was Benghazi an arms deal gone bad?



Floated by Rush, was Benghazi a Fast and
Furious II (without the approval of congress) gone bad? Are is this just what the conspiratory theorist hate-filled loons might think?

Is Benghazi just a phony scandal or is there some fire somewhere under the transparent smoke that is the Obama regime?

I think the administration was aware of it going on and turned a blind eye to it.

Then it blew up in their face when shite hit the fan when things went south.

Pretty sure this was a Glenn Beck "wacko-bird" theory some time back, no?

Interesting...

CNN said 35 CIA agents were collecting surface to air missiles and shoulder held missiles for shooting down planes to give to Syrian rebels, who are also anti-American Muslims. Could a few find their way to Europe or America?

Based on a lot of reading on the subject, I could see Benghazi, Libya being an arms funneling hub to either Syrian rebels or to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, or both. I have never seen that directly stated by any source, but it is plausible.

I think that may be spot on

I also think that whatever was going on over there was being coordinated through John Brennan. I think Obama probably approved, in a broad sense, whatever he was doing but has little to no real knowledge of what was going on...and probably did not care until it damaged his re-election campaign.

Yes, and now CNN and Rush are starting to talk about it. Hmmm.

I remember an article on this just after Benghazi happened but it never got any traction...

I think you may want to re-check what that number 35 was in reference to in the CNN stories... it was the combined number of CIA EMPLOYEES, including contract personnel like Doherty and Woods, plus State Dept. personnel that were evacuated from Benghazi to Tripoli on two planes on the morning of Sept. 12, 2012.

All known information many, many months ago.

CNN had nothing new of substance in their reports. However, I'm very pleased they have finally "discovered" there's a major story regarding Benghazi - better late than never.

I just was wondering how the purpose of setting this up benefits America's interest.

ETA: meaning why set it up if it doesn't benefit us? Unless it's just a money grab by the CIA I guess.

I don't think it does. I don't think a lot of our foreign policy decisions do though.

CNN is reporting that government workers in the know are being shut up.

If it's a phony scandal about nothing, why do they need to be shut up?

Oh, I agree. How does it help us? No clue.

This is really tinfoil hat stuff, but John Brennan was accused earlier in the year by a disgraced former FBI agent (that investigated the William Jefferson ordeal and was also the FBIs lead guy on the Muslim Brotherhood) of being a converted Muslim.

When that news leaked, there were other rumors that this was long held to be true.

Heck, even in Zero Dark Thirty, wherein the directors and producers were given unprecedented access to files, there is a character purported by some to be Brennan called "The Wolf" that is on a prayer mat when introduced as a character in the CIA headquarters.

That doesn't answer your question because who knows if there is a logical answer.

There are some tinfoil hat type anecdotal explanations...like Brennan aided the MB that could be plausible, but are highly unlikely, I would assume.

Say what you want about Glenn Beck, but he was on this about a week after the attack

Arms to Syria is in play as part of the entire Benghazi story, but those arms were NOT meant for Al-Qaeda - that's where so many people are guessing wrong.

Benghazi is not A story. It is about FIVE stories all coming under one umbrella. There are loose threads there for the unraveling in every direction.

Benghazi was a "perfect storm" of related and unrelated events that transpired over a 12 day period in three countries. When it's all over , 15 -18 months from now, it will have surpassed Watergate in magnitude.
