Bill Clinton told Hillary To Resign, US Arming ‘Syrian Rebels’ With Ties To Al Queda

Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, came forward to “take responsibility overall” for the attacks  at Benghazi, but per Ed Klein we now know behind the scenes Bill Clinton advised his wife  to resign over the possible criminal fallout of the Benghazi massacre.  Today we learn from sources  that not only did Hillary ask for added security, and was denied, but her closest advisers strongly suggested she seek legal counsel just days after the attack.  Why?  Why did “they” deny Hillary’s requests for added security to Benghazi, and  why is this a situation in which a Secretary of State would need personal legal counsel?  Could the Benghazi fallout, go beyond what a Public Relations firm can handle?  I’d say YES.  Could this be a criminal act, negligence,  dereliction of duty, which resulted in murder?  I’d  say YES.  And I’d say that Hillary is telling the truth as the “source” of these latest developments come straight from her “legal counsel”.   Hillary did prior to September 11th, 2012 order added security for Benghazi, and those requests were denied—but by who?

To fully understand what happened in Benghazi, we need to step back.  Ambassador Stevens was located in a CIA safehouse (otherwise known as the building burned down during attack)–that  location is where on the night of the attack he dined with the Turkish General Counsel.  Why?  Why was Stevens meeting with this Turkish official? Apparently, in reports the US was gun running weapons through Turkey to aid the Syrian Rebels, but the real kicker here is that we handed over 400 tons in one shipment, to Al Queda and the Muslim Brotherhood, who are the leaders of these so called “Syrian Rebels”.  We can speculate what the Turkish General Counsel talked with Ambassador Stevens about that  night—but what is clear is that the Al Queda backed forces were on scene whilst the two men dined.

The ‘Libyan forces’ called the Feb. 17th Brigade, were the extra security which manned that CIA safe house.  On the night of the attack, Sean Smith, sent this message via a gaming app

”Assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures.”

What is interesting to note here, is the quotations around the word police.  Here, he is referring to the Feb. 17th Brigade, and what it tells me is he is questioning just who these ‘police’ are with, why  are they casing the safe house taking pictures?  We now know that this “Brigade” is an affiliate of Al Queda and they fought under the “Black Flag” of  Al Queda.  Diana West, an expert in Middle East affairs has this to offer:

The Obama administration, however, threw in Uncle Sam’s lot with bad guys – the “rebels,” the “martyrs,” the Muslim Brothers, the whole jihad-happy crew in Libya and the wider Middle East. Uncle Sam, more or less, crossed to the “other side.” It is this alliance or support for “martyrs” and their sympathizers in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt and Syria that is the betrayal from which Benghazi-gate rises, particularly as our veterans’ cemeteries and hospitals are filled with casualties caused by such “martyrs.”

Let’s cut to the chase.  Benghazi is shaping up to be the worst cover-up ever in the history of the US.  The 12 reports that were filed within the first 24 hours, outlining to the White House exactly what had transpired, never once mention a “protest” or any “video”.  They do mention Al Queda linked group called Ansar al-Sharia, claiming the attacks.  We know that the drone was feeding live video back to the White house “situation room” and that Obama was in a meeting with Panetta and Biden at the White House—we know they were informed via those emails of the attack in progress.  Is there any doubt they also were watching this live in real time?

And with that info, Obama strolled out to the Rose Garden, and alluded to this “video”.  In later appearances Obama does talk about the “vile” video, slamming Romney for calling it a “terrorist” attack.  The DOJ indicts and arrests a man, albeit with a shady past—but does his family deserve having a price on their head—do they deserve to never return to their home, due to danger?  Does he deserve to be in protective custody due to death threats from Muslim extremists?  Do the 4 dead Americans, and their families, deserve any of what has gone on?

America stands at the crossroads in history.  The Main Stream Media is protecting Obama, so many Americans do not know these details.  They are hoping to slide through the next 2 weeks and pull out a victory, putting back in power the President who watched our fellow Americans die….and then, went to bed.

Executive Privilege

Whew. Attorney General Eric Holder was able to loosen the noose around his neck this morning. His eleventh hour appeal to boss Obama was granted giving him Executive Privilege in the Fast and Furious case.Read Holder’s letter here.

In granting this order the White House stated that President Bush used Executive Privilege during his presidency. They fail to remember the outrage by Democrats and the media when this happened. Even if what Bush did was wrong didn’t their momma ever tell them that two wrongs don’t make a right? Isn’t it time to stop blaming Bush and start explaining this administrations actions?

The death of Border Agent Brian Terry over one and a half years ago should have been resolved with questions answered quickly and truthfully. Who originally authorized this program? What was its true purpose? There are many who speculate gun running would prove that most guns being used by cartels in Mexico were from the US which would bring public support to stronger gun laws. How far up the Justice Department did it go? Did knowledge of this program go into the administration? Who signed off on such a potentially dangerous idea? Who lied when the first letter from the Obama administration was sent to Congress denying any knowledge of Fast and Furious–a letter which was proven untrue by the House Oversight Committee? How far does this cover-up go? What does Executive Privilege do to keep us from finding out the truth.

People should be angry. This program did not make Americans safer. In fact, many would argue that purposely selling weapons to men of ‘questionable character’ has  done nothing but add to the violence along the border. However, it appears that many viewers of the left leaning media are still woefully uninformed about the Fast and Furious gunrunning program.

Today, as the news channels are forced to report on this tragic tale of woeful incompetence average citizens may start to learn about a terrible program, apparently run at very high levels, that went terribly wrong. Hopefully, they will begin asking questions about this program. When they do which truly non-biased reporters will give them all the gory details?

Here are a few key details to share with your awakened friends:

  • Fast and Furious is not the same as the Bush era Operation Wide Receiver. Notably, Wide Receiver was a gun tracing program run with the knowledge and assistance of the Mexican government. During Fast and Furious Mexican officials were kept out of the loop.
  • Fast and Furious weapons are linked to one killed Border Patrol Agent and over 300 Mexican deaths.
  • Sending guns across the border to Mexico was part of the Fast and Furious plan. Losing track of them, maybe not so much.
  • Much of the current debate about Fast and Furious is not the program itself but a possible cover-up. A letter sent to Congress denying knowledge of the program by Holder’s office was eventually retracted, over one year later.
