I wrote this back on October 9th, when it became apparent that the State Department was lying.
That was far fetched. That would never happen with this Administration. Right?Here’s a thought. What if the military knows that the weapons used to gain access to, and kill the American’s in Benghazi were provided to the Libyan rebels by the Presidential Finding decision that circumvented Congress back in March 2011. Therefore, the White House (under the advice of the State Department) armed the rebels, who turned out to be terrorists. Essentially, the White House and State Department provided the means and opportunity for terrorists to attack our Embassy and now they are focusing everyone on the opportunity to turn everyone away from the means (weapons).
There you go. Our president used a loophole to go around Congressional approval, handed weapons to a non-vetted group, and those weapons were likely used to kill our Ambassador, and three other fellow Americans. That is why the White House, State Department and Intelligence agencies answering to the president were obligated to lie with impunity despite the facts right out in front of us all. It was to distract from the real incompetence of our president who was campaigning for re-election.WASHINGTON — The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats.
