Judicial Watch Obtains Smoking Guns on Benghazi

Before the Benghazi terror attack that killed four Americans including an ambassador, Hillary Clinton’s State Department refused requests for increased security. As it unfolded, she and Obama made themselves scarce. Afterward, they claimed that it was not a terror attack but a “spontaneous demonstration” provoked by some obscure anti-Islam video out of California. Their reaction was to throw the film maker in prison, and for Obama to proclaim before the United Nations that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” Only grudgingly did they admit that it was in fact a well-coordinated terror attack. Yet look what the government watchdog Judicial Watch has found:

Judicial Watch announced [Monday] that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR), and had been planned at least 10 days in advance. Rahman is known as the Blind Sheikh, and is serving life in prison for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other terrorist acts. The new documents also provide the first official confirmation that shows the U.S. government was aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria. The documents also include an August 2012 analysis warning of the rise of ISIS and the predicted failure of the Obama policy of regime change in Syria.

We have officially reached the point where no reasonable American could want the brazen liars Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton in a position of responsibility.

A Defense Department document from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), dated September 12, 2012, the day after the Benghazi attack, details that the attack on the compound had been carefully planned by the BOCAR terrorist group “to kill as many Americans as possible.” The document was sent to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Obama White House National Security Council. The heavily redacted Defense Department “information report” says that the attack on the Benghazi facility “was planned and executed by The Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman (BCOAR).” The group subscribes to “AQ ideologies” …

The DOD documents also contain the first official documentation that the Obama administration knew that weapons were being shipped from the Port of Benghazi to rebel troops in Syria.

These “rebel troops” no doubt included some of the maniacs currently crucifying Christians on an industrial scale under the black flag of ISIS on land that had only recently been liberated at great cost in terms of blood and treasure by the USA.

Another DIA report, written in August 2012 (the same time period the U.S. was monitoring weapons flows from Libya to Syria), said that the opposition in Syria was driven by al Qaeda and other extremist Muslim groups: “the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.” The growing sectarian direction of the war was predicted to have dire consequences for Iraq, which included the “grave danger” of the rise of ISIS.

Seventeen months before Obama dismissed ISIS as a JV team, he was receiving intelligence predicting its rise. From the DIA report:

The deterioration of the situation has dire consequences on the Iraqi situation and are as follows:

This creates the ideal atmosphere for AQI [al Qaeda Iraq] to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi, and will provide a renewed momentum under the presumption of unifying the jihad among Sunni Iraq and Syria, and the rest of the Sunnis in the Arab world against what it considers one enemy, the dissenters. ISI could also declare an Islamic state through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory.

It’s not as if no one saw the horror coming. But hey, Obama had golf to play. Plus he doesn’t seem to be sure whose side to take anyway.

Some of the “dire consequences” are blacked out but the DIA presciently warned one such consequence would be the “renewing facilitation of terrorist elements from all over the Arab world entering into Iraqi Arena.”

This was an especially like scenario given that Obama had prematurely withdrawn US troops, creating an irresistible power vacuum.

A State Department document pried loose through a separate lawsuit makes clear that no one was talking about the video and supposedly spontaneous demonstration that they sent the pathetic Susan Rice out to the Sunday news shows to blather about. That whole narrative was not a misunderstanding but a deliberately contrived lie — an attempt to blame Islamic terrorism on the critics of Islam.

“These documents are jaw-dropping. No wonder we had to file more FOIA lawsuits and wait over two years for them. If the American people had known the truth – that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other top administration officials knew that the Benghazi attack was an al-Qaeda terrorist attack from the get-go – and yet lied and covered this fact up – Mitt Romney might very well be president. And why would the Obama administration continue to support the Muslim Brotherhood even after it knew it was tied to the Benghazi terrorist attack and to al Qaeda? These documents also point to connection between the collapse in Libya and the ISIS war – and confirm that the U.S. knew remarkable details about the transfer of arms from Benghazi to Syrian jihadists,” stated Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president. “These documents show that the Benghazi cover-up has continued for years and is only unraveling through our independent lawsuits. The Benghazi scandal just got a whole lot worse for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”

However, the base supporters of Obama and Shrillary are unlikely to be appalled even now, so long as they can keep the wealth redistribution running in high gear and stick their thumbs in the eyes of regular Americans.
