As if we didn’t already realize it, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton lied to the American people and to the families of the four Americans killed in the attack on the US Consulate Compound at Benghazi.
Remember that right after the attack they tried to convince us that the attack was prompted by a little known and virtually unseen garage made anti-Islamic video. Once that lie was revealed, they tried to lay the blame for it on Susan Rice.
However, Obama and Clinton continued to deny any foreknowledge of the attack or any impending danger. That was proven to be a lie when correspondence from slain US Ambassador Christopher Stevens revealed that he had been warning of the danger and asking for more security measures for the compound. I recall Clinton at one point saying that she was unaware of Steven’s requests, although evidence showed otherwise.
Now, thanks to Judicial Watch, we have concrete proof that both the State Department and Defense Department knew about the Benghazi attack 10 days in advance. Using the Freedom of Information Act, they were able to obtain over 100 pages from the two departments that were classified as ‘secret’. According to Judicial Watch:
“A Defense Department document from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), dated September 12, 2012, the day after the Benghazi attack, details that the attack on the compound had been carefully planned by the BOCAR terrorist group ‘to kill as many Americans as possible.’ The document was sent to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Obama White House National Security Council. The heavily redacted Defense Department ‘information report’ says that the attack on the Benghazi facility ‘was planned and executed by The Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman (BCOAR).’ The group subscribes to ‘AQ ideologies:’”
“The attack was planned ten or more days prior on approximately 01 September 2012. The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for U.S. killing of Aboyahiye1 in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center buildings.”
“‘A violent radical,’ the DIA report says, is ‘the leader of BCOAR is Abdul Baset2, AZUZ was sent by3 to set up Al Qaeda (AQ) bases in Libya.’ The group’s headquarters was set up with the approval of a ‘member of the Muslim brother hood movement…where they have large caches of weapons. Some of these caches are disguised by feeding troughs for livestock. They have SA-7 and SA-23/4 MANPADS…they train almost every day focusing on religious lessons and scriptures including three lessons a day of jihadist ideology.’”
“The Defense Department reported the group maintained written documents, in ‘a small rectangular room, approximately 12 meters by 6 meters…that contain information on all of the AQ activity in Libya.’”
“(Azuz is again blamed for the Benghazi attack in an October 2012 DIA document.)”
“The DOD documents also contain the first official documentation that the Obama administration knew that weapons were being shipped from the Port of Benghazi to rebel troops in Syria. An October 2012 report confirms:”
“Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, and 125 mm and 155mm howitzers missiles.”
“During the immediate aftermath of, and following the uncertainty caused by, the downfall of the4 regime in October 2011 and up until early September of 2012, weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles located in Benghazi, Libya were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the ports of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The Syrian ports were chosen due to the small amount of cargo traffic transiting these two ports. The ships used to transport the weapons were medium-sized and able to hold 10 or less shipping containers of cargo.”
“The DIA document further details:”
“The weapons shipped from Syria during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s and 125mm and 155mm howitzers missiles. The numbers for each weapon were estimated to be: 500 Sniper rifles, 100 RPG launchers with 300 total rounds, and approximately 400 howitzers missiles [200 ea – 125mm and 200ea – 155 mm.]”
Obama and Clinton lied to everyone about Benghazi and knowingly left Ambassador Stevens and his staff under protected. They ignored Stevens requests for more security and they ignored their intelligence reports indicating that the attack was coming. In my book that makes Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton complicit to the murders of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Information Management Officer Sean Smith, Security Officers and former Navy SEALS Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. They need to be held accountable for their roles in the deaths of these four brave Americans.
Additionally, they lied to us about the danger of ISIS back in 2012 and they lied to us and covered up the fact that they were shipping arms to rebel forces in Syria.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton both need to spend the rest of their lives in an 8×6 jail cell for their crimes to the American people and the murders of the four Americans at Benghazi!
