Obama Armed Militants



URGENT: New reports confirm that Barack Obama 'secretly' approved arms shipments that ultimately wound up in the hands of Islamic militants, including those in Libya and throughout the Middle East. We may finally know Barack Obama's true motive for abandoning our people to die and stonewalling investigations of the 9/11 Benghazi massacre that KILLED four Americans.

We the People DEMAND the truth of why Obama has covered up the trail of responsibility!

The New York Times today devastated Barack Obama's "YouTube cover up" of Benghazi with evidence confirming that Barack Obama covertly approved arms shipments worth more than $200 million indirectly destined for rebel movements throughout the Middle East, including Islamist militants in Libya.

Beginning in the early months of the Libyan rebellion that overthrew dictator Muammar Qaddafi in 2011, the Obama White House took up a concerted effort to allow a U.S. arms dealer to sell weapons to Qatar and the United Arab Emirates KNOWING that those machine guns, rocket launchers and various ammunition would be funneled to Islamist militant groups in Libya and elsewhere in the Middle East.

Using Qatar as a convenient middleman to cover his tracks, Barack Obama evidently put weapons into the hands of the very terrorists who killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other valiant Americans on the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks – and then tried to cover his tracks with a phony story blaming a YouTube video!

Worse even than initially arming these terrorists, the Obama administration did nothing tostop arming the jihadist groups even after Mahmoud Jibril, then Prime Minister of the Libyan transitional government, came to Obama's people with the information that Qatar was funneling U.S. weapons to arm Islamist militant groups who were plotting to overthrow the new, moderate Libyan government!

The New York Times reports:
The United States, which had only small numbers of C.I.A. officers on the ground 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…
The Qataris provided weapons, money and training to various rebel groups in Libya. One militia that received aid was controlled by Adel Hakim Belhaj, then leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, who was held by the C.I.A. in 2004 and is now considered a moderate politician in Libya. It is unclear which other militants received the aid.
"Nobody knew exactly who they were," said the former defense official. The Qataris, the official added, are "supposedly good allies, but the Islamists they support are not in our interest."

During the revolution against Qaddafi, the U.S. admitted to directly providing weapons and financing to Libyan rebels. As reported by WND, "At the time, rebel leader Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi admitted in an interview that a significant number of the Libyan rebels were al-Qaeda fighters, many of whom had fought U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan."

But that didn't stop Barack Obama from staying the course with yet anotheranti-American "lead from behind" gun-running operation that allowed Libyan terrorists to very likely use our own weapons against us and kill our own people in Benghazi!

Barack Obama ignored the warnings from the new Libyan Prime Minister.
His administration ignored the warnings from Ambassdor Chris Stevens that the 'consulate' would not be able to withstand a terror attack.

Barack Obama and every higher-up in the situation room ignored repeatedly Americans' cries for help when they were under attack.

All evidence is condemning the Obama Benghazi cover up as a conspiracy to conceal its own explicit role in arming the terrorists responsible. Congress will be listening TODAY as the fall-out from this damning news story begins to break through the elites' wall of protection around Obama. But we must strike while the iron is hot and the public at large is demanding answers that even the Obama-controlled mainstream media cannot subdue!

There is no doubt that Barack Hussein Obama has the blood of our four, patriot Americans killed in Benghazi (and that of the countless innocent victims of Islamist terrorists throughout the Middle East and North Africa) on his hands, but he and his underlings will get away with it UNLESS we make sure justice is served!

Marc Turi, the American arms merchant who had originally sought to provide weapons directly to Libya only to be told by our officials to go through Qatar, told the New York Times that what "the U.S. government and Qatar allowed from there was between them." Mr. Turi also believes that the U.S. shut down his original plan to supply Libya directly because it got in the way of Obama's plans to covertly arm rebels throughout the Middle East.
As for the Qataris, Mr. Turi said they imposed no controls on who got the weapons and "just handed them out like candy."

One former Defense Department official told the Times that some of the weapons have since ended up in the hands of al-Qaeda affiliates in Mali (where Shariah law has since been implemented!) while other weapons have gone to Syria!

Countless lies have been told in the Obama cover up, but the true story is that the Obama administration began covert gun-running throughout the Middle East, giving its secret blessings to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, in order to avoid a ground war and its inevitable political fallout. Here we are three months after the Benghazi massacres, still fighting for the truth and for justice.

While it has not yet been confirmed that U.S.-approved weapons were explicitly involved in the lethal terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi (when this Commander in Chief issued "stand down" orders leaving four Americans to DIE rather than green-light readily available help), the truth – that Obama armed the Libyan terrorists responsible for those killings and then he covered it up – will only fully emerge with an immediate Congressional investigation delving without fear or favor into the Obama administration's secret gun-running activities to jihadists!

Reports since the Benghazi massacres have additionally revealed that the Benghazi "consulate" (as U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice called it on her Sunday media blitz following the attacks to spew Obama's YouTube cover-story) was in fact not a "consulate."

In fact it was a "mission" or a mere "facility" likewise changed in the White House talking points along with every reference to terrorism being scrubbed.

As first reported by WND, the U.S. diplomatic "mission" in Benghazi actually served as a meeting place to coordinate aid for the rebel-led insurgencies in the Middle East, including those who were openly members of terrorist organizations like al-Qaeda and its affiliate Ansar Al-Sharia, which went on to claim responsibility for the Benghazi attack and killings.
According to WND:
"The security officials divulged the building was routinely used by Stevens and others to coordinate with the Turkish, Saudi and Qatari governments on supporting the insurgencies in the Middle East, most prominently the rebels opposing Assad's regime in Syria."
Last Month, Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes contended that the White House made minor, factual edits to the CIA's original intelligence assessment, particularly about how to refer to the facility changing it from "consulate" to "diplomatic facility."
This has been further corroborated by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Still, after the White House pointedly changed the terms, Rice repeatedly referred to the facility as a "consulate" just as she repeatedly blamed the Benghazi massacre – which the intelligence community and administration immediately knew was a planned and well armed terrorist attack – on the pretext of a non-existent spontaneous protest of a silly anti-Islam YouTube video…

Was she simply trying to cover up Barack Obama's lethal gun-running run amok?
This is shameful, embarrassing and intolerable that our leadership would play politics with American lives. All in authority in this administration with blood on their hands, particularly Barack Obama himself, must be hauled before Congress to testify under oath – and then justice must be served in full measure.

Former CIA Director General David Petraeus revealed that the Intelligence communities and the White House knew the Benghazi massacre was a terrorist attack right away.

And now we're learning more about our Commander-in-Chief's complicit role in arming Libyan terrorists, likely even those responsible for the Benghazi massacre!

The formal links between Ansar Al-Sharia, the heavily-armed Salafist terrorist group responsible, and Al-Qaeda were well known. Ansar Al-Sharia was conspicuously present in real-time intelligence, dragging U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens' dead body through the streets of Benghazi, kicking and punching the corpse and shouting 'Allahu Akbar,' or Allah is Great.

Meanwhile the Left side of Capitol Hill is blaming the watering down of the talking points on "the process of having passed through different levels of classification" – but we aren't buyingthis excuse, either. As our ambassador to the United Nations, Rice had access to the highest levels of intelligence… She was either willfully lying, for which she should be prosecuted – or she was so incompetent and deleterious in her duty to speak under cover of authority to the American people she should resign from public service!

Barack Obama is counting on Americans abandoning this quest for truth and justice, now that Petraeus' testimony seems to establish that "the process" changed the talking points AFTER the intelligence memo left the CIA for the White House.

While the testimonies of DNI Chief James Clapper and former CIA Director David Petraeus were at least a start to uncovering WHAT happened and WHO is responsible for ruthlessly abandoning four Americans to Islamist terrorists and needless death, it is not enough.
We will not be distracted from our pursuit of the truth and of justice!

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, a key member of the House Intelligence Committee, is going after the Obama administration, saying that Congress has "yet to hear from the principal decision makers who responded to what occurred September 11 and 12 when American lives were placed in peril." In particular, Bachmann wants to hear from National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, FBI Director Robert Mueller, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, and their subordinates in their respective chains of command.

Bachmann indicated three key areas where questions MUST be answered:
Why was there a lack of security at the Benghazi consulate prior to the attack, despite repeated (denied) requests for additional security that ultimately put the safety of Ambassador Stevens into the hands of local Libyan militia infiltrated with terrorists;
Why was CNN able to simply pick up Ambassador Steven's personal diary from the charred and gutted remains of the consulate?
What did the terrorists find in the three week window before the FBI showed up to secure the sovereign compound, and why did it take so long for the FBI to get there?
Key decision makers knew almost immediately – between cables, emails and phone calls from Ambassador Stevens himself and other Americans at the consulate – that the facility was under heavily armed attack – Why did it take 20 hours for the U.S. military to land in Italy and those already stationed two hours away never receive orders to go in and protect these U.S. Citizens who would die nearly seven hours after the attack first began?
Why was U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice sent on a public relations junket, appearing on Sunday television shows after the attack?
Why did she claim the Benghazi massacre was the unfortunate result of a spontaneous protest to an anti-Islam YouTube video and that there was a 'substantial security presence' at the consulate?
Why did Barack Obama state six times before the United Nations on September 25 – two weeks after the attack that our government clearly knew was a terrorist attack unrelated to the video – that the anti-Islam YouTube video was the motivating factor behind the attack?
Bachmann says the Obama administration is trying to "change their narrative and have it both ways" regarding the Benghazi massacre, and she is absolutely right.

The Obama administration didn't hesitate to release specific details, "including some classified information," almost as soon as Osama bin Laden was dead, yet nearly three months after the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, America still has cover up, confusion and obfuscation – but doesn't have answers!

This is just the beginning of a very long struggle for answers and for justice.
Barack Obama is hoping that the American people are appeased with Petraeus' testimony and that the Obama administration can wash their hands of the blood of four Americans handed over to the terrorists.

But they are sorely mistaken, especially after these new reports reveal Barack Obama green-lighted arming Libyan Islamists who were very likely the jihadists responsible for the brutal Benghazi massacre of our four American patriots!

We CANNOT allow this administration to continue its evasion of accountability and justice, not when it comes to determining why four Americans were abandoned and their irreplaceable lives callously handed over to Islamic terrorists. Barack Obama and every other person in the Chain of Command MUST be held accountable for their FAILURE to protect American personnel – and for the CRIMINAL COVER UP that has followed!
At the highest levels, the cover up continues!

The Washington Examiner reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton DECLINED to testify on Benghazi due to a scheduling conflict! That's right – 'a scheduling conflict' is preventing the Secretary of State of the United States of America from giving testimony before Congress concerning the abject FAILURE of this administration, including the dereliction of her own duty, to save the lives of those four Americans needlessly sacrificed to Islamist terrorists.

"[Clinton] was asked to appear at House Foreign Affairs next week, and we have written back to the Chairman to say that she'll be on travel next week," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters. "She has a commitment with the Secretary of Defense to the AUSMIN Ministerial."

The LYING, the timeline, everything about Benghazi indicates a cover-up that makes Watergate look like a little white lie.

This administration is hoping to hide behind the FBI and State Department investigations of Benghazi, and we're guessing it's for good reason. The Obama administration, as usual, is far more concerned about protecting itself than seeing justice served.

We want Clinton – and every other official in the Situation Room who watched Americans die in real time – held accountable and to answer to the American people for handing over our Ambassador and three other Americans to the terrorists when life-saving help was one swift command and mere minutes away!

We want those responsible for NOT sending readily available, life-saving aid to answer to the families of our men! Those who were abandoned by cowards in this administration to die kept faith with us – we MUST KEEP FAITH WITH THEM!

Clinton KNOWS WELL what was going on in Benghazi and she MUST TESTIFY before Congress – she and other officials of rank in Washington – but we MUST take action right now to make sure it happens!

We MUST step up our demands to Congress.

"Somebody the other day said to me, 'This is as bad as Watergate.' Well, nobody died in Watergate," said Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) during an interview on CBS' "Face the Nation."

"This is either a massive cover up or incompetence that is not acceptable … to the American people," said McCain.
Sen. McCain is absolutely right.

The fact that thirty Americans were attacked for seven hours (and four of them DIED) with no help from a well-informed Oval Office is NOT ACCEPTABLE. The failure to take responsibility is NOT ACCEPTABLE.
No one wants to admit to failure and then commit to making sure Washington never again doles out a death sentence with orders for Americans to "stand down" against terrorists!

Washington elites have been condemning us for seeking the truth as guilty of "Monday morning quarterbacking" and clearly wanted to wait until after the Election for a Congressional investigation…

But nothing Obama or his underlings in Washington do will stop us from seeking the truth and justice these four dead Americans deserve.

Never again will the highest levels of our government watch Americans die in real time while concocting a bogus story to hide the truth from the American people.

We cannot allow Barack Obama and his media minions to distract Americans from seeking the truth that the families of these men – Amb. Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods – deserve.
