Hillary Clinton & Barrak Obama: A Tale of Gun Runners in Libya
Wikileaks provides proof that Hillary Clinton and President Obama have broken Federal Law.
Julian Assange and Wikileaks are about to drop the biggest bomb yet on Hillary Clinton and President Obama. Assange is confirming that he has details that prove Crooked Hillary and Obama knew that the US was sending military arms from Libya to Syria in 2011, a full year before the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Did Ambassador Chris Stevens know? Did Sean Smith, or Tyrone Woods, or Glen Doherty know about the gun running to the rebels?
What this convincingly suggests is that Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama were heavily invested and involved in the arming of violent jihadists who hate Americans, namely ISIS.
However, in a sworn testimony before Congress in 2013, Hillary Clinton lied, claiming she had no information about this going on. Yet Clinton’s answers were largely unreported by the crooked U.S. news media
This is the exchange which took place with Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky) during the Benghazi hearings on January 23, 2011:
Rand Paul: “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.”
Rand Paul: “It’s been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that 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?”
Clinton: “Well, senator, you’ll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. I will see what information is available.”
Rand Paul: “You’re saying you don’t know?”
Clinton: “I do not know, I don’t have any information on that.”
In an interview with one of the media outlets, Assange said that Hillary Clinton knew about the weapon shipments:
Julian Assange: “So, those Hillary Clinton emails, they connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, creating a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office, but, more broadly, how the U.S. Department of State operates. So, for example, the disastrous, absolutely disastrous intervention in Libya, the destruction of the Gaddafi government, which led to the occupation of ISIS of large segments of that country, weapons flows going over to Syria, that were pushed by Hillary Clinton, into jihadists within Syria, including ISIS, that’s there in those emails. There are more than 1,700 emails in Hillary Clinton’s collection that we have released, just about Libya alone.”
A consulate refers typically to the actual building which houses the consul, the official representative of the government of one state in the territory of another. The actual U.S. consul in Libya, Jenny Cordell, works from Tripoli in the embassy there.
The crooked media has been referring to the U.S. facility that was attacked as a “consulate,” even though the government has been very careful to name it a “mission.”
According to the emails and also according to the State Department investigation, the building involved in the Benghazi attack was a “Special Mission” set up without the knowledge or consent of the Libyan government.
The crooked media has been mostly silent about the events in Benghazi and the American public; especially since even the victims’ families have been misled and lied to.
Egyptian officials have revealed that U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens was there, his mission was to recruit Jihadist for fighting Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria. The CIA Annex and the U.S. Mission was a planning center for the U.S. to aid the rebels, who were coordinated with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The rebel fighters are mostly members of terrorist organizations, including al-Qaida. The U.S. was collaborating with other countries, namely Turkey, for fighters in Jihad against Assad.
Did Obama know about the gun running to terrorist groups in Libya and Syria starting as early as 2011? Of course he did. According to a former CIA officer who co-authored a report for the Citizen’s Commission on Benghazi (CCB), detailing the gun running scheme. According to the source, back in 2011, the Obama Administration orchestrated a policy which allowed guns to wind up in the hands of jihadists linked to the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and al-Qaeda (AQ) in Syria.
The ripple effects of the illegal
According to Clare Lopez, a former CIA officer and the author of CCB’s interim report entitled “How America Switched Sides in the War on Terror,” she explains,
“In Congress, the then-bipartisan group, known as the “Gang of Eight,” at a minimum, knew of the operation to aid and abet America’s jihadist enemies by providing them with material support. To keep from being detected by the U.S. and the funding source being tracked back to the Obama Administration, the arms were financed through the United Arab Emirates and Quatar served as the logistical and shipping hub.
The Obama Administration effectively switch sides in what used to be called the Global War on Terror [GWOT] when it decided to overthrow the sovereign government of our Libyan ally, Muammar Qaddafi, who had been helping in the fight against al-Queda, by actually teaming up with and facilitating gun-running to Libyan al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood (MB) elements there in 2011.”
Lopez goes on: “This U.S. gun-running policy in 2011 during the Libyan revolution was directed by [then] Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and [the late Libya Ambassador] Christopher Stevens, who was her official envoy to the Libyan AQ rebels. In 2012, the gun-running into Libya turned around and began to flow outward, from Benghazi to the AQ-and-MB-dominated rebels in Syria. This time, it was the CIA Base of Operations that was in charge of collecting up and shipping out [surface-to-air missiles] SAMs from Libya on Libyan ships to Turkey for overland delivery to a variety of jihadist militias, some of whose members later coalesced into groups like Jabhat al-Nusra (Syrian affiliate of al-Qaeda) and ISIS (also known as IS). For Hillary Clinton to say that she knew nothing of guns and arms shipments in Benghazi, Libya or deliver to our enemies, namely ISIS is ludicrous at best.
Lopez further explained “The downstream consequences of Obama White House decisions in the Syrian conflict are still playing out, but certainly the U.S. – and particularly CIA – support of identifiable jihadist groups associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, Jabhat al-Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham, the Islamic State and other [jihadists] has only exacerbated what was already a devastating situation.
Some of the other weapons that eventually ended up in Syria included thousands of MAN-Portable-Air-Defense-System (MANPADS) missile units, such as shoulder-launched SAMs, from late dictator Muammar Qaddafi’s extensive arms stockpiles that pose a threat to low-flying aircraft, especially helicopters.
“It’s been reported that President Obama signed an Executive Order on Syria in early 2012 [just as he had done for Libya in early 2011], that legally covered the CIA and other U.S. agencies that otherwise would have been in violation of aiding and abetting the enemy in time of war and providing material support to terrorism,” notes Lopez. “Still, such blatant disregard for U.S. national security can only be described as deeply corrosive of core American principles.”
Stevens was killed by jihadists in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, along with three other Americans most likely with the weapons we supplied to the rebels.
Another source, someone who lives in Benghazi , provided a first-hand account of the incident, U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Dennis Haney, a CCB member, said that Hillary Clinton’s State Department armed some of the al-Qaeda linked jihadists who just may have been the ones who tragically killed the four Americans in Benghazi.
“The reason the U.S. government was operating in Libya is absolutely critical to this debacle because it reflects where America went off the tracks and literally switched sides in the GWOT,” points out Lopez. “This is about who we are as a country, as a people — where we are going with this Republic of ours.
“There can be no greater treason than aiding and abetting the jihadist enemy in time of war – or providing material – weapons, funding, intel, NATO bombing – support to terrorism,” she continued. “The reason Benghazi is not the burning issue it ought to be is because so many at top levels of U.S. government were implicated in wrong-doing: White House, Pentagon, Intel Community-CIA, Gang of Eight, at a minimum, in Congress, the Department of State, etc.”
Lopez is the vice president for research and analysis at the Center for Security Policy and a senior fellow at the London Center for Policy Research and the Canadian Meighen Institute.
Crooked Hillary covered her ugly pant suited behind by stating famously when asked about the gun-running operation, “I am not aware of any U.S. government efforts to arm jihadists in Libya and Syria.” Then she admitted she was open to the idea of using private security experts to arm the Qaddafi opposition, which included al-Qaeda elements, but added that it was not considered seriously. Well obviously it was considered seriously and to say she knew nothing about it is an outright lie. However what else is new? Hillary Clinton does not know how or want to tell the truth about her part in all of this, neither does President Obama.
However as we have seen to this day, our men and women of the Armed Forces and the forces abroad, continue to fight this menace called “ISIS” that Hillary Clinton and President Obama created and helped to grow.
The “Gang of Eight” were: Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) (he authored the nasty ‘Amnesty’ bill), Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO), Senator Richard J. Durbin (D-IL), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Lindsay Graham (R-SC), Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Chuck Shumer (D-NY)
