Truth about Benghazi

                    The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday concerns the importance of the truth about the Benghazi attack.   Our Savior, even Jesus the Christ, taught in New Testament times:  "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32).  In our day the Lord described truth as the "knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come" (Doctrine and Covenants 93:24).  In other words, truth about things in the past, in the present, and in the future will make us free.

                    On September 11, 2012, terrorists attacked a CIA operation center in Libya and killed four Americans, including our Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.  The Obama Administration lied about this murderous event from the very beginning.  They first told us that the attack was the result of a spontaneous mob demonstrating against a video.  The administration has backtracked from the story since facts started leaking out, but they continue in their attempt to cover up the truth.

                    At least dozens - maybe hundreds or even thousands - of people know the truth about what happened in Benghazi, and some of them are leaking information.  Most of them face some difficult decisions because they are employed by the very people they are trying to expose.  Doug Hagmann interviewed  "a government insider intimately familiar with the events that took place in Benghazi" and shared the information given to him in the first part of a "multi-part interview."  The interview "provides important background," and explains that this administration is engaged in a "massive cover-up." 

The source explains that the first lie given to the American public was the description of the location of the attack.  The administration called the location a "consulate" - meaning it was a place for diplomatic work and sovereign American soil; however, the location was actually "one of the largest, one of the most active CIA operation centers in North Africa, if not in the entire Middle East."

                    The second lie concerned the security or lack of security for the "consulate."  Ambassador Stevens was concerned about safety - not in Benghazi - but "for the embassy in Tripoli, the Ambassador and the diplomatic staff in general."  The rented villa housing the CIA operation center was located in a residential area where "visible security" "would draw unwanted attention."  The operation at this location was "already winding down" so "additional manpower was not needed there."

                    The third lie was about the mission that was taking place in Benghazi.  According to the Obama Administration, Americans were "in Libya to collect and destroy [the "weapons and arms" - "including chemical weapons - gas weapons"] in order to make Libya "safer." 

"What was really happening … is that we had people locating caches of weapons, separating the working from those that weren't, and making a big show of destroying the weapons, but only the weapons that were useless.  The working weapons were being given to Islamic terrorists.  They were being funneled through Libya, crisscrossing Libya on a Muslim Brotherhood managed strategic supply route.

"The entire arms and weapons running operation was headquartered in Benghazi.  The weapons were actually being shipped out of Libya from the port city of Dernah, located about a hundred miles east of Benghazi … ships carrying weapons hid among `humanitarian aid.' …
"From there, the weapons were being sent to staging areas in Turkey near the Syrian border, for use by the Free Syrian Army and other ragtag terrorist groups to fight against Assad.  The objective was and still is to destabilize the Assad government."

There is much more information in this portion of the interview with the source - information about why the United States is trying to destabilize Assad as well as who would benefit and who would have reason to stop the operation.  He suggested that Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Brotherhood would benefit from the destabilization of Assad and that Russia and China would have motivation to stop it.

Hagmann referenced an article written by Michael Reagan, son of President Ronald Reagan, which gives much background information on Ambassador Stevens - why he was selected to be our Ambassador to Libya and why he needed to be killed.  He also suggested Syria is Russia's "hidden tripwire for WWIII" - a war that will be fought economically rather than militarily.
The truth about what happened in Benghazi and why it is being covered up is slowing coming out.  One big question is, will the truth come out soon enough to protect our freedom?
