Why would the Obama administration spend two weeks parroting a ridiculous story about a “protest turned violent” because of an anti-Muslim YouTube video being the cause of the attack on the Benghazi consulate?
Why would they then spend a month blaming the CIA for bad intel?
Why would they then comb through a former four-star general’s, then CIA-chief Petraeus’ email to “uncover” an adulterous affair that apparently everyone—including Obama—already knew about?
Fox News has been reporting that Obama, through Christopher Stevens, had been shipping Libyan arms to the Syrian rebels, some of them linked to al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Was this the reason Obama has been turning his administration into a pretzel trying to explain why he blamed a YouTube video for the murder of four Americans?
Was this the reason he refused to send in air or ground support to the dozens of Americans under fire, where Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods begged for help for upwards of seven hours and were eventually slaughtered?
Or was it something more?
What if it was the Fast and Furious debacle all over again, but this time in the Middle East and North Africa?
What if Barack Hussein Obama supplied the weapons to the al-Qaeda-linked group Ansar al-Sharia that murdered the Americans in Benghazi?
And if he would have sent in troops to help the Americans under attack at the Benghazi consulate and CIA safe house, it would have been discovered that the weapons had been supplied by the United States.
According to a New York Times article published yesterday that admits Obama-sanctioned weapons got into the hands of jihadists—and the article appears to be chocked full of leaked information from the White House in order to control the explosion of some new revelation—this in fact may be the case.
The New York Times, like a prim schoolmarm, assures the reader, twice mind you—the first time in the second paragraph—that “no evidence has surfaced that any weapons went to Ansar al-Shariah, an extremist group blamed for the Benghazi attack.”
Why are they so sure of this?
Well, they don’t say.
They do seem to know the name of the American arms dealer—Marc Turi—who brokered the arms deal.
They do seem to know that Obama officials secretly met with Qatar officials who were steeped in supplying Islamic extremists with weapons.
They do seem to know information that could only have come from Barack Obama himself.
Is there anything this President doesn’t have his fingers in?
It’s like Chicago in the Twenties and Thirties all over again!
We should call Obama the Al Capone of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!
