Roger L Simon of PJ Media is reporting that two new Benghazi whistleblowers will be coming forward shortly. They are now retaining lawyers, since their positions aren’t fully covered by the whistleblower law. And what they have to say will be devastating to both Obama and Clinton. Let’s hope they don’t step in front of a bus before they get a chance to testify.
The first area they will allegedly cover is what Ambassador Stevens was actually doing in Benghazi. He was supposedly there to buy back stinger missiles issued to them by the State Department. The State Department had supplied these weapons to Al Qaeda linked groups in order to overthrow Gadhafi the cheapest way possible. Stevens was supposed to try to buy them back. This is the type of operation that the CIA would normally handle, but the CIA refused because they thought it was too dangerous to put these weapons in the hands of America’s enemies. Hm, I guess they were right.
The attack on the embassy included members of Ansar Al Sharia, the same group supplied with stinger missiles, quite possibly used in the embassy attack. That makes sense and explains why Clinton and Obama tried to place the blame on the Internet film instead of terrorists. This revelation is devastating enough but further testimony could be even more damaging.
The second contention these whistleblowers claim to have knowledge of is the facts around General Ham’s part in the affair. They claim that General Ham had, through his AFRICOM Special Ops had, “assets in place that could have come to the aid of the Benghazi consulate immediately (not in six hours).” Ham was given orders by the White House not to relieve the Benghazi embassy and when he decided to disobey orders, the WH called his deputy and had him threaten to relieve Ham of his command, which could have led to charges and loss of his pension. Ham retired quietly in April.
One final claim was that the White House outed Petraeus’ affair, timed to silence him on the Benghazi affair. Again this is consistent with the narrative that the CIA had opposed the supplying of weapons to Al Qaeda. This could get real interesting, real fast.
