Justin Raimondo: Is Rand Paul Right About Benghazi?

Hillary Clinton’s last hurrah at the State Department – her appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Benghazi – was outrageous in many respects, although the partisan fury of her Republican interrogators did more to obscure the facts than reveal them. However, perhaps their partisan zeal provoked her into the kind of response that hinted there was more to the attack than she could publicly admit. Under questioning by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), she threw up her hands and declared:

"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?"

It makes a great deal of difference to the families and friends of the dead, including the much-eulogized Ambassador Chris Stevens – not to mention the significance of this incident as indicative of a larger problem. While most of the GOP table-bangers focused on the lack of security at the "consulate" that was not really a consulate, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) asked a question that appeared to throw Hillary off her stride, but only momentarily;

"Is the U.S. involved with any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling, anyhow transferring weapons to Turkey out of Libya?"

"CLINTON: To Turkey? I will have to take that question for the record. Nobody has ever raised that with me.

"PAUL: It’s been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that they may have weapons and what I’d like to know is the annex that was close by, were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries, any countries, Turkey included?"

While I agree...

with exposing the US's role in both the planning and logistical support of the "arab springs" which has involved a continuation of the historical partnership between US military and intelligence and extreme islamist groups such as the muslim brotherhood and al qaeda (we created al qaeda and have had a close working relationship with the muslim brotherhood going to back to Eisenhower), singularly attacking Hillary, especially in such a partisan-appearing manner, only serves to obfuscate the true nature of the base that has been supporting such activities.

It is not a Democrat vs Republican issue. The arab spring planning began in the US State Dept, in coordination with many US corporations including Google and Facebook, back during the Bush Jr. administration. Even Glenn Beck has pointed this out.

The folks at Fox News openly voiced their preference for Hillary over McCain for a reason. Hillary, and most of the prominent Democrats are unapologetic zionists and have very few real qualms with the neocons major foreign policy goals of controlling the world's resources, especially in the mideast and central asia, and the goals of regime-change in Russia and China. Any disputes they have are just an internal family squabble.

The planning and ongoing logistical support of the arab springs is a great evil, but it ain't just Hillary and some democrats doing it. And neither Rand nor Raimondo are pointing this out. At least not yet.
