere near an embassy in Benghazi. There was no reason for it diplomatically, particularly in the aftermath of having ousted Khadafy, which Hillary Clinton to this day claims was a major foreign policy achievement. Well, you may have heard over the course of the recent past -- a few years or so -- that there was actually a gunrunning operation going on out of Benghazi.

Have you heard that? I have. I have heard it I don't know how many times in different ways, and the upshot of it is that we, the United States, were running weapons to the Syrian "rebels" -- ISIS -- that we were running weapons to Islamic jihadists in Syria, ostensibly supporting their position in the civil war. When you hear the rebels in Syria, the anti-Assadists and so forth, you're not supposed to think terrorists or ISIS, and that the ambassador Stevens was there to ensure the free flow of military armaments from the United States to Syria.

Well, now, with the apparent imminent release of more emails from WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, -- and he's intimidating that the emails he has back this up. We won't know until and after said email release actually happens. But a lot of people have put a lot of stock in these... I guess you call 'em "rumors" up to now about what we were doing in Benghazi, because of what did happen, because of the four Americans who died in Benghazi, because of the lackadaisical attitude of Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The depth of which we're not supposed to talk about now, and we're not supposed to have any sympathy for the parents of those people who died. Isn't that interesting? We're not supposed to even think about -- we're not supposed any sympathy whatsoever for -- Patricia Smith or any of the others whose family members perished there, because of government incompetence.

And there is MORE to think about:

Remember that one Syrian nerve gas attack and how the Obama Regime began shrieking that the perps were baaaaad Assad..? And it WASN’T..?

Well how many people think the local scummy US-backed rebels had the brains to whomp up their own brew of, say, Sarin..?

Remember how Khaddafi had chem weapons, and how at the time of his overthrow his arsenals were unguarded..?

See where I’m going..?

One of the authors of books on Benghazi said that the CIA had kidnapped the cousin of the person that Special forces were buying guns form. They thought the cousin was in the annex so they attacked to rescue him. Made for a good book.

Actually she ran guns out of Libya after she murdered Gaddafi, and then through Syria to ISIS.

Then she tried to buy them back in Benghazi through Ambassador Stevens. Remember the missing six billion bucks?

It doesn’t make that much sense to me, in a place where you could buy an assortment of modern weapons at the local bazaar, they go into a compound to get an Ambassador? I still think the weapon goal was a ruse as big as the You Tube video. They were after the Ambassador and it wasn’t spontaneous.

Since we just had to get involved with overthrowing Khadaffi, the Obama administration created a need to secure the 5000+ MANPADs they put in play. Buying up weapons and sending them to Syria is another thing entirely.

When Reagan paid Khaddafi back for Lockerbie by some coincidence he did hit Benghazi itself, in addition to various locations in and around Tripoli, obviously.

The now-chastened Khaddafi calmed down and knowing the full wrath of US airpower, went on a decades-long MANPADS buying binge.

The US operators were acquiring, appraising, servicing and TRANSFERRING lots of MANPADS, in addition to other gear.

155 mm howitzer shells are often the delivery system for CHEM WEAPONS:

Agents are often binary, separated into TWO parts which are innocuous as long as they're separate.

The shell is fired and as it spins they MIX, making it lethal.

There is NO evidence the named shells were chem, but those questions should be asked.

Let's take a look at the typical size of something that shoots the 155 mm, shall we..?

That is not the typical "every day carry" type weapon, can we agree..? Sometimes the gun is towed, meaning no truck is included, but you can still see that were the shells fired from a gun that a small TEAM would at least be required.

My guess is the rebels were interested in the shells ONLY for their interesting ingredients, which they intended to adapt for their own applications.

I think they were CHEM shells.

“They were after the Ambassador and it wasn’t spontaneous.”

I watched ‘the panel’ on Baier’s show one evening prior to 9/11/12. Every last man said the Blind Sheikh would be released by the end of the year that year.

After 9/11, that meme stopped. Hard.

Why did Hillary and Obama use American Taxpayer provided weapons, facilities, personnel and funds to overthrow the government of Libya and have Qadaffi killed?

They stole Qadaffi’s wealth. Them and their buddy Soros.

They used our military to help them steal.

Not a Photoshop, just cropped from a wider view.

Here is the original plus a few others from the same outing:

I’ve seen some of these pics before, but the picture in the upper left, when you get the front-on waddle, is the one you used. It’s the least complimentary—i.e., most fat-ass—of the bunch, by far.

“They were after the Ambassador and it wasn’t spontaneous.”

I think there is a high likelihood you are correct. Something doesn’t add up during the time he was unaccounted for. The Villa that Stevens, Smith, and agent Wickland holed up in was set on fire. Wickland became separated from Stevens and Smith. He went back into the burning building to look for them until smoke, heat, and exhaustion got the better of him, at which point he climbed up to the roof and collapsed, nearly unconscious.

By the time Tyrone Woods and Jack Silva reached the villa, they found DS Agents Wickland and Ubben standing in front of the villa covered in soot and exhausted. That’s when Woods and Silva made over a dozen trips into the burning building searching for Stevens and Smith as well.

At some point Ubben and one of the Tripoli DS Agents aquired gas masks. As Jack came back to the front of the building, he saw them coming out from the smoke dragging a body which turned out to be Smith. After determining there was nothing more they could do to revive him, they returned to the searchimg for Stevens. After many searches, it was finally decided that nobody could possibly be alive in the building and the decision was made for everybody to return to the annex.

What I don’t get, is how Stevens later turned up at the hospital, allegedly alive. There was that period of time when a nearly unconscious Wickland was on the roof, and Stevens and Smith were presumed to be still inside the building, and Tyrone and Jack had not yet arrived. When Tig arrived, nobody was on the front patio. He took up a position behind sand bags. He heard a bunch of crashing and a door being kicked in and assumed it was Tyrone and Jack inside moving furniture. Shortly after that a Land Cruiser came around a corner to the front of the villa. He almost shot until he recognized the face of Ubben through the windshield. Also in the vehicle was one of the Tripoli based agents.

What doesn’t add up is how an allegedly alive Stevens got to the hospital. How did Stevens make it out, but Smith allegedly didn’t? If there was going to be some kind of kidnapping/trade deal, what stopped it? From the time Wickland got seperated from Stevens and Smith, until Smith’s body was being retrieved from the building, something happened that if known, would most likely blow this whole thing wide open. I think the ‘official’ story is that after everybody left for the annex, the savages returned, and THEY somehow managed to find Stevens, who miraculously survived inside the burning villa.

A word of caution: something's not quite right with those "CLASSFIED" "stamps" on those truepundit.com documents.

All instances of the "CLASSFIED" "stamp" are identical -- indicating that those are COPY/PASTE duplicates of the same "imprint image" -- rather than actual , individual rubber stamp imprints.

To validate my eyeball assessment, I put copies of the different "stamps" on separate layers in "Canvas Draw" -- and applied varying degrees of misalignment:

In the top pair, you can see that the "dropout" dots" on the tops of the "Cs" and the "blivets" atop the "As" and the "jaggies" in the border above the "E" appear to be identical.

In the middle pair, I aligned the pair perfectly (pixel-to-pixel -- then shifted one image one pixel in X and Y -- and then subtracted one image from the other. Since any number subtracted from itself is zero (and zero in the RGB scheme is black) -- only the misalignment (where there IS a difference) shows up as anything but black.

The third pair are perfectly aligned and subtracted, leaving nothing but black -- proving that the "stamps" are, indeed, identical images.

~~~~~~~~~~~

That's a long way around to go about reminding us that not all online reports of "leaked" documents (no matter how attractively damning of HRC) can be completely, unequivocally trusted.

"Caveat emptor!"

It would also explain why Obama tried to minimize ISIS calling them “the JV team”.

What’s with this administration and running guns to terrorists in the ME, to drug cartels in Mexico, allowing shipments to be stolen and sold on the black market, etc? Reckless doesn’t begin to describe these policies.

I don't know -- but that raised my "skepticism level"! It's been 50 years since I handled TS/S-NoForn/Confidential documents, so I don't know what current ones look like.

Maybe they just "spiffed it up" a bit -- but that's isn't too smart when you are dealing with potential evidence of a crime...

OTOH, we know the left is big on forging documents to set us off on a wild goose chase (Rathergate, 0b0z0's many forged "birth certificates", etc...)

I'd just call this one a "heads-up call"! '-)

Maybe by Oct 31st the Mursi/Obama/Clinton = Rahman/Stevens trade connection will come out in the emails. If you ask me, there will be no names mentioned in them, if in fact, such emails exist. But the most careless woman on earth may have slipped up.
