Benghazi Report: Finding 400 Missing U.S. Missiles Was Part of The CIA/State Dept Objective….

blood on their hands

This does not come as a surprise to anyone who has followed the events in Libya.  Especially those of us who were highlighting the missile issues well before the Benghazi 9/11/12 attacks.

Originally, in March of 2011, our research showed clearly – In 2007, during a little known raid against Islamist forces based in Syria, the United States became aware the origin, and home country, of many al-Qaeda operatives who ended up fighting against us in Iraq.   Captured documents were shipped to the West Point Military Academy’s Combatting Terrorism Center.

From those documents we learned: [...]  The eastern Libyan city of Darnah sent more fighters to Iraq than any other single city or town, according to the West Point report. It noted that 52 militants came to Iraq from Darnah, a city of just 80,000 people (the second-largest source of fighters was Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, which has a population of more than 4 million).

We also knew in Benghazi, the capital of Libya’s provisional government declared by the anti-Qaddafi rebels, sent in 21 fighters, again a disproportionate number of the whole.

Knowing the 2007 captured records revealed the Eastern Libyan participation in the anti-coalition forces militancy in Iraq one could imagine the Banghazi-Darnah export of Islamists since then.    These same forces were back flowing into Libya from all the various battlefields around Afghanistan and Iraq.  Libyans in general were more fired up to travel to Iraq to kill Americans than anyone else in the Arabic-speaking world.   This information should also have given pause to those in the United States so eager to arm Libya’s rebels.

Alas, thanks to Samantha Powers, Susan Rice, and eventually Hillary Clinton it did not.

The resulting Libyan war became the global arms market’s richest event in the previous five years.     While Qaddafi may have been its primary engine, the Libyan rebels were not amiss by dipping their hands in this lucrative market on their own behalf.

In the third week of February, 2011, Iranian representatives arrived in Benghazi on a shopping trip. They sat down with “senior officers” of Libya’s rebel forces, including former members of Qaddafi’s army.  (link)

In the first week of March, 2011 secret delegations arrived from Lebanon and the Gaza Strip to confirm prices and arrange for the chemical weapons, as well as missiles of various types, especially anti-aircraft missiles purchased in the same batch, to be smuggled out of Libya and transported to their buyers.  (link)

Additionally in March of 2011 we first started discussing the role of the CIA in Libya.  At the time mentioned Robert Gates and Admiral Mike Mullen were briefing congress:

[...]  Gates said that he believes political and economic pressures will eventually drive Gaddafi from power, but the military operation will help force him to make those choices by degrading his defense capabilities.  Gates and Mullen were testifying before the House and Senate Armed Services Committees in the wake of revelations that small teams of CIA operatives are working in Libya.   Gates declined to comment on the CIA activities in Libya.   US officials have acknowledged that the CIA has sent small teams of operatives into Libya and helped rescue a crew member of a US fighter jet that crashed.

The CIA’s precise role in Libya is not clear.   Intelligence experts said the CIA would have sent officials to make contact with the opposition and assess the strength and needs of the rebel forces in the event Barack Obama, the US president, decided to arm them.   (March 2011)

Also in March of 2011, we brought you the report from Chad’s President Deby, about thousands of surface to air missiles flowing through his country.  (AFP Link Here)

In September of 2011, we brought you the report from inside Libya, reported by CNNi, about 20,000 surface to air missiles being shipped toward North Africa.  (CNN Link here)

Sarkosy with Clinton - whatz weeth you americanz now

In February of 2012 we brought you the report from inside Syria, a General within the FSA, who admitted they had received surface to air missiles from the United States and France.  (link here)

On December 6th, 2012, almost three months after the Benghazi attack that killed Ambassador Stephens, the New York Times finally ran a story outlining the weapons shipments we had been discussing for the previous 2+ years:

 [...]  - The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year [2012] , 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.

… the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan militants, concerns that have not previously been reported. The weapons and money from Qatar strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of the Qaddafi government. 

[...]   The United States, which had only small numbers of C.I.A. officers in Libya during the tumult of the rebellion, provided little oversight of the arms shipments. Within weeks of endorsing Qatar’s plan to send weapons there in spring 2011, the White House began receiving reports that they were going to Islamic militant groups. They were “more antidemocratic, more hard-line, closer to an extreme version of Islam” than the main rebel alliance in Libya, said a former Defense Department official. (read more)

So is this latest report really a surprise?

On August 12, 2013 Joe DiGenova, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, told Washington D.C.’s WMAL that one of the reasons people have remained tight-lipped about Benghazi is because 400 U.S. missiles were “diverted to Libya” and ended up being stolen and falling into “the hands of some very ugly people.”

DiGenova represents Benghazi whistleblower Mark Thompson. He told WMAL that he “does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles.”

He claimed his information “comes from a former intelligence official who stayed in constant contact with people in the special ops and intelligence community.” He said the biggest concern right now is finding those missiles before they can be put to use. “They are worried, specifically according to these sources, about an attempt to shoot down an airliner,” he claimed.  (read more)

In 2011, Mr Obama said the Libyan rebels were “saying the right things” so far. “Most of them are professionals, lawyers, doctors, people who appear to be credible,” he told CBS.

    Still way too many unknowns here. The CIA would have sent their ops people in to make contact with the rebels but most likely would have sent SF (then I’d say probably SEALS) in to look for the missiles once location(s) were established. Thing is, once the embassy was torched the SOCOM people went into full info lockdown and Langley starting putting files in that warehouse right next to the Ark of the Covenant. It’s quite possible that State still doesn’t have a clear and total picture of what went on from the time the first round was fired until the cover-up began. I get the feeling State isn’t covering up what happened as much as they are the fact they don’t have a full grasp on what happened. The dead are not as important to them as the organizational embarrassment the affair has caused. Why it happened is somewhat important but why everyone panicked, failed to have or execute an effective personnel security plan and everyone from all departments just flat dropped the ball is my primary interest. Usually State, DoD, CIA – all of ‘em – have a ‘competitive’ relationship built on who has the biggest – ummm – ‘authority’. To see them all gather together and joining hands in a cover-up is both unusual and telling. Expect straw dogs and world class obfuscation soon.

    ROMNEY: “Pres. Obama overthrew a sovereign country without approval from Congress required under the war powers act and subsequently lost track of 400 Surface to Air missiles, any one of which can take down a passenger airliner anywhere, anytime. My fellow Americans, we must have new leadership in Washington who will take US security serious and fight the terrorists. Not empower terrorists. I will be the leader who fights to protect America, not exposes her citizens to ever greater threats.”

    This was a plan put together by the WH for State and CIA to arm the rebels in Syria. The WH could state they knew nothing. They would gather them all at Benghazi and ship them through Turkey. Remember Syria shooting rockets at the Turkish border – now you know the other side of the story. Some say this was a Hillary brainchild which I would not doubt as State could always deny any responsibility. When the Muslim Brotherhood found out the weapons would not go to their fighters they decided to take them and also grab Ambassador Stephens to use as a hostage to get the blind sheik out of prison in America. Nothing like getting double crossed by your friends in the terrorist ranks.

    I’m dubious any of our stuff went missing. Here’s why. Here is the best open source website for what arms are showing up in the only ‘hot’ war going on over there ( and its hot in Syria)

    http://brown-moses.blogspot.com/

    The Syrian rebels are getting arms but not first rate stuff because Assad’s air force is carrying out attacks and you don’t see Syrian rebels putting out videos of them standing around downed Syrian jets and gunships. If US missiles were making their way onto the battlefield, as they did during the Soviet Afghan war, we’d be seeing some evidence of that and we just aren’t.

      Good point. There’s two issues. Did missiles go missing is the first. The second is, if the missiles went missing, where did they go? We have someone seemingly in a position to know say they absolutely were missiles and they’re missing. If that is an absolute truth… then where did they go? We’re assuming they went to Syria. There’s no evidence they went anywhere because evidence of them going somewhere is evidence they exist.

      If we recovered them we’d never say. Too embarrassing to mention them so it’s better to forgo the accolades of recovering them. Best we can hope for is some operator near retirement decides to come clean and tell the world the perils that this admin put us in and how they saved our butts. Worst case is we find out where those missiles went when we hear on the news that an airliner loaded down with people flying out for the holidays were taken down.

      Consider this, if you were a terrorist who lucked upon a lottery ticket like American made missiles, would you fire them at random aircraft? An American town was shut down by two men with homemade bombs. Washington DC was in fear for weeks because of one man and a teen with an AR-15. Now imagine you’re about to head out during Thanksgiving week to visit family on the other coast when you hear on the news a plane taking off at LaGuardia or DeGaulle was shot down by an unknown terrorist cell. What would you do? What would millions of Americans and Europeans do?

      Let’s hope those missiles were recovered in secret.

        Look, this whole thing seems ‘fishy’ to me. Joe DeGenova was a great conservative voice on the TV 15-20 years ago but he maybe past his ‘sell by’ date and this client of his maybe not who or what he seems. As you say, top of the line US MANPAD missiles are not far from nuclear weapons in terms of their potential in the hands of terrorists. 400 of them in Benghazi? Get real, yet DeGenova is spouting off about a terrorist using one to attack an Embassy building! Huh! You use a US Stinger missile with a 1 lbs warhead to attack a building? Why not a cheap, easily replaced more powerful RPG? His story makes no sense. I think he may have been set up to look foolish and be discredited because there is just no way 400 US SAM were either in Benghazi or went missing.

    (1) EU intel folks are worried about the free movement of ‘fighters’ between European countries and Syria. It’s almost like the Crusades where religious fighters would leave their homes to fight in the Mideast and return when they needed to. Sort of a sharp irony but that’s the lumps. No real info on how many are ‘Arabs’ who’ve immigrated to Europe and how many are native white Europeans who’ve gone over to the dark side and I’m not surprised.
    (2) New report (http://web.law.columbia.edu/sites/default/files/microsites/human-rights-institute/COLUMBIACountingDronesFinalNotEmbargo.pdf) shows that for each bad guy killed in a drone strike some 50 civilians are killed. Take that as you may but even if it’s only ten to one thin about how your heart-and-mind would be won were that your family. Obama seems to be keeping up that rep as a lumbering, clueless giant, even with his Muslim connections. He’s gonna leave us quite a mess.
    (3) Friend of mine retired from the business tells me that the Yemeni intel service is saying the alleged attack on US embassies Obama used as an excuse to close the embassies was pure BS. The report was gleaned from a single statement a Yemeni official made in an attempt to divert Yemeni public outrage over the increased pace of drone strikes over the last few weeks. The government picked up on the remark and rode away with it, blowing it out of proportion. Some think it was done, to justify increased NSA surveillance, maybe divert attention from Snowden, maybe to make Obama look more ‘manly’ – maybe all or none, but the ‘conference call intercept’ explanation isn’t being swallowed by a lot of professional.
    (4) It seems clear to all that the CIAs running an arms smuggling operation in Benghazi, almost assuredly out of the embassy grounds. CIA’s thought to have had about 35 operatives in the city working the arms transfers (nationalities not disclosed) to the rebels at the time of the attack. This begs the question: “Might the attack have been carried out by Assad’s folks and not the al Qaeda rebels? Who’d have the most reasons to attack the embassy? Why would AQ attack the same folks supplying them with really great toys for free?
    (5) CIA’s been reported to be giving at least monthly polys to all connected with the Benghazi incident at any time on any level to prevent leaks. We’ve heard how many people State lost in the attack – the CIA’s not said how many it lost during and after and in what capacity the were working fo rthe Company.

        There’s going to be a major shakeout if the files on whom, from all sides, was on the ground when the attack occurred. As I’d said within days of the original attack – no one was mentioning the Russian ships that were floating around off shore. I’m betting the real files don’t have enough gopher in them to dig out of where they’re buried.

    American Thinker:

    “In this regard, Benghazi is a symbol of the current predicament of Western civilization. The fact that Obama was re-elected president of the United States while this story was still fresh, and that Clinton is casually presumed to be the presidential frontrunner for 2016, elevates Hannah Arendt’s famous concept, the banality of evil, almost to the point of being definitive of this final stage of modernity’s decay. Millions of ordinary people close their eyes and walk “forward” on demand — without evil intent, perhaps, but without the reason and judgment that men must possess if they are to discern and avoid evil outcomes. ”

    I’m skeptical the US was funneling missiles to anyone through Libya. It doesn’t make a lot of sense because:

    A. The Libyan rebels had a problem not with Libyan jets and helicopters but with Libyan tanks and artillery. French, British and American Air power was all over Libya taking out those assets.

    B. The general consensus was that Assad’s regime wasn’t long for the world and that the Syrian rebels didn’t need a lot of outside help.

    C. Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Arabs could provide what the Syrian rebels needed.

    So why all this cloak and dagger stuff out of Benghazi consulate. I imagine our real concern was as it is today, the loss of control over ex-Libyan and ex-Syrian military equipment to groups outside our control. There is just not a shortage of military hardware in the middle-east. Top of the line Western military hardware is just not required or going to be supplied to Syrian rebels for obvious reasons.
