Was the attack on Benghazi an “October Surprise” gone bad?
I believe that somehow, because of all the unanswered questions there…because of the unbelievably chaotic and rushed manner in which the Obama administration tried to cover it up…and continued to cover it up well past all rational thinking would indicate that they were doing ss…and because of just common sense questions, questions like:
Why were new security requests for Benghazi denied after two recent attacks, one by an IEDin June that left a 40ft whole in the wall?
Why were the security teams they had in Benghazi removed in August, just a few weeks before the attack?
Why was a U.S. Ambassador who had indicated he feared for his life and was seeking more security, sent to Benghazi, the hotbed for anti-Americanism, on the 11th Anniversyary of 911 (and the 11th anniversary of any event in Islam is considered “Holy”) with no US security team?
Why did 12 command centerss watch the attack on Benghazi unfold for SIX HOURS and not mount a relief attempt from Tripoli with helos, or from potential US NAvy vessels in the Med? A helo traveling at 150 MPH can go a good distance in 6 hours, so can an F-18 traveling at Mach 1.
Finally, what was the relationship of Ambassador Stevens to the Gitmo releasess and groups he was heading during the Libyan revolution when Stevens was the USenvoy working with these groups? Was Stevens secretly sent there to meet with those groups? Was the whole thing a setup?
Could it be (either through Libyan government sources, or even our own) that the terrorists knew that the security had been taken away in Benghazi? I believe they hoped to kidnap the Ambassador in an easy smash and grab operation against an essentially undefended compound and then try and negotiate a trade; Stevens for the blind shiek.
Tragically, there very well could have been people in our own government who knew about all of this.
Could it be that………….
