The House Select Committee on Benghazi released a report attacking the Obama administration’s response to the terror attack in Benghazi, while conveniently omitting information pointing to Benghazi’s use as a staging ground for clandestine arms transfers to Al-Qaeda-linked rebels in Syria.
The nearly 800-page report, released earlier this week, attacked then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over her failure to provide adequate security for America’s diplomatic facilities in Libya in the aftermath of the Western-backed overthrow of Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi, as well as President Obama and his administration for perpetuating the narrative that the attack was caused by outrage over a YouTube video depicting the Muslim Prophet Muhammad.
Yet the committee’s report omitted all facts relating to the circumstances surrounding the Benghazi attack and the CIA’s clandestine arms smuggling program to Al-Qaeda-linked rebels fighting to overthrow the Syrian government.
As Kurt Nimmo reported, “a number of guests appearing on the Alex Jones Show following the attack have built an indisputable case that the CIA was shipping arms from U.S.-controlled facilities located at the U.S. mission in Benghazi to its mercenaries in Syria and 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.”
Retired Army Lt. General William G. Boykin, speaking with CNS News, suggested the United States was using the CIA annex in Benghazi to facilitate secret arms transfers to rebels in Syria, explaining Ambassador Chris Stevens’ presence in the city.
“Then what was Stevens doing there on September 11 of 2012?” Boykin said. “More supposition was that he was now funneling guns to the rebel forces in Syria, using essentially the Turks to facilitate that. Was that occurring, (a), and if so, was it a legal covert action?”
According to reports, the CIA subjected operatives to monthly polygraph tests in an attempt to suppress details of the arms smuggling operation in Benghazi that was ongoing when the attack occurred.
It should come as no surprise that any facts detailing arms transfers to Al-Qaeda-linked rebels in Syria would be kept secret, as the United States, NATO, Saudi Arabia and the Sunni Gulf States have made it their mission to fund and arm radical Wahhabist groups to destabilize the Middle East and bring about a clash of civilizations.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign spokesman, Brian Fallon, called the report a rehash of “discredited conspiracy theories,” a term ironically coined by the CIA in 1967 to attack anyone who questions the government narrative.
