The terrorist attacks on Americans in Benghazi are still in the news because various Americans refuse to let the matter drop. The latest results come from the relentless pursuit for truth by Judicial Watch (JW) and the many Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits. JW announced two days ago that it had “obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified `Secret’ documents from the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of State” in response to a court order. The papers reveal 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.”
The August 2012 analysis referred to above came three months before Barack Obama was reelected to the office of President of the United States. The attack in Benghazi happened two months prior to the election. The information about both was obviously buried in an effort to help his prospects.
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, stated: “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…. 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.”
I am grateful for people like Tom Fitton and organizations like Judicial Watch that continue to fight for the truth. Richard Nixon was forced to resign because of his attempt to cover up Watergate, an illegal activity that caused no deaths. Why is Barack Obama still president after his cover-up actions on Benghazi?
