Days after the tragic attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, the bodies of the four slain Americans were flown back to the US. Family members were told by President Obama, the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Defense Secretary Leon Panetta that they would let them know how their loved ones died.
A month later, Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith told a reporter that she felt betrayed and lied to by Obama, Clinton and Panetta. They promised to keep her informed, but she had not heard one word from any of them as what really happened to her son.
The last I knew, the families of the four victims still have not been told how they died or any of the specifics. There have been reports that Stevens supposedly died of smoke inhalation and asphyxiation, but there still has been nothing official to confirm that report. The deaths of the four American’s are still shrouded in mystery. It makes you wonder what the Obama administration is trying to hide.
To add fuel to the conspiracy fires surrounding what happened at Benghazi and how the four Americans died is a report from an al Qaeda weapons expert that claims that US Ambassador Christopher Stevens died from a lethal injection. Abdallah Dhu-al-Bajadin is a known al Qaeda terrorist who made the claim on the Ansar al-Mujahideen Network that the original plan was to abduct Stevens and use him as an exchange for high-level al Qaeda prisoners. When the raid went bad, Stevens was given the lethal injection.
If the lethal injection claim was not true, one would expect the government to quickly deny them. However, both the State Department and the FBI are not denying the claim. They are both aware of the statement, yet refuse to comment. Their refusal to comment only adds to the speculation as to what happened and it also seems to add some legitimacy to the terrorist’s assertion that Ambassador Stevens died from a lethal injection administered by the terrorists when their attempt to abduct him failed.
But what are the feds afraid of by telling the truth about what happened? Are they afraid that it will be revealed that they allowed the attack to happen when they could have prevented it or supplied better security? Will we learn that help could have been sent once word got out about the attack, but that someone, perhaps Obama, gave the order to stand down and let our ambassador be captured or murdered? Are the American people learning more truth about Benghazi from the terrorists that took part in the attack than from our own government? Who can and can’t we believe?
I’m not sure if we’ll ever find out what really happened that day in Benghazi. It’s obvious that our government has a lot to hide from the people about Benghazi. They screwed up, it cost valuable lives and now they are doing their best to cover their tracks and their butts.
