How many layers of scandal will there end up being in Benghazi? First, we have the talking points being altered to cover up the ineptitude of the Obama administration. Then we have stand down orders that were issues to prevent any military aid from helping our people in harms way. We have the State Dept. demoting Greg Hicks for questioning the misinformation being given by the administration.

And then there is this piece that hasn’t really gotten much attention at all, that Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi to help facilitate the transfer of Libyan arms to the Syrian rebels by way of Turkey.

Well just yesterday morning, Geraldo revealed that he has sources telling him the same thing, that indeed Stevens was in Benghazi to help round up shoulder-to-air missiles to send to the Syrian rebels via Turkey (h/t: The Blaze):

 

I’m surprised this hasn’t gotten more attention. Fox News covered this back in Oct of last year and did an excellent report on it:

 

Glenn Beck also covered it in great detail back in October as well:

If we were running weapons, as it seems we were, then it makes sense why Obama was so gung ho about going into Libya in the first place to help overthrow Qaddafi. Those weapons were needed to help further the so-called Arab Spring happening in Syria. And it was done all in the name of democracy.

    Ding, ding, ding, some of us said this back when this happened, Fast & Furious II, leave no witnesses behind this time.

    • njmom

      Orangeone Yes, but the truth always finds a way to come out.

  • 57thunderbird

    I have been saying all along that the cover up was due to the fact that Benghazi was Fast and Furious part 2!

      • 57thunderbird

        Orangeone 57thunderbird HarryGiarratana So sorry. :( I saw your post after I posted and realized that I basically said the exact same thing as you.

      • Orangeone

        57thunderbird Orangeone HarryGiarratana :}  Because we were both saying the same thing on 9/12/12 my friend!  Stevens was in charge of the gun running and IMO Smith had the IT records of it. There was no doubt in my mind they had to die to leave no whistleblowers behind.

      • 57thunderbird

        Orangeone 57thunderbird HarryGiarratana I must agree,unfortunately. :(

Liberals cannabilizing each other, I have to admit… I’m not bothered by that. Now, if we could just get the RINOs to eat each other we could clean this mess up. That is if the Caliphate doesn’t cause a WWIII that kills millions of people. All thanks to the punk (along with his Joseph Goebbels media) in office and the imbeciles who (if it wasn’t voter fraud) elected him. God have mercy. But, due to what Americans have chosen to ignore about abortion, as a nation, do we deserve His mercy?

    • bahamianhoosier

      WordsFailMe And since was gay, if Repub prez did this they would call it a hate crime and ACLU and Civil Rights groups would label as prejudice and Stevens would be national hero. Sad the politicization of dead heroic Americans! Left picks and chooses who is important and we Conservatives say all Americans are important! We are the true color & lifestyle blind citizens. We don’t care if your gay, transgendering, converting or whatever else you can do just don’t rub it in our faces and force the USA to change for 3% of the population!

  • Micawber

    Wait a second RS – your summary of what has happened here is missing something:  we have evidence that the Administration knowingly lied to the American people by fabricating and pushing a narrative about a video being at the bottom of this.

    • http://www.therightscoop.com/ therightscoop

      Micawber That’s kinda wrapped up in the talking points scandal. I wasn’t trying to do a full detailed narrative of what happened. Just a few major highlights.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    Okay, I’ll play devil’s advocate. 
    Why woul Al Qaeda forces attack the Benghazi consulate if they were running arms to the Syrian rebels, since the Syrian rebels are in fact mostly Al Qaeda affiliates?  You would think they would do whatever they could to not attack the Benghazii consulate, no? 
    And so what if we were runniong arms to the Syrian rebels?  Everyone and their mother knows were arming the rebels in Syria.  It’s in the news all the time. 
    I guess I’m trying to find the point to this angle?

    • njmom

      Conservative_Hippie IMO if Obama was running weapons to AlQaeda its aiding and abetting the enemy which is treason. Second, I heard this was a staged kidnapping gone bad; Stevens for the Blind Sheikh at the request of the Muslim Brotherhood.

      • Political Pugilist

        njmom Conservative_Hippie Yeah, I have heard both those things. Gun running seemed more likely, but who knows with these callous criminals.

      • Conservative_Hippie

        njmom, there is no if, Obama is running arms to Al Qaeda.  It’s just being done in the name of “Syrian rebels”.  Which is why it’s not a bigger story.  Of course we know better. 
        The kidnapping angle makes more sense to me.  That would be huge, if true!

        • njmom

          Conservative_Hippie To me it is the more difficult to prove but you’re right it would be huge. To boot, I heard it was Obama and Clinton involved.

        • Conservative_Hippie

          Agreed!  Obama and Hilary are in cahoots, whatever it is!

    • Amjean

      There are two different scenarios going on.  I read  that the running of weapons to Syrian rebels through Turkey was going on through the consulate.  We are arming the Syrian rebels in order to take out Assad and put in the Muslim Brotherhood.  Russia is backing Assad.  Therefore we are involved in a proxy war with Russia for the control of Syria….or something similar to that.  This makes some sense because Obama has cooperated, if you will, in the Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt, for instance.
      There was a rumor that the CIA was holding prisoners in the compound and these Al Quaeda operatives were trying to rescue them.  There was also a rumor that this was a set up of sorts; a botched kidnapping of Ambassador Stevens in which he would be traded for the release of the Blind Sheik.  Lots of rumors, for sure.
      Again, repubs and citizens need to keep the pressure on so the truth will come out.  One thing for sure; this cover up for whatever reasons is so obvious that it is for something big and illegal.
      And all this done right before the election.  Anything to get Obama elected.

      • Conservative_Hippie

        Amjean, if I may use your post to express some of my confusion, since you labeled most of the scenerios.
        1.  Running weapons to Syrian rebels.  Like I said above, we already know that Obam is arming Syrian rebels.  I don’t see the conspiracy in this.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like us arming the Syrian rebels, since many of them are associated with Al Qaeda, but we know that already. It doesn’tr answer the question to me of why they lied to the American public. 
        2.  Control of Syria and the Muslim Brotherhood.  Obviously Egypts riots put the Muslim Brotherhood at the helm, but I find it hard to belive that Obama would be anointing the Muslim Brotherhood to take over control of Syria.  I think Obama wants Assad out of power more than anything else.  Again this does not answer the “Whys” of Benghazi.
        3.  Prisoners at the Compound.  If I understand the story correctly, the Consulate did not have armed security.  Why would we be holding prisoners by unarmed security?  That doesn’t make sense.
        4.  A botched kidnapping of the Ambassador.  Maybe, but it still doesn’t answer the question of why we didn’t send the military in to assist.
        5.  Suppressing the Benghazi attack so Obama could get elected.  This is probably the one that make sthe most sense to me of everything I’ve heard, but it doesn’t leave me satisfied.
        My conclusion.  We don’t know the heart of this Benghazio story.  My hunch is something runs deep and the public, if or when they find out, will make Watergate look like a picnic in the park.

        • 57thunderbird

          Conservative_Hippie All very good observations my friend.

        • Conservative_Hippie

          Thank you :-)  I’m just trying to makje sense of this all.

        • 57thunderbird

          Conservative_Hippie Me too!I suspected arms flow,but your point of why would Al-Qaeda stop that gave me pause.

        • PoCoTex

          Conservative_Hippie4. Why didn’t we send the military in to assist? How about this one for size? BHO is so beholden to Saudi Arabia that he will try to avoid actions which end up making it look like he’s fighting Muslims. Remember, 
          1) The rumour is that a Saudi prince financed his university education.
          2) As president, he bowed to a Saudi leader.
          3) At the UN, he said, “The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
          So BHO is the one who pulled the plug on military intervention.

        • nosilasunny

          There are so many layers to this corrupt cover up, it makes it hard to digest and process it all. I have a suspicion we’ve only scartched the surface and are in for many more twists and turns.

        • PoCoTex

          nosilasunny   I agree. That’s what happens when traitors are at the helm of a country’s government.
          That’s also why we need honest, objective media! They’re the only ones that have no vested interest in hiding the whole sordid mess.
          Or maybe Obama has somehow been able to compromise the main-stream media, especially the New York Times? Maybe?

        • Conservative_Hippie

          “he will try to avoid actions which end up making it look like he’s fighting Muslims”
          -Interesting point,  agreed!

        • Conservative_Hippie

          yup!

        • Amjean

          I have read a lot on this subject, and while I do not profess to know all the facts, I will further share in my thoughts:
          1.  Obama and Clinton told the American people that they were in Libya to collect and destroy weapons.  However, they have been taking those weapons and destroying the ones that are inoperable, etc. with great photo ops of same, while shipping the “good, operable” weapons out of Libya, through the port of the city of Dernah(sp), 100 miles east of Benghazi, to set in staging areas in Turkey near the Syrian border.  These weapons were used by the Free Syrian Army and other groups for the intention of destabilizing the Assad government.  While Assad is no prize, he is better than the Muslim Brotherhood. 
          2.  Benghazi is not and has not been a diplomatic location.  It housed a large CIA operation in a somewhat residential area.
          3.  Russia is an ally of Syria and also uses one of their ports for oil distribution.  They, of course, do not want the Assad govt. toppled.  They do not want the Muslim Brotherhood installed as the govt.  They want to keep this port opened because exporting oil is a main source of income.  Why do you think Putin is so cold to Obama and Kerry?  Putin made Kerry wait for approximately 30-60 minutes prior to having a meeting with him.  They know what Obama and Clinton have been up to.  There are some that think the Obama White House is using the US military to do the war work of the Saudi government.  Not as far fetched as one might initially believe.
          4.  In the White House visitor register the Muslim Brotherhood have been frequent visitors.  That means nothing on the surface, however, can be used as a means to connect the dots.
          5.  There is a guy called Daniel Hageman (I think that is how it is spelled) who has written some great articles on Benghazi.  See if you can find them on the web.
          Regardless, something nefarious has been going on that Obama and Clinton don’t want the American public to know about.  And all these ridiculous lies they have told underscore how serious and damaging to them it probably is.

        • PoCoTex

          Amjean  About your point 5, the chap you mentioned is Daniel Hagmann and he wrote a three-part article in Canada Free Press entitled “Benghazi Explained”:

          http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/51346
          What drives me nuts is that he wrote these articles back in November 2012. It’s taken Congress six months just to get to the “what happened”!!

          I’m hoping and praying they’ll get to the why, if they have the cojones.
          As far as “something nefarious” concerned, see my comments above about Turkey’s Erdogan and his goal of setting up a caliphate with Obama.

        • Conservative_Hippie

          Amjean Thanks I also agree 100% with your conclusion!

        • Conservative_Hippie

      Conservative_Hippie Great observation/deduction.

  • Amjean

    One can only think that Geraldo knows that the cover up is failing, that the truth is coming out regardless of the lies of the lefties and the lamestream media; that Geraldo wants to be in front of the line on this issue, not in the back.  Many of us have read about these details months ago and have been waiting impatiently for the media to investigate and report.
    Geraldo is nothing if not an opportunist.
    After his Al Capone empty safe debacle whereby he is still somewhat of a laughing stock, I would think he would be careful about latching on to these conspiracy theories, however they may be true.  Therefore, I take it as a good sign that he is bringing this information up.  Of course, there may be something else going on and I could be wrong!

        I recall reading about this last Fall.  The CIA had set up a “clandestine” weapons transfere site there working with the Turks to send Libyan weapons to the Syrian rebels.
        Off Topic

        We need to understand one of the things going on in Syria is a battle between Turkey (who are looking to get their empire back or at least become the dominate power in the area) and Iran, who see Syria as an Iranian outpost in the the Sunni world.  And it gets even more complicated from there. Why the Saudis are involved..why we have people on the ground inside Syria (Have no proof, but nothing would surprise me less than SOCom people working there….etc.

        The thing we need to get our heads around is in this part of the world (actually most parts of the world) is there are no or very very few “Good Guys” only varying degrees of bad guys.

        • lawngreen

          Valin I agree, and we need to leave the bad guys to kill each other, with their own weapons, and without any “foreign aid” from us at all.

        • Valin

          lawngreen
          The problem is they don’t just kill each other. How many hours does it take to fly from (say) Beirut to Denver? We walked away from Afghanistan after the Soviets left…how did that work out?
          The world has become a much smaller interconnect place, particularly in the last 50 years…and it is only going to become more so. A war in Chechnya, and people die and are maimed in Boston.  Oil tankers dump their waste ballast off the coast of Somalia and the price of your gas goes up….and on and on and on.
          It’s a small world after all…and not in the way Walt Disney meant.

          “And don’t forget that Russia is backing Iran”
          A couple of very quick points on this
          A. Russian has always looked with lust in their hearts at The Gulf, ever since the days of the Czar
          B. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Make no mistake the Russians (in spite of some cooperation) still look at America as an enemy.  
          C. They want their old Empire back again and we are standing in the way. 
          D. Iran is fighting Turkey for control of the area. Russia has always considered Turkey as an enemy. 

          History History History…you have to know the history to really understand what is going on with this.

  • deTocqueville1

    This has always been the thesis (rumour). So now Geraldo is on side investigating. What an ambulence chaser!

  • PoCoTex

    I just finished watching Glenn Beck and here’s a scenario I think explains the whole picture. Until now, everything has been fragmented and unexplained, until it dawned on me what is happening and why:

    1. Erdogan wants to establish a new, world-class caliphate from Morocco all the way around to Turkey, including all the Muslim countries of Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Morocco, Libya, Egypt, Turkmenistan, Pakistan, etc., a monster new Ottoman Empire (which was originally where Turkey is today). He also wants to eliminate that pesky little problem called Israel.

    2. Erdogan has promised Obama a top position in this new, world-powerful caliphate and, through Obama, is using the might and power of the U.S. to get there. Don’t forget, Erdogan and Obama talk frequently.

    3. Obama wants the new caliphate to become a world power, so he’s undermining the U.S. and its economy to push it into becoming a non-threat to the new caliphate once it’s established. Or at the very least, make it a partner.

    4. Gadaffi was refusing to go along with Erdogan and so got in Erdogan’s way. Erdogan and Obama got rid of him.
    5. Assad is in Erdogan’s way. Assad wants to keep his “throne”. That’s why Obama has helped supply weapons to the Syrian “opposition” and why Erdogan hates Assad. The occasional problem like Benghazi will crop up from time to time.
    Sound plausible?

Maybe these “dogs” all are just little yapping chihuahuas but now there’s three of them, each lifting a leg on the yellow prince’s creased pants, all at the same time. Dance, Barry, dance!

      wallwatchman The million dollar question; where were they???? We might (might) have had a different outcome. The media is complicit in the deaths of those four Americans. They aided and abetted the crimes of this administration.

    I think Beck missed one. John Brennan (newly appointed CIA director) was in charge of the operation that the Benghazi CIA station operatives were conducting which was the securing of the Libyan weapons that were being shipped to Syria.
    Somebody in this administration has a lot to answer for, and it all starts from the top.
    What is happening in the middle east begins to make sense if you follow Walid Shoebat’s thesis on their role in the end times as described in the Book of Revelations.

        Pay attention! You might not believe, but the Muslims do, and they are following the Bible’s script almost to the letter. A broad scope of reading resources and knowledge is preferred to a narrow scope which can leave you staring at a tree and not realizing that you are in the middle of a forest.

    I know this about scandals of this magnitude. I opened a bad can of lima beans once and brother the stench and the flowing of rot out of that can is something. That can to me represents Benghazi. We know there is corrupt geo politics at play in that region of the world and i believe it eventualy ends up badly for everyone described in the last book of the Holy Bible.

    TRS – this is not ineptitude. 
    This is bold and arrogant disregard for the law. Pure evil. When it went wrong they threw their henchman, and anyone who came to his rescue, to the  wolves.
    Everyone is expendable to this monster and the evil that props him up.
    We have long and dangerously abandoned our most sacred duty as citizens if we continue to ignore and make excuses for the government that we elected, who disposes of our military troops and foreign post security, with impunity.

    Maybe Mr. Mustache is finally realizing, like O’ Reilly, that Obama is not what people hoped he would be. His administration may be the most corrupt ever. Even the media may find it hard to stick by him as the Titanic goes down.

    Geraldo was covering Obama’s butt back in September.  From what I recall he made fun of the likes of Beck claiming all of those things months ago.  Now he’s ready to go after Obama and Hilary and the rest?  I reaaly can’t stand this progressive windbag.  It’s time for him to retire and sail off into the sunset.  We could have used what little investigative reporting he had left him way back in September and October.

    How many layers of scandal will there end up being in Benghazi? First, we have the talking points being altered to cover up the ineptitude of the Obama administration. Then we have stand down orders that were issues to prevent any military aid from helping our people in harms way. We have the State Dept. demoting Greg Hicks for questioning the misinformation being given by the administration.
    And Scoup, I would like to add this puts the lie to the idea the Ambassador was there to establish a new permanent post. Shine the bright light of truth on this woman and her special breed of government planners.

    • PoCoTex

      CLRoemke You’re not kidding about how many layers of scandal. I just read a comment by “gingercake5″ in the National Review Online article called “The Benghazi Lie” by Mark Steyn:
      This scandal goes way deeper and uglier. Stevens was gun running major
      war weapons to the Syrian rebels to fight against Assad. He was supposed
      to be kidnapped and traded for the long-imprisoned blind sheik, just
      before the election. O[bama] would have been a hero. But Stevens was not
      supposed to have security. They were all ordered to leave, but the 2
      Seals disobeyed orders, and stayed to protect Stevens. The surprised
      kidnappers fired back, and O’s charade was ruined. They could not send
      in rescuers or the whole thing would be revealed. Well, it will be now. I
      hope that the House has the cojones to start the impeachment.
      Given how political Obama is, this explanation makes a lot of sense.
      If this is true, then it would add yet more reason to impeach Obama now.

    Months ago Rand Paul asked Hillary Clinton if she knew anything about shipping arms out of Benghazi with Turkish aid, and Hillary claimed she didn’t know what he was talking about. I bet she certainly did and the truth about this is going to come out real soon. Don’t be surprised if you get a few CIA whistleblowers coming forward to say that this was why Stephens was in Benghazi in the first place. This is just going to get worse for Hillary and Obama over the next few months.

    Muslim see, Muslim do. We have a Muslim in the White House. Why would we expect anything different – a sympathetic attitude for the Muslim mindset and actions, as tyrannical and evil as they are is Obama’s  M.O. His ally is not the citizenry of the United States, but the Islamic evil that seeks to terrorize everything it touches. I have yet to see an Islamic soup kitchen !

    I still want to smack Geraldo upside the head when he said Petraius was “exaggerating”. No Geraldo, it’s call LYING and democrats do it every time they open their mouths.

  • JohnCraven

    Those of us who follow The Right Scoop have been up to snuff for many moons on Nero Obama’s Fast and Furious II Operation with shoulder-fired missiles being shipped to Syrian rebels and other jihadist terrorists in the Middle East from Benghazi through Turkey and beyond.  Almost like a very perverted “knock-off” of the James Bond classic, “From Russia With Love” which centered in Instanbul.
    Of course, Glenn Beck and FOXNews were all over this back in October while the lamestream stenographers of the state-run media could not be found anywhere on this, as well as, Obama zombies like Geraldo who at least seems to have awoken at least for a little while from his zombie like trance when it comes to all things Obama.  He has been afterall one of FOXNews’ “knock-offs” of Chris Matthews as Rush might say.  Geraldo and Shepard Smith and Juan Williams and, sometimes, Bill O’Reilly, have been the most notorious Nero Obama-roids at FOXNews.
    If Geraldo has truly awaken from his Nero Obama coma, maybe he might realize that all of this adds up to high crimes and treason on the part of the “Dear Leader”, the lord, messiah, the Ayattollah Imam Obama, the most merciful.

    • tsturbo

      JohnCraven Exactly. The evidence indicates that, going backward, Obama illegally used our Military to kill Gaddafi for the primary objective of spreading the Islamic Caliphate, exactly like he did in Egypt. The secondary objective was to round up, buy off, steal etc. the huge stockpiles of weapons that Gaddafi had stockpiled and get them to Syria for the Muslim Brotherhood radicals to use to…spread the Islamic Caliphate! This is so simple even an Obama voter could understand it. Heck, if you have the courage to look at the evidence and see the truth,, Obama himself was trained (with the involvement of our enemies, foreign and domestic) to advance the Islamic Caliphate on the United States.

      • JohnCraven

        tsturbo, you may be just getting a little bit carried away with saying that “even an Obama voter could understand it” but otherwise you’ve covered the bases very well.  Even if an Obama voter did understand the question has to be asked “Would they care?”!
        Hmmmmm! Maybe.  Then again maybe not.
        John Craven – New Orleans

    • MarciGrayPorter

      JohnCraven The only reason I can figure why the media is suddenly appearing to have concern over Benghazi is that they have decided that Hillary is worth more, and the useful narcissistic tool Obama is done. The Obama admin is doing it’s level best to shovel the blame back to her solely, and you don’t piss off a Clinton  to this extent and get away with it. I think the Dems are out to protect (and run her in 16) her at all costs and have now been given the green light to toss him to the wolves.

      • JohnCraven

        MarciGrayPorter, perhaps it is what you say.  Perhaps it’s just good ole honor amongst thieves.
        However, when the mother of the murdered info officer, Sean, was on tv this weekend and wished her lowness Hillary a Happy Mother’s Day and said at least you get to celebrate mother’s day with your daughter but because of you actions I won’t be able to celebrate it with my son who died because of you – I think you could see her lowness’ presidential aspirations vanish before your eyes as should be for such a low-life as her Lowness Hillary.

    The smell of rotting dead fish is very strong here. Very alluring. I liked it. Upon arriving, I found that the odor of this overflowing sewer to be too much even for me. But I need a place to take as shit, and this page still seemed appropriate. It will cleanse a very small portion of the stench for a few minutes. If I stay too long I’ll regurgitate my last meal, and it took forever for Matthew Broderick to to find that many dead fish. You all are a genetic experiment gone horribly wrong, and should not be allowed to breed. Please use condoms. You would think that after millions of years encased in a block of ice I would not be so choosy About where I dine, But even I cannot stomach thjis.”
