Barack Obama Needs to be Impeached and Hillary Clinton Indicted

Roger-Aronoff-2008Two brave Americans, Roger Aronoff and Tom Fitton, may have changed the history of our nation. These two patriots may have saved this country from the abyss created by the traitor who lives in the White House. Both of them have exposed the many crimes and cover-ups committed by President Barack Obama in Libya and Syria.
Roger Aronoff, Editor of Accuracy in Media, has worked as a journalist, television producer, director, writer and distributor. He has written, produced and direct the award-winning documentaries. Aronoff set up a powerful panel of distinguished high-ranking retired members of the Armed Forces, former CIA officers, and experts on defense and national security issues to investigate the United States involvement in the war in Libya, the gun-running operation from Libya to Turkey to Syria, the terrorist attack on Benghazi, and the subsequent cover-ups. After several months of arduous work the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi produced an alarming report entitled “How America Switched Sides in the War on Terror” which was published on April 22, 2014.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, heads an organization that promotes transparency, integrity and accountability tom fittonin government, politics and the law. He prepared a Special Investigative Report entitled “The Benghazi Attack of September 11, 2012 Analysis and Further Questions from a Diplomatic Security Service Regional Security Officer and Special Agent” which was published on January 22, 2013. This report included the analysis of Raymond Fournier, a recently retired diplomatic security service special agent with more than 30 years of experience.

Judicial Watch, similar to Aronoff’s Citizens Committee on Benghazi, opened its own investigation on the Benghazi terrorist attack. Judicial Watch employed its staff of investigators and researchers which included former intelligence officers, analysts, military officers, attorneys, and journalists. Judicial Watch initiated more than 10 Freedom of Information Act requests with various executive departments and agencies seeking all records related to the attack. The organization filed separate lawsuits in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia to compel the Obama administration to comply with the Freedom of Information Act law and release the records requested.

Judicial Watch announced on April 18, 2014, it obtained 41 new Benghazi- related State Department documents. The documents included an email showing then White House Deputy Strategic Communication Adviser Ben Rhodes and other of Obama administration public relations officials attempting to orchestrate a campaign to “reinforce” President Obama and to portray the Benghazi consulate terrorist attack as being “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy.” Other documents showed that State Department officials initially described the incident as an “attack” and a possible kidnap attempt.

The Obama administration fought to keep the Benghazi-related emails from seeing the light of day. However, the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed on June 21, 2013, by Judicial Watch was successful and Congress and the American people found out that the White House engaged in an illegal cover-up.

Ben RhodesBen Rhodes sent an email on September 14, 2012, to United States United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice to prepare her to lie to the American public on five Sunday television appearances. The goal of email sent by Ben Rhodes was “to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video”. Ben Rhodes stated the following: “We’ve made our views on this video crystal clear. The United States government has nothing to do with it. We reject its message and its contents. We find it disgusting and reprehensible. But it is absolutely no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence…”

The Ben Rhodes communications strategy email also included instructions to portray Obama as “steady and statesmanlike” throughout the crisis. President Obama behaved like a coward and committed criminal negligence for not helping our people at Benghazi. The day after the assassinations in Benghazi, he went to campaign in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to Ambassador Susan Rice, the email was sent to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Deputy Press Secretary Joshua Earnest and other high ranking members of the Obama White House.

Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on Sunday, September 16, 2012, on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News and CNN claiming the assaults occurred “spontaneously” in response to the “hateful video.” For willful and deliberately lying to the American people, Ambassador Susan Rice did not receive Senate confirmation when President Obama wanted to name her secretary of state following the resignation of Hillary Clinton.

susan riceSusan Rice was then named national security advisor at the White House. She should be indicted for lying to Congress which is a felony. Unfortunately, many high ranking officials of the Obama administration routinely lie to Congress and the American people. After all there is a president at the White House who is a pathological liar.
Tom Fitton stated on April 29, 2014 in a report the following: “Now we know the Obama White House’s chief concern about the Benghazi attack was making sure that President Obama looked good. And these documents undermine the Obama administration’s narrative that it thought the Benghazi attack had something to do with protest or an Internet video. Given the explosive material in these documents, it is no surprise that we had to go to federal court to pry them loose from the Obama State Department.”

Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi interim report entitled “How America Switched Sides in the War on Terror.”

A Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi was set up in September 2013 to investigate what happened at the  CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya. The members of the commission included former CIA officers, retired military from the different branches of the Armed Forces, journalists, and defense consultants.

Among the members are Roger Aronoff, editor of Accuracy in Media, Brigadier General Charles Jones (Ret.), Admiral James Lyons (Ret.), General Thomas McInerney (Ret.), former CIA officer Clare Lopez, former CIA officer Wayne Simmons, former CIA officer Kevin Shipp, General Paul Vallely (Ret.), former Congressman and Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.) Allen West, Captain Larry Bailey (SEAL Ret.), and John A. Shaw, former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for International Technology Security.

After many months of investigation and research which involved interviews with several knowledgeable sources, the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi issued on April 22, 2014 an interim report entitled “How America Switched Sides in the War on Terror.”

This is a summary of the alarming findings:

libya war“1) The war in Libya was unnecessary, served no articulable U.S. national security objective, and led to preventable chaos region-wide. In the period since 2011 revolution in Libya, the country has remained fragmented, poorly governed, and overrun with violent militias, the majority of which are jihadist al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) affiliates. Yet, at the time of his overthrow, Muammar Qaddafi was an ally of the United States in the Global War on Terror.

On March 17, 2011 the United Nations Security Council passed resolution 1973 for a “No Fly Zone,” and record ostensibly to protect Libyan civilians caught up in the hostilities between the Libyan government forces and the rebel forces, which were dominated by the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda. The following day in London, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced U.S. government support for the Muslim Brotherhood-led Libyan Transitional National Council (TNC) in its revolt against Qaddafi.”

The commission found out that the civil war in Libya could have been avoided and would have saved thousands of lives and the enormous turmoil that followed the fall of the dictator Muammar Qaddafi. After a few days of the Obama administration declaration that the United States would support the Libyan rebels, Qaddafi wanted to enter negotiations to discuss his possible abdication and exile.

On March 20, 2011 General Abdulqader Yusef Dibri, head of personal security of Qaddafi, contacted Rear Admiral (Ret.) Chuck Kubic. Upon receiving this information, Rear Admiral Kubic telephoned Lieutenant Colonel Brian Linvill in Stuttgart, Germany, the U.S. AFRICOM officer point of contact for all military matters involving Libya.
Lieutenant Colonel Linvill immediately notified the head of AFRICOM, General Carter Ham, stating that the Libyan dictator was ready to establish communication with the Africa military command. General Ham was quite interested. However, the Obama administration did not give permission to General Ham to proceed with the negotiations.

obama-biden-270x151The opportunity for a peaceful resolution of the conflict in Libya did not interest President Obama. The war continued and tens of thousands of lives were lost. It was absolutely appalling that the White House and the State Department did not even consider entering into negotiations with Qaddafi to avoid bloodshed since President Obama and Secretary Clinton wanted to pursue the unconstitutional and unnecessary war in Libya supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and the al Qaeda-linked rebels. Both Obama and Clinton need to explain to the American people and to Congress why both of them wanted to empower jihadists and the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya which went against the national security interest of our nation.

“2) Changing sides in the War on Terror: Even more disturbingly, the United States was fully aware of and facilitating the delivery of weapons to the al Qaeda-dominated rebel militias throughout the 2011 rebellion. The jihadist agenda of AQIM, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, and other Islamic terror groups represented among the rebel forces was well known to U.S. officials responsible for Libya policy.

libya_weapons_mw_110825_wgThe rebels made no secret of their al Qaeda affiliation, openly flying and speaking in front of the black flag of Islamic Jihad, according to author John Rosenthal and multiple media reports. And yet, the White House and senior Congressional members deliberately and knowingly pursued a policy that provided material support to terrorist organizations in order to topple a ruler who had been working closely with the West actively to suppress al Qaeda. The result in Libya, across much of North Africa, and beyond has been utter chaos, disruption of Libya’s oil industry, the spread of dangerous weapons (including surface-to-air missiles), and the empowerment of jihadist organizations like al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.”

“3) The weapons flow: An American citizen source trusted by the Citizens Commission on Benghazi who has long experience in the Middle East described the flow of weapons from Qatar to the Libyan rebels and the diversion of some of those arms. After Qaddafi’s regime had been ousted, a delegation from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) traveled to Libya to collect payment for the weapons that the UAE had financed and Qatar had delivered to the Transitional National Council (TNC) during the war.
During their visit to Tripoli, the UAE officials discovered that half of the $1 billion worth of weapons it had financed for the rebels had, in fact, been diverted by Mustafa Abdul Jalil, the Muslim Brotherhood head of the Libyan TNC, and sold to Qaddafi. Furthermore, according to information learned during the UAE visit to Tripoli, when Jalil learned that Major General Abdel Fatah Younis, Qaddafi’s former Minister of the Interior before his late February 2011 defection to the rebel forces, had found out about the weapons diversion, he ordered Abu Salim Abu Khattala… to kill him. Abu Khattala, later identified as the Ansar al-Shariah commander who led the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, accepted the order and directed the killing of General Abdel Fatah Younis in July 2011.

The key significance of this episode is a demonstration of a military chain-of-command relationship between the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood leadership of the TNC and the al Qaeda-affiliated militia (Ansar al-Shariah) that has been named responsible for the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. Ahmed Abu Khattala is under a Department of Justice sealed indictment. His brigade merged into Ansar al-Shariah in 2012, and he was positively identified to the FBI in a cell-phone photo from the scene of the attack.”

On June 15, 2014, Ahmed Abu Khattala was captured south of Benghazi by a U.S. Special Forces team and is on his way to the United States aboard a Navy ship. His capture marks the first time the United States has caught one of the suspects in the 2012 assault on Benghazi. Khattala’s capture came 642 days after he led the attack that killed the four Americans.

The Obama administration has faced an enormous amount of criticism from members in Congress and the family of the four murdered Americans over the fact that no one had been brought to justice since that day in 2012. Republican Senators Marco Rubio of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas said the terrorist should be sent to Guantanamo.

During the briefings held by the Department of State and the Department of Defense officials were questioned repeatedly on why reporters were able to get in touch with this jihadist terrorist after the attack but United States forces apparently could not capture him. The terrorist faces three counts in the federal complaint against him, which was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. It will be very interesting to see if 42-year-old savage criminal Ahmed Abu Khattala will speak on his long- term relationship with ambassador Chris Stevens in Libya before and after the defeat of Qaddafi and explain why he killed him.

chris stevensThe future ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, was sent to Benghazi as a Special Envoy from the Department of State to coordinate the assistance provided by the Obama administration to the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaida-linked terrorist organizations. Once he became the U.S. Ambassador, Stevens continued working with the jihadist terrorists. Somehow a dispute must have arisen and he was assassinated by Ansar al-Shariah, the terrorist group that he had been assisting during the civil war and later working with Ansar al-Shariah jihadists to send weapons to Syria. Some have speculated that the terrorists wanted to kidnap ambassador Stevens to trade him for the blind Sheik who is imprisoned in the United States.

Many of these weapons fell into the hands of al Qaida-link terrorist groups trying to overthrow the Syrian dictator. Perhaps Obama let him die to avoid a future Congressional investigation or that the gun-running operation could have come to light just before the 2012 presidential election.

The al Qaeda Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) invades Iraq and the Middle East is in flames.

ArmyTrainersAaron Klein wrote an article entitled “Blowback! U.S. Trained ISIS at Secret Jordan Base” which was published by BWC on June 17, 2014. The reporter explained that members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (also referred to Syria) were being training in 2012 by the United States at secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials. These officials said that dozens of ISIS terrorists were trained at the time as part of assisting the rebels fighting against the Syrian dictator by Bashar al-Assad in Syria. Turkey and Jordan were running training bases for the Syrian rebels. If this report is true, it is another indication that President Obama has switched sides in the War against Terror, as documented by the Citizens’ Committee on Benghazi.

As a result of President Obama gun-running operation from Libya to Turkey to Syria, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has now established a caliphate over the territory that stretches from the Syrian city of Raqqa through Iraq’s Nineveh province to the outskirts of Baghdad. President Obama has sent 275 troops to protect the American Embassy in Baghdad.

All the efforts of the American armed forces to eradicate al Qaeda from northern Iraq had been in vain. The ISIS savages rapid advance through northern Iraq has liquidated all the gains we made at a high cost of American blood and treasure during that war. In retrospect, it is now obvious that pulling all of the United States Armed Forces from Iraq was a terrible mistake. Many Republicans in Congress told President Obama that he should have left some troops in Iraq to prevent al Qaeda from moving in again. However, the arrogant Obama never listens to good advice.

Is President Barack Obama going to tolerate a caliphate of terrorist controlling territory in Syria and Iraq? Almost all of the territory that ISIS now control is desert area. Obama needs to use our Air Force to destroy all the U.S. military equipment, including tanks, that was abandoned by the inept Iraqi army and is now in the hands of brutal al Qaeda killers that are committing massive assassinations of captured Shiites. Perhaps, the President does not want to attack his allies.

obama clintonFormer Secretary Clinton and President Obama foreign-policy in the Middle East has been an absolute failure and the turmoil in that region is worst than ever. Probably, it is the beginning of the end of Iraq and perhaps the nation will be split into three countries, a Sunni, a Shiite, and a Kurd. The Syrian war is now a Middle Eastern war. The bloody conflict has spilled into Lebanon, Iraq, and Kurdistan, which now has emerged as a new nation. It could easily spread to Turkey, Jordan, and Israel before it’s over. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri-al Maliki has proven to be a complete failure and the chaos in his country is due to his incompetent leadership. Nouri-al Maliki is now a puppet of Iran and a traitor to our nation. And worst of all al Qaeda is stronger than ever and believes that the United States is a paper tiger.

There are now the reports that the United States is ready to talk with Iran on the Iraqi crisis. The State Department’s number two diplomat arrived in Vienna on June 16, 2014, to discuss possible collaboration with Iran, according to a senior administration official. The official stated that Deputy Secretary of State William Burns flew to Austria to join international negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program, but also to discuss the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Sunni al Qaeda-linked terrorist group that has been seizing territory from the Shiite Iraqi government.

The Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi investigated the White House cover-up on Benghazi

The Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi also investigated the White House cover-up on Benghazi. It stated the following: “The White House campaign appears to have been well-coordinated with U.S. Muslim Brotherhood organizations as well as Islamic nations members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, who all joined in condemnation of the video, and, even more troubling, issued calls for restriction on Americans’ free-speech rights. The Obama administration officials knew that the YouTube video had nothing to do with the terrorist attack in Benghazi, yet for two weeks President Obama and members of his administration deliberately falsely claim that a protest had preceded the attack on our Benghazi mission.”

There is no question in my mind that President Obama committed treason, dereliction of duty, and criminal negligence in Libya during the civil war against Qaddafi, for his refusal to save our diplomats and Navy SEALs in Benghazi, and his repeated lies and cover-up with the assistance of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and the Organization of Islamic States (OIS). Hillary Clinton is also guilty of treason and criminal negligence since she supported assisting the Muslim Brotherhood and jihadists to overthrow Qaddafi and later her State Department denied repeated requests from Ambassador Chris Stevens for protection and for her lies and participation in the cover-up.

Former’s State Department Secretary Hillary Clinton has continued to lie to the nation regarding her role in Benghazi. On June 15, 2014, she was interviewed by CBS Sunday Morning. When questioned about the four deaths of Americans at Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, Clinton said that no additional explanation that she could offered would satisfy her critics.

Hillary Clinton stated the following during the interview: “There’s a difference between unanswered questions and unlistened to answers. There were a lot of confusing pieces of information flooding into us from the very first moment we heard about it. We did our best to sort it out. I did my best to fully cooperate with the Congress. I respect the Congress’ oversight responsibility.”

Again Hillary Clinton used the terrible excuse of the “the fog of war” for not knowing what was happening in Benghazi. There was no “fog of war.” All of her statements were lies since the president, the Pentagon, the CIA, the State Department, the U.S. embassy in Tripoli, and the president of Libya knew from the very beginning that the attack at Benghazi was a carefully planned terrorist attack by jihadists connected to al Qaeda.

On June 17, 2014, Hillary Clinton spoke to Brett Baire and Greta Van Susteron of Fox News and once again blamed the “fog of war” and the constant stream of information for blaming the video on the attack at Benghazi. If she runs for president, Hillary Clinton will be asked again and again about her role in Benghazi.

Hillary Clinton needs to be indicted and brought to trial for assisting the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya and al Qaeda-linked organizations in the war in Libya, her criminal negligence in not sending additional soldiers to protect our ambassador and other personnel, and for her continued lies to Congress and the American people and her participation in the cover-up. She is as guilty as the president for her actions in Libya. And she certainly unfit to run for president in 2016.

The House of Representatives voted to create a Select Committee to probe the Benghazi attack

On May 8, 2014, the House of Representatives voted a resolution creating a Select Committee to investigate the September 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the United States Consulate and the CIA safe house annex in Benghazi, Libya. The vote was 232-186, with seven Democrats joining 225 Republicans in support of the resolution. This panel should have been set up 20 months ago. But it’s never too late to seek justice and accountability.

A Select Committee comprised of seven Republicans and five Democrats will investigate what happened before, during, and after the terrorist attacks in Benghazi. House Speaker John Boehner appointed Representative Trey Gowdy, a Republican from South Carolina, a former prosecutor, to chair the Select Committee. Congressman Gowdy stated that he plans to aggressively pursue interviews with any official who he believes has information about the attack, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The Select Committee will have the authority to subpoena witnesses and view classified materials, tools that will help the committee to determine why the United States was not able to prevent the terrorist attack, send military assistance to save the lives of the Americans at Benghazi, and whether Obama administration officials tried to mislead the public on why it happened.

The shameful lies and cover-up of the terrorist attack on Benghazi

House Speaker John Boehner, Republican from Ohio, explained why he called a vote to create the Select Committee, after having resisted demands to do so in the past. Boehner decided to create the Select Committee after a lawsuit by the watchdog group Judicial Watch forced the release of an email that had been sent from President Obama’s White House Advisor Ben Rhodes to United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice in the days following the attack, as has been previously mentioned. In that email Rhodes advised Rice to stick to blaming the attack on the anti-Muslim video in her upcoming appearances on five Sunday television talk shows.

President Obama and Ben Rhodes, as well as the rest of the officials in his administration in the White House, Central Intelligence Agency, FBI, State Department, and Defense Department, and the President of Libya were fully aware that the premeditated terrorist attacks at Benghazi had nothing to do with a video. The White House decided to mislead the nation once again. Speaker Boehner stated that “a line was crossed” when new information was discovered that pointed out the White House involvement in misguiding the American people in the talking points used by former United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice on five Sunday television shows.
The Judicial Watch Special Investigative Report pointed out that in the aftermath of the terrorist attack both President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Jay Carney, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice were quick to identify Muslim outrage over an Internet video making fun of Mohammed as a reason for the attack. The four of them, of course, were lying willfully and deliberately. Lying is a felony and they should all be prosecuted.

On September 14, 2012 during an event honoring the four dead Americans, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s stated the following: “We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directive at American embassies over an awful Internet video that had nothing to do with us.” As has been previously mentioned, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice blamed the video for the attack on Benghazi in her five television interviews.

On September 18, 2012 press conference, White House spokesman and highly paid liar Jay Carney told reporters to that, “Based on what we knew at the time, knew initially, what we know now, the facts that we have, the video was a precipitating cause to the unrest in the region and specifically in Libya.”

The Obama administration officials, as well as the president, blamed the terrorist attacks in Benghazi on a video for two weeks since Barack Obama was campaigning for reelection stating that he had defeated al Qaeda. The attack at Benghazi contradicted his speeches over his victory over al Qaeda. The president was well aware that al Qaeda, rather than being defeated, was getting stronger in Africa and the Middle East.

HILLARY2Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke and keeps speaking about the “fog of war” and, together with Obama, both deliberately lied to the family members of the four brave Americans who were assassinated by terrorists in Benghazi. Administration officials knowingly lied by stating that the CIA intelligence indicated that the attack in Libya was due to a video. Lying is a felony. President Obama and Secretary Clinton should be held accountable for their actions.

The Middle East gun-running operation from Libya to Turkey to Syria and the terrorist attack at Benghazi

Doug Hagmann of the Canadian Free Press, James Robbins of the Washington Times, Aaron Klein of WND, Roger Aronoff’s Citizens’ Committee on Benghazi, and Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch have fully explained that the Obama administration was engaged in a massive gun-running operation to al Qaeda, which included transporting heavy weapons from Libya to Syria. Ambassador Stevens was in charge of this operation, which also involved recruiting jihadists to fight against the dictator Bashar al-Assad in Syria.

At 9:40 p.m. on September 11, 2012, a group of approximately 150 heavily armed jihadist militia members attacked the Special Mission Compound (SMC) and the nearby CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya. The terrorists used small arms, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) and mortars against Americans at the two separate facilities, the Special Mission Compound (also referred as the Benghazi consulate) and the CIA Annex. Immediately Ambassador Stevens contacted Greg Hicks in Tripoli and told him, “Greg, we are under attack!” and requested assistance. Hicks immediately notified all agencies so that they could initiate an emergency response plan.
There were soldiers at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, as well as soldiers in all the Western embassies and consulates of countries, such as Great Britain, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, that upon request by President Obama would have sent their military personnel immediately to Benghazi to provide assistance to our diplomat and other personnel. Yet nothing was done!

The Benghazi scandal involved criminal negligence and dereliction of duty as the Obama administration allowed Ambassador Chris Stevens, two former Navy Seals, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, and Sean Smith, a U.S. Foreign Service computer specialist to die for political reasons when the United States had forces nearby that could have saved them.

As stated, the Special Mission Compound (SMC), also known as the Benghazi Consulate, and CIA Annex were attacked at approximately 9:40 p.m. For eight hours, a small group of brave Americans fought approximately 150 terrorists while notifying our government and repeatedly requesting help. There were two squadrons of F-16s at Aviano Air Base in Italy. The F-16 aircraft is armed with 500 20 MM rounds and other weapons and they are able to fly at 0.92 mach speed. A Marine detachment was at U.S. Navy Base in Rota, Spain. U.S. forces were also stationed in Greece. The ensuing cover up was disgraceful and is completely unacceptable. It violated our armed forces Code of Conduct which states that we do not leave someone behind.

The president signed an executive order on September 16, 2013 waiving a ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to the Syrian rebels, many of which are supporters of al Qaeda. In essence, he exempted himself from any laws, such as the Patriot Act, that prohibits anyone from giving weapons to a terrorist organization. This executive order should be grounds for impeachment.

Abu Mohammed al golaniIn reality, Obama has been secretly shipping weapons from Libya to Turkey for a couple of years. The weapons were being given to the rebels fighting the Syrian regime, which included al Qaeda-linked rebels groups. One of the largest al Qaeda group is the Nusra Front. Abu Mohammed al Golani is the leader of this al Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group and he has an army of 10,000 soldiers under his command in Syria.

Tom Fitton’s Judicial Watch Special Investigative Report raised the question why Ambassador Chris Stevens went to Benghazi so close to the anniversary of 9/11 in a place that had experienced 20 terrorist attacks including one at the U.S. diplomatic compound. It is now known that the Ambassador met with the Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin on the evening of the attack.

The purpose of that meeting has not been disclosed. Some experts believe that the Ambassador’s work in Benghazi may have been related to the Obama administration’s efforts to transfer arms to Syrian opposition groups. Frank Gaffney, former deputy assistant secretary of state, stated the following: “One of the places in Libya most awash with weapons in the most dangerous of hands is Benghazi. It now appears that Stevens was there-on a particularly risky day, with no security to speak of and despite now copiously documented concerns about his own safety and that of his subordinates-for another priority mission: sending arms recovered from the former regime’s stocks to the opposition in Syria.”

Judicial Watch wrote that the newspaper Times of London published an article on September 14, 2012, entitled “Syrian Rebels Squabble Over Weapons as Biggest Shipload Arrives from Libya.” The Times of London pointed out that the Libyan ship, The Intisaar or The Victory, arrived at the Turkish port of Iskenderun after leaving from Benghazi. It explained that “more than 400 tons of cargo arrived in Syria carrying SAM-7 surface-to-air anti-aircraft missiles and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), which Syrian sources said could be a game changer for the rebels.”

Benghazi Scandal and other threats as seen by Admiral James Lyons

James Lyons is a retired four-star admiral in the United States Navy who was part of the Citizens’ Committee on Benghazi. He served honorably our country for 36 years. During his service to our nation Admiral Lyons was appointed to many important positions in the U.S. Navy. Admiral Lyons served as Deputy Chief of Naval Operations from 1983 to 1985, and subsequently as Commander-in-Chief, United States Pacific Fleet from 1985 to 1987.

Admiral Lyons was interviewed by Roger Aronoff of Accuracy in Media, who also serves on the Citizens’ Committee on Benghazi. The interview was published by the New Zeal Blog on February 15, 2013.

The interview was done the day after outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s testimony to Congress. Secretary Clinton, when asked repeatedly about the scandal and cover-up of Benghazi, Libya, she became very upset and at one point pounded the table. When asked why the Obama administration kept claiming for weeks after the attack that what had occurred in Libya was in response to an anti-Islamic video produced in the United States, when it was obvious that this was a lie, she answered “What difference [at this point] does it make?”

Admiral Lyons, in response to the statement made by Secretary Clinton, responded the following: “Richard Nixon found out what the difference is when you lie to the American public and in his lie, it was only a bungled burglary attempt; nobody got killed. In this case, we had four Americans murdered. Furthermore, we knew, within a matter of hours, that this was determined, preplanned terrorist attack. So you have to ask yourself that ‘in perpetuating this lie, we had administration officials lying to Congressional committees. That´s a felony.’ So, ‘what difference does it make?’” Lyons explained, “It makes all the difference in the world. You cannot flaunt the truth here, just walked away from it and, basically, tell the American public to stuff it. That’s not acceptable.”

Admiral Lyons has been highly critical regarding the way the Obama administration handled the attack on our Consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi. When asked about the report provided by Secretary Clinton´s Independent Accountability Review Board, which took several months to look into the terrorist attack, Admiral Lyons explained that, from his perspective, the board ”was like having the Mafia investigate a crime scene.”

Admiral Lyons said that you are never going to get the true story until you appoint a Special Prosecutor who can interview people under oath to find out what actually went on. Admiral Lyons said that former Ambassador Thomas Pickering, a former career employee of the State Department, who is now the chairman of the International Crisis Group, which is a Soros-funded group, could hardly be trusted to conduct a fair investigation.

Who is Ambassador Thomas Pickering and why was he hired to investigate Benghazi?

Ambassador Thomas Pickering is a member of the Council of Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group, the three most powerful groups in the world that run the United States and most of the world. The Judicial Watch report explained that former CIA officer Clare Lopez wrote the following regarding Thomas Pickering: “Ambassador Pickering’s positions on Iran include calls for bilateral talks without preconditions and the plan for a multinational uranium enrichment consortium in Iran. Iran has proposed a similar plan to the United Nations Security Council. Ambassador Pickering advocates a process leading to a mutual diplomatic relations between Iran and the United States.”

Judicial Watch reported that the Ambassador is a member of the advisory board of the National Iranian American Council, a left-wing advocacy group that opposes the imposition of economic sanctions against Iran. Judicial Watch also indicated that the national security expert Kenneth Timmerman believes that Ambassador Thomas Pickering “has been lobbying Congress to win support for an agenda that mirrors the goals of the Tehran regime.”

On May 19, 2014, Ambassador Thomas Pickering signed an open letter to President Obama, along with David Rockefeller and 41 other former high officials of the government, retired politicians and multimillionaires, requesting that the president used illegal and unconstitutional executive orders to eliminate or relax unilaterally the Cuban embargo.

Barack Obama does not have the authority to eliminate or relax the Cuban embargo as the Helms-Burton law requires that before such action is taken the tyrannical and oppressive communist regime of Cuba has to free all political prisoners, restore human rights, and have free elections. Additionally, Cuba is on the list of the Department of State nation that sponsor terrorist.

The Cuban communist regime that has murdered and imprisoned thousands of people for over 55 years is currently increasing repression on peaceful political dissidents and opponents. All Cuban patriots consider this shameful open letter as an insult of the many Cubans that have died or have suffered brutal imprisonment for trying to free their Fatherland.

It is obvious that Ambassador Thomas Pickering doesn’t care about justice and accountability for the four brave Americans who died at Benghazi. He also doesn’t care about the suffering of the Cuban people and wants to help economically the Castro regime so they can continue to oppress the people of Cuba. In conclusion, the selection of Ambassador Thomas Pickering to investigate the State Department could not have been worse. To this date no one at the State Department has been fired for criminal negligence.

The Select Committee must act with force

Now, of course, we have a Select Committee with the power to subpoena administration officials, including President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. General Carter Ham, Commander of the United States African Command and Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette, who was in charge of Carrier Strike Group Three, which included the aircraft carrier U.S.S. John C.Stennis, were both fired for trying to send a rapid response team to Benghazi to save our people in violation of the order that they were given to stand down, meaning do nothing should be interviewed. Former CIA director, David Petraeus, should also be sent a subpoena.

Other high-ranking generals, as well as White House officials from the National Security Council who were aware of what happened at Benghazi, should be sent subpoenas and forced to testify under oath. Only then, will the truth be found out, and it could very well be career ending for Barack Obama.

In an interview with Lou Dobbs, Admiral Lyons, when asked what did he think that went on in Benghazi, he responded: “If I had to speculate, I believe this was a bungled attack-kidnapping, the object being to kidnap Ambassador Stevens, and hold him in exchange for the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel Rahman, who sits in jail in the United States for his role in planning the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993.”

Lyons explained that in June 2012 both the British Consulate and the International Red Cross had to close their offices due to the assassination attempt on the British Consul General and other assassinations. The bombing outside our Special Mission Compound in Benghazi took place on June 6.

Ambassador Chris Stevens had requested additional security assistance on multiple locations. Secretary Clinton sent home Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood and the 16-man security force which was at our embassy in Tripoli. The repeated pleas from Ambassador Stevens for additional security were ignored and denied by the State Department. Lyons stated: “Perhaps this was supposed to be part of a kidnapping, hostage situation, holding him in exchange for the Blind Sheikh. Because killing Ambassador Stevens made no sense to me since he was the great facilitator in funneling the arms to the rebels, to other militias, many of which were al Qaeda-affiliated, who have been fighting our troops in Iraq. So why would you kill the golden goose? It made the no sense to me.”

Admiral Lyons was highly critical of the Obama administration for its lack of response to the terrorist attack against our men in our Consulate an CIA safe house in Benghazi. He explained that we had 130 Marines at our Base at Sigonela, Sicily and another Marine detachment at our naval base in Rota, Spain. We also had F-16 aircraft that could have been there in an hour.

Lyons also criticized the fact that the Obama administration did not ask for help from the other Western Consulates that had security forces and could have assisted our men. Later, Consul Generals stated that if they had been requested assistance, they would have provided it. Lastly, Lyons stated that what happened at Benghazi would make the Iran-Contra scandal look like child’s play.

During his interview Admiral Lyons covering another topic. He stated the following: “The Muslim Brotherhood penetration in this country is really unconscionable. They have been able to penetrate almost every one of our government agencies. You see it reflected down in the administration´s directive, where we have to purge all of our training manuals and instructors on anything that purports the truth about Islam. Anything that is considered anti-Islamic must be purged, and instructors who do not fall in line, find themselves with new orders elsewhere. We have the Organization of Islamic Cooperation that our great Secretary of State has endorsed, which impinges on our First Amendment right of freedom of expression, and the administration is embracing this, that we leave it up to the 57 or 58 Islamic states that make up the organization, to determine what they consider to be insulting to Islam, and, therefore, they can impose sanctions or bring you to trial, or whatever on this. None of this makes any sense to me.”

Admiral Lyons, when asked what signal is being sent to Iran and Israel by sending advanced weapons to the president of Egypt, as well as the appointments of John Kerry to the State Department, Chuck Hagel to the Defense Department and John Brennan to the CIA, he responded: “Certainly, if I were Iran, I would be thrilled to death with those appointments.”

The Admiral stated the following: “Because none of them are for taking any military action against Iran, which is giving Iran a clear sailing for the development of their nuclear weapon capability. And it is not just their capability in Iran, you have got to look at what they have done in Latin America. We have Iranian operational missile bases today in Venezuela fully up and operational. They have been able to accomplish what the Soviet Union was unable to do in Cuba in 1962. We have cities in the United States today which are on their threat umbrella of those missiles that are in Venezuela. It needs to be addressed. In fact, they should be forced out of there post-haste. Either take them out, or we will take them out. I do not see that happening”.

Admiral Lyons ended the interview with Roger Aronoff by saying that the Muslim Brotherhood has a plan and that is: “It is to institute Shariah law in the United States in place of our Constitution–they call it the “Stealth Jihad”–and, in their own words, to destroy us by our own miserable hands.”

We have to thank this brave Admiral for condemning the Obama administration for its lack of response and prevention in the terrorist attack against our diplomats in Benghazi and for participating in the commission. We need other retired generals and admirals to come forward and tell the American people the true story on Benghazi.
There is no question in my mind that there were repeated lies and a huge cover-up, as well as criminal negligence, committed by high officials and by President Obama. As Admiral Lyons indicated felonies were committed and the newly appointed Select Committee needs to conduct a comprehensive investigation.

The danger that Admiral Lyons pointed out regarding of the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into our government is a clear and present danger. Unfortunately, president´s older brother, Malik Obama, was accused by the Vice President of the Supreme Court of Egypt on a television station in Cairo as “being the architect of the finances of the Muslim Brotherhood.” Additionally, Malik Obama works with the Da´wa organization in the Muslim Brotherhood-controlled and terrorists nation of Sudan.

How could President Obama and former Secretary Clinton get away with supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda-linked terrorists organizations in Libya and in Syria violating the Patriot Act and other laws in our nation? How could the United States trained terrorists from the bloody al Qaeda Islamic State in Syria and Iraq at a secret base in Jordan?

Conclusion

According to a recent poll 64% of the American people believe that the United States is on the wrong track. The reason for our country being a superpower in retreat is due to the failed domestic and economic policies of President Barack Obama. He has made our nation a superpower in retreat. He projects weakness abroad and all of our enemies have been emboldened. Russia annexed Crimea without fear, China is claiming the entire South China Sea as its territory including islands that belong to our allies, Iran continues to enrich uranium, North Korea continues to expand its nuclear program and intercontinental ballistic missiles, Venezuela and Cuba continue to oppressed their people and sign military agreements and future bases with Russia and China. This is why I called my recent book America in Decline (2014).

The Select Committee needs to investigate not only the terrorist attacks on the mission in Benghazi but also the Obama administration assistance to the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood and jihadists during the civil war. The Select Committee needs to investigate the White House cover-up with Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the United States and Muslim nations in the world. Lastly, the Select Committee needs to investigate the Obama administration training terrorists from al Qaeda in Syria and Iraq in a secret base in Jordan and whether they also received weapons sent from Libya to Turkey to Syria that assisted them to expand their caliphate.

President Obama entered into a war in Libya violating the Constitution since Congress did not authorized it. Later Obama had been engaged in a Middle Eastern gun-running operation without Congressional authority and in violation of United States laws. If the Select Committee does its job properly, it will uncover what my investigative research and out of others found months ago.

The president violated his oath of office and multiple laws by sending weapons working with terrorist groups during the civil war in Libya and later by sending weapons from Libya to Turkey knowing that those weapons would eventually fall into the hands of al Qaeda-link terrorist groups fighting in Libya. Moreover, Obama worked with the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States and Muslim nations to engaged in a cover-up. This is astounding and alarming. President Obama is a traitor who should be impeached by the House of Representatives and prosecuted by the Senate.

President Obama committed treason, dereliction of duty, and criminal negligence in Libya during the civil war against Qaddafi and his refusal to save our diplomats and Navy SEALs in Benghazi. President Barack Obama is unfit to be our commander-in-chief and must be impeached by the House of Representatives and the Senate must hold a trial.
