Attorney for Whistleblower:
400 U.S. Missiles Stolen in Benghazi

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by AWR Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/13/2013 12:39:09 AM

On August 12, 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."

Comments:
Pretty soon the waters won´t be muddied by the innocents killed by these weapons, but bloodied.

The CIA running guns is no big surprise to me,the real question is why Obama vanished right before the attack so he couldn´t give rescue orders? Why did they create the phony scandal of the web video?

The rodeo clown and the folks in the stands deserve a medal of honor.

I bet there was more weapons than just the missiles that were stolen. This stuff is dripping out bit by bit and it gets more & more disgusting with each new revelation. It´s obvious the fix was in when Obama ordered the stand down and let our people get slaughtered to allow this terrorist-benefiting theft to occur. He & Hillary knew exactly what was transpiring during the attack.

Benghazi is a scandal and cover-up of major proportions. Democrats are desperately trying to distance Hillary from this. Hopefully they will fail. She is into it up to her neck.

The benghazi cover-up is vast and detailed. Its depth includes endless lies, stonewalling, witness tampering, and the appearance of a concocted hillary medical emergency. State run media is fully engaged in the cover-up and in the cover-up of the cover-up. Count me among skeptics who believe the democrats won´t face any consequences for benghazi crimes.

Ah. Now things are getting clearer.

I heard that the mission was ´BUYING´ missiles to keep them out of the wrong hands. Apparently, the State Dept gave out missiles that they never should have. And, the CIA went in to buy them back.

Richard "Mack" Machowitz was our morning talker on KSEV. He was known for "Future Weapons" amongst other shows on TV and a former SEAL. Within one or two weeks of the event last September he was talking about this being what "Benghazi" was about. It took 11 months for the story to catch up to him.

Why were 400 missiles ´diverted to Libya´?

Obama´s Arab Spring is turning into a nuclear Winter for him if the truth comes out about Benghazi. Hillary is hip deep in the intrigue and mayhem. May both of them be brought down in flames. The decision to ignore pleas for additional security and then ultimately rescue must be devastating to those serving in dangerous situations. Putting politics before personnel is as cold blooded as it comes.

Early on, I saw a report that suggest this was the reason behind the Benghazi attack. I thought it made the most sense.

It further suggested that the State department was behind giving the missiles to the rebels while the CIA opposed that move, as being too dangerous.

Amb. Stevens was in Benghazi to buy back the missiles.

Such a bone-headed move by the State Dept (if true) would damage any presidential prospects by Hillary Clinton.

This would explain two things:
The secrecy behind the operation.
Why there was no military response, given that the attackers were in control of missiles that could shoot down military aircraft.

What kind of missiles? Ground to air?

You might want to start thinking about driving everywhere instead of flying.

How many will be smuggled into the USA to Islamofascist mosques and "training camps" and then to locations around American airports to start shooting down American airliners.

Will this be TWA 800 redux?

Will the Republicans get their teeth into
this or will it fade away a la Fast & Furious?

Maybe it will take the tragedy of a commercial airliner being shot down by one of the missiles to give them some guts.

Then again,if an airliner is shot down, the
Democrats will whine that "how do we know
that the missile was one of those stolen."
It´ll be another "At this point, what
difference does it make."

We need to see the tape played over and over of Rand Paul asking Hillary specifically if she knew anything about arms sent to Turkey.. she tried her best to avoid by saying.. "That is the first I have been asked about that", implying that asking is the same as knowing the answer. Fortunately, Paul, and I hope some more, are getting good at following up with a more specific question.. and said.. "So you know nothing about arms to Turkey"? and she had to say "no". Lie (I think she was under oath)

Those who think this will prevent Hillary from running in 2016 are wrong. For liberal democrats and squishy, clueless "independents" it doesn´t matter what Hillary or any other lib does. They will still back them and vote for them in 2016. The press will back her and write it off as a learning experience begat of a true diplomat. That and George Bush killed thousands upon thousands.

FTA: Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) suggested that one of the causes behind the terrorist attack "may have been that there was a gun running operation going on in Benghazi, leaving Libya and going to Turkey and [distributing] arms to the [Syrian] rebels."

The gun running part wouldn´t be the first time this lawless Administration and its associated bureaucrats engaged in that kind of thing. By now it´s their M.O.

Drug kingpin "Chapo" Guzman stoked the Sinaloa Cartel´s already bulging arsenals with guns "walked" over the border, leading to the deaths of at least two American law enforcement officers and hundreds of other deaths south of the border.

How hard would it be for some of those MANPADS (surface to air heat-seeking anti-aircraft missiles) to be smuggled into Mexico then carried over the border? If one civilian airliner--let alone several--were shot down in American state(s), air traffic would just about cease. People and packages would have to find a ground route. Most citizens don´t realize just how serious a threat like this would be, and how draconian the punishments would have to be for the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party, which have consistently resisted efforts to harden the border. There are millions of "undocumented Democrats" just waiting for their Motor Voter supplied voter registration cards. Now it seems certain that al-Qa´eda has its hands on combat rifles and, much worse, Stinger type missiles. The Administration and the Democratic party en masse deserve to be keelhauled if American airliners start getting shot down. And the MSM that greased the path to these atrocities should join them under the ship´s keel.

The most confusing thing to me in all of this has been the number of CIA people involved in the apparent cover up. Why would they defend Obama and Clinton? But if they were trying to recover weapons given by State, then it makes more sense. And all the more reason they should eventually talk.

Perhaps #40 the CIA has been set up to take the the hit in another attempt to redo the Frank Church destruction of that agency along with the FBI. Forcing those agents to go underground may be the biggest mistake of the Hillary /Barry tag team. Once completely deep under that team would have no way to control or stop a private take down of them.
Is this another reason for Obe´s frantic attempts to recover Snowden?

Twelve gold bars removed

Yahoo!7 [Australia], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/19/2014 1:29:05 AM     Post Reply
Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

Obama administration puts off
decision on Keystone oil pipeline
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

Washington - The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely. In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline´s path through the state.

Washington - The National Archives on Friday released its largest batch yet of previously withheld documents from the Clinton administration, with topics including the conflicts in Somalia and Rwanda, Middle East peace negotiations, the Oklahoma City bombing and public figures as varied as Richard M. Nixon and Oprah Winfrey. The bundle that is likely to receive the most attention, though, is one that covers Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ill-fated attempt as first lady to overhaul the health care system. Mrs. Clinton, who ran for president in 2008, is considering a second attempt in 2016. Here are some notable sections:

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

GM to seek court protection
against ignition lawsuits
Reuters, by Jessica Dye    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/16/2014 6:01:10 PM     Post Reply
General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
