Now We Know Why Obama Did Not Act in Benghazi
Amb. Stevens was overseeing the transfer of weapons to Syria through Turkey which the media and Congress are still ignoring. The scheme to “kidnap” him and then exchange him for the blind sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman could only have come from Obama. This plan was hidden in plain site. From the Wall Street Journal on September 24th, 2012:
WILL OBAMA FREE THE BLIND SHEIK?
Are senior Obama administration officials considering transferring to Egypt a poisonously influential Islamist cleric serving a life term in federal prison for trying to unleash a war of urban terrorism in the United States? That’s the impression several officials have given over the past three months, apparently out of fear that if the cleric dies in U.S. custody, American outposts in the Middle East could be overrun by vengeful mobs.
This shows the level of arrogance of this administration. A plan to hand over the mastermind of the 911 attacks to the new Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt would have been quite a coup for Obama’s standing in the Muslim world. We would get back Amb. Stevens and the media would extol the president’s actions for being able to make the hard choices.
So all rescues attempts were ordered to stand down as our military “leaders” impotently watched the attack in real time. But Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were not aware of the “plan”. And the efforts of these former Navy Seals changed the outcome of the attack and sealed the fate of the ambassador, Sean Smith and their own.
Where does that leave the president now? The IRS scandal smokescreen will not provide cover for this egregious act of treason. There will be no support for Obama from Congress and the military leadership is culpable. They may have been under orders to stand down but their actions have left them complicit. At this point, Obama should be concerned about retribution from the military to regain their honor in what will become the nation’s worst scandal in our history.
