Who would ever think that the Libyans would be more truthful than the White House? I, for one never thought that it was possible that a country such as Libya could possibly be truthful. However, the attack on the consulate at Benghazi has proved me wrong!! The first information that I read on the attack gave me the Clinton or State Department narrative, and only then did I learn about that picture of a dead Chris Stevens.I am not certain that some details have ever been verified, or that Stevens was alive when he was pulled from the house. On top of that I am not certain that the blood stains on the walls belong to the Americans. This is because more than 10 Libyans were either killed or wounded during the attack as they were protecting the consulate staff. Someone within their midst was a traitor to the cause, and yes it hurt the people of Benghazi and of Libya. What I did learn very quickly though, is that the Department of State, the White House, and the Obama Administration were once again caught lying about what took place.
Let’s start with the early narrative regarding a documentary of extremely poor quality that had been pasted on the Internet. How many people would have even looked at this extremely poor documentary if it was not for the White House narrative? My feelings on the matter (and yes they are only feelings, not truth) is that the documentary itself was psy-ops, a set-up. If anything it might even be that it surfaced too soon to be of use to Obama in his re-election efforts. Adding to my suspicions on this subject is the fact that it appeared on Egyptian TV with Arabic subtitles. Can no one smell the possibility of a set-up?
Keeping within the subject of the narrative here is the fact that this c- grade documentary has caused riots all over the Middle East, and it has led to the trashing of various embassies and consulates.Rage Boy was let out of his cage again!! I note here that Obama continues to stick with this narrative, no matter what, and that he is using it in an attempt to restrict the freedom of speech of non-Muslims. His speech to the UN on this very subject was disgusting. The narrative itself was supposed to be that there was a protest happening outside of the US consulate and that what happened there was somehow spontaneous.
However, within a few days of the death of the US Ambassador to Libya, the narrative began to unravel. The first hint of fraying came from the UK where a Libyan, a former member of the LFG, and now a member of a think tank declared that the attack itself had the hallmarks of Al Qaeda. The man knew his subject because of his own association (now repudiated) with Al Qaeda in the old days of fighting against the Russians in Afghanistan. The next fraying came when the Libyan President also remarked on the same subject, and that was followed by eye witnesses to the attack (the people who were guarding the consulate) who stated that there was no protest at the time. One such witness has given quite a bit of detail that has totally shattered the narrative.
As time moves on, we are learning more and more about the intelligence reports, and the lack of response from Washington. Yes, it turns out that the POTUS has not been bothering with intelligence debriefs, and on top of that when he knew that the consulate was under attack, took himself off to bed!!
The actions of Obama are so reprehensible, that I believe people should be extremely angry over the way that he is continuing to endanger the lives of Americans, as well as the lives of those allies who have been in the field helping in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
The path forward for Libya should be a lot smoother, but the fact remains that there are elements in and around Benghazi that were always of concern. Obama and Clinton should have known that there was real cause for concern in Benghazi and the State Department should have been ensuring that the building in which the consulate was operating was indeed safe from this kind of attack. It is not just Al Qaeda loyalists and affiliates, there are other sub-groups, some of them Islamists, but others are pro-Gadhafi. I have mentioned this previously, that I continue to see the Gadhafi family as a threat to Libya. So long as the other sons and daughter remain on the loose, then there are threats to Libya. This means that Libya remains unstable. Libya is not associated with Iran, and it is foolish to even think that the people in charge would associate themselves with Iran. This is because Iran back Gadhafi but Iran did take an each way bet – Iran gave munitions to Gadhafi and medicinal aid to Benghazi during the civil war. From the point of view of those currently in charge, though, you can be sure that they are not going to fall over backwards supporting Iran. There is another reason as to why they would not align themselves, and that is Libyans are either Sunni, Sufi or Sanusi rather than being Shia. This is also why Muslim Brotherhood does not have a real toe-hold in that country. Claims that Muslim Brotherhood are in charge in Libya are simply nonsense spread by people who are ignorant with regard to the people of Libya.
To understand Libya you must study the period between the second world war and the usurpation of king Idris by a very young Gadhafi. During that period Idris was not quite pro-Israel, but certainly neutral. Gadhafi took Libyans in a different direction. Gadhafi turned Libya into a Socialist State, which was something that irked older Libyans. NO, they were not grateful that they had money in their bank account every month, or that they had free medicine, free hospital etc. They were resentful over their country being made into a Socialist State. In that pre-Gadhafi era Libya was a Sharia law country. Nothing changed when Gadhafi was in charge, except that he destroyed their various mosques and he would not allow the Berber to speak their own language.
As more and more information emerges regarding the attack on the US consulate, the more it makes the White House, and Obama look incredibly foolish. The President of Libya has contradicted the White House and he has firmly stated that it was an Al Qaeda attack, and on top of that there is the fact that there was no demonstration.
What does this mean? My mind, which does not normally run to conspiracy theories is having a bit of a field day on this one. I am starting to think that this attack was not only planned, but that the video was meant to cause the kind of mayhem that has taken place in the Middle East and elsewhere but that this was a video that was funded by people associated with the DNC and the Obama campaign. Since Obama is in the tank with Muslim Brotherhood, I am fast forming the opinion that there was a plot that has gone wrong, in that the attack on the consulate was not supposed to happen, but the other scenes from Egypt through to Pakistan were supposed to happen. How come Al Qaeda was prepared to attack at the right moment? Something smells really, really fishy about the whole thing.
