Iowans will be able to see “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” for free, thanks to Donald Trump.
Trump has rented a screen at the Carmike Cobblestone 9 Theatre in Urbandale to show the film.
“Mr. Trump would like all Americans to know the truth about what happened at Benghazi,” the GOP presidential candidate’s Iowa co-chair Tana Goertz said Thursday night.
The Real Benghazi
Unfortunately, the film does not mention Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. It avoids politics and, most significantly, steps around the real reason for the CIA mission in Benghazi—the delivery of weapons used by the US-supported Libyan rebels to their counterparts in Syria.
It’s too bad director Michael Bay didn’t consult Aaron Klein’s book, “The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary Don’t Want You to Know,” prior to shooting the action-adventure movie.
As Infowars reported in 2013 and Klein wrote in his book, the CIA shipped arms from Libya to Syria. Infowars added an element left untouched by most commentators: the murder of ambassador Stevens was carried out by an al-Qaeda affiliated group as part of a turf war between the CIA and elements in the Pentagon.
“The real issue is very simple, you have to think of two elements of the government fighting each other that are covert,” former government insider Steve Pieczenik told the Alex Jones Show on May 9, 2013. “The government is never unified, it never has been unified. For over thirty or forty years there has been a conflict between the military and the CIA and the FBI… The CIA has been run for the last fifty years by civilians who are out of control.”
All the evidence points to the Pentagon doing nothing to stop the attack on the compound. Martin Dempsey, chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, admitted during a Senate hearing in June, 2013 that highly trained Special Forces were stationed a few hours away from Benghazi on the night of the attacks but were not deployed.
This contradicts comments made by Gregory Hicks, the former top U.S. diplomat in Benghazi, who told Congress in May that officials from Special Operations Command-Africa ordered the units to stand down.
In May, 2013 Infowars.com posted an article reporting the fact the Benghazi attack and the murder of ambassador Stevens had nothing to do with an anti-Islam video, as the establishment media and the Obama administration insisted, but was directly connected to the shipment of arms from Libya to the jihadis in Syria and, as Pieczenik explained, a covert struggle between the Pentagon and civilians in the CIA.
Appearing on the Alex Jones Show in November, 2012 Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer pointed out that Turkey hard partnered with the CIA to take down Bashar al-Assad in Syria and, hours before the compound was attacked and Stevens and others lost their lives, the Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin met with the U.S. ambassador.
Turkey has played an instrumental role in arming the Islamic State and collaborating with jihadis in Syria. This fact was admitted by former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Wesley Clark. Intelligence files taken from a cache in Syria revealed “direct dealings between Turkish officials” and the Islamic State. The same official “confirmed that Turkey, a longstanding member of NATO, is not just supporting ISIS, but also other jihadist groups, including Ahrar al-Sham and Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria,” writes Nafeez Ahmed.
According to Egyptian security officials, Stevens was recruiting jihadists for the CIA’s war in Syria and “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,” writes Aaron Klein.
The Syrian mercenaries involved in the transfer belonged to the al-Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda and later Islamic State affiliate. This is part of a well-established pattern on the part of the CIA going back to at least its recruitment of the Mujahideen and so-called Afghan Arabs in Afghanistan and later in the Balkans.
It was learned after the attack that the February 17th Martyrs Brigade was paid by the State Department to protect the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. The group had “clear al-Qaida sympathies, and had prominently displayed the al-Qaida flag on a Facebook page for months before the deadly attack,” Max Rosenthal reported for Newsmax in May. The February 17th Martyrs Brigade, it was latter learned during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing, are in league with Ansar al-Sharia, linked to al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.
This is the real story of Benghazi, the one left out of the film and avoided by the establishment media.
If Donald Trump wants to take down Hillary Clinton, he will mention her connection as Secretary of State to the arms running operation or, short of that, highlight her claimed ignorance as a primary example of her ineptitude revealing why she shouldn’t be the president of the United States.
