Former Congressman Allen West Says A Secret Source Told Him What Really Happened at Benghazi
Former Florida Congressman Allen West says that a secret, inside source has given him the inside info on what really happened during the terrorist attacks at Benghazi, Libya that ended up killing four Americans including our Libyan ambassador. And if he really has the true “ground truth,” his charges are explosive, indeed.
On his website, Colonel West says that he met a man on a recent flight who gave him the inside info on the attacks that terrible day.
I learned about the proximity of the staging area of the attack to the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, and the attackers were indeed Ansar al-Sharia, a group affiliated with al-Qaida. I came to understand why Ambassador Chris Stevens was there in the first place and that he had in fact requested better security but was denied — the question is, by whom? And I learned that the Martyrs of 17 February Brigade were in charge of security and were the ones who opened the gates, then fled.
I learned there are those who are being threatened with their pensions being cut off if they come forth to speak.
And I learned, as I presumed, that there was a covert weapons scheme going on in Libya, Benghazi. We had been supplying radical Islamists with weapons against Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi, effectively supplying the enemy and destabilizing that country. And it seems that there was a CIA weapons buy-back program, the aim of which was to ship the retrieved weapons out of Libya through Turkey, and to the Islamist forces in Syria.
Benghazi and the operations in Libya are shrouded in a fog of lies, deceit, manipulation, threats, intimidation, coercion, abandonment, and worst of all, potentially treason.
If this was yet another Obama gun running scheme, and this time meant to benefit our sworn enemies–radical Islamists–this is a terrible thing, for sure.
