When is the House of Representatives Going to Impeach Obama for his Gunrunning of Weapons to al-Qaida?

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

I have written several articles of the greatest scandal of the Obama administration and most likely one of the worst in our history. This was a scandal that also involved Hillary Clinton. She now has the audacity of wanting to run for president in 2016. The sad reality is that both the president and his former secretary of State committed treason.

A Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) was set up in September 2013 to investigate the September 11, 2012 assaults on the U.S. Department of State Special Mission Compound, also known as the Consulate, and the CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya. The CCB was made up of 17 retired admirals and generals, former CIA intelligence agents, active anti-terrorist experts, defense consultants, journalists, and former congressmen. The CCB members conducted a detailed investigation for the past year-and-a-half to ensure Congress uncovers the truth of what happened in Benghazi and holds people accountable.

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.”

Thomas McInerney

Major General Thomas McInerney retired from the Air Force on July 1,1994.

This is a summary of the alarming findings:

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.

The 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.
The 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 in jail awaiting a trial. 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 43-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.

The 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 and others who are imprisoned in the United States.

Many of these weapons fell into the hands of al Qaida-linked terrorist groups trying to overthrow the Syrian dictator such as the al Nusra Front. Additionally, the Islamic State, also called ISIS or ISIL, captured many of these weapons. 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 Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi explained the powerful Muslim Brotherhood

• “The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamic organization, founded by Hasan al-Banna in Cairo, Egypt in 1928 that is dedicated to restoration of the Caliphate and global enforcement of Islamic Law (Shariah).
• Known as the Ikhwan in Arabic, the Brotherhood’s motto is: “Allah is our objective, the Prophet is our leader, the Qur’an is our law, jihad is our way, and dying in the way of Allah is our highest aspiration.”
• With a presence in over 80 countries worldwide, the Ikhwan pursues its dual objectives (Caliphate and Shariah) by pre-violent Da’wa (proselytizing, or the “call to Islam”), “civilization jihad” (or “stealth jihad”), as well as violent jihad.
• The Project is a 14-page document dated December 1, 1982 that was seized in a 2001 raid on a Swiss villa belonging to Yousef Nada, the Muslim Brotherhood director of the Al-Taqwa bank that had funded al-Qaeda.
• The Project outlines a campaign of progressive infiltration of the structures of Western society in order to achieve Islamic domination over the West.
• Among the tactics to be used are deception, infiltration and involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government.”
• The 2008 U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation et.al. was the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history, and brought to light extensive documentation about Muslim Brotherhood activities and plans in the U.S.
• A 2004 raid by the FBI on the home of Ismail el-Barasse discovered the archives of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, including a document called “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.
• The Memorandum makes clear the Brothers are engaged in America in “a kind of grand jihad” whose goal is “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”
• An attachment to the Memorandum lists 29 groups under the heading “A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends” among which are the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim Students Association (MSA), and the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP–later to become CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations).
• Those and other Muslim Brotherhood organizations today are among the most influential, mainstream Islamic groups in the country despite their known allegiance to a jihadist ideology.
• Top officials of this Ikhwan groups advice, socialize with, and train the leadership of key agencies within the U.S. national security community. The Muslim Brotherhood has achieved information dominance inside the U.S. government about Islam, Islamic terrorism, and the nature and objectives of the Brotherhood itself.
• The 2011-2012 USG-wide purge of all curriculum training materials and instructors who taught the linkage between Islamic terrorism and its inspirational sources in the doctrine, law, and scriptures of Islam was undertaken under pressure from Brotherhood groups and neutralized U.S. national security efforts to counter Brotherhood influence operations.
• The disastrous consequences of this effort became evident in official U.S. backing for the 2011 Brotherhood- and al-Qaeda-dominated Islamic uprisings known as the “Arab Spring.”
• U.S. official support for the Muslim Brotherhood political leadership and al-Qaeda militias that ousted Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi led directly to the 11 September 2012 attacks on our mission in Benghazi and the chaos that grips Libya today.”

The Islamic State invades Iraq and the Middle East is in flames

Aaron Klein wrote an article entitled “Blowback! U.S. Trained ISIS at Secret Jordan Base” which was published by WND on June 17, 2014. The reporter explained that members of the Islamic State 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’ Commission on Benghazi.

As a result of President Obama gun-running operation from Libya to Turkey to Syria, the Islamic State 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 more than 3,000 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 Islamic State 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.

The Pentagon was opposed to a complete withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq. 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.

Former Secretary Clinton and President Obama foreign-policy in the Middle East has been an absolute failure and the turmoil in that region is worse 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. President Obama, who secretly provided weapons to the Islamic State and the al Nusra Front in Syria, is responsible for the deaths of several Americans killed by the Islamic State and the tens of thousands assassinated, tortured, and raped Christians in the Middle East.

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 that are members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), 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 Cooperation. 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 offer 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 Baier 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. Hillary Clinton is 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 Special Mission Compound 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 has 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 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 U.S. Department of State 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 match 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.

In 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 al 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.”

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 allegedly 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.

The Select Committee needs to subpoena all the CIA officers who served at the CIA Annex in Benghazi and their superiors at Langley to question them as to how many tons of weapons did they sent from Libya to Turkey to Syria. Former CIA director, David Petraeus, should also be sent a subpoena so that he may testify as to who ordered to do that. Now Petraeus is being threaten with an indictment for allowing his lover, who wrote a biography about him, to see classified documents. Is this done to keep him quiet?

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 Compound and 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.

Four-star Admiral James Lyons served on the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi which published a report titled “How America Switched Sides on the War on Terror”.

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.” Since the admiral made those remarks, Hagel was forced to resign

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 terrorist nation of Sudan. The bloody dictator of Sudan was indicted by the U.N. International Court of Justice for committing genocide. Over 400,000 Christians were assassinated and tens of thousands raped, kidnapped, and subjected to torture. Malik Obama collects money in Sudan and sends it to Hamas in Gaza.

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 of our nation? How could have the United States trained terrorists from the bloody al Qaeda Islamic State in Syria and Iraq at a secret base in Jordan?

Jerome R. Corsi wrote an article entitled “Generals Conclude Obama Backed al-Qaida” which was published on WND on January 20, 2015. He explained that the White House and the State Department under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “changed sides in the war on terror” in 2011 by implementing a policy of facilitating the delivery of weapons to the al-Qaida-dominated rebel militias in Libya attempting to oust Moammar Gadhafi, the Citizens Commission on Benghazi (CCB) concluded in its interim report.

Corsi pointed the following: “several members of the commission have revealed their finding that the mission of Christopher Stevens, prior to the fall of Gadhafi and during Stevens’ time as U.S. ambassador, was the management of a secret gun-running program operated out of the Benghazi compound. The Obama administration’s gun-running project in Libya, much like the “fast and furious” program under Eric Holder’s Justice Department, operated without seeking or obtaining authorization by Congress.”

In interviews conducted with 11 of the 17 members of the commission, it was disclosed that a concern is that Congressman Trey Gowdy, Republican from South Carolina, and chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, is stopped from presenting its report by other Republicans in Congress.

Corsi said that the CCB report stated that the jihadist agenda of al-Qaida in the Maghreb (AQIM), the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and other Islamic terrorist groups fighting among the rebel forces was well known to U.S. officials responsible for Libya policy. “The 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,” the interim report said. “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 report concluded: “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.”

Christopher Stevens: ’First U.S. envoy to al-Qaida’

In the WND interviews, several members of the Citizens’ Commission, speaking for themselves, not for the commission, added important background to the interim report’s conclusion. Corsi wrote that Clare Lopez, a member of the commission who served as a career operations officer with the CIA and current is vice president for research at the Washington-based Center for Security Policy stated the following: “In early 2011, before Gadhafi was deposed, Christopher Stevens came to Benghazi in a cargo ship, and his title at the time was envoy to the Libyan rebels,’ which basically means Christopher Stevens was America’s very first envoy to al-Qaida. At that time, Stevens was facilitating the delivery of weapons to the al-Qaida-related militia in Libya, The weapons were produced at factories in Eastern Europe and shipped to a logistics hub in Qatar. The weapons were financed by the UAE and delivered via Qatar mostly on ships, with some possibly on airplanes, for delivery to Benghazi. The weapons were small arms, including Kalashnikovs, rocket-propelled grenades and lots of ammunition.”
Clare Lopez indicated that during the period of time when Chris Stevens was facilitating the delivery of weapons to the al-Qaida-affiliated rebels in Libya, he was living in the facility that was later designated the Special Mission Compound in Benghazi.

Clare Lopez further stated to Corsi the following: “This was about weapons going into Libya, and Stevens is coordinating with Abdelhakim Belhadj, the leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, other al-Qaida-affiliated militia leaders and leaders of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood that directed the rebellion against Gadhafi as an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Many of the individual members of the al-Qaida-related militias, including the LIFG, and the groups that would later become Ansar Al-Sharia, were Muslim Brotherhood members first.”

Barack Obama sends weapons to al-Qaida in Syria

Clare Lopez told Corsi the following: “After Gadhafi is deposed and Stevens was appointed U.S. ambassador to Libya, the flow of weapons reverses. Now Stevens has the job of overseeing the shipment of arms from Libya to Syria to arm the rebels fighting Assad, some of whom ultimately becomes al-Nusra in Syria and some become ISIS. The al-Nusra in Syria still claims allegiance to al-Qaida, while ISIS has broken away from al-Qaida, not because ISIS is too violent, but out of insubordination, after Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, wanted to run his own show inside Syria as well as Iraq, thereby disobeying orders from al-Qaida leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri.”

Clare Lopez said that in this period of time, after the fall of Gadhafi and before the September 11, 2012, attack on the Benghazi compound, Ambassador Stevens was working with Turkey to ship weapons out of Libya into Syria for the use of the rebels fighting Assad.
Corsi wrote that according to the authors of the bestselling book, 13 Hours, on September 11, 2012, before the attack on the Benghazi compound began; Ambassador Stevens had dinner with Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin. Ambassador Stevens escorted the Turkish diplomat outside the main gate of the Benghazi compound to say good-bye to Akin at approximately 7:40 p.m. local time, before he returned to Villa C to retire for the evening.

Corsi explained that “Kevin Shipp, a former CIA counterintelligence expert who worked on the seventh floor at Langley as protective staff to then-CIA Director William Casey, again speaking for himself in his interview with WND, agreed with Lopez that the gun-running operation Stevens managed is a secret the Obama White House and Clinton State Department have sought to suppress from the public.”

Kevin Shipp told Corsi the following: “The shocking part, maybe even a violation of international law that the Obama administration has been terrified to have fully revealed, is that Stevens as part of his duties as a State Department employee was assisting in the shipment of arms first into Libya for the al-Qaida-affiliated militia, with the weapons shipped subsequently out of Libya into Syria for use by the al-Qaida-affiliated rebels fighting Assad. Very possibly, these gun-running activities could be looked at even as treasonable offenses.”

Former CIA agent Kevin Shipp further said that in gun-running operations in which the CIA wants deniability, the CIA generally involves a third party. He stated the following: “The way the CIA works is through a ‘cut-out,’ in that you get Qatar to transport the weapons and you facilitate the transport. So now the third party is to blame. Qatar probably would have been able to pull this off without any attribution to the CIA if the Benghazi attack had not happened. The attack basically shed the light on this operation the White House, the State Department and the CIA was trying to keep quiet.”

Tapes validated the findings from Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi

Roger Aronoff wrote an article titled “Washington Times’ Bombshell Tapes Confirm Citizen Commission’s Findings on Benghazi” which was posted in the Accuracy in Media website on January 30, 2015. Aronoff explained that as Hillary Clinton further waits to announce that she will run for the White House in 2016, more news has broken regarding her role in the 2011 disastrous intervention in Libya.
Aronoff pointed out two new stories from The Washington Times revealing the infighting among government agencies and branches of government on this controversial decision to go to war in Libya. Hillary Clinton played a very important role in initiating the war.
This news also validates the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) 2014 interim report which revealed that Muammar Qaddafi had offered truce talks and possibly resigning and leaving Libya to the United States, which the Obama administration turned down. The article from The Washington Times makes it clear that the investigation needs to be broadened to answer the question: ‘Why did America bomb Libya in the first place? Retired Rear Admiral Chuck Kubic, a key source for the CCB’s interim report was also quoted by the Washington Times.

Admiral Kubic stated that: “Despite the willingness of both AFRICOM Commander General Carter Ham and Muammar Qaddafi to pursue the possibility of truce talks, permission was not given to General Ham from his chain of command in the Pentagon and the window of opportunity closed.” Aronoff explained that the stonewalling came from the State Department—and Secretary Clinton—herself. On January 29, 2015 the article from The Washington Times reported that “On the day the U.N. resolution was passed, Mrs. Clinton ordered a general within the Pentagon to refuse to take a call with Gadhafi’s son Seif and other high-level members within the regime, to help negotiate a resolution, the secret recordings reveal.”

Aronoff wrote that former Defense Secretary Bob Gates said in his book, Duty, that he was opposed to the war for national security reasons. Gates indicated in his book that there was a division among White House advisors—with Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, and Samantha Power “urging aggressive U.S. action to prevent an anticipated massacre of the rebels as Qaddafi fought to remain in power.” Now we know the former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton wanted to go to war against the Muammar Qaddafi regime.

The New York Times reported on March 18, 2011 the following: “Within hours, Mrs. Clinton and the aides had convinced Mr. Obama that the United States had to act, and the president ordered up military plans, which Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, hand-delivered to the White House the next day … Mrs. Clinton formed an unlikely alliance with a handful of top administration aides who had been arguing for intervention,” the day after United Nations Resolution 1973 authorizing a “no fly” zone in Libya was voted on and passed.

Aronoff wrote the following: “The Washington Times now reports that in the recovered recordings, a U.S. intelligence liaison working for the Pentagon told a Gadhafi aide that Mr. Obama privately informed members of Congress that Libya ‘is all Secretary Clinton’s matter’ and that the nation’s highest-ranking generals were concerned that the president was being misinformed” about a humanitarian crisis that didn’t exist. However, one must wonder just how much President Obama implicitly supported Clinton in her blind push to intervene in what were once a comparatively stable country, and an ally in the war against al-Qaeda. While this new report is certainly damning of Mrs. Clinton’s actions, and appears to place the blame for the unnecessary chaos in Libya—which ultimately led to Benghazi—on her shoulders, President Obama shares the blame as the ultimate Decider-in-Chief”.

Aronoff wrote the following: ”Could it be, instead, that President Obama, as well as Mrs. Clinton, put greater value on the rise to power of an “Arab Spring” government with Muslim Brotherhood connections? And, as the CCB interim report shows, the U.S. government was willing to go so far as to facilitate the provision of arms to al-Qaeda-linked rebels in Libya in order to ensure that Qaddafi fell”.

Aronoff raised this question: “Will the mainstream media pick up on these new revelations, or will they cast them aside as another “phony scandal” to throw into their dustbins filled with other stories that might possibly embarrass the Obama administration, or prove to be an impediment to Mrs. Clinton’s path to the White House”?

CCB Member Clare Lopez, a former CIA officer, stated the following regarding the failed truce talks “It’s critical to note that Qaddafi was actively engaged with Department of Defense officials to arrange discussions about his possible abdication and exile when that promising development was squashed by the Obama White House. The Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi has been asking, ‘Why?’ for well over a year now. It is time the American people and the families of those who fought and gave their lives at Benghazi in September 2012 were told why those brave Americans had to die at all, much less die alone with no effort made to save them.”

Aronoff explained that Hillary Clinton has indicated that she is willing to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi. However, Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) recently indicated that the Committee must first examine her emails from the State Department before questioning his witness. Do the emails that Gowdy has requested from the State Department even extend back to 2011?

Aronoff wrote that Chairman Gowdy identified three “tranches” that his potential questioning would fall under in an interview with FoxNews Greta Van Susteren. These are:

• Why was the U.S. Special Mission Compound open in the first place?
• What actions did Clinton take during the attacks?
• What was Clinton’s role during the talking points and Susan Rice’s Sunday morning talk show visits?

Aronoff concluded his article by stating the following: “A fourth tranche should be: Clinton’s push to intervene in Libya and how it set the stage for an insecure country and strong jihadist movement willing—and able—to attack the Americans posted there. And while he’s at it, Representative Gowdy should ask Mrs. Clinton to explain why all of the very legitimate requests for increased security in Benghazi were turned down, and why were Ambassador Chris Stevens’ personal security staff, from the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) directed to store their weapons in a separate location—not on them—on the night of September 11, 2012”?

Jeffrey Scott Shapiro and Kelly Riddell wrote an article titled “House Benghazi committee to review secret Hillary tapes on Libya” which was published on The Washington Times on February 2, 2015. The reporters explained that Representative Trey Gowdy asked his staff to review secretly the recorded tapes and intelligence reports that show former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s role in advocating and executing the war in Libya. The investigation could have consequences for the 2016 election in which Hillary Clinton is expected to run for president. It could also examine the “strained relationship between the State Department and Pentagon, which sharply disagreed over the 2011 war in Libya and the response to the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi a year later”.

The Washington Times reported that U.S. intelligence disagreed with Secretary Clinton’s story of coming genocide in Libya that she used to sell the war against the regime of Moammar Gadhafi. The newspaper also disclosed the secretly recorded tapes from Libya that showed that the Pentagon and Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich so distrusted Secretary Clinton’s handling the war that they opened their own diplomatic channels with the Gadhafi regime.

The tapes included candid conversations and allegations that Secretary Clinton took the United States to war ”on false pretenses and were not listening to the advice of military commanders or career intelligence officers.” Select Committee on Benghazi spokesman Jamal Ware stated “Chairman Gowdy and the committee are aware of the details reported by The Washington Times, and we are reviewing them as part of the committee’s inquiry into Benghazi.”

Jeffrey Scott Shapiro and Kelly Riddell pointed out that Senator Rand Paul, Republican from Kentucky, and a potential presidential candidate for 2016 has been very critical of Secretary Clinton’s handling of the 2011 Libya war, stated that the articles demonstrate she is not the right person to lead the country or the nation’s military. Senator Paul stated the following: “Hillary’s judgment has to be questioned – her eagerness for war in Libya should preclude her from being considered the next Commander-in-Chief. We want someone in that office with wisdom and better judgment… We created chaos in Libya – as a result many arms have gone to Syria which are now aiding jihadi terrorists. I couldn’t fathom how Hillary Clinton could become Commander and Chief after this.” A spokesman for Hillary Clinton has declined any comment about the tapes.

The Washington Times reported that on one of the tapes, a Pentagon liaison told a Gadhafi aide that Army General Charles Jacoby, a top aide to Admiral Mullen, “does not trust the reports that are coming out of the State Department and CIA, but there’s nothing he can do about it.” The Pentagon liaison said “I can tell you that the President is not getting accurate information so at some point someone has to get accurate information to him… I think about a way through former Secretary Gates or maybe to Admiral Mullen to get him information.”
Shapiro and Riddell wrote that Representative Louie Gohmert, Republican from Texas, said the following reacting to reports of NATO supported al-Qaeda rebels: “During the Obama-Clinton hunger to enter a bombing war in Libya, some of us knew the rebels included al-Qaeda but we did not know the full extent of their involvement. So we pleaded for U.S. restraint. With bombing in their heart and radical Islamists whispering in their ears, the Obama-Clinton team would not even entertain offers of a ceasefire and peaceful transition of power. While acting under U.N. approval to prevent atrocities, it appears the Obama-Clinton bombing barrages caused atrocities that sent a country into chaos which is continuing today.”

Shapiro and Riddell explained that Congressman Poe stated the following: “As far as I’m concerned Benghazi is not going away. That the U.S. would give in and arm rebels and criminals to overthrow Col. Gadhafi, and then mislead the world on that is shameful. We now have chaos in Libya… it’s the U.S.’ undoing of a country. Gadhafi was no saint, but what we have now are gangsters and jihadists running the country. We have chaos because the U.S. intervened in a deceitful way. Unfortunately, the administration is making more of an effort to protect Hillary Clinton’s involvement than they are in finding out the truth about what was really behind the overthrow of Gaddafi by the U.S.”
Jerome Corsi wrote a recent article titled “Admirals, Generals: Pentagon Tapes Indict Hillary” on WND.
Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama discuss the Libya crisis at a White House press conference in 2012. Both of them committed treason in Lybia.

Corsi explained that tapes of high-ranking Pentagon officials in 2011 strongly criticizing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for leading a State Department “march to war” against Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi and for working with the Muslim Brotherhood confirm the conclusions of the CCB on Benghazi, according to members who spoke to WND.

CCB members said tapes revealed by the Washington Times provide additional evidence to validate the group April 2014 report concluding the Obama administration “changed sides” in Libya. The recordings also indicated the Obama administration rejection an effort by Gadhafi to negotiate his resignation and choosing instead to arm al-Qaida-affiliated terror militias and the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood seeking to forcibly overthrow oust the dictator.

Corsi pointed out that retired four-star Admiral James Lyons’ conclusion the Obama administration could have ousted Gadhafi peacefully by accepting a deal brokered in March 2011 by retired Rear Admiral Chuck Kubic with AFRICOM in Germany. Admiral Lyons stated the following: “The release of the Pentagon secret tapes by the Washington Times validates the CCB interim report that the Libyan war was totally unnecessary, since it now has been validated that Gadhafi was willing to abdicate and that he had no intention of causing a humanitarian crisis, as promoted by Hillary’s State Department.”

Corsi explained that Clare Lopez, a former career operations officer with the CIA and currently vice president for research at the Washington-based Center for Security Policy stated the following: “It is long past time that the Obama administration and especially his then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton come clean about why they were so determined to turn on Gadhafi – our ally in the war against al-Qaida – and instead chose to arm and support al-Qaida militias fighting to overthrow him. It’s critical to note that Gadhafi was actively engaged with Department of Defense officials to arrange discussions about his possible abdication and exile when that promising development was squashed by the Obama White House. The Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi has been asking ‘Why?’ for well over a year now. It is time the American people and the families of those who fought and gave their lives at Benghazi in September 2012 were told why those brave Americans had to die at all, much less die alone with no effort made to save them.”

Corsi explained that Clare Lopez said that among the closest advisers to John Brennan, now head of the CIA, and Dennis McDonough, currently White House chief of staff, when they were on the National Security Council was the son of the Sudanese grand mufti, Imam Mohamed Magid, the president of the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Islamic Society of North America, ISNA. She pointed out that ISNA was listed by the Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation trial, which convicted the organization and its leaders of funding the terrorist organization Hamas. Mohamed Magid, imam at All Dulles Area Muslim Society, near Washington, D.C., is a member of the board of advisers to the Department of Homeland Security’s Countering Violent Extremism working group.

Corsi pointed out that Retired Army Major General Paul E. Vallely, another CCB founding member, told WND in an email that the Washington Times disclosure puts additional pressure on Congressman Trey Gowdy, Republican from South Carolina to subpoena Hillary Clinton and other Obama administration officials to testify soon in public before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

Corsi wrote that General Paul E. Vallely said the following: “Delays by Gowdy are unnecessary at this time. Gowdy can press forward now as he does have sufficient intelligence and documents to call all witnesses and issue subpoenas as necessary. Additional delays will only give the obstructionists in the Obama White House, the State Department and the Democrats in Congress time to thwart the efforts of the select committee. Gowdy needs to call immediately former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Obama administration CIA Director General David Petraeus and former director of both the CIA and the Department of Defense Leon Panetta, as well as General Dempsey, the current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.”

Corsi wrote that Retired Air Force General Thomas McInerney, also a founding member of the CCB, was equally disturbed over the content of the Pentagon recordings revealed by the Washington Times. General Thomas McInerney explained the following: “It becomes obvious these Pentagon tapes reveal a starting point by the Obama administration to start switching sides by taking down Gadhafi when all informed analysts knew that Benghazi was the incubator for radical Islam in sending suicide bombers to Iraq to kill American troops. Why the administration wanted to do this is bewildering, but the evidence continues to grow.” General McInerney added, citing as evidence President Obama’s enthusiastic support for former President Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood in his country, as well as the Obama administration determination to exchange five Muslim “high value targets” from Guantanamo for Army deserter Sargent Bowe Bergdahl, who was held prisoner by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Corsi said that the articles from the Washington Times that revealed the Pentagon recordings also prompted CCB members to comment on the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood on the Obama administration. Clare Lopez pointed out the following: “The war in Libya was a manufactured war produced in part by the influence the Muslim Brotherhood exerted on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, with the Muslim Brotherhood penetrating her office through the influence of Huma Abedin, Clinton’s longtime deputy chief of staff, who transferred to the State Department to serve as Clinton’s aide. Remember that Huma Abedin’s family’s Saudi ‘godfather’ is Abdullah Omar Nasseef, the founder of Rabita Trust, an al-Qaida funding institution that was shut down after 9/11. These were the connections advising our secretary of state – it’s called an influence operation.”

Corsi and others at WND, as well as this writer revealed in his book America in Decline (2014), have written about Huma Abedin’s family origins in the Muslim Brotherhood and her work for a dozen years as an assistant editor for the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs for the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs. The organization was founded by her late father and directed by her mother with the full backing of the Muslim World League, an Islamic organization in the Saudi holy city of Mecca founded by Muslim Brotherhood leaders.


I have stated many times that Obama is a hidden radical Muslim and a traitor. Moreover, he is the architect of the destruction of our nation as well as Libya. The influence of the Muslim Brotherhood on the Obama administration is pervasive and very dangerous to our security. The reason for our country being a superpower in retreat is due to the failed domestic and foreign policies of President Barack Obama.
He projects weakness abroad and all of our enemies have been emboldened. Russia annexed Crimea and invaded military Eastern Ukraine without fear. China is claiming the entire South China Sea and a large part of East 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 oppress 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).

Obama announced the restoration of relations with Cuba on December 17, 2014. He also enacted illegal executive orders and promulgated new rules on Cuba which practically destroyed the embargo in violation of the Helms Burton Law.

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 at 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 and Secretary Clinton entered into a war in Libya under false pretenses and violating the Constitution since Congress did not authorize 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 that of others found a year ago.

The president violated his oath of office and multiple laws by sending weapons to and working with terrorist groups during the civil war in Libya. He continued to violate laws by later sending weapons from Libya to Turkey knowing that those weapons would eventually fall into the hands of al Qaeda-linked terrorist groups fighting in Libya.

Moreover, Obama worked with the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States and Muslim nations to engage 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 for 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.
