Benghazigate: The Disaster That Should Have Sunk Obama — and Still Could

Most of President Obama’s harshest Benghazi critics have focused on these twin security failures: failure to heed the prior warnings of those on the ground in Libya, and failure to aid our forces after they had come under attack. In addition, critics have blasted the administration for its coverup of these failures...However, what is far more damning for President Obama, and potentially far more damaging politically, is the charge that the so-called U.S. consulate in Benghazi was actually a staging center utilized by the administration for meetings between Ambassador Stevens and militant jihadist leaders and as a distribution center for supplying weapons to these anti-American jihadists, including al-Qaeda affiliates....

Investigative reporter/best-selling author/radio talk-show host Aaron Klein began reporting in September that according to his Middle East sources, Ambassador Stevens and other U.S. personnel were involved in the Obama administration’s effort to destabilize and overthrow the government of Syria. Klein, the Jerusalem bureau chief for WorldNetDaily (WND), wrote in a September 24 WND column: "Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador murdered in Libya, played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria, according to Egyptian security officials speaking to WND. Stevens served as a key contact with the Saudis to coordinate the recruitment by Saudi Arabia of Islamic fighters from North Africa and Libya. The jihadists were sent to Syria via Turkey to attack Assad’s forces, said the security officials."

“It was not a consulate,” Aaron Klein told The New American. “According to Middle East security officials I talked to, this was a major meeting point — I would say the central meeting point — for the American diplomats, including Christopher Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador who was killed, to meet with officials of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, about supplying the opposition in Syria and Libya. Well, who is the opposition? In Libya, the opposition openly included jihadists, included al-Qaeda elements. In Syria, right now, the al-Qaeda elements are leading the opposition.... According to the different sources I spoke to, what we have here is a U.S. policy of arming rebels, knowing or not knowing — but I can’t understand how they would not know — that many of these rebels are jihadists.”

I have an idea for how to move impeachment

up to infuriated table-top discussion, even among the ones who voted for Obama.

Make a high-quality emotional movie based on the true story of Benghazigate - not a documentary. Like an action movie, get people involved with the lives of these men before they all die and nail Obama completely. Not an animation, probably no higher than PG-13 so more can see it.

Anybody out there have that capacity or those connections?

Nothing will touch Obama PERIOD

We have 4 more years of this dipstick... and we Ron Paulers put him there. Be happy with your choice, and I hope you have enough resources to make it another 4 years... or 8, because Obama will trash the Constitution if he can... at least Romney somewhat respected the United States as a sovereign country. Obama wants us to be lead by the U.N. and molded via Agenda 21.

The media will protect Obama no matter what.

Country is a Romney supporter

It's pretty obvious what this guy is trying to do. Let's all rise above this "InfoWars tactic" and just give him his thumbs down.

Don't invest your emotions or your posts on this guy. He's a provocateur.

Oh please. Romney and his

Oh please. Romney and his evil coterie of neocons can go to hell! Obama is terrible, but his grip on power will weaken over the next two years and that is good for the Liberty movement. Of course, it could be good for neocons too. Let's hope you don't continue to support them by spouting that stupid "lesser of two evils" crap!

Not really. What SHOULD have sunk Obama was his ATTACK...

...on Lybia WITHOUT GOING TO CONGRESS for a declaration of WAR.

Obama fired over 1 billion dollars of cruise missiles into Lybia and most likely killed untold numbers of innocent Lybians.

Of course the corrupt media had no problem wwith that.

So now everyone screams bloody murder when 4 American get killed.

But what do you EXPECT?

And - WHY didn't Romney bust Obama on illegally attacking a country which did nothing to us and without following our Constitution?

THAT is the issue - Benghazi is simply a result of our military actions over there.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

You nailed it. THAT is why

You nailed it. THAT is why Romney could never get much traction with the Libya issue. It is hard to out neocon Obama on this issue. After all, they chided him for getting involved in Libya too slowly!

I think nothing will happen

with this and the GOP will have to move on to find something else to impeach him with until his last day in office....something new every 4-6 months.

How about the fact he was born in Kenya?

Where are his Collage Records? This guy is so "transparent" to WHO?

And we are asking if this unconstitutional war that this Nobel Peace Prize winner has us in (and has F-d up in BIGTIME) is something that might "sink Obama"?? Hmmmm..seeing as how we cant come up with any legitimate paper work on this guy..you know like where he was born and how he made it into collage.. if he didnt "sink" on that how and the hell is he going down on this??? Welcome to Amerika.:O(

Why the hell do you care

Why the hell do you care where he was born? Sure it might be in the Consitution, but not only is that part of the Constitution stupid, the document itself is stupid and anti-liberty.

Think about this guy and his post:

He came to the Daily Paul to talk about "the stupid, anti-liberty document," in which he is referring to the Constitution.

C'mon, really? We see right through you, JaKe.

The Constitution is stupid.

The Constitution is stupid. Whether you're comfortable with it or not, there actually are a wide variety of viewpoints on this site. Here's a few of the many points I could make about why I think the Constitution is stupid and anti-liberty:

1. It was created by the establishment to void the Articles of Confederation.

2. It legitimizes the state, which, as an anarchist, I vehemently oppose.

3. It grants vastly ambiguous and broad powers to the federal government, such as the power to regulate "interstate commerce" and protect the "general welfare" of the people.

4. Look at how it played out! The purpose YOU think it was designed to serve (protect the people against the state) was already on life support from day 1. The purpose it was ACTUALLY designed to serve (void the Articles of Confederation and reinstitute tyranny in the US) has been served more and more effectively each day up to today.

You all can think we're going to change things by "playing politics" and "voting" and "moneybombs" and "returning to the Constitution", and I say to you that there is zero evidence that that is an effective strategy. If this election season didn't show it, I don't know what more could make you finally realize it's time for some real change. Quit legitimizing the system. The system can't be fixed because it's a system that was designed entirely against our goals.

right here and it has never been debunked. The attending doctor at his birth James O.W. Ang'Awa lived right down the street from Barack Sr. and they were friends.
