Turkish Ambassador Who Dined With Stevens On 9-11 Knew Of Benghazi Attack & Failed To Warn
According to Clare Lopez, a Retired operations officer with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), serving domestically and abroad for 20 years (full bio here) troubling reports have surfaced regarding the Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin, who dined with Ambassador Stevens on the evening of September 11th, 2012. Lopez follows a timeline for the Turkish Consul and compares it to timelines for the fatal events of that night. The Turkish Consul, Ali Sait Akin, dined with Stevens from 7:30-8:30pm according to October 9th State Department’s briefing report, and Steven’s walked the Consul out to the gate. That has the Turkish Consul driving away from the “mission Benghazi” around 8:35pm. At that point, the Turkish Consul would have surely seen the Jihadi’s setting up for attack, according to the AP:
“The neighbors all described the militants setting up checkpoints around the compound at about 8 p.m.” The checkpoints were described as being manned by bearded jihadis in pickup trucks mounted with heavy machine guns and bearing the logo of the Al-Qaeda terror franchise, Ansar al-Shariah.
That means that the Turkish Consul General would have had to pass out through the blockade as he departed the American compound and left the area. There is no record that he phoned a warning to his American colleague, the one he’d just had dinner with, Ambassador Stevens. Given the description of the blockade around the American compound and of the jihadis and their trucks that were manning it, it seems unlikely that the he somehow just failed to notice. “[N]o one could get out or in,” according to one neighbor interviewed by the AP.
“No one could get out or in?” Really? Seems nobody but the Turkish Consul, Ali Sait Akin.
What about the guards around the “mission Benghazi?” (I am calling it “mission Benghazi, because this was not a “Consulate” —and notice you won’t hear Obama or Clinton or anyone in the Regime call it one. Why? Because this was a “mission” and the whole thing is —what was the MISSION?) The “mission” was guarded by this Feb. 17th Brigade:
“February 17 Martyrs Brigade,” the jihadi militia subcontracted by the British firm Blue Mountain, which was the prime contractor for the U.S. Benghazi compound security contract. (emphasis mine)
These “guards” must have been aware, in the very least 5-10 minutes prior (if not all along) for they were guarding the perimeter. Yet, not until they burst through the gates, did any of our American personnel know. Which gives credence to Sean Smith, last report. And get this, this news comes from:
United Arab Emirate (UAE)’s Alaan TV, in which an intrepid young reporter shows viewers how she found pages of documents strewn about the U.S.’s Benghazi Tactical Operations Center (TOC) in the wake of the 11 September 2012 attack.
This “report” is from November 1st! Of course our FBI has been through the whole place--I guess they just “missed” these papers...both are dated September 11th, and they are from Sean Smith, from Lopez’s article (shocking video of News report):
One report was addressed to Mohamed Obedi, head of the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ office in Benghazi and the other to the “Benghazi Police Chief.” According to the Alaan report, the letters complained about an incident which had occurred outside the Benghazi compound where Sean Smith and the Ambassador would be killed later that night.
Describing the incident as “troubling,” the report states that at 6:30 that morning, one of the Libyan guards(likely a member of the “February 17 Martyrs Brigade” that had been hired to protect the facility) reported that he’d seen someone he identified as a member of the local police force in the upper level of a building across from the American compound photographing the interior of the compound.
Here’s the deal. WE the United States of America, were moving weapons from that CIA Annex to arm the Syrian Rebels. Those Rebels are linked to Al-Qaida and other jihadis. We know this. The route to which we transferred these weapons is through Turkey. Hence, we have this Turkish Consul at dinner with Stevens—this was “mission Benghazi”. As Clare Lopez notes:
There is no doubt but that the U.S. Department of State (DoS) would have received an official cable traffic from Sean Smith (probably signed off on by Ambassador Stevens) about the Libyan police surveillance activity as well as the Libyan failure to provide the security previously requested. Such traffic would have been marked with a high level of urgency
And the cover-up and lack of responding to our people there is due to this gun running, just as Brian Terry our hero from “Fast and Furious” will never receive justice, neither will our 4 American “heroes” who must have wondered “where are they, where is our back-up?” right before they died. Don’t count on Petraeus. I highly suspect he will toe the line of the Regime. I hope not, we could use a real LIVE American hero about now, General.
